You either love it or hate it and personally I love it. No I'm not talking about Marmite, I'm talking about Valentines day and its just a couple of days away. If you are on the hunt for something a little more intimate and naughty this Valentines day then you have came to the right place because I have teamed up with Lovehoney to show you some super sexy ideas to spice up your February 14th.

My top pick for couples that want to delve into the world of sex toys (If you haven't already) is the Lovehoney Magic Wand which is a personal favourite. Its perfect for both beginners and experts and is extremely easy to use. Simply plug it in, hand it to your partner to control and you're both sure to have a great time! Of course this isn't just for couples, Its also perfect for singles and solo use so be sure to invest in one of these Magic Wands for plenty of intense oohs and ahhs.

New lingerie is always a great way to make yourself feel super sexy and to get your lovers heart racing. Lovehoney have tons of smoking hot sets to chose from but as soon as I saw this Moonglight Basque set I knew this was the one. With black lace detailing and rich, wine satin its sure to ensure that your special someones eyes are fixated on you all night long.

Candle-lit massages are the epitome of relaxation and are great way to to get closer to your partner during a night of passion. I picked out this dreamy Vanilla Scented Massage Oil which is edible and sure to relax your tense muscles. Get your partner to smooth it all over you and feel yourself sink into the bed - pure bliss!

OOTD - The Polka Dot Wrap Dress

While I usually solely focus on Beauty I have decided that as its a new year I'm taking a different approach to blogging by broadening my content. I have decided to start posting 'Outfit of the days' every now and again as I personally love to read fashion posts.

I'm going to keep this post short and sweet because I am not particularly a fan of long winded posts and I'm not about to become that blogger that talks shit just for the sake of a 'long' blog post. If I ever get to such blog posts (depending on the subject) I never bother reading, I simply click the X in the right hand corner of my screen. 

On to today's attire I picked up some really cute things recently so decided to include some of those pieces in today's post. I have been loving wrap dresses lately as I think they flatter every figure and can be worn Day/Night and also great in any season. I picked up this Polka dot wrap dress from ASOS and just love how it looks on. As it has been very cold lately I decided to add some tights and these Black suede, block heel boots with studded detailing which were in the sale from New Look. Lastly I threw a biker jacket on top for a grungy feel and completed my look with a designer bag.

Review: Original Patty Men

My boyfriend and I are big foodies and have been on the hunt for some great independent joints to eat at in the Birmingham area as opposed to going to the usual chain restaurants which I find boring and a lot of the time, unappetizing. I had never been to O.P.M before despite having heard of the brand for some time and having seen them on social media being shared by friends and followers. My boyfriend however had been a couple of times previously (Ofc he had) but I lost my O.P.M virginity on Sunday and i'd be lying if I said I wasn't looking forward to it and hadn't spent all week stalking their Instagram page. Before you ask yes ofc I had already checked out the menu and already knew what I was going to order before I even stepped foot in the joint. Now first of all the building is a little out of the way and in quite a strange location that looks somewhat like a warehouse on the exterior but I thought this was kinda cool despite it being a little out of the way. The interior is super cool, Again a warehouse feel. With lamps scattered around, Cool artwork and great music being played (Royal Blood, QOTSA, Rage Against The Machine to name a few) - I was instantly sold and I hadn't even tasted the food yet.

We seated ourselves and were quickly greeted by the friendly staff that gave us our menus. They told us of the specials and gave us a couple of minutes to figure out what we wanted. It didn't take long for us to figure it out cause obviously I already knew what I wanted and although Jon was torn between two choices he finally decided and we made our order. It probably took around ten to fifteen minutes to get our food which isn't a bad time to wait at all.

I had the 'Double bacon cheese' - Aged longhorn beef patties, Maple coated bacon, American cheese, Fresh red onion, Lettuce, Pickle, Ketchup and Mustard. To start with, It was huge and I had no idea how on earth I was going to get my mouth around it but I just went at it the best way I could. The beef was juicy and just the right amount of pinkness and It was messy, just the way I like it. It was a really tasty burger and I enjoyed every single mouthful. Jon had 'Pineapple Express' - Aged longhorn beef patties, Maple coated bacon, Lettuce, Roquito chilli peppers, Fresh tomato, Cheddar cheese and House pineapple hot sauce and it is safe to say that he also enjoyed it too. We also had some O.D.B fries on the side - Triple cooked fries with O.P.M spice mix, Creamy house slaw, Siracha Mayo, Crispy fried onions and Fresh spring onions. We both love loaded fries and these were a winner that I would most definitely order again.

Overall, We both had a great time at Original Patty Men. These guys are putting Birmingham on the food map and we will deffo be making another visit there very soon!

USA Christmas Haul - Gifts from my boyfriend.

So its been a good while since I posted. Five months to be exact but it was a much needed break that I needed to focus on myself, friends, family and leave the blogging until I was ready to fall back in love with it all over again. But I'm back and thought I would start my first post of 2018 by showing y'all what I got from my boyfriend for Christmas. Yes, I know it is a little late to be sharing Christmas hauls but I am going to do so anyway.

My boyfriend has spent the last few months in good ol' US of A. Spending time in both Orlando, Florida and California, Los Angeles (Super jelly). He came back just before Christmas armed with a ton of gifts ready for me to open on Christmas day and boy did he spoil me. I'm not going to go into detail about each present because I don't know any info about them ie: The price or where the gifts are from cos obviously they were gifts but if you guys do have any questions or thoughts then please don't hesitate to share below in the comments.

He put such tremendous thought into each gift and I was completely overwhelmed when I unwrapped each gift. The great thing about my guy is he really takes the time to make things special and puts in a shit ton of effort. He is also a fabulous listener. Put it this way, Hes a keeper.

My Mini Break in London.

So two weeks ago my partner and I took a little break in London for a few days and I had such an amazing time that I really wanted to share my experience with you lovely people. London has always been a city that I was never really bothered about until I actually went for myself and during my short time there I really began to appreciate how much of a fantastic city it is and saw how much it has to offer.

So on Monday we caught the train to Waterloo and arrived at around 2pm and headed for our hotel to drop off our bags so we could go and do some sight-seeing. The hotel we stayed at was a Travelodge just ten minutes from the station where we had booked one of the Super Rooms which was a little more swanky than the average rooms (See here for more info). We were both starving so went for a Nandos (cheeky!) which also wasn't far from our hotel. After we filled our tummies we went to St. Paul's Cathedral which is one of the most famous and recognizable sights in London. It has been featured in many films such as Mary Poppins, London Has Fallen and Thor: The Dark World. We didn't go inside as there was a visitor fee of £18 so instead we walked around its gardens and took in its stunning exterior. We didn't get much else done as we had to rush back to the hotel and get ready as we had reservations at The Ritz for 7:30 (or so we thought..) Once we were ready we booked our Uber to The Ritz and walked out of the hotel dressed up to the nines and panicked a little as we thought we were going to be late, but we arrived just on time and were greeted at the door by a fine gentleman in a top hat! Long story short, my darling boyfriend got the bloody day wrong so we headed back the hotel and slipped into something more comfortable and went for a walk to the London Eye which was closed by the time we got there but I got some snaps of it anyway. After that we went for a walk in Covent Garden and visited the M&M shop which I enjoyed cos, chocolate.

This day was a little more eventful as we managed to get a lot more stuff done. We started at the London Dungeons which was a brilliant experience and one that every single person should do when in LDN! The actors put on such brilliant performances and it was great to learn about the history of London in such a fun way. Next we took a long walk past the Houses of Parliament and the iconic Big Ben and Westminster Abbey (breathtakingly stunning) to Buckingham Palace where I got a little excited at the guards in their cute hats and red coats. We both hadn't eaten so headed to the Hard Rock Cafe which is such A cool place featuring memorabilia from the likes of Eric Clapton, Queen and Pink Floyd. The whole vibe in that place is awesome with great music, amazing food and friendly waitresses. I went for the Hickory Smoked Ribs which were amaaazing and JT had The Texan which was pulled Pork served on a brioche bun with crispy fried JalapeƱos, onions, Monterey Jack cheese and barbecue sauce. Both meals were served with Fries, Cowboy Beans and Coleslaw. JT also wanted onion rings which were the biggest I've seen! Next we headed to Tonight Josephine for cocktails which is literally THE cutest bar that I have ever visited. Everything is Pink, sparkly and super girly and their cocktails are to die for! Happy hour was between 5-7 and featured 2 for 1 cocktails so JT ended up with the same drink as me.. Possibly the girliest drink he has ever had the pleasure of sippin' "The Lovepotion No.10" which consisted of Bombay Sapphire Gin, Fresh Strawberry, Fresh Lemon juice, Pineapple syrup and Processco, yummmm! After cocktails, We went back to the hotel to freshen up for our reservations at The Ritz (which happened to be the right date, bravo!) Afternoon Tea at The Ritz is something I would definitely recommend and I am going to write up a full review of my experience so watch this space.

As this was our last day we wanted to squeeze in everything we wanted to do that we hadn't had time for the previous two days and although it rained literally all day, we managed to get a fair bit done. We started our day with food, obviously. We visited Joe's Southern Table and ordered Buffalo Chicken bites, Chilli cheese fries, Creamy mashed potatoes and THE BEST Mac n Cheese that I have ever tasted. If you're in London then it is definitely a place to check out. Trust me, you wont be disappointed. We then headed to Camden and had a little gander around and took some snaps and then me being a huge Potter fan wanted to check out Kings Cross station. I visited the shop on Platform Nine and Three quarters but didn't end up buying anything just because I was hot, felt claustrophobic and didn't want to wait in a line for half an hour to pay for my goods. If you do find your way there, then be prepared to wait in a huge line and get squished from the amount of people inside. Next we went to Harrods where I purchased a Christmas ornament as that was the only thing that didn't come with a hefty price tag. If you want to go on a spree in Harrods then you sure as hell better take some serious £££.

There was so much more that we both wanted to do but we just didn't have the time. I'd love to pay another visit to this wonderful city in the near future so we can tick those things off our list. Overall, the three days that we spent together were wonderful and neither of us wanted to come home. Our little break was simply perfect and one that I would love to do again soon.
