Drop Self Esteem and go for Self Compassion instead. We suggest you can do that as you go about preparing for Valentine’s and so much more!

Beloved Flower lover,

Relating to ourselves is really what its all about”.

“Forget comparing ourselves to others”.

“Be kind to yourself”.



In Mike Robbins’s short video, he teaches us that, “nothing changes until we do“.

We wonder what self compassion and self kindness can do for you during Valentine’s and beyond. We love to hear about your ideas abut self care.

About Thelondonflowerlover

Welcome to The London Flower Lover. We are florists who create floral collections to tell your real life story. With colour and texture, we take floristry into an entirely new direction based on the challenges and joys of your life. Offering what we call 'heart based floristry' we use style, fashion, and life situations and merge them with heart based lifestyle support. This inspiring blend creates so much more for those who love flowers. Using flowers in the traditional way of course, but always using flowers to open up a floralicious conversation about relationships of all kinds. We are a sort of work in progress of compassionately confirming how we are already on the inside, the love we want to see out in the world. That is mission of The London Flower Lover. So saying yes to recognising that is at the heart of this blog and using flowers to honour that inner world is how we use the beauty of giving and receiving flowers. This blog is your blog. It's as much about cultivating your heart, as it is about enjoying the physical beauty of flowers. It offers story, poems and video to reflect the life you actually live whilst showing beautifully inspiring collections of flower designs. Hand-tied bouquets, arrangements and more. All this with sought after tips from well established experts on how to keep a happy heart. This is what makes The London Flower Lover unique and magical. Yes, and that's how we make the difference that we do. When life looks, feels, or sounds challenging, we offer a sanctuary that you may dip into. A well of refreshment and strength that you may draw from. Sharing what others have found to be successful ways of being happy in the face of challenges, whilst letting flowers do the talking when we have no other way to interpret what is going on. Use flowers to help you re-discover, reveal and remember how you can still be despite challenges. Use flowers to celebrate and to embody the possibility of your heart felt desire, fulfilled. Use flowers in your life, to remind you of the beauty of your life. Use The London Flower Lover today. We invite you to stay curious in this floral universe as you explore the love in the heart. This is a floralicious world.

  1. I wrote today about my long journey to health after a rare disorder took me down 3 years ago. I had to fight back to be a portion of who I was. I have to be kind to myself today and accept the new me. I do so by making smaller expectations and goals.

  2. I love this approach! The whole idea of self-esteem has morphed over the decades into something that looks a whole lot more like egotism and self-centeredness than mere cognizance of our needing to be mindful of our own needs in order to be healthy and happy enough to serve others. I am glad to see you making note of the difference and encouraging us to treat ourselves as tenderly as we should. It’s remarkable how much easier it is to love others properly when we feel contented ourselves!

    May you enjoy such goodness every day, my beauties, as you share with others!

    • Hello Beloved Kathryn.

      Yes, its’ a very important distinction. Life will give us challenges. These challenges really benefit us when we know that it is possible to heal our heart when we collectively have a true understanding of who we are.

      Our love lives provide us with the living word compassion to self and others.It helps us to recover and restore the vitality within our hearts and lives with others. Bringing this understanding forth during time when many of us are ‘getting real’ is welcoming.

      We get excited with your responses. We listen to them deeply.

      Thank you
