Though Mother’s Day is about a month away still, now’s the time to plan ahead.

To that end, ProFlowers has you covered with a variety of beautiful bouquets for every pricepoint.

ProFlowers Deluxe All the Frills Bouquet in Teal-Dipped Vase

I love that you can choose the type of vase you get the flowers in – which means you can customize it for your recipient.

proflowers-vase-choices-proflowers-review-chic-steals

(I mean, how cool is this pretty teal-dipped vase above??) Many other online florists only offer the vase as part of the arrangement, and you’re stuck with what they’ve chosen. Major point in ProFlowers’ favor!

proflowers-box-proflowers-review-chic-stealsYou can specify delivery date at no charge (not a range-the exact day itself, which is awesome!) to make sure your recipient will be available on the date of delivery. When the flowers arrive, they’re boxed up in their nifty box with the card/greeting inside. The larger flower heads are even carefully wrapped to ensure perfection upon arrival! proflowers-box-inside-proflowers-review-chic-stealsThere are not 1 but TWO packets of flower life extend powder in the box, as well as detailed instructions for caring for your bouquet. (Other online stores don’t include instructions – kind of a no-brainer, no?)wrapped-bouquet-shipping-proflowers-review-chic-steals

Once in water, the flowers have a 7-day freshness guarantee, and the two packets of powder allow you to really extend their life. Mine are still alive at 15 days out!

Shopswell = The Best Answer to Dynamic Shoppable Lists Ever!



Shopswell website review list screenshot
Shopswell is an easy, fun way to curate shoppable lists of products or wish lists around a certain theme – that update dynamically no matter what.

Unlike Pinterest, which is frozen in time from when the original Pinner pinned the product (for years!), on Shopswell you have the ability to integrate a product’s price so it updates on the image as the price changes. No broken links. No item not found errors. No clicking through and finding that the price is totally different from what you suspected. Lists of items that are actually shoppable – still. Christmas wish lists that are updated. Beautiful layouts that are embeddable in your blog, no plugins necessary. You can even watch videos and reviews in the interface to make an informed decision before buying anything. It’s really the best of all shopping worlds – come together in one website.

shopswell-tutorial-creating-list-1Shopswell is so easy to collect products around a certain theme. Register on Shopswell and then click on your profile photo on the top right and choose “My Lists.” From there it will bring up a list of all your Lists, along with a Create New option. shopswell-tutorial-creating-list-2
I chose to create a list based on Fall – and themed it around affordable fashion under $50 (because as we all know, that is totally my mantra over at Chic Steals). shopswell-tutorial-creating-list-3
Then it came time to add products to my list, which I did through just typing the name of the item into the search bar. When an item came up I liked, I chose to add it to my list – plus checked the “Track Price” checkbox so I would be notified if the price changed (so I could swoop in on a sale as it was happening!). shopswell-tutorial-creating-list-6
Then I chose the list I wanted it added to – and BOOM! It was added to my list, that simple. shopswell-tutorial-creating-list-4
I could also hit the plus sign to the right of the search bar and enter the URL of a product I’d found on a site on the internet. shopswell-tutorial-creating-list-5Shopswell pulled all the info about the product without me having to do anything else (no entering keywords, title etc. – thank goodness!)

shopswell-tutorial-creating-list-7
Within just a few minutes I had a cool, curated shopping list, that will live forever here – and I don’t have to do anything else for it! No commenting, no SEO’ing…no nothing. Awesomeness.

A review of the Shopswell website would be incomplete without mentioning that Shopswell’s monthly giveaway. The Shop.Share.Win Program gives away $10,000 every month (yup, you read that right) in rewards to the members who share and interact with other community members on the site. You earn credits by inviting other members to the site, creating helpful content, creating lists, and upvoting other members’ content. (Specific details on how to earn credits are here. The current leaderboard showing who’s earning the most credits this month is here.)

So what are you waiting for? Get in on the action and start putting together wishlists that will link to your picks permanently – embeddable, beautiful curated content.

Chic for the Week – 10

Chic for the Week: My shopping picks for Summer leaf print skirt outfitWelcome to another installment of Chic for the Week, where I share a couple shopping picks that I can’t stop thinking about.

Yes, it’s finally Summer, and temperatures are rising. Trending right now are leafy prints reminiscent of Hawaiian-style shirts, verdant jungles, and tropical climes. Infuse your wardrobe with pieces that work just as well as separates as all together in this fun Summer outfit:

1. Basketball Jones Ivory Mesh Crop Top, $34

Super-cute and a necessity this Summer, this top looks great with jeans or a sweeping midi skirt, and will keep you cool as temperatures climb.

2. Steve Madden Bsashaa Stripe Clutch, $58
Though the name’s a little funny to say (Bsashaa??) this pretty striped clutch is no joke when it comes to mixing and matching with a variety of prints. It can’t clash. That’s why you should have it, folks – because it will go with everything in the utmost style.

3. Japanese Banana Leaf Print Skirt, $19.65

Love this leafy print! The design is really unique, too – making this an utterly unforgettable skirt at a really, really good price.

4. ASOS Penny Pointed High Heelsicon, $57

Sultry and gorgeous, these will make your legs look a mile long. Pair with jeans that boast a frayed, cut hem for utter gorgeousness.

Steamy Summer date-night anyone?? 😉
