A Rose is a Rose

IMG_8126A rose is a rose is a rose. Or as William Shakespeare said, ” What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” There is just something about the smell of roses. And, they are the classic Valentine flower. Though, I would steer clear of a dozen red roses…so cliche. Roses mixed with tulips and hydrangeas or any other flower let the roses soar.

Perhaps something rose scented. The new RosaViola fragrance from Diptyque is divine. I’ll have to admit….I treated myself. The packaging inspired by Olympia Tan takes it over the top. But, the scent is still the star.IMG_0662Dark chocolate reigns supreme at our house and this dark chocolate-rose bar by L.A. based Compartes would send me to the moon!IMG_8168woa-embed-el-brunch-2-smallNever kiss and tell, but always have your lips “done”! Whether it’s the rose balm lipsticks from Aerin or Smith’s Rosebud Salve…you are kiss ready!

Wishing you bunches of roses from that special someone. Even if that someone is YOU!!!
