I hope you’ve had a great week and are looking forward to a fun weekend! A few things to get your weekend off to a great start:
1. One Day Closer to Sweater Weather
I’m kind of over summer. I know once there’s ice on the ground I’ll be envisioning 80+ degree weather, but for now, I’m over it. When it’s so hot out my fashion choices seem so limited – basically whatever will keep me the most cool. I’m ready to layer and pull out my jackets and blazers and tights! I’ve just got to hang in there a little bit longer! Are you ready for cooler temps or would you prefer it hot year round?
2. French Box Subscription
I mentioned yesterday on my FB page that I was contemplating trying out this new subscription full of fashion, beauty, and other French goodies and when I saw I could try it for a special rate, I just couldn’t resist! Normally $24/month, the first month only costs $14 to try! I figure I can risk $14 and then cancel if I’m not loving it! Now I can’t wait to see what’s inside!!!! If you want to get the September box, you’ve got to sign up by 8/23 to guarantee you get it! For more info, go here.
3. Mystery Envelope Review
A couple months back I posed a question on Twitter asking for other subscription boxes I needed to try. I quickly became aware of Mystery Envelope and since it was $4.99 a month, I figured I’d try it!
I had no idea what to expect since this is a new company and couldn’t find any reviews online. I had filled out a brief profile listing what categories I’d be most interested in. (I said fashion, of course.) And, this is what came in my June envelope:
Well, this is different. The June Mystery Envelope was apparently all about the good ‘ol USA. And while I am proud to be an American, I don’t have much use for these items, though when I showed the comic book to my husband he enthusiastically said, “That’s awesome!” Boys.
The July Mystery Envelope had a different theme and had a couple of pretty unique items.
These tiny coins are embedded with seeds, isn’t that cool? I received one coin of salad greens, and three of root crops. Will I get around to actually planting them? Time will tell.
The other item, is also not quite what it seems. This is a plantable pencil. You can use the pencil (as you would normally use a pencil) until it’s ready to plant. Water and then wait to see which type of herb is growing! Pretty cool.
While this subscription isn’t quite up my alley (I cancelled after the July envelope), it might be something that interests you! Check it out here if you want to sign up! Again, only $4.99 a month!
4. Big Limited Sale – Tomorrow (8/23) Only!
Who can pass up a 40% off sale? It’s a great time to pick up a few items for Fall, all from the comfort of home! PLUS, free shipping!! I know what I’m doing tomorrow!!
