Flower Power

Every week I stop by the corner deli to pick up fresh flowers for my apt. I LOVE how it adds a splash of color and brings good energy into my home. I've always been a big believer of FENG SHUI-the practice of arranging objects in your home to help you achieve harmony.

In Feng Shui, it's believe that you can activate chi (positive energy) with flowers and plants to enhance PROSPERITY, HEALTH and HAPPINESS throughout the home or office.
PEONIES: regarded as the most supreme of all flowers. It signifies luck, prosperity and honor and is excellent for enhancing marriage opportunities.

ROSES: red, pink or white as well as PEONIES can be placed in the marriage area of your bedroom and also the living room to increase chances of attracting the right loving and faithful marriage partner. Place them in the SOUTHWEST corner of your home and it will
increase romance=).

RED TULIPS, ROSES, POPPIES and CARNATIONS: most powerful for activating strong chi or energy, especially placed near the front door or entrance

NARCISSUS: attracts good fortune.

ORCHIDS: portray culture and nobility. They make an ideal enhancement to the wealth area of the office desk or living room.

DAFFODILS, TULIPS, CROCUS and CALLA LILIES (Yellow Flowers): adds a dash of yang energy and promotes health, especially when placed in the center of a room.

In NYC, flowers are so cheap.  Guys have no excuse for not buying their girlfriends flowers. You don't have to wait for their Bdays, Valentines, or any major event to buy flowers...and especially the only time you give your girl flowers is to say I'M SORRY.

If you're a baller on a budget, you can get something for as little as $5 to 2 dozens roses for $12-that's a steal! Trust me, your $5-12 investment will go a loooong way and will give you a huge ROI (return on investment) guys!  Remember, it's the THOUGHT that counts =).
