Mailbox Love

I have a confession– I love signing up for subscription boxes but I don’t usually stick with them long term. Long term would be more than six months. Because I will come across another one that I get really excited about and the truth is I cannot afford several a month. So here are a few I have tried … Birchbox-Ipsy-FabFitFun-Barkbox to name a few. And they are fun! My long running subscription is Barkbox which is for my girl Stella. She is my two year old Golden Retriever. Oh and by the way here 2nd birthday is tomorrow May 26th.  🙂

I do get these waves of feel guilt when I look at the plethora of sample size products  mucking up my dressing table. But lucky for me I have three grown up daughters to share with. 🙂 So I cancelled all of the makeup and personal item subscriptions after my friend shared her experience with Everyplate (super positive) and it was right after I had been shopping at the maze that is now our grocery stores. I was very frustrated because I am horrible about back tracking through the store even with a list to keep from having to do that. So, my bestie sent me a code to save $20.00 and I signed up for Every Plate meal service. And since there is just me at home I was able to get 8 meals for less than 30.00 with the discount. That was just a bit more than the take out for one I had bought a few days before. I am going to share that love just click the Everyplate link if anyone would like to save money and not have to deal with the crazy world of shopping in a maze at the grocery store and save $20.00 on your first order.  Everyplate

 

I have another confession I am going to sign up for a few book boxes — not at the same time of course but I thought it would be fun to share those with you all on the Sunny Daze  Book Club page. And if you have not clicked the page to check out what I am reading I hope you will. 

Again I blame my Grandmother for my love of good old fashion mail– She used to make and ship me amazing blankets, afghans, toys, baby sweaters and outfits and as a young mom with a growing family, it was like a holiday every time we received a package. It is very nostalgic for me, especially if I don’t know what will be in the box–and there are surprises. FUN ! It just never gets old. 

Sending you blessings and love~

 

 

 

Domain Is Mine Again

After two years of trying to get my personal iolareneau.com domain back — I finally was able to today. And I hope I will now be able to create the site I have been wanting to have where all the eclectic pieces come together so I can share my randomness with the world. (lol)

This will be a place where you can read what I write, check out my book reviews, enjoy random wanderings, and buy cool stuff I find along the way.

In the meantime while I work on the general store.. You can visit my eBay store at itsaflippinthing and poshmark at itsaflipinthing (only one p) .. Life is a flippin’ thing … and you have to be able to flip the switch on expectations, lifestyle, emotions otherwise you will get drowned in the drama.

The artist is the creator of beautiful things. To reveal art and conceal the artist is art’s aim. The critic is he who can translate into another manner or a new material his impression of beautiful things.
