Weekly goals are built on dreams

Mondays are for dreamers right? Okay, maybe not for everyone, but when you're working on your dreams, everyday seems pretty magical.

I'm FINALLY ready to share my dream that's becoming a reality. For about 2 years now I have been dreaming of starting my own business. But not just any business, a subscription box business!

I may have hinted about this in the past, but couldn't decide on a concept that worked for me. A few months ago I was sitting in my car waiting for the rain to stop when the idea came to me. It was like a light went on and everything was super clear.

I am happy to announce The Kind Step Box; a self care subscription box curated for stepmoms. Now you nay wonder why I chose that niche, but if you read my post on becoming a stepmom you will understand.

I believe self care is the best medicine for dealing with stressful situations and for anyone who is a step parent, you understand the challenges that come with being in that role.

I am in the pre-launch stage and am hoping to send out my first box this fall! Right now I am working on collecting e-mails of interested people. I invite you to sign up if you or someone you know would benefit from the box. I am working with some really amazing women to bring some pretty great items to the first box. I want this box to not only offer support for self care, but some sassy, fun items as well. Let's be honest, we all need a good laugh from time to time.

I am hoping to have a sample box put together soon so everyone can see what to expect. In the meantime it would be really amazing of you guys to sign up for my updates. I am planning to start doing weekly updates soon!

Thank you again, and I hope you all have a wonderful week!

PS: Lets all cross our fingers that I get my wedding invites out this week.. It's on the goal list..

Bulu Box - First Impression

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great holiday weekend if you celebrate Easter! I had the chance to spend it with my family and meet my new nephew who was born last weekend so it was a nice weekend for me. Now on with the blog..

Last month I decided to sign up for a 3 month subscription of Bulu Box. Bulu box is a subscription box curated towards health and fitness for only $10 a month. Because I have been focusing more lately on those topics I thought I would give it a shot. I realized over the weekend that I never posted my first impression. I received my first box on March 15th. Here's what I got!

biPro Instant Whey Protein Isolate Supplement in French Vanilla
I decided to take this shake in place of my normal shake one morning. I didn't mind the taste and it kept me feeling full for most of the morning. I felt a little hungry as I got closer to lunch time but for the most part it did the trick for me!

Shapeology Burn Blend Diatary Supplement
To be honest I have not tried this out yet. I am planning to do it this week and will share a quick thought on it later in the week. The only issue with this is it is only a one time sample so I am not sure I will be able to have a enough of an experience to see if I really liked it.

HELPS Organic R&R Tea
I tried out one of these babies on day one of having the box. I think the taste was very herbal but wasn't bad. I can't say for sure that this relaxed me but I will try the other one and let you know if there is any differene.

Brightcore Nutrition: Sweet Wheat Raw Wheate Grass Juice Powder Capsules
I really need more alkalizing foods in my life so I am exited to try these out. I like that they are vegan and gluten free.

 Vita Perk in Vanilla
This is a product that you add to your coffee to add vitamins and minerals. I have not been drinking coffee lately so I do not have a review on this. I may try it out this week just to see if it has any effect.

Zestra Essential Arousal Oils
I have not tried this out but I like that it is hormone free. I have a lot of issues with hormones to begin with so anything claiming they don't use hormones get an A in my book!

I have to say I am pretty impressed with my first months box. It came with 6 products and 8 samples total with the 2 tea bags and 2 Vita Perk pouches. I need to give some of the products a test still but I was happy with the box. Another item not showed was a free 3 month subscription to Salted, an online cooking class resource. I am planning on taking advantage of that so I can try out some new stuff!

So what did you think? Worth the $10 a month? Do you receive Bulu Box? How do you like it?

If you sign up with my referral link you will get your second month FREE!
