Graze Box Review!

My 4th Graze Box


  • Fruit and seed flapjak: Rustic rolled oat flapjack with mixed seeds and dried fruits.  This tasted pretty similar to regular grocery store granola bars.  ONE of them I ate (there were 3) had really hard pieces of seeds?  I was unable to chew it.  It was like rocks.  The other two didn’t have them.  I didn’t like them because of that. (it’s not in the picture because I ate it before I took the photo).
  • Mississippi bbq pistachios: These were good.  They reminded me of the bbq flavored sun flower seeds.
  • My Thai: Sweet chili sauce with baked soy bites.  I loved these!!  SO good!
  • Marvellous Macaroon:  Amaretti drops, almond slices, coconut flakes, and white chocolate buttons.  WOOOOOOW This was amazing!!!  I really really liked this.

Birch Box Review March 2013 – THIS has been my favorite box in a long time!


Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator: I tried a similar sample product from birch box before, DDF Brightening Cleanser and I really liked using but it smelled like liquorice.  THIS product doesn’t smell like that, AND I think the micro crystals are even smaller and even more exfoliating and amazing.  I just feel like I am getting part of a facial step (does that make sense?).  Anyway I really liked this and was totally happy getting it in my box this month.


Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream: I don’t regularly use shaving cream.  So this sample wasn’t my thing.  HOWEVER it smelled like blueberry and that’s really fun.  It also comes in sweet pomegranate, yummy almond, and lovely lavender.


La Fresh Eco Beauty Acetone-free Nail Polish Remover: I’ve never used these before.  I am SO glad I’ve finally found them.  The bottle of nail polish remover smells so strong and I have to work at getting the nail polish off.  These didn’t smell really, and they removed the nail polish so easily.  My one complaint is that it says one pad can do 10 nails – it only really did 5 of my toes.  You can travel with them easily.  You can keep one in your purse incase you chip your nail polish terribly and it’d be better if you just removed all of it instead of hide it all day.  I liked it so much I bought three packages.

Madewell for Birchbox Nail Emery Board: Who doesn’t love a sturdy emery board?  And this pattern is sweet!


Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow: I LOVE this!  I’ve heard about BB cream and it’s greatness.  I just didn’t know what BB cream to buy!  Now that I have a sample of this I’m hooked.  It evens out my skin color, it’s hydrating, it’s light, it’s great.

This picture was taken Saturday BEFORE SU lost, but this is how I’d imagine they’d look after the terrible game.  They’re actually watching King Kong, which I kept calling Godzilla (100% on accident not just to annoy them).

Nicholas is all ready for St. Patrick’s day in his Coleman’s Irish Pub T-shirt his Great Grandparents got him.  I’ve been saving this shirt for St. Patrick’s day for months.  It’s white so I was scared it’d get stained before the big day.
