Valentines Giveaway…

Hello Lovelies

So February is the month of love and as much as I’m not the biggest fan of Valentines Day, I’m going to celebrate it with you.

I clean out my cupboards (occasionally) and I tend to find things I have used once or sometimes not all. It’s a habit I plan on getting rid of this year though.

To celebrate with my readers I’m giving away this Guess Handbag that I used for about two hours . It’s basically brand new (I actually found a tag inside with extra crystals).
The colour fits in with the whole romanticism of V Day don’t you think?

This baby could be yours all you need to do is :
1) Follow my blog.

I’m going to choose a winner purely on the one I find the most endearing. So be creative my loves.

Winner will be announced on Valentines Day..(14 February if you’re unsure 😉 )

    Love neans sacrifice, compronise, care, dependency on your spouse. Married for 4 years, love made me want to be with him, and love made me leave a life, a career, friends family I had known from one city to a new small town just for him. Marriage gives love a whole new meaning, and definition. You dont have to say ‘I love you’ you can show it in many ways, even the smallest gestures. And it is love that multiples in kids.

    Hey Shaheeda. I follow your blog and Facebook account. I would say LOVE is something that is pure. It’s something that cannot be taught or told to do. It comes naturally and doesn’t only happen between a boyfriend and girlfriend or husband and wife but also between parents and children and grandparents and grandchildren. LOVE is a feeling that comes from the heart. Being in LOVE is amazing but what is more special is when the person you LOVE, loves you back even more. And when you with that someone special you feel like you on top of the moon. But most of all LOVE is a blessing, because if one is able to LOVE then everything else such as PEACE, PROSPERITY, HAPPINESS and basically GOOD LIFE will follow.

    Hey, I’m following your blog and I love it;) Love for me is in the little things that he does, like buying me that chocolate when I’m pms’ing; or bringing a tablet when I complain of a headache, without even asking. Or telling my daughter that she’s just like me when she does something cute. Love is being able to endure the bitterness with patience, so that you can enjoy the sweetness with pleasure. And most importantly love isn’t all sunshine, its knowing that the sun is always there even tho it might be dark…..

  6. yaseera says:

    Love is priceless, unique, unconditional, abstract, fun, love is what gets you throught the good bad and ugly times, love is an amazing feeling, love is sparkly Happy times, and means the world, it brings the satisfaction that nobody can understand and explain

    Following 🙂 as you are dear Shades so am I…V-Day is jus another day of the year. The only thing different is that most people I know are getting roses and flowers and chocolate and what not…so here’s my understanding of love, having not experienced it myself…
    In th spirit of V-Day I’m sure u don’t mean love not romantic. I’ve learnt from Mr Winnie the Pooh that love cannot be spelt, only felt. I believe that love is something everyone dreams of. As children, we see it between our parents, and dream of the day when we too can dress up as princesses and have someone to love. I think that people outside your immediate family – such as friends and those romantic ones – are the ones that love you out of choice. Family just loves you as you love them, but people outside of that have control over whether or not they love you. Or maybe not, as many people don’t actually mean to fall in love. But these are the people that see you here today, not knowing much about what moulded you to be this person, and not having blood relations to you.
    So what does that love mean to me? I’ve heard that its not a bed of roses, but from this point I find that it doesn’t seem so. In my imagination, I believe it to be beautiful. I associate it with things that I consider beautiful, such as pink and flowers and butterflies. I imagine love to be something all-consuming. He will be the one I won’t be able to get out of my mind. He will be mine and I will be his. He will be my other half, my better half. We will bring out the best in each other, and wonder how we survived without each other. We will fit together so perfectly that others will wish to be us. He will be the peanut butter to my jelly, and we will be the perfect two. He will be my prince, I will be his princess, and we will live happily ever after…(in Jannah, in which we will walk hand in hand).
    So yes, my imagination is rather active, and my brain is rather mushy. But I think every girl dreams of her tall, dark and handsome Mr Perfect. Hopefully one day he’ll come riding on that white horse he’s supposed to have.
    In the meantime, I guess il just concentrate on being me, so that he has me to love, for who I am and who I made myself, not just for him, but for me.

    I am following! Blog looks awesum! For me love is being silly together! Like when he bites my toes or tickles my feet just to make me laugh. And let me cut his hair when I was training even though I had to shave it all off afterwards. Oh and the fact that b4 he proposed I was alredy used to the stinky farts and snotty nose and horrible smokers breath.- I still said yes when he popped the question.

  9. yaseera says:

    Valentines day is a day of celebration, happiness, loves coming together, old flames reconnecting, new and old lovers experiencing love again, its a day of huge cuddly adorable teddy bears and chocolates and roses everywhere, red red red everywhere, love means coming together its a sacred bond that bring two people who love each other close love is making sure they stay together through tough times and remain together forever, love is also fun in a way its about taking part in activities and having picnics in your own lounge and doing little things that make a big difference

    Love is not materialistic. It’s not measured by money or expensive cars or physical appearance; it’s deeper, it is what lies inside the being, the emotion bursting out. Love is the way two souls connect. When one knows what the other is feeling, or what the other wants without using words to communicate. They understand you and everything about you. They know each other’s likes, dislikes and desires without any need to verbalise it. They realise when your heart cries. They are there for you in moments when you are down, as well as happy moments. Love is when you can’t stop thinking of one another. Love is being with each other no matter what, there is no barrier, no restrictions and no terms and conditions. No excuses are made, no demands. Love is forgiving easily. Love is man memories. Love is believing in each other. If it’s not love, I will feel it, and I won’t want it…

    Following your blog and loving it.Love for me is simple. It’s in the little things we see and do everyday. It’s in the familiarity of routine being surprised with flowers by a spouse. It’s in watching you child sleeping and feeling your heart swell and being so overwhelmed you feel like you might explode. It’s in your mum calling everyday and checking if you ok even though you nearly 30. It’s in your dad sending you random stuff because he knows you will always be his little girl. It’s in the blessings you are surrounded with every single day as you realise that the blessed life you lead is as a result of the fact that you are loved by the Almighty Allah. And the most beautiful thing about love is you can shower it on the people you love every single minute of everyday.

    Love your blog,best blog ever:) To me love is “Healing power” and healing begins with truth. Love means taking time to smile and taking responsibility for your own actions. Love is accepting each other’s faults and allowing them the time and space to rectify their mistakes. Love is accepting that apologising is not a swear word. Love is:
    1) Embarrassing each other’s achievements
    2) trusting each other
    3) supporting and honouring each other’s choice
    Love is a never ending song in my heart of comfort, happiness and being. You my sometimes forget the words but not the tune. Love knows no law, no pity; it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.
    Love is priceless, infinite and forgiving, a price no man may dare to lessen or misunderstand. Love perishes against all turmoil and strife. It is perished. It has no place to hide or no carpet that it can be swept under. Love is blind, and therein lays its beauty.
    Love is not ignoring, love is not trying to control and love is definitely not remaining silent in fear.
    You have to know the risk if you want to play the game.
    This is what I think about love

    My concept of Love is not just the emotion we feel when we are with some one we love or The endorphins that release in our body that give us the feeling of Euphoria but Love is what we experience in our daily lives with our parents, our spouse(if you have one), our siblings, our children and those close to us. However Love to me is being able to do what you don’t want to for the one you love knowing that it will bring them joy and happiness, it is going the extra mile, putting their feelings above one’s self. Being able to forgive them even when/ if they have hurt you (intentional or unintentional). It is sacrificing (I prefer the word CHOOSING) for the ones you love because in seeing them happy you know that you will attain a sense peace and happiness as well. It is feeling that unbreakable bond you have with that special some one, where you complete each others sentences or thoughts. Knowing what the person is thinking before they do/say it. LOVE LIES IN THE SELFNESS OF THE INDIVIDUAL in every facet of their lives. I personally do not celebrate Vday. To me love should be celebrated everyday because we do not know if we will live to love the next day. When it comes to love I say: ‘ Carpe diem, Love with all your heart so that you will not live to regret not loving even for a moment.” “ Love can be felt for a moment or for a lifetime” CHOICE IS YOURS!!!

    When you meet someone and time goes on and you realize that person has chosen to see only the best in you, to encourage you, to believe in you, to bring out the best qualities in you, to comfort you, to nurture you, to support you mentally, emotionally, verbally, spiritually, and even financially (when it’s necessary), I call that love.

    When you live together, day in and day out for years and still have the desire to say “I love you” every single day and to say “Thank you” for the little things that you do for each other, I call that love.
    When you make each other laugh, even if it is about the silliest, trivial thing, I call that love. When you cheer each other up, either by making each other laugh because one of you had a rough day or you just need to be held (and you get held because you asked), I call that love.

    When you give to one another whatever it is that needs to be given and the giver truly doesn’t expect anything in return, I call that love.
    When you share, unequivocally, when there is no “keeping track” of who does what for whom and who spent how much on whatever it was. I call that love.
    When you say what you need to say, without fear of being criticized and know that the other one will do their best to understand and will still accept you and cherish you, no matter what is said, I call that love.

    When you compliment each other, even just once, every single day, and mean it with all sincerity, I call that love.
    When you are willing to compromise, knowing that you can’t have your way all the time, I call that love.
    When you become willing to learn something new, like sharing in each others’ interests, to me, that is love. You realize that by being with them, you experience more in life than you ever would have by being alone or not knowing them at all.

    When you are open and honest, straightforward, trustworthy, confident in yourself and know that the other person is all those things as well, to me, that is love. You realize that if you are not true to yourself, you can’t be true to another.
    When you know it’s better to be happy than to be “right”, that is definitely love. Knowing that you can accept the quirks and differences in each of you, to me, that is love.
    Knowing that you would never give up on them, that you will live through every single curve ball life throws, that you will be with them through the sweetest, most precious times as well as the hardest, most troubling, most heartbreaking times of all, to me, that is love.
    Love allows you to be less narcissistic, more caring, more giving, more loving, more accepting, more patient, more nurturing, and more forgiving.

    So blessed to share my life with someone who makes me a better person. I love you for today, for tomorrow and for the days that cannot be counted.  You are my paradise on this earth.

    Following your gorgeous blog….I must confess, I’ve been thinking about this blog post since the day you uploaded it. What does love mean ?
    Honestly I never believed love existed until well I fell in love. Its falling, no parachute, nothing. Out of nowhere someone catches you…that’s love. When you with them, time slows down. Pure magic
    Its trust, its loyal, its unconditional. Its when both your souls dance to a melody that only both of you know. Its makes your heart dance. With all your flaws and mistakes to that person you are perfection. Like you are the finest, loveliest, tenderest and most beautiful person.
    Love is when that person comes into your life and makes you see the sun when you once saw clouds. When they believe so much in you, you start to believe in you too. That person who loves you simply for being you…Lana Del Rey says it best, will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful ? I know you will. A love that will last a lifetime
    You know its love when everyday is valentine’s, everyday you feel like its your birthday. A love so deep that the ocean is jealous.

    Following 🙂 Love is a very complex thing, and something that is very difficult to understand. I dont think that there is a proper way that you can define it. There is love for family, then there is love for friends, and love at first sight, and true love.

    But, one thing that gets me about love is when you talk about that which is between a man and a woman, love that is required to make a relationship work. Love is percieved as being all encompassing, as being able to last against all odds. I think what most people now percieve as love is simply passion.

    Love to me is an entitity that encompasses everything in a successful long lasting relationship. That is: trust, friendship, passion. Once the passion has died there needs to be something to fall back on to make a relationship work. Love does not last forever, and can not withstand all tempests.

    My gran used to tell me that when you love someone, when you are truly in love with someone then all you can think about cleaning their dirty underwear without blanching. A unique philosophy, but when broken down, really all she was saying is you truly love someone when you can deal with all the really bad times as well as the good times. When you don’t want to change those irritating little habits, and you accept them for who they are because that is part of the person you love.

    Love is a verb and it means thinking of someone before yourself, it means sharing your time and attention with someone and if love is happening that means ego and fear have taken a walk because ego and love cannot coexist.

    Love is trust. Without trust at the very foundation of any love, love will struggle to grow, progress and develop. Love is wanting to make another person feel good about themselves. There is no room or need for jealously, bitterness or hate… When you love someone truly and honestly – it is more powerful than money and luxurious goods.

    I’m following your amazing blog!

    This is what love means to me:
    Love is someone’s tertiary step of affection to towards another
    Love gives and never seeks anything return.
    Love is to love those who don’t know what love is.
    Love never teaches anything but love.
    Love never knows conquering anything, even hate.
    Love is exclusive to the heart.
    Love and lust are diametrically opposite each other.
    Love is always right.
    Love can never be wrong.
    Love is patient.
    Love is kind.
    Love is life, absence of love is absence of life.
    Love is quiet, it makes no claims and demands.
    Love is what helps us to forgive.
    Love helps us to trust.
    Love is another realm and spirit in our bodies that are revealed with the right people, that allows us to be free and spontaneous.
    Love is not automatic, is time revealing.
    Love changes us to be better people.
