From: Wine Awesomeness (Coupon: For a limited time, get a FREE bottle of bubbly with any prepaid Wine Awesomeness Membership, no coupon required, just use this link! Or, Get one bottle free when you subscribe!, no coupon required, just use this link
Why I love it: My favorite item this month is a bottle of 100% Pinot Gris from Willamette Valley, Oregon’s Mouton Noir. The taste is packed with fruity flavors of apple, pear, and peach, and there’s something about this wine that’s just fun and upbeat. I found it to be VERY drinkable and super tasty!
Anna Rodriguez’s Favorite:
The Item: Cold Shoulder Bell Sleeve Dress
The Cost: $56.95, VIP Price $39.95
Why I love it: This is my new favorite dress! It’s so beautiful! I love the colors and print, and it’s amazingly both comfortable and flattering. Win!

Why I love it: Seriously still thinking about these pancakes, and would recommend them highly! They were so fluffy and satisfying. I wanted to make more this past weekend but we were sadly out of butter and syrup. It’s also worth noting that I finally got around to making the grits from this box last night for dinner (with roasted veggies and lots of hot sauce) and they were soooo good too. Definitely planning a Kentucky & Tennessee road trip soon.
The Item: Dinosaur Costume from Cat Couture
The Cost: Listed Value $45
Why I Love It: I knew as soon as I opened the box and saw a peek of this that it would be awesome. It is quite possibly the funniest thing I have ever received from a cat subscription box. (I’m not sure my cats agree, at least not the ones who had to wear it.) I can look at the photos of Monkey and Mr. Kitty in it again and again and not get tired of doing so.
The Item: Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast, 3 oz
The Cost: Value $15
From: Play! by Sephora #444
Why I love it: I love trying new products from Living Proof! This is a volume and texture spray you use on dry hair. You’re supposed to spray it in sections from root to end, or just the root for some focused boost there. I tried it just on my roots and I definitely noticed a difference! It smells nice, too. Note that this isn’t a dry shampoo, though; definitely a texturizing spray. This is awesome for adding some oomph to your blowout, next day hair, or helping add some grip and volume for an up do!
Nancy S’ Favorite:
The Item: Bakery Charms Spring Sprinkles Donuts Necklace
The Cost: $22?
From: Sweet Surprises
Why I love it: Who doesn’t love donuts?? The level of craftsmanship, attention to detail, and cuteness in this necklace is unbelievable. I love the way the light reflects off of each sprinkle. I actually gave this to my younger sister as a surprise present and it is now her favorite necklace!
The Cost: Total Value $70.95
Why I love it: My wife will tell you I have a growing obsession with flashlights, and while I’m not as extreme as some, I will admit I probably have more than is really necessary. So when I saw this light at the bottom of my box, I was ecstatic! The Olight M1X can blast out 1000 lumens for about an hour on full charge. That’s crazy! And the beam can be thrown up to 623 feet. It’s really bright. Plus it has a striker tip, so it can double as a self-protection weapon. It comes with a 18650 battery, which looks like a long C-size battery, and it’s rechargeable, which is fantastic. It’s not too heavy but it is made of metal so it feels like a solid, well-built light.
Since the original review, I’ve kept this in my toolbelt as we work to fix up our home that was built in 1929. It’s been invaluable for lighting up all the dark corners and wall-interiors. I took it camping one night and on it’s highest setting it was enough to light up our entire site. The battery has lasted for over a month of occasional use and is still going strong.
Anna Reilly’s Favorite:
The Cost: $23.99?
Why I love it: I loved all the magical items in this ultra-creative box, but I was most wowed by this spool-shaped, time-keeping candle. In the context of the box, it’s meant to help you time your imaginary adventures, but this gadget has a curious real-world history that makes it all the more fascinating to me!
The Item: Douglas Plush Purple Narwhal
The Cost: $9.95
Why I Love It: It’s a stuffed Narwhal! Narwhals are about the coolest animals in the sea. Plus this one is purple, my favorite color. It’s soft and cuddly and my kids both love it so much they have to take turns each night to get the chance to bring it to bed. I might cave and just buy another one.
The Item: Franz Fabric Clutch
The Cost: retail $36.95 (VIP price: $24.95)
Why I love it: As soon as I saw this on JustFab at the beginning of March, I knew I had to order it! The clutch is a great size and proving to be quite versatile. It is great quality and I’m a big fan of the textile weave design and faux leather details!
The Item: AnnMarie Skin Care Restore Sample Kit
The Cost: $10.00
Why I love it: I really liked a serum I received from Feeling Fab this month too but these AnnMarie products won out! With all three products in the kit, the ingredient list is healthy and great for your skin, they leave your skin feeling soft and the natural earthy smell is divine. If you want to use natural products on your skin, I’m betting you will love this line.
The Item: Nourish & Shine
The Cost: Value $11.00?
Why I love It: This multi-use blend of butters and natural oils is ideal for my dry skin and hair. I used this to lay my edges, grease my scalp, and tackle my dry skin. This is my new favorite beauty product!
The Item: Predator Jungle Demon Figure
The Cost: Value $45 (based on Amazon pack of 7)
Why I love it: Besides the fact that the figure itself looks great and is a callback to the original movie, we’re also getting this first-to-market and I love that kind of exclusivity on such a great item.
The Cost: Retail Value $17.99 (On Amazon for $10.29)
Why I loved it: I finished this book in a day. It is one of those books that is just fun to read, and it has great pacing, too. (And it’s great to get a YA book in a genre that hasn’t been overdone. Yay for pirates!) I already can’t wait for the next book in the series!
