I have a secret to share. I don’t really celebrate Valentines Day. I don’t react very well to gigantic red hearts plastered all over online advertisements and big life-sized balloons blocking my way when I’m shopping for groceries — it’s just how I am.
But to know that Eireann of Oh Bara is setting up a temporary shop from 26th to 31st January in conjunction with Valentines? Now that’s a different story. Everything she makes is a limited edition beauty that wouldn’t look out of place even if it wasn’t Valentines. And that promise alone makes me regain my confidence in the lovey dovey season.
Until I run into another big, red, heart-shaped balloon, that is.
