333 & Co. Jewelry. Product and Website Review.


I've been a supporter of Amber Scholl for years, she's the founder of 333 & Co. This is a beautiful jewelry brand that I've been eyeing for a while now. 

I settled on this ring:

On the website there are various photo and video footages of the ring, I thought this was stunning! I was humming and hawing for months about buying a ring and when this dropped, I had to snatch it! Heads up I changed my currency to CAD on the website and this product page and cart will be in CAD, you can change it to a few currencies so you can get an idea of what it will cost for you.

Here is my cart: 

I made my purchase today August 12th 2022 and it has an estimated delivery of 7 to 21 business days.

Today is now August 25th and I have received the ring, this is what came in the package:

The ring is pretty but I can admit it's not as sparkly as she's shown in videos, it looks and feels cheaper than what I've seen. I don't know if it's 60 dollars worth though. I'm honest when I say I'm not in love with it like I was prior to purchasing. It's still a cute ring and Amber did a a good job as she handmakes these. I would also like to note it makes my finger and surrounding fingers a little red and rather itchy. It may be the studs or band, what it's made of, the type of ring OR a personal issue I have with my skin.

Let's discuss size. For reference: again I bought a size 6 and it only fits on my ring finger and pinky finger, not any of my other ones, so I think it's important to size each one of your fingers or the finger you want the ring for, as it will not likely fit on all of them. The ring fits almost too snug but I'm glad I got the size 6 but I would've had to size up if I had wanted it for any other bigger fingers.

Overall I'm conflicted with my purchase and unsure if I would do business with her again. I rate the ring based on look, feel and price a 3/5 and the shopping experience a 5/5.

Bang Energy. Delish Strawberry Kiss Energy Drink Review.


I've done quite a few reviews from this brand (search them on my blog) and today I'm trying the Delish Strawberry Kiss.

This is my favourite Bang thus far. It's so good! It tastes so fruity and sweet, like liquid strawberry candy. Honestly it's delicious and I'd love 100 more haha, I rate it 5/5.

Note: I'm on certain medications that do not mix with this type of energy drink, it gives me weird side affects so I will no longer be enjoying these other than a few sips for review. So I WILL continue to review them but I will sadly not be buying anymore to enjoy, only to share.

Bolthouse Farms. C Boost Smoothie Review.


I have done one other review from this brand (search it on my blog) and today I'm trying the C Boost smoothie.

This smoothie has various fruits: mango, pears, apples and acerola cherries. I was excited to try this one as I love all these fruits, minus the cherries as I've never had this kind before and I'm not a fan of regular cherries but I wanted to try it anyway.

It's delicious! I don't like love it but I do really really like it! I think it's mostly pear, cherry and mango but I'm not upset at all. I'd grab it again for sure and I rate it 4.5/5.

Note: I haven't done a review on the strawberry banana smoothie, yet I've been drinking it for many years. I just never got around to doing one and thought maybe 7+ years late is too late BUT I want to do one anyway, stay tuned for that one and one other I have on the way.

FragranceNet. Only The Brave by Diesel Cologne. Product and Website Review.


I've been on the hunt for perfumes and colognes, I had two people recommend this website to me, I also was looking for recommendations on perfumes and colognes.

I was told to check out Only The Brave by Diesel. So I checked it out the site, today they were doing a sale, where I got a coupon.

I'm not a cologne person usually but I love colognes haha and I'm sometimes stingy on prices but this one has great reviews and my friend said it's awesome! I of course couldn't commit to a bigger size than the travel bottle, so I just went with the travel bottle.

This is my cart:

I'm glad I did this now, the sale ends today. I placed my order August 8th 2022. I'm kinda bummed I don't get the really cool bottle but I didn't buy a big enough bottle haha. If I love this cologne enough I can buy this at a local Shoppers Drug Mart, I didn't just do that now because again I didn't want to commit to a big bottle and this store doesn't do travel sizes.

Today is now August 16th, my cologne has arrived.

In the box came a sample of another cologne and the one I purchased:

This is the sample scent, it screams middle aged man at church; not too bad but a very grown up scent and I rate it 3/5.

Here is the Diesel scent I bought, bigger bottle than I thought I was getting haha nice. I think it screams 19 year old male who's trying to impress the ladies, so he puts on an old man kinda musky scent. This scent reminds me of an ex lover of mine from my teen years, who looked kinda like Vanilla Ice. So if you can imagine what that smells like, you'll get a gist of this cologne. It's not a bad cologne, the more I smell it it grows on me haha and I rate it 3.5/5.

Overall I had a good experience with this website, it was great with a coupon and the shipping felt quick to me and I was overall happy with my shopping experience. I think this website works best for products that you already know you love and want at a cheaper price than what most retailers are selling the product for. I would consider shopping with them again and I rate them 5/5.

Dr. Oetker. Deluxe Pizza Review.

I've done quite a few reviews on this brand (search them on my blog) and today I'm doing the deluxe pizza.

I love the array of toppings and kinds of toppings and the crunch of the veggies. The flavours are nice with a pretty good crust, this overall is a really nice pizza. I'm normally a lover of deulxe pizzas already, so I'm not surprised I enjoyed this one. I'd get it again and I rate it 4/5.

Ice Cream 2. Fruit Parfait Review.


My last review was from this restaurant (check it out on my blog) and today I'm trying a fruit parfait.

This parfait has soft serve (can become dairy free with a sub of dole whip), strawberries, bananas, blueberries, strawberry sauce and granola.

This parfait was really good. The soft serve was great, so were the fruits and sauce and I loved the addition of granola but I just thought it needed more granola; though there may have been if I got a larger size parfait but my stomach couldn't handle that haha. I would've preferred yogurt to the soft serve but it was not an option. I'd get it again and I rate it 4.5/5.

Ice Cream 2. Mango Dole Whip Dessert Review.


I have been to this ice cream place once before many years ago but I never reviewed the ice cream on my blog. Today I'm trying the dole whip. This dessert is most commonly made with mango, ice cream and sugar but you can make it vegan with different ice cream that's dairy free. This particular dole whip is labelled as dairy free, so it's a great alternative to a dairy free diet for vegans or those with dairy/lactose intolerances and allergies.

It's very mango forward of course but overall pretty good, though it gives a lot of brain freeze. To describe this dessert, the texture is if soft serve and sorbet had a baby. I'd eat it again but I'm not sure I'd buy it again but I rate it 3.5/5.

I have gone once more after this review, so stay tuned for the next one!
