Nicaragua Jewelry Project Bracelet

Value: $5-10?

Seeing this necklace really made me happy, 100% of the proceeds from these bracelets go towards helping the women who made them out of poverty. Now that’s sexy! It also made me feel a little more casual about this intimate subscription box which is great, it’s supposed to be fun!

Mad Mac Scoop-Neck Camisole

Value: $52.00

This camisole is so pretty and delicate! This set came with a matching thong and headband (see below) and I think this set is classy and sexy. All of Mad Mac’s products are made in the USA and the lace is very soft.

Mad Mac Low-rise Thong & Lace Headband

Value: $18.00 & $16.00

I love that this thong matches the cami, but it still has a separate pop of color that makes it fresh and fabulous. The headband can be worn by itself or with the other pieces. It doesn’t squeeze my head too hard like some headbands do, super comfy!

Luna White Chocolate Macadamia Bar (Sample Size) & Luna Chapstick in Vanilla Almond

Value: $4.00?

I love Luna Bar and I didn’t even know they made chapstick, the flavor sounds delicious 🙂 This is another thing that was nice to see in the box. Let’s face it… Chapped lips are not sexy!

Sliquid Lubricant in ‘H20’ & ‘Sea’

Value: $2.00

These lubricants are glycerin and paraben free, and are also vegan-friendly. I was a little surprised to see the title of one was Sea, it made me think of salt-water but maybe I’m just crazy! All Sliquid products are made in the USA.

Firming Body Bronzer by Booty Parlor

Value: $1.00

I think the name Booty Parlor is so cute and clever. This bronzer contains pheromones and is supposed to match any skin tone, I’ll be curious to try it! It has a light jasmine scent and is supposed to help firm your skin.

BCute Classic Discreet Massager

Value: $24.99

I would say this is mostly self-explanatory, but here’s a few facts: This massager is smooth, Hypo-allergenic, Latex free
and waterproof. BCute wants to help you try new things and be spontaneous!

Verdict: The estimated value of this box was $124, much higher than the cost. I felt really good after opening this box, it was tasteful and classy while still fulfilling all the expectations I would have of an adult subscription box. I think a lot of people are intimidated about trying a box like BlushBox but why not have a little fun and spice things up? This box made me feel feminine and sensual, not vulgar or uncomfortable.

Amoda Tea Subscription Review! July 2013

Hi everyone!

I have to start by saying I’m so sorry for going off of the radar for a few days! Some of you may have noticed my blog was unavailable, WordPress deactivated my blog due to a technical error but we finally got it solved and I’m back!

Today’s review is for Amoda Tea, a company that sends you a selection of handpicked, artisan teas from all around the world each month. If you’d like to see me open my Amoda Tea box, please watch the video below. Otherwise, scroll down to read my written review.

IMG_3886

After living in Europe for a year, I’ve really developed a taste for tea. I absolutely love trying new types and blends and I don’t think there is anything more relaxing or soothing than a good book, comfy chair, wiener dog on your lap and steaming cup of tea in your hand.

IMG_3887

The Box: Amoda Tea

The Cost: $15/month

The folks at Amoda Tea are literally traveling the world, sampling new teas and meeting new brewers. Each month, they feature a brewer and introduce you to 3 different kinds of tea, enough to make around 30 6-ounce cups. Needless to say, I was excited to try out this box.

IMG_3888

Poppy Fields

I was most excited about this tea because of its description and the fact that it is caffeine free. Don’t get me wrong, I love caffeine but I could definitely use a yummy tea that is going to relax me and not hype me up. And this tea is supposed to taste like jujubees…Yum!

IMG_3889

Lover’s Lane

This tea mixture looks absolutely lovely. The teas that Amoda Tea is sending you aren’t the little leafy powder stuff you get at the grocery store. These are real, fresh natural leaves, fruits and herbs; I could see the chunks of dried orange slices!

The Road to Hana

I love drinking white tea in the summer so I brewed this one up right away with ice. It was super refreshing and was a tiny bit tart which I loved, perfect for a hot summer’s day.

Verdict: To start with I really liked the cute but minimal packaging of Amoda Tea, not wasteful at all! The description of each of their teas makes it clear that a lot of time, thought and energy have gone in to selecting the perfect variety of teas for you. I love that each bag has brewing instructions as long as caffeine content, so you don’t have to worry about losing a slip with all of the information on it. If you’re anything like me, you’re picky about your tea and can’t just drink anything. That’s why I think Amoda Tea is a great idea if you are interested in discovering some new, high-quality tea but don’t want to buy full-size bags before you’ve tried it. I think this is a really neat box!

Chaussure Boite Subscription Review & Coupon Code! July 2013

Hey Everyone!

Can you believe it’s already August? As you have probably noticed, box month is not over yet! I decided to not cram all of the box reviews into July because I wanted to give each company my full time and attention and do a thorough review for you guys. Alas, box month shall be continuing until mid-August so keep reading!

Today’s review is for a company called Chaussure Boite, (french for shoe box, I like this box already!) who sends all sorts of style and fashion accessories to your box each month.

If you’d like to watch me open my Chaussure Boite box, watch the video below! Or, scroll down to read my written review.

IMG_3885

The Box: Chaussure Boite

The Cost: $35/month

Chaussure Boite‘s goal is to help support small business owners and make their dreams a reality. I really love when companies use their influence to discover new businesses and introduce them to a bigger audience. I was super excited to see what accessories would be included in my box!

IMG_3881

Necklace and Earring Set

Value: Approx $20.00

I wasn’t able to find this exact set in the Chaussure Boite Shop so I estimated the value based on the other pieces. This is a really darling set. I typically don’t wear matching earring and necklace combos and I love the fact that these are both statement pieces that would be darling on their own. The stones are a soft, clear pink color and I was happy to see that the necklace has an adjustable clasp.

IMG_3882

Here’s a closer look at these super cute earrings! These will look great with a smooth ponytail.

Handmade Clutch by A. Nicole Divine Designs

Value: $20.00

Again, I guessed on this value based on the quality of the materials and cuteness factor. A. Nicole handmakes her products to fit your exact request! I love the body color of this clutch, it’s a metallic gold but is almost matte so it doesn’t look tacky. I also really like how well the orange goes with the gold and the interior matches the handle fabric!

IMG_3884

Cute Socks

Value: $3.50

I don’t know where these socks came from but I love the pattern! I’m a sucker for cute socks and am always happy to add another pair to my collection. The colors are super vibrant and remind me of sailing.

Verdict: I’m really pleased with the items that I received in my July Chaussure Boite box! I do however, wish that they would have provided a bit more information about each of the products in the box. They are a new company so I’m sure they are still making changes as they grow. I think the mix of products is very diverse and everything that was included in my box was totally my style. I’d be interested to see what other businesses will be included in the future boxes!

Exciting Announcement! Introducing July Box-a-Day Review Month!

Hi everyone!

images(I decided that is me on top of the pile)

I’m thrilled to announce a project that I’ve been organizing for some time now. I’ve been putting together this feature for a while and am excited to finally be able to share it with you! Through my blogging adventures I have found that a lot of people would really like to subscribe to some type of monthly box (or 10) but are really overwhelmed by all of the types of boxes out there. That is why I have decided to host Box-a-Day Review month on my blog during the month of July. I’ve been working hard and reaching out to companies to see who would like to participate in this event and have had an amazing response! Here is how it will work:

Every day in July (yes I know I’m in for a lot of work 😉 ) I will review a new box on my blog. For each box, I will do an initial unboxing/first impression video on my YouTube channel (and will post it on my blog), followed by a more detailed written post of each item in the box! I really hope this can be a fun way to introduce you to the huge world of subscription boxes and help you to find one that is right for you (or entice you to add a few more to your monthly subscription routine). There will also be some giveaways going on during the month of July and many great coupon codes for those of you who decide you want to subscribe to a box..or three.

I can’t wait to host this event and look forward to sharing with you guys. I have a large variety of boxes to share with you all, so no matter what your interests are (Style, Beauty, Food, Coffee, Crafts, Animals) I am sure that you will find a box that intrigues you.

I’ll keep you all updated as July gets closer so STAY TUNED!

🙂
