Valentines day gift Ideas for single ladies

This isn’t going to be a BS ‘down with Valentine’s day, I don’t need a man’ post, where I just wallow in self-pity…but rather a list of Valentines Day gift ideas to celebrate your single BFFS, your mum, sister or even yourself! (as if you need an excuse to buy yourself ‘gifts’)

While there are things I hate about Valentine’s Day, there a things I love about it too. I don’t like that every store/brand/restaurant assumes everyone is in a relationship, but I do love all the cutesy heart-shaped things and special release products that are in stores around this time! I’ve always been obsessed with heart shapes, drawing them on my notepads in school just because I like the way they look. I will always believe in romance, even if it never happens for me.

Glasshouse Verona- A Dozen Roses mini candle, 60g  RRP$21.95- I love the smell of roses, so I knew straight away that I would love this candle! It is definitely a ‘true’ rose scent, but along with the other notes, it isn’t overbearing. It is available in the large size- 350g and mini-60g (which is surprising, LE candles hardly ever get released as minis!) The thing I love the most about Verona, is the beautiful jar that has silver cursive writing all over it!

IMG_0034Limited Editions Marquee Heart Light- Red from Target, RRP $40- As soon as I saw this marquee light I knew I had to get one. I have seen heart Marquee lights at a few different stores, but the Target one looked like the best quality (and was one of the cheaper ones!), Target also has other marquee lights in different shapes…star, ampersand (&) and arrow.

IMG_0014Beyonce Heat Wild Orchid EDP 50ml, RRP$59 from Priceline and other perfume stockists- This fragrance is gorgeous! I it is a fruity-floral scent, but without being sickly sweet. It smells fairly unique too…sometimes perfumes can smell similar to other scents. I purchased mine from Chemist Warehouse when they had a sale on, for $39.95. It’s in a pretty magenta bottle too!

IMG_0022FUJIFILM Instax Mini 8 Camera- Pink RRP $99- I purchased this camera early last year and I love it. It takes clear wallet sized Polaroids and has a few different settings. It comes in a few different colours too. You can now also buy a photo album to keep your prints in, from Target!

IMG_0019Hope you have a great Valentine’s Day, whether you are in a relationship or not!

Note: I realised that I left apostrophes out of ‘Valentine’s Day’, this was just for SEO purposes…back off grammar Nazis ;)

 

 

 

My Favourite Tonight Show Aussie Guest moments

I am a big fan of the Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon and I love when Aussie guests are on the show. Seeing as it’s Australia day today, I thought I would share my favourite Tonight show Aussie guest moments.

In no particular order.

Russell Crowe teaching Jimmy Fallon how to speak in an Australian Accent

OK, so this wasn’t a moment on the show, but a hilarious exchange between Russell Crowe and Jimmy during filming of promos for ABC2. Russell tries to explain how to do an Aussie accent.

Pool Bowling with Hugh Jackman

This was a really fun new game Jimmy played with Hugh Jackman last year, hopefully they’ll bring it back again this year! The most hilarious part was Hugh trying to cheat, but failed because he put one of his own balls (no not those ones, get your mind out of the gutter!) back on the table.

Liam Hemsworth and Jimmy strut in high heels

I never thought I would see Jimmy Fallon wearing high heels on the show! It was hilarious. Liam could walk quite well in heels. Jimmy too, but his were way shorter so he had an advantage. Try some stilettos next time, Jimmy!

THAT Nicole Kidman Interview

If you watch the show regularly (and haven’t been living under a rock), you know which interview I mean. It was all over social media and because Nicole’s an Aussie, it of course was mentioned on our news and morning shows. I don’t normally get enjoyment from seeing others’ discomfort, but this whole interview was awkwardly hilarious. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Jimmy’s face turn so red!

 

 There you have it, a few of my favourite Tonight show Aussie guest moments. I hope you enjoy watching them as much as I did.

Happy Australia Day to all the Aussies reading! I hope you have a great day with family and friends, stay safe if traveling.

XO XO
