Valentine Splash

Woah! Its was that time of the year a few days ago when you have love songs crooning on the radio, the gift shops swirling with most folks trying to surprise..or at the very least impress their lovers, restaurants all trying to out-do each other. Well yours truly was not about to be left out but, being of the regular and boring sort, I went down the safe gift route (don't ask dont tell).

I am sure that most folks know the saying that Diamonds are a girl's best friend but I daresay that conventional piece of wisdom was challenged in Gloucestershire this Valentines. How? Well the laudable Herr Jasin Boland gave as a token (though that would be an understatement) of his love a £500,000 shrink-wrapped house to his fiancee (BBC Story). I know there have been sensational gifts in the past but this one was gob-smacking. He put me and my boring gift idea to shame and that has got me year!

I bet his only problem now is how to beat this achievement next year. What in your opinion will knock that gift next valentines? A wedding in Rome? ;) What love luxury did you splash out on? Are you looking to better it?

Have a great weekend!

Its amazing the lengths people will go to actually get their hair looking all shiny and pretty. I was reading somewhere in the metro last week that there is a new hair treatment using bull semen. It actually costs £55 a pop and allegedly brings body and shine to your hair. Wow!
Who knows what next people will be trying out on their hair. In my uni days, some of my pals with hairlines receding faster than that of their contemporaries were partial to honey. They had to answer to ants though seeing that we were based in a tropical town. Some have used hemp, eggs...all sorts.

What are you willing to do for your hair?

Have a great week ahead!
