If you want to head out this Valentine's Day, or you want to KOZY up with our loved one(s) inside, here's our KOZY guide to all things stylish on the 14th Feb for Galentines AND Valentines.
Staying inside this year?
Well, we're all skilled in the arts of staying in our homes, but why not make it a little bit special this Valentine's Day, with some cool decor?
First up is this rose wall hanging, perfect as a back drop for your intimate dinner, or for. a Galentines party. A Pair & A Spare have an easy to follow tutorial.
Have a valentines themed dinner for two, or a dinner party, but make sure you create a unique centrepiece for the dining table. Add in splashes of pink and shades of red to ensure you're hitting that valentines mood and smashing the theme!
For a KOZY look in the bedroom, why not get your pillowcases embroidered with 'Yours' and 'Mine' or your names? Here's a cool painting tutorial from LemonThistle
Want to get dressed up and head out?
On the 12th and 14th February, you can set sail on one of the majestic Bateaux London river boats, and feast on a sumptuous four-course meal while you get to witness London's iconic landmarks amidst a sunset backdrop. & guess what, there's live music and free-flowing wine, beer and prosecco.

London's most romantic restaurant, or so we say, is Muse by Tom Aikens. Opened by the youngest British chef ever to be awarded two Michelin stars, Tom Aikens, and his team of expert chefs use seasonal and fresh ingredients to create dishes inspired by the Tom’s Norfolk roots. The restaurant is so elegant and intimate, that it is the perfect place to spend Valentine's Day this year. Be sure to book a table quickly, as there are very limited seats.
Want to be outside, but fancy something casual?
Want something casual, but dosed in luxury and heritage? Why not try out the Electric Cinema in Notting Hill, where the interior exuberates the cinema's long history, with leather seating, footstools, tables for food and drink, and sofas that are absolutely perfect for romantic nights out, especially Feb 14th. The cinema is playing Death on the Nile from the 111th-14th Feb. Book tickets here
This year's annual Orchids Festival at Kew Gardens features a series of stunning horticultural displays that bring to life the incredible biodiversity of Central America, with the amazing culture and colours of Costa Rica, home to 6% of the world's flora and fauna species. How about a group trip, or a romantic stroll through the gardens. Make sure you don't miss the Princess of Wales Conservatory, or the vibrant installations of monkeys, sea turtles and the native quetzal bird, a symbol of Costa Rican forest protection.
Or why not bring the flowers home this year? Instead of calling up the local florist, head down to Columbia Road Flower market on Sunday 13th, and pick out some seasonal flowers from your loved one? & get a lovely vase while you're at it, to make sure the flowers are sitting pretty in your home.
