BIRCHBOX April 2015 | Shanda G



WHISH SHAVE CREAM- Unlike its distant peers, this formula is designed not to foam up: instead, the rich lotion is chock full of organic and natural botanicals that soften skin. A moisturizing base of omega-rich squalene, organic shea butter, jojoba oil, and coconut oil protects against the redness and irritation associated with shaving, while organic green tea extracts infuse skin with antioxidants.| Full size, $20.00
After Trying: I loved this shaving cream. It smells nice and it goes on nice and thick. It created a nice clean shave for my under arms. Which is hard to do normally.



 CYNTHIA ROWLEY BRIGHTING ILLUMINATOR- Goes on smooth, dries to a pearlescent finish, and has just the right amount of shimmer. This velvety highlighter works for all skin tones, delivering a subtle sheen that lights up your features. | Full size, $28.00

After Trying: I wanted to love this. But i found it to be a little bit silvery on me. I tried to blend it out but i could still notice the silvery tone on my skin.

TEMPLE SPA PEACE BE STILL CALMING FACE AND BODY BALM- This luxurious cream goes to work from the outside in. It’s a blend of aromatherapy and skincare, with a soothing, sophisticated fragrance from essential oils and an infusion of botanicals to nourish skin. Vitamin B5 softens and hydrates, while lemon, coriander, and nutmeg extracts fend off damaging free radicals, calm inflammation, and stimulate skin. This lush moisturizer absorbs quickly for a silky, never-greasy feel.| Full size, $ 29.00
After Trying: This balm has a great smell. It was a nice light moisturizer. Although I thought it was a bit thin to be called a balm.
    POP BEAUTY POP PORTFOLIO EYESHADOW PALETTE  | Full size, $26.00
After Trying: I am so glad that I received these colors. They are perfect for my everyday look. The color pay off is lovely. Although the palette that this is from has a nice range of colors to choose from. Which I would recommend this brand to any one needing an inexpensive shadow palette.
WEI MANUKA BEE VENOM MASK- While it may sounds scary, the purified venom in this mask is gentle and nourishing, and combines with healing herbs to help to fight wrinkles, correct imperfections, and firm skin. | Full size, $60.00
After Trying: My skin felt so smooth after using this. I did notice a bit of tingling after it was on for a minute but nothing extreme though. Great product if you are not allergic to bee products.

BEANFIELDS Bean and Rice Chips | Shanda G.

Hey everyone! I was contacted a while ago by Beanfield to try some of their chips and I wanted to share with you my thoughts. 

 **BEAN FIELDS -Bean and Rice chips in Nacho are vegan and corn free. With 4 grams of protein and fiber.
After Trying: I like these chips better than  other Bean chips I've tried. It has a nice Nacho flavor without the cheese. Which is really saying something! Even my children loved these and let me tell you they are picky. I will be looking for these in my local grocer.



PICO DE GALLO FLAVOR
After Trying: This was an interesting flavor. I liked it for the mild spiciness it had. But it wasn't enough to convince us to purchase it.

RANCH Flavor
After Trying: This reminded me of my dorito loving days but I have to say this is far better. The flavor and texture is spot on. I can't believe these are vegan! My eldest had to beat off his friends at school. I mean no kidding. He actually told me his friends would trade their whole lunch for a bag of these!
Unsalted Flavor
After Trying: This is when you can taste the beans. Not my favorite but really good with humus.
SALT N' PEPPER Flavor
After Trying: This flavor had a very distinct bean taste also. I mean they are made of beans right? I found this one to be really good to use for dipping also. I tried salsa and guacamole. Delish!
SEA SALT Flavor
After Trying: This one wasn't a favorite either but with some dips it was good.
BARBECUE Flavor
After Trying: This had a bang on flavor that I could not believe. Who knew beans could taste so good? WE just ate these straight out of the bag. Dips be gone!




I have to say my family and I enjoyed tasting these cool chips. I hoped you enjoyed our thoughts. If you have any questions or comments don't hesitate to leave them below.
Thank you for reading everyone! Sending virtual hugs to you all! See you in my next post.

BIRDBOX by Josh Malerman | A Review | Shanda G.

AUTHOR - Josh Malerman
  TYPE- A novel           
PAGES- 272 Hardcover Edition
PUBLISHED- May 13, 2014 By Ecco
GENERE- Horror, Adult Fiction, Thriller
SOURCE- Borrowed from Library














Premise Excert

Most People ignored the outrageous reports on the news. but they became to frequent, they became to real. And soon they began happening down the street. Then the internet died. The television and radio went silent. The phones stopped ringing. And we couldn't look out side any more.



5/5 STARS




My Thoughts

The cover of the book is what really sold me on giving  it a try. I am so glad that I did. Malorie is the main character in this novel. It starts off with you getting introduced to her and her situation. I quickly become invested in this character. But I still feel as though some details about her are missing to relate to her better. I really wanted to know her reasoning for calling the children Boy and Girl instead of by their names. Other than that I really loved the creepy nature of the book. I mean when the most used sense of the human race is now your worst sense. How can you not be intrigued?  This book makes you ask yourself, how would you respond if you couldn't open you eyes? I think Mr. Malarian did a great job of taking us into this world of survival. i think this would make a great movie!





Thanks for reading my post.  Tell me what books are you reading? Have you read this book? What do you think about it? Leave your comments below!
Don't forget to share this post all over the internet!

**SUN WARRIOR - Warrior Blend- Raw Vegan Protein in vanilla


After Trying:  I found this blended really well with my banana peanut butter smoothie. It was smooth with a light vanilla flavor. It wasn't chalky either. This is definitely a protein powder worth looking into for vegans.

ORGANIC NUTTZO 2GO -Made with Peanuts, cashews, brazil nuts, hazelnuts, sunflower seeds, almonds, and flax seeds. Only 1 gram of sugar and 90 calories.

After Trying: I liked the flavor of this. It was nice and smooth and just middy sweet. I did find it a bit oily which i think was from the sunflower seeds. Nothing a good cracker couldn't handle.
BONELLI- Simply Sesame creamy spread in Vanilla with Almond bits. No preservatives, additives,trans fat, cholesterol and low in sodium.

After Trying: This spread was very creamy. It had a nice vanilla flavor with out being overly sweet. I don't think it was thick enough for a cake frosting though. It would do as more of a glaze. I think this would be great for vegan doughnuts!
 **ZIGGY MARLEY'S HEMP RULES- Shelled Hemp Seeds are Non GMO and organic.

After Trying: This had a nice nutty flavor similar to sunflower seeds that I enjoyed. It tasted good on my salad. Yummy!


 **BEAN FIELDS -Bean and Rice chips in Nacho are vegan and corn free. With 4 grams of protein and fiber.

After Trying: I like these chips better than  other Bean chips I've tried. It has a nice Nacho flavor with out the cheese. This chip held up to dipping.


 **WAI LANA - Cassava chips sea salt flavor air popped chips with 100 calories.

After Trying: This chip was my favorite out of all the chips I've had. It had a fantastic savory Flavor. It reminded me of pork rinds. If that gives you any idea of the flavor. Which is pretty awesome for a root vegetable.


 **180 - Cranberry pomegranate clusters
After Trying:  This had a nice fruity crunch. I loved this as a quick afternoon snack.


 **SENECA- Crispy apple chips original flavor

After trying: I found this to be too sweet. If they would leave out the added sugar this would be perfect.


 **EMMY'S -Chocolate chip macaroons
After Trying: OH MY GOSH I loved this cookie. It was like a little peace of heaven in my mouth.  The chocolate was sweet the coconut was moist it was just lovely. I will be looking to add this to my snack time more often.


**MUNKIJO -100% Organic Coconut Water

After Trying: This was a very refreshing coconut water. It didn't have the sour taste like some coconut waters I've had. It is the closest I've had to a fresh opened coconut.











Thank you for reading everyone! Sending virtual hugs to you all! See you in my next post.
