UMCheeky December 2013

14 Dec

I never have enough underwear so the obvious thing to do was look into a subscription service.  I never thought I’d find one wit a promo that gets locked in for life!  Unmentionabley Cheeky is normally $8 a month, with the promo FALL13 on scrubbing you lock in $6 a month!  That’s $6 a month to recieve2 pairs of underwear for life!

They aren’t thongs, but they aren’t granny panties either.  I’m not blown away but at this price I’m going to give them a few months.

Beats my usual Victoria’s Secret purchase price!

Lip Factory Novemer 2013

7 Dec

Lip Factory is a is an exclusive makeup subscription service to help you to explore the makeup brands that you have always wanted to try delivered to your door each month.  It’s $22 monthly and worth every penny.  They supposedly focus around lip products .

This month’s theme was actually “all about lips”- which I love.  I think they do this every 3 months?

Sorry I didn’t realize my pictures came out so dark!!

Palladio Herbal Lipgstick ($7) in I believe silver rose

I don’t usually opt for soft pink or shimmer so this is a happy new addition to my collection.

Image

Retractable Lip Brush ($3.88)

Still havent figured out how to open this- not that I know what it’s used for.

Image

Medusa’s Lip Gloss (Rumors) ($8)

This color scares me a little. Might pass it along to someone younger.

Image

MODELCo – Lip Couture Lipstick ($17) in Luella

Perfect Fall color I lack.. and I LOVE that the case has a built in mirror, how perfect?!?!  This seems pretty long lasting and moisturizing.  I’d say it’s my favorite item from this month’s box.

Image

Designer Skin – Fall Lip Shimmer  ($7.30)

After the spoilers I came across I was expecting a pink, not purple, but I order these to experiment so I will happily use this.  Not gonna lie I have no idea what color this was off the top of my head.  None of them on the site look like it.

Image

Medusa’s Makeup – Lipstick (Red Square) ($12)

I d already have a bright red but this packaging is pretty cool even if it doesn’t fit into my lipstick holder thingy.  Anyway, I checked out this brand- man it’s intense! And affordable 🙂

Image

As I predicted, it’s an amazing box.  Lip Factory clearly has an awesome value and I its 2 for 2 completely falling in love with at least one of the products.  Last month it was the blush and face mask, this month it’s MODELCo!

Taste Trunk- BBQ Trunk- November 2013

7 Dec

Taste Trunk is a monthly subscription box offering 5-10 products, discount coupons, backgrounds on the companies and amazing recipe ideas from one of four themes, including Gourmet, BBQ, Healthy and Sweet. Brands and items are hand selected and trunks are only $34.99/month!($29 + $5.99 shipping)

 

The package is heavy- you know for whatever psychological reasons we love that- and the packaging was pretty nifty.

The box came with recipes cards which were also packaged adorably.

Now for the goodies:::

 

Terrapin Ridge Smokey Onion Mustard $6.70

Unfortunately, I saw a spoiler in which this was actually brown sugar & pecan mustard flavor- which I was super excited about.  How often do you get to try that?!?!  But I guess it would of been more difficult to pair.  This will go great with a simple BBQ of hamburger and hotdogs. You win some, you loose some. Maybe I’ll still purchase it 🙂

JB’S BBQ Sauce Ancho Peach $5.99

I think a lot of people are interested in fruity flavors, but would never make that purchase themselves.  At least that’s how I am.  Can’t wait to try it with some pork chops!

Image

All Natural Susan’s Gourmet Pineapple and Ginger Teriyaki $2.50

I’m most excited about trying this one. Can’t really tell you why.  Yes, their is the fruity component I mentioned above… but I also just really like ginger and teriyaki.

 

 

Image

Chateau White Garlic Marinade $5.00

I’m Italian so I have enough garlic in my life- and this kind of looks like salad dressing.  But whatever, i may not be an experiment, but it is a safe bet.

 

Image

Two Snooty Chefs Herbs de Poulet Spice Blend $5.99

Simple, yet different. And what a cute name!

All and all the value of this box was a little on the low side, but for gifting purposes it was perfect with it’s black tissue paper, maroon ribbon, and recipe cards.  Plus these items are too unique for a weekly grocery store trip.  I will definitely purchase again!

ibbeautiful review

30 Nov

I have searched high and low for a subscription appropriate for my “young” 13 year old cousin and I have finally found it!

ibbeautiful is a monthly subscription available in “tween” or “teen.”  I ordered a one time box as a Christmas gift- the one time fee is $20 but if you subscribe it’s 18 a month.  $10 more if you want them to include a t-shirt.

Image

I have been getting really into scarves so maybe this is a sign that I can make her a mini me.

Ottilie & Lulu Body Glow Lotion trial size $3.50

A brand specifically for young girls is a cue idea.. it will help the transition into caring about things like lotion!  Image

Without opening this, I am going to guess it’s a bracelet.  I don’t know if she has any interest i owls- but I love them!  I think she will like this.

Image

Seeds of Happiness ($4)

I guess these little balls of clay are like the children’s version f us getting that key necklace in the next FabFitFun.

Image

e.l.f. shimme with brush ($2)

Not going to lie- I was a little concerned.  She is tom boyish with strict parents- what is she gonna do with makeup?  But I’m glad it’s nothing serious, just a shimmer, and from an affordable brand in case she decided to experiment.

This is a great box for young women, it’s filled with positivity, fun, and natural beauty.  I know I would of loved something like this growing up!  I have no idea what the prices of some items are but I’m going to assume the value isn’t anything crazy- but it’s worth the variety and introduction of products.  It’s a box of fun!

Bulu Box November 2013

23 Nov

Bulu Box is $10 monthly and it’s an awesome way to discover vitamin, supplement, health and weight loss products delivered straight to your door.

They have two options- Bulu Box or Bulu Box Weight Loss. They have a great point system as well.

This review is for the regular Bulu Box.

-MASHUPCONDITIONING.COM $25 off coupon code for any workout DVD and a free 8-minute yoga sprint workout youtube link lol

I love interval training but the DVDs run for about $50.. I don’t love it THAT much when I get classes free at my gym! I’ll check out the youtube video though!

-40% off all Vitagoods products

Image

-Www.ooberluxe.com Actually, a pretty adorable card- it’s in a pink envelope and the contents are for a month free off “I dable” membership package worth 5 requests. I have no idea what this means.

Menstrual Magic 3 soft gel pills $1.94

This could definitely come in handy 😛

Image

Yaff Bar Blueberry Crunch $3

This is supposed to give you natural energy. Hopefully it works (and tastes ok) because it would be great to come up with new quick breakfasts.

Image

Quest Bar in Cookie Dough $2

My favorite item in the box! I’ve heard amazing things, and I follow a Quest promoter on IG who I am absolutely obsessed with so I’m pretty excited to finally try this… and I’m glad I got this flavor!

Image

PreToxx 4 pills $2.67

A natural hangover pill!  I don’t know how these normally work, but this one is to be taken before drinking- definitely worth a try. I do have a wedding Sunday.

Image

Energems $2.99

They look like M&Ms.  I got excited when I saw only 45 calories- but apparently a serving size is only 3.  I read the description card before the boxx.. anyway I’m a chocolatolic.  Oh well, they are supposed to give you energy so this could be a good pick me up to keep in my work desk.

As many of you know, I’m not the biggest Bulu box fan and my subscription is officially up.  But honestly, I kind of liked this months…

POPSugar November 2013 + PROMO

9 Nov

Popsugar Must Have Box is a lifestyle subscription box filled with full size products sent to you monthly for $39.95.

1

Honestly, I do a lot of subscription box stalking, and Popsugar seems to be a favorite.  I never really felt the same awe others did but since this was my last chance to subscribe before the $5 price increase I gave it a chance.

I won’t physically be able to open it for awhile but my PopSugar Must Have November 2013 box is safely tucked away in my room awaiting my arrival.  Here is what this month is all about:

~Barefruit Crunch Sea Salt Caramel Apple Chips ($1) This is unique.  I dig it.
~Lands End Single Canvas Wine Tote ($19.50) Pretty sure this is useless to me, especially if it’s monogrammed and I can’t regift.
~The Soap and Paper Factory Shea Butter Soap ($8)  Ah, another expensive bar of soap.  I use body wash but this is useful for travel.
~Maison de Monaco Strawberry and Blackcurrant Cream Preserves ($6)  I’m excited to try this! I’ve been craving a cream cheese and jelly english muffin.
~Illume Candle (6.2 oz) ($15.75)  Pretty adorable and very festive.  I love candles but I just never buy them for myself.
~Absolute A! Nail Polish Remover in Spring Fresh (32 pads) ($1.99)  Useful for travel.  Chipped nails have been driving me nuts.
~Canvaspop Gift Card ($30)  Aw snap, I just ordered something from Picaboo with Groupon.  But I’m sure it’ll come in handy.
~Michael Stars Folk Art Wrap ($42) Eh, FabFitFun’s was cuter.

This box had an approximate value of $124 and I assume variations will exist. Well worth it if you are into these little goodies but I think I’m sticking to makeup and skin care.

If you do decide to try PopSugar, don’t forget to use PROMO Refer5 to save $5 off your next box.
