Treatsie - October 2016


Happy Valentine's Day, y'all!

What is Treatsie?: Treatsie is a monthly subscription box with sweets! It's actually a box with artisan sweets, so the kinds of things I won't normally spend the time to make but love eating. Each box has food from three different vendors so there will always be a good variety and plenty to sample from.

How Much is Treatsie?: Treatsie is $19.95/month but guarantees at least a $25 value, and you can always lower your monthly cost by subscribing for longer terms. If you click here to sign up, you will get double sweets for your first month!


Were you looking for a doozy of a review? Well you got one. Let me preface this by saying that I live in Georgia where it's hot. It's actually Summer most of the year, even in October. Please let this be a warning to anyone and everyone that chocolate cannot be sent in the mail in October to Georgia (or most places in the South) without either being wicked fast shipping or in a temperature contained box.

Lip Love - October 2016


What is Lip Love?: Lip Love is a monthly subscription box by So Susan. Each month will include at least three full-sized products, one bonus makeup, and one bonus accessory. Each month you get a unique canvas bag as well.

How Much is Lip Love?: Lip Love is $20.95 (American) per month with international shipping available. I did have to pay a foreign transaction fee because they are located in the UK, so make sure you know that ahead of time. They have begun shipping from a US distribution center, but shipping time doesn't seem to have gotten any faster. The bags get cheaper if you do longer subscriptions, so that's always great.
