Review: Hello Fresh

During my first trimester I lacked a lot of motivation to do anything when I got home from work.  I didn’t have any sickness at all but had a lot of dizzy spells and felt exhausted.  When I would get home from work, I would spend the night on the sofa.  I did a lot of ‘planning’ for our evening meals but they never came to fruition!  We decided to give a meal delivery service a try; something that would be easy for us to make with minimal effort.

We had a lot of options to choose from but we decided to go with Hello Fresh as we had the $35 discount code.  This meant our first box would only be $25 for 3 meals.  An excellent starting price.  We were very impressed from the moment we were choosing our meals online.  They give you 8 meal options each week.  You can opt for the company to choose your meals or you can edit your box and choose what you would like.  With Adam only eating certain food, we chose our own meals!  We picked our delivery date and were excited for our box to arrive.

Lighten Up, Y’all – Classic Southern Recipes

I’m still getting used to the cooking styles and tastes that come from the Southern States.  Most things I have loved but some things have just blown my mind because I just never seen them before.  When this Lighten Up, Y’all cookbook by Virginia Wells became available for review on Blogging For Books, I snapped it up quickly!

Easy…ish Chicken Potstickers/ Gyoza

Back in Sheffield, we used to go to a number of little sushi restaurants.  I loved the little plates whizzing around the conveyor belt waiting to be snapped up.  Adam has never really liked any fish so he was never a fan of any of the rolls.  He usually ordered chicken katsu and chicken gyoza.  I can’t blame him really; they are both really yummy!

Tea…Green Tea

If anyone has ever offered me a cup of green tea, I have always politely declined.  I had a bad experience with some green tea ice cream once; it was gross!  But lately I have been expanded my tea trying palette and was intrigued when I was asked to try out some Matcha Green Tea Powder from Kiss Me Organics.  With the powder, I received a link for a pdf recipe book with loads of stuff in – hot drinks, cold drinks, baking, pizza dough, sauces…loads!  I never really realised how much you could actually make with green tea powder!

My First Influenster VoxBox #FrostyVoxBox

A few weeks ago, I received my first VoxBox from Influenster.  Influenster is a social review site, where you can write and search for product reviews.  I have found it quite useful when buying certain things.  I will always have a quick look on Influenster to read the product reviews.  Reviews are completed on just about anything; shops, makeup, beauty products, food, appliances etc. If you write reviews on here, you are awarded with points that go towards certain badges.  The more points, badges and tasks you do, the more likely you are to get a questionnaire to see if you are suitable for a product testing VoxBox.  Sharing reviews on social media also helps too…the more followers you have across the board increases your social impact.
