True Story: I sent myself flowers

by Erika Torres

Back when I could lose 5 pounds simply by skipping the bread basket, I watched Clueless and thought it was so cool that Cher sent herself flowers to make whats-his-name jealous.


One time I received flowers from a friend, and even though I knew it was from my friend, I asked my boyfriend at the time if he had sent the flowers. That was back when I was young and played games because I thought that’s how you were supposed to do it.

So when I came home from work with a bouquet of gorgeous flowers, I thought that Eric would at least cop a bit of a sweat, but that guy has not a single jealous bone in his body. Plus, he’s so used to me buying fresh flowers (I’m obsessed, remember?), he didn’t give it a second thought.

But alas, I sent myself these gorgeous flowers from TheBouqs. You guys, they come from a volcano.

These flowers are seriously gorgeous, but the best part is they are affordable.

Only $40 a gorgeous bouquet and that includes delivery. For a limited time, you can also get 15% off your first order with code Teacher15 (affiliate link).

I’ve sent flowers to people before as thank-you gifts (like for a colleague who helped me land a job, or my high school advisor), and I was shocked at how spending $50 would get me a sad looking daisy in a coffee mug.

It seems that Bouqs has cut out the middle man. Beautiful, affordable flowers delivered straight to your door within 2-4 days from the day they are cut, with a price tag that can’t be beat.

When I thought of doing a Bouqs Review, I realized I really just needed to show you how beautiful the flowers were so you could see for yourself why I’m so in love with them.

Hope you enjoy!

Hmmm I have an anniversary coming up and I’m really intrigued by this. I’ll have to look into it and see if the pricing is right. Thanks for the referral!

I love flowers so much, but only get them once a year for my birthday. I’m too cheap to buy them in general, but they are so lovely.

I do miss the days when I could lose 5 lbs just by skipping bread for a few days.. 🙂

My wife actually got some flowers a few days ago, and I was giving her a little bit of grief about her new “secret admirer”.. In reality, I wasn’t worried.. In the end, it ended up being from a neighbor (a girl) who was thanking her for her kindness in the last few weeks.

I love flowers, but I’m too lazy to buy them for myself. I also don’t like the fact that they never last long. Maybe someday when I have a yard I’ll grow and cut my own. 😉

My husband and I began dating in 2006 he suppresses me every couple of weeks with a bouquet of yellow roses (my favorite). Now he takes our oldest son KC (age 4) to help pick them out.

I’d get mad if MJ spent a bunch of money on flowers for me. They die. It’s a waste of money. $40 is totally reasonable for a temporary gift!! Bummer that you couldn’t get him to sweat it just at teensy tiny bit! But stupid jealously is not cute so it’s definitely better that he’s the way he is.
