Sorry guys it’s a clickbait but not really ! Ok Lemme do a preface ,  I was looking for an extraordinary first wedding anniversary gift and I stumbled upon this company called lovebookonline . Click lovebookonline.com for details . My first book was made possible by them . Lol I love that I get to be so creative with my gift and yeah personalization is my jazz. I love to be extra. Haha 

If you’re looking for a not-your-usual-gift ,definitely go for this love book. It’s Kinna like a love letter in a book form if that makes sense.

Who among you guys , love home-cooking? or just cooking in general? I’m  definitely the first one who will raise my morena & magical hand! Haha I love food so much that I have to share with y’all this hellofresh meal subscription. Ohh wait, I know you might be wondering, how does  it work?  and most people don’t want to break the  bank with a meal subscription like this as per reviews & article online . But lemme tell you, you can always manage your plans, (meal preferences tab is right there. Woot! ) or even skip and cancel it. See how easy is that? Also a plus factor is they have the best customer service ever! Download the hellofresh app here for more info and you can also access it through your desktop or laptop if you prefer. #Easypeasy! 

Order from the comfort of your home sweety home and with your Christmas pjs on. Can you give me a Yay!? If you’re excited for Christmas 🎄 (inserted a Christmas  tree bc I LOVE!) 

Okay enough for Christmas back to Hellofresh ha! In addition to its (hellofresh) awesomeness  it’s very convenient and if you’re  tired with your usual meal why not try something new – like a restaurant type of meal in a healthier  version and  #affordable side!

Meatloaf Á La Mom with Roasted root veggies and thyme gravy 

Argentine Chimichurri Steak with a Sweet potato,poblano, and tomato jumble (Hubby Approved! Yay!) First meal I’ve cooked so far.

Fall sweets pack |ZenpopJapan review 

lifestyle

Hi lovelies, I can’t  believe it’s November already! #craycray. Also I so love November because it’s my wedding anniversary month. I’m excited! The falling leaves and vibrant colours  of Fall is just  PERFECTION! 

    Not to mention this season is where we just wanna stay in bed, binge-watch netflix shows and probably snacking, nibbling  and gobbling name it!Omg #FoodisLife! 

    Right now I’ve been enjoying the deliciousness and cuteness of my sweets festive fall pack from ZenpopJapan. I actually bought it for my husband because I love food and asian snacks so yeah I’m sharing it to him ofcourse. Haha! 

    Questions: How much does it cost? Is it worth every penny? 

    And the answer is YES! So worth it for a 15 snacks per pack at $29.50. Isn’t so aaaa-mazing!? Not to mention they have selected  the best snacks in Japan and ZenpopJapan also carries ramen pack and a lot more. Check  their website Here.

    My husband and I’s Top 3 Favorites : 

    Pizza Cookroll – the box comes with a description  of each snack you get so here what it says : these tomato flavored crinchy snacks have cheese cream inside. It smells totally  like tomato and cheese pizza,but easier to eat and slip into your bag than an oily slice of pizza. It says it all! Liked!

    BloominOnion  Snacks – Tohato introduced an American dish,blooming on,to their snack list. This is #yummers! Though it has similar taste with any onion snacks out there still have a distinct taste. We love it! 

     Puchi -Apple Calvados Cake – Bite-sized apple cakes,flavored with Calvados,apple brandy from France .  This you guys is a perfect match for a coffee or a tea. Super fave! 

    Final thoughts:

    I can definitely  see myself ordering from Zenpopjapan again. I might try their ramen pack and stationery pack soon  and I will keep you guys posted! And it’s a perfect gift for the holidays. Trust me! You’re friends, family or whoever the gift receiver is will go cray cray with these snack box!
