I guess Valentines Day got put on the back burner a bit with the excitement of London Fashion Week, but I thought I'd post about these lovely, lovely cupcakes that my lovely, lovely boyfriend surprised me with. Usually on Valentines Carl and I don't really buy gifts for each other, although presents are nice (and my best friend got the most gorgeous Michael Kors watch), I just personally think buying gifts is a bit over the top and I'm more than happy with a thoughtful card - proof that I'm nowhere near as high maintenance as my boyfriend would have you believe! However, this year Carl surprised me with six gorgeous cupcakes. The boy knows the most direct route to my heart involves baked goods, but the icing on the cake (ahah-ahah) was that these were personalised cupcakes made especially for me! He was super thoughtful in choosing some of my favourite treats to go on top (such as Toffee Popcorn) and fillings such as jam (because of my love of jam doughnuts) and they were soooo yummy! I'm always a bit cynical in the lead up to V-Day (it's so commercialised/unnecessary yadda yadda yadda) but when the day came I was super excited and Carl treated me like a princess <3 we went to our favourite Indian restaurant which was perrrrrfect.
What did you get up to for Valentines? Do you like it, or do you think it's a bit excessive? x
