Naturally Crated| Spring Crate

1

This has to be my FAVORITE box of the year with Naturally Crated. I am a person that loves all natural items. I love knowing that what I am doing is helping the environment. That I am being my best self. This box was FULL of amazing goodies that anyone would love it!

Approved By Elizabeth:

All products must fit into at least one of the following categories:

  • Products are full-sized, single-use or multi-use
  • All personal care & food products must include full ingredient lists
  • We value transparency, longevity of use, and family-friendly products
  • We never purchase items that we know have been tested on animals

This is a company that I can proudly stand by and that I feel good about getting every season. This box is $75 a quarter and it is worth EVERY PENNY!

Now, let’s get into the amazing goodies that we got in Springs Crate.

I love that since Naturally Crated turned into a seasonal box that they have really curated their boxes to the season. I don’t know about anyone else, but once Spring hits I get the cleaning bug REALLY bad! This box just hit the spot when it came to cleaning the items that I use every day! My clothes!!!! Let’s dive in!
3

Fair Trade Wool Dryer Ball Set
Retail: $28.99

I have ALWAYS wanted wool dryer balls! These are fantastic for getting the static out of clothes AND for making them smell AMAZING! These are fair trade and they support women in Nepal! You’re supposed to add essential oil drops to the balls and then throw them in with your clothes in the dryer! I can’t wait to do laundry! Which I haven’t EVER said!

4

Molly’s Suds Laundry Powder
Retail: $13.99

This laundry powder/soap is made up of only FIVE earth-derived ingredients. It is also made specifically for those with sensitive skin. It is supposed to be long lasting, super concentrated, and affordable. I can’t wait to try it out as well!

5

Wet Bag
Retail: $16.88

This is one of those items that you never think of to get yourself but you never realize how handy it is to have. Whether you are coming home from the gym, the pool, or a rainy day this is the perfect bag to store your wet clothes while you are waiting to wash them! You simply toss in the clothes and the empty bag in the washer when you get home!

6

Organic Lemon Oil
Retail: $9.95
Organic Lavender Oil
Retail: $10.95

Last season Naturally Crated sent over an essential oils holder bag, a wonderful flip through of information for the oils, and so much more! They knocked it out of the park again by adding in these essential oils as well. I can’t wait to use them in my diffuser but as well on my wool dryer ball set! It is going to be wonderful!

7

Hogwash!
Retail: $8.95

Apparently this is supposed to be able to wash just about anything out of your clothes! I can’t wait to put this to the test! It can be used as a spot cleaner as well! I love the packaging and the name. It makes me giggle!

8

Eco Nuts
Retail: $4.50

The names of this item cracks me up! But I love the idea of them! They are dried berries from a tree that grows in the Himalayas! When put in water they produce a naturally made laundry cleaner! How cool is that? I love that nature has given us so many things to be able to take care of ourselves without adding in all of those bad things into our systems!

9

Cedar Block Set
Retail: $4.99

I love how the team at Naturally Crated really do think of everything when it comes to their theme. These cedar blocks are supposed to go packed with your sweaters to keep the moths away from them during the Spring and Summer months!

10

I loved every single item in this box. I love how much thought and detail was put into the curation. The items are things that people need on a weekly bases. Everyone needs to wash their clothes and the idea of doing it safely and in a way that is good for the environment makes me happy.

Naturally Crated costs $75 a SEASON. That is a wonderful price! Especially when you get over $100 worth of items in each box.

Live life naturally!

Until next time…

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.”

2

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!

8

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

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!

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.

Boho Babe| January 2019

Welcome to the beginning of the new year! A time when everyone starts making resolutions about being healthy, going to the gym, or maybe starting a new hobby. The creators of Boho Babe are hot on the trail with this as well for their box for January and I love every single item inside it! Let’s get into this!

Create Your Own Vision Board
By Boho Babe
Retail: $10

I’m not going to lie. It felt as thought Boho Babe was reading my mind when I go to this in my box. I had already sketched some items and thoughts for my Vision Board for this year. I was preparing to print out pictures and get the items I needed for this project. These cards are going to look wonderful on my vision board. I can’t wait to get started!

3

Lotus Hair Clip
By Boho Babe
Retail: $16

I squealed when I found this in the box and as I am typing this I am currently wearing it in my hair and I absolutely LOVE IT! It is so dainty and beautiful. I love that it is gold and I can’t help but smile when I catch its glint in the mirror.

4

Lotus Intention Bracelet
By: Matilda August
Retail: $6

I love the idea of setting an intention or a goal anytime of the year. But to see that intention and goal come to fruition is something that is wonderful. This is a Lotus bracelet that when you put it on your wrist you make a goal or wish and you wear it everyday. Once the bracelet starts to fray you know that your wish is on its way.

5

Californian White Sage Fire Lighters
By:The Smudge Stick Shop
Retail: $15.00

“As the new year is upon us. There is no better time to hold a new moon fire ceremony to clear the negative energy and set intentions for the new year ahead.” I love the idea of starting anew. It reminds me of the phoenix. When it sets itself afire it is not gone but born anew. Think of it that way at the beginning of the new year.

6

Energy Essential Oil Inhaler
By: Joyful Aromatherapy
Retail: $6.00

This smells sooooo good! I can’t even explain to you how much better I felt after having a migraine for over a day and getting this in the mail and taking a whiff. This aroma can inspire you to take on new tasks with a fresh mind and perspective. I will be carrying this in my pencil bag that I take to work every day.

7

Crystal Infused Fresh AF Deodorant Spray
By: Self Goddess
Retail: $9.99

This is a really interesting idea that I am excited to use on a day that I don’t have work. No need to be stinky at work, but you bet your bottom dollar that this weekend I am going to try this! This is an organic and natural lavender and Clary sage spray. This automatically is a win in my eyes because I love lavender. Lavender is probably my favorite essential oil and smell. I can’t wait to try this out.

8

YASSS Queen Gummy Melts
By: Scents and Nonsense
Retail: $6.00

These are super neat and ADORABLE! They are sea moss, water lotus, and violet. They are made with essential oils, which I am ALL ABOUT. These are going to be perfect for my wax melter!

9

By: Boho Babe
Retail: $10.00
