Bloomon Flower Delivery

It is no secret that my favourite weekend activity is visiting London’s most popular flower market on Columbia Road. I often dream of being a florist, surrounded by colourful plants and glorious scents. When Bloomon contacted me about a new flower delivery service I was instantly intrigued.

Bloomon Flowers

The company was started in Holland by three friends with a passion to deliver the freshest flowers from grower to the customer’s door. The Bloomon team pull together imaginative flower combinations to make unexpectedly beautiful bouquets. The concept was conceived in Amsterdam but has since spread to Berlin and London, supplying more and more of Europe with thoughtful floral arrangements.

The process is simple:

  1. Choose your size of bouquet, from small, medium and large.
  2. Choose how often… as a one off or every week.
  3. Organise delivery. Bloomon conveniently deliver day and night.

My elaborate bunch of flowers were delivered with a large glass vase and a sachet of plant food, and nicely trimmed and cleaned. They were quick and easy to arrange and thanks to the size (I received the large size) added life and colour to my sitting room instantly. Inspired by liquorice allsorts the arrangement had an inventive mix of flower varieties from soft-cupped coral peonies to unusual Celosia Argentea ‘Act Vida’ and Solidago. The rainbow of colours mimicked the retro sweet colour combinations.

The flowers lasted nearly three weeks, and when a couple of stems began to wilt I put the remaining flowers into a smaller vase. With such quirky bunches, Bloomon do all the thinking for you, so you just have to press send each week and your home will feel like summer even if the weather outside doesn’t agree!

SmartBuyGlasses – Floral Frames for Spring

As ever London seems to be teasing us with a taste of Spring. The blossom is out and the sun’s occasional appearance means there is an excuse to buy yourself a seasonal pair of sunglasses and a new bikini. SmartBuyGlasses are my go to website for the cheapest designer glasses and contact lenses, and this year they are showcasing a range of pretty floral frames to get you in the mood for warmer weather.

With over 30,000 pairs of designer sunglasses to choose from there are styles to suit all, and with their shopping guides and Virtual Try On feature, SmartBuyGlasses help you find the right pair quicker than any other site. I love the unique collections from Woodys Barcelona, Matsuda and Adidas Originals, as well as classics from Ray-Ban, Prada and Tom Ford. 

These sophisticated Dolce & Gabbana frames have a lovely light pattern that will look great with a tan. The feminine shape will compliment a pretty Springtime look, and the good quality frames will outlast the sunshine.

Maui Jim Silk Orginals

Make your sunglasses more effective than ever with the SmartBuyGlasses prescription lenses, which are anti-scratch, anti-reflective and UV protective. Or if you prefer, wear contacts with the normal lenses to give you versatility in temperamental weather. I love these Maui Jim Silk frames with floral arms, great for men or women.

For a sportier look, go for a pair of Adidas Originals with wacky tropical floral design. These casual frames will look great for a game of volleyball on the beach or for sundowners in the city. Priced at just £81.95 on SmartBuyGlasses, they are as affordable as they are chic.

Hot on the Highstreet Week 253

I always want to send flowers without the hassle of worrying if the recipient is at home to receive them. So I instantly loved the concept of Bloom and Wild, which cleverly packages up flowers so they can fit safely through the letterbox.

This young company have made the order process very easy, it takes a few minutes to order online. There is always the choice of three bouquets which cost between £20-24, including delivery.

I was the happy receiver of a bunch of Rosalind roses, and have also sent a bunch of roses to family and have found the service is efficient and reliable. Each bud was individually wrapped to ensure freshness and condition, and the bouquet lasted well over two weeks, brightening up my bedroom.

The website will allow you to either send a one-off bouquet or choose a monthly gift subscription, when a different seasonal bunch will be sent each month.

Make sure you order your bouquets two days in advance to ensure the bunch of bright buds arrive in time. The nicest surprise you could ever wish to receive through the letterbox…
