“An indulgent breakfast in bed with apple pie, walnut cake and cookies! But we’re balancing it out with green apples and all natural coconut yogurts. Plus, green tea for Aaron and Earl Grey for me.”

“This was my breakfast surprise—a heart-shaped passion fruit soufflé. I’m obsessed with this sweet, delicious dessert from the Mercer (off the menu), and my lovely boyfriend, Alex de Betak, asked for a heart-shaped one for this special morning. Not just that, but it came with a beautiful rose, and an incredible De Vera Necklace…which has become a Valentine’s tradition gift already—lucky me!”

“Finally a night in! What’s could be better than cooking at home while listening to fat Joe’s ‘What’s Luv?'”

“My husband [Alexander Gilkes] was in London at the Contemporary Evening auction for Philips de Pury on Valentine’s Day, so it was roses, love letters and solid silver wishbones for our collective future wishes.”

“Romance shromance, my greatest Valetine’s Day gift was Mr. Valentino himself! We schmoozed, talked fashion and Fivestory. Basically I quasi fell in love with the icon. This will be a very hard one to surpass!”
