Be a Valentine with Flowers for Everyone!

Be a Valentine with Flowers for Everyone!

Valentines Day is next week people! Next Week!! Whether you love the day or not… thing is for sure….everyone loves love. One of the best things I love about the day is being able to involve our children in the fun. Ella is probably the biggest lover of flowers on the planet, and Hudson….well he has been taught well by his Father in the past! Walking in the door with a beautiful bunch of flowers….giving them to the kids, who have then given them to me. It’s a little act of love that never gets old in my eyes.

One of the hardest parts about Valentines Day is getting to a store to purchase quality flowers. You have to line up and often end up with flowers that wilt over night! It is my pleasure therefore to share with you a fantastic Australian online store, who has put together a range of quality products for Valentines Day…that you can order online. Flowers for Everyone is just that. Flowers FOR everyone! Simply head to their website and choose your favourite gift, personalise with a little message and have them sent to your love, no matter where they are. Whether it’s flowers on their own, or add a candle, chocolate…or even a bottle of champagne!

As a teacher, I have to admit…there is nothing better than receiving flowers at work! Makes my heart sing! Get in early this week…or send your ‘loved one’ a little nudge!




Valentine’s Day from the Kids

Valentine’s Day from the Kids

Last year I shared some fabulous Valentine’s Day craft ideas for kids to create for their Dad, Mum, Grandparent and anyone whom they love! Last year Ella created this gorgeous LOVE canvas for her Dad, and not only did he absolutely love it, it was super cheap, easy to make and lots of fun too…

There is simply nothing like receiving a gift of love on Valentine’s Day, but what could totally top that is a handmade gift from your child. This year, we have another little person to help make a gift for their Daddy and I can’t wait to see the look on their Dad’s face when he receives it. So with that, here are some of my fabulous finds from Pinterest for making something with your kids for someone they love. Each are linked to their original source on Pinterest.

From the bottom of my heart, to the tip of my toes..

An early Friday Find: Valentines Day Kids’ style

An early Friday Find: Valentines Day Kids’ style

With Valentines Day coming tomorrow, there is always much hype around the day being ‘commercialised’ and ‘tacky’. I say make the day about family, and do something from the heart. Given the fact that Dan and I are parents now, I couldn’t think of a better way to express our love, by including Ella. I thought I’d share some great Pinterest ideas I have found that are simple, inexpensive and really come from the heart…

‘Thumb body loves you’ – definition of cuteness…


Handmade heart – who wouldn’t feel loved?


‘You light up my life’ card – simple and fun to make..


‘Be mine’ valentines card – hands and hearts combine…


LOVE…a gorgeous art idea for family…


‘You’re one in a Million’…a yummy valentine treat


and finally my favourite…a beautiful card that says it all…


So whether you plan to go out or stay in, these Valentines day gifts will be sure to make anyone feel loved.

I hope you have a lovely day tomorrow.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
