Valentine's with Rakuten #RakutensBlogger

A few weeks ago a lovely email arrived in my inbox. Rakuten were enlisting bloggers to take part in their #RakutensBlogger Valentine project and I was so excited to be involved. Nick and I don't usually make a big deal of Valentines so it was nice to be on board with this as it gave us something extra to look forward to. 

Being a #RakutensBlogger I was sent a little surprise Valentine's parcel full of goodies to indulge in on the big day. Inside was body butter, nail polish, lip stick, lip balm, a mirror, tea lights, sweets and chocolates. My idea of heaven in one little red box! 

As if this wasn't enough Rakuten also added £50 credit to my account and told me to spend it on whatever would make our Valentines special, be it a gift or something to enjoy together on the day. 

I browsed the website for hours! I was absolutely spoilt for choice and I could have spent a fortune. It took me a while to decide what to go for as there was so much to choose from. I deliberated between buying a hamper and a movie or a valentines gift for the both of us and I did decide eventually! 

In the end I decided to spend our credit on gifts for one another. I bought Nick some Jean Paul Gaultier cologne as it's a favourite of his and I knew he needed a refill. For myself I chose the Champaca Blossom Large Yankee Candle and the Jean Paul Gaultier Classique perfume. I thought both my gifts complimented one another and perfume and candles are amongst my favourite things, I know they will make my Valentines extra special. 

I'm so looking forward to Valentines Day! Have you made any plans or bought any nice gifts? 

- I was sent the box of goodies and given £50 store credit to use on the website however all opinions are my own.
