Love Chic: a Valentines gift for those who have everything…

OnlyRoses, the UK’s finest specialist rose florist has created the ‘Rose Drop’, where 1,000 premium Ecuadorian roses are dropped by helicopter outside a lover’s house or garden, for the ultimate Valentine’s bouquet. This is *clearly* a gift from someone who hasn’t been hit by the recession!

OnlyRoses offer the highest quality fresh-cut, premium Ecuadorian roses with a choice of 250 different varieties, in a range of colours, shapes and sizes, up to 1.80 meters tall. The roses are sourced directly from Ecuador three times a week, ensuring they are the freshest and have a longer vase life than any roses found in England.

In addition, their new lasting range, The Infinite Roses, are real premium Ecuadorian roses that have been preserved to last a year or longer. They cannot be told apart from their fresh counterparts, and come in natural, as well as many other unusual colours, like black, purple, blue and dark green. The most stunning arrangements can be made with these lasting roses to fit any style or space.

The Rose Drop costs £9,640 for delivery on Valentine’s Day (or 11th-15th Feburary)

Girl Geek Guide to Online Dating: The DO’s and DONT’s

Step 1

So we begin…before you enter into the world of online shennanigans, just stop and take a moment to work out exactly what you want, I mean in the words of my beloved spice girls what do you *realllly reallly* want…and more importantly once you’ve decided always remember…”dont waste the pretty!”

Being single is having the freedom to be choosy and keep your options open. In fact, sometimes it can be the start of a fantastic adventure, and sometimes it can be better than being with someone… (errr then again that kind of defeats the object here…)

We start with the Do’s


1. Do embrace your single status. According to a survey by Zoosk, 70 percent of women cite the freedom to “do my own thing” as one of the best aspects of being single.

2. Do practice your dating skills. But the good news is that, as long as you’re having fun, there’s no right or wrong way to do it.

3. Do think about what you really want – and live by it. Here’s an idea: take a piece of paper and write down five non-negotiable character traits (i.e. integrity, honesty, loyalty (sexy bod) that someone must possess in order to be with you. Refer back to this list when deciding whether you want to date someone(maybe not in the bar on the actual date – that would be weird). It’s hard to be level-headed about your relationship when you’re in it.

4. Do new things. People with hobbies, interests, and passions naturally attract other people. Single people can do what they want, when they want – just think of the possibilities! Be it snowboarding or skydiving, there’s nothing more attractive that someone who is passionate about something. Whatever it is including being passionate about you!

Now it’s the Dont’s


1. Don’t be afraid to go after what you want. The worst that can happen is you don’t get it; which, if you didn’t have it in the first place, isn’t making your situation any worse than it already was. Statistically, the more you try at something, the more likely it is that it’ll happen. This is simple mathematics. Probability is on your side.

2. Don’t ever feel sorry for yourself. Everyone loves a single girl! Desperation is a serious turn-off; independence is a turn-on. Some dates will be better than others and no one ever gets what they want all the time – that would be too boring. So, view singlehood as a freedom, rather than a burden, and feel empowered knowing that you don’t need anyone else to make you complete, that you can be complete on your own. A relationship, if you want one, is just icing on the cake.

3. Don’t wait for Mr. Right to do all the things you want to do in life. Enjoy the right now, whatever your dating status, fulfil your dreams on your own and with friends and family.

Tune in next week for Step 2 and more tips in the girl geek guide to dating…

The Abbey is a tweet-free zone!

You’d like to think that guests that had been invited to the Royal Wedding would *actually* like to concentrate on the proceedings rather than obsess over social media, but sadly in this day and age someone on the royal guest list will probably want to succomb to the temptation of tweet.

With that in mind, guests will kindly be requested to switch off phones before entering the Abbey and approximately a hundred ‘voracious’ media types will be housed in St Margarets Chruch where they can tweet to their hearts content. Sixteen lucky reporters will be in attendance at the service and they are expected to report after the event – as opposed to during.

Over two billion people are expected to watch the ceremony worldwide and all can say is I hope the Twitter servers are at the ready!!

What do you think? To tweet or not to tweet?
