Valentine’s Day lingerie – Top underwear picks to wear on V-Day night

My underwear drawer is just as important to me as my wardrobe. I absolutely love treating myself to new lingerie because it always makes  feel amazing whenever I’m wearing one of my favourite sets.

I can’t tell you exactly why that is… but for some reason if I start the day in nice undies I’m always in such a good mood.

Does anyone else get that… or am I just a weirdo?

I’ve selected some of my favourite items that I think will be the perfect under garments for my Valentine’s Day outfit. Check out my OOTD for inspiration on what to wear this Valentine’s Day.

The most romantic day of the year has got to be all about lace, sparkle, pretty floral prints and romantic shades of red and pink colours.

Here are my top picks…

Triangle bras

These Kylie Jenner inspired bras are so stunning and bang on trend this season. The pretty floral prints and lace fabric will bring some girlineas and sexiness to your date night.

  1. Dark red lace bra , Victoria’s Secret
  2. Grey floral bra, Primark
  3. Cream and colourful print bra, Accessorize

Lacy thongs

I am all about lacy knickers! Lace in any colour makes me so happy and they just look so pretty in matching underwear sets.

  1. Turquoise, Victoria’s Secret
  2. Hot pink, H&M
  3. Red lace, H&M
  4. Pastel blue, Primark

Push-up bra

To really get your date hot under the collar or to show off your assets in your favourite top – a little bit of padding is just what you need.


I absolutely adore my Victoria’s Secret red push-up bra because of it’s low cup, lace fabric and sparkly gems (glitter is a MUST in my undies drawer). And of course the optional red clip on bow for the back to make you feel like a real VS angel!

I’m absolutely obsessed with Victoria’s Secret underwear but I have never ever bought items in England because they are SO overpriced. All these stunning VS pieces were less than £10 on my trips to America- what an absolute bargain!

You can obviously guess… my suitcase was stuffed full of bras and knickers.  I can only imagine what security must have thought!

You really don’t have to break the budget with buying nice underwear I promise. High-street stores like H&M and Primark offer gorgeous lingerie for such a small price.

I hope this post has helped give you a little inspiration for your lingerie choice this Valentine’s Day. 💕 Check out my post for homemade peanut butter cups to treat your loved one (or yourself!) and my recipe for pink cocktails.

DIY: how I glammed up my mittens

I don’t know about you but when it comes to buying clothes and accessories, I always have the perfect vision of an item I want in my head and expect to see it in the shop, but can never find exactly what I am looking for.

After loosing one of my FAVOURITE pairs of mittens and with the weather being so freezing, I was desperate to find a new set of gloves just as fab! What I loved about my old pair was that they were just so girlie and cute with lace and bows. So I was a women on a mission to find a new favourite…or create my own.

The best I could find were these navy blue finger less gloves from Accessorize in the sale at £7.50. I loved the design of the sequins and gems, and the silver and pastel blue colours of them too, but whenever I wore them the pretty pattern was hidden under my coats and jumpers 😦

So I decided why not create my own pattern for the top of the gloves and to my surprise it worked out very easy and therapeutic to do.

My grandma is AMAZING when it comes to things like this- she can literally make anything, from handbags and chunky knit cardigans, to ornaments and plates. I took her out for coffee and asked her for some inspiration and some help.

She showed me her collections of haberdashery- I was in ribbon and lace heaven. The funnest bit was deciding what pattern I wanted to create which I kind of already had in mind but now with so many choices of different coloured ribbon, lace and cute beads, I found it hard to decide. I did get a bit carried away with testing ideas but eventually found the perfect look for my mittens.

I wanted to stick with the colour scheme of blues and created this design:

  • Electric blue ribbon
  • Pretty white lace
  • Sparkly blue and silver thin ribbon
  • Powder blue bow

It was so easy to do considering I am nowhere near as talented as my grandma! You just need some cotton to match the colours your adding together (I used blue and white), needles for sowing, pins for keeping the pattern in place and a good eyesight for threading!

My grandma gave me her adorable foam jumper to stick my pins and needles in so I couldn’t lose them- and believe me they are easy to lose sight of.

Once I had sown everything to the large bit of blue ribbon I then sowed it onto the mittens and I was so pleased with the final look!

My sister loved them so much she’s even asked me to decorate her a pair.  I hope you like them too!
