Escentual Perspective: Our Valentine's Day Plans


Though the origins of Valentine’s Day are shrouded in mystery (does it mark the death of Saint Valentine, a fertility ritual, or start of the Spring bird mating season?), now February 14th is synonymous with a celebration of love, in whatever form that may take: romantic dates, Galentine’s or a self-care pamper session. Read on to find out how the Escentual beauty team will be spending this Valentine’s Day…

Escentual Perspective: Valentine's Day Plans Friends

What are your plans this Valentine’s Day?

“I love any excuse to celebrate! So of course, my Valentine’s plans span over 2 weeks. First up Galentine’s; my friend of 4 years is coming to stay with me and we have a long agenda including everything from Ninja Warrior Cardiff (thank you Ceryn for the recommendation) to coffees and cake in Cardiff Bay. Next up, is Valentine’s Day and my 3 year anniversary with my partner! We’re super excited to have a weekend together, as we haven’t seen each other in 6 weeks. As we only get 2 days together we’re having a chilled one, meal deal from M&S and a trip to the cinema.”

Can you tell us more about your Valentine?
“I met my friend Alice at my interview for L’Oreal, we were in a group exercise and instantly bonded. Spoiler! We actually both got the job and were placed in the same department. Now, we’ve both moved away but our friendship still continues to grow.”

What are your plans this Valentine’s Day?

“My Valentine’s Day plans this year are pretty lowkey; I’ll probably have a Galentine’s catch up with my friends around that time, but on the day itself I’ll be having a bit of a pamper session. I’m thinking rom-com, face mask and definitely lots of chocolate!”

Can you tell us more about your Valentine?
“My mum and I love a good rom-com so I’m sure I can rope her into my Valentine’s plans this year!”

Can you tell us more about your Valentine?
“We’ve been friends for 7 years. We originally met at university and have been friends ever since; we’ve even lived together.”
