Cravebox - Tasty Favorites

If you've been reading along - you may know that I love cravebox & they could do no wrong in my book. I don't feel the same way anymore.

Its not a bad box - its really similar to a blissmobox. The products are decent. We had homemade guacamole with the purple tortilla chips. I bought more werthers, they are really good. I haven't tried anything else yet. Not too sure about the plentils.

It took them over 2 months to get this box shipped out to subscribers. It seems like they put more energy in their limited edition boxes rather than the monthly ones. They keep coming up with new limited edition boxes and keep delaying shipping for the monthly subscribers. I was on the wait list for months so I'm not going to cancel just yet.

Box Contents
Mystic Harvest Purple Corn Tortilla Chips - 7 oz
Werther's Original Caramel Apple Filled Candy - 5.5 oz
Plentils Garlic & Parmesan Lentil Chips - .8 oz
Crum Creek Soy Nut Mix - 1 oz
Balance Bar Minis in Double Chocolate Brownie & Cookie Dough - .88 oz

Little Black Bag

I finally caved. After months & months of resisting, I just couldn't hold out any longer. Opened my first bag on LBB. I then proceeded to open up 6 more bags within 2 weeks. I can see why people get so addicted. I had to cancel all my accounts :(

I love, love, love this Olivia + Joy bag. Its this cool gunmetal color & its super soft. And its huge. I'm tempted to carry around one of my cats in it.

A gorgeous cargo palette in Toronto.

Michael Marcus polish in purplicious.

Benefit Sunbeam mini & Cargo liquid liner

I paid $54.90 (including shipping). The bag alone retails for $92

I'm addicted to makeup.  I've been trying to spend less so I decided to put up a trade list on MUT. I had no idea what I was in for. I made nearly 30 trades in two weeks! And over $70 on shipping. I got some awesome loot, here's some of my favorites

I LOVE the Muppet Show. I grew up watching it, even had my bedroom decorated muppets. I had no idea this palette existed but I when I saw it, I had to have it.

I really like the marbella liner. I got 2 eyeko skinny liners in olive & purple. A stila smudge stick in oscar fish and stila sparkle liquid liner in curacao.

Who Doesn't like LipSurgence?

Deborah Lippmann's Private Dancer! I was definitely regretted canceling sample society that month. So glad I was able to swap for it.

I love this blush. Its brightens your face & has pretty gold undertones.
I canceled Julep today. So, now I'm down to crave, glossy & my glam (now called Ipsy - wtf?). I was introduced to the madness that is little black bag. I have to cancel, I'm way too addicted! I could open up a new bag everyday. I'll have pics up soon. I signed up for a season of loose button which is based in Canada, another quarterly sub. And I heard that is launching desktop on the 24th & will have updated fall boxes to purchase.

Wantable - Fall is a brand new quarterly makeup subscription. Its not really a subscription as you have to order each one. They are a mobile only site for now, with plans to launch desktop soon. You get 6 full size makeup items for $40. There are 5 different profiles you can choose from - boho, rock rebel, glamour, trendsetter & classic. Each profile has 2-3 different colors to choose from.

I chose the glamour profile in the color deep purple. It comes in this cute little box.

I LOVE the shadow. Its gorgeous!!
Lorac Starry Eyed Baked Eyeshadow Trio in Star Struck. Paula Dorf Cheek Color in Jazzed.
I'm blown away with this box. It has a great value & its all makeup! The only products I don't like are the polish & lip gloss - mostly because I don't like the colors. There is also a sample of perfume (spray) included. I'm definitely checking out their winter box - hope it comes out soon! I realize its not fall yet - a girl can hope :)

Fall Guilty Pleasures

Fall! I can't wait. I LOVE fall - halloween, pumpkin patches, jack o lanterns, tractor rides, breezy days w/ swirls of leaves around. Every fall, I have to buy a few pairs of bath & body works shea butter socks. They are thick, cozy & make your feet so soft. I put body butter on my feet first so they get extra moisturizing goodness. They have really cute ones this year.

They also have pink poodle shea butter socks. They are supposed to last up to 25 washes. I've never really paid attention to how long they last. They are a splurge at $8.50 each but worth it. Even my hubby likes them.
Another thing I like about fall - pumpkin bread! Here is my super healthy (no oil or butter!), moist & yummy recipe.
Souly's Pumpkin Bread - Makes 2 loaves

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ (use all purpose flour if you don't want to use wheat germ)
  • 2 1/2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1 1/3 cup dark brown sugar (I use 1/2 raw sugar and 1/2 brown sugar)
  • 2 t. baking soda
  • 1 t. salt
  • 2 t. cinnamon (I love vietnamese cinnamon - use less though, its much stronger)
  • 1/2 t. nutmeg
  • 1/2 t. ground cloves
  • 1 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 cups pureed pumpkin
  • 4 eggs

Combine dry ingredients. Combine applesauce, pumpkin and eggs separately and add to dry. Stir just until combined. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes.

  • 1/2 - 1T. unsalted butter (optional)
  • cinnamon & sugar mixture (optional)

Melt butter and brush over loaves. Sprinkle with cinnamon & sugar.

Beauty Army

Since I canceled bb, I decided to give Beauty Army another shot. Beauty Army is another monthly beauty box subscription. Only w/ Beauty Army, you get to pick your own samples. You get to choose 6 out of 9 samples. I had a subscription when they first launched back in January. I really liked them at first but eventually, all the good samples were gone so I canceled.

I'm pretty happy w/ this box. The shea terra smells like a dark chocolate bar. I haven't used it yet but I know it will be amazing (love any shea terra). I LOVE the eye coolers. Not only are they cute, they are reusable too. I've used the macadamia oil before. It isn't enough for my frizz but others rave about it so definitely check it out yourself. Only argan oil tames this frizz. I love blush so I'm excited about the Besame. Great box right? Time for me to chose again & its one time use packets, tiny vials of perfume & Bath & Body works shower gel. I've canceled. Maybe I will check them out again in a few months.

Eye Candy Eye Coolers - FS $12
Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment - DS $9.51 1 oz (FS $39.95)
Shea Terra - Dark Chocolate Exfoliating Cream - DS $2.44 1 oz (FS $22)

Are you subscribed to beauty army? Did you skip or cancel? I'm starting to feel a little sampled out.
