This October Box is SO Good It's SCARY!

Oct 15, 2021

The Fall, and specifically Halloween are my FAVORITE times of year. I love the crunch of leaves, the cooler mornings & evenings, bonfires, comfy sweatshirts, spooky movies and the excitement that this season is the kick off to SO MUCH holiday fun to come. Fall just feels like the gateway to months FULL of festivities, family, friends and fun. This October Launch Box is THE epitome of FUN. Dare I say...it's my favorite box to date...gasp!

A very cool element to this box is that it's a dual celebration-palooza box. First, the obvious, yay Halloween, what's October without it?! Then, there is the Travel Agent's DREAM bonus which is theming surrounding Walt Disney World's 50th Anniversary. This Anniversary is obviously a HUGE deal in the travel industry. It is something that we, as agents have been promoting the CONFETTI out of to drum up business and continue the "Let's travel again" momentum. There are some really fantastic materials in here to use for...

For the love of Travel Agents Everywhere, COVID GO AWAY

Sep 03, 2021

You guys, seriously, what's with this virus?! We echoed the whole, "What doesn't kill us only makes us stronger" all last year until we were blue in the face. This year the pulling up from the ole' boot straps began, the sun started shining, vaccines were being given, ports and resorts were reopening, guests were feeling optimistic and traveling again and...gasp...commission checks started coming in. Then...like an unwelcome party crasher, enter, The Delta Variant. (Doesn't that sound like the worst punk rock band name ever?!) Seriously, no one wants you here. Go away. 

Now, this week especially I am feeling like I am slipping right back into 2020ville. Guests are getting nervous, they are watching Covid numbers rise, they are hearing scary reports on the news and as a result, cancellations are starting to ramp up. Granted, some just want to move to what will feel like a safer dot on the calendar but many are just outright cancelling wanting to free up that deposit money...

The August Box is Summer's Sweetest Swan Song

Aug 05, 2021

I feel like I spent all of the winter wishing for summer and then summer finally arrived and I just haven't had a chance to adequately soak her up. What used to be the lazy, hazy days of summer has been replaced with running around, squeezing in vacations, daily errands and just living life at breakneck speed. This August Launch Box was a sweet summery reminder to, "SLOW THE HECK DOWN WOMAN". 

The Launch Box packaging is always top-notch, I just love tearing into the tissue paper like a kid on Christmas, it's a gift for me...for once. (Does summer make me sound bitter?) Everything is always placed so intentionally and the presentation is lovely. Presentation isn't lost on me even as I immediately just start tossing things around. (I'm just SO excited!!) 

The first item I lingered on was the Unicorn Pop from Goofy's Candy Company. Weren't those unicorn pops just one of the greatest things about being a kid?! Instant nostalgia. I opened this RIGHT up, popped...

Just say OUI to Disney's Riviera Resort

Aug 05, 2021

I am going to start this review of Disney's Riveria Resort off with a bit of a preamble. "It was a dark and stormy night"....Just kidding...

Last year, during our covid-phased reopening visit we hopped on the Skyliner from Hollywood Studios to have lunch at the Riviera's Quick Service restaurant, Primo Piatto. We were curious about the resort as it had JUST opened right before the world shut down and...we were anxious to ride the Skyliner for the first time ever. After a fun whirl on the Skyliner and a QUICK walk through a breezeway, we arrived. Maybe it was the stunning Tangled mosaic mural you pass under, maybe it was the embossed toilet paper in their pool restroom (seriously, SO extra!), maybe it was the crazy good Croque Monsieur sandwich I devoured...but it was love at first sight. We were all quietly coveting this resort, no one really wanting to say out loud that we were having some serious resort envy and all really wanting to pack up and bring everything over to the...

July's Box is Pedal to the Metal FUN!

Jul 22, 2021

Truth bomb, I have JUST returned home from Disney World. (As in not even 48 hours ago, you're familiar with that level of sadness, right?) I was on the plane coming home, the post-Disney trip blues already starting to wash over me and I had that moment where I thought, "How can I be excited about planning trips when my own trip is already in the bag?! I know, I know, selfish, first-world problems, but I'm nothing if not honest. Then...I saw that precious blue box sitting on my counter. WHAT A TREAT to come home to my Plussing It Launch Box! (Cue the angels singing...)

It's some kind of crazy kismet that these monthly boxes somehow always know exactly what I need each month, even before I know! Over the last few months, every box has had a couple of things that I have been DESPERATE to restock because they are just SUCH clever items. However in this month's box...EVERY item fits that bill. I need more, more, MORE...MORRRRE!

On our way home from Disney, we were plotting our...

June is the HOTTEST Box to COOL Off With!

Jun 07, 2021

I have such a love/hate relationship with summer. I claim to love it, I wish for it all year long, I even rub it in winter's face all season long how much I miss and love summer. Then summer comes, and like clockwork (or sun dial work) I am the FIRST to complain about the heat. I still inevitably will visit Walt Disney World this summer even if it means sweating bullets from every last pore...but it's SUMMER! I have to! Longer days, funky tan lines, ice cream for dinner and just a more laid back frame of mind are all things I LOVE about summer. This June Launch Box was the perfect blend of summery fun without all the sweaty messiness. 

I love how this month was bundled up, swaddled like my own little bundle of Travel Agent love. (Let's make Christmas in June a thing, because that's what tearing into that tissue felt like!) Okay, maybe it's obnoxious, but BECAUSE I DO have a trip coming up in less than a month I looked this box over and thought, "Ohhhh yeahhhh, that's...

You MAY Just LOVE This Launch Box Review!

May 03, 2021

May is a month full so so many possibilities, the whole "April Showers" thing is over with and we can focus on the May flowers part. Possibilities are BLOOMING, the school year is winding down, the weather is warm, summer vacations are becoming more and more tempting to us AND to our travel clients. The days are longer, the sun is out and I just received my ah-MAY-zing Plussing It Launch Box, life is indeed GOOD! Just in time for an uptick in travel momentum, we MAY just be turning the corner for real folks! 

It's true that I subscribe to this box predominantly to gain fresh ideas on how to spoil my travel guests and entice new guests to take a walk on the wild side, by trusting and booking with this agent. (I know it's hard to believe that all of this travel booking goodness is free.) Each month when I open the Launch Box, there's a healthy amount of give and take happening...not this month. Nope, every single morsel of fabulousness is staying right here with me. (It's really...

Unboxing the April Launch Box

Apr 09, 2021

Travel Agent Success is BLOOMING This Month

 
Maybe it's just me, but it is TOUGH for me to get excited during that post-holiday-March slump. It gets dark so crazy early, everything outside is dead and there isn't much to look forward to. (As seen by my overzealous celebrating of Pi Day and St. Patty's Day when I'm neither Irish nor a friend of math.)
 
Then...then comes April. We move the clocks ahead, the daffodils start popping up, the trees begin to bud annnnd, a new Launch Box arrives on my pollen-covered doorstep. Hope SPRINGS eternal! This was such an exciting box for me to open because it signified rebirth, growth, and BLOOMING! the timing was perfect too; arriving on a gorgeous Spring North Carolina day. 
 
 
When I opened the box it automatically felt like SPRING! It was full of green! I have missed green so badly this wet and LONG (feeling) winter. There was green from the happy little packing fringe to the beloved monthly candy fix down to...

PINCH ME It's St. Patty's Day and I'm at WDW!

  Lucky you, not only are you at Walt Disney World, but you are there during one of the most spirited, carefree, and fun holidays of the year, ST. PATRICK'S DAY! We are ALWAYS one to be celebrating something, and St. Patrick's Day is no exception! Grab your green Minnie ears, your quirky green knee socks, and let's get shamROCKED!!!

Here's our list of the TOP FOUR awesomely Irish things to do while enjoying St. Patty's Day at Walt Disney World!

#1 RAGLAN ROAD

I'm not going to beat around the bush; the absolute BIGGEST and best, must-do for your St. Patty's Day list is to visit Raglan Road in Disney Springs. It is ALWAYS St. Patrick's Day at Raglan road so you can imagine the excitement and energy that pulsates from this amazing, authentic Irish eatery during the ACTUAL St. Patrick's Day holiday.

Luck Favors the Plussing It Launch Box Subscribers

Mar 11, 2021
March can mean so many things, the hopeful turn to Spring, days getting longer, Easter on the way, and of course, when all of us channel our inner Irishman for St. Patrick's Day.  And of course, the best part, a new month means a NEW LAUNCH BOX. I truly look forward to this day ALL.MONTH.LONG. (As soon as I have finished going through one, I immediately get completely geeked about what will come the following month! Can one become addicted to Launch Boxes?)
 
 
The March box had a bit of a St. Patty's, "make your own luck" kind of theme to it and I was LOVING it! The first thing I noticed when I opened my box was my handwritten note and the adorable sticker that was adhered to the envelope that read, "Luck favors the prepared." I let that sink in for a bit.
 
I've been fortunate to have my travel business picking up some steam this year, guests are ready to kick some tires, many are ready to commit and it's time for me to switch gears. Having guests ready to...
