Happy Rebel Box Fall 2016 Review and Coupon

Happy Rebel Box, which you will notice shortly, has an edgy, rocker sort of vibe that I really like. While I love my girly things, I'm also partial to what my husband calls a "goth chick" sense of style. Hey, I like hardware, I can't help it. And my latest pair of boots fits right in with the theme for this box.

For some reason I totally skipped reviewing the summer Happy Rebel Box. Now the Fall one has arrived and I'm determined to make sure I get the review up. After the very first Happy Rebel Box (which you can see here), I signed up for a one year subscription. I loved that first box so much! The second one had a round towel, tote bag, a silicon set of wine glasses and a black lace kimono. I ended up loving the kimono that I thought I would hate and unhappy with the round towel I thought I would love because it faded horribly after one wash. I'm not sure that I'd ever use the silicon wine glasses. They're very... unstable. If you accidentally squeeze it too hard while you're talking, its gonna go everywhere!

Back to this season's box!

The Cost: $100/quarterly

What You Get: Each box will contain 4-6 items that will vary box to box, so you will never receive the same types of items repeatedly. Each box could contain jewelry, fashion accessories, home decor, beauty products, as well as other various lifestyle items that fit the collection of the box as well as the Happy Rebel modern and edgy style.

Something Snacks September 2016 Subscription Box Review and Coupon

Something Snacks sends a themed box of sweet and savory snacks every month. This review is for the September "Honey" box. It's a little late because of all the moving chores I'm swamped with, though. I like Something Snacks because I know there will always be something crunchy and delicious as well as something more on the dessert spectrum. And while there may be one or two "healthy" type items, for the most part its tasty, satisfying goodness.

The Cost: $13/month

What You Get: Each box will contain 7 new and tasty, hand selected snacks. You can expect something familiar and something more out of the ordinary.

Chococurb Mini October 2016 Chocolate Subscription Box Review and Coupon

If you're looking for a subscription that's all about chocolate, Chococurb is perfect. I love the fact that you can customize it to your chocolate preferences but even more than that is how they send good chocolate. The bars I've received have been rich, decadent and creative. The majority of them have also been brand new to me, as well. It's hard to get hooked on so many delicious, hand crafted chocolates.

There are three different sizes you can choose from now. There's the Nano, which is $10 and has five small to medium chocolates in it each month, the Mini which includes an assortment of 3 specialty chocolates and the Regular that's $35 with an assortment of 5 to 7 chocolates or chocolate related items. These items can come from small, local chocolatiers to more established, national brands.

This review is for the Mini Chococurb box.

The Cost: $20/month.

What You Get: Three specialty chocolates or chocolate related items from small, local chocolatiers to more established, national brands.

Enjoy Leggings September 2016 Review and Coupon

If you haven't heard of Enjoy Leggings, you're in for a treat. I'm totally loving it. Every month you'll get a new pair of super soft, extra comfy leggings. They're usually patterned and colorful so it's not like you're getting boring woolly black ones. Nothing wrong with woolly black ones, of course, but those are easy to find.
When you sign up, you'll get to choose your size but the patterns are the same for everyone. Sizes start at 2-4 (Small) and go to 14-18 (Plus). Although, I think the last two I got were One Size so...

The Cost: $16/month.

What You Get: One fashionable and fun pair of quality leggings every month.

Let me just say that these might be the most comfortable leggings I've ever owned. I'm actually slightly addicted to them now. They're so cute I wear them out but they're so comfy I wear them staying in, too.

RawSpiceBar September 2016 Argentine Spice Box Review and Coupon

RawSpiceBar features spice blends celebrating Argentine cuisine this month. While Argentina is famous for it's barbeque, with it's heavy influx of immigrants from Italy and Spain, there is a melting pot of influences that cover everything from pasta to scones.

There have been a few changes since RawSpiceBar first started. The price is now $8 and while the spices used to weigh in around 2-3 ounces, they are now 1-1.5oz. The packaging has also changed from resealable packets to the current tear top. I definitely prefer the old packaging but the blends are still great.

The Cost: $8/month

What You Get: Three spice pouches, which are enough to create 3 individual dishes serving 4 people. The total amount of spices will typically weigh between 1-1.5 ounces each month. You'll also receive recipes and cultural tips and notes.
