Simply Earth Box review

Today I am writing a voluntary review of the Simply Earth subscription box. I started getting the subscription box the last month and I'm super excited about it so I wanted to share with you exactly what you get every month in this essential oil subscription box and my opinions on the box. 

Simply Earth subscription box review.

I saw this box advertised on Facebook and liked the idea that every month you get not only your 4 therapeutic grade, full size, pure essential oils but also accessories to use them and recipe cards. You can create 6 natural home, body and wellness products from each kit and still have most of your essential oils left over! 

What convinced me to get this box, honestly, was a coupon code. And I do have one for you too, so if you're already ready to order scroll down to the bottom and the code is down there. 

Of course I had been looking at it for a while before I placed my order. Since before Christmas actually. 

Review: Tieks shoes

If you've been around Pinterest at all, I'm sure you've seen the ballet flats with the blue bottoms. Their called Tieks and while they are pretty expensive, they're touted as being worth every penny. So many Tieks reviews have been written talking about how amazing these shoes are. So of course I had to try them and find out!

Tieks review after wearing all day.

One of the first things I did was check out the Tieks by Gavrieli website and see if they have an affiliate program. They do not. Which means that all these bloggers were buying these shoes on their own! No discount, no kickback for sales from their posts. Now that is interesting! Especially considering that many bloggers do get stuff for free, so why would they spend almost $200 for a pair of shoes they couldn't make their money back on?

Comfort!

As I mentioned earlier these are rumored to be THE most comfortable ballet flat out there. So now I gotta know just how comfortable these shoes are. I ordered a pair.

5 side hustles (I actually did) to make extra money

It happens to the best of us. Something comes up, we realize we're short on money and we find ourselves saying "I wish I could make the money for that real quick". Well, you can make some extra money! That's what side hustles are for! Over the years I've had several side hustles going on to make me some extra money here and there. Some of them are good for a few extra bucks, others can amount to a full paycheck.

Side hustles and part time gigs

I'm not talking about part time jobs. These are all either work from home or day jobs. I have had several side gigs over the years, everything from selling pictures or video I took to being a secret shopper. Most of these don't make enough money to warrant the effort they require, which is the difference between a side hustle and a hobby.

Oh sure, I've tried all the apps and rebate sites to save money when I'm shopping, but I'm not including those here for one reason: you need to spend money first. For instance I get a deposit from Ibotta almost monthly. However, I have to buy groceries to get that rebate. Which is obviously different than just earning the money. This list is only for ways I've actually made money...not refunds.

Solar flame torch led lights

I spend a lot of time on a little lake in Michigan called Lake Orion. This year one of the neighbors had new lights on his boathouse. They were solar powered and looked like flickering flames. Probably the coolest thing I've seen in awhile so I needed to find out what they were and where I could get some! They are solar powered LED lights called Flame Torches, and they are awesome!

Solar torch lights

I bought a pack of 6 of these torches from Amazon and we put them down beside the dock. I am really impressed with the quality and the realistic flame effect they have which is why I decided to write this review. I am not being compensated for this review nor were these sent to me, in fact I paid almost $100 for them! There are cheaper ones available though!) 

I decided to write this review because these torch lights far exceeded my expectations...so if you've seen these online and you're wondering "are they really going to look that good in person?" here's your answer. YES!

Acting for cash, Make extra money as a movie extra!

It seems like everybody has a side hustle these days! Whether it's selling essential oils or a weekend job, a side hustle can put extra money in your pocket or bank account. I have had a side hustle (or 3) for years! What can I say, I like to stay busy! One of my favorite jobs has been as a movie extra. It's easy work, it's so much fun and it can be very lucrative!


I have been working as a movie extra off and on since the 90's. If you have any interest in learning more about movie magic then it's a great experience. Movie extras are those people in the background that are in restaurants, on streets, in parties etc. They don't have interaction with the stars of the scene, but they make things more believable. I mean, how real would it seem if restaurant scenes were empty, no one was ever on city streets and the only people in a movie were the principal actors?

Movie extras are sometimes referred to as atmosphere, background or background actors whereas the main actors are usually referred to as 'the talent'. Don't let that get to ya though, we know how important background actors are!

My first movie was Dogma and my most recent one was a Seth Rogen film that I'm not allowed to talk about yet. In between those, I worked on Concussion, Love The Coopers, the One Dollar series, a Budweiser commercial, a few other Hollywood movies and a bunch of small projects.
