Feb Surviving Momhood

I love subscription boxes. Especially when they are personalized to your liking and they throw in something little for my kiddos. I can only think of one box like that – The Surviving Momhood Box! This box is incredible and always comes jam packed full of goodies for me and the girls. I am amazed at them more and more each month. The February 2015 box was all pampering and home goods and I loved everything that came in it.


I am so in love with my Threshold Monogram Pillow Cover ($17 value) and Owl Pillow! I know the owl pillow ($17 value) was most likely in there for the girls, but I love owls. This is my “cuddle pillow” as my 3.5 year old calls it. You can always find me on the couch with my arms around it. I love it! It is super cute and soft and cuddly! The Monogram pillow cover is amazing and is currently being displayed on our couch in our basement game room / media room.


These Purple Sherpa Lined Cozies Slippers ($13 value) are extremely comfortable. These are my go to slippers on cold nights – and sometimes during the day. It is still freezing here in upstate New York so slippers are a must. I love the purple, of course, because it is my favorite color. I think these slippers are super cute as well!

shower stuff

All of my shower and beauty goodies are amazing! The Casabella Bath Storage Tote ($6 value) is just what I needed for our small stand up shower. This keeps all of my shower items in one place and I love it. The shelf in our small shower is too small for anything really, so I used to have a pile on the floor. Now I have it all in my caddy! I am obsessed with my Bath & Body Works Sleep Lavendar Lotion ($5 Value) – I love the way it smells and feels on my skin! The Softsoap Body Butter Coconut Scrub ($3 value) is incredible. I have used this before and I really like the way it cleans and leaves me smelling after a shower. The Village Naturals Therapy Aches & Pain Relief Mineral Bath Soak ($2 value) actually could not have come at a better time. I pulled my neck a couple weeks ago and have been using this to soothe it. It really helps the aches and pains, just as advertised. My girls love their Disney Minnie Body Wash, Shampoo, & Conditioner ($4 Value)! They are always asking to use their new Minnie Mouse soap in the shower. We are almost out and this is a purchase we will be making. And as for the So Fresh So Clean Eye Make-up Remover Wipes ($7 value) – these are just what I needed. I was running out of my old makeup wipes and they had been irritating the skin around my eyes a little bit. These ones have not done this at all and they work great.

shower towl

The Creme Shop Skin Rejuvenating Shower Towel ($5 value) has been a huge asset to my showers! I am loving using it! I feel like it is really exfoliating and cleaning me. It is not too scratchy, which I was a little worried about. It has been a great addition to my showers. I highly getting suggest one!

Jelly Belly 2              Jelly Belly

These Jelly Belly Chocolate Dipped Cherry Jellybeans ($5 value) are amazingly delicious. I could have eaten the entire bag in one night if it were not for willpower! My daughters really loved them too – and I even caught hubby munching on them a few times! They tasted just like chocolate covered cherries – yum!


I also received 5 Yogi Bedtime Tea Bags ($2 value) in my The Surviving Momhood Box. These teas are awesome. They taste great and are perfect to relax with before bed. I love tea, especially on a cold night. These are must try for anyone who enjoys drinking tea!


As I was putting away my tea, I found a surprise in between them! A Camera Charm ($5 value) was waiting in there for me – so this was not on the unboxing video. This charm is super cute and I added it to my floating locket right away. I love to take photos so this was perfect for me.

The Surviving Momhood Box is always customized to represent you and things you like. The longer you are customer, the more they get to know you and your children. I love getting this box every month. It never disappoints! They have a Surviving Kidhood Box now, so be sure to check that out (I am giving one away here).

My February The Surviving Momhood Box

I love The Surviving Momhood subscription box! It is one of my favorite monthly treats that I get just for me. Well, I shouldn’t say just for me – because one of the things I love most about Surviving Momhood is they always add something for your child(ren). February 2015’s The Surviving Momhood Box was all about pampering if you ask me – shower items, home goods items, and of course candy. In another week or two, I will have a full review of all the products I received, but right now I just want to tell you what I got.

New Year, New You with The Surviving Momhood Box

I am a huge fan of The Surviving Momhood Subscription Box. Just when I think they can’t get any better, they surprise me. They are constantly topping themselves. One of my favorite things about their box is that every month includes at least one item for your child(ren). This way they won’t feel left out – and you get to make your little one feel special too. The January box was all about New Year, New You. Perfect for me because I am currently working on losing the last few extra pounds and getting fit. These boxes are always stuffed to the brim with goodies. You get way more than you pay for – plus you often get to try out new products you would never have discovered if you had not gotten a Surviving Momhood Box. They also have Surviving Kidhood boxes newly available that are totally dedicated to your little ones! Subscribe here, and be sure to tell them that Mama Smith sent you!

What’s in my Monthly The Surviving Momhood Box for November?

Fall in Love with Being Pampered!

I must say, I am pretty obsessed with this month’s The Surviving Momhood Box. This is my third one and I swear, they keep getting better and better – which I would never think possible! Now, this month was a tad different. The Surviving Momhood Box usually contains at least one item for the kiddos – but this month was all about mom! Wahoo! I got some amazing products:

Now remember, not every mom is the same, so not every box is the same. Contents vary – which is what I find so cool about this subscription box! There are surveys that you take along the way so that the company gets to know you and can tailor your boxes towards you properly!

As always, I will have a detailed review up in the coming weeks – once I get to fully use all these goodies! While you wait, watch my unboxing video below. If you are interested, Subscribe Here. Husbands, think holidays? You know your wife/girlfriend would LOVE this box! Who doesn’t love surprises in the mail?

Touchdown To Family Time – Surviving Momhood Box

My October Surviving Momhood Box

I think my favorite subscription box right now would have to be The Surviving Momhood Box. I love it because it is filled with all sorts of goodies for you! The amount of items always impresses me! There is usually something for your child too (although the November box will be just for mom!). Be sure to subscribe here for just $30 a month so you do not miss the next one! Make sure you tell them Mama Smith sent you! Each box is personalized to YOU! There are many options to choose from including mystery boxes (check out my review of one here)!

Here are the items I received in my October The Surviving Momhood Box and exactly what I thought of them:


Candy Land Board Game ($8 Value)

We love board games in our house – in case you have not figured that out yet. We play every day and so I am always looking for new games. Candy Land was a great addition to our collection because the girls can easily play it. And I must say, I love this version! It has a spinner instead of cards which is amazing! The cards get bent, ripped, and lost too easily with little ones. Purchase Yours Here

Invincible DVD ($5 Value)

This is a great movie! I do not want to ruin anything for you but it is a great family movie! My girls even paid attention to most of it – which says a lot since they do not like “people” movies as my 3 year old calls them. We have watched it several times already and it has become a favorite of mine (I LOVE Mark Wahlberg!). Purchase Yours Here

Leonard Mountain 4-Amigo Tortilla Soup ($8 Value)

Yum! Yum! Yum! This soup was so delicious and super easy to make! My husband has already asked me to buy more – so I did! It was a great side dish with turkey sandwiches – and perfect for a chilly upstate New York night. Purchase Here

Pier 1 Imports Set of 4 Tasting Spoons ($4 Value)

These spoons are really cool! I felt like such a professional chef using them. I put some of the soup in them for my family to taste before I served it and thought that was really fun. I also used them for cake pops that I ran out of sticks for! Purchase Yours Here

Yes To Products ($9 Value)
I love Yes To products! I have been a fan of them for sometime so I was super excited to see them in my box this month! I received Yes to Blueberry Lip Balm and Yes to Carrots Cleansing Wipes. Shop around their products here – you will love them all! 
Boston Warehouse Grips Football Grip Mitt ($24 Value)
This grip mitt is just what I needed! When I am trying to open jars while cooking, I am always using towels or my shirt to open stuck jars. I have used this several times now and it makes opening things so much easier! I am loving it – plus I am a huge fan of football so I like to rock it! Purchase Here
Monogrammed Playing Cards ($6 Value)
I love to play cards. I am always playing solitaire or begging my hubby to play cribbage. These cards are really nice. I love that they have a T for Tessa (my first name, if you did not know) and that they are pink and black. My favorite color combo! These cards are super cute and I love using them!
Essie Nail Polish ($8 Value)

I was excited to receive some essie nail polish as I was running low on polish. My daughters now love to get their nails painted and always want to paint mine too. I love the color, toggle to the top, it is shiny and pink/red and that makes me happy. 🙂 Find a store near you.
A Football Bowl 
This football bowl is super cute! I use it to hold paperclips and rubber bands and such on my desk.
A travel pack of Tissues ($1 Value)
I have had a cold for about a month now. So I have been going through tissues like crazy. Gotta love the winter weather and season for this stuff. These tissues are super cute and I love them! I have them in my purse for when I am out and about and need one.
A soccer ball, A baseball mitt and ball ($5+ value)
These balls are super fun! My girls love them! As a matter of fact, my 3 year old was quite upset that I would not allow her to take her pink mitt and ball out to dinner the day it arrived. I have since been talked in to letting her keep it on the table next to her while she eats. She has me wrapped around her finger that one…
Play Foam ($2 Value)
This stuff is so much fun! My girls love it! At first, my youngest tried to eat some, but I stopped her. It is really cool because you can mold it in to fun shapes. I can tell it will last us a good long while! Purchase here.
A recipe for Chili Cheese Dip (priceless!)

    A new addition to The Surviving Momhood Box is a monthly newsletter! It talks about this months’s theme and next month’s theme and some of the items you receive (remember, all the boxes are different!). The October newsletter also included a recipe for Chili Cheese Dip. This is one of my husband’s favorites so we had to try it right away. I made some and brought it over to my in-laws for some football and it was a huge hit! I will be making it again and again!
    Watch my #unboxing video below!
    Remember, next month’s box is all about pampering the moms so be sure to subscribe now! What a great holiday gift a subscription (or just one box!) would make for your mom or wife. You know she deserves it! Subscribe here (and tell them Mama Smith sent you!) – she will love you for it!

    October The Surviving Momhood Box

    This month, I received my second The Surviving Momhood Box subscription box and I love everything! October’s theme is Touchdown To Family Time – for when mom needs a timeout. This box was truly a “surviving momhood” box. It was packed full of goodies for mom and kids! No two boxes are the same because no two moms are the same. I will have a detailed review of all the items I received but for now, I will just let y’all know what came in my box.
