May Daily Goodie Box Review

I've received quite a few boxes from Daily Goodie Box and they are always packed with fun products, but the May box was my most favorite yet!

*Disclaimer: This box was sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

Daily Goodie Box isn't a typical subscription service. They don't send out monthly boxes for purchase, but instead send out completely free boxes to certain members each month. It really is entirely free and you'll never be asked for any kind of payment information.

You can create an account on their website to try to get a box, and increase your chances by interacting with them on social media (links at the end of this post). All you have to do in return is leave a few sentences of feedback on the products on your account page.

What I like best about Daily Goodie Box is that they send deluxe samples (and even full-sizes, sometimes) from new brands in a variety of different product types. Here's what was inside the May box:
  • Prince and Spring Organic Applesauce - I know these are made for kids, but I actually like taking them myself for an on-the-go snack or breakfast! This applesauce is Non-GMO verified, USDA organic, and has no added sugar.
  • KÖE Organic Kombucha - I recently started drinking kombucha and I'm kind of obsessed with it now. For those unfamiliar, it's fermented tea. This one was Raspberry Lemon flavored and had juicy fruit flavor with no vinegar-y aftertaste like some kombuchas I've tried.
  • Michele's Granola Original - This is their snack sized bag and in the Original flavor, which has sweet coconut, sunflower seeds, sliced almonds, and a touch of pure Madagascar vanilla.
  •  Cusa Tea Variety Tea Pack - This has 10 individual tea services, two each of English Breakfast, Mango Green, Lemon Black, and Chai and one each of Oolong and Green. I like having instant teas on hand, especially when I travel.
  • Pure Aura Cosmic Shimmer Hologram Foil Mask - Another thing I'm obsessed with is sheet masks! The whole hologram/foil trend is fun but they don't really do anything for your skin, they just look cool. The foil itself, I mean. This one has activated charcoal and other ingredients to help soften and moisturize your skin.
  •  Kika's Treats Salted Crunchy Caramels - These were so yummy! They're dark chocolate covered caramels with crunchy rice inside and a touch of salt on the top. 
  • Goddess Garden SPF 30 Facial Sunscreen - This is the perfect addition to the box, given that the sun's finally coming out again. This has SPF 30 and is made with dermatologist-tested organic ingredients.
  • PiperWai Activated Charcoal Deodorant - I haven't yet found a natural deodorant that works well with my skin, but I'm always willing to try new ones. This one is free from aluminum and has activated charcoal to help draw out impurities. I like that it's made for sensitive skin, since my main issue with other natural deos is that they've left me with an underarm rash.

Bottom Line: Every product in the May Daily Goodie Box was a hit for me! It was the perfect mix of beauty and lifestyle items. I especially loved the Kika's Treats caramels and the Pure Aura mask.

May Gramma in a Box Review and Coupon

Time to celebrate spring with Gramma in a Box! The May box featured crafts with a "Cookies and Candy" theme.

*Disclaimer: This box was sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

Gramma in a Box is a great subscription to share with your loved ones! It was created by owner Terr when her grandchildren moved away and she wanted a way to share sweet treats with a touch of home with them. She decided to open it up as a subscription so that everyone could treat themselves to delicious candy and cookie treats!

Here are the pricing options:
  • Monthly: $20 per month
  • Three Months: $55 every three months (save $5)
  • Six Months: $110 every six months (save $10)
  • 12 Months: $220 every 12 months (save $20)
Shipping is free to the U.S. and taxes are included. If you want to cancel, do so by the 25th of the month.

Each box comes with everything you'll need for three projects, except for basics like a bowl and spoon for mixing ingredients. There are enough supplies to create 15 or so individual treats.

The first project was Pretzel Butterflies. The projects are always so creative! I love how Terry comes up with unique and adorable treats from simple, every day ingredients. This project included melting chocolate to use as a glue for two pretzels, then licorice and sprinkles to add the butterfly body and decoration.

The second project was my favorite because of how colorful it was! The Butterfly Bark used the remaining melted chocolate, which was combined with crisped rice cereal and topped with a mixture of beautiful sprinkles, marshmallows, and candies.

The third project is always cookies, and this month's box was Spring Cookie Decorating. The cookies were shaped like butterflies and flowers of different sizes and had colorful sprinkles and icing with which to decorate. The cookies are pre-baked, so it's advised that you complete the crafts within one week of receiving the box in order to keep them fresh.

Decorating the cookies is always a lot of fun, but not as fun as eating them! They're delicious sugar/butter cookies and I look forward to receiving them each month.
Bottom Line: The May Gramma in a Box was a lot of fun, as always. I especially liked the Butterfly Bark treat and my family enjoyed sharing all of the snacks!

April Emma & Chloé Review and Coupon

Emma & Chloé is an excellent subscription service for jewelry lovers. The jewelry they send is high quality and gorgeous, and they always feature unique designs. April's box had a beautiful set of hoop earrings.

*Disclaimer: This box was sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review. Post contains affiliate links.

Emma & Chloé sends a handmade jewelry piece each month. Sometimes they include bonus items, too; in the past I've received haircare products and a pair of sunglasses. Each box comes with a certificate of authenticity for your jewelry and a gazette with information about the designer and more. You'll also get 20 percent off of anything in their online shop for the life of your subscription.

Here are their pricing options:
  • Monthly: $35 per month
  • Three Months: $99 every three months ($33 per month)
  • Six Months: $186 every six months ($31 per month)
  • One Year: $348 annually ($29 per month, equivalent to two free boxes)

You can choose to receive gold or silver jewelry when you sign up. Every piece comes within a drawstring bag for storage, and there are care instructions on the back of the certificate of authenticity.

In past months, Emma & Chloé has featured up-and-coming French designers, but with April's box they're starting a new chapter. Now, each month you'll receive an item from one of the L'Atelier Emma & Chloé collections that they're releasing monthly.

April's jewelry is a beautiful pair of Oma Earrings! The hoop earrings feature an ivy leaf, which is a symbol of femininity and rebirth. The leaves have a "frosted" surface and are adorned with a liana ring inspired by the unique plant. My earrings are brass gilded with fine gold, and the other option is immersed in a silver bath.

These earrings are beautiful! I love the ivy design because I'm a Cubs fan (if you're not a baseball fan, the Cubs play at Wrigley Field, which is famous for its ivy plants along the outfield walls). If you're not big on hoop earrings, the leaves can also be separated from the hoop and worn alone.

I'm excited to see this new direction that Emma & Chloé is taking. They have always sent one-of-a-kind jewelry in the past, so seeing their new collections each month will be quite a treat!
Bottom Line: The Oma Earrings are beautiful and really well-made. The new Emma & Chloé is surely going to continue to send excellent pieces!
