To all the parents reading how are you doing today? Have your little ones started school already or are they about to? Be it be Homeschool, Public school or Private school the time is upon us lol. I have rather enjoyed the quietness of summer but at last it must come to an end. Im trying to mentally prepare for all the moving and shacking (Literally) I will have to endure traveling everyday and prepare my ear drums for all the shouting or wtmi (way too much info) conversations that will commence by the young in public. The only thing Im looking forward to is my little one’s achievements throughout the year to come and COOLER WEATHER! Let’s talk about this disrespectful weather and how it has played me lol. I have so finally mastered the perfect full face look highlight and all but could barely wear it this summer out of fear of looking like a sweaty hot mess 😂😂😂 Damn it! The only Hightlight of it all (no pun intended) is that I have come to love the no full face look. The simplicity of rocking a cute winged eye, some shadow and a poppin’ lippie! Or just a poppin’ lippie!
I actually have discovered some very cool new make up goodies thanks to various subscriptions and Amazon. Like this matte lipgloss set by SXC cosmetics that I found on Amazon a week or so ago as a prime deal at $6 and change…
But I also want to mention that I have tried and retried some food/snack boxes as well! Two new companies were the Tokyotreat box and the MunchPak box. (Im not sure right now if I uploaded pics from our first and last Tokyotreat box from April 2o17 so I will include it here now) But the MunchPak box is from this month August 2017 and our first time trying it. If these are not highlighted link’s right now dont worry they will be later. You should know by now that I type to my hearts content and then come back to proof read. Im honestly hoping that one day I will proof read and find zero errors but ummmm yea not sure when that will occur lol. Anyway, one of the food/snack boxes we revisted (me and my mini me) was the small box by Univeral Yums! I was trying to be frugal so we got the small box and because it was Columbia snacks this month I figured we’d appreaciate it no matter the size/amount of items and we did! Everything was yummy. Let me just insert the pics now… here’s the Universal Yums box (small box)
And here is the MunchPak Box!
Here is the Tokyotreat box that I possibly may have blogged about buy dont have time to check so Im just gonna stick this pic here…if I have someone let me know! I have quite a number of posts. And we have tried quite a few snack boxes…
Just use my code which this link will establish right here Degustaboxusa! to get your first box if you have not already tried this food box for $9.99! If you are not satisfied which I doubt will be the case you can cancel the next months box.
I will be back to chat a bit more in this post but for now I will just ask if you guys would comment below what you want to see posted here most this year! For me it’s food recipes of mine I have yet to share! Anyway, XoXo! Thanks for always checking in. There will still be subscription boxes shared here like my most recent one by the Candy Club!
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. 😒 😂
Hey guys, you should already know my bias for this monthly subscription service. If you dont that means your new to my blog and I want to say welcome and check out their page so you and your family can recieve a box of goodies every month for $19.99! Here’s my referral link Degustabox!(I get points towards a free box if you use it but you don’t have to!) Now on to the contents of this December 2016 box with photos gallore 😊

A huge bag of Butter Popcorn by Wise, Smuckers Fruit and Honey spread in Strawberry Jalopeno 😍, Urbane Grain 3 minute meal, A box of GOOD THiNS, A box of Ricola Lozenges 😍, Kala Beautiful Beans in Simply Peppered and Honey Acres Honey Straws!

Much appreaciated 😊 (p.s. everything has an expiration date in 2017)

Hey everyone! It has been a while since my last post omg Im so sorry I kind of fell off there…😳 BUT IM BACK 😆 I recieved the “MyBestBox” for October 2016, the “Try The World”snack box and the “Loot Anime” box. I have to say I was disappointed in them all. I recorded my unboxings of them and didn’t even bother to upload to my youtube account. I’ll briefly discuss why I was let down. In regards to the MyBestBox which is suppose to be a lifestyle box I got the box for October that was clearly an ALL ABOUT THE FEET box. So the episom salt, gel soak, toeless socks, nail clipper set, foot cream, polish or nail conditioner, toe dividers and snack bar did not blow me away. But they were all useful so Im grateful for that. And believe I should have paid the extra bucks for the clearly exposed boxes other than this one they had to choose from I would have been happier with an variety of useful items without targeting one body part. Due to this I give them a 7 out of 10 with 10 being the best! Packaging, Presentation and the number of items made it worth your wild but I just had other expectations. If you want to see what kind of box you would recieve feel free to check out my prior posts with all their links and etc and enjoy! Sometimes the mystery, suspense and surprise is enough. And they are an box that targets lifestyle so Im sure now that an all about the feet box has been done things will be much more interesting!
Now onto the Try The World box that I recieved earlier today and left a comment on their facebook page regarding my dissapointment. Of course life is not perfect and etc and I did get to order my first box for $4 but that does not mean quality should be compromised! Why did 3 out of 5 of my snacks have a BEST BY 12/2016 DATE and it is a month away from 12/2016…I dont know but that really bothered me. Espeacially when one of them had no best buy date or expiration date at all…. yeeeaaaaa. *(Correction, it did and it was for 2017 so that was a relief!)* Im just going to say that the couple of treats we did eat both in the cookie category were delicious and Im just happy I did not pay $19 or more for this box or I would have been more bothered. Overall, I would recommend them if you don’t mind waiting an additional week or two for your box due to possible customs or whatever reason the box may be delayed. (Trust me I understand things happen but this was just not what I expected for my first box) Getting snacks a month away from being considered NOT so “fresh” or “best tasting” according to the best by date, or being unable to get in contact with someone from their customer care department (If they even really have one) Ah, and paying $19 plus shipping possibly. Im not sure there box every month would be worth it but the experience if the above was improved would make it worth it. Presentation of their box and the card with info of contents in box was a 10 in my book! (10 being the best) Overall, the box was a 7. (Mainly because I know few people would be bothered by the 30 days away from being considered unfresh date.)
Last but not least we have the Loot Anime box! I recieved an apron that will get used, a ramen bowl that has a ton of restrictions and a Manga…thats all I cared about. Everything else was irrelevant to me. I still wish they gave pins like the other boxes vs phone charms but what are you going to do?
Well….that was my brief update of my dissapointment with my October subscription boxes! I shall be back later to insert pics so make sure you check back!
Hey, what’s up guys! So, if you have been following my posts you should know that Im a foodie….. I think so at least lol. So as I scrolled facebook and came across this snack box subscription ad of $4 for your first box (which for the 4 or 5 snack box costs $19) I could not resist! And of course they gave me a referral link to share that gives you the box for the same price or free! Link here Try the world!
I watched a few youtube unboxings where others unboxed a variety of their boxes and there are different types of boxes from a different country every month! Sounded like Universal Yums but better because if you like to cook they have a box for that with herbs, sauces and dried rice and etc from that months Country! So if you are interested just check it out and do tell me if you gave it a try or not. Also, tell me if you tried their snack box (which size) or the one for those who like to cook box! Of course I’ll be back to review my first box from them when it arrives! (Try the world)
Now onto a different topic but goodie, if you shop Avon they have some great gifts for those who spend $60 or more right now. Just use code VIPSET when you are done shopping to have the below pictured added to your cart as a thank you! And I hope your shopping with me at my Avon e-store! Until next post….✌
I cant wait! A lifestyle box for me and my Little one to try out as they sometimes have some very healthy edible goodies in their boxes or smoothie ingredients! Along with some non edible items that are practical/useful! If your interested then use my referral link to check them out My Best Box! You will also be receiving $5 off your first box if you choose to subscribe with my referral link! That takes care of the shipping fee for the most part so that you only pay the cost of the box which is $24.99 and some change. One dollar ($1) to be exact towards shipping. So not bad at all especially for the quality items I have seen others recieve in their boxes via Youtube unboxings.
Also, check out the Founder and her description of the company and more here via Good News Baltimore’s Youtube Channel My Best Box CEO and Founder
Talk to you guys later and thanks for stopping by 😙
It arrived last night….yeeeesssss! Lol, Im such a foodie. I recorded the unboxing but Im thinking now that I should have just waited for this morning since I know I’m more alert and it is just me up! I swear doing videos when your sleepy is never the way to go. But Im always anxious to share what I have gotten while it is in its original state. My little one throws everything and I myself dont know how they got all that stuff in the box because me repackaging it did not work out at all lol. Anyway, heres a way too long unboxing video link for you (18 min….yeeeaaa) and an image to get an idea of what we got this month if you dont want to bother with the video here ➡September 2016 Degusta US unboxing
As always here is a referral link to get your first box at a discounted price! Half off to be exact, so thats $9.99 for your first months box! And $19.99 a month onward with your monthly subscription. Just click here ➡Degustausbox . Unlike what I had thought as I started the unboxing I actually recieved alot of bonus items or additional items that I greatly appreciated! One can never have too much peanut butter and cereal 😊 And I may just give that sleep spray a go. Until next time…..✌
