Let's Celebrate with a SALE!

Today my husband and I are celebrating TWO wonderful years of marriage! That's right, two years ago today on a cold Hatteras beach, surrounded by our immediate family we said "I Do". In celebration of that day, I am giving everyone $2.00 off any item in my RTS (ready to ship) album over at Kristin's Kreations!

Exciting announcement!

So I just wanted to let you know something awesome. My oldest daughter has made our local travel volleyball team. I am so proud of her and this will be a super opportunity that could possibly help her get a college scholarship in the future. She has just finished out her first year of middle school volleyball where she quickly caught on tho the sport. She has fallen in love with playing so this is a super big deal. If you notice to the right of this post I have added a widget to my page. I am never one to ask for personal donations, but this will be a pricey thing that she is going to be involved in. While we will figure out a way to come up with the money, I just thought that if we got any sort of help, it would all be so appreciated and every bit would help out. I do have incentive rewards for certain amounts in the form of handmade items. I just thought that I could use my crocheting abilities in any way possible to help my daughter achieve her dream. I am so excited about this for her!! I hope you all have a great week!

Conscious Box: October 2013

I received my October Conscious Box about two weeks ago, but just never got around to blogging it for you, but here it is. Conscious Box is the monthly subscription service in which you receive eco-friendly products. You have a choice of Classic, Vegan and Gluten free all for only $$19.95/month. There are other payment plans as well if you choose to bundle your months. So far this is my second Conscious Box and I've enjoyed both of them.

Let's take a look at everything I received this month...

CrumCreek Soy Bites Mini Breadsticks: I'm not sure what the value of these are, but they sure were tasty!

Good Boy Organics Organicasaurus ($0.76 value): This is the second product I've ever tried from the Good Boy Organics brand, and once again I am so impressed. I wish I could find these locally, but since I can't, I will definitely have to order some snacks from them online. My boys loved these cheese puffs!

Gnu Foods Fiber Love Bar in Cinnamon Raisin ($1.99 value): I loved this bar and would love to try some of the other flavors from this brand.

Clean Ethics Bottle Bright ($1.00 value): I haven't tried this yet but I think I am going to test it out in my 2-year-old's sippy cup. They are so hard to get completely clean without soaking them overnight. I think this would be great for them.

LifeTree Citrus Fresh Dish Soap ($0.19 value)

The Honest Company Honest Shampoo & Body Wash ($0.15 value): I have heard great things about The Honest Company brand of products so I'm excited to try this.

Seventh Generation Natural Skin Serum ($0.25 value)

Seventh Generation Natural Body Lotion ($0.12 value)

Goddess Garden Organics Tangerine Lavender Daily Lotion ($0.48 value): This lotion has SPF 15 and smells great!

Acure Argan Stem Cell + Chlorella Growth Factor Night Cream ($2.00 value)

Lotus Moon Vitamin B Hydrating Gel ($5.60 value)

Allimax 100% Allicin Capsules ($1.46 value): I am not sure if I will try these since I don't like taking unfamiliar products while breastfeeding, but I read that they are a great immune-booster.

FruitsMax Whole Food Supplement ($2.91 value): These chewable tablets state they are a great way to get in 21 fruits plus L. acidophilus probiotics

Eat Green Tea 100% Organic Green Tea ($0.75 value)

So that is what I received in my Conscious Box for October. I came up with an approximate value of $17.66, but I did leave out one item that I forgot to get a picture of and also didn't get a value on the little breadsticks. If I had to guesstimate closer to the value, I'd say it would come out to be nearly equal to the $19.99 subscription price. Do you get Conscious Box? How do you like it? If you would like to get your own Conscious Box just click this link HERE. Enter the code FREEBOX at checkout and you will only have to pay $7.00 s/h for your first box.

Birchbox: October 2013

It's time for another Birchbox. If you are unfamiliar with Birchbox, this is a monthly subscription service that is $10.00/month and you get full and sample size beauty products.

Here's the box...

So let's see what came in this month's box...

12 Benefits Instant Healthy Hair Treatment ($4.75 value): this hair treatment detangles, protects, and heals damaged hair.

Evologie Stay Clear Cream ($20.46 value): this moisturizer helps protect skin and balances oil levels. I've already tried it out and it doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy at all.

Supergoop! City Sunscreen Serum ($5.00 value): this SPF 30 has anti-aging properties and can be used as your makeup primer.

theBalm cosmetics Stainiac in Beauty Queen ($2.27 value): this subtle stain is great hint of color for lips or cheeks.

ChapStick Hydration Lock ($2.99 value): this is the Birchbox Find for this month. It boasts that it provides 8 hours of moisture, which I can vouch for since I use it every night before bed and wake up with it still on and working!

This month's Birchbox comes up to a total value of $35.47 which is over 3 times the subscription cost! This is my third month with Birchbox and so far I can't really complain. I enjoy getting to try some new products to see what I might like out there in the beauty world. You should definitely give this one a try. At $10.00/month, it's a pretty great deal.
