Review: The Essential Instant Pot Cookbook by Coco Morante

I’ve recently received another book from Blogging for Books to review.  The great thing about Blogging for Books is that you get to choose the book you would like to review.  I’ve had an Instant Pot for about 2 years now and have always loved it, so I thought it would be great to get The Essential Instant Pot Cookbook by Coco Morante.  I am SO glad that I chose this book as it’s already been used quite a few times!

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.

Review: Ipsy & Boxycharm January 2017

When I blogged about my Birchbox subscription a couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that I had also subscribed to a couple of others.  Well, here they are!  I decided to show you my January 2017 Ipsy & Boxycharm packages in one blog/vlog.

Ipsy is a subscription bag rather than a box and costs $10 each month.  It contains 5 sample sized products AND you get it in a cute little bag!

Boxycharm is slightly different as you get 5 full sized products but it’s slightly higher priced at $21.  I’ve pictured both below & also talked about them in the vlog.  Let me know what you think to each.  Have you ever used any of the products I’ve received?

Review: Home Sewn by Cassandra Ellis + Giveaway

Due to life being extremely busy of late, I’m only just getting round to writing about a book I received last year from Blogging for Books.  When I made my last selection I can remember how great it was that there was finally a sewing book!  Of course, I didn’t hesitate when choosing AT ALL.

Birch box January 2016

At the end of November 2016 I subscribed myself to a couple of beauty boxes.  I have a huge love for trying new make up products and had found that each time I went into my local beauty store, I spent a small fortune to satisfy my need of trying new products.  I then noticed a Buzzfeed article for the top beauty subscription boxes of 2016.   After reading, I signed up for 3 different monthly subscription boxes and one quarterly box.  I hope to put a quick review of each one on here to share some new products with you.

One of my monthly subscription boxes is Birchbox.  This subscription is $10 each month and it  contains 5 sample sized products tailored to your skin, hair & style.  Each month I receive an email asking me which box I would like & if you get in early enough you can actually choose some of your samples.  I was a little late to see the email this month though so I got the curated box, which is a predetermined set of samples.  I didn’t mind this though because I love to try anything new!

Review: Country Cooking From A Redneck Kitchen by Francine Bryson

Ive had this cookbook from Blogging For Books for a while now & I just haven’t gotten around to reviewing it on the blog yet. I chose to review Country Cooking from a Redneck Kitchen as I’m always interested in the Southern cooking style, especially when it comes to home cooked food & grilling.   I initially flicked through it, like every other cookbook I own, and chose a couple of recipes that appealed to me.
