The Grill Masters Club Subscription Box

We love letting you know about fun and exciting new food subscription boxes. That’s why today we will be discussing the Grill Masters Club. Summer is the perfect time for grilling and we all know that food taste better with seasonings and spices. The products in the monthly subscription box are high-end BBQ products designed to make your grilled food taste the best.

The cool thing about this box is that it isn’t just for experts. Maybe you are new to grilling, and that’s perfectly fine, because each box also includes tips and information on how to achieve the perfect flavor with the ingredients in the box. It’s nice that the creators of the box thought about everyone and not just the professionals.

The curated sauces that are included in each box are enough to justify the subscription, but the extras are what really make this box stand out. In each box you will get a sauce, a rub, a chef’s choice item, wood chips, and a product info card. We haven’t seen a food based subscription subscription with this much value in a long time. We are happy with our box and can’t wait to see what the future holds for this unique subscription service!

The Best Essential Oil Diffuser

Essential Oil DiffuserThere are plenty of options on the market for essential oil diffusers. This can make it pretty difficult to find the right one for you. When dealing with essential oils I have found that having a diffuser that is easy to use, reliable, and affordable is the best way to go.

There are some companies that are offering essential oil diffusers that go above the hundred dollar price mark, I find this crazy when there are perfectly good alternatives available that cost a fraction of that price. It is best to keep things simple when looking for an oil diffuser to make a part of your home.

I have tried multiple diffusers, and after testing them out, there is one that stands out from the rest. The VicTsing Essential Oil Diffuser is reasonably priced, works every time without fail, looks great and modern, and most importantly it does a great job at diffusing oils.

Essential Oil DiffuserMy official review of this diffuser is as follows: “I bought this as my first ever essential oil diffuser, so I was not really sure what to expect. I loved the modern design of this oil diffuser. Compared to the ones that I have seen in stores, it is superior in design. When it arrived I was a little surprised that it is all plastic, it looks like real wood, but is plastic. However, it is built well and functions perfectly. It was super easy to learn to use and has great safety features that turn it off when the water is all gone. It also looks better than in the images in my opinion. The images on here make it look dark and almost like a black colored wood pattern, however in actuality it is more brown. I will attach a photo to show what mine looks like. Overall, if you are looking for a great looking oil diffuser that does exactly what it claims to do, get this one!”

So to sum up, you don’t need an expensive diffuser to get the job done! Don’t fall for marketing tricks that some companies try to use. Based on my experience using essential oils, this is the one to go with! Click here to get a great deal on this diffuser!

Swinger Box is a monthly subscription box that you can have delivered right to your doorstep! The box itself will contain some really vital golf swag and there are also some neat perks of being a member, such as a 30% discount when you shop in the Swinger Box online store.

Atman Tea Co. Relaxes The Body

I have the pleasure of smelling the relaxing aromas of the tea from Atman Tea Co. as I write this. The smell reminds me of a health spa and I find my mind drifting to scenes of zen gardens. In this day and age it is more important than ever to take a few moments to relax and enjoy life. The Atman Tea Co. promises a stress-free experience when you drink their teas.

The brand itself is focused on providing a product that is beneficial to the customer. I am also happy to report that their teas are completely all natural and organic. I drink a lot of tea and have found that more and more companies try to trick their customers into thinking that they are getting a wholesome product, but in truth they are tricking them into buying processed ingredients. The Atman Tea Co. is very transparent and honest with their customers, so you don’t have to worry about the quality of the ingredients.

They also take the frustration out of making a cup whole-leaf tea by packaging their teas in biodegradable pyramid tea bags. There is much to be said about a company that takes special care of their product and customers to provide an all-around unique experience. Their teas are hand blended, that means a machine isn’t preparing your blend for you, and their whole business is personable. If you are looking for a product to help you relax, look no further. I highly recommend checking out their website for more information.

5 Super Fast Book Reviews

If you are in a hurry and need to decide if you should read a book, then consider one of these. We have condensed the reviews into simple statements that will help you find your next great read…or not.

 

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay by J.K. Rowling

Being a huge fan of the original Harry Potter series and having not seen the movie for this screenplay, I was not sure what to expect. The artwork that was included was very well designed and had a cool tie-in with the story, so I really enjoyed that aspect of this book. The story, on the other hand, was very fast and did not seem developed to me. I was glad to get another story in the same world as Harry Potter, but the character of Newt was VERY underdeveloped. The character of Jacob really had personality and felt developed, in comparison to Newt it just didn’t make a lot of sense…after all, Newt is the main character. Overall, it was a good story and I am sure the movie is great too, just don’t expect anything close to the originals

 

Tales of the Peculiar by Ransom Riggs

Wow! I have been away from the Peculiar Children series for a while now, having finished them as they were released, so to discover this gem of a book was fantastic. I really enjoyed the majority of the stories and found that the illustrations were perfect, they really matched the stories well. It is not a very long book and is in some ways more of a collectors or fan item, but overall I am glad that this is out in the world! I hope that there will be more to come.

 

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

I really liked this book! When it came time to give it a rating, it was no question that I would give it 5 stars! The characters are all very dynamic and keep you interested in the story and their individual well-being. Even the villain characters have such a strong personality that is built with great backstory weaved into the main story that it is hard not to like them for what they are. This author did a fantastic job creating an action packed and intense world that the reader grows to care for. I highly recommend this book.

 

The View from the Cheap Seats: Selected Nonfiction by Neil Gaiman

I highly recommend that you get or listen to the audiobook version of this book, or at least have both. I read about half of this book and listened to the other half. I enjoyed hearing Neil read his own words, they came to life in a way that they didn’t when I simply read them. There were many pieces of writing in this book that I didn’t understand much about, but the ones where I knew what he was talking about were very fun to listen to. I discovered more books to read (when will my TBR ever end?) thanks to Neil’s recommendations and I think it is an admirable thing of him to recommend artist and authors who perhaps don’t get the amount of credit that they should. His words are powerful and carry deep meaning, his personality somehow seeps slowly through the words and onto the pages, and this book leaves a lasting impression.

 

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Parts 1 & 2 by J.K. Rowling

This book is the script for the new stage play based on the world of Harry Potter. Go into this book knowing that and you will very much enjoy it. I knew that it was written as a script, so I was not disappointed to see how it was written. I always find that dialogue is my favorite part of most all stories, so to have a book of basically nothing but dialogue (and the occasional stage direction / setting info) worked out great for me. It is a fast read compared to some books due to the nature in which it was written. I found my mind filling in bits and pieces of the imagery all by itself due to my previous knowledge of the books and movies. If you’ve ever watched a Harry Potter movie, then your mind will fill in most of the details all by itself. The lack of descriptions was not an issue for me and I don’t think it would be for anyone familiar with the world in which the story is set. It was great to get to check in on some of my favorite character’s lives and gain a whole new perspective on some characters. I found myself really enjoying the two new and most notable characters. I really liked it for what it is and I think everyone who reads it should appreciate it for what it is rather than what they “want” or “expect” it to be.

Library Of Souls by Ransom Riggs Book Review

Library Of Souls by Ransom Riggs Book ReviewLet’s start from the beginning with this book. The first two novels were brilliant and told the in-depth story of Jacob and all of the other brilliant Peculiars. This book was no exception to the greatness that is the writing by Ransom Riggs.

The book cover is terrifying and enchanting all at the same time. Featuring a winged Peculiar that begs the reader to learn more about the story by reading. There were many great points about this book and only a few things that I would have changed. Let’s start with the things that I would have changed.

There were a few times during my reading where I felt that there was too much unnecessary detail and the story was dragging on to reach an over 450 page count. I am not sure why Ransom Riggs felt the need to prolong this story in a way that seemed to sluggishly creep on at times, but it did happen.

Aside from the slow storyline at times and the few needless details, the only other thing that I would have changed was some of the photos. The majority of the photos were absolutely stunning and added so much to this already haunting series, but there were a few of the photos that didn’t fit the story very well and made me think that Ransom just saw a cool photo and forced the story to change a little to incorporate that photo. I didn’t get this feeling as much with the first two books.

Now on to the plethora of things that I LOVED about this book. First of all, the story has a great beginning, middle, and end. Second, the characters only get better and better in this book. If you loved Jacob and Emma before, you are sure to be even more attached to them in this addition to the series because their characters are even better than ever. I also really enjoyed the change in setting. Ransom was somehow able to create a completely and utterly dreadful setting that you can’t help but fall in love with. How is this possible? Excellent story telling, that’s how!

Overall, this book is one of my all time favorite books! No book is perfect, but this one comes pretty close! It took me a while to read, but then again, now that it’s over I wish I had more of it! Ransom Riggs is a very proficient writer and legendary story teller that our generation should be very proud of. I highly recommend this book and without any hesitation I give it a five star rating!

Send Me Gluten Free Subscription Box – October

Send Me Gluten FreeWhat would you save every month you could have healthy food delivered to your doorstep? Well that is exactly what Send Me Gluten Free does. Some things that I know for sure when I open a box from Send Me Gluten Free is that the food will be fresh, healthy, and taste amazing. This month was no exception!

This months box included pasta, soy goodies, and a variety of delicious sugary treats. It is always fun to guess what will be in this month’s box. The variety that is included in this particular monthly subscription box surpasses that of most of its competitors. There are very few companies, much less subscription box services, that offer this level of quality and dependability.

If you were looking for a subscription box, or a way to try new healthy gluten-free foods, then do not hesitate to try this company’s product. Every month they consistently deliver a variety of hand-picked food and snacks that you can count on being good for you and tasting good. My favorite thing out of the box this month was the different assorted candy choices. You never really know what is going to be in your box, just that it will be good for you. For me that is something that I think we all should support and demand of other businesses and companies that take healthy food lYou never really know what is going to be in your box, just that it will be good for you. For me that is something that I think we all should support and demand of other businesses and companies that take healthy food lightly.

Send Me Gluten Free is not just a contender in the subscription box market, but they are a standard that all companies should strive to achieve. For more information or to subscribe, check out their website at www.SendMeGlutenFree.com.

Bocandy Subscription Box

Bocandy Subscription BoxWho doesn’t love trying international candy? I was lucky enough to discover one of the very best international monthly subscription boxes for candy, and the service goes by the name of Bocandy. I decided to give this box a try because it promises a nice variety of candy from around the globe.

The first thing that I noticed about the box when it arrived was how great the packaging design was. It was a simple design that fit perfect with the candy selection inside of it. I couldn’t help but try a little of everything and there wasn’t a single item in the box that didn’t taste amazing. There is clearly a lot of thought that goes into the candy selection for each box.

Something else that was really nice about this box was that it had a few bigger candies inside of it, but there were a ton of little pieces of candy in the box too. That means you get to share some of the international sweets that come in your box (if you want to). The whole idea for this box is brilliant and well thought out. Bocandy is a brilliant subscription box that lives up to it’s promises. For more information or to subscribe, check out their website at www.Bocandy.com.

The Handy Box Subscription Box

Handy Box Subscription BoxMost subscription boxes contain food or snacks delivered to you once a month. We found a really unique box that provides you with handy tools to help you around the house and with projects. The Handy Box is a very cool idea, it’s a box sent to you once a month containing tools and products that can help you around your home.

In The Handy Box that we received that were some really awesome and practical items. The furniture markers are something that we use frequently and run out of all the time, so to get some of those was a relief. One of the coolest items in the box was the 3x magnifier with 12 LED’s. It’s basically a large magnifying glass with built in lights to help you see in dark situations.

As far as the value, this box will give you more value than the price tag for the subscription. This is a box that I could see subscribing to for a father or grandfather as a gift, but also a box that can be used by literally anyone because there are times in all of our lives when we need tools to make things easier.

This is a one of a kind subscription box that exceeded my personal expectations. I’ve tried to guess at what is inside of a box before for food subscription boxes, and that can sometimes be easy based on the regular content that is sent out in the boxes, but there is no way for me to even begin guessing with this box. It’s sure to be a surprise every time!

Mitten Crate Subscription Box

Mitten Crate Monthly Subscription BoxMitten Crate is a monthly subscription box that is different from other food subscription boxes because their aim is to provide you with foods that are the pride of Michigan. We decided to give their subscription box service a try and taste some of the gourmet offerings that are included in the box.

The first thing that we noticed about the boxes that we tried is that they were heavy! This is always an awesome sign when getting a subscription box, it generally means that the samples included in the box will be good sized. Imagine our surprise when we opened the boxes and there were not any samples at all! That’s right, the food products included in the Mitten Crate are full sized products.

It’s rare that there would be a subscription box service that ships out full sized products, but what is even more rare is that all of the products are genuinely unique and taste great. We appreciate the diversity that the food in this box brings, and the deeply rooted connection to Michigan taste that is emanated in each and every bite of the food shipped to you.

We tried a little of everything and have to admit that the foodies in Michigan are on to something big! The tastes were all uniquely individual and left a lasting impression on our tastebuds. Though, my personal favorite was the Beau Bien apple mustard. I tried the apple mustard on a spicy black bean veggie burger and the combination was out of this world. The curators of this box have done a fantastic job at bringing the best that Michigan has to offer to the world.

You can get a single box or subscribe to their monthly service at MittenCrate.com
