Valentine’s: 3 Perfect Rose Colors for This Special Day

Whether your relationship status on Facebook is Married, Single, In a Relationship, It’s Complicated, or you don’t know what the heck is going on, flowers (more specifically roses) are always a GREAT present to gift that special someone!

To be honest, roses are a wonderful gift no matter the occasion -birthdays, anniversaries, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, or just because. All women, regardless of age, love to receive roses because they make us feel special! (I can see you nodding your head already!). Roses are a guaranteed smile; whether it’s one rose or one dozen roses, you can never go wrong!

Now that we are on the same page, and we agree that roses are a great gift, you might be wondering: “What color of roses should I gift to convey the right message?” Well… there are three main colors of roses that I will recommend you gift depending on your relationship status.

  1. Red Roses → are your classic roses for love and romance; they are universally symbolical for “true love” (how romantic!). So..  if your Facebook status is Married, or In Relationship, and you want to express a meaningful “I love You,” I highly suggest selecting this color for your pretty lady!
  2. Light Pink Roses → are associated with affection, as well as feelings of gratitude, appreciation, and happiness. If you’ve been “dating” someone (whatever that means nowadays), this color is a safe choice to leave a clear message that you like  the girl and would like to continue going out on more dates.
  3. Yellow Roses → are symbolical for friendship, joy and caring -appropriate to express appreciation and good wishes If your relationship status on Facebook is “Happily Single,” and you have many awesome girlfriends why not brighten their day with yellow roses!

I hope you have a very happy Valentine’s Day!

♥ Cupcakes are ALWAYS a Good Idea ♥

Just this past weekend I went to Crave for a cup of coffee with my family -a nifty cupcake shop that serves your main lattes, cappuccinos, americanos, and  expressos. Believe it or not, the shop was promoting their Valentine’s specials and that sparked a brrrilliant idea: Crave cupcakes for my colleagues at the office!!

I love going into the shop to stare at all of their exquisite and elaborate cupcakes -they’re all AMAAAZiNG! From your basic flavors chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry, to your more unique velvet, coconut, and lemon, any Crave cupcake you eat, you will absolutely LOVE!  I kid you not… the flavor, the texture and the level of detail of each cupcake is ‘World Class!’ (as my boss would say).

Place your order today to have your customized cupcakes ready for V-Day! Remember to keep a balanced diet by holding a cupcake in each hand! I hope you and your friends, colleagues or whomever you share these delicious treats with enjoy them while sipping on  your favorite choice of coffee.
