Sudsy Club| April Review

1

What is Sudsy Club Soap?

“All of the ingredients in our soaps come from natural plant-based sources such as olive oil, shea butter, and coconut oil.  We never use artificial dyes, synthetic fragrances, preservatives, or detergents in any of our soaps. Many handmade soap companies add brightly colored dyes and artificial fragrances to their soaps. At Sudsy Club, we let the natural scents of the oils and butters enhance the soap with things such as herbs, essential oils and clays.”
So why is “all-natural” better? Your skin is the largest organ of your body, and it absorbs whatever you put on it. As we always say….”What goes on goes in.”

This box is $25 a month which is a steal if you ask me! There is nothing better than knowing that what you are putting on your body is all natural. The smells in that emanated from this box were intoxicating!

The aesthetic of the box is exactly what I would expect from a company that wants to spread natural plant-based items. The blue of the box is eye catching while the inside of the box is what really catches all of the senses! Let’s dive into this box and see what it has in store for us!

Eucalyptus Lavender Silk Bar
Retail: $5.95

The smell of this bar is intoxicating. If you have been following my reviews over the past year you know how much I love lavender. Lavender is the most perfect essential oil for calming your mind and body. It uplifts you and brings a sense of rest to your mind. This is going to be the PERFECT evening shower or bath soap. Something that will really get you ready to a relaxing evening. It is also scented with eucalyptus in the Brazilian Clay. This helps to improve circulation, detoxes, and minimizes pores!

Lemon Delight
Retail: $5.95

There is nothing better than citric smell. I love how awakening it is. I constantly have lemon and orange essential oils with lavender on me or in my diffuser. This wonderful little bar is the perfect addition to my addiction! This is PERFECT for a morning shower. It will sure to wake you up and get you ready for the day. It is also swirled with French Green Clay which is known to be amazing for your skin.

Cocoa Mint Silk Bar
Retail: $5.95

This was the most stunning of all of the sudsy bars for this month. It was just beautiful in color and marbling. The smell as well is something that makes me feel luxurious! This is the perfect pampering soap. Try taking a long hot bath or shower and treating yourself with cocoa with hints of peppermint and spearmint! How wonderful does that sound?! There are large amounts of silk, shea butter, and chocolatey goodness!

9

Bath Sponge
Retail: $6.95

Not only did Sudsy Club make the perfect artisan soap for every occasion but they also added in the bath and body sponge. This is perfect for cleansing your body and face. I am so excited about this box and everything that this company stands for!

 

Remember to treat yourself!

Until next time…

Boho Babe Review| February 2019

1

Boho Babe always knocks it out of the park when it comes to their items but as well as with their themes. Last month for January was all about goals, planning, and really figuring out what you want in your life. February’s box was not any different! It was all about self-love! There is nothing better than loving yourself for who you are. I can attest to that. You can’t truly love anyone else until you accept and love yourself.

So, let’s dive into what the Boho Babe magical mavens have put together for us in this month’s box.

2PC Love Knot & Arrow Bangles
By: Boho Babe
Retail: $28.00

Boho Babe always knocks it out of the park with AMAZING jewelry. They are perfectly matched and on point to the other jewelry that they send throughout the year. These bangles are supposed to remind you that love conquers all. They sure do that for me. The bangles aren’t too heavy or cumbersome either. The perfect addition to any outfit.

4

Love Yourself Bath Salts
By Sister Sister Naturals
Retail: $8.00

Nothing says SELF LOVE more than running a hot bath, pouring bath salts in, lighting a few candles, a glass of wine, and a good book! If you ask for my HUMBLE opinion! Ha! These bath salts are meant to cleanse your aura and raise your vibration. They sure do that! They smell amazing and I just love the soft colors as well!

5

Microfiber Yoga Hand Towel
By: Boho Babe
Retail: $18.00

I’m not going to fib, I was confused as to why this was in the box until I read the product card. This is a MICROFIBER towel! These things are so expensive in the store! The fact that we got one in this box is wonderful! I have been steadily working on my yoga game and sometimes I really work up a sweat! This is perfect for those days.

6

Bi-Layered Heart Necklace
By: Boho Babe
Retail: $28.00

Again with the wonderful jewelry! This necklace goes perfectly with the bangles set that I talked about at the beginning of the blog. It is light weight and perfect for those days where you just want a simple and elegant look!

7

Carnelian Gemstone + Description Card
By: Boho Babe
Retail: $10.00

I love that this box is constantly teaching you things! They almost ALWAYS have a beautiful gemstone in their boxes that revolve around their theme for the month. I love that this one is all about restoring your pleasure zone. The color is gorgeous.

9

Lavender + Rosewater Sheet Mask
By: Pink Beauty
Retail: $3.00

There is just something about lavender that I can’t get over. I am constantly diffusing it in my diffusers around the house, my shampoo and conditioner have lavender, and my diffuser necklace has it as well. It is one of the most calming feelings and scents in the world if you as me. As you can imagine, with my obsession with lavender I was super thrilled to see this tightening and clarifying mask in the box! It is such a good price too!

10

All Natural Hibiscus Flower Lip Balm
By: Herbal Chest
Retail: $9.00

Even though it is starting to feel like Spring or at least I am dreaming that it is starting to feel like Spring my lips are still chapped. There is nothing worse than going to laugh or smile and your lips crack. I love that they gave us something to show our lips some love too!

7 Days of Daily Self-Love Journal
By: Arabella Nova Designs
Retail: $10.00

There is nothing healthier for your mind, body, and soul then being able to journal your thoughts. Even though it might seem simple or a waste of time, studies show that writing a little bit every day can calm anxiety, depression, and more! This journal will help you revive your positive feelings towards yourself and rebuild confidence.


Overview of Boho Babe
February Box!

The Boho Babe Crew made my heart expand and my love for myself grow. I love how thoughtful they were in every aspect of this box. This is the Boho Babe Signature Box for $39.99 and the value was $114.00! That is an amazing deal! I can’t wait to see what they have in store for March!


BohoBabe Mini Box- $19.99

Date Night In Box

The Month of Love

1

Oh my goodness! The Date Night In Box just keeps getting better and better. This is one of the most beautiful and romantic boxes to date. I love how simple and yet how elegant they are.

2

Everything in the box just made me smile. It reminded me of the 1940s for some reason. I love the light feel of the stationary, the simplicity of the snack, and the thoughtfulness of the games and talking points.

3

They gave us The Five Love Languages Quiz which helps you really get to know your partner a little bit more. Something that helps you show them how much you truly love them, but in their own love language.

4

Writing love letters is something that will stay with each other more and more as the years pass. This is something that I will treasure.

5

I love how they always put so much thought into their games as well. This was so much fun and I love that it is something that you can play again and agian!

6

This put you right in the mood for being in Paris on a romantic night. The game and the smell of the Aromabeads. Such a perfect way to end the night!

The Date Night In Box

This box is something that I would purchase every single month. With how much dinner and a movie costs  well into $50-70 for a date night out, this box is fantastic in cost savings and brings you closer to your significant others.

Month to Month

$41.99 for each date
with free shipping*

I can’t wait to receive next month’s box. It’s makes me giddy just thinking about what the Date Night In crew is putting together for March.

 

Until next time…

There is something to be said about having some simple and tasty snacks in your pantry when you are feeling something spicy, sweet, sour, or salty. The four S’s if you will. The Something Snack box is one way that you can make sure that you always have those available at your finger tips.

Something Snacks guarantees that you will always find something salty, sweet, foreign, and health conscious in their boxes! Let’s dive into this month’s box.

To continue with the sweet tooth we have the Feiny Biscuits with Cocoa Cream and Hazelnuts, which are rom Germany! For those that need a sweet in their purse or their pocket the tiny Jans Milk Chewy Candy is there for you!

And last in the sweet range is the Laposse Teens Milk Marzipan with Almonds from Mexico! You’re traveling all over the world with this box!

We get into the spicy and salty aspects with the box with the Salsitas chips with real tomatoes and avocado! I have a HUGE weakness for avocado so these were perfect!

I love this box! And it comes at such a great price $14.00!

Date Night In| January 2019

 

Date Night In has knocked it out of the park AGAIN this month! Seriously. I love the ideas that they keep coming up with. This month was all about building a foundation of love. This was a PERFECT date night in with Aaron because he has an engineer mindset. These kind of activities are just what he loves and it is fun for me as well! Let’s get into this!

3

As always they have an amazing set of recipes for the night. I never make it to the grocery store to actually make these amazing dishes BUT I do keep them in my recipe drawer to keep on the back hand just in case. They also have a curated playlist that you can choose to play throughout the date night as well that helps put you and your partner in the mood.

4

Foundation of Love Building Tasks!

This was so much fun! It hit both Aaron and I’s loves. His for building and making things and mine for saying sweet things to him. You wrote down on the sticks what makes the foundation of your relationship and then built a tower!

5

The next building task was building a platform out of toothpicks and jellybeans. In this activity we worked together to build a platform for our Date Night In Box to rest on. This was a lot of fun and hard not to eat all of the jelly beans! Haha! Everything that you build during this date will be used later on! So make sure that you try your absolute best!

6

The next challenge is to be able to build a strong structure with straws, jelly beans, and tape. You want to make the tallest structure that you can. Make a strategy together and make sure you both agree. This is a TEAM effort!

Challenge three was all about taking all of the structures you built and put them together to make a love tower. Get out your measuring tape and see how tall the structure is that you made! How sturdy it is!!!!!

7

This was an absolute blast and I can’t wait to see what Date Night In comes up with for the month of February! The month of love!!!!!

1

Ebony Osmanthus
Retail $13.00

There is nothing better than an amazing black tea. This one is clean and dark and there is a subtle sweetness to it as well. Something that hits the right spot when you need it! They talked about the note of apricot and peach as well. It made me think of the coming months of Spring and Summer time!

2

Cranberry Orange Herbal
Retail $8.00

This was probably my absolute FAVORITE tea in this month’s box. I love the color of it. The aroma was perfectly citric and sweet. I can see this as a perfect tea for a cool night or made as a cold brew as well! I love this so much and can see myself getting it more and more!

3

Purple Jasmine
Retail: $12.00

Jasmine tea is one of my hands down favorite types of tea that I drink throughout the year. I love the calming effect of it. There is just something about jasmine that brings a relaxing and calming mood on my tense shoulders and clinching jaw. This tea is primarily grown between 4,500 and 7,500 feet. It has 15X the natural antioxidants that blueberries have! This is great for this time of year when noses start running!

4

Bitaco Green
Retail $10.00

This is a new green tea out of Columbia. It has a sweet and nutty flavor! The liquid is beautifully bright yellow and brings a smile onto your face when you look at it. I love that since this tea was new to the wonderful people at Simple Loose Leaf they suggested to steep it at different levels of heat and it various ways. I love that!

This has been another lovely tea box! I love the new design to the box as well. It made me smile the moment I retrieved it from my mailbox. You really couldn’t get a better tea box for the price of $9.00 a month. I high recommend you try it out!

Happy drinking!
