Christmas Stocking. Retail: $1.00. Christmas Candy. Retail: $1.75. These are pretty much fillers- I got so much Christmas candy than I know what to do with…. I know I’m not eating them all!
Peaches & Petals December 2015 theme is called Treat Yo Self which is basically a spa/relaxation box, what girl doesn’t love to pamper herself?!
Each box only cost $14.99 for a month with 3-5 beauty items depending on the value of the items. Last month we were spoiled with more then 5 items so this month we had 5 items which is still more than what you would pay for if you bought them separately. I have a great deal at the end of the post so look out for the coupon code.
Anyway let’s get to the box!
When I saw this spoiler I knew I had to get a December box! This is soo cute and soft, it was definetely worth it. The design is beautiful and it’s long (past your knees unlike most robes). The only thing I wish was different is that the sleeves are not long enough. But it’s still a great robe to lounge around.
Lindt Milk Chocolate Truffle Bar. Retail: $2.00.
I love chocolate so this was eaten right away… it’s so creamy and smooth I wanted more! Yumm.
C. Booth Lavender Mineral Bath Soak. Retail: $14.99.
I don’t typically do baths but this is a HUGE bottle so it would last you awhile. Plus lavader smells so relaxing this will calm you down or keep you relaxed for sure.
Emerald Necklace & Earring Jewelry Set. Retail: ~$10.00.
These are pretty cute! I like that the necklace has three layers of the same color scheme. The earrings have the same gem stone as one of the necklaces so these are a cute set. I had to switch out the backings because these were too small to fit the backing on my ears.
Spa Bella Hot or Cold Rejuvenating Eye Mask. Retail: $18.00.
I wasn’t too thrilled whem I saw this mask but it’s pretty neat how you can use it for hot or cold application.
So for January’s spoiler, you’ll be getting a fruit infused water bottle! Talk about healthy water options, these would be great to have to start your healthy diet for 2016.
Overall my Peaches & Petals box came to about $79.99 which is s great deal if you’re only paying $14.99 for it. You can only pay $7.50 if you use my coupon code: PEACHAHOLIC for your first box! Awesome right? I would recommend getting the box asap because I don’t know how long the coupon lasts for. Enjoy!
Badass Kitchen Box sounds pretty badass doesn’t it? When I was given the opportunity to review this new subscription box my mind was going crazy because I loveee to cook, bake, and just eat all day so this was perfect for me to review. The box came with a intro about the theme, a recipe, and a piece of paper of all the things in the box.
Each box will have around 7 items for your kitchen needs like gadgets, accessories, recipes and hard to find ingredients around the world. Each box costs $39.99 for month to month, $114.00 ($38.00 each) for 3 months, and $209.99 ($35.00 each) for 6 months. Orders placed before the 15th of the month will insure your box by the end of the month. Orders placed after the 15th will receive your box at the end of the following month. So for $10 off your first order use the coupon code: BOXAHOLIC16.
So let’s get to the box!
Guittard Chocolate Chips. Retail: $3.99. These are al natural semi-sweet chocolate chips with a hint of vanilla. Yumm. It also came with a recipe for chocolate chip cookies but you can do so much with chocolate… I made chocolate truffles over the weekend and it was delicious!!
Nielsen Massey Madagascar Vanilla Extract. Retail: $10.00. I love vanilla extract- it brings out the sweet and savory taste of things-it’s just soo good. You can add to cooking and maybe a christmas drink called egg nog…
Wheeler’s Parline Pecans. Retail: $4.75. There’s nothing better than southern parline pecans straight from Mississippi. This is great to gift too if you wanted…
Trudeau Silicone Grip. Retail: $4.99. This usually comes in two so that you can pickup hot pots or the lid without burning yourself with the steam or heat from the stove. I like that it has the finger guards so that you don’t accidentally burn your fingers! It’s made out of plastic so it’s not floppy but sturdy to hold lids and keep you from burning yourself.
Tovolo Spatula. Retail: $6.50. I love baking and this is perfect for getting ALL the cookie dough out of the mixing bowl. It’s curved on one side and straight on the other so you’re covered for round bowls or square containers! Honesty, you can never have too many spatulas. I use them for everything.
Retro Magnetic Timer. Retail: $14.99. I think old looking things are pretty stylish now so this is pretty handy for those ovens that don’t have a timer/clock built in (like mine). I will be using this!
Mini Strainer/Sifter. Retail: $9.99. I’ve been meaning to get a small strainer for dusting powder sugar onto my cookies and madrilenes but since I drink a lot of loose teas- I just use my tea cup strainer which fits into a standard mug. Now I have a strainer just for baking/cooking! Woot-woot!
My box came out to $55.21, I was pretty impressed with the items I got because I will use most if not all of the products in this box! This is great for that friend or family member who just moved into a place and doesn’t have anything. But heck, you just might want it for yourself anyway (I would). These items are great brands & great quality, they will surely last for sure. So for $10 off your first Badass Kitchen Box using the code: BOXAHOLIC16.
Terra Bella Box is a beauty subscription that has completely natural ingredients from small handmade stores. Each month has a different theme but each box has a new featured shop with their item(s). It could range from makeup to skincare to bath products, they currently have 3 box options- 3 months of Terra Bella Lite ($50.00 with 2-3 items in each box), Terra Bella Box Trial Box ($24.00 for 4-6 items), and the Winter 2015 Limited Edition Box ($65.00 for over $100 worth of products). You can see the boxes here.
More about the Winter 2015 Limited Edition Box:
Every Winter 2015 Limited Edition Box contains well over $100 worth of handmade, natural bath and beauty products that were picked especially for this box. The items in this box are very unique, and some are much bigger and more expensive than you can find in the monthly Terra Bella Box. They are special enough to make any woman on your gift list feel loved and appreciated. Each box is $65 and there are very limited quantities left.
Now let’s get the the December box:
The holidays are coming up fast and if you are running out of ideas for customized gifts, you should check out Flicker & Flame. Flicker & Flame specializes in customized candles with a soy based wax so it burns a lot cleaner. Once you take the 30 second preference quiz, they create the perfect 10 oz candle combo for that month based on your favorite scents.
Each shipment comes with a beautiful box with extra tags for gifting and the box is already wrapped in a pretty ribbon! The box costs $25 a month but if you use the coupon code: “SmellGreat” you’ll get $10.00 off your first box!
If you order before the 16th, the candles will ship out the 26th and you’ll get your box sometime during the first week of the following month .
They are having a 4 Seasonal Sampler Pack of 7 oz candles (one for each season) on sale for $45. These candles aren’t your typical scents but they have multiple scents that compliment each other yet still gives you that seasonal scent.
The December box will have extra tags in case you want to give someone the candle or if you want to save it for an emergency Christmas gift.
For December’s base scent they created a holiday dessert in the oven smell. The scent has a strong butterscotch base, with the addition of vanilla and raisin, and top notes of cinnamon. It reminds me of two cookies- ginger bread men and sugar cookies! It’s such a soft sweet smell of comforting cookies that makes it so addicting to take a quick sniff when it’s not burning!
I really do love the candles from Flicker & Flame, there’s something about each unique scent that makes me feel so relaxed and happy when I smell them! You should take advantage of the coupon deal before it runs out.
Sockflow is a Korean socks box. You get to pick from high quality women, men, or children socks. It starts at $20.00 for 2 k-pop fashion socks, $25.00 for wool socks, and $30.00 for dress socks. If you get 3 pairs it would cost $25.00 and $40 for 3 pairs of dress socks.
There’s a coupon code offer that lasts till December 1st, 2015 for 25% off- if you use the code: LAUNCHDISCOUNT.
Since the box was shipping from Korea, it took less than a month for my socks to come in. Nevertheless, they came so let’s see what I got!
I got two adorable packaged socks:
The first sock had purple, gray and cream stripes from Deli Socks. It’s called Blueberry Cake! This company makes their sock based off of food so they have patterns like burgers, hot dogs, coffee beans, ice cream, and etc. They range from ~$3.50 per pair to ~$5.00 depending on the sock designs. I’m not quite sure if they deliver to America directly but that’s what Sockflow is for!
The second pair is from Socks the Language in I Love Green. These are unisex socks so I think these will goto a guy who “loves” the color green. This is way too “flashy” for me but if you love crazy, bright colored socks- this box is for you. This sock cost ~$4.30, the conversion is a bit different since Korea uses won as their currency. These socks don’t get delivered to America probably because they cost a lot to ship.
Overall the quality of these SockFlowsocks are nice, they are soft and comfy. They require extra care to stay in tip top soft condition so if you put in the extra money- you better take care of your socks! The monthly subscription is a bit high without the discount but with it you save at least $5.00 so it’s really not that bad considering where it is coming from.
Peaches & Petals November 2015 box is here! I’m so excited to show you what I got but first let’s get the details for this box. Peaches & Petals is a monthly subscription that has 3-5 items beauty and fashion accessories plus extra random goodies for $14.99. They have spoilers in the previous month so you know at least one product ahead of time. With that said, next month’s spoiler is a Kimono Peacock Robe! AND you get 50% off the first box with the code: “PEACHAHOLIC”.
So here’s what I got:
The Fringe Scarf. Retail: $10.00?. These came in all sorts of colors but I got black, it’s soft and long so you can double wrap it and get a nice fluffy layer around your neck. I really like the knitted design, and a fringe on the ends! And it smells like they sprayed their lovely “peaches and petals” scent on it too!
Pantene Pro-V Shampoo & Conditioner. Retail: $2.00. These are pretty much freebies, these are the only traveled sized items. I’ll use this for keeping my hair nice and soft.
Sweet Treat Dessert Candle. Retail: $2.50?. I thought this was ADORABLE! The only thing is that the beignet candle didn’t really smell like the donut. Maybe I have to burn it to smell it, but it looks so cute to burn!
Thank You Cards. Retail: $3.99. OMG Peaches & Petals sure know how to pick out super cute things. I will definitely use these blank Thank You cards for work and friend and family.
Infinity Forever Bracelet. Retail: $5.00?. I doubt this is covered in real gold but this is such a daily bracelet for any outfit. It has an extra long chain to fit any size wrist but it also fits into the smaller wrist like me too. If you really want, it can probably be worn on your ankle!
Totally Adorable Tea Infuser. Retail: $10.00. I’ve seen these around and never bought one so I’m so happy this popped up in my box! This little guys steeps in your cup while holding on to the rim.
After my low estimated prices, my box came out to $33.49 which is still a great deal because it’s at least double the subscription box price. I absolutely loved this box, everything will be used and I even ordered my next month’s box because they have this great deal- 50% off your first box! It’s only $7.49 when you use the coupon code: “PEACHAHOLIC”! I call that a steal. The robe is worth more than that price so if you like silky robes…. you better hurry and get your box.
Beyond Her Blush is a new beauty box that has 5-6 beauty products that achieve the look of the month. Each product is curated by a celebrity artist and there’s a free step by step YouTube tutorial to show you how to create the look. The box can be as low as $18.00 a month to $20.00 depending on your plan. Plus, you can use the code: THANKS for 10% off your subscription. This offer lasts until December 2nd, so hurry!
This month’s theme is Glitter Glam and it’s also the first box ever! I LOVE the packaging! It wouldbe such a cute present on it’s own!
Chella Highlighter Pencil. Retail: $18.00. This is a staple beauty product and I’ve gotten so many of them- I literally still have my first pencil. It’s a great all over pencil to highlight, brighten, or conceal your blemishes especially for lighter skin tones-medium tones.
City Color Cosmetics in Pearl Primer. Retail: $3.99. I don’t think they meant this literally a primer but this has a shimmery white base to maximize whichever eyeshadow you layer on your lids.
Eyelyn Iona Natural & Organic Mascara. Retail: $21.50. This is the biggest mascara container I’ve ever seen. I love the wide long wand applicator because it easily brushes through my lashes without clumping and it looks natural. I like the brand though- can’t get enough of natural makeup products! It’s smudge resistant, lash thickening, lengthening, and defining eyelashes without harming them.
Glamour Dolls Gypsy Eyeliner. Retail: $1.99. I like that this has two colors in one, it makes traveling easy because you get 2 in 1. I’ve never use lavender before but I like to use darker colors.
Ramy Whipped Liqui-air Color for Eyes and Cheeks. Retail: $19.00. This is another double makeup product in one. You can use this for your lips or cheeks, and eyes too. This is a pretty universal color so it works well for all skin tones.
Starlooks “Gold Coast” Eye Shadow. Retail: $5.00. I love the color gold and bronze together so this eyeshadow would be my go to everyday. I love dimensional eyeshadows because it’s one color but you get different levels of color in certain lighting.
My total Beyond Her Blushbox value was $69.48! Overall I like the variety of the box and how you get a product for a complete look. All the products are full-sized and in this box you get 6 instead of 5 items like most beauty subscriptions. You get a mix of brands and I like that they do a YouTube video of a complete look.
This month’s BuckBin theme is Oktobeerfest Bin so there’s tons of beer accessories! Each month for $20.00 you get around 7 drinking/party items based on the monthly theme. It ranges from tools to accessories for beer/alcohol. Some of the things are things I am familiar with but they always put new and unique things on the box so you really get the party experience. This box has by far blown me away so if they keep topping the last month I would tell you to grab one before they are sold out! I really like that they listened and put in the names and uses for each item! Go BuckBin!
So here’s the October box:
Das BOOOOOT. Retail: $3.95. This is a smaller boot but it still holds a liter of beer so it’s a decent amount of alcohol. It’s made of plastic so it’s light and pretty durable. I don’t know about you but drinking from a beer boot is pretty intense… are you ready for Octobeer fest?
Bombs. Retail: $2.00? for 2. I’m sure this would cost more but I don’t know where to find them online. These look like shot glasses but they are used for measuring bombs (shots dropped in beer then chugged). You can use them for shots too but these are soo adorable I’ll drink beer from these ;P
Bottle Stein. Retail: $6.99. I thought this was pretty awesome! I knew exactly what it was and it’s a cool device for your beer bottle… it’s basically a lid for your beer bottle! It’s pretty heavy for a lid so this won’t just flop open but I found that it’s wobbly when it’s flipped open but other than that it does a great great keeping your opened beer free from dust and such falling into your beer.
Bottle Bong. Retail: $4.99. My roommates definitely dove into this first… it surprisingly goes down pretty fast but it leaves a lot of foam in the bottle… but it’s understandable. Plus you can take it with you in your pocket!
Forget Hangover Patches. Retail: $14.56 for 3 patches. These are all natural and should last you all night. Put in on 24hrs before drinking and it’ll supply you with the nutrient for fighting hangovers.
Ping Pong Balls. Retail: $4.00. You can never have enough beer pong balls! They literally get lost like no other…or they roll into things you just don’t want to touch or use for beer pong… just saying.
BuckBin Oktobeerfest t-shirt. Retail: $20.00. This is a nice soft red tee with a black BuckBin logo for Octobeerfest. As a graphic designer I would’ve printed this lovely logo in white ink but that’s just me.
Overall, my box was worth $56.49, drinking can get pretty expensive but if you get this box- it’ll definitely help with the cost. I can see this box being purchased as party- house warming gift, don’t you? Or you can just bring the box to a party and drink your heart out using everything in this box.
