I received Itzy Ritzy’s Nursing Happens Infinity Nursing Scarf in my Bluum box last month. As I said on that entry, the product, especially when compared to the one on the photo of the package in gray and white, resembles greatly one I’d put on my Amazon baby registry in black and white. Still, I’d received one that was much more colorful as you can see below, including a pattern with black, white, gray and hot pink in it.
I’ve now been testing my blood sugar four times a day, so it seemed time to review the Ultra Touch 2 Glucose Meter and Lancing Device I am using. I did not get to select the device, it was chosen for me, and this is my only exposure to using or even seeing one up until this point.
As a visual person, having one or more dedicated water bottles in front of me helps me keep reminded to keep hydrated. To be reminded, and cut down on disposable water bottles I bought this Fresh2go Filtered Bottle on Amazon.
The Pure & Simple Groovy Grapefruit Makeup Remover Cleansing Wipes were the second item from the July Bluum Box that I tried. As a huge fan of grapefruits in general I was really looking forward to trying them.
I received the July Bluum Box and inside three items had pink as a color in them and the fourth item and wrapping was a red shade. The presentation of the box was just beautiful and one of my first thoughts opening this was how two items inside were similar to items that had been on my Amazon baby gift registry – the chewable teething necklace and the nursing scarf.
As I’ve mentioned on my Walmart Baby Box Overview I had previously been a member of makeup monthly sample boxes. As a mom to be I’d seen many references on websites to Bluum, a company that has subscriptions of boxes for pregnancy to moms of children up to five years old. My research showed the company had changed a lot, raising the price to current $34 a month (though options for cheaper 6 month and 1 year subscriptions are offered), and though once allowing customers to choose the contents of their box, now they are selected for them (a much more common model for subscription box based companies.
The site asks for details on gender and age of the child and from this I knew that as a result of my child being in utero I would be getting a more generic box than a parent would. As a new subscriber I had to wait a bit to get this the June box in July.
I currently have three pairs of maternity jeans type pieces of clothing. I first reviewed my Indigo Maternity blue jeans, and now it’s time to review my Liz Lange Maternity Jeggings. I had heard about the jeggings concept years before, yet had never purchased a pair prior to my pregnancy. I had heard comments that jeggings don’t look exactly like real jeans and would be spotted easily for the hybrid product they are. I don’t think that is the case at all for these, in fact, most of the time I just think about these as regular jeans, which is definitely a plus for me.
