Out with the old, In with the new- Toothbrush Subscriptions Review

I do not know if you are like me, but I forget  when the last time was that I replaced my toothbrush.  I know you are supposed to replace your toothbrush here and there, but I am not sure how many months, and when I replaced it last.  Or I just think to myself that the one I have will last a little longer.  Well, my old toothbrush problem has been solved thanks to Toothbrush Subscriptions.

What is Toothbrush Subscriptions?
“You will never forget to change your toothbrush again.” Toothbrush subscriptions takes the hassle out and remembering out of picking up a replacement toothbrush, by sending it directly to your door. You can pick how often you need a new toothbrush every 1, 2 or 3 months, and what kind of toothbrush you need. Toothbrush Subscriptions has adult toothbrushes, toddler toothbrushes, teen toothbrushes, Newborn, and the other added dental needs, like dental floss.  

Cost: $5-3  per toothbrush/dental accessory

American Dental Association Approved Advantage Toothbrush  $5

I am by no means an expert on toothbrushes, but I really was impressed with this toothbrush. Nice soft brush- check, grip handle-check, and Approved by Dental Association-check. A and I are excited to replace our toothbrushes with new ones now! 

The Baby Toothbrush $3

This is perfect for those toddlers in the house 2-5, so this was the perfect toothbrush pick for our little one, who is 3.  I like that this toothbrush is just the right size, and has extra soft brush.

Dental Floss $3 

45 M of minty freshness in the form of dental floss, sounds great for me. I am notorious for not flossing, and I know that is horrible (shame on me), but if I have it coming to my door each month it would motivate me more. If I forget to buy new toothbrushes, more than likely I forgot the dental floss too, Opps!


Overall I really think that Toothbrush Subscriptions is such a brilliant idea. I do not know if I am the odd one out here, but I really had such memory lapses when it came to buying new toothbrushes. I would always think about it while I was brushing my teeth, but then the thought would just vanish. Poof! With Toothbrush Subscriptions, they can do the job for me! Very convenient! Additionally, the price is on target with normal toothbrushes, the quality is great, and the convenience is stellar. I am sold 100% on Toothbrush Subscriptions.

Fab Kids Malibu Dreams Collection Selection Review

I was so excited to see all the cute clothing in the latest collection, Malibu Dreams, from Fab Kids. And when Fab Kids graciously offered to send me an outfit to review on the blog, I was even more excited. I could hardly wait to see the outfit pick we made from the new collection. You would think the clothing was for me rather than our little one. I am sure I was more excited about the clothing; she was more excited about just opening the package.

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,  and now boys, 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 two pieces now (used to be three, but the third item was usually just a headband or hair accessory), and the cost used to be $39.95, but is now $29.95. You are not obligated to pick a set each month, and can skip if you choose as well. Right now new members get their first outfit for $15, plus free shipping!

Fab Kids
Malibu Dreams

I have to say, this was one of my favorite collections from Fab Kids thus far. I just loved the palm tree prints and the bright spring colors. If you would like to take a look at some of the other outfits, you can HERE.

My Pick- Cali Chic Outfit
What I liked most about this outfit is that it would work perfect for other seasons, and would work very well mix matching with different tops or bottoms. I also love the pattern on both the skirt and the shirt.  I know I say this a lot with Fab Kids outfits, but if it came in my size I would so buy it for myself!

Stripped Ruffle Top $18 Retail

I just love ruffle tops during the summer time, it adds that extra girly flair to an otherwise dull tank top. By no means is this tank top dull, and not only will look cute with the palm tree skirt, but also would look great with most other bottoms we have for our little one; Very versatile! My favorite part of this top, other than the ruffle, is that the zipper in the back is a mint green, which just adds that extra touch of fun to the tank top.

Palm Tree Skater Skirt $26 Retail
When I first saw the Malibu Dreams Collection, I knew I had to pick something with this cute palm tree print. After actually getting this skirt, it is even cuter in person. And again, if you add some leggings with this skirt and a long sleeve shirt it will be perfect for colder weather as well.  And, like all Fab Kids clothing I have ever received, this skirt was made of great fabric and quality made.


I have not yet received an outfit from Fab Kids that has not impressed me. I have many outfits from Fab Kids now, and they have been through the wash several times, and each piece still withstands the wear and tear, ending up still looking awesome. Not only is the clothing fantastic, but the price is equally as fantastic. For the cost of $29.99, I received a great quality and stylish outfit worth $44.  Not to mention the convienance of not having to wonder around shopping malls, etc, for clothing, rather these great clothes are delivered right to my door each month.  Like always, I cannot wait to see what Fab Kids comes out with next!

What did you think of the Malibu Dreams collection from Fab Kids? If you are interested in learning more about Fab Kids or signing up, you can HERE.  Don’t forget new members get their first outfit for $15.

Until next time

March "It's All About the Lips" Lip Factory Review

It is that time of the month again; Lip Factory time! I get so excited each month when I see the shipping notification, and cannot wait to dig into the box.  Like every month, Lip Factory is one of my favorites, and I am always surprised at the amazing products included in each and every Lip Factory box. Lip Factory never ceases to amaze me on how fantastic each box is.

What is Lip Factory?
Lip Factory is a beauty subscription that curates fantastic beauty boxes, with great beauty/makeup for you to explore and try out. Lip Factory prides itself of sending out new brands and new colors to their subscribers. And most of the products included in the Lip Factory boxes are FULL SIZE!

Cost: $22.00  per month

March Lip Factory
“It’s All About the Lips” Box
I know this might not make sense to everyone reading, but as soon as I read “It’s All About the Lips”, I thought of one of my favorite players from the Seattle Seahawks, Marshawn Lynch. One of his sayings is “It’s All About that Action Boss”! So when I read “It’s All About the Lips”, I had to add Boss at the end. A little chuckle from me! Haha. Well, anyways, I am sure you want to see all the great lip products in March Lip Factory Box. Lip Factory has an All About Lips box here and there, but Lip Factory’s other boxes are full of all kinds of great makeup products, not just lip products.

Mirenesse Lip Bomb #3  $35
I have tried other Mirenesse products, and I have been very pleased with them, so I was I was excited to try out something new. This is a unlike a gloss, lipstick or stain, but leaves the lips with great color and gloss without that gunky feel.  This is great on it’s own or on top of a different shade to add an extra kick.

Ellovi $5
This lip butter is completely natural and is made of only six ingredients that are so pure you can eat them. A great lip butter is hard to come by, but this Ellovi is amazing. I cannot believe I had not found this before now.

Jesse’s Girl Vitamin E Treatment $3
There are plenty of days when I do not wear any lipstick at all, so this will be perfect for those days. I can still keep my lips protected, soft and supple.

Jesse’s Girl Lip Liner in Melon $2
I really do not use liner too often, but really like the look it gives my lips when I do. This Melon color is a great summer lip liner to mix with some coral lipstick.

Cargo Cosmetics Lip Quad $24
I was super excited to hear that Lip Factory was collaborating with Cargo, as I really like Cargo Cosmetics. I was never expecting something so fantastic as this lip gloss guad though. Awesome addition to the March Lip Factory box. I love this Lip Quad, which is full of great summer lip colors, and know I will be using it all the time!

Can we say fantastic Lip Factory box this month? Yes, we can! I really love trying out new products and brands of makeup, and Lip Factory makes it possible and even easier to do so each month by delivering these great products right to my door. For $22 a month for the Lip Factory subscription, the March Lip Factory “All About the Lips” box included approximately $69 worth of products. I would say that Lip Factory certainly knows how to treat their subscribers. I continue to look forward to each and every Lip Factory box that I receive, and cannot wait to see next month’s box already.

Tickled Pink Toggery- 1st Edition

I am going to be adding a new feature to my blog called Tickled Pink Toggery. You are probably wondering what the heck is toggery? Well here is the definition.

tog·ger·y  (tŏg′ə-rē, tôgə-)
n. pl. tog·ger·ies
1. Clothing

I wanted to do something fun to share my passion of fashion and clothing, and share what my wardrobe is looking like lately. I also would love feedback and comments from readers on what they think, and anything else that you would like to share with me. What are you wearing lately.

One thing about me when I go out and get new clothing is that the pieces always have to be 1) versatile for work or casual; and 2)hopefully well priced. This outfit and each piece covered this criteria perfect, and it was super comfy.

The dress is a paisley button-down dress from Forever 21 for only $12.80. This dress is super light and a great summer dress all on it’s own. Additionally, it is a great piece to layer up for fall or even winter wear. I paired this dress up with a black cardigan from Old Navy, some black tights, and some chestnut color boots from Just Fab, and I think I got myself a great fall outfit. Add in some nice gold jewelry and a thin black belt, and it added just that tad of extra dressiness I needed for work.

Until next time

Made in Utah- New Subscription Merco Box Review

Today I am bringing you a new box that I have recently come across. This box is another locality box, but different than any other locality boxes I have received. Merco Box, is a brand-new subscription that comes from Utah. This box brings, to  your door, specialty items from around Utah that help support the community, and local mom-and-pop shops. For each Merco Box that you get your dollars go right back to the community of Utah. I have never been to Utah, but from what I see they have some amazing shops and stores that I would love to shop at in person. However, since a trip to Utah is not in my future I am happy for Merco Box.

What is Merco Box?
Merco Box takes Utah's finest local products, from lifestyle, beauty, to food,and packages them in their awesome monthly subscription box and deliver them right to your front door!

Cost: $24.99

March Merco Box

Heavenly Hygienics Cherub Balm Lotion Bar $3.99
It seems that I have an abundance of lotion bars these day. I really think lotion bars are becoming more popular. I really do think lotion bars are great, but for me they are not very practical. I'm usually on the go and do not really have a place to put a lotion bar. However, I think this will be great to leave in the bathroom for our little one.

Razieh’s Wrinkle Free Obsession Cream $4
Well, anything that helps me prevent wrinkles is great in my book. This wrinkle cream will definitely get used. I have never heard of Razieh’s Wrinkle Free Obsession Cream, but I'm very excited to give it a try.

Sea Grape Bath and Body Relaxed Mama Tea $6.50
I usually I am a so-so tea drinker. To be honest I would rather have a big cup of coffee and cream or a latte. And right now I actually I'm not really drinking tea too much as well. However, I know that I eventually get a tea craving, so I'm sure that this will get used in the future. And, anything that gets me relax at the end of the day is fantastic.

Edible Wilds Wildflower Brownie Mix $6.99
This was fantastically delicious. This mix is also gluten-free which is great. No one in my household is gluten-free, but I'm always looking for new gluten-free recipes that I can pass along. I made this the other night, and it was delicious! Some brownies mixes are kind of dry and not so chocolaty, but this mix was not any of those, it was moist and very chocolaty. I think it was a hit at my house.

Figaro Salon Stylist Gift Card and Key Chain from Merco Box $15
After checking out this salon online, it looks like a great salon. If in fact Figaro’s was near me I would probably jump on this offer.

Purse Dreams Gift Card $25

What girl doesn't like a new purse. I looked on the website and they look to have great selections at Purse Dreams. A little pricer than I am used to though. However, I still will be taking advantage of this fantastic gift card that was received and this month’s Merco box. I will have to do another post later to show what I received.

Q Clothing Boutique Scarf $28

This has to be my favorite item in this whole box. I am a big fan of infinity scarves, and especially light scarfs as they fit well for winter as well as moving into spring and even summer. I recently received a peach Aztec scarf that looked just like this so I was excited to see that my box contained a mint teal color infinity Aztecs scarf from Q Clothing Boutique. I definitely will be getting my use out of the scarf and think it was a wonderful addition to the Merco Box.

Merco Box also included a bunch of great coupons in the box, which valued $50 plus. They are pictured above with the Purse Dreams Gift Card. Some of these coupons I cannot use, but would love to if I was in the Utah area.

My overall impression was, YES!, this box is awesome. I really just love everything that I received in this March Merco Box! I am a huge fan of boxes that include an array of products from beauty to food, so this was perfect for me. And, to top it off it is a locality box! Double bonus! And you all know I love my locality boxes as well! The total cost of this box would have been $24.99, but Merco Box had a special deal for the March Box, so I only got it for the shipping cost! Excellent, right? And the March Merco Box included approximately $89 plus, not included the Extra gift cards. I probably will not use the $15 gift card to the salon, but my first Merco Box was worth every penny. I look forward to seeing more from Merco Box as the months go by.

Need some sparkle? Cate & Chloe VIP Subscription Review

Tonight I am going to share with my love for jewelry. You should really see my collection of necklaces and all other pieces of jewelry. There is not one day I go without jewelry of some sort. So, you can imagine my excitement when I found the Cate and Chloe VIP Subscription. When Cate and Chloe graciously offered to send me their new VIP Subscription box to review for my readers on Tickled Pink in the Rain, well, I was super excited. And, now I cannot wait to share with you this jewelry subscription.

What is Cate & Chloe VIP Membership?

Each piece of jewelry from the Cate & Chloe collection is inspired by their favorite designers, and each piece is made to add elegant pieces  of jewelry to any women's jewelry collection.

Cate & Chloe VIP Membership 
Welcome Package
I immediately was impressed with Cate & Chloe, just by their packaging. It was delivered via USPS, and inside was this nice box with a pretty bow. Yes, a bow. I felt like I was getting a present, and it wasn't even my birthday, haha. After opening, the inside of the package was nicely packaged as well. I appreciate when a company pays attention to the presentation of their subscription. I think it is a good indication that a company really cares, and cares about their customers/subscribers. A great first impression.

Layla "Beauty" 
Pendant Necklace
"Get ready to be noticed! This timeless, beautiful pendant will certainly make you stand out from the crowd!"

This is so feminine and dainty, I really love it. I am a fan of gold, but I also like silver, especially when there is an extra sparkle like this necklace has. I also love that this necklace, while great for a special occasion, is also great to wear with casual wear to make the outfit just a little more elegant and sophisticated. I really think this necklace is very beautiful, and most definitely will get my wear out of it.


My overall impression of Cate & Chloe VIP Subscription is an A++. Not only do I think that it is well priced for the quality and style of the jewelry received, but I also really am impressed with the delivery, presentation and attention to detail that this subscription brings to the table. Cate & Chloe VIP Membership makes a lady feel special by sending a monthly beautiful surprise to her doorstep. What lady does not want to feel special, and be treated with a special something? And, all while not breaking the bank. I really think that Cate & Chloe would also be perfect for birthday presents or a special occasion for friends as well. I look forward to seeing more from Cate &Chloe VIP Subscription.

Until next time…

An Adventure in the Southeast- Box South Sample Box Review

There is just something about locality boxes that I just love. Locality boxes allow you to experience a new place that you otherwise would not get to visit, right from the comfort of your own home. A new locality based subscription, Box South, is such a fun locality box.  Box South brings you great Southern artisan goodies to your doorstep each month. I am super excited to share with you this sample box from Box South.

What is Box South?
Well first off, I have to tell you they definitely sound like they will bring that southern hospitality into each box. I have been nothing but super impressed with my contact with the company so far.  Each month Box South will send a box that focus on sending out to their subscribers the best small-batch artisan food and products made throughout the Southeast.

Box South Options/ Cost:

Monthly Box South Subscription - $52 per month

Box South also offers the following ( these are not monthly subscriptions):

Full Gift Box full of 5-8 products  for $52
Mini Box with around 3 products for $35 

Box South Sample Box
I was so excited with Box South graciously offered to send me a sample box. The sample box is just taste of what wonderful items their subscription will include.

Copper Pot Wooden Spoon Spiced Apple and Beer Jam  $11.50
This is a great little treat from Waynesville, North Carolina. This is a sweet and savory blend of flavors that is said to go perfectly  with smoked meats and sharp cheeses. I tried a little bit on a cracker, and it was delicious. I am not a big buyer of jams of preserves, especially savory kinds, but by no means does that mean that I do not enjoy them when I get to taste them. When I think about North Carolina I think of good BBQ food, so it is nice change of pace to get something not specific to BBQ. 

Oliver Pluff & Company Colonial Bohea Tea $14
I have been to Charleston, South Carolina before, where this tea comes from, and this Colonial Tea reminds me perfectly of Charleston. I am not really drinking tea too much these days, but this tea is just up my alley. Bohea Tea, pronounced "Boo-Hee" is a Black tea blend, and was very popular during Colonial Amercia. A great addition to any Box South box. 

The Chocolate Lab Perc and Goat Milk Candy Bar
$8 each

All I can say is these are divine. Wow. The Chocolate Lab has take candy bar to a whole other level. This decedent treats come from Savannah, Georgia, and will cure any sweet tooth they come in contact with. I put these out as a treat one night after dinner, and they were gone right away. You can tell that these chocolate bars are made with love, and not only does their taste show it, but so does the packaging. Yummy!

Perc Coffee Kimel Estate AA $14

Bringing us to Savannah, Georgia again, Box South, included a great bold coffee. As you can tell Perc Coffee is also included in The Chocolate Lab's candy bar. I love when local companies come together for a collaboration. Kimel Estate AA is sourced from Papua New Guinea, but I am guessing is roasted in Savannah at Perc Coffee. I am not drinking coffee at this time, so I cannot tell you how lovely it tastes, but the smell is just wonderful. I love the smell of roasted coffee beans. I am sure my parents will be able to get use out of this Perc Coffee.  

My overall taste of Box South is fantastic. If this is just sample of what is to come from Box South than I know the subscribers of Box South can expect some amazing items coming out of each monthly subscription box.  Although this is a not a regular subscription box, only a sampling of what could be included in boxes to come, the total value of the items included this this box is  $57.50. I think that is a great value, especially because if you bought everything from the stores on their own online you would have to pay shipping as well as tax. And if you were to go visit these places on your own, well I am sure it would be way more.  I cannot wait to see what is in store for Box South, and what their first official box will include. Sign up now and you can get your first box next month between the 10th- 15th.
