Post-Move update

Hello!

It has been a while since we updated and I have some news to share.  We successfully moved to Maryland and have found an apartment.  It is nice to be back close to family.  I am still waiting to hear back about a job.  We plan to look for a house when I have an income.  I went ahead and subscribed to Out of the Box sampler for the next few months.  As it stands I will not be subscribing to any other boxes until I have worked a couple months and re-grow my savings.  I still have some backlog of posts to make and I will have the monthly Out of the Box Sampler for you.  Please let me know if there is anything you want to see!

Thanks for reading

Closer look at all of the decorations that were included this month.

All of the supplies for the Soy Wax Candle in Blue Ombre.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C:\Users\Sophia\Desktop\tmp\tmp Blog\0315 Shinsbins Mar 2015\63.jpg

 

Here is the finished candle. I made it a little full, so the lid doesn’t fit properly now. This project was fun, but it was a lot of waiting, as the layers cooled. I intend to use the candle as a gift, and it came out beautifully!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

All of the supplies for the wildflower seed bomb.

Here is the finished seed bombs. I will be sending this to my mom to put in her garden. She will love it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I forgot to take pictures of the supplies for this project, but here is the finished Tote. This was a lot of fun to make, and I got creative with the flowers and glitter. I think it came out great.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Verdict: I love this box, and I plan to re-subscribe when their website goes live.

Bestowed

Every month Bestowed sends 7-10 of the best healthy snacks, beverages, and lifestyle items straight to your door. Every product they feature is carefully selected by their team of experts led by nutritionist Heather Bauer.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C:\Users\Sophia\Desktop\tmp\tmp Blog\0415 Bestowed Apr 2015\41.jpg

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C:\Users\Sophia\Desktop\tmp\tmp Blog\0415 Bestowed Apr 2015\42.jpg Balance Bar Bar Dark Chocolate Crunch ~$1.60 This bar as alright, but wouldn’t be my first pick for a protein bar.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C:\Users\Sophia\Desktop\tmp\tmp Blog\0415 Bestowed Apr 2015\43.jpg

 

Bitsy’s Brainfood Smart Cookies in Oatmeal Raisin ~$2.23. We don’t like raisin so this was given to a friend. When he ate it I tried one and they weren’t bad. I would be willing to try other flavors!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C:\Users\Sophia\Desktop\tmp\tmp Blog\0415 Bestowed Apr 2015\44.jpg

 

Coco Libre Organic Coconut Water ~$2.18 I have discovered that I don’t like Coconut water, so I gave this to a friend.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C:\Users\Sophia\Desktop\tmp\tmp Blog\0415 Bestowed Apr 2015\45.jpg

 

Dandy Blend Instant Herbal Beverage with Dandelion ~$0.15. I have not tried this yet, but it is supposed to be a coffee replacement with no caffeine. Sounds interesting. They also included a brochure with information on this product, and includes a recipe for a Latte.

*Update: I never did try this.  I think it got lost in the move.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C:\Users\Sophia\Desktop\tmp\tmp Blog\0415 Bestowed Apr 2015\46.jpg

 

ENLIGHTENED: The-Good-For-You Crisp ~$1.14 I gave these crisps to Seraph since I don’t like Wasabi. He still hasn’t tried them. I noticed on their website that they also sell guilt-free ice cream. I’m going to have to look for that.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C:\Users\Sophia\Desktop\tmp\tmp Blog\0415 Bestowed Apr 2015\47.jpg

 

Fuel For Fire Fuel in Triple Berry. ~$3 I did not like this drink at all. I have yet to find a fruit/veggie drink pack that I like. It was worth a try though.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C:\Users\Sophia\Desktop\tmp\tmp Blog\0415 Bestowed Apr 2015\48.jpg Snap Infusion Supercandy Tart ~$1.99. This candy was so good. It gave me energy for a long night, and tasted great. Seraph even kept stealing some from me. This is an item that I would buy again.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C:\Users\Sophia\Desktop\tmp\tmp Blog\0415 Bestowed Apr 2015\49.jpg

 

Zarbee’s Naturals Seasonal Relief ~$7 This was the bonus items I received. Odd that the bonus item is higher value than all of the other items. We have not tried this yet, but I have bad allergies so I will give it a try eventually.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Verdict: The value of this box was ~$19.29. Not quite equal to the cost of the box, but I was able to try some new products that I would not have otherwise. I would rather try it once in a box like this than to go out and buy something I don’t like.

OLD REVIEW: Birchbox Woman May 2015 Review

Name: Birchbox Woman
Cost: $10
C:\Users\Sophia\Google Drive\Blog\Birchbox\Logo.png

Every month, Birchbox subscribers will receive a curated box of five beauty, grooming, and/or lifestyle samples. To personalize your boxes, complete your respective Beauty or Grooming Profile to help them learn more about who you are and what you’re looking to discover.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C:\Users\Sophia\Desktop\tmp\tmp Blog\0515 Birchbox MAY 2015\99.jpg

Once again a beautiful box. I’m starting to run out of things to use them for. This box also included a code for 15% off the DOMINO.COM with a discount for the magazine. I took a quick look at the site, but everything was too expensive to make the 15% off worth it. The stuff was nice though.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C:\Users\Sophia\Desktop\tmp\tmp Blog\0515 Birchbox MAY 2015\101.jpg

 

Beauty Protector Beauty Cream Body Lotion There was no size on this but full value is $15.95 for 7oz. I would guess this to be about 1 oz. so worth about $2.25.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C:\Users\Sophia\Desktop\tmp\tmp Blog\0515 Birchbox MAY 2015\102.jpg

 

Coastal Scents Revealed 3 Palette ~$5 These colors are so pretty, but I don’t wear eyeshadow, so this will be swapped.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C:\Users\Sophia\Desktop\tmp\tmp Blog\0515 Birchbox MAY 2015\103.jpg

Living proof. Restore Shampoo/Conditioner. Each sample is worth ~$1.18. This is a healing product that may even prevent dirt/oil from building up on the hair. I am looking forward to trying it.

Living proof. Restore Instant Repair Lotion ~$7.25 This lotion is supposed to repair split ends. I will have to try it with my current anti-frizz serum and see how it works.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C:\Users\Sophia\Desktop\tmp\tmp Blog\0515 Birchbox MAY 2015\104.jpg

 

Marcelle Hydra-C 24H Energizing Hydrating Gel ~$3.36 this is supposed to brighten skin and hydrate. This will be something to use when I switch to night shift and don’t have to worry as much about sun protection.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C:\Users\Sophia\Desktop\tmp\tmp Blog\0515 Birchbox MAY 2015\105.jpg

 

Raw Spirit Fragrances Desert Blush Eau de Parfum ~$3 Another perfume in this box. This will be swapped as well.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Verdict: value of this box is $23.22, more than double the cost of the box. Most of the items I will use, so this was also a win for me.

I want whatever you have, even though I know that I won’t like it and will be offended that you offered it to me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C:\Users\Sophia\Desktop\tmp\tmp Blog\0415 Birchbox Apr 2015\67.jpg

 

jane iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain in Forever Pink. There is no size listed on this sample, so I am not going to try and estimate a price. Full size is $25 for 0.1oz.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C:\Users\Sophia\Desktop\tmp\tmp Blog\0415 Birchbox Apr 2015\fr_28_size880.jpg

 

Here is the Lip and Cheek stain swatched on my hand. It is a very light pink, and smells amazing. It will definitely be used.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C:\Users\Sophia\Desktop\tmp\tmp Blog\0415 Birchbox Apr 2015\64.jpg

 

Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel ~$4.80. I didn’t care much for this peel.  It just felt gunky on my skin, and I felt like I didn’t get much out of it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C:\Users\Sophia\Desktop\tmp\tmp Blog\0415 Birchbox Apr 2015\66.jpg

 

Supergoop!® Daily Correct CC Cream SPF 35+ ~$2.04 I don’t usually use tinted items on my face, but I will give this a try. I may have been better off with the fair light tint, but we will see.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C:\Users\Sophia\Desktop\tmp\tmp Blog\0415 Birchbox Apr 2015\65.jpg

 

Temple Spa Peace Be Still Calming Face & Body Balm ~$3.62 This balm is supposed to nourish the skin and calm the mind. I haven’t tried it yet, but I should start using it before bed. Maybe it would help me sleep.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Verdict: The value of this box was $11.56 plus the value of the Lip stain. Most of these items were a win for me, and I will use all of them except the perfume. The value was over the cost of the box.

Out of the Box Sampler Sept 2016 Review

Name: Out of the Box Sampler
Cost: $27 full size/ $11 mini
Ships Via: USPS

word-image

Each month they put together boxes filled to the brim with 17-18 (and sometimes more) different businesses’ samples for you to enjoy. The boxes overflow with items like melts, scrubs, bath, body, tarts, candles, gourmet foods, jewelry, coupons, discounts, cards and much more, from some of the best e-tailers on the web. They also sometimes ask if you have any cats/dogs or allergies.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

First look. The theme this month is “Think Pink” Awareness Sampler. The box sponsor is Joie Joelle.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Peanut Brittle form Ken’s Airy Crunch. This was passed on to my Mom, who says it is pretty good. The seller included a 20% of code.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Soap from Mother’s Nature Store. This soap has a citrusy scent.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Chocolate Mousse Goats Milk Soap from Home and Family Creations. This one smells really good, just like chocolate. I can’t wait to give it a try.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Orange Soap from Rockin Lather LLC. This soap smells strongly of orange, but it is not an overwhelming scent. Nice and fresh for a morning shower. This was a new seller for me and they included a 10% off code.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Soap from Gagey Gage Designs. This soap has a light flowery scent, that I can’t quite place, but smells good. This was a new seller for me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Coconut Rose Body Salt Scrub from Surrender Yourself Creations. This scrub smells of coconut with hints of rose. It is a pretty scent that I look forward to trying. They included a 20% off code.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C:\Users\Sophia\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCacheContent.Word\20160912_174119575_iOS.JPG Watermelon Taffy Mini Bath Bomb also from Surrender Yourself Creations. This smells just like watermelon taffy. Without looking at the label I was able to pin the scent. I can’t wait to give it a try.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Sea Kelp Detox Body Soak from LivingLena. This soak has a light scent to it that I think will be very refreshing in a tub as I soak.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Shake Your Tailfeather Fizzy Bath Salts from Fat Cock Farms. These salts sound very interesting and I can’t wait to give them a try. They have a light scent that will be nice in the tub. This was a new seller for me this month.,

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Lemon Ice Fizzies from BellaGlo Skincare. These fizzies smell just like lemon, and will be very refreshing in a morning bath.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C:\Users\Sophia\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCacheContent.Word\20160912_174038306_iOS.JPG Fizzy Sand Bath Salt from Copacetic Beauty. This salt has a light scent that really makes me think of the beach. I can’t wait to give it a try and see just how ‘fizzy’ it is! They included a 20% off code.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C:\Users\Sophia\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCacheContent.Word\20160912_174047509_iOS 1.jpg Ariel Scent stick also from Copacetic Beauty. I am going to guess that this is a solid perfume. It is a little strong, but I will probably use it. It smells kinda watery.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Attraction roll-on Perfume from Joie Joelle. This scent doesn’t smell very good to me, until I put it on. It works as a perfume, but I wouldn’t like it as a room spray or candle. This was the sponsor this month, and they included a 15% off code.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Face scrubby from Jodi’s Craft Emporium. Another Face Scrubby. This seller also included a 20% off code.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Marina Earrings from Designs by Katie Leigh You can’t really see it in the picture, but these earrings have a nice texture of stone to them. Studs aren’t really my style so I will probably use these as a gift. This was a new seller for me, and they included a 15% off code.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Pink Bracelet from The Jewelry Box. This is a pretty pink that fits my wrist nicely. I don’t have anything like it, so it will be kept for myself.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Save the Boobies Scrabble Tile Pendant from vdrFamily. The next two items are also from this seller. This pendant is adorable. I don’t see myself wearing it, so I think it will be used as a gift. The seller included a code for free shipping. This was a new seller for me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hot/Cold pack from vdrFamily. I put this pack straight in the freezer. I pulled it out that evening and it got surprisingly cold! I love the size and re-usability of the pack.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Tiny Treasure Charm from vdrFamily. This charm is very cute. I don’t know what I would do with it, so it will probably be used as a gift.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hope charm from Panda Bear Studios. This charm is cute, but once again I don’t have anything to do with is, so it will probably be a gift. This was a new seller for me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Greeting Card from Hug a Tree With Me. Inside it says You seriously ROCK! This card is adorable and I know that it would be great for me to send so some friends. The hardest part is deciding who!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Shooting Stars Wax Tart from Galaxy Candles. I like this seller’s tarts. They are not overwhelming and smell great.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Buttercream scented Pink Ribbon Soy Votive Candle from Candle Abracadabra. This candle smells great, a lot like vanilla. I currently have it burning as I write this. This seller included a 10% off code.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Pink Stiletto Wax Tart from Candle Confectionery. This tart smells sweet, and I can’t wait to try it. They included a 20% off code.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

LOVESPELL wax tart from Ugly Duckling Designs. This one is a strong scent that I can’t quite place. Sweet and flowery. I’ll still give it a try.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Verdict: Like always I don’t give a cost breakdown for this box. I still love it. It looks like I may have to take a few months off though. I hope to be moving soon. Also I haven’t found a job yet and my unemployment is about to run out so I need to be saving money. I will miss this!
