An Oldie but a Goodie : Breakfast in Bed

There are a million of effervescent thrilling ideas to woo your significant other - from small gifts to grand gestures.

Breakfast in bed is proven, tested, smile-inducing guaranteed and is always welcomed. Especially, if you pay attention to the little details, like fresh flowers, how she prefers scrambled over poached, brioche toast or crumpet, or if she enjoys a unique artisan-made jam!


She will be left awed - and the thanks you will get? Priceless ;)

P.S. Thanks to and for sending us a yummy jar of Sqirl Blueberry Rhubarb jam! 

Give Your Significant Other a World of Pearl

While trolling for gift ideas for her, looking for something to add to the fresh flower bouquet and last longer than a box of Spr√ľngli, I was pinged and pointed to pearls. If you think pearl is a been there, done that gifts or plain jane what-nots, think again! They are all the rage elegance and sophistication among the trendy ladies and gents, with its classic look reinvented - to be styled and layered with other materials (metal, leather, satin, and chunky bold accessories)


No over the top sparkler,  simply something a'fancy with a hint of romance, and a hearty amount of style, these delicate pearl numbers are sweet as they are sentimental. Once a symbol of wealth and status, many still believe with its meaning purity and gentility - it is a gift for the bride on her wedding day. In this new age, this oldest gem known to man is quite popular in the fashion world. Also, think special occasions: birthday, Valentine's Day,  anniversary, and the coming soon gift-giving holiday season.


Statement making, big budget approach: lavishly go with the Tahitian pearls, aka the black pearls. They have an exotic range of colors from peacock green to silverish blue - and the GIA certified specialists at The Pearl Source hand picked each for grade, color, and size match, so you'll get the best from Tahitian (and some French Polynesian) Pinctada margaritifera oysters, exclusively.

Just right, classic approach: go with the fresh water pearls. They meet the style standard with substantial lustrous look (we tried them on, the result: Mrs. Well-Groomed was followed by compliments all night long) yet are priced in the realm of reality. We recommend the high grade AAA (top 10%) and very high grade AAAA (top 1-2%) pearl, like those featured here. Even when you get a set of earrings, necklace, and bracelet, you could still have some disposable for fancy dinner.

Feeling smugged yet? Well, you know what they say: "You cannot go wrong with pearls." Mr. & Mrs. Well-Groomed agree.
