The "Other" Sister

Happy Valentines Day!


Did you know the average bouqet of roses this time of the year is about $75?

Um, hello...there are plenty of other gorgeous flowers for a lot less. Be creative boys.

And if your girl demands roses only...find a new valentine! :X

Today, pink and red are EVERYWHERE.

But can't a girl love lilac? I feel like she's the "other" sister. Lilac needs more credit in the colors world.

My love affair with lilac started with a special nail polish package I got.

Isn't it soft and pretty? My nails and eyes were pleased.

Lilac has a little something something without overpowing your outfit. It's the cherry on top ;)

  2. Roses = sweet but overrated.
    I'm not a pink lover, but lilac is so pretty!

    Happy Valentine's Day, Hollieee :)

  4. I couldn't agree with you more on the roses! I've told my hubs the past few years to forget about V day. We love each other every day and don't give into the crazy marked up flowers and jewelery and fixed menus at overcrowded restaurants. We will spend a relaxing night in with home cooked food and the DVR :)

  6. I am LOVING that purple dress!!

    And I'm beginning to think I'm one of the only girls on the planet who hates roses. I can't stand them because they're the "staple of love" in flowers. Gross! Give me something different!

  8. i prefer ANY shade of purple to pink (unless it's a very warm, coral-y pink).. hehe i painted my nails purple this past weekend, because i was NOT going to paint them typical red or pink (: hehe and i agree with you about the roses only- find a new chick! haha one that doesn't care what kind of flowers or arrangements you buy...

  14. Truth be told, when I see people obsess over roses for Valentine's Day, I think to myself "Your priorities are in the wrong place" and "You must have so much money that you can make stupid decisions like that." :-) Happy Lilac Valentine's Day to you!
