“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” -Maya Angelou
Springtime is here and we feel the warmth slowly creeping up on us. It’s important to stay hydrated now more than ever and to remember to drink our recommended 8 glasses of water (or 0.5 ounces x Your Body Weight in Pounds = Daily Fluid Requirement in ounces). There are many ways jazz up your water. The easiest way to do this without artificial flavoring is to infuse your water with fruit. Choose natural ingredients such as mint leaves, citrus, berries and melons to add a hint of flavor to your water. Cucumbers are also a great and refreshing option you can add. If you want to get creative, you can make fruit ice cubes. Simply place berries or the item of your choice in an ice tray, fill with water and freeze. Add them to your water and they can keep your water cool and infuse all at the same time! Cheers!
We went to an Urban Outfitters and had to pick up one last thing while waiting in the check out line. We fell in love with this periwinkle nail polish, “crowded”. In honor of this name, we decided to choose a nice gold shimmer to paint our ring finger to represent how “crowded” by periwinkle our other digits already were that the gold only made it onto one.
Happy March to everyone! We just discovered that the March flower is the daffodil. The meaning of this flower is friendship and domestic happiness. It’s easy to pick up a couple of bunches for just a couple bucks from your local flower shop or market. The common colors daffodils come in are: white, orange, and (our personal favorite) yellow. Daffodils are versatile flowers that you can throw in a mason jar or empty glass bottle for rustic decor. We love the idea of putting them in fun objects such as an old, vintage looking, flour can or teapot.
Last weekend we took a visit to the Pasadena Rose Bowl Flea Market. We saw many amazing things and one of them was this amazing bench. At first glance, it seems that there are three chairs but after further examination we see that it is just a single bench. We thought this was a fun, unique and clever way to introduce a unique piece of furniture into any house decor. There were many colors and sizes. This three seater retailed for $320.
There is nothing we enjoy more than a beautiful fresh cut of flowers. Actually, the only thing we love more than that is carrying our flowers out of the flower shop in brown paper wrap. There is something about it that makes it seem so romantic and complementing to all flowers. Some people have gotten really creative with their flower wrappers to personalize their flower package all together. We think we will try all of these great wrapper ideas when gifting flowers this Spring.
