Scent Trunk



My name is Courtney and I have an addiction to perfume. I used to work at a store that had amazing prices and with my amazing employee discount, I was dangerous!

                                                           

Can you tell I have a little perfume addiction? Do you like perfume as much as me? You will love the company I am about to talk about!

                     
Scent Trunk is a company all about perfume. You first get a Fit Kit. In this fit kit is a box of miniature rollers and different types of scents. The types of scents are floral, citrus, amber, woody, chypre and aromatic. Pardon my messy ugly paper, I changed my mind on one but had written in permanent marker!

                                      


                   

What you are supposed to do is smell each one and see which type of scent you like. The best way to do this is prepare to smell like Bath and Body Works. Choose a spot on your arm roll on the scent try it and repeat. Everyone's P.H. level is different and perfume smells different depending on who is wearing it. Once you figure out which scent you love, like, and hate. There is a card with each scent and their name along with areas to mark off your thoughts on the scent. After you do this, you can email or text in your results.


After you send that in, someone uses your results to send you a personalized perfume. I honestly was not a huge fan of the tester scents I was given. I kind of winged it and chose the ones I sort of liked.

                           
Along with the perfume, I got a card with some information about the scent. After I tried the scent out, I was extremely surprised at the end result.














On me this scent it smells more like citrus with a hint of some woodsy elements. On my friend she says it smells like fruity pebbles.

Panty by Post


                
Isn't it funny that as kids one of the dreaded gifts was socks or underwear? Now as a mom, I am overly happy when I am able to purchase a new pair of undies! The only downside is, I honestly rarely have enough time to shop for myself anymore. I am a mom of two (ages 2 and 4) with one on the way, a full time student, I work part-time, and I run this blog!


Lately, I have enjoyed the convenience of shopping online. I have been addicted to subscription boxes! I have seen kids craft subscription boxes, treat subscription boxes, even alcohol subscription boxes! This box is by far one of the best I have seen so far! Underwear subscription box! Get cute underwear sent straight to your door! Forget the awkwardness of shopping at the mall, forget Victoria's Secret! This is by far the neatest idea ever!


Panty by Post is a company that sends you cute underwear. You can choose from briefs (and no not grandma underwear), thong or surprise me!


They have quite a few options when it comes to subscriptions. So I will go over that briefly before I move onto their product.


Everyday Basics starts at $15/month
Signature Line starts at $22/month
Naughty but Nice starts at $24.99/month
Premium Luxe starts at $35/month
Bra & Panty Matching Sets starts at $49.99/month

You can buy for yourself or purchase a gift for a special someone!

I received this super cute green pair of underwear in the mail. I absolutely love them!They have just enough lace and looked like it had just enough coverage!

                     
I thought the bows in the back were super cute also!


                                           
                  
                 
I unfortunately underestimated the size of my hindquarters... I honestly needed to order an x-large instead of a large. I could tell they wouldn't fit as soon as I held them up. My loss my friends gain though, she was just as in love with the cute underwear as I was. If you run into the same situation as me and the underwear does not fit, don't fret. You can email the company and get a free size exchange!

I know what I will be putting on my Christmas wish list though!

You can even try Everyday Basics, Signature Line, and Premium Luxe for $9.99. Prices go to the original prices mentioned above after one month. If you love it then keep the subscription, if it is not your cup-o-tea then you can cancel anytime!

WINC Wine Club






 



I am a mommy of two, I am a full-time college student, I work part-time, and for fun I write on my blog! A slightly crazy schedule, right? How do I stay sane with out this chaos? One word... WINE (the kind you drink, not the noise that comes from my kids haha!)
                     

Wine is great! It comes in red and white and so many different brands and flavors. The only downside to wine is when you run out of it. Just when you want more, you have to go to the store to get more. I have such a busy schedule and if I forget something at the store, I am not going back. Especially when it comes to wine, I like it, but I like my sleep more!










 

I recently discovered a company called a site called Winc. Winc delivers wine straight to your doorstep. Make sure someone 21 or older is available, because a signature is required upon delivery.

                 

There are a few steps you have to do before you get to buying the wine. First, you make an account on Winc. Then, you create your palate profile by answering 6 questions. Once you do this there is a list of wine recommendations. Winc's wines start at $13 and if you buy four or more bottles, shipping is on the house! Once you are able to try some of their wines you are given the opportunity to rate these wines. The more you rate the wines the more recommendations will show up. After you rate ten bottles of wine, you get $10.


Being that said, I would love to tell you about my experience with this company. I love may love wine but I usually stuck with my few favorites. I have not been very adventurous when it came to trying different wines. I decided to go with this company to broaden my wine preference.


                      

Setting up my account and profile was super easy. The questions were a fun way to get to know my taste in wines.
My first box I chose two red wines and two white wines.

When I got them in the mail it was super exciting. The first thing I noticed was the wine was well protected in the box. Another surprise was the neat recipes that were included in the order!


                               








 



                                                           







The Two red wines I chose were the 2015 Alchymist Noir Red Blend and 2015 The Independent Zinfadel.














The two whites I chose were
2014 Wonderful Wine Co. White Blend and 2015 Vinyasa Chenin Blanc.























So far I have finished two (Alchymist and Wonderful Wine)  and I am in the middle of drinking my third bottle ( Vinyasa Chenin Blanc). Yes, I am a slow, I am the only wine drinker in the house. I absolutely loved the Wonderful and I am enjoying the Chenin Blanc. I felt that the Alchymist's flavor was a little too much for me. It was a delicious wine, it was just not my cup o' tea.

Once I am done with my last bottle and a half, I will be ordering more!



You can start your own Winc wine experience here and receive $25 off your first order!

MunchPak











I am by far one of the biggest snack person ever. I love salty, sweet, and even slightly spicy things. I currently am receiving a different snack monthly box. After trying Munch Pak, this is most likely going to change.

I wont leave you hanging and I will talk about Munch Pak and their services in more detail!

Munch Pak has three different options for their monthly boxes. Their MunchPak Mini that contains 5+ full size snacks for $9.95. They have an Original MunchPak which contains 10+ full size snacks for $19.95. They also have a FamilyPak and this contains 20+ full sized snacks for $39.95.

First, you choose what type of box you want, the mini, original, or the family. Once you do that you are given the choice of how often you want this box sent to you. You can choose from weekly, every two weeks, or every month.

There is also a customize area of the website. You can choose from a list of different snacks. You can choose either you always want that type of item in your box or you do not want that type of item in your box. So if you cant do spicy? Check off the negative sign. You can do this for an additional amount of $1 each item.

                    

Also in the customize area is an area for beverages. You can add coffee, tea, soda, and juice to your monthly box for an additional $5 each. I'm personally picky when it comes to doing additional stuff like that. I personally do not NEED a beverage every month with my subscription. I decided to use the ask a question area of the website. I asked if you got beverages if you do not pay the extra money. Their response was, it is very rare, but you may ones in a blue moon get a beverage in your pack. I honestly think its that more special if you do not know when or what you beverage you will get!

                    

Once you are done customizing your box all you have to do is follow through the steps to check out. Depending on what option you chose for your box, frequency, and extra determines how much you will sped monthly.

Now onto what you might get in your box! I got the original box sent to me. I was super excited to find out what I got in my box!


When I first opened the box, it was wrapped with tissue paper and had a super cute note. It also came with information about their app.

                          

You download the app, scan the item and learn about the food item. This is helpful because some snacks are in different languages and it shows exactly where that candy came from. As I started to take the snacks out, the more excited I got.

                                                




                                                                              I am a big fan of chips and I got two different types in this box, YUM!

















I got a regular size bage of Takis Zombie. This Mexican chip is Habanero and Cucumber flavored. I did not mind the spicy aspect of this chip but the cucumber was a little too strong for me. Being that said for some odd reason my two year old and four year old loved them!















The second regular bag of chips is a New Orleans company of kettle cooked chips. The flavor is Cajun Dill Gator-Tators. I am not a fan of sour pickles, I am more of a sweet jerkin person. Even though they are dill flavored, they were DELICIOUS! Even both my kids loved them.

                                                                     


This box came with a beverage and it was super exciting. I honestly needed something to drink after trying those spicy chips. I got something called Club Orange. It is a UK brand of an orange soda made with real oranges. I absolutely loved it, and was nice enough to let my kids have one little sip each. I mean I was considerate, right? haha!

                                               
                       


This box also had something savory-ish. I actually had to use the app to learn more about this. It is Yaokin Cocobis Crackers and its from Japan. From the description it is like a sugar cookie and cracker in one. It was sweet but not too sweet and definitely crunchy and crumbly. I liked it but my kids were not fans of it.















Another savory item was an item from Thailand. This snack is Sweet Corn flavored Pretz. They reminded me of pocky without the chocolate. I thought they were going to be weird because they taste like sweet corn, but I was completely wrong. My kids and I all enjoyed this treat. I was actually sad when they were all gone.

My favorite part of the box was all of the sweets. all full sized too, no tiny tummy teasers!

                                                   
I got something called a swoffle. This is a gluten free US made caramel filled waffle cookie. It was not crunchy but very good. My kids and I all liked it.

                                             

A Croatian chocolate bar was included in this box. This candy bar has hazelnuts in it, YUM! Everyone in the family loved this bar, my kids, husband and myself!
                                            

Another candy bar included was a German candy bar. It was chocolate on the outside and Oreo on the inside. Out of the two candy bars this one was all of our favorite!

          



                                         

I have heard of Pocky but I have never tried it before. When i found out this Japanese treat was in the box was super happy. The only thing I was a little leary about was the flavor, Pumpkin. In the end it was actually delicious. My kids and I ate them all before my husband could even get home from work.

                                              
                                               


                                                

Also in the box was an Austrian wafer treat. These were honestly the best chocolate wafers I have tasted. I believe it was the chocolate that made a difference. We devoured these before my husband could even get home.

                                                   

The final item in the box was a Polish treat. It has a peppermint outside and cocoa inside. The peppermint part was not super hard or even as minty as i thought it would be. The chocolate inside was delicious! I mostly ate them myself and I shared a couple with my kids. I know, I am greedy when it comes to sweets.

Over all I really like this box. I am honestly thinking about switching companies.
