Y’all tell me you like these ‘favorites’ posts. In fact, they are some of my favorites of bloggers I follow! These two favorites (have I overused that word yet?) come from other bloggers’ recommendations. AKA, reading blogs makes me spend money but I also save money learning about great deals!
Before Christmas Myquillyn posted about The Bouqs. I had every intention or placing an order but didn’t. THEN a few weeks ago Emily posted about The Bouqs! After seeing Emily’s post a friend came to mind I thought might enjoy some flowers delivered to her door. I mean, who doesn’t love that?!?!?
Exploring their site was a joy. It is clean and simple and they carry some of the most beautiful flowers I’ve ever seen. These aren’t your typical carnations with ferns.
These two photos are from the friend I sent my order to. Aren’t they gorgeous? I haven’t seen these colors before. Sigh, maybe I’ll send some to myself? I’m a firm believer in having fresh flowers around at all times. Thank you, Trader Joe’s.
If you use this link (or the ones above) you’ll get $10 off your first order! And they’ll give me a little referral credit as well. I didn’t post about this until I was sure of their quality – though Emily and Myquillyn’s recommendations are pretty dern reliable.
Now on to a totally unrelated favorite. Makeup brush cleaner. Yep.
Last week in Kate’s monthly favorites video she mentioned a Japonesque brush cleaner. I clicked on her link, read reviews, and went on with my day. Later in the week I was placing a Sephora order online – because free shipping plus 8% ebates on items I always use! 8%!!! I looked for that magical brush cleaner and didn’t even see the brand. Duh, Kate said it came from Ulta. I digress. In my inability to locate it, the Sephora brand popped up in the search. Of course it did. I got the small travel size (yeah, because I clean my makeup brushes when I travel?) because the regular wasn’t in stock. Y’all, I love this magical little brick of whatever it is. I’ve used purity cleaner for years on my brushes and it doesn’t hold a candle. My brushes are like new and the stuff that came out was pretty gross. So much pigment.
Please share any new favorites you have!
