So the truth is I’m not overly keen on Valentine’s Day, mainly because I always seem to be single when it comes around however, for you lovebirds out there I have decided to do a special Valentine’s post. Whether you are looking for something different to do or somewhere to go and you’ve left it to the last minute. It’s Lanky Girl to the rescue!
For the couple who are choosing to stay in this Valentine’s Day.
Nothing says I love you like a cooking your loved one a romantic meal. Dine in for 20 pounds from M&S is a pretty good deal and M&S have come up with a valentine’s menu which looks tasty! Try Thai Fishcakes for Starters, 2 Whole Seabass with Coriander & Red Chilli Butter for your main and 2 Hot Belgian Chocolate Soufflés for desert.
For friends celebrating Valentine’s Day together.
Why don’t you attempt to make your own Death by Chocolate Cocktail:
- 50mls BACARDI OakHeart
- 50mls Chocolate milk
- 12.5mls Chambord
Build in the glass
BACARDI OakHeart spiced rum is available from supermarkets and all good off licences for £18 RRP. For more recipes and info visit www.bacardi.com

Meddlers of Honour is the singles event that aims to be different from every other. The idea? Get a load of singles together and have ‘meddlers’ who will introduce you to the guy/girl you fancy. Their party for those aged between 20-38 is on Feb 14 at Paradise by Way of Kensal Green.
