Captain Mail is the lil surprise you'll little ones will look forward to each week. This awesome treat will arrive in your mailbox each week or if you choose, biweekly or even monthly. Your little ones will anxiously wait by the mail box for "their" mail to arrive. Addressed right to your little one, this treat is both educational as well as recreational.

Captain Mail is a carefully curated packet of themed games, puzzles, 3D paper toy, newsletter and more...all ready for some great family time with your little ones. These fun, educational packets are address to your kids which makes it all the more fun for them. Kids always look forward to getting their own mail.

The materials provided in each packet help promote reading and creativity and you can be sure they are educationally accurate as they have teamed up with Encyclopedia Britannica for accuracy in the info that they provide. The age range states its for children ages 5 to up to about 10. But in all honestly I loved it and Im an adult....or at least I pretend I am. hehehehe

In each packet you will receive a newsletter with wonderful themed information and beautifully illustrated full color graphics. The packets are theme based...meaning the information in the newsletter coordinates with the puzzles, games and 3D Paper toy craft included in each packet. The packet encourages good morals, reading, and FUN! It also encourages that much needed quality time spent with their favorite grown up...being their mom or dad...or grandparent, baby sitter or anyone who they love spending time with....and away from the screens. ie: computers, tablets and phones. This old school approach is the perfect way for the kiddies to learn something new all the while having fun and spending time with the you!

Kids always look forward to receiving their own mail and this packet will have the kiddies waiting by the door for the mail person to arrive.

The one point of interest that we love about this particular subscription, aside from the the phenomenal price point is the fact that they donate a portion of their proceeds to organizations for under privileged children with learning disabilities. We love that!!!!!

A weekly subscription is only $4.50 thats only $18.00 a month!!!! for 4 issues

A Bi-weekly subscription is $5.50 thats only $11.00 a month for 2 issues

A Monthly subscription is only 6.50 thats only $6.50 a month for 1 issue

We are so excited to see one of our favorite boxes again....The Bloom Bright Box!!! The Bloom Bright Box never fails to impress us! Its always a joy to unbox! It is filled with delightful, color coordinated and theme coordinated little surprises that you will absolutely fall in love with. A review on their website suggested that this subscription box is as if your best friend sent it to you....your best friend who knows you so well. Truer words have not been spoken.

As we unwrapped the box itself, we are always amazed at the amount of items that will fit into the sweet little boxes. And let me tell you they are chock full and overstuffed with delight. The box that we unboxed for this review was so well curated that we were amazed at how the developer of the box was able to coordinate so many diverse items in color connection.

We found the quality as in the preview reviews to be exceptional. With handmade as well as manufactured items. Our delight came with the crystal hanging piece that we unboxed. It was adorned with stunning crystals. The hanger would be the perfect ceiling fan pull, window decor, or anyplace you would like to see the stunning shimmering crystals create their colorful patterns. Its also brass in color as well giving it a very rich, elegant look. We love it! The other pieces like the candle with matching decor decorated matches, Key-chain, crystal encrusted ballerina pin, incense sticks and holder, inspirational cards, ring...I could go on an on.......were all so well curated with the theme of the box and color coordination taken into consideration its just amazing.

If you would like to check out Bloom Bright Box for yourself....skip on over to their Etsy shop...where they have a wide selection of boxes can also choose to subscribe to their box and find the delight in receiving a new themed box each and every month.

This month we decided to try something a little different. We received three beauty subscriptions and we reviewed each of them separately, then decided if we were only able to choose one of the subscriptions which would it be. It was so fun to see which box offered the best bang for the buck. Let us know if you agree with our assessment....and if not, which box would you choose?

Our first box was Ipsy. This is actually more of a bag with sample products than an actual box. But nonetheless....this subscription has had its ups and downs in our opinion. We had in past years been avid subscribers of Ipsy but over time grew bored with their almost predictable products. So, we had taken a break for a few years. Recently, we resubscribed to see if Ipsy had changed our minds and impressed us once again.

Ipsy did indeed up their game with this past months beauty bag. We have always loved the collectible bags that Ipsy offered. They are always soooo different in style, use and the quality is always really good. Love their logo that adorns the pull zipper as well. This months bag didn't disappoint at all. Its beautiful! The goodies that they included were far better in diversity than we had experienced in past years. To see the full unboxing with our review please visit our Youtube channel and view our unboxing.

The second box we received was from Macy's a box that we also had subscribed to in previous years. Macy's beauty box has upped it game with deluxe beauty samples (5-6) , it also gives you a coupon for $5 - $10 OFF a $20 or more purchase online or in store at Macy's which is cool extra. But the thing that we loved about this box is that it now offers a little extra gift with each box. Some of the gifts that we've received are a lidded cup with straw, beauty brushes and a few extra cute add ins that we loved.

The third box that we recently found was from Chic Beauty. Chick knows what a beauty box is suppose to be! Chic blew us away with some great full size beauty products in an attractive Chic Beauty Box and also a full size beautiful pallet!!!! And who doesn't love a pallet???!!!! The colors were stunning and the pigment was supreme.

Sooooo with all of that being said....Im sure your asking yourself....who did they pick as the best of the best of these three options....welllllll In our opinion all three was excellent this time around. If we had to choose between Ipsy and Macy's which price wise are about the same price...we would have to choose Macy's for this particular unboxing. Now as a whole.....when we chose between the three options, hands down we went with Chic Beauty Box. Chic offered full size products and a pallet for only a little more than the price of the Ipsy or Macy Box. The quality of the products that Chic Beauty offered in their box was exceptional. In all fairness the quality of the products that Ipsy and Macy's offers are excellent quality, name brand products and for the price point. You receive a good selection and nice presentation. We honestly would recommend any of the three boxes that we reviewed. But for this particular unboxing, we feel that for the price and for the products supplied Chic Beauty Box wins.
