May Graze Box

This is my first time trying Graze. I heard a lot of good things about them. It's a snack box subscription. For $6 a box, you get 4 random healthy snacks from their collection of about 90 items. You can view their entire collection and rate the items to narrow the margin of choices for your box.

"Our boxes are filled with delicious and nutritious food. From nuts, seeds, dried fruits, tasty crackers, dips to some well-deserved treats, every Graze snack has a healthy benefit."

My box included:

sweet mustard ranch
mustard breadsticks, sour cream and onion cashews and poppyseed pretzels

These were ok, not bad. I only disappointed that the cashews tasted like regular cashews. I could hardly taste the seasoning but they were still good.

key lime pie
lime infused raisins, sponge pieces, mini meringues and green raisins

I really liked this one even though I'm not a fan of raisins. This has maybe converted me. It's so good.

summer berry flapjack
rustic rolled oat flapjack with berry-infused cranberries

I let my dad try this one and he liked it

jalapeno fiesta
jalapeno peanuts, roasted sunflower seeds, salsa almonds and roasted pumpkin seeds

This was good too. Not super spicy but a lil kick. The almonds were very flavorful. They were the standout in this mix.

Overall I loved my box. This is definitely a keeper. These really came in handy before my workout. I can't wait to see what comes in the next box.

Mary Kay Influenster VoxBox #MKGlam

Playing with some of my Mary Kay makeup from Influenster VoxBox. The creamy eyeshadow is called Apricot Twist. On my skin it looks golden but I couldnt get it to show up in the pic. I also lightly dabbed a little bit under my eye as a highlighter. As I was lining my lid with the gel eyeliner (first time using gel eyeliner ever) the gold and black made me think of the Egyptians. So I tried an Egyptian inspired wing liner. The lipgloss is called Mango Tango and its a red orange. I like the feel and smell of it but I'm not too keen on the color. Threw in my nails cause they're cute and sparkly

I Have Super Powers

The strangest thing just happened. My sinuses were aching a lil and the pain was only around one eye. I put the palm of my hand to my eye for a few seconds, trying to relax and breathe slowly. When I took my hand away, my palm was very warm, which it was not before, and my face no longer hurt. I'm sitting here looking at my hand and feeling its warmth and feeling nothing on my face. So weird...
