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.

One of my favorite thing during this season is to watch my cats as they watch the musical Christmas lights we have. There eyes dance around each light and as I wonder what is going through their minds, I find myself relaxing with the rhythm of their purrs.

If I know anything, it that this season is as magical for humans and cats alike. When I received the “Meowy Holidays” themed Cat Lady Box, I knew that it would be seasonally appropriate and full of holiday themed items.   Continue reading

Pet Treater Monthly Subscription Box Review – November 2016

Pet Treater Monthly Subscription Box Review – November 2016

november-2016-pet-treater-boxThere are few things that I remember loving when I was a child as much as I loved animals. I always thought it would be great to be a vet! As I have gotten older it became clear to me that I would be in a position that I would become attached to the animals that I was saving, and that would be the best quality for a vet. Despite my early career aspirations not coming to fruition I knew that the quality that made Vet Medicine not a correct choice, would make me a great Guardian.

Each day I strive to be the best Guardian and “sister” to all pets in my life, and I am attached to Meadow as if she was my own. I want the best for her, and I love spending time with her.

When I saw this months Pet Treater and the theme “Eat, Sleep and Be Thankful“, it reminded me of how thankful I was that I have a dog like Meadow I can spend time with and have special moments with, despite her living in a separate home. Continue reading

Top 9 Subscription Boxes of 2016

Our Favorite Monthly Subscription Boxes of 2016

The idea of monthly subscription boxes is not new. These monthly mailbox surprises have had many incarnations including the well known “of the month” clubs.

Today boxes tend to fall into 1 of 2 categories: Commerce commerce and Discovery commerce. The Convenience Commerce boxes are for the items you know and love and have to have them each month. On the other side you have the Discovery Boxes. These boxes exist to allow customers to discover new items that they otherwise may not have been introduced to. The boxes that we tend to review here are the Discovery boxes.

Here are my top x boxes that we received in 2016, and are excited to continue receiving in 2017.

Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome – October 2016 Review

Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome – October 2016 Review

october-box-of-awesomeThere is no denying it – the holidays are upon us and with that comes family get togethers, meals shared, photos taken and gifts given.

If you are anything like me, I tend to like 2 types of gifts. The first being the useful ones that I have been wanting. The second is “white elephant” gifts. I have discovered that while it is great to get a heart-felt gift, there is something mysterious and random about getting a gift that may or may not have any use in your life.

The downside to this gift giving is that while the “white elephant” gifts are sometimes the best part of the holiday, the fact is it is only really once a year. At least that is what I believed until I started receiving the Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome by That Daily Deal.com. Each month no theme is chosen, but rather a selection of random gender neutral items that will undoubtedly meet a need of yours or a lucky recipient.

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.
