Sunday, March 24, 2013 - My Fun Review!

Flowers aren't just for Valentine's Day.  They mark occasions of joy and sorrow, love and loss, celebrations and expectations.  I have found myself at the store in the late afternoon and have often stood in line behind a man buying flowers.  I like to imagine a reason he is picking up the bouquet - is he surprising his wife on her birthday or anniversary, apologizing for hurting his love, or could he be delivering a little bit of beauty to someone who is suffering a loss?  I recently lost someone dear to me, and just seeing the delivery truck pull up in my driveway was enough to bring me to tears. The thoughtful gesture of giving flowers to another lives on and fortunately, we have more options of what and how we give them. 

In order to give an accurate review of the site, I had to order something from the site.  I must say, I had a hard time choosing just what I would order.  In the end, a special offer caught my eye - For $29.98 I ordered the Premium Grower's Choice.  I didn't know what flowers I was going to receive, but  I did upgrade my order for their Romantic Version which came with a box of chocolates, a premium vase, and a cute teddy bear.  The upgrade was just $9.99 more.  I was super impressed at all of the flower varieties, and they had some great sales on different flower options.  I chose my delivery date, and waited to see what the Grower's Choice was going to include. 

I knew when the FedEx truck pulled up, my flowers had arrived. They were expertly packaged with the stems kept moist and the roses (yes roses!) enclosed in a box protected from harm. They were arranged perfectly in the box, and I didn't quite do them justice as I placed them in their vase. I received 2 dozen red roses, a beautiful red vase, a small box of chocolates, and a super-soft bear. It was more than I hoped for, but exactly what I wanted! It took a little explaining to get my husband to understand how this beautiful arrangement came to me.

I love roses, but I have never had a bouquet last more than 3 days.  One thing I just love about is that their flowers are GUARANTEED to last 7 days.  I was going to put them to the test!  Here is a picture of me and my roses a week after they arrived at my house.  They are still beautiful and fragrant.  I have moved them around to different locations in my house just so I can enjoy their beauty.  There is nothing that can compare.

 Here we are at the end of March with Easter just about to spring on us.  What comes next? - Mother's Day of course!  I think is a great option for sending gifts to our moms.  I know I would count myself lucky to receive a box from my husband and children. not only offers beautiful flowers, but amazing plants as well.  A few that I found included Azaleas in a cute Birdhouse container (just $34.99).

I also found an orchid complete with a teacup pot ($29.99).  This dainty gift would bring delight to any mom.  The last of many that caught my eye would be for the mom who loves gardens and spring, the French Market Bulb Garden complete with French Garden Trug ($44.99).  LOVE IT!

There are just so many options available on  It is just one of those sites you have to try out for yourself! 

There are some great COUPONS available for you to use at  You can save 15% on any order through the coupon site or 20% on any order over $39.  Just click on this LINK to see the many coupons offered.  The current coupons on the site expire on April 7th but don't fret, the coupon page is often updated with new offers!  I can't recommend enough.  There are no lines to wait in, beautiful flowers arrive at the destination you choose on the date you choose, and the flowers that are delivered are of the highest quality.  When you factor in their incredible prices and selection, is a great option for many gift-giving opportunities. 

I was offered a choice of products at through the 
Red Envelope Great Gift Program in return for my unbiased review. I found it difficult to narrow down what I received as the site has so many wonderful options.  I would freely choose as a site to purchase flowers and plants to send for any occasion. Opinions in this post are my own, and I will only recommend products and services that I believe are worth sharing. Thanks for reading and make sure to share joy through beautiful gifts with those that you love!

Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil Review

I have thick frizzy hair that is hard to control so I was really excited to be chosen by Bzz Agent to test out the new Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil by Garner Fructis. I am impressed that the product is meant not only for hair, but also for skin. It’s perfect for everyday application and how it’s the first product of its kind made available in stores like Target and Walmart.

I see a huge improvement in my hair.  This solution does a great job of moisturizing my hair while reducing the frizz.  The smell is great too!  It doesn't take much for a great result, and I would caution others not to use too much as it can leave your hair looking greasy if too much is applied.  I have also found that it works well on my arms and legs - no more dry looking skin.  My skin now glows.  This is a great 2-in-1 product at a great price.  Two thumbs up from this mom!

I received the Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil from Bzz Agent.  I was asked to give my unbiased opinion as you read above.  I was given a full sized sample for free, but the opinions of the product are completely my own.  You too can test out products through Bzz Agent - check out for more details.
