Citrus Lane November 2013

We have subscribed to Citrus Lane for Eli for over 1.5 years now!  :)  This is a unboxing of the boy box for a 4 year old.  (Yikes, when did Eli grow up?!?!)  Citrus Lane is awesome for kids!  We have enjoyed almost every box that we have gotten.  :)  We actually just signed up for a subscription for Jack!  :)  CL is $25.00 a month for the standard box.  And they just added a box for $12.50 (2-3 items) and a deluxe box for $49.00 (a standard box PLUS extra items).  Use this link to get $10.00 off your first box!  :)

All the goodies! 

I am going to start with the most disappointing thing in the box...  This is a code for tinyprints that states " 4 free address label pages when you spend $99.00"  Really?  Not going to happen!  :/

Faber Castell Doodling Pad ($2.99)  Eli is really getting into writing and this will go to use!
Faber Castell Jumbo Beeswax Crayons ($9.57)  We have gotten these in CL before but they are great!

Organicasaurus Cheddar Cheese Dinos ($1.75) Eli and Jack both loved these!

Green Toys Build A Burger ($7.00)  Eli liked this.  :)

Bumkins Lunch Bag ($12.95)  Fun, cute and perfect for snacks on the go!  :)

Paid: $18.75 (annual subscription with a coupon code on top!)
Value: $34.26

Good value and items that Eli likes and will use!  Another win for CL!  :)

Fortune Cookie Soap Box Winter edition!

Ok, I have said it before and I will say it again and again...  FORTUNE COOKIE SOAP BOX is my FAVORITE subscription box!  I wish it wasn't just quarterly...  I want it every month!  lol.  This is a quarterly box (they have Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter boxes) and the cost is $19.99 every 3 months.  It is a great way to try out their products and scents.  Each item is handmade and WONDERFUL!  :)  AND in each box you will recieve a $10.00 coupon code to use like cash on their site!  So it's like getting the box for only $9.99!  YEAH!!

OMG!  I love just opening this box!  lol.

First up "Holiday Worlds" whipped cream body butter.  I the Christmas Town scent and it smells so good!  :)  Christmas tree esque!  :)
"Sandy Claws" body butter.  When I got this it was melted. :(  But popped it into the freezer and it's good to go now!  This smells awesome too!  Chocolate!!

"Sally" fortune cookie soap.  So cute (love the color) and smells SOOOOO good!  Cotton and leaves...  UGH!  ;)
"What's This?" roll on perfume.  This smells like sugar cookies to me!  :)  But it's a contest to see who can guess the right scents...  So I guess we will have to wait to find out what it really smells like!  (Other than delicious!)

"Oogie Boogie" OCD hand sanitizer.  Berries and cinnamon...  Need I say more?!?!
"Zero" dry shampoo.  I have never tried dry shampoo before.  This will be fun to try!  :)

"Lock, Shock and Barrel" bath melt.  Pine, spruice and spice.  I can't wait for my bath!  ;)
"Jack" bath fizzy.  Lemon, menthol, moss, cranberries, OH MY!  YUMMMM!

I just love this box!  I also got a code for $10.00 off my next purchase!  :)  YEAH!

Love With Food November Box

I decided to try Love With Food when Goodies went out of business.  I got to try this box for $2.00 with a discount code (no longer available).  Normally the box would be $10.00 plus $2.00 shipping.  :)  A very cool thing that they do is donate a meal to a hungry child with the purchase of each snack box!  :)  I love that!  :)  Lets see what they have in the Fall Foods box!  :)

YUMMM!!!  :)

I loved some of the items in this box!  But I am not a corn person, so the dried corn was lost on me.  lol. 

Love with Food October 2013

Love With Food is a snack subscription box.  :)  They sent me an October box to review for FREE!  :)  Normally a box will be $10.00 plus $2.00 shipping each month.  A cool thing that they do is every snack box that is sent out, they donate a meal to a hungry child!  I love that!  So lets get to reviewing!
