Taste for Sweet is a new candy subscription box that send out different candies and snacks from across the globe. Each of the snacks are popular treats in their respective countries.

The Cost: $16

The Products: Unique local snacks and candy from different areas around the world.

The Concept: The people behind Taste for Sweets believes the best way to understand and explore another country’s culture is through their food and snacks. This box is meant to take you on a flavor adventure around the world.

Last Selection Day for May 2014 Julep Mavens!

julep maven may

I almost completely forgot about the Julep Maven selection window this month, so I wanted to send a reminder post in case anyone else forgot. Today is the last day to choose your box or sign up for the May 2014 box!

If you have not signed up for Julep Maven yet, you can get your first box free with the code FREEBOX! You can read my past Julep Maven reviews here to see what you can expect.

Inportant Julep Maven Update

Next month Julep boxes will be customizable.  My Maven will give you the ability to swap out items from your box – it’s $24.99 per month or $19.99 with a 3 month prepaid subscription. It also appears you will have a higher value with boxes worth about $60 as opposed to $40 with Maven Luxe. It will be $39.99 per month or $34.99 per month on a 3 month prepaid subscription. You can’t customize collection upgrades. Older Mavens will not lose their ability to skip months either, but you cannot go backwards and drop the customization and just go back to regular Maven. Confused? I am!


I decided to get the Bombshell box

  • Julep Plié Wand™: Ergonomically designed to bring more control, accuracy, and fun to every polishing experience. Comes with a Plié overcap & precision brush
  • Jeanne (Boho Glam): Jet-set blue crème
  • Paulette (Boho Glam): Golden lilac tulle shimmer

With the Laree Golden pink taffeta shimmer and Mystery Polish add-ons.

bulu box

I have a new personal 50% off coupon code available for Bulu Box!

Bulu Box became one of my favorite subscription boxes to get over time. They are one subscription that does require longer subscription periods and for you to fill out your monthly surveys to start getting really good samples. I’ve been getting Bulu Boxes for about 9 months and I usually get a really good sized sample along with a few new samples to test you. You can read my Bulu Box reviews here to see what my most recent boxes looked like.

The Coupon: BULUGAN362 works on all subscriptions, but I recommend getting the annual subscription for only $50!

The Products: Bulu Box has two box options: Original and Weight Loss (I subscribe to the weight loss box). Both boxes have different product samples aimed at helping you reach your fitness goals.


Blog Update and Subscription Box News Round-Up!

After a mini hiatus from blogging, I ended up bedridden for the past three days. I am still in the process of getting better, but I will have a lot of catching up to do in terms of reviews and all the box news that’s been going on this week!

Since I’ve been out of commission for so long, I’ve also decided to extend the PopSugar Must Have giveaway by three days and reveal one of the mystery “runner-up” prizes: a 3-month subscription to Birchbox!

Now, for a quick round-up of news, deals, coupons, etc. You may have already learned about all or most of these already through other blogs, but just in case there are a few you didn’t know about, here you go!

Taste Guru is on sale at Gilt City. You can get a one-month subscription for $21 (normally $39) or a 3-month subscription for$65 (normally $103). I’ve tried Taste Guru a few times (although I don’t have to eat a gluten-free diet, I choose to try and limit my gluten intact due to other health conditions). I really liked my boxes a lot and definitely think they are worth trying out when they have a deal available! You can read my past Taste Guru reviews here.

Glossybox released another spoiler. Every box will include a full-sized Bellapierre lip gloss in Vanilla Pink.

You can use the coupon code PINK for an extra blush or BONUS for a beauty blender in your box if you are a first-time subscriber! You can ready my Glossybox reviews here.

Glossybox also released a Limited Edition Mother’s Day box! I did not subscribe to Glossybox yet around this time last year so I missed on on last year’s box, but I heard it was amazing. The box is $40 and will have $230 worth of products.
