What's For Dinner?

Happy Friday everyone!!

I have a yummy post for you today! As many of you already know, I am a vegetarian/ vegan and I LOVE food! I probably spend half my paycheck at the grocery store and the other at Sephora haha! Recently I was scrolling through my Instagram feed and came across a company called Veestro.
The food looked super yummy so I clicked on the link to their website and to my surprise I found out that they were an all vegan company! 
Every meal is plant based and is made from organic, preservative free foods and what's even more exciting is that ALL of the meals are pre-made!! No chopping, mixing or preparing involved! Just heat and serve and you're good to go. 
I knew I had to try it out and after reading multiple positive reviews on the meals I decided to place an order. I chose the Starter Pack which consists of 12 meals which is enough for 4 days. Here's a sample of what the menu consisted of:

Sample Menu:

Red Curry with Tofu and Veggies
Savory Croquettes with Veggie Hash
Country Fried Chick’n 
Enchilada Casserole
Thai Chick’n Stew
Three Layer Scramble
Oatmeal Breakfast Pie
Golden Chickpea Stew
Soba Noodles with Peanut Sauce
Veggie Burger Patty
Tomato Lentil Soup
Veggie Empanadas
Johnny Appleseed Juice

For me the price of the Starter Pack is extremely reasonable ($99). On average I spend about $80-$100/ week on food for myself and I have to prepare my meals on top of that. Plus all of the meals from Veestro come frozen so I can use and save those meals to last longer then a week if I'm only replacing my lunch and dinner. 

Now to the yummy part! Here's a peek at some of my FAVORITE meals that I received in my Starter Pack, These were so hard to pick because they were all AMAZING!!



Johnny Appleseed Juice: I am very picky about my juices and this was was a winner! There was a perfect balance or earthy and sweet. 



Oatmeal Breakfast Pie: This dish was so hearty! I usually eat oatmeal for breakfast so I was really excited about this meal. It was like having dessert for breakfast! Who doesn't want that!?




Veggie Empanadas: I can't believe the serving size you get in each meal! I double checked the package to make sure I was supposed to eat all three haha! I loved these babies! Again very filling and super tasty!



Country Fried Chick'n: This was by far my absolute FAVORITE meal! I can't even begin to explain how super duper yummy and satisfying this dish was! I will definitely be ordering this again! Everything from the mashed potatoes to the gravy and especially the chick'n was out of this world!! 



Three Layer Scramble: Okay now I know that this doesn't look visually appealing by it was so tasty! This was another one of my favorites! It tasted like a taco haha! I will definitely be ordering this breakfast dish again.



Red Curry with Tofu & Veggies: My mouth is watering just thinking about this meal! I love In dian food and this dish tasted like it came from a restaurant! The rice was super filling and the curry gave the tofu just the right amount of flavor and kick!



Enchilada Casserole: These dishes took me around the world with flavors! This was a Mexican delight! I throughly enjoyed this dish! I loved the texture and the flavor and and it was super filling! I will be ordering this meal again!

I thoroughly enjoyed everything that I received from Veestro. I cannot wait to place my next order and try out all of the other dishes they have to offer! Nothing was super salty and certainly nothing lacked flavor. I hope that this will give any of you that extra boost you may need to try out a plant based meal/ vegan meal. I love getting to share yummy and healthy vegan food with all of my viewers. Hope I didn't make you all too hungry ;) 

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have an amazing weekend!

July Glossybox Reveal & Review #MirrorMirrorMonday

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope you all enjoyed the weekend! Today I am bringing to you my July Glossybox. This is going to be my last Glossybox, I decided to cancel my subscription for now, not because I don't like it, it's just I would rather spend the $21/ month on other beauty products. I may resume it in the future but for now I am going to be taking a break from it. Now, let's get started on what I got in this month's box.


I actually really liked the product selection this month. I received a nice variety of things and I was excited to give them a try. Plus I always reuse the empty Glossybox themselves as a storage container in my dresser drawers ;).


Fango Essenziali: Purify Treatment Sheet Mask: I LOVE sheet masks! This mask is no acceptation! It contains lavender oil and arnica to help calm and soothe the skin as well as control oil and tighten pores. A little trick I like to do with sheet masks is I store them in the refrigerator so they are super cooling when I put it on. Sheet masks are also really inexpensive so it's like getting a spa treatment without spending a lot of money.


GLOV: Glov Quick Treat- I've never seen anything like this, I  thought that this was pretty cool! Glov is an innovative microfiber cloth that fits right onto your finger and all you have to do is apply water to it and it removes your makeup. Plus it's reusable! Just wash it with a little soap and let it dry.



Eyeko: Fat Stick in Satin- This eyeshadow stick is very convenient. I just swipe a few coats over my eyelids I'm ready to go! I got this pretty purple grey color that really makes my blue eyes pop. It's the perfect makeup for day or night.



SINFULCOLORS: Kylie Jenner Trend Matters Satin Collection (Kommando)- I was no excited when I saw the color of this nail polish! It's like the perfect nudey pink color with just a hint of silver sparkle. Plus it has gel technology so it makes it a little more wearable and won't chip off as easily.


Leighton Denny Expert Nails: Miracle Mist- To aide in the manicure process is this quick drying mist. Anything that helps my nails dry quicker is a favorite of mine. I will definitely put this product to good use.


Tree Hut Bare: Moisturizing Shave Oil- This shave oil smells SO good! As soon as I got it wanted to jump in the shower and shave my legs haha! This shave oil is said to prevent razor bumps, ingrown hairs and skin irritation that can be caused by shaving. A little bit goes a long way too! My legs were left feeling a looking silky smooth!

I hope you all enjoyed today's post. I was very pleased with all of the products that I got in my July Glossybox and will definitely be putting these items to good use.


Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great week!

'ENLITE'n Me #MirrorMirrorMonday

Happy Monday everyone! 

Have I got something exciting for you!

Many of you may have seen in last Monday's post that I mentioned the brand Enlite Beauty in my CVS haul. I had heard about this brand a few months ago and have had my eye out at CVS for it ever since. I knew once I found it I would have to purchase a few items and put them to the test. Today I will be giving you my review and thoughts on the products I purchased from this line.

Here we go....


CVS has really stepped up their game in the skincare world and I couldn't be more excited! Like I always say, just because something is expensive doesn't mean it's going to work. There are numerous drugstore products that work better than many high end products from Sephora and department stores. I am in love with the Enlite packaging as well. It's simple, sleek and gets your attention with the pretty colors and metallic finish. 


How cute are these products!? I am obsessed with the look of them! These are the types of bottles you want to display on your vanity! I don't know about you, but it makes me even more excited to use the product when the packaging is pretty haha! But what's more important is what's inside! :)


Super Face: Heightened Awareness- Oh this product smells so good! This facial mist can be used anytime throughout the day to refresh your skin when you need a little pick me up. It contains peppermint oil and coconut water to hydrate the skin and give you a quick pick-me-up. Revitalize and energize with one simple toning mist!


It gives your skin an instant glow! Plus it's not sticky or heavy on your face either which to me is super important in a facial mist.


Flawless Body: Body Double- I love a good BB cream for my face so why should my body be any different? Now you can give your body some BB love with this lightweight cream. It contains hyaluronic acid, shea butter and caffeine to boost, nourish and stimulate your skin. 


I love the subtle glow it gives to my skin as well without being shimmery or glittery. It smells yummy too, kind of like coconut!


Super Face: Secret Service- This is the ultimate lip serum! It contains sweet almond oil, shea butter and vitamin E to treat, hydrate, nourish, soothe and protect your precious lips.


 I love the bottle as well. It looks like a needle that's going to plump your lips. The applicator tip gently glides the product onto your lips leaving a nice even layer of product.


I love the formulation as well. It's not sticky or greasy at all! It just leaves your lips with a full gorgeous sheen.  


Super Face: Skin Cardio- This instant lifting and tightening facial gel is my FAVORITE product from this line up! After putting this on, I stared at the mirror in awe of my skin! you can actually feel the serum firming up the skin! I apply this in the morning, let it sit two minutes to set and work it;s magic and then I go about my normal routine. My makeup slides on flawlessly and my skin looks airbrushed. I would highly recommend trying out this serum! This is my kind of cardio haha!



Super Face: Glow for It- This exfoliating glow mask contains Spanish Clay, Green Tea and Volcanic Ash Extract which extracts impurities, calms and detoxifies the skin. This mask is INCREDIBLE! When I first applied it, the tingly sensation was a little strong but after a few minutes it subsided and began to set. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes and once it's all dry, use warm water to gently massage it off the skin. It contains micro-fine pumice powder that gently removes dead skin cells and dirt leaving your face SUPER smooth! It also left this really cool feeling on my skin. My face felt so clean after using this mask and left behind such a beautiful glow. I would recommend using this mask once a week for an instant refresher. 

These aren't all of the products from the Enlite Beauty line. There are so many more other items that I would love to try out and put to the test. So far I give this line a BIG two thumbs up!!

I hope you all enjoyed today's post! Let me know what products you have tried out from this line and what some of your favorites are. Happy shopping!
