Citrus Lane is a subscription box for babies, toddlers and preschoolers. Each box is personalized for the stage your child is in. It starts at $29 a box and decreases the longer you subscribe. This box is personalized for 3 year old Pearl.
Citrus Lane also has a shop where you can purchase products. I’ve had great experiences with their customer service and shipping services.
Pizza Stacker – Value $15?
Little Hoot Book – $6.95
Plum Organics Jammy Sammy in Apple Cinnamon – Approx Value $0.75
Melissa & Doug Princess Stamp Set – Value $9.95
Total Value – Approx $33
Overall, I was a little underwhelmed this month. There were so few items and the value is not as great as I would hope. I also feel like the stamps are a little ahead of where Pearl is right now, especially since it says 4+ on them. I was hoping for a more customized box but it’s not terrible. I’m sure we will use all these things. Pearl actually already ate the Jammy Sammy and I had some and it was definitely delicious and the highlight of this box.

This was the first month I tried Ipsy. I’ve heard a lot of great things about them so I thought I’d try it out for myself. And it’s only $10 a month.
It’s my understanding that they send a makeup bag every month and I really liked the one they sent this month. That little bag can hold a lot more than it seems like it would be able to.
Bumble and Bumble All-Style Blow Dry -.5 oz, Approx Value $3
Nourish Organic Eye Cream – .5 oz, Approx Value $8
NYX Butter Lip Balm in Parfait – Full Size, Value $4
Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara – .1 oz, Value $8
Crown Infinity Crease/Shadow Brush – Value $17.50, can buy for $6.99
Total Value (with discounted brush) – $29.99
Overall, I thought this was a great bag. I love that most everything is a staple in my beauty routine and I’ll be able to use all of it. That is really what I look for in the subscription boxes I get.

Little Passports is a subscription box geared toward kids and teaching them about the world. They have 3 different subscriptions: The Early Learners for ages 3-5, The World Edition for ages 5-10, and The USA Edition for ages 7-12. I’m reviewing The Early Learners.
The first box has everything you need to get started with the program and it all comes in an adorable kid-size suitcase.
Also included are:
A Passport to the World which is also a book with activities
Stickers for the passport and suitcase
A luggage tag
A map of the world
Pearl was over the moon about that little suitcase and all the stickers inside! She carried it around with her all day. Pearl will be 3 next week but I still feel like this is a little too advanced for her so I’m not sure if I’ll stick with this or not. But overall this seems like a great subscription and would be so fun for kids who understand it a little more.
The subscription starts at $14.95 a month and decreases the longer you subscribe. Click here to go to their website and use the code CHEER15 for a 15% discount on your order!

Don’t you just love Birchbox? It’s one of my favorite subscription boxes. It’s always pretty and always has great items. This month’s did not disappoint. Each month you get a variety of sample beauty products for $10 a month.

Odiz Baby Supply is a subscription box geared towards babies. They make sure the products they sell are BPA, PVC and Lead free so they’re good for your baby. They have 3 or 6 month subscription options for their Mystery Box. Each box is hand-picked and gift wrapped based on the age, gender and developmental stage of your baby.

This box is great for essentials for your baby and gives you a pretty good value for the items inside, but it would be nice if they threw in a toy every once in a while. Another negative is that you can’t subscribe month-to-month, it’s only 3 or 6 months. I’m glad I tried this box but I probably won’t resubscribe. If you’re interested, you can visit their site and see what products they sell along with their mystery box options.
