Love With Food: May

This is the May Love With Food box, and it was really cute!  It had a nice variety, and some very cool different things that I wouldn't normally have bought myself, but I plan to look for again!

The flavor of this Kutoa Peanut Butter and Jelly bar was pretty good, but the texture really threw me off...  It had a very soft texture, and I like my bars like this to have a little crunch.  That soft texture in addition to the subtle flavor just wasn't a great combination.

These Smarty Pants Women's Vitamin Gummies were a "bonus" this month and not technically counted as one of the food items, which I thought was cool!  There were enough in there for a few days worth of doses, and even though they weren't my favorite gummy vitamins ever, they were pretty good!

Trail Mix isn't really my thing because I tend to pick out what I want and leave the rest... But this Emily's trail mix wasn't bad, it just isn't my favorite

I don't really like jelly beans because they tend to have very artificial tastes that remind me of medicine, but the Surf Sweets Organic Jelly Beans weren't too bad! I gave them to my little brother and just ate a couple, but they had a pretty good flavor and we both approved!

A sucker! I never just get suckers anymore, it's such a childhood thing.  This Glee Gum lollipop was a cute thing to include, but I don't really feel like this is a "snack" worth counting.

These Biena Chickpeas were so good!  I'm not a huge fan of nuts, so I thought these might be ok, but I didn't expect to like them nearly as much as I did.  The only ingredients were chickpeas, sunflower oil, and sea salt, so they can't be that bad either!  They had a nice crunch and the salt wasn't overpowering, I'd definitely look for them again.

I was super excited for the Smooze Fruit Ice, even though I'm not a huge coconut fan.  Because I'm not a huge coconut fan, this was a little odd to me.  The flavor wasn't bad, just not what I'd normally choose.  My main problem with this was that I couldn't get it to squeeze out of the paper!!


This Skinny Pop Chocolate Pop Corn was SO good!! Like, I wasn't expecting that at all!  It had just enough chocolate flavor to get a sweet fix, and was that perfect balance between sweet and salty.  I would buy this everyday.







This Chocolate Chip Brownie Brittle was tied for my favorite thing in this box!  It was sooo chocolatey and yummy, like super crunchy cookies.  They were small and there weren't a ton of pieces, so it keeps you in check, while still giving you a wonderful chocolate snack.


The box this month also came with this cute little sample of the Simple Micellar Water!  I think that is such a cool idea to include a little beauty sample with the food, I love it!

And then aaaaall of these coupons and papers which I intend to use, but never do...

So out of this box I really like four, and could take or leave five, and didn't dislike any!  Those odds aren't too bad, especially considering I REALLY liked those four! 
I had originally purchased a discounted three month subscription, and this was supposed to be my last box, but they sent me an email for one at half price and I got roped in... So expect to see a June Love With Food box soon!

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…

Country Concert Lookbook

Early this fall I will be going to a Brad Paisley AND an Avett Brothers concert!  So when I found out King Ranch Saddle Shop was looking for inspiration when it comes to country style I had to share my ideas!  It is the dog days of summer, with hot days and cool nights here in the mountains, so I tried to create looks to fit all weather and styles!

Sassy  For the budding flower child who needs to show a bit of a wilder side and have fun for the night!   This is a crop top and basic jean shorts, which could be subbed for light wash ripped skinnies if the venue is going to be cooler (which is actually what I wore to a Flogging Molly concert last fall!). Crop Top: American Eagle Shorts: Hollister Flower Crown: Claire's


Sweet  This is for the sweet girly girl who still want to show their country side.  It is a simple white lace top dress, to which I have added a red flannel for those cool Summer nights.  The flannel could be tied around your waist during the day, or substituted for a d…
