No there might not be a man showering me with flowers and cards but I'm lucky that over the years I've had some fun evenings celebrating, whether it's the nights out me and a group of single girls have had, honestly hit the pubs on Valentine's Day and there's sure to be a wealth of singletons at your disposal if you're looking or the times with friends enjoying the comforts of home, and that's where Homesense* can be of assistance.
I'm sure you're familiar with Homesense an Aladdin's cave of homeware at affordable prices and you simply do not know what you might find on every visit. Currently I'm looking to update some furniture in my home and enjoying popping into my various local branches and seeing what is offer, waiting for the perfect piece to pop up. Patience is not usually my strong point but in this instance I'm keen to wait.
Perhaps even better than the furniture on offer is the trinkets and those extra somethings that brighten up your home and can help you enjoy a romantic night in whether by yourself, with friends or a loved one. Le Creuset is one of the brands you'll find in Homesense so you can prepare the perfect meal or perhaps you want to gift a photo of you and your beloved and need to find a frame that compliments the image perfectly.
I love the cushions on offer from Homesense and and even at the weekend I had to resist purchasing another two for my lounge having yet to display those I brought a matter of months ago. There are so many wonderful high end home stores around but I bulk at paying in excess of £50 for cushions, in Homesense you can find that similar styles and quality can be found for half that price. If you want to cosy up on the sofa tonight then check out the range on offer at Homesense or perhaps one of their luxurious throws.
If your plans for this evening are of a solo nature then try looking through their beauty stores. At the weekend I spotted the likes of Cath Kidston and Too Faced on the shelves so if you're in need of pampering then Homesense can help with that too - oh and acrylic storage in abundance, and candles, all the candles.
Homesense is particularly fun seasonally, of course of late it's been preparing for the 'day of luuuurve' but Easter is starting to creep in and it reminds me I must get into my parents garage this year and unmask all the treasures I've purchased from Homesense over the years.
If you're looking for a champagne home on a lemonade budget then Homesense can really help you out, from the labels you know like Ralph Lauren and DKNY to lesser known quirkier pieces (I'm still regretting the flamingo lamps I left behind a week or two ago) there is something whatever your style and one or two things you didn't know you needed to you find them.
How will you be celebrating Valentine's Day this evening?
