I’m currently sat in bed feeling lonely because my boyfriend has gone off to work for the day.

So what’s more romantic than that?! The fact he’s gone to work on Valentine’s Day so that he can buy us the perfect sofa, or treat us to a…

The lovely Chloe shared with us what exactly goes on in her head when she worries – and man could I relate. I live in constant…
