Debonaire heart sole heels by Charlotte Olympia, a heartbreaking £545!
I'm all about delicious things when it comes to Valentines day and it seems these are just a few lustful things that caught my eye!
Gianvito Rossi's SS13 collection, check it out here shoe lovers! For the preggo lady in me, I thought these floral trainers would be a stylish casual and comfy alternative to heels and at £35 (from asos) they're a bit of a bargain, no? I love ankle straps courts, these are a little unusual and fun, especially with the contrast heel and metallic toe cap via Kurt Geiger here. The purple colour is also fab!
Whether you're staying in or going out, how about making these delightful little bites of heaven? Recipe below!
Millionaire's Fudge via Weekend Magazine (Guardian UK)

Put the raisins & rum in a bowl, cover and soak for 30 minutes. Line a 20cm (8") tin with baking paper. Break up the chocolate and the cake covering, place in a microwaveable bowl, add the condensed milk and cook on high for 2 minutes. Stir and cook for another minute, stir until the chocolate melts, then stir in raisins and vanilla and pour into the tin. Tap the end of the tin to get rid of trapped air bubbles. Melt the white chocolate and drizzle over the fudge. Scatter over the cranberries or sour cherries, nuts and chill until set. Cut into squares using a hot wet knife.

Whatever you're up to on Valentines day, I hope you all have a lovely time. I will say that this Tweet from Kizzy at The Dainty Dolls House nailed my thoughts on V-day: "I don't celebrate Valentine's Day, love is EVERY day & never found in gifts, but in the heart :)"
For Mr. Perseus and I, everyday is Valentines day! Sending you all lots of love!
