Since this post may be a little long, I’m going to break it down into two sections so if you’re only interested in reading about one, you’ll save a lot of time! First I’m going to do a little life update on school, a recent job change, and blogging.
As you (probably) know, I studied floral design through Ashworth College for the past year or so and recently graduated with honors! I’m so excited to be done and be able to take another step towards my career. With that said, I used to work at a local wholesale florist and it was not my favorite job for a number of reasons that I won’t go into detail about. It was a great place for me to start and learn more about the industry, but I wouldn’t have even put it in my 5 year plan. I recently got the opportunity to work at a shop which is more of my speed and where I want to be anyway, so I didn’t think too much when it came down to leaving the wholesaler. It’s better for me in a number of ways and I also get to spend more time with Royce which is the biggest thing for me right now. I can work harder down the line when he gets into preschool and has a set schedule, but for now while he’s little I want to spend as much time as possible with him.
Now blogging is a little different, because while I do sharing little details about my life and my favorite fashion items, baby products, and more, I’m not sure this is what I want to do forever. As of this moment, my blog is going to be something that I take a little less serious and post when I want, what I want, and don’t stress over meeting huge deadlines with certain posts. While working from home all the time would be great, it’s not as glamorous as people may think it is and actually involves a lot dedicated time. I also don’t want Royce to remember his childhood as being home with me all the time but my face stuck staring at a computer or phone screen all day either.
Enjoy Flowers review time! I was lucky enough to try this subscription service and let me just say they did not disappoint. From someone who is around flowers often and I know what good quality is, Enjoy Flowers did an excellent job making sure the flowers I received were still beautiful, fresh, and ready to be gifted to someone else (or used in your own home)! With Mother’s Day coming up, I think this would be the perfect subscription service for Mom. How many times do you buy fresh flowers for yourself? Not often, right? But when you get fresh flowers, you’re always so happy and adore how beautiful they look placed in your home. Enjoy Flowers offers different styles of bouquets and arrangements and even wedding flower service for a great price!
I’ll be rounding up some of my favorite gifts for mom next week! What are your go-to gift ideas?
