Peaches & Petals Subscription Box – January 2017 Review

Peaches & Petals Subscription Box – January 2017 Review

There is funny thing that happens, when the calendar switches over to the new year, it is almost as if the reset button has been hit. There is a general feeling that with the new year comes new opportunities to try something new, engage in a new hobby or changing entire habits.

While I have the best intentions each new year I have little ability to carry through with resolutions much longer than the first month of the year. The one thing that the new year can do is bring new opportunities and new surprises, which is my resolution for the new year.

One of the best surprises that I have discovered are monthly subscription boxes. Since the theme for the January Peaches and Petals boxes was “2017 Brings New Surprises” it seemed very timely and appropriate for my outlook on 2017. Each items are appropriate, and useful while constantly remaining in theme.

Good Earth Beauty: Chocolate Amour Duo Giveaway

Good Earth Beauty: Chocolate Amour Duo Giveaway

When I think of Valentine’s Day, I immediately think of a box of chocolates. When I was young I remember my father had back to back meetings, and despite every year prior, this particular year I did not get the box of chocolates I normally received.

I went to to sleep that Valentines night, thinking that my father forgot about the holiday – but the joke was on me. When I woke up that next morning I not only had chocolate waiting for me, but a stuffed cat (that I still have 25 + years later). It was, and still is, one of my favorite Valentine’s gifts

Recently I was sent the Good Earth Beauty’s Chocolate Amour Duo and smelled it, I was taken back to that special moment years before. The bonus –  you also have an opportunity to win a set! Continue reading

Peaches & Petals Subscription Box – December 2016 Review

Peaches & Petals Subscription Box – December 2016 Review

To say the holidays are a busy time is an understatement of epic proportions, from Thanksgiving to New Years, the days are packed.

My favorite thing about this time of year is seeing family and friends that we normally do not get to see. We get to meet babies born, important significant others and breaking bread with loved ones.

When I saw the December Peaches and Petals boxes theme I was reminded of the approaching days since it was a “Jingle and Mingle” theme that the box would revolve around. Each items are appropriate, and useful while constantly remaining in theme.

Peaches & Petals Subscription Box – November 2016 Review

Peaches & Petals Subscription Box – November 2016 Review

When the temperature drops, cold is something that I am familiar with, almost too well. Sadly, my husband and I run at two different temperatures which at times makes for a frustrating and heat variant home.

One of my favorite ways to stay warm is with blankets (I have many stashed throughout hte storage areas in my house), hot beverages and hot showers. I have found that if I can get my core temperature up, I will stay warmer longs.

Upon receipt of the November Peaches and Petals box, I was excited to see a blanket greet me when I opened the box. The theme was “Let’s Smores and Cuddle” and all the items would revolve around this central idea. As with previous months, each item are appropriate, and useful while constantly remaining in theme.

I have mentioned in the past that I was raised by a single father and this was simultaneously the best way and worst way to grow up. The worst part comes in when we are talking about my monthly period and the coming of age that every girl encounters. This was a “period” of adjustment for me, and things were new and at times scary.

I mention this overly embarrassing time period of my life to remind myself that it can and does get easier and better. One thing that I have recently found that makes it better is the monthly arrival of a box, with your monthly visitor in mind. I recently had the opportunity review Swaag/Tom Box, it is named TOM after the letters stand for “time of month” box. Each month they send your choice of sanitary product, as well as makeup, jewelery and chocolates.

Upon sign-up you will be asked a series of questions that include things such as what your favorite brand of products is, what is your skin type, what is your style, hair color and eye color as well as a couple other questions that allow them to curate a box with your specifications.
