The Bouqs Company!

Have you ever gotten really close to missing an anniversary, birthday, or special occasion? With Bouqs you don’t have to worry about scrambling to get a gift last minute. You can set yearly reminders to automatically send flowers to your loved ones. You can also have flowers delivered weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or at random dates. (You’re welcome gentleman!) They’ll also make great host/hostess gifts!

Bouqs sent me one of their bouquets and it was absolutely gorgeous. I chose Confetti – a bouquet of farm-fresh roses. I was so surprised by how vibrant the colors were and how long they lasted. I was talking to my sister about Bouqs on our way to The New York Botanical Gardens (more flowers) and she told me that they were on Shark Tank. I have to go and watch the episode. As someone in marketing, I can appreciate their witty flower names and copy.

The flowers all come from a Volcano and they are eco-friendly and sustainable. They are cut on the day you order and delivered straight from the farm! They flowers are delivered straight from Volcano stems from the equator,10,000 feet above sea level, “these Bouqs are fed by pure volcanic snow melt and mineral-rich, ph-balanced soil. And our California cut flowers come straight from eco-friendly farms on the coast! Bloomin’ sweet surf!” It’s a really cool concept! Their partners offer competitive, living wages and services like on-site child and healthcare, and adult education so they take care of the people who work hard to make it all happen!

Bouqs sent me these flowers but this is an honest review!

Where’d You Go, Bernadette

Where'd You Go, Bernadette

 

Overview: Bernadette Fox has vanished. When her daughter Bee claims a family trip to Antarctica as a reward for perfect grades, Bernadette, a fiercely intelligent shut-in, throws herself into preparations for the trip. But worn down by years of trying to live the Seattle life she never wanted, Ms. Fox is on the brink of a meltdown. And after a school fundraiser goes disastrously awry at her hands, she disappears, leaving her family to pick up the pieces. Which is exactly what Bee does, weaving together an elaborate web of emails, invoices, and school memos that reveals a secret past Bernadette has been hiding for decades. Where’d You Go Bernadette is an ingenious and unabashedly entertaining novel about a family coming to terms with who they are, and the power of a daughter’s love for her mother.

My Review: I ended up really liking this book. At first I thought it was a bit slow but once Bernadette went missing, I had to know what happened. I liked that the book was written through various pieces of correspondence between characters. It was fun to read emails, faxes, FBI reports, and more. Bernadette’s daughter, Bee, narrated throughout the book and it was interesting to read from her perspective. The book was funny, satirical, and exciting. I recommend it!

Next: The next books I’m reading are Me Before You and Lilly.
