Valentine’s Day Is Only Around the Corner

Can you believe Valentine’s Day is approaching? As much of a drag many people think January is, it can’t have gone that slow when we’re in February already! It’s around this time that we see people declaring their love for each other, feeling free and single, or just treating it like any other day of the day. It’s a topic I touched on last year when discussing different views towards Valentine’s Day.

For me, Valentine’s never meant that much to me. It was always nice to see people being loved up and receiving gifts. But I think we should always show affection to those we love every day of the year. That being said it’s still a day that I look forward to, especially as Danny was the first and only man to wish me a happy Valentine’s Day back then. I’m more lucky than ever to still have him by my side today these years later. The list of reasons why I love him is bigger than the 20 I mentioned last year.

My forever love

Our love grows stronger and we become more devoted the more years that go by. And Me and Danny will be moving into a new house which we are extremely excited to make into our home. The contracts are signed, we’ve purchased our couch, a brand new TV amongst many other bags of things. It’s starting to feel so real.

Who reckons I’m going to cry when we the house for the first time? I’m sure I will. When the day arrives, no doubt I’ll be emotions. But it’ll be with high spirits of knowing how happy the rest of my life is going to be with Danny.

Stay posted

Neither of us can contain our excitement. And I look forward to sharing a post all about our moving in journey. Keep a look out on my blog next month to read all about it. The excitement is unreal! For now, you can follow Tasha’s Lifestyle on Twitter for other little updates.

Life Wouldn’t Be the Same Without You

Imagine if there was one person who wasn’t in your life anymore. Someone who shows you the true meaning of love. Can you think about how it would completely change everything? I can and it’s a thought that would make things unbearable if it ever happened. But it also came to me that, as much as I know what people and things mean to me, writing about them reveals just how much.

Thinking about the past, in a good way

Looking back is a big thing for me. This isn’t to dwell on sad times or the wrongdoings. When you think about it, every single mistake you think you’ve ever made, along with the things you could’ve done better, they have made you who you are. Looking back helps me to see how I’ve shaped and grown into the woman I am today. Every single decision no matter how big or small plays a huge part. Thinking about who’s been there along the way make it all the more important.

When they just get you

There’s no one other than Danny who gets me and can figure everything out right to the core when it comes to how I’m feeling. He’s also a pro at knowing what I can achieve and just how far we can make it together. Aside that he’s the most caring, generous and kind hearted person in my life. Every day he does something to show that he is each of those qualities and so much more.

You know when Lilo screams into her pillow after arguing with her sister? Well Danny is my pillow during all of the times I want to let my feelings out. He also gives the most amazing hugs when you want to say nothing at all. He is my everything all in one. And he shows me the best meaning of love.

Life wouldn’t be the same

I can’t imagine accomplishing half of the things I have without Danny by my side. And it’s not just that. Wondering where I would be without him in my life is very difficult to imagine. He says its something I’ll never have to face though. Some might say it’s soppy but if I didn’t get the chance to tell Danny I love him every day and vice versa or know just how much we mean to each other, loving someone wouldn’t be as meaningful.

Since the moment we became closer than friends, he changed my life forever.

Message of this short and sweet post: never take people for granted. Live for the small moments as well as the big ones. Be there for others as much as they are there for you. And don’t ever let go of the people who love you just as much as you love them.

Everyone has their own meaning of love and Daniel has shown me what mine means to me.

The Perfect Bouquet of Roses from Prestige Flowers

This is a gifted post in collaboration with Prestige Flowers, who are voted number 1 for next day flower delivery in the UK. If you’re looking for some distinctive flowers, they have a wide range of hand-tied bouquets to fit every occasion.

A lovely lady from Prestige Flowers named Maryam got in touch with me following the form I filled out for their assignment opportunity that was listed on Bloggers Required. She gave me the great news of accepting the collaboration.

Delivery and packaging of the roses

The bouquet arrived only a couple of days after my email conversation with Maryam. It was packaged in a secure Prestige Flowers branded box. Once I opened the delivery box, I found a note, a flower care guide, a wine voucher with discount code and a £5 gift voucher to spend at Prestige Flowers. How generous!

12 roses and more…

As soon as I seen the dozen of Rhodos Roses I thought, “Wow they are so beautiful.” They were perfectly blossomed with the deep romantic red colour you would expect. And the handmade bouquet comes tied neatly with twine and shiny white wrapping paper.

What’s more, is that I discovered two more gifts inside the box. This was a surprise as I wasn’t expecting to find anything else. Maryam was very kind to include a cute cuddly teddy bear and a box of chocolates. Usually you receive a small bear with flowers but this one was fairly bigger.

It even has its own name (Noah) with a birth month and message on his tag. The box of ‘Valley Chocolates’ are so yummy! You have a selection of white, dark and milk chocolate to enjoy.

Receiving these gifts absolutely made my day

I can’t stop looking at my gifts.  They make me feel so special! I 100% recommend Prestige Flowers.  Their customer service is excellent and the gifts are gorgeous. They have lots of deals on at the moment so miss out – visit Prestige Flowers’ website.

A big thank you to Prestige Flowers for this collaboration.

Valentine’s Edition: 20 Reasons I’m So Glad You’re Mine

You don’t need me to tell you that its Wednesday 14th February – Valentine’s Day. I’m sure some of you are thinking, “Oh here we go again. That day of the year where couples are devoting their love to one another.” Go back over 5 years ago, Valentine’s Day was just an ordinary day to me. I wasn’t one of those people who felt depressed because I was single on this one day of the year as well as the rest.

I never had a boyfriend, a date, a bouquet of flowers, a card etc. on Valentine’s Day. I wasn’t even one of those kids where their parents would write a card out for them. I probably wouldn’t have understood why if they ever did. So what’s changed since?

As I’ve already told you, I remember the first time someone wished me a happy Valentine’s Day. And even more so, it was so special to me. It wasn’t a random kind of text message. It wasn’t just a “Aww thanks!” moment. Ever since me and Danny got together there have been so many things I wish could’ve happened. But we just have to be glad that we are where we are today and we made it happen through believing in each other and the love we have for one another.

Here’s why I’m so glad your mine, not just on Valentine’s Day but for the rest of our lives.

I know you’re someone I can count on

You’re my rock whenever I’m at my lowest or just need a little push

You see me in a way that nobody else does

We can’t argue – we prefer a bit of silence that lasts about half an hour

We tackle challenges together

You’re the easiest person to laugh and joke with, even if it is at me

You look at me like nobody else does

Whenever someone asks me about the future, you’re there

Because you make me happy in every single way

We get the chance to miss each other

And we also get the chance to feel excited

We look forward to things together

We want to help each other chase our dreams

We motivate each other, because we both want nothing but happiness for each other

The one person I always wanted, wants me to

If we made it to where we are today, we can make it anywhere

You can make me feel like the most beautiful girl in the world

I know that I can confide it you with no need for embarrassment

I’ve got you and you’ve got me

There’s nowhere else on earth I’d rather be

It’s amazing to think that I didn’t think you’d want me for more than two weeks. But when I look back, you asked me several times about being in a relationship. To the compliment you paid me back in 2010 to the many, many more along the way, you’ve everything and more that I’ve ever dreamed of.
