The Burning Question for February… What do you get your wife/girlfriend for Valentines Day?

Fear not, the important thing is that you don’t forget!

Sometimes it is the simplest things that are the most important, such as a quick hug when its not expected. Or a cup of coffee in bed or that most precious thing for parents – a lie in at the weekend.

You do not have to spend a fortune, red roses although gorgeous are not as nice as a bunch of spring flowers, especially if they smell wonderful. Or maybe that’s just my opinion. I was never the traditionalist. Although the red roses I have used in the images are quite beautiful, however as you can see I am contrary

I would be delighted if you wanted to give that special lady a piece of Bish Bosh Becca’s jewellery. There is quite a wide range for you to choose from. From simple single pearl pendant with a heart in silver or gold, pearl drop earrings or a pendant and earrings set to big and bold murano heart necklaces. There are also quite a few earrings with hearts.

If hearts are a bit obvious for you, then there are always the modern symbols of love, such as the love knot. An intricate knot, so that the ropes seem like one, and without beginning or end. (There are wonderful modern pearl chokers with a love knot or stylish hoop earrings on Bish Bosh Becca should you be looking)

Did you know also know that that Shells, were ancient symbols of love by cultures as diverse as the ancient Romans, Hindus,and Native Americans? Venus, Roman Goddess of love and fertility, is often depicted standing in a scallop shell, where she was created from sea foam.

Or the humble apple is a well-known and ancient symbol of love in many legends and stories. It also has various meanings attributed to it. Think of the biblical Adam and Eve, with Adam eating the forbidden apple, the fruit of knowledge, at Eve’s bidding. In this tradition, the apple represents temptation. Venus, Roman goddess of love and desire, is also often depicted holding an apple, so it can be said that the apple represents the slightly dangerous, seductive and sexual aspects of love. But that’s upto you and nothing to do with me.

Whatever you choose to show her you love her, you can be reassured that your jewellery order will be made with love and beautifully gift wrapped.

Naturally I think Arians are brilliant whilst recognising my own impulsive nature at the same time. We can’t all be perfect!

The very first Sign of the Zodiac is Aries. I am not sure why we start with Aries at the 1st, maybe its because the Romans initially considered March the 1st month of the year (but thats a whole new blog- What did the Romans ever do for us…..) And, funnily enough, the ones born under this Sign consider themselves as the first. Luckily I am the eldest so in that respect I did come 1st!

Arians exhibit energy and dynamism, and with their innate charisma, they are often able to convince and lead people effortlessly. The Zodiac Sign Aries is found to be compatible with the Signs Sagittarius, Leo, Aquarius and Gemini (Leo is the best suited among others, as a partner for Aries). In relationships, it is often found that the Aries partner is a loving and loyal one. 

Charismatic, courageous and friendly that they are, the Aries can become extraordinary leaders, provided they learn to be diplomatic and patient. After all, it takes a lot of focus to to be a great leader. In fact, since Aries have a tendency to keep experimenting, which may lead them to get into wrong places, they should figure out what’s best for them right in the beginning. 

Active, fiery Aries also have a tendency to bite off more than they can chew. Before taking something apart, they don’t stop to wonder if they can put it back together. Besides, they constantly require others to motivate them to get going and do their best, and when they don’t get it, they blame others for not being supportive and encouraging. But the fact is, it is an excuse for their own idleness and unwillingness to find a driving force.

Famous Arians include Leornado Da Vinci, Vincent Van Gogh, Raphael, Maya Angelo, Nancy Pelosi, Elton John, Jackie Chan, to name a few. And I am delighted to say I was born on the same day as Mary Berry!

I know you do already know this but Bish Bosh Becca does sell just the Aries Zodiac charms as well as lockets, necklaces and bracelets. So hopefully there will be something for all budgets and occasions. Then you can create the perfect keepsake gift for that special Aries woman.

I hope you liked finding out a bit about Aries and that there was some nugget of information you didn’t know, evenif it’s that my birthday is the same as Mary Berrys.
