My First Degustabox Review

Degustabox review



Degustabox review

Hi guys and girls I was sent a degustabox from the company.
Degusta Box is a box you get filled with lovely tasty treats its a subscription service which you can join for £12.99 per month. (with no contract, commitment or obligation)

However i have a Discount code for you meaning you get £3 off using this discount code
4784620 at the checkout. (enjoy)

Each month they will send you a box filled with goodies and the goodies inside are worth more than what you pay for your subscription fee each month meaning you are getting a great deal.
perfect if you love tasty treats and want to save a bit of money at the same time.

Any way this is the first box i have received when it arrived i was like excited and couldn't wait to open it,it felt like Christmas i sat on the floor and was like very keen to open the box, as i opened the box and peaked inside i was even more excited seeing all these wonderful goodies inside.
I called hubby over to have a look and even he was impressed with what was inside.





SEE BELOW TO SEE WHAT WAS INSIDE MY DEGUSTABOX.
                            (please note each month will contain different goodies)



Crabbies

Crabbie's cloudy lemonade with ginger a non alcoholic drink,
which tastes refreshing and full of flavor perfect for all occasions.
i really enjoyed drinking this one and would definitely buy this drink in the future.
price £1.50
Crabbies Zesty lemon alcoholic drink, i wasn't keen on this one but my hubby loved it he said it was refreshing and sweet.
price £1.50









LA VIEJA FÁBRICA
SEVILLE ORANGE MARMALADE

I have never been a fan of marmalade,
so got my hubby to to the taste test on this as he loves marmalade he said he was very tasty and sweet
and packed with flavor he put some on some homemade scones i made and said he thoroughly enjoyed it.

price £1.59








Little Miracles
Organic energy drinks

I am yet to try these and cant wait to try them love the idea of organic energy as they seem really healthy and contain more goodness then some of the energy drinks i have being drinking in the past.
Anyone on a detox would also love these and anyone who loves drinking healthy things to stay healthy and fit.

price £1.59 per bottle.










Pickup chocolate bars.
mouthwatering sweet tasty chocolate bars.
I had to hide these from little girl as they would all be gone in a day if she saw them.
But am gonna pop them in the treat cupboard for when shes been a good girl.

Price £3.38






BURTS

I really enjoyed all three flavors.
The crisps was very light and still very tasty.
i love how light they was and how they made a very nice little snack. my favorite of them all was the Thai because i love chilli

£2.07 - unit 69p






Righteous salad dressings.

raspberry and sweet basil
lemon and mustard seed
mild English blue cheese and cider

haven't tasted these yet but cant wait to try them even if the flavor combos sound a bit weird.
But we all know weird combos can work. after all i do have cheese and jam in sandwiches so will defiantly try these salad dressings. rrp 75p







Nestle Carnation.

Light cooking créme for savory dishes.
perfect for making creamy chicken curries, creamy mushroom sauce to go in a home made pie.
or even to make creamy carbonara, and many other dishes.

i love the idea of this sauce as you do not have to keep it in the fridge like you do with fresh cream this can be stored in the cupboard  with its impressive long expiry date.

Price £3.30 - unit £1.65 








JORDAN'S

Simply Granola 

A perfect healthy nutritious breakfast 
crunchy baked oats with a tasty hint of honey.
perfect for those who want a filling but healthy breakfast to keep them going through the day. what ever you have planned for the day these will help keep you going.

(why not try with yogurt and fresh berries)

price £2.69 





Elizabeth Shaw Dark chocolate mint thins.

Well well well what can i say

This was my favorite sweet  treat in the Degustabox
Tasty rich dark chocolate mint thins these went down a treat.
Me and my hubby both shared these after dinner we both thoroughly enjoyed the richness of the dark chocolate and the freshness of the mint and the white sugar topping was nice and sweet and mouth watering bringing the whole flavors together.

o so delightful this chocolate is Much to good for children this is definitely one for the adults to enjoy after a long day at work or when the kids are in bed.














So there you have it girls and guys my review on the contents of the degestabox if you love food as much as i do. i am sure you would love to have tasty surprises like this arriving at your door every month.
Its like Christmas every month only that all the goods are edible and for only a small cost of £12.99 a month.


Overall verdict.
I am really really impressed with Degustabox and would recommend them to you all.
I really loved the contents of my box every one of them is something i would continue to buy.
I was really impressed with the brand named products inside which were Burts,
Jordan's, Bahlsen, Crabbie's, Little Miracles, Carnation, Elizabeth Shaw,La Vieja Fabrica,righteous.
The box was packaged well and arrived in one piece which is always a good sign.
The box was shipped fast via parcel force, which at first i was skeptical about but was really impressed as it was shipped on 25th September and i received it the next day on 26th September.
I really loved reviewing degustabox and think £12.99 a month is a real bargain for the different tasty goodies they pack inside each month.

Serenity Skin Care Dead Sea Salt




Hi everyone serenity skin sent me a sample pack of bath salts and asked me to review bath salts from the dead sea in jordan.
I received them in the post today (13th september 2014) and tried them straight away as i was feeling stressed from a few personal problems i had last night stressful situation long story.

Anyway my hubby run me a nice hot bath and popped in the salts for me.
i got in the bath and laid back and relaxed and just closed my eyes and daydreamed. starting to feel relaxed decided time to wash my self before the water gets to cold I am bad for that constantly adding more hot water to bath, I love warm baths slightly addicted if I am honest.
I was most certainly feeling more relaxed I actually felt really tired and almost fell asleep kept telling myself don't fall asleep.

By the time it was time to come out the bath i was feeling really sleepy to the point i could of just jumped into bed and slept.
Anyway i jumped out the bath and as I am getting dried noticed how lovely and soft my skin was I was shocked as I haven't had soft skin like this in a very long time.
after admiring my baby soft skin I got dressed in my pjs and went downstairs to drink a coffee.

1 - Skin allergies

The high magnesium and bromide content in dead sea salt is beneficial as an anti allergic due to its cleansing and detoxifying of the skin.

2 - Slows down skin ageing

Your skin shows the first signs of ageing. Dead sea minerals help nourish and restore your skin to appear healthier.

3 - Relaxation and circulation

Bathing in dead sea salt increases blood circulation and detoxifies your body by removing by-products that are formed during stress.

4 - Reduces joint inflammation

Serenity Salts contain Calcium, Potassium, Boron and Strontium; all of which are essential for the body to prevent joint inflammation.

Overall verdict

I would recommend these bath salts because not only did they make me feel nice and relaxed and sleepy they also left my skin feeling clean soft and wonderful.
I personally think these will be suited to everyone purely because they are natural.

the price is quite reasonable because 1kg its only £7.50 which ain't bad for salts that have come from the dead sea in jordan which have so many benefits to help your skin.
Also where the bath salts help you relax might be good for people who struggle to fall asleep to give them a try as they may help, As i haven't been that tired in long time even when its bedtime I am not ever that sleepy but these bath salts have worked wonders for me.









Questions and answers.

Q:where can i buy this product?
A: you can buy them from their website http://serenityskin.co.uk/products-page/

Q: how much do the bath salts cost?
A: £7.50 for a 1kg bottle.

Q: what are the benefits?
A: the bath salts help skin allergies, they also slow down skin aging,help relax you. and even reduces joint inflammation.

Bluewater blogger meetup




Blog Meet up in Bluewater 6th sept 2014
Hey girls n guys thought id share with you all about a blog meet up i attended.
So the bus journey took me about an hour and a bit to get there abit of a way but was all good apart from feeling anxious but one blogger ive had as facebook friend for a few years now lulu met me at the bus stop at bluewater shopping centre in kent and we walked to browns restaurant together where we met up with the fellow bloggers.

You can read lulu's blog here

raffle table
bluewater shopping centre is the 4th largest shopping centre in the in the uk, it has a wide selection
of shops from fashion to beauty and more it is definitely worth checking out if you're looking for a new place to shop as it is the best shopping centre i have been to so far.

Browns restaurant is very spectacular the atmosphere is nice and relaxed.
As well as being relaxed the place is also very well suited to those who have abit of money to spend as it is quite classy, anyone and everyone is welcome and the waiter was friendly and the food looked delicious.


On arrival was greeted by julie our wonderful host who organised the event and had a glass of wine and chatted for hours with the other bloggers. 
The atmosphere was very relaxed but yet amazing it was great to get out the house and meet up with everyone.


One of the Bloggers me and lulu was talking to was helen as seen in the photo here helen was looking rather lovely with the fifties look, helen made me and lulu feel very welcome and we got on really well as us 3 all have kids of our own so made us click well and gave us something else to talk about and also we all live near each other so hopefully we all meet up again soon.

A few of the bloggers ordered food but i didn't eat as i was still feeling a bit unwell from the bus journey anxiety isn't very nice and not to mention having travel sickness which doesn't help.
our goody bags on table.


we all chatted some more about things such as our children or where we are from. and other random things which made me feel at ease because i love talking its what i do best.

After chatting for a few hours we decided to call it a day and julie done a little raffle and then julie got the waiter to take a group photo of us all which was nice, then we was all given a goody bag to take home with us all.

Afterwards me and lulu headed to look around the shops i didn't buy anything though although i was tempted too but was great to look around the amazing shops with lulu and we went to the management suit to pick up my £1000 gift card.
( two £500 gift cards) i won in a competition bluewater recently had on which was a nice ending to the day.


Then we headed for the bus stop as it was getting late like almost 6 oclock.
i finally got home around 7 so it was a pretty long day for me.
took me around an hour to get home aswell so didn't get home till around 7 oclock.
but was surprised by hubby with a chicken stir fry, then wrote this post ready to be published once i finish tweaking it.

Anyways sorry for rambling on just thought id share my post about my lovely day out at bluewater as its an amazing shopping centre and i had a fab day.
