Hi Lovelies. We all know I’m a sucker for a themed “event” so of course I’ve got some Valentine’s post coming up. This week it’s all about the Valentine’s Lipstick. We have a few pink options, a nude and of course a red. Pink isn’t my usual colour, but we can’t deny it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day so I couldn’t resist. I went for a few different finishes, matte, high shine, glitter topper and plumping, so hopefully theres one for everyone.
1. Chocolate lollipops
Ok so if you’ve been following me for a while you’ll have seen that I love Valentine’s. I made these last year but I decided to try and jazz them up a bit. I saw this idea on pinterest and HAD to try em!
Last year I just made chocolates, but this year I’m actually using the mould how you are meant to and made lollipops!! I have no idea but I was super excited about it!
Lets get into this!
You will need: 500g of chocolate (I chose white chocolate)
Sprinkles of your choice
A lollipop mould. (I have a lips one that I bought especially for Valentine’s last year) You can get them in most baking shops.
Lollipop stick things
Just melt the chocolate until its melted and smooth. This can take a while, but do it slow and steady as if you do it too quick it goes all funny. While thats melting get your mould ready! This is when I added some sprinkles at the bottom of the mould and then added in the sticks.
Once I was happy with the texture of the chocolate I used a tea spoon to add the chocolate in. I tried to knock out the air by tapping it on the counter lightly and then lashed them in the freezer.
Ok so first let me start by saying I will not nor do I expect to get any of this for Valentine’s Day. We are currently saving and have agreed to do homemade gifts.
I love doing wish lists and lists in general really, its a big part of my life so you can expect to see it a lot more on here!
I love valentines day! I know its so commercial, but it’s such a nice day to show your loved ones how much you care. I used to send my sisters and Mum a little valentines gift, but now its just too much effort and I never got the impression that anyone actually appreciated it so I don’t do it anymore. Anyway that wasn’t relevant at all…
Here is my Valentines Wish List. All images are sourced!
