Wonka Randoms Gummy Review

I love fruit snacks/fruit flavored candies and recently got to try out the Wonka Randoms and they were so good!

I would say they taste like a mix between a fruit snack and a candy. Eat sparingly since they are a candy but they are a nice treat! There are over 70 different shapes, 7 different fruit flavors, and 3 gummy candy textures!

Some of the gummies are filled with juice and others are not. I really love that there are so many different flavors in the bag so you never get bored!

If you are looking for a new candy to try I recommend trying these. You can also check out this link for more product information and nutrition information.

I was sent these FREE samples from Smiley 360 for testing purposes. All opinions are my own and no other compensation was received.

April 2015 Birchbox Review & Unboxing!

View my Unboxing Video and then come back and read my post :)

Overall thoughts: I give this box a rating of 4/5. I got a perfume sample this month which for me brings down the box a tad and also only two of the samples were deluxe.

Inside the box is:

1.) Harvey Prince Yogini Perfume | I do not really care for getting perfume samples since they are also small and I have way too many perfumes anyway to need any samples. I did appreciate that this one at least came with a spray top so it is easy to use. The scent is just okay for me, I will continue to use it but I definitely prefer Harvey Prince's Hello over this one. Full size, $55

2.) Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip & Cheek Stain | I like that this is a two in one product but the sample is so small I will probably just use it for lips. I will keep in my purse and also use for cheeks if I am in a pinch though. Full size, $25

3.) Real Chemistry Luminious 3-Minute Peel | I am excited to try this peel. This is at least a deluxe size item, which is important for skin care products so you can really get a feel for them. Full Size, $48

4.)  Supergoop Daily Correct CC Cream SPF 35 | I love that this CC Cream has a pretty high SPF, great for this time of year when I forget to use sunscreen on my face since it is not too warm yet but is sunny. I loved the coverage of this also, honestly it even has more coverage than some BB Creams I have tried and is long lasting! Full Size, $32

5.)  Temple Spa Peace Be Still Calming Face & Body Balm| I have not tried this yet but am interested in seeing if it is actually calming. Full Size, $29

Is this box worth $10: Yes. Even though mostly small all of the items are actually really expensive in full size so they collectively would add up to more than $10 in sample form.
Is this box worth my $10Maybe. I do not feel like I wasted my money but still do not think it was put to the BEST use with the box this month. Most of the samples are tiny so I wish they would have put a 6th item in the box because of the sizes and one of them being a perfume. I also miss when there were lifestyle items in the boxes. 

Disclaimer: These opinions are my own and I was not asked, nor do I get compensation, to review the box or these items.

April 2015 Popsugar Must Have Box Review & Unboxing!

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

The Popsugar Must Have Box is a subscription box which costs $39.99 per month, BUT all the products you get are full size and the boxes are always worth more than $100! If you love getting surprises than this box is for you!

The items in the box:

1.) Dabney Lee Dottie Umbrella: I absolutely love this Umbrella! It is navy blue with white polka dots and has a pink handle. It is so cute! I also love the quick click function which opens and retracts the umbrella for you. Value: $20

2.) One Love Organics Gardenia & Tea Antioxidant Body Serum: I have not tried this yet but I love getting skincare products so I was super happy to get this in the box! Value: $39

3.) Produce Candles Rhubarb Spring Candle: I love getting candles in the box. I can never have enough candles. This one has such a relaxing smell also. This candle is really cute so I actually won't use this one (and will just have on display on my bookcase) until I go through my other candles. $20

4.) Flip & Tumble 24-7 Bag: This bag curls up into a little ball so it does not take up much space. The idea of the bag is good but the bag is kind of ugly and is not that spacious so this is just an okay item. $12

5.) Potting Shed Creations Garden-in-a-Bag Basil: After reading the instructions, forget this. It seems like a real pain to grow this and I have cats so I would not be able to leave this out. I have never used Basil in a recipe either so this would just sit there anyway. $10

"Special Extra": They included a $25 "Gift Card" to However, the "gift card" can not be used on shipping and also can not be combined with other offers. Therefore it is a coupon and not a gift card. What irked me most is they counted this as an item that is why there are only 5 other items in the box.

For me the box was worth it just because I loved the Umbrella, Serum, and Candle. However, since they counted this "gift card" as an item there were actually 2 less items in the box than last month. In the past Popsugar has had up to 8 items in the box so to see a measly 5 is upsetting. However, I did renew for another 6 months just because I do love getting these boxes. Total value is very low this month also because I did not count the "gift card" as an item. Also, I wish they had included another food item (even something small like a candy bar) for the people who were not interested in growing the Basil.

Total value of the box: $101.00 (not including the "gift card")

April PetGiftBox Review and [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 $17.99 per month but you can cancel anytime. You can also purchase a one time box if you would like to send one as a gift. 

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 are loving their April box! Keep reading to find out what we got in our box below and to check out our thoughts on the products. 

If you want to get your own box for your pet you can use the coupon code 'codyandkaci' at checkout to get 25% off your first box! To sign up or find out more info visit

I think it is so cute that they personalize it with their names!

Includes lots of great items!

The items in the box:

1.) Pet Greens Self Grow Garden: This is an interesting item to include in the box. It is different and also fun for me to grow and for the cats to check out and eat. We have not started growing it yet but I will update this post once we do! The Pet Greens Garden is 100% certified organic wheat grass seed and soil mixture and grows right out of the bag! Value: $4.49

2.) Shelby the Hemp Mouse: Poor Shelby is covered with bite marks and slobber, and I have cats not dogs!! Easily their favorite item in this box. Both cats love this toy and they are still fighting over who gets to play with it. It is made with hemp fabric and is filled with organic cat nip. Value: $6.99

3.) Wooly Fun Feather Ball: I am so happy that there were two toys in this box! Kaci prefers balls a lot more than Cody does so she has been the one to mostly play with this one! Of course I am the one who gets to look under every piece of furniture to find it but at least I get my exercise! This toy was handmade in Nepal. It was made totally chemical free and is filled with organic cat nip. $7.97

4.) Pet Greens Deep Sea Tuna Semi Moist Cat Treats: My cats LOVE these treats and I have a picky eater so I was shocked! Cody will eat anything so of course he loves them but Kaci also gobbled them right up and then asked for more! These treats include real fish and have no artificial flavors, colors, wheat gluten, or soy.  $4.89

5.) Absolutely Clean Pet Stain & Odor Remover: This stain remover is a godsend! It works better than the Resolve products I usually use. It does not have a strong scent and it works quickly! Also a good item to include in the box since every pet owner needs this! This product is made in the USA, is made of all natural and plant-based ingredients, and has no chemicals or toxins. They also included a coupon for your next purchase of this product! $3.99

I thought that this box was put together very well! They not only included great items for the cats but they also included items that I can use to take care of them! The cats love their toys and treats, we needed the spot cleaner, and I for one am excited to try and grow this grass! Also, this box is really affordable compared to other Pet Subscription Boxes (most are well over $20). 

Total value of the box: $28.33 

To sign up go here: and do not forget to use coupon code "codyandkaci" to get 25% off your first box.
