Gourmet Gift Baskets: From The Heart Gift Tower Review

Gourmet Gift Baskets: From The Heart Gift Tower Review + Giveaway

Each year when the middle of February rolls around, I see more declarations of love from my social media feeds, to late night television. The downside to this is that I am a believer that instead of choosing one date in February to declare our love for loved ones we should show them that love each day of their lives.

In light of this feeling, I think that random acts and loving gifts are wonderful throughout the year. My favorite type of gifts are the ones that are tasty and are also useful in another way such as presented in an attractive tin or boxes. When I saw From The Heart Gift Tower from GourmetGiftBaskets.com I was immediately struck by the attractive boxes and the ability to enjoy the treats and the boxes for months to come.

Gourmet Gift Baskets: Deluxe Junk Food Bucket Review

Gourmet Gift Baskets: Deluxe Junk Food Basket Review + Giveaway

Ever since I began this blog, I have stopped watching movies. There is something about watching something more than an hour, that seems like a huge time commitment on something that I may or may not enjoy.

With my husbands birthday approaching I was thinking of taking a night off and having a junk food and movie marathon with him. I knew that this was the perfect idea and the only thing in question was the snack and junk food that would be included.

Since we are such a junk food house when I saw this collection from GourmetGiftBaskets.com, and saw the Deluxe Junk Food Basket I knew that this would be a good gift for my husband’s birthday and an accompanying movie night.

GourmetGiftBaskets.com: Nostalgic Candy Gift Crate Review

Gourmet Gift Baskets: Nostalgic Candy Gift Crate Review + Giveaway

nostalgic-basketIf there is one way to describe me, nostalgic comes to mind. I love to see things from my youth, and have began a collection of old toys and advertisements.

One thing that always reminds me of my childhood is candy. I remember when I was young, my father would take me to breakfast each weekend, and while he sat and chatted with friends, I would go over to the general store in the same center and purchase a couple of pieces of candy. My choices were usually items that would give me more candy, for less cost.

When I was recently contacted by GourmetGiftBaskets.com, and took a little time to peruse their website, I was immediately struck with gift inspiration – the first thing that caught my eye was the Nostalgic Candy Gift Crate.

The Ginger People: Ginger Rescue & Arjuna Bar Review and Giveaway

Ginger People TrioLet’s be honest, we all live stressful lives and sometimes that stress manifests into stomach issues. Most medicines that are made to help stomach issues are harsh and have less than positive side effects.

Since me and concept of nausea are very familiar I appreciate easy solution that will be as natural as possible. Given that this is a common problem during one of Jason and I’s many discussions he suggested that I try a ginger based solution.

I had done a review for the Ginger People about a year ago, and since they recently released some new products, I was curious to try their new ginger products.

Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome – June 2016 Review

Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome – June 2016 Review

June Mystery Box of AwesomeWhen I was a kid there was a store in the neighboring town that was part thrift store, part supply store and part flea market.  This store had everything from toys to dental tools. My father would take me to this store and I would venture off to find some random item I could up-cycle into a useful something.

As I got older, I saw the genius in a store of this nature and now as a homeowner I find myself missing the store I used to see the passage of time inside. I often wish I could go to this store, walk the isles and pickup a random sampling of items that would be useful for my home.

I am very happy to say that I have discovered that long-lost store in the form of a monthly box. The Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome by That Daily Deal.com is the random equivalent of that long-lost store. Each month no theme is chosen, but rather a selection of random gender neutral items that will undoubtedly meet a need in your life that you never knew was missing.

Whipped Coloring Book Review

Whipped: A Delectable Adult Coloring Book Review and Giveaway

Whipped by Blue Star PublishingIt is no secret that this is a sweet house – and at times a homemade sweet house. I love to bake and I dream of the day that I can decorate as wonderful as I see on Food Network. The intricacy of the cupcakes and cakes are nothing short of amazing and gorgeous!

Since I am unable to re-create these creations in my edible items, I like to express my creativity on paper. The best way to do this and is by coloring, and when I can color sweet treats it is even better. I was excited when I received the Whipped: A Delectable Adult Coloring Book  by Rudy Fig, because it lets me create the combinations I am unable to in reality.

World of Munchies: Sweet Tooth Box Review

World of Munchies: Sweet Tooth Box – Review & Giveaway

International Sweet Tooth BoxAs time passes I have noticed that my taste buds are not what they one were. I tend to run trains on items. Let me explain further – I will get a snack in my head, act as though it is a 5 alarm fire to procure this item, I will then eat only this snack for the next 4 to 6 weeks. As quick as this occurs, the opposite also is true, I get tired of the item almost as quick. This makes life for Jason a little on the frustrated side.

Try as I might to lessen his frustration, I am usually unsuccessful therefore leaving him with fewer snack options than he might prefer. The one thing he always does is encourage me to try new snacks. I am proud to say that with the creation and execution of this blog that is exactly what I have begun doing.

I have had the opportunity in the past to review previous World of Munchies boxes, as they are the perfect way to sample new snacks without the commitment. One of the offerings of boxes that they have is called the Sweet Tooth box. Each Sweet Tooth box you will receive 7-9 items in each box, selected from various international snacks that you may know and may love. The most amazing thing about World of Munchies is was started by the mind of an 11-year-old entrepreneur.

World of Munchies Red, White & Blue Snacker Box Review

World of Munchies: Red, White & Blue Snacker Box – Review & Giveaway

Red, White and Blue Snacker BoxI have mentioned in the past that we are a snack house, and we have yet to meet a snack that we do not like. The problem is that we are 2 different people with unique and individual tastes and we do not always crave the same thing. Every once in a while we both want the same treat or ice cream, but I am a “miner of yummies” in ice cream so Jason now wants his own.

This constant back and forth of taste buds can get expensive quickly, as well as being very unhealthy. I have often thought it would be nice to get a box once a month that would provide us with a sampling of the things we love, while keeping portions in the realms of affordable.

World of Munchies has created a new box called the Red, White & Blue Snacker box. World of Munchies was started by the mind of an 11-year-old entrepreneur. Each month with the Red, White and Blue Snacker box you will receive 7 items in each box, selected from various snacks that you know and love.
