Oh, Valentine’s day. 

I conveniently forgot that Valentine’s day was coming up, until I hit up the sales on Boxing day (the day after Christmas where all stores have huge sales- Think the equivalent of Black Friday). I was at the mall, looking for a new aftershave. I had worn my favorite Davidoff one to a friend’s gathering the week before, and they said I smelled lovely…like their grandfather.

No thanks. I do NOT want to smell like a retired man when I’m still in my youth….barely.


After smelling enough aftershave to give my a non-caffeine-like-headache, I settled on one which the sales person promised didn’t smell like a grandfather (lol, so mature, so lame). I then went to the general department store and noticed a section which was NOT on sale. It was very pink, very red, very lovey and VERY DARN EARLY.

Seriously, I know holidays want a head start, but this was ridiculous. The day AFTER Christmas and already we are being inundated with all things Valentine’s day? I almost cried a river like Justin Timberlake….then I saw Easter Candy.

I mentally apologized for thinking it was too early for Valentine’s day.

    1. Um, excuse me. Not a real holiday?!! Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays, so Imma disagree with you there. Bring on all the pink stuff! That raspberry bread looks awesome and may just inspire me to bake something for the office that day.

    2. I knew I shouldn’t have opened this post when I’m craving sweets, especially chocolate. Le sigh.

    3. Haha! Love the Ode to Valentine’s Day here, mate. It really is a holiday centered around sweets…and maybe a couple of roses thrown in for good luck. Love this roundup of deliciousness…and now I’m going to be craving Valentine’s Day sweets all day. That and singing Justin Timberlake songs. Thanks for that. 🙂
