Go On an Island Adventure with August's Date Night In Box! #DateNightInBox #Partner

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


Time for the August Date Night In post!  In case you missed last month's post, I have found a super fun company that is the perfect tool to strengthen your relationship with those you love!  Date Night In Box!  This awesome subscription service offers monthly boxes of goodies revolving around a central theme.  The activities and products in the box are meant to be used to provide you and your partner with a fun date night in each month.  What better way to connect with your partner than by sharing a new experience together in the comfort of your own home?  Check out our August Date Night In Box:


This box's Island Adventure theme takes you on a fun tropical journey! It includes items to set the mood, games, authentic snacks, a handy dandy guide to help plan your Date Night In and more!

The included guide is full of great info.  It walks you right through the date, step-by-step.


Time to set the mood!  This box included a make-your-own candle:



This craft is super easy and the candle smells wonderfully tropical!  Each month Date Night In curates a playlist to be the soundtrack of your date.  You can access the awesome list via Spotify.  We listened to this while making dinner.  What a great way to get the date started! 

This month's recipe card featured a Beach Breeze Cocktail (as well as a non-alcoholic version) Island Mango Salsa, Grilled Fish Tacos and Coconut Macaroons.



You can find a printable grocery list for the recipes on Date Night In's site.  I thought the idea of cooking up a fabulous meal with my hubby was an awesome date even without all the other stuff...lol!  We love cooking together and we especially love eating together, so this was one of our favorite parts!

There were a couple of great games in this month's box.  Word Challenge is a word making game:

Love At Sea is a battleship-type game.  It came with laminated game boards and dry erase markers as well as a list of questions.



The questions are designed to encourage light-hearted discussion throughout the game.


Another fun couple's activity in the August box is Message In a Bottle.  We munched on this month's snack, Dried Organic Tropical Mix, while we created our letter.



The Reflection section of the guide gives you discussion topics, ways to continue your date night and movies that you could watch that tie into the theme. What better way to keep the date going than with a movie?!


We have actually seen all the movies on the list, but you can't go wrong with Jaws...a classic snuggle on the couch movie selection!

This was way cheaper and lasted a lot longer than a "normal" date night.  In our opinion, it was way more fun too!

Looks amazing right?  To recap, for just $41.99 (with free shipping), you’ll get a complete date night totally planned out for you with several activities, ambiance, music, snacks, recommended dinner menu and more.  If faith is an important pillar of your relationship, Date Night In is now offering the option to include a faith-based discussion guide as part of your experience.  If you want to involve the kiddos, they have a Kid's Night In box as well!  So much  awesomeness!  Check it out!!

Trust me, after your first Date Night In experience, you will definitely find yourself looking forward to the next month's date!  This is a great way to get us to slow down and make a point to have at least one night, just the two of us, to reconnect and have some fun! 


Stay tuned for next month's Date Night In Box!

Elevita: Gorgeous Handmade Gifts That Empower Artisans!

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

I recently found out about Elevita, an awesome company whose goal is to improve the lives of small scale artisans all over the world.  Elevita is an organization with an entirely volunteer staff.  They work hard to find beautiful handcrafted items and offer them at a fair price.  The money from your purchase goes directly toward improving families and communities in developing countries.  Take a look at a few of the gorgeous items that can be found at Elevita:


Each handcrafted item comes with an information card that tells about the product and the artisan who crafted it.  Check out a few of our favorites products from Elevita's collection:


This classy necklace is made from a variety of stones and crafted by Louela Nalzaro of the Philippines.


 Louela is a single mom who learned the art of jewelry making to help provide for her two young children. 


This eye-catching piece is made with great care, and can be doubled or tripled depending on the needed length. 


These genuine pearl bracelets are handmade by Rosalie Blanza, a single mom in the Philippines. 


Freshwater pearls are carefully arranged with a "love" charm: a classy way to say, "I Love You!" to the special women in your life. 


This bag is Elevita's best ever! It is crafted by an amazing group of women in Cambodia who use very high quality native fabric and great skill to complete each piece.


 This bag will see you through thick and thin. It has an open inside pocket, an inside zip pocket, a supported base, and very sturdy handles.



 Each bag comes with a card that tells the story of these impressive women in Battambang, Cambodia. Bag measures 17x6x14 inches without handles.


These beautiful wallets are created by Sok Chan, a gifted Cambodian seamstress who is confined to a wheelchair. To help provide for herself and her 10-year-old son, she uses native fabrics to create these perfect cash or card-holders. 


You will be amazed at how handy they are for every-day use! Wallets measure 4"x5" and have two zip pockets and a small loop for attaching to a key chain or bag clip.


This is the ultimate clutch!  Not only is it the perfect size, but it has zip pockets both inside and outside to accommodate everything you need. 


 Clutches measure 7x9 inches, excluding wrist loop.

These products are all beautifully made with quality materials.  The products you can find at Elevita would make the perfect gift for someone who loves handmade goods and gifts that give back.  Elevita makes it easy to know they your money is being put to good use AND you get a gorgeous, functional and well made product.  It doesn't get much better than that!

Shop Elevita and help improve our world one gift at a time 😊

If you are doing a keto or low carb diet, you know sugar is not your friend.  Neither are carbs.  But what if you have a sweet tooth and love snacking?  Sometimes it can be pretty tricky to find low carb or keto-approved goodies that actually help to keep you on track AND satisfy your craving for treats.  Sleek Treat is helping those who follow these diet plans take the guesswork out of finding snacks that are keto and low carb friendly and I couldn't be more excited to share this brand with y'all today!

Sleek Treat provides a range of cookies, bars, candy, nuts, granola, cheese snacks, confections and more each month which means you should always have great snack options on hand!  They do the tedious work of checking macros and reading nutrition labels so you don't have to stress.  All snacks in Sleek Treat have low net carbs per serving (typically 1-2g or less). Most snacks included are Gluten Free and if you are gluten intolerant you can make a note on your account to ensure you receive only gluten free snacks.
