20170712_181921

What can I say other than I’am completely satisfied with the products selected yet again! The theme was on point and well…I’ll just leave the link to my unboxing video right here WeAreOnyx Unboxing! I have yet to photographe each item but the video will do the items justice. For such a small box it sure packs a punch of goodness 😍

I just wanted to share with you what I just came across which was an Easter coupon for free shipping in an email for Kiwi Crate! (The coupon code is HOP17) If you have never checked out a post of mine about this subscription box well let tell you that it has hands on activities for different age groups and a specific themed box each month for each age group. I have enjoyed these in the past and believe that anyone who tries them will too! They currently have a large variety of current and past boxes and more like that book shown above that you can purchase outside of a subscription so enjoy! Talk to you guys later!

My First Ever LippieBox!

20170211_202127-1

*Sorry to those with pet peeves for grammatical errors (I read ya’ll comments 😌) BUT as some of you SHOULD know I do this as a hobby… and I do so very quickly at times without spell checking or anything before posting. I took the time to do so just now as I always come back to do when I have more time so smile. Forgive my initial excitement of just coming here and sharing regardless of how sleep deprieved I may be or what have you. If you knew me personally I think I would get a pass lol……now let’s get into it!*

Hey everyone! I wanted to drop in right quick with the newest subscription box I have tried! Today I received the LippieBox and was very happy I chose this box to try out! It is winter and the worst or most troublesome parts of my body are my hands that look and feel dry and my lips! So everything I receieved will be used and I dont have to worry about a shade or color that does not work for me as they are almost all colorless lippies lol. I just so happened to see the live by the owner last week where she showed what was available to customze your box if that was what you wanted. I did, so I chose 3 out of the 5 items you will see pictured below. I went with Bee’s Best Beeswax lip balm made in the USA, Cake Batter by Eclipse whose website I need to check out to see if wheter or not it was made here….but Im pretty sure it is was. And then the Bonne Bell Coca-Cola refresh tinted lip gloss. The two items chosen for me were the Valentines Lip Scrub by Magical Star along with their lip balm in Chocolate Raspberry! See pics below…

I like that the balms all have very simple ingredient lists and the cake batter one smells so delicious 😍 I have used the Lip Scrub that by the way offers a generous amount so thats awesome! Ah, and which has crushed up candy hearts within it! Then, I followed up with the cake batter balm because I just wanted to try that one first. It is very moisturizing and like I said before smells delicious. I will be back with an update on all the lippies in a week. As for now I’am content with my V Day gift to myself 😎

This hand cream smells so good! 😍 And I pretty much loved everything I recieved in this months bag. After my vacation from them this was a great start to another beautiful experience. I got a pink lippie (unlike what it looks like in its container) when at first I thought it would be a RED lippie I had hoped for by Tarte……but I will take it! I like the texture or consistency but not the applicator but hey we can’t win them all.

Ha! 😋

Again, this bag with 4 to 5 deluxe or full size samples of beauty products is $10.89 a month! You take a survey to recieve products geared to your likes! If you want to get the January bag just use my referral link and enjoy. (Ipsy!) Talk to ya’ll later, stay sweet ✌

Hey Guys and Gals!

20161101_164733

Hey everyone! It has been a while since my last post omg Im so sorry I kind of fell off there…😳 BUT IM BACK 😆 I recieved the “MyBestBox” for October 2016, the “Try The World”snack box and the “Loot Anime” box. I have to say I was disappointed in them all. I recorded my unboxings of them and didn’t even bother to upload to my youtube account. I’ll briefly discuss why I was let down. In regards to the MyBestBox which is suppose to be a lifestyle box I got the box for October that was clearly an ALL ABOUT THE FEET box. So the episom salt, gel soak, toeless socks, nail clipper set, foot cream, polish or nail conditioner, toe dividers and snack bar did not blow me away. But they were all useful so Im grateful for that. And believe I should have paid the extra bucks for the clearly exposed boxes other than this one they had to choose from I would have been happier with an variety of useful items without targeting one body part. Due to this I give them a 7 out of 10 with 10 being the best! Packaging, Presentation and the number of items made it worth your wild but I just had other expectations. If you want to see what kind of box you would recieve feel free to check out my prior posts with all their links and etc and enjoy! Sometimes the mystery, suspense and surprise is enough. And they are an box that targets lifestyle so Im sure now that an all about the feet box has been done things will be much more interesting!

Now onto the Try The World box that I recieved earlier today and left a comment on their facebook page regarding my dissapointment. Of course life is not perfect and etc and I did get to order my first box for $4 but that does not mean quality should be compromised! Why did 3 out of 5 of my snacks have a BEST BY 12/2016 DATE and it is a month away from 12/2016…I dont know but that really bothered me. Espeacially when one of them had no best buy date or expiration date at all…. yeeeaaaaa. *(Correction, it did and it was for 2017 so that was a relief!)* Im just going to say that the couple of treats we did eat both in the cookie category were delicious and Im just happy I did not pay $19 or more for this box or I would have been more bothered. Overall, I would recommend them if you don’t mind waiting an additional week or two for your box due to possible customs or whatever reason the box may be delayed. (Trust me I understand things happen but this was just not what I expected for my first box) Getting snacks a month away from being considered NOT so “fresh” or “best tasting” according to the best by date, or being unable to get in contact with someone from their customer care department (If they even really have one) Ah, and paying $19 plus shipping possibly. Im not sure there box every month would be worth it but the experience if the above was improved would make it worth it. Presentation of their box and the card with info of contents in box was a 10 in my book! (10 being the best) Overall, the box was a 7. (Mainly because I know few people would be bothered by the 30 days away from being considered unfresh date.)

Last but not least we have the Loot Anime box! I recieved an apron that will get used, a ramen bowl that has a ton of restrictions and a Manga…thats all I cared about. Everything else was irrelevant to me. I still wish they gave pins like the other boxes vs phone charms but what are you going to do?

Well….that was my brief update of my dissapointment with my October subscription boxes! I shall be back later to insert pics so make sure you check back!

Good Afternoon, is your “MyBestBox” on it’s way because mine is 😌

I cant wait! A lifestyle box for me and my Little one to try out as they sometimes have some very healthy edible goodies in their boxes or smoothie ingredients! Along with some non edible items that are practical/useful! If your interested then use my referral link to check them out My Best Box! You will also be receiving $5 off your first box if you choose to subscribe with my referral link! That takes care of the shipping fee for the most part so that you only pay the cost of the box which is $24.99 and some change. One dollar ($1) to be exact towards shipping. So not bad at all especially for the quality items I have seen others recieve in their boxes via Youtube unboxings.

Also, check out the Founder and her description of the company and more here via Good News Baltimore’s Youtube Channel My Best Box CEO and Founder

Talk to you guys later and thanks for stopping by 😙

My BoBo’s box has landed…literally!


20160921_190602

**Update**

***For whatever reason which would be theirs…the post I shared on their facebook page on Sept 21, 2016 of what I recieved and the youtube links to my unboxing was hidden. As a response I took it upon myself to delete the youtube unboxing videos I had up, unlike and unfollow their facebook page. And I do not plan to ever EVER ever ever ever subscribe to them again. You see, there are no posts from individuals who look like me and I find that odd as at least I posted something on the visitors post area and it was hidden by Sept 28 or after. There are posts by others that go back further than Sept 21. Now wheter they did not want someone like me sharing that I bought their box or they went to my page where I had shared info on issues plaguing the African American communities in this Country and then decided they did not want my posts to be seen on their fb page. Or if others felt that way I DO NOT know. BUT I find it very strange and therefore I shall not support them going forward. To those who look like them or whatever….knock yourself out and enjoy! I have experienced enough to know in 2016 that people’s true colors are showing at every corner.*** Here are some images/screenshots of what you cannot find on their fb page anymore. But you can find posts from Sept 19th and earlier up to this date. I’am extremely disappointed in them and this experience.

So hello to all my regular readers! I said my BoBo’s box landed…literally because I opened the door to go outside and it was there in the hallway which is better than it being outside but that was a first I have to say. Usually the door bell rings and I or another answers and comes back with a package. I dont know what the heck happened today but it arrived injury free and I loved everything inside. If you dont know what BoBo’s is just click the highlighted area to go directly to their site and learn more. I have talked about them in previous posts so you can also check those blog posts 0ut. I learned why everyone is always so pleased with their box as I was with mine. I did not check alot of boxes but I filled out alot of info on the written parts of their survey and they went by both. Im a happy camper. I have to say it was worth the wait in my opinion and I greatly appreaciate the note left on one of the Daria books I recieved. Their personal touches are very touching….well duh lol. You know what I mean. Well, when Im not as tired as I am right now I’ll take more pics and upload them so for now you can check out my Part 1 and Part 2 unboxings on youtube. Until next time ✌

Trying a new Subscription by Kiwi Crate!

Hello Kiwi Crate! I was on the fence about this particular crate because I do enjoy entering Teacher stores for activities to engage my little one in but wondered how he would react seeing as this would come in the mail and they would have his name printed somewhere for him. He gets random boxes as is right now and pretends he is doing unboxings with his existing toys so I believe like his excitement for the Eggdrop box he will be even more excited since its hands on crafts we can do together! He loves watching Cookie Swirl C on youtube (his favorite youtuber) as well as some others who do unboxings and record creative projects. His new favorite vocabulary word is “Customize”. Toddlers using technology coupled with your monitoring and interacting can be very educational! So, after I watched the famous blogger and youtuber The Subscription Box Mom on youtube unbox the July and August Koala Crate I got excited and said what the heck moments ago and after searching for a coupon code and finding one on Retailmenot.com I was able to get his first month box for $13.95. Next month it will cost me $19.99. I will definately update you guys on this box when we recieve it and complete the activities!  I selected the Koala crate for Ages 3-4. There are other age appropriate boxes! If you are like me….a teacher at heart then check them out for yourselves by watching some unboxings using the link above with The Subscription Box Mom. If you end up wanting to subscribe then use my link and enjoy since Im pretty sure you will be able to save a few dollars with this link Koala Crate from Kiwi Crate but if not go to that retailmenot link I shared above for a coupon code to get your first box 30% off! Heck, check that site out in general for coupon codes for when you are about to order anything online. I always do!

The teacher in me could not resist this box so here I’am talking about it at 8:38AM in the morning….. Anyway, I’ll be back soon to chat about some other subscription boxes and life…..URGH LIFE lol. It’s a blessing to wake up and see each day with your loved ones but then someone goes and says something stupid or something stupid happens and you think oh “good grief” I was having such a great day too! Life, well it wouldn’t be interesting if we didn’t have any stories to sit and talk about right? Talk to you guys later!

*Update*

We recieved the box yesterday!  And I did a very brief…sort of unboxing lol. I wanted to show you what to expect but will take pics of everything and place here for you in a couple of days before we put everything together. Check it out here Koala Crate Unboxing
