Bouchard Chocolate is at Target

 

The holidays are upon us. When I think of the holidays , I think about chocolate.

Bouchard Chocolate recently sent me a box of their Belgian chocolates to try.
They have been perfecting their Belgian chocolate for over 80 years with the art of chocolate making from the historical city of Ghent, Belgium since 1931.

The chocolate is rich, creamy, and indulgent. The outer shell is a little thick but not so thick it is hard to bite into, it melts in your mouth. Once you bite into it you get into one of the creamy centers which is smooth, creamy, & delicious.

The chocolate I received in my box had a nice variety of flavors. 9 irresistible chocolates like coconut cream which was fresh coconut ganache covered in white chocolate & toasted coconut flakes.

I loved the heart detail on the raspberry ganache that was enrobed in dark chocolate. The perfect combo.

Creme brulee that was marbled white chocolate surrounding a cream vanilla & caramel brittle filling. Yum!

These boxes are great for hostess gifts, a co-worker , a chocolate lover, teacher, or just for yourself.

You can now buy these at Target:

Bouchard Small Wrapped Ballotin 125g – $5.49
Bouchard Medium Wrapped Ballotin 250g – $9.99

You will be looking for these boxes at Target :

Save money while shopping online

About a week ago I went to Marshall’s for a TJX rewards access event.  P.S if you shop at Home Goods, TJ Maxx , or Marshalls, sign up it’s free.  Every time you shop you will be entered into a sweepstakes, opportunities for giveaways, & special events.

At this event there was coffee, donuts, a chance to win a gift card ( I won $20!) , & free holiday wrapping paper.

I ended up buying this great black jumpsuit. I just tried it on for fun and was surprised it was the right length as well as fit in the right places. Being tall anything one piece is usually a miss.

I also found this Tommy Hilfiger coat which I really liked. It was warm, sleeves were long, coat was a great length, & the hood looked good and fit right. I feel like its going to be a very cold winter so I needed something to keep me warm.

I wanted to wait because I was very close on one of my survey sites to cash out , and one of the option was a Marshalls gift card. Well it didn’t go as planned and I didn’t want to wait. I went back & my size was gone!! Oh no. I was pretty bummed because I haven’t been this happy to find a coat in awhile.

I did take a photo of the tag when I was at the store the first time . I googled it and guess what? It was at Macy’s for the same price! YAY

My deal ended up being WAY better too.

Coat $79.99 ( $85.07 with tax)

  • Used 3 Macys gift cards ( from survey sites) about $64
  • $5 in plenti points
  • $16.xx on a egift card from a survey site

I paid $0 out of pocket.

Here is where it gets good.

You can find the Tommy Hilfiger coat here

Macy’s had a deal if you spent a certain amount you would get back $10 in Macy’s Money

I used Ebates & received $9.60 back

There was also a deal on plenti if you spent $50 you would get back $10 plenti points

I ended up getting $29.68 back with different sites!

Ebates is great and I highly recommend adding the Ebates cash back button to your browser. That way you are reminded to use it. I would always forget, ever since I added the button I never forget.

If you use my link >> EBATES you will get back $10 on a qualifying purchase of $25 or more. Which can easily be done with holiday shopping.

I also suggest signing up for honey . If you want to save a little more money and/or you’re tired of looking for promo & coupon codes this site does it all for you.

Hydrate & Depuff with these eye patches – mini review

It’s been awhile since I posted. Sorry about that 🙂 I am active on instagram if you want to see what I’m buying & using, making, ect.

I tried some eye masks recently and wanted to share what I thought.

I really like these Nugg eye masks. The results made me look more refreshed and awake. I highly recommend trying these.

They come with  gel & eye pads. I put the gel in the fridge while I was in the shower and when I got out it was nice and cool. I liked that they come separate.

These are easy to use. Open the pack and just place them under your eyes. They were comfortable on for the 10 minutes. The results were ok , my under eye area did feel really soft & hydrated.

These were my second favorite from the 3. These are clear jelly type patches. The felt really nice on; cooling, refreshing, & comfortable. My eyes weren’t really puffy but my under eye area was really soft, hydrated and I looked more refreshed. I’d try these out again.

Do you have a favorite eye cream or eye patch for hydration or puffiness? 

When do you use them? I usually put them on after I get out of the shower and wait to 10-15 minutes while I’m getting ready or eating.
