USA Graze Box #1!

This is my first Graze Box! This box just came to the US, and they were offering FREE boxes in order to let people try them out! Want a free box? Use one of my referral links listed at the end of this post! It's the only way to get into this website.

On the website, you can tell Graze what you'd like to try or what you'd like to trash. You can also rate the items that you get as LIKE and LOVE and they will send them to you again in the future! So here's what I got in my first box:

 This is what it looked like on the inside! SO excite to eat all it these things!

 This first thing is the Boston Baguettes. It came with some BBQ relish sauce. I haven't tried this yet, but I am really excited to dig into it! Even if I don't like the sauce, I'm sure the baguettes will be delish!

 This next food item was the Apricot Torte. Not going to lie, these things are ALREADY IN MY TUMMY. They were SOOOO good, and I will definitely get these again! LOVE
 This next item I was sent in the box was called Cookies and Cream. This is one of the desert options, but I haven't gotten a chance to try it. It looks really tasty though!
The last item that I got in the box were these Summer Berry Flapjacks. These were really fresh and delicious, but by the time I got to the third piece, I was full! No joke! But I'd get them again. Like

March Julep Maven Box!

This is what is in Julep's March box! This month, they also retired the "America Beauty" profile and instead replaced it with the "Modern Beauty" profile! I have to say, Julep has really listened to their fans, and I think that's a really great thing for a company to do!

Above are the colors that are coming in the box this month. They are really pretty pastels! That being said, I did skip this month's box, not because I didn't like the colors (on the contrary!) but I just feel like I have too many polishes, too many product, etc. and with Spring coming up, I'm just trying to declutter my life, as you will see in some upcoming posts.

Did you get the box? Let me know which profile YOU wen't with! If you aren't already a Julep Maven, you should check it out HERE! Your fist box is FREE with the code FREE BOX!

Happy Valentines Day!

I just thought I would hop on here and say Happy Valentines Day as well as share this picture that I took while I was shopping at Target. Someone was bitter when they proposed this idea for a Valentines Day candy...Lol. Whether single (like me) or in a relationship, I hope everyone here has a great day!

NOTD: Julep Maven's Julianne

This is Julianne from Julep Maven's February Box. HOW FREAKING PRETTY?! I am IN LOVE with this color, you have no idea. I just think it's the perfect shade of muted blue. I can't get enough of it. Ingrid from that box is going to be the next color that goes on my nails, because that's actually the color that convinced me to get the box. Stay tuned for that post!

Box Opening: BuzzAgent Schick Razor

Mail! Mail! I love mail :) This is from BuzzAgent, and they sent this to me for FREE to try out. Awesome! In the BuzzKit, they included about 10 $5 off coupons for all of my friends as well as a brand new Razor and matching changeable heads! I cannot WAIT to try this, but sadly I'll have to wait a couple more days because I just replaced my razors. It's a disposable one, though, so it won't be long before I come on here and post my review on this razor.

NOTD: "Jade" Kiss Nail Stickers

This is what is on my nails right now. Super cute, right? Well, they are the Kiss brand nail stickers. The design is called "Jade." I wasn't super impressed when I first put these on. Actually, I had a better experience putting them on than the Sally Hansen nail stickers, but I think that's because this was my second try with nail stickers. But the stickers didn't stick super good, and some of them were coming up pretty easily. I did put a clear top coat over then, though to keep them in place. Having said that, these stickers are STILL on my nails, and I think they've been on for almost a week. Yes, they chipped pretty quickly, but they haven't chipped any farther, for the most part. Today is the first day that I'm starting to miss bigger chunks of one or two of the nails, but I've gone to work 3 days this week where I am building stuff with my hands, so I'd say that's not bad.

The other complaint that I had was that there weren't many sizes to pick from, so a lot of my nails had gaps on the sides. So, I made sure the gaps were on the side of my nails that is harder for ME to see, so I barely notice them.

Overall, I think these nail stickers were a fun thing to have. I don't know if the top coat (which is NEW) is what kept these on for so long. I do like that these are cheaper, and I think they are a great alternative to the Sally Hansen nail strips (but only if it has the top coat on it). I'm definitely going to be trying more of these, and now that I've had a more positive experience with nail stickers, I'm definitely going to be trying more brands and posting about them here.

February 2013 Julep Box Opening!

Yay! I love when I have hard days only to go to my mailbox and get showered with nail polish :) 
This is what came in my February Julep Maven Box. I changed from It-girl to Boho-Glam. I've never chosen anything other than these two options, oddly. I was really tempted to try the holographics this month, though. But I just couldn't get these colors out of my head. They were just something that I didn't have.

 The first thing that they included was: a lash crimper and two chocolate hearts. Mama likes chocolate :) They were a nice, unexpected bonus :)
 They also had in there the Freedom Top Coat, which is supposed to make your nail polish act like gel nails, lasting twice as long as normal polish. This was another HUGE reason that I didn't skip this month. I was just so curious about the top coat :P The other box next to it is the Oxygen Nail Treatment. I don't know much about this, but I am excited to try it and see what I think.

These were the actual polished that I got in the box. The orange color is called Ingrid, and the light grey-blue is called Julianne. The colors were not wanting to show up true to color for me at all, so I will paint my nails in the future with them and show them in the daylight soon :)

Let me know what you got! And if you aren't already a maven, you NEED to get your first box. It's awesome and only a penny! Click here to be directed to their site!
