  • Restaurant Review: Gilbert’s Social

    A few days ago an article titled “The Soul Food Restaurants of Jacksonville” popped up in my Facebook feed. Number 3 on this list was Gilbert’s Social owned by Chef Kenny Gilbert.

Even though I don’t used all of the products in each bag, I’m still finding it worth the $10 per month based on the lip balm and nail polish alone. I’m no beauty product expert, but I’m loving the quality of the items I’ve been receiving. Check out the products I received in this months bag!
