Rave & Review: My Second Graze Subscription Box

Monday, February 24, 2014

Hey friends! Exciting news, today is the one year anniversary of the launch of Haute in Hell! I am so amazed that I've had over 16,000 hits in one year. My goal was to have 12,000 hits in one year and you've helped me exceed that goal! Stay tuned for this week's Friday Fingers! as I'll be doing a giveaway (US readers only) in honor of the one year anniversary! Thank you for continuing to be faithful readers of my blog.

I know I got a lot of people interested in graze the first time I wrote about it. I thought I'd come back on and show what I got in my second box. In case you missed my first post on graze and how it works you can catch up here

*The following review is my own opinion, I'm not paid by graze and I pay for my own boxes!*

Beth Bakes: Healthy Meals

Sunday, February 16, 2014

Hey everyone! I have a lot of exciting recipes that are both easy to make and healthy to indulge! For those of you that follow me on Instagram you'll notice a lot of my photos have hash tags like #loveyourbody and #tiuteam. That's because I've been following the Tone It Up nutrition plan and weekly schedules as a part of their Love Your Body Series. It's been an amazing lifestyle change for me and I am truly amazed that in 45 days I have the body I've always wanted.

[Side Note: I'd love to show pictures of my progress from doing the program but my job is very conservative and would not find photos of my abdomen appropriate. While I love my new body, it's not worth losing my awesome job! Hopefully, the next time I do a haul you'll be able to see definition in my arms and legs!]

Being on the Tone It Up nutrition plan, Katrina & Karena (your trainers) encourage you to eat lean, clean & green! Which is really easy to do! The following recipes are some of my own and some I have taken from my favorite food blogs! Enjoy and happy cooking!

Friday Fingers!: Wrapped in Rubies

Friday, February 14, 2014

Happy Valentine's Day & Friday! It's a super snowy Valentine's Day in PA. Be careful if you and your sweetie are going out to celebrate the "holiday." I personally have no plans to leave the house. I've got House of Cards and a box of Ladurée French macaroons to keep me happy. The only date I have is with the heating pad after all that shoveling!

Anyway, enough about the snow. I have been back logged with Friday Fingers! Ever since Santa gave me four nail polishes in my stocking I've been dying to try them out! I even painted my nails during the week, which is not like me. However, there isn't much to do when you're snowed in. Which has been almost a weekly event!

Today, I'm reviewing and swatching wrapped in rubies by essie. I thought it would be an appropriate color for those of you looking for the perfect Valentine's mani!

My Style: Valentine's Day Gifts

Wednesday, February 5, 2014

Hey friends! I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while but I've been very busy with work. I come home with intentions to blog but after I make dinner I'm pretty much exhausted. This Sunday I had brought my computer to my parents' house where it's nice a quiet and I can accomplish a lot. However, their internet went down and I was unable to blog.

Enough of my excuses! Today I'm talking about Valentine's Day. I personally don't celebrate the holiday. I'm a firm believer in showing you care 365 and I'm not about PDA. However, I never say no to a gift so... twist my arm!

I've created a list of Dos & Don'ts in the gift giving department. I've created this list with mostly men in mind because they are clueless. Here it goes:
