September 2017 Uppercase Box Review



You know, replacing cedar siding on my house is actually more difficult than I thought it would be... more expensive too. Fortunately we finally have all the new panels on and now that it's beginning to cool off a bit, we can finish up the last bit of painting we have left. It's still going to be a whole lot of tedious work and super time consuming but the end is in sight! What else is in sight right now? The September Uppercase Box Review!

September 2017 ShelfLove Crate Review & Coupon



You know how sometimes you can watch a movie and it's so amazing that you just have to buy the book it was based on? Yeah, that was me when I watched Age of Adaline a few months ago. I mean, it's one of those movies that has a tone to it that it screams 'book to movie adaptation'. So I google it, ready to find this book, only to learn it is an original screenplay. Not a book, never a book. It seems impossible. Truly a rarity and while I'm sad that I can't read more, it actually makes me love the movie even more. If you've seen the movie, you'll understand my point here and if you haven't seen it, ho watch it now... well, maybe not right this second, but definitely watch it when we get done talking about the September Shelflove Crate!

September 2017 Terra Bella Box Review & Coupon


This rather unfortunate medical condition I have is starting to become annoying again. I guess, the time has finally come to go see a cardiologist and figure this thing out. I hate passing out, but it's something I've grown accustomed to over the years so I haven't been motivated to see a doctor. That changes when your kid finds you passed out on the bathroom floor though. It's scary for him, like it was scary for me to see my mom like that during an episode. So off to the doctor I go to finally get an official diagnosis and see what can be done about this thing. In the meantime though, let's focus on positive things... like the pampering goodies in this month's Terra Bella Box!

September 2017 Owlcrate Review & coupon


Do any of you have a guilty pleasure genre of books? Come on, you know you do. Mine happens to be a very specific category - Time Travel Romance. Yes, I know it sounds cheesy but if you've ever picked up any of the books from the Outlander book series, you know how intense and wonderful they can be. I lay all blame for this genre obsession squarely at the feet of Diana Gabaldon. My other favorite genre happens to be anything in the fantasy category so I was extremely excited about the September OwlCrate!

September 2017 Postmark'd Studio PostBox Review & Coupon



I think I have nearly ruined at least 3 outfits during this home renovation process. I'm not generally a messy painter but I've been so eager to finish this tedious process that I have been picking up a paintbrush any chance I get. Speedy as my work may be, a quick hand makes paint splatter. My hair, my pants, shirts and boots.... it's everywhere. And don't even get me started on all the mosquito bites I now display. And while my ankles are itching and my hands are covered in paint that won't wash off, it's time to get writing and share the September Postmark'd Studio PostBox with you all!

September 2017 American Cocktail Club Review & Coupon



It's funny, despite the fact that both of my brothers worked at  a bar or two, I know pretty much nothing about nothing about making cocktails. Granted, this could be because of the fact that they are 10 and 8 years older than me, but I still wish I'd picked up a think or two from them over the years. Lucky for me though, I've stumbled upon a subscription service that should help my mixology skills along - American Cocktail Club!

July 2017 BookLoot Review



Fall- where are you? You're supposed to be here but I see you nowhere. Here in the South, it feel like the dead of Summer. It's hot...hotter than it has been in months and it's really putting a damper on how long I can work outside. I have a tendency to pass out when I get too hot (there was a rather unfortunate incident at a Blink-182 concert last summer that involved me coming to while dangling over my husbands shoulder) so right now, I can only manage about an hour before I have to take a breather. But this respite does offer me time to write so here we are with the July BookLoot review!

September 2017 The Pampered Period Box Review


Oh my,how my arms hurt. My arms, my back, my poor, poor dry blistered hands.... everything hurts. I love painting. 'Why pay someone to do it when I can do it myself?", I always say . Only I forgot how much trouble it is to paint an entire house made from cedar wood. Next time, I'm renting a paint sprayer! Since we are nearly finished with half of the house, I figure it's time to take a breather, chill out, and open up a box or two. First up - The Pampered Period Box.

September 2017 Degustabox Review & Coupon



I'm seriously finding the price of school lunches today to be totally ridiculous. I know I'm going to sound like an old person here, but when I was a kid we paid a whole 50 cents. It's now &2.75. No, that's not a lot of money but lord does it start adding up fast! It's sometimes cheaper to just pack a lunch myself. Maybe the September Degustabox will have some items I can throw in my sons lunchbox!

August 2017 Lip Monthly Review & Coupon


I've been so busy lately with revamping my house and with football season, that I've had very little time to do much else. I sat down the other night and while watching the premiere of Outlander (go. Watch it. Now.) I got curious about my own ancestry, it's amazing how much you can find on the internet these days. Passenger manifests from when my great grandparents arrived from Italy. Arrival records from my 10th great grandfather that came here in 1698. It's freaking crazy! Does this have anything to do with this review? No, but I thought it was cool and wanted to share. Now, onto the August Lip Monthly!
