I have tried two cookies from this brand (search it on my blog) and this final time it's a cinnamon sugar cookie.
Honestly this cookie was amazing the first time like a 5/5 but became a 3.5/5 the more I bought. It's just ok overall but flavour and texture are pretty nice.

I recently reviewed another cookie of this brand (search it on my blog) and this one is chocolate chunk.
I didn't like anything about this cookie, the cookie or the chocolate chips. The taste to me was off and I wouldn't get it again, I rate it 2.5/5.

I did not like this cookie and I normally like oatmeal raisin. The raisins were the best part though but not great overall. I wouldn't get this one again and I rate it 2/5.

This is my Cobbs Bread review, I ordered a cinnamon bun, a cinnamon scone and a spinach and mushroom pizza.
The cinnamon bun icing was odd and I hated it, I also didn't like the bun a whole lot but it was fine but I wouldn't get it again and I rate it 1.5/5.
Honestly a delicious cinnamon scone, the flavour was so nice and it wasn't too dry. I'm not a scone person I often find them a little too dry but this was worth it I think, I'd get a few more and I rate it 4.5/5.
Lastly this spinach and mushroom pizza, the crust was pretty good and so were the toppings but personally I found it had too much spinach. I'd try out the other pizzas but probably not get this one again but I rate it 3.5/5.

The poutine was pretty good but nothing beats cheese curds though this cheese was fine, I rate it 3.5/5. The chicken was good and crunchy and a great amount of pieces, I rate it 4/5 and I had two onion rings which were pretty good too for flavour and breading and I rate them 3.5/5.

It's taken me years to finally get this Popeye's chicken sandwich, I didn't like the Popeye's I used to live near and when I moved I never went, forgetting I lived not far from one. Today was the day I finally went to try it out, I wanted to see the hype of that earlier years. This sandwich cost me $6.77 with tax, which I guess is fair for a chicken sandwich.
It was really good, not like the hype but it was still really good. I thought the breading on the chicken was too crispy compared to the soft bun, soft chicken and lightly crunchy pickles. The texture change threw me off but flavour wise I really liked it. I thought there was a lot of mayo but it was perfect for the dry breading and I thought it needed more pickles. I like this more than any other chicken sandwich except the Burger King original sandwich but I cannot eat that one anymore so this will be my go to if I'm feeling a chicken sandwich, which isn't often I'm not usually a chicken sandwich person. I would get another one if I ever go again and I rate it 4/5.

November 17th 2020, I was contacted on Instagram from a company called La Venne, a jewelry brand. They were looking to collab and I have so far done three successful collabs in my time (the fourth collab was a fail lol search my blog for babesentials) but I know doing these are a gamble, I am going to take the risk for a review and in case it does works out. Some reviews said they were scammed, some said they received their items, some said late and some said not at all.
This page followed me and liked over 10 to 20 of my Instagram posts then sent me a DM.
This is the series of messages they sent me:
*Note* I was told I'd have to pay shipping which was 24 USD, which I agreed to doing. converting to my currency of CAD it came out to almost 35, I'd never pay that much for shipping for anything but I had to do this review.
I went to their site and picked out 3 pieces from their ambassador collection:
I made my order and put in my coupon code, it did in fact take my total right off, making the items free, here is my breakdown:
Note: I was told it would take 2-4 weeks to receive my package. I was also sent a text message and email with confirmation of my order, that they would alert me when my package has been shipped.
Here I posted my Instagram story:
They then featured my story onto their Brand Manager account and Main account:
November 18th 2020 they sent me a text and email that give me tracking number and to say they have shipped my package:
It should arrive between December 8th and December 28th but their could be Covid delays.
After them shipping my package I got this message:
I followed their request and put my code in my bio. If you're reading this and are interested in my code you can use it on their site (LVNANIKKI60), thank you!:
Note: I tested out my code and they state a - before 60 but I just took it out and the code then works fine, if it doesn't work for you take the - out.
Most companies I work with do not require me to add it to my bio, they usually tell me to make an actual post and add my code info there, I would've preferred to do a post than to use my bio for it.
December 23rd the three pieces came, along with a $20 gift card and an ambassador business card. Here is what I got:
I tried on each of the pieces and I will break down my thoughts for each one:
I usually avoid gold I was always under the impression I didn't look good in gold, BOY WAS I WRONG! I put this piece on and I fell in love, I was so very happy. I haven't taken it off since putting it on, the quality is nice, shiny and lightweight on my neck. I rate it 5/5.
I struggled to get into this bracelet as my fingers are too big and my nails are too thin to properly open the clasp BUT I found out I could just slip it on, as my wrist is actually too small to properly wear this piece. This is gorgeous and dainty though and looks nice on my skin and again is really nice in quality, I rate it 4/5.
This last piece is dainty like the first but I got this piece in silver which also looks nice on my skin, it's really pretty and the style caught my eye on their site. This one feels a little cheaper in quality but of a good quality nonetheless, I really like this piece too and I rate it 4/5.
I posted these three photos to my IG profile and I shared it with the company, I get a chance to be published to either of their IG pages and I hope I get chosen but if I don't I still am so thrilled I got a chance to try out this company and I can put the gift card to use and buy something else.
My final thoughts: this has been a good experience overall but I think their products are a bit expensive and their shipping is insane for my country, unless you get discounts or use my code. I rate La Venne 4/5, I can't say less than that cause personally I'm just stingy with my money but I did put the gift card to use and grab a best friend a nice gift. They have really cute pieces and I'm happy with the steal of a deal they gave me with free products but from someone buying out of pocket it might not be worth it, depending on how much you want these items or where you're buying from and you could save on shipping. To be honest I'm not being paid to say anything and they dont even know I'm doing this review but I wouldn't pay 30-50 dollars on a single piece of jewelry but maybe because I rarely wear any and again I'm stingy. If any of them are worth even close to the price, it's the first piece, it makes me feel rich when I'm wearing it.
Note: the gold and marble piece is no longer on the ambassador page, its still on their site though if you search up the product name.

I did a review recently for this brand, I did spring rolls (search on my blog) and this time I'm trying to samosas.
These were kinda spicy but the flavour was good and I'd eat them again if offered but I wouldn't buy them again and I rate them 3.5/5.
