The Bouq Company Flower Review – Peace Bouquet

Check out this bouquet of of white roses.  Aren’t they beautiful. The bouquet is called Peace and is from The Bouqs Company. I love fresh flowers in my home and was thrilled when they contacted me to review one of their products. They didn’t disappoint. This is a $40.00 bouquet, and the shipping was free.  They arrived within days by FedEx packaged well and fresh.    

The roses arrived as buds.  It gave me the opportunity to watch them slowly open into these beautiful roses.  What makes the Bouqs Company unique is that they ship flowers from an active volcano in South America. If you’re a buy American only person,they can shipped from sunny California too.  The flowers are cut only when an order is placed to ensure freshness and shipped directly to your door. This process eliminates flower shops and wholesalers, which eliminates an expensive price tag.  They will last longer once they arrive too because they having been sitting in a floral shop or warehouse.  

I love that the flowers can be ordered on-line and they have a variety of bouquets to choose from. I had a hard time deciding on an arrangement, The Bouqs Company sells forty different arrangements. The $40.00 price tag for a dozen of fresh, quality roses can’t be beat. You can also choose the Deluxe for $50.00 and the Grand for $70.00 from the Volcano Collection or choose from the California Collection starting at $50.00. The arrangements are perfect for Mother’s Day, birthdays, new moms, girlfriends, or to pamper yourself.  If you want to surprise someone at the office or have a beautiful center piece on your table for the holidays, one of their arrangements would be perfect.  

Besides the Peace Bouquet, other favorites were Cotton Candy, Diamonds, Earth, and Milkshake. Check out The Bouq Company and select an arrangement today.  The Bouq Company has been featured on The Today Show, Forbes and endorsed by Oprah, Courtney Cox and  Lauren Conrad.  They are stunning!

LayAway Is Back

Are you familiar with the layaway plan? It’s where you place items on hold in a store and you make payments until you get the merchandise paid for. It used to be popular in the 70’s and 80’s, but faded out when credit cards became the thing. With the economy the way it is, it looks like layaway is back and the way to go. I remember using the lay away plan at Kmart and this local department store called Nichols back in the day. I used the layaway plan for summer and winter cloths and Christmas items for my daughter. I paid a fee to the store, and than made weekly payments of $10 – $15. I look back now and my response is wow. Of course back than, my entire layaway was the cost of a pair of sneakers now. I don’t think $10 – $15 would put a dent in what things cost today, but I think it’s a great plan when you’re short on cash and you don’t want or have a credit card to use.
Toy R Us, Kmart, Sears, TJ Max, Burlington, and Marshall’s are big promoters of layaway. It’s a great way to ensure that you get what you want and you don’t have to go in debt to pay for it.  E-layaway is becoming popular with Kmart and Sears too.  Although Wal-Mart eliminated their layway plan, I love shopping at Wal-Mart on-line. They take Paypal, which works out perfectly for me. I’m able to use funds from my on-line business when I shop there. Wal-Mart also has free site to store shipping and low shipping cost to your home. I love shopping in my PJs, so I take advantage of shopping on-line. If I could figure out a way to have my groceries delivered, I would take advantage of that too.
If you are like many people whose funds are limited, but you can make weekly payments, you should check out these layaway programs. It’s a great way to release the stress of trying to figure out how you’re going to pay for a birthday gift, school cloths and Christmas gifts. If you would love to redo your bathroom or bedroom, but can’t afford to take the money out of the household budget. Put that comforter set or shower curtain and towels on layaway too. You’ll be glad you did.
