California Found- August

California Found

1This box just keeps getting better and better! Every time it arrives on my door step I squeal with delight!

You ever have those items that you want to buy for yourself? But the little nagging person at the back of your brain says that you shouldn’t?

This box has all of the things that you could possible want and it’s at at amazing price of $49!

Let’s dive in!

2

I know that when I have guests in the house I go that EXTRA mile to make sure that there are clean towels, clean sheets, and that the room is vacuumed!

These moisturizing candy scrubs by Bon Blissity is something that is magic!

They look like little wrapped candies that you unwrap! You put them under the water and scrub your hands with it! It exfoliates, cleanses, and moisturizes all at once! This is such a treat for you and your guests!

One item that I also wish I bought but never seem to have on hand it a greeting card! Sometimes your friends and family just need an uplifting message. Something that always brings a smile to my face is when I get snail mail! I love knowing that someone took the time out to think of me and send a note. These are perfect for this!

5Now I love WATER! A lot. I drink anywhere from 60-80 ounces of water a day. However, sometimes you want a little flavor with your water but you don’t want to make it too sweet of tea, you just need a little flavor.

These Ready-Made Water Infusers are the perfect remedy for this! I have tried the Lemon & Mint and fell in love with it. I can’t wait to try out the Watermelon & Rosemary!

 

6This is probably my most favorite item in the box! The simplicity of Kalcie’s bracelets are enough to take your breath away.

I’m not going to fib, I am not a person who normally wears gold, but this bracelet was too beautiful to pass up! I actually wore it for a week straight without taking it off and I love it!

I am going to be checking out her site and getting more!

 

7There is nothing better than getting an amazing smelling candle in a box. This is something that I love in subscription boxes.

A candle can change the whole entire feel of a room. Your sense of smell can change your mood, bring memories to the forefront, and they lift your spirit.

This candle did just that. It made my mother-in-law smile when she walked into the room!

 

The California Found box is the perfect escape to the ocean and relaxation, to perpetual summer! I loved getting this box and can’t wait to see what next month has in store!

BoHo Babe- September

BOHO Babe (1)

1This is one of my most favorite boxes to receive every month! They also seem to have the right mindset that I am in and the different items I might need to help erase the stress from my life!

They have many different types of items that they send every month and I fall more in love with box!

If you are interested in natural remedies, connecting with your inner self, and trying new age things, this is the box for you! Let’s dive in!

2

If you all follow me on my Youtube channel or on my Instagram then you know how much I adore yoga!

This amazing yoga towel is something that I will be using every day! It is the perfect size to put under or over your mat, fold up under your hear, and to wipe off some of that glow after a great workout!

 

 

3Like last month BoHo Babe is featuring a small business! I love this aspect of the company and the cost-savings this helps us customers with!

I can’t wait to book my appointment with Carina and learn a little bit more about myself.

I am tough on myself sometimes and I think this came at just the right time to help my stress and anxiety out!

 

4

I have been using this EVERY SINGLE NIGHT SINCE I GOT THIS!!! This is the softest, most comfortable sleeping mask that I have ever had the pleasure of wearing.

I love the design of the fabric and the colors. I put this on at night and I don’t even feel like I am wearing anything on my face.

 

5Another item that has been added to my night time routine is this amazing pillow mist called Zzsleepy Zen. It has wonderful essential oils and the moment I spray it on my pillow I feel an instant ease fall all throughout my body.

I even spray a little bit of the mist the sleeping mask they sent and I am off to dreamland within minutes!

 

 

IMG_2435This box this month is practically how to relax before heading to bed! This Lotus Goddess Green tea is the perfect relaxation tea right before heading to rest.

I love the aroma of the tea! It smells so tranquil and calming with the lavender and the jasmine.

I highly recommend this tea!

 

7

Before you fall asleep why not put on a Zen Goddess Facial Mask!?!

Clean those pours out after you have a wonderfully freeing workout, put the mask on, get out your new favorite book, listen to some nature music, and let the mask work its magic!

 

 
8Feeling a little stressed throughout the day?

That’s okay! Wrap this gorgeous leather diffuser around your wrist and drip some of your favorite essential oils like lavender, peppermint, or Peace & Calm.

You’ll smell the oils throughout the day and it will fill you with an amazing sense of calm and relaxation!

 

 

End

This has to be one of my most favorite boxes that I have received all year. I have used and will use every single item in this box. I have loved going through, trying the products, and letting others in my family know how amazing they are!

Last floating trip on the river, time spent with family and friends, and of course, amazing snacks and items to try! This is a Part 2 of a 2 Part review on the My Little Life box! This is a seasonal box for the United States and monthly for Canada. It has all different elements throughout to use for every aspect of your life.

Want to see my video unboxing?

1

You ever have those nights when you just can’t seem to shut your brain off? You toss and turn? You’re afraid of waking up the entire house? But you just can’t seem to fall asleep?

I’ve had quite a few sleepless night since the beginning of the school year, I’m a teacher. These sleeping supplements sure did help!

They are all natural and they aren’t something that you will have severe side effects from!

2There are tons of flash hypes about different and new products, but sometimes, even though I want to try them, I don’t want to or don’t think about grabbing them when I am at the store.

Something that I have been wanting to try is Charcoal toothpaste! It is supposed to be better for your teeth and help whiten them!

I was so tickled to see that not only did they send this tasty toothpaste but they also sent this bamboo toothbrush!

3This box just keeps on giving! I love how much stuff they pack into one box!

They make pampering yourself so easy! Especially with this bath tea and this amazing goat soap!

There is something so relaxing about pouring a Tea Bath into your hot running water. Soaking in the amazing aroma and then cleaning yourself off with luscious soap!

 

4

SOOOOO you might see that the Cashews have already been eaten before I was able to take a picture of them! Ha!

These were probably the most delicious snack I have had in a really long time. They were perfect! I loved the salty and sweetness!

Plus the ethical bean coffee! This is just the perfect morning!

 

5Adding to the wonderful self-spa day is this wonderful and relaxing Starboard Alchemy face mask!

There is nothing like putting a mask on your face, laying down, and reading a couple of chapters!

Knowing that you are taking care of your skin AND getting in some You-Time is a great way to start the day!

 

 

Making sure to take care of your skin is something that everyone should be concerned about! This is most important for your face! The Little Life box agrees and in the Summer box sent out an organic sun block and a facial oil that will help keep your face protected and moisturized!

8

And last, but certainly not least are these amazing samples of Facto Body Butter and the Earth’s Care Acne Spot Treatment.

I have been using the Fatco in the morning and this little sample was able to be used for my body three times! A little goes A LONG WAY!

We also have an Organic Traditions Ashwaganda Root Powder it is supposed to have great power with stress and anxiety.  It has also been traditionally used to promote a calm mind and encourage restful sleep.

Thank you so much for stopping by and reading Part 2 of my review for My Little Life Box! The seasonal box is $25 a season or you can get the deluxe box with $45! This has so many items that you will be sure to fall in love with a new products!

You’ll receive 8-12 healthy items (snacks, skincare & lifestyle items) and a mix of samples and full-size products in every box. The box is valued at $35-$70 including shipping.

Until next time, Happy Unboxings!

My Little Life Box- Winter 2017

Good morning everyone! I hope everyone had a wonderfully restful Labor Day weekend! I know I did! Last floating trip on the river, time spent with family and friends, and of course, amazing snacks and items to try! This is a Part 1 of a 2 Part review on the My Little Life box! This is a seasonal box for the United States and monthly for Canada. It has all different elements throughout to use for every aspect of your life. This blog review will go over their Winter box for 2017.

Want to see my video unboxing?

IMG_2256One of the first items that I saw in the bag were the Asparagus Chips by Vegan Rob’s. They are ruffled super grain chips that are Gluten-Free, Non GMO, Kosher, Vegan Friendly, AND they taste great!

Sometimes you just want an nice crunchy and semi-salty treat, but you don’t want to calories or the heaviness of a regular bag of chips.

These give you the taste that you’re looking for without the guilty!

 

IMG_2257What else could be better but another healthy snack?! I love how many snacks this box came with!

I have been hankering for some dried fruits lately! It gives that little bit of sweetness without having to give in to that Snickers bar!

There are no additives, no preservatives, and no added sweeteners!

 

 

IMG_2258

Other items that are SO much fun to get make up products in boxes! I love trying new and HEALTHY make up products.

This primer is 100% vegan and I love how smooth it is on my face. It was able to keep my foundation in place the whole day.

This lip liner is a beautiful shade of mauve. It would compliment ANY skin color and it glides on smoothly!

 

IMG_2259

You know, sometimes you just need a pamper day! This is one of the most funnest items in this box!

This has gloves and socks with nail strengthening and skin nourishing cream!

It was so much fun to put these on my feet and hands for 20 minutes and then give myself a mani and pedi! My skin and nails felt and looked great afterwards!

IMG_2260

This was something that was very unique to receive in a box! Waffle mix!

It looks absolutely delicious! I am hoping that this coming weekend I will be able to make these for breakfast with juice, coffee, and some fruit on the side!

This is just the right size for two people and it is a perfect taste test before buying a whole box.

 

 

SomeIMG_2261times our lives become so busy that we aren’t able to plan out when to take our vitamins or make a good meal!

I know working 10-12 hour days can be difficult, but I loved having these on hand for a quick fix for my hangry-ness and that little boost that our daily vitamins are supposed to give us.

These are a good option for those days that we are in a hurry.

 

IMG_2262You all know my love for tea! This company has just reached its awesomeness level for me!

This aromatic blend of young hyson green tea, peppermint, lime, and pomegranate will bring back memories of lounging on a beach, or maybe whatever memories you have left of college. Either way, their Pomegranate Mojito Green Tea & Blue Lady Tea is an amazingly refreshing blend, great for any time of day.

IMG_2263

 

To top off this already amazing box are these awesome treats! There are those days that you miss the snacks of your childhood, but you might not miss the calories, the preservatives, or the amount of the snacks.

These are perfect for those days that you are nostalgic for some cookies and even fruit strips! Great to throw in your purse!

Review| My Ireland Box

Beginning

One of the most beautiful places that I have ever been is Ireland. I have family in Ireland, which isn’t too shocking since my last name is McFarland, eh? When I was reached out to by them amazing people at AYOB about reviewing this particular box I was extremely excited. I felt as though the week I spent in Ireland wasn’t enough! I needed to learn more about the country that my ancestors came from! And learn I did!

From their site:

“Every month, a themed MyIrelandBox delivers to the USA, Canada and Australia, the best in Irish Design, Accessories, Home, Natural Beauty, Irish Music, Jewelry, Apparel, Irish culture & tradition galore from Ireland, to your doorstep. MyIrelandBoxes include full-sized Irish made surprises that are expertly curated by Katharine & her team from Dingle Co. Kerry Ireland, in the heart of Irish tradition and culture.” $45 per box + $10.50 Shipping

BookIn this month’s box we were following the history of The Blasket Islands! They are indeed magical!

The book we received is Fiche Bliain as Fas or Twenty Years A-Growing. It was written originally in the Gaelic Irish language in 1953.

This book is full of stories from Maurice O’Sullivan that he heard while growing up, proverbs, folk-tales, and the story of his life!
DirtSomething else that I loved about this box was the Real Irish Turf that I was sent by Bog Buddies!

This is supposed to be lit and it will create the aroma of a real turf fire! Turf was extremely important to the Islanders and they only had a seasons supply at a time to keep them warm throughout the season. They used it for heat, cooking, and for light!

It really did smell like Ireland to me! Made my heart wish I was there!

MusicOne of the MANY things that had me falling in love with Ireland was the music. We went into a couple of pubs in Dublin and I loved the live music that was playing throughout.

It felt as though it was touching my soul. Something that had me swaying and loving every moment of it!

Another thing that I loved is that they included a Tin whistle by Feadog! The Original Tin Whistle and also gave us a Youtube channel that will give Irish Tin Whistle Lessons! How thoughtful is that?!

And last but certainly not least were the pamphlets and the booklet that told us all about the Na Blascaodai or The Blaskets by Padraig Ua Maoileoin. It has a wonderful recount of the history in The Blaskets and is a calming read.

If you love Ireland or know someone who appreciates the history of the Irish. I would recommend this box!

Until next time…

XOXO

Review|Oceanista

Country Real Estate Postcard

Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a wonderful Summer! I know that I am and even more so from getting this wonderfully curated seasonal box by Oceanista. Even being landlocked here in Oklahoma I can smell the ocean and feel the cool breeze on my face from all of their lovely and charming items in the Summer box!

From the website:

The Oceanista Subscription Box

“Get ready to experience the excitement of receiving our signature box delivered to your door every season, and uncovering the hidden treasures that await you inside. You’ll be awash in whimsical beach inspired essentials from brands we love that are sure to compliment your beach lifestyle and wardrobe. Featured artisan pieces, luxury skin care products, mid-season surprises, and the chance to win a free gift every season guarantees our box will be one you look forward to again and again!”

This box is $79.99 a season, BUT if you use my code “Courtagonist” you’ll get 10% off your first box! How awesome is that?!?! Plus, the value of the box is always worth $150 or more! The summer box had a retail value of over $200 dollars! Now, lets get into the goodies, shall we?

IMG_2062 2

IMG_2060 2

One of the first items that I spotted in the Summer Box were these stunning sunglasses made by Oceanista themselves! They are made from sustainable wood, are bouyant, and UV 400 with Polarized protection.

They are so light weight and they really have the perfect shielding on them! I love the beautifully made holder for the sunglasses and the soft protective bag that makes it perfect to toss these into my purse! The retail value on these sunglasses is $69.99 almost the cost of the box!

IMG_2063 2Now, who can have a great day at the lake, beach, or by the pool without a handy tote bag!?! Not me. I need something to hold my towels, snacks, water, and a good book!

This is the perfect size for an on-the-go tote! It is a canvas beach bag created by Primitives by Kathy.  It really is a must have for the summer!

You can use it not only for taking out onto the water but you can even use it as a grocery bag as well! Love it! Retails at $30.

IMG_2064 2One of the things that I get most worried about with extended sun exposer is getting a sunburn on my face! Even with sunblock on the rays from the Sun can hurt your skin and cause damage! Ouch!

I love that they sent us this portable, easily travel, sunhat by San Diego Hat Company ! It makes it so easy to just throw in a tote and be on the go.

It has UPF 50+ protection against harmful UB rays and it is adjustable for all! Retails at $28.

IMG_2065 2

IMG_2067 2

One of my most favorite items to get in a box is jewelry! The wonderful curators at Oceanista hit the nail on the head with this stunning Jilzarah “Sundress” Gold Crescent Cuff Bracelet!

Ever since receiving this gorgeous bracelet I have been in love with all of the other jewelry on their website! Their packaging, care instructions, and love for jewelry really shows how much they care about their products!

This bracelet retails at a very affordable price of $36!

IMG_2068 2

IMG_2072One of the many things that I love about Oceanista is the fact that they feature a local artisan in every one of their boxes!

Supporting small businesses is something that is near and dear to my heart! It helps that the artist for this season’s box make me smile and relaxed just looking at her art!

I am talked about WanderLust Leather! This luggage tag just screams SUMMER! Plus they sent a coupon that allows you to contact Jamie to create a custom name tag to go with your summer one! How awesome is that!?! The retail value for this wonderful and customized gift is $28.97! You should most definitely check out her shop!

Another item, not pictured, is the wonderful Cheri Arome Beach Waves Pink Salt Hair Mist! It really does smell like summer! It gives you the PERFECT beachy hair waves! It is extremely affordable at only $12.

IMG_2071 2Last but certainly not least is a little gift just for you! A stunning and perfectly created Oceanista sticker that you can just smell the salt in the air with, a magnet for your fridge, and a wonderful moisturizing body balm!

This has to be one of my most favorite boxes that I have gotten this year. It truly has something that I will use every single day, but might not have gone and bought myself.

This is truly a Treat-Yo-Self type of box. So what are you waiting for?!?! Treat-Yo-Self and go out and get yourself a subscription to this amazing service!

I’ll see you next season with the Oceanista box! I can’t wait to see what they have come up with!

Subscription Box Review: Simple Loose Leaf Tea Company

Simple Loose Leaf

I was graciously sent this TEA-licious box of Classic Tea by Simple Loose Leaf. Ya get it?! Ya get it?! Oh, my goodness! This tea is absolutely mouthwatering. They have something for everyone! From white tea, green tea, and black tea.

From Simple Loose Leaf Company:

“Each month you’ll get a box filled with teas ranging from classically savory to enjoyably trendy, you’ll get terrific, members’ only discounts for our tea shop, and you’ll get everything you need to make that perfect cup of tea.”

What You’ll Get:

  • Four hand packaged loose leaf teas
  • 40g of tea in resealable pouches
  • A black tea, a green tea, an herbal tea and more
  • Reusable organic linen tea filters

Grand

Grand Keemun is a surprisingly light black tea. I love how it just flows easily from the cup and into my mouth.

It is not overpowering in any way! I love that it has a slight fruit taste with hints of smoky notes in the aroma.

I, of course, sweetened it with a little bit of organic honey that I used in all of my teas and it was the perfect mixture!

I just love this box so much! Getting it every month is a huge delight! This tea originates from China and has the normal amount of caffeine. Perfect for a morning drink or something in the afternoon!


Berry

Okay, I think I have found my favorite types of tea thanks to this subscription box! I LOVE BERRY TEA!!!

This is the perfect mix of Sleepy Time tea with a hint of citrus and berries. I know that this will be my favorite tea right before bedtime!

You can drink it hot or cold. It has the classic herbal chamomile base that will help you fall into a relaxed state. Perfect for right before bed. It has hints of orange, hibiscus, and raspberry leaves.

Which is amazing due to the fact that raspberries are my favorite fruit! I highly recommend this tea!
In a way this tea kind of tastes like fruity pebbles the cereal! Haha!


Green

Oooooo! I love this tea! Not only is the color of this tea inviting, but the aroma is overwhelming. It made me close my eyes, breathe in a lung full of air, and sigh with such satisfaction.

I love how berry this tea tastes! It is a green tea hailing from China and has a normal amount of caffeine.

I can see myself brewing a whole jug of this and drinking it cold throughout the hot summer days! Just a little bit of honey and it takes the tartness to the perfect level!

This is such a wonderfully colored tea as well! It is full of green tea, hibiscus, marigold flowers, jasmine, and mango flavors! The perfect tea for those warm summer nights!



Last, but certainly not least it the Kashmiri Chai tea. I have a HUGE weakness for Chai tea. But this tea…it reminds me of my childhood.

Specifically, have you ever tried one of those cinnamon candies that your grandma, grandpa, or great-aunt always kept in their purse or pocket?

Those ones with the perfect amount of sweetness, spice, and everything nice? That is exactly what this tea has. It is perfect.

I can see myself drinking this tea all year round! I would most definitely drink this hot, myself. I just love how cozy it makes me feel!


 

Go check Simple Loose Leaf out! Your taste buds won’t regret it!

XOXO
