There's Nothing Better Than Chocolate!

I bought some amazing chocolates for me and Roxi for valentines day. They were that good I had to tell you all about them!

They are strawberry and champagne truffles from an online store called Moko. The beauty of the packaging made them even more appealing and special, it was a perfect gift! I'm sooo glad I bought them for us to share! (Although a box each would have been perfect!)

This is the box, it has a lovely pattern on it that you cant quite see on here. And the inside looks like this:

The truffles simply tasted divine. They have a soft, creamy, pink center surrounded by delicate white chocolate coated in pink powder.

They arrived in a super secure box that even fitted though our letterbox! (Always an added bonus!)

On the inside flap of the box they even included a fun activity! (if you find eye tests fun that is!) And if you look really carefully you will see it says "Please recycle me, I want to be a novel"! Who thought a box could be so cute? :-)

 At £15.99 they were definitely not the cheapest chocolates in the world, but soooo worth it! They do a whole selection that I just cant wait to try!
(No, I am not being paid or sponsored to promote them (as much as I wish I was so I could buy more chocolates!) I just loved them that much!!)

Thanks for visiting! Sam xx

Happy Valentines Day!

I know its a bit late but I hope you all had a day filled with love and happiness :)

As my present to Roxi I cooked her a three course meal, and being so ill this was a great achievement! She helped me with everything like chopping, lifting, grating etc but it was still so special. We then cuddled up and watched 'Eat, Pray, Love' which was a great film!

Here are some pictures:

This is the meal

I made garlic breaded mushrooms for starters, feta and spinach filo pie for the main (with carrot and swede mash and garlic new potatoes), and Ben and Jerry's cookie dough chip ice-cream for pudding with grated Galaxy chocolate and a strawberry :) YUM! 

Here are the gifts exchanged between me and Roxi (Cards will come with another post because I forgot to take pictures of them!!)

From Roxi I got some beautiful earings and a gorgeous butterfly charm to go on my charm bracelet

I got Roxi a fragrance she's wanted for a while as well as making the meal :)

Hope you all had a wonderful day! I do have some more posts lined up (like my beautiful rose from Roxi) but I think they deserved their own post!

Lots of love xx
