Diamond Candles for $19.95!

This weekend only Diamond Candles is offering $19.95 for a single candle. Not quite as good as their Buy 2 Get 1, but if you've been on the fence this is a great way to just try them out without the commitment of multiple candles. The coupon code takes $5 off your purchase (which is like getting free shipping if you buy just one.) I've been eyeballing their new Apple Cider candle so I might just be taking advantage this weekend.
Order by Sunday at midnight with coupon code: FALL3xBT

P.S. In other super cool news they used one of my Instagram photos for their latest giveaway contest!

September KlutchClub

This month's box was all about being stress free! 

I haven't a chance to try everything yet, but read on for my review of what I've tried.

I received the Annie Chun's Seaweed Snacks and the Snapea Crisps in other boxes before and I personally don't care for them.   

The Boom Chicka Pop Sea Salt Popcorn was delicious and made for a great snack at work. 

The PowBab is a supplement chew and it's like candy! These are so good!

DreamWater I've tried before, but this is a new flavor for me.

The rest I'll be trying through the week. 

Let me know what you think of KlutchClub below!

September NatureBox

I apologize in advance, this is going to be a short post for now. Today is the start of my vacation and I'm just writing this up on the train. I got my NatureBox just before I left and literally only got to open it.
I'm interested in the chia seed crackers, my mom LOVES chia seeds and they're really good for you, so here's hoping they taste good.  
The salted caramel pretzel pops seem like something I needed in my life a long time ago.
The cranberry macaroon granola seems interesting and I'm curious to see how I like it. I love cranberries and I love macaroons, but I can be so picky about coconut.
On to what I'm not excited about.
I don't like peas... at all... in any form. Sorry. So we'll see what happens with the smoky bbq peas. I'll try one to be fair.
I'm also not a huge fan of pumpkin seeds. I love making them, but I don't love to eat them. The other thing is that while I can appreciate why NatureBox sends their seeds hulled, I much prefer the texture of breaking open the seeds myself. Maybe that's weird. I can eat a whole bag of sunflower seeds, but if they're already hulled forget it. We'll see how I like the sea salt and cracked black pepper pumpkin seeds.
What are your thoughts on this month's box?

September Love with Food

One of my best friends has Celiac's Disease so it was great to see a box dedicated to gluten free snacks. I was just getting home from work when this arrived and I was STARVING so I pretty much demolished half of this box in one sitting... probably not the healthiest thing I could do, but oh well. Check out the photos below to see this month's box. 

From their site:

These Apple Chips were insanely good! Apples are my favorite part of the Fall!
My inner 6 year old was in LOVE with these puffy, crunchy dinosaurs! 
These Cinnamon Crunch crisps are SO GOOD! I was skeptical because they are corn based, but they are out of this world... which is probably why they are from Cosmos... get it?

Sigma Crème de Couture

I'm so excited that this finally arrived! I've wanted to try Sigma Beauty products for a while and never got around to it. I had to have this palette though since it was just too amazing to pass up. Macarons and Makeup? Yes please! I've been sick all day and literally ran down to the mailbox because the tracker said it arrived.
Much like macarons themselves, this beauty may be small, but it's worth it. The packaging is just darling, that's the best way to describe it. It looks like a little box of Laduree macarons waiting for you to try them all.
Let's get down to the colors! Super saturated and gorgeous matte shades, these are very different than anything else I have. Check out the pictures below and order yours today!

Sigma also has a contest going on right now. Show off your Crème de Couture eye look on Instagram and use #ShowUsYourCouture to win a $250 Sigma Beauty gift card!

Le Métier de Beauté September: Eyes

Over the holiday weekend I got anxious to get my next LMdB box. This month's focus was eyes; True Color Créme Eye Shadows in Champagne Shimmer and Starry Night. These are an approximately $60 value. I was unable to find them available for purchase, but their other shadows are $30. The color payoff is more than I expected and the formula is very creamy. They could definitely be worn alone, but also work well as a base. They recommend the Champagne Shimmer as a face or eye highlighter, but you would have to use a very light hand with it. My swatches below were just a finger swipe and there was fairly good color density.
Overall this month was another great value with 2 full size products and I was thrilled to see that they started including product cards. I also love how beautiful each box is and that there's a hand written note in each one. 
Cost per month: $29 ($348 annually)
This month's box value: $60
