Degusta Box: October

I hadn't ever heard of this subscription box until I received an email about a promotion they were having.  This is a $19.99 subscription box, but they were offering a special discount for $6.99 plus two free gifts!  I figured, why not give it a try?


It came in a HUGE heavy box!  Inside it was wrapped with a cute little sticker, and everything even moderately breakable was packaged in bubble wrap.  I was immediately impressed.  

I thought I'd show the two sweet little extra gifts they sent me first...

You can't tell as much in this picture, but this is a quite large bag of mini cow tales! 

They also sent me a bag of Haribo sour gummy bears.  I am not a big Haribo fan, but these seem similar to Sour Patch Kids, which I love, so maybe they will be good!  I can't really complain too much anyway since they were a free gift with the box!  And candy! Perfect for Halloween.

Now let's get into the actual products in the box.  It came with nine different things, but a few of products came in multiples!

The first thing I pulled out, fully bubble wrapped, was this Sharwood's Tikka Masala sauce.  It is a Indian simmer sauce.  I have heard about Tikka Masala sauce many times on food network, but never tried or attempted to make it before.  Pretty excited!  This is valued at $4.99.

This is Brianna's Home Style Poppy Seed Dressing, and is made to be used as a traditional salad dressing, or as the main dressing for coleslaw, fruit, potato, tuna, and chicken salads.  It sounds like a nice tangy sweet dressing and I'm excited to try it! This bottle is valued at $3.99.

I got these Chef's Cut Buffalo Style Chicken Jerky in a Love With Food box once as well!  I am not a fan of jerky so I've given them to the men in my family, and my dad says it is really good stuff! This bag is valued at $5.99.

I've seen these Beanitos White Bean Chips featured in a few different subscription boxes recently, but I hadn't ever tried them before.  These are in the flavors Nacho Cheese and Hint of Lime.  I'm not a lime fan, but these remind me of Doritos.  These are valued at $1 each, and it came with a coupon for a free full sized bag as well!

I wish I had good things to say about this, but honestly this non-alcoholic Ginger Beer is probably one of the worst products I've gotten in a subscription box to date... It was so yucky!!  These are valued at $1.50 each.

These are NibMor dark chocolate bars, one with blueberry filling and the other with cherry!  They are both full sized chocolate bars, made with read fruit, and they sound amazing!  These are valued at $1.39 each.

These Basil and Garlic Olives were an odd little addition to the box I felt like.  But then again, I'm not a fan of green olives... So I will probably end up giving these to my mom!  These are valued at $1.49, and also come in the flavors Lemon and Rosemary, Chili and Garlic, and Chili and Oregano.

I felt like these Honees Honey Lemon cough drops were an even more odd addition to the box!  All kinds of food, snacks, and cooking ingredients... and then cough drops?  I mean, I guess it is useful to have!  These are valued at $2.75.

I somehow forgot to take a picture of this during the original shoot, but I made sure to take one when I used it tonight!  This is "Ponti Glaze with Balsamic Vinegar of Modena," and is described as a dressing, but is basically a balsamic glaze which can be used on basically anything!  This bottle is valued at $5.99.

Tonight I made honey bacon glazed chicken with balsamic vegetables and it was pretty amazing!  I'd definitely use and make it again!

The papers that came with this pox included a two recipe ingredient card for the Tikka Masala sauce, a recipe for the Brianna's dressing, and a coupon for the Beanitos chips!  

This is probably one of the weirdest boxes I've ever gotten honestly... It was multiple different ingredients for meals, none of which went together, and cough drops?  It was odd, but that's not to say I don't like it!  It was a really good value, and come with a few exciting things to try!  The total value of this box, not counting the two free gifts or the coupon for a free bag of chips, is $34.98!  Thats pretty amazing for a $20 box that I payed $7 for!

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…
