Gwyneth Paltrow gets quite a bit of flak for her newsletter and website Goop being too pretentious and in Singapore terms ‘atas’. She always seems so perfect too and able to do anything, which of course is infuriating for lesser mortals like myself. Usually all the ideas on Goop are way out of my price range or look like way too much effort for a lazy bum like me.
But you know what? Today something in the Christmas edition newsletter appealed to me. Something I would love to try out. It’s is simple floral arrangement secret. You might know this already, but it’s new to me. You remove the leaves from the roses (even those right beneath them) so that they can pop in an arrangement. Also you tie a twine around a bunch of 6 or 7 roses to get a circular arrangement before placing them in a vase. I look forward to more simple professional ideas like this one GP. Very cool!
