In Elementary School, we used to make and decorate these Valentines Day boxes and then would bring a special card for everyone in the class. You'd always have a look out for the thick ones because those meant candy inside. It was usually little sugar hearts with messages of adoration like Be Mine, Cutie. I loved the pastel colours and would line them all up and re-read these little messages of Kindness.
As I got older these Valentines Boxes progressed to Mandatory Valentines Day dances. I usually stood in the back or tried to bribe the on duty teachers to let me escape to the library. I remember watching my teeny bopper friends whilst they did the obligatory two step with one each other and feeling a bit left out because it wasnt me doing the two step with one of the boys in the class who I swear they all have cooties anyway.
I am a sucker for girly flicks...Romantic Movies...any sorts. My first was Cinderella when I was 5. I've seen most of these movies....Sleepless in Seattle, the Notebook....my favourites have always been the old movies. Nothing does Romance and Valentines Day like the Classics. I love Casablanca, and have cried like a baby at an Affair to Remember and Breakfast at Tiffany's. With how much I love the oldies...I wonder if I was in 1950's Paris in my past life. I hope if its true I lived the life and ate croissants and pain au chocolat and sad and read my book in a cafe watching the world go by.
It seems like it was just Christmas but Valentines Day is quickly approaching. This holiday as I've explained has a bit of mixed feelings for me. I'd much rather be romanced all year long than getting a dozen roses for £29.99 one day a year. I do like though how there's one day every year where we all focus on Love. I wonder what things would be like if every day was Love day? Makes you wonder how much better our world would be.
Anyway...of course Scentsy has the most gorgeous things for those you love. Scentsy can be for lovers, friends, family, acquaintances....you pick and there's something for everyone. So here's my Gift guide for Valentines Day.

First comes love, then comes Marraige....then comes......
The Bride Warmer....reminds me of the train of a wedding gown. Some say it looks like a bridal bouquet but its absolutely gorgeous dont you think? Perfect for any wedding present or gift for that special someone.
Instead of getting that same old, same old bottle of perfume...why not get something different? Try Scentsy's Solid Perfume Range. This Stick reacts to your own body's chemistry for your own unique Fragrance. Its the perfect size to pop in your bag and take on the go.
Available in a variety of different scents and depending on usage will last anywhere up to a year.
Scentsy have an entire Romance Collection of Fragrances. My Personal Favourite is Eastern Treasures but best sellers are: Love Story, Gardens of Love, and Quiver.
The bars go in your Scentsy Warmer. Worried your gift of Love wont last? Never fear......Scentsy bars last longer than most bars on the market. Because we gently warm our wax, they can hold far more fragrance than other brands.
