Monthly Subscription Box Review

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Subscription boxes are all the rage these days. I never ever thought I would be someone to get a monthly subscription box. Sounded like throwing away money to me. However, back in October, one of my good friends was raving about the Popsugar Must Have Box and was looking for referrals so she could get one free month. I thought, why not, I'll look into it. Can't hurt to help a friend, right? So I looked at the Popsugar blog of past boxes and was impressed with the items they showed. I decided to help out my friend. I meant to just purchase one month.. And so it began! 

I am LOVING this subscription box! I just received my sixth box a few days ago and plan on signing up for another 3 month order! Please note, I am NOT getting paid for telling you about the Popsugar Must Have Box! I just wanted to share something I love!! :)

The best thing about this subscription box is that it isn't limited to one thing. They send cosmetics, jewelry, accessories, books, health/fitness items, candles, food, and more! So it's always a surprise to see what you might find in the box. I wait not-so-patiently the moment I get the shipping notification for it to arrive! I will say, it is one of the more expensive boxes I've seen at roughly $40/month, BUT they guarantee to send over $100 worth of merchandise in each box (and most of the time they surpass that amount!). That means you receive pretty high quality stuff! And it's not just sample sized items! They also send awesome coupons and occasional gift cards, provide free boxes for referrals, and sometimes host contests! I have no complaints at all!

Here's the April box, which is one of my favorite boxes!

Here are just some of the items I have received over the past six months... If it's not pictured it is because a) I ate it already, b) I have used all of it, or c) it's too big to fit in the picture!

My favorite items have been the strawberry and blackcurrant jam, pipcorn, snapea crisps, the calendar, lip gloss/ lipstick duo, and the eyeshadow pallette. Love all of it!

I definitely recommend this box! I'm already waiting for the May box to arrive!
Sign up if you're interested! Use code REFER5 to save $5 on your first box! Enjoy!

Do any of you have a monthly subscription box you've fallen in love with? Please share!!!

April Monthly Goals

Monday, April 7, 2014

Happy April, everyone! If you've been following along, you know I didn't complete many projects in March thanks to my awful night shift schedule. I'm excited to say that I work night shift this week and then I work day shift until mid-May! WOOHOO!!!!! So hopefully I will be very productive!!!
I'm not going to rehash my March goals for you because there is not much checked off the list at all! So if I didn't complete my to-do list, what on earth did I get done? Well...
I guess I don't look like that much of a slacker when you put it into a list like that ;)

So what am I going to accomplish in April? I don't want to get too specific for April because Pete and I want to focus on getting some outdoor stuff done and I really have no idea how long those projects will take! We also both have multiple bachelor/bachelorette parties this month and back to back weddings in the beginning of May. So I know we are going to be crazy busy! But here are some general things...

  • I have several blog things to figure out and take care of (for instance, paragraph spacing issues in Blogger... so frustrating to go back and correct spacing in posts over and over again!)
  • Post a few things from our DIY wedding.
  • I would LOVE to actually get the stairwell and hall painted this month. Again, we need to find someone to help us buy an extendable ladder because we don't have a truck. 
  • Finish the dining room artwork I started last month.
  • Work on the yard!
We have TONS to do outside! 
  • Set up the pond we've been planning for months.
  • Remove bushes in front of the house and replace with flower garden.
  • Install new mail box.
  • Cut down giant holly tree in the middle of the backyard.
  • Buy patio furniture.
  • Figure out how to remove ivy ground cover for good and remove it from backyard.
  • Transplant azalea bushes (we'll probably wait until fall, but it's on our to do list!).
  • Mulch all of the gardens.
  • Plant the tree we used for our wedding "tree cermony" :)
There are plenty more items on our outdoor to-do list, but those are the things we want to get done this year! Yikes! We better get started!!!
