REVIEW: BARON CHOCOLATIER

Image
DISCLAIMER: I received product for free in exchange for an honest review. 
LOOK: I loved the packaging of this product. It is elegant and clearly displays what the product looks like. Each truffle is individually wrapped so its easy to display on your desk at work and to share with friends (or keep for yourself!).
SCENT: The scent of chocolate is always good. Truffles with Coconut smell even better. The coconut scent combined with the chocolate makes for a truly deluxe experience that is hard to find from the comfort of your own home.
TASTE: I received two flavors. I tried truffles with roasted coconut and truffles with pistachio. Both were amazing. I was expecting the coconut ones to taste great and the product exceeded my expectations. The chocolate with pistachios was great too. Baron Chocolatier  has a magnificent gift of combining chocolate with other great flavors to make amazing flavor creations.

REVIEW SAAVY NATURALS

Image
DISCLAIMER: I received product in exchange for an honest review
Saavy Naturals offers pure, vegan, and gluten-free products. Lets get to the review.
LOOK: I received the Bulgarian Rose collection which, by the way, is the perfect collection to purchase for spring/summer. I adore how each product in the Bulgarian Rose collection has the same label. It really brings the products together and shows them as a collection instead of just similar smelling products. The label is also super cute. I love how the label has natural theme. This nature theme is great because Saavy Naturals offers organic and natural products. The browns and pinks just really worked well together to make this label look cute, professional, and, above all else, saavy.
SCENT: The scent was not too light or too heavy. it was that perfect medium that everyone wants to find in a scented product. Especially in regards to the lotion and candle, the scent lasted for a long time. In fact, I even received several compliments…

REVIEW: CARVED

DISCLAIMER: I received this product in exchange for an honest review.
Carved is a small business that hand makes phone cases out of wood. You can find them on their website, their instagram, or their facebook. You can also find them on twitter under #carved. Lets get to the review.
LOOK: The design itself is very unique. I love how this case has an optical illusion on it. These cases are refreshing and new. There is nothing else like it out in store or online. Wooden cases have a certain rustic appeal to them that make them so popular. Look no further than Carved for a cute phone case.
SERVICE: I love Carved's speedy service. Their customer service was kind. I enjoyed how their customer service was a real person and not just an automated response. 
WOOD: Wood is natural and organic, so no two pieces look alike. Because of this, every phone case is unique, just like the people using the phone. Carved phone cases contain natural beauty that is hard to find elsewhere in our modern w…

REVIEW: DIVINE ARTS

DISCLAIMER: I received this product for free in exchange for an honest review
Divine Arts offers books and e-books to share the new and ancient knowledge that is emerging from scientific, indigenous, and wisdom cultures.
LOOK: As you can see, I was lucky enough to get to review two books this time! I really loved the cover of The Jeweled Highway. I felt like the forest path perfectly described what the story entails. It was overall a beautiful cover. The Message also had a really neat cover that I definitely enjoyed, but I felt like it didn't really match the story. Either way, both of these books had stunning covers. 
THE JEWELED HIGHWAY: This is an inspiring story about finding yourself and following your heart. It tells the inside story of finding meaningful engagement in our society.
THE MESSAGE: Your life has been designed by your soul. Your soul guides you. As one man learns, the more you listen to your soul, the more joyous your life becomes.

BloomsyBox is a flowers of the month club, sending you beautiful, fresh flowers once a month. Lets get to the review.

BloomsyBox has very impressive and beautiful flowers, and packages their boxes in a way that protects those flowers during shipping.

The bold words make the bottle easy to read and understand, unlike other product who try to fool you with small print.

WINTER FASHION: LAZY DAY

Image
Check out some of my best lazy day outfits that you are definitely going to want to wear this weekend!

#1-Melt the Chill

Add some color by pairing red and blue. To keep things from matching too much, balance things out with a white t-shirt. If this red isnt quite your style, try a darker maroon with black!

#2-Boho Blizzard

Boho doesnt have to be only for hot weather. Channel your inner bohemian with this casual look. Beaded bangles, deep brown hues, and tribal earrings are exactly what comes to mind when you think boho-chic. But when you add a cable sweater, warm boots, and faded jeans, you get a cozy winter twist!

#3-Casual

If cool and casual is your go to look in warmer weather, then try an outfit like this. Greys add a cool twist to a comfy outfit and black pulls it all together. A soft sweater and scarf makes the outfit look cute and not over the top.

#4-Warm and Cozy

Keep this season warm with burgundy. A vest works perfectly in this color pallet. Add some accessories, and youre …
