Muji. White Chocolate Covered Freeze Dried Strawberries Review.

I bought these on Ebay, they look like a snack right out of an anime. These are adorable! I'm not usually crazy for white chocolate but I didn't want to pass up the chance to try these. The first downside though, is the price. This bag of 6 cost 10 dollars. Ouch. I understand why but still....ouch.

I cut one in half to show the inside, the strawberry looks great. These are freeze dried strawberries, like you would get in my favourite Special K cereal.

I of course wasn't crazy about the white chocolate, it was just okay. I would've preferred this to be milk chocolate, that would've been amazing. The strawberry always does weird things to my teeth but the flavour was great. I wouldn't buy them again as the cost was high and the white chocolate was meh. I rate it 3/5.

Quote Of The Day #70.

"Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude."

Crave. Turkey with Italian Sausage Stuffing Review.

I've seen ads for Crave a few times and had seen them in the stores. This is a new brand of frozen dinners. I saw this one and two others, I can only recall the mac and cheese. I decided to try this one out as I love other turkey and stuffing dinners from other brands.

This one though was a white sauce and the stuffing had Italian stuffing which was new but exciting to me. I wasn't crazy about the dish, it was different. It tasted alright but something about it, it wasn't crazy about maybe the sauce. I don't recall what kind of sauce this was but it was different to traditional turkey gravy usually used in these meals. I don't know if I would buy it again but it was worth the review. 

I also found it a bit over priced for the small serving, I find that with most brands though, except Hungry Man or the Grande Michelina's. I rate this 3/5.

Quote Of The Day #69.

"The difference between genius and stupidity is; genius has its limits."
– Albert Einstein 

Halo Top. Pancakes and Waffles Frozen Dessert Review.

I have seen ads for Halo Top and I was looking forward to trying some out, though it's a bit pricey for such a small carton. I wanted cookies and cream but when I saw pancakes and waffles I wanted to try that one out, not thinking too much about it. I literally have a habit of not taking the time to make choices, when I should.

I didn't realize how maple this flavour would be, it makes sense for pancakes and waffles but I was hoping for more of a vanilla flavour than a maple flavour. I am never TOO keen on maple unless it's on my actual pancakes and waffles. I wasn't crazy about this flavour, I wasn't crazy at all. I would not get it again, I rate it 2/5. (Also I'm not sure if that's the texture it's supposed to be or if my freezer is too cold for it and it's now freezer burnt.)

Noble Jerky. Original Vegan Jerky Review.

So I got three flavours of this vegan jerky to try for review. I got the Original, Sweet BBQ and Chipotle.

This first flavour is Original. It's soy protein that's been seasoned and marinated and I was nervous but excited to try it. I'm that much a glutton I eat whatever, vegan or non I will try it out.

So this is one of the most if not the most flavourful jerky I have ever eaten. It literally tasted like a well seasoned beef burger. The flavour stuck with me long after eating and it was great. The more I ate though the more I found the flavour a bit much, like not overpowering but it was just a whole lot lol. I don't find this jerky something I could eat a lot of all at once but I would definitely buy it again. I rate it 4.5/5.

Filled Gummy Brains Candy Review.

I picked these up at the dollar store, I'm always eager to try out new snacks. I thought the idea of gummy brains outside of Halloween was cool. Sadly these tasted AWFUL. I hated the taste and smell. I wouldn't get them again. To me it was a chemical like taste mixed with medicine. Yuck. I rate them 0/5.

4 Fun Chocolate Bar Review.

I had seen these 4 fun bars in the dollar store but not once picked one up. I got 3 for 1.50 I think. They are chocolate covered wafers, like a kit kat kinda.

The chocolate is too firm, it was hard to eat and some even got stuck in my back teeth. The flavour of the chocolate was okay, not great and a bit rich for me. I did like the wafers, they were good. I doubt I would get it again and I rate it 2.5/5.

Bowfull. Beef Non Fried Noodles Review.

I have tried the bowful chicken non fried noodles, now I'm trying the beef.

The broth taste like beef gravy and the noodle are just okay but seem to be different than the chicken ones. I think the beef is better than the chicken texture and flavour wise. I don't think I would get either of them again though. I rate it 2.5/5.

Krack O Pop. Oven Baked Sour Cream & Onion Rings Review.

I had been craving onion rings and I saw these in the dollar store. I had never tried this brand nor oven baked onion rings, so I thought I would.

I like the flavour, it's as you would imagine if you've had onion rings but the texture of it baked is odd, it kinda throws off the whole snack. I will be eating them but wouldn't get them again. I rate them 2.5/5.

Babesentials. Clothing and Website Review.

This is my website and product review for the website Babesentials. I was contacted by them to do a collab, where I could pick out a free item and just pay shipping. 

They commented on one of my Instagram photos, to message them about the collab. I was curious to know more info so I messaged them:

They returned my email with more info: 

I used their link to the list of free items for review and I picked this Baby Girl top:

I contacted them with my measurements to help me pick a size and I went ahead and ordered the Medium.

This was the ordering process:

I checked out their FAQ's to see about shipping times and this is what I found:

I made my purchase on December 27th 2018. I should receive my item between January 14th and January 24th.

My package arrived January 21st 2018. 

This is what the item looked like:

Off the bat I noticed it doesn't look much like the photo, the shape and material are different but it's still a cute top, the print is a good quality.

I put the top on and this is what it looks like on:

So I ordered it in a medium, which was a mistake lol. It fits.....fine with a bra on but without the bra it doesn't fit me much at all. The material is kite-like and very thin, rather transparent too. I don't hate the material, it's nice for the summer but it's not what I thought seeing the photo. 

Overall I don't think this top is worth 30 dollars, I may not have paid for it (as I only covered shipping during this collab) but I still think for someone purchasing it out of pocket it's expensive for a top, especially of this quality that's just okay, when it doesn't match the photo really. I rate the top 3.5/5. I may be giving it to my sister who may fit it better, if it doesn't fit her I'll be surely keeping it for myself.

I'm glad I did the collab, it had been a fun experience. Thank you to Babesentials for contacting me with this opportunity.

UPDATE: Someone has brought to my attention that this website Babesentials is a dropshipping website. So when you purchase on this website these items have actually come from Wish or Aliexpress and this seller is selling them at sometimes even triple the actual cost. So this top I had got for 15 bucks is a lot cheaper on aliexpress. You can search Babygirl Tube Top to find it. 

So to update my review of this website, I would not recommend shopping with them and thank you again to the person who brought this to my attention.

Turbana. Sweet Plantain Chips Review.

So I had salty plantain chips a few months ago, they were good. I thought I would try sweet ones. They are an odd flavour but not too bad. I don't think I would get them again, they are tiresome to force myself to finish haha, you know we can't waste. I rate them 2.5/5.
