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…

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.
