Photo Diary | Be My Valentine

Everyone seemed to have gone little valentines crazed this week. Is it just me or does it get worse every year?  On Tuesday My University building was over run with hearts and cakes and oddly enough onions.
The onions were courtesy of the brighton vegetable co-op. Something about that sign really make me smile. Isn't there some deeply symbolic thing about giving someone an onion? Just me? Ok then!
In general I am a bit of a cynic when it comes to valentines day but I got a little caught up photographing anything with a heart emblazoned one it. 
The third year fine art painting students held a bake sale and my goodness I wanted to buy it all. Chocolate and cakes are my weakness at the best of times and I had to walk past their stand at least 10 times that day. I settled for the little delight in the last picture. A little piece of Double chocolate fudge cake. I may have also had a brownie and a cupcake but we don't need to get into the specifics now do we!
My boyfriend and I had very low key evening with some lovely Waitrose food and some rubbish T.V. "You've Got Mail" and "Big Fat Gypsy Weddings" were on the box and i was happy to do nothing more than sit back and veg out.
Hope you all had a nice day on tuesday whether you got involved in the v-day hoopla or not!


  1. I'm never too fussed about valentines but I do use it as an excuse to take a mini break somewhere nice :P only in Brighton would there be the option of free onions with a cute hand made sign. I think I know my next mini break destination :) xxx

    1. Haha! I know! Brighton can be a bit hippyish but its endearing! I think it would be a great place for a little break, I'm not remotely biased or anything!
      I'm the same about valentines its o hyped up that people expect so much, i'd rather just spend a bit of time with my boyfriend than spend loads of money for no reason! x

  2. All those sweet treats are adorable. I love the onion thing too! xx
