July Nature Box .........post is picture heavy

YES, ITS TRUE I'M AN ADDICT.  No, I'm not addicted to anything bad just subscription boxes. I absolutely love getting packages in the mail. The latest is from NatureBox.

The cost is $19.95 Its really not that much trust me.  I got my 1st box on discount and you can get 25% off your 1st box with the code REFER25. The discount is worth trying it out for one month. 

Each month, your box will include 15 to 20 servings across 4 to 6 different NatureBox snacks. We take pride in picking the healthiest and most delicious snacks for you to enjoy.  You can trust that our products will be made from the most wholesome ingredients and will be minimally processed, if at all. Everything you eat from us will abide by our strict quality standards. ( taken from naturebox.com)

Here is what I got this (July) month which suggested you to Snack Freely!:
 inside the box

Zesta Fiesta Mix (Party Mix): My personal favorite so far
Sunny Trails: Fruit Trail Mix
Lemon Pucker Pistachios: My husbands favorite
Garden Tomato Crunchies: Almonds with a tomato flavor

Southern BBQ Sunflower Kernels: Just a hint of the BBQ Flavor but tasty
We have tasted most of the Box and I am already looking forward to next months selection. There will be  4-6 different items in each box and the will all have multiple servings to give you and your family ample chances to taste the product.   
Check out the website here www.naturebox.com and if you are interested use the code REFER25

Tired or What else is new in your world?

I have been working non-stop since June. This doesn't seem unusual except for the fact I:m a school teacher who would generally have a few months to relax and detox from the school year.  This summer I've spent the last few weeks preparing for the upcoming year. So in total I've had just about 2weeks off.  I'm not complaining. I'm thankful for my job in a time when so many are unemployed.

I haven't been working out much but I have been trying to eat healthy so stay tuned. I have a few new recipes coming up and new workout I plan to try this week.

Little Black Bag..Small Rewards

I think that I have been making great progress with my works and decided to reward myself with a little treat.  No, don't worry it wasn't a sweet treat in the traditional sense.  I treated myself to a new bag and some accessories.
I joined the sight called Little Black Bag.
Basically its a subscription service were you pick 1 bag from a list of designer goodies. Then they give you two more items for your bag.  After you accept and open the bag all the fun happens. Other people with open bags will begin to trade with you or offer trades for the things you have. It happens immediately. So, don't worry if you don't like the other two items in your bag(I often get earrings but don't wear them) you can offer trades or accept trades with the other girls.  You get roughly a week to swap until your hearts content. Then the bag is shipped in a BIG black box.

So I have gotten 2bags and loved them. Right now I have an open bag containing 3items worth an estimated $133 but I'm paying the regular service fee of $55.  It includes
what i actually selected  1st
Traded for this. BEST TRADE EVER.
I also have a long picture frame that people are clamoring for but not offering anything trade worthy.
