Love is in the air

Valentine's Day... Commercialised? Many of you would agree. Solely overrated. I would be lying to myself if I said I didn't think so, even just the slightest. But in all honesty, the day is all about L.O.V.E (Good on ya, St. Valentine); though I still feel that should not be the case as one should express their adoration to their loved ones regularly and not use this occasion as a means to do that.

Nevertheless, I think its sweet. Hopeless romantic (I raise my hand)... finding myself melt as I watch the gents with bunches of flowers or huge Clinton bags ready to give their partner or listening to my friends speak of their Valentine's experience the following day. The effort and the passion you see is such a beautiful thing. 

I had my share of a wonderful evening with my other half too. Very little but the right amount of perfect. Booked a spot at a restaurant, Grace Bar; a nice bar/ restaurant just off Shaftesbury Avenue. I've been there before with my girls a couple of Christmases ago and enjoyed it there, so I thought the place was suitable for the occasion. We had a 3 course meal, all mouth-watering dishes and quenched our thirst with a bottle of white. Talked, laughed and drank the night away - it was special. I then came home in time to spend the rest of the evening with my parents and my Auntie, which completed my day.
