March 2017 PetGiftBox Review & [COUPON CODE]!!

Please watch my unboxing video and then come back and read this post :)






PetGiftBox is a monthly subscription box for, you guessed it, your pet! They offer a cat box (which is the one I am reviewing) and they also offer a dog box (which has 3 selections based on the size of your dog). The boxes cost $25 per month. You can also purchase a one time box if you would like to send one as a gift. Like other boxes, PetGiftBox does have a rewards program where you can earn points for free products and boxes. Also, every purchase helps feed 10 rescue pets!

Each box contains between 4 and 6 items that are hand picked by the PetGiftBox team. The items in the box can include treats, toys, and other home items.

My cats love getting these boxes! It is a nice treat for them to get some new toys and goodies! 

If you want to get your own box for your pet you can use the coupon code 'codyandkaci' at checkout to get 50% off your first box! To sign up or find out more info visit www.petgiftbox.com





The items in the box:

This months theme: Fight Night

1.) Safemade Dangler Catnip Boxing Glove Toy:The cats love any toy than tangles and that I can play with them with. This is the perfect sized toy for them to grab. $7.99



2.) Leap Tail Pillow Fashion Catnip Toy: All 3 of my cats love the tail on this toy! They must really be able to smell the catnip in it as they love licking it.  $6.99 



3.) Collapsible Pet Bowl: This could be used for more than just a water bowl. If you keep it open and do not collapse it it is a decent sized Tupperware to keep food or treats in. $7.99

4.) Clean as a Whistle Wipes: These are used to clean up messes and are not to be used on your pet! I am curious though, as I could not find any info online, if these are good for carpet or only on other types of floors. If you are familiar with this product please let me know! I have not tried these yet as luckily we have not had any kitty messes to clean up. $4.99

5.) Loving Pets Purrfectly Natural Freeze Dried Chicken Treats: Best item in the box, these are loved and devoured by all 3 of my cats. Even Kaci, who is a bit picky, really loves these! There is only one ingredient: chicken. These are made from 100% all natural USA farmed and raised chicken. $4.99




Total Value: $32.95 The value is a bit over the $25 cost of the box and this box had a great assortment of items. The treats were a huge hit and I would never have thought to buy and try these for the cats by myself as I did not think all 3 of them would like them. So finding treat products they enjoy is definitely a bonus!

The items in the box:

This months theme: Share the Love

1.) Bacarian Cat Toy:This is similar to a cat nip toy the difference is it has the German Valerian root & organic spelt inside the sack. All of the cats are going crazy over this and Vince and Luke have even fought over this toy. Even a week later Vince is still all over this toy. $7.99

Vince is obsessed with this toy.

Vince guarding the toy from Kaci.


2.) Valentine Bella Bowl: This is such a cute bowl. It is a small bowl that is made for food. Once I get my walk in closet cleaned out it will be the cats closet and I will put this bowl in there for their dry for them. It has a vet-recommended stainless steel interior that resists bacteria. It is also dishwasher safe. This bowl fits a Gobble Stopper if you have one of those for your dog.  $8.99 

3.) Love is in the air Bandana: Luke love's his military Bandana. This one is a bit bigger so it should fit all of my cats. I have not tried it on them yet though. $4.99

Kaci always has so much fun opening everything up.

4.) Cat'n Around Heart Cat Nip Toys: This came with fillable heart toys and also came with some catnip. The cats really like batting these around and if I put them in boxes they go nuts trying to figure out where the smell is coming from. $8.99

5.) PetGiftBox Love Bites Cat Treats: These are heart shaped tuna and cheese treats packaged exclusively for PetGiftBox. They were a little big for my cats to eat so I had to break them apart. Also, there is no expiration date on the package and I am a stickler for expiration dates when it comes to cat products so I am not keeping these much longer. $9.99

The cats were so excited for their box this month!


Total Value: $40.95 We are loving this month's box. All the toys included are big hits and I think the bowl is so cute. I wish the treats had an expiration date on them and were a bit smaller. The bandana is a bonus as Luke actually likes to wear bandanas and this will look so cute on him. Overall we are very happy with this box, I think the curation was great this month.

Review: Ozeri 5 Piece Knife and Sharpener Set with Japanese Stainless Steel Slotted Blades



I recently was sent this 5 Piece Stainless Steel Knife and Sharpener set by Ozeri!



I have been using the same kitchen knives for quite some time so it was definitely time for me to get some new ones. I was impressed by the packaging - it comes in a wooden holder with specific slots for each sized knife. I really liked how this holder lays down, opposed to many knife holders that stand up, as I do not store these on my counter so this way is much more convenient to store in the cabinet. This wooden holder also has a built in sharpener. 



I liked how comfortable these knifes were to hold. They also were great for cutting. I have used them to cut meat as well as produce and everything is so easy to cut. My only gripe with them is that, as you can see in the picture, meat does get stuck to the knife and you have to push it off. Otherwise, these made for a much easier preparation than my previous knives did.  



If you would like to purchase the pan on Amazon you can grab it for $28.95 with free prime shipping. 




This product was sent to me from Ozeri for review purposes. All opinions are my own. I did not receive any compensation for this post.

The items in the box:

This months theme: Best of 2016

1.) Petstages Plaque Away Pretzel:Luke and Vince seem to really like to clean their teeth with this. Luke bites at it so hard I feel like he is going to rip out his tooth. To make them more interested in it I did spray the catnip spray on it and it seemed to get them more interested. $3.99



2.) Feline Harvest Dental Treats: The cats seem to enjoy these treats. They are on the bigger side so I do monitor them since my cats sometimes do not chew and just swallow so just watch out for that with any dental treats. I do like to give them each a dental treat a day though.  $4.99

3.) Buddy Biscuits Grain Free Cat Treats: These are made in the USA with real chicken and vegetables and are grain and gluten free. These are soft and small treats so the cats, especially Kaci, love to chew on these.  $2.99

4.) PetCandy Candy Stix Catnip Toy:This was Kaci's favorite item in the box the last time we got one of these. I am so glad we got another because Kaci protects her's like a dog protects a bone. On the other hand now they are all fighting over this one. The catnip is pretty strong so I can understand why. All the cats like to lick this toy so I hate picking it up since it always has slobber all over it.  $8.83




5.) Supercat Plush Dinosaurs & Catnip Spray: My cats like to kick these dinosaurs sometimes but are more interested in the spray on their other favorite toys than on these dinosaurs. I feel like that is because it takes more spray to cover the dinosaurs than other toys so since it is so widespread they may not smell it as much. It would have been cool if these already had a catnip smell and to maybe spray them once that wore off. $13.99

6.) Tricksters Lattice Balls: All three of my cats are having a ball chasing these around. Luke enjoys them the most and will play by himself a bit but mostly I need to shake them and throw them around to get them going crazy for them. The package came with 2 orange balls, and 2 black balls. These are hard balls with bells in them. $1.99

7.) Multipet Scratch & Play: My cats are not interested in this one very much. Luke likes the feathers and if I dangle the feathers and the ball he will jump at it but for them to play with themselves and roll it does not happen. It says it has a catnip smell but I do not smell it. I am going to try to spray it with the catnip spray and see what happens from there. $7.99




Total Value: $44.77 This months box has such a great value, even if you only buy the one time box you are getting way more than the cost of the box. Even though these were repeat items it was great that this box was loaded with so many toys and treats. Even if you do not need duplicates of some of the items there are many pet rescues that will happily take these for their kitties who are awaiting furrever homes. Overall, a great box where we will get use out of most of the items. The theme was perfect for January for including items from last year- and some of the items were even from 2015 so for those not subscribed back then this was a huge box of items!

January 2017 SweetsGiftBox Review & [COUPON CODE]!!

Please watch my unboxing video and then come back and read this post :)








From the makers of PetGiftBox, SweetsGiftBox is a monthly treat subscription box that includes sweets like gourmet cookies and chocolates and artisan candies and treats. Each box contains 4-5 goodies. This is a new subscription box and the first box ships in December. You can sign up for a one time box or a month to month subscription at www.sweetsgiftbox.com.  A one time box costs $30 and a month to month subscription (you can cancel any time) costs $25 per box.

If you want to try this out for yourself you can use the coupon code 'codyandkaci' at checkout to get 50% off your first box! To sign up or find out more info visit www.sweetsgiftbox.com





The items in the box:

This months theme: My New Years Resolution: Eat More Sweets!

1.) The Crispery Chocolate Brownie Crispy Cake:I have tried this brand in the past and it never disappoints. If you are a huge Marshmellow Rice Crispy Treat lover than you will love these! They make them in all different flavors and they are HUGE. Since they are so big I ate it over multiple days and in a plastic baggie it held up well and did not get hard at all. I was a huge fan of this flavor as well since I love Brownies. This was my favorite item in the box. $4.95

2.) Theo Organic Fair Trade Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups: I was skeptical of these at first since I have tried other organic peanut butter cups before which were very bitter and gross. However, I actually enjoyed these one's. It taste's like a little bit of a healthier version of a Reese's and I noticed the chocolate cup was a bit more thicker than on a Reese's. Due to the price, I would probably stick with Reese's over these but if you are looking for a good Organic PB Cup than I would highly suggest trying these out. $2.29

3.) Bobo's Bites: Apple Pie: I have seen these at the store before and I must say since they are vegan I was hesitant since I have tried a few vegan treats before that just tasted horrible (this was a few years ago, so maybe brands have learned how to make vegan taste better). This actually was not bad. I would not say it made me crave another one- I feel like it was missing the type of sugar or sweetener that makes you need.more.now but it was a nice small snack to bring to work. $1.09

4.) Lovely Caramel Chews: I am not a huge caramel person. I enjoy it in a twix bar but am not into caramels themselves and hate all the chewing. I passed these on to my boyfriend who loves caramel and he liked them. This was also a great size bag that if you wanted to save it and give it to someone for Valentine's Day you could. $4.59

5.) Chocolate Covered Potato Chips: These were in SweetsGiftBox packaging but if you looked on the label it says that they were manufactured by Asher's Chocolate. These were SO good. I absolutely love chocolate covered potato chips. They were broken up into small pieces and I liked it since they were easier to eat and also they lasted longer since I did not eat so much at one time. The chocolate was spot on and mixed with the salted chip, yummy! $3.49 (estimated)




Total Value: $16.41 I thought this box was another hit. It is hard to say whether this box was better than last months as I enjoyed many things in each box and was able to gift what I did not want. I thought this box was great since it mixed in some unhealthy treats with some organic and vegan treats. It is a nice mix to have since not everyone likes the taste of some vegan things but it is nice to try them out anyway. My values are estimated and are online prices so the prices might be a bit more inflated in store and you have to remember that online you most likely have to pay shipping. Still I would like to see a little bit of a higher value- either an additional item, a couple of samples, or some coupons for the brands in the box could be thrown in to add a bit more value to the box. Overall though this is a great box if you are looking to try new treats.

L'Oreal Extraordinary Clay VoxBox Review

I recently received a box of goodies complimentary from Influenster to review. Take a look below to see what I got and my review on the products. If you want me to send you an invite so you can sign up and get free products yourself please leave your email in the comments section below.





1.) L'Oreal Extraordinary Clay Pre Shampoo Clay Mask: $6.99- I am in awe by this mask. I have never tried a Pre Shampoo Mask before so it was interesting to apply this to dry hair before Shampooing. It feels weird to the touch applying it to dry hair, but I believe it really made all the difference. My hair was so much softer, smoother, and shinier after using this line. I did use all 3 products together but I felt that this was the hero product. The prices are affordable and they can be found at most stores but if you only want to try one of these products, and not the whole line, I would highly suggest checking out this Clay Mask! 

2.) L'Oreal Extraordinary Clay Shampoo: $4.99 - Instead of rinsing out the mask, you wash it out with the shampoo. I thought this was interesting and probably helped contribute to how the mask worked so much better than other hair masks I have tried in the past. I was very impressed by this shampoo. It smelled great, made my hair soft and smooth, and is affordable and easy to find in stores. 

3.) L'Oreal Extraordinary Clay Conditioner: $4.99 - This conditioner worked wonders. Like the shampoo, it smelled great. It did not leave any residue on my hair after rinsing out. It rinsed out easy and left my hair super soft, smooth, and shiny.


I was very impressed by this line of hair products. I would definitely use them in the future. Along with being affordable and easy to find, L'Oreal often offers coupons for their products too so combining those with a sale could get you a really good deal. This line works best for people with Oily Roots and Dry Ends which is my problem. It says you do not need to wash again for 48 hours, but I felt the need to wash again at 36. However, since 36 hours was in the middle of my day, I did not wash again until the 48 hour mark. I felt it kept my roots less oily than usual though. Overall, my hair felt and looked smoother, softer, and shinier. They also have a Dry Shampoo for the line. I have included a before and after picture below. To get more information check out L'Oreal's Site





If you have any further questions on any of the products listed above feel free to leave them in the comments section below and I will do my best to answer them. Once again, if you want to sign up for Influenster to get free boxes leave your email below and I will send you an invite.

The items in the box:

This months theme: Season's Greetings & Happy New Year

1.) Paw Print Keepsake Ornament:I have always wanted to try one of these. I have not decided yet which cat I will do this for, but it will probably be whoever gives me the least trouble- haha! I think this is a cool and unique item to put in the box! $7.99


2.) Multipet Catnip Garden Bubbles: I have heard a lot about catnip bubbles recently and have been wanting to try them with my cats so I was so excited to see these in the box. This is also all 3 of my cats favorite item in this box. They get a kick out of these and love popping them with their nose! The bubbles are 100% all natural and safe catnip bubbles that are made in North America. $5.99

3.) Multipet Holiday Mitten: This is a cute little mitten toy filled with catnip. The cats like batting this around! $4.99

4.) Multipet Winter Katz Kuddlerz: My cats usually love these types of toys to hold and kick but this one they have not touched. It says it is filled with catnip but the cats do not seem to notice. If the cats do not play with it soon I will donate it. We like to donate toys and treats to our local shelter every few months. $10.99

5.) Spot Wooly Elf Stocking with Catnip: This cute catnip filled elf stocking toy has yarn as hair so the cats love playing with it! $4.99




Total Value: $34.95 Overall this was a great box. There are 5 items in the box and the value is more than the cost of the box itself. The cats are having fun playing with their new toys and I thought the bubbles and the paw print ornament were great additions to the box.
