Ocotober Citrus Lane Box Review

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

I'm a sucker for monthly subscriptions that send a box in the mail.  I'm also a sucker for my baby so when I came across the sponsored post for Citrus Lane in my Facebook feed I took a look and decided on a 3-month subscription to give it a try!

Citrus Lane finds new kids products for ages newborn through 5.  Each month you get a box with 4 or more items that relate to your child's age. Sorta like Birchbox for kids.

I opted for a 3-month subscription at a price of $24/month.  I did save 50% on my first box with the code SAVEHALF.

Here is what I got:

Bake N Shake Donut Rattle by North American Bear Co. I like it. It's soft and squeaks but doesn't rattle.  Maybe we got one that was faulty. Colton isn't overly interested in it yet, but it's hard for him to get his hands around.  The set of 6 is sold for $30.

Cage Bell from Hohner Kids. Colton is just starting to get into toys that make noise.  He likes toys that play music more than rattles.  This one is light weight and easy for him to get hand around to hold and shake.  It retails for $7.50. 

Where Do I Live Soft Book by Tiny Love. This book is awesome! By far our favorite item.  It is such a fun, creative, activity book. It's soft, makes a crinkly noise, is full of bright colors and things to grab and touch.  Plus, like it's description says, it's good for tummy time. It comes with a $14.99 price tag. Worth it!

Calendula Baby Care from Weleda. We haven't used the samples yet.  I'll probably throw them in the diaper bag and use them sometime.

Colton really enjoyed the book!

Then he got tired...

So, was it worth it?  In terms of money spent, the three products alone add up to around $27.50 - that doesn't include shipping.  I definitely got my money's worth! And, we got some good things which leaves me looking forward to next month.

High five for Friday

Friday, October 17, 2014

Happy Friday to you all. I'm glad to be working from home today, enjoying the sunshine through my house and a cup of coffee.

One | I started a new leg workout. Truth be told, I've never been happy with my legs.  So, I enlisted the help of the employee fitness center at my office.  Alex set me up with a great workout plan that I'm really excited to dive into for the next few weeks.  It's challenging and fun.

Two | Colton's Citrus Lane Box Arrived. Citrus lane is a monthly subscription that sends us new products for kids related to their age.  We got 3 nice toys and some lotion samples.  I'll post a review on my blog.  

Three | Conversations with Colton. Oh my this boy can chat.  We had a great little talk after his bath last night. 

Four | FaceTime with Grandma and Grandpa. I hate to admit this but I never used FaceTime until Monday.  We tried it out with my mom and dad so they could see Colton.  He thought it was more cool to see himself in the phone before my mom answered. Ha!

Five | Great Food. Last Saturday I was invited to an afternoon lunch, with my teammates, at one of our company Vice President's homes.  His family is so nice and the food was so delicious.

Boho chic inspired e-design

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

I love the Boho look but I've always been scared to try it.  First, it's out of my comfort zone and second, it's WAY out of my husband's comfort zone.  

Fortunately a recent e-design client loved this style too and asked me to help her to design a boho-chic bedroom with a sophisticated twist.

My favorite thing about this style is that nothing matches and at the same time, everything matches.  The eclectic mix of colors, patterns, and textures will make this room so visually appealing.

If you have a space you'd like to have styled, I'd love to help you. Check out my e-design page for more information.

High five for Friday

Friday, October 10, 2014

This high five for Friday post is long overdue!  Do you not do something only to realize how important it really is?  That's how I feel about my high five for Friday posts...

Hot yoga/barre. I've been taking these classes for the past month or so.  I feel SO good afterward because I feel like I sweat out all of the icky stuff my body has been collecting over the week. I never knew I could sweat so much...

Harvest has begun. Finally, a break in the rain has allowed us to get in the field.  This needed to happen.  A bored husband is no good.

Trunk show. My friend, Julie, invited me to a trunk show at a local boutique shop.  It was so fun to shop with friends over some snacks and drinks.

DIY projects. I've finally gotten a few DIY projects done that I've been thinking about for a long time - painted a lamp, changed out artwork, and finished up a wedding shower gift.


Playtime. Colton is rolling over, reaching for toys, and starting to giggle.  All while fighting off a cold.  He's a champ. 

I really need to start taking more pictures...

Cheers to the weekend ahead!
