February Favorites

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! As it’s the end of the month, I thought that it would be the perfect time do my February favorites. I have a good and fun mix this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a few favorites from my February BoxyCharm box, and if you haven’t read that I’ll link it down below. My first Boxy favorite is the Ace Beaute Nostalgia palette. This is a 15 pan palette, you get a mix of mattes and metallics and the color range is great. I’m having a lot of fun with this palette, all of the shadows are nicely pigmented, you get a great color payoff and they blend really nicely. I definitely recommend this if you want a fun palette.

My next Boxy favorite is the Wander Beauty Double Date Lip and Cheek. This is a double layer balm that can be used on the lips and the cheeks. The first layer is a nice light pink that builds really nicely and blends well and that is in the shade Rendezvous. The second layer is a shimmer free balm that gives a nice glow and hydration and that is in the shade Swipe. You also get a little mirror on the second layer, making this perfect to throw in your bag. I personally like this more for the lips than the cheeks, but from when I tested it on the cheeks it did look and feel nice.

My second to last beauty favorite and last Boxy favorite is the Saint Luxe Beauty Limited Edition Liner Duo. This is a set of two brown toned lip liners, the first Love Letter, is what I would call a lighter cinnamon brown and the second, Secret Admirer, is a darker more chocolate brown. These are really smooth and creamy when you apply them and they’re long wearing. Definitely recommend if you’re looking for brown liners.

And my last beauty favorite is my Valentine’s Day makeup look. I did a post all about this look, how I did it and the looks I did leading up to Valentine’s Day, which I’ll link below. I like this look a lot, it’s bright and fun and I’m really happy with how it turned out.

Moving on I have a fashion favorite, and it’s my Valentine’s Day outfit. I usually like to wear something in some shade of pink, this year it was really cold and snowy, so I thought this was the perfect time to wear the cropped sweater I got for Christmas. I think it’s adorable and it paired well with the makeup look I did.

My next favorite is weather favorite and it’s the snow we got. I always want snow during the winter months and we don’t always get it, but we did for a couple days and it was really fun.

Moving on I have a food favorite and it’s this Honey Mustard Snack Mix from Costco. This has five different things in it, honey mustard and onion pretzel pieces, seasoned almond poppers, honey roasted sesame sticks, honey roasted almond splits and savory chickpeas. These are so, so good, the pretzel pieces are my favorite. I definitely recommend these if you’re looking for a good snack.

And my last favorite is a music favorite. This month I had a little playlist of love songs and such for Valentine’s Day and I really liked it. It had Take That, Eric Clapton, The Doobie Brothers, Little Mix and more. I think themed playlists are so fun, and if it’s not something you do already, I would recommend it. 

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what your February favorites were. 

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great February :).

Snack Crate Unboxing and Review

Hi everyone,

Today I have a fun post for you. I recently discovered Snack Crate, which is a monthly subscription box where you get snacks from all over the world. I’m always down to try foods from different countries so this seemed like a fun thing to try out. Because this is my first box I got to choose which country I wanted it from and I chose the UK.

So when you first open it there’s a Snack Crate sticker and a pamphlet that gives you information about the country and tells you about the snacks in your box. SC1

Under that is the snacks and they’re wrapped together in tissue paper that’s sealed with a Union Jack sticker.

SC2

And then there’s your snacks. In this box, which is the mini, you get six. Two bags of chips and four sweets. Full disclosure, I did open the chips before I took these pictures because I was a little hungry when I received the box.

SC3

The first snack we have is Walker’s French Fries in Worcester Sauce flavor. I know that Walker’s is Lay’s UK division so I figured it would be a solid chip. I was super intrigued by these because of the flavor. I like Worcester sauce so I was hopeful that I would like these and I definitely do. These look exactly like French fries, they’re light and crispy and the flavor is spot on. They’re tangy and savory and I would definitely buy a bigger bag of these.

The second bag of chips is the Nando’s Peri-Peri Chicken Grooves. I watch quite a few British YouTubers so I hear a lot about Nando’s and it’s on my list of places to eat in the UK. These are groove cut, so they’re like Ruffles. Taste wise I would compare these to Chicken Top Ramen but with more spice. They’re very peppery with a citrus hint.

SC8

Moving on to the sweet side, the first thing we have is Millions Vimto. I had to do a little bit of research on this one because I didn’t know what Vimto was, it’s a juice drink with grapes, raspberries and blackcurrants. These are chewy candy balls and they’re pretty good. Now that I’ve had these I’d like to try a glass of Vimto and see what it’s like in juice form.

Next up we have the Wham Original Bar. This is a taffy bar that is really fruity, tangy and has little sour pieces that give a great pop of flavor. I liked this a lot more than I thought I would and this is the type of candy I would go for if I wanted something fruity.

The second to last candy we have is Cadbury Twirl. We do have Cadbury in the US, but it’s not the exact same products. Because I love Cadbury chocolate, I was excited to see this. You do get two in the pack, but for this I only needed one. What these are is milk chocolate fingers that are flaked on the inside, then covered in smooth chocolate on the outside. This has to be one of the best candy bars I’ve had. It’s really light and soft on the inside and you get a really great, true chocolate flavor. I would definitely recommend trying one of these if you haven’t.

And the last candy we have is Cadbury Crunchie. I’ve heard a lot about these and always thought it sounded interesting because it’s chocolate on the outside and honeycomb on the inside. I personally haven’t had any experience with honeycomb flavored candy, but this is really good. It’s light, brown sugary and sweet without being overly sweet. I would 100% eat this again.

That about wraps it up for this post, overall I quite like Snack Crate and this is something that I would do again.

Until next time, you can never try too many subscription boxes and enjoy your snacks :).
