Citrus Lane Review and Best Deals of the Year and Promo Code

I was very excited to get another opportunity to bring the excitement of the Citrus Lane box back into our house for our little one. I really was impressed with this box before and so did our little one, so we knew to expect some great goodies in this November box. It was perfect timing as well, as her birthday was around the same time the box came.

What is Citrus Lane?

Citrus Lane is a monthly subscription that sends out age appropriate engaging toys, healthy and nutritious treats, snuggly items, books and so much more for kids ages 6 months to 6 years old. Each monthly box costs $25 per month. 

Right now they have their best deals of the year going on. 

3 month subscription each box cost $18.67

6 month subscription each box cost $17.50

12 month subscription each box cost $16.33

Citrus Lane Box 
This box was designed to include great items good for playtime and bedtime. I originally thought this was November's box, but I was informed that this, in fact, is October's box. 

Dreamz & Twinkies To Go from Cloud B- $18
This was a hit for our little one. We have always had a night light for her, but recently since we moved further out to the country, where you can actually see the stars very clearly most nights, we have been pointing out the stars to her, and she is very into the stars now. She l often points them out to us now. This little Twinkle To Go Octo shines bright with Stars and Fish, and she thinks it is just so cool that she can sleep under the stars now. What I really like about the Octo is that it has a set timer for 45 minutes, and then it turns off. No wasting batteries!  A great addition to her box. 

Rhythm Sticks from Hohner Kids- $6
I think any kid would love these Rhythm Sticks. These sticks are great while singing songs, teaching rhythm patterns, and just to run around making noises around the house. 

BOPS from Good Boy Organics- $3
This is a yummy baked treat for both parents and little one. What I like about this chip is that it contained less fat, gluten free, free of trans fat and preservatives, and they are baked. They tasted very good. You can tell they were not a normal potato chip, since they were not greasy at all, but they were very tasty.

Ladybug Magazine and Digitial Subscription- $8
I had never really taken a look at this magazine before. We subscribe to Zoobooks, and really like that magazine, but after looking through Ladybug Magazine I really like this one too.  The magazine contains great stories to share at bedtime or to read whenever, and all with some great illustrations. I cannot wait to download this on to the I-Pad to share with our little one as well. She has been asking to read at bedtime a lot lately, and it will be great to have new stories for her all the time, and that keep her actually interested and engaged. 


Overall, we were very happy with our Citrus Lane box this month. I think that the mix of playtime and bedtime items was perfect. The playtime toys will keep our little one busy and entertained, and the night time toys will definitely help out with bedtime. It is great we got bedtime items this month since bedtime is not our little ones favorite part of the day.  With the Twinkle Octo and the stories, hopefully bedtime with be easier. Our Citrus Lane box was a courtesy box, but would normally cost $25 per month. The contents of our box this month included around $35 worth of products. So while, I have seen some other Citrus Lane boxes that wowed me a little more than this one, this was definitely was still a great box and was worth the subscription cost.  Since I have seen so many other boxes out there that I love, I really think I may renew my Citrus Lane subscription, especially right now with all the great deals.

Promo Code

Right now you can get $10 off your first box using Promo Code CLBLOGGER at checkout. Another great promotion to use to get your first Citrus Lane Box!

Until next time…

Jewelry for the Holiday Season- Your Bijoux Box Review and December Spoiler

I really am a big fan of jewelry! When Your Bijoux Box kindly offered to send me their November Box to review, I could not be more excited. And I loved the November’s Your Bijoux Box’s jewelry pieces. And stay tuned for a December Spolier!

What is Your Bijoux Box?
Your Bijoux Box will arrive at your doorstep containing 2-3 pieces of jewelry. The jewelry selection is on-trend, versatile and wearable, and each box will contain at least $70 worth of jewelry each month. Each box has been hand curated by the Founders, and will be a great surprise every month!

Cost: $35 per month

November Your Bijoux Box

This month’s pieces were exactly what I look for in jewelry. First of all  I love gold toned jewelry, and second I love statement pieces like these.

Crystal Sunburst Collar

Can we say beautiful? I love that this will work perfect for my winter wardrobe, and perfect length to hang above the necklines of my sweaters. The gold chain and crystal accent is just lovely.  I know that this necklace will be quickly making its way into my jewelry rotation!

Iced Tortoise Bracelet
I love the gold bracelet, of course! Gold is my favorite, but this bracelet is just so different than anything I currently own.  The brown and black accents just go perfectly together, and will match pretty much anything in my closet!

December Spoiler

Each December Your Bijoux Box will include this Pave Links Bracelet ($78 Value) as one of the jewelry items. This bracelet is one of my all time favorites!


Your Bijoux Box just makes me smile. When I see those cute little velvet bags, and open them to see a shiny and lovely piece of jewelry I feel like a kid at Christmas! I cannot rave enough on how much I love each and every one of these jewelry pieces, and best of all they are perfect for the holiday season. And for the monthly cost of only $35! I also love, love, love the December Pave Links Bracelet. I have already worn it a couple of times and have gotten loads of positive feedback. Your Bijoux Box would be a perfect gift box for anyone in your life that you know would love some nice jewelry to add to their collection! I cannot wait to see more from Your Bijoux Box!

Bestowed Box Review and Promo Code

I was super excited to get the opportunity to try out another month of the Bestowed Box. This box is perfect for anyone who is trying to stay healthy and keep a nice and healthy diet.  I had got the chance to try out my first Bestowed Box a couple months ago, so I was really excited to see this bright orange box in the mail again this month.

What is Bestowed Box?

A  Premium Subscription that brings an assortment of healthy and delicious food, snacks, and beverages right to your door each month. These foods are just not selected by anyone but by celebrity nutritionist and author Heather Bauer. And every Bestowed box is not only filled with healthy treats, but also is loaded with insider tips, recipes and a whole lot more. Cost each month is $19.

Bestowed November Box

Wild Garden Hummus Dip
This is a perfect little snack for any time of the day. Hummus is full of great proteins, as well as being gluten-free, low-fat, and lower calorie. Whether you are on-the-go or planning a big holiday party this Wild Garden Hummus Dip would be perfect. I  really like hummus, especially with some carrots or cucumbers. However, it is also very good with Multi-Grain Crackers. I really love the Bestowed box even added in a great little recipe called Hummus Dip Chicken Breast.  Hummus and Chicken Breast, yummy. I will have to try it out for the holidays for sure.

Crunchmaster Multi-Seed Cracker
I already have these in my house, and my family thinks these are such a yummy treat. They are great substitute for a salty greasy potato chip. 

Eat Green Tea
I really do like green tea. A even drinks it every morning. Before I ever heard of Eat Green Tea,  I never thought that you could eat it, but you can. I think the best way to use Eat Green Tea is in a really well mixed smoothie, with some bananas and strawberries.  Bestowed box suggests sprinkling it on a salad.  I  think that would be good, I may have to try it out.

Life Ice-Chocolate Crisp
Just like a Popsicle, these are great GMO free proportioned icee treats.  Each tray is only 30 calories, and another great way to  tame a sweet tooth.

Nektar Honey Crystals
This is a great substitute for sugar, and all natural.  And instead of having a gooey bottle of honey, these little crystal packets are honey, but in a non-messy, easier way to use packet.

Perfect Fuel Chocolate
I have always been under the impression that eating chocolate would just give you a sugar rush, and then you would crash. Well, this cocao has been combined with ginseng to pack a punch, and perfect to give you that endurance that you need  before a workout or during those afternoon lulls that make you feel like you want to take a nap. And all with the yummy taste of chocolate!

Quest Bar Chocolate Bar Peanut Butter
This little bar packs quite a punch, and it is pretty tasty as well as being good for me. I have not found very many energy bars or protein bars that I was very impressed with. This little bar is full of 20 grams of protein and 17 grams of fiber. I am always looking for something that will give me more fiber. Most Americans do not get nearly the amount of protein they need daily, that is including me.

Salba Smart Chia Boost
I have received Chia before, but never this kind. Chia was a little weird to me before I learned more about it, but i definitely seems to be healthy. These powerful seeds, yes, they are seeds are full of power, and are perfect to add to a salad or smoothie. I always am looking for energy, so anything that helps, especially natural. is great!

Skratch Labs Exercise Hydration Mix
I love that this is actually made of freeze-dried fruit. The only bad thing about this one is that it is not sugar free, but it is made to replace electrolytes, and help the body maintain blood glucose. This obviously is great for an after workout drink. I think I will save this for A.

ZICO Chocolate Coconut Water
I know Coconut water is good for you, but I just do not really like it all alone. However, this is a perfect liquid to add to a protein shake, and gives way more flavor than just water, We do not drink milk, so we are always up for suggestions when it comes to something else to add to protein shakes.

I really enjoyed this box, as our family is always trying to find healthy good foods to eat and keep around the house. Not only for me, but for the little one as well. I appreciate that the Bestowed Box helps the process of trying to find these healthy treats and snacks, and makes it less of a grueling task for me. And everything that was included in this November Bestowed Box was something one of my family members or myself would like. It is great to try something out first before you buy a full size version as well.  Best of all all these great treats/goodies in the November Bestowed Box only cost $19 per month. A great deal.

Until the end of the month you can get $10 off your first Bestowed box using Promo Code "HELLOTEN105". That is such a great savings! Do not miss out, offer ends at the end of the month!

Love with Food Review and Promo and Special Offer

I took a little break from Love with Food box for a little bit,  not because I did not like it, but only because I cannot get every box,  so I took a little break from this one. Recently, I was given the opportunity to try out the Love with Food box again, and now I remember why I like this box so much.  I initially thought  that I was going to be receiving the most recent Love with Food, but the box was actually the October's box. A little late, but still a great box. Stayed tuned at the end of the post for a great Promotion and discount for Love with Food.

What is Love with Food?
Love with food is a monthly subscription box that allows you to sample gourmet food, and best of all it is delivered each month to your front door. The cost is $10 per month, but stay tuned at the end of this blog for a special promo code!

Love with Food Box

Chocolate Pizzelle Crips from Silk City Snacks 

These are a perfect low calorie snack for someone with a sweet tooth, but is watching what they are eating.  The bag is only 100 calories.  These little waffle crisps are going into the little ones snack drawer.

Kind Bar from Kind Snacks 

I have gotten several Kind Snack Bars in boxes before, and they are very good. These are perfect for an on-the-go healthy snack.

Glee Gum, Triple Berry from Verve Ice 

Glee Gum is very tasty, and I have tried this before, but I didn’t read much about it before now.  Glee Gum actually uses brown rice and cane sugar to create a great gum.

New World Caveman Cookies by Caveman Bakery
These were very yummy, and pretty healthy as well.

Organic Hard Candies from Torie & Howard
These little yummy treats have been in a couple of my boxes, and they are quite tasty. These little treats are made with organic all natural fruit flavors. They are a great little treat to help with the sweet tooth.

Pixo Pearls from Vinaigerie Gingras

To be honest I am not 100% sure what these are, but it looks like it is to add some extra flavor to your food. Maybe a salad?

Happy Squeeze from Happy Family
I am sure that the little one will love this. I am super cautious about squeeze pouches now a days, since I heard some pretty disturbing news about another brand and bugs. But, I haven’t heard any news about the Happy Family brand.

Toasted Coconut Chips from Dang

This are the perfect little snack. I have had these before, and I was super excited to see them in this box. I let my parents try these out and they were a big hit.


I have always been a big fan of the Love with  Food Box, and I  know that I will always have a little foodie adventure when this red box arrives. Now that I got the chance to try this box out again, I may have to re-subscribe. For only $    per month, I think it is a very affordable subscription, and you get your monies worth  of yummy and new treats for you and your family (if you want to share that is).

 You can get $5 off a Love with Food subscription (it is valid till 12/1) using Promo Code “FESTIVE2013”! 

Also for every 6- and 12- month subscriptions purchased from now till 12/1,  Love with Food will be adding on a bonus 2-year subscription to Rachel Ray magazines! This promotion is also valid if current subscribers switch their plan to 6 or 12 month plans.
