A Spring Bouquet

It's officially Spring. I thought I would use this beautiful bouquet (Bea & The Lady) as my inspiration for today's post (see it up close HERE). I spotted it on instagram, instantly fell in love and curiosity led me to do a little more research. It's from a florist in Miami called Kalla. They're new & exclusive to South Florida. This particular bouquet is made of pink o'hara garden roses, asparagus fern and tippy succulent. Ready for the price? It's $140. So, if someone sends you one, you are super duper special to them ;) HaHaHa Chocolates & wine can be added. Delivery is included in the price ;)

1. Molton Brown Rhubarb & Rose Collection 2. Marc Jacobs Limited Edition Daisy Eau So Fresh Delight
3. Essie Spring 2014 (Hide And Go Chic & Style Hunter) 4. Kalla Florist (Miami) Bea & The Lady 
5. Tillie Sweet Treats Collection 6. Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Eau De Parfum 
7. Crabtree & Evelyn Rosewater Ultra Moisturizing Hand Therapy 8. Philosophy Star Fruit Kiwi & Berry Lime Martini Body Washes

Spring is a time for new beginnings & fresh starts (again)! How have you prepared? For me, lighter meals and more water. I've already cleaned my closet. I've purged, sold on (eBay) and have given away a lot of my clothes. I'm trying Soap & Glory products for the first time thanks to Kizzy of The Dainty Dolls House and Shea of I Would So Rock This. I plan on doing a Soap & Glory product review marathon on AVSB, since I have so many of their products now. Look for that soon :). I've been seeing lots of rose & other floral inspired beauty products lately, so I showcased them on the board. New brand (at least to me) of nail polishes called Tillie (started in 2012). They're 4 Free! Above is their Sweet Treats Collection. Right now they only ship within the US, but they are open to International retailers purchasing their products to sell. Finally, I REALLY need to start watching Game of Thrones! Two words...Jason Momoa! How sexy IS he (married to Lisa Bonet)!?! He's from Hawaii! ALOHA! LOL Is his character still alive? What season did he start in? If his character's dead, I don't want to watch. LOL How CHEEKY AM I? LOL Going to Netflix now! I think the new season starts in April? Jason Momoa on the brain!!!


Jane said...

Samantha Mariko said...

LOLZ....the awesomeness of Jason Momoa was what drew me in the show too. :D Kim, you'd love the series, but don't be attached to any characters...hahaha
Anyhoo, I do love the bouquet. I wouldn't get it for myself because of the price, but would definitely love to get them...ahem....

my friend burned me the first season of game of thrones...guess i should watch it!!

Mica T said...

That is a very cute arrangement, but very expensive too, wow!

Lovely selection of spring products though.

Glad you've had a good spring clean of your wardrobe! I've been thinking of listing a few things on ebay - I should really get around to it!

Emdem said...

Hahaha, I just watched some 'a dumb's guide to Game of Thrones' last night, I need to start watching it too, haha, is it too late to catch up with the story now? I don't know, haha. Yesss, very good reason to watch he is though! LOL. My reason would be the dragons too. Your skill to keep finding such cute and lovely things is seriously amazing! I love all flowery scents. :P It's so dear though, :S I'd be scared to watch it wither and fall apart, I'd buy it solely for the vase probably, haha. Happy first day of spring, Kim! :D


The Dainty Dolls House said...

These look gorgeous!! I look forward to your Soap & Glory post :)) Oh Game of Thrones is my show...I cannot wait till it comes on again!!I won't tell you what happens to his character, hahah!! But, you should watch as it's a fantastic show...though some read the books beforehand, but you don't really have to. A LOT has gone on so far, so make sure if you watch it from the start, not to have distractions :) So excited for it coming back!! Jason plays a really cool character :) Have a great day doll xx

Lilli said...

Ahah, he is so handsome indeed! I need to start to watch it too so!:P Kim u made me so laugh! Btw, that bouquet is so beautiful! And I need to try the ne perfume Dolce cause it inspires me everytime I see it! I still have to organize my closet instead, Im always lazy when it comes to tidy up! Kisses and hugs, have a lovely day Kim! xo

Natalia | Fashioned by Love said...

Pretty-pretty! I am in a all floral mood, too. :) Love Games of Thrones very much - took me a while before I finally decided to watch the series and now I am addicted. And no, I am not telling you anything about your favourite character... ;)

Pamela RG said...

Wow, you are so organized for Spring. It is still wintery up North here in Toronto. But those products are lovely. I love those Molton Brown soaps and lotions. They smell so good and so luxurious. I am looking forward to the Games of Thrones next month.

Nats ~Coral Tinted Perceptions said...

Seeing that Spring is starting for you it means officially Autumn is beginning here :(

Lovely post <3


Joie Fatale said...

Oooh1 All of the packaging look so pretty and cute!
On Game of Thrones (GoT)I'm sorry...but his character dies in the first season. But it's very important. The show is good, but not on Netflix. If you have HBO Go, you can see GoT there.
Its good, but, fair warning: LOTS of boobs...like, a lot.
But it is REALLY good.

Spring is in the air! I love this board of items you have here Kim. So refreshing to the eye and quite cheerful! I personally haven't gotten into Game of Thrones (yet) but yes he is one heck of a cutie!! Can't wait for your feedback on the Soap & Glory products!!

nancy @ adore to adorn said...

I'm currently in the process of purging and it's such a long process for me. It's just a lot of decision making since I literally go through everything! haha. BUT I cannot wait to clean the place and get a fresh start for the new season! =)


Kelly @ [Big Apple, Little Bites] said...

I LOVE crabtree & evelyn's rosewater hand therapy. And oh my goodness that bouquet is so adorable...but quite the hefty pricetag ha.

Vannessa@Luxuria said...

That bouquet is gorgeous. But of all the products you recommend, I certainly would prefer Jason Momoa (and I'm not even a Games of Thrones fan ;-)
Thank you for your lovely comments over at mine x

Kashaya said...

Oh so many lovely beauty finds.=)

Especially the polish, love the shades!!


Carmen said...

Spring for me means wearing my white pants and painting my toe nails again :D Your collage is so cute, I simply can't get enough of these Daisy Marc Jacobs bottles even though I think the smell isn't that overwhelming.

Tanya W. said...

Spring is all about clean and freshy. I haven't tried these product yet. I may one day soon. I love that show, cant wait for the new season on April.

Sweet vase.

I don't watch Game of Thrones but I saw a picture of him with Lisa (I had no idea either) and WOWZERS. GO Lisa. She's so fab. Snagging a super fine hottie ten years her junior!!!!

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

I'm so happy that Spring is here. This has been one wacky and long winter. That bouquet is stunning! I look forward to pretty flowers blooming everywhere soon. I'm in the midst of spring cleaning now and it feels so good to purge :)

Well you said a lot condensed in few lines!! Receiving flowers is such a pleasure, but in my view men who send flowers have always something to hide (like a disproportionate ego). Just a thought. As far as floral scented beauty products are concerned, there's this Italian brand, L'Erbolario (I don't remember if I managed to send you something from their White Tea Line gdmnd postal service) offering an array of heavenly smelling products. Looking forward to your review of Soap and Glory products, I've heard so much about them but I abide by Kim's scale of sweetness. By the way, I'm loving the Smashbox Photo Finish you sent me. Have you tried Anatomicals products? Their face sprays are awesome. What about Oh La Lift by Benefit? It's my new obsession!!! Ok I got carried away :-) I always keep in mind your blogging suggestions, I'd love another of your posts on the subject! Much much Love,

Ps. Talking of bouquet fragrances, you must try the latest from Elie Saab. It's couture in a bottle!

Ozden Ozdogan said...

I also want flowers for this spring from my man hehe..But he's clueless.How to give a sign? Because I never wanted flowers from him because I was feeling sad for flowers when they dry.

Thats one stunning bouquet, love your complimentary choices of products, looking forward to the S&G review!

Tina Bradley said...

I love your collection of spring goodies! Given my recent fascination with nail polish (smile), I'm salivating over the Essie products. ;) I celebrated spring's arrival by heading back to yoga class last eve (after almost nine months away!). It was wonderful. :) Hubby & sons LOVE Game of Thrones, but I just can't seem to get into it. Happy Spring! T. http://tickledpinwoman.blogspot.com

Carla TBB said...

I have to admit that spring is my least favorite season! But, with any new season I like to purge my closet as well! That gives me more space to fit in new things I might get!

Selina Kyle said...

OMG! This is such a cool idea! I would LOVE it if someone got me that! Thanks so much for sharing this with us!
It's sad that I don't actually live in US, I don't think that I would ever get this :'( *sob*
Anyway, have a great day, Kim :)


Who is that Girl Mo? said...

I don't watch Game of Thrones but that Jason guy is a good looking dude. :-)


Jocelin Leige said...

My best friend is addicted to that show, and I want to start watching sooner or later... I have a list of things to do this year lol

Nails My Dreams said...

Waaaaaa, nail polish!! Hehe. And Jason's character is one of my fave characters from Game of Thrones. Come, join us... watch it now.. Hehehe.

Lauren Michelle Major said...

That bouquet of flowers is so cute! I never thought of using a succulent! Succulents are pretty much the only plants I can keep alive for more than a few days, lol. Thanks for sharing! I can't wait to hear more about Soap & Glory and I really liked the nail colors you shared!

Rebeca Muñoz López said...

You start the spring and me autumn, although we are still having sunny days here, these polish colors are great for spring, here is also much used these colors Kim!

This is so cute. You are so good at photoshopping and editing! I love that bouquet, but arranged flowers always seem so overpriced. I am so happy I have found you and will be keeping up with your blog. I didn't realise how good Bloglovin' was for keeping up to date with new posts so I'll be on that regularly. Keep posting! :)

Heel in Mint said...

Love the bouquet and colors! Spring feels so good after the crazy long winter we have been through. Can't wait to refresh my closet and start some art projects. Have a magical Monday . :)

Congrats on getting on the Game of Thrones train. You should DEFINITELY watch because it's quite possibly the best show on TV. And yes, Jason Momoa is a gorgeous multicultural specimen. He is in season 1...only.
