Parent Cabin Sample Box Review

~~~I was invited to create a Parent Cabin Sample Box review in exchange for an early admission into the club.  My reflections are my own  you can also join the club now for free~~~

This is my Parent Cabin sample box review.  I received the box free, but so can you!  Parent Cabin is a cool company that sends samples of products to its members to try for free!  

Parent Cabin Sample Box review

The process is pretty simple.  You log on to the website here.  Next, you make an account and create a profile.  After creating your profile you fill out a little survey to see what samples are available for you to try.  There are many samples for expecting moms and a growing collection of samples for current parents.

Once you complete your survey you see the products you can choose to sample.  Finally, you can select up to 6 products to try.  Of the products listed, I chose only products I was interested in trying.  I loved getting to select my own samples because I know I will use them and they won’t go to waste.  For example, there was a sample of formula that I declined as my baby doesn’t take formula.

Here are the samples I requested and received from Parent Cabin.

Blue Lizard sunscreen.  

Blue Lizard sunscreen Parent Cabin Sample Box

This sunscreen was recommended by my doctor for Little A since he has such fair skin.  This Australian product is gaining popularity in the US after finding success in the thinning ozone of Australia.  I was super excited that the little sample came with a $4 off coupon!  This is definitely something I will use!

Growth Chart from Americord Blood Bank Registry.

Another sample I received is this cute growth chart from Americord Blood Bank registry.  I am super excited to start tracking Little A’s growth with this cute giraffe!  I know a lot of people mark their kid’s height on door frames, but we live in an apartment so this chart is perfect!

Explore Cuisine Organic Chickpea Spaghetti.

Pasta Parent Cabin Sample Box review

The final item I received was Explore Cuisine Organic Chickpea Spaghetti.  I love chickpeas and this gluten-free pasta was pretty tasty!  It got a little mushy when cooked and then added to the sauce but the flavor was fine.  My husband, who doesn’t like chickpeas, even said it was good and that he would eat it again.   I have several family members who are gluten-free so I am excited to share this pasta with them!!

Let Your Guard Down | Just Play The Game

Let your guard down and just play the game

Let Your Guard Down and Just Play the Game.

I love board games. I like winning them but mostly I like the social time and the challenge of a good game.  For a long time, I have struggled with social anxiety. I have a deep fear that if I make one wrong move during a social situation people will hate me.  This is especially prevalent when it comes to games.  I worry if I enjoy games the way I like to people will never invite me to play again.  You may be able to relate to this and know how hard it is to enjoy yourself when you never let your guard down.  Recently people close to me have been encouraging me to just play the game and not worry what others think.

Honor your goal

“Honor your goal” stay consistent and achieve your goals!

Are you having trouble working towards your goals every day?  As you may know, I have a lot of goals, always have.  It took me years of struggling to make improvements in my life.  I just could not get the traction I needed to meet my goals.  After years of trying I found a way that worked for me, but I wish I had learned the “honor your goal” concept back then.  It would have saved me a ton of time and grief!
