Consumer Review: Spicy Subscriptions


(Note: This was supposed to be published on Friday, however, as anyone who follows me on Facebook will know, I had quite the maelstrom of bad luck that day, the worst one being my laptop’s backlight finally giving up the ghost and rendering my laptop unusable.)

Last summer, I was asked to review Spicy Subscriptions, an adult-themed monthly subscription box. I ended up loving it. A couple of weeks ago, I was asked to review their April box, and I was more than happy to do so. Continue reading

Consumer Review: Aspen Mulling Cider Spices


I was chosen by Mom-Spot.com (the site I guest blog for…though admittedly, the holiday season was so crazy chaotic that I have been absent for a while) to review Aspen Mulling Cider Spices.

Consumer Review: MyOatmeal.com – Napa Valley Joyride

Customized oatmeal, folks. This isn’t your mama’s Quaker Strawberries n’ Cream instant oatmeal. This is healthy oatmeal for grown-ups. Well, it’s for kids too. But try going to your local store and buying instant oatmeal with currants, golden raisins, and Turkish apricots. It just isn’t going to happen. Continue reading
