July Conscious Box, Little Black Bag And Flying Tomato

I apologize for the lack of updates. I am going on a little holiday this weekend so there will be no new posts until I get back. (I’ll try to approve the comments throughout the day via my phone.) There are many exciting things waiting for me once I get back. For instance, my newly arrived conscious box:

Conscious Box Review

I’ve already devoured the apple-mango sauce, eaten some peppermints and cracked open the aromatherapy cards and oil. I’m most excited to try the tea. I’m bringing the Just Great Stuff bar and cucumber basil tea with me on vacation to enjoy. Everything else will have to wait until I get back. I’ll definitely do a thorough review once I get back. I also have a shipment of the Little Black Bag coming my way. I can’t wait to come home to my new handbag and accessories! Everyone has been raving about LBB for so long that I’m glad I’ll finally get the chance to try it.

So you know how I’ve been tweeting about wanting to go on a shopping spree at Anthropologie? Well, I decided that it would be too expensive, so I tried to look up alternatives. I didn’t end up finding cheaper alternatives, but I found some really cool stores that were similar to Anthropologie and Free People. Yes, there’s the parent company Urban Outfitters, but I also found great items at French ConnectionShop RucheFrancesca’s Collection – and Flying Tomato! 🙂 Glad I found the last three because I’ve never heard of them before today.

Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere just recently released her new book, Cupcakes and Cashmere: How to Create your Own Signature Style, Entertain with Ease and Spruce up your Space. As a long-time reader of her blog, I am hoping to pick up a copy of Emily’s book soon. Reviews are mostly neutral at this point, but I keep my hopes up.
