1800-Flowers.com Giveaway!! Closed



Everyone loves to receive flowers, especially on their birthday. There is nothing like that special smile you cant help but get on your face when you see a beautiful bouquet of flowers that are given to you. Flowers can brighten any day. The colors of different flowers can be very eye pleasing. Flowers can also be very beneficial to a persons well being!



Believe it or not, recent behavioral studies have uncovered quite possibly the simplest way to improve emotional health and wellbeing – flowers. Considering the fast-paced and highly-stressed lifestyle most of us lead today, this comes as a welcome discovery. Besides exercise and other personal lifestyle changes as stress relief, one can now use flowers as a way to feel better and more relaxed.

It has been found that being around flowers triggers uplifting emotions like happiness. Flowers are also able to enhance good feelings such as life satisfaction and also affect how people behave in a social situation.

A natural and healthy mood moderator, flowers are said to:

  • Immediately alter moods.
    When someone receives flowers, it has been proven that happiness is almost instantaneous, displaying excited smiles indicative of extreme pleasure. This result occurs in all age groups.
  • Effect moods in the long run.
    People who receive flowers are more likely to be less anxious, depressed and restless. They experience heightened enjoyment and are more satisfied with their lives than those who have not received flowers.
  • Create intimate bonds with others.
    Being around flowers makes people more sociable and leads to increased contact with others, especially friends and family.
  • Brighten up spaces and create a sharing atmosphere.
    Most people position their floral arrangements in highly visible places such as the living and dining rooms, and in hallways and entrance halls. In other words, the flowers are placed in areas where visitors are welcomed.
There's no two ways about it. With such a compelling argument, there's no reason why we should let stress get the better of us. Surround yourself and your loved ones with flowers, and see the difference for yourself.


Just looking at pictures of flowers seems somewhat easing to me. And having them is even better!!
















I had mentioned in a previous post that October is the most celebrated birthday month. I was sent a beautiful bouquet of flowers, courtesy of 1800-Flowers. The bouquet was from their birthday collection. It may not be my birthday, regardless, these flowers are very beautiful! 1800-Flowers is also going to give one of my awesome readers a $40 savings pass.

Good Morning Katie,

My name is Arielle and I work with a small publicity company that partners with Christian authors trying to get their books off the ground. I read through many blogs to find the best possible readers for our authors. I am very eager to add you to my list of reviewers for a few specific books.

I'd love to send you one or two of these books to review, if this is something you'd be interested in please let me know! I hope to be hearing from you soon.
