Little Life Box – October 2017

Octobers box has been in for a little bit now (besides I get it later than everyone else, got to love living up north). I paid $26.15 CAD for Octobers box and still a price I have been more than happy to pay. Lets see if this box was worth it though.

So, I love the fall colours this box had. Plus, the cards are always so pretty. Not as many big items this month but there are a lot of items so Yay!

FYI: the pictures are kind of horrible I could not find a spot where I was not getting a shadow.

Who says save the best for last. We are going to do them first! On the left there is ‘Green Tea Primer’ by Evio Beauty. Cruelty Free stamp (PETA), Paraben free, and vegan. Excited about the vegan aspect and of course that they say they are cruelty free. I will not be opening this until I finish with my current primer though. Oh and it is made in Canada!

On the right we have a lavender mud bath mix by Black Oxygen. Pretty sure I can use this right now. I wish I had done this earlier as I had a bath the other night.

Two whey protein mixes. One in vanilla and one in strawberry, sweetened with stevia. Not thrilled but always happy to be able to try things out.

I have three sample packs of the ‘Organic’ Jelly Bellys. Have not tried them yet but I have mixed feeling about organic label. I mean they are still jellybeans and not healthy for you. This will not make me feel less guilty about eat them. On the right is strawberries and cream flavoured fruit and nut nibbles by Nakd. I want to say I have tried the brand before but no promises there. I am excited about these ones as the ingredients list is very small. Dates, cashews, raisins, rice flour, and natural flavouring. That is it!

Toothpaste samples by Auromere. These are being put in the bin of travel products. We are currently using a vegan, Canadian toothpaste. Which, I happen to love and I will have to check with Mister on how he feels about it.

Always enjoy this brand and while I cannot use these right now I am hanging on to them. They do not expire till 2019, lets just hope I remember to update when I am able to use them.

These I do not think I am comfortable using. They sound kind of interesting though. Pink Ice Energy Crystals. Raspberry and Mint flavoured. Suppose to be a dietary supplement. I would suggest doing some reading on these if you are interested in them. I am really on the fence about how I feel.

I have had this brand and the fact that they have chocolate cookies are a little exciting. Just not healthy for you. Awesome to be able to try this junk food with out actually having to buy more than you should!

On the left we have Handfuel marcona almonds with sea salt and freshly squeezed lemon. Mister seen these and told me I should be eating them right at this moment ha-ha. I keep stuff like this at the office but these sound much more refreshing or at least lighter. On the right are Laiki black rice crackers. They are vegan and kosher with a very limited ingredients list. Not holding my breath that I will like them but maybe I will be pleasantly surprised.

Besides a couple items I would say this box is worth what I paid. Cannot wait to see what November brings!

Little Life Box – September 2017

Sorry I am not going to big intro into this box because I am a month late. I am going straight into what the box contains. No fluff here!

Now I did not keep any of the cards or such but I think I can remember what everything was. As you can see there were quite a few large items in Septembers box.

First up we have on the left, Chocolate Coconut Probiotic Smoothie Mix, which I have not tried yet but I have chocolate coconut milk in the pantry. I think it will work great and easier than remembering to take the pills. On the right we have a spice mix for Masala Fish. This is by Jaswant’s Kitchen. We are not huge fish eaters but check out the website. It looks like quick tasty meals that could be made.

These two I cannot try but if I could have I would have loved too. There is the cinnamon supplement (which expires before I could use it) and we do not know any one who would use them. They are going to the pharmacy to be properly disposed of. The second is a feminine ‘Hair, Skin, and Nails’ supplement. Again I cannot use it but I did give this one to my mother for her to try out if she wanted too.

I have seen Skinny Pop Popcorn before but I have not tried it. We usually just make popcorn at home but I will try it at some point. Besides it is nice to be able just have something I can throw in my purse for the day. The red bar is quinoa and cranberry flavoured by Honey Bar. I love these, I had actually bought three different flavours before this box came in. Huge thumbs up from me for this product. The green bar is Freeyumm honey apple oat bar. Which, I completely forgot about but will toss in my bag tonight so I can try it ASAP. They say their products are allergen friendly which is huge for some individuals and families.

Bounce Bites, coconut almond. I am not a fan of coconut so I have to be honest I am avoiding these a little bit.

Starting at the top left, we have 7th Heaven mud mask. I have used this brand before and cannot vouch for how well they work but I do not break out or react to them. No one has Eczema so not sure if the cream samples will every get a chance to be use. The first vial is a body oil in Lavender. Psyched for this one and I did not see an expiry date so I will be using this the minute I am able to. The vial on the left in some energy gel shot. I cannot find this in the kitchen so I think it was accidently thrown out.

I know I had meant to have this post up last weekend but I am having issues with my personal computer and I finally just said screw it. I have also left Octobers box intact that way I can do a better review of the box and how I really feel about it.

What?! Another Update

As I start typing this post out I am thinking about the million other things I still need to do. Things that are very important to get done because soon I will either not be able to do them or I just will not have the interest to do it.

I have a plan though. Yes, I know, I have plans all the time but I promise this time is different. The reason it is different is there is a part of our life that has not really been made public yet. I will be doing a post about that soon here. It makes it easier just to go about blogging instead of beating around the bush.

I have only fallen behind on one review post. After I have this posted I will just throw up the Septembers Little Life Box. I know we are over that and I did just get in Octobers. It was still a good box none the less.

Shortly after that I will be posting about the quarterly update. Which catches me up on the ‘currently’ regular posts. Maybe than I will get around to everything else I have been putting off…
