Books. That word alone makes me deliriously happy when I hear it. For as long as I can remember, I have been a literature addict. I love to read and collect pretty much any book I can get my greedy booknerd hands on! Books make you shut out conventional ideas of the real world and fall headlong into exciting and impossible worlds filled with magic, adventure, love, humor, ect. The possibilities are endless. While I honestly do read pretty much ever genre, my favorites tend to be from the YA category. Naturally, I love finding book subscription boxes that cater to a YA enthusiast like myself. This month i finally had the opportunity to try my most lusted after book sub - OwlCrate!

Is it summer yet? Seriously... It needs to hurry up. I think every parent,kid, and teacher is ready for a break from the monotony of the school routine. Everyone is on edge, tired and counting the days till summer vacation arrives. I know I'm ready! Until then, though, I find solace in my subscription boxes. Today's vacation in a box? The April My Texas Market!

I was meandering through the beauty aisles of my local Walmart a few days ago and it struck me how far mass market cosmetics have come In the last few years. While there are quite s few lines I loved as a teenager that have now folded, most are still thriving and have upped the quality of their products to rival many of the high-end lines I once lusted after. It's a fabulous thing to have quality and affordable products so readily available and the Walmart Beauty Box is a testament to that.

Ugh, These past couple have weeks have just been so hectic! Between baseball games, being sick, doctors appointments, and other random things, my plate has been utterly full. At least a couple of those have started to fall off the list so I finally have some time to get to writing and reviewing! Let's start with the April 2016 Birchbox!

If you are a regular reader of DDG, by now you know how deeply my love for literature runs. Writing lets me express myself but reading lets us escape. I honestly don't recall a time when I didn't love to read. It's a trait I inherited from my mother, who always read to me as a child and who could never deny me when I wanted a new book. The written word is so magical and special to me so when the book subscription box boom began, I was ecstatic. One by one, I'm trying them all and today it's time to check out Bookcase.Club!

You know when you have some crazy stressful situation weighing on you and it's all you think about all day long?

I'm feeling the itch to revamp my closet again. I keep trying to pull the bulky sweaters and winter coats away to replace them with bright and breezy spring/summer clothes but the moment I start, the temperature plummets yet again. At this rate, it will be June by the time I can safely switch things out. At least this isn't a problem when it comes to jewelry because my April Wantable box is here!

The dangers of playing sports have hit. Today's baseball practice resulted in a solid ball to my son's mouth and a tooth flying out immediately after. He took it like a champ though, and went right back to practicing. While he shakes it off, I stress. I'm an overprotective mom, what can I say? Writing my reviews always helps me De-Stress though so here I am with the March Serendipity by Little Lace Box.

Ok. The book obsession has officially become ridiculous. Seriously people, at this point I should open a freaking library. My TBR pile isn't just a pile now, it's a mountain. I can't help it! Reading has always been my favorite pastime and i don't just enjoy reading them, but looking at and displaying them as well. Now let's add one more to the shelves with the March Muse Monthly box!

Whew! First little league game down, and only the entire season to go! Pre season tournaments have kicked off and my little guys team came out swinging! I love baseball and watching him play but boy does it make life hectic! Now that we are so busy, it's nice to come home and relax and luckily the items in my Influenster Glam VoxBox are perfect for treating myself to some post game pampering.
