I just recently received my first SeasonsBox. I have never been so excited about any of my boxes as this one. I knew in advance what was in it which is why I was extra excited! They post on their website and facebook what is in each monthly box so you can decide if you'd like to order. I actually took advantage of the deal they had and treated myself to a 12 month membership. Based on this first box and the sneak peek at Febuary's box which is called "Love Yourself" I think this may be my favorite subscription!
I almost didn't want to unwrap my box. The bow was so pretty!

My January box.
Inside January's box was a 100% cotton scarf from Kitira Boutique. They are hand-woven by members of the hill tribes of Northern Thailand. It is so soft! Also included was a cinnamon cranberry candle from Vance Kitira. It smells delicious!  The Peppermint Whipped Shea from Whispering Willow feels just so good on my hands. I love the scent also. There was a Perfumessence “Breathe” Shower Bath Bomb that smells so good. I'm saving it to use later on when I know I'll be getting sick as usual come Feb. or March. Tonight I used the Thai Herbal Steam Bath Tea. I had a long day of helping my mom move and thought a good soak in the tub would feel nice. This was so relaxing. It smelled good and just made me feel very soothed. I was so very happy to see there is 2 bags so I can use the other one when I need a little me time soak! I absolutely loved this box!
SeasonsBox has many subscription options or you can just buy 1 box if you like. They currently have a promo until Jan 31st for the 12 month subscription for only $250 which is what I signed up for. It's normally $349. I signed up late on a Saturday night and Fedex delivered my box on Thursday. I was so impressed! The company is located in Canada so be sure that your credit card can be used out of the country.
 Just for knowing me, SeasonsBox will include an additional high quality seasonal must-have product with your first box for FREE! Here's a link if you'd like to check SeaonsBox out yourself!

One of the monthly subscriptions I subscribe to is KalorieBox. Each box contains low calorie, healthy food. And for every box delivered they donate a meal to a hungry child in need. They have 3 plan options: monthly, 3 months, and 6 months. They ship boxes on the 15th of every month and shipping is included in the plans. I am currently on the 6 month plan.

This was my December box!
I have enjoyed everything so far in all of my boxes. I have found so many new products this way! I just received my January box which was my 3rd month. It included a can of Zevia, a bag of much-ado-about-mango Peeled Snacks (delicious!),  a FiberOne Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownie, and a box of Fiber Gourmet Cheese Thinables.  I love that each month is a surprise. They also include a little card telling about each of the products. This box is one you don't have to feel guilty about! :o) 
You can find out more about KalorieBox on their pages on facebook, twitter, or their website.

Dasani Drops

Dasani recently came out with their new Dasani Drops. I was lucky enough to get a box with their 4 flavors, a bottle of Dasani, and the cutest pen from them. They were giving these out via twitter.

They offer Strawberry Kiwi, Pink Lemonade, Pineapple Coconut, and Mixed Berry. I love the variety and they all tasted good. The Pineapple Coconut is really nice and might be my favorite. Well at least for this week. :o) My boys' favorites are the Mixed Berry and Strawberry Kiwi. We really like that you can adjust it to your own taste. Some like a bit more and some a bit less. I do tend to get bored with just plain water so it's nice to be able to flavor it up a bit.
Be sure to look for them at the store if you need to add a little fun to your water! You can find out more on their facebook and twitter pages.
*I did receive these for free courtesy of Dasani from a twitter promo they did. Opinions are my own.

Decorating the Snow

One of our boys' favorite things to do in winter is decorate the snow. I just buy plastic spray bottles from the travel section at Target. They are just over $1 each. I let them each pick out their color of bottle. Then you just fill them with water, add a few drops of food coloring, and they head outside to be snow artists!

I love that this is such a fun and cheap activity for them. They also get a clean canvas whenever it snows again. Although, we've only had a few snowfalls this season. If it is really cold and they are out there for too long the tube tends to freeze up so we just run a bit of hot water through it for the next fill. So much fun!
