It's Citrus Lane time again! Yep, yep.
To begin with, when I was thinking about writing this post, I wanted to mention that I have been lucky enough to have received some of my past few monthly boxes for free, thanks to referral credits. So, if you have a subscription, be sure to share your referral link with your friends. It's totally worth it. If you're a fan of this company, then by all means do what you can to share the love (and save a bit of money at the same time). I also want to mention that before I even know about their referral program, I paid full-price for a handful of these boxes when Eisley was a baby because I loved them so much. They are a company that I'm happy to promote (and, no, I'm not asked or expected to write these posts) and I just wanted to be up-front and honest about my history with them as I continue to write these reviews!
So, now that I've totally overdone it on the whole explanation thing…here is a peek inside my January box:
Duo Tip Washable Markers from Faber-Castel — I am always thrilled when they include some sort of art supply in the box. And we didn't have any markers for Eisley up until this set, so she was quite giddy! It's worth noting that this is probably the third box in the past 6 months-or-so that has included a Faber-Castell item, but that doesn't bother me because Eisley is quite the artsy little gal.
Upset Tummy and Nausea Relief from Mommy's Bliss — I was surprised to find this as a featured item this month, but I think it's a product I should probably have on hand. Instead of coming in one bottle, this box has single-serve packets that make it easy to tuck inside the car, diaper bag, and any other places you may want to have them on hand. And they're all-natural, which is quite nice.
Zig Zag Zebra Coloring Book from Barefoot Books — This was my favorite item this month, and I'm saving it for Eisley's birthday! It seems a bit more advanced than where she's at right now, and she's happy enough to use regular ol' dollar store coloring books for the time being. This book is gorgeous, though—pages are full-color and beautifully illustrated, each one with different activities for the child to do or ideas on how to complete the picture. Very cute! We received another book from Barefoot Books last month, and everything I've seen from this company is so beautifully done.
This box also included a coupon for 20% off shapeware from a company called Ruby Ribbon, but I'm not in the market for shapeware (I'm embracing the tummy situation at this point in time). I feel like when I first received these boxes, they were much more generous with the "little extras" every month (coupons, discount codes, etc.) but lately there have been less and less. Ah, well! I was still happy with this months's box and am eager to start hoarding things for birthdays and holidays this year.
If you're interested in snagging a subscription for yourself or someone you adore, feel free to use my referral link—if you do, you'll get $10 off of your order (and I will receive a credit on my account, too!). I also found a code for $20 off any of the 3+ month box subscriptions, so feel free to use this one if you want to purchase more than one box in advance: HELLO2014. Just note that the $20 code will expire at the end of this month.
