Love With Food: April 2016 Throwback

Like with the Ipsy post earlier this month, I found this draft the other day and for the life of me I can't figure out why it never got posted!  Despite the fact that it is a year old, I still thought it was relevant and interesting enough to have its day in the sun!  I hope you enjoy!

I didn't try these Laiki crackers for a while because I wasn't sure about them, and I wanted to try them with Chicken Salad.  They are nothing like I expected! They are square, and almost the consistency of Cheetos.  They also weren't too bad for you because they only have the three ingredients listed on the front.  Regardless, I loved them and would eat them with or without chicken salad next time!

These Tasty Organic Fruit Snacks were pretty good! I enjoy fruit snacks, so pulling these out f the box felt like being a little kid again!  These had a really good flavor with cute shapes, so I was happy!  I would totally buy these if I found them somewhere.

This Stinger Cinnamon Waffle was my favorite thing in this box!! It was a good size, about the size of my palm, so it was a nice treat.  It was nice an chewy, and had a really good cinnamon honey flavor, which are two of my favorite things!

This Nutryttiva Banana Bar was really interesting, the only ingredients were Bananas and a veeery small fraction of lime juice.  As a result, it tasted like pure chewy bananas!  The color was a bit off putting (solid black), but I understand that isn't something they can change while keeping it natural.  I thought this was ok, but it wasn't my favorite, my brother loved it though!

This Oatmeal Fruit Squeeze was kind of interesting... It had an odd consistency, and was not good at all at room temperature.  After refrigerating it was better, but I couldn't get past the consistency!  But then again, I'm not a huge fan of regular oatmeal either.

This chocolate chip Biscotti di Suzy was pretty good, and I thought this was a pretty cool snack to include!  It would have been even more fun had they added a hot chocolate or something similar in this box to go with it.

These Boulder Coconut Oil potato chips were good! They had a bit of an odd aftertaste, I'm thinking as a result of the use of coconut oil, but I still ate the entire bag so it wasn't bad!  I like the idea of them being made in a healthier oil, so I would totally buy these again!

I don't really like tea, so these were kind of a disappointment... The candy element is usually pretty iffy, but I think this was pretty weak.  I'll probably give these to my mom since she will actually enjoy them.

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, 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.
