Co Ed Supply May Review

Co Ed Supply May Review

**I purhcased this box, all opinions in this post are my own. This post contains referral links.

About: A monthly subscription box geared towards college students. Each box contains supplies that will help you get through college.

Cost: $20 for classic, $35 for deluxe

Shipping: Ships only to United States


This is the last Co Ed Supply box that I will be reviewing for a while. They are not sending out boxes over the summer and hoping to pick back up in the fall!

Mustache Magnets $4: These are so much fun. Shaun loves putting them on his art when he hangs them on the fridge. We even hanged his school picture on the fridge and put a mustache magnet under his nose. He loves looking at it and changing them around.

Peak Energy $5:  These help keep your breath and your mind refresh. These mints have caffeine and D-Ribose as ingredients to have long and fast acting affect. I haven't tried these since I try to stay away from caffeine except in my morning coffee. It makes me jittery.

Hornie Corn Popcorn $1.16: This popcorn has a spicy flavor. We haven't tried it yet, but I can't wait. We love popcorn and spicy flavors so it sounds like a perfect combo!

Pretzel Crisp $1.50: I have received these in other subscription boxes. I do not like them, but Shaun likes to have spreadable cheese on them. So they were perfect for an after school snack for him.

Notatoes $1.50: These are tortilla chips made from cassava. They were really good dipped in some Newman's Salsa!

The Daily Crave Veggie Sticks $1.29: We received this same bag last month in our co ed supply box. Shaun really liked them. I like only the white ones. The orange and green ones are not really for me.

Wash With Joe $5: This body wash smells really good. I had no clue that coffee & mint could make a wonderful scent when combined!

Not Pictured!

Postagram 5 Free $0.99 per gram: This is so fun! I am going to save this for our Disney trip this fall. Since I could not find an expiration ate!

The value of this box is $24.50. Cost of the box is $20. I am not crazy about how many snacks were in this box but overall, I liked most of the products in it or Shaun did too!

Love With Food

May Review

**This post contains my referral link. I purchased this box and all opinions in this post are my own. 

About: Love With Food is a monthly subscription box that helps you discover new organic or all natural snacks.With each box purchases, Love with Food donates a meal to a needy child.

Cost: $12 a month ( discounts with longer subscription plans)

I should have enough points to purchase June's box when it goes on sale. So there will be one more box before I take a break from Love With Food. I will most definitely start this subscription back up in October. Our Disney trip is 97 days away and I am trying to save up spending money for that get away!

Now onto the awesomeness of this box. It is easily one of my favorite subscription boxes.

Tarallino Snacks with Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Terre Di Puglia: I am not sure what to compare these too, yet the flavor of them were very familiar. A good familiar but I spent a good chunk of time trying to figure out why they tasted familiar and came up with nothing instead of enjoying them as much as I would have liked.

Italian Black Truffle Salt and Hickory Smoked Sea Salt by The Spice Lab: I love flavor salt and was so excited to try these out. I used sprinkled one on steak before cooking and the other on some chicken. The flavors were wonderful!

Key Lime Cookies by J&M: I haven't tried these and probably won't. I do not like key lime pie so I am very iffy about trying it in cookie form.

Sweet Potato Chips by One Potato Two Potato: These were inhaled by Shaun. He loves sweet potato chips and I am guessing these were a hit with him!

Tropical Peach Drink Mix by Flavrz Organic: I seen these around our local grocery store. I put this aside for our Disney trip for our water to have extra flavor to it.

Giddy Up & Go Granola: This tasted delicious on my morning yogurt for breakfast! I love granola and I use to hate yogurt but granola really has been it awesome to incorporate it in my daily routine!

Sea Salt Caramels by Le Caramel: These were so delicious and easily my favorite item in the box. I wish there was more than two! They melted in my mouth like wonderful tasty caramel that it was.

Honeybush Caramel, Southern Mint, and Tropical Green Teas by Revolution Tea: I gave these to my mother in law since she like to try different teas. They sounded like fun flavors.

I love Love With Food and know I am going to miss it. What was your favorite item from this month's box? Mine was the caramel!

Citrus Lane May Review

Citrus Lane May Review

4 1/2 Year Old Boy

**This post contains my referral link. I purchased this box and all opinions in this post are my own. 

About: Each month, Citrus Lane ships to products for your child

Cost: $29 a month (discount with a longer subscription available)

Shipping: United States, including APO, FPO, and DPO

Discount:  Click HERE, to receive your first box for 50% off! ($14.50)

What I Got:

First I want to say sorry about the low quality of these pictures! Shaun was super grabby because well he wanted his goodies and Tex wanted to help him out in checking everything out. So sometimes you will see this white blur. Don't worry, it is just Tex!

All links and prices are from 

Creativity for Kids Parachute Fliers Kit ($6.16): I was not excited to see this in the box at all. Shaun loved it though. They are great quality, actually better quality than what I was expecting. We had lots of fun coloring in the stickers and placing them on the parachutes. They did end up tangled but that is to be expected with this type of toy.

Back to Nature, Mini Chocolate Chunk Cookies ($1):  What kid doesn't like chocolate chip cookies? These were gobbled up with his afternoon lunch.

Jasmine Seven Kids Fresh Feet Wipes Travel Pack, Grapefruit, 10 Count ($6.59): These are interesting, wipes to help with stinky dirty little feet!  I am putting this in our suitcase for Disney World. Who knows how stinky and sweaty Shaun's little feet can get in September Florida's heat.

Stephen Joseph Fun Flyers Shark ($9.99): This is an awesome flying disc. It works awesome and easy to toss too. I love the design of this. Boxes had different variations of this. I am so happy we got the Shark though. Shaun loves sharks!

Goodbyn Bynto Food Container, Green ($13.75): I couldn't find this exact one. The pamphlet that came with the Citrus Lane box says this is a brand new launch product from Goodbyn. I LOVE it thought. I stashed it away for next year since Shaun will be in Kindergarten. Perfect for him to pack his lunch with. I am probably going to pull this out couple times throughout the summer for picnics at the newly refreshed playground up the block from us!

I purchased this box at a discount, but if I paid $29 for this box, I received $37.49 worth of products this month. Overall, I am extremely happy with this months box. I decided to sign up for 3 more months at a discount.

Ipsy May Review

Ipsy May Review

*I purchased this subscription and all opinions in this post are my own. This post contains my referral link.

About: Each Month, Ipsy will send you a glam bag filled with 4-5 deluxe and full size beauty samples.

Cost: $10 a month

Shipping: Ships to United States and Canada

What I Got:

Each month, Ipsy arrives in a bright pink padded envelope. I save that envelope for trades! 

This months glam bag is by far my favorite. I love the spring green look on the canvas type material. Seriously my favorite!
Nailtini, Blood Mary. I love nail polish and have very few reds. This is nice to add to my over flowing polish collection. My mother in law has noticed and started coming over here to try her hand at using my polish for something new.

Hang Ten, Classic Sport SPF 50. This is probably my favorite thing in the bag this month. I love sunblock. I even really like the smell of sun block. I am going to toss this into our suit case since it is the perfect size to fit in a small bag while we are at Disney World. This will be perfect than carrying a full size sun block.

Pur~lisse, purmoist hydra-balance moisturizer. I am excited to try this out and love that it isn't greasy!

Avene Thermal Spring Water. I have no clue what this is for or what thermal spray spring water does. I put this up for trade.

 Pacifica, Mineral Duo Eye Shadow, Duo #1 (Celestial & Opal). I love neutral eye shadow because I don't wear it that often but when I do I like to stick with my comfort zone. So these shades are perfect for that.

Also, I wanted to let you know that this will be my last Ipsy Glam bag for a while. I am trying to cut back on my subscription box spending for other boxes to review and to help save for spending money at Disney World. 

Birchbox May Review

Birchbox May Review

**This post contains my referral link. I purchased this box and all opinions in this post are my own.

About: Each month Birchbox will send you samples ranging from make up to beauty care. As well, as some fun extras

Cost: $10 a month

Shipping: Ships to USA

What I Got:

The contents of Birchbox is always in a brown box. I love this brown box and use them for so many different things. I keep Shaun's crayons in one, keep his bow ties in another one, put small gifts in them, the possibilities are endless.

 First look, after I took the lid off of the box.
Every month, Birchbox includes a information card on the products. The card has a what and how for each product, plus the full size price.

Another first look when everything on the top was taken off.

Color Club, Art Duo Pen. This is such an awesome shade of purple and can not wait to try it out. I have never had a nail polish pen that works great for drawing on my nails. So this will be a step up from a tooth pick!

Marcelle, BB Cream Golden Glow. I am going to save this for when I actually have a tan. I am not sure when that is going to happen with the dark grey skies and raining days we are having. I am just happy it is warm rain with 60s-70s degree. Although, I am ready for summer!

Miss Jessie's Original, Pillow Soft Curls. I am not sure how much I want my hair to curl right  now. The rain brings out the curls in my hair and I recently got half of it chopped off. Which means, extra curly on top of rain curly! Although, this says it will help make them frizz free! Which makes me want to try it more!
Wish, Shave Crave Shaving Cream -- Acai Grapefuit. This is probably the one thing in my box that I am look forward to trying the most. I love trying out new shaving creams.

CoTZ, Face Natural Skin Tone SPF 40. This is an oil free mineral sunscreen that blends with your skin for a sheer matte finish. This seems like a nice product with sun protection in it. This is probably one of the two things in the box that I am not that crazy about. The other was the BB Cream.

Overall, I loved my Birchbox this month. Plus I will get points back to spend in their shop by reviewing the products. I love birchboxes reward system!

Click HERE and Use Coupon Code JOINBULU

What I got: The box arrived in a nice bright orange package covered in some awesome encouraging words.

First look when I opened it: Coupons, Info Card Sheet, and Encouraging Words.

I seriously love these. I saved these to put them up near the computer and on the mirror for when I need some happy thoughts!

Bulu Box's Info card sheet is a little different than others, but yet the same. I like how they include a nice description of the product, just not a quick short sentence.

Tapaz 2 Go: lentil Crackers with Classic Hummus. Shaun ate this for his snack before school this afternoon. He wasn't sure what it was, but once he tried it, he really liked it!

Simple Being Simple Diet Sample: 2 Capsules. I am not really into weight loss pills. I do know somebody that likes them, so I will give this to her to try.

Beauty Burst, 1 sample. This was tasty for a dietary supplement. I have no clue how affective it was, with only one fresh mint chocolate.

Smarty Pants for Kids and Smarty Pants Weight Management Vitamins Sample. The kids vitamins are a bonus this month for the kids. She loves gummy vitamins more than the other chewable kind that  I had growing up. So this was nice to add to his vitamins. I liked the Smarty Pants vitamins more than the other type that I purchase. I am probably going to pick some up the next time I run out!

Rootology, Breath Free: 4 Capsules: I can not wait to try these. I have been nervous since Zyrtec is usually my best bet against allergies. I hate this time of the year and the bees are happy in my yard. Which I think they might be bringing extra pollen with them:(  But Rootolgy is suppose to help with nasal, sinus and eye healthy for dramatic seasonal allergy relief. I am going to give it a try, because anything that can help, is awesome in my books. Has anybody else tried this?

Naturade Vegan Smart Protein Shake: Chai. I am excited to try this shake that contains protein, fiber, omega blends, vitamins, minerals, probiotics, and other digestive enzymes. Maybe for breakfast some time this week.

I also wanted to share a little bit more about Bulu Box. If I review all the items in my box, I will earn 70 points which equals $7 to spend in their store. This box, if I did not buy it on a discount would have cost $10. I have the potential to earn $7 of that back, just by giving my feed back! Awesome!

If you are interested in joining Bulu Box, I would do it now with that awesome discount!

3 Month Subscription:$30 -- $13.50
