On August 19, Zoey’s very first Kiwi Crate came in the mail and she could not contain her excitement. I think she literally said “I’m so excited!” at least five times. When she saw that green crate in the mailbox, she instantly lit up and couldn’t get into the house fast enough to open it up and see what was inside. Here is our official Kiwi Crate Review!
When Zoey was a newborn, I signed her up for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, which means she received a FREE, brand new book in the mail every month up until she turned 5 years old. Once Zoey turned 3, she started to really notice and look forward to receiving mail every month. It was a sad day when she received her final book in the mail: Kindergarten, Here I Come! She knew it meant no more books in the mail, and even though it has been five months since she received that book, she still asks me if anything is coming in the mail for her.
I have been looking at subscription boxes for a while as a way to supplement the Imagination Library. When she was younger, I looked into Citrus Lane, but it seemed to be tailored for babies and toddlers more than young children. I believe it has changed a bit now, but now that she is 5 years old and very creative, I wanted to get her a box that was more than just toys and body products. That said, I will likely sign up for Citrus Lane if we get pregnant again.
For Zoey, I wanted to get something that would challenge her and keep her busy. That is when I discovered the Crates!

When author Jennifer Phillips asked me if I wanted to write a review of her book “Bringing Lucy Home”, it was an immediate “YES!” from me, no questions asked. I had the privilege of working with Jennifer as her marketing strategist at the original publisher of her book. Unfortunately, that also meant that I had to be the one to drop the news when the publisher was closing, not long after her book had gone live. She was the first author I thought of when I received the news, and the first one I wanted to personally tell as soon as allowed. Although that journey was really unexpected and rough at times, I don’t regret it because it gave me an opportunity to build a friendship with someone I’ve never met in person, and who lives on the other side of the world from me! Things like this are why I’m actually thankful for the internet. Friendships can blossom, even if you never get to be in the same room.

This product review has been months in the making! Literally, months. FairHaven Health first reached out to me last November asking if I’d be interested in trying one of their fertility friendly products and I was SO excited for the opportunity. However, as many of you may remember, I was still on my last 3-month stint of 150mg of Clomid, really hoping it would end up in a pregnancy. I decided to put the FairHaven offer on hold, but kept in contact with them in the meantime. When January came and I still wasn’t pregnant, I decided to take FairHaven up on their offer and try FertilAid for Women.
Ladies, listen up.
It’s time we talked about what we’re putting on our pits. But first, a little science lesson:
Please note: All opinions are my own. This product review was not the result of a marketing campaign and I did not receive anything free to conduct this review. This is simply my way of sharing something with you that I truly love and hope you will, too! Pricing subject to change.
Several years ago, a friend introduced me to mineral makeup and I absolutely loved it. I used every last flake of the sample she gave me before I was left pouting, wishing I had more. Unfortunately, the makeup sample she gave me was priced way outside of my budget for the full-sized containers, so I returned to using drugstore makeup and my trusty coupons from the local newspaper.
Then I was diagnosed with PCOS.

When FairHaven Health was looking for bloggers to review their DreamBelly Butter, I was intrigued. When I saw that it’s recommended for more than just a pregnant belly, I jumped right on board! After having Zoey, I was covered in stretch marks. Literally covered! From the boobs, down to my thighs, I looked like a pink striped peppermint and it was awful. Most of the marks hit once I was put on bedrest and had to keep the NST on 24 hours a day… I was no longer able to lather up with lotion because I had an itchy gel taking over my belly day and night. Thankfully over the years most of the marks have lightened up a lot, but they’re still there.
