Graze Box – Review + Special Offer

IMG_0420

 

I don’t know about you, but I know with me I LOVE to snack. Especially throughout the day, but honestly the variety and selections can become limited especially when I’m in the mood for something particular. Now, what If there was a service that took the task of getting good snacks to your door?! Well there is, and its called Graze. The reason behind the company is part of its logo, “snacking reinvented”, and with the variety of snacks I tried they definitely have reimagined snacking with flavors and tastes I would have never thought of.

The team at Graze believes in working with other smaller companies to create their snacks. They offer different labeled snacks, depending on your want and need: variety, snacks with health benefits, and perfect portions.

I was able to try a great sampling of what Graze has to offer, and was I pleased. Some of which are my new favorites (Honeycomb Flapjack & Garden of England) and I will be ordering to have at my office desk when the midday craving for food happens.

My friends over at Graze, want to share the fun of snacking with you that they are offering a special to my readers. Get your 1st & 5th Graze Boxes for FREE. Just use code: LIZM1D4DB at checkout.

Happy Snacking!!

Wantable – March 2014 Accessories Box Review

1187181_10100191787877799_1139317848_n

Ive already had the pleasure to do a review earlier last year on Wantable, but only was able to review the  makeup subscription. With Spring around the corner this week, I knew an update to my accessories was in order and what better way to do that then with Wantable Accessory Boxes.

For those unfamiliar with Wantable, they are a start-up company that launched in August 2012 with the beauty category, has since introduced fashion accessories and intimates categories. The focus of this monthly subscription box is being a discovery platform where they provide customers with hand-picked, curated, boutique makeup, accessories and intimates – they utilize style quiz answers for each individual when they pick select pieces or products in each box. They work with brands like Coobie, Betsey Johnson, FACE Stockholm (sold at J Crew), Color Club, Besame and many more.

What makes this monthly subscription box company different from the others is, the products are full size, and the subscription runs at $36/month or can be purchased as a single box for $40. Shipping is free and you can cancel, return or skip anytime!

Based on my preferences this month this is what I was likely to receive:

1948091_10100191792633269_24907544_n

In my box this month I received the following products:

  • The Carol Bracelet – Silver toned bangle with pearls
  • Abby Necklace – Small circular pendant on small chain
  • Melody Bracelet – Geometric designed bangle with gold and peach tones
  • Sonya Scarf – Soft, bright peach fabric

The total retail value of the products above is $77 & for the subscription value of either $36/month or $40 for one time box – WOW!!

First of all, I LOVE scarves. I have a ton of them, if you ask my husband he will agree – they practically have their own closet space. Funny as it may be I don’t have a peach color scarf – and since receiving this scarf I have gotten a TON of complements. LOVE my Sonya Scarf!!

Pearls are another staple for me, I have alot of necklaces and bracelets that have pearls incorporated in them (real and fake) – however I don’t have a simple pearl bangle like this. The Carol Bracelet is nice to have a simple go to piece like this, which can help dress up an everyday outfit – being more put together.

Gold bangles have been a big hit in stores for spring and summer and with this peach and gold bangle  Melody Bracelet, helps bring a fun refreshing twist on it with the geometric shape (a new favorite).

Last but not least is the Abby Necklace. It’s a great simple necklace, and hits the trends perfectly. I myself am not a fan of the necklace, as I mentioned above if I wear necklaces it’s usually pearl related or nothing at all.

Based on my review above, I am impressed with the accessories from Wantable and am ready to try out the intimates line.

If your ready to try out for yourself, visit this link: Wantable

Enjoy!!

BeautyBox 5 – January Review

1624498_10100165814224209_786140812_n

Next review I was given was from BeautyBox5. For those unfamiliar with the company, BeautyBox5 is a subscription based beauty sampling program that send 5 cosmetic samples to your door monthly. It is geared to helping introduce women to new cosmetic products and educating them as well. The products vary monthly and are based on best products for your lifestyle.

Memberships perks for being a monthly BeautyBox5 subscriber is:

All members receive FREE shipping, & receive exclusive discounts from their partner brands.

In my monthly subscription box, I received the following items:

  • NYX Cosmetics Love in Rio Eyeshadow Palette
  • Body Drench Daily Moisturizing Lotion
  • Ofra Cosmetics Sultry Lipgloss Plumper
  • Clean & Clear Morning Burst Hydrating Gel Moisturizer
  • Every Beauty Flexible Foot Smoother

 

The products themselves value at over $40, however the subscription is only $12/monthly.

There is also the option to subscribe quarterly for $30 (save $6), or yearly for $99 (save $45). Plus with each subscription you receive a bonus gift card to Soap.com

One of the products I absolutely loved, was the Flexible Foot Smoother. It reminded me of a dish sponge in shape, and a pumice stone used for pedicures. This time of year in the Northeast the winter weather can dry out your skin and this item can be used not only on your feet, but on dry patches of skin on your body. Great to exfoliate the dry skin so that the Body Drench lotion that was included can absorb.

The Clean and Clear Gel Moisturizer was very different from the normal moisturizer I have used and seen. This gel based one is lightweight, fresh smelling and great for those of us with oil/acne prone skin. Pleasantly surprised on the product.

The NYX Eyeshadow palette is and nice neutral. With the trio of colors you can make a great day time or evening look, especially with  the two-sided applicator to do fine work. The plumping lip gloss pair perfect with the eyeshadow palette. The berry color is perfect this time of year, helping accentuate your lips.

Overall I loved the BeautyBox5 and think it’s a great option for women to try out new products with the season, and for the price it totally worth it.

Austin Lloyd – January 2014 Review

1062171_10100162348080389_1930522655_n

This weekend I had the pleasure to hang out with my son and enjoy my newest review (really more for him) with a great bonding experience.

Austin Lloyd is a Atlanta, Georgia based company with the concept that parents not only want to educate their children, but may be overwhelmed with the different choices out on the market. They take the guess-work out of that by not only providing toys your child will enjoy, but ones that will also aid in the development of your child’s skills.

Another great idea behind Austin Lloyd is they like to help those children less fortunate, in local charities. In each package sent for a subscription there is a card on how you can donate. This is an amazing act that not only helps others who don’t have much, but helps those parents who just purchased new toys/books to declutter their homes – SO smart!!

In my box this month, as you can see above I received items for the play level of 0-5 months all pertaining to rhythm and sound. Items included: Hush Little Baby book, Happy Quartett (4 separate fabric cubes with different sounds and colors/textures), Musical Pudgie Puppy (a cuddly puppy that when you pull the shamrock tail plays “rock a by baby”), and last but not least, Boxer the Dog Rattle (the cutest baby rattle, with hand stitched facial features).

Upon opening this box, that package alone was amazing. With a personalized name tag for my son &  details of the items included with the theme for the month – I was blown away. The items alone this month individually priced are valued over $60 and for the monthly subscription price of $49.99, it is truly an amazing deal. I’m my opinion this by far is the best children’s geared subscription I have seen so far, and I am definitely signing up for each months box – for a little something special for my son to enjoy.

My friends over a Austin Lloyd want to share in the learning experience with you, and have generously offered 10% off your first order with the following code: Savvyad42b

Just visit this link (Austin Lloyd), and at check out use the code above to receive your 10% off your first order.

I hope you enjoy your Austin Lloyd box with your child(ren) as well.

Happy Playing!!
