Glossybox May 2016 Beauty Box Review and Coupon Code

The May 2016 Glossybox really surprised me! It felt like it had so much good stuff in it. I wasn't expecting it either. Or rather, I thought I'd already got it earlier in the month but I guess not since here it is. My brain is a little fried by lack of sleep, staying up with my little dog who had surgery.
Glossybox does send interesting skincare and beauty products, I have to admit. It's a little superfluous at the moment and I do cancel it over the Allure Beauty Box at times but when there's a deal, I always snag one. I think I got a 6 month subscription where the boxes ended up being around $12 each. That's totally worth it!

The Cost: $21/month

What You Get: Five luxury deluxe sized beauty essentials, from both well-known and emerging brands, delivered to your door each month.

Anyway, it was perfect timing because we were about to head out to a party at a friends so I decided to bring it along.

OwlCrate Book Subscription Review May 2016 "Steampunk" plus Coupon Code

One thing I have to say about OwlCrate is that they send FANTASTIC books. The curators have some pretty great taste in Young Adult fare. I've been so pleasantly surprised by so many YA books and authors, it's been a wonderful way to flesh out my to-be-read (TBR) list. I think it's nearly 500 books long at this point.

OwlCrate not only sends a recently released, hardbound YA book but also includes what I suppose is considered "fangirl" material. These include things with famous book quote prints, bits of jewelry that fit the theme for the month and anything special that would make a book lover happy.

The Cost: $36.98/month to the US (OwlCrate also ships within Canada and Internationally).


What You Get: Every crate comes equipped with a top notch, newly released YA novel alone with lots of goodies geared towards bookworms. Goodies consist of jewelry, bookmarks, stickers, prints, toys, accessories, and all sorts of wonderful randomness!

Trendy Butler May 2016 Menswear Subscription Review and Coupon

If you're looking for a menswear subscription, Trendy Butler sends monthly shipments of clothing from socks to joggers and jackets. When you sign up, you'll be asked about your style and preferences. This is a fun subscription and I've been happy with the quality of what we've received. When I first subscribed, the brands were all new to me, and now I'm a little more familiar with what gets sent, I see the same ones pretty regularly. I don't know if that's because of my husbands preferences or his size.

My husband is tall and athletic. He's 6'1" and around 187 pounds. He's very broad shouldered and muscular so it can be hard to find clothing via subscription that fits properly. Shirts tend to be difficult because either the sleeves aren't long enough or aren't wide enough through the shoulders or chest. This issue eliminates a lot of what TB has to offer, especially button ups unless they're huge. The problem with huge, as muscular, athletic men probably already know, is that if it's wide enough in the chest, it's a swimming pool around the waist. Fit is difficult!

If you are slim and lean, though, this subscription was made for you. You'll likely fit right in to everything. Maybe it goes without saying but fit, average body types tend to do the best with mystery clothing subscriptions. If you're on the short side, the big and tall side or you know you have a body feature that you have trouble dressing yourself, a clothing subscription is not the answer. Trust me.

If none of that applies to you, read on!

The Cost: $65/month

What You Get: One to three high, quality stylish menswear items worth at least $150 from well known and up-and-coming brands.

The Bride Box May 2016 Review and Coupon Code

The Bride Box is for girls who are excited about the process of being a bride, planning a wedding and getting married. While all of that was quite awhile ago for me (okay, 7 years), it doesn't mean that I can't get excited for the few around me who have not yet found "the one."
Past boxes have consisted of wedding themed clothing, knickknacks, bachelorette party favors, do-it-yourself projects, wedding favor ideas, etc. There's really a lot that can go on when you're getting married and if you're planning a big shindig, a box like this would be very fun.

The Cost: $35/month

What You Get:  A box filled with surprise bridal gifts such as beauty products, handmade items, DIY projects, and more.
