I’m a working mom with two kids who loves packing lunches for all of us. The problem with the old ziplock in the lunchbox technique is that the sandwiches always get smushed, organizing the space to make other containers and Tupperware fit is nearly impossible, and if you are using ziplocks…it’s so wasteful! I always feel guilty about adding so much trash to the landfills.

That’s why I was so happy to find these reusable lunch boxes by Life Story!

There are four (4) in a set, two with green lids, two with blue lids. And the plastic-ware snaps right into the lids! Yes! That’s awesome!

Inside there are three (3) sizable, divided compartments. Perfect for packing all your lunch and snackables. But perfectly sized to fit inside an insulated lunch bag.

Check out my lunch for tomorrow. Salad, chipotle chicken meatballs and orange slices. Yum.

The best part of these lunch packs is…the compartments are air tight once the lid is on. Guaranteeing that everything stays in its place, and nothing leaks into the adjacent compartment.

All of the juice from my juicy Orange is staying right where it belongs…and it’s not getting on my meat balls or my salad. That’s important! It means yogurt, cottage cheese, and all the other juicy, runny things we love to eat will be able to make the journey through the day safely, and still be in perfect condition come lunch time.

Dishwasher safe. Kid and grownup friendly.

I LOVE these lunch boxes!

My only gripe is that while trying to separate them from each other, one cracked.

But I’m sure that was my own fault. The plastic does seem hard and durable. I think you just have to be careful not to bend it too much.

Other than that, I highly recommend these for people who love to pack their own lunches!

PINCHme Sample Unboxing!

I’m super excited about today’s review this is a subscription box from PINCHme! This isn’t like any other sample box out there. PINCHme sends samples of snacks, baby items, health items, home, beauty, hygiene… well, just about anything and everything!! So, you’re probably wondering what the catch is right?? Well, on Sample Tuesday you pick the samples you want and after you’ve used the samples just give your feedback about the samples you received to the company! How awesome is that?!

You’ll have to bear with me; this is the first time I’ve tried to do an unboxing video, so if the screen goes blurry well…. you need glasses?? OK, okay I need glasses!! And maybe to remember where the camera is set up would be good too??

The following is an Exclusive PINCHme Blogger Box. The box includes 10+ premium samples from the past, present and future on PINCHme.com. (Am I a lucky girl or WHAT?!)

I personally love samples! Getting to try items before I commit to the full size product just makes me happy! Not having to scouring the Internet to find those samples makes me giddy. Beauty and hygiene samples are my all time favorite for vacations and camping!! Packing samples verses full size products means there is room in suitcase for all those souvenirs!

Z.D Girls Tull Sequined Sleeveless Dress

OHMYGOSH Cuteness OVERLOAD!!! This is the Z.D. Girls Tull Sequined Sleeveless Dress. This dress is beautiful! 4-year-old Alice wanted the green dress because she could be Tiana; Princess and the Frog dress.  Don’t worry if green isn’t your color! There are tons of color options!! Alice wants one of each! I wish they made MY size!! I’d want one of each too!!

Colors

When the dress arrived I was blown away by the details! First, this dress is lined in a lightweight cotton. There are 5 layers for extra fullness. There is a half layer that is sewn to the cotton layer that is made of tulle. The top is jam-packed with sequins. The dress has a matching color zipper that goes down far enough for Alice to easily step into the dress. The silk ties at the waist are long enough to make a full bow. (I guess the NaNa should learn to make a better bow!)


I ordered a size 5, I probably should have gone up a size, but right now this dress fits like it was custom-made for Alice.

We wanted the dress for dress-up but if you have ANY celebration coming up you should consider this dress! It’s beautiful!! Well made and it fits like a dream. Perfect dress for a Flower Girl!

I don’t know that I would wash this dress in the washing machine as the tag suggests but I would use a dry cleaner. However, the tag reads it is machine washable or wash by hand.

WHINES

Look at this dress, what is there to whine about?!! It is absolutely beautiful!! Alice has worn it for hours at a time and if it was itchy it would be off in a heartbeat. Alice truly loves the fullness and color of this dress. I love the quality and the femininity of this dress! It’s truly a dress fit for a PRINCESS!!
