Amazing Graze

I see a lot of subscription boxes out there and although I'm really jealous of some of the cute things people post and the idea of a monthly surprise sounds like a lot of fun I just don't need more random stuff. After years of fighting the good fight I finally have a facial care regimen that works for me and I don't want random products messing with that. But when a friend told me about a snack subscription box it sounded like a really good idea, when I found out my 1st box would be free it sounded like a great idea. 

Here's a not so shocking confession: I am a total workday vending machine snacker. I know it's awful but sometimes I just need a little pick me up and I never seem to be good at keeping up with stocking my desk with snacks. But thanks to Graze, this is no longer a problem. For $6.49 per box (which includes shipping) I now get four snacks delivered to my office each week. If I was really being good I would get the low calorie box, but gosh darn it some of the 200 (or more) calorie snacks sounded so yummy! 

My favorite thing about Graze is the customization of the box. Graze lists all the available snacks on their website and subscribers can rate each one: trash (don't send to me) , try , like (send occasionally) and love (send frequently). Right after signing up I went in and "trashed" all the snacks with flavors or ingredients I knew I wouldn't like - seriously world, stop trying to make kale chips a thing. And then I patiently waited for my first (free!) box to arrive. 

Right off the bat I noticed the quirkiness of the packaging, which made getting snacks a little more fun. 


The inside of the box was very neatly packed and attractive, the card provided me info about Graze as a newbie


The card also had all the snack nutrition information on the back 

 
Here's what my box has: 

Jelly Doughnut -Like


Brownie flapjack-Love


The British Barbecue - Like


And Salted Fudge and Peanut Cookie - Like


The snacks are a little small for my taste but do include filling ingredients , lots of nuts and oats. So far everything has been very tasty but I'm hoping to get to try new stuff before getting repeats. My only complaint is I wish each box included five snacks, they even say on the website most people have their box delivered to the office and it'd be nice to get a snack for each day of the week. The Graze price per snack is a little higher than vending machine snacks but I feel it worth it because it has more high end and natural ingredients. Overall I'm calling this subscription box a win. 

New Graze subscribers get their 1st and 5th box free when they use a referral code, which I just so happen to have:

Hello Fresh Review

One problem with our last house was that the kitchen was a little small, but with our new kitchen we really have no excuse to not cook at home. To start us off on the right foot I started a Hello Fresh subscription.

Subscribers get to select from 8 meals on the weekly menu and can get two or four portions of each meal and 3, 4 or 5 meals per box. We get 4 meals and the cost of the box is $10 / portion / meal - so $80. Each menu also features one premium meal  for an extra $5 / portion.
For our first box I'm sharing step by step with two meals here because I don't think just showing one gives a fair overview of the box. Each box comes with the meat individually packaged, the ingredients per meal all in one brown bag and a recipe card that shows pictures, lists out materials needed and provides step by step instructions. It seems like all the meals involve six steps.

The first meal we made was a fish dish.

The first step was to roast the potatoes with oil in the oven.

Saying Goodbye

If we're friends on Facebook than you might have picked up on why I didn't blog last week - my grandmother passed away last Wednesday. I know I said I want to keep this blog focused on specific topics and less emotional one but the reality is I write it and while I have a whole list of topics I had planned on blogging last week and this week I feel like it's just not right. I still have a few "personal" posts up - my one about being motherless and childless had some readership over the past week being that Sunday was Mother's Day - and today I'm going to add one more personal post. As y'all know my husband and I are moving in June and I'm so glad that on our last "social" day together (we saw her several days in the hospital before she passed) we got to show my Grandma our new house. Our current condo isn't very wheelchair friendly so for the past few years we have been going out to eat on holidays and we were really excited to hos…

Wardrobe Wednesday - Currently Craving

Although my clothing is mostly unpacked and hanging in the closet I still have all my shoes and accessories in boxes and although I purchased a few items in May as part of my Wardrobe Makeover blogging about them is going to have to wait another week. Today though instead of talking about what I have bought I thought I'd share a few items that I'd like to buy.
Society Plus Whimsy Bow Skirt $52.79 I love this skirt so much, which also comes in blush BTW, and I pretty much want to copy the entire look here. This skirt is named after the Whimsy and Wonder blog and the bow and length really matches my style. I feel like I already have a blush skirt so I should get the purple but I also feel like purple is better in fall and winter so I should wait to purchase. Sam Edelman Yumi Heeled Sandal $120 Mules are really in style right now and trend reports indicate this will carry into the fall. I had a nude pump on my wardrobe wish list for the year and I've yet to find one so I tho…

Summer Beauty

I feel like Memorial Day is really the kickoff to summer but if you want to be technical yesterday was the first day of summer and it got me thinking about how I change up my beauty routine for summer. I know that it's recommended to change up beauty routines seasonally but I find that I can get away with the same routine for fall, spring and winter  - but summer is a different story and I find myself with different needs during the hot and humid Memphis summer months. Here's some of my summer beauty favorites.
Ogx Quenching Sea Mineral Moisturizing Lotion $7.99 I love this lotion because it's not to thick but not watery thin and it does a good job of keeping skin soft and moisturized without being greasy - plus the nice light sea scent is great for this time of year.
Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt $19 This shampoo scrub is great once a week for gently deep cleansing and get hair squeaky clean - I find it really preps hair to accept the moisture o…

Sephora Play The Iconic Edition

In addition to my regular Play box this month I also received a special edition box exclusively available to Rouge VIB members for $20
This bag features six high end iconic beauty items and a style book. I got it mostly out of curiosity to try the products inside. Here's what's included: La Mer - The Moisturizing Soft Cream $170
This is one of the most famous (and expensive) skin creams in the world. It certainly smells nice and makes the skin feel soft and smooth. For the price point though I'd have to give the full sample jar a try to make a decision because $170 per ounce is a lot of money and I do like the moisturizer I use currently.
Guerlain Radiance Face Primer $74
Ok, so here's where I have a problem with this product - if I'm using an expensive moisturizer to give me "natural radiance" than why do I need a $74 primer to give me radiance? This goes on very smooth and does give a nice soft radiance but I feel like there are other products out there…
