Best of October...Subscription Boxes and other Favorites!

October is in the rearview mirror but here a few things that brought me joy this month.

Subscription Boxes

Best Beauty Box - Birchbox's "Power Pose" Box - Any beauty box that features BOTH Clinique and Estee Lauder is a hit with me.

Best Non-Beauty Box - Teabox - No contest here.  This is one of the best boxes I've received in ANY category all year.

Best Box Under $20 - Terra Bella Box - Mostly because of the amazing Dead Sea Mud Mask.  

Best Box Over $20 - FabFitFun - Every single product in this box was a winner!

Favorite Food Item Received in a Sub Box - Orange Glad's Moravian Cookies in Pumpkin Spice - Nobody is more surprised at this pick than me!

Favorite Non-Food Item Received in a Sub Box - FabFitFun Umbrella - Useful and attractive always gets my vote!

Entertainment Favorites

Book - The Ice Cream Queen of Orchard Street by Susan Jane Gilman

Audible Book - The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt (An epic 32.5 hour listen!)

Movie - The Great Debaters (Everyone should see this movie, particularly those under the age of 40)

TV Show - Blood & Oil (Pure guilty pleasure, a modern version of "Dallas")
