Hi.

Be My Valentine

Be My Valentine

 Family flip flop fans

Family flip flop fans

I've never been one for huge public displays of affection.  I sometimes used to think it might be because I was single forever, but even now I'm engaged I've come to realise I don't really like seeing people suck face in the street or people being overly-friendly in restaurants (get a room, guys).

So, with only a few weeks to go, Valentines Day is inevitably on my radar.  Last year I was away with work for the big day, and I will be this year too.  I'm a bit of a closet romantic, so I do like a romantic gesture (Rick, if you're reading...) - but I'm genuinely not too fussed by it all as I think if you really love someone you'd - hopefully - show it every day.

That said, you know I love a gift (see above), and as Rick and I will be going on quite a few adventures this year I think I've found a good one.  

Havaiana piece of my heart

Last year when we were in Hong Kong, Rick's flip flop broke.  He glued it back together for a bit, which worked temporarily, but on the flight back to the UK the toe bit broke so he had to walk through the airport for our connecting flight barefoot.  To say he got strange looks is an understatement....

So, I might go for these, the Havaianas His n Hers love bird flip flops.  The mens design comes with a penguin, while the ladies version is a swan.  Super cute! I have to say, my sister went on honeymoon to Brazil nearly ten years ago now, and bought me a pair of blue Havaianas when she returned (see pic above).  I love them - they're so comfy - and I would still have the same pair now if I hadn't had one of them stolen by a dingo when I was camping in Australia.  That's a story for another time...

Just as an end note - if your Valentine surprises you with a ring this year, you can actually get Havaianas for your wedding party - they even have customisable pins with Mr & Mrs and the like on.  I'm currently checking our wedding budget...
