Subscription Box Review: VINE OH !

We are moving away from beauty subscription boxes for a minute to look at lifestyle boxes.

The lifestyle box that is geared towards women is called vineoh.com

Vineoh.com actually takes women's love specifically for wine and pairs them with lifestyle products.

We actually became aware of this subscription box through participating in a survey for the brand.

Here is what we love about the box:

1. You have a choice between all reds, all  whites, and a mix, the quarterly subscription costs 59.95, however you can choose a one time gift in between quarters.

2. The ordering between quarters is great because during the summer months when you have out of town guests or people, going to BBQ's people you are more apt to serve or bring a bottle of wine.

3. This is the aspect that will keep them in business: They have a box, where you items that are specifically geared for women. In this box we received Dana Herbert earrings, Mixture of bath products, Govino 16 oz. Wine Glasses in a 2 Pack, a hu…

Thanks again to Our Sponsors for a great night.

Subscribtion Box Battles: Fab Fit Fun vs. Target- Natural and Regular

Back to battle:

Fab Fit Fun has been in the subscription boxing arena for years!

But, it underwent some major management changes, however we decided to give it a try again.

Fab Fit Fun-- is a quarterly box and it is filled with amazing things:
All of their products are not samples!
They had products such as wraps for the bed or picnic blanket, earrings, full size product of Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion, Karua face masks four in a box, and a MILLY bag for your wet suit, all of these products retail well over 45.00 each.

Target Box--
This month Target tried something new and put together an all natural box and a regular box.

Target has an all natural box which has samples of Espom Salt Soak, Raw Sugar Body Wash, Yes to Charcoal Face Mask, Hello Toothpaste, etc.

Target's regular box has products such has  full size Sally Hansen nail enamel top coat and base, full size Rimmel London Eye Pencil, and mini shampoo's, etc.

Frugality Alert: Spring/Summer Fun Tips

Spring and Summer is upon us as the temps in NYC are trying to latch on to the 60's, so desperately.

Here is how you can take advantage of all the great spring and summer events in NYC.

Concerts:

There are tons of free concerts, but you have to arise a little bit early!

The todayshow.com is known for there free summer concerts and the first artist up is Cheryl Crow!!

There is also gma.yahoo.com for there free outdoor concerts which last year was pretty amazing.

So you aren't into waking up early, but this is a great way to send your out of town guests into the city and they come back early in time for a great dinner.

Health and Fitness:

We discovered that at Samsung 837 store there are free Yoga classes that you can take on weekends.

Also the Highline great outdoor activities including free Yoga as well.

Bryant Park has a group yoga class as well and mats are free.

Day Getaways:

So you decided on a staycation, that's fine check the MTA- LIRR for there rates on One Day Getaway…

Prepping for Summer with items for Playdates, Spring Cleaning and House Guests

We were in Target just the other day and looking through the 1.00 to 3.00 bins and what did we find???

We found all 1.00 Dr. Seuss playing card decks for the kids we found erasers, pencils, stickers, sticker books, and bags to match the theme of the party. Green Eggs and Ham, One Fish Two Fish things perfect for a child's party or summer play date with the kids. Newer items such as Finding Dory, Trolls were 3.00 but they are still new for kids. The standards such as  Elsa from Frozen, Batman, Stars Wars and also in the 1.00 bin and of course all of these items were authentic, Target only is allowed to sell licensed products from Disney and certain authors.

Even mini cans of play dough were .99 cents and dig in the back of aisles and what did we find authentic Hot Cars for .90 cents each and packs of 4 were 4.00, so if your kids are having play dates this summer bring along a gift bag of goodies one for your child and the other and watch them have loads of fun.

The total on everything…
