Many people are probably getting a little frown between the eyebrows and an imaginary comic cloud above the head at the visual remainder playing off before them.
I am certain at least one person is experiencing the butterflies again and instantly developing a smile thinking of memories of last Valentine’s day.
The lucky boyfriend of my friend Miss S! And obviously Miss S herself as well. Because giving is as great a virtue as receiving.
Cards, flowers, dinners, perfume, sexy lingerie,… yes these were all there, but this is not why last Valentine’s Day was so memorable.
Miss S had discovered ‘temporary tattoos for Valentine’s Day‘.
As so many other couples they had agreed on dinner, her boyfriend booked a table in a cozy restaurant in the city and came to pick her up at home, like a true gentleman. So far this is a 'Valentine's scene, as many others.’
Miss S was wearing a beautiful, trendy, long raincoat, not only because the weather outside was nothing like the bright, shiny and loving thoughts filling her this 14th February.
She was hiding something, something quite attractive.
Upon entering the restaurant the maître d’ took her coat, at the same time her boyfriend spotted (and not only his eyes) her unlikely sexy but classy appearance.
Besides having her hair pinned up, flattering make-up, and wearing the timeless 'little black dress' highlighting her natural beauty, Miss S had the luminous idea of applying fashionable temporary Valentine's tattoos.
The first thing he noticed was the heart on her cleavage, the creamy red kissy lips on her arm around the three-word-sentence suggesting the whole vibe of the evening ‘iloveyou’ .
Toasting love with a glass of champagne the fun scanned wrist tattoo and the tiny red hart on her hand were instantly noticeable, in perfect harmony with her beautiful red nails.
When Miss S excused herself to make a powder-room pit-stop cupids arrow shot right through her boyfriend's heart when he saw her long smooth legs decorated with stick-on ‘jartelle’ bow tattoos, a playful and exciting element in her sophisticated outfit.
Her meticulous styling for Valentine’s evening made the outfit timeless, sensual, romantic and daring with temporary Valentine's tattoos being the icing on the cake.
The vegetarian main course with artichoke heart and other aphrodisiac vegetables such as asparagus, truffle and tomato made the palate tremble with pleasure.
Then we have only referred to the figurative candle and cake, the literal cake and candle was a delicious and surprising end to a heartwarming dinner.
When Miss S cut open her red fruit tart she came across a small, heart shaped box containing a beautiful necklace with the initials of her and her boyfriend.
As befits a true gentleman he placed the necklace around her neck and then saw a hidden sport with a temporary tattoo, with the text ‘I love you to the moon and back’
You know, I have not even told you of all the other spots where her boyfriend found sensual hearts, kisses, cupids and love one-liners.
For these Miss S wisely placed her forefinger on her red lips and softly said shhht.
Love & <3, Miss K
