img_20160914_234921

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 unboxing20160914_235337

Hello Degusta US box August 2016 😍

20160801_145002

I am in love with this box for it had so many good items! As you can see it had some known items like the Honey Bunches of Oats and Marie Cookies by Goya but the item I thought I would like the least I tried the other day and saved half of the bottle for today! That Pulp Free Aloe Vera water with Mangosteen and Mango Juice drink by ALO is EVERYTHING!  It tastes exactly like Lychee though…..I know because I recieved a pack of Lychee flavored HI CHEW in my July 2016 Universal Yums box that featured Taiwanese snacks! And IRONICALLY this drink is also made in Taiwan….hmmmm 👀 well thats all I can say about that lol. It taste more like Lychee with a hint of mango unless mangosteen tastes similar to lychee which I have never had. In any case this drink excited my taste buds and refreshed me so I immediately logged onto Amazon.com to find it. Well, sadly they only have the version with pulp so I have to check some supermarkets now. The other item that surprised me in this Degusta Box was the Loacker Chocolates called Loacker Rose of the Dolomite! I had only enjoyed the lemons wafers by Loacker that I was able to find in select stores in my area but now I will be searching for these delicious hazelnut and creamy chocolate bites by Loacker! I did try the Chipotle Mayonnaise by Sir Kensington and liked it! I plan on making some tuna sandwiches and using it tommorow. I have had this box for about a week or more now and got to fry some fish two days ago using the grapeseed flour by White Lily that was also included and it did the job! The cow tails by Goetze are not my cup of tea but the little ones love it so thats great for them as a treat. I still have to try the Chai tea by Oregon Chai ones of these days and will be back witb my two cents on that! The meat sticks by Vermont were satisfactory as well as the Popchips Ridges and I will look for them online to buy later. If you are interested in this subscription box it is $19.99 a month and your first box cab be sent to you at $9.99 if you check out my previous blog post entitiled “Patiently awaiting…..”  for the link and coupon code! Enjoy 😘

July 2016 Universal Yums Box!


20160716_181918

This months Universal Yum Yums Box did not disappoint!  The snacks this month came from Taiwan and that is a place I hope to visit some day. There were strawberry flavored corn puffs, pea and sushi flavored chips. Some very DELICIOUSLY seasoned dry noodles called Prince that were meant to eat like chips vs adding water and microwaving. Snacks made with beans and other’s with chocolate that arrived semi melted but after a few mins in the freezer were good to go! This box totally made up for the USA themed box and I look forward to next month when we will recieve snacks from Brazil! I have actually tried my hand at making a couple of popular Brazilian desserts so Im very excited! I’ll be back to share the link to my youtube unboxing and apologize in advance for the viewing image as my phone was dying but I knew I had to record then or half the goodies would be gone by the time my phone was charged. The box lasted only 3 days! If you want to you can check my youtube out its Tiegroovething! *Youtube link for video July 2016 Universal Yums Taiwan Box * Im expecting my first ever Degustaboxus so look out for that video unboxing and blog post. Until next time

Hey there…

 

I have not said anything in a while….hmmmm have I been waiting for some boxes to talk about….I suppose so. Have I been busy? Sort of. Im a learner, I love learning so I utilize today’s technology and social media platforms and video sharing sites to learn and discover all sorts of things for it is a big world out there. Although nothing compares to actually traveling this suffices me for now. I recently learned thing’s about Christianity or rather what many take for granted and dont know. I discovered some great Korean dishes from Maangchi’s channel on Youtube. Several deserts from well known IG members. Found some really awesome and talented unsigned artists and musicians on IG and Youtube…..Awesome lyricists such as Abyssthabyssness and Chev Robinson, Lee England Jr the violinist with AWESOME COVERS! Talented Brazilian singer Henry Wallace (Good luck on EX FACTOR!), Smooth vocals and talented Guitarist/Singer Cedric Johnson (CedricJohnsonmusic on IG), soulful sounding Lauren Cameron, and the Concious MC Dr.Boney to name a few whose music can be found on the Soundcloud and Youtube. Sad to say but mainstream music and artists are not for me. International music/artist like Afro Pop artist Yemi Alade or the Korean Male Pop Group “Big Bang” on the other hand are! Found some great new authors thanks to social media in general and amazon reviews. Whenever, I have downtime I’m learning. Whenever Im bored I’m learning. I truely believe a mind is a terrible thing to waste and nothing is more fun than being able to converse about various subjects or topics. Well, until I receive one of my monthly subscription boxes and fyi I will be trying out the Degustaboxus! (Try code FBMOB9 to get your first box for $9.99 or my code TIESHAG-8C6 for a discount sorry I dont know how much of a discount) I may come here to just encourage such things like setting a goal to learn one new thing everyday! Maybe, I’ll “beat” my face and do a make up review. Maybe I’ll do a book review……maybe an Album review. Ah, I can’t wait for the controversial David Banner Album to drop. Whoever is reading this can feel free to comment. I love to cook and bake so perhaps later on I’ll share some recipes. Hmmmm this has become a open Diary 😂😂 Well until next time. ✌

June 2016 Universal Yums Box….

Hello everyone! Im just going to start out by saying that I was utterly disappointed by the USA snack themed box this month. Compared to the Greece box last month this one was lacking point blank. I dont even want to type about it. I will just leave the link to one of my youtube videos about it below. I made two because at first I didn’t use the flash due to having a low battery and then I re-recorded with flash aka switched phones lol. So heres the link to the second video with the flash for better viewing June 2016 Universal Yums USA Box

Ah man….thats all I will share for now. Kind of busy so I will be back with another post when my Ipsy Bag and/or Eggdrop box for my little one finally arrives! Whichever one comes first. Write you later

OMG! How could I forget???


I did receive my May 2016 Universal Yums Box! But want to give a more detailed review after I have tried and hopefully enjoyed all the treats. But here is a pic of the Greece themed box I recieved 😄 I will be back here in this post to review a little later.

*Update* Okay, so today is Thursday June 16, 2016 8:32PM and after receiving the USA box for June I can say I love this box even more now that it is gone…..well all except for the tea that I shall try tomorrow morning! I forgot to take individual pictures of the items but I did upload a video to youtube and will leave the link below. I have to say that my favorite items were the Bread sticks and the Orange Chocolate bar that had a very very small hint of orange if any! My least favorite items were the Nougat with wafer sides and some sort of nut and those Rose flavored gummies 😵 lol. Just horrible really in my opinion who wants rose scented breath? Well, apparently someone does so I’ll shut up! Write you later! Youtube video for May 2016 Universal Yums Greece Box!

My first Candy Club box and Universal Yums Box! (Former post stated it was the Treatsie box despite the clear uploaded pics of the Universal Yums box, please excuse the error! Sorry Treatsie and Universal Yums for the mix up )
