Every simple gesture says a thousand meanings especially if made and bought with love.

Have you asked yourself what makes you smile every day? What are the things that brighten up your day? Will a simple smile from a family member or friends cheer you up? Or will a bouquet of flowers from your special someone makes you all giddy and girly?

In this day and age, expressing one’s love and appreciation is as simple as giving gifts and flowers. Even the means of sending these thoughtful gestures is just a click away.  One may able to access these through online stores, websites and social media. With the advancement of technology, everything can be bought at your convenience. But of course, despite of this, nothing still compares if these simple gestures are accompanied with love and smiles.

Here are some helpful tips you may consider buying to express your love that surely will bring about joy and smiles to your beloved.

Flower Delivery

Send your loved ones with fresh flowers that they love. There is a wide selection of flowers to choose from depending of the occasion, flower meaning, style and arrangement. You may prefer buying them in bouquet style, arranged in a vase or even with just a big stalk of red blooming rose.

Flower delivery in Singapore is also an option and is cheap for those who are in a tight budget. This might be less hassle and convenient especially for those who are working all day and don’t have spare time to visit a floral shop. Online flower delivery is also available in Singapore.  This option would let you have a picturesque look of the flowers you prefer through browsing their website or social media page. And with just a click, you may be able to send your love to your darling with no worries.

Gifts

More than sending one, selecting the right gift is a little tricky. You won’t like getting something your loved one will not love. So, the best thing to do is to list down the things they are fond of or something they usually use or adore. Some of the gift items that are recommended are champagne/wine, perfume, plushies or soft toys and speciality dedication cakes. Price may be a bit of a problem but always remember it’s the thought that counts. Something simple and symbolic may be worth considering too. Continue reading “What To Buy To Express One’s Love”

It’s hot outside. Like CRAZY HOT. Too hot for the pool or the sprinkler or even a walk to the mailbox. You know what it’s NOT too hot for? Ice cream sandwiches. Am I right?

These ice cream sandwiches are just as much fun to make as they are to eat. Totally customizable, it’s an activity the whole family (including the kids) can get in to.

Simply make a huge batch of waffles using that waffle iron you haven’t broken out in three or four years. Heck, forget the waffle iron and use frozen waffles if you’re tight on time. Sandwich your favorite ice cream between two waffles and add whatever toppings you love. Think lavender ice cream with roasted pistachios, chocolate chip cookie dough dipped in chocolate, or strawberry ice cream with granola.

And that is why designers are always busy scrambling in their workshops as they keep racking their brains to come up with top shelf ideas that will satisfy the insatiable thirst and desire of their fickle and delicate clients. The millennials have fostered a culture that gives so much emphasis on looks and “likes” on social media therefore brand promotion, capitalism and consumerism is at an all-time high because people are very conscious of how they look and how the world sees them.

But just like timeless movies and songs that stay relevant despite the passage of time, there are classic outfits and looks that will never go out of style. And that is why more and more people are looking for used watches in thrift stores and pawn shops not just in Singapore but in other countries as well because a tasteful and appropriate timepiece is a great accessory that will complete your look for sure.
