Yogisurprise Subscription Boxes Jewelry/ Lifestyle Review May 2016


Hello everyone, how has a month flew by so quickly? I have NO idea how that even happened!!! Here I am trying to be better about blogging, well it’s time to make that commitment again, I have had some great boxes for June roll in, and still wanted to share with you all. I hope you enjoy, I think the photos turned out pretty neat too! If you don’t know what yogisurprise is, it’s a monthly subscription box that has two different box options, which both are amazing boxes!! Each box is a separate subscription and price, so please check it out down below. I most definitely love both!! I can’t decide which I like best, they both are great boxes this month, let’s jump right into the review for both of them, I do receive these boxes for review each month, and they are a local to me company here in Oregon yeah, but my honest opinions are always my own. I love yogisurprise though, and they are an amazing company as well, and offer a great variety of brands, and products, and the jewelry pieces are very unique, and lovely! Yogisurprise is great for everyone, not just yoga lovers, the lifestyle box has something for everyone 🙂

I am sharing the yoga jewelry box down below. This is my favorite box I have ever received from yogisurprise. Yes, I know the box is from May, but I just had to review, and share it, because it’s that good!!! The mala sandalwood necklace is absolutely stunning, so beautiful, and very well made. I couldn’t believe how lovely it was, and how much of a high value it was! Yogisurprise nailed it with this box! I really love the bracelet as well, the delicate charm on the bottom is so cute, and perfect! The lovey chocolate fudge rolls we have received before in a previous box, which is a bummer, but they are really yummy, so I don’t mind, they are grown up versions of tootsie rolls, can’t go wrong with a classic right? I really enjoy how they include a treat every month in the box!

What do you think of the jewelry box for May? Do you think you would try it out? They both are great boxes, and I am sure it would be hard to choose which one to try, but I think anyone would love 2 pieces of beautiful crafted jewelry every month!

PLAY! By Sephora May 2016 Review

Screen Shot 2016-06-07 at 11.38.25 PM.png


Hello lovies, I hope everyone has been good, it has been like a month, and a half since I have blogged last, how does time go by so very quickly, busy, busy life that’s for sure. If you haven’t read my life update post, please jump on over, and give it a read, I would greatly appreciate it! Anyways, I am still getting tons of subscription boxes, and really feel the need to review them, even though this one is late, and not the best pictures, I wanted to get this post up. I hope you all enjoy, if you haven’t heard, this box is now open to everyone so go ahead, and subscribe if you want to try it out, it’s a great way to sample high end brands that sephora carries for $10 a month! This was my first box, and here is what I thought 🙂 

For $10, it really can’t be beat, I kinda wish that they kept the “spoilers” from us, because by the time my box came, I knew exactly what I was getting, which kinda takes the fun out of it, in my opinion. The box arrived beautifully packaged with a heavy duty box, which I can appreciate so things don’t get broken yeah!!! Then, inside the box there is a great pamphlet telling you everything that is is the box, but not just that, it tells you HOW to use them, double yeah! There is also your PLAY card which if you bring it into your local sephora, you get 50 extra bonus points when you make a purchase, oh man, I just realized that I should have used it, of course I forgot about it, bummer! Next month I hope to remember lol! Everything, all your samples are packed in a super cute drawstring pouch,  how fun, kinda reminds me of another popular subscription service…… 😉 wink, wink. It is very cute though, and I definitely will use it! The samples are a great selection so far, I love the mix of skincare, makeup, haircare, and perfume, that’s pretty cool, such a variety that you get to sample, but I would love to see more makeup obviously, but you knew I would say that lol! Overall the samples are tiny, sadly the tarte cosmetics lip liner is beautiful, but it is SOOOO tiny 😦 Oh well, I am happy with the box, and love samples, so it all was good to me! 

I think this subscription box is a great deal, although I kinda wish they offered a 6 month, or a year subscription to save a little money, hmmm maybe I should tweet, and suggest that! Did any of you subscribe to this box, please comment, and let me know what you think, I would love to know 🙂 Do you think it’s worth the $10? I love how every month is a different theme as well, I am excited about June’s box, fun, fun, because you never know what your getting, or what brands! I definitely think it’s worth a try if you are a beauty lover like myself, and can’t get enough samples!! I love sephora, so this was perfect for me, they sure do make that money lol! My favorite product this month was the bite beauty lipstick, bite has always been my favorite lipstick brand, I just love the pigmentation, and quality, it makes my lips feel wonderful too!

Walmart Beauty Box WINTER $5 Box


Hello there!! 

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas holiday! I had a great one, I received the best present our family could ask for, we were surprised with a great visit from my brother, and nephew. I am one of 6, and have 3 nephews as well, so this was so great to have all of us together with our parents, it couldn’t get better than that! It was a happy surprise, I was SO in tears! I took a little break from everything, so I could focus on my family, and work, but hopefully I can get back into the swing of things with the new year! Today I am bringing you the, “Walmart Beauty Box” is a quarterly sample box which is FREE, all you do is just pay $5 for the shipping and handling. It is not my favorite beauty box obviously, but it’s a always a great value, and way to sample out new products that are being launched in the market, that are affordable prices. I have been a subscriber to walmart beauty box for over a year, and really enjoy it! Once you sign up, they automatically withdraw payment, and send you the box, which is nice, I really wish that target beauty box did the same, but oh well, those are definitely harder to come by, and they sell out SO FAST, so when I get this box in the mail, it is always a nice little surprise! If you want a sampling experience for items you can buy at Walmart, this is your box, like I said, it is a great value for what your getting, the coupons alone are worth the price of $5! I also love trying out new products, so this is always fun! Check out the video below for a better look at this box as well!

Buddhibox Yoga Subscription Box September & October 2015 Unboxing & Review




Hey there! How is your week going so far? Well, I hope!! I have been a bit busy this weekend trying to catch up on everything, but have had some time to relax which is great! The time change is throwing me off though, I have to admit, as I am sure with all of you, lol! I am doing a double unboxing for buddhibox this month, and it’s still late at that unfortunately. I got so busy last month, I forgot to do the post for September, and it was a great box, so I am doing the double post so you can really check out what to expect from buddhibox! It’s an amazing box that is targeted for yoga, and the active lifestyle, but it also works for any type of person which I absolutely love! I have been reviewing this box for a while now, and feel so fortunate to be doing so, which is wonderful. The owner of the company is a joy to work with, which also makes a huge difference when reviewing a subscription box. I also really always love the contents of every box, it’s very fitting for my lifestyle, the gifts included are so cute, yet practical, and I will definitely get use out of everything. I especially love when they include jewelry, it’s always handmade, and beautiful. Buddhibox really is fit for everyone, I definitely think it’s worth the price you pay every month, and it’s great that I haven’t received a repeated brand of anything yet, yeah! The pricing is below, and there are a couple different options, so be sure to review it if your thinking about subscribing!

Popsugar Must Have July 2015 Unboxing & Review


Yeah, it’s time for my favorite subscription box review! I am always so surprised with the variety, and selection of products every month. I absolutely love popsugar must have! If your unfamiliar with it, it is a monthly subscription box that is $39.95 a month, and the value of the box every month, is always WAY more than that! This box wasn’t the best for me, although I liked everything, there wasn’t the wow factor this month. I really didn’t like the pop toothbrush, I think it is very low quality, and I already use a sonicare toothbrush that is rechargeable so I definitely won’t use this, but that’s okay I can swap, or give it to someone. My favorite product out of this box though is the supergroup defense refresh setting mist, funny because I was totally going to purchase this a few weeks ago, but didn’t, this mist is AMAZING, highly recommend it, and love that it is spf 50, perfect for protecting my skin from the harmful sun rays! What a great product! This box had a high value that’s for sure, and definitely was worth it as always. I hope to get a big makeup product next month, come on popsugar it’s time 🙂 Please check out my previous boxes by searching in the sidebar to see what other boxes have been like!

My First Boxycharm June 2015 Unboxing & Review


FullSizeRender 11

I am seriously SO excited about this review! I am so very lucky to get the opportunity to review this amazing beauty subscription box! I have been wanting to try boxycharm for more than a year now, it’s always been a sought out box for me, since it has FULL SIZE beauty products for the most part, and has amazing value for $21 a month! Wow, every month, I was bummed I didn’t subscribe every time I saw what was in the box. I now feel very blessed to work with boxycharm to review these amazing boxes every month. This was my first box, and it seriously amazed me, I am so happy with everything that I received. I can’t wait to see what is in store for next month! 

My favorite thing that I got in the box this month was the eslor mask, it literally is BRIGHT green, and such a cool texture. I have already had the chance to try it out, and it made my skin SO soft, and smooth. I am already a huge fan of this mask! I also really love the full size cargo eyeshadow, it is the most pigmented pink eyeshadow I think I own, it is very buttery, and applies perfectly on the eyelid. I have a few of these eyeshadows, the packaging is also adorable as well, I am loving cargo eyeshadows, they really stay on my lid all day, with primer, they are amazing! Overall the value of the box is incredible. Remember, this subscription box only costs $21, but the items I received valued almost 6 times the cost, it is an amazing value this month, I couldn’t believe how many full size products were included! Yaaassssss boxycharm nailed it! 

Boxycharm was my favorite subscription box that I received this month, I am so excited, and honored to work with an amazing company, and am excited to see what July’s box, and future boxes will have inside. If you would like to subscribe to boxycharm please just go to their website, as I do not have a special link yet, but that may change, and I will update this post if I do have one, or a discount code. I am also posting the review by the end of this week on my youtube channel, I will also post that for you to check out! Thanks for reading! Is there anything specific in this box you would like to see a review on? Let me know! 🙂

The Subscription Box: BoxyCharm
The Cost: $21 a month

The Products Included: 5-6 indy/ high end makeup beauty items that will include nail care, skin care, makeup, haircare, fragrance and more. Tons of full size products! The value is huge with boxycharm! I can’t wait to try everything out! Great variety of new/ different brands!

My Review: 

I had the opportunity to tryout a new subscription box that is just launching called berrycart, it’s a healthy food subscription snack box that has a totally new, and different concept. I actually was very interested to see what this box was about, and what it had to offer! I am not sure if this is how every box will be, or if this was just a test box, it was pretty great non the less!

I had seen a few other youtubers reviewing the box, so I had an idea of what it was, I thought the concept seemed pretty great, but definitely confusing. They market it as a new simple, and fun way to try new healthy snack foods, while not breaking the bank. Okay, so the concept is a bit confusing, not gonna lie, and honestly I don’t know if it will work with subscribers. The cost of the box is $30 per month, which for what was included in the box, seemed a bit high. Other youtubers thought the same when they reviewed it. Let me try and explain the concept here….. you are supposed to redeem cashback rebates at your local grocery store, when you purchase the product. I am trying to explain it to the best I can, but it is really confusing! I guess with this box you would get back a total of $8.05 in cashback rebates through an app if you purchased every item in the box, plus bananas. Sounds interesting right? But let’s not forget the box cost $30 per month. So unless you use or redeem all those cash back rebates, I think the price isn’t worth the value, not in this box anyways unfortunately. The odds of you purchasing, and liking everything that you sampled in the box is pretty random I think. You are also supposed to get 3-4 full size products each month, I received 2 in this box, so not sure about that claim.

All in all I am still trying to figure out how this box is going to work, I love snacks like these, and have been shopping more, and more in the natural food stores in my area, but I don’t even know if those grocery stores plan to use, and offer this app, and offers, so in my opinion, I just don’t know if this new concept is going to work. I live in a very eco-friendly I like to say state, but I don’t think busy families, or people shopping have time for all of this, etc. I did however, enjoy the snacks that were included, my favorite were the world peas in the ranch flavor, very tasty! I think there needs to be a bit more research, and work done before this box is going to be successful. If I receive another box to review, I will be sure to do an updated post! Thanks for checking out berrycart!
