Honest Mum

I’ve got a special bond with flower delivery brand, Bloom & Wild having bought beautiful bouquets from them for several years and also finding myself the lucky recipient of their blooms too, most notably when I underwent a thyroid operation last summer.

..In fact, the blog post I shared about that period, which took 5 months post-op to write, was illustrated with glorious Bloom & Wild flowers I was sent by a good friend.

Bloom & Wild

During one of the hardest times of my life, I distinctly remember how buoyed up those many bunches of Bloom & Wild flowers, and plants from thoughtful pals, relatives and colleagues too made me feel.

The bouquets received through my letterbox, in all their vibrancy, and succulents too in small tubs, cheered me up no end. Our flat appeared to transform into a florists in those early weeks and months post-op, at a time I could barely swallow, and even a short walk outdoors felt like a mission.

Those scented florals, pristine (packed by hand) and exquisite to boot, brought the outside in for me and touched my heart. Soppy but true.

The cards, flowers, gifts and kindness frankly pieced me back together again, emotionally and physically, and remembering the happiness those flowers brought me is why I feel so honoured to have my own Honest Mum Edit on Bloom & Wild’s site in celebration of Mother’s Day, this year.

There have been several moments in my career that have felt quite significant: blogs posts on mental health and body image going viral and helping many, a book deal with MUMBOSS and seeing my kids look proudly on, as I signed copies on launch day as well as collaborating with Jamie Oliver, interviewing Westlife, speaking in Parliament, bringing out my own bag, and now, working with Bloom & Wild.

And just look at my gifted flowers! A garden in a vase!

Honest Mum x Bloom & Wild

These aromatic blooms priced at £42 in my favourite magenta shades are fittingly named The Scented Garden and boy, do they smell divine.

Designed by the eminent Nikki Tibbles Wild at Heart (her flowers adorn Kensington Palace), this majestic beauty bunch will perfume your home (and dazzle your Insta feed) with its farm-fresh stocks and pretty, preserved lavender. Long-lasting stems like waxflower, trachelium and eucalyptus help make it a statement bouquet any mum would fall for this Mother’s Day (and, any day).

Bloom & Wild are perfect for all occasions: birthdays, christenings, a new home, baby, Thinking of You bunches, Thank yous, weddings and just because. The gift of flowers are a wonderful gesture of self-care too, and I’m going to start a subscription to treat myself monthly. My Mum always say it’s flowers, plants and art that makes a home and I couldn’t agree more.

What I love about Bloom & Wild is how easy it is to order with them. A user-friendly site makes ordering quick with deliveries hand-packed in a box that fits through your letterbox (making it easy for the recipient as there’s no need to wait in) and arranging the flowers is a joy. Inside the beautifully presented box is a care card for those wanting a helping hand in arranging and caring for your flowers.

Wow!

    The HARPER is gorgeous and roses are very special to us, as my grandparents’ garden was full of them and it brings back many happy memories. Plus my grandmother’s maiden name was Rose. They are the only flowers my ex-bf wouldn’t buy me (he used to buy me some every Wednesday for some reason) as he knew they were my favourites (dumped him for various other things lol).
