What’s New; Let’s Go Down to the Thicket

What’s New; Let’s Go Down to the Thicket

Hey guys! This last weekend didn’t go quite as I had planned, but it’s okay, because I still got some content for you! I had planned to attend an opening a couple hours away, but due to the continuing joblessness, we opted to stay close to home. I gathered a little content over the weekend, first up is the Lizard Thicket, where they graciously hosted me and allowed me to try on some of the newest ensembles in their inventory.

Hometown Cravings; Sweet Redemption with Midtown Coffeehouse

Hey there, guys! I hope everyone is doing great this Thursday! I visited an old favorite today and tried something new! I almost got a different drink, with Cayenne but I chickened out last minute and changed it to the glorious drink of redemption you see before you up above! This particular drink is the Redeemed Latte from Midtown Coffeehouse! It’s breve Half and half, vanilla and a double shot of espresso.

Unboxing; Possibly the Most Useless Allure Box May 2019

Unboxing; Possibly the Most Useless Allure Box May 2019

Hey guys! First off, Happy Veterans day and thanks to all of you who may be Veterans, for your service! Formalities aside, can I get right to the complaining? I got what is very possibly my last Allure box for a while and they ended it on such a regrettable note. Now, I want to say that this is bad for me personally and may not be all around a bad box.

Sponsored; The Joys of Planning the Bulletproof Way

      Hey guys, this is our first sponsored post and is strategically going up on the same day as our regularly scheduled content. This is a topic that I feel… mixed about. As you can see, I’m promoting a planner, and planning is not my strong suit. It never has been, even in elementary school when they had those weird mandatory agendas that I still attempt to recreate every semester to keep myself in line. Is it effective? Nope. Could it be? With this Bulletproof journal it looks like it could be.

    The designer of the Bulletproof Journal, Yvonne Heimann, aims to make planning, not only a tool of efficiency but efficient in itself. This journal is meant to reduce your stress and anxiety, and increase your sense of zen along with creating good habits and a sense of community. This is a business planner for those entrepreneurs out there, so you may want to forego this entire spiel and check out their IndieGoGo which launches on June 26, go ahead and click HERE if you’re already sold!

     The Bulletproof journal essentially came with Miss Yvonne nearly losing everything, but thanks to her hard work and dedication you don’t have to hit that point. Her hard work is most definitely your gain if you struggle with:

  •  Staying on top of your most important projects, goals, and dreams
  •  Tracking (and being proud of) your personal accomplishments
  •  Remembering what you are grateful for and what’s meaningful to you

It also brings to the table this amazing list of pros in its favor, and legit, I’m already planning to hop on this when it launches. Because, boy I could use catch-all journal like this in my day to day life. So you don’t have to be a business owner to get use out of this glorious gift to workers everywhere. The pros are below!

  • Lays completely flat!
  • Vision Board
  • Discovery Pages
  • Year and Month at a Glance
  • Daily Layout
  • Annual Planner
  • Yearly Goals
  • Content Planner
  • Quarterly Goal Setting
  • Financial Goal Setting + Tracking
  • Weekly Planning
  • Habit Planning + Tracking

  Like I said, the Bulletproof Journal launches on June 26th so if you want to jump on it HERE, be sure to write down that date in your current planner so it knows it’s on thin ice! I would also like to include this helpful list of links for you guys to check out in the meantime!

 

 

 

Unboxing; Ipsy May 2019

Unboxing; Ipsy May 2019

Hey guys! I’m in the midst of doing youtube filming, but I still wanted to get this Ipsy post up for you guys. I’m not sure if I’m going to be able to get the June bag, so this may be the last one for a while so I definitely wanted to enjoy it. This particular month was at least better than last month’s. Which is a relief, as I really don’t want to leave Ipsy on a sour note!

If so, have I got the thing for you! We made a trip to Tyrone, Georgia on a whim and found Circa Coffee , an adorable little place by any standards and just the kind of aesthetic I absolutely die for. I’ll stick a gallery down below so you can enjoy it with me!

Unboxing! April 2019 Ipsy

Unboxing! April 2019 Ipsy

Hey there guys! I hope you guys are having a fantastic Thursday afternoon! Today is a lazy day for me, because since I lost my job I have been running like I’m on fire. I know this post comes way late, since we have the May ipsy now, but better late than never! This particular shipment wasn’t too impressive, sadly. In any event, let’s get to it!

Drinks Around the World (Market)

Drinks Around the World (Market)

     We ended up with 7  drinks, and 3 snacks there were some definite hits and misses, as there always are when you’re trying a bulk of things. So I don’t have to avoid spoilers anymore let’s get to it! Oh, if you’re curious about any drinks below, you can find them on Rocket Fizz’s site linked above! 

Hometown cravings: The Three Big Yums

Hey guys! I know I missed a couple posts- honestly, I’m not in a good headspace. I’m hoping things get better soon, but no improvement yet. I don’t want to bore you guys with my mental health woes, partially because I don’t want to wallow in my self-pity here, but also because I want to show you the three Frappes that are now at Starbucks. One of which, is returning, the other two are new if I’m not mistaken.

The first one they have is the Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino, it is delectable. Starbucks, please keep this! The first thing to hit is the scent of caramel and toffee on top of the marshmallow whipped cream. I did notice that first sip is almost aggressively sweet and rich, which is fine. It’s very caramel, so not for those of you who are more casual partakers of caramel.

This was the first one I tried, and I was hooked. I’m not going to let it replace my Macchiato due to caloric content, but it’s definitely up there with my favorite frappes. Some sips have. It does little bit of a bitter tinge, maybe it’s more nutty? It adds a great contrast to the sweetness.

I wasn’t sure which one to do next, but I ended up going with the Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino. The first sip was following the caramel one with aggression. It’s a more rich, almost dark chocolate flavor. Like a frozen hot chocolate. I’d recommend this one if you’re a fan of really chocolatey flavors. How many ways can I find to say that I really enjoyed this one too? How many things can you say about a drink that amounts to a mocha with cookies in it? Guys, if you want chocolate, drink this. It will obliterate your craving.

The last one is the one that is making a temporary return. The Starbucks S’mores Frappuccino. This came to me topped sky-high with marshmallow whipped cream covered in graham crackers. This is the first time I’m able to taste the whipped cream unfettered by other flavors, and oh my god. It tastes so nostalgic to me for some reason. It reminds me of Halloween.Or, is it the little Santas you get that are marshmallows covered in chocolate? Maybe it tastes like Easter? My point is, it’s really, really good.

When I finally got around to sipping the actual drink I found it to be likewise pretty good. By this time the sugar high is starting to hit me, because I have all three of these sitting in front of me, so I’ll try to focus. It tastes primarily like the Marshmallow whipped cream, but also vaguely like honey. It’s exceptionally rich, and I think I prefer it to the chocolate one.

Which is Your Favorite?

Hometown Cravings: This Lemonade is Kicking at Midtown Coffee!

Hometown Cravings: This Lemonade is Kicking at Midtown Coffee!

      Hey guys! Guess what season it is officially? Summer. My least favorite season of all time. I only assume that this is officially Summer because it’s hot as all get out and wouldn’t you know my AC is on the fritz. With all of this hot hot heat, I needed something to help me cool down. And maybe coffee is that thing!
