Disclosure: I received a complementary sample in order to facilitate a review. No other compensation was received. All opinions were honest and my own but may vary from yours.



Subscription boxes are all the rage. There are boxes for just about anything from makeup and beauty to ones for children and pets.
I recently was sent the Summer VIP box from fabfitfun for review. Fabfitfun is a quarterly subscription service so it's only mailed out once per every 4 months. The cost is $49.99 for each box. Curated by Giuliana Rancic and the fabfitfun team, each box contains premium full-size products worth $120+ of various Beauty, Fitness, Fashion and Wellness finds.
Here are the items I received in my box:
Ivory Mason Sunglasses - I have never heard of this brand before but was pleased with the pair I was sent. They fit me and frame my face nicely. Very comfortable to wear and the quality seems pretty durable. They were sent in a nice pouch to keep them in along with a card with directions if y…

I was recently sent a Gymboree gift card to do some Back to School shopping for my daughter and share my thoughts and experiences with you. I happened to shop during their huge Back to School sales event, which is still in effect. 30% off all regular priced items and 20% all sale priced items. Plus you can earn Gymbucks!
What are Gymbucks?
For every $50 you spend either in store or online, you earn $25 in Gymbucks. Then when it's time to redeem Gymbucks, you can take your Gymbucks and use them.  Example: You spend $50 during a Gymbucks earning period and earn $25 in Gymbucks.

My daughter loves candy and fruit snacks but I don't like all of the artificial stuff that most of them contain. Sure, most fruit snacks market themselves as full of Vitamin C and all that but most contain high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors and colors and are generally not an option I like giving my daughter who is already hyper enough as it is.
It's also back to school time. My daughter starts back to school in about 2 weeks so I have been making sure I have after school snacks on hand and things ready for the school year. She always is hungry after school but I don't want her loading up on candy or junk foods.
YumEarth has solved my problem! They now have fruit snacks available. When th…

Square Shooters is a live action game that was patented by an empty nest grandmother in 2011. It's functional cards-on-dice layout allows for many hours of family fun.
I grew up playing games, specifically card games. As a child, my great Aunt and I would always play Rummy and Pinochle when she came to visit my grandmother during the Summer months. I remember going over to my Grandmas house daily and we would play cards for hours. So when Square Shooters contacted me about doing a review of this game, I gladly accepted.
The idea behind Square Shooters is that there are 9 dice that can be rolled to create poker hands, rummy hands and more. An entire 52 card deck plus 2 jokers make up the dice making it poss…
