Subscription Box

Ellie: August Box

Ellie just announced that they will be offering two subscription plans instead of one! Now Ellie subscribers can get three products a month for $39.95 versus the full box for $49.95! This month I received the three product box to see how it would differ from the regular box. I definity was not disappointed! Instead of coming in a little box, the three product subscription came in an adorable Ellie printed bag! The pieces I received this month were a little intimidating at first, but I was surprised at how much I loved the overall look! Compared to the 5 piece box, I did miss the extra workout accessories. However I was impressed with the quality of items I got in the cheaper 3 piece box.

Products Inside This Month’s Box:

Tack Back Tank- I must say that I was a bit nervous about the sheerness of this shirt before I put it on. The back is fairly open and you can see straight through most of the back part. However I did like that it featured skinny double strap details, a shirttail hem and Dry-Wik finish. Once I put it on, I loved the fit. It wasn’t super clingy, and was extremely comfortable. I also loved that it wasn’t as sheer as I had initially thought. Although you should see my skin and bra underneath, it wasn’t overly flashy! I was able to wear it into the store after my workout without drawing too much attention to myself!

Chloe Seamless Sports Bra- This sports bra was quite intimidating when I first pulled it out of the bag. Unlike regular sports bras, this Chloe Seamless Sports Bra features strappy front details. Since I am fairly larger in the chest area, I thought that it would be way less supportive than I would need. Surprisingly it was cute AND functional! It kept the girls in place and I was impressed with how breathable the material was! The bra itself was super stylish, but paired with the Tack Back Tank you could still see the strappy details!

Seamless 7/8 Legging- Hands down my favorite product from this month’s box! These seamless 7/8 Leggings are to die for! These leggings are so lightweight it feels like wearing nothing at all! The subtle mesh insets along the sides offer extra ventilation which I find allowed me to be much cooler overall during my run. The heather jacquard pattern is super adorable and was a great touch to these  moisture-wicking leggings! I can pair these with a simple sports bra, or full on workout gear. Either way I am super comfortable!I made room for these in the very front of my closet!

Bookcase Club: July

I absolutely loved this month’s Bookcase Club box. I found that this month’s box had a theme of nurture and compassion. We received a copy of Don’t Eat The Baby by Amy Young, The Only Child by Guojing, The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn, and The Dark by Lemony Snicket.  The total approximate value of the books in this month’s box is $48.06. This box surpassed the last few boxes in my opinion. Lemony Snicket is one of my favorite authors, so it was nice to see an author that I was extremely familiar with. I also loved that there was a picture book included in this month’s selection. I had never heard of The Kissing Hand, however thanks to Bookcase Club it is one of our new favorites. Don’t Eat The Baby was a silly addition, but had a nice heartwarming plot which stuck with the box’s theme. It is safe to say that this box is one of my favorite boxes thus far.  My daughter hasn’t put these books down since they arrived! 

*Subscriptions start at $9.99 a month, and come with at least 3 hand picked booked. Kids BookCase.Club offers boxes for newborn- 2 year olds, 2-4 year olds, and 5-6 year olds.*

Ellie: July Box

I finally received my July Ellie box, and I am super pumped to share the products with everyone! If you’ve never heard of the Ellie box, it is basically a monthly subscription box for those of us with an active lifestyle. Each month they send out 5 awesome products which usually consists of a bra, a top, leggings/capris, an accessory, and a piece of equipment. Unlike most subscription boxes Ellie allows their subscribers to see what is inside of the box ahead of time. Don’t like what you see? Then Ellie will allow you to skip that month’s box! I am SUPER happy that I didn’t pass on this month’s box, because the products are beyond amazing!

Products Inside This Month’s Box:

Ab Wheel ($13)– Other than being an absolutely adorable color, this Ab Wheel kicks some serious butt. I love how this product is compact and portable, which means I can take it anywhere, and it doesn’t take up a ton of extra space. One of the main reasons I don’t own exercise equipment is because I don’t have any room for it! At first I was a little skeptical about this little tiny product, but BOY was I underestimating it! The MARIKA ab wheel not only strengthens the core but helps tones shoulders & arms! After a few days of use, I can already feel the burn in my arms! My arms are one of my biggest problem areas, so I can’t wait to see the outcome after a few months! 

Propel Singlet Top ($45)– I was a little nervous about trying out this Propel Singlet Top, I must admit. I am not a huge fan of mesh backs, so the full mesh back scared me a little. After putting it on, I was eating my words! This thing is ridiculously comfortable! It is 90% Polyester and 10% Spandex, so it was super lightweight. Since it is semi-fitted, I liked that it didn’t hug my body. When I workout I like to use lightweight and loose clothing to feel more comfortable. I must admit, I fell in love with this almost immediately.

Alexa Progressive Space Dye Capri ($55)– I couldn’t wait to throw these bad boys on when I got my box in! After seeing a preview of them on the Ellie website, I knew I was going to love them! Just like the Propel Singlet Top, these capris are 90% Polyester and 10% Spandex. They hug my body, but not enough to make me uncomfortable. They are also extremely lightweight and breathable, which is always a plus when it comes to workout gear.

Cooling Towel ($4)– I have seen cooling towels everywhere, but never had the chance to get my hands on one. This Bally Cooling Towel goes above and beyond what I expected! This no-drip fabric is perfect for keeping cool during a workout. Using it was super simple. All I had to do was soak the towel in cool water, wring out excess water, and snap the towel to activate cooling. This towel stayed cool during my entire hour long workout, and sat perfectly on my neck the entire time. Awesome little workout accessory for sure!

Zobha Low Impact Sports Bra- I don’t have a product link for the Zobha products inside of this month’s box, however the Low Impact Sports Bra was one of my favorite July products! Not only did it fit like a charm, but it held everything in place during my workout! It was extremely comfortable and I was surprised at how breathable it was. I didn’t feel suffocated by the fabric whatsoever. I love the pattern and the style of this bra, because it isn’t just a plain-jane sports bra, The cuts in the back and front give it a super fun edge!

Zobah Tie Me Up- Again, I don’t have a link for this Zobha product, however these “Tie Me Up” hair ties are awesome! I have fairly thick hair so I was unsure if these would do me any good, but they worked like a charm! Not only did they hold my hair up through my entire workout, but it didn’t pull my hair or leave that annoying “rubberband ring” around my hair! These things are super comfortable, so throwing my hair up during a workout is no problem! Plus, they’re super cute so I don’t mind wearing them on my wrist throughout the day!

Woman Up Box: Don’t Worry, Be Happy

This month’s Woman Up Box theme was “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”. Everything in this box was focused around staying calm and relaxing. In this month’s box I received a tub of strawberry mint gelato sugar scrub ($15.50), a wild blackberries lip tint ($4.75), lemon mint mate tea ($9.25), two gourmet lollipops ($4.00), ready to color notecards and colored pencils ($12.00), a mala bead necklace ($24.00), a purse mirror ($4.50), and a worry stone ($3.95). That is a total box value of $77.95! I was very satisfied with the contents of this month’s box. The worry stone and mala bead necklace are both used in meditation and relaxing the mind, while the strawberry mint gelato sugar scrub is great for relaxing the body!  I was excited to find the coloring pages simply because that is one of my personal favorite activities to relax. I haven’t used all of the products in this month’s box, however I am excited to test them out. Woman Up Box hit the nail on the head when they were setting up their “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” box!

Wee Blessing: Summer 2017

Last September we reviewed Wee Blessing and it was a huge hit. Kinsley and I were super excited to get another box this year filled with summer styles! Of course we had to fill out a “Style Profile” since Kinsley’s taste in clothing had changed, but everything only took me about five minutes. After filling out all of the needed info, a personal stylist got Kinsley outfits shipped out in less than a week! In this month’s box we received a Children’s Place Miss Daisy Sunshine Tank (retails for $14.97, Wee Blessing price $7.00), an Oshkosh Yellow Flutter Skirt (retails for $18.00, Wee Blessing price $9.00), a Petit Peony Navy Set Sail Designer dress (retails for $48.00, Wee Blessing price $24.00), an Oshkosh Pink Pleated Dress (retails for $46.00, Wee Blessing price $23.00), a Jumping Beans Teal What’s Bugging You Tee (retails for $14.00, Wee Blessing price $7.00) and a Jumping Beans Teal/Gray Tiered Twirl Skort (retails for $14.00, Wee Blessing price $7.00). That is a box retail value of 154.95 that I can have for $77! That is over 50% savings! There is nothing better than SAVING money on cute clothes, except the fact that someone else did all of the hard work for me! All I have to do is circle the ones I am keeping, then send back the ones I don’t like. Once again, Wee Blessing did not disappoint because I decided to keep them all! I can’t wait to see what we get in our next box!

Bookcase Club: May

Our May Bookcase Club is short and sweet compared to past boxes. This month’s box featured a hardback copy of The Adventures of the Dish and the Spoon by Mini Grey, a hardback copy of Little Baby Buttercup by Linda Ashman, a paperback copy of Dusty to the Rescue by RH Disney and a paperback copy of Seeing Red by Sarah Stephens. The total approximate value of the books in this month’s box is $26.61. Compared to past boxes, I did feel like this one was a bit lacking. My daughter, however, would disagree. She loved seeing the two cartoon books inside, and those were the first two we sat down to read. She also loved the spin on “Hey diddle, diddle” in The Adventures of the Dish and Spoon. I have actually heard of Little Baby Buttercup before, and it was just as sweet as I had imagined. These four books were definitely hits nonetheless. Very age appropriate and perfect for my daughter.

Munchpak

I am a sucker for subscription boxes. I also have a sweet spot for, well…sweets! That is why I couldn’t pass up the chance to test out Munchpak! Munchpak is a monthly subscription box that delivers hand picked snacks from around the world! In this month’s Munchpak, I received eleven full sized snack samples. That included Crayola Sour Rainbow Belts, Hello Kitty Wafer Cookies, Walker’s Treacle Toffee, Yappari Ramune Kiwi Soda, Lotte Koala’s March, Torres Selecta Black Truffle Chips, Tregroes Butter Toffee Waffles, and many more cool snacks that I have never heard of! It was so fun trying different flavors from around the world, and I was surprised at how tasty everything was! Since all of these products are available for individual sale on the Munchpak website, I can re-order some of our favorites! I can’t wait to see what I get in my next box!

Degustabox: May

I am super excited to share this month’s Degustabox with everyone! Again, I was surprised with mostly brands that I have never heard of which is always nice. This month’s box included Mulino Bianco shortbread cookies ($2.99/bag), Skinnygirl K-Cups ($4.99/box), Pure Growth Organic Oatmeal ($2.98/box), Mutti chopped tomatoes ($2.29/can), Barilla traditional pesto ($2.99/bottle), Soy Vay soy sauce ($4.99/bottle), La Tortilla Factory flour and wheat tortillas ($2.99/bag), Mulino Bianco sfilati ($3.99/bag) Barilla pasta ($1.68/box), Chicago Vegan Co marshmallows (price unknown) and Goya lentils ($1.99/box). That is a $31.88 value which is $13.88 over the price of the box. My daughter immediately ripped open the Mulino Bianco shortbread cookies which were TO DIE FOR. I mean seriously, better than Girl Scout Cookies! We also used the Pure Growth Organic Oatmeal for breakfast and added some chopped strawberries and it was fantastic! I can’t wait to cook with some of my other products from this month’s box!

*Items in this month’s box may vary from what is seen in this post. Since not everyone owns a K-Cup machine, Degustabox is sending Chicago Vegan Co Marshmallows as a replacement*
