I did my very first Cara Box Exchange this month! I had never heard about a Cara Box until July, so I decided to sign up for August and see what happens. 

What is Cara Box? It's a great way for you to meet people, get to know them and send them fun gifts! Click here if you want to find out more about Cara Box or how to sign up for September's exchange.


The theme for this month was, Season's of Life. I was fortunate enough to have met Jennifer from The Beautiful Little Fools! She put together a box for me and we got to know each other quite well over the past month. She is such a sweet girl and I loved getting to know her better!


Here's a picture of the things that Jennifer sent me :) With the pa…

Coupaw is having an awesome deal going on right now! You can get a 2 month subscription to Petbox for only $29! Usually, a 2 month subscription would cost $58. 
I did a little searching on the internet and found a promo code for Coupaw. If you use the code "TV" at checkout, you can get an additional 20% off of any purchase at Coupaw. When I used the promo code, it took off $5.80 so my total was only $23.20!
That's 70% off of the original price! If you were interested in trying out Petbox, I'd do it now before the deal ends! Petbox isn't just a subscription box for dogs. When I was ordering mine, I noticed that they had an option for cats too!

A couple of weeks ago, I received a package from NunaatNunaat is a company that sells hair products. If any of you guys have seen pictures of me, then you know how long my hair is! I'll post a picture of it in this post too. The thing about my hair is that it gets really difficult trying to take care of it all the time. I can't go 24 hours without washing my hair because it's so thin.
"Use as part of your normal hair cleansing regimen to combat dryness. Natural moisturizers found in shea butter will revitalize even the driest of hair. Experience noticeably stronger, healthier hair after just one shampoo."

The people at Nunaat recommended that I try their Karite Special with Shea Butter C…

It feels like I haven't reviewed a subscription box in a while. So I decided to order a couple of different ones to get back into the flow of it all! Today, I received my Happy Dog Box! (If you use my link you can get your first box for free, just pay $4.99 for shipping). One of the reasons why I got Happy Dog Box was because I haven't bought a subscription box for my puppies in awhile and I thought that they deserved a treat. Another reason why I got it was because I got my first box for free. Now let me tell you a little story about that. I paid $9.99 for shipping for my first box. Well once I paid and everything, it said that my friends could use my referral code and get their box for $4.99 in ship…

I have a question for those of you who are bloggers and offer sponsorships on your blog. I was thinking about opening up my blog to sponsors but how do I go about doing that? I know a lot of bloggers use Passion Fruit but now they are starting to charge $9 a month for services. I understand they want to make some money but I don't feel like my blog is big enough for those kind of charges. I was thinking about using Adproval but I have no idea how to make all of the ads! What do you guys do?

1. What do you miss most about being a kid?
I really miss going to my Grandma's house all of the time. I used to spend almost every weekend and a couple of weeks of summer at my Grandma's house when I was younger. It was the best time ever! We used to stay up until the wee hours of the morning playing Old Maid and UNO :)
2. Dd you have a nickname growing up? What was it?
I never had a nickname growing up. Everybody called me Erica, or when I got into trouble it was always Erica Lynn LOL. I guess that a lot of people did call me Blondie and Goldie too. People still call me Blondie today. 
3. What was your favorite thing to do at recess?
Four square was the best game EVER. My girlfriends and I used to spend so much time playing four square. If we weren't playing four square, we were pretending like we were Cheetah Girls. Do you guys remember the Cheetah Girls? It seems so lo…

Wei Golden Root Purifying Mud Mask Review

The first time that I ever heard of Wei Golden Root Purifying Mud Mask, I received it in my Birchbox for July. I use facial masks every week so I was excited to try a new one out! 

"This purifying mask helps to revitalize lifeless skin with its velvety ultra-soft texture that not only deeply cleans, but also minimizes the appearance of pores and refines skin's appearance and texture. Benefits: Golden Root keeps skin looking youthful and smooth. Purges toxins and impurities from skin. Helps to rid of dead skin cell buildup. Suitable for all skin types."

One pod is supposed to be enough to get you one full use. My first impression of the mud mask was that it reminded me of pudding or chocolate fondue LOL. The texture was really smooth though. It was so easy to apply to my face. At first, I thought that the mask was too thin. It would go on really thin but as I added mor…

Goodies Company Subscription Box August 2013 Review

Image
My Goodies Co. box came in the mail today and I couldn't get it into my house fast enough to rip it open! I've been seeing other people's reviews on their blogs for the past week now and I've been anxiously waiting for mine to come in. I guess that Goodies Co. started to send out different items in each box now. I'm not complaining because from what I saw, I got a lot of different items than other people. I received box number 5 this month.

Cost: $7/month.
I can never complain about the price of Goodies Co. It's so cheap and they send a lot of really great products!
If you're interested in receiving a Goodies box, just send me an e-mail in my contact form and I'll send you one! You can skip the waiting line that way, I hear it's kind of long now. 

Alo Drink Value: $4.59
The ingredients to this drink are; aloe vera, orange and passion fruit. Aloe vera??? I can honestly say that I have never, ever tried a drink where one of the main drinks was aloe vera. Wh…

Wine Wear Review

Image
I was so excited when I found out that I was chosen to review Wine Wear! So basically, Wine Wear is just like a greeting card for a wine bottle. It's a fun way to gift a bottle of wine to anybody! I was sent "Santa" and I think it's so cute! It's perfect for bringing a bottle of wine to a Christmas party.

There are tons of different designs to choose from on Wine Wear's website. There are designs for Father's/Mother's Day, Thanksgiving, Thank You gift, Weddings and so much more! All designs are $3.49 each unless you want to buy a pack. There is a Christmas pack and a Variety pack for $14, each comes with 5 different designs.

I love the whole idea of Wine Wear! I am definitely going to give this as a gift to one of my friends around Christmas time. It costs around the same as a greetings card and it makes a bottle of wine so much better! I am definitely thinking about buying more designs in the near future.

I re…
