Peaches & Petals Subscription Box – July 2016 Review
As has been mentioned in the past July is a special month because it is my birthday month. My day is almost smack dab in the middle of the month (the 13th if you were wondering) which means it is in the middle of July.
With the middle of July comes the thoughts of summer such as the beach, sand, water, sun, late nights, warm nights and ice drinks. While I have never been a beach girl, I live close to the beach and on breezy days can even smell the ocean air.
When I saw the July Peaches and Petals box I knew that summer was here. The boxes contents all revolve around the “Dance to the Music” theme and are appropriate, and useful while always remaining in theme for the longer summer days!
Peaches & Petals Subscription Box – April 2016 Review
Living in San Diego the concept of rain can be foreign to many residents. The biggest problem is that because wet road conditions are infrequent, when they do occur they bring the slickness to the surface.
When I was 16 I got in an accident on one of those rare rainy nights. Admittedly I was driving to fast for road conditions and the car did many flips and slammed into a brick wall. While my car did not survive, I did and I learned to respect the rain and road.
I never let the accident scare me from driving in the rain, and in fact now I love and look forward to the rain. I love the sound on my roof, and the rush as it sweeps down my gutters and onto the street. I love to watch it roll down the hill, like a stream missing fish. This love of the rain is not expressed often, despite weather forecasts saying otherwise.
Since it is April and I am missing my showers, I was very happy when I saw that the April Peaches and Petals box. The boxes contents all revolve around the “April Showers” theme and are appropriate, and useful while remaining in theme. Each month that I receive Peaches and Petals I am more impressed with the items included in the boxes.
Peaches & Petals Subscription Box – March 2016 Review
When I was a teenager I discovered the wonder of paint and the versatility. One day I was at the home improvement ship with my father and I saw the paint department. My father, never one to squash my creative spirit, told me I can purchase any color I wanted for my bedroom.
Lucky for my father, I never went through a black phase, and I always loved color. That simple act of creativity began a 10 year oddessy into paint colors and learning about the importance of primer when covering dark colors with light.
As I got older and moved out of my childhood bedroom I realized that it was not realistic to repaint each wall in my house. The problem was that I wanted color in my environment, so I began looking for cost-effective alternatives. Today I express my love of color in the knives on our counter, the plates we eat one, the pillowcases on our bed, the boxes we use as decorative storage and anything else where color is an option.
Since I love color so much, I could not wait to see the March Peaches and Petals box. Each month there is a full color postcard that gives a “teaser” about the next month. When I saw in February’s box March’s theme of “Live Life in Color”, I was excited. Each month Peaches and Petals is taking the concept of a monthly subscription box and sending a monthly treat to their subscribers.
Peaches & Petals Subscription Box – February 2016 Review and Giveaway
I will be honest and let you in on a secret – it takes a lot to really impress me and make me giddy with excitement. One of these things that does accomplish this is candy scented products. I love the smell of sugar and sweet and the sweetness it evokes. I have never been a girly-girl, but there is something that is not girl, but nostalgic about candy.
With the right piece of candy, or smell, it can take you back to a time long forgotten. The memories we have can be evoked by smell, and most of us have a sweet memory tied to a sweet smell.
Since February is the month synonymous with sweetness and love, I loved seeing the February Peaches and Petals box. In case you are wondering, Peaches and Petals is taking the concept of a monthly subscription box with value and making a monthly lifestyle box.
This is a monthly box that caters to ‘fun. flirty, fashionable vintage and modern lifestyles’. What this means is that as the subscriber each month you will receive 3-5 items hand selected by the Peaches and Petals team. The items can range from books, household items, nail polish, makeup, scarves or/and something you never imagined. Additional and other items can be included, depending on the box and theme for the month.
