January Nibblr Subscription Box

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 Nibblr box from the Pillsbury company!

Upon opening my box, I found a tray of four, healthy, portion controlled snacks. Each month they send you four snacks at random, until you begin to personalize your account.  You can personalize your account by selecting "Love it, Like it, Interested, or No Thanks".  All snacks begin marked "Interested", and after trying them you may mark them otherwise.  They will then try to send snacks marked "Love it" and "Like it" more often, and avoid sending the ones marked "No Thanks".

The first snack on my try was "PB Graham"

It is described as "peanuts, peanut wafers, and graham cookies snack mix", and falls into the "Feel Good Sweets" category.

Just a note, Nibblr CAN NOT cater to food allergies, and from what I have gathered they send quite a few nut products.

Review: This has officially changed my opinion of peanuts, I really did not think I liked them until now! I also wasn't sure what it meant by "peanut wafer", but it turned out to be a big salty peanut butter chip, which works for me! Loved this one!
This was also definitely enough for 2 servings, for me at least
The second snack in my tray was "Red, White, and Boom!"

It is described as "shortbread cookies, blueberries, and raspberries snack mix" and also falls into the "Feel Good Sweets" category.

Review: I loved this one too! I am not usually a fan of just plain shortbread cookies, but combined with the freeze dried raspberries and blueberries it was great! I preferred the raspberries greatly to the blueberries, and have since been searching for them to buy individually!
This one was enough for two servings as well.
 The third snack in my tray was "Nice & Naughty"

It is described as "sea salt caramel truffles and hazelnuts snack mix" and, once again, falls into the "Feel Good Sweets" category.

Review: Though I really enjoyed the sea salt chocolate caramel chocolate truffles (obviously!) I wasn't crazy over the Hazelnuts.  I ate about half of them trying to like them, and then just gave up, this is just a personal preference though!  
This snack was only about one serving.
The final snack on my tray was "Fa-la-la Licious"

It is described as "cranberries, almonds, and pistachios snack mix", and falls into the "fruit and nut" category.

Review: Nope, nuh uh, I don't do nuts.  After the peanuts were good, and the hazelnuts were tolerable, I decided to try the almonds and pistachios, and was NOT a fan... but that is just a personal preference.













So in conclusion, it was a really nice box, and cool treat, but I'm not sure if I will be keeping it.  At $6 a box, the snacks are about the same price individually as vending machine food, but I tend to pack my own snacks instead of resorting to a vending machine so it isn't exactly sensible for me.  Though I have no complaints and might come back and try it at a later date, I am pausing my subscription for now.

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.
