Each month Dottiebox sends you a variety of indie, handmade products from small businesses all around the U.S.!


The Box: Dottiebox

This bath salt smells so incredible and I was so happy to see that the lavender oil is from France 🙂 All of the ingredients are natural so I can feel good about using it!

Live Beautifully All Natural Lip Balm in Barreled Cola

I haven’t tried this yet but I can’t wait to see if it tastes like real cola! I was amazed and thrilled to see this short list of ingredients: Certified Organic Self Emulsifying Wax, Beeswax, Avocado Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, Essential Oils & Natural Scent Oils

Herbal Facial Care Detox Mask by Herbolution

Value: $2.50

I love that you can mix this mask with just about anything: Aloe, honey, herbal tea, yogurt! I don’t use masks often but I want to give this one a try as it’s supposed to be great for detoxing your skin and clearing out impurities.



Aqua Blossom Body Polish in Lavender Mint

Value: $5.00

I thought it was so cute that this came with a little spatula! This scrub smells absolutely heavenly and was immediately claimed by my lovely mom. I’ll be sure to ask her how it is.

Hello Greeting Card from Katievaz

Value: $4.00

This gal has some adorable cards on her website, be sure to check it out! I love just because cards so I was happy to see this in the box.

Verdict: The value of this box was $22.50. I love that Dottiebox seems to have an unspoken theme each month. I was really happy to see all of these amazing spa products and that they are all natural. I love Etsy but tend to get overwhelmed by all of the sellers on the site so it’s great that Dottiebox is doing the work for you and finding the best of the best!

MiaTempo Subscription Review & Giveaway!

Happy Monday my lovely readers!

Today I have a very exciting review for you guys AND another giveaway!

This is my review of MiaTempo, an all natural, organic spa and beauty box designed to give women a little ‘me time’ each month. If you’d like to watch me open my box click play on the video below. Or, scroll down to read my written review!


After reading about this box, and chatting with the founder Christina, I was so excited to receive my box for review! Whenever possible, MiaTempo includes skin care and beauty products that are made in the USA.  Christina acknowledged that are some great products that are made outside of the U.S. but she believes in trying to support local products and the jobs they help create whenever possible.

Another aspect of MiaTempo that really inspired me is the fact that every month, a portion of their proceeds are donated to charitable cause that coincides with our mission of empowering and inspiring women.  Since the launch of MiaTempo, they have helped to support Dress for Success, Breast Cancer Connections, Abby’s Closet, Vital Voices and Girls Inc.  Here is a quote from Christina: “We do this because I’ve been able to make it through some challenging times in my life thanks to the thoughtfulness, assistance and the charity of others, and I want to be able to give back what I can to help women everywhere.” How great is that?


The Box: MiaTempo

The Cost: $39.95/month (prices go down if you subscribe to multiple months at one time)


Green Way Small Hot Dot Tote Bag

Value: $8.00?

This bag is super cute and perfect for a trip to the beach. I love the little pocket on the front and also the fact that it zips shut so I can keep from getting crunchies inside 🙂


Rinse Co Café Mocha Powdered Mask

Value: $10.95

This mask is so neat! I’ve never heard of this Rinse brand, but I’ve already been converted. This mask is full of antioxidants & is slightly caffeinated. It helps “perk-up, de-puff and brighten your skin while helping your moisturizers & serums to penetrate faster & work better.” I thought it was so cool that you can add yogurt, honey, milk or anything creamy to mix this mask up!


Margarita Pucker Stick

Value: $4.00

So when they say Margarita, they mean margarita. My mom snagged this immediately and put some on. She said it was smooth and tasted exactly like a delicious margarita. Fun!


Del Sol Sunless Tanner

Value: $13.39

I’m not a huge Sunless Tanner fan simply because I’m always afraid about looking streaky or orange. However, I looked up some reviews for this product and people are raving about it. So for the sake of branching out, I think I might give this a try.


Ginger Lemongrass Body Spread

Value: $10.95

This spread smells SO yummy! It spreads on thick but quickly soaks in and the scent lingers which I love. This is a big jar and a little of this lotion goes a long way so I think this will last me for quite a while!

Verdict: The value of this box is just under $50.00. What a great value! Not to mention the fact that some of the proceeds are donated to a great cause. I think this box would be a fantastic gift for someone special or yourself. I think MiaTempo may just be on my must-have list. I can’t wait to use these products!
