Happy Valentine’s Day! A Couple Special Picks for You
Happy Valentine’s Day! Though every day is a day for love, today I especially wish you extra love and gratitude!
Need some last minute Valentine ideas or add-ons?! Here are some of my picks for you on this special day of love:
Music:Donna de Lory- I went to a private recording/concert Saturday night, and it was great! She toured and was Madonna’s backup singer for years, then went on her own to pursue a solo career. I think she describes her music as “devotional world beat”, and her songs are both in English and Sanskrit. She is a channel for love through her silky, smooth voice.
You can download some of her soft and dreamy tracks from iTunes. Perfect for some romantic or relaxing time at home!
Chocolate: Of course on V-day there will be inevitably be some chocolate around somewhere, somehow. Check out the organic delicious dark varieties from Dagoba or Big Tree Farms (also sustainable).
Fair Trade Flowers: Since 80% of cut flowers are grown outside the US, fair trade flowers ensures that these farms get a fair price for their flowers, the environment is treated well and the workers receive fair wages. Because of Fair Trade, communities can reap the benefits of global trade while building sustainable social, economic, and environmental business practices. Check out One World Flowers as a great source!
Organic wine: For a nice glass of wine, why not sip one that is organic and without any added sulfites? Check out Frey Vineyards, which is America’s first organic vineyard and also incorporates biodynamic practices. Sulfites are synthetic preservatives which can cause allergic reactions and headaches.
Charity Gift Cards: What’s more romantic than giving for good and to help others? Instead of buying a paper card, why not send a charity e-card, donating to a cause of your choice. Check out the Charity Gift card site.
Make sure to end the night on the right note with some good desserts to make it truly spectacular!
