January Love With Food Subscription Box

(Stay tuned for a special Valentine's giveaway towards the end of this post!)

So after searching around on My Subscription Addiction for a subscription box to try out for free or on the cheap to see if I liked it, I found this Love with Food box! They had a promotion going where the first month was free (except for shipping), so for all of this I paid $2!

The first thing I found upon opening my box was this pamphlet giving a description of all of the products inside! Isn't it cute??
It says... "What does 2015 have in store? All good things! While now's the time for New Year's Resolutions and looking foreword, give yourself a little love for what you have already achieved. With the purchase of this box, you helped to feed a hungry child. If that's not a great way to start off the New Year, we're not sure what is!"

And this was what I saw after moving all of the paper...

The first thing on top was Breakfast in Paris Black Tea by Stash
"Ideal for that sleepy Sunday Morning, steep yourself a warm cup with notes of lavender an d bergamot and melt into your comfy couch" 
Gluten free, Vegan
Dark Chocolate Cacao Nibs by Britt
"Straight from the Costa Rican rainforest, pop a few at a time and these bittersweet little babies will get you fired up for a fresh start!"

Review: I don't normally like dark chocolate, but these were pretty good! I liked them until I realized this tiny package is supposed to be 2.5 servings!!
Velvet Truffeles by Alter Eco
"Made with pure Peruvian chocolate, this sweet little treat is 99.97% organic, 81% fair trade certified ingredients and 100% to die for!"
Non-GMO, Gluten free, Organic

Review: Better than Lindor Truffles! They were creamy, melt upon contact amazing
 In-Shell Almonds by Bobalu
"Move over pistachios. In-shell almonds are taking over your game! Crunchy, fun and full of protein, looks like someone's got a makeover for 2015"
Vegan, Gluten free

Not a fan of Almonds... gave them to my mom!
 Chocolate Dipped Coconut Mini by Luna
"Looking for a little bar to get you through your big workout? Packed with all the right stuff to keep you going, you'll go (coco)nuts for this one!"
Gluten free

I would really like to try Luna bars, I just don't much like Coconut, and this is mom's favorite one, so she got it :)
Cassava Pops by Wai Lana
"At only about 100 calories per bag, these popped-not fried or baked-pups offer all the flavor of typical chips with a fraction of the fat." 
Gluten free, Non-GMO, Vegan

Santa Fe Salsa Somersaults by Somersault Snack Company
"If seeds and grains are your new thing, you'll go head over heals for these tasty morsels."
Non-GMO

Review: These were my favorite thing in the box!! They were big pieces full of sunflower seeds, and they were spicy, though I do wish a few more came in a pack!
 Energy Kettle Cooked Apples by Big Slice
"A simple delectable way to get your 5-a-day, eat a pouch on your way to yoga and say bye-bye to those extra holiday lbs."
Non-GMO, Gluten free

Review: To tell the truth, these kind of terrified me at first! They are Green Coffee Raspberry Hibiscus flavor, and pink... but they actually taste very good :) 
And at the very bottom on the box were all these papers, coupons, and TWO gift cards!  A $40 Hello Fresh (a subscription box with all of the components for a meal) and a $15 Urban Remedy credit (towards $50).

 
So I had an idea... How about an early Valentine's giveaway???

This Giveaway will include:
$40 Hello Fresh gift card
$15 off $50 Urban Remedy gift card
25% off Cafe Britt
25% off Big Slice apples
$5 off $20 at Stashtea.com
$0.60 Stash Tea in store coupon
20% off Cinnful Sweet Heat Tortilla Chips by Chips Happen
$5 off a Love With Food Subscription
Lindor Truffles!! (because I couldn't let it all be healthy)
And finally, a Valentine's Day surprise!

To enter, subscribe to this blog, and write a quick comment on this post telling me you subscribed! It's that simple!


So in conclusion, I greatly enjoyed 5/8 products, am still inquisitive about the tea, and gave the other two products to my mom! Besides that, I received enough gift cards and coupons to pay for the original price of the box by themselves! 
Guys, I think I'm gonna keep it!!

If you would like to try one of these boxes yourself for just the $2 cost of shipping, use this link lovewithfood.com/invite, and please subscribe and enter the giveaway!

  1. I've subscribed! I thought that I already had, but I guess bookmarking your blog is a bit different than subscribing. <3

College Countdown: Dorm Tour

I think I finally got my side of my dorm to look how I want it to this year, and I am absolutely thrilled with it!

I chose the colors yellow and grey, which isn't what I'd usually pick, but I've been thrilled with the way it turned out!  I'm not going to mention where every little thing is from, if you want more information on that you can check out my Dorm HaulI posted earlier this week, but I will do my best to hit he highlights!
First I will start off with my desk area.  From right to left I keep my makeup in the drawers I DIYed, my makeup mirror from Amazon, my desk organizer filled with legitimate desk things, as well as more makeup and makeup brushes, my tea station with my chip mug and honey, my textbooks, and finally my sticky notes and Ray Bans!
The wall above my desk I turned into sort of a gallery wall!  It has been a process to get all of this up, because anything even semi heavy continues to fall down!  From top to bottom: I picked up the canvases at a bi…

My Petal Club

A new box!  And a PERIOD subscription box at that!  I love finding new boxes to try out, especially when they are this affordable!  This box is normally $6.99 per month, but if you use the discount code "SUMMER" on mypetalclub.com, this box will be only $3.50!  And let's be honest, one box of pads/tampons is usually more expensive than that, so why not give it a try??

So this box primarily consists of just the period products with very few extras.  This isn't one of the present, feel-good kind of boxes, it just provides you with the necessary products to get through the month, at an affordable price.
Step One The first thing you do on their website is choose the combination of products you will need.  Be warned, you aren't given as much of a selection if you order through Cratejoy like I did.  It worked totally fine and I still got the products I needed, but I like choice!  So I suggest going straight through their website.  You are going to get 30 products total…

Glossybox: August (A Cautionary Tale)

So let's talk about Glossybox...  Originally I subscribed when they had a special, three months for $30.  I thought it would be a cheaper way to try something new and see how I liked it, and maybe spice up my content.  I was sadly disappointed.  I wouldn't reccomend Glossybox to anybody.  My subscription was supposed to start in July, but that box never came.  I contacted them about it, and it took a month to get a reply simply saying they would look into it and get back to me the next day.  I waited another week before emailing them again, and at this point I was very upset.  After demanding a reply, explanation, and my box which I had paid for, lo and behold I finally received a tracking number, as well as 100 very useless "Glossydots."   I began to understand that this is not an individual problem and there were many people who didn't receive their boxes and were not getting a reply from their customer service department.  Yet they didn't seem to care.
