Share The Love This Valentine’s: Top Fashion, Food, Florists & More

What is the best way to say ‘I love you’? It’s the ‘L’ question we all start wondering about around Valentine’s Day. With 14th February looming, it’s time to make some plans with the special person in your life or pick up some presents to show your love for them.

Meal kits and food delivery services have really started wowing me during lockdown and many of them are offering special Valentine’s themed boxes to make the most romantic day of the year memorable. Maybe it’s time to impress your partner with your culinary skills or agree on something you can make together.

I’m also loving the heart decorations — especially the fairy lights —  for bringing some romantic red and pink hues into the house. If there’s any excuse to add more red and pink into your decor, Valentine’s could be just the thing to upgrade your interiors.

Shopping for your galantine? I’ve popped some fashion and beauty recommendations on the list that I would absolutely love to receive on Valentine’s Day. For any fellas reading, these gifts will certainly go down well with your wife or girlfriend. Of course, I couldn’t leave off the Cupid’s classic gift of flowers, so I’ve suggested some fabulous florists too.

Big Fashion Spotlight

Business Spotlight: Slow Fashion With the seen collective

My fantastic friend Steph set up the seen collective, a bespoke, knitted jumpers brand when she moved to South Africa. You can put in an order for a made-to-measure cardigan or jumper and it’ll be knitted by a very talented group of women in Johannesburg. I spoke to Steph to find out how it started and how her slow-fashion brand is supporting women in SA.

What is your business and what makes it unique?

My business is called the seen collective. We are a tiny group of women based in Johannesburg, South Africa, who hand knit luxury jumpers and cardigans. I am the founder, Steph, and I moved to Joburg from London with my family a few years ago. In downtown Johannesburg, I work with a knitting group based in an old people’s home for women of limited means. We are the epitome of slow fashion :)! Generally, we make to order with a 3-4 week turnaround. We knit using the raddest locally-made yarn: a kid mohair merino blend, hand-spun and hand-dyed in the Eastern Cape. It’s so light and insanely warm; you can wear it on the beach and in the snow.

How did it all begin?

It was an idea that got some wind behind it. I met some beautiful women who were eager to work. We just began making, then selling: it snowballed really.

Each made-to-measure jumper or cardigan is £240, including shipping to the UK.

What inspired you?

From a design perspective: painting, fine art, and artists who use colour in unexpected ways. On a human level: the women I work with teach me so much. They are far wiser than me & we have wonderful conversations whilst working.

You might also like: New Business Spotlight: Dinkydeaks Handmade Jewellery

What is the meaning behind the business name?

I want the skills of this group of women I work alongside to be seen by a wider audience.

Who is your ideal client/customer?

Anyone who gives a hoot about where their clothes have come from and people who want to buy something to last a lifetime.

Follow the seen collective on Instagram, @theseencollective

What is your top parenting tip?

Listen to your gut. Parenting successfully is an ever-moving target. Enjoy the best bits and educate yourself when things feel difficult.

Oh, and strict bedtimes!

Steph’s favourites

Shop: In Joburg, Convoy — a beautiful spot for locally-made fashion. In London, so many! I love the feeling of some of the traditional department stores, so uniquely British — Liberty’s has to be my favourite. I like a side of nostalgia with my shopping, which is perhaps accentuated by being an expat at the moment :). VV Rouleaux is a treasure trove and also love James Smith & Sons, the umbrella store near Tottenham Court Road.

Website: Instagram is invaluable to small business. I have had to set a timer on my usage though.

Holiday destination: Scarborough in the Western Cape is jaw-droppingly beautiful. Kruger is up there too. In fact, so many places in South Africa – we are very lucky. Ile d’Arz in France is a magical island. And anywhere in Italy.

Restaurant: We lived in Moscow for a long time and Pushkin is one of my favourite restaurants in the world. In London, I can’t get enough of dim sum at Royal China or Yauatcha Soho. In Paris, it has to be Robert & Louise for steak.

Hotel: Babington House

Each made-to-measure jumper or cardigan is £240 including shipping to the UK.

10 Comfy, Cute Lounge & Underwear Gifts (With A TLM Discount)

Luxury loungewear is definitely high on my winter shopping list. Slipping on something soft and cosy is crucial for entering ultimate comfort mode. The old t-shirts and worn-out sweatpants are starting to feel a bit.. well, old. It’s certainly time to switch it up and ask Santa for some new PJs and underwear.

The Women’s Christmas Wishlist Every Man Needs To See

Putting this gift guide together felt a bit like writing my own wish list to Santa. Some of the picks are pretty simple: pyjamas and socks, you can’t go wrong with. While others are a bit more luxurious and indulgent, but Santa might just deliver, if we’ve been good, right? Whether you’re Christmas shopping for a friend or needing to forward on some inspiration to the man in your life, I’m hoping you’ll find something you like on my list.
