Bean Box Review




        Bean box is this amazing monthly subscription box perfect for the coffee lovers. I’m not a coffee person so my boyfriend tried this one out. This bean box came with four little packages of different flavors. We also received a piece of candy which tasted amazing. His favorite was the seven brand but he enjoyed them all. Even though he couldn’t tell much of a difference I could tell a difference in smell. Some of them smelt amazing.

conduitcoffeeConduit Westlake Avenue is a smooth, medium blend with intense chocolate flavor.




SeattlecoffeeworksSeattle Coffee Works Kenya Nyeri Mutwewathi is light and fruity with flavors of plum, fig, and tamarind.





SlateCoffeeRoastersSlate Coffee Roasters Ndava & Ngogoma, Burundi is a bright roast with notes of dark chocolate and graham cracker.






SevencoffeeSeven Sumatra Mandheling Old School is mild and earthy with semi-sweet chocolate and a cucumber finish.




These beans were easy to grind up and as you can tell they ground up really good. This coffee lasted about 2 weeks or a little more. My boyfriend wakes up around 8 in the morning for work and then he has school later in the evening. Of course he needs something to help wake him up and keep him awake which he said these helped. Bean box does a good job at getting different beans in your monthly box I’m not even sure I remember seeing any of these in a store.

There are 2 different bean boxes which are $20 each with free shipping. One is what I got with the 4 different beans to try. The other is just one 12 oz. bag monthly or you can choose every two weeks but the two weeks is $34 monthly. The bean box is shipped out within 48 hours of roasting so you can get the best coffee experience. I was surprised when I read that it shows they actually care about their customers.  If you love coffee and maybe you’re looking for something new you could always try out this subscription. If you like one of the coffees you tried out they have an option of buying a full size container. They also have a gift option and you’re able to add a grinder with it which cost either 25 or 40.

My kitchen floor had never felt so clean before.


It even has a super easy cover for sanitizing your carpets!


I used a clean cloth on my kitchen, bathroom, and then the carpet in my apartment.


You simply hand wash the cleaning cloths with laundry detergent and air dry.

They are machine washable, but I don’t have my own washing machine where I live so it is cheaper and more convenient for me to toss them in my sink.


I took The Smart Living Steam Mop over to my bachelor friend’s town home to see how well it would do there… Ahem, Craig, you need to buy a Smart Living Steam Mop, and use it every day. Your floors were filthy!

If You Were Me and Lived in… Hungary

About: Named to Kirkus Reviews’ Best of 2012 for her first book, award winning author Carole P. Roman started writing as a dare from one of her sons. Using an imaginary game she played with her grandson as a base, Captain No Beard was born. It has followed with four more books to the series. Motivated by her love of yoga, Roman has written a book that not only teaches four poses, but shows how easy and accessible yoga can be. She has just finished the first of six books in a groundbreaking new nonfiction series about culture around the world. “If You Were Me and Lived in…” combines her teaching past with her love of exploration and interest in the world around us.
One of the most recent books we got from Carole is “If You Were Me and Lived in Hungary.” In this book, you learn different things about a place that not many people in America know much about. We all think that it’s a funny name for a country. After reading this book, you learn so much about a place you may not known anything about before. My younger brother loves to listen to me reading these books.
Review: In this book, and the other books, you learn words from the country, not just what happens there. While you are reading the book, there are Hungarian words and pronunciations like Anya (aun-ya) and Apa (up-a) are the words “mom” and “dad” in Hungarian. Our family loves reading these books and learning new things about other countries. It’s like learning a small geography/history lesson in only a few pages of a book. Not only are the lessons great, but the illustrations are colorful and fun to look at on each page. Our family loves Carole’s books and we know yours will too.
