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:

10 Year Challenge

Earlier this week I shared an image encouraging people to think about their accomplishments over the past ten years rather than how their looks have changed and listed all the positive things that have happened in my own life. It's not that I mind sharing pics of what I looked like 10 years ago but just sharing a picture doesn't tell the whole story. I had a lot of people respond congratulating me on my accomplishments and while I appreciate that it made me realize my intention was never to brag or say oh, look how great my life has been because the past ten years have been years of struggle and success.
Here you see a girl who thinks she's the life of the party - she's 24 and has practically no responsibilities but I don't envy her or wish I could return to that lifestyle.
Meanwhile, you look at this 34 year old woman and you see she's changed the way she treats her hair, she has some lines around the eyes and roundness to her face that wasn't there befo…

Timeless Style of a Natural Stone Watch

Hello Friends! I hope 2018 wrapped up nicely for you and you're watching out for opportunities in the new year. I love gifting to others but let's be real - I also love treating myself which is why I'm so excited to be wearing a new watch into the new year! Plus- it's perfect for my New Year's resolution to be on time more in 2019. Don't worry - I have a treat for you too at the end of this post.

Last year I received a beautiful wooden watch (which I still love BTW) but there have been times when I 've  wanted something a little more elegant on my wrist. The folks at Jord must have been reading my mind because they just released the new Sier Arcadia collection featuring interchangeable leather and mesh bands and natural stone faces. Each style is truly beautiful but I was drawn to the Sodalite and Gold style because it's unique from any watch I've seen. I tend to wear a lot of blues so this unique style really compliments my wardrobe. The only oth…

Hello Kitty Tea

A few months ago I was scrolling on instagram and I saw some posts about a place called The Hello Kitty Grand Café. Now I had stopped by the Hello Kitty Café food truck when it rolled through Memphis (check out my post on that here) but this looked to be taking the experience to the next level. After digging into it I discovered that The Hello Kitty Grand Café was not far from my in-law’s home in Southern California and lucky for me we had trip already planned. The Hello Kitty Grand Café operates with several functions – the front section of the location operates just like the food truck with a menu of sweets and drinks, anyone can walk in for counter service and there are a few tables in addition to some photo spots available. In the back is The Bow Room which offers a pre-fixe tea menu during the day and turns into a cocktail lounge in the evenings. Reservations are currently taken through Yelp and open up 30 days in advance- while weekend reservations can be hard to come by its a l…

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…

Birthday Discounts

Woohoo! It's my birthday week y'all! Birthdays are always a great time for brands to make customers special and each year I'm able to take advantage of some pretty good discounts in July so I thought I would share the love and talk about some of my favorite discounts and how to get them.

My absolute favorite discount is from Kendra Scott! During your birthday month you can receive one regular item at 50% off. It's your first time you'll have to show your id in store and sign up for their email list but then once they have you on file you can just go into the store and say that you would like to apply your birthday discount to your purchase and give your email address. This year I purchased the Tatiana Long Pendant Necklace which usually sells for $175. This necklace takes the look of the popular Rayne necklace and really amps it up.  
If jewelry is your thing you can also get a $10 credit from Charming Charlie - this discount is sent to Charm Rewards members at the…
