Valentines Day Guide 2015

50 Shades of Love

An unusual take on romance this Valentine's Day for couples, singles and the unconventional type...

Just because you’ve tied the knot/been together forever doesn't mean that you and your hunny bunny/boo/babe (sickening pet names!) are huge proponents of Valentine's Day and all of the mushy-gushy, red rose B.S. it typically entails.

However, there's no reason happy couples and singles shouldn't find a less nauseating way to celebrate their love. Love for a partner, love for being single and love for friends/that special friend or just love that’s yet to come. <Love is in the air… everywhere I look around... do-do do-do... love actually>

This is what makes Brisbane leather accessories label R& Collective a breath of fresh air in a somewhat disposable fashion industry.
