Nostalgia Lovers Rejoice! This Crate is Full of Awesome!


I am such a nostalgia nerd; mostly 80's and 90's nostalgia. I live for it. My husband and I collect various things from those two decades and our collections are huge throwbacks to our childhood. It's exciting to run into toys, games, and books that you forgot all about through the years and it immediately takes you back to a better time when the only thing you had to stress about was what character was the best in Street Fighter.

Ocean Waves Projector Light With Nature Sounds

I suffer from some serious insomnia. Between anxiety, depression, and high stress levels, it's just hard for me to relax at night and get any amount of sleep. Typically, I have a routine that includes lavender oil, a diffuser, and soothing sounds on my phone. All that seems to work okay, but that's a lot of different things and my night stand end up completely full of things to help me sleep.

This month, when I was putting my recent BookCase.Club books in our library, I came to realize I am in dire need of some new book shelves and a long over due addition built onto our library. The library is second on the list only to my much needed office remodel, but the library is my favorite room of the house. For good reason! I'm just happier when surrounded by my books. Stories and worlds that I can visit without leaving my comfy chair are at an arms length away. My two favorite genres, Young Adult and Horror, are highly present through out the crisp white shelves adorned with soft white string lights. I owe a lot of my new "babies" to BookCase Club.

The Truth About Anxiety & Depression



What exactly does anxiety and depression do to you? I think the more appropriate question would be, what doesn't it do to you? Everyone has suffered through depression or anxiety at one point in their life. For the lucky ones, it goes away; for us unlucky ones, we are stuck with it for life. Constantly trying to manage it and a lot of the time, trying to hide it.

July 2017 DegustaBox


July's Degustabox was hinted to have lots of picnic type snacks in it to celebrate July being a huge month for outdoor picnics. I was really excited about this. Last month they did a little theme where they included a lot of Italian foods. This month was a picnic theme. It was quite perfect, because we love to picnic!
