Valentine’s Day with intu Potteries Stoke on Trent

Roses are Red, Violets are Blue, Still looking for Valentine’s ideas? Dunna worry duck, intu Potteries have gotchyoooo (covered).

Hands up if your other half is working on Valentine’s Day so you can’t spend your time trying to get a last minute booking at your favourite restaurant… *puts hands up* So what better way to spend your romantic evening alone than splurging on a few Lush Bath Bombs and the like? That’s what I did when I was invited to intu Potteries Stoke on Trent and was treated to a gift card which made my Lushie dreams come true. I bagged myself The Comforter Bubble Bar, a few of those new fangled oil melts (one of which smells like snow fairy and makes dreams come true) and a few other fancy smelly bits which will make my night in splendid. 

Unfortunately I splurged my gift card way too quickly, so didn’t snap it in action – but enjoy this image of it hot off the press (by press, I mean the till at Lush) courtesy of my date for that evening, Charl from Ginger Girl Says:

But why am I showing you the gift card from intu Potteries anyway? WELL, because if you’re local and head to the centre to buy one of these magical gift cards, you will get a free Yankle Candle Gift to keep for yourself. Can’t say fairer than that can you? More details about that can be found here.

How about if I wasn’t spending Valentine’s alone this year though? What wonderful treats would I be hinting at my working guy to treat me to? Well I’m a simple girl with simple tastes, but I really do not like flowers or chocolate. I mean one just dies and the other makes you have to actually use your gym membership. So instead, I’d really fancy some more perfume. As a girl can never have enough perfume. Here are 3 which I wouldn’t kick out of a bed in the morning:

All of these perfumes got a jolly good whiff and some heart eyes emojis from my little face when I got my paws on them in Debenhams at intu Potteries that night. In fact – they get this treatment every single time I go in to the store actually. If anyone wants to treat me, please do.

We also went on a blogger date to Coast to Coast at The Hive on the same evening, which I’ll be reviewing in a separate post. For now I will say only a few words: Blue Cheese Chicken Strip things ommmggggggg.

How will you be spending Valentine’s? Forever alone? Alone for one night? Or being wined and dined by someone spesh? Let me know over on Twitter @helloterrilowe
