I am a passionate planner girl, as evidenced by my YouTube/quietlittlecrush videos. If I see anything that can be used in my planners or journals, I'm all over it!. I also love to cook, but mostly eat, good food, and I enjoy experimenting with new beauty products. My dream is to travel to all seven continents. I've only been to two, so far, so I a have a ways to go!
This used to be my go-to vodka. I loved to mix it with all kind of juices. I don't drink as much as I did when I was younger, but I remember it was fairly affordable. It has a really nice flavor from the black currants without being too overpowering when used in mixed drinks. It goes really well with beery flavored drinks. I would definitely reccomend buying this product.
I received a sample of Sundown Natural B12 Gummies for free, and was a little skeptical. I expected them to have a gritty or off-putting flavor to them. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that they tasted just like gummies you would buy in the candy isle at the store.
One serving is two gummies, and they're meant for energy support. I think I had one raspberry and one mixed berry. There are also an orange flavored ones that come in the full-sized bottle. The gummies had a soft, chewy texture and a pleasant fruity taste.
Because I only had a sample, I can't attest to their use over time or whether or not they boosted my energy, but I would definitely buy them and try them out.
These ice cream sandwiches are similar to what I used to buy at the middle school I attended, and was totally obsessed with. The cookies that are used are oatmeal (no raisins) and the ice cream is really creamy. The whole thing is then drenched in chocolate. It has a great mint chocolate chip flavor. The mint doesn't have any chemical taste to it, and there are lots of tiny chocolate pieces. I purchased them from my local Target, but Blue Bell is a national brand, so you may be able to find it at your local grocery store.
This has become my favorite popcorn. I got tired of all of the chemicals in microwave popcorn, so I started to make it myself on the stove. The flavor of this popcorn is much better, and I feel better about eating it. The kernels seem to pop up bigger than other brands, so I don't have to use as much, and the jar lasts longer.
In a 3 Quart pot I add enough olive oil to cover the bottom of the pan. I find that if I use a really good olive oil I can skip the butter, which saves on calories.
Put the pot on the stovetop and turn the burner on high. I wait until the oil just starts to smoke and then I add 1/4 Cup of the kernels, but you can add the oil and kernels at the same time.
Once the kernels start to pop, be sure to shake the pan around to make sure the un-popped kernels filter down to the bottom of the pan so they pop too.
When the popping stops, remove the pan from the stovetop and place the popped corn in a bowl. Now you can add any flavors you want. I'm partial to salt an cayenne pepper, but just about anything out of your spice rack will work, depending on your personal preferences and whether you want savory or sweet popcorn - or both!
I received a sample of this in a magazine and tried it because I wanted to see how moisturizing it was for my dry skin. I kept having to apply more and more, but my skin still looked dry. My face felt really soft, but still looked really dry. I ended up putting CeraVe PM on over the top. Because I only had a sample I can't attest to it's ability to even out your skin tone, but I don't reccomend it just for it's moisturizing properties.
I was excited to try this brand of burrito, but it didn't meet any of my expectations. I knew it wouldn't taste like a burrito from Chipolte, but in my opinion, there was very little flavor to it at all. It cost almost $6.00 at Safeway, which I thought was a lot, but my brother said that there are two different sizes, and the smaller ones were about half the price. The burrito that I got was pretty big. Given the lack of flavor, though, I would have been better off paying $1.00-$1.50 for the generic ones.
Years ago I avoided "healthy" foods because they always lacked flavor. Things have ".evolved" enough that it shouldn't be the case anymore. I would not reccomend this product. It costs way too much. Save your money.
When I was in college, this was the best place to go for a regular cup of coffee if I didn't want to pay Starbucks' prices. I was able to get a strong cup of coffee without it tasting burnt. They also have really great doughnuts. Although I try to stay away from them due to the high calorie count, I've had raised chocolate, raised chocolate sprinkles, and a maple bar.
I received a bag of Glutino! (G) pretzels complimentary in my latest VoxBox from Influenster for testing purposes. I was surprised by how good they tasted! They are a lot lighter than regular pretzels, and not too salty, although, I found some of the salt at the bottom of the bag, but that happens with most bags of pretzels. They had a great crunch and pretzel flavor.
We happened to have a bag of Rolled Gold Pretzels (RG), so I did a comparison of the nutrition facts provided for one serving (1 ounce) each. Here's what I found:
I purchased the Brooklyn Thorn NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick. It was my first time purchasing any NYX product. I wanted a true brow, and though that this would fit the bill. It is very pigmented, so keep that in mind if you purchase it. I was disappointed in the color. I just wasn't right for me, but I like the matte look it gives my lips (I'm not a gloss girl). I just layer another lipstick on top and it's OK. I do apply lip balm underneath, jut to keep my lips from feeling dry. It seems to stay on pretty well, but it is not smudge proof.
