Graze | A FREE Box for YOU!

bi-weekly-wrap-up-17

Random Quote of the Day: “We can only learn to love by loving.” – Iris Murdoch 

Hello sunshines! 🔆 I am back, back, back, again with ANOTHER food subscription box! However, this time I have TWO codes for any of you guys to use to get yourself a FREE box! Stay tuned until the end of this post to get the code (:

Today I am featuring GRAZE. GRAZE is snacking reinvented.

“Graze was started by seven friends sick of chips and candy, who wanted a better way to snack. We quit our jobs and camped out in a friend’s spare room for months and after a lot of hard work, graze.com was born – snacks that show off the tasty side of health and are delivered directly to you. From pure fruit, to wholesome treats and dips & dippers – our huge variety (100 snacks with millions of graze box combinations) means there’s always something different to try so you’ll never be left standing at the vending machine feeling glum again!”

I was able to get this GRAZE box for FREE! Lucky for you I have a code that you can use to get a free box! However, let’s take a look at what I got:

Nature Box | Food For Your Tummy!

bi-weekly-wrap-up-17

Random Quote of the Day: “Of course there is no formula for success except perhaps an unconditional acceptance of life and what it brings.” – Arthur Rubinstein 

Hello sunshines! 🔆 I am back with an awesome FOOD subscription box unboxing + review! If you don’t remember, I’ve actually unboxed NATURE BOX before earlier when my blog was just a fetus. Since then I’ve ventured back into NATURE BOX for their free box — you just pay for $4.65 shipping! Anyways, let’s get into all the deets:

Image result for naturebox logoNATURE BOX is a subscription plan that delivers a world of carefully sourced and nutritionist-approved foods right to your door. Each snack contains wholesome ingredients – with no artificial sweeteners, flavors or colors.

I’m going to be honest — their site is a little hard to follow when it comes to subscribing or becoming a member, but from what I understand you only pay $5 a month? Also, you can purchase individual items without being subscribed which is pretty cool.

As I’ve mentioned I got this box just by paying for shipping ($4.95)! The only down side to this is that I didn’t get to choose which snacks I wanted in my box. Let’s see what was inside:

  • Salt & Vinegar Veggie Chips
  • Kung Pao Pretzels
  • Double Chocolate Brownie Cookies
  • Crunchy BBQ Twists

Hello sunshines! ☀ You may have noticed that I haven’t posted a Subscription Box Unboxing + Review for a couple of months.

Hello sunshines! 🔆 Here I am again with an Uppercase Box Unboxing + Review! It has officially been a year that I’ve been subscribed to Uppercase! Let’s get on with the unboxing + review…

Oh my goodness, this month’s items were SOOOOO adorable!! I have NEVER seen Cassette Tape bookmarks before this, so I am extremely happy with those!! I’ve seen Punk Rock Writers Journals before and I really like the graphics, so that was also a plus. The journal will definitely be put to good use! 😍 As for the book, this is another one that everyone has been talking about it. I must admit, it doesn’t intrigue me completely, but I will be reading it eventually! Also, the cover ❤️

OCTOBER UPPERCASE BOX RATING: 4.5/5 STARS

NOTE: In case you guys weren’t aware, the Exclusive Content includes a special code that you can enter on their website to unlock exclusive content,videos from the author, additional backstories, and interact with other Uppercase readers. I personally have not tried this out yet just because I haven’t gotten around to actually reading a book that they’ve sent me. However, I do enjoy the idea!


And that completes my Uppercase Box Unboxing + Review! I am really happy with this month’s box, and I actually JUST got November’s a few days ago 😁 Have you seen those bookmarks before?? Have you read Vassa in the Night?? Chat with me in the comments!

Random Fact of the Day: It takes up to four hours to hard boil an ostrich egg.

Hello sunshines!🔆 I almost had a mini heart attack because I thought I skipped a month of Uppercase, but turns out I didn’t! *wipes perspiration off of forehead* Anyways, today I am back with another unboxing and review of Uppercase Box: the September edition.

Uppercase Box | Young Adult Monthly Book Subscription BoxFrom Uppercase, every month you’ll get an amazing young adult book that you’ll absolutely love! Every book you get from Uppercase is a brand new, hardcover book that’s signed by the author or comes with a signed bookplate from the author. Every Uppercase book is always published within the last month.

  • Expert Plan – $23/month [everything listed from the Book Exclusive Plan, except you also get 1-2 high-quality bookish items]

ITEMS INCLUDED:

  • The Forgetting by Sharon Cameron — SIGNED
  • The Forgetting Mini Notebook
  • “This Is How We Roll” pouch (Uppercase Exclusive)
  • “Certified Book Addict” Sticker designed by Alexis Lampley of Nerdy.Post

The Forgetting has been on everyone’s radar lately, so I’m really glad I got this one so early! The “This Is How We Roll” pouch is so adorable, and I will definitely be putting that and the Notebook into good use. I also have trouble finding places to put stickers, but I’m sure this one will find a home ☺️

Also, did anyone notice the slightly purple-ish theme going on?? 💜 I love purple, so this was also a plus! AND the cover for The Forgetting is absolutely gorgeous 😍

SEPTEMBER’S UPPERCASE BOX RATING: 4/5 STARS

NOTE: In case you guys weren’t aware, the Exclusive Content includes a special code that you can enter on their website to unlock exclusive content,videos from the author, additional backstories, and interact with other Uppercase readers. I personally have not tried this out yet just because I haven’t gotten around to actually reading a book that they’ve sent me. However, I do enjoy the idea!


And that is all for the September Uppercase Box! Uppercase has definitely been increasing in better bookish items, so I am really happy about that! After next month, I am going to have been subscribed for a year, and I’m thinking I might want to move on to a different subscription box? Let me know your thoughts!
