Toka Box – July Tiger Box Review

We had the joy of trying out the July Toka Box this month!  It was all about tigers!

The Toka Box is a monthly subscription box that has a different theme every month. Each box focuses on literary skills, STEAM skills, school readiness, and life skills.

July 29th was International Tiger Day, so the theme they chose was perfect!!  Did you know that we have lost 97% of tigers in the wild?  International Tiger Day is both to raise awareness for the conservation of these majestic creatures and to celebrate them!  😊

The box came with a book called,  “Tiger on a Tree,” by Anushka Ravishankar and Pulak Biswas.  It also came with a fun craft!

This is such a fun rhyming story about a tiger who wanders from shore to shore, a scary cat that climbs up a tree.  The humans then trap him and wonder what to do with him?  “He’s caught. He’s got. Now what?” they say.  They then make a suprising decision to release him, and the tiger runs off again.

My girls really loved this book, and the fun craft that went along with it!

Tiger Hide and Seek Craft 

I loved how everything you needed for this craft was included in the box.

Fun Fact:  Did you know that the tiger is the largest wild cat in the world? Its tail can be 3 feet long or almost as long as the height of the three year old kid!

May 2017 Fit Snack Box Unboxing

I don’t know about you, but I can always use a bit of extra motivation when it comes to eating healthier (especially snacks); and there are so many products on the market.  Fit Snack Box Provides a monthly subscription experience of healthy conscious foods, innovative snacks, and fitness tips to support your active lifestyle.  I really love the wide variety of products you get to discover every month.  Trying and finding new “healthy” snacks that my children actually like is a challenge – but having them delivered to your door in a box has made it fun for my children.  It also gave me new ideas for work and school snacks.

Sisters Anita and Rose Muniz are the duo behind Fit Snack. They realized that taking the leap to live a healthier life is not always easy.  The grocery store is lined with high sugar, over processed foods, not everyone has access to Sprouts or Whole Foods and it’s really hard to know what new healthy snacks you will like without tasting them. The Fit Snack duo decided that they would curate an assorted box every month and on top of that, include at home workouts and bonuses like free music downloads. 

Each Fit Snack Box comes with 7-10 full-size and deluxe sample items, plus free workout and recipe cards.  This is a $32+ in guaranteed value.

When selecting products to include in the box, they use the Fit Snack “Perfect 10″.  Put simply, they look for snacks that fall into one or more of these categories: Nutrient Dense (high in protein, complex carbs, low sugar index), Consciously Made (GMO free, organic production, sustainably farmed), and Diversified Energy (gluten free, clean eating, paleo, raw).

Fit Snack offers several different subscription plans including 1-month, 3-month, 6-month, and annual subscription options. Monthly box prices start at $15.00 (+ $5 S/H) and provide double that value within each box.

This box is a great monthly reminder to eat healthy, and best of all — it’s delivered right to your door.  Try it out yourself and order your own!

This is what I received in my box this month.

Rise Buddy Chips:  is the “new chip” off the old block.  They taste just like the couch potato chip, but are Gluten Free, Trans-fat free, and best of all made from “whole grain” brown rice.  That means families can snack smart.

They have a nice crunchy texture that the kids loved.

Fawen Drinkable Soup:  is a delicious boost of plant-based superfood to fuel an active lifestyle, anytime, anywhere!  Organic, hydrating, and clean – drink Fawen daily to fuel the things you love!

This was an easy lunch to take to work.

Foods Alive:  Food to nourish your body, mind & soul… Foods Alive is a family owned company dedicated to creating the healthiest foods.  Just like you, we care deeply about the food we put in our bodies, so we only use the highest quality Organic, Began, Kosher, & Gluten Free ingredients in the foods we make.  Everything we create here at Foods Alive is of the deepest integrity, from our family to yours.

If you like lemon, you will like these crackers.

Peanut Butter & Co:  Mighty Night Powdered PB. 90% Less Fat.  5g-6g of Protein.  Great for smoothies, oatmeal, and baking!

We ate ours on top of icecream, not healthy .. but delicious.

Purely Inspired:  Nutrition you want, taste you crave.  Purely inspired Organic Protein provides a 20g of protein, 7g of fiber, only 2 grams of sugar and nothing artificial.  It’s delicious choice you can feel good about.

I loved taking these to work as a snack!

Bite Fuel Protein Granola:   Bite Fuel Blue Mango Protein Granola Trail Mix is a tasty snack with 10 grams of grass fed whey protein.

This was by far my favorite! 🙂

KH by Kalani Subscription Sock Box Review and Giveaway

Socks are one of my favorite ways to add a splash of personality to my wardrobe!  So as you can imagine, when I heard Kalani Hilliker from Lifetime’s hit TV show, “Dance Moms” started her own sock line, I was all about it!

Kalani’s Sock Box is a monthly subscription service that features two brand new pairs of socks designed by Kalani herself.  Each month, you’ll receive two new pairs of soft, synthetic-blend socks with playful, unique patterns (a $30.00 value).  You can buy each sock individually if you don’t want to sign up for the monthly subscription box.

To be truthful, I expected these socks to be like any other decorative socks that I own; cute, but not that comfy.  Most of the socks that I own are too tight, slip down all day, or don’t hold up for very long.  I must admit, I was pleasantly surprised when I put on these socks!!  They were not only more than what I expected.; they are my new favorite socks!

The socks I received in my box for review were crew socks, with a built-in heel.  The heel is one of the reasons the socks are super comfy.  They are made out of a soft, synthetic stretch blend which makes them perfect for all day wear.  I thought that they breathed wonderfully while keeping my feet warm.   I loved that they didn’t slip down throughout the day.   They are a wonderfully designed sock, not at all what I expected.  I’m so ready to see Kalani’s designs for next month!
