first look

I was literally so excited to open this box, I forgot to take a picture of the front of it! The box with the items is a hard, reusable box (it’s quite nice) and it gets shipped inside a brown mailer box for protection.

fringe scarf

Fringe Scarf -This was the featured item of the month and it’s gorgeous! The picture does not do it justice. It’s soft, thick, and perfect for fall/winter. The color I got is a deep red (it’s showing up way more orange in this photo than it is in real life), and I love it! I was hoping for either red or green, and I lucked out.


travel hair care

Pantene Pro-V– Travel Shampoo and Conditioner

Who can’t use some travel hair care during the holiday season? I know I will definitely use this!



Donut Candle – This is adorable. It’s so realistic looking! The only downside is that it doesn’t seem to have a scent to me. I definitely prefer my candles scented. I might pass this one along to someone as a small gift in the future.


tea infuser

Tea Infuser– This squirrel tea infuser sits on your mug while his tail infuses your loose leaf tea! How cute. Perfect for a fall box, too.


thank you cards

Thank You Cards– These are from Carlton Cards. We got an entire set in our box with light blue envelopes included. I love this idea for the holiday season. Simple and functional.


infinity bracelet

Infinity Bracelet– This is a delicate gold bracelet with the infinity logo. It’s sizeable to any size wrist, too. I highly doubt this has any real gold in it, but it’s cute and would be nice with a sweater or a holiday outfit this season. It looks nice on.


Rachel Ray subscription

Rachel Ray Every Day Subscription– The bonus this month was a subscription to Rachel Ray’s magazine for 2 years. I don’t love magazines, but it might be worth browsing through since it’s free. I thought you’d have to do something to redeem the offer, but it appears that you’ll just start receiving the magazine in your mailbox.

I was really happy with this month’s box. The fringe scarf alone was worth the box for me. The other items were mere bonuses, and I liked all of them. I’m so excited about the robe for next month!

Surprise My Pet box


first look

This month’s box had a Happy Thanksgiving theme! Watch me and the boys unbox HERE!



Pet Lou – Lobster rope/plush toy

SPOT– ball and rope toy



Pet Chef– No Guilt Treats (made with turkey, ginger pumpkin, and kale); 2 ounces each bag



Smokehouse Pet Products– Bacon Twist

We also got a dog hat! I lost the picture I had of it on its own. My dogs’ ears are a bit too big for it (plus they hated it and tried to get it off), but how adorable is this! I love that Surprise My Pet has been sending seasonal accessory/clothing items. I would never buy this stuff for my dogs, but it is so cute. I actually died laughing when I put this on both of them.

I liked all of the items in this month’s box! As always, I’m impressed. If you have a dog, you should definitely consider this box!

This box also works great for adults! You can pay for this subscription with PayPal (which I love) so you can control how long you stay subscribed. No credit card is required. You get 30 individual sized snacks each month, including bars, cookies, chips, and fruit pouches.

I have to mention that I decided to cancel my subscription to this box. I’ve enjoyed the box, but there were so many repeats. It was no longer worth the cost to me since I wasn’t getting that much variety. I did love the snacks, though, and still recommend this box to you!

chips and popcorn

Dirty Original Recipe– Sweet Potato Chips (1.5 ounces)

479 Degrees– Popcorn in Pumpkin Pecan Praline (5 ounces!)

This popcorn is to die for good. I pretty much ate the entire 5 ounce bag in one sitting. Oops.


graham sticks and sesame sticks

Back to Nature – Honey Graham Sticks

Bella Rustico– Tocchetti Sesame Sticks (imported from Italy)

Both of these snacks were delicious. I already ate them both and loved them.


David’s Tea

David’s Tea – Sampler with 2 tea packets and a voucher for a free cup of tea

David’s Tea is located in Chicago (and I’m not sure where else). I’ve tried their tea before, and it’s decent. I know it gets rave reviews by people who live in Chicago. I’m excited to try the herbal sample we got. I don’t drink caffeinated tea.


Sheila G’s– Brownie Brittle in Salted Caramel

Snappers– Chocolate Pretzel Snacks

Both of these are DELICIOUS. We also got a coupon for a FREE bag of Snappers. Gosh I hope my store carries them, because they are a pretzel/chocolate delight.


18 Rabbbits Jr. – Granola Bar in Caramel Apple

I’ve had this brand before and love it. I am happy to try this new to me flavor! And it’s very appropriate for fall.

Biscoff – Cookies

These are delicious. There’s only one cookie in each packet, which is kind of a tease, so I ate both at once (and still wanted more).


Dilletante – Raspberry Truffles

Monbana– Dark and Milk Chocolates

Maui Whites – Cane Sugar

LWF usually sends a bunch of sweet treats during the holidays and I love that. I like that these are small, single portions so that I can have 1 or 2 at a time (and not an entire bag, though I wouldn’t complain if they sent me a whole bag of truffles).



We got a lot of great coupons this time around! I’m hoping my local store carries some of these items so that I can take advantage of the discounts.

stuffed turkey toy

Griggles – Stuffed Turkey Toy – $14.99

This toy is pretty big and adorable. It is supposed to have a squeaker in it, but I couldn’t find it. I’m sure my dogs will be able to scope it out!


Mirage Pet Products– Holiday Bow Tie – $10.99

This is such a cute idea! I like that we didn’t get another bandana in the box this month.

Weruva– Food Topper in Pumpkin Patch Up! – $3.99


Mandela in his bow tie!

November Great Kids Snack Box

November Great Kids Snack Box

I was pretty happy with this box. Great Kids Snacks tends to send a lot of repeats (I’ve received more than half of these items before), but I’m OK with that since it’s usually items I like. I do wish they’d stop sending seaweed, because I don’t know too many people (and especially kids) who like it. I also don’t like the Dole oranges, because they are made in China (just a risk I’m not willing to take). I do love all the bars in this box, though, especially the 18 Rabbits Jr. and the Detour bar. I’m excited to try the new Outlaw bars that I’ve never seen before.
