“A heart is not judged by how much you love, but by how much you are loved by others” – Frank Morgan.
14 February might be Valentine’s Day, the day where everyone suddenly scrambling to find roses, chocolates, teddy bears and other little cute trinkets to give to their loved ones – but why just focus on THAT ONE day, we ask?
At the risk of sounding cheesy, LOVE should be shown every single day, in every step you take, in every move you make, in every breath you breathe (okay now we’re just quoting THAT Sting / P.Diddy song, we know).
By the way, how does P.Diddy go by these days? It used to be Puff Daddy, then Diddy, then P.Diddy..for crying out loud can’t he just use his real name – Sean John Combs?
But we digress.
So anyway, let’s take a look at some of the gift selections for her, and for him that you could choose from, just because…you love someone…auuuwwwww..
What better way to pucker up, than to paint the lips of your loved ones with Laura Mercier’s (G1.128) Mini Lip Glace Set? The rich and deep colours of the berries are perfect for that irresistible pout!
“Love – a wildly misunderstood although highly desirable malfunction of the heart which weakens the brain, causes eyes to sparkle, cheeks to glow, blood pressure to rise and the lips to pucker” – Author Unknown…doesn’t it just make your heart melt?
Are shoes and handbags the ones most desired by your loved ones? Then check these offerings from Carlo Rino (LG1.83) out – :
If G-L-A-M-O-U-R is your loved one’s middle name, then the Bling Out collection is definitely for her. These are perfect for those who want to wear heels, but not willing to bear the agony 🙂
One of the fashion season’s highlights isn’t just the fabulous bags; it’s also what goes inside them – of course, it’s always the inside that counts..*wink wink.
The Wallet Wonderful collection is highlighted with gloss, embossed logos, color blocking and meticulous stitching – ya’ know what they say, every little detail matters!
Have (Gorgeous Geometry) bags, will travel…For those loved ones who like their luggage in the same designs and colours – which is great to identify on the baggage carousel by the way – these bags are for them.
As the collection includes purses, trolley bags and sling bags (in which the straps can be removed) – they’re bound to be the talk of the…errr…airport for sure!
So what about the men then? Aren’t they entitled for a gift (or two..of course)?
We guess Frank Morgan wasn’t kidding when he said – “A heart is not judged by how much you love, but by how much you are loved by others.” So..let the men in your life love you more, by giving him…MORE!
These bags from CEVE (LG1.113), or “men bags” as popularised by Joey Tribiani in an episode of FRIENDS, are for those who always have a lot more to carry than just keys and wallets.
Now they can carry more of their gadgets in these bags.
Showing love to your loved ones shouldn’t just stop at buying them clothing items – let’s think of their health as well, shall we? The Matcha Green Tea Powder from LOTS (LG1.98) is rich in L-Theanine – for those who don’t speak “Science” like us, it is a rare amino acid that affects the brain’s functioning.
We didn’t know that either, to be honest!
Besides containing a huge amount of the catechin EGCg (epigallocatechin gallate) – here we go again – which is proven to provide potent cancer-fighting properties, Green Tea is also excellent for our state of well-being, alertness and relaxation.
We wanted to say the much-clichéd “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend”, but then thought “You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams” by Dr. Seuss was so much better..
The classy pendant from Diamond & Platinum (G1.133) possesses a charming design with two hearts entwined as one. With one heart set in diamonds while the other is in rose gold – it makes a stylish gift for the woman who loves no-frills designs.
Make her stand out with the adorable pendant, and with the silhouette of a kissing couple as the main element, it’s just too hard to resist this!
Face to face, Heart to Heart – sounds like a song, doesn’t it? With SK Jewellery’s (LG2.125) Heart-to-Heart collection, delight your loved ones and maybe belt out a few tunes afterwards – a trip to the Karaoke joint sounds good!
For the (ehem) cooler Gen-Y(outh) of today, Li Ning (F1.89) has come up with The Heritage for both men and women. Still, the ol’ skul’ elements are injected onto the design, with some modern twists like a high- contrast patent finish heel and eye-catching tone-on-tone styling.
And so….If all else fails, there’s always ICE-CREAM!
A little indulgence now and then wouldn’t hurt, which is why New Zealand Natural’s (LG1.70) Banana Split and Yoghurt & Pudding Sundae are just oh-so-awesome for you..(err we mean, your loved ones).
Hope the selections would give you a few ideas 🙂
So..to round it all up, here’s a reminder from Samuel Butler, for all the romantic hopefuls out there:
“It is better to have loved and lost than never to have lost at all.”
