They offer discounts or great deals for the full size products! You can even earn credits to put toward the full size products!

Here's the breakdown of my first box!

As you can see, I wasted no time digging in! I was super stoked to get started!
I really liked the K-Pax energy pills as well as the Body Glove Surge Energy Gel. It seems I struggle most with low energy. I have problems with energy drinks and pills, so I was so skeptical. HOWEVER, these were a gentle boost. In fact... I didn't feel the rush at all... I just felt like I wasn't tired and wanted to get things done! If I had to choose, I would prefer the K-Pax energy, I like the pill form. The Body Glove Surge Energy Gel was not unpleasant... It was chocolate and tasty, but I prefer a pill. I am sure that the Gel was faster though.
I will be trying the VanaPain drink tonight. I helped Hubby tear down wallpaper and I think a gentle sleep aid with pain relief will be much needed!

Ok, let me break it down by product---

VanaPain PM- This is a Quick pain reliever for general aches which also helps with sleeplessness!
(Can't wait to try this!)

Body Glove Surge Energy Gel- All natural energy gel designed to extend endurance and give you lasting energy. 
(I have tried this, I do believe it lives up to the claims!)

Rootology- Concentrated blend of herbal extracts to immediately support nasal, sinus and eye health. This claims to provide dramatic seasonal allergy relief. 
I am saving these two samples for when my allergies are bad. If they work like they claim, I will be forever a customer! (I will update this after I try the product)

Havvn Go Sticks- Extend youth and improve health at it's core. 
Honestly, (and that's why I am writing this review... to be honest...) I did not like the taste of this product. I couldn't muster down more than 4 or 5 sips. I know that I am picky and some people may love it. I think even if I liked it, I am not sure I would purchase it. The claims are general and I am not sure what it really does or how it works. Will it really extend my youth? Come on? If anyone has tried this, let me know what you think! :)

Justin's Honey Peanut Butter- Made using basic ingredients, add this to your snack for a tasty bite of natural protein energy.
(Haven't tried it, but looking forward to it. I am all for natural products. I like that it's got basic ingredients without uneccessary junk. I don't want to put a bunch of junk in my body when I just want some peanut butter, ya know!?)

K-Pax energy- Get a healthy and immediate energy boost! Vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants and just the right amount of caffeine to get you up and ready. No artificial taste or sweeteners.
I really liked this! It did give me a boost! I am sensitive to any energy pill or drink, but I find this to be gentle enough not to give me the shakes, but packs enough of a punch that I do notice an increase in energy! Overall a great product. I would buy the full size!


I loved this box so much that I went ahead and ordered a 3 month subscription!
BULU BOX was kind enough to offer my readers a discount--

 The bag was created by an artist named Klari Reis. I really like originality, so this was a plus for me. Although it is not exactly what I would normally choose, I can think of lots of ways to use this bag. It's got a very durable plastic covering. I think this would be a great bag to throw your essentials into and toss into your gym bag or beach bag!

Alexa's Angels -Yellow Positivity set Review and Giveaway

Positivity Bracelets are a reminder that "attitude is a choice and positivity is contagious!"
( Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. )

 This product was developed after a devastating tornado hit the community of Windsor, CO,  Alexa's Angels headquarters. The bracelet sets were an immediate hit, serving as a way to keep a positive attitude and to share hope with others in the midst of tragedy.
 They make perfect gifts for friends, family and colleagues of all ages, bringing people together around a mutual desire to stay positive.
 Women have connected with Alexa’s Angels designs since 1995 when founder Beth Lang first began selling her jewelry creations at art shows across the country. Since then, Beth and “her Angels” have grown Alexa’s Angels into a fashion-forward accessory company well known for its innovative and stylish designs.

The purpose of the Positivity Bracelets--
 The front side of the bracelet's central metal piece reads "posi+ivi+y" and the reverse side directs the wearer to a website inviting the public to share inspirational stories, photos, and quotes. Here, you’ll find stories of life situations made easier by friends and family members that reached out to share some hope.. Positivity lovers may subscribe at the site to receive notices when a new post is shared.

Today I received this set of three bracelets to review. I will keep one and give the other two to friends or family that I think need to be reminded to be Positive. I think this is such a clever idea. Sometimes you need a little reminder to stay positive... what better way than a colorful bracelet given to you by someone special!

Attached to the bracelets was this inspiring little card-

They come in several different colors--
