It’s Valentine’s Day next week, in case you have forgotten (difficult to with all stores advertising, using red hearts in all shapes and forms).
Since I don’t have a loved one to celebrate with this year, I thought I’d treat myself instead. I mean, Valentine’s is for everyone so why not making my own heart a little bit happier with some lovely underwear and a pyjamas set?
Floral Pyjamas Set
When I saw this floral pyjamas set from Matalan, I knew I had to get it. I’m normally not a romantic person, falling for floral patterned clothes but this pyjamas set* made me happy to look at and it’s even prettier in real life.
The set includes a cami vest and shorts, both made of satin with dark pink lace trims. The vest features a pink bow and gold heart at the front (so cute) and adjustable straps which is great as I’m quite short but still need a larger size (L) for my boobs. Thanks to the adjustable straps, I can make the vest sit perfectly. I really like that the shorts have half an elasticated waist, it makes the whole set and the shorts look a lot more flattering.
This lovely set is available for Matalan’s Valentine’s collection for only £16. A perfect gift for yourself, a friend or girlfriend.
Black Bra with Heart Pattern
I’m so proud of myself that I’m sticking to my New Year’s resolution of investing in new underwear and this is the latest bra added to my collection.
I’ve never bought a non-padded bra* before and that’s because I think I would look like Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston’s character in Friends, in case you have missed that great show) showing my nipples through my jumper, and that’s just not me.
I took a chance with this bra, because it looked so beautiful with the velvet hearts pattern. To my surprise, wearing a non padded bra isn’t bad at all, this is really comfortable and I don’t have the problem of showing my nipples so maybe more non-padded bras will fill up my wardrobe in the future.
Just like the pyjamas set, this bra has lovely details; a gold heart and velvet bow in the centre, lace trim and comfortable, adjustable velvet straps. It’s only £12, which is a really valuable price for underwear (just to my taste). Another great gift idea which you can buy here.
How are you celebrating Valentine’s this year? Have you bought anyone special a Valentine’s gift? Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
