August Poppy Parcel Review

This is my third month of Poppy Parcel and I have enjoyed each box. I think this box is a little different than other boxes, because Poppy Parcel includes a variety of items in each box. I never know what to expect in each Poppy Parcel. The future for Poppy Parcel seems a little up in the air since Poppy Parcel is currently looking for new owners . I am anxiously waiting to see what the future will hold for this subscription.

What is Poppy Parcel?
Poppy Parcel is a monthly subscription that sends out special treats (3-4 to be exact) for the everyday ordinary girl. Very simple concept, but the box is full of great items, for just $19.99 a month.

August Poppy Parcel

Nail Butter by Nail Butter- $20

These are great to help nails in strengthening and moisture. It is great for nails and cuticles.  My nails definitely could use some strengthening any day of the week.

Especially Paper Lemon Tag Pack- $2

I am not sure what I am going to use these for yet, but I am sure they will get used with some crafty project. This also came with a credit for $8.50 for a digital downloadable banner from Especially Paper.

Counter Couture Strawberry Tea Towel -$10

This is a super cute towel. We can always use nice towels for the kitchen, so we definitely will get our use out of this.


Poppy Parcel also added in two little cards for 20 % off at, which sells professional prints,  and  20% off at Brown Pigeon, which sells handcrafted stamps.

TICKLED PINK OPINION: Poppy Parcel always is such a whirl wind of different items. This month the value of this Poppy Parcel was around $32, not including the credit to Especially Paper. I always like to see when the values of the products in a box exceed what you pay for the box. This month’s Poppy Parcel box was not my favorite compared to past Poppy Parcel boxes, but I still enjoyed it.  I cannot wait to see what the future holds for Poppy Parcel, and if I can look forward to a September Box.

Until next time

Fab Kids August Back-to-School Box Review

I completely adore Fab Kids right now. There new line for August Back-To-School collection is just great. And, it is Fab Kid’s largest Back-To-School collection ever. With all the awesome picks it is hard not want it all. 

What is Fab Kids?
Fab Kids, which is affiliated with Just Fab, is a company started by a couple of mothers, and Christina Applegate (movie star), and founded to let girls express their individuality through fashion, while allowing parents to get high end clothing at reasonable prices. 

After taking the style quiz, Fab Kids then picks out clothing perfect for your little one. You can pick and choose what you would like. Every outfit comes with three pieces, and the cost is $39.95, shipping is always free,  and the clothing ranges in size from 2 to 12. You are not obligated to pick a set each month, and can skip if you choose as well. And now Fab Kids has boys clothing!


Stripe Play Outfit

This outfit usually would cost $60 to buy piece by piece, however, with Fab Kids the cost is only $39.95.

Back Zip Stripped Dress- $34

I absolutely love this dress, and after I received it from Fab Kids I loved it even more. This dress is just so cute. Love the black and white, with contrasting zipper in back. The skirt has just the right amount of twirl, which I love.  I think I would have to buy something like this for me if it was in my size.

Fab Soft Leggings - $16

These were said to be super soft, and yes indeed they are. These are perfect for a great fall look when the weather starts to get a little colder.

Blue Bow Hair Clip- $10

Fab Kids advertises this outfit with a Red Headband, which I prefer, but we got a blue bow hair clip. I would not normally pick this out for our little one, but I am sure we can wear it sometime.

I would have had our little one try it on, but she has not been in the mood for modeling off clothing for pictures lately.  However, here is the full outfit off the Fab Kids site. So cute! Wish we had the red hair band now, the red just accents it perfectly.

Top Picks for Next Fab Kids Box

Top Boys Picks 

TICKLED PINK OPINION:         After receiving this outfit from Fab Kids, which was my second experience getting clothing from Fab Kids, I liked this subscription even more. The clothing was just so cute. The materials the clothing are made out of felt great and looked like they were very well made in my eyes. I probably will  not get clothing every single month from Fab Kids, but every other month would be great for our little one since she is growing so fast lately. The big plus about Fab Kids is that it makes getting clothing for our little ones very convenient for parents, and not too expensive. And, I think it is great that they are offering boys clothing now.  I look forward to seeing more from Fab Kids, and even though I said I would wait a couple months to get more clothing for our little one, I may have to give in and get some of my top picks for our little one before they sell out.  

What do you think of August Fab Kids Back-to-School Collection? If you would like to learn more or sign up for Fab Kids you can HERE, and right now you can get your first outfit for only $19.95.

Until next time

Bulu Box Review- Regular Box vs. Weight Loss Box and Promo Code

Bulu Box is a box that I look forward to each month, as I really like trying out new vitamin and supplement products before I buy them. This month I got both the regular Bulu Box and the weight loss Bulu Box.

What is Bulu Box?

If you have not heard of Bulu Box, well it is a perfect time to learn about how awesome this little orange box is. Bulu Box is a perfect way to find new supplements, vitamins, and health and weigh loss products that you may have not ever heard of before. Bulu Box also provides great tips and information to help to lead a healthy lifestyle.  Bulu Box has two different options;  you can pick the regular box or the weight loss box. Each month it cost only $10, and each box comes with an array of products that are just Awesome.


Kelapo Cocunut Oil

Was really excited to get a sample of coconut oil for cooking. My brother currently uses this when he cooks anything in a pan, like scrambled eggs, and he says it works better than regular oil, and is better for you.

Garden of Life Raw Organic Meal

Celsuis Negative Calorie Energy Drink

Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts

 Hemp Hearts are a great source of protein, and I have heard that they are really good, and get some great reviews if you search the web. I may have to add these on some yogurt or a salad.

Athletic Edge LV

I have tried these, and they are supposed to  suppress your appetite and also supports a positive attitude during the dieting, and the energy you need to get through the day. I usually take green tea pills for a source of energy and appetite control, these seem to have the same effect on me.


Cocoa Via; and 

Power Bar Performance Energy Blend

Both the products, Cocoa Via and the PowerBar Blend, I have received in other boxes. The Cocoa Via I just have not tried yet, but it is supposed to be a good source of protein.

The PowerBar energy I have tried and it tastes like apple sauce mixed with other fruits. These are okay to keep around for an on the go snack.

Shapeology Burn Blend; and

Twin Labs Power Fuel

 I have tried on Shapeology Burn Blend before, and am really pleased with the results.  I really think that it helps the metabolism speed up, and while I am not 100% if I am burning more calories with this supplement, I can only hope so since it speeds up the metabolism. This is on my “To Buy” List already.

The Power Fuel is going in the pile for my fiance’ to try. This supplement is good to give your muscles the boost they need to keep going during workouts.

Garden of Life Raw Organic Meal; and

Daily Burn $30 Gift

The Garden of Life Raw Organic Meal, is like a meal replacement protein drink , and will be great in the mornings. I think these will be for me, since I do not think the other half will like the flavor we got. This came in both Bulu Boxes. 

This is a gift card for an internet workout library. I am currently doing TapoutXT2  program  but may use this afterward.

TICKLED PINK OPINION:         After receiving both Bulu Boxes, I am not sure which one I like more.  I think for this round I like the regular box better because it had the Shapeology Burn Blend, and that is one of my favorites from Bulu Box.  However, both Bulu Boxes provided great samples that I was happy with this go around. The only thing for the future that I would recommend Bulu Box improving on, is that I wish all samples were the same size as the Shapeology sample. It seems that a little sample like 2 supplement pills are not enough to actually tell if you want to buy it or not.

PROMO/COUPON:  Right now using Promo CodeBULUGAN131”, for new subscribers, Bulu Box is offering the following promotion:

3 Months for $15 (regularly $30)
6 Months for $30 (regularly $60)
12 Months for $60 (regularly $120)

This is a great health subscription box. If you would like to sign up for Bulu Box you can do so HERE.

Until next time

Going Nuts about Watanut- Unboxing and Review

This has to be my new favorite foodie subscription. My favorite things to snack are granola, almonds, cashews etc.  When I heard about Watanut I was super excited to see what it was all about. And I am not the only one in the house who loves this new subscription, so does my fiance’

What is Watanut?

The great people behind Watanut started this great subscription because they wanted to give people healthy options for their snacks, whether at home, at work, training, or just for the heck of it. Each month Watanut sends to your door a pack of 4 healthy snacks,  that are not processed and tastes great. The cost is $25 per month.

As a side note about Watanut, they have partnered up with their local Boys & Girls Club to provide at-risk youth a safe place to learn and grow. A portion of every Watanut box goes to help kids succeed academically, model good character and lead healthy lifestyles.


I really think the Watanut box that the snacks come in is so fun, just like the name "Watanut".  I always appreciate when a company takes pride in the presentation of their product!

Honey Badger BBQ

This is a mix of  BBQ peanuts, honey sesame sticks, and roasted sunflower seeds. This mix was my favorite. The BBQ was not too overpowering, but added great flavor to this mix.  This was a perfect mix to satisfy that salty snack craving I get.


When I opened this box, this mixture of Cranberries, roasted almonds, and salted cashews is what my fiance’ went for first. And, an hour later it was pretty much gone. This mix is super tasty and a great energy booster. The salty and the sweet mix perfect.

The Happy Nut

I just do not know anyone who does not like roasted and salted pistachios. So yummy, and a perfect snack food.  I have purchased some pretty awful tasting pistachios in the past, but these were just delicious and fresh.

A Walk in the Woods

This was just so yummy.  A Walk in the Woods is a mix of rolled oats, honey, brazil nuts, cashews, coconut, and cinnamon.  Perfect for breakfast, alone or with some yogurt.  A great morning pick me up.

TICKLED PINK OPINION: This absolutely is my favorite snack box right now, especially because it includes my favorite snack food, which is mixed nuts, and I think that the value and convenience of the box is great. Each individual pack is well sized, and is perfect to take on the go.  A big win for me is that there are a couple different snack options that work for the whole family instead of just one of us. Additionally,  I really appreciate that Watanut has presented their company as a company that cares about their customers, and the community.   I look forward to enjoying more Watanut packs in the future.

I-Ella The List Soho Bag Review

Yay, another clothing and shoe subscription came about a week ago, and it was for me! Another great month for I-Ella the List Bag, and for this month the theme was shoes. Yes, ladies shoes! I was beyond thrilled to see what was packed inside this month’s bag.

What is I-Ella the List?

I-Ella the List is your Personal Stylist in a Box. Each month I-Ella the List will pick out a theme, and send you a box full of fashion goodness, and extra goodies. You can pick from three bags: 1) Starter Bag, which is $59; 2)Soho Bag, which is $129; and 3) St. Barth’s Bag, which is $389.  Before signing up you take a style quiz, to find out what you like best, and I-Ella the List also has you provide all your sizing information, so that any clothing and shoes fit perfectly. The sit back and wait to for the fashion to come to your door.


This month the theme was shoes, and I was thinking, well of course the contents will be shoes. Well, I-Ella went beyond that, and I cannot wait to show you what was in my Soho Bag this month.

Herban Essentials Towelettes -$6.00

These are included in most my I-Ella the List Bags, but I really like them. In this month’s box they included only Lavender, which is may favorite out of them all. These are great to pack in my purse, or to have in a bag for the little one.

Clairvoyant Beauty  DePuffing Eye Gel and Misc. Samples- $16

I am always looking for a better DePuffing Eye Gel. I currently use Benefit Cosmestic, and I really like it,  but we will see how this matches up. There were also samples included of French Clay Cleanser and UnderEye Brightening Gel.  What I like about Clairvoyant is that it is vegan and no animal testing.

Rifle Paper Co. Garden Recipe Card Set- $12

These are just super cute recipe cards, and I love Rifle Paper Co. Somethng I didn't expect to see in my I-Ella the List bag, but I like them.  I may have to find a nice little recipe card holder now.  Any suggestions where to get one?

Michael Lauren Clothing Black Tank Maxi Dress- $90

Michael Lauren has a list of A-list clients like Halle Berry, Charlize Theron, and Jessica Alba. I really like these celeb’s style, so I thought I would  like what was packed inside my I-Ella the List Soho Bag. And, yes, I do! A very classic black tank maxi dress. It is just my style, and is super comfy. I-Ella the List most definitely is keeping my style in mind with this pick. Love it!

MTNG Nile Sandals- $85

And now the SHOES! I usually would not have picked these sandals out these on my own. However, they are super stylish, and I think would look very good with the black tank maxi. MTNG shoes are made in Spain and are said to be super high quality. I am very happy with these sandals.

TICKLED PINK OPINION: The total value of my I-Ella the List Soho Bag this month was $209, and the cost for me was $139 (shipping is extra), and I think the Soho Bag I got was well worth it. I could not be happier with the Shoes I-Ella the List Soho Bag. I am super impressed by the turnaround of the I-Ella bags that I have been getting lately. If you read any of my reviews a couple months ago,  I was a little displeased with what I had been getting. However, I have been super happy with the last two Soho Bags that I have received, and hope that I keep getting bags like this. I know that this bag’s theme was shoes, but I was most excited about my Michaeal Lauren Clothing Black Tank Maxi Dress, and cannot wait to wear it. The next bag’s theme is Sex in the City, and I cannot wait to see what is in store for I-Ella the List Bags. Another maxi would be fine by me! Haha.

What did you think of the Shoes I-Ella the List Soho Bag? Are you wondering which character you are most like from Sex in the City, and what I-Ella the List would pick out for you in their next bag? Well, to learn more or sign up, you can visit I-Ella the List HERE.
