My Valentine's Day

Hope everyone had a nice Valentine's day, mine was lovely as I had the day off so went for a spot of vintage shopping with my mum before going to see the BF after he finished work. I brought him a little Valentine's cupcake from work, which was sooo pretty with its sparkly heart decoration. This is the card that I bought for him. I don't like gushy teddy bears and things on cards so I went for something quite simple, but I think it says alot :)

I also liked that it had a sort of retro feel to it, I thought it was perfect, and would even look good framed afterwards. Anyway, the BF had told me that we had to be somewhere at 7pm, so I thought it might be something special, so I got all dressed up in the beautiful maroon coloured dress that he bought me for Christmas. If I'm honest I had been saving it for Valentine's day as its too nice to wear for everyday.

I also did some curls in my hair as it made me feel more "dressy". The cutout detailing on the dress is just so pretty and its a very flattering fit - just snug enough so that I am not tempted to overdo it on the Valentine's chocs!

We shared the cupcake - it was delicious :)

Ok...I say shared - but I ate most of it! 

Then the nicest thing happened...
We swapped cards.......

We'd only gone and bought each other the exact same card! He actually said he had a feeling we might buy the same one, and funnily enough so did I. He also had thought it would look good framed too. 
I think it means we are a perfect match!

But inside my card were these tickets. I was soooo surprised and excited too, so we headed off down to the West End to have dinner and see Mamma Mia!

Here I am ready to go!
We had a lovely (yet slightly rushed!) dinner at The Strada, then went to see the show!
It was fab, highly recommended, and so much fun!
Hope you all had a wonderful day too!
