My Cravebox Arrived

Perugina Chocolate Bar estimate value $2.16

7oz bottle retails for $54.00 and last 6-8 weeks

Baci Chocolate Truffle

OPI Nic's Sticks retail from $4.99-$8.99

BiC  for Her retractable ball pens
each pack retails for $3.99


Everything come wrapped in pink tissue paper

Package gets delivered to your mailbox
Finally my CRAVEBOX arrived!!! Just to clear the air this is nothing compared to Birchbox. In my honest opinion, I believe CRAVEBOX is so much better. The reason I say so is because this box has alittle bit of everything for your everyday life. It came with a full size candy bar, with a name that I can not pronounce. I certainly plan on saving it for a few more week for when that certain craving for chocolate begins. In the mean time I plan on sharing the chocolate truffle with my husband once we get a few minutes alone, after all he did pay for this box and the future ones to come.  There was also a nail polish to satisfy that nail polish addict in me. A body balm perfect for this time of weather was also included. I can never have enough lotion,,,,,no one likes ashy legs or elbows.  Now there is no reason why I should be scavenging through my kitchen junk drawer looking for a pen. CRAVEBOX just provided me with 2/2 pack pens. One pack is black ball point ink and the other pack contain a pink and purple gel ink. Cravebox is a monthly subscription that is only $10.00 per month. If you are tired of getting samples for $10.00 give Cravebox a chance. I am glad I did!!

I love how it gives my lips a nice shine. The gloss is not too thick nor sticky. It also has a really nice smell to it. It reminds me of vanilla and caramel. It really is nice. My husband said it makes me look even more sexy! Gotta love that!!!
I just looked up the price on NYC website and it retails for $2.49. Talk about budget friendly!!It's totally worth the money!

My Favorite Holiday Snack

Chex Mix Muddie Buddies

Great to give as a treat to friends, neighbors,and teachers!
Apparently, these tasty treats have several names that you can call them. The lady at the register asked me if I was going to be making "Trash". I don't like that name at all:( The name does it no justice to way these taste. I have heard some people call it "Puppy Chow" or as my son say it "Puppy Food". I choose to call it "Muddie Buddies".
This is the most easiest snack to make and the most easiest snack to eat all by your self! It it so YUMMY! I have to make several batches for us, one for my brother and one for my parents house.
The ingredients are few:
9 cups Chex cereal (any flavor)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1. Into large bowl, measure cereal and set aside
2. In 1-qt microwaveable bowl, microwave chocolate chips,peanut butter and butter uncovered on High 1 minute. Stir. Microwave an additional 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla.
3. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated.
4. Pour into a 2-gallon resealable food storage bag
5. Add powdered sugar.Seal bag and shake until well coated.
6. Spread on waxed paper to cool.
7. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

I received a tweet a while ago about a new product that is going to be launching. The name of it was CraveBox. Have you heard of it? Well it is a monthly "subscription" that you get in the mail.
Cravebox gives you the opportunity to try the best products without paying full price.
  • Unwrap four to five hand-selected products each monthcravebox box
  • Discover the most crave-worthy products including beauty, food, home goods and others
  • Delivered to your door for one superbly low price of $10/month - includes free shipping!

Sounds pretty exciting to me! I am currently a subscriber to BirchBox. Honestly, I have only gotten one box that I actually liked.  Maybe 2 products that I would actually considering purchasing. One was the Anastasia Clear Brow mascara and the other was the Ahava foot cream.  I am hoping to receive something exciting in Decembers BirchBox, if not, then this will be my last month with BirchBox. The thing that interested me in CraveBox, was that the description of the box listed home goods and not just beauty goods. I really can not wait for this box to arrive.
I did place my order with CraveBox this morning. As soon as I receive my package, I will let you know what I received. If you are interested, here it there website:
Thanks for stopping by,
