Hey guys, you should already know my bias for this monthly subscription service. If you dont that means your new to my blog and I want to say welcome and check out their page so you and your family can recieve a box of goodies every month for $19.99! Here’s my referral link Degustabox!(I get points towards a free box if you use it but you don’t have to!) Now on to the contents of this December 2016 box with photos gallore 😊
I will just tell you in writing just in case it is to hard to see the rest. A huge bag of Butter Popcorn by Wise, Smuckers Fruit and Honey spread in Strawberry Jalopeno 😍, Urbane Grain 3 minute meal, A box of GOOD THiNS, A box of Ricola Lozenges 😍, Kala Beautiful Beans in Simply Peppered and Honey Acres Honey Straws!
Just an awesome box!!! Every month Im pleased with the items I recieve from them and they have great customer service. I missed last months box then encoutered an issue with my account and they fixed it and sent me three snacks from last months box I have not listed. They are 2 Nib Mor bars in the flavors Dark Chocolate with Blueberry and the other with Cherry. The third item is Oloves Basil & Garlic pitted olives! Much appreaciated 😊 (p.s. everything has an expiration date in 2017)
I will share my LO’s Koala Crate for the month of November next post! Until then stay cute/Kawaii Later ✌
Hey everyone! I have been feeling under the weather and busy being the great mom that I’am (pat on back). But, I wanted to stop and chat since I happen to be up this morning sipping on tea. I want to share how I wont be subscribing to many boxes in the future. I have been rather bored and/or dissapointed by many these past few months and when watching others do unboxings on youtube I sense they feel the same way but hey they are getting the boxes for free or getting paid to do the unboxing videos. I dont fall in those categories (referral link points towards free boxes do help but are not consistent for me anyway) and Im not hating on them but I have just decided for myself what I like much more. Mystery unboxings that are sometimes worth my wild or me growing my cook book portfolio which is just a hobby now but one which serves many purposes now and will in the future if I choose to publish it. I love cooking, baking and taking photos of my finished work. I love the look on my LO’s face when he gets his plate or comes running into the kitchen asking to help me prepare a meal. Because of this the only subscription I will keep for sure is the Degustaboxus! I absolutely love this Food subscription box that is worth your $19.99 every month and I have expressed such in prior blog posts. I have also shared the link to my youtube unboxing vids so if you want to check those out take a look at my prior blog posts. I also will keep the Koala Crate by Kiwi Crate for sure! The teacher in me just loves this!
On another subject but related to mystery boxes, I use the influenster app where all you do is discover new items/products that others review and talk about or review the items you yourself have used. In addition you may or may not recieve a vox box (mystery box) featuring a product or two for you to try and review on their app. And this month as every month there are objectives/Campaigns. This month speacial attention is being given to Mens Health! The name for theme is Movember! If you click on the highlighted above (mens health) you will be able to check out the app influenster! By participating in sharing or posting according to the rules of the campaign you may qualify to recieve a mystery box. I have recieved samples of Tresemme shampoo and conditoner….not sure if I posted about that here but I loved the product! I and many others hope to receive a actual vox box so I try to increase my chances by sharing the link which I have done above!
What else can I share….hmmmm…..ah I may give that Try the World box another chance at impressing me merely because I’am a foodie! And before I started this blog I had subscribed to a box called The Nature Box and may resubscribe to them for healthy snacks for my LO. Okay, well it was nice chatting with you guys. Until next time….✌
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!
Hey, what’s up guys! So, if you have been following my posts you should know that Im a foodie….. I think so at least lol. So as I scrolled facebook and came across this snack box subscription ad of $4 for your first box (which for the 4 or 5 snack box costs $19) I could not resist! And of course they gave me a referral link to share that gives you the box for the same price or free! Link here Try the world!
I watched a few youtube unboxings where others unboxed a variety of their boxes and there are different types of boxes from a different country every month! Sounded like Universal Yums but better because if you like to cook they have a box for that with herbs, sauces and dried rice and etc from that months Country! So if you are interested just check it out and do tell me if you gave it a try or not. Also, tell me if you tried their snack box (which size) or the one for those who like to cook box! Of course I’ll be back to review my first box from them when it arrives! (Try the world)
Now onto a different topic but goodie, if you shop Avon they have some great gifts for those who spend $60 or more right now. Just use code VIPSET when you are done shopping to have the below pictured added to your cart as a thank you! And I hope your shopping with me at my Avon e-store! Until next post….✌
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 😙
I will just share the upload of the activity we completed so far for you guys to check out right here Hobby Horse Activity! Tommorow we will do another and Im looking forward to October’s Crate! For more info check their site right here using my referral link Kiwicrate! If you want you can also read my first blog post from some weeks ago about them and the various boxes for different age groups. The Koala Crate is for ages 3-4! “I’ll be back” ✌
Soooooooo… in the last week the US citizens have seen on live TV or via the internet
1.Guns planted on a dead African American male that resulted in them saying those were gloves that appeared and not the gun(s) they claimed he had. And of course the officers said that they “feared for their lives” when they clearly outnumbered the unarmed victim. The discovery of the planted guns or “gloves” was shown in a slow motion replay of the LIVE CNN BROADCAST. You see the body on ground and officers watching the camera man so when the recorder panned away BOOM just like that guns MAGICALLY APPEARED ON THE GROUND! Link right here!
2.A video said to be of an NYPD cop beating and raping a young African American girl in a holding cell that hours later showed up on the web as an incident that took place in South Africa (saw these sources as weak but this is an issue in South Africa in general) which if you didn’t know was the new America as the lands are beautiful so Europeans and wealthy white Americans have moved there and white washed it to the point that Native (Decendants/Of color) South African girls had to protest not to long ago to WEAR THEIR GOD GIVEN NATURAL HAIR TO SCHOOL…. IN THEIR NATIVE LANDS which are now being occupied/controlled and run by large amounts of outsiders who clearly have no love, appreacition or respect for the original INHABITANTS of South Africa or ones image that is distinct to their DNA aside from their own #BottomLine. Cop raping teen (NYPD or South African, either way this is sick )
*AND NOW THE VIDEO WAS BANNED BY INSTAGRAM BUT I TOOK SCREEN SHOTS. I couldn’t or wouldn’t download it rather* Im sure you can find it somewhere on Youtube or etc. Millions saw this video in the last two days who would have saved it.
He punches her to knock her out and…..
3.Countless sports teams taking a knee when the first innocent lines of our otherwise racist National Anthem song begins. The lyrics are now globally known and no one can dispute the fact that it is not fitting nor has it ever been for a so called “Melting Pot” of a Country. Which thanks to technology in everyones hands we and the world are able to see how those in Authority really feel hence the action by athletes to take a knee since when it comes to people of color ESPECIALLY it would appear those who are suppose to be seen as protectors are now seen as lynch mobs they ought to fear and never call on.
4.Governers caught in their Ku Klux Klan robs and an US rep for North Carolina saying things like “The Protestors in Charlotte hate white people because they are successful and they’re not” If you have been paying attention to real news and not the Govt run media you caught that. And then the mainstream media may have mentioned it and his fake apology.
You know I just want to wake up and the Aura feel like it did in 1995….the energy and current climate of our Country is disturbing and it is the same eleswhere. I couldn’t avoid mentioning the crimes being committed and allowed or welcomed by our our “Government” which makes everyone see that the motives of the elected are not for the general publics best interest nor has it ever been. When everyday the media backs those with a badge as if they are not people with their own minds and bias we see very clearly what is going on. I say this is hell on earth and you make each day something different with whom you spend your days with and where you go and dont go. I understand that those who see whites taken into custody who have guns out and all cannot understand how it could NOT be the dead black mans/womans fault. But that is a delusional and blind way of thinking, if you are awake and know the history of all people and in particularly this Country you would get it. If you consider yourself a Human being you would want justice and senseless killing to end. I hear all the time this is all to create a race war but for those of color or aboriginal decent there has been an race war since Columbus and the men from prison (thieves, rapists, killers, pedophiles) the Queen gave him to find new lands ended up here in America and all the other places. Though without such crimes being committed by Law Enforcement and others that we KNOW OF you wouldn’t know how much we have never changed. History is repeating and we have a first row seat to witness the blatant cover ups and deceit shown by those in positions of power.
I’ll try to put myself in a happy place as if we dont live in a #sicksadworld. I do know some good people. People who want others to have food, clothes and shelter. An education, their parents ALIVE and a clean safe neighborhood no matter the color of their skin or personal beliefs. Im thankful for those real Human Beings that I do know. Im thankful for the little things that make my day. Im hopeful despite it all.
***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 ✌
