To buy the best gift for a person you love is not simple thing to do. For you it may be the great present of all, but it does not meet the expectations of the other person and this turns into big problem.

To make good present is sometimes matter of long time of research and learning the taste of the person, you would love to surprise. Some people however are natural at this and easily pick great things for everybody.

As important part of the gift, flowers also obey certain rules and some tips are needed to choose the best bouquet. These tips can be extremely useful for men especially, because they genuinely do not know the meaning of the flowers in general. If they try to remember these advices they will be at least able to pick fresh and nice flowers, but will the lady like them, no one on the earth can guarantee.

This article can also be in use for the ladies, who love to buy cut flowers to decorate their houses. They would love to purchase them fresh and keep them in this condition for the longest time possible.

You will be very lucky if you know trusted florist, who will never lie to you and give you the freshest flowers, without special asking. It is not always possible to know such a guy and that is the time when you need to stand alone and manage the situation in order not to get embarrassed with the choice you have made.

When you are looking for the perfect flowers, try to grab the inside once or those which are put in the middle of the bucket or any other object that holds them. This advice can be easily explained by telling that the flowers that are in the periphery are pressed by the others and often loose their fresh look. The same rule is in power if the shop has flowers inside and outside, directly on the street. In this case go inside and always pick the flowers from there, no matter how much you have liked some from the other side. The sun, as much as it is essential for the growing flowers is not that good for the once, that are cut. The light and the heat can make them dry and spoil their looks fast. They are also very vulnerable to the cars’ fumes and other weather conditions.

The next tips will help you determine if the flowers are cut soon or are staying for few days in the shop. Prior to all check the stem. If the flower is good, the ends of the stem should be green or white. Any other color will tell you that something is wrong. They will also look visibly fresh cut and not dry or spoiled at the ends.

The water, in which they are put, is also very important part of the valuation. It can be easily seen. It should be clean and the container itself should also look good from outside and inside as well. If any of these conditions is different, do not buy the flowers, because you will soon be disappointed.

The leaves of the plant, if there are any, is also sign of the withering of the flower. Usually they are the first to die. If they are brown at the ends and do not look fresh then the flower will soon lose its good looks.

The flowers of the plant should not be opened fully. Choosing the less opened to guarantee long life of the bouquet.

Author: Izzy Smith.

Valentine’s Day is believed to be the most romantic day of the year. No matter if you are in love and have your partner or you are secretly loving someone and are waiting for this day to reveal your feelings, this day is so full of love that we can hardly breathe.

The history of this day actually has nothing romantic about it. It is believed that it was named after one of two martyrs living in the past. They both lived in the 2nd and 3rd centuries.The next famous Valentine was Saint Valentine from the 15th century and it was an abbey existing in the past.People always love to make legends and there is one very popular story about the establishment of the Valentine’s Day. It is believed that St. Valentine was real person living in the 3rd century.

By this time the Church was going under very hard period and was enduring great prosecution. What was exceptional about this person is that the main thing that he was doing about this time was to help everybody to escape the prosecution and leave the city. He was also secretly marrying people which was something absolutely forbidden by that time in the Roman Empire. Unfortunately he was captures and interrogated by the Romans, who was in charge with that. He managed to impress his interrogator Claudius. As Claudius was trying with any possible methods to make him confess in paganism, Saint Valentine was trying to convince him back in the philosophy of the Christianity.Of course, after the “crimes” he made according to the former institutions in the Roman Empire, he was soon after that executed.

The legend continues though and does not end with his death. The story claims that he managed to heal the blind daughter of the person who was keeping him in the jail. Today it is one of the most beautiful days and holidays of the year. Though it is in the middle of the cold winter, it can warm up every heart that is in love.The red roses are the classical choice for this day. But we strongly advice you to put the effort not so much on the kind of flowers you will pick, but on the way you will give them to the person you love.


Many women will expect flowers and gifts on this day, but the surprise will make the day even more special. Do not wait for the evening to give her the most beautiful bouquet. Send it at the office. She will be prouder that ever and really feel loved and appreciated as all her colleges are admiring the magnificent bouquet you have picked for her. If you have chosen this way to send flowers, you have to give more effort in planning. If you want everything to be ok, order the flowers earlier.

Do not feel limited to celebrate the day of love for only twenty-four hours. If Valentine’s Day is on Friday or Saturday for example, make your life nice for longer and celebrate during the whole weekend. What is following next logically is a romantic trip. In case you do not have the possibility to travel especially in this moment, organize special evening and dinner at home.

Make special decoration and add special touch to everything. It is good idea the next two or three days to do everything, that you both like. For example go on the beach, watch nice movies or even do some sports together. The important thing is to do things together and enjoy them with lots of love.

To Rome With Love, new tourist images of Woody Allen

A new film by Woody Allen, one of the last old-school filmmakers.  I had many expectations respect to this film, especially after the success of Midnight in Paris, which he won an Academy Award nomination.

The movie is divided into four completely different stories and the same time so common,  that cause some confusion to the viewer. With the characteristic style of Woody Allen, the film centers around the love, obviously are in the city of love. Rome.

The Cast includes Penélope Cruz, Roberto BenigniJesse Eisenberg, Alec Baldwin, Alison Pill and Woody Allen.

Not the best work of Woody but could have been one of the worst, unnamed Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Occasionally the film will produce you a smile, but no more.
