Oprah said it best, "Motherhood is the toughest job in the world," so no matter how busy a mom is, having a "me time" is important.
Marian Rivera’s idea of relaxation is surrounding herself with flowers.
At the launch of the new look of Hana Soft & Smooth shampoo last August 15, the brand’s celebrity endorser talked about her emotional affinity with flowers.
"Ever since talaga, kapag may nakakakita akong flowers, meron siyang positive na nararamdaman ko, parang something na natutuwa talaga ako.
"Doon ko nahahanap yung sarili ko, at habang ginagawa ko yun, masaya ako.
"So iba talaga sa 'kin ang flowers."
Marian’s love for flowers didn't just become a hobby but also a business.
The actress recently opened her online flower shop, Flora Vida.
Every order comes with a personal note to her customers.
"Sinasabi ko do’n sa letter ko na hindi perfect ‘yong pagkakagawa ko ng arrangement, pero yung ligaya habang ginagawa ko ito, sana ma-extend ko…
“Kasi para sa 'kin, yung flower kasi parang…live life in a full bloom.
“Ang saya mabuhay so huwag mong sayangin…
“’Yan ‘yong pinaka remedy ko, ang pinaka-reward ko sa sarili ko.”
Her choice of flowers?
“Mahilig talaga ako sa lahat ng bulaklak, pero in Flora Vida, yung business ko, more on roses talaga.”
