Cat Lady Box Monthly Subscription Review and Giveaway – August 2015
I have said in a previous review that just because I have copious amounts of photos on my phone I am not a crazy cat lady – I retract the part of that statement that states the word crazy. I hereby admit I might be a cat lady but not a crazy one.
Let’s take a closer look at the facts in front of me. I love anything feline themed extending to the items I collect and what I decorate my environment with, but this does not make me crazy. While it might be a fact that I have more pictures of Maggee and Murfee then I do of family, friends, nature and review product photos combined, this does not make me crazy. If I can work my cats into casual conversations (or reviews) I will, but this does not make me crazy. What truly makes me crazy is the term “Crazy Cat Lady” – we are simply “Cat Ladies”. It is my belief that just because we love our cats that does not mean that we are crazy, obsessed maybe, but not crazy.
In support of cat ladies everywhere crazy or no, I am happy to say that this is the third month of Cat Lady Box and it is just as good as the previous month I reviewed, (see that review here). The first thing that I noticed was that in the previous months the logo had been hand stamped on the box, therefore making the image darker in some spots and lighter in others, and this month they are printed on the box. The result is a logo that pops, is sharp and attention-getting.

Geek Fuel Monthly Subscription – June 2015 Review
I graduated high school in 1994 and that puts my late teen/adolescent years spent in the early 1990’s. I am most definitely a child of the 90’s – I loved baby doll dresses, I enjoyed the rising popularity of boy bands and I loved the television and media of this bygone era.
The 1990’s were notable in the media with books being turned into movies, such as Jurassic Park and the rise of the side scrolling platformer games. The Teenage Mutant Turtles were popular as were the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. The X-files was on television and the we saw the rise of child themed cartoons with a definite adult theme (think Beavis and Butthead).
I mention all these icons of this era because what is old is new again. Amazingly after almost 20-25 years these legends of the 90’s are returning with a 2015 twist. The special effects driven highly anticipated Jurassic World is now in theaters, the Teenage Mutant Turtles can also be found in theaters. There has been confirmation that X-Files with Moulder and Scully is returning promising to be filled on their past 20 years.
Geek Fuel’s Monthly Subscription Service launched in December 2014 and is a monthly gaming/geek themed subscription box service. The box is mailed monthly, around the 20th, in a red box labeled with the Geek Fuel logo. Each box contains a t-shirt that you can only get from having a monthly box subscription.
BuddhiBox Monthly Subscription Review and Giveaway – April Box
Calm, 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.
A 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
