Snowy Slow Down… Weekend Wrap-Up 12/16

Hi everyone! I apologize if it seems as though my posts have been a bit less frequent, as I’m wrapping up some projects at work and focusing on some Christmas shopping. But I promise, you will not be disappointed! In … Continue reading

Vegan Cuts Snack Box ~ September

First off, gotta love priority mail.. I received a shipping notification that my Vegan Cuts Snack Box was on the way, and then poof! It was there the next day. Vegan Cuts is an natural, organic, VEGAN (just in case … Continue reading

Juniper ~ August

image

So, if any of you saw my June Juniper Review, you will know how happy I was with this subscription box service. Not only is Juniper customizable to your needs and your timing per month, but Lynn is super funny. I love reading the cards she includes in the box each month.

And so when she graciously offered me a deal, I could not turn it down. Not only do I never have to go out and buy tampons again, but I get all these awesome snacks and teas too!

image

So the theme this month was “Keep it Fun, Mix it Up,” and as you can see from the info card it looked like Lynn was having an awesome bright, colorful party!  You can quickly see all the included items, from teas and honey sticks to nuts and cookies.

When I flipped the card over to Lynn’s Letter,  I laughed when I read about the Catwalking Class, wishing I had been able to do something like that! It only got better as she continued to talk about the class, and how her ‘opponent’ was invading her space and she was not having it at all. Talk about a cat (walk) fight!

image

As usual everything was perfectly wrapped and arranged, this month with green-blue tissue paper, and the usual cute see-thru bag holding all the goodies.

Okay now onto the snacks. This month, I received a pack of Donsuemor  Chocolate Madeline cookies, these soft yummy chocolate cookies to fit that sweet craving. Next to them is a pack of 479 Degrees Sea Salt Caramel Popcorn. Not only were these delicious, but they were only 100 calories… can I get a hell yeah!? Then, for that salty fix, was a packet of Nunes Farms roasted salted pistachios. I love pistachios, and I’ve had other Nunes Farms products in last months Taste Trunk.

image

Next up were the yummy teas for the month. All three were from the brand Numi and were GREEN TEAS! My favorite. There was Moroccan Mint, a caffeine free refreshing blend, Toasted Rice, an interesting nutty, savory tea with caffeine, and Simply Green, a basic decaf green tea. And as usual, they came with 3 assorted honey sticks!

image

Now onto the ‘personal items’… I got my packets of Midol as usual/requested, and then my special, pampering item: a Golden Earth Aromatherapy Body Wash! My last box had an olive oil complexion soap, and so I like that she had another ‘body/pampering’ item like this.

image

Of course, I got my usual monthly supply of tampons.  You get to choose your preference with brands, size, etc. which is awesome. Wait, this box is a time of the month box? I got too distracted by all the food….

image

Here’s a picture of all the goodies I got in addition to my tampons. You can see the variety of sweet and salty, and how she always maintains a similar set of items (3 teas, 3 honey sticks, etc) but always changes the brands, the flavors, etc.

image

I’m very happy with this mixture, as it combines sweet, salty and savory! Plus green tea is my fave.

Sign up for Juniper now! For $28 per month, you get a full supply of tampons, midol or pads if needed, teas, honey, a variety of snacks, plus a personal body care item! I have a feeling you won’t regret it… otherwise I wouldn’t be getting two more months of it!

xo, Kenzie

 

What’s on my…

Although I love to post my reviews and thoughts on products and subscription boxes, sometimes there are other things happening in my life that I’d wish to share with you, my lovely readers  🙂

So here is “What’s on my…”, a section where I will post weekly updates with what’s on my mind, plate, rant list and more! Enjoy!

What’s on my Plate:

photo(2)I constantly go instagram crazy with food pictures, often ones of my own homemade lunch or snacks… almost to the point where my friends are asking to cook for them, or to stop posting because they get too hungry at work. So here was my favorite lunch this week: a honey turkey and muenster cheese bran wrap with mixed greens, tomatoes and coleslaw with a side of macaroni salad and a hardboiled egg. Off to the side, you’ll see fruit salad as well! I ty to eat pretty healthy while also mixing it up and getting the proper balance of food groups.

What’s on my Mind:

rain_sunshine

How can it manage to be down-pouring in the morning, absolute cats and dogs, and a few hours later is scorching hot and sunny out? My outfits NEVER make sense! I start out in jeans and rain boots, then get weird stares by the time I get out of work by people in cut-off shorts and tank tops. Or vice versa, I try to dress “summery” and then I’m getting pelted by rain drops in my white button down and pastel skirt!

What’s on my Body:

photo(3)

Turquoise! Lots of turquoise jewelry including a vintage family-owned pendant, and a Fossil Brand braided bracelet. I was almost tempted to throw on some blue/turquoise eyeliner but I thought it would be a bit too much for a typical day in the office.

What’s on my Agenda:

photo(4)Getting my nails done! If anyone knows me at all, they know I always have cool, funky colors on my nails… often with an accent nail in leopard, polka dot or something else outrageous. However, last week I broke off half of my nails (acrylic tips of course, and not on purpose, ouch!) and so I took the initiative to just remove the rest, and now I have bare little stubs. 😦 At least it gives me an excuse to get the $15 Mani-Pedi deal that my salon offers… I never usually treat myself to a pedicure due to time and money! Check out my last color combo!

What’s on my Rant List:

Mailman#1 When my friends get their subscription boxes before me! I’m mostly kidding, but I’m extremely jealous that they already got a jump start at opening up, looking at and testing their new awesome products. For example, my friend Megan got her Ipsy bag yesterday (to which we were texting back and forth about all day) and so I was able to see it when I watched PLL and drank wine with her that evening, however the products vary from bag to bag. So I could get the hot pink blush, or the NYX multi-colored bronzer… it all depends on the luck of the draw!

#2 When I subscribe to a company, receive the “Welcome!” e-mail and weekly subscriber e-mails, however when I haven’t received any boxes in 6 weeks, they can’t seem to manage to e-mail me back/answer any messages! I won’t use any names for now, but I will be reviewing the company in the future (if my box ever arrives…) so we will see what happens. 😉

What’s on my Desk:

cookies

COOKIES! One of our speakers dropped off this awesome bouquet/gift basket of cookies! Yum…. and goodbye healthy lunch!
