Skillshare Teaches a Branding Class

I am very excited to say, I just signed up for my first Skillshare class… “Resume 2.0 – Develop a Killer Personal Brand Using the Secrets of Digital Marketers” taught by Amanda McCormick!

With a background working for major brands, startups and nonprofits, Amanda has learned how to derive the unique selling proposition of a variety of products…including people!

Branded by Flowers

Flowers are incredible for SO many reasons. They are strong, beautiful, and have the power to continuously deliver positive energy and happiness. It is no wonder each one has its own special meaning behind it!

These meanings are a fun way to add even more excitement to your next coffee table arrangement or your someday wedding bouquet!

Kate Middleton‘s wedding bouquet consisted of carefully selected flowers that all held personal meaning for her and William:

Lily of the Valley : Purity and Happiness

Hyacinth : Constancy 

Sweet William :  Obviously….
(but it means courageous behavior)

Myrtle : The emblem of Marriage and Love
(every royal bride since Queen Victoria has had Myrtle in her bouquet !)

Combine them all together and you have one royally beautiful bouquet!


There are tons and tons of flowers in the world, but here is a recent arrangement of meanings from Lauren ConradImage

Which flowers would you choose for your bouquet based off their meaning and beauty??!

Personally peonies {prosperity} and anemonies {unfading love} are my favs… Although I am a HUGE fan of color, there is something to be said about an all white arrangement. And that’s how I like these two together, all white, with the little splash of navy in the center of the anemone and just a hint of baby pink… could there be anything more perfect? I think NOT!
