I received Hellman's tartar sauce complimentary in a VoxBox, but all options are my own. I used this tartar sauce with a homemade crab cake recipe, and found it to be a tasty condiment. It was sweet and tangy and would go well with any fish dishes. I would recommend it!
I began using Gwynnie Bee about six months ago, and I must say I really enjoy this subscription service. It's a clothing rental company, specifically for plus-sizes. You choose items that you are interested in, add them to your virtual closet, they send you an item, and then you send it back when you're finished and they send you something else! I began with two items at a time but in order to save some money went down to one item at a time. I have had good experiences so far! I've only gotten a couple of items that I really didn't like. They have a size guide for every piece, which I make sure to pay attention to, and everything I've gotten has fit pretty well. Shipping times are generally good... once I send something back, I usually get another box within about 5 days. I make sure to keep my closet curated with clothes that I like and that are in season. I'd say the only downside is that it's a little pricey, but considering I get to wear a new outfit every week, I think it's worth it! I like it because I don't have to invest money in clothes that may get worn out quickly or that may not fit in the future. I would recommend Gwynnie Bee to any of my plus-sized lady friends who enjoy fashion and have a little extra money to spend on a treat for themselves.
I tried HelloFresh a few months ago when I received a coupon code for it. I only did it for one week, but have reactivated it for two other weeks when I received coupons through email, which they send out periodically. Really the only way I can presently afford this service is when I have a coupon code... $60 is even more than my budget for an entire week, but if I have a coupon for $20-30, it is nice as an occasional treat. I think that their target audience are individuals who do not have time to grocery shop and end up eating out all the time, in which case, I imagine it would actually be cheaper. The service itself I have really liked. You are able to pick which meals you want them to send (there are 6-7 options/week for the 2-person meal plan), and all of the recipes I received were really good. I like the fact that I don't have to meal plan, or grocery shop, and it is delivered right to my door! The recipes were great, and I feel like they are fairly healthy and easy to make as well. It's nice that they send you exactly what you need. The food has stayed cold when it arrived, although I did have one instance where a vegetable started to go bad much earlier than I would have expected. Another time, they sent an avocado and it took far too long to ripen. My only complain though really is just the price. If someone has an ample grocery budget and is looking for ways to save time and make healthy recipes, I would recommend it.
I started using Mint a few years ago, but I do not utilize it very frequently. I keep a close eye on my finances more manually using spreadsheets and categorizing expenses, which I prefer because it can be easier to make adjustments and notes. But, Mint is a good way to double-check or a good option for those want an automatic way to keep track of expenses. You can link up your bank accounts and credit cards and it automatically keeps track of what you spend and categorizes it. You can set up a budget and it will tell you if you are going over on categories. I think though the main drawback to me is the rigidity of the budgeting. For instance, I may spend more in one category in a month and less in another category, but it is hard to convey that on the website. As a note, I have only used the website, not the mobile app.
I don't often need Tums but I like to have these on hand in case I do! I haven't used many other Tums or similar products, so I cannot say for certainty about their effectiveness, but they seem to do the trick. I especially like these because I enjoy the flavor - quite enjoyable. I usually buy these at Target and like to have a bottle on hand for when I may need them.
I was excited to find Mayfield ice cream at Harris Teeter, as it had been several years since I'd had this brand. I decided to try Turtle Tracks because the chocolate and caramel flavor sounded good. Overall, a great ice cream and very tasty! Only a couple of downsides... I wish that it had better quality ingredients. Corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup are near the top of the ingredient list, and I try to avoid those. It also didn't have a lot of the caramel and chocolate pieces, especially near the bottom of the carton, and I would have prefered more. (I received a coupon for a free carton of Mayfield ice cream courtesy of Influenster, for reviewing purposes. All opinions are my own).
I decided to try these cleansing wipes after hearing about them on Influenster. I found them at Walgreen's and they were on sale. I've been enjoying them! Other reviewers have mentioned their scent, but I don't actually mind the scent (which comes from the witch hazel, not from chemicals). I have used them to remove my makeup at night and even just to freshen up my skin in the morning if I am in a hurry and don't have time to wash my face. They may cause a little dryness, but I use a moisturized anyway. Overall, they are a pretty standard makeup remover, not necessarily amazing but pretty good.
I've bought quite a few items at H&M over the years. I'm glad they finally have shipping from online shopping available in the US now (although I haven't actually ordered anything). They have a wide variety of styles, including casual clothes and office attire, and their items are very cute and reasonably priced. My main complaints would be that clothes are not always great quality and some clothes do not seem to carry the plus-sized items (even though they are available online).
I've been eating Chobani yogurt for a few years and really like it! They have a variety of flavors and the yogurt is thick and fairly nutritious. I've purchased them at Target and Publix. They can be a little pricey ($1.00-1.25 each), so try to catch them when they're on sale!
