My boyfriend Tony and I are always out and about with friends, family and each other, but sometimes it’s just good to set time aside to have a really nice Date Night In. Luckily for us Jacamo was on hand to help, and sent us a Date Night In hamper to make sure we had the best night ever, and help celebrate their new Let Your Shoes Do The Talking Campaign. Apparently 51% of women use a man’s shoes to judge and assess his personality so Jacamo are aiming to help guys put their best foot forward and have some dating success. This meant that the hamper came with a twist… I wasn’t allowed to peek inside and had to hand the organisation and running of the night over to Tony, to help him throw me the best date night possible. Sounds good to me!
I love surprises and was really good at not peeking inside the box, which was packed with goodies and instructions to help Tony organise an amazing night in (and he even took the above photo for me before he got started!) The first step of the evening was to run me a bath using the gorgeous smelling I Love… Raspberry and Blackberry Bubble Bath and Shower Creme. Unfortunately I have stitches in my back at the moment (the glamour!) so couldn’t actually get in the tub, but I soaked my feet and watched some Pretty Little Liars whilst giving myself a mini pedicure – bliss! Tony also gave me a little shoulder rub with some massage oil which Jacamo had sent (which was definitely necessary to relax me after watching a PLL halloween special!) I could get used to nights like this!
It was then time for dinner and Toto had made one of my favourite meals – thai style crispy pork stir fry, and as it was the beginning of the bank holiday weekend, and a Date Night In, he’d also cooked some dim sum and bought some prawn crackers. YUM! He’s a fab chef and the meal was so delicious (he even kept my noodles and stir fry separate bless him! – anyone else weird about their foods touching?!)
Toto then lit a candle (which smelled amazing – Wax Lyrical’s Wild Berries), poured some cava, grabbed the box of Thorntons(our favourites) and we settled down to watch Friends With Benefits. Now whilst I love a good rom com (and have a massive girl crush on Mila Kunis) Tony definitely spent a lot of time playing on his phone whilst “watching” haha! We then caught up on Better Call Saul and The Walking Dead. Soooo goooodd!!
We were just about to go to bed when Tony remembered the little book which came in the Jacamo hamper too – Lines for All Occasions: Sweet Nothings and Pillow Talk – and started reading a few pick up lines from it. These ranged from the hilarious to the down right ridiculous and even pretty offensive! I’m not sure these would actually work on anyone but it was definitely good for a giggle (and Tony now constantly tells me I’ve got more fabulous than a drag queen!)
Thanks for helping us have a great night in Jacamo!
