I've never really been big on Valentine's Day (probably because I don't have a boyfriend, which is pretty much an essential component of such celebrations, eh?) but I don't hate it either, and I appreciate heart shaped things as much as the next girl. It's highly unlikely any potential suitors are going to show up at my door this afternoon bearing gifts, so instead here is what I would buy myself because I LOVE ME.

I am so in love with this Topshop heart print dress, it would be perfect for the Scottish Bloggers Valentine's Party, no? Sadly it seems to be sold out online at the moment, but I may have to nip in to Topshop next week and see if I can find one lurking in store. Failing that, I might have a look for the Motel dress instead, although it looks a bit indecently short. Why do you always do this Motel?! :(

I mentioned in my last outfit post that my going out shoes were in a bit of a sorry state, and this New Look pair seem like they'd be a good replacement. I always find New Look heels pretty comfy, and I like how these ones are fairly plain so they'll go with everything, but not too boring because of the stud detail. Whilst we're on the topic of accessories, how much of a beauty is the bright pink Accessorize bag? I've been thinking of buying a coloured bag for ages as it would be a really easy way to brighten up my otherwise all-black outfits. Very tempted to order this one!

Makeup-wise, I really fancy trying the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette. I'm not really an eyeshadow sort of person, so the previous palettes didn't interest me, but for some reason matte eyeshadows seem really appealing to me. Still can't decide if I would actually use it or not, so am managing to hold off ordering for the moment. I'm sure, however, that MAC's Speak Louder lipstick would get a lot of use so it will definitely be getting purchased next time I'm treating myself to some MAC things.

And finally, Valentine's Day wouldn't be complete with a bit of novelty tack would it? Lipstick hip flask? Yes please. Heart-shaped cake stand? Oh, why not.
