Best Valentine's Day Gifts For The Beauty Lover

Best Valentine's Day Gifts For The Beauty Lover


AD - contains all gifted items, affiliate links and previous brand collabs

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I'm sure they'll be a few people scrambling around to find something for their loved one. 

But when I was planning this Valentine's Day gift guide, I didn't want to go down the conventional route of lot's of romantic gifts because, to be honest, Valentine's Day isn't very conventional any more. 

You have people who don't even notice it at all, and unlike some of the bigger holidays, the 14th February passes by just like another day. 

So this year, I wanted to focus on not just gift's for the beauty-loving lady (or man) in your life, but also for your friends to celebrate Galentine's Day or even an excuse to treat yourself for saying 'well done' for getting through January! 

All of these gifts have very kindly been gifted to me for this post by brands and PR's (which I'm always grateful for) before being roadtested by me to see what's really worth spending your money on this Valentine's Day. Here are my picks...

What's In My Travel Beauty Bag

What's In My Travel Beauty Bag

When I went to Berlin a couple of months ago, it was the first time I had travelled with just a carry-on bag. 

Some may squirm at the idea of being limited to just one small bag, but I decided to relish the challenge. Let me tell you though: it was definitely harder than I thought it was going to be.

Luckily for me being a blogger and all, I end up with a lot of sample size products that are under 100ml that I keep aside for travel. 

The main thing that I struggled with was fitting all my liquids into just one clear bag. Some of you may have had the same problem in the past, where you come to realise how many things you want to bring count as liquids, even if they are gels and balms...

It may have taken me up into the hour before I was due to leave, but I finally managed to whittle all my beauty products into that one clear pouch that I would need for the next week.

So, what made the cut?

Backpacking As A Couple - The Survival Guide

Backpacking As A Couple - The Survival Guide


If you're in a long-term relationship, then you may have already been (or are planning on going) on holiday together. 

With your average holidays being between 1-2 weeks, the likelihood of the two of you falling out a lot is pretty slim, due to you being in each other's pockets for only a small amount of time. 

But what is it like to be in each other's pockets for months? Or even longer? That is the question that you'll end up asking yourself if you plan on backpacking together. 

As wonderful as long-term travel is when you are doing it with your other half, things can sometimes get tense, even to the point of make or break

You'll have probably heard that term a million and one times already, but it honestly couldn't be nearer to the truth. 

Think about this: you're going to be spending every day together, for however many months you plan on backpacking, making decisions that affect the two of you while trying to keep safe and feed yourselves. All of those things can mount up until things get tense, and that is only natural. 

However, there are some things that you can do to ensure that you come back from your trip still as a couple rather than as singletons, and these are the tips that helped me when I went backpacking for 5 months with my boyfriend in 2017.
