Graze: October

First of all, can we appreciate how cute this box is??  I have been using it as decoration on my windowsill with leaves and pinecones, it matches perfectly and it is adorable! I didn't realize until much later that the print on the box is actually beets though... Interesting.  Cute, but interesting nonetheless.

This is a Banana Cream Pie snack pack which includes "chewy banana coins, pecan nuts, yogurt coated raisins and sunflower seeds."  I like all of those things except pecans, so I honestly might just pick those out... It is still exciting regardless!
These Honey Drizzled Cashews were amazing, and that is saying a lot for me because I am not a big fan of nuts!  These were the perfect mix of sweet and salty, and super crunchy with the hardened honey.
I had these cookie dippers the first time I tried this box and I remember loving them then too... These are cookie dippers with a Summer Berry Compote, kind of like a jam.  I ate them when no one was looking, so I will a…

Sprezza Box: October

This type of post is a bit out of the ordinary for me... You all know I am obsessed with subscription boxes, but this one is a man's subscription box!  I have seen this type of box before and thought they looked interesting, but expensive and a bit feminine.  

This one was neither of those things.  It is normally $28, which is more than I like to pay for a box, but they were doing a promotion for your first box for $8!  I thought, why not?  I can either give it to my boyfriend or my day, everyone wins! 

The box came with: A Countess Mara Tie Sprezza brand Cufflinks Paul Evans Socks A Business Card Holder "Fashion Anchors" (set of 6) Frey for Men Laundry Detergent (1 load)
As you can see, it came with many really nice items, that seem to be good quality, and were beautifully packaged! I plan to give the tie and socks to my boyfriend as part of his Christmas present, and the business card holder to my friend who is currently majoring in business.  I kept the fashion ancho…

Mail Time: TheECPlannerKitLady Sticker Haul

So apparently Halloween was mail day for me!  I checked my mailbox that morning after class and found a few fun things, and then later I got a notification that a package had been delivered, so why not check again?  I found my package and another letter!  It hadn't been such a great weekend, so finding all of the fun things waiting for me on Monday perked me right up!
I got three cards, one from my mom, my mom's coworker, and my grandmother!  I thought it was fun that all three had puppies.
My mother also sent me a huge box of Halloween goodies!  Candy, tattoos, donuts, fake bugs, all kinds of fun stuff!
But now on to the true meat of this post, I recently placed two orders with TheECPlannerKitLady on Etsy!  I know two is a bit excessive, but first she had a sale, and then she offered a discounted grab bag, both just for members of her Facebook group!  Planner stickers can be very expensive, so I jump at opportunities to get things for a better price!  You also may remember e…

Influenster Chapstick VoxBox

This was a fun VoxBox to be a part of!   Before these three new Chapstick flavors were released to stores, I got to give them a shot!  If you would like to try out this service where they send you products to review, you can sign up here: www.influenster.com/refferal

These Chapsticks are actually different from your everyday $1 chapstick beside the register at Walmart.  These are 100% natural lip butter "with naturally sourced ingredients, including Sunflower Oil, Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, Olive Oil, Shea Butter, and Beeswax for healthier looking lips."  I was sent three flavors, Green Tea Mint, Sweet Papaya, Pink Grapefruit.

By far my favorite of the three flavors was Green Tea Mint.  I didn't really get much green tea flavor, but it had a nice minty tingle.  The Sweet Papaya was good, nice and fruity.  My least favorite was the Pink Grapefruit... But I'm not a huge fan of the fake grapefruit smell/flavor regardless.  You know those Grapefruit Bert's Bees makeu…
