April 2018 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: Purrrfect Spring

1.) Multipet Scratch Roller:This cardboard toy has jingle balls on the inside and comes with cat nip. We have two of these now and have these on the sides of the bed so that the cats grab this to scratch and stretch instead of scratching the bed. Luke loves these rollers! $6.99


2.) SPOT Fluttering Butterfly Mini Teaser Wand: This toy is a huge hit among all of my cats! Kaci managed to rip both wings off of the this toy that received in the box last year. So far this time around only a few feathers have managed to get ripped off. We will see how long this one lasts as I will definitely need to keep buying these as they love them!  $6.18








3.) Spot Dura-Fused Leather Butterfly Cat Toy: The packaging says that cats love the smell of leather. My cats do not seem to care for this toy much at all. $5.02

4.) Pet Greens Savory Salmon Treats: These are soft cat treats that my cats have liked in the past. Unfortunately, the ones that came this time around were expired so we were not able to use them.  $3.79

5.) Multipet Spring Mouse: Vince seems to enjoy this toy. Anything with feathers always grabs his attention! $4.99








Total Value: $26.97 We received this same box last April as well. This is the second month in a row that we have received the previous years box. We did need another one of the butterfly wand toys and another scratcher is always appreciated so we did not mind getting the same box. With that said I wish they would have provided some new treats that were not expired- I guess they did not look through the box before shipping it.

Review: TANZKY Yoga Socks for Women


I was sent these Women's Yoga Socks by Tanzky for reviewing purposes.The socks come in two colors: black and purple. I chose the purple socks as I really liked their vibrant color. The purple socks do have black non-slip grips on the bottoms. 


These socks are recommended for Yoga, Ballet, and Barre but can be used for any type of exercise on wood studio floors to keep stability and to keep from slipping. Even when I exercise on carpet these are much better than wearing regular socks as they do not slip off!

The socks are made from 95% breathable cotton and 5% spandex. They are very comfortable to wear and are stylish.

These socks are very affordable. Right now you can get one pair for $9.99 or two pairs for $12.99 on Amazon. They do have a 60 day money back guarantee as well.

March 2018 PetGiftBox Review & [COUPON CODE]!!

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

The items in the box:

This months theme: Fight Night

1.) Safemade Dangler Catnip Boxing Glove Toy:My cats like to play with the string part of this toy more than the actual toy glove part. They like when I drag the plastic part around on the ground for them to pounce on. $7.99 








2.) Leap Tail Pillow Fashion Catnip Toy: They do not really go crazy for the catnip in this toy but they do like to grab the toy and toss it around.  $6.99 






3.) Collapsible Pet Bowl: This is a great bowl for on the go for both food and water. It is collapsible and can be made into a few different sizes in terms of depth. $7.99

4.) Clean as a Whistle Wipes: These unfortunately expired the beginning of this month. I did use one of the wipes and it worked well at cleaning up throw up from my chair mat. I do not know if these would work well on carpet and that is where most of our Kitty messes are.  $4.99

5.) Loving Pets Purrfectly Natural Freeze Dried Chicken Treats: All of my cats love these. Vince loves dried meat, he is a big people food eater, so he gobbles these right up! There is only one ingredient: chicken. These are made from 100% all natural USA farmed and raised chicken. $4.99





Total Value: $32.95 We received this same box last March. We still have the toys featured in this box from last years box so we will be donating the new toys to a cat rescue that we volunteer at. The treats are always good to replenish so we did not mind getting double of those. The only bummer was that the wipes expired a couple of weeks before receiving the box. Overall, the items featured in the box add up to over the cost of the month to month subscription. For those who did not receive this box last year this would be a great box minus the expired wipes.

Review: Tsumbay Wake Up Light


I was very interested in testing out this Wake Up Light. I have used a Wake up Light before and much preferred this Tsumbay Wake Up Light over the other (well known) brand that I tested. I liked this wake up light but for a few reasons I will not continue to use it. 

First off, what I liked about the Wake up Light is the colors, the touch button, it's illumination and  the sounds. It has 7 different color options which are all just as memorizing and illuminating as the next. The wake up light can double as a night light or a night-mode lamp as it illuminates the whole room but not overwhelmingly so. The touch button on the top of the light is well responsive and had no issues responding whenever I did touch it. The wake up sounds are pleasant to listen to.

There are a few cons that I had with the light as well. First off, the lamp seemed to get pretty hot and did not hold the battery well after the first day. I did reach out to the manufacturer who said it has been tested and is perfectly safe. However, since the lamp was hot to the touch I do not want to continue using it and have my cats or myself accidentally touch it. I also did not like that all of the adjustment buttons were on the bottom of the light and you had to pick it up and flip it over to adjust any settings (once again an issue if the light is hot to the touch, see photo below).

There are some things that I wish the Wake up Light provided also. These are not deal breakers for me but just would have been nice. First off, the product does not contain a USB adapter (luckily I had one on hand). Even though there are 7 colors you seem to only be able to choose one color at a time. Lastly, as calming as the sounds were there are only 5 sounds to choose from so it would have been nice to have a bit more.

The design of the Wake Up Light is very modern. I really wish I could continue to use the product but due to the light getting hot I will not. If you are looking for a good Wake Up Light to try I do recommend the product in terms of use for an alarm clock but just keep in mind both the pros and cons I listed above.

January 2018 PetGiftBox Cat Review & [COUPON CODE]!!

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

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 helpful pet supplies.

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

The items in the box:

This months theme: Orange you glad it's 2018?

1.) Petsafe Slimcat Feeder Ball: My cats are so spoiled that they are not really the types to play for their meal. I have put treats in here and depending on their mood and how hungry they are they will try and get the treats out. I would use it more for a treat ball than a meal time activity. $6.95


2.) Oomaloo Extra Small Cat Ball with Bell: This is one of our favorite items in the box. All three of my cats love playing with this. The ball inside is a nice rattle and not overly obnoxious. $2.99 





3.) Emerald Pet Feline Chicken Dental Treats: I can get Vince & Kaci to eat these. They prefer temptations but if they really want a treat they will eat these. They are a little big but I guess that is needed to help the teeth. Luke is extremely picky about treats and will sniff and walk away.  $3.99

4.) Crochet Kitty 2018 Wand Toy: This is another big hit out of the box. All of my cats love playing with this toy with me. They love to chew on the felt numbers too. $9.00






5.) Imperial Cat Cat n Around Goldie Goldfish: Though not the most used toy out of this box my cats do love playing with Goldie Goldfish. They like to lick him and bat him around! $6.50



Total Value: $29.43 The value of the box is higher than the cost of the subscription which always makes it worth it. The fact that my cats like and use all of the items in the box this is one of our favorite recent boxes. All of the toys are played with on a daily basis.

Review: Spiex Women Small Wallet Trifold RFID Blocking Wallet Genuine Leather Credit Card Holder



I was sent this Genuine Leather Wallet for reviewing purposes. When I first received the wallet I was so excited to see how spacious it was for a small wallet. When you first open the wallet there are six slots for credit cards which are all very roomy so that the cards do not get stuck. There is a slot on the outside of the wallet for you to put your ID, once again very roomy so no more fighting with my current wallet to give me my ID when I want it! On the inside of the wallet, in the bill section, there are two more card slots and also a micro sd card slot. My only gripe would be that the change section of the wallet is super small. If you need to carry quarters, it can only fit a few of them. 



I love the genuine leather the wallet is made of- and love the smell of it as well, but I know the new wallet smell will not last forever. The wallet comes in four colors: red, purple, blue and black. The wallet is marketed as a woman's wallet but I do not see why a man could not use it as well. 

My favorite feature of the wallet is the fact that it is a RFID Blocking Wallet. This helps your information stay safe from Electronic Pick pocketing, which is a big issue these days that not everyone is aware of. 

Right now you can purchase this wallet on Amazon for $13.99 for the red wallet (the one I have) or $14.99 for the other colors.

L'Oréal Elvive Extraordinary Oil Treatment Review





Influenster sent this this Elvive Extraordinary oil treatment to test out. This oil can be used on both dry hair or wet hair. I mostly used it on dry hair to tame frizz and flyaways. I really liked this product, I thought it tamed the frizz and flyaways well. It also made my hair nice and shiny without looking or feeling greasy. The smell of the product was amazing as well. 



L'Oreal has a whole line of Elvive products. You can check out these products here. I really enjoy the Elvive clay products, which I was also introduced to by Influenster, and want to try the Power Moisture Hydrating Shampoo at some point too. 


I received this product free to test from Influenster but all opinions are my own. If you would like to check out what Influenster is about or sign up to receive free products to test out yourself: influenster.com
