Get the Outdoor Gear You Need with a Monthly Subscription to Alpha Outpost--The Marooned Box Edition #spon

*DISCLOSURE* Thank you to Alpha Outpost for providing product samples in order to facilitate this post.  All thoughts are strictly my own. 

It's pretty much summer here on the Texas coast and that means it's time to get outside!  We love doing anything that gets us outside...from fishing to hiking, kayaking to camping, we LOVE being outdoors!  Spending so much time outdoors means we are always on the lookout for gear that helps us enjoy the things we love in a safe and healthy way and if they add a little convenience, that's definitely a good thing!  Alpha Outpost is an amazing company that offers super awesome and useful outdoor gear in a monthly themed box. 


This month's theme is the Marooned Box which focuses on essential gear in case you get lost while exploring:

Check out the goods:

Backpack-Style Dry Bag


Diving Flashlight

(Note: We had issues getting our flashlight to work.  I contacted Alpha Outpost and they offered to ship a replacement out asap.  Awesome customer service!!)

Float-able Keychain

Whistle

Signal Mirror


Marooned Patch

Marooned Info Card


This month's Marooned Box is full of life-saving potential in case you get stranded out there!  It's always best to be prepared and this box will help you add the gear you need to do just that!

Being a member of Alpha Outpost has lots of fun and useful perks.  They offer life-saving training tips via magazine articles and videos.  The gear they offer is great quality and every item in this box is something we would use...the sure sign of the perfect subscription box!

Alpha Outpost boxes are $54.95/Mo+S/H and worth every penny in my opinion! Plus, members get past boxes for $39.95, so you can catch up on all the cool gear you've missed.

GoDog Toys Make Spring Playtime Fun! #spon

*DISCLOSURE* Thank you to GoDog for providing product samples in order to facilitate this post.  All thoughts are strictly my own. 

GoDog is your one stop shop for all of the goodies to get your pup active and keep them entertained all spring long!  Check out a few of our favorites from a couple of GoDog's product lines:


Sonic Stick:

The goDog® Sonic Stick™ is a unique “stick” with lights and fun sound for interactive play! The light makes the stick easier for your dog to track day or night! The Sonic Stick is made from a soft and durable material that is safe for teeth and gums. One size for all breeds and weights. Available in bright yellow, a color that is easy for you and your dog to see! 


Our pups weren't really big on the lights and sounds, but they did love to chew on this cool toy.  The kids, on the other hand, loved the lights and sounds, lol!  The Sonic Stick is super durable and I have no doubt it will last quite awhile, even with our super chewers!


GoDog plush toys are made with bubble plush and lined with Chew Guard Technology™, which means these toys stand up to tough play. Minimal stuffing gives these toys a fun "floppy" feel that dogs love!  They come in two sizes with small toys having squeakers and large toys having grunters.


Jessie and Harley loved both of their plushies from GoDog!


Spoil your pups with an awesome toy from GoDog this Spring!

Loved + Blessed: A Christian Faith-Based Subscription Box May Edition #spon

**Complimentary products received in exchange for our honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**

We recently had the chance to review the May box from Loved + Blessed:


Loved + Blessed is a Christian faith-based subscription box service that delivers a box of encouragement right to your door each month.


Each box revolves around a central theme and comes with a mini poster, a sticker, a purse-sized scripture card and a gift.

The theme for the May box was Vessel:


 The scripture card this month featured 2 Timothy 2:20-21 "But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.  If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work."


The special gift for May was a Message in a Bottle Kit:




This box also included an encouragement kit to pass along to a friend:


I definitely think there is room for Loved + Blessed in the subscription box market and I love that their mission is to deliver encouraging products that support a fantastic message!

If that wasn't enough, Loved + Blessed gives a portion of the proceeds of each box sold to Union Rescue Mission, a charity that offers hope and healing to the homeless.  What an amazing cause!

For just $15.99/month + $4 shipping and handling in the US, you can get your Loved + Blessed box or gift someone else with this monthly dose of encouragement today!

Toss, tug-of-war, fetch, cuddle are all options with this inventive dog toy with crinkle sounds to add to the excitement. The checkered texture appeals to dogs, and with a knotted rope inside makes it even toughed for your pup to toss it for themselves or you can hurl it for a fun game of fetch.


TrustyPup offers longer lasting toys that are cuddly, colorful and fun! These soft plush toys are made more durable with Chew Guard Technology™.  Chew Guard Technology™ adds a tough and durable lining to soft plush toys.

HearDoggy! Toys Make Quiet Time Playtime! #spon

*DISCLOSURE* Thank you to Hear Doggy! for providing product samples in order to facilitate this post.  All thoughts are strictly my own. 



Any pet lover knows that dogs love the feel and sound of “squeaky” toys, but enduring the high-pitched repetition in the wee hours of the night can drive any pet-parent crazy!   Ultrasonic HEAR DOGGY!® toys are made with a squeaker ONLY your dog can hear.  Hear Doggy! plush toys give your pet the same sensation and enjoyment of traditional squeaky toys without the irritating noise. 


The science behind Hear Doggy!: 
Dogs can hear sounds at a higher frequency (0 to 45 KHz) than humans (0 to 20 KHz).  Tuned to an ultrasonic range in the 24-28 KHz frequency, each Hear Doggy! squeaker is out of human hearing range, but still fun for your four-legged friend.


These sturdy characters are made with Chew Guard Technology™ a manufacturing process that adds a tough, durable liner to every toy. The reinforced seams and specially engineered lining were made to withstand the rigors of a dog's play. Dogs are tough but Chew Guard™ is tougher!


Harley loves the Hear Doggy toys.  She is a bit of a rough chewer, so in order to make them last she only gets to play with them under supervision, but she is a huge fan!  I love that she gets so much enjoyment out of them and I don't have to put up with a barrage of squeaking while she chews:)
