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:

Custom Hair Care with Formulate

I've had short hair most of my life, but the past few years I have been growing my hair out and one thing has become very clear - long hair is a commitment. And long hair that has been color treated for years is a project, which is why I was so excited when the team at Formulate reached out to have me try their new custom shampoo and conditioner. Even better yet - we have teamed up to give one lucky reader their own custom set for FREE!

Enter GIVEAWAY here! Getting hair care customized for your hair sounds complicated but the process was very simple as a consumer - I took a brief survey about my hair's current condition and what my hair goals were - you can pick up to five. I have a pretty oily scalp so that was my top priority but color protection, heat protection,. frizz and volume are also my concerns. I was then able to select my scent and strength - I like a strong scent in my shampoo that leaves a light linger and selected the green apple - I've been getting complime…

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…

This is Us

Y’all this year I was so excited for our anniversary activity - the 2nd anniversary traditional gift is cotton and there was a cotton field nearby. The website said “mid October” would be the perfect time for pictures so I booked a session for our anniversary weekend on the 21st. We stop by the field the day before to check it out and it was all gone. Even though no harvest date was listed on the website a week earlier it had since been updated that the cotton was harvested that Friday – seriously, they couldn’t have given one more weekend for photos, grr! All the other cotton fields were too far away so I cried how our anniversary was ruined. We wound up moving photos to the same spot where we took our wedding photos and brought along the dogs to get our family Christmas card photo. This session did not go as well as I would have liked – Because I didn’t plan to originally have the dogs sweetie was not freshly groomed. My brand new sweater got snagged by one of the dogs getting in and…

Wardrobe Wednesday - What I wore to Memphis Fashion Week

I must admit I'm pretty proud of the outfits I put together for Memphis Fashion Week so I figured they deserved a blog post of their own. I definitely feel like spending four day around fashion and really trying to put my most stylish foot forward set me on track to up my fashion game this year, plus the VBxTarget collection released right after so that helped too (I'll have a post on that soon). Overall though these four outfits were a good example of mixing what I already owned with new and restyling some existing pieces in new ways.
Earrings: Kate Spade - these are out but there's always cute ones on sale Necklace: Anthropologie (this is from 2013) Top: Nicole by Nicole Miller
To start of the events I wore my most casual outfit to the kickoff event. I was under the mis-impression that Nicole Miller (the headliner designer for MFW 2017) would be there so I wore a Nicole by Nicole Miller top. It's actually off the shoulders but got pulled up a little from me razing m…

Hostess with the Mostess

One of my favorite things is to entertain. Since moving last summer we have hosted some kind of event at least once a month and while we keep talking about slowing down it doesn't look like we'll stop anytime soon. Party hosting can be a lot of fun but it can also be exhausting, especially if you aren't prepared, so I've pulled together my "best practices" so you can learn from my mistakes and make your next gathering a little less stressful. The first step of course is to determine what kind of gathering you'll be hosting - we've hosted everything from Thanksgiving dinner with all the fancy crystal and china to a casual come on over for burgers on the grill but I think my favorite event that we've hosted so far has been a baby shower for our sweet friends.

Once you know what kind of event you're hosting think about the guest list and how you'll invite everyone - for just a gathering of our friends we use facebook but if you want to be …
