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.

BuddhiBox Monthly Subscription Review – May 2016 Box

BuddhiBox Monthly Subscription Review and Book Giveaway – May 2016 Box

May 2016 Box ContentsAs we embark in this election year it is becoming clear that the country is divided and needs some injection of peace and love. Every night on the news all that is seen are rally’s that turn into protests and protests that turn into arrest records.

The common thread is that the one thing we need the most, is the one thing that all yogi;s know, we need peace. There are a couple of ways to achieve peace but the easiest is to be what you want to put out into the world. I think many people forget that to be nice is not difficult and the simplest thing we can do.

Each month when I receive my monthly BuddhiBox I am reminded of this simple message. Each month I have the opportunity to review boxes (click here to see the previous reviews) and each month I can expect a nice introduction in the yoga/healthy living lifestyle. The message is always one of compassion, and understanding and living a pure life, as well as being the company’s motto.

This month continues the new box and is strong and sturdy box that is printed on all box sides. I loved that a green crinkle wrap replaced the green tissue paper, but still retained the green theme. This month came with 3 cardboard information cards that are in full color and on thick glossy card stock. The first card was the Yoga pose of “Balasana” that shows the pose in full color, as well as the benefits and directions about the pose. These pose cards are made especially for BuddhiBox by a company called Yogicards. There is a recipe for a “Strawberries Fruit of Spirit and Health” that is made using 6 ingredients  The final information card included was a box manifest and on the other side the following quote:

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.  – Lao Tzu

Sock Club – December 2015 – Review

Sock Club – December 2015 – Review & Giveaway

December 2015When you think of California, the first material that comes to mind is generally not wool. People in California tend to live in shorts, bikini tops. and flip-flops – and that is in mid-December. I am not one of these people, as I run cold all the time. I get cold while going through our local grocery store. Since I have this temperature issue, I plan accordingly – I have sweaters in the car and I always wear socks around my house at night.

Despite the warmth factor, I tend to shy away from wool due to the added weight that wool sock provide. I can honestly say that my opinion of wool socks has forever been changed from this months SockClub sock selection for the December sock.

Sock Club – November 2015 – Review

Sock Club – November 2015 – Review & Giveaway

November Sock ClubI have always been fascinated by the mere miracle that is aviation. The concept that a metal object that weighs anywhere from thousand to hundreds of thousands of pounds is able to fly is the definition of a miracle. When I think back I think my fascination is from my father and his previous career as a  pilot. Rumor has it that when I was a fussy baby instead of a car ride to calm me, my father would take me up on his plane for a flight. The result apparently was a instantly calmed baby.

Due to this love of aviation the story and mythology of Howard Hughes equally fascinates me. The legacy that Howard Hughes left was more emotional than physical and it was the legacy of dreaming. When you think of dreams and Howard Hughes, the one thing that comes to mind is the Spruce Goose. The Spruce Goose was only in flight once, for a total of 70ft off the surface of the ocean.

In honor of the November 2nd, 1947 flight, the 69th anniversary, of Howard Hughes maiden and only flight of the Spruce Goose, SockClub decided that this would be the inspiration behind the November sock.

Sock Club – September 2015 – Review & Giveaway

Sock Club SeptemberI am a sock fan and it could be said that I have a hoard level collection of socks. Jason made a comment today on my ever-growing sock collection and his surprise that I was unable to locate a pair to wear. I finally settled on a bulky pair that is to heavy for this time of year in California. I recently received a pair of socks from SockClub.com and was thrilled to see that they might be the pair I was searching for.

SockClub.com has been around over a year now and each month they send a sock and a note explaining what the inspiration behind choosing that sock was. These are an American made product – the socks are designed in Austin, Texas and manufactured in North Carolina. The company’s began when 2 friends made a bet over a corn hole match and they then began to think about what they could do with a small fortune (after all a bet had been made) and decided the answer was socks – thus Sock Club was conceived.

Sock Club – June 2015 – Review

Sock Club June 2015 The PrinceSock Club – June 2015 – Review

I have mentioned in the past my love for socks and my terrible propensity for wearing holes into them. I am proud to announce that I think the tide is starting to turn on this horrible habit, and my blog might be the reason. I have found that as a review blogger one of the items I receive for review are socks. I recently received a pair of socks from SockClub.com.

Prior to this interaction I had not heard of Sock Club, which actually surprises me for a couple reasons. The first reason is that this company has been in the online world since July of 2012, and I have not seen any ads or not heard any word of mouth about it. The second reason is that this is an American made product – the socks are designed in Austin, Texas and manufactured in North Carolina and usually these are the businesses that get the attention for being “American Made”. The final reason I was surprised is that the creation of the company is cocktail party story worthy. The company was started when 2 friends bet over a corn hole match, began to think about what they could do with a small fortune and decided the answer was socks – Sock Club was born.

Sock Club June 2015 The PrinceI received a pair called “The Prince”. The socks were packaged in a 8×11 cardboard envelope that was branded with the “Sock Club” name, leaving little to no doubt who the package was from. When I opened the envelope inside I discovered a wrapped brown bag type package with a wax seal in the middle designed as a method of closure. Also included was a letter that was made out to me that explained the inspiration for this month’s sock selection.

The Prince sock is a purple and black sock that is decorated with geometric shapes and the sock is solid black on the sole. These purple and black socks include a black 2 inch band on the upper ankle, with a thin purple 1/2 band on the cuff of the sock. The label stated that the sock is 80% cotton, 16% nylon and 4% lycra. This was a comfortable sock that was thin enough to not add any additional bulk to sometimes already tight fit shoes.

As for if the tide is turning on the holey sock situation stay tuned, until then go check out Sock Club, you won’t be disappointed.

Ozone Sock of the Month Review

Ozone Socks Mona LinenEver since I was a young girl I have LOVED socks. When I was young (and not having to purchase my own socks) I would think nothing of walking outside sans shoes, thus creating unfixable holes. The cooler looking the sock, the higher the chances that I would wear it without shoes.

Flash forward 25 years (give or take, plus or minus a few years) and now my love of socks is still present in my life but I am much more careful when I walk outside and make sure I have shoes no doubt partially due to the necessity of purchasing my own socks.

With my natural love of socks it seemed like a good “fit” to review Ozone Sock’s Sock of the Month Club. I have never been in a place where I receive socks in the mail, so this was a nice surprise amongst a pile of bills and junk mail.

BuddhiBox Monthly Subscription Review – April Box

BuddhiBox Monthly Subscription Review and Giveaway – April Box

20150225_171318Calm, Peaceful and Serene, these are all words I would use to describe yoga but not myself. I love that I get this monthly box of calm and peacefulness in my mailbox.

April BuddhiBoxA couple of months ago I had the opportunity to review the February BuddhiBox (click here to see that review) and was lucky enough to have a chance to review the new April box.

When I opened the box I was again greeted by wonderfully folded green tissue paper and 3 cardboard information cards sealed with a sticker. One card had the “Goddess Pose” pose that shows the pose as well as the benefits and cautions when using that pose. There was a recipe for a “Blueberrry Bliss Goddess Bars” that is made using only 4 ingredients (coconut, blueberries, maple syrup and vanilla beans). The final information card included was a box content listing and the following quote:

I bow to all woman. To our strength, to our softness, to our wisdom, to our beauty. – Elena Brower
