This time of the year has all of us in love. Even those that are self-proclaimed Valentine’s Day boycotters, I know deep down inside you love the pink and red palettes that are showcased in every corner when February hits. It is hard to imagine a world without love. As much as we say we don’t need Valentine’s Day to show our love to our loved ones the sad truth is we do. We get so caught up in our daily routines that we forget to show our appreciation every now and then. Time has a funny way of slipping through our fingers. Kamiran and I are guilty of that. Especially since moving in together our lives are even more interconnected, and it is so much easier to fall into a routine where you forget how grateful you are of one another.
That’s why I love Valentine’s Day and finding a reason to dress up. With the help of Ted Baker we found a perfectly fitted suit for Kamiran and the most beautifully designed little black dress (FEIFEI) for me. The top of my dress with its intricate lace embroidery and the most beautiful pleated tulle bottom; this dress has romance written all over it.It is always hard to come up with options of what to wear on Valentine’s day, but Ted Baker is always a good start to your search. You can never go wrong with the suits, and according to Kamiran he has never bought a suit that didn’t need to be fitted, but not this one. It was the perfect fit. So if your man is looking for a hustle free – ready to wear purchase Ted Baker is a safe choice.
We are also slightly obsessed with watches. Time as a concept on its own has played a very important factor in the shaping of our relationship and even us being together. In more ways than I can explain, time is very close to our hearts. So every year Kamiran knows that a watch is coming his way. This year I opted for the Daniel Wellington Dapper Reading 38mm with rose gold details and a black strap watch. It is hard to tell because of the reflection of the light but I love the watch I picked for Kamiran because of its blue dials. Lightweight like a feather, not flashy whatsoever, with the right amount of luxury and masculinity; I knew I had to get one for myself as well. For myself, I got the Classic Black York 36mm with rose gold details and a dark brown crocodile strap. Matchy-matchy we are, but both watches suit our personalities.
