Target Box!

Hey guys! So my boyfriend's sister is amazing, and ordered me a Target box! How sweet is she. Target boxes cost $7 and come out every few months. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe it's seasonal. Don't quote me though, this is my first one. These boxes aren't a subscription, so you have to remember to purchase it. It's a bit different from Birchbox, Ipsy, etc.

This Target box included a Vera Wang perfume sample. Now I have a pretty bad cold, and have no idea what this smells like! I believe it's suppose to have a floral scent. 1 fl oz. of this cost $29.99.

This Eco Tools recycled sponge is $1.97. Right now, Target is offering 50% off  Eco Tools products when you spend $10 on select Burt's Bees products. These Soapbox coconut shampoo and conditioners are $5.99 each for a 16 oz.

I tried this L'Oreal Paris Air Blown Texture Mist while straightening my hair. It didn't do much. I have yet to try it with a hair dryer, which I believe is the key to it. This bottle is just $3.99!

Mayfair body creme...I use to live in a neighborhood named Mayfair! This bottle is $8.99. The Target box is already worth a decent amount more than $7, so you really are getting your money's worth! This Skinfix Lip Repair Balm is $4.99. My boyfriend's sister loves it! I have a ton pf lip balms to use, so I haven't given this one a go yet.

I was SOOO excited to get this! I'm currently testing it out, so we'll see how I like this. The Derma E Hydrating Night Creme is $25.99 for 2 0z, however, it is currently on sale for $20.09.

These cushion foundations are the latest gimmick. These sample is great because it comes with three different shades. A full size of the Lneige BB Cushion is $34! Wow!

I really like nail stickers. Sometimes I'm just too lazy to put in the effort to paint my nails or make cute designs. I find nail stickers last a long time too! These ones from Incoco are so cute. They range from $4.99-$6.99.

As you can see, this box is worth well over $7.00. There are full sized products, and the ones that are samples, are great sizes! They're more like travel sizes!

P.S. Keep in touch!

Trying British Candy and Soda!

Hey guys, long time no blog! Man, I was on a roll too...I've been pretty sick lately. No surprise there...As of lately I've had almost no energy and have been drifting off to sleep throughout the whole day. I apologize for neglecting my blog. I guess I'll give you a brief update before we get into the reason for this blog. First, I cut off most of my hair!
Do you like it? A friend of mine did it. Her name is Megan and her salon is called Rockerhead. It's down South Street in Center City Philadelphia. If you're ever in the area and need yo hair did, check this place out. Megan and her grandmother are so sweet! And tell them Christine sent you!
Secondly, I made a new channel. Heyyy!
My new channel!
It's a channel for movie reviews, recaps on RAW and The Challenge, movie hauls, and more! If you subscribe, we'll be best friends!!!
Now, lets get to business.
I got my candy and sodas from Jolly Grub.
The shipping and handling is a bit pricey. I think it was $11, but that's not too bad when you think about it. They're shipping food, which isn't cheap to do. Some of the things come in glass bottles, and they package it great! Also, it comes so fast.
Let's start off with candy!
Aero Bar
Let me just say, yessss British people! You are doing it so right with this piece of heaven right here! I am so sad that I will have to go back to our peppermint candies. :'( This bar tasted AMAZING! It's light and has a much more authentic peppermint taste than peppermint patties, and other candies like that. The candy bar has these bubbles, which is so cool! It gets cooler...
Do you see how green the inside of this thing is? I love it! Now I wish I had another Aero bar! This one gets a 10/10!
Flake Bar
The look of this bar is a bit off putting. I'm not gonna lie, I think it looks like poo. However, it's actually really good. Like the wrapper says, it really is the flakiest and crumbliest piece of chocolate. This bar is also really light. I always heard British chocolate was much higher quality, and I have to agree. This was also really good. It was my boyfriends favorite. I would give this one a....9/10! My only complaint is it's a bit messy.
 Curly Wurly
We have Cadbury chocolate in the states, but there is so much more to choose from than what we typically get here. I'm not gonna lie, I bought this one for the way it looked. It looks really cool, don't you think. Again, I feel like the chocolate is higher quality. The caramel was that really sticky kind. Kind of like the ones you find in a Sugar Daddy for all my U.S readers out there. I don't like the sticky caramel, but it did taste really good. This was my boyfriend's other favorite. I think my second favorite was the flake bar. This one is tied for third for me. I'd give it an 8/10!
Galaxy Bubbles
Galaxy Bubbles was essentially the Aero bar without the mint in it. So I obviously really liked it. I prefer mint and chocolate to just plain chocolate. We got the milk chocolate one. They also had an orange and chocolate one. I'd like to try that one too. I'd give this an 8/10.
 Dip Dab
This was actually recommended to me from the girls from the Reflection youtube channel. If you check them out, tell them Christine from Christine's World says heyyyy!
This one was not for me...or my boyfriend. It was really creamy, yet sour at the same time. It was an odd mixture for me and I didn't like it very much. I would give it a 2/10.
Now on to the sodas...
Fentimans Curiosity Cola
First of all, the bottle is so cool looking! Why can't our sodas come in cool bottles? There are several differences between U.S cola and British Cola. In this soda, they use sugar cane and fermented ginger root. I've had soda's with cane sugar before, and I don't mind it at all. I did however mind this! My brother liked it, my boyfriend wasn't much of a fan, but I HATED it! I think it was the fermented ginger. For some reason, it burned my tongue. I don't know why. To me, this tasted like Root Beer and Dr. Pepper got together and had a baby. I Hate Root Beer and Dr, Pepper. I'd give this a 2/10. I feel like I could get use to it if I absolutely had to drink it, but I rather never drink it again.
Fentimans Cherrytree Cola
Again, very cool bottle. Again, I hated this one as well. haha It tasted like Dr. Pepper and burned my tongue. Yuck! My brother liked this as well, my boyfriend thought it was okay, and I HATED it as much as the other. 2/10
 Irn Bru
This was the last soda I got. It tasted like a cream soda. I don't love cream sodas, but they're not awful. This was the best one in my opinion. I would give this a 5/10. If you like cram soda, you'll like this

My whole purchase from Jolly Grub, tax and shipping included, was about $22. I don't think that was too bad. Have you ever tried any of these? What did you think? Are there any other candies and drinks I should try? Jolly Grub has so much on their site. There's desserts, cereals, crisps, teas, Canadian candy Indian candy, and more! I will for sure be ordering from them again!
