Valentine blog

1.Gifts

Apart from birthdays and anniversaries and festivals, Valentine’s Day gives you another reason to receive and give gifts to people. The joy in gifting and receiving gifts is unrivaled, so bask in it.

2.Quality Time

Days come and go. We wake up, go to our respective offices catch up with our loved one’s on holidays. But on Valentine’s Day people take special efforts to plan their day out well for their loved ones. Nothing quite matches up to spending a day spent well with the person you adore.

3.Exclusive Day Of Love

Through out the year, we do things that time and again prove our love to someone. We also tell them how much they mean to us. But all of this is done in between life. But Valentine’s Day makes loving someone and expressing love, doubly special, simply because it’s a day that exclusively celebrates love.

4.PDA Galore

PDA on Valentine’s Day is extra special. Almost everybody in love show it. Although it might be a little difficult for Singles to digest this, sometimes it’s a good idea to be happy in the happiness of others. Even if you’re bitterly single, the sight of watch an aged couple, walking hand and hand on a street, will surely make your heart melt.

5.Taking Special Efforts To Find That Perfect Gift

From looking up several online shopping websites to taking advice from friends and experienced lovers, it’s adorable to watch lovers search for the perfect gift for their special someone.

6.Kids In Love

Regardless of how immature or mushy it may be for your taste, when you look at young, school-going  teenagers, especially kids in love, you can’t help but go all “aww” over them.

7.The Excitement Before Planning The Day

Nothing matches the excitement one feels whilst planning V-Day. You feel anxious because you want to make sure your partners loves, what you give them.

8.Overlooking the Fights You’ve Had

It’s a day that you consciously overlook all the fights you have had in the past and forgive each other, making your relationship stronger than ever before.

9. A Little bit of Valentine’s Day, everyday

Valentine’s Day makes you realize that if you would give even a fragment of the love you shower on your partner on V-Day on a regular basis, your love-relationship would be nothing short of a dream.

10. Perks of being Single

If you’re single, Valentine’s Day isn’t any less special. You don’t have to gift anybody anything. In fact you could buy yourself a gift.

11. No Guilt Trips

If you’re single, you don’t have to take any efforts to please anybody or make sure that special one, likes what you gift them. All you got to do is, sit back and relax, guilt free.

12. Go Explore

You aren’t in a love-relationship or anything that’s close to it. So what? Go ahead, have your share of fun, meet more people, get to know them. You have the exclusive privilege to go tell multiple people that you love them, and get away with it.

13. Narcissism Encore

Love yourself. You cannot love anybody else, unless you love yourself enough. Pamper yourself, go shopping, do whatever you like and do it for yourself, do it because you like doing it.

14.Ka-Ching

Think about all the money you saved because you didn’t have anyone else to please this Valentine’s, buy something that you have wanted to buy out of that saved money.

So you see, whether you’re single, in-a-relationship or married, Valentine’s Day will remain an awesome day regardless of the flak it receives from cynics. Still confused about what to gift your Valentine, go to www.flora2000.com and choose from an entire range of original and gorgeous gifting options.

HOW TO CELEBRATE VALENTINE’S DAY IF YOU ARE SINGLE

Join us on :  facebook 16pinterest_icon_16x32Flora200o - Twittergplus-16x16

Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate your heart’s capabilities. Romance is fine, but it isn’t the only way to make your heart expand or to create joy and contentment. There are lots of ways to feel and give love on Valentine’s Day, even if you are single.

single heart

Invite Your Loved Ones Over: Have the people you love over for dinner. Invite your club members, brothers and sisters, or best buddies over for a dinner or lunch. Make the evening a reminder of how lucky you feel to have these wonderful people in your life. Remind yourself that all kinds of love exist in the world.

Go Shopping, Solo: If you have been dying to buy something important that takes a lot of research and testing (a new TV, a watch, a bike) make this the day you accomplish your goal. It’s hard to feel bad about going solo when you are able to do things that make you happy — and remind you that you love life.

Perform a random act of kindness: Express your love for life by doing something unexpected and kind for someone else. Imagine a whole day of such small, heartfelt moments when you do something meaningful for someone who you hardly know or don’t know at all. You’ll feel ridiculously good afterwards.

Adopt a pet: If you have the emotional capacity to care and love an animal and a lifestyle that can support it, adoption will give you a great way to celebrate attachment. Granted, you can’t repeat this every year, however, a new pet could work wonders for you this February 14th. You could also help rehabilitate an abused or neglected shelter animal.

Love Yourself: Love the one closest to you, yourself! Girlfriends/Boyfriends, friends, and even family may come and go, but you will always have you. So don’t forget to spoil and treat yourself to something special. Indulge in a guilty pleasure with absolutely no apologies. Sing off-key to your favorite song. Make it a chocolate affair if you’d like to max yourself out on pure decadence for awhile. Curl up with a cup of coffee and that book you’ve been dying to read for the past few months. Lose yourself in a relaxing massage at the spa. Whatever your heart desires, be your own best Valentine.

CHRISTMAS HOME DECOR: WHERE & HOW?

Join us on :  facebook 16pinterest_icon_16x32Flora200o - Twittergplus-16x16

Christmas decorations are a big part of the holiday season. Here are some simple ideas and tips to help you decorate the interiors of your home easily and without much hassle.

Decorating the interiors of your home is very different than setting up the Christmas tree or creating an outdoor display. In an average home there are limited locations that the decorations can be placed on without causing disruptions in daily life, and lessen floor space. Therefore, it is important to view what is available in your home, and then work with it to make the best decoration display possible.

mantle decor

The most common place to set up a decoration is on the mantelpiece. A fireplace and a mantel make for an easily decorated area. It may be interesting to string lights or extra greenery up and down the sides of the mantel, where it stands almost flush with the wall in most houses. Candle holders are a great decorative item to add to such a space in your home. You can also place them on a bookshelf or a kitchen counter and bring in the holiday cheer.

Side tables are excellent for setting up table accents and flower arrangements. Be sure to select ones that complement each other. For dining tables, a good centerpiece can really make the difference in creating the Christmas spirit. Consider whether you want a smaller one that can be left in place when the table is in use, or a large removable setting for maximum visual impact. As you carefully decorate the Christmas tree, don’t forget to keep some extra decorative balls and use them in a centerpiece. You can make a sparkly centerpiece featuring those decorative ornaments and keep the centerpiece where you’ll be hosting your lovely Christmas dinner.

christmas-doors

Inside, lights appear much brighter due to the close quarters of the home. So, it may be wise to be careful about the use of large bulbs or LED lights. Common places for lights are to string them on the mantel piece with the other decorations, on a bannister or even outlining a door or doorway. Display wreaths and other door decorations on removable door hooks. Look for ones that can be adjusted to your door width to avoid scratch marks on top of the door frame. These hangers allow you to display Christmas decorations without putting holes into doors or window frames.
