Nowadays, the next holiday immediately kicks off the day after the last one ends. And while red is not a favorite color of mine, its always nice to see our world cluttered with hearts, flowers and loving sentiments.
I’m a big Etsy fan so I nearly flipped when I learned about BloomNation which is being referred to as The Etsy for Flowers. It’s the world’s largest online flower marketplace of more than 3,000 artisanal florists nationwide. The site lets you shop directly with the florists creating your arrangements rather than having to go through a middleman. All photos on the site are of the florists’ actual work and stock images are not permitted. In addition, you even receive “BloomSnaps,” which are photos of your completed arrangement before anything’s hand delivered and sent out the door to ensure that “what you order is what you’ll get.”. So you don’t have to wonder or worry about what was actually sent to your recipient. Same day hand delivery service and NEVER delivered in a box — flowers are already cut and artistically designed so the recipient doesn’t have to do any prep work for their gift. Named by Entrepreneur as a Top 5 Silicon Beach Startup to Watch and has been named as one of the 2014 Southern California’s Ones to Watch by socalTECH · The initial funding from BloomNation came from poker winnings. How’s that for playing your cards right?
If no one in your family suffers from peanut allergies, Peanut Hottie is the perfect treat for the nuts in your life.

The last time I went to Pottery Barn, I fell in love with two books (of all things in there). In My Heart: A Book of Feelings. I was drawn in by the colorful cut-out hearts shown through the cover. Turns out, sometimes you can judge a book by its cover because the message inside is excellent for youngsters. I thoroughly enjoy snuggling up with my children and reading this to them.
Here’s chocolate that you actually want to last a lifetime on your hips! If you’re a Shark Tank junkie like my husband and I, you may have seen the episode where the entrepreneur behind Mission Belt came to make a deal.
