The Easter Flowers

Let's talk flowers. I love flowers. I love how they can say so many things that a person can't. Flowers even how simple, can perk up my day.

This coming Easter, flowers will be big on our celebration so I'm writing about what these Easter flowers could say:

  • Azalea ~ Take Care of Yourself for Me, Temperance, Fragile Passion, Chinese Symbol of Womanhood
  • Begonia ~ Beware
  • Chrysanthemum (general) ~ You're a Wonderful Friend, Cheerfulness and Rest
  • Chrysanthemum (white) ~ Truth
  • Chrysanthemum (yellow) ~ Slighted Love
  • Daffodil ~ Regard, Unrequited Love, You're the Only One, The Sun is Always Shining when I'm with You
  • Hyacinth (purple) ~ I am Sorry, Please Forgive Me, Sorrow
  • Hyacinth (red or pink) ~ Play
  • Hyacinth (white) ~ Loveliness, I'll Pray for You
  • Hyacinth (yellow) ~ Jealousy
  • Lily (white) ~ Virginity, Purity, Majesty, It's Heavenly to be with You
  • Lily (yellow) ~ I'm Walking on Air, False and Gay
  • Tulip (general) ~ Perfect Lover, Frame, Flower Emblem of Holland
  • Tulip (red) ~ Believe Me, Declaration of Love
  • Tulip (variegated) ~ Beautiful Eyes
  • Tulip (yellow) ~ There's Sunshine in Your Smile
There, I hope as early as this day you will be able to find the perfect flowers for you! :)

Beautiful Floating Lanterns

Wow! This is beautiful!

Since it's Lantern Festival on Sunday, I would like to share this with you. Lantern Festivals are held 15 days after the Chinese New Year, when the first full moon goes out. It also signifies the end of the new year celebrations.

The videoclip below is from a 2007 Lantern Festival in Taiwan.

Lanterns are floated up into air carrying prayers for love, happiness and abundance.

Little Miss Fashionistas/Bloggers

I read this article from Wall Street Journal and I'm just appalled on how kids are growing up these days! I'm all for teaching kids fashion and all that but with much care please!

A slice from the article: "Some of them are tall and some of them are short," Ms. Barba said.
A statement from a Mom who brought her 6 year old daughter to a fashion show in an attempt to teach her about the fashion world. Let me just say that I think Ms. Barba could have added, some are thin and some are not-so-thin. Don't you agree that kids these days are being mislead by the high fashion magazines they read and super thin models they idolize.

Yes it's cute and all that because these kids have their own BLOGS! and yes, kids say the darnest things! but I hope it won't give our kids a bad notion.

Read the article, The Little Fashionistas
and tell me what you think.

First Communion, The Orthodox Way

First communion is a religious ceremony commonly associated with the Roman Catholic Church, but how about the other religious groups, say the Orthodox Churches?Do they have First Communion? If so, how do they practice it?

Both Roman Catholic Church and Eastern Orthodox Church hold Eucharistic service, but practice Communion differently. The Roman Catholic Church traditionally separates Baptism from First Communion. In practice, the Catholic Church baptizes the child as a way to welcome it to the Holy family of God. Only when the child has reached the age of reason and has successfully met all Church requirements will then the child be allowed to First Communion.

The Eastern Orthodox Church practices communion differently. The Eastern Orthodox Church links Baptism, Chrismation (Confirmation) and Holy Communion. They practice them all at the same time! Very interesting, right? Children receive Chrismation (Confirmation) at Baptism. Parents carry their infants to the chalice to receive Holy Communion. Then the children receive communion from the chalice with a spoon called a "cochlear". During Communion, the bread and wine are mixed in the chalice. The spoon contains a small piece of the prosfir, Holy Bread, soaked in wine. Children may receive communion without confession or fasting until the age of reason. They are encouraged to commune at every opportunity.

Here's the video.

Classic Curly Bun

Choosing the perfect hairstyle to go with your daughter's First Communion dress can be exciting and on some levels, challenging! But armed with a blower in one hand, you can do magic! Especially if you're not making any plans to set your daughter for a hair appointment with a stylist.

Finding a hairstyle that suits her is easy. If money is not an object fo you, then you can choose to take the easy road: pick up the phone and make that hair appointment with the stylist. But if you're just like me, regular a do-it-all mom, then you already know the wisdom behind styling your daughter's hair yourself. With enough time to practice, you can certainly get the look you want for your daughter.

Here’s one First Communion hairstyle for you. Girls with medium to long hair can try this easy but elegant updo. Hope you find this post helpful and easy to follow.

· Wash your daughter’s hair. Then moisturize it with a hair cream while it’s wet.

· Split the hair in two sections to make two nice ponytails. Remember to be gentle as you pull the hair back.

· Use a curling iron or hot rollers to curl out all the ends of the ponytails, taking small sections and twisting them.

· Secure the hair curls by using hair pin and bobby pins around the base of the ponytail. Check the top, bottoms and sides.

· Use a hairspray to hold the bun in place.

· Finish up by adding Faux flowers.
