Lets get Trashy! Or in the case of this week-you get a mish mash. But everyone loves trash so send me your empty pics as well as you thoughts to be featured: mailboxjunkie at gmail dot com.
This week I had to pack a bag: for the hospital! If you have been following any of my posts then you know I was about to give birth any minute. And I did!! Hooray new life!
Since my week was consumed with snuggles and the largest maxi pads you have ever seen in your life I didn’t get through many empties. However, being a sub box junkie means that sub boxes fill your life in so many ways so here was my packed hospital bag:
So if you watch groupon or rue la la then you can get some pretty amazing deals on Bespoke post. This is the weekender bag they created. It has pretty leather details and is a durable canvas material. I got it for $21!!
It isn’t huge so if you were going to use it as your only weekend bag then you are looking at packing a black maxi and two tops and praying you don’t spill anything on yourself.
Another $21 dollar deal!! This is my mom bag. I got it about a year and the dang thing is indestructable. It fits everything and looks the same a year later as the day I got it.
This bag at any given time contains: wallet, sunglasses, diapers, banana peels, juice boxes, planners, and sunscreen. And that is a light day!
Here were my essentials:
I started using this stuff when I went on my natural kick. It works great and has totally changed the texture of my hair. They are now selling it at Walmart!
Fancy french toothpaste? Hey, it came in my Oui Please box. It has pretty good ingredients and it tastes like cinnamon. And for being fancy and French it isn’t that pricey so I may rebuy.
Cue…I’m so fancy…
This stuff came to me by way of Subscriptionista. It works great! I love Angel Face because they have great stuff, good ingredients and cheap prices. This stuff feels gentle enough to use everyday.
This came in my Boxwalla box and it is my favorite lotion at present. It is lightweight, simple ingredients and it has a “fresh out of the dryer” smell. And for being a sort of fancy boutique lotion it is not that expensive. So will be re-buying! Need to try more of their crazy scents like Bonfire Celebration of Briarwood meadow!
I switched to natural deodorant awhile ago and I have mixed feelings about it. I am not going to lie there are times I regress and use my husbands speed stick. But one thing I can’t get behind with the natural stuff is having to apply it with your fingers. Ya, not doing it. Saw this one at Target and it was cheap so I though hey, why not?!
I realized it was for kids like 2 weeks after I had been using it. No wonder I have been feeling young at heart…..
Another Boxwalla Winner. I packed this particularly because I knew hospital air is really dry and so I wanted my face lotion to hold in as much moisture as possible. Success! This stuff is delightful and a little goes a long way because it is packed with all kinds of yummy butters like cacao, mango, shea and more!
Yep, Boxwalla. What can I say? The stuff they send is amaze-balls. Read my review here of the February box. This stuff has honey in it so it tones and moisturizes and well smells like heaven.
They mention on their product description that you can get this in your mouth. Hmmm, is that a selling point? or like hey you lazy gal, it’s ok if you forgot to close your mouth. This stuff won’t hurt you!
And because last week I was in total nest mode and cleaning up and out a storm, I did some swaps on MSA swap board. Here is what I scored:
I swapped for: Mara Hoffman Sarong
My mom is literally one of the coolest people I know and so she hardly every really likes any of my sub box cast offs. So she saw my sarong like this from the Box of style and was like…Raises one eyebrow….“Hm, I like that”… (meaning she wants to steal it). So I immediately went on the hunt to track one down for her. I swapped very generously for it too!
I swapped for: We Wood Watch
This watch is sooo pretty in person! The wood is lightly finished and I am pretty much in love with it. It is very large though so I am going to have to take a few links out. It also has a very manly feel to it. Not like a lot of the ladies watches they make these days that have a large face and are dainty. This one is solid! Bust out the feminine bracelets to balance it out.
That’s all folks. Sorry this week was a mish mash and posted late! But there is a brand new baby to cuddle…………………………………….
