Lets get started !

– Choco Choco –

A delicious double dose of semi-sweet and rich dark chocolate with premium peanut butter and wild honey. Natural peanuts, premium dark chocolate, & honey to enhance the flavor.
label_choco

A classic pairing, chocolate & peanut butter. It reminds me of a reese’s cup… yummy! This one had a thicker & chunkier texture to it. I spread some of this delicious peanut butter over some apple slices. One of my go afternoon or evening snacks. This would be good on pretzels, rice cakes, or off the spoon!

– Coco Bananas –

A tropical blend of yummy bananas, cocoa and wild honey. Peanuts, a mix of natural banana flavor, real chunks of semi sweet chocolate , & MELO-O honey.
label_nana-pbcrave

I like having peanut butter with bananas , so was interested to see what this would taste like. Sometimes banana flavoring could be bad or good . It definitely was like I was eating a fresh banana with peanut butter. What did I make with this flavor? I made oatmeal by mixing in some Coco Bananas PB Crave & topped if off with some chia seeds & sliced banana.

– Cookie Nookie –

A mouth-watering mix of chocolate chips, cookie dough flavor, wild honey and premium peanut butter — it’s two classics together as one. Farm fresh peanuts, natural cookie flavoring, & chunks of real milk chocolate, with a dash of MELO-O honey.

label_cookie_pbcrave

I saved this one for last because cookie nookie just sounded like it would be the “save the best for last”. It is one of their most popular flavors. How can you go wrong with cookies & peanut butter? While mixing I got a whiff of peanut butter and vanilla ( the vanilla smell you get when you mix cookies) . It had a medium texture but still easy to spread. I was right this one was dangerously good. I ended up making an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie smoothie.

– Razzle Dazzle –

A twisted blend of red raspberry, wild honey, cool white chocolate and rich dreamy darkness .
Fresh peanuts, natural raspberry flavoring, a mix of semi-sweet & white chocolate, a touch of MELO-O honey.
label_razzle dazzle_pbcrave

I love raspberries & right when I opened the container I smelled it right away. I like the mixture of white & dark chocolate. This one had a thinner consistency than the rest. This would be perfect on bagels, waggles, pancakes, or toast. How did I use it? I toasted up a whole wheat bagel thin, spread some PB Crave Razzle Dazzle, topped it with sliced banana, & spinkled some chia seeds on top.

IMG_9785.JPG

I was drawn to the color ‘same mistakes’. I actually wore this the when I went dancing. The color stayed on all night.
I applied ‘Same Mistakes’ from the middle to outer part of my lid. Then applied ‘Tell Me a Lie‘ on the inner part of my lid. I also put a dab of ‘Nobody Comapares‘ (silver) on the inner corner of my eye. I like doing this to open up my eye up more and brighten .

IMG_9771.JPG

IMG_9781.JPG

I wanted to do a darker eye next
Here I used ‘Summer Love’ along my whole lid and a little under my lower lashes on the outer corner. I then applied ‘Same Mistakes‘ from the middle to outer corner of lid. Then ‘Nobody Compares‘ on the inner corner of eye to brighten and make eyes pop. I also lined my upper lid with I Want eye liner.

In the first photo I’m wearing Irresistible lip gloss.
Great color!
I then tried Loved You First in the second. Looking at it it’s like bubble gum pink so I was unsure but once I put it on , I loved it. So fun!

IMG_9795.JPG

The other 2 glosses have a nice pearly tone to them.

Nail polishes
I really liked these colors , great for the holiday season.

IMG_9804.JPG

Stole my heart – magenta pink
Alive – multi colored glitter

Final thoughts
I really liked this kit. The colors are great; fun, bold, colorful. I like that it has a variety of make up and polish.
The eye shadow stays on , even dancing the night away. The glosses go on smooth and felt nice on my lips. I also like that you can keep the tins after your makeup is gone. Maybe keep One Direction ticket stubs and photos or put other make up in there. The only con I have is it’s a little hard to get the make up applicator, lip top coat, eye liner and nail polishes out.
If you have a One Direction fan in your life, this would be the perfect gift.

IMG_9580-2.JPG

For me using these, the bottle shape was weird when applying . I needed 2 coats for Moments and 3 for Happily. I did like the end result though . I wish they had a brush for the glitter.

Electroglam Mascara

FOR LASHES- Make a subtle statement by adding a pop of colour to the tips of your lashes, or add coats to your entire lashes for a shockingly chic look. The more the better!
AS A HAIR MASCARA- Apply to small sections of hair and swipe through for instant ELECTRIC highlights.

Why don’t we go there- Shock of blue
Does he know?- Pinkest hot pink
Story of my life- Amped canary yellow

IMG_9597-2.JPG
I kinda like it as a mascara. Gives a nice pop of color.

IMG_9598-2.JPG
I liked it on my lashes, great for a pop of color. Why don’t we go there- shock of blue is my favorite.
I didn’t like the way it felt on my hair. It didn’t look nice and was stiff. I think it would be better for people with blonde hair . If you do use it on your hair I suggest very small thin pieces .

Liquilights Glow Gloss
Liquilights Glow Gloss sparkles brilliantly during the day and illuminates under UV black light after dark. Enriched with natural oils and vitamin E to keep your lips soft and hydrated all day and all night.
Gloss can be worn alone for a pop of sparkle and color, or paired with One Direction crème lipstick for a bolder look.

Through the Dark- Electric glitter poppy lip gloss that glows to neon red-orange under UV light
Kiss You- Orange glitter rush lip gloss that glows to neon yellow under UV light
Taken – Powerhouse glitter pink lip gloss that glows to neon orange under UV light

IMG_9609.JPG

I really liked the applicator, it was like a little pillow adding color to my lips. These had too much glitter and a little grainy for every day use for me .

Final Thoughts:
I think these kits would be perfect for a younger crowd 10-16 (ish) , maybe even concert goers in their 20s.
I liked the bold and fun colors but I don’t have a need for these products for myself. My cousin who is almost 13 would LOVE these products though. These products would be perfect to wear at a concert since the polish and lip gloss are UV reactive. I went to a glow party and wore “Through the Dark” liquilights lip gloss and it turned orange . Someone thought it was cool and complimented me on it.

IMG_9667.JPG

My favorites are the shock of blue mascara ,Diana nail polish, Through the Dark gloss . With holidays coming up I think this would be a nice gift for a One Direction fan.

Old Factory Candles Review + giveaway! #OldFactory

IMG_9421-0.JPG

I had the opportunity to try out a themed candle set from Old Factory Scented Soy Wax Candles. Each candle set is themed around a group of related fragrances. There are 12 themed scents to choose from that sounded wonderful. I ended up choosing the Happy Holidays themed set. ( Christmas tree, Candy Cane , & Gingerbread)

Image+Description

• These candles are made in the U.S with natural soy wax, pure fragrance oils, and self trimming cotton candle wicks.

•They are great for a gift for someone or yourself. (Male or female)

• Even though they are small they burn for about 20 hours.

• 3, 2oz candles retails for $25

IMG_9550-5.JPG

I love holiday scented candles, which is why I chose the Happy Holiday set.

Christmas Tree: you get that lovely Christmas tree scent without the hassle of having to pick one out and no mess to clean up afterwards. It will definitely get you in the holiday spirit. My friend walked in and was like wow it smells great in here.

Gingerbread : This one smelled like I had gingerbread cookies baking in the oven .

Candy Cane: this one for me was just ok . It had a nice smell but I didn’t really think candy cane.

It didn’t take long for the scents to fill the room . I also didn’t get a headache while burning it for a couple of hours like some candles. Probably because it is made with pure fragrance oils.

They are a bit pricey but are made in the U.S and I like supporting companies that make their products in the U.S
Plus they smell fantastic!

I like the logo it’s simple but to the point .
