Starting to Feel Like Home {The Bouqs}

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

This post is sponsored by The Bouqs. As always, thank you for the support!

We’re slowly but surely getting settled in to our new house. We still have boxes to unpack and furniture to buy, but our home is finally at the point where it feels homey. Before we moved, our lives were packed away in boxes and everything just felt so unsettled. Now, I finally feel like things are coming together and our new house is starting to feel like a home.

One thing that really started to make our house feel like a home was a special shipment from The Bouqs, a new flower delivery service that’s easy (just order online), fresh, and beautiful.


The flowers are cut the SAME DAY that you order them and then shipped the very next day, so you’ll receive them quickly, which means they’ll last longer.


The flowers are shipped directly to your door from farms, so they’re not waiting in warehouses until they’re ordered. This, of course, means that your order is always fresh, high-quality, and gorgeous.

You can also include a special note with your flowers if you chose to gift them to someone else. I sent a bouqs to Mal. Awwww! He thought it was very sweet.


What was especially great about ordering from The Bouqs is whatever you saw on their website was exactly what you received in the mail””no substitutions, teddy bears, or cheap candy. What you see is what you get.


I also liked that there was a filter option, so you could shop by color or specific flower. Snapdragons and sunflowers are some of Mal’s favorites, so I ordered the Majestic and Marvelous bouqs. Both arrived as beautiful as they appeared online.


The bouqs are really affordable since the price you pay is just one flat rate””no up-sells or hidden costs””and shipping is always free. Don’t ya love that? Again, what you see is what you get with The Bouqs. If you’d like to try out The Bouqs for yourself, click here to browse their Bouqs and use code SUNSHINE to receive 15% off your order! Just a heads-up: This offer expires on 8/6/15. 


Another neat thing about the flowers from The Bouqs is that they are grown on the side of an active volcano in Ecuador. They get a ton of sunshine and the mineral-rich soil makes for even prettier flowers. All of the flowers are grown at sustainable, eco-friendly farms that follow strict responsible farming practices. They are also 3rd party certified by Veriflora and The Rainforest Alliance, so you can feel good about your purchase.


This bouqs was so huge, I didn’t have a vase big enough for it, so I ended up splitting it into two smaller vases, which meant we had even more fresh flowers throughout our home!


I really enjoyed my first experience with The Bouqs, and I know we will use this service again in the future. It was so incredibly easy (and fun!) to place my order, and the quality of what arrived at our home was quite impressive. The bouqs were some of the most beautiful I have ever seen. They definitely made our home feel warm, cheerful, and more like our own.


Questions of the Day

Finish this sentence: Home is where the _____ is?

What is your favorite flower(s)?



  1. I love the bouqs! I used them to send flowers to my mom this year and they were so gorgeous. The flat pricing is also awesome – I’ll never use anyone else for sending flowers again!

  2. Those flowers look so beautiful! Fresh flowers make everything seem better. I would have to say home is where the fiance/dog are…it doesn’t matter where we are as long as he’s with me and Selma is nearby 🙂 What else could I need?

  3. LOVE your bathroom!! This seems like a great service. I have been getting flowers at the farmers market this summer, sometimes only $7 for a HUGE bouquet that I split up into 3 smaller arrangements. I think The Bouqs would be great for me during fall/winter time!

  4. I love Bouqs! I love that you actually get what you pay for and there are no extra fees, etc. Can’t wait to see the rest of your new home! How exciting!

  5. The flowers in the first two pics are stock. They are incredibly fragrant! They should fill your new home with a lovely smell! Beautiful!

  6. Home is where my LOVES are 🙂

    My favorite flower is the peony, especially pink ones! Had them in my wedding bouquet.

  7. So the flowers are grown/from Ecuador? Cut the day you order them and arrive at your house the very next day? I am not understanding the logistics!

    But very interested in the company..

  8. Curious how long delivery takes. You said they are fresh cut and shipped same day from Ecuador? How long did it take to arrive? Thanks!

  9. Congratulations on the new house!! I totally agree that flowers can help to make a home feel more comfortable and welcoming. I’ve been thinking about trying Bouqs, so it’s nice to hear you liked them!
