Christmas in July DottieBox Review

I was SO EXCITED when I heard that DottieBox was having a Christmas in July sale!  I have wanted to try out DottieBox and so I snatched one up!  :)  It was $10.00 plus $6.00 for shipping.  Normally, DottieBox is $20 plus shipping, so it was half off!  :)

The box is so cute!  I love the little twine tied on it!  :)

All the awesome goodies!  :)

Whispering Willow ($6.00)  Smells yummy!

Ebe and Ash Tree earings ($3.50)  I don't have my ears pierced, but my sister likes these!

Mommy and Me Boutique hair ties ($4.95)  I have been wanting to try these!

Make it Stick nail art ($1.00)

Catch some Raes butterfly toothpicks ($3.60)  Not the best picture...  lol.

Sharee Boutique hair chalk ($5.50)  I already used these on Eli!  lol

Paid: $16.00
Value: $24.55

I LOVED this box!  I think this subscription will have to make it's way into my Christmas present list!  :)

SOAR month 3 Review

This is the last month that we will recieve SOAR.  :/  Eli has enjoyed it, but it is a little above his level for now.  I am thinking that when he gets a little older we might resubscribe!  Because how can I not get my little super hero his own super hero box?!  lol.  SOAR is a Super Hero box!  It includes stickers, a comic book, a trading card and an extra special item each month.  :)  Instead of changing the items every month, you will start by recieving month 1, then 2, then 3, etc.  That way you get all the comic books in order!  :)  This sub box is $24.99 each month, and if you sign up for 3, 6, or 12 months you get a discount.

This is SOAR box 3.  We recieved 2 sheets of stickers, a Max trading card, comic book #3 of the series, a retro crayon pen (the one that you take out the color and push up the next one...  like an old fashioned mechanical pencil) and a threadUP bag. 
Our crayon pen tips were all broken except for two!  :(  But I contacted the company and they are sending another one.  :)
Paid: $6.67
I am sad that Eli won't get the super hero box any longer...  But it's ok too because it's still over his head.  :)

I can't wait for the next bag to come out!  :)  I was really impressed with all the products!  :) Randomness Box (Boy)

So is a bargain site for Mama's!  lol.  They seem to have some good things with good prices!  :)  And every once and a while they have what they call "Randomness" bags.  :)  That is when you get to choose a section (mama, total random, boy or girl) and they send you a bag/box of "randomness".  I signed up for one and this is what I got!  :)

Over all I wasn't so impressed by this box.  I don't think I will be doing another randomness again.  But it was fun to do one time!  :)

FiberChoice Fruity Bites-- Smiley 360 Mission

I was choosen for the FiberChoice Fruity Bites Smiley360 Mission!  YEAH!

I was sent a coupon to get a FREE bottle of FiberChoice Fruity Bites, so off to Target I headed!  First of all the bottle is HUGE and has so many fruity bites inside!  I was super surprised with the size that I was able to get for FREE!  :) 

I brought home my bottle and tried them out.  The fruity bites taste JUST LIKE Eli's fruit gummy snacks!  They were really good!  It's a good thing that it specifies how many you should eat in a 24 hour period (6 bites) because I might have eaten more!  lol.  There are 3 flavors: pear, cherry and blue raspberry.  I like to eat two different flavors together to make it like a party in my mouth!  ;) 

An added bonus to this product?  It's kid friendly too! 

Over all these are a great and yummy way to get your daily dose of fiber!  I will be adding these to my vitamin routine!  :)

Citrus Lane July 2013

Eli's favorite time of the month has come!  He anxiously awaits his Citrus Lane box for days after I say it's been shipped!  :)  And he knows that yellow stripe!  lol.
Citrus Lane is my favorite kids box so far.  It's changed a little over the last few months (they are now for newborn to 5 years old, and they don't have themes each month) but it is still a great box!  We have subscribed for over a year now and have only had 3 boxes that just weren't up our ally!  So over all it's been great!  :) 
Citrus lane is $25 a month, or less if you sub for 3, 6 or 12 months.  :)  Also, if you use my link you will get $10 off your first box!  :)

The first look is always yellow paper and a cute sticker!  Then you open it up to see all the goodies!  :)
Melissa and Doug Create-a-Car ($5.02) Eli has been wanting to build a race car all summer! 
Postagram App credit ($10.00)  Cool app!  You can send postcards to anyone right from your phone!

Cool It Buddy ($4.99) With the way that Eli has been hurting himself, these will come in handy!

Goodbyn Bento Box ($9.50) This will come in handy!
Goodbyn Dishwasher Safe Stickers ($3.50)  Fun for Eli!

Just Strawberries ($1.25) Eli might like these...  If not, Jack loves dried fruit!  lol

Paid: $18.75 (annual subscription with a discount!)
Value: $34.26

Eli loved the car!  He can't wait to make it!  :)
