Veev Cocktail Review!

No comments:

Being an adult has a lot of cons: bills, working a job nonstop, getting wrinkles, etc. But there are some pros and one of them is the ability to drink alcohol legally. Which is why I was pretty excited to review Veev Cocktail. Veev is a better alternative to vodka.

As their website says: It is perfectly balanced to highlight our natural flavors, aromas, and tasting notes. The result is a full-bodied spirit formulated with just the right amount of acai berry and other natural ingredients to deliver a truly smooth finish.

Vodka is typically my #1 drink so I was dry excited to try an alternative to it and I really enjoyed this. It is a bit more flavorful than vodka, not like overwhelmingly fruity or anything but just great subtle hints. The first thing I thought was this would make the perfect shot just because it tastes better than plain old vodka.

I decided to keep it class though and drink it with some orange soda. And you know what? Not a bad idea. I'd drink it again.

Overall, I really enjoyed Veev even though I'm not 100% sure what the huge difference is between this and vodka, but it tastes just as nice. Definitely check it out, you won't be disappointed!

Buy It! Head on over to Veev's website and see where you can buy it near you! I found mine easily at my local Ralph's!

Loot Crate January 2015 Review!

No comments:

It's already 2015, man how does the time fly? I don't know. Apparently, Loot Crate doesn't either because this month their theme is "Rewind." It's a look back at geek and gaming past, the perfect theme for this time of year when you're blindsided by a new year and everything changing. Let's get into it!

This box includes:
- A Retro Arcade Skinny Tie
- a 10-Doh! Figure of a Korben's Alley Nintendo Game
- Exclusive Star Wars Comic Book Issue 001
- Comic Notebook
- Exclusive 8-Bit Glasses


- Exclusive Voltron Blueprint T-shirt

I thought that this was such an awesome box because it was full of a little bit of everything. The tie was so cool and something I have never seen before in the box. In the pamphlet it shows men and women wearing it, though I'm not sure I can rock it, I may give it to my guy friend.

I loved the comic book because I do like Star Wars but I looove me some Han Solo. I'm not a huge comic reader, but I do plan on diving into this one. And saving it. Forever. Because that's what you do with comics right?

I liked the comic notebook, too. In it, it had spaces in the shape of comic book squares and such where you write all your notes. I liked the size because it was so small that it fits in any bag. It's perfect because I always think of funny jokes or ideas when I have no paper, so then I use my phone but then I forget about all the notes on my phone.

The figure was really cute, I used to play Nintendo a lot when I was really young with my older brother but I don't remember this game, and I tried to google it but got nothing. Not sure if it's supposed to be a fake game but just for fans of Nintendo games alone or what. Still it's pretty cute, a nice office desk item.

I really liked the Voltron shirt because I was obsessed with my older brother's Voltron (pattern here, huh?) and my mom gave it to me but ended up hiding it and saving it because she figured it'd be worth something. I actually wore this shirt to a Spartan race on Saturday and got a load of compliments on it but also a lot of "Is that a Transformers shirt?" Oye. No, friends, way cooler than Transformers. I saw a guy actually wearing the 8-Bit Sunglasses there, too and he said "I see you got your crate, too." Pretty funny. The glasses are cool too, I feel like they'd be fun to wear around in the car and see if anyone notices your awesomely unique shades.

Overall, this was a pretty fun Loot Crate. Once again, they don't disappoint. Definitely check them out, you won't be disappointed!

Chobani Simply 100 Review!

No comments:
Hope your healthy eating of 2015 is going well! Almost one month down, can you do twelve? I struggle maintaining a healthy diet all of the time. My main weakness? Snacks. I just can't stop eating them sometimes/most of the time. I need to work on my portion control. Fortunately, snacks like Chobani Simply 100 help curb that urge because they come in one single serving bowl, so enough is enough when it's done.

We all know and love Chobani, they make the best greek yogurt around. But have you heard of their latest Simply 100 line? It's pretty delicious.

I received one free product coupon, so I headed to my local Ralph's and picked up the blueberry flavor because blueberry is my favorite everything. I ate it at work during lunch today and it's pretty amazing.

Simply 100 has only 100 calories and made with only natural ingredients. The blueberries are fruit on the bottom style, which I am not a huge fan of with yogurt, but this one tasted pretty good. Sometimes the added in fruit consistency grosses me out but these blueberries tasted great and not gooey. 

This new line comes in four flavors: blueberry, strawberry, vanilla, and peach. You’ll be satisfying your taste buds along with your commitment to healthy living each time you reach for a scoop. 

Overall, once again Chobani does not disappoint. These make great snacks to go with your salad (if you're like me) for lunch or even a late night snack instead of that ice cream. Definitely check them out! You won't be disappointed.

Buy It! Head on over to Chobani's website and see where they sell it near you!

I received this yogurt complimentary thanks to BzzAgent, but the thoughts and reviews above are completely 100% my own opinion.

Blue Diamond Almonds #GameChangingSnacks Review!

No comments:

Hey guys! It's football and hockey season, have you've been watching? How are your teams playing? How hooked are you? We all know a few big games are coming up, any fun party plans? One primary necessity for parties are the snacks. Chips, dip, wings, and ALMONDS! Yup, Blue Diamond Almonds are delicious and make the perfect Game Changing snacks for your sports celebrations!

I received two cans:
Wasabi and Soy Sauce

Sorry for the boring photos, but both of my cans aren't in the house. I brought the smokehouse immediately to work to have as a snack, it's my favorite. It's a nice, delicious savory nut that's great to have to wake you up during that 2pm slump at work (how I use them) or better yet as some munchies for your sports game party.

The wasabi and soy sauce one was a crazy taste for me. Not my particular favorite, I actually gave them to a friend who loves the flavors more. But another awesome flavor to add to your snacking.

That's what I love about Blue Diamond, their flavor variety never stops surprising you. These particular flavors though are perfect for sports parties. I mean smokehouse is definitely going to compliment those BBQ wings perfectly. Definitely check them out! You won't be disappointed!

Buy It! Head on over to Blue Diamond's website to see where they sell them near you!
