Tayst is a subscription service that sends you a customizable assortment of eco-friendly single-serve coffee pods every month.

When you join, you’ll get to choose how many cups you’d like per month (from 20 to 1,000!), along with your preferred blends — there are currently 6 available, which you can mix n’ match. The coffee offered by Tayst is sourced from Rainforest Alliance Certified farmers who support biodiversity, decent living and working conditions for workers, gender equality, and access to education for children in farm communities. The pods themselves are 100% compostable and feature a mesh filter to allow for even water filtration, producing “fuller flavors and smoother mouth feel”. Tayst also offers special gift subscriptions which include pods, compostable to-go cups, coasters, and more.

Disclosure: I received this box for review purposes. I was not compensated in any way. All opinions are my own. Post may contain affiliate and/or referral links.

Subscriptions start at $15/month for 20 pods. — They also offer a free trial to sample their blends before committing to a monthly plan!

Let’s see what’s in my February 2017 Tayst box!

Tayst coffee box

The box!

Tayst review

Tayst coffee review

A peek inside! — I was sent a package of 10 pods, along with a few additional items for review.

Tayst Medium & Magnificent

Tayst pod

Tayst coffee pod

Tayst Medium & Magnificent 1o-Pod Package

Medium & Magnificent is a medium brew described as having hints of fruity mocha, a subtle body, and plenty of flavor. As mentioned earlier, the pods themselves are 100% compostable. — The lid is made from bio materials and water-based compostable ink, the ring from natural bean skins, and the mesh from renewable bio resins.

Tayst coffee

Tayst Bold & Brazen

Bold & Brazen is an obviously bold blend which offers a rich deep flavor with a smokey cocoa finish. Mmm!

Tayst coffee subscription

Tayst Bold & Brilliant and Medium & Heroic

Bold & Brilliant is a medium bodied complex blend with a sweet caramel undertone, while Medium & Heroic offers a sweet and slightly acidic experience made from South American beans.

Tayst compostable cups

100% Compostable Cups

These insulated paper coffee cups have a pocket of air between the layers that remove the need for a cup sleeve. They’re also 100% compostable and feature a comfort lid made from cornstarch. Cool!


I really enjoyed my sampling of eco-friendly coffee pods from Tayst! The coffee itself was great and I love that they make a point to be so socially and environmentally responsible by using Rainforest Alliance Certified coffee and compostable materials to go along with it. 🙂 — Remember, you can order a free trial to sample their blends before committing to a monthly plan!

I recently reviewed February’s American Gluten-Free “Foodie” box (seen here), so now it’s time to check out their “Discovery” snack box!

If you haven’t heard, American Gluten-Free is a subscription box service dedicated to meeting the needs of those living a gluten free lifestyle while promising some fun along the way. There are two different box options to choose from: The Foodie Box & the Discovery Box. The Foodie Box has 7-9 mostly full sized meal based selections for creating delicious meals and comes complete with recipes and often culinary gadgets. The Discovery Box is based on snacks & convenience and includes 7-9 full and sample size products for at home and on-the-go enjoyment. No matter which option you choose, you can be assured that everything inside is both gluten & dairy free. (Many are vegan as well!) All products are made in dedicated gluten and wheat free facilities or/on dedicated gluten free lines.

Disclosure: I received this box for review purposes. I was not compensated in any way. All opinions are my own. Post may contain affiliate and/or referral links.

Subscriptions are $36.95 for the Foodie Box, or $24.95 for the Discovery Box. Discounts are available on 3 or 6 month plans.

Let’s see what’s in the February 2017 American Gluten-Free “Discovery” box!

American Gluten Free review

The box!

American Gluten Free box review

A peek inside!

I’m not sure if there was supposed to be an info card/booklet included (the “Foodie” box had one), but I didn’t receive one.

Quinoa Cookies

Andean Dream Chocolate Chip Quinoa Cookies

Vegan cookies!! I was immediately excited about these and they did not disappoint. While you can definitely tell they’re a healthier cookie, they were nonetheless crunchy and full of chocolatey goodness. I was surprised to find that each cookie in the box was individually wrapped, making them great to take on the go — and a LOT less likely to go stale after opening the box. 🙂

Inka Corn

Inka Corn Original Roasted Giant Corn Snack

These roasted kernels are made from corn grown exclusively in “The Sacred Valley of the Incas” near Cusco and Machu Picchu. The corn is an heirloom variety which was the same type enjoyed centuries ago by the Inca civilization. The kernels are HUGE and have a nice, satisfying crunch.

dried cherries

Cherry Bay Orchards Dried Montmorency Cherries

A larger bag of these cherries were included in the “Foodie” box and my girls and I are still enjoying them (this smaller bag is long gone!). The all natural, preservative-free dried cherries are great for baking into your favorite recipes, or simply enjoyed on their own.

Lola Granola bar

Lola Granola Bar with Almonds and Cranberries

A certified gluten-free granola bar made with all natural, non-GMO ingredients including almonds, dried cranberries, flax seeds, oats, honey, and more. Yum!

Deep River kettle chips

Deep River Snacks Original Salted Kettle Cooked Potato Chips

Small batch cooked kettle chips made with non-GMO, gluten-free ingredients. They’re produced in a nut-free facility and contain no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.

Peas Please snacks

Peeled Snacks Peas Please Garden Herb Snacks

This baked organic all natural pea snack is made with non-GMO, gluten-free ingredients including whole green pea flour, brown rice flour, and a variety of herbs & spices.

Bumble Bar

Bumble Bar Chocolate Crisp Organic Energy Bar

A gluten-free energy bar made with pure ingredients like sesame seeds, flax seeds, peanuts, cocoa powder, and more. It’s also a good source of fiber and contains 5 grams of protein per serving.

Equal Exchange very dark bar

Equal Exchange Very Dark Dark Chocolate Bar

Vegan chocolate! 😀 This bar is made with 71% cacao that’s fairly traded and USDA organic. I’m always happy to get more vegan-friendly chocolates. 🙂


The February 2017 American Gluten-Free “Discovery” snack box was just as impressive as this month’s “Foodie” box. It was loaded with tasty snacks & treats that were almost all vegan-friendly — and of course gluten-free. A great box for anyone with food allergies or following a gluten-free diet. 🙂

February 2017 Daily Goodie Box review time!

If you haven’t heard, Daily Goodie Box is unlike typical subscription boxes because it’s always 100% free! All you have to do is become a member (also free) and fill out a personal profile on their site. If you meet the requirements for a Goodie Box — based on various factors like demographics, interest in current products, etc. — you’ll be eligible for a box and shipped one for free. Each box will feature samples of various food, drink, and personal care items which you’ll be asked to review in your online profile. The more reviews you do, the better your chances of getting chosen for future boxes.

Let’s see what’s in my February 2017 Daily Goodie Box!

Daily Goodie Box

As always everything was shipped in a small white box with a Daily Goodie Box logo on top.

Daily Goodie Box free

Daily Goodie Box review

A peek inside! — On top was an insert card reminding me to review all of the products in my account, where they were listed with photos and links to each respective website.

Gorilly Goods

Gorilly Goods Organic Snacks

I was excited to try this, only to find that the package had punctured during shipment and got chocolate bits all over the box. Aw. 🙁 It sounded so good too! — Organic cashews, pecans, coconut, walnuts, bananas, raisins, and other organic ingredients all coated in 70% dark chocolate. Mmm!

Nellie's All Natural Laundry soda

Nellie’s All-Natural Laundry Soda

A certified biodegradable, non-toxic laundry soda made with all natural hypoallergenic ingredients. It contains no SLS, SLES, or GMOs and is gluten-free & septic safe. Just one tablespoon (scoop included) is all you need for a standard load of laundry.

Nellie's Wow stick

Nellie’s All-Natural Wow Stick Stain Remover

More Nellie’s! This all natural stain remover stick helps stains disappear without having to use harsh chemicals. It actually smells like oranges, thanks to the addition of orange peel oil. I’m curious to try this out, as the reviews on Amazon were really positive!

Nature's Bakery fig bar

Nature’s Bakery Raspberry Fig Bar

I first discovered these whole wheat fig bars in a subscription box and have been buying them regularly ever since. My 4 year olds absolutely love them and I’m happy to give them something that’s free of any high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, or flavors.

Coffee Blocks

Coffee Blocks Better Butter Coffee

Butter coffee seems to be the “in” way to drink coffee these days. This packet contains coffee, grass fed clarified butter, organic virgin coconut oil, organic vanilla extract & organic egg yolk powder. Just mix with hot water and you’re good to go.

Vermont Smoke & Cure Cracked Pepper Beef & Pork Stick

A low carb, low calorie meat snack made from beef & pork raised free of antibiotics or added hormones.

Just Chill Zero

Just Chill Zero Ginger

A “sparkling calming beverage” that’s said to help reduce stress and increase focus. It’s made with all natural ingredients and is free of both calories & sugar.

XyliChew gum

XyliChew Spearmint Gum

An all natural chewing gum sweetened with birch xylitol. It’s GMO-free and contains no sugar or artificial sweeteners.

Dream Water Sleep Powder

An all natural, zero calorie powder sleep aid that helps you wake up feeling rested and rejuvenated. It’s drug-free and non-habit forming.

Jack n' Jill toothpaste

Jack N’ Jill Natural Toothpaste

We’ve used this brand a few times when the girls were younger and we had no complaints. The all natural formula is free of fluoride, sugar, artificial colors, SLS, and preservatives. It’s also totally safe if swallowed.

Aloha daily good greens

ALOHA Daily Good Greens Chocolate Whole Food Powder

A whole food powder made with all natural, plant-based ingredients including spirulina, blueberries, raspberries, and spinach. These blends are great for tossing into smoothies for a little extra boost of nutrition.


Another great variety of samples (and full sized items!) from Daily Goodie Box! I was sad that my Gorilly Goods got opened in transit, but overall I was happy. How can you not be happy with a 100% free sample box? 😉

Breo Box review

As promised, everything came tucked inside of a handcrafted wooden Breo Box box.

Breo Box review

Breo Box contents

A peek inside!

Breo Box review

Breo Box Winter 2016 contents

An info card was tucked into a sleek black envelope and listed all of the items inside, along with the retail values of each one.

Misfit Ray fitness tracker

Misfit Ray fitness tracker

Misfit Ray fitness tracker

Misfit Ray Fitness Tracker ($120 Retail, $99 Amazon)

This chic little fitness tracker automatically tracks steps taken, distance traveled, calories burned, and sleep duration & quality. It comes with 3 replaceable button cell batteries so it never needs charging and is water-resistant to 50 meters, so it doesn’t need to be removed even while swimming. You can also use it to set movement reminders, get vibration alerts for calls/text/alarms, take a selfie, control your music, and more.

moscow mule cups

Brouk & Co Moscow mule mugs

Brouk & Co Moscow Mule Mugs ($72)

These artisan crafted mugs are designed of a pure copper body and comfortable brass handle that will last you a lifetime. While perfect for serving up a Moscow Mule, they’re also great for beer, eggnog and other cold beverages. Each mug holds a generous 16 ounces.

Mill City Fineries plaid scarf

Mill City Fineries plaid scarf

Mill City Fineries Plaid Scarf ($64)

This scarf is SO soft! It was handcrafted in Minneapolis and is made of 100% flannel cotton hand-selected in St Paul. It measures 10″ wide x 70″ long and is the perfect accessory for cold Northeast winters.

Spigen wireless headphones

Spigen wireless earbuds

Spigen headphones

Spigen Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds ($70 Retail, $26.99 Amazon)

These wireless earbuds are compact, lightweight, and sweat-proof — making them ideal for the gym, hiking, cycling, and other physical activities. It also features optimal noise reduction and a built-in mic with voice prompts and voice message to answer incoming calls. It’s fully compatible with Bluetooth enabled devices and has a Li-ion battery charged with the included micro USB cable.

Shake cocktail book

Shake cocktail book

Shake: A New Perspective on Cocktails by Eric Prum & Josh Williams ($30 Retail, $17.62 Amazon)

Shake is “an artisanal cocktail book by two best friends and the entrepreneurs who invented the The Mason Shaker cocktail shaker and whose mission is to bring cocktail crafting out of the bar and into the home.” The book is packed with flavorful recipes that are all accompanied by beautiful full-color photos. I rarely drink alcohol, but these gorgeous creations makes me want to imbibe just a tad. 😉

Nectar sunglasses

nectar sunglasses

Nectar sunglasses

Nectar Sunglasses with Polarized Lenses ($45)

I couldn’t find these exact frames online, so I’m not sure of the actual value (I used the price listed on the info card). Either way, these are a decent pair of everyday sunglasses with blue polarized lenses. My husband and I both wear prescription glasses though, so these will be passed along to someone who can actually use them.


Wow! — What an impressive debut offering from Breo Box! The cost of this subscription may be higher than most, but they certainly deliver on their promise of $300-400 in products. While this first box was more catered towards men, they’ve stated that future offerings will be for both men and women. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the Spring 2017 box! 😀

Let’s see what’s in the February 2017 Sundae’s World box!

Sundae's World review

Sundae's World review

Everything was shipped in a colorful suitcase-shaped box with Sundae the penguin pictured on the end.

Sundae's World postcard

Sundae's World postcard

Sundae traveled all the way to Germany this month to visit Legoland Deutschland in Günzburg — which according to his postcard, features 55 million assembled Lego bricks!

Num Noms lights

Num Noms

Num Noms Lights

I wasn’t totally sure how this little figure was supposed to work, but after taking the photos I realized that the top flexible layer comes off to reveal a smaller figure underneath it. The smaller piece has a little button that you can press to put on a cool mini light show. Nothing too mind-blowing, but I can see why kids would like it. 😉

Shimmer & Shine blind box

Shimmer & Shine blind bottle

Shimmer & Shine teeny genies

Shimmer and Shine Teenie Genies

My girls are super into Shimmer and Shine now, so I knew they’d be excited about this one. — It’s a blind “bottle” with one of over 130 different genie figures inside. We got what looks to be “Zora”, who I don’t recognize from the show and am assuming is just a random extra(?). Nonetheless, my girls both fought over who got to play with her first. Ha.

Shopkins party

shopkins

shopkins Betty Bouquet

Shopkins Season 7 Join the Party 5-Pack

Surprisingly, my girls haven’t quite bought into the whole Shopkins obsession yet. We’ve watched a few of the “unboxing” videos on YouTube, but they’ve never actually asked to have any of their own. (Not that I’m complaining!) So this was our official introduction to the world of Shopkins. The set came with 4 figures that were revealed ahead of time, along with a mystery figure hidden inside the box and a glittery lantern to hold one of them. (Our mystery figure turned out to be “Betty Bouquet” — an ultra rare. Ooh!)

Magic Mee Mees

Magic Mee Mee

Yummee surprises

Magic MeeMees Yummee Surprises

Okay, this one really confused me until I realized that this was actually a treat for a Magic Meemees figure that you have to purchase separately. You press the button on the side and it interacts with your Magic Meemee figure. So basically, it’s kinda pointless unless you have a figure to go with it.

surprise egg

Powerpuff Girls surprise egg

Powerpuff Girls Bubbles Figure Series 1

An orange surprise egg contained a Powerpuff Girls Series 1 “Bubbles” figure! I haven’t opened it yet because it looks like it hasn’t been released on Amazon yet and preorders are $15… Since my girls aren’t into Powerpuff Girls, I’d rather just keep it sealed just in case. 😉

Monster High Fashums

Monster High Fashems

Monster High Fash’ems Series 1

We’ve seen these on YouTube toy surprise videos, but never got to check one out in person. The figure is super squishy and has a really strong smell (thanks to whatever it’s made of). I can’t help but think that this thing will be a total magnet for fuzz and stray hairs, so I’m not quite sure if I want to hand it over to the girls just yet. Knowing them, they’d be happy enough with the plastic container anyway. 😉


Sundae’s World is a great subscription box for anyone whose kids have an obsession with surprise eggs and blind boxes. It’s nice that they let you customize the box (to some extent) with gender and color choices as well. Fun stuff! 🙂

Awwww! I love this guy! YumeTwins subscribers received one of 24 possible types of these Fumofumo plushies from Shinada. At first I thought mine was a beaver, but realized he didn’t have his signature beaver teeth… After a bit of research, I discovered that he’s actually a sea otter! — An adorable, super snuggly sea otter. 🙂

Neko Atsume! I’m always happy when they include something featuring these sweet little kitties from the popular app. This reusable shopping tote stars Mr. Tubbs (the pudgy one) and some of his feline friends. It also comes with its own little coordinating storage bag with a snap closure. Too cute!

Bananya keychain

Bananya YumeTwins

Bananya Mini Mascot Keychain

According to the info booklet, Bananya is a popular Japanese anime based on a white cat who lives inside a banana. It’s a fairly new show which only debuted this past July, but it’s already gaining a strong following in Japan and beyond. I received a black cat with a little red bow tie, who I’m assuming is one of the main character’s (Bananya?) friends.

Sumikko Gurashi wall hook

Sumikko Gurashi Wall Hook

Sumikko Gurashi is a line of characters by San-X who are all very shy and like to huddle together in corners. YumeTwins sent subscribers one of these wall hooks featuring 1 of 4 different characters — a penguin, white bear, cat, or the one that I received — Tonkatsua pork cutlet. Ha.

Amuse Cat a la Mode keychain

This little keychain is seriously a work of art! The details are perfectly crafted and it almost looks good enough to eat. That said, I’d never be able to use this as an actual keychain because I’d always be paranoid that the sweet little decorations would fall off. 😉


What a fun YumeTwins box! My favorite items this time were the adorable Fumofumo sea otter plush, the Neko Atsume tote, the Bananya plush, and the Cat a la Mode keychain. 🙂 — Remember, for a limited time you can save $5 on a 3-month subscription with coupon code VALENTINE3!

Let’s see what’s in the January 2017 Darby Smart “To DIY For Box”!

Darby Smart review

Everything was shipped in a white & blue box via first class mail.

Darby Smart review

A peek inside!

Darby Smart Himmeli

January’s featured project was a brass Himmeli Hanging Wall Planter or Love Wall Art. — You could choose which of the two DIYs you wanted to complete.

Darby Smart video

According to the card above, Himmeli is a Finnish art form that celebrates life, love, and positivity. Darby Smart chose it to bring good vibes into the new year. A url was provided to access full how-to videos for completing the project, but you can also access them on the free Darby Smart iPhone app as well.

brass tubing

Brass Tubes

A package of nine thin brass tubes were included, would serve as the main component of your himmeli.

brass wire

Brass Wire

30 yards of brass wire was provided to insert into the tubes to form the shape of the himmeli and hold it together.

tube cutter

Tubing Cutter

A tubing cutter would be used to cut each of the brass tubes to the correct lengths, as indicated in the video.

air plant

Air Plant

For those who went with the hanging planter option, an air plant was included to perch inside. I’ve had a few air plants (and still have one survivor left), but never any this big. — It’s freakin’ HUGE! 😀

Okay… Here comes the part where instead of a completed project reveal, I present you with a lame excuse as to why I haven’t gotten around to doing it yet. (Yep, it’s high school all over again.) When the box came in the mail way back in early January, I had every intention of getting it done within a few days… Those few days turned into a few weeks, and here we are halfway into February… What can I say? Life happens. 😉 I’ll get it done eventually and will try to remember to update this post with photos. After all, that little (big!) plant deserves a home!


So aside from my immense procrastination in completing January’s Darby Smart project, I was nonetheless happy with the kit itself. I love the simple design of the plant holder and it’s something I’ll definitely be displaying in my home. 🙂 — Remember, for a limited time you can save $10 on your first box with coupon code “FIRSTBOXOR try a past box for FREE just by using this link!
