My First Fairy Loot!

I love reading - I don't have as much time as I would like to read, but nevertheless I love reading.  I'm always looking for some good reads, so I found this subscription service called Fairy Loot on Instagram.  I started following them on Instagram and loved what I saw.  They are based in London and have monthly themes.  It is a fantasy-focused subscription box containing recently released Young adult books and other bookish goodies.  So I decided to sign up.

Last month I received my first box!

My first reaction was pure excitement and when I opened it, I loved everything!!

The card, the bookmark, the mug, socks, bath salts, candle & book......loved it all!!!

The theme was Twisted Tales, so everything in the box relates to this theme.

The candle is from Wick & Fable and the scent is Hinterland, which has a woody scent.  The candle relates to the book in the box.
The bath salts are Poisonous Apple, from Little Heart and you can guess what fairytale this belongs to.
The socks, which are cute & comfy, are called the Witch & The Gingerbread House - inspired by Hansel and Gretel.
The mug is an exclusive design called 'Grimm Tales' designed by Aunjuli Art and includes art from all the Grimm fairytales.
The bookmark, or better yet, the woodmark, is from Ink and Wonder and it is Little Red Riding Hood!
And finally, the book - the real reason I signed up for this subscription: The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert.

I've already used the socks and mug on Saturday night.  The bath salts will be used tonight while I soak in the tub reading my new book and burn the candle.

Can't wait to get started!

I know this is a young adult book, and I may be too old to be reading YA books, but I love them!  Especially Science Fiction - anything to do with fairies, vampires, witches, I love them all!  The price is a bit high and I imagine its due to the shipping since I'm in the US and this box is coming from London.  So far I'm very happy with everything I recieved.  I'll follow up with a book review once I'm finished with it, but for now I think I will enjoy it.

I will be continuing my subscription for March.  If I'm as happy with the next box, I may go another month.  My subscription runs month to month and I can cancel at any time. So as long as I can afford it and I keep loving the boxes, I will continue it.

Do you subscribe to any book boxes?  Which ones?  I'd love to hear what you like and if you've tried Fairy Loot - how do you like it?

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.

After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.

Cooking Corner: Cookbook Challenge Day 1

Hi everyone!  I'm starting April with a little challenge for myself.  You are all welcome to join if you choose.  I have a rather large collection of recipes that I've never tried and since I started to declutter my life of things I don't need, this is one area that needs help. What do I need so many cookbooks and binders of recipes for? I don't know - it just takes up space and it's another thing for me to clean.  So, I decided that if I can't find good recipes that we love, there is no point in keeping the book or recipe.  I attempted this challenge a few years ago but never followed through.  This time, I intend to stick with it.
Here's my challenge:
Pick a book a month and try some recipes.
Decide what we like and what we don't.
If I have at least 15 recipes that we like, the book stays.  If not, I'll just copy the few recipes we liked and get rid of the book.
Not sure what I'll do with the book yet.  I'll figure it out at the end of th…
