July bluum Review & 50% Off Discount Code


bluum is one of my favorite boxes to open every month. Unlike most of the other “baby/kid” boxes, I never really know what’s going to be inside this one. The contents are based on the age of your kiddo, and boxes tend to vary a LOT. So it pretty much remains a mystery until it reaches my doorstep. (And I LOVE me some mystery boxes!)

For those who aren’t aware, bluum is a monthly subscription box for babies & kiddos from birth through age 5. Each box contains 5 or more products that are responsibly sourced, eco-friendly and often organic.

There used to be monthly “themes”, but they’ve moved away from that and instead curate each box based upon your child’s current age in months. bluum also recently joined forces with Stork Stack, so anyone who had a subscription with them (Stork Stack) will now be receiving boxes from bluum instead.

My girls are currently 23 months old, so the bluum box I received was for 24 months. Okay, let’s see what was in the big red box this time! (more…)

New Subscription! Beauteque July Beauty Bag Review & Giveaway! Ends 8/11/14


Beauteque is an online cosmetics and skincare retailer whose mission is to bring you high quality products from around the world. Many of their products come directly from places such as Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and France. All items are tested for quality and only the best are chosen to be sold in their shop.

They’ve recently (as in this month!) started offering a customizable Beauty Bag as a way of sampling some of their great products. Every beauty bag will have a certain selection of products — BUT – you get to choose which variations/colors you’d like of each one.

Beauteque Beauty Bags are currently in a “trial” phase and only available for July, September, and November. In January they will begin the monthly service. You can still order July’s bag here for $22 shipped (in US, elsewhere is more) and all 3 months can be preordered with a 3-month subscription for $60.

Alright, let’s check out my July Beauty Bag! (more…)

July Citrus Lane Review & Code for $9 Box!


Yay! Citrus Lane time! This is one of my favorite boxes and one of the first I ever subscribed to.

Citrus Lane is a monthly subscription for babies/kids aged newborn-5. It’s $29/month (cheaper with longer subs) and includes a nice assortment of toys, books, snacks, toiletries, etc. Sometimes they even include a gift for mom.

This month’s box featured products that are great for travel and “on-the-go”. As always, I had already seen plenty of spoilers and pretty much knew what would be in my box. That said, I was still excited to see (confirm?) what was inside.

Our box is geared towards a 23-month year old girl and here’s what we got… (more…)

New Subscription! – Founded 1776 July “Sweet Freedom” Box Review


Founded 1776 is a brand new subscription box that’s dedicated to all things American made. The company’s mission is to make it easy for everyone to discover great “household goods and lifestyle accessories” made right here in the USA. Cool!

The boxes are released quarterly, with this one (July) being the very first. Each box will include 3-4 curated products with a retail value of at least $35. This isn’t a “typical” subscription box in that it doesn’t include food, beauty items, or other standard fare. They only send high quality, thoughtfully designed products that are also vegan friendly (woo!).

I recently received their debut box for review, so let’s have a look-see! (more…)

Kiwibop Postcard Pals Start-up Package Review


Kiwibop is a new educational subscription for kids age 5 and up. When you sign up, your child will receive one fun postcard in the mail every week from one of the Kiwibop “Postcard Pals”. Each card will feature a new “adventure, cool place, or weird animal fact”.

For every subscription sold, Kiwibop donates one to a child in need. They even encourage members to refer a child who has a serious illness or injury, so that they too can receive a little “happy mail”. Such a great idea. Who doesn’t love happy mail? I sure do! ;)

Kiwibop is $8.99/month or less with longer commitments. Shipping is included.

I was recently sent their introductory “Start-up Package” for review. This is the first package that you receive as a member. Each month thereafter you’ll receive weekly postcards.
