Good morning my loves! Today I will be doing a review on a new service called Graze. If any of you have tried Birchbox or FabFitFun or any of those beauty samplers then you will be familiar with this type of thing. It’s basically a sampling box of different yummy and healthy snacks. The packaging that Graze comes in is SUPER cute. It’s very simple but adorable at the same time. When you open the box, you see the nutrition info with a little personal note about the snacks that are being sent to you. Then you get to the good stuff… THE FOOD! You can either do a trial run for free (with sign up) where you receive four snacks in your box, or you can sign up for the recurring boxes (you choose how often you would like them delivered) which has eight snacks inside. When you create your account, you go through a series of snacks and examples and pick and choose the kinds of things that you like so that Graze can send you foods that they think you will like based on your food preferences and lifestyle. I tried to go for healthier options with lower calories and carbs since I try to live a relatively healthy lifestyle. But they have all kinds of different things to suit any kind of diet and nutrition. I also really liked that the snacks come with the nutrition facts so that I know what I’m eating and can factor them into my diet. I have tried almost all of the snacks so far and let me tell you, they are so good! I put the strawberries and cream crumble over my greek yogurt and it was the perfect breakfast combo. So, overall I can say that if you are looking for some nutritional convenience and want to try some new things, give this a try!
If you try Graze, let me know what you think and what your favorite snacks are!
AND A FEW MORE…
Happy Monday loves! I thought I would start off this week with a post comprised of a compilation of a lot of the jobs that I have been doing recently. It was prom, graduation, and wedding season, so these ladies kept me pretty busy. As most of you already know, I do have a full time corporate job but have never lost my passion for beauty and fashion (which is why I have this blog as my creative outlet). But with that said, I love being able to style hair and be a make up artist on the side. I love being able to make a girl beam from the inside because of how beautiful she looks on the outside. She feels more confident and excited for her special day. Now, I am a firm believer that no one needs makeup or their hair done up to be beautiful, but there’s just something about sitting in a chair and being pampered that can give you that extra boost of confidence. Which is in fact the reason why I do what I do. I love making a girl feel more confident in herself and having a smile from ear to ear in the photos she posts from her day. As, you can see from a lot of these pictures, I am a makeup artist who does not believe in heavy, cake-faced make up. I think that you should still look like yourself, but I enhance your natural, beautiful and unique features. You should look like yourself, not a masked version of yourself. So, if any of you have a special occasion coming up or just need your hair and makeup done for a certain occasion, (and are in my area), shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org — I would love to hear from you guys and also love to hear your feedback about what you would like to see next. Happy Tuesday!
