Almost One Year of Blogging….

20170127_075413 Hey everyone! I can’t believe that a whole year has gone by since I first started this blog? It sure went like the wind! I have a few more days til it’s official but I want to take the time now to thank each and every single one of you who cruise through my blog posts! Espeacially those who comment. I read you guys comments daily. ALL OF THEM, for a matter of fact so I see you spammers as well….”bless your heart” as my grandmother would say. I’m never going to approve your comments but go right ahead on using your energy to submit them if that makes you happy! To one in particular that was not so much spam but a fellow Blogger whose site mentioned how the earth is not round but flat….thank you for visiting my blog. I returned the favor by clicking your link and thoroughly enjoyed your site! I have yet to approve your comment since I only viewed it in my email and not here. I have to dedicate a day to trashing spam to find your comment and many others like yours! Just know you guys that I appreaciate you all very much! I really do want this to be a engaging site with you all giving feed back, RESPECTFUL opinions and advice. I like to think at this age that Im at, that I know exactly who I’am and what I like and dont like. What I will accept and not accept. Will stand for and not stand for but in reality there is about 10% room for the unknown and unexpected for me. There are plenty of subscription boxes I have yet to try and life experiences as a woman, person of color (Oh, I know the correct term too by the way and it ain’t Black or African American but for right now…) and mother I have yet to experience but with each lesson I grow. Just as with each subscription box, purchase elsewhere and research hour dedicated to knowing more about what I’am rubbing on my skin, or ingesting and digesting. As for this Blog it is a mini expression of who I’am. Not perfect, but perfect in my imperfection and eager to learn, grow, share and repeat! I hope you guys have been entertained, educated, made to think about many things and overall pleased with what you have found here this past year. When it is officially one year as to date (in a few days) I will be back! For now, I’am going to enjoy this Tuesday in which I’am trying to get over a cold with my favorite chocolate by my side 😆

My First Ever LippieBox!

20170211_202127-1

*Sorry to those with pet peeves for grammatical errors (I read ya’ll comments 😌) BUT as some of you SHOULD know I do this as a hobby… and I do so very quickly at times without spell checking or anything before posting. I took the time to do so just now as I always come back to do when I have more time so smile. Forgive my initial excitement of just coming here and sharing regardless of how sleep deprieved I may be or what have you. If you knew me personally I think I would get a pass lol……now let’s get into it!*

Hey everyone! I wanted to drop in right quick with the newest subscription box I have tried! Today I received the LippieBox and was very happy I chose this box to try out! It is winter and the worst or most troublesome parts of my body are my hands that look and feel dry and my lips! So everything I receieved will be used and I dont have to worry about a shade or color that does not work for me as they are almost all colorless lippies lol. I just so happened to see the live by the owner last week where she showed what was available to customze your box if that was what you wanted. I did, so I chose 3 out of the 5 items you will see pictured below. I went with Bee’s Best Beeswax lip balm made in the USA, Cake Batter by Eclipse whose website I need to check out to see if wheter or not it was made here….but Im pretty sure it is was. And then the Bonne Bell Coca-Cola refresh tinted lip gloss. The two items chosen for me were the Valentines Lip Scrub by Magical Star along with their lip balm in Chocolate Raspberry! See pics below…

I like that the balms all have very simple ingredient lists and the cake batter one smells so delicious 😍 I have used the Lip Scrub that by the way offers a generous amount so thats awesome! Ah, and which has crushed up candy hearts within it! Then, I followed up with the cake batter balm because I just wanted to try that one first. It is very moisturizing and like I said before smells delicious. I will be back with an update on all the lippies in a week. As for now I’am content with my V Day gift to myself 😎

Snow Storm in NYC!

Hey guuuyyysss! Im talking to you from the comfort of my bed. I have looked outside and seen the accumulation of snow thus far and thought thank goodness I can stay in and rest. It was declared yesterday that schools would be closed today due to the expected snow storm. Meanwhile, parents and others may STILL be expected to head out to work? My little sister has been told by her managers that they are going to open at 3:30pm. That just blows my mind right there but Im not the least bit surprised as some folks/companies only care about profit. Nevermind that they will be wasting electricity and putting their workers in possible danger while they travel back in forth on the road in this storm. To wait for customers who are being advised to stay indoors…..yeeeaaaaa let that sink in.

On another subject, I have receieved the February 2017 Degustaboxusa food box and cannot say it excited me much. It did however excite my LO who had seen an unboxing online prior to us receiving ours last night. He could not wait to open the included Walker’s Shortbread cookies. And they did not dissapoint either of us despite them being crumbs as most of it was broken up. As I already stated I was not excited by this months selection but happy to have recieved an extra item which I received in the past and loved. The Lovely chews! 😍😍😍😍 The other extras were two items I told them in the survey I DID NOT LIKE. The very artificial tasting gummies with yogurt from Welcher’s and the Jolly time popcorn that tasted like a bag of chemicals last month. The items for the February box was a hot sauce, cookies, dark chocolate bar with salt (wwhhyyy), a orange soda by Jones, two small packs of a sauce and a fettuccine package. I may have left one item out but I will simply come back and update this post later with pictures for accuracy! Ah!! As I type this out I have received a message from my sis and apparently after much thought her company will  be closed today. 😒 😂
