Urban Stems

It’s almost Valentine’s Day, so in addition to purchasing lingerie from Natori, you need to buy flowers! And what is easier than purchasing flowers online / via iphone app with Urban Stems. The lucky ducks that live in the NYC and DC area have access to this brilliant company. Simple, beautiful, and straightforward. The bouquets cost $35 and are a beautiful arrangement of carefully selected flowers imported straight from farms in South America. A bonus: According to the company, the farms used are environmentally-friendly and operate with labor friendly policies for their employees and their families. 90% of the farmers are women. Curious to see the product before I sent it to a secret admirer (my child’s preschool teacher – she is my true love), I bought a bouquet for myself.

Yep, I made my OWN day by sending MYSELF a bouquet. And let me tell you, it made me happy.

$36.40 is not quite cheap for a bouquet, but it is not a Korean Deli carnation bouquet. Much nicer. The arrangement did not disappoint, truly a beautiful ensemble – colorful, bright, and it put a smile on my face (even though my heartfelt message to myself was blank).

When the bouquet is delivered, the delivery man snaps a picture of your actual bouquet and sends it to the person who arranged the delivery. Quite a nice touch — always curious to see what the bouquet looks like, and now you know! My actual bouquet in front of the apartment!
