popsugar must have may 2013 box

May 21, 2013

My latest guilty pleasure is monthly subscription boxes. This is not a new thing, but I’ve recently become fascinated with them. Right now I’m signed up for two of them, and the first one I chose is PopSugar’s Must Have box¬†(referral link there). It’s $35 a month – but use code REFER5 to get $5 off your first month – and you get all sorts of products from fashion, beauty, food, entertainment, home, etc. I researched a lot of subscription services before choosing this one, and it seemed like you get the most for your money with it and the variety of products is exciting. I have to say that even if the contents of the box were a dud,…

And also, because isn’t Snapsac! such a fun thing to say? (Exclamation point added by me, because I think it’s appropriate.) So anyway, SnapSac makes reusable bags that are perfect to stock up on for the grocery store, weekend outings, or really anything. Here is the one they sent me: It’s a super tote, and it IS super. Excuse my awkward posing. Right after I got it I put it to the test and I used it all during my brother’s wedding day. I had so many errands to…

Product Review: Avalon Vitamin C Cleansing Gel

August 31, 2010

I go on a lot of quests when it comes to finding the perfect product, and I can really only focus on one thing at a time. My first order of business is finding the perfect face wash. Here are my criteria: All-natural Gentle enough to use to remove eye makeup Not crazy expensive Smells good Doesn’t make me break out Good packaging (you’ll see why this is important) I want to find the cheapest product I can find that meets all my criteria, so I’m starting out looking at stores like Target, where I picked up this cleansing gel made by Avalon Organics. At first I thought I had achieved my goal on the first try. This product is…
