GIVEAWAY: Win an At-Home Date Night Box from DateBox Club!

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a giveaway, so it’s time for another one! 

DateBox Club has offered to give away one of their September date night boxes to one of my readers…and that reader might just be YOU. 🙂 

Though I think I’ve only written up 1 “official” review (hmm…that probably needs to change soon), KP and I have actually done a few of the DateBox Club boxes and really enjoy them. If you’re not familiar with DateBox Club, you can: Read more…

Crated With Love Date Night Box Review: I Love the 80s! (Apr. ’17)

Hey – I might be about to go into labor (fingers crossed for any day now! …though I’m realistically not due for another week or two, but still…I can hope…), but KP and I still find time for at-home date nights. Crated With Love again to the rescue! And let’s be honest, I highly doubt we’ll be getting out anytime soon after the birth for an out-of-the-house date night. So really – Crated With Love to the rescue! 🙂

April’s Crated With Love box theme was “I Love the 80s!” Read more…

Are the Ultimate Bundles Legit? Scam? Amazing deal? Or marketing ploy?

So a blogger you follow is raving about this “Ultimate Bundle” thing. But you’re skeptical (and as you should be! Good for you, using discernment before jumping on bandwagons!) and you searched “ultimate homemaking/ healthy living/ essential oil/ photography/ whatever bundle reviews” or perhaps just “ultimate bundles review” and ended up here.

If so, welcome! – you’ve landed at the right place. Before becoming a blogger myself, I too saw these bundles and wondered what they were all about. I’m here to give you my honest-to-goodness lowdown on these bundles. The good, the bad, and the ugly.  Read more…

When Rocksbox Goes Bad: What Happens If You Break a Piece and/or Get a Rocksbox You Hate

3/25/17 note: I originally wrote the below post back about “When Rocksbox Goes Bad” in Oct. ’16, but never added pictures and it just sat in my drafts folder (along with sadly many other posts abandoned for one reason or another). I’m going through my drafts folder now, trying to throw some of them out into the light of day to see what comes from them. Enjoy. But sorry I’m just now posting too. Read more…

Crated With Love Review: My Kaizen Crush (Mar. ’17), aka our date night fight

KP and I have been doing the Crated With Love date night subscription boxes for the past several months. I’ve been reviewing them on the blog to help people get an idea about what one of these at-home date night box services are like.

So this past Friday night -after a long week- KP and I sat down to have our date night. Can I be honest? Both of us were exhausted, and probably would’ve preferred to veg out in front of the tv instead. But we’ve been busy and haven’t even had many nights to spend together lately, so out of commitment and obligation, we forced ourselves to set up the date box anyway.

And let’s just say our date night did not turn out as planned.  Read more…
