Subscription Box

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!

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*

Bookcase Club: May

I know last month I said I wished BookCase Club would send more classics, but I am 100% satisfied with my daughter’s May box. I have never seen or heard of any of the books in this month’s box, nor did I recognize any of the authors.  We received a copy of The Grasshopper & The Ants by Jerry Pinkney, Olga The Cloud by Nicoletta Costa, Pest In Show by Victoria Jamieson, and The House That’s Your Home by Sally Lloyd-Jones. The total approximate value of the books in this month’s box is $39.25. I have never read any of these books personally, but my daughter mentioned seeing The Grasshopper & The Ants at our library. I found that this month’s books weren’t just silly little children’s books, but they each had their own special message to send. For example, The Grasshopper & The Ants teaches the value of hard work and sharing!  Olga The Cloud, in my opinion, was about finding a place to fit in. I am extremely glad I had the chance to read these four new stories.

*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.*

Sun Basket: Healthy Home Cooking Made Easy

As a working mom, I hardly ever have time to cook a healthy meal. Going to a local drive through is just so much quicker than going shopping for ingredients and cooking a full meal. At least that’s what I thought until I was introduced to Sun Basket. Sun Basket is the leading healthy meal kit delivery company that delivers pre-measured ingredients and easy-to-read recipes straight to my door! That means all I have to do is go online, pick my meals for the week, and Sun Basket does the rest! Sun Basket offers two menus which include a Classic Menu for 2-4 servings, and a Family Menu with 4+ servings. Of course I personally needed to order the Family Menu to feed my small army. This week I was amazed at the Menu options for my Family Plan. The Week of May 8th, I was offered Turkey Kebabs with Carrot-Snap Pea Salad and Lemon Couscous, Miso Ramen Bowls with Braised Tofu and Bok Choy, Two-bean Chili Mac ’n’ Cheese with Lime Yogurt, Vietnamese Steak Stir-fry with Jasmine Rice, or Sesame-crusted Chicken with Roasted New Potato Salad. I let my daughter choose our two meals for the week and she chose the Turkey Kebabs and the Sesame-crusted Chicken.

When my box arrived I was amazed at how neatly everything was packaged. Everything I needed to complete my meals were pre-measured and in the box along with the full recipes. We decided to try the Sesame-crusted Chicken first since that was my daughter’s first choice. The recipe was advertised as 4 servings, 520 Calories/Serving, and a 30 – 40 minute cook time. Along with the instructions, this meal came with nutrition facts as well as some tips to get the kids involved (toss the potatoes with oil before roasting, juice the lemon, mix the dressing, etc). Since this was my first Sun Box recipe, I must admit that I was a bit nervous of the outcome. I actually have very little cooking skills, and can barely boil an egg properly.

Much to my surprise, my completed meal looked exactly like the photo on the Sun Basket website! I was able to follow the instructions given and make a chef-worthy dish for my family! The instructions were extremely details and the pre-measured ingredients prevented me from making any mistakes! Although this was a big concern of mine, it was not the final test. My daughter, Kinsley, is extremely picky. Although she chose the recipe herself and helped prepare the meal, there was no telling whether or not she would actually eat it. *Insert long dramatic drumroll here* She ate EVERY BITE and then asked for seconds! I decided to save the recipe card so that I can recreate this recipe down the line because it was such a huge hit with everyone! Although this recipe was supposed to serve 4, we had quite a bit left over that I was able to save for my lunch the next day!PicMonkey Collage

We completed our Turkey Kebabs the next night (not pictured), and again it was a huge success. I can’t wait to see what recipes will be on the menu these next few weeks! Hopefully they will be as amazing as these first two were! My family will definitely be Sun Basket returning customers!

Sun Basket Pricing

Classic Menu: 3 recipes per week and has 2 servings per meal. This menu offers Chef’s Choice, Vegetarian, Gluten Free, Paleo, and Rise And Shine options. Classic Menu starts at $11.99 per meal.

Graze Box

I have seen my fair share of subscription boxes, but I have never seen a HEALTHY subscription box! Instead of being filled with fattening sugary snacks, this box is filled with healthy alternatives!  Every snack in the box has a special benefit such as essential vitamins, minerals, and protein! Each snack is also boxed up in perfect portion controlled packs so I don’t have to worry about overeating.  I really love how Graze gives me the option to completely customize my box! If I don’t like a certain snack, I can simply trash it using their rating system and I will never be sent that snack again! Aside from their healthy snacks, their packaging is also super natural! Their cardboard boxes are made with 100% recyclable material, their booklets are 100% biodegradable, and their  skewers are made from untreated bamboo! This subscription box is fantastic from the inside out! In my box I received a pack of black pepper popcorn, original fruity flapjacks, sweet & spicy beet crunch, peanut butter & jelly, sesame garlic crunch, apple crumble, and peanut butter dippers. The original fruity flapjacks has to be my favorite product of the six, although all of them were huge hits. I ended up purchasing a 6 pack of the flapjacks from the Graze Box store! I can’t wait to see what I will get in my next box!
