Girls' Night In Cravebox is HERE!

When I got home today, I came home to this wonderful teal box! Yes, Cravebox .Not just any Cravebox, but the one I have been anxiously anticipating. The Girls' Night In Box. And I was so surprised to see it on my counter when I got home (my fiance' got the mail first). It got here super fast. This box was made just for a night in, with some comfy clothes, good conversation, and an opportunity to just relax.

Without further ado here is the Cravebox I have been waiting for

Girls Night In Cravebox


Yummy. This cappuccino mix is good cold or hot. You can also use this mix in with your regular coffee instead of cream and sugar. This would be a great beverage to have next to a fire and a good book. 


I love Tree Hut products. I received a sugar scrub from a Cravebox months ago, and I loved it. The Moroccan Rose hand cream is made with Argan and Rose Hip Oil, which provides natural anti-aging benefits and hearing property. This hand cream went on nice and smooth, and a floral scent, and did not leave my hands feeling greasy at all. This travel size hand lotion is going to be perfect for my purse. 


I did not expect this water to be so flavorful. This was the first item to go, out of my box. I got one sip and then it went to my other half. If you like less flavorful Strawberry flavor, adding a little water to it works good. 


I have been looking for a nice lip balm with a little tint, and here comes Cravebox to the rescue. I have always loved Neutogena products, and I am sure this lip balm will do the name justice.  I look forward to having a lip balm that I can use, without any lipstick. I usually like to have a little color to my lips, and this will be perfect for a more natural soft look, all while moisturizing them as well.


I have never heard of recovery (hangover) patches. I have recently seen some recovery drinks that are said to take the hangover away. I have not used these yet, but when I do I will let you know. The Zaca patch is said to help you feel great in the morning, clear headed, with bright eyes, and feel better. 


Fox added a couple need nail polishes to the Cravebox, promoting their shows The Mindy Project and New Girl.  The New Girl nail color, is a light pink. The Mindy Project color is a Glittery Deep Royal Purple. Both are very pretty. And, I always love getting nail polish. Fox also added in a New Girl and Mindy Project nail file! I am set to get my manicure on!


This is a great addition to the box, and I am a big fan of good wine. I also like to try out new and different wine, so this would be a great opportunity. The NakedWines.com website is great, and have many different varieties of wine. The only thing, however, is that you have to buy 6 bottles of wine before they will ship. The cheapest bottle I found was around $14.99 (red wine). Overall, I think this is a great opportunity to try out online wine services.   I would love to hear other people's experiences with NakedWine.com.



I instantly fell in love with this scarf. It has a great indian/ boho feel to it, it is super soft, and full of beautiful colors and designs. I would have actually paid more for the box if I would have known that this was in there, as I would be hopeful that some of the proceeds would go to Warriors in Pink . A little bit about Warriors in Pink: Ford created Warriors in Pink and the line of clothing and gear with 100% of the proceeds going towards the fight against breast cancer. I could not think of a better organization! I feel lucky to been given a scarf from Warrior in Pink clothing line, and even luckier to have learned about Warriors in Pink. If you would like to see more of the Warrior in Pink's clothing you can go HERE.

My Verdict, is that this box is by far the best box I have received yet. Yes, I know I have said that about most my Craveboxes, but this one was over the top excellent. All these wonderful quality products for only $14. I am very pleased, once again, by Cravebox!

If you are interested in signing up to get your own Cravebox, you can HERE, or if you would like to see more of their wonderful and artfully curated boxes I have reviewed you can HERE, HERE or HERE.

Until Next Time. 

Stay Tickled Pink,


Today I am going to share with you for Tip Top Tidbit Tuesday  a recipe that has become a hit in my house. What I really like about this recipe is that it is quick and healthy at the same time. 

This is what you are going to need to make this delicious meal:

 This recipe is perfect for the summertime or to bring along with you on a picnic, since the chicken breast is great the next day as well.

The inspiration behind this recipe was the McCormick Southwest Sweet n' Smoky seasoning (no salt), that I received in my Cooking Light Selects Fast Meals Cravebox. (Step 1).

Veggies and Sahale Mix Used (Steps 3 and 4):

Chicken Breast Ready to Go (Step 6):

 Finished 30 Minute Southwest Spring Chicken Salad

 I hope you enjoyed this recipe. I am no expert chef, but this was very delicious. Let me know if you try out this recipe. Also,  I would love to hear any great recipes you would like to share. I am always looking for  healthy recipes that can be made quickly.

Until Next Time.

Target's First Beauty Box

I am very excited to see that one of my favorite stores has decided to join in on the Beauty Box bandwagon!

Cost $5

Each box will include 5 fashion, beauty, skin care, and nail care products. Each box is also said to contain special offers to keep you look fab. How can you resist? And the price is right. 

Each box is to ship in about 4-6 weeks, so we have to anxiously wait for this new box. 

Stay Tickled Pink,

RealBeanz the Brooklyn in a Bottle has visited Seattle

 I have to tell you a little bit about a recent delicious product that I had the chance to try. REALBEANZ.  Right away I have to tell you that this is the best coffee drink I have had, and I am in Seattle, where no Seattlelite goes without their daily caffeine intake, usually in the form of a cup of coffee.  So you would think I would not be liking a brand of coffee made all the way in Brooklyn, New York.  However, RealBeanz has officially won me over. 

 I have never really been into the big name brand retailer bought coffee drinks, because they were just loaded with calories and sugar. Quite the contrary though, RealBeaz, is not one of those brands at all. The only bad part is that it is impossible to find in Washington. The closest location to buy at a retailer is in Oregon, about  240 miles away. 

Needless to say, RealBeanz was very nice to send me a case to try. I had been wanting to try this talked about, tweeted about, intagramed about, RealBeanz drink for, FOREVER.  Why would you ask? Well, this leads me to the Bachelorette and Bachelor show.  I am an avid Bachelorette and Bachelor fan, and I watch every season. I have tended to keep up with some of the contests on their social media sites, and notice that a couple of my favorites from past seasons love RealBeanz.  One of the local Seattlelite Bachelor contestants, Lindzy Cox, tweeted about RealBeanz HERE, the sweetest Kacie Boguskie, and Graham Bunn did a great YouTube video about RealBeanz that you can see HERE and HERE, and Ms. OverAnalyst, herself,  Jenna Burke, tweets and instagrams her love for the drink often, and also works with RealBeanz. Thus, my intrigue into this drink I could find NO WHERE in Washington.

I was so excited to see this amazing box get to my home a couple weeks ago. Look how awesome the box is. Makes me want to move to New York, Brooklynn to be exact, right now.

I waited to post my review until I drank the very last one. I was trying to savor the goodness of Real Beanz to the very end. You can feel my sadness today, as I drink my last one! Haha.

Here are the flavors:

  • ENERGIZED Iced Cappuccino;

  • RESIST Iced Mocha;
  • RELAX Iced Vanilla Nut;

  • FOCUS Iced Caramel;
  • TRIM & FIT Diet Cappuccino; and


After reading the website and tasting the coffees,  I am thoroughly impressed with RealBeanz. Not only are each drink lower in calories, especially the Diet and Coconut Water drinks, but RealBeanz has made it these drinks to help get through the day. Each bottle of RealBeanz is infused with herbs , floral extracts and 100% natural ingredients that help utilize your lifestyle desire (Relaxing, Focusing, Energy, etc.) 

Energized Iced Cappuccino has Ginseng, which helps give you a boost; Pantotetic Acid, which helps burn calories in to energy; Vitamin B12, which helps metabolism; and more all infused into the drink to help energize you without leaving you crashing afterwards.

My favorite drinks, yes, I have two were the Diet Cappuccino and the  Refresh Cappuccino with Coconut Water.  (Only 70 calories per drink!!) However, they were all very tasty.

Overall, these drinks were a hit in my book. I appreciate that a company is making a coffee that is not just focused on giving out caffeine highs, but also helping to curate a great drink, while also keeping in mind the health of the consumers at the fore front as well.

Now I only wish, wish, wish, these were sold in Washington! Woe is me!  I am out of RealBeanz! Sad face!

If you are interested in RealBeanz or would like to find a retailer near you, or order online you can HERE.

Have you tried RealBeanz before, if so, let me know what you think?

Until next time

Best of April- Ipsy AND Birchbox

I try and usually post the boxes or bags that I get soon after I receive them, or as soon as I can. However, for April's Ipsy Glam Bag and Birchbox, I have decided to do a best of April picks.  Change things around a little bit.

Without further ado here are the boxes and bags.


What was included:
  • Beabombshell  Blush in Beach Please

  • Two Cosmetic Heartache Duo Eye Shadows

  • Sexy Hair Soy Renewal Argan Oil

  • Sation Nail Lacquer for Ipsy in Love at First Bite; and

  • Pretty in Pink Glam Bag


Beabombsehll Blush in Beach Please

This was a full size blush, and let me tell you it is awesome. My first reaction when I opened it, was that it was not my color. It looks hot, hot pink. However, I wanted to give it a try. After using it, a little goes a long way with this one, I thought it was just perfect. I does give you that just pinched my cheeks, pink, looks, which I love.  What really impressed me about this blush, is that it did not fade throughout the day. Many of the times I will put blush on in the morning, and then mid through the day, I wonder if I had even put any one. This Beabombshell blush really impressed me.  And this retails for $16 in the stores, so I already paid for my Ipsy bag.  Wonderful!

Two Cosmetic Heartache Duo Eye Shadows

I have always leaned more towards neutral browns and earthy colors on my eyes, until recently. A couple eye shadows that I have received lately have been pink tones. I also have read a couple articles on using your blush as an eye shadow. So I thought I would give it a try. I didn’t think I could pull it off. However, the pink tones fit perfectly, and look so natural on the eye lids. You add a little black eyeliner, and it adds that extra POP. I really love changing my style and makeup up here and there, so this was a great eye shadow duo to receive.

And Next...



I first have to tell you that I was so excited for this box. I anxiously awaited when they first revealed that they were teaming up with Women's Health. But did not know when they were sending them out.  So I was excited to see it was April’s box. I had actually thought the box would be a limited edition box.  The only thing I was hoping out of this Women’s Health magazine was something geared more towards health. I do not think any of the products really projected healthy physical or mental living, just to take care of the beauty side of an individual. That being said, I still loved, loved my box.

Here is what was included:
  • J.R. Watkins Hand and Cuticle Slave;

  • Kiehl’s Powerful- Strength Line Reducing Concentrate;
  • Mirenesse Glossy Kiss Lipstick;

  • Nexxus Youth Renewal Rejuvenating Elixur; and
  • BONUS:  Simple Revitalizing Eye Roll-On; and

  • 1 year of Women's Health Magazine.


Simple Revitalizing Eye Roll-On

This is amazing. I had used an eye cream before with a similar tip, but was not a roller-ball. I think this roller-ball is so great for the eyes. It will not put as much pressure as using your fingers, thus lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Also. this stuff really works. I have been using it every night before I go to bed, and I really can see the difference in the morning. I see less dark circles when I wake up, and firmer skin. A winner in my court!

1 year of Women's Health Magazine

I know this is not a product that I can use right now, as I just put my postcard in the mail to start my subscription. However, I love this magazine. I used to have a subscription a couple years back, and for some reason it got cancelled. So I was so excited to see a 1 year free offer from Birchbox. What I think is pretty great of Birchbox and Women's Health Magazine is that they also gave the option to get $10, if you do not want to magazine. $10 Pays for the Birchbox. I am very impressed!

Overall, Yes, it was hard to pick to, but I thought I would do something diffferent. If you are interested in seeing what has been in other Ipsy Glam Bags or Birchboxes, you can go HERE or HERE

What was your top picks this month?

Until next time

KLUTCHMom Unboxing and Shakeology Review

I have been very excited to receive this box to review, as I have heard so many good things about KLUTCHClub all together. From KLUTHCclub's Women Box to their Men Box, and now the KLUTCHMom Box. I was just so excited to see a new theme to KLUTCHClub box, and a new array of products.  And KLUTCHMom did not disappointment me at all.

KLUTCHMom box is focused on providing products to help moms (parents) in being  healthy role models.  Nothing impresses on kids more than their parents actions and habits. . From you healthy actions and habits, you promote healthy habits in your children. KLUTCHClub knows this is not always an easy task, so they built KLUTCHMom box to help.  Each box not only contains items for the kids, but items for Mom and the whole family as well.


KLUTCHMom April Box


I had downloaded DailyBurn to my phone a couple months ago, and thought it was a great app. However, I was not wanted to upgrade and pay for a membership.  Very excited to see a 2 month membership in the box. I also think it is great to promote exercise option for busy moms.


KLUTCHMom must be reading my mind, because I was just thinking that this would be great for our little one. Since me and my fiance’ love Celestial Seasoning Sleepytime Tea as well, and it really does make you sleepy. ( You can read HERE). I would probably serve this iced though, as she has not really gotten into drinking hot things like tea.


I have never heard of Own, but I love trying out new face cleansers. This one is said to make one look younger and help the face look for revived even after 4 hours of sleep. Count me in! I am one of those only goes through the day with 4 hours of sleep, and anything to help to look more alive is great.

This soap not only smells great, but it is perfect for the lady in the home who does all the dishes (or man, if that is the case). I am the worst at just washing, washing, and more washing, and then my hands are cracked and hurting at the end of the night. This soap contains aloe vera gel, olive oil and a unique blend of natural essential oils, made to moisten your hands not dry them out. Thank you KLUTCHMom for thinking about our dry hands!


All I can say is Yummy. Between our little one, my fiance’ and myself, these were devored.  We try not to give the little one many sugary foods, but these are made our of 100% fruit, so we gave in a little. Our little ones thoughts on Surf Sweets come in from the words of her favorite cartoon, Dora the Explorer, “Yum, Yum, Yum, Delicioso!”


This is an app for the Apple products in the home, packed full with magical stories for the little one. What is best is that they download new books every week, so there will always be something new to read!


I loved seeing this in the box. I do not know what it is, but in our house the little one does not want to keep her socks on, EVER.  Thus resulting in very dirty feet, we have hard wood floors, animals, and the dirt just magically appears no matter how much you sweep, haha.  These feet wipes will come in handy. These are also great to keep in a diaper bag during the summer trips to the park or local lake, etc. 


This beverage was actually formulated by a doctor to preserve vision. I wish I had this growing up, as my vision started getting bad in elementary school. This Mango Blackcurrant beverage is packed full of natural juices, and only 100 calories.  I am all in with trying to help out with keeping vision healthy!


These little squeeze fruit blends are all the rave with little ones now, and I could not agree more. These are handy, and less mess, which Moms around the world love! Apple Banana is our favorite, and this was gone in no time. Another great healthy addition to this box!


I recently tried this bar in another box I get, and I did not completely like the taste. However, this box had a never flavor, which I am excited to try. KLUTCHMom described this bar as a crumb cake meets cookie dough, and I could not explain the texture better. The best thing is 100 calories and great for a quick pick me up.



This is a new superfood shake to help fuel workouts, stop cravings, lose weight, and increase energy need.  I have not tried this shake out yet, but my goal is to update you with the different recipes Shakeology has provided on their site, and give you an update on how it works.  In week One I should see an improvement in digestion and regularity, and reduce cravings.  I will keep you posted on my progress. The only thing, with only three packets, I am not sure if I can give you a full review. as I only have enough for three meals. I am hopeful I will get to give you a starter opinion though, and tell if I plan on buying more.  I too would love to see positive results that they state people have been having with Shakeology. Fingers crossed.

Overall, I could not be more pleased with the new KLUTCHMom. Like I said I am new to KLUTCHclub all together, and now would like to sign up for all of the other variety of boxes that they offer.  So many quality products, and so much to try in KLUTCHMom box.  I can now see why O Magazine's featured KLUTCHClub in their  "5 Things We Can't Stop Smiling About this Month". KLUTCHMom box definitely made me smile. If you would like to give KLUTCHMom or any of the other options a try you can HERE

Until next time
