My Friday Ponderings and Other Stuff

Hey, everybody!

I'm currently awaiting the DHL guy with my Superfood and K-Spa Hair and Body 3 Memeboxes.  He doesn't know I'm waiting for him because if he did, he would have been here by now.  Just to spare me the agony.  He's a pretty nice guy.

You know who else is nice?  My husband.  He just asked me how did I find out about subscription boxes in the first place.  I don't even remember.  I might have been looking up a product review and it was in a box on someone's blog and then I was like "Oh, what?! That's amazing!".  I told him I signed up for five boxes that same night without telling him. :D

Right now I wish my Target had those EOS Coconut Lip Balms but if they do, they're hiding them really well.

I also just made the Mason Jar Celebration Cookies from the Popsugar August 2014 box.  I'd take a picture but those are some uuuuugly cookies.  They taste fine.  Not spectacular and mostly sugary but edible.

My dogs are looking at me.  It must be four o'clock... LOL! It's 4:01pm!  How do dogs know?!  I have to go feed them now since they've pulled out the super cute puppy "Feed Me" eyes.

I'm really loving the plethora of sheet masks I've been getting in my Memeboxes.  I think I'm hooked.  I also got a big stash of A-True products that I need to review.  There's so many to try that it's taking me awhile to get the review together.  I'm loving their Black Tea Cleanser and the Snow White Essence so far.

We are having some friends over tomorrow.  We are going to head to the lake rain or shine and get them out on the lake on a paddleboard or at least the kayaks.  I love living in Washington because we've got so much green and blue! Lots of forests and lots of lakes.  It's my favorite place ever, for sure.

I've made a major step and I've sent out to have a true logo made for this blog!  Personally, I love the name I came up with but I need a for real logo.  I can't wait to see what they've come up with.  I used a website called fiverr.  Basically, you pay someone $5 to do something for you.  It's a bunch of ads by people who can provide a certain service.  You choose the ad you like the best and pay them $5 and .... well, we'll see what happens!

So expect some changes on the blog and also Twitter and Instagram.  I can't keep using a butchered Memebox logo forever.  If you're really curious, you can see my face on my Twitter profile right now.  I know.  I broke my cardinal rule.  I did it for a good cause, though.  I think it's fun knowing what the person looks like whose blog I'm reading.  (I'm pretty sure there are more grammatical errors in that sentence that is feasibly possible).

I'm really sad because I've decided to taper down my Memebox because I'm have pretty serious stash of product to go through now.  Instead I'm going to focus on some new subscription boxes!  I'm going to do a new Tea subscription, I have a couple food ones coming.  That would be Hatchery and Mantry and then, I also am going to try out some Soap boxes!

If you know of some great subscription boxes that you love, tell me so that I can add them to my list!

  1. I caved and bought my first Memebox today - doesn't ship until September 2nd, I'm afraid I won't be seeing it until the end of next month! Looking forward to seeing the blog facelift!

    1. Thank you! Which Memebox did you get?! I love knowing what interests other people. Right now I really want the Sleeping Beauty but I bet I end up with the Yogurt Cosmetics instead.

    2. The Earth and Sea box! Something about rearding "volcanic ash" in the description really did it for me, haha. I kept putting the Sleeping Beauty in my shopping cart then taking it out, something about the description couldn't get me to commit, plus I don't think I wanted to wait for it!!!

    3. Yes!! Me, too!! And the wait is killer, I have to admit. :D I'm *really* excited about Earth and Sea. I'm hoping there a wash off mask in there.

    1. Thanks! I hope it all works out well :D

      They are SO ugly but they got eaten yesterday. I put them out for the party. :)

  4. I didn't put my face on my blog for the first several months I was writing it. I would actually black my eyes out of pictures, which I'm sure was super-creepy, hahaha. Snack boxes are always awesome if you're trying to work through a backlog of beauty products! Anything you can eat or drink tends to go quickly, at least in our house. :P

    1. You were one of my inspirations for doing it :D and you are totally right about the snack boxes. I'm on the hunt for some new ones!
