July 2014 Mantry – “Street Food”

I don’t know how, but I pretty much forgot that B’s July 2014 Mantry was coming this week!

If you aren’t familiar with them, Mantry (aka the Modern Man’s Pantry) is a food of the month club that lets you discover the finest american artisan foods – and gives you ideas of what to do with them.  At $75/month it’s a spendy box for sure, but B totally totally loves it.

July 2014 Mantry - "Street Food"

The Box

Mantry ships via UPS Mail Innovations.  It starts out as UPS and is typically delivered by the post office.  However, if you have a package coming that day from UPS or they will be in your neighborhood anyways, they will typically deliver it.

The Mantry

We still haven’t done anything with all of our Mantry crates (we have a bunch), but B’s still working on ideas.  Sometimes he stacks them up in different ways to get an idea of what his Mantry bar would look like.

July 2014 Mantry - "Street Food"

The Information Card

The July 2014 Mantry theme is “Street Foods” and included the following items that will help you serve up your favorite truck-bound fare in the comfort of your kitchen:

~Three Jerks Jerky Chipotle Adobo Jerky ($14.99): Are you kidding me?  This is perhaps the most expensive beef jerky I have ever seen!  And I am sure that B will eat it up in two seconds!

Three Jerks Jerky Chipotle Adobo Jerky

~We Rub You Korean BBQ Marinade ($8): Pretty sure the name alone makes me love this!  Mantry shows it with BBQ Beef Tacos which look incredible.  I think that is exactly what we will do with it.

We Rub You Korean BBQ Marinade

~Olo Foods Olo’s Chipotle ($6.99): We have received this in a previous box and I am not sure what ever became of it.  It’s possible that it’s around here somewhere still?  I need to figure out what we can do with this that we will both like.

~Grey Ghost Bakery Cinnamon Pecan Cookies ($9): I have had these in the past in a few flavors (not in a Mantry though) and have enjoyed them.  I like their idea of turning these into ice-cream sandwiches with vanilla ice-cream!

July 2014 Mantry - "Street Food"

Grey Ghost Bakery Cinnamon Pecan Cookies

~Steven Smith Teamaker Big Hibiscus ($11.99): Oddly enough, Mantry is making this tea sound good – even to me.  They suggest adding a bit of booze to it and making it into a sangria like drink.  Umm, okay.  Let’s do that!

July 2014 Mantry - "Street Food"

~Maya Kaimal Butter Masala ($6): What are the odds that I would get two Indian simmer sauces in a week?  Not very good I bet!  Mantry has an amazing looking recipe (Butter Chicken Naawish) pictured with this and I am going to get B to make that! It sounds like it’s perfect!

July 2014 Mantry - "Street Food"

Maya Kaimal Butter Masala

All totaled I came up with a value of $56.97 for the July 2014 Mantry – “Street Food”.  I liked that this box had more “new” items than previous boxes, but I do wish the value was higher.  Another bag of that jerky or the “The Truck Food Cookbook” they are having a giveaway for would have worked just fine!

Did you get Mantry this month?  What’d you think?  If you are interested in subscribing or just want to learn more, click here.  For the next four days (though the 28th of July I believe) Mantry is on Gilt City and is offering one month for $40 (reg. 75).  Shipping is additional, but if you have been wanting to try them, I highly recommend snatching up this deal before it’s gone!

Thursday Thoughts

TTGood copy

It’s time for another Thursday Thoughts! If you want to participate, but have no idea what a link-up is, you can check out my explanation of it here.

~This week is flying by! I can’t even believe it’s already Thursday!   I think I have spent most of my week organizing / thinking about legos!  L is loving the new set-up in the playroom and has spent hours playing out there this week in his new space.  It’s awesome.  I think it’s going to work nice for homework too.  B got the shelves we picked up at IKEA hung and the little lego guys fit perfect on there.  I just need to go back and get one more shelf and more little jar containers and I think we’ll be set!

Love it!

Love it!

~I don’t think I have too many more subscription boxes coming this week, but I know for sure I am waiting on Lip Factory, Five Four Club and Hammock Pack!  And my order of  Crispy Cakes from QVC is coming today as well!  Oh, and it’s possible that the mystery shipment in UPS is my Haute Look beauty bag, but that seems super fast so who knows what that is?  I’ll find out in a few hours!

~You all know about my fascination with all these different Oreo cookie flavors right?  Well, there’s a new one out.  It’s Root Beer Float ones.  Who thinks of these flavors?  I want to be on the Oreo cookie flavor board!

~OMG I posted a picture of my Nicky Hilton Fancy Box on Instagram and tagged Nicky Hilton and Fancy Box.  And OMG wouldn’t you know it, but Nicky Hilton not only liked it, she commented on it.  Pretty sure this means we are BFF’s now!

My new friend Nicky Hilton and I talk on Instagram.  LOL!

My new friend Nicky Hilton and I talk on Instagram. LOL!

~The new snack system is officially a hit.  If you missed it I have a bin in the refrigerator door and one in the pantry filled with snacks for the boys.  If it’s in the bin, you can have it for a snack.  So simple, yet it took me forever to actually do.  L is all over it and WB does whatever L does, so it’s perfect!

The fridge snack bin.

~Speaking of WB, he’s getting adjusted nicely to his big boy bed.  The first few mornings he got up early (like 7:30am which is basically the middle of the night for him), but he’s back to his normal schedule now and I even had to wake him up at 9:45am yesterday because he was still out.  Last night he made B put his elmo blanket in his crib because that’s for “babies”.  Big boys use duvets I guess?  LOL!

Well they sort of use them

Well they sort of use them

~I painted my fingernails for the first time in ages yesterday (you should be able to see it in my Instagram sidebar) and I am always forget how fancy it makes me feel to have my nails painted.  Why is this?  I even type different with painted nails which is so odd.  I swear it’s the most inexpensive way to make you feel like a million bucks.

~My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale order is still in progress, but so far I know I am getting the Rosanna “Alphabet Studio Mug”, the Kate Spade “le pavilion” iPhone case, a Superhero Junk Food tee for L and new Keen’s for both boys. And then the dilemma comes in.  I love the Tory Burch Eloise Riding Boots and the Tory Burch 59mm Polarized sunglasses, but I am not sure which one to get.  I like the sunglasses more and would probably wear them a ton more, but I “need” nice tall black boots.  Which should I get?

July 2014 Mission Cute Box

MissionCute, who kindly sent me this box to review, is a monthly subscription box full of cute stuff, but with a mission. Each MissionCute box comes with at least 2 items made by small-but-mighty artisans and local businesses and each month they partner with a different nonprofit to help promote their mission.  50% of the net proceeds of each box are donated to the chosen monthly nonprofit (this month is LoveGrows)and MissionCute also sponsors and works on a service project each month in their community.

The Information Card

As I mentioned, the July 2014 MissionCute partner was “LoveGrows” and 50% of the net proceeds of this month’s box were donated to them.  LoveGrows is a conglomeration of churches, businesses, families and individuals who share a common vision of helping orphans in need. The box doesn’t have a stated theme (other than sending cute stuff), but my box included the following items:

~You Are Beautiful Sticker by Shawna Armstrong ($3): I already stuck this on the cabinet door in my office.  Sometimes you just need a little reminder to smile!

July 2014 Mission Cute Box

You Are Beautiful Sticker

~Love Necklace (Mission Cute Exclusive) ($22): Not my normal style, but I do see the cuteness here.  You know, I had big plans to work on my jewelry storage issue and that just hasn’t happened yet.  I am going to do some Pinterest searching before my next trip to IKEA (which is next week) and see what I can come up with.

~Anchors Canvas Tote from Who Doesn’t Want That ($6):  Ohh, I like!   This shop has a ton of cute designs and for $6/bag you don’t even have to pick just one!  This shop also does bulk orders and I think they would make awesome little care package bags for a destination wedding!

~Bee Happy 5×7 Print from BySamantha ($10): I have been getting a lot of bee / honey related things lately and I am thinking of putting to box for my beekeeper cousin. I think she’d love it!

July 2014 Mission Cute Box

Bee Happy 5×7 Print from BySamantha

All totaled I came up with a value of $41 for the July 2014 MissionCute box.  I think this box does exactly what they promise – send you a box of cute stuff!  I love that I have never heard of any of these shops before and I think that’s part of the fun.

July 2014 Nicky Hilton Fancy Box

Yay!  My long anticipated July 2014 Nicky Hilton Fancy Box is finally here!  I signed up for this one as soon as I heard about it and I have been dying to see what’s in it ever since!

Just in case you aren’t familiar, Fancy, which is $39/month (plus shipping), has a “regular” Fancy Box full of cool goodies and celebrity curated boxes which include a collection of the coolest products hand-picked by Nicky Hilton (which is their latest celebrity collaboration) Jennifer Love HewittVerbalKelly RowlandCoco RochaSnoop DoggT-Pain and / or Tyler Florence. They also offer a Fancy Food Box (which is one of my favorites), as well as, Fancy Mystery Boxes.

Fancy ships via FedEx and always takes two days to arrive. I have been super anxious for this one to arrive so I was very excited when I got the shipping notification on Monday!

July 2014 Nicky Hilton Fancy Box

First Look

Ohhh, so far so good! I loved everything that I could see in the first look and was really excited to dig in and check everything out in detail.

July 2014 Nicky Hilton Fancy Box

First Look

Per an e-mail from Fancy Box yesterday, there was an error when the information cards were printed and instead of saying Nicky Hilton Fancy Box on the front of it, it says Verbal Fancy Box. Based on the first look alone I could tell that this wasn’t a Verbal Fancy Box so I am sure it was simply an error and we didn’t really get Verbal Fancy Boxes. Anyway, here is what was included in the July 2014 Nicky Hilton Fancy Box:

~Gold Heart Necklace by Lumo ($35): First of all, let me first mention that this necklace also came super tangled and it took me like 20 minutes to untangle.  Ugh.  But it is a super ute necklace. The chain is a little short so I may swap it or gift it to a friend with a daughter, but I do really like the chunky little heart!

Nicky Hilton Fancy Box

~Classic Book Journal ($10): If I use this in public, will people actually believe I am reading and taking notes in the real book? LOL! I’d like to think so. I love notebooks and use them all the time. I make lists, write down subscription boxes and coupon codes I have heard about, etc.

Nicky Hilton Fancy Box

Classic Book Journal

~NCLA “I Only Fly Private” Nail Lacquer ($16): I actually received this color in a Wantable box, but I loved it.  I may try and experiment mixing colors with this one.  Has anyone ever mixed polish colors? What’s going to happen?  Is it just like mixing paint?  Because there are some colors I would love to combine.  I was thinking this and a red to make for a deeper coral??

~Gardenia + Tuberose Mini Jar Candle ($10): How cute is this?  Not only is that little jar adorable, but it also smells amazing!  Love it!

~Pumped Up Phone Stand ($10): Umm, this is incredible.  How awesome is this going to be on my desk with all my other mini shoes?  Are mini decorative shoes like a trend now? I hope so.  This is awesome!

Nicky Hilton Fancy Box

Pumped Up Phone Stand

All totaled I came up with a value of $81 for the July 2014 Nicky Hilton Fancy Box and I have to tell you, I loved it!  I think this might rank up there as one of my most favorite Fancy Boxes ever.  I am going to let one of my other Fancy Box subscriptions go (not sure which one yet) and I am going to keep this one!  Love it!

Did you get the July Nicky Hilton Fancy Box?  What’d you think?  Did you like it as much as I did? If you are thinking of ordering this or ANY of the Fancy Boxes, click here and get on it! You can always use the coupon code “FOLLOWUP10″ (sometimes this works, sometimes not) to save 10% on any Fancy.com, order, including subscription boxes. If you can’t find the Fancy Box you are looking for, I suggest just doing search for “Fancy Box“. It’s much easier than trying to navigate their site and you’ll be able to find all the fancy boxes there, as well as, the Mystery Boxes.

~Necessary Evil DVD by DC Comics & Warner Brothers: I am going to put this in for L tonight when he gets home and see what he thinks.  I could use a little refresher on some of the villains out there too.  You need to know who to watch out for!

~Bowser Magnet by Loot Crate Labs: Ha.  I hate this villain.  He gets me all the time!  I need to find a place to display all the cool magnets we get from various boxes.  Our fridge isn’t magnetic.  I might have to get one of those magnetic strips from IKEA and put it up in the playroom.

Since lots of this stuff was Loot Crate exclusives I didn’t do a cost breakdown on this box.  I thought it was a super cool box though and am happy to report it I recognized a good number of the villains featured in here.  I hope they stick with the broader themes because it gives something for everyone!

July 2014 Stitch Fix Review (Round 2)

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.
Stitch Fix
Cost: $20 Styling Fee + Cost of Items Kept ($20 fee will be applied as a credit toward anything you keep from your shipment.)
Ships To: United States.
July 2014 Stitch Fix

July 2014 Stitch Fix

Somewhere along the way I received two Stitch Fix boxes in one month and I need to get back on track so I am posting that months box in the month I received it. As a result, this is going to be my July 2014 Stitch Fix review – round 2 (you can read my first one here).

If you aren’t familiar, Stitch Fix is a personal styling service for women. You provide your style, size, and budget preferences, and they will send you a package of stylish goodies to try on at home. There is a $20 styling fee that is applied to your order should you decide to keep any / all of the pieces.  If you don’t keep anything, you don’t receive a refund of the fee. And if you keep all of the pieces, you get a 25% discount on everything!  Also, I should mention that you are only charged once you “check out” at Stitch Fix.  You have a few days to try everything on and the box comes with a bag and a prepaid return label so you can easily ship back the pieces you aren’t interested in.

July 2014 Stitch Fix

The Box

Stitch Fix ships via FedEx and took just a few days to get to me from the West Coast (they are located in San Francisco).

July 2014 Stitch Fix

First Look

I had looked online (once your box ships you can go to your account and click Checkout to see  your box contents) to see what I was getting this month, but I couldn’t figure out what anything was really.  It’s just descriptions, not pictures and it’s super hard to tell what everything is.

July 2014 Stitch Fix

The Information Card

Stitch Fix comes with an information card which includes a listing of everything in the box, prices, and then a total of how much everything would be if you kept everything in the box (it deducts your $20 styling fee and the 25% discount for keeping all of your items).  Just to give you an idea, my box had a merchandise total of $526 and had I kept everything, I would have had to pay $379.50 (plus my $20 styling fee).  In comparison, my other July fix would have been $289.50 to keep everything.  Here is what I received:

~Gorjana Shira Pave Circle Pendant Necklace ($88): I really like this necklace, but I was rather annoyed the chain was all tangled it when it arrived.  Grr.  I spent a good ten minutes trying to get it untangled so I could get a better idea of how long it was.  It was packaged in a small plastic bag and was then in a little box so I don’t know if the tangle happened before they shipped or while en route, but either way it was quite a knot!  I am leaning towards keeping this because I don’t want this pretty all messed up again!  Verdict: Undecided.  Probably will keep.

July 2014 Stitch Fix

Gorjana Shira Pave Circle Pendant Necklace

~Margaret M Emer High Waisted Cropped Trouser ($98): Just not a good look on me.  I actually thought these were maternity pants (don’t ask me why I thought Stitch Fix was sending maternity clothes to random not pregnant people) when I pulled them out of the box.  LOL!  The fabric is very soft and smooth and the high waist just reminded me of maternity pants!  Anyway, they so aren’t and I am guessing look amazing on the right person.  Sadly that person is not me.  Verdict: Returned.

~Daniel Rainn Daria Scarf Print Cross-Front Blouse ($74): I love the print on this blouse and the colors / fabric are great as well, however, I cannot get past the crochet part of whatever at the shoulders / sleeves.  Verdict: Returned

~Splendid Mayra French Terry Moto Vest ($148): I typically love Splendid pieces, but this is not doing it for me.  I am not into the fading or the style of this.  The fabric I can handle. But the color is like something that started out darker and randomly got bleached.  This just isn’t for me.  Verdict: Returned.

~Amour Vert Alessandro Abstract Dot Print Silk Blouse ($118): In a different style I probably would have kept this.  It’s cut fairly narrow and is long and kind of just reminded me of a beach cover up.  An expensive one.  Verdict: Returned.

I *think* I am going to keep the necklace from this month’s Stitch Fix because I just wasn’t feeling anything and hate to lose my $20 styling fee.  And yes, I realize that I’d be saving money if I didn’t buy the necklace, but I still feel like I am losing money since that styling fee would be gone.

So What Wednesday!

swwbig_zps16efcc06

This week I am saying So What If….

~I want to go on the next Kardashian / Jenner vacation. Those people know how to vacation!
~I can’t help but laugh when WB gets out of his big boy bed and skips into the hall like it’s party time!
~Every time I go to IKEA it requires an additional trip to pick up a few more things that we should have gotten the first time. #neverfails
~I was so desperate for these little lego mini figure stand things that, once I found them on sale somewhere, I ordered 100.
~I still can’t remember my debit card pin number.  Never fear, I know the Target debit card pin, so I guess I will only be able to shop there.  #toobad #sosad
~I almost cried when the Teresa Giudice’s daughters got a puppy for Christmas on this weeks episode.
~The Tooth Fairy almost forgot to make a visit the other night. Ooops! Good thing she remembered at the last minute!
~I still haven’t gotten my mailbox fixed.  Whatever.  It’s fine.
~L suggested that Disney World and Las Vegas move next to each other with “a bridge connecting them” and I thought it was the best idea I have ever heard.
~I am counting down the days until the college football season starts.
~I find sorting legos oddly comforting.  It’s very calming.

That’s it from here. What are you saying so what to this week?
