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.

Why I Blog

Years before I had an instagram account I had a Yelp account and I must admit that my very first review was a terrible 1 star review. While I think honest good and bad experiences are valuable on review sites I realized that's not the person I wanted to be. Instead of only putting negative thoughts into the world I challenged myself that for every negative review to take the time to write five positive reviews. Soon I found myself gushing over businesses I love and writing reviews of businesses I was trying for the first time. Within a few months I was invited to join the Elite squad - now I  have over 250 reviews and have reached gold elite status - this means I've been on the squad for five years. As much as I enjoy sharing reviews I enjoy reading them. I'm a planner and researcher by nature so before I go anywhere I want to know as much as possible. For example, when we go out to California we're going to have tea at the Hello Kitty Grand Café - I have read every …

Vi Peel

2018 Update: Hello Internet! Welcome to my most popular blog post - I presume you're here because you're considering getting a facial peel. Please keep in mind this is an old post and my photo quality is not great. Please feel free to read and enjoy but I do want to let you know that as the years have passed I have taken a more proactive approach with my skin care and I do not get frequent peels. If you'd like to see my modern approach to skincare check out some of my other beauty posts and I'd love for you to connect with me on Instagram to keep up with my latest and greatest recommendations.

Hello! So I got my first Vi Peel which I was super excited about. Since the Botox post was popular I figure y'all would like this too. Besides, it's well established I'm beyond any sense of privacy or shame here.
I got my first peel years ago - a mild Glycolic peel added onto my fac…

Essential Oil Make and Take

This year I've been doing a lot of homemade products and while it started off as being tired of running to the store for laundry detergent and face wash every few weeks its turned into more than that. As I researched and lookedup recipes   I started to discover that I could use homemade products for my health! I get migraines y'all and I will do ANYTHING to treat them. I've unsuccessful taken preventative medicine, destroyed my liver and stomach lining with OTC treatments for years, drained my bank account on prescription drugs, gone to the chiropractor, severally limited my alcohol and I still get them. My remaining options were: Botox, acupuncture, and moving to Colorado. But now I have hope. So where am I finding this hope? In essential oils. 
I've spent the past month really looking into it and decided I have nothing to lose. So as I was looking into different brands a FB friend posted that she was having an Essential Oils 101 class and Make and Take - perfect timin…

Holiday Mail

I love sending Christmas cards, I also love getting Christmas / holiday cards. Growing up Christmas cards were serious business. My Mom kept a book of who she sent them to and who sent one to us, three years and no card you were off the list. It's something my friends and I discuss today, seems like lots of moms ran their card list that way and now I find myself being a little less strict but keeping up with my list the same way. You would think that by 29 I'd have a pretty firm list of people I send Christmas cards to, but nope, it continues to change every year. Of course, the fact that I lost the disk with all the addresses from the prior year hurt a lot, that address list had every single person who attended my mom's memorial service or sent a card, it was a very handy but sad way to keep up with my non immediate family. A few years ago I use to think that I'd send a card to anyone that if I was to become engaged would make it onto my wedding guest list. Now that…

Lane Bryant x Girl With Curves Try On

If you wear a size 12+ unless you aren't on social media you've probably heard that Lane Bryant has launched a 20 piece collaboration with blogger Girl With Curves. With items selling out online on the launch day I knew I had to hurry up if I wanted to see things in store and try them on. 
The in-store display at the Southaven, MS location
The fitting room lighting was not great and while I'm not a fan of the mirror selfies sometimes you've got to work with what you have and I do want to be able to show you how these items fit. But, please don't judge my poor photo quality too much.
The item I wanted the most - like every other curvy girl apparently was the navy blue trench dress and this sold out online and was not in my local store. But, I was able to try on the other items I was most interested in.

The pleated lace black dress had a nice fit and I like how instead of a plain elastic waist it had a faux belt look. I think this dress would look waaaaay better …
