Teleflora Delivers Fresh Flowers For Valentine Day & Big Giveaway

22 Jan

Teleflora invited bloggers to a special Valentine’s Day Tea at Soho’s Crosby Street Hotel. We were there to get an exclusive preview to Teleflora’s new Valentine’s Day floral lineup and Teleflora announced their Love Note Concierge campaign with a special love note writing session from special guest, Hannah Brencher. Hannah leads the global initiative, The World Needs More Love Letters and encourages strangers to exchange love letters in attempt to spread love, kindness, and happiness in an age that is run by all things digital. Hannah has been featured on TEDtalk, Huffington Post, and many more with her heartwarming story. 

There’s nothing like waking up or walking into a room filled with fresh flowers. It can be for any occasion. Teleflora flower arrangements are so beautiful I just want to order every month. The collectible vases, mugs, pitchers, etc are a great keepsake and even when the flowers are finished they can be used for other uses. Check out the ‘Flowers in a Gift” collection and look for the symbol when ordering. 

 I’m so glad Teleflora started their Love Note Concierge campaign (February 3-12). When I receive flowers it’s great to have a handwritten note along with it. Step away from technology and take time to write from the heart. It doesn’t have to rhyme or fill up a whole page it’s just you expressing your feelings. I’ve always loved writing love notes, or just writing in general and I also love writing in calligraphy a skill I learned in high school. It looks very pretty on paper and the recipient can see I put a lot into it. 

With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching (February 14), its time to check out now and see the gorgeous collection. Same day delivery and next day delivery available.  


Passionate Purple Tulips

  Full Of Love Bouquet

The teenagers are amazing designers and are mentored by none other than the incredible Tim Gunn. Every week is exciting and nerve wracking because you await to see the new creations made but you never want to see anyone voted off. 

I’m not a designer but my father did teach me how iron to the point it look like I took my clothes to the dry cleaners for the professionals to do. He showed me how to iron everything from dress shirts to curtains, handkerchiefs and showed me how to crease to perfection. I’ve always enjoyed ironing and will wake up at 4 a.m. to start ironing for me and the kids. Rowenta itons have always been part of my ironing experience because their irons are amazing. The steam force technology is the best. Rowenta even made a Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Limited Edition iron. Now Project Runway Junior gets a limited edition iron as well. The kids on Project Runway Junior got it good. Have you seen this iron? I would love to have this iron. 

Rowenta, the leading manufacturer of high-performance steam irons, garment steamers and steam stations, announces its upcoming appearance on the premiere season of Lifetime’s fashion reality series, “Project Runway Junior.” Hosted by fashion icon and Emmy Award® winner Tim Gunn and supermodel Hannah Davis, “Project Runway Junior” is a direct spin-off of the original series, “Project Runway,” of which Rowenta has been a frequent sponsor. This will be the first time the garment care brand will host a specific challenge​

During Episode: 08 “Make a Statement,” airing on Thursday, January 21, 2016, at 9pm ET/PT, show contestants will use Rowenta’s limited edition “Project Runway” irons to execute innovative, personalized designs and take their creativity to the next level. Rowenta’s “Project Runway” iron combines unparalleled heat and steam with a superior soleplate, creating a better glide for easier use. During the episode, Rowenta’s Marketing Director, Scott Pollard will introduce the challenge to the remaining contestants alongside host, Tim Gunn.  

Rowenta has always been a leader and an innovator in the garment care industry and they are proud to support the budding designers of the fashion world.

As an added bonus for show fans, Rowenta will host a #ProjectRowenta product giveaway on their Facebook ( and Twitter (@RowentaUSA) pages from January 19 – 22, 2016.

Quaker 100th Canister Anniversary Kit and Giveaway

25 Nov

One-hundred years ago, Quaker proved that it’s hip not to be square with the introduction of the now-iconic round Quaker Oats package. A first in the industry, it was just one of many moments in Quaker’s long-standing history of innovation. While the packaging design has since been updated, the round canister can still be found on store shelves today, helping The Quaker Oats Company, a subsidiary of PepsiCo, Inc., deliver more than 350 million pounds of oatmeal and inspire countless cooking and baking oat-casions for consumers each year.
Throughout its 138-year history, Quaker has enjoyed many additional firsts. In 1891, Quaker was the first to feature a recipe on packaging – Oatmeal Bread – and in 1908, introduced the first cookie recipe on a package – Oat Cakes3. Today’s Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies recipe remains a consumer favorite, celebrating 20 years on the canister in 2015. For those seeking additional recipe inspiration for the upcoming holiday season, Quaker’s online recipe database features oat-spired recipes for all occasions, including festive treats such as Oatmeal Gingerbread Cookies, Christmas Granola and Holiday Cookie Surprises. Bonus: the Quaker Oats canister makes a great vessel for cookie gifting!
As the brand has evolved, so too have consumers’ oat-consumption habits. In 1922, the company introduced Quaker Quick Oats, one of America’s first convenience products, and also a common swap for Quaker Old Fashioned Oats in baking recipes. 

In 1966, Quaker Instant Oatmeal debuted to help people keep pace with a busy, on-the-go lifestyle. Quaker Instant Oatmeal expanded from pouches to cup packaging in 2000, making portable eating even easier. In 2015, Quaker’s Quick 3-Minute Steel Cut Oats lineup launched – cutting the traditional cooking time of 30 minutes to three minutes – while providing a hearty texture and rich, nutty taste that consumers craved. That hearty taste and texture make Quaker Steel Cut Oats perfect for savory recipes that add a fresh, festive spin to the holiday dinner table, such as Cranberry Apple and Pecan Oat Salad or Steel Cut Oatmeal with Sweet Corn, Tomato & Pancetta.

For more information about Quaker’s latest innovations and recipe ideas, visit, or follow the brand on Twitter @Quaker.


Quaker was kind enough to give one of my readers a Quaker 100th Canister Anniversary Kit which includes: 

Heart-Shaped Measuring Spoons – to help add a little love to your holiday baking

· Red Oven Mitt – always handy to have for baking!

· “Baked with love” Baking Tags – the perfect way to package up holiday treats for your friends and family

· Vintage Style Treat Boxes – to make a complete gift package with your baking tags
