Cider. Clothing and Website Review.


Myself and many others have been seeing ads for Cider, they are BLOWING UP social media pages, I was so enthralled by their gorgeous pieces and when I saw these two pieces I HAD to try this site for review.

This is what caught my eye:

This gorgeous set called me, over and over a few days prior, I couldn't stop seeing the ads.

This was my cart:

I got a coupon using Honey, thank god! I love saving anything I can, it was worth almost 11 bucks.

And after shipping this was my total:

I made my order and I was to order both pieces in a Large but I screwed up and I ordered the top in a Large and the skirt in an Extra Small. 

I was panicked as I couldnt alter or cancel my order on their site, so I reached out to them via email to request a fix

This was my email:

They reached back out to me within 8 hours and this was their email:

I was happy to get the email but the order still shows the skirt being the Xtra Small, I just pray for the best when it comes.

I have made this order August 17th 2021. The skirt is on pre-order and will ship August 25th 2021 and the top is also on pre-order and will ship August 23rd 2021. Their shipping time for the method I chose and my country is 10 to 18 business days (with potential Covid delays). The top should arrive between   September 6th and September 18th and the skirt should arrive between September 8th and September 20th.

Today is now August 30th and it's already here, that's amazing! The items came together and arrived early, wow!

This is what the outfit looks like:

They indeed did fix the order mistake and shipped both items in the L.

This fits rather well, the top is a little small with my bra on but it just fits both with it on and off, The skirt is a little big in the waist but sizing down on the skirt and it might not have fit at all but otherwise I LOVE it, the quality is so good and looks really good on. I hated the pink ribbon on the top so I cut it off, it's a weird decoration, I also cut short the pink ribbon on the skirt, it's too long. 

To be honest I wish this was in dress form, not a two piece. I adore the set but it would've been so much cuter as a dress, I'd buy it in dress form for sure.

To wrap it up the outfit I rate a 4.5/5 and the shopping experience was really good and their customer service was amazing, I rate it 5/5 and I would shop again with them for sure.

Update: a few people have said they heard Cider rips off Aliexpress and overcharges for the items, I have not personally seen this done, nor did I find the outfit I bought on Aliexpress but just wanted to mention this in case.

Our Finest. Chicken Pad Thai Review.


Sorry I lost the second photo but you can get an idea of what it's supposed to look like on the box.

I have done a few reviews from this brand (search them on my blog) and today I'm trying out the pad Thai.

This might've been the worst pad Thai I've ever had, it might've been the sauce but I'm not sure, it was a bad taste and bad aftertaste, just bad. It was just so bad and it's edible kinda but I wouldn't buy it again and I rate it 1/5.

Annie's. Shells and White Cheddar Pasta Review.


I've done a few reviews from this brand (search it on my blog) so I thought I'd do another, I think this is the last one for now but I will be looking out for other products of this brand.

This pasta didn't taste too bad but it wasn't as good as my favourite white cheddar pasta from President's Choice. I don't know if I'd consider buying it again but I'd eat it if offered and I rate it 3/5.

PrettyLittleThing. Clothing and Website Review.


I watch Youtube videos for PrettyLittleThing often, I love their style of clothes but they are a bit on the pricier side but I decided to splurge on this dress I've been eyeing and dying for.

This is the dress:

Isn't this dress stunning?! I saw it was on sale still, as I've been checking out this page quite a few times and I decided to snatch it before it's not on sale anymore. Their size chart shows different sizes by country and I followed my size by numbers to figure out I'm a US 8 (UK 10) and I consulted their support on Twitter to confirm weather to pick my US size or UK size as this is a UK company and they stated if you are using their US and CA site to do your US size and if you're using their UK site to pick your UK size and since I was using their CA site I picked the US 8.

This is my cart:

I made this purchase August 18th 2021 and they stated I would get my package on or before August 27th 2021 which is real fast but it's great for the price I paid for shipping, I want to wear this out before the summer comes to an end, at least once.

Today is now August 24th and the dress has arrived.

I'm so back and forth weather or not I like this dress, it doesn't match the photo in print or design and I'm bummed about it, it's still cute but is it me? I got good response from others so maybe it'll grow on me. It fits, I am just not gifted enough in the bust for it to look better, even with my bra on like I was wearing in photo.

I don't know if I would buy from them again, the dress isn't quite like pictured and it was costly. The dress I rate 3.5/5 and the overall shopping experience was a 4/5 with very fast shipping.

E&C's. Heavenly Chunks. Oatmeal White Chip Cookies Review.


These have the texture of playdough or those place and bake cookies from Pillsbury, they are mild in flavou but the flavour is pleasant, coconutty and nice tasting, I would eat them again if offered but I don't think I'd get them again, I rate them 3/5.

Arnott's. Tim Tam. Chocolate Biscuit Review.


This is my first time having a Tim Tam, they are so popular in other countries but they are uncommon where I live, I had though luckily found them at the dollar store...I think lol.

This is a high quality chocolate, nicer than most chocolate I can get, the biscuit I wasn't crazy about but I'm overall not a biscuit person but this was overall rather nice. I don't know if I'd get them again unless I'm sharing but this was worth the review and eat, I'd eat them again if offered and I rate it 4/5.

Annie's. Bunny Pasta with Cheese Review.


I've done a few reviews of this brand (search them on my blog) and today I'm doing bunny pasta with cheese.

This pasta has cute bunnies and carrot shaped pasta (sorry I didnt know about the carrots till later on so I didnt get a photo of them) but when this pasta is hot its better than current KD but if you eat it lukewarm it's just ok. I wouldn't get it again but I think the kids might like it and it was good for review but I rate it 2.5/5.

Zoup. Turkey Bacon Club and Baked Potato Soup Review.


This is my second time going to Zoup, I didn't get a chance to review it the first time but I'm happy to go again.

I ordered the turkey bacon club and the baked potato soup and the combo cost me approx. 10/12 dollars, which I think is a bit steep for the small servings and no drink but is it worth it?

The sandwich was really good, I think it could've used more bacon and tomato but otherwise it was really good and I rate it 4.5/5.

Then the soup I really enjoyed, they told me it was the best seller, I get that. I had no complaints for this soup, none at all and I rate it 4.5/5.

I don't know if it's worth the price, it's nice for review but I could get a bigger soup and fuller sandwich for the same price at Tim Hortons.

Chatime. Japanese Cheesecake and Strawberry Smoothie Review.


I have done one other chatime review (search it on my blog) and this time I'm doing Japanese cheesecake and a strawberry smoothie.

The cheesecake was so light and tasted nice, the top was a little dry but the squishy cheesecake was soft and easy to eat, I would consider it again but nothing to write home about it and probably not worth almost 5 bucks for the one slice and I rate it 3.5/5.

The strawberry smoothie I got with oat milk as I'm lactose intolerant and this large drink of milk would give me more problems than I'd like. This was such a nice smoothie the strawberry flavour is very strong and I like the oat milk, it was a very creamy and dreamy tasting drink, I didn't love it but it was good overall and I rate it 3.5/5.

Italpasta. Alphabet Pasta Review.


This pasta is so small and tastes like nothing, not like regular pasta and you can barely eat this. There is no flavour or bite to them, they are more of a novelty pasta just for a cute soup or homemade version of alphabets in a can but not as good as canned, I wouldn't get it again and I rate it 2.5./5.

Crabby Joe's. Penne Rustico Review.


I might have been to Crabby Joe's once in my life but I don't think I was old enough to remember, I got the chance to go yesterday and I was in the mood for pasta. 

This was a sad pasta, sad and pricey; it was lackluster in flavour and the chicken was probably the only good part to me. I wish this had a cream sauce, as this garlic sauce was thin and too light it was almost like the pasta was dry and sauceless. There's various vegetables in this pasta but they were a weird mash, you couldn't tell what was what except the mushrooms, it was odd. I heard through the grapevine this is store bought pasta and chicken, I can't confirm nor deny that but it doesn't taste that good, so I wouldn't be surprised if this was true. I make better pasta and I'm far from a chef, I've even had better pasta in Sidekicks form, it was not worth almost 20 bucks, ouch. I would not order this again and I rate it 2.5/5.

I might go again fairly soon cause I thought that I should've gotten the chicken tenders, it's good I reviewed the pasta so it wasn't a total loss but next time I'm gunna play it safe, you can't screw up chicken tenders....right?

Tim Hortons. Canned Chicken Noodle Soup Review.


I love Tim Hortons chicken noodle soup so I wanted to try the canned version for review.

This soup had not enough in it, it was so liquidy and needed salt but someone else said it was too salty. Overall this tasted nothing like a Tim Hortons soup, I would eat it if I had no other choices but not buy it again and I rate it 2/5 for all it lacked.

Thai Express. Yellow Curry with Chicken Review.

I have done two other reviews from this restaurant (search them on my blog) and today I'm trying the yellow curry with chicken.

This was not for me, I liked it all but the curry sauce. The chicken and veggies were good and fresh and delicious and it was a good spice level of medium but it's not for me, it was good to try for review but I would not get it again and I rate it 2.5/5.

Dairy Queen. Blue Raspberry Misty Freeze Review.


I have done some reviews from this restaurant (search it on my blog) and today I'm trying the blue raspberry misty freeze. I was eyeing this drink it looks pretty but is it good? 

No, this tasted like powdered fun dip and ice cream, gritty texture and all, this wasn't the worst but I wouldn't get it again and I rate it 2.5/5.

Jacks Links. Beef Steak Strip Review.


I have done one other review from this brand (search it on my blog), I'm not sure why I haven't done more, I've been eating this brand for many years, maybe that's why I haven't, they haven't been new products to me but this beef steak strip is new to me.

This stick of beef is simple but hearty and delicious, I want 10000 more. I don't recall how much they cost me but it likely was a bit pricey which this brand usually is, I can't wait to pick up more as I have a few times already since this review, I rate it 4.5/5.

Sweet Shoppe. Gummy Pizza Review.


I've been trying out quite a few pizza's lately, here's one to spice it up haha. I've done quite a few reviews for this brand (search it on my blog) and I thought I'd try this out, see how it goes.

This was awful, AWFU, it tasted like flowers and perfume, worst pizza I've ever had haha and a bad gummy for sure, I wouldn't get it again and I rate it 0/5.
