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:

Sensible Portions

I'm Sometimes you have to recognize your strengths and when it's time to outsource . For me a healthy lifestyle is not a strength. I love the idea of eating small healthy meals and working out everyday but then I get hangry and eat anything in sight. Or I have a busy weekend and don't have time to meal prep, and then I'm screwed for the week and one bad week turns into a bad month, and a bad year and a decade of gaining weight. So, when a sorority sister posted a meal plan she had found success with I was very interested. Shaun and I tried a similar program last year but it was very expensive ($170 for one person for 5 days) That's a great investment if you need to lose 10 or 20 lbs but when you have a lot to lose you need a long term plan that is viable from a time, nutrition and financial aspect. 
Long term it's still pricey but I was very impressed with the value and results of sensible portions and decided to give it a try. Like most meal plans the plan is …

Blue Vibes Living Room

I'm a pretty decisive person , so when we moved into our home in 2017 I had a pretty good idea of how I wanted to decorate most of the rooms and to me the living room is the most important. The living room is the heart of the home - it's where the family relaxes after a long day at work, where guests are entertained and one of the first impression you get of someone's home and style. But in 2017 decorating the living room I wanted just wasn't in the cards - but I'm a patient person when I really want something and was willing to wait.
Just like when I was planning our wedding when planning our home décor I turned to pinterest to find inspiration and hone in on what I was looking for. I knew that I wanted a blue velvet tufted sofa and quickly had about 20 on my new home board - but eventually one photo stood out and became the "pinspiration" for our living room.

Vineyard Vines for Target Picks

The annual Target collaboration is something I look forward to all year. From the time when the announcement is made until the look book is released I get antsy with anticipation and then once the look book comes out I scour over it and plan what I will get from the collection.
I love these collabs because a. I love target b. I love getting designer style at prices I can afford and c. target tends to collab with brands that don't offer plus sizes so it's a way for me to participate in a style I enjoy. This year's collab is with Vineyard Vines and I am PUMPED for the collection to be released tomorrow so I figured y'all might enjoy seeing my top picks from the collection.



This pink pullover is the target collection version of the VV Shep shirt. These are great for layering and simple classic style pieces. Since this is a spring collection I imagine this will be very lightweight. The whale shorts is quintessential VV and just adorable. They look to be a little short f…

Vi Peel

2018 Update: Hello Internet! Welcome to my most popular blog post - I presume you're here because you're considering getting a facial peel. Please keep in mind this is an old post and my photo quality is not great. Please feel free to read and enjoy but I do want to let you know that as the years have passed I have taken a more proactive approach with my skin care and I do not get frequent peels. If you'd like to see my modern approach to skincare check out some of my other beauty posts and I'd love for you to connect with me on Instagram to keep up with my latest and greatest recommendations.

Hello! So I got my first Vi Peel which I was super excited about. Since the Botox post was popular I figure y'all would like this too. Besides, it's well established I'm beyond any sense of privacy or shame here.
I got my first peel years ago - a mild Glycolic peel added onto my fac…

Go WILD, Y'all

I'm writing this post with a serious case of the Mondays as I'm recovering from Go Wild this past week. Go Wild is the annual conference run by the Wild for Planners group and it is so much fun! This year's conference was in Nashville and while there is was announced that 2018 will be in Austin, TX. In addition to bringing planner enthusiasts together this event also presents the opportunity to hear from great speakers, meet planner  / planner goodies suppliers and the part that people to notice the most - awesome swag.   I first found out about the group last year when some planner girls I followed posted on instagram about the conference. To an outsider it looks like oh fun, planner girls gathering and getting tons of swag - I want to go! But the reality is it's so much for than that and to be perfectly honest if you're only interested in the swag you'd be better off staying home and going on a shopping spree. Since everyone wants to know the most though wha…
