Taste Guru is a monthly subscription box that sends gluten free foods to your door once a month. I was eager to try this and got a three month subscription. This is the February box and I really enjoyed it. This is great if you want to try out some yummy gluten free food or just want to try some great tasting food.
My first item was a bag of crunchy apple crisps. These look like a great work snack to bring in!

Second item was a bag of poplets and these look so good because I love toasted corn so i can not wait to try these.
The third item was a full sized box of gluten free linguini. We love pasta in this house so it eill for sure get used.

The fourth item was tortilla soup which is one of my fave soups so I will have this for lunch one day this week.
My fifth item was pad thai noodle soup. I have never had this before but now I am going to try it for sure.
The sixth item was apple crisp oatmeal that has apples walnut and white chocolate chips. This sounds so yummy I can not wait for breakfast to try it out.
The last item was eat your vegetables sea salt chips. These look  like a snack I would also take to work so I am happy about these. I loved all the item in my box and will use all of them. I love when a subscription box includes items I will actually use so this is a total keeper for me!

Julep is a monthly nail subscription service. They offer a monthly nail/beauty box for $19.99. You can choose your box between just nail polish or makeup or a mixture of both. Each month you can see the contents of all box choices and switch around from month to  month.  I choose the make up box for February
I also choose an add on item to my box this month which was the conditioning nail polish remover.
This month had a great box with excellent value.
Even though I choose the make up box I got a nail color in my box! This was a great surprise. This is a fun golden glitter color that was great for Valentines day.
I also got an angler liner brush. This is a great product since I also got liquid eye shadow in my box.
This is a gel eyeliner I received. I love eyeliner so this is a great make up product that is going to get a lot of use.This also works great with the angler brush.

Lastly for my monthly box I received an eye sheen. I received a great neutral color that goes well with my make up look.For $19.99 I was very happy with my box and what I received. I felt the value was way more than what I paid.

Purex Crystals Review and Giveaway

As a Purex Insider I was able to try out the new Purex Crystals Fresh Mountain Breeze laundry enhancer. This product was  really amazing. The scent is very refreshing and you feel as if your on vacation relaxing instead of doing laundry! I have all boys in my household so the laundry can get very stinky here. I love how well this smells while I am doing the laundry. I can tell the difference in my clothing as well. They definitely smell fresher when it comes to the folding stage of laundry. I love it! The best part is that I can still smell the scent days later when I wear my clothes.  One of the big plus of Purex Crystals is that it is a natural formula safe for my family and safe for the environment. Those are really big issues for me so I feel good using the product. Another bonus is you can just simply add it to your laundry which makes the process so easy.

Good news is Purex is hosting a giveaway with a grand prize of $1000. Plus many other prizes. Enter Here.
