Thursday Thoughts

 Linking up again for Thursday Thoughts.

  • I think you can now officially call it addicted to Awkward.  I'm now on season 2 and it is so so so good.  Anyone else watch?
  • I really need to just not buy Reeses Chips Ahoy. They are cookie crack and I can sit and eat a whole bag in one sitting. I am that bad. Oh and while I'm banning food I need to not get cool Ranch Doritos too.  I can't do the whole bag in one sitting but it only takes about 2 ;) and C has gotten my love of them too and he can down them.
  • Going to see Neighbors tonight with M.  Love date night :)
  • Posting about the Seven Dwarfs opening has me really wanting to go to WDW now. Anyone up for a weekend trip? It's only a 10hr drive for me and I could go down and back in one weekend ;)  While I'm on it don't forget to check out my giveaway on my FB page. Giveaway
  • I've built so many Legos the last two days I think I have Lego fingers. 
  • I still have to read A Fault in the Stars. I've had the book since March and I haven't cracked it yet.  The movie comes out next weekend and I want to read it first so I better get on it.
So what are you thinking about today? Anything happening this weekend?

What I LOVE Wednesday

Who wants to know what I'm loving today? :)

My friends have been telling me to watch this show forever and I finally started this week and I'm hooked. WOW how did I miss this and who knew that Mtv still made good shows. :)  I'm only on season one but I hear it just keeps up the awesome. I can't wait.

I'm loving the pool. I know it's just the beginning of the season but C and I went for 3 hours yesterday and then we came home and he crashed. He barely finished his lunch and he crashed on the couch and then I moved him to the car to go and pick up N and he stayed asleep.  In all he slept about 2.5hours which is unheard of for him.  If he is going to do that we may need to pool everyday day ;)

I've been wanting some Apothecary Jars for awhile now and I'm still looking. I currently love these from Pottery Barn. Problem is I want them for my mantle and for my bathroom and pretty much everywhere.  I need to decide the best spot so I don't go Apothecary overboard.

I'm loving these guys and I almost didn't offer them up for the giveaway. :)  But I'm celebrating the opening of the Seven Drawfs Mine Train Coaster and am hosting a giveaway over on my facebook page. You can check it out and enter HERE.  It is celebrating two of my favorite things Disney and roller coasters all wrapped in one.  I had to celebrate it!!!

What are you loving today?

Monday Morning Musings

disclosure: This post contains referral links.

Happy Memorial Day Monday. Thank you to all the men and women who are or who have served for our country.

Now onto some Monday Morning Musings when it is still actually morning.  C woke up this morning with a hacky cough so we got up way earlier then I was wanting today. 

Weekend Update:  We are having a home weekend for this holiday. Friday we went shopping to try and find N some new shoes.  He just got his last pair at the beginning of April but he has worn the toe out of them already :( Of course he wants Nike and we are having trouble finding some he likes in his size.  Saturday morning N and I got up to go and pick strawberries and since I knew they would close early we got up and went at 8am.  Then we just stayed around the house and played until M went to work that night.

Sunday we had the cousins over to go to the pool and then lunch back at the house.  I somehow didn't take any pictures of all the kids together but I did get one of the way my boys were chilling as they dried off before we left.

I  kindof love that C decided to use my towel since pink is his favorite color. :) the rest of the day was spent playing with the neighbors and I got to take a nap.  I'm not normally a napper but I was so tired and having a hard time keeping my eyes open.

Upcoming Week:  Not sure what we are going to try and do today.  N says he wants to go to the park so we might see what time everyone gets up and then head that way for a little bit.  Of course the one he wants to go to doesn't have much shade so it will be a little hot there. :( N has school the rest of the week so we will do that and probably pool a bit in the afternoons before dinner.  No other real plans for the week.

Box News: I'm not expecting any boxes this week that I can think of. I skipped both Wantable makeup and Julep this month so I won't be getting those :(  Although Julep has some great Memorial Day mystery box choices so I may have to get one of those today :)

Business News:  The summer special at Walt Disney World is coming to an end.

Hurry! Walt Disney World's Summer Discount expires June 6! Take the plunge this summer and save up to 30% on rooms at select Walt Disney World Resort hotels for stays most nights June 15 – August 28, 2014. 

And for Stampin' Up they have announced a blowout special on their retired products.

Stampin' Up is having a Retired list blowout with some items on sale up to 50% off. Go and check it out and remember that retired items are as available and will sell out.

That is it for today. How was your weekend? Did you have a long weekend too?  What are you up to this week?

Citrus Lane Mystery Box - Boon Water Bugs Box

Disclosure: My referral link is below and I will get credits if you join through it. :)

WOW I was really surprised to see a Citrus Lane box on my porch today. I had ordered one of the latest mystery boxes but last time I checked the tracking it had said Saturday so to get it on Thursday is a surprise.

Citrus Lane has started offering mystery boxes occasionally. They let you pick on of the items and the rest are a surprise. They also tell you the ages and I've been waiting for one a little older so that we may be closer to our age so when they offered one for 2+ and I could pick the Boon Water Bugs which we don't have I decided to grab one.  I'm still hoping for a 3+ box but maybe next time. :)

First look and I was happy. A couple things I knew and we don't have and I knew that C would like the top item ;) I mean really it makes noise so who wouldn't like it. LOL

And all of the contents, I'm not sure there is a theme for this one. I think I thought maybe it had a water theme since I got to pick the water bugs but that is so not the case and I'm ok with that.
  • Melissa and Doug Create a Craft Race Car (Age4+) ($6.69) - I actually think we have one of these around this house some where but we haven't put it together yet and this is perfect since with two both boys can do their own and as I'm learning that is very important.
  • Barefoot Books Driving my Tractor 2 In a Box puzzles (Ages3+) ($13.49) - I think we have this book around here so I'll need to pull it back out. I do like these puzzles and I just cleared out all out baby puzzles so this is a nice step up for C to do.
  • Zoli Sumo Snack Stack Snack Pile ($14.50) - At first I was like huh but then when I pulled it up my boys were like this is perfect for taking snacks to the pool.  So we will be keeping this and using it for that. 
  • Green Sprouts Water Bottle (8.29) - You can never have too many water bottles in the summer. C has already claimed this one as his.
  • Green Toys Build a Burger (Ages 2+) ($8) - This was a Citrus Lane exclusive so I estimated a price. We actually got this before but again its nice to have two of somethings and we love Green Toys around our house. This will be great for grill play this summer.
  • Alex Dot to Dot Chalks (Ages 3+) ($5.99) - Again an item we got quite awhile ago and since its chalk it is long gone.  Setting this next to the door to go out right now. We love chalk at our house and our back patio is proof of that. LOL
  • Hohner kids 6" Colored Tambourine (Ages 3+)($8.99) - Uhm really Citrus Lane must know my boys and know how they love to make noise. C is already eyeing this and I told him we would open it after dinner. Help me now.
  • Boon Water Bugs (Ages 9+) ($7.99) - So this is the item that determined which box we got. Since pool season just started here we will be taking this with us there to play with.
They mystery box said it would have a value of $80+ and mine came to only $73.94 but I use Amazon prices and I know they use manufacturer retail.  Since the box was only $39 plus $4.95 shipping I'm very happy.  These are items that we will get use of and most have already made their way around my house. This was a special mystery box but we also get the monthly box which is $29 a month or less with a longer subscription and gets an assortment of items.  You can get duplicates in these mystery boxes since they are leftovers from past boxes but you know me I'm a sucker for a surprise box. :)

So what do you think of this mystery box?  Did you get one? What was in yours? I'm still hoping for another one with an even older age and I'd be all over that.


ETA - I updated it with the water bugs I had forgotten to put them in my breakdown. :)

Thursday Thoughts

 Linking up again for Thursday Thoughts.

  • N has to go to his first eye doctor appointment today.  We shall see how this goes. His only concern was that he didn't want to get any shots. Pretty sure I can guarantee that for today :)
  • As much as I don't want the thunderstorm we really could use the rain today. So torn between what we need and what I want.
  • Looking at signing the boys up for swim lessons and I think I will have to get in the pool with C so not sure I want to start those next week.  That water will still be so cold. LOL
  • I find it really funny when N is talking to his friends and he starts telling them about rides at Walt Disney World and what they will like and what they won't.  He loves planning almost as much as I do.
  • Today is Cs last day of preschool :(  He has been counting down all week and is very excited to stay home and play with mommy all summer. Mommy on the other hand is going to miss her quiet mornings.  
  • So what am I planning on doing today? Going shopping. I've decided I want a gallery type wall on my blank wall in my family room so I'm on the hunt.Heading out to TJMaxx/Homegoods without my helpers.  I don't really like to take him into the breakable area of those stores. LOL
So what are you thinking about today?

What I love Wednesday

Who is ready for some LOVE today?

Clearing out. :)  I had a yardsale on Saturday and then this morning I took 10 totes and tons of loose stuff to a friend who is starting an online consignment page.  I'm glad to hopefully get a little money back for my stuff but I'm also glad to see some of it go.  

My crazy boy. He will come over and say he needs to cuddle me and that really means squeeze in the chair with me.  Yesterday one of my groups had stop and take a selfie thread so we did. He is such a ham.

OMG who watched the Supernatural finale last night? There was so much going on in there and that ending. I was bawling and then I was like Holy Crap. No really I yelled that at the tv. LOL M thought I was crazy.  I actually kept the episode on the Tivo so I can watch it again now that I know the ending to see if there is foreshadowing which is something this show does really well. But lets just leave it with Holy Crap.  I can't not wait until next season.

Moving onto something sweet I am addicted to microwave S'mores. LOL I'm not sure what makes me think it has to be warm outside to have them but they are so good and so quick to make.

What are you loving today?

TV Talk Tuesday "Now It's Time to Say Goodbye"

Well it's been awhile since I've done a TV Talk and with all the season/series finales on right now I want to do a Now it's time to say goodbye post. This is going to be about the shows that I've either dropped this season or that have been cancelled.  I will do a post soon about the shows that I think really stepped up their game later on.

Who remembers my post back in the fall with the chart for the shows I plan to watch this season?  If you want a refresher you can see it HERE. Lets go day by day based on my Fall Chart.


  • How I Met your Mother - This was the finale season of this show and as much as I like the show overall this season just dragged on and on for me. M and I finally watched the finale the other day. It was time for this one to come to an end.
  • Sleepy Hollow  - oh I had such high hopes for this show and I really tried to watch it but it just did not hold my attention at all. It is filmed locally so I was hoping to add it to my rotation but I ended up watching only about 4 episodes and then the rest sat on my Tivo until a couple weeks ago when I finally had to cut them loose.
  • Hmm well there is nothing on my chart but I had picked up Star Crossed as a mid season show and I really enjoyed it. I think it got off to a rocky start and people didn't give it a chance. Then they moved it to Monday and that didn't help things at all. I'm actually sad this one got cancelled as I think it was set up pretty good for next season. Oh and very random fact I just found out but Matt Lanter is the voice of Anakin Skywalker on the Clone Wars cartoons. LOL so he will be at StarWars Weekends in Disney Hollywood Studios. Who knew?
  • The Tomorrow People - I was slow on the go with this one. I had a half dozen shows recorded before I started to watch and then I was hooked.  It actually had decent ratings but during the upfronts the CW said it was between this one and Beauty and the Beast and the second has a better online presence. So just shows that if you love a show then share the love and talk about it with your friends online so the network can see.  I think they did do a good job of closing the season off and still then setting up the next season if it had been picked up.
  • Revolution - Not sure if I mentioned it sometime but I didn't watch the first season until last summer and then we didn't start this season until March.  I still have about 12 episodes to go this season and I'm trying to decide if I should watch them. I think the finale is this week and then someone will have to tell me if they resolve anything or if I would just be really frustrated with it. LOL
  • Once Upon a Time in Wonderland - This one was a no go for me strictly due to timing. I already record two shows at 8:00 om Thursday so I never recorded it and never got into watching it online.  I may try and catch it online sometime since I know it was made as a one season show and some of the characters are going to be on Once Upon a Time next season. 
  • The Crazy Ones - Another show that I am really sad to see go.  M and I liked this one and I actually liked Sarah Michelle Gellar playing a funny lady. She was the more straight character to Robin Williams funny man but she did a great job and I thought it was a good show.
  • Dracula - Oh how I wanted to watch you and I somehow never even recorded you even though I don't have any other shows on Friday.  Since it was cancelled I guess I didn't miss much but some of my friends did say they really liked this one.
  • Revenge - I did  I pulled the plug on Revenge. I had the season recorded and I watched the first couple but then I just had no desire to watch anymore. Since I have so many shows that I do enjoy to watch I decided to just pull the plug and say I don't watch this anymore. I know I may regret it later but for now it feels good.

So those are the shows that will not be on my chart come fall 2015 either due to me or due to the network. Do you have any shows you are really going to miss or that you just had to ditch this year?  Be on the look out for another post with the new shows I loved, the shows coming up for fall 2015 I'm looking forward too and possible a season finale post with my thoughts.  We'll see how much tv I can talk about ;)

Happy Tuesday Everyone!!!

Monday Morning Musings

Took a little blogging break last week and didn't update as much but I did miss you all and I'm hoping to get more done this week. :)

Weekend Update:  It was a busy and not so busy weekend.  Friday we went to Koka Booth Amphitheater to see Frozen outside.  And as luck would have it we were having a cool front go through so it wasn't hot at all and actually a little cool.  They had a huge turnout and estimate of about 5000 people came to see the movie. We packed a picnic and got there early to settle in.

Then on Saturday we had a yard sale in the morning. This was the beginnings of my sorting. It was pretty slow but I managed to sell some of the bigger things and the rest is going to an online consignment site so hopefully more will sell that way.

After I was done I got to take  nap and then M went to work.  Sunday we did lunch over at out my brother and sister in law and then the boys and I headed home. C was so so so tired from the activities all weekend he actually was asleep by 6:30 last night and slept through to this morning.  He is in much better spirits today.:)

Upcoming week:  Hmm not sure what this week will bring yet.  So far C and I went to the strawberry patch again and to the new Target.  Now we are home and since he i a goofball decided he wanted to take a bath at about 12:30 so that is what he did.  He doesn't love baths so if he is willing and we have the time I will let him take one everytime. :) It is also his last week of preschool so I only have 2 more mornings of quiet time before he is here all the time LOL so I will probably try and do a little shopping one of the mornings. N also has his first ever eye appointment. He failed his test at the pediatrician so we are taking him to our ophthalmologist to get checked out. M and I are both pretty blind without our contacts so I'm sure its only a matter of time.

Box News:  I don't think I'm expecting any boxes this week.  I have a Citrus Lane mystery box coming but I don't think it will make it this week. My Stampin' Up My Paper Pumpkin did come last week and I'm hoping to get some of those cards made this week too.

Business News:  I post all of the latest Disney News I get on my facebook page so make sure you like that for the latest info Right now the hottest news is still Free Dining for the fall and also tickets are available for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party and also Mickeys Very Merry Christmas Party.

Have a great week everyone!!!

Citrus Lane May 2014 Box Review 42month Boy

Here we go again time for this months Citrus Lane box.  I was a little surprised to see it today since originally the shipping said today and then it said Monday so I wasn't holding out hope.  However I was happy to see this here today.  I had looked at spoilers but I hadn't seen our exact age and there seems to be alot of variation this month so I was curious.

I still love a first glance when I can't really see what is in the box but I could tell it was pretty full. I love when they take the time to wrap it up and make everything look so perfect like they actually took the time with it instead of just tossing it all in the box.  I have C aged up a little bit so that we hopefully get toys that he can move into. So this month he got a box for a 42 month old. Citrus Lane is a monthly subscription box service that is geared for kids age 0-5 and is $29 a month however that price can go down when you buy a longer subscription.

Peeling away the tissue and I was excited. I saw some things that I was already happy to get.

And now onto this months goodies:

  • GoodByn Hero lunch box - This is a brand new launch from Goodbyn and Citrus Lane is the first to get it and share with their customers. That makes me very excited. :)  We love Goodbyn here and N takes one to school everyday for lunch and snack.  Lately he has been starving and wanting more and more food so he was happy and claimed this one already.  We will be packing it on Monday. 
  • Crocodile Creek Watch - This is too funny.  C has really been into watches lately and has been wearing Ns around. He was so excited to get this and put it right on and wore it the rest of the day. I'm sure we will be wearing this alot coming up.
  • Duo Tip Washable Markers form Faber-Castell - We've gotten other items from Faber-Castell but I don't think we have gotten the markers before.  The boys and I were just talking about how we need to do a art box purge so these will be set aside and placed in there once we clean out the old.
  • Fresh Feet Wipes for kids from Jasmine Seven - This had me laughing when I had seen spoilers for peoples boxes.  We will totally use these especially when we travel. We wear mostly crocs and rainbows in the summer so all of our feet get nasty and its not always easy to wash off just your feet but wipes like these always seem to make it easier to do.
  • Crispy Cheddar Snacks from Back to Nature- Snacks are always welcome around here and while we've never had this brand this is a kindof snack we like. Going in my park bag for next week.
Over all I really like our box now that I've dug into it. In the spoilers I saw some great outdoor toys that we would have loved but we will use everything that we got and my boys have already claimed some so that is the best and what it is all about.  

Since I get my Citrus Lane boxes as a gift from a friend I think we have one more box on our subscription. I can't wait to see what we get next month.  Did you get a box this month? What age did you get?  If you are interesting in subscribing or just checking them out you can click my Citrus Lane link 'Citrus Lane' and now through 5/31 you can use the coupon code "TAKE20OFF" to take $20 off your first box!!!! That would make your first Citrus Lane box $9 which is totally AWESOME!!!  You will be enrolling in the monthly subscription box but you can then cancel if you are not happy with it but it does make it a great deal if you are wanting to check them out.

Happy Boxing,

Ipsy May 2014 Bag Review

My Ipsy bag came yesterday and it was such a crazy day I got a chance to give it a quick look and had to set it aside.

I do love seeing this hot pink bag in my box. It just brightens up my day right away.

The theme this month was Beauty's Fresh Picks. Let me start by talking about the bag. I really do love getting the little bag each month. No idea what I am going to do with them all but they are fun and this one is awesome. Instead of the plasticy type bag we normally get this is a nice canvas feeling bag.  This one is going in my purse to hold some of my goodies. :)

  • Pacifica Mineral Eyeshadow Duo #1 in Celestial and Opal - These duos were made especially for Ipsy and I have liked all the other Pacifica products I have gotten so I plan to like this one too. However I have so many neutral shadows right now I'm not sure when I will get to this one. I will hold on to it for now but it could possible be a trade item later.
  • Pur-lisse pur-moist hydra balance moisturizer - I can always use a new moisturizer since I go through it so fast.This will be placed in the to use pile.
  • Sans Tan Anti-Aging Sunscreen - I've said this before but I have had melanoma twice so sunscreen is a set in my daily routine. This is an organic sunscreen and a brand I have never heard of so it has me excited. We've been in the 90s here lately so extra sunscreen is always good. This is going right in my bag in my purse. :)
  • Avene Thermal Spring Water - I have never used a water like this but I've been reading and lots of people are excited for this. The information says Its unique composition is proven to soothe inflammation, itching, redness, general sensitivity and post-medical and aesthetic procedure irritation as it softens, protects and purifies the skin. I'm up for giving it a try even if its just to give me a quick refresh on a hot day.
  • Hey Honey Take It Off! Exfoliating Honey Peel Mask - I'm going to tell you that I've never used a facial mask. I've gotten some different ones in boxes but I've never used them.  My skin gets pretty nasty in the summer with the pool, sunscreen and the heat etc so I plan to try a couple of these then. I will place this one in that pile.
Did you get an Ipsy bag this month?  While I love the bag itself the items to me are just ok.  I like when I get more makeup type items and there were alot of skincare items this month. I get that with summer coming but it still doesn't make for an exciting bag. LOL If you are interested in Ipsy it is a monthly subscription that costs $10 a month plus tax depending on the state and you will get 4-5 beauty items and a bag sent right to your house.  This really is one of the boxes I get that I really look forward to every month and you can't beat seeing the hot pink mailer in your mailbox.

Have a happy Ipsy day!!!

disclaimer: That is my referral link there and I will get points on Ipsy if you decide to join through me for add ons in a future bag.

My Paper Pumpkin February 2014 box

I'm back today for another update with one of my My Paper Pumpkin boxes.  This was the February 2014 box and I loved it as usual.

I wasn't sure back when I got it what I was going to use the bags for but I tend to hoard things like this so I new it would be a good reason.  This week I was able to come up with the first reason to use the bags - Teacher Appreciation. :)

I love seeing the boxes come in and setting it up to open in and seeing this. Why yes thank you I will take my escape now. :)

All the goodies for this month.

Since I was going to use my first couple for teacher appreciation I decided to use Thanks as my banner saying.

And the finished product. C and I actually dropped these off with his teachers yesterday and they loved them. Everyone thought they were so cute. And I still have more that I can use for another occasion.  I love that  My Paper Pumpkin give us so many supplies to make multiple projects each month.

If you are interested in checking My Paper Pumpkin out just click my LINKMy Paper Pumpkin is a monthly subscription box from Stampin' Up that will send you a project box each month with cards or another project that can be completed in about 30 minutes.  The cost of the box is $19.95. If you are not ready to sign up for a monthly box you can now purchase a set 1,3,6,9 or 12 month subscription. These will need to be placed through my Stampin' Up store  this will give you the prepaid options.

What do you think of these bags? They are such a good size and I'm thinking I might use some of the others for end of year teacher gifts for Ns teachers. :) Did you get this kit? Are you a fan of My Paper Pumpkin?  Oh and as I said in my last review starting with the June box new subscriptions will get the current months box and not get the welcome box as before. They will get a clear block inserted into whichever box they start with so they can use their photopolymer stamps.

Happy crafting!!!

My Paper Pumpkin March 2014 Box

I am so behind on posting all of my My Paper Pumpkin projects but I've been doing parts of them on and off and then this weekend I got with my girls and put some together.  So be on the look out this week while I share them with you.:)

I'm starting with the March 2014 box and a collection of cards. This was the first month that Stampin' Up had updated the boxes to use photopolymer stamps and upped the contents of other items.  I was very happy with the amount of included items.  Instead of in the past doing 4 cards we got enough to make 8 cards this month which is very exciting.

First look and I was excited.  Whenever I see glitter paper I get a little tickle in my belly and I can't wait to see how I'm going to use it.

There was so much in the box this month and things I had never used before which was fun.  I've never used the wooden accent words but they really pop on the page.

Here is the info card with their idea for the cards.  I actually liked this idea but I had to modify it some since I like to play around.  I had seem some ideas on Shelli Gardner's (she is the owner of Stampin' Up) blog where she modified the cards using only products in the kit so I got inspired and followed her plan to change some of mine up.


Last week was Teacher Appreciation at Ns school so I made a couple of the cards for his teachers.  He really liked the wood on his cards.

And here are the rest of the cards I made.  These will go in my finished card box so I can just grab them out and send them off.  I didn't show it but I loved that they sent gold envelope liners so when they open the card they get a pop of color.  That is also the gold I used for the stripe down the one card and the little banners on the banner cards.

If you are interested in checking My Paper Pumpkin out just click my LINKMy Paper Pumpkin is a monthly subscription box from Stampin' Up that will send you a project box each month with cards or another project that can be completed in about 30 minutes.  The cost of the box is $19.95. If you are not ready to sign up for a monthly box you can now purchase a set 1,3,6,9 or 12 month subscription. These will need to be placed through my Stampin' Up store  this will give you the prepaid options.

What do you think of these cards?  I'm really loving them and they are already getting put to great use. Did you get this kit? Are you a fan of My Paper Pumpkin?  Oh and before I forget starting with the June box new subscriptions will get the current months box and not get the welcome box as before. They will get a clear block inserted into whichever box they start with so they can use their photopolymer stamps.

Thursday Thoughts

 Linking up again for Thursday Thoughts.

  • My laptop forced an update and now the scroll feature on my touchpad doesn't work. :(  M looked at it and then googled and I guess its a known problem but no one has fixed it yet. I find this very unacceptable. I need to scroll when reading blogs and my box groups.
  • I went on a field trip with N today and it was so hot.  The kids did great but all the parents were about to die.  I mean really we set a record high today of over 90°F and we were outside at the museum.
  • I'm very glad that Free Dining was announced for WDW since it makes me busy and that keeps me from planning my own trip :)  When I get down time I tend to come up with all kinds of things that I NEED to do. LOL
  • Have I told you all that I'm just a little too excited to go scrapping with my friends on Saturday? I'm not sure how much I will get done but I can't wait to have some girlie chatty time.
  • We are having a yard sale next Saturday and I haven't really started putting stuff together.  I've been stashing stuff outside but it needs to be sorted and priced. That part is daunting but I do love the selling part and that it is cleaning out some stuff.

So do any of you have big weekend plans?  Anything for Mother's Day? M has to work that night so hoping to do a lunch somewhere or something but that is it.  Have a great night and I'll be back later for more fun and random thoughts.


Wantable Intimates May 2014 Box

Yea Yea Yea I love love love seeing my Wantable in my mail.  :) I get text messages when my account goes active and then again when they ship so I knew it was coming and as usual it took about 2 days to get to me.

I know I've said it before but I love the inside of these boxes. Not only do they say they are packed especially for me but they have a cute little goodie label and there is always a fun quote on the back.

Wantable doesn't just have an info card they have an info sheet. Since each box is packed separately this works well.  It also gives you the highlights of your survey that you fill out for them. I've said it before but Wantable has the most indepth survey and you really get a pretty customization in your box that way.I don't think I have changed my box in awhile. Since it is already so hot here in NC I won't be wearing hose or socks so those will be staying on my dislike list for awhile.  Wantable says you will never get anything you dislike and then you are more likely to get things you love then things you just like.

And now I know you have all been on the lookout for what goodies I got this month. :)

Don't you just love it?  I'm really loving this box which yes I know I say alot but really I've been very happy with all my intimate boxes.  Wantable sends you 4-5 premium essentials for $36 a month if you have a subscription or you can try it out for $40 for a one time box.

Now onto the details:

St. Eve Ruffle Tank in Miss Jade($22) 
I am in absolute love with this tank. It is such a pretty color and has such a flirty little ruffle.  It isn't too tight so that it has a little swing to it when you walk.  Love Love Love it.

HoneyDew Black/Silver Thong ($14)
Again these are so stinkin' cute.  I will be working these into my rotation immediately.

Honeydew Essential Bliss Cami in Cranberry Tart ($30)
Such a pretty color and cami. In the information it says that these run a little small so they sent a size up. I'm so glad they took that into consideration and then let me know so that when I looked at it I didn't immediately think they messed up.

Betsey Johnson Adjustable Thong ($12)
Uhm I have never had panties with adjustable anything so these have me very intrigued.  I do like the idea of it though so I have high hopes.  These are also very delicate and pretty looking so they will be fun to wear.

Oh my I just don't know how to say how much I love this box.  I will use and wear everything in it and it came to a value of $78 which is well over the $36 I paid.  However if I had not loved it I could easily return in to Wantable for a credit.  They are awesome like that.

Did you get a box this month? Are you as in love with it as I am?


disclaimer: That is my referral link up there and I will get wantable credit if you decide to try it out though my link.
