With the Gilmore Girls long awaited revival behind us, diehard fans like me need something to fill the void now that the anticipation has subsided. When Lit Cube’s monthly subscription box caught my eye on Facebook, I knew it was something I needed to take advantage of.
My first month was December’s box, which came slightly late due to shipping issues at no fault of the company, and it was like receiving a nice big cup of Luke’s coffee. Warm, sweet and the best Stars Hollow could offer.
First pro: It comes in its own neat little box. I love that I can keep the box itself as and use it to store trinkets.
Second Pro: Quality of the items and the shape they arrived in. Nothing was damaged or broken in transit and all of the items are pretty nice quality. The scarf has survived a washing already with no fraying or pilling.
- Air Freshener
- Luke’s Take Out Menu (with information about the items listed above)
Third Pro: Selection of items. It’s a nice array of items to choose from, a little something for everyone! I especially love the necklace!
Since this wouldn’t be a true Gilmore Girls post without a pro/con list, there are a few cons.
- In this box, the OOO-BER air freshener not only seemed cheaper than the price they listed it at, but also lost its scent after one day in the car.
- Price. This box retails at $34.90 per month. While I LOVE Gilmore Girls and all of its quirky inside jokes, that’s a little steep for me to swing every month. I know it includes some great items and shipping, but I may have to pick and choose the months I can afford these gifts for myself.
I honestly think the PROs heavily outweigh the CONs in this situation. Maybe I’m biased because of my love for all things Gilmore, but I will happily shell out the dough for this box for as long as my little wallet can hold out.
As many of you may have read earlier this year, I reviewed the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 camera. Awesome for parties and weddings, great way to sent people home with a little photo of the event. Greatest part is that they are instant, just like the old Polaroids used to be.
Now there are awesome ways to dress up these photos from Drab to FAB!
For less than $8 right now on Amazon, you can get your hands on 80 (YES 80!) of these awesome stickers. So many unique designs and will definitely brighten up your photos at your wedding photo booth! My only complaint is that you have to be pretty careful adding the sticker. A little too far over and it’s sticky on one side. If you had to do a ton of them in a short amount of time, you might want to practice on a few before the real deal. Otherwise, I think these are so cute and a super good deal!
Mom’s Lab on Tomoson is giving away a pack on these awesome stickers!! All you have to do to enter is reply with a comment below on how YOU will use these cute stickers. Be it a wedding, party or just for yourself. Winner will be chosen RANDOMLY on Monday October 12th. Winner will be contacted by email.
(Winner’s name and address will be sent to Mom’s Lab for shipment)

Celebrate with a bang.
Sailboat on Sea
Pinwheel, a favorite summer toy.
Summer is a time of celebration, fun and memories. These three pins handcrafted with polymer clay represent summers past and are unique pieces of wearable art. The sizzling firecracker celebrates the opening of summer, the 4th of July. The Pinwheel is an old but memorable summer toy enjoyed by many children over the generations. The sailboat is always a soothing site gliding out on the smooth lake or ocean.
Creative ideas can come from anywhere, such as summer memories.
