The {Perfect} Bouqs For Valentine's Day

I was provided with complimentary flowers to facilitate this review, but all opinions are my own. This post also contains affiliate links.

How are we already at the end of January?! Luckily, my least favorite month of the year is just about over, and you know what that means?? It's time to start planning for Valentine's Day! I've shared my thoughts on the holiday before, so no need to go into that debate (spoiler: I love it), but even if you aren't a fan, who doesn't like flowers to brighten up a winter month?!  I have the perfect Valentine's flowers for you this year, straight from the side of a volcano: The Bouqs.  What I love about The Bouqs is how fresh the flowers are.  They don't cut them until the day you order, with delivery just two to four days after they're cut.  And because of this, their farms are eco-friendly and sustainable.  What else could you want?  

Making The Bouqs perfect for Valentine's Day is the fact that all of the flowers ship for free.  So it's only $40 for an original Bouq straight to your someone's (or your own - totally my style!) door on the day you choose.  Most companies charge an arm and a leg for shipping on the biggest flower holiday of the year.  And bonus - click on the bottom right-hand corner of the webpage to receive 15% off your first order!  

While Valentine's Day is hard to forget (I hope) some other holidays might slip through the cracks.  The Bouqs offers a concierge service where you can set up Regular Blooms (once a week, month, or at any interval you choose), Never Forget (when you can input all of the dates you need to remember and pre-order the flowers to get there on the date you choose), or Just Because (when The Bouqs will randomly send your special someone flowers).

I chose the Killer Bouq which features some of the brightest pink roses I've ever seen.  They came perfectly, tightly packaged, and all I had to do was fill a vase, snip the ends of the roses, and enjoy them!

So, head over to The Bouqs, choose your favorites, and get them delivered for your favorite holiday (or just because!).

Minimoon Part 2: Disney World

Welcome back to Wedding Wednesday! I am so excited to share our weekend adventure with you today.  Living in South Carolina definitely has its perks (other than the fact that I'm not shoveling 3 feet of snow - oh hey, New England friends and family!).  We are less than 6 hours from Disney World, so this weekend, we headed down there for minimoon part 2.  To be honest, I think that no matter how late you go to Disney after you get married, that first post-wedding trip deserves two "...Happily Ever After" buttons and all of the congratulations you can get from the cast members :)
We went a little crazy and did all four parks in two days: Magic Kingdom and Epcot (and Downtown Disney) on Saturday and Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom on Sunday.  We hit all of the biggies (the new Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is awesome btw!), ate way too much, and even stopped to see a character in each park.  My favorite was definitely Buzz who told us to hold hands for the photo... I obviously had no idea what he was doing and messed it up... whoops haha!
RIP giant mouse ears /// most delicious Maleficent cake pop ever!
Now it's your turn! Share your own post with Macy and me for our weekly Wedding Wednesday linkup below:

January Outfit of the Month

Earlier this month, I told y'all about the awesome Charleston Blog Society event I attended at Vestique.  Seriously, I am in love with this little boutique in downtown Charleston.  Everything is so affordable and fashionable.  This month, I also wrote about my love for ankle pants, and in turn, bought 4 pairs while writing the post... whoops!  So, my OOTM for January combines these two fantastic things:
What I Wore:
Vestique It's Electric Cardigan
Mossimo Petite Ankle Pant in Navy Reunion from Target
My own tank from Forever 21 (probably 5 years old... oh, hey, college)
Mossimo Lakitia Sandals (similar style to these) from Target
Vestique gold earrings (from another blogger event)
Forever 21 Floral Wooden Heart Necklace

I have absolutely been loving this sweater with the ever-changing Charleston weather.  When it was strangely in the 40s a couple weeks ago, it was perfect with a black long-sleeve shirt, but in (my favorite) the 60s, I can easily wear it with a tank and be good to go!  I definitely feel like I will wear the sweater well into the spring because even though the pattern says "winter," the colors have the perfect springy feel.  We took these photos when we were out at Fort Moultrie a couple of weekends ago.
It was a little windy...

So, what do you think?  Anyone have any fashion suggestions as we approach spring?
