Bulu Box Review

I'm a huge try before I buy type of person. I hate the thought of buying a big thing of vitamins or protein bars for example and risk not knowing if I will like them or not! I really hate that I would have wasted money on something that will get thrown away! Most of the time when I try new things it's because I have sampled them at Whole Foods or other health food stores before I buy!

I'm in the very early stages of "Operation Get Fit" that's why I was ecstatic to try the Bulu Box Subscription for review!

About "Bulu Box is the first health, nutrition and weight loss discovery box designed to help you feel your best. Each month, you’ll get a custom box filled with a new mix of 4 to 5 premium samples from top brands to try. Every sample is sufficient enough to decide if the product is right for you. Of course, shipping is always free and you can cancel anytime. Share your thoughts about each product in our sample surveys and you can earn 50+ Rewards Points (that's $5!) each month! Use your points to purchase your new favorites in full size at BuluBox.com! Here you’ll also get expert tips, tricks and a supportive community of Bulugans just like you! Join the discovery and find a healthier you!"

The Details:
Cost: $10.00 a month

I love that this box touches on all areas of health, lifestyle and fitness! This box was a huge hit in our house! Here is the Bulu Box I received this month!
The Dream Water has yet to be tried although I'm fascinated about the concept!

Natural, 0-Calorie, 2.5oz sleep and relaxation shot, helps you wake up feeling rested and rejuvenated
  • As your new bedtime and travel companion (TSA Compliant), Dream Water can help you get your Zzzs at home, on the road, or in the air
  • A Fast-Acting Liquid supplement form for better nutrient absorption, Non-Habit Forming, Natural alternative to prescription or over-the-counter pills
  • Proprietary SleepStat Natural Blend of GABA, Melatonin, & 5-HTP is an OU Certified Kosher, Gluten Free, Liquid Sleep Aid
  • As featured on CNBC, Fox, Bloomberg, and Favorite Things, Dream Water can help you relax, promote restful sleep, and can help you wake up without the morning after grogginess.

  • We shall see!! Ralph ate the Simple Being Vitamin Gummies and was a huge fan so we will be purchasing those. The  Miracle Tree Tea was super relaxing. Miracle Tree Tea is made with a special blend of all 100% organic ingredients, and they were even given a 2015 Healthy Food & Drink Award for their delicious flavors in their tea. So what’s Miracle Tree Tea’s secret? The Monringa Plant and lets just say the lentil crackers Made with all Natural Ingredients *Low Fat & Gluten-Free *Non GMO *were the perfect pairing item! The flyjoy power bar came in perfect as a pre workout snack and actually tasted really good!! We just got a family membership at the local YMCA so I think having a box in the car will come in handy!! You all know me (super geek, super romantic and super cheesy) I LOVE word poems and the fridge magnetics where you can make your own inspirational quotes or quick letters to your Love! Ralph and I have been having fun with those! Overall I think this box was a HUGE hit in our home! Definitely worth a shot! To read more or to purchase your own you can go HERE!!

Life with an 18 month old is Amazingly Crazy! Really I say that in the best possible way!! :) I'm having a blast with my spicy Sophia!

    As of late the most requested posts have been "what do you feed your daughter" and "WHERE do You get all of her Head wraps!!!!???" When it comes to food I often wonder where my child came from....She is a super healthy eater unlike her momma. In the coming weeks I will capture her food consumption. In the mean time I will share with you all Our new line up for Spring and Summer!! I have searched high and low and I'm pleased to bring you the hottest and trendiest head wraps in the World...yes I said WORLD! Some being sought out as far as The United Kingdom!!!

    Sophia has always liked to wear things on her head and often times runs to a mirror to say "aaaaaa and uuuuww" with a huge smile on her face! Besides her Freshly Picked Moccs head wraps have become a signature staple in her everyday wardrobe.

    Here are the Top Head wraps of 2015

    Miss Molly June Designs is a small shop for little ones. All items are handmade in New Mexico. Share your photos with them on instagram! @missmollyjunedesigns

    About Miss Molly June Designs, "Creating adorable and unique handmade items for bambinos, tots and tykes!" If the headwraps weren't enough for me to go gaga over this shop the clothes have almost sent me over the edge! I love unique, I love trendy and these clothes are to die for! They are so cute, you really have to check them out for yourself!! Head over to shop at Miss Molly June Designs HERE You can also find them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!

    This headwrap is so adorable and versatile! It is handmade from a fun stripped blue cotton fabric, measuring approximately 33" long and bow ends are approximately 3" wide and taper toward the back. The knot is not sewn shut so size can be adjusted for a perfect fit and small elastic band in the back to gives a little stretch as your child grows. 
    This Headband stayed on Sophia ALL Day!! It is super comfy and she didn't mind having it on! Not to mention how adorable the print is!! We bought the perfect spring Sailor Girl outfit to match it! Comes in next week so stay tuned for more pictures soon!!

About the shop, "The Rosie Marketplace was named after my daughter/co-owners cat "Rosie". We offer trendy fashion accessory items as well as crafting supplies." They seriously have he most adorable items...You have to check them out! My favorite thing about these head wraps is the elastic back! Especially with how much Sophia is on the go!

    Info on The Rosie Marketplace wrap, "The big bow headwrap has an elastic insert in the back for a perfect fit every time! The elastic at the neck ensures a great fit and stays on MUCH better than regular tieup headbands. Easy to tie in a perfect bow PLUS once it's tied you can simply slip off and on the head without having to re-tie each time. This is a GREAT feature of this headband because tying on a wiggly baby/child is not so easy to do."

    We have Fallen in LOVE with LITTLE FREE SPIRIT! About Little Free Spirit, "About three years ago, I had the grand idea to buy a sewing machine. No, I had never used one. No, I had no clue how to sew. No, I have no idea what I was thinking. BUT I'm happy I did it, because I found something I really love to do! Since then, I've taught myself how to sew, accumulated tons of fabric and gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, which leads to the reason I wanted to open up shop.  I enjoy making things for my little free spirit, Parker Kaye, but I really want to spread the love. I can't wait to create accessories for you & your little free spirit, too!"
