Five on Friday - October 28, 2022 ~ September & October Scratch Monthly Mani Kit, Joe Fresh x Jillian Harris Collab, Smash & Tess Dresses, Thrifting Finds, and October 2022 Little Passports Subscriptions
Happy Friday everyone, I hope you all had a great week! Mine was pretty normal - we are dealing with a little cold running through the house, but nothing too crazy here!
I purchased everything in this post
I just got my September and October 2022 Scratch Monthly Mani Kita and as always, they are super cute. This is an easy, affordable subscription that features nail wraps from GoScrachIt that are exclusive to the kit each month and designed by NinaNailedIt!
The Scratch Monthly Mani Kit is $18.00 US monthly with free shipping everywhere! Each month you get an exclusive set of wraps that aren't available for purchase and a little extra mani goodie with it! The September set was a K-Pop theme with white tear drop studs for accents. Then the October 2022 set is the Cosmic Creep set designed by Mickee Mariee with some Halloween stickers!
I'm so excited about the new Jillian Harris and Joe Fresh collab - there was some really cute items and I picked them up for Fall! Here's a little try on look on my instagram!
- JF x Jillian Harris Patti Jeans (I wear a size 30)
- JF x Jillian Harris Wholehearted Sweater (I'm wearing a Large)
- JF x Jillian Harris Jilly Shacket in Light Pink
- JF x Jillian Harris 2 pack Cozy Socks
- JF x Jillian Harris Wind Down Tunic
I'm really happy with all of these - the fit is great on all of these (the tunic nighty is a little big getting it all in a Large, but overall happy with it all!)
I also recently picked up a couple of cute dresses from Smash and Tess - the first one is the Olivia Midi Dress in Forest Green and the Coffee Date Dress (I wear a Medium in both). The Coffee Date dress was on sale, so had to scoop up the other one. I love the belted style and overall, am happy with them both!
My latest Value Village thrifting finds are really good - picked up a few cute kids books, and the most exciting is this Greedy Granny game for $4.99 (because she is over $38 on Amazon) and works perfectly. We have played this every night, it's the perfect game for young kids!
Elliott was gifted a Little Passports subscription for Christmas, and we just got the 11th delivery! Little Passports is a kids subscription company that focuses on "play-based science and geography kits delivered monthly." They offer 5 different subscriptions for ages 3 - 8+ and they have 3 different Geography based subscriptions and 2 Science subscriptions.
So, Elliott is getting the Early Explorers meant for ages 3-5 and it's described as "discover the world’s wonders, from oceans to art to animals through hands-on activities, games and stories." This subscription is $27.95 US monthly, and you can also add on a book for $9.95 - you save more if you subscribe to a longer term. The first month comes with a little suitcase and passport to set you up for future months. I think this subscription sends you things based one your subscription term as opposed to having a new set of activities each month (meaning every subscriber will get the Animals theme for month 5 of their subscription term, instead of Animals being only the April 2022 theme).
So, this is the 11th month the theme is "Dinosaurs" - each month you will receive a themed package with an interactive souvenir, activity booklet, a puzzle, stickers, and more. This one came with paper a stuffed animal, a puzzle, stickers, etc. There has been a puzzle in the last 7 or 8 months and it would be nice if they had a bit more variety in the box!
I hope you all have a great weekend!
