Peaches & Petals Subscription Box: September 2017 Review

Peaches & Petals Subscription Box: September 2017 Review

It is barely mid-October and I need a break – the holidays are approaching and with that comes hustle and bustle and busy days ahead. In this coming season of giving it is easy to forget to take a moment for ourselves. When I received the September Peaches and Petals box was “Sip Tea & Feel Like A…Queen” which was a great way to remind people (me in particular) to take a moment for themselves.

Numi Organic Tea: Holistic Herbal Teas Review

Numi Organic Tea: Holistic Herbal Tea Review + Giveaway

One of the benefits of blogging is that I get to try products that I normally would not have the opportunity to sample. About a month ago I got to sample the 6 tea collection from Numi Tea. Had I not had this opportunity, I would not have tried these teas.

After a long day of writing, there is nothing more relaxing than a cup of tea. Recently I received a sampling of Numi Tea and their Organic Holistic Teasan Tea and was so impressed that I felt the need to do a formal review.

Effie’s Homemade Tea Biscuits Review

Effie’s Homemade: Cocoa-Cakes, Nut Cakes and Oat Cakes Review + Giveaway

Relaxation can be hard to come by in this modern and busy world that we live in. When I do have a moment of quiet and relaxation, I want to enjoy the moment. One of my indulgences for relaxation is tea, a good book and cookies.

Since I am always looking for new cookies to add to my tea snack collection, and when I saw Effie’s Homemade cakes, I knew that they would be the perfect accessory for my moments of relaxation.

Enjoying Tea: Infuser Mug and Top Sellers Review

Enjoying Tea: Infuser Mug and Top Selling Tea’s Review and Giveaway

Infuser Mug and Best SellersAs a blogger and writer I keep odd hours. During these long hours the last thing I want to do is pump my body full of the energy drinks that I do during the early hours.

I have discovered that while highly caffeinated drinks are not a realistic option, an item like tea is a viable option. Back in May of 2015, I reviewed a couple of items from EnjoyingTea.com and thought highly of the company. Since I loved the tea I recived so much I was thrilled to recieve a couple of items for review.

Peaches & Petals November Box Subscription Review

Peaches & Petals Subscription Box – November 2015 Review and Giveaway

November Peaches and Petals OverviewOne of my favorite thing about monthly subscription boxes is the random curated surprise that await the recipient. I love the unique items included and the useful items. I think that after almost a year of reviewing boxes, my favorite part is seeing the theme of the contents. I appreciate when I box has a unifying them that ties it together.

Peaches and Petals is taking this concept of a unifying theme and bringing it to each monthly box. This is a subscription box that caters to ‘fun. flirty, fashionable vintage and modern lifestyles’. What does that mean to you the subscriber? It means that each month you will receive 3-5 items hand selected by the Peaches and Petals team and can range in items from creams, nail polish, makeup, scarves and bags  or/and a vintage piece of jewelry. There could be other items included, depending on the box and theme for the month. The November 2015 box seems to have a unifying theme of “Infinity”.

Enjoying Tea Review and Giveaway

 Enjoying Tea Review and Giveaway

Enjoying Tea Variety Sample and Smart Tea MakerDrinking tea is something I have done since I was in my mid teens. Tea is one of those things that help me relax after a long day, or during the less pleasant times of the month I encounter.

I drink iced tea throughout the day but rarely have hot tea. This has begun to change as I get older, and find a cup before bed is quite relaxing. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to the use the Smart Tea Maker to brew the tea sampler they sent to me.

I was able to sample the Variety Sampler, which includes the following flavors:Enjoying Tea Variety Sampler

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

Organic Dandelion Root Tea by Kiss Me Organics Review

Organic Dandelion Root Tea by Kiss Me Organics Review

Kiss Me Organic Dandelion TeaI love happy colorful flowers and dandelion’s are one of the most colorful and happy flowers there is. Up until recently I just thought that dandelions were pretty flowers but was happily surprised to learn that they also provide many health benefits. I have always been a fan of hot tea, mostly to help ease sore muscles or to help me drift to dreamland so it never really occurred to me that tea could also be so healthy for me and taste good.

I am a person who likes to read the outside boxes of products I purchase (or review) and this tea was no exception. The first thing that got my attention on the box were the health benefits, because as I have said in previous posts, the big birthday is looming this summer. This Organic Dandelion Root Tea supports healthy digestion as well aids in the detoxification of your liver and kidneys.

Organic Dandelion Root TeaThe Organic Dandelion Root Tea comes with 20 individually sealed wrapped tea bags. The first smell that I came across when I opened the box was cinnamon, and as the tea brewed I could smell the cinnamon. There are no instructions on the box in regards to the steeping time, so began with a 4 minutes and then just added time the stronger I wanted it. It ended up with a 5 minutes, 20 second steep time and a nice red color, but again, this is my personal preference. Each packet of tea contains 2 mg of caffeine free, vegan and USDA certified Organic Dandelion Root leaves.
