Valentine is almost here and boy does the world need some love right now. There is no denying the pressure we’re feeling all around. If we’re gonna get one day to remind ourselves that there’s still some love left then let’s do it right.
“But sis, there’s still 12 days left.” Exactly! That’s more than enough time to plan the (near) perfect one.
I’m well aware love is not measured merely by material things but it’s still a measure worth putting thought into. And valentine isn’t the only time to show love but ’tis the season so why not, right?
Forgive the cheesiness. I was going for a ‘Suicide Squad’ typa feel.
Ok, so if you’ve noticed, my “Buy Naija, Grow the Naira”spirit is hella hype. So I looked at what a typical mushy val’s celebration would be like and made a list of Nigerian brands to get you just that! Also for the not so mushy ones (lol), there something in here for you too. These guys? All budget friendly, I promise.
So ladies and gentlemen, meet the squad…

Ever had cake so good you want to eat the board it came with? No? You may judge me now but wait till you try it.
I looked at her business page and there’s a part that says “We make the edible incredible.” I was like “wow, show off.”
Then I proceeded to save her number and stalk her page. (Don’t judge me.)
Your special someone deserves cake that good. You won’t regret it, I promise!

Now this part here I must say is just for the Abuja folks.
Any restaurants in your city you wanna suggest for valentine’s day?
Drop a comment below.
Chopped Bistro is this cute restaurant I’ve been wanting to try out for a while now. But the reviews gotten from trusted foodies, it is definitely a place I’d suggest for a valentine’s day dinner (or lunch).
They serve salads, pasta, chops, cocktails and fresh juice. They could also hook you up with a mean grill.
