Unicorn Dream Box June 2018

Unicorn Dream Box is a monthly subscription that will help to satisfy any cravings you may have for all things unicorn.  They will send out a mix of makeup, stationery, decor, and accessories.  There will also be a treat in there.  They offer two different sizes of box, Dream Mail that will send 3-4 items and the Dream Box that sends out 6-9 items.  Boxes start at $19.95 and do go down with longer plans.  There is an additional shipping charge to Canada.  I happen to love unicorns so getting this box was a bit of a no-brainer for me.

20180630_205145

Once again we have the rainbow bag to contain all the goodies.

20180630_205207

This month they went back to having an info card that lists all the items I can expect to find for this month.

20180630_205327

Unicorn Bracelet-$8.00

This bracelet is on a rainbow neon cord and you just tie it onto your wrist.  I have really small wrists and this does fit me but if you had larger ones you might have a bit of a problem.

20180630_205349

Rainbow Candy-$1.50

This is a fun lollipop!  So far all of the lollies have gone to my children and I’m thinking this will follow suit.  I just don’t need any more sugar in my life and these are huge to eat.

20180630_205255

Unicorn Drink Holder-$9.00

SO this is amazing!  I am going to have to plop myself in the kid’s pool outside just so I can use this.  It is inflatable and after reading the back of it, it recommends holding your drink in the bath with it so that’s an even easier way for me to put this to use.

20180630_205245

Unicorn Lip Balm-$10.00

In what may come as a surprise to you, this is not the only one of these I own…..one of my co-workers gave me this as a gift one year, mostly because they are awesome.  This has cotton candy lip balm inside the unicorn head and it’s great.

20180630_205219

Key Chain-$12.00

I think using this will guarantee that my Hubby will never use my keys ever again.  It is soft pink and has a reflective silver head and tail.  This is going on my keys right now, sorry Hawaii memento.

This box is even greater than I was hoping it would be.  I love the items in it and the mix of things was perfect.  The value this month is $40.50. The box is just fun and whimsical and will give me a good blast of unicorn for the few months I receive it.  If you want to get your own bit of unicorns click here to go to CrateJoy and search them out.

20180615_195645

The bright rainbow wrapping is back this month holding all of the lovely surprises.  There is not an info card this month, I hope that’s not going to be the new normal.

20180615_195710

First out of the bag was this glorious unicorn stuffy!  She is baby pink and has a purple shimmery horn.  I should probably give this to one of my children but that is not going to happen.  She makes me happy.

20180615_195809

These are three pastel unicorn crayons.  These are also pretty awesome but I have less of an issue letting the girl have these to use.  I don’t do much colouring and these should be used, not just sit on a shelf and get hard and useless.

20180615_195823

This lovely thing is a Clarifying Face Mask with a unicorn pattern printed on it.  That way you can become a unicorn while you are making yourself more beautiful.  I love these character masks, they are so much fun!

20180615_195845

This is a day planner.  Inside it is broken into weeks but they left blank so you can decide when you want to start the calendar.  It is very cute and I might have to put it to use once the one I am using right now.

There are two sheets of stickers that came in the bag.  Both of these can be used in the planner and will be!

20180615_195904

Lastly, we have the candy that they promise to include.  We have a gummy rainbow and a rainbow candy stick.  Both fun and delicious!

This box is even greater than I was hoping it would be.  I love the items in it and the mix of things was perfect.  The box is just fun and whimsical and will give me a good blast of unicorn for the few months I receive it.  If you want to get your own bit of unicorns click here to go to CrateJoy and search them out.

Unicorn Dream Box April 2018

Unicorn Dream Box is a monthly subscription that will help to satisfy any cravings you may have for all things unicorn.  They will send out a mix of makeup, stationery, decor, and accessories.  There will also be a treat in there.  They offer two different sizes of box, Dream Mail that will send 3-4 items and the Dream Box that sends out 6-9 items.  Boxes start at $19.95 and do go down with longer plans.  There is an additional shipping charge to Canada.  I happen to love unicorns so getting this box was a bit of a no-brainer for me.

My Dream Mail showed up in a mailer bag.  Inside of that, it was carefully wrapped in bubble wrap.  Once we got past that there was a bright rainbow bag that was holding the goodies.

20180501_135849

They include an info card that tells you all of the items that you can expect to find in your bag and the value of those items.  There is also the social media links in case you want to get hold of them.

20180501_135928

Unicorn Liquid Pencil Case-$12.00

This is amazing!  This pencil case has a water-filled front that is filled with stars and unicorns and other cutouts.  This makes me so happy you can’t even imagine.  I shall take it to work and drive my boss crazy with it!

20180501_135942

Unicorn Nail Stickers-$12.00

These are pretty fun.  I never think to use nail stickers when I paint my nails but I might have to give the unicorns a try.  My nails might not be big enough to use many of them though.

Unicorn Pool Float-$16.00

I tend to see this as more of a beach ball then a float but that’s just me.  This is the most ridiculous and awesome thing I’ve ever seen.  I have no idea what I will do with it but it’s fun and I like it.

20180501_140306

Star Pen-$3.00

This a black pen with a star cap.  Not much else to say about it but I love pens so this will join my collection.

20180501_140258

Rainbow Erasers-$2.00

There are six little erasers in this bag.  They are mostly useless but very bright and I’ll line them up somewhere.

Candy-$3.00

There were two pieces of candy on the box, the rainbow is gummy and then there is a twisted lollipop.  I never say no to candy so I’ve already eaten half of these.

This box is even greater than I was hoping it would be.  I love the items in it and the mix of things was perfect.  The box is just fun and whimsical and will give me a good blast of unicorn for the few months I receive it.  This month the box value was $48.00 which is nice compared to the price.  If you want to get your own bit of unicorns click here to go to CrateJoy and search them out.

Bitchy Box TOM February 2018

Bitchy Box is a TOM box with a difference.  They don’t provide feminine hygiene items, but instead items to help you get through that time of the month.  They will fill the box with a variety of sweet treats, salty snacks, and handpicked gifts.  They endeavor to make sure you don’t stab anyone while you are riding some fun hormonal shifts.  They have 3,6, or 12-month plans available, starting at $66.00, plus shipping to Canada.  I had seen some other people’s boxes from them and thought they looked fun so I’m trying them out.

This is my last box from them so I hope it’s good!  Everything was safely packed in tissue paper and nothing looked damaged or broken.

The info card has the list of items on the front page, recipes in the middle, and all the social media contacts on the back.

Harebrained “Big Trouble In Little ‘Gina” Period Panties-$12.99

These are not one of the ones I’ve been hoping for but they are still pretty fun.  It never hurts to have Kurt Russell on your bum.  These are the same as all the other period panties in that they are lined in the front and crotch with black fabric just in case.

20180316_182621

“Bitches Make Wishes” Wishbone Pendant-$?

This pendant is made by Bitchy Box and is so you can keep getting what you want while you’re dealing with all that life throws at you.  I’ll take some extra luck any time it’s available.

20180316_182646

Meji Hello Panda Creme Filled Cookies-$?

I LOVE THESE COOKIES!!!!!!!  I’ve had to stop buying them at the store when I go because I want all the boxes of them.  They have a crunchy cookie outer shell with a soft gooey inside.  These ones are chocolate flavour but they come in many others.

20180316_182606

Ramune Drink Strawberry Flavour-$?

This is another thing I’ve had before and enjoy.  There is a little ball in the top that you push into the drink and it carbonates it right as you drink.  They are quite sweet but that’s okay.

Red Fortune Teller Fish-$0.06

This little fish in a bag tells you your fortune.  You place it in your palm and it curls or moves in a way that tells you what is going on.  Mine didn’t move which according to the instructions means it’s dead.  Go figure.

20180316_182653

Bonus-Fortune Cookies

This month had another great selection of things.   I think that they really nailed the theme of Va-China New Year this month!  Everything in the box is made to make you feel better and less worked up about things that may go on for this time of the month.  I am not bothering with a value this month as half the box I can’t possibly price.  It’s enough to know that I’m happy and love everything!

Bitchy Box TOM January 2018

Bitchy Box is a TOM box with a difference.  They don’t provide feminine hygiene items, but instead items to help you get through that time of the month.  They will fill the box with a variety of sweet treats, salty snacks, and handpicked gifts.  They endeavor to make sure you don’t stab anyone while you are riding some fun hormonal shifts.  They have 3,6, or 12-month plans available, starting at $66.00, plus shipping to Canada.  I had seen some other people’s boxes from them and thought they looked fun so I’m trying them out.

20180202_194255

Things were a little different this month.  The box felt very light and when I opened it, the info booklet was not on the top as normal.

The booklet ended up being at the bottom of the pile.  It has the normal list of items on the front, recipes in the middle, and social media on the back.  There was also a little note tucked in saying there was an item missing that they felt the could no longer wait for and that it will ship out next month.

Harebrained “Redrum” Period Panties-$12.99

I have to admit I don’t know this pop culture reference.  They are still a fun pair of panties and have all the benefits of the Harebrained line.  I’m still holding out for the Doctor Who ones though.

20180202_194418

Emergency Chocolate Bar-$?

This is a milk chocolate bar, wrapped in a custom wrapper.  They recommend keeping this for those days you are going to take an axe to something.

20180202_194432

Penguin Exfoliating Face Mask-$1.25

I love these!!! Any of the masks that have a pattern on them are so fun.  This one has dead sea salts to help refresh tired Winter skin.  I can’t wait to get this on and terrify my husband.

20180202_194305

Popcornopolis Nearly Naked Popcorn-$0.30

Popcorn is one of my stuck on an island foods.  This bag is just popcorn and salt and is going to be a delicious snack.  It happens to also be low in calories but that’s just a bonus at this point.

20180202_194327

Workout Dice-$3.00

They gave us this because it is January and most of us ha probably made a few (failed) resolutions.  This is a soft foam dice that have different workout options on each side.  It also has one side that is a water break so it’s not all horrible.

This month had another great selection of things.  The item that is missing is a pair of knitted fingerless gloves.  I think that they really nailed the theme of Crab-In Fever this month!  Everything in the box is made to make you feel better and less worked up about things that may go on for this time of the month.  I am not bothering with a value this month as half the box I can’t possibly price.  It’s enough to know that I’m happy and love everything!

 

Bitchy Box TOM December 2017

Bitchy Box is a TOM box with a difference.  They don’t provide feminine hygiene items, but instead items to help you get through that time of the month.  They will fill the box with a variety of sweet treats, salty snacks, and handpicked gifts.  They endeavor to make sure you don’t stab anyone while you are riding some fun hormonal shifts.  They have 3,6, or 12-month plans available, starting at $66.00, plus shipping to Canada.  I had seen some other people’s boxes from them and thought they looked fun so I’m trying them out.

20180128_194041

This was the Christmas box from Bitchy and that first look makes me think that they got at least a little festive up in here.

They have their standard little pamphlet in there.  On the front is the list of the items included for the month and where they can be found.  Inside are recipes for food and drinks. On the back is every possible social media link you could need to get hold of them.  There is also a code to get some discounts on wipes and a reminder that you can buy individual boxes too.

Harebrained “Staining Things” Period Panties-$12.99

These are probably the least favouite pair of these that they have sent out and that is only because I don’t watch the show.  All the good things about the period panties stand though.  They’re thick, comfy, don’t ride up, and have black material lining the inside.  These are festive though, I’ll give them that.

20180128_194153

Beyond Belief Mint Candy Kiss Lotion-$?

This lotion is scented with all the things that make you think winter……and peaches.  The other scents in here are peppermint, cinnamon, and butterscotch.  The lotion soaks in really quick and doesn’t leave me feeling greasy at all.  I like it!

20180128_194215

Snappers Caramel Brownie Snack-$15.00

These look amazing!!!!!  They are a pretzel, covered with a melty caramel fudge, and drizzled with dark chocolate.  They are a combination of the ultimate PMS relievers in one delicious mouthful.  I’m not sharing and these are going away in my special snack stash right now.

20180128_194204

Starbucks Peppermint Hot Cocoa-$8.55

This is a great addition.  I like Starbucks Peppermint Cocoa and since these are just add water packs I can have them at work and avoid the coffee shop.

20180128_194239

You Park Like A Bitch Cards

These are made up by the Bitchy Ladies and there is twelve business card sized little notes to make you feel better when faced with the other option of wanting to ram your shopping cart into other peoples cars.  I could have used one today as the scene below is what greeted me after getting groceries.  Let me just state that I was parked straight and had no issues getting me or my kid out of the car when I arrived and there was a car parked next to me.

20180128_132311

Let’s just say there’d have been words if they’d come back before I’d left.  Fuckwit.

This month had another great selection of things.  I think that they really nailed the theme this month!  Everything in the box is made to make you feel better and less worked up about things that may go on for this time of the month.  I am not bothering with a value this month as half the box I can’t possibly price.  It’s enough to know that I’m happy and love everything!

Sunday Mood November 2017

Sunday Mood is a monthly box that includes a mix of indie brands, vegan beauty lines, all-natural bath & beauty products, handmade jewelry, cool niche household items, art, specialty teas, and healthy treats.  They offer two different sizes of box, a sample box that has 2-3 deluxe samples and 1 full-size item or the full-size box that contains 4-6 full-size products.  They are priced at $25 and $44 but do go down with longer plans.  Shipping to Canada is $10 per box.  This is another one I picked up on Mother’s Day for 50% off or I would never have given it a go.  There was an additional Customs charge when it arrived, so that is something to keep in mind if you order.

20171215_195413

The box felt heavy this month but opening left me thinking that it was a little scarce in items. Once again there is not an info card for the month.  There seems to be a bit of chatter online that there has been no response from customer service for people who have reached out and that the quality of the items has been dropping.  They are supposed to be all full sized products in the box and I know that I can say that that has not really been the case for a few months.  I really would like to get something that tells me about what I received personally.  I could forgive the lack of full sized items if I knew that what I was getting was worth it.

20171215_195454

RoseVale Bath Bomb in Love-$2.69

This bath bomb smells very nice.  They are free of artificial colors and dyes and leave no residue in your tub.  I have been running very low on bath bombs and you can’t believe how happy this makes me.  I can only hope that Santa is reading my blog and brings me some for under the tree.

20171215_195509

Freedom Natural Deodorant in Lavender Citrus-$17.00

Well, this was shockingly expensive.  It has a whole bunch of ingredients that make you feel good about wearing this.  It is also aluminum free, paraben free, phthalates free, and dye free.  The lavender comes through as the main scent and it goes on very dry and smooth.

20171215_195527

Foxbrim Stretch Mark Oil-$13.95

This oil is formulated to heal stretch marks and scars using natural and organic ingredients.  It is cruelty-free and bottled in small batches.  I didn’t test this on my stretch marks yet but it feels nice on my hand.  It doesn’t leave me super shiny or greasy feeling even though it was definitely an oil that came out if the bottle.  It has almost no smell at all to it.

20171215_195432

Numi Organic Pu-erh Chocolate Tea

Well, this month I only got two where last month I three so there’s a downer.  I still haven’t tried the other ones because I’m thinking I’m not going to enjoy them all that much.

I am just okay with the box this month. The items are fine but without a card or some idea of what I’m getting it’s a downer for me.  The value for this month is not available since I can’t identify parts of the box.  That is okay but I’d rather not have had the Customs fee on top.  If you go to check it out they do have a code on their site that says will get you some type of a discount upon checkout, but be aware of the issues that have been happening.

Bitchy Box TOM November 2017

Bitchy Box is a TOM box with a difference.  They don’t provide feminine hygiene items, but instead items to help you get through that time of the month.  They will fill the box with a variety of sweet treats, salty snacks, and handpicked gifts.  They endeavor to make sure you don’t stab anyone while you are riding some fun hormonal shifts.  They have 3,6, or 12-month plans available, starting at $66.00, plus shipping to Canada.  I had seen some other people’s boxes from them and thought they looked fun so I’m trying them out.

Since American Thanksgiving is in November, most of the things I could see in this box reflected that.  They do a great job of matching the theme to the month if they can.

They include an info card that tells you the box name, “Let’s Get Ready to Gobble”, the items you will find inside, some recipes in the center, and info about the company on the back including all their social media links.

Harebrained “Menstralmania” Period Panties-$8.99

These are so cute!  The Ultimate Warrior was one of my favourite wrestlers back in the day and these are a perfect homage to him 🙂  There are still a few of the options I am hoping to get in the remaining months of this box but they are all really fun and great for more than just that time.

20171124_200833

Cranberry Grape Natural Lip Balm-$3.28

This smells like wine and that makes it awesome!!!!  It feels almost thicker than a normal lip balm and it is creamier too.  It feels nice on the lips and that smell is wafting up from my mouth and I think this might be my favourite balm ever.

20171124_200738

Turkey Leg Headband-$9.00~

So there is no way the people creating this box could have known this but I LOVE festive headgear.  I have ones for pretty much every holiday during the year.  This will join that elite group of things and be brought out once a year in all its glory.

20171124_200813

Original Double Chocolate Chip Cookie Tin-$?

This is a cookie that is good for the next four months tucked into a decorative tin.  I will stick this into my snack drawer and have it with a cup of tea one night, all alone with no little people asking for a bite.

Nuccina Pumpkin Spice COokie Butter Dippers-$?

I am not a big fan of pumpkin spice anything.  I will give these a try but I don’t have all that much hope of liking them.  Maybe I can eat just the breadsticks with some peanut butter.

20171124_200746

Mini Apple Pie-$?

This didn’t survive shipping from the States very well.  It definitely did arrive before the expiry date listed on it!  I think this is a little odd of an inclusion but it fits the theme perfectly and it’s fun.

This month had another great selection of things.  I think that they really nailed the theme this month!  Everything in the box is made to make you feel better and less worked up about things that may go on for this time of the month.  I am not bothering with a value this month as half the box I can’t possibly price.  It’s enough to know that I’m happy and love everything!

Mindfulness Box October 2017

Mindfulness Box is a monthly subscription that aims to promote mindfulness, inner peace & balance.  It contains 4-6 inspiring goods that have been carefully curated to bring you Zen and positivity.  There can be Holistic or Homoeopathic healthcare products, handcrafted jewelry, or crystals.  They offer three different box types based on who is receiving the box, the standard box, a kids box, or a family box.  The standard and kids start at $29.00 and the family is $52.00 per month.  Boxes do go down slightly with longer plans and shipping to here was $15.00 a month.  This is one of the boxes I snagged on Mother’s Day at 50% off and is one I would normally not get due to the price.  I am excited to see what’s inside as the images of past boxes look great.

The box was very differently shaped then normal and also labeled with a fragile sticker on the side.  Once I opened it up, I couldn’t see much beyond some stripes.

20171114_183931

They have an info card that tells you about each item and how it fits in with the theme for the month, Hygge.  This is something that has been everywhere lately and while I haven’t really tried to incorporate it, I do like all that it encompasses.

Bella Luna Luz Warmth Crystal-Infused Aromatherapy Candle

The candle itself is scented with vanilla, but there are pieces of cinnamon on top and that is what comes across first. There is also a jade crystal on there.  Burning this candle is supposed to charge your space with balance and positivity.

14oz. Ceramic Mug

This is a great mug.  It is nice and large and I love the blue inside on the black outside.

20171114_184058

Boxed Wishing Stone Set

This is a set of stones with words on them that you use to make wishes for a positive life.  There is also a velvet bag in the box to keep them safe while you are not using them.  Included are success, love, luck, health, happiness, and peace.

20171114_184007

Epielle Argan Oil Face Mask

This mask contains argan oil and lavender to make your skin nourished and hydrated.  The mask itself is made from natural cotton, which I’ve never noticed any of my others to be made from.  I’m excited to try this one.

20171114_184207

Fleece For Peace Cozy Blanket

This blanket might not seem like much more than a regular 50×60″ fleece blanket but for every one that was sent out in a box, they donated one to flood victims in Puerto Rico.  A blanket is also a great way to experience hygge as it can comfort and warm you.

20171114_184128

Stash English Breakfast Tea

It does seem odd that they only included one tea bag but this does fit in with all the other items this month.  This is not my favourite kind of tea but it’s one my hubby drinks so it will go on his tea shelf.

This month they nailed the theme with the items.  I love all of the things that were included and can’t wait to use them together, just with a better flavour of the tea.  There are no prices included so I cannot do a value but this one is one of the best boxes from them that I’ve received and I’m very happy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fred’s Box Mystery Subscription Box November 2017

Fred’s Box is a monthly subscription full of things for kids 3 and over.  In the Mystery Box, you get a book, an Ooshie or Crayola funky shapes, depending on the age of the recipient, pencil, sticker, postcards, and some mystery items. You can get this box as a twin version to get double the goodies.  There is a straight Ooshies box that saves you from having to try to collect them one at a time as well, in 4 sizes.  Boxes start at $3.99 British Pounds and go up from there.  Shipping to Canada is 54 pence a month.  I decided to go with the Mystery Box for Bug and since her birthday is soon, I aged her up to 6 for the books.  They shipped out quite quickly after ordering and now we get to check out what’s inside.

The box was big again but it’s still thin so it easily fits in my mailbox.  Once I opened it I could see all kinds of fun Halloween items.  This box arrived before Halloween so there is no issue with that, I’m just a little later getting the review done!

They have a card in the box and it lists all the social media links for Fred’s Box and a code for a discount.

The book we received this month is How The World Began by Fiona Macdonald.  It seems to be a little above in reading level then we have been getting but that is not a problem.  This book is a collection of stories and myths from different cultures that explain the beliefs about how Earth was created.  This one is going to be a good book to make my girls think and to show them a broader range of cultures then we might normally.

20171105_193824 (1)

The Ooshie is Wonder Woman!  How great is that?  These things are so freaking cute and my kids love them.  Superheros are still a big part of their play and they add in these little guys with their bigger dolls and go from there.

We got a brown pencil crayon this month, we’ll have a complete set by the time this is done!  There is also the standard name sticker and postcards, only two this month instead of the normal four.

There are so many mystery items this month!!!!!!!!!  It’s a serious haul of Halloween and play items.  Half of me wants to hide away the things that are not themed and use them as stocking stuffers.  I should but I’m too excited to see the reactions to the things to do that.  We received this month, a Littlest Pet Shop blind bag, Halloween Glow Rings (we have a glow stick every night, HOW DO THEY KNOW?????), a Paw Patrol Bracelet, Paw Patrol Hair Ties (all the girls in this house have waist-length hair, again how do they know?), Shopkins Top Trumps cards, Disney Princess Trading Cards, Halloween Nail Tattoos,  and Halloween Window Clings.  Every single one of these things is going to be a hit.  The kids are obsessed with Shopkins and all things card game related.  Having their nails done is a special treat that happens way less then they ask for it to.  Once again I am astounded at the items we received and the amazing ability they have to put together a box that is full of the things my kids are into at this moment.

This box is great fun.  The girls are going to be very happy with all the toys in it and the book has already been given the thumb’s up.  There is an opportunity for creativity with the postcards, learning with the book, and play with the rest.  I can’t wait to see what future boxes from them bring us.  Fred’s Box run contests and have lots of special boxes you can get quite often.  If you want to check them out and get your own box of goodies click here.
