Unfortunately, our summer break has come to an end.  My kids started back to school the first week of August.  With that start, has come a bit of chaos as we all get back into the routine of earlier bedtimes and wake up times, homework, and studies.  Thankfully, my August Peaches and Petals box arrived and gave me a chance to relax and revel in some goodies.   Peaches and Petals is an awesome monthly subscription service that delivers beauty/lifestyle boxes each month right to your door. Subscriptions are only $19.99 a month with free shipping! The theme of the August box was “Do You, BooBoo!’” and all of the items were perfect for enjoying some “me” time.

Peaches and Petals August

These Rosie the Riveter Glasses ($14.99) are so neat!

The feature Rosie herself with the famous phrase

‘We Can Do It!” on one side with an explanation of where the famous image originated.  These fun glasses hold 16 oz and are dishwasher safe.

This five compartment salad bowl from Diamond Home ($14.99), is perfect for eating on the go!

It comes apart to allow you to pack everything you need for a delicious salad. I frequently take salads to work for lunch and this definitely beats taking my toppings in baggies and carting the whole bottle of dressing with me!  It even comes with a fork!

I do a lot of walking both for exercise and enjoyment.  These HEAD Performance socks  ($4) are perfect for my treadmill and park time.  They’re super soft, have breathable mesh as well as arch support, and they’re cute to boot.

I’m a big fan of dry shampoo.  It’s great for those times when I want to make a hairstyle last one more day or when I’m in a hurry to get out the door.

This dry shampoo from Batiste in blush ($6.55) smells really good and worked great!

Last but definitely not least, I received a pack of UNIBIS Cashew Cookies ($1.49).

They were light and buttery and super yummy!

The August box was a great one.  I was especially excited about the salad bowl and the socks (I love me some nice cozy socks!).  The total value of this month’s box was $42.02 so it was a great deal.  If you’d like to sign up for a Peaches and Petals subscription, use this link and use the code PEACH10% to save 10% on your first box.

We are fully into summer here at my house and I’m enjoying the laid back days and free time with my kids.  Schedules have gone out the door and relaxation and fun have become our themes.  Bring on backyard campouts, smores, swimming, impromptu trips to the park and late bedtimes!  I’ve also been able to enjoy a little more “me” time thanks to less busy days.  So I was especially excited to see what was in my June Peaches and Petals box.  Peaches and Petals is an awesome monthly subscription service that delivers beauty/lifestyle boxes each month right to your door. Subscriptions are only $19.99 a month with free shipping! The theme of the June box was “Summer Lovin’” and all of the items were perfect for ennoying this fun time.

Peaches and Petals June

The sequin pillow ($9.49), of course, immediately caught my eye.

This pillow is super cool!  It features flippable sequins that allow you to “draw” on it.

My daughter absolutely loved it and I had fun with it myself!  I’m thinking about getting a few to save for birthday parties my kids get invited to.

This trio from Beauty Junky ($4.99) is a great way to pamper myself a little.

It features a one time use pack of Cucumber Hand Cream, Paw Paw & Pomegranate Face Mask, and Almond Hair Mask.  The only negative is that the hair mask packet does not contain nearly enough to cover my super long hair.  There’s enough for my ends though.

I also received this Hard Candy Fox in a Box Powder Compact ($8.75), which features two blendable shades.

I was a little worried because the pink shade is really bright.  But combined with the brown shade, it worked.

The next two items are perfect for all the time we’ve been spending outside.

I’m a stickler for sunscreen and we go through it pretty quickly.  This Clear Zinc Sport Stick by Babo Botanicals ($8.64) is hypoallergenic and lightweight, dairy, soy and gluten free.  It’s perfect for sensitive skin and is fragrance free.  It went on smoothly and worked great on our recent trip to the playground.

My eyes are super sensitive to the sun so I was excited to find these Foster Grant sunglasses ($14.99) in the June box.

They offer 100% UVA and UVB protection and fit great.

I truly love everything in this month’s box and will use it all.  In fact, it’s probably one of my favorites, so far.  The total value of the items I received is $46.86 so definitely a good deal.  If you’d like to sign up, just visit PeachesandPetals.com and be sure to use one of the codes below!

Or, you can use the following code for a free hammock!  But hurry!  It’s only good through July 15th and cannot be combined wit any other offer.  This code MUST be added during checkout.

Peaches and Petals is a monthly subscription service that delivers beauty/lifestyle boxes each month right to your door. Subscriptions are only $19.99 a month with free shipping! The theme of the May box was “Vacation All I Ever Wanted”.

It was filled with items perfect for summer relaxation.

This pretty She Believed She Could So She Did magnetic board ($18) from Umbra is 15″x15 1/2″ and comes with six round magnets. It would be great for posting your goals or pictures of summer adventures.

This Spungee Neck Support Travel Pillow ($11.45) is super soft and conforms to your neck.  I envision using it while lounging by the pool or during roadtrips.  It’s very lightweight and the fabric is nice and soft.

I am a candle fanatic so I was excited to find this Sara Beth wooden wick’d candle in Seaside ($14), in the May box.  Not only does it smell amazing, it also features a wick that crackels when lit.  It’s so soothing and makes me think of a crackling campfire.

I also received 2 packs of gud Natural Cleansing Wipes from Burt’s Bees ($4.99 each).  The Pearanormal Activity, pear and aca berry smelled really good but the Red Ruby Groovy, grapefruit and thyme smelled amazing!  They provide a quick and easy way to freshen up after a workout or time outdoors.

Lastly, we have this hope-to-go Travel kit from Soapbox ($7.99).  This kit includes four of Soapbox’s best selling restorative Argan products, including shampoo, conditioner, body wash and lotion.  It’s perfect for those weekend getaways but the best part of this kit is that it gives back.  For every travel kit purchased, Soapboa donates a month of clean water to a community in need.  How awesome is that?!

I was really happy with everything in the May box.  I’m especially excited about the pillow and the candle.  The total value of the box was approximately $61.42 so it was a great deal considering a subscription is $20 a month.  If you’d like to sign up, just visit PeachesandPetals.com and use the coupon code PEACH10% to save 10% off your first order.

Peaches and Petals is a monthly subscription service that delivers beauty/lifestyle boxes each month right to your door.  Subscriptions are only $19.99 a month with free shipping!  The theme of the March box was “Hello Spring!”

As spring unfolds here in Tennessee, we have been enjoying warmer temperatures and blooming flowers.  The beautiful days have definitely gotten  me in the mood to be outside.  I forgo the treadmill for walks around the neighborhood or at the park.  This Carry-All Belt from Sprigs is perfect for these outings!

img_20170401_153350

It’s the modern and much more attractive version of the fanny packs of my youth (I know I’m dating myself haha!).  It features 3 strong, stretchy nylon pouches that are big enough to hold keys, phones, ipods, a camera, and more.  The middle pocket will even hold a 16oz water bottle!  It worked wonderfully this past weekend when I walked back and forth between the different soccer fields that several of my kids were playing on.

With the nice weather and summer vacation only 7 weeks away, we have already started planning fun adventures and travels.

img_20170401_153532

This Journey Journam from Lifebok is super neat!  It features 36, cardstock pages that are designed to easily help you document your travels.

img_20170401_153636 img_20170401_153658 img_20170401_153716

It has plenty of places for photos as well as handwritten notes.  It also has 4 pockets (2 in the front and 2 in the back) to place keepsakes like ticket stubs, menus, or postcards.  My kids are really excited about filling this up with memories!

I love finding beauty items in my monthly Peaches and Petals boxes.  This month I received a bottle of Yes to Cucumbers gentle milk cleanser.

img_20170401_153447

It contains soothing cucumber, soy protein and green tea for sensitive skin and is cruelty free.  It has a light fresh scent and left my skin feeling clean and soft.

I also received a bottle of  hello mint breath spray.

img_20170401_153804

The spray has a light spearmint flavor.  It honestly wasn’t as tasty as a piece of gum but it did leave my breath cool and minty.

Finally, I received this cute elephant by Stephanie Corfee Artworks.

img_20170401_153920  It’s made of cold-cast resin and is approximately 4″ tall.  I have a friend who collects elephants so this will make the perfect “just because” gift for her.

Here’s the value breakdown (all prices taken from Amazon):

  • Journey Journal- $16.99
  • Carry-All Belt- $28.60
  • Cleanser- $5.87

I have done a lot of my Christmas shopping online this year so we frequently find packages on the porch.  Thankfully, one of those packages was my December Peaches & Petals box.  In the midst of the craziness, it was fun to stop and see what goodies I received this month!

The theme for this month is “Jingle and Mingle”.

This Keep Calm and Color On daily calendar is a fun way to keep track of the date.  It will make a great gift for my friend that loves to doodle and color.

These pretty earrings were my “surprise item” this month.  They’re really cute and will add some sparkle to a solid black sweater.

20161214_134525 20161214_134619

I love trying new lip colors so I was excited about this Manna Kadar Liplocked Priming Gloss Stain.  The color is “Lucky” which is a nice neutral mauve. It goes on smoothly and feels good on my lips.

I also received this fun wine bottle ugly Christmas sweater and hat topper.  It would be really cute on a bottle of wine you are gifting to someone.

I always have candles going at home and really want my house to smell good,  Our two teen boys’ bedroom is in the basement so it definitely needs help!  This wax free fragrance warmer from Westinghouse is perfect for the teen stinkiness. The warmer came with a vanilla fragrance disc and I also received two sun-dried linen refills.  I plugged the warmer in and started smelling it almost immediately.  It filled the whole room with a nice vanilla scent.

Here’s the breakdown:

Calendar- $7.31

Earrings- $6

Lip Stain- $24

Wine Bottle Sweater- $6

Warmer- $14.99

2 Warmer refills- $8

Total: $66.30
