So Valentine's day is fast approaching and unlike others, it really isn't a big deal in my household. Some of my friends take it to next level and go on some extravagant romantic trips to Paris for Valentine's weekend, which is lovely, but it's just impossible with a 2 year old. 
Our Valentine's Day mostly end up both being at work, tackle the toddler until she falls asleep and then we curl up on the sofa with a takeaway and a movie.
Today I have teamed up with Panasonic, and their beautiful television range Panasonic Viera 4K, you can find your match made in TV heaven right here - http://viera.panasonic.co.uk/4ktv/  to bring you a Valentine Night In Guide, because let's face it, who wants to be knocking elbows with the next table in Nando's as you're packed in like sardines or sitting next to the couple who prefer to eat each others faces than the food.

Valentine's day or not, there is nothing I love more than to snuggle up on the sofa with Justin and watch a really good movie. These are my top movie picks to get you in the mood for love..

*Titanic is the ULTIMATE romantic movie, I absolutely love it and it definitely makes me feel all fuzzy inside, if you haven't got Titanic on DVD, firstly WHY NOT!? Secondly, buy it here.
*Valentine's Day, speaks for itself, it's a great rom-com featuring lots and lots of extremely popular actors, it's kind of like an American version of Love Actually, buy it here.
*The Ugly Truth, starring Katherine Heigl & Gerard Butler, this HILARIOUS movie will always be one of my all time favourites, it's definitely not your typical rom-com and actually is a great a watch for both women and men, buy it here.
*Legend, starring Tom Hardy, is something a little different, not everyone is into the slushy storylines of romantic comedies, and I have been saving myself this film for Valentine's day.  Not only is it a far cry from the likes of Titanic that some of your partners will deplore watching, Tom Hardy is an absolute sort, so whilst your partner enjoys this fast paced crime thriller, you can oggle Hardy for a good 2 hours. I can't wait to watch it, you can buy it here.

If you really want to cook for your better half this Valentines there are some great deals for the person who could burn scrambled eggs & there's some recipes for the talented chef who wants to impress. Here are some of my favourites.

-Marks & Spencer's have a great offer for Valentine's day every single year with their 'Dine In For £10' offer which usually includes a free bottle of wine, so for all the people out there who, just like my fiance, have promised to cook on Valentine's day but need to cheat on your way a teensy bit, this is for you. (offer exclusive to in store).
-My favourite starter for Valentine's Day has to be Oysters, not only are they are a fantastic aphrodisiac, they're are so yummy! Here's a great recipe - http://allrecipes.co.uk/recipe/36107/fresh-oysters.aspx?o_is=LV

Everybody likes an excuse to receive a gift and Valentine's is NO exception. We don't go crazy like some people, but I do like a nice piece of jewellery and a bunch of roses, what girl doesn't? I also have some wonderful gift ideas for the man in your life.
