Things We Love: The Bouqs

Screen shot 2013-08-28 at 4.41.43 PM


We are big advocates of stopping to smell the roses, but since finding out about TheBouqs.Com, we’ve come to a screeching halt! We need a new word for OBSESSED! With our already growing love of herbs and plants, we couldn’t believe our noses when we found out about In nutshell, you get 40 bouquets of flowers to choose from, for 40 dollars. That includes shipping and NO hidden fees. Plus, speedy delivery!


The Bouqs cut their flowers on the day you order and deliver straight from the farm so you get the freshest bouq possible! This means delivery just 4 days after cut, vs 10-14 elsewhere. They deliver stems grown on the equator, and 10,000 feet above sea level, which means one thing: sun. And more sun means more color. From lush lavender to butter yellow, you can check out all of the fabulous hues here!


Our favorite part? Bouqs are fed by pure volcanic snow melt and mineral-rich, ph-balanced soil. That means premium stems all around! While most floral companies waste 1 in 3 stems, The Bouqs only CUTS what they SELL.

Get 10% off your first order by using code WELCOME10 upon check out! No better way to celebrate the end of summer than with freshly cut (and we mean, FRESH) flowers. Start here. Happy Bouqing!

Things We Love: 40 Days of Dating

As women, in matters of love, we very often ponder the idea of “The One.” Is he? Isn’t he? Will he be? How will I know? We recently came across an unbelievable tribute to the art of finding Mr. Right, aka 40 Days of Dating. Meet Jessie and Tim, two single Manhattanites with very different dating pasts, a present day best friend-ship, and a daunting dating future. Equipped with brutal honesty and open minds, Jessie and Tim agree to explore dating each other (of course, there are rules) to see if “your best friend can ultimately be The One.” Needless to say, with only a few days left of their 40-day journey, we are more than intrigued and holding onto the edge of our laptops.


40 days of dating


All the skincare in the world couldn’t take the place of the glow that comes with feeling love or being in love. If any of you are currently contemplating where you stand in your current relationship, check out this goodie we stumbled upon somewhere around Day 15 of 40! :) Before reading their online diary, watch this video to see a sneak preview of the curious lovebirds in action!


Enjoy :)

Things We Love: EnvyDerm Volumizing and Conditioning Lip Plumper

Screen shot 2013-08-01 at 9.36.05 AM

We love full, luscious, dewy lips, which is why we had to try EnvyDerm’s Lip Plumper! Not only did all of the delicious hues catch our eye, but once we found out it was packed full of Organic Argan Oil (we’re biased, we know), we were sold! We drenched our lips  in this irresistible, juicy gloss and loved the range of sheer to semi-sheer. Plus, it’s fortified with over 13 organic moisturizing oils, vitamins, super fruit berries, and powerful extracts to soothe, soften, condition, and prevent dryness while providing maximum protection. Throw in some peptides to boost collagen and enhance our lip volume, we’re just not sure there’s gonna be another gloss in our makeup bag this summer.


Now that you know what it’s packed WITH, here what it is formulated WITHOUT: Parabens, Synthetic fragrances, Sulfates, Phthalates, GMO’s, Tricolsan, Mineral oils, Animal products. Go EnvyDerm!


Our favorite color? Je T’Amie, a shimmering strawberry red.
