HAPPY FRIYAY! This Friday feels so much more needed than any other Friday in the past few weeks. It’s been one heck of a week people. We were approved for our new home (we’re renting this time around) and while it’s super exciting, it’s also super stressful. First off, it’s SO much more expensive than our home here. Which I figured would be the case but when I think about paying rent and our mortgage until it sells/gets rented makes me sick. Time is dwindling down so it’s starting to worry me. I’m just hoping there’s a reason for all of this and it will all just work out how it’s supposed to…#positivethinking…

So I’ve gotten/tried a few fun things over the past few weeks so today, we’re breaking it down! Let’s start with this Essential Oils Subscription Box:





I know what you’re thinking, you’re about to talk about back-to-school and it’s almost November. Sue me, it’s been crazy here. BUT the point of this post isn’t back-to-school but rather this super exciting subscription box that I was able to try out! So ignore the fact that I’m a space cadet and just now getting around to sharing, hmm k?

So what is it? The Coffee Grace Oils subscription box is a monthly box featuring you guessed it, Essential Oils. Each month features 3-4 different recipes and a special gift. I’m sure you’ve heard of Essential Oils and may even use them, but I love that these come pre-made and take out the guesswork. Super convenient and practical. The box retails for $29.95 a month and you can purchase in one, two, or three month bundles. And when you bundle, you save a little

Next I was introduced to Octer. “Octer is a unique marketplace of the biggest US stores where you can shop departments or shop by store. From fashion to gadgets we instantly compare thousands of brands and show you the nearest matches; so you’ll always get the perfect style & price and discover products from stores you hadn’t considered before.”




Next I was sent a few samples from the Forever Flawless Blue Line. The Forever Flawless products are infused with diamond powder. Why? Well because it is said to exfoliate the top layer of skin and allow the nutrients to penetrate deeper and become more effective. (You can read all about it here) Your eyes and under eye area are super thin and sensitive, so it’s important to use products specifically designated for protecting it. I definitely noticed a tighter feeling after using them (first the Eye Serum and then the Eye Cream) but would like to see the long-term results. Full disclosure, these products are very pricey. Each of these products retails for $399 and I think I would have a hard time every justifying that. However, if you can afford it, go for it! Just not sure it’s in my price range for a repeat purchase. But the products do go along way and you could probably have them both for months, possibly even longer.


And last but not least, the cutest little printer you ever did see. I was lucky enough to see the HP Sprocket when I attended BlogHer in LA before it was even released to the public! And then they sent me one… and I’m obsessed. It uses NO ink but rather heat and it prints straight from your phone. And the back of the paper is sticky so you can stick them in an album, on folders, at the bar… wherever! This would make such a great gift for anyone on your holiday shopping list



Hope y’all have a great weekend… see you Monday! xo
