Make February a month to fall in love with, with these cute ideas full of little pick me ups and sweet romantic gestures, to lift your mood and add a dash of girly magic to your month. I hope they make your days that little bit sweeter and brighter!
Read a classic romance novel like The Great Gatsby, Pride & Prejudice or Jane Eyre.
Tie a silky ribbon in your hair and feel like a Blair Waldorf princess. I love this blush pink ribbon from L. Erikson, this powder blue bow from Urban Outfitters, this soft ivory ribbon from Free People or make your own with a roll of satin craft ribbon.
Wear soft shades of pink on your nails to make you feel delicate, pretty and polished.
For a manicure pink I love Essie Ballet Slippers, YSL Rose Romantique and Dior Tra La La. For an opaque blush pink I adore OPI Mod About You ~ this was my nail colour of choice during my Disney World trip so it holds special memories.
Make cute teddy bears and heart shaped chocolate box decorations for your cupcakes, using my YouTube tutorial I created for Valentine’s Day.
Bake heart shaped sugar cookies using this Passion For Baking recipe, and ice them with soft baby pink icing. Add sweet sayings on top like ‘I ♥ U‘, ‘Be Mine’, ‘True Love’, ‘You & Me’, ‘Forever’, ‘J’Adore’, ‘XOXO’ . Or try your hand at baking some Pink Fondant Fancies by The Frosting Fairy topped with delicate sugar roses.
Practice your calligraphy and write a love letter on luxury paper, sign it with a lipstick print and seal it with a wax seal stamp.
Visit a cute cafe with dreamy pink interiors and pretty floral decor for some girly sweet treats.
Think darling cupcakes at Peggy Porschen, macarons and Marie Antoinette tea at Ladurée, pink unicorn lattes at Saint Aymes, and fresh pastries at Élan Cafe. Wear that cute outfit you’ve been saving and take your favourite handbag to make you feel like a pretty princess.
Plan a sweet Galentine’s evening
Invite your closest girlfriends, make a batch of white chocolate covered strawberries, pour flutes of pink champagne, and watch your favourite classic girly films. The Notebook, Clueless, Legally Blonde and Breakfast At Tiffany’s are all perfect choices for a girls night in.
I hope that your February is full of romance and roses, and that these little ideas bring a smile to your days!
