About 2 or 3 weeks ago I decided to go with my family to the GF&AF EXPO which is short for gluten free and allergen friendly event. The event I believe was for 2 days. The expo was pretty big. They had a lot of vendors, so were able to try out new brands that we never heard of. Most of the vendors let you try out the product and some of the vendors even had giveaways. This is the first time that we attended an event like this one and I am glad that we did end up going because we had a nice time. I believe tickets were only $15.00 for adults and I want to say $7.00 or $8.00 for kids (I can't really remember for sure the price but I believe it was around that amount). So not too bad for the tickets. 

They had the big GF&AFEXPO board so you were able to take a picture with that background if you wanted to. 

This is when we first walked into the expo. The place was a nice size. And a lot of vendors were there. 

With each adult ticket you get a bag with some samples inside. So they gave you the bag as soon as you got inside the expo. So both my husband and I received a bag each. These bags also came in handy because we were able to put all the samples that we received inside.

These were the samples that came inside the bags. There was some bread, some crackers, popcorn and also a coupon for a free pint of ice-cream.

These are all the items that we received in the event. They have us some chips, some pasta, some rice and a bunch of snacks.

PLAY! BY SEPHORA is a monthly beauty/makeup subscription box that is $10.00 a month. Each month you will get a PLAY! Book that has tips and tricks inside, a PLAY! Pass that you can take to your Sephora store so you can get advice on how to use the products int that month's box and in the box you will also receive six samples.

Every month they have a different design on the bag. 

Everything inside the bag.

ATELIER COLOGNE Sud Magnolia. I mentioned this in my past reviews but I am not a big perfume person but I did enjoy the scent of this one. This subscription does always come with a perfume sample inside.

SEPHORA COLLECTION Rouge Shine Lipstick in Love Spell. Such a cute name Love Spell. I like that they included something from the sephora collection in the bag. This is such a pretty pink color. Its not a very strong color which I also like and I'm sure many people will use such a color.

LIVING PROOF Perfect Hair Day Night Cap Overnight Perfector. I haven't had a chance to try this out yet but on the information card it says that you can get a full week of softness and shine with this long lasting, weightless perfecting solution that keeps your hair looking its best.

ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Brow Gel. This is a clear brow gel. This gel keeps your brows in place the whole day.

KAT VON D Tattoo Liner in Trooper. Again this is a product that I have not tried out yet, but I have heard many great reviews on it. This is a waterproof brush-tip liquid liner that glides on.

OLE HENRIKSEN Sheer Transformation. This moisturizer is very silky and feels great on my skin. It is also oil-free which is good for my skin.

Overall: I thought this had a nice mixture of products. I wouldn't mind if they stopped sending perfume samples and replace them with something else but I did enjoy this box.

September 2016 SnackSack

This is the September Snacksack. 

All the goodies in the box.

TASTY BRAND Vanilla Cookies. These were pretty good. They had a nice crunch to them also. 

LUNA Chocolate Peanut Butter Mini Bar. They included 3 of these mini bars in the box. When I saw these in the box I thought yum chocolate and peanut butter but honestly I thought they were just ok, I still have one more to eat. Its nice though that these bars have a lot of protein in them. 

SKOUT Almond Blueberry Trail Bar. This bar on the other hand was a lot better. I enjoyed the blueberry flavor in this one.

HIPPEAS Chickpea Puffs. I enjoyed these a lot. They are organic and also vegan. I would love to try out different flavors of these. 

MRS. THINSTER'S Chocolate Chip Cookie Thins. I've had these before and was happy to see them in the box. These are super tasty.

FRU-LICIOUS Fruit Ice Pops. I've tried this brand before from a subscription box (I'm not sure if it was a different snack sack or it was just a different subscription). They are tasty and great for a nice hot sunny day.

CRUNCHY ROB'S BRAND Pineapple Habanero Popcorn. This was another great snack. At first I really didn't want to try them because I thought they were going to be very spicy because of the habanero but they had the right amount of heat in them. The pineapple flavor was very good.

KATE'S REAL FOOD Grizzly Bites. These were super tasty. I loved the flavors of peanut butter and dark chocolate together.

VINTAGE ITALIA Veggie Pasta Chips. Again I wasn't so sure about these at first but they were really good. If I saw these in the store I would pick them up. 

EVERLY Peach Mango Drink Mix. I haven't tried these out yet. But I'm sure the peach/mango combination would make my water very flavorful and good. 

BISCOTTEA Teatime Shortbread. These were super yummy. I would have liked to receive 3 packets of these in the box instead of the luna mini bars.

Overall: The value wasn't really there but I was able to try out brands that I probably wouldn't try if it wasn't for the box. So I guess it was an ok box for me.

September 2016 Glossy Box

I know this is a little late but I would like to show you guys what came in the September Glossy Box. 

This was the picture on the box. 

How pretty is the inside of the lid.

All the items in the box.

KORRES MODERN GREEK APOTHECARY Twist Lipstick. Korres modern greek apothecary replaces synthetics with natural ingredients that are actually beneficial to the skin. This lipstick has a little shine to it which is nice. The color is also very pretty.

VINCE CAMUTO Capri Eau De Parfum.  I'm not a huge perfume person but this does has a nice scent to it. On the information card it says, A floral bouquet of peach blossom and violet notes combine with a citrus blend.

SESDERMA C-Vit Moisturizing Serum. Unfortunately I was not able to try this out because my bottle came basically empty as you can see from the picture below.

MODELLPUNCHER Brow Duo Pencil. I found that this pencil was very hard to notice any color at all. I don't think this was the best product in the box.

SALLY HERSHBERGER 24K Supreme Stylist Dry Shampoo. I know a lot of people don't enjoy getting dry shampoo's in the boxes but I don't mind at all. I always end up using them and its nice to try out new ones every now and then. This one was pretty good. It also gave my hair nice volume.

SESDERMA Sensyses Cleanser. This cleanser worked just like its supposed to work. It also had a nice scent to it.

Overall: This was not a great box for me. One item came almost empty and the brow pencil didn't really give much color. The other items were great but I would have loved to try out the serum. I don't think I will continue to get this box.

This was a one time purchase box for popsugar must have and is limited edition. 

First look inside the box.

Each item came individually wrapped in tissue paper.

Everything in the box.

BUJI BAJA - With Love From Eurostar. Lavender Rib Scarf. The retail value is $70.00. This is of course perfect for fall. The color is such a pretty soft lavender color.  Its very soft which is nice but honestly I wasn't so happy to see this in the box since I already have so many scarves.

CAEDEN. Linea N1 Faceted Ceramic & Rose Gold Headphones. The retail value is $149.99. These are really nice and I don't have any headphones like them but it would have been nice if they were wireless.

 JACK & LUCY. Faux Fur Pom Keychain. The retail value is $41.00. I know that pom pom's are in but I feel like this item is just a little overpriced. I do like the the color of this keychain though. Perfect for fall.

THRIVE CAUSEMETICS. Triple Threat Color Stick in "Joy". The retail value is $36.00. I haven't been able to try this out yet but it does say on the information card that this stick brings out intense color for your cheeks and lips. This looks like a great product. I love how its both for your cheeks and your lips also. 

LANCER SKINCARE. Dani Glowing Skin Perfector. The retail value is 95.00. Again this is another product that I have not been able to try out, but its supposed to enhance your skin's natural radiance, blur pore visibility, and boost your skin's firmness. 

SLOANE STATIONERY. Great Thoughts Notepad. The retail value is $52.00. This notepad is a little on the pricy side but it is produced using the traditional craft of bookbinding.

Popsugar Must Have is a monthly lifestyle subscription box for women. Each month they send out products from beauty, fitness, food etc... The cost of the box is $39.95 per month.

First look inside the box. 

All the products in the box.

JACK & LUCY: Bicoastal Wide Brim Hat. Suggested Retail is $58.00. I'm not so sure about this hat. Some people like hats and then some do not. I'm one that doesn't really like hats but I guess I have to try it out and see how I feel about it. On the information card it says to pair this hat with oversize sunglasses.

The hat is also adjustable which is pretty cool I think. It has two strings on the inside of the hat as you can see below, so all you have to do is pull the strings and adjust the hat to the size you need.

THE GLUTEN FREE BITES: Dark Chocolate Coconut Bites. Suggested Retail is $4.99. These bites are vegan and gluten-free. They are made without GMOs or dairy. I thought these were just ok. Not anything I would purchase if I saw them in the store. My husband also tried them and he didn't like them at all.

BRIOGEO: Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask. Suggested Retail is $36.00. This hair mask is supposed to reduce breakage and restore natural vibrancy on even the most overprocessed hair.

FLINT: Lint Roller. Suggested Retail is $9.99. I was happy to see this in the box. I've never seen a lint roller like this one. It's pretty cool. I love the style of this one. It comes with 30 sheets but once you finish it you can refill it. This is a great product just to have in your bag or to keep in the car.

NCLA: MANI-ER Tool Kit. Suggested Retail is $16.00. This is another product that I am happy to see in the box. Its a mini manicure set. And again you can put this one in your bag also if you want.

Thats the inside and everything that came inside.

SMITH & CULT: Lip Lacquer in The Warning. Suggested Retail is $22.00. This is a pretty red color but not for me, so I'm sure I will give this away. I'm not sure if the top of this lip lacquer is supposed to have a dent of some sort or not, but mine has a dent and i'm not really sure how it even has a dent because the box was in perfect condition that's why I'm not sure if its supposed to be like that or not.

Overall this was a pretty good box. Not the best popsugar must have box that I have received in the past but its ok. I will use most of the items so thats fine.
