Prep Obsessed Mystery Mail Day

Yesterday I finally left the house for work and resumed my normal routine - I'd love to tell you I accomplished a ton around the house but that would be a lie. As much as I enjoyed having extra chill time I don't enjoy when my routine gets thrown all out of whack so it was good to get back to normal life - plus this means that mail delivery resumed!
 
Mail delivery is always exciting for me since I get a decent amount of packages throughout the month and yesterday was exciting because my mystery mailers from Prep Obsessed arrived; this month I purchased both "The Big Game" mailer and Valentine mailer.
 
The big game mailer promised a Prep Obsessed signature tee and five game day essentials - I always try to get the mailers that include a tee as I love Prep O tees and would buy them anyway - then the items included just becomes a bonus. This mailer did not disappoint.


Football Tee - I'm especially excited about this one because my Alma Matter's colors are blue and gray
 
Football tote - I was very surprised to receive this item as it retails for $22.99 on it's own and it's a pretty big tote. I personally would have preferred the one that looks like a football field and I am hoping someone wants to trade with me but if not I like this tote enough to use it.
 
Football earrings - I expected these to be included and was not disappointed to receive them
 
Football bracelet - I was surprised to receive two football jewelry items but I'm not complaining, It's a nice bracelet.
 
Koozie - this was another item I expected as the Prep Obsessed girls love koozies; I personally do not but their inclusion doesn't bother me. I'll probably put out a backset of them for everyone beer for our Super Bowl party.
 
Decorative block - I'm meh on this one, it's not a bad item but I just don't have a place for it. I was thinking we would get cocktail napkins or a table item since so many people attend or host super bowl parties and cocktail napkins are a pretty frequent inclusion in Prep Obsessed mailers.
 
This mailer is $39.99 - there's still some available - and best I can tell it's at least $80 worth of products so not having a use for one or two items doesn't really bother me and I'm very glad I purchased this mailer.
 
The Valentine mailer promised a pair of slippers and six valentine essentials. Prep Obsessed has been selling a ton of the snoozie brand slippers so I strongly suspected they would be included and figured there would be a few jewelry  items, a sweet treat and a koozie.


Slippers - While this mailer did include the snoozie brand I was super disappointed that it was a plain pair, the whole appeal of them seems to be the cute designs and while no doubt these will be warm they're not cute or exciting IMO.
 
Heart earrings - I had been hopefully that the glitter heart earrings Prep O had featured earlier would be the mailer but these are cute too, design varied by mailer but it looks like everyone received some kind of heart stud.
 
XOXO Tray - this is really cute but not something I need or would have purchased. We have a black and white décor going on in our guest room so I'll probably stick this on the dresser.  
 
Red and Pink Clutch - I love the idea of this but this was just not a great product to include - it's too small to fit my phone and a clutch that doesn't fit my phone is worthless to me - mine also arrived dented so I won't even be passing it on to someone else :(
 
Chocolate Covered Strawberry Lipgloss - I hate this item, it smells yuck and I will never use it. I suspect a lot of women will be passing this item onto their daughters.
 
Koozie - like I said, Prep Obsessed always includes these
 
Candy - the lollypop is cute but I could do without it. But I fully anticipated that it wouldn't be six actual Prep O products and candy would be one item.
 
The Prep Obsessed ladies did say that this mailer would be appropriate for a younger audience but I didn't think appropriate meant targeted to them. Also this mailer was $34.99 with the value supposed to be over $70 and I'm having a hard time seeing that and to me quite frankly it wasn't even worth the $34.99 I paid. I find myself wishing I had bought the earrings I liked and the cute snoozies instead. I will say that a lot of ladies have been asking for a mailer for their daughters and I appreciate the attempt Prep O made - if I had a daughter I could have seen the clutch, lip glass lollipop and maybe even tray being perfect for her but I don't think having one that's kid friendly will also appeal to adults.
 
I'm sharing this review not to complain but to be authentic and demonstrate that my reviews are honest. I typically LOVE the Prep O mailers and this is the first one I have received after years of shopping with them I have been disappointed in - hey you can't win them all. This doesn't stop my love of their store and it won't keep me from buying future mailers but now you know when I say I love something it means I love it because if I don't I'll say so. And I really do LOVE The Big Game Mailer so it was still a good mail day.
 
 
 
***This post features a review of mystery mailers I purchased with my own money, all opinions are my own. I have included my referral link which would get you 10% off your first order should you make a purchase with Prep Obsessed - the have a TON of wonderful items and mystery mailers are just a small sampling of their products. I get points in my rewards account for the referral ;this costs you nothing and is pretty standard but I like to be honest***

The Journey

Last week I had the best of intentions of staying active on social media - I was going to post everyday and make all sort of sweet and supportive comments on other peoples pictures and be inspired and inspired others. Instead I wound up facing terrible wifi and screaming at my phone until an unrelated incident made me too sick to care. And while I could have done without the getting sick part and I'm being punished by the instagram algorithm gods this week with super low visibility on my posts but I can't help but feel like for me as a person a week to disconnect was just what I needed and it ended too soon. I don't feel like I need ongoing treatment or therapy but from time to time I fall into a funk and lately that's where I've been - hanging out in a pit of not enough-ness. As a plus size woman society is always going to tell me I'm not pretty enough , thin enough, or healthy enough and for the most part that really doesn't bother me because I feel lik…

$40 Date - Sushi Jimmi

For the longest time in Memphis some of the best sushi in town came from a gas station. Everyone from Memphis reading this is now nodding and smiling and everyone out of town now has now scrunched up their face and is saying "eww". But seriously, "Sushi Jimmi" has been making sushi daily and delivering it to be sold in the little pre-packed containers for years and it is so good. Luckily for Memphians we can now get this delicious sushi fresh and it's a prefect place for a casual date night. Sushi Jimmi is not a fancy or hip décor filled sushi joint - it's in an old Wendy's. But it's clean, convenient and most of all -cheap! Here's the menu: The sushi rolls are very generous! We are able to go and split the crawfish nachos and one sushi roll so with tax and tip we can get out on $30.
The Godzilla Roll
Spicy Crawfish Nachos The food comes out pretty quickly so we're usually in and out in an hour leaving us time to catch a movie at the $3 …

Social Media and Spending (Is your favorite blogger a Carrie or a Miranda)

Everyone here is old enough to remember Sex and the City right? I feel like it's mainstream in our pop culture enough that I'm not dating myself too much with my title reference but if you're confused trust me, it will all make sense by the end of this post. One thing I always hesitate to write about is finances, but the reality is its something I personally focus heavily on and so if I'm going to be authentic here (which is my always my goal of course) its really a topic I can't ignore. And I know there's some fellow bloggers reading this now thinking oh girl, no - talking money is no ones business but hear me out - fashion and lifestyle bloggers pretty much tell people what to do with their money with EVERY SINGLE POST so while I'm not saying ever blogger should have to share a screen shot of their bank statement I am pointing out that how one spends their money is highly personal indeed so if bloggers are going to talk buy this, oh girl it's so wor…

Shop Memphis - Saddle Creek

In my house April kicks off gift season - there's my MIL's birthday and hubby's birthday in April, Mother's Day and my Dad's birthday in May, Father's Day in June and then finally after all that shopping for other people my birthday is in July. Between working full time and blogging on the weekends the last thing I need when looking for the perfect gift is to run all over town so I really like going to The Shops Saddle Creek in Germantown - it doesn't hurt that they have lots of stores I like too. Saddle Creek is somewhere I've been shopping since high school and the collection of stores seems to only get better with time. vomFASS is a really fun and unique store, walking past in the past I thought it was simply and olive oli and vinegar store but there's so much more - wines, liqueurs , whiskey, and beauty products  oh my! Also, everything is available to be sampled in store so you know exactly what you're getting before you buy. Oh, when I sa…

Mommy Lhey Little Bits May 2017

I debated posting a review of this month because they were a few issues with the May Little Bits box but I think part of the reason blogger reviews are more trusted than a product advertisement is because they are authentic - at least they are supposed to be. To me it's completely unrealistic that every subscriber is going to love every single item in a subscription so when a review is just constant swooning it seems well,. super fake to me, - and I never want to be like that. The May box arrived in June due to a delay in shipping the notebook - Mommy Lhey was incredibly transparent about the process and provided multiple updates. Hey , stuff happens and at the end of the day it's just stationary items and I think Mommy Lhey handled the process completely professionally and I have no complaints. I was very excited on Monday when I received the box to dig in and see all the goodies:   The contents of the May box with two items missing - I will address that at the end of this …
