Orange Glad is a new subscription box launched last month that specializes in baked goods and sweet treats. They select popular items from various bakeries around the country and pack them all together to be delivered right to your door. Boxes start at $15/month plus shipping. Not a bad deal for a box full of yummers. Unfortunately for me, none of the items in the August box were vegan. However, I fully expected this to be the case, so I wasn’t too bummed. My family was more than happy to take the treats off my hands. Okay, onto the baked […]

Our Local Box is a fun subscription service that sends you the best of Kentucky every month. Items can range from food/snacks, beauty products, things for the home, and even Kentucky-themed t-shirts. I was excited when Our Local Box agreed to send me a box for review, but even more so when I found out that the theme for August was “Vegan Treats from Kentucky”. Um, talk about good timing! (Serendipity? Yeah, we’ll go with serendipity.) Okay, let’s see what vegan goodness Kentuckians have to offer…
I’m super excited about this giveaway because it involves one of my truest loves — cookies! Vegan cookies! Woo!! I had gotten word of Om Nom Nom Cookies via a giveaway on another blog a few months ago. They looked AMAZING, so I prayed to the Rafflecopter gods that I’d win. Sadly, I did not. So I’m sure you can imagine how psyched I was when they agreed to send me some samples AND let me do a giveaway of my own. So, so psyched! Om Nom Nom cookies are 100% vegan and 110% awesome. I kid you not. These […]
Another month, another awesome package from Vegan Presence! This is definitely one of my favorite subscriptions. It’s great knowing that everything I get will be vegan-friendly and wrapped with pretty ribbons & stickers. 🙂 Let’s unwrap the goodies and see what I got this month…
I was pleasantly surprised to see the August Taste Trunk on my doorstep today. They don’t send tracking numbers, so it just kinda shows up when it wants. Which is sorta nice, since I don’t have to obsessively refresh any tracking pages. 😉 As with last month, I ordered the “Health Trunk”. There are 4 different themed boxes (“trunks”) to choose from: “Sweet Trunk”, “Gourmet Trunk”, and “BBQ Trunk”. Can’t decide which one you want? They have an option on their website to switch trunks whenever you want. You can change it every month if that’s the way you roll. […]
Okay, so there’s no clowns here (and there never will be — those things are creepy as hell). Figured I should get that outta the way, lest I disappoint any clown lovers out there. Ahem, moving on… This has been one of the suckiest “good mail” weeks in a long time. How sucky was it, you ask? Sooo sucky that I seriously got nothing but junk mail all damn week. Oh, and bills (the only thing worse than junk mail). Not one box, package, free shampoo sample… Nada. Sad, right? Keep me in your thoughts. DISCOUNTS Citrus Lane – $10 off your first […]
Munchit is a new-ish subscription service for your healthy snackin’ needs. But unlike most subs, this one comes weekly. No waiting all month for your box to show up! You get one every. dang. week. Oh, and it’s totally affordable too! (Less than $4/box!) Each Munchit contains one 2-serving container of snack mix, one all-natural treat, a mini pack of natural chewing gum, and a tea bag (for hot or iced tea). You simply select all of the snack mixes and treats that you’d like to try and they use your selections to build your box. You won’t know what you’ll […]
As threatened promised, here are the photos from the girls’ first birthday. I already covered all the sappy stuff in this post, so I’ll try to keep my ~feelings~ in check for this one. 😉 Ev was psyched that it was her birthday. Chloe was a little less enthused. Once it sunk in that it was her birthday too, Chloe got a little more pumped. (Ev thought it was absurd that it took so long for her to figure that out, but she kept it to herself.)
I was recently contacted by Earnest Eats after they found a review I did of one of their baked whole food bars (so good!). They wanted to know if I’d be interested in reviewing their new Hot & Fit Cereal line. Since I was already a fan of their yum-tastic food bars, I gladly accepted the offer. Earnest Eats prides itself on only using high quality, all natural whole foods in each of their products. They’re not down with artificial anything! You can be sure that you’re not gonna find any crazypants ingredients that you can’t pronounce in any of their […]
Conscious Box recently announced a special Summer Mystery Box packed full of eco-friendly goodies. They’ve offered these in the past and they were awesome, so I wasted no time ordering one this time around… Besides, who doesn’t love a good mystery box? (Wackos, that’s who!) Alright, let’s dive right in and see what I got!

One year ago today I welcomed you into the world. Both of you. My “two little rosebuds”. You were tiny and pink and oh-so-fragile. I was afraid to hold you. I didn’t know a damn thing about motherhood. Or babies. Or twins. It was all so foreign to me. So new. So… terrifying.
Here’s a little something different… socks! Oh, but these aren’t your everyday “pick ’em up at Target” kinda socks. Nope. These babies are made with bamboo! Why bamboo? Read on, my sock-wearin’ friend! Zockster, the company behind these unique socks, is all about sustainability. Using bamboo to produce socks takes less than 1/10th of the water needed to make “standard” cotton ones. Bamboo also has natural properties that really come in handy when you’re talking socks: Moisture-wicking (less sweat=less stink!), anti-bacterial (less germs!), increased circulation (good for the ‘beetus!), and more.
