Flowers For Dreams - Chicago Florists


 I am very excited to introduce everyone to Flowers For Dreams, 
they are Chicago based florists that give back to Local Charities.
Every month they choose a cause and donate 1/4 of their profits to the charity.
I was given the opportunity to try out the service and I am very pleased with it.



My delivery date was on Monday October 20th between 11am -4pm. 
I received the flowers around 11 am and  as you can see from the picture above they are beautiful.
The bouquet I got was the Fall bouquet it consisted of sunflowers, carnations, roses, and tulips.
They colors all meshed well together and they came wrapped in a recyclable coffee burlap and included a nice note from them as well as a coupon for the next purchase.
When I got home I put them in a vase and wrapped the vase in the burlap because,
 I loved the look it gave the flowers

I did the picture in a color pop feature to showcase the vibrant colors the flowers have.

Here are my flowers on  Day 5. They still look gorgeous and are very much alive. 
I  noticed some new flowers that had bloomed.

Here are my flowers on  Day 7. They still look gorgeous and only 2 fell apart.
I removed the ones that fell apart and my flowers still looked great.
I am truly happy with the Fall Bouquet from Flowers For Dreams.
I highly recommend them to everyone in the Chicagoland Area, 
You will not be disappointment.

Smart Weigh Digital Pro Pocket Scale


I have been in search of a small scale to send out my blog sale packages and I had the opportunity to review the  Smart Weigh Digital Pocket Scale by Smart Weigh. 
I love that the scale is very light weight and easy to use. 
It has many weight options such as g, OZ, OZT, dwt, GN, and CT.  
You can literally put anything on it and get the exact weigh fast. It also has a tare function that will provide a net weigh. It also has a clear cover you can use for foods so the food is not directly touching the scale.  I am happy with the scale and hope to get a lot of use from it. 
If you are in need of a scale I definitely recommend trying this one out. 
Have you used a pocket scale before? What are your thoughts on them and your favorites?


Here is some information on the scale directly from the maker:
Scale features a unique and simple design with its stainless steel 3.94” x 3.7” platform. It is easy to operate by using the four sleek chrome buttons.
The #top500 is strong, accurate, fast, and user-friendly; will work great for any of your mailing, jewelry, reloading, and cooking needs
Functions - this scale can double up as a postal scale; the pcs function gives you an accurate count and the hold function will lock weight readings
Design - features a clear LCD screen lit by a bright blue backlight; will display readings in g, OZ, OZT, dwt, GN, and CT
Precision - manufactured with high precision sensors to provide the most accurate weight readings; weighs up to 500 grams in 0.01 Increments
Includes - 2 AAA batteries with a two minute auto shut off feature; the tare function will provide a net weight

    AHAVA Dead Sea Osmoter Concentrate

    I was recently given the opportunity to try out this AHAVA Dead Sea Osmoter Concentrate thanks to BeautyStat.  I was really unsure on what to expect from this product as I don't usually use serums or concentrates. What caught my attention was that it claimed to give us softer skin.
    I have combination skin and I always feel my face can be a bit rubbery or dry depending on the day so I definitely wanted to see how this concentrate would work on me. 

    I started to use AHAVA Dead Sea Osmoter Concentrate at night right after washing my face and before my moisturizer.  The bottle is glass and has a pump, the texture of the concentrate was soft and looked a bit cloudy. I used 1 pump and dotted it on my forehead, both cheeks, and chin. After dotting the product on I used my fingers to rub the product all over my face, it went on smoothly and as soon as I was done I was very happy. My skin felt smooth and super soft, I fell in love, I even had my boyfriend feel my face.  After applying my moisturizer my skin still felt soft, smooth, and even a bit firmer.

    I definitely recommend you to try this out, this has been added to my nightly skincare routine and I am in love. You will notice the results immediately: A smooth and soft face.
    Here are some details directly from AHAVA: Dead Sea Osmoter Concentrate, a skin-optimizing serum that recharges, rehydrates and illuminates skin for a more youthful complexion. It’s also powered by a triple concentration of AHAVA's proprietary Osmoter blend of natural Dead Sea Minerals
    found in all of its products.

    Have you tried this Dead Sea Osmoter Concentrate or any other AHAVA products?
