Congrats girlfriend! Send me your delivery address and a luscious box of Hotel Chocolat chocolates will be on their way to you!
Valentine’s day, a Hallmark day to rival any other. Or rather, to stampede on all others. I was once told that florists make more money on Valentine’s day, just this one day, than on every other day of the year combined. I mean, is that just insane? For a completely made up day?
While I’m not a frothing-at-the-mouth anti-Vday lunatic, I do believe that the day was created to take advantage of those blindly in love, laying duty in men’s hearts and desire in women’s, so that gifts are given, plus flowers, plus chocolates, plus a prerequisite card, plus plus plus. The blindness of love is a Godsend on this day, because without it, you would see that Hallmark had just yanked the biggest leg of all, pocketing billions upon billions, on this one day.
Having said all that, Valentine’s day does bring happiness to a significant number of people in this world, and no one will question that. Couples are loved up, and singles party on, on what is probably the easiest day of the year to spot fellow singles. So I don’t hate, not at all.
I’ll just eat my chocolate.
Hotel Chocolat have so kindly asked me to host another GIFTAWAY! because we do love gifting away here at thecattylife. I had the delectable pleasure of trying their Heart to Heart Goodie Bag, literally a bag full of good stuff like Milk Hearty Nibbles, a milk & white chocolate slab, praline and brownie heart milk chocolates, and caramel heart chocolates.
And now, you can too!
