As much as I love this time of year, I also loathe it. Things get so chaotic in these last couple months of the year and time goes by so fast! With the holidays being so crazy, I also have to add family birthdays to the chaos. Seriously, there are ALOT of them! From my husband and son, to my mom and my father in law, my brother, my aunt and uncle, several nieces and nephews, ect. It's madness! For now though, I'll take a moment away from all that and share something with you dolls that makes me happy - the October My Texas Market, box!
My Texas Market, who kindly sent me this box for review, is a Texas based artisan subscription service. The cost is $35 per month (save 25% off your first box with coupon code MAIL25) and includes an array of products from vendors and small businesses throughout Texas. It's like the best of a southern farmers market carefully tucked into a box!
Oh! So many lovely goodies! This looks fabulous already!
The October Theme is Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice. Y'all know how much I love the lovely Fall tastes and smells so I'm really excited about this theme! The back of the card also gives you the scoop on each of this month's featured products.
Confituras Bourbon Caramel Apple Jam --- Oh this is delicious! Made in Dallas, this jam is a seriously yummy! A mix of Texas apples cooked to a smooth and silky consistency, caramel made with Organic Cane Sugar, and Red Handed Texas bourbon whiskey. I had it on biscuits this morning and it was so so good!
Srsly Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Candy Bar --- Made from the finest cacao beans from local farms. It is a stone ground 70% dark chocolate mixed with a SRSLY's own special pumpkin spice blend. It's really nice but it does have a stronger bitter aftertaste than I normally like. That's just me though!
Tradition Soy Wax Melts in 'Starbucks Coffee' --- Ok, I have a bit of a thing for wax melts anyways but coffee scented ones? I go crazy with joy! They are phenomenal! These melts are handcrafted in small batches with organic soy wax and are generously scented (which isn't always the case with wax melts!). I love this smell so so much...
Spaulding's Speciality Spices Holiday Spice Sugar --- Spaulding's creates some fantastic spice blends and I'm a huge fan of their products already. This one is all the spices that I love at this time of the year! Organic cane sugar is blended with organic cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg and lemon. It can work with just about anything but I enjoyed adding it to my tea and coffee the most!
From Scratch Farm Brown Sugar Pumpkin Spice Body Scrub --- A favorite from last year that I'm happy to see featured again! Handcrafted from the simplest and most organic ingredients in Boerne, Texas. This fabulously scented scrub is made with real ingredients like honey, olive oil, brown sugar, and spices to exfoliate and moisturize your skin. And how awesome is this packaging?! I love it!
Oh my, how I loved this month's box! Some of my favorite flavors and smells all in one place? Hell yes! This box just combines everything that I love to see in local, artisanal subscrptions and I just adore it!
