Appleseed Lane is a fun new subscription box designed for kiddos 4-8 years old. The box focuses on age-appropriate science projects and related crafts. Each month features a different theme, with projects relating to it. All of the materials needed are right in the box, including a cute little illustrated booklet that explains the science behind the experiments in a kid-friendly way. The box that I received for review was “Halloween Science”. Fun! I love holiday-themed boxes!
Goody Gorilla is a new-ish subscription box that delivers healthy snacks to your door for just $15 a month (shipping included). When I first got word of this box I was super stoked, since they promised that 90% of the items would be vegan. (It said so in their FAQ’s.) So when I got my box and found that only 4 out of the 7 products were in fact vegan, I was pretty bummed. Thankfully, customer service was great and offered to send me additional vegan snacks at no charge (even though I requested to cancel my account). I just […]
The long-awaited Ecocentric Mom Mystery box finally shipped this week! (I know, I know… Please try to contain your excitement.) Here’s the deal: Every so often Ecocentric Mom announces a “bonus” box available for a one-time purchase of just $25. They promise that it’ll be jam-packed with eco-friendly essentials for both mamma & baby. The last time they offered one of these was back in June, and jam-packed it WAS. You can see that review right here. It was good. Very, very good. So when they made this mystery box announcement over the summer, I knew I had to sign […]
October has been a really good month for boxes so far. First, I got the awesome Vegan Presence package full of my favorite autumn goodies, and then I get this Taste Trunk box in which ALL of the products happen to be vegan. Woohoo! You probably already know the deal, but if not, Taste Trunk is a monthly food/snack subscription that offers 4 different themed boxes (“trunks”) to choose from: “Sweet Trunk”, “Health Trunk”, “Gourmet Trunk”, and “BBQ Trunk”. If you’re not sure which one to try, there’s an option on their website to switch trunks whenever you want. You can change it […]
Okay, so after having kind of a so-so package last month, Vegan Presence totally made up for it with October’s offerings. From the festive Halloween-y ribbons, to the items they chose, it was probably my favorite package from them yet. Some of my favorite things to enjoy during the autumn season (and, well, anytime) are hot tea, good chocolate, and scented candles… ALL of which can be found in this month’s Vegan Presence package. Hells. Yes.
I know, I know… It’s not even Halloween yet and here I am posting about Christmas ornaments. Perhaps I’m a wee bit ahead of the game, but when Dixie Midwest contacted me about reviewing one of their personalized ornaments, I just couldn’t say no. What can I say… I’m a sucker for things with my babies faces on ’em. 😉
Healthy Surprise is a monthly subscription box for snacks — vegan/gluten-free/soy-free, all-natural-super-fantastic ones! It’s a great box for those with food allergies, vegans (hey, that’s me!), or anyone who wants to snack a little healthier. Oh, did I mention that all of the snacks are FULL SIZE? Yep. They sure are.

September marked the first anniversary — I mean, “snackiversary” — of the Vegan Cuts Snack Box! Woo! Although I don’t currently have a subscription, I was lucky enough to WIN this box in a giveaway over at another blog. So awesome! Vegan Cuts offers two different, 100% vegan & cruelty free monthly box options: The Snack Box and the Beauty Box. Both are just $19.95 a month (free shipping!) and deliver a fun assortment of snackin’ & beautify-in’ essentials. Most of the products in the Snack Box are also gluten-free (roughly 80% of ’em). Okay, let’s see what was inside this celebratory […]
Every year, since Mike and I have met, we’ve gone to the The Great Pumpkin Farm. It is thee ultimate “autumn fun times” destination in Western New York. Pumpkins, tractor rides, cider, face painting, corn mazes, carnival food — this place has it all. Last year, the girls were only 2 months old when the festivities went down, so Mike & I took the trip sans kiddos. I felt guilty not taking them, but they were way too small to truly appreciate the autumn-y awesomeness. This year they were thirteen months old. Surely they were old enough to enjoy a fun day […]
This is the first time I’ve gotten my Ecocentric Mom box totally spoiler-free! I was surprised to find it on my doorstep so soon and couldn’t wait to tear into it. (No really, these things truly do excite me! Sad, I know.) Ecocentric Mom offers 3 different box options: Mom-to-Be, Mom, and Mom & Baby (for babies up to 18 months). Every box contains products that are eco-friendly, natural, organic, and often vegan-friendly. Subscriptions are $21/month (or less with longer commitments) and shipping is free. I always get the “Mom & Baby” box, because I’d much rather get stuff for […]
e-Sentials is a brand new subscription service for that oh-so-wonderful “time of the month”. They want to save you the trouble of having to go out and replenish your stock of “essentials” every month. (Or worse, making your bf/husband do it.) There are 3 different package options to choose from: $10 for 20 pads/tampons of your choice. $13 for the pads/tampons and 3 disposable razors. $16 for the pads/tampons, 3 disposable razors, and deodorant. Packages are totally customizable — you choose how many pads and/or tampons you need, if you want light/heavy/etc., and whether or not you need extras (there […]
Bestowed is a monthly subscription box that features healthy snacks & foods carefully chosen by nutritionist/author Heather Bauer. Boxes are only $19/month (including shipping!) and contain a nice variety of different snacks, food items, and beverages. While the box isn’t geared towards any particular diet, I was pleased to find many vegan items in this month’s selection. (Yay!) September’s theme is “Back to School” and features lots of kid/lunchbox-friendly products. While my girls are too young for the whole “bagged lunch” thing, I’m more than happy to eat everything myself. 😉 So what’s in the box? Read on!
Matilda Jane Clothing is a mom-owned company that specializes in uniquely designed girl’s clothing and accessories. Their collections are fun, whimsical, and sized to fit everyone from babies to mommas. Needless to say, when Matilda Jane contacted me to see if I’d be interested in reviewing one of their outfits, I totally jumped on it. Buying clothes for twins is NOT cheap! 😉 Twice a year, in the spring and fall, a new line is released. The outfit I received is from their Paint By Numbers collection, which can be found here. Chloe was kind enough to be my model […]
“Twins? Ugh! Better you than me!” “Oh boy, twins? You must really have your hands full.” “Uh oh! Double trouble!” When you have twins, everyone feels the need to tell you how screwed you are. How your life is over. How they’ll age you faster than you can imagine. How happy they are that they didn’t get stuck with a similar, awful fate. Well guess what, haters? HAVING TWINS IS EFFING AWESOME. And here are my top 10 reasons why… 10. A new appreciation for BOGO sales. Sure, everyone likes a good deal — especially when it involves buying something […]
