Peaches & Petals Subscription Box – September 2016 Review

Peaches & Petals Subscription Box – September 2016 Review

september-2016-box-contentsThe concept of cute and I have never been something that fit together. I never considered things “cute” by societies standards and while that made me a little different from my peers, it also made me unique.

I believe that uniqueness is a quality that many young people are losing. People seem to be more concerned with going with the crowd rather than celebrating what makes them unique. There are many ways to be cute, while keeping your own individuality.

When I saw the September Peaches and Petals box I was happy to see a box that celebrates the concept of uniqueness. The boxes contents all revolve around the “Cuteness Overload” theme and are appropriate, and useful while always remaining in theme.

Peaches & Petals Subscription Box – August 2016 Review

August 2016 Thank You For Being a FriendWhen I was a youngster I watched a lot of television. It is this very topic that Jason and I speak of often. In a stark contrast to me he spent his time outside, riding his bike and hunting snakes. I, on the other hand spent all of my time inside, coloring or playing pretend with the television on as “company”.

At night when my father would go out and leave me to my own devices I would spend that time watching television. I had a couple of favorite shows including Mr. Belvedere, Hogan Family and The Golden Girls. To be honest thought Golden Girls was above my humor level, yet I loved the relationship between the 4 seemingly different women.

When I saw the August Peaches and Petals box I was reminded of all those hours shared with the Golden Girls. The boxes contents all revolve around the “Thank You for Being a Friend” theme and are appropriate, and useful while always remaining in theme.

Peaches & Petals Subscription Box – July 2016 Review

Peaches & Petals Subscription Box – July 2016 Review

Peaches and Petals July 2016As 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

Peaches & Petals Subscription Box – April 2016 Review

April Showers Peaches and Petals April 2016 Box Contents 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.

BuddhiBox Monthly Subscription Review and Giveaway – February 2015 Box

If you are anything like me you know A LOT of people who love yoga. If you do know one of these enthusiasts I would highly recommend getting them a BuddhiBox monthly subscription. This carefully curated box of items help to enhance any yoga session or any post yoga session.

20150225_171318I was unsure what to expect in my BuddhiBox, and I can tell you at the very least I was not disappointed. The box was a perfect 6x6x6 square of corrugated thin cardboard.

20150225_171949When I opened the box I was greeted by wonderfully folded green tissue paper and 3 cardboard information cards sealed with a sticker. One card had the “Wheel/Upward Bow” pose that shows the pose as well as the benefits and cautions when using that pose. There was a recipe for a “H2O Nutrition Vegetarian Taco Salad” that is made in a mason jar and super easy to make. The final information card included was a box content listing and the following quote:

love is the bridge between you and everything – Rumi

As I dug into contents of the box I was overcome with a sense that I was discovering the greatest new craze. I have included individual reviews of the items in the box and the box overall. Included in the box was the following items:
