We can enjoy the warmth of the spring finally, but I just realised that summer is on the way, I keep receiving invitations, so I seriously need to look around and find the perfect dress(es), since we are getting closer to the season of weddings. During my hunt for at least two dresses, I found the amazing PartyDQ webshop with the widest selection of all. I got so inspired that I have to share with you the amazing styles and of course my favourites. :)
At first I was amazed by the beautiful, bold colors, ombre effects and even patterns many dresses have. For an event as a guest for sure we could turn some heads in these strong tones and prints. I can imagine for a 'punk', crazy, theme wedding for the bride as well one of these floral printed gowns.
After soaking in all the positive vibe of these fantastic colors, I kind of turned to greys and pastels. I loved the pastel emerald dresses in particular. The fabrics, the layers and the draping are spectacular. But we shouldn't think that choosing a grey dress would be the simplest and most worry-free solution for our 'dress dilemma'. Even the grey has millions of shades to begin with, not to speak about the style of the dress, nevertheless the form of the event we are invited to. *There are certain rules we must follow in the general etiquette and dress codes of some events.
For a bride of course it is essential, but can be a stylish touch to have flowers in our hand or hair :) that are matching in colors and shape with our dress. That guarantees a perfect harmony in our look.
Just couldn't get enough of this greyish, blueish, menthol, pastel emerald tone. I'm still searching for the right name for this unique color. Works amazingly well with fair skin and with copper red hair... and coral lipstick.... and a bronze strappy sandal.
I had a very difficult time keeping to my original task - to choose two dresses that I could wear for two weddings where I was invited - and not to buy the dress I want to be the bride. :) ...well time will tell... 'never say never'! ...it's always better: 'I do." :)
P.S. These dresses are sooooo amazing, that I highly recommend that even if there's no invitations found you yet, You deserve to spoil yourself with one of them. They are a definite boost for you heart and femininity.

Happy 2nd birthday to PFL with some Pink, some Flowers and lots of Love!
I share my most favorite quote from Mr. Steve Jobs (RIP) with you and wish that you find your true passion and purpose of life!
"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."

It's a new year and if it is not exactly a new life, I hope it will bring new experiences and happiness!
...and to be absolutely 'original' I share my new year's resolutions with you:
P.S.: ...and the list goes on, but I will be super-satisfied if only these I could keep. Let's hope for the best! XX
It's already frosting outside, but that's no problem for the cute Erica flower. Even it looks much nicer with a little frost on its leaves.
Last, but not least. This month's flower is Zinnia - a true summer cutie :)
I love the mix&match summer bouquet of them. They are very fresh and quirky, but most of all so retro! I remember the days, when we spent our summer at my grandmother's. Her garden was full with Zinnias and many more of summer flowers. Such wonderful times... will be never forgotten.
P.S.: Even if today is the last day of August, it is not too late to have a nice Zinnia bouquet on your dining table.

Here we are - another month passed by. I don't even realized it that it is already the middle of July. Which is the perfect time to take a moment and cherrish the beautiful Hydrangea. Another of my so-so favorite flowers. (well, it would be hard to find any flowers that I don't like) :)
Some thinks Hydrangea symbolizes heartfelt emotions. Others that it can be used to represent gratitude for being understood. But it's certain to everybody that Hydrangea is the perfect flower to show comitment and graceful, enduring love on the 4th wedding aniversary.
P.S.: I just remembered that I have to water my very own Hydrangea outside my front door. XX

Our Flower Calendar is already half-full! Yeyyy :) This month our chosen flower is Peony.
Peonies are known as the flower of riches and honor. With their lush, full, rounded bloom, peonies embody romance and prosperity and are regarded as an omen of good fortune and happy marriage. Also, it considered the 12th wedding anniversary flower.
Maybe this or simply the fact that it's beautiful is the reason to be so popular choice for summer weddings. For sure I love it! Although I don't have a wedding to plan, I am buying it just for myself. :)
P.S.: Go and buy some flowers for yourself!!! If not now, then when??? XX

21 March 2012. :)
Although I thought it is today, I checked earlier and it was two days ago, when I started exactly 1 year ago writing Pink Flower Love. But who cares about 1-2 days? :)
I am celebrating my blog today. I still love it, every bit of it, love writing it, love reading it (sorry, but I do). And I love the fact that it is so much like me. The only place where I can truly be myself and honest.
So, I guess what I want to say is that I am so grateful to You, my beautiful blog (and of course to You my dear readers) and I wish a happy birthday and lots of years to come shining! XX
And to recall that first post... I cannot say it better than to remind you to:
/Imagine a new story for your life and start living it. by P.Coelho/
P.S.: I love You All
