  • New Box Alert| Artemis Box Subscription Review + Unboxing | October 2017
    Artemis Box is a brand new monthly subscription box that sends you a themed assortment of comforting supplies for your "time of the month" and has a focus on women's health. Subscriptions are available for pre-order for $17.99 (or less if you prepay)*product was received free for reviewCheck out the unboxy box videoHere's the Box BreakdownOur first glimpse inside the Artemis Box SubscriptionEverything that we received in our Artemis Box. There is so much included in this box! And because it's Breast Cancer Awareness month this box includes an item that reminds us to check ourselves for breast cancer (1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime)So what is all this stuff?Our box insert that details this month's theme as well as each item that we receivedGreen Tea Choco-PieThis choco-pie was green tea flavored and made us extremely happy! We'd never tried one before and relish the opportunity to try anything with green tea in it!This was yummy! You can see the green in the center of the choco-pie!Always Ultra Thin Overnight PadsWe received 5 of the Always Overnight Pads with wings. This is just one of the 3 different items we received in the way of feminine careBigelow Tea Seasonal SelectionWe received 3 packets of the seasonal flavors that Bigelow Tea offers. We love these around this time of year. The Pumpkin Spice as well as the Salted Caramel tea are caffeinated while the Apple Cider is not!Bigelow TeaWhat a variety of tea! We also received a packet of English Breakfast as well as Raspberry Royale tea both of which are also caffeinatedMini ChurrosThese mini churros are Spanish Styled but part of a huge Korean trend. The cinnamon and honey flavor will quench your period cravings. This was a huge bag and we ended up sharing this with the kiddos (they didn't really give us a choice)Tampax PearlAnother one of the feminine care products that we received were these five regular Tampax Pearl tampons. Stress BallThis boobie stress ball is intended to remind us of our annual exams and regular self checks. It's a silly little visual reminder that could change your life!Our husband thought this was a hoot!Summer's Eve Feminine WipesIn our pampering products we received 2 of the Summer's Eve individually wrapped cleansing cloths in the Sheer Floral scent. These are great to keep in your desk or car!Always PantilinersWe received 10 Always Thin Daily Pantiliners as our 3rd feminine care inclusion in the Artemis Box.  We were truly surprised with how many we receivedHello PandaWe received a sample size of the Hello Panda Chocolate Filled Cream Cookies. We love these and the chocolate inside is THE BEST! We had to fight the kids for these and ended up sharing them anyway!Tony Moly I'm Real Sheet MaskAnd because they wanted to capture our hearts the sent a Tony Moly Makgeoli Purifying Sheet Mask! You guys know how much we love skin care... so yahoo for this!BodiHeat Pain Relief PatchesWe received 2 Beyond BodiHeat pain relieving patches to soothe our achy muscles during the time we need it most. These last 12 hours so you can be sure this will help you all day long!AdvilWe received 2 packets of Advil as well to help us through. We actually are really glad that we received Advil as opposed to Midol - it's much more multi-purpose!Ghiardelli Chocolate SquaresWe receive 5 - YES 5 of these delicious dark chocolate and raspberry filled chocolate squares. These are one of our personal favorites, yummy!So in summaryWe look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Artemis Box may be new but it's definitely filling a much needed void we've been feeling in the way of period subscriptions lately. We love their stance on women's health and their free wheeling ways of getting their point across! The presentation is great, everything arrives perfectly. The quality is awesome. We love the brand name snacks and feminine care products. And curation is superb. Everything is grouped into either an essential, munchie or pampering category and they really send an amazing assortment! Not to mention the monthly themes are awesome! We can't wait to see what Artemis does in the future!Check Out Artemis Box

  • New Box Alert | Kids Busy Bag Subscription Box Review | October 2017
    *I received these in exchange for my review*Kids Busy Bag is a monthly Subscription that sends books, coloring items, small crafts and small toys. The idea behind this is that so many children today are always on phones computers, and video games so this helps kids put down the techie stuff and have fun without batteries which I think is amazing. For $19.98 a month you will get 4-5 items to keep those kiddos busy. They sent me 2 bags one for each of my younger kids, so I could give you all an idea of the items in each of the boys & girls bags. So lets check them out.They sent me 2 of these cute little Halloween treat bags they are both the same they include 1 pencil, 1 pack of spooky stickers, an eraser topper, and 2 foam craft cat & owl kits to build. I think that they send special holiday bags like Halloween, Birthday, Christmas, ect. How sweet is that.$19.99We also got this super awesome Can you see what I see? Bingo Link game. This is a combination of 4 uniquely shaped boards with 61 objects from Walter Wick's collection. This is an endless repeatable game for players of all ages. Players take turns calling out objects and marking off the spaces be the first to link two sides together and BINGO!  I have not opened this yet but I am very happy to have gotten this it will make a great gift for the kids and seems like a fun game for us parents to play with them bye-bye candy land.Boy's BagThis is the complete bag I got for my son age 5. These are so cool, at first I thought that his name was a sticker but...No! its ironed on. Now that is cool I was really impressed because someone had to manually iron this on the bags. But the personalized bag for each child is sure to make them feel special.$1.99Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Play Pack. This to-go resealable pack includes crayons, stickers, mini velvet poster and a coloring book.$9.99Paw Patrol Collector's Tin This adorable tin includes 2 activity books, 1 coloring book, 1 double sided poster, 50 stickers, and 4 felt tip pens. This tin has everything to (hopefully) keep your child busy for hours. I think its great for the car if you have a lap table that they can use it on or to take to a babysitters or Grandparents house.$4.95Transformers Wallet I am so happy about this because recently I found that my son had taken all the loose change in the house that he finds and stashes it in a bowl in my closet, which is also his "secret hideout" so now he will have a proper place to put his stolen money.This wallet has a zipper and an adjustable strap on the back. And come on who doesn't love Bumblebee.Girl's BagThis is the bag for my daughter age 11 and it has the same nicely ironed on name.$15.00My little Pony Crystal Masterpiece this is like paint by numbers but instead of painting you put the beautiful crystal stickers in the numbered spots instead. I imagine that this will look really pretty when Its all done.$1.99Hello Kitty Play Pack this is like the same as the TMNT one except its Hello Kitty. It has a mini velvet poster, crayons, holographic stickers, and a coloring book.$4.50Glow in the dark bracelet kit this kit makes 1 bracelet and 1 key chain. The bag is resealable which is really nice to take place or to store the rest if you've only made 1 of the items. My daughter will love this.$9.99Smart Girl's Guide to Starting Middle School by American Girl.This is a pretty funny book but very fitting and helpful for girls starting middle school. I just flipped though but it has lists of to do and not to do. And tips for homework and teacher interactions. Middle school is a tough time for all kids so any help and tips that are actually valuable are appreciated.$3.99A pack of 40 hair ties shaped like a lollipop. Now this is a super duper great item. We go through hair ties in my house more than bread seriously its crazy I wish I knew where they went but the shelf life after I open the package is approximately 2-3 days then I'm searching under the couch cushions at 6:30 a.m praying to sweet Jesus that I can find just 1 or... a zip-tie it is ...kidding but it has crossed my mind.Nicole's Notes:This is a great subscription for kids and a really great value the boys bag is appx $37 the game was also for him, The girls bag was appx $36. They both are well over the cost of the subscription of $19.99. Kids these days really need to put down the electronics and color a darn picture (mine included) and I try to make them. We have arts and crafts, baking or whatever but I try to do a structured activity with them  3-4 times a week (sometimes less) but its so important for kids to realize that they can have fun without electronics. This Subscription checks all the boxes for us Creativity in the packaging, personalized bags, and great items, we already covered value so Kids Busy Bags has it all. This is a wonderful Family owned business so they are caring and involved with each and every order. The customer service is always 100%, which can make or break a company like sub boxes, because people want to feel like their business is appreciated and Busy Bags cares.

  • Herbal Chest Subscription Box Review + Coupon | October 2017
    Herbal Chest Is an Herbal, natural simple body care shop on Etsy. They also offer a monthly subscription box for $29.95 and many other gift boxes like ones for Holistic Healing, all natural skincare, or wellness and mini gift sets too. So they offer a very wide variety for everyone's needs and budgets which is really nice especially if you want to try a product but are not ready for the commitment of a subscription. I received a monthly subscription *in exchange for my review*. When you subscribe you will receive and email asking if you have any allergy's or ailments and they will curate you box to your specific needs which is also very great, This is a very personalized subscription which a lot of people will appreciate. I do not have any allergy's,  I did tell them that my husband suffers from sore muscles and leg cramps, as well as very damaged hands (He is a Mason) so she curated my box for us. Let's look inside.My first peek inside I found a gorgeously packed box as you can see. Also a note telling us their Rose Salve was featured in "Your Handmade Home Magazine". How cool!My first impression was that, if they put this much care into packing the box, I can only imagine how much they put into making the products. There were 5 lovely products a wonderful thank you card, and business cards which I've already given out.$11.50Peony Hibiscus Eye Cream, This as you can see is not like a cream but more like a salve. It was nor greasy at all it absorbed very quickly into my skin and left the very sensitive skin under my eye feeling very soft and hydrated. I have already switched from my usual Juice Cosmetics eye cream to this on my vanity. When given the option to try an all natural product with ingredients that I am familiar with and can pronounce I could not pass it up. If I experience any major positive or negative effects I will update this review.$5.70Muscle and Joint rub I was sent this foe my husband He suffers from terrible leg cramps like Charlie Horse at night from climbing a ladder all day, although this did not prevent the charlie horses it did soothe his sore muscles. Its kind of like Icy Hot but with way better ingredients and without the awful odor. This has a pleasant very mild smell. After application its barely noticeable. $11.90Hemp Avocado Skin Balm this is another item I got for Eddie (my husband) His hands are tore up from handling brick, stone, block, and mortar all day and this was seriously a miracle balm. He said that almost immediately after applying it he felt relief and after using it for 2 consecutive days there is quite a bit of healing taking place on his hands. Hes tried bag balm and Burt's Bees balm but none have even came close to working like this. We love this product and the wonders of still hemp amaze me its just so versatile. $9.90And finally something just for me. Tranquil Lavender roll on perfume and aromatherapy. I love anything that is real lavender and this is right up my alley I've been putting it on my wrists at night because I sleep with them near my face. I do have trouble staying asleep and I put it on again when I wake and it helps me fall back to sleep faster. I love this product very much.$11.20Calendula Herbal Oil I have not tried this yet it says online that its great for eczema which we do not suffer from but, It has vitamin E oil in it which is great for so many things. This is a great product to have on hand especially when there are 3 kids and 2 dogs in the house.Nicole's Notes:This was the first all natural hand-made wellness and body care subscription I received and I was amazed at how well these worked. since writing the sore muscle balm part of this review my daughter woke up with a sore neck, I applied the balm and within 20 minutes she said it was almost completely better and she's a bit of a whiner when it comes to any pain. So yes this stuff works better than any over-the-counter muscle rub. I was very happy with everything about this box from the presentation to obviously the effectiveness of the products. They are a smaller family run Business on Etsy so the customer service is excellent as well. This is a subscription that I would recommend to anyone. Its just an all around great subscription. If you don't want to commit to a subscription you can purchase any of these products and so much more from their Etsy store and you can use the code shopsmall10 to get 10% off you order. Thank You for reading my review I hope you enjoyed it. click below to subscribe or to make a purchase and please support small businesses. Herbal Chest Natural & Simple

Use code MPSPECIAL10DUO for 10% OFF your first Duo Box.*product was received free for review / contains affiliate linksCheck out the unboxy box videoHere's the Box BreakdownOur first glimpse inside the Spice Breeze Subscription. Everything that we received in our Spice Breeze Box. The September Quad Box included 8 spices as well as 4 recipesSo what is all this stuff?This month's spice selection! How beautiful is this!Tibs KitThe Tibs Kit includes the recipe for this Ethiopian dish as well as two spices to use in your recipeThe recipe call for lamb, beef or chicken and has a fresh vegetable mix for most of the rest of the dishThe reverse of the recipe card tells us about this dish and it's convenient prep time!The first Tibs spice packet contains  Cardamom, Cumin, Nigella and Fenugreek and the second includes Cayenne, Coriander, Rue, Cardamom, Cumin, Garlic, Fenugreek, Onion, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Salt, Ginger, Long Pepper, Cumin, Nigella, BasilRougail Spice KitThis spice comes from La Reunion Island.. a cultural melting potThe recipes is very simple and includes sausage, tomatoes, lettuce and rice with some optional add ins like onion, garlic and orange.The reverse tells us a little more in detail about this spicy dishThe spice packets for these are a lot less complex than the Tibs packets. The first baggie contains a mix of thyme, turmeric and bay leaves and the second packet contains just Makrut Lime LeavesRendang Spice KitThis Indonesian Spice Kit sounds so yummy!This is one of the more difficult recipes included this month and contains a mixture of protein, rice, coconut milk and eggplantVoted by CNN Readers as one of the most delicious meals in the world - typically slow cooked we think you'll still find this shortened version tasty!Our first Rendang Packet contains a mixture of Lemongrass (yum), Galangal, Makrut Lime Leaves, Coriander and Turmeric and the second is just Red Chili FlakesRokt med PepparrotssasWe were sort of excited to see a Swedish recipe included in our kit because that's completely new for us!We were also delighted to see that we had all the ingredients for this on hand!This is a traditional Scandinavian dish and is served typically with a smoked or boiled protein. Our first packet is just simply powdered horseradish and our second is dill weedOkay so now what?While our meat and vegetables are cooking we make a rue from flour and butterMeanwhile our meat and potatoes cook!We get our Pepparrotssas spices ready at this pointAfter our potatoes have cooked, we add 1 cup of the water from them to our rueThen we add in very slowly a half cup of creamAfter that has been added we mix our horseradish with a bit of water to smoothen it out Once our mixture is off the heat we can then add the horseradish mixture to the panPlated! This was a nice creamy dish! We made some collards to go along with it although it was suggested that we make carrots with the potatoes as wellIf you want more of a pungent horseradish flavor you can serve this dish cold... or you can do what we did and just add more horseradish!So in summaryWe look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Spice Breeze Subscription is a really nice way to expand your palette and learn of new recipes and spices each month. We love the pricing options and think there is something here for everyone. The presentation is great, everything arrives beautifully. The quality is amazing - these blends are fantastic as well as tasty. And curation is excellent! They do a lot of legwork to get unique recipes each month and coordinate them with the appropriate spice blends! We love Spice Breeze!Check Out Spice Breeze
