Have you fallen hook, line and sinker for... the single life? Are you feeling the wave of self-love and appreciation pioneered by female celebs like Emma Watson and Lizzo, who are redefining what it means to be single today?
We feel you. From increased independence to new levels of personal growth and self-awareness, there are all kinds of reasons to love the solo life.
Now flower delivery service Interflora has launched a first-of-its-kind 'self-partnered' bouquet collection, after research based on social media data revealed that rising numbers of Brits are choosing to stay single.
The data - gathered from 104,000 social media posts about single life in the UK from 2019-2020 - showed an increase in women favouring solo cinema and theatre trips than the previous year.
There was a whopping 84,000 UK posts about solo travel too, with singles using the #solotravel hashtag like a badge of honour.
Basically, people were loving their bad ass single selves (as they should) and Interflora want to reflect that in this new collection.
Designed for singletons who want to treat themselves to a luscious bouquet or two, the range can be shopped for using a 'match-making tool'.
The idea is that the floral match-maker uses your likes and dislikes to generate a gorgeous bouquet tailored to your personality.
Each floral arrangement takes inspiration by a public figure who is owning being single in 2020.
Oh, and did we mention that you can include a 'note to self' with your bouquet? That's some words of encouragement, an inspirational quote, or an acknowledgement of your own accomplishments.
You can choose from...
The Self Love Queen
For all the "vivacious and fun" types out there, the Self-Love Queen is the Lizzo of the flower world. A loud and proud concoction of "pink lillies and voluptuous roses to symbolise love and acceptance... You got this!"
The Bold Beauty
Strong yet understated, The Bold Beauty pays tribute to British powerhouse Emma Watson. Classic ivory roses symbolise thoughtfulness, grace and charm. This is a bouquet for anyone who shares Emma's self-partnered philosophy.
An ode to Ariana Grande, The Dreamer is for free-spirited singletons who think big. Pink roses to symbolise gratitude and happiness, white lilies represent virtue, and lisianthus for appreciation. Dreamy!
The Fierce Independent
Selena Gomez - who recently described herself as "super, super single" is the inspo for this pretty bunch of blooms. Selena loves hanging out with her dog, so this bouquet is pet friendly and features three stunning varieties of roses.
All The Sass
Introducing... the RiRi of Interflora. Stylish and bright, the bouquet features "zingy purple freesias coupled with blue irises to symbolise faith and hope". Pow!
