Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we are going to talk about an AMAZING new product that y’all will be obsessed with this holiday season. Once the holiday season begins we are bombarded with delicious food, but after a while you might feel that you’re growing tired of the same types of food. I was recently given the incredible opportunity to review a new spice subscription service called RawSpiceBar. RawSpiceBar is a service that sends you 3 regional species every month, includes recipes of dishes (which feed 4-6 people) that you can use each of the spices in, and tells you a brief history of the region that the spices originate from, all for a mere $6 per month (you can also get a prepaid subscription for 6 months for $36 or 1 year for $66 which means that with this option you get 1 month free, gotta love that!). The spices are all really awesome and the dishes that you can make with them are super delicious. If you love to cook new and exotic dishes, or if you just want to spice up your holiday menu this year then you NEED to subscribe to RawSpiceBar. Now I know that you want to hurry up and subscribe to RawSpiceBar, but if you want to learn even more about these awesome spices then please keep reading! Full disclosure, I did receive these spices from the company to review for free, however this did not affect my opinion of the product itself. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!
The spices that I will be reviewing today were from the features spices for the month of November, and were for Ethiopian dishes. The three spices that I received were Berbere, Ethiopian Mitmita, and Pumpkin Pie Spice. Berbere is spicy and smoky addition that really gives the food a rich flavor. Personally I am a huge fan of spicy food, so this is now one of my favorite spices. You can use this spice with various soups, meats, poultry, as a rub on roast chicken or vegetables, and stirred into oil and vinegar as an awesome new dip, so the possibilities for delicious new dishes with these spice are endless. Don’t worry if you’re not a big fan of spicy food, because Berbere is a little spicy, but not unbearable, and definitely brings out the flavor of the dish in a new and exciting way. Next up we have the Ethiopian Mitmita spice! Now this is a very hot and spicy addition to any dish, that will definitely require you to have a drink nearby. Although this spice is seriously hot, it really makes a great addition to any meat stews, grilled meats, or as a replacement for hot sauce. Like I’ve previously said, the Ethiopian Mitmita spice is really hot, but I would give it a try because you seriously have never had flavor explode onto your taste buds like this before. Lastly we’re going to talk about the Pumpkin Pie Spice. Now I know what you’re thinking how different can this Pumpkin Pie Spice be from every other Pumpkin Pie Spiced food I’m eating/drinking during this time of the year. well trust me when I say that you have NEVER had Pumpkin Pie Spice that was this good! The cinnamon in it will seriously make you feel like baking dozens of cookies, and the blend is sweet but not overly sweet so it’s perfect for coffee, tea, or any baked good you can think of. If you want to kick off the holiday season right, this is the spice to get you in the perfect mood.
To wrap everything up, all of these spices were seriously great and I give them all 5 smiley faces (because you know smiley faces are more fun than stars). If the spices for November were so amazing, I can’t wait to see what the next featured spices will be! If you want a unique culinary experience every month than this subscription is a must have for you, and it also makes a great gift for any chefs in the family. I never promote any products that I don’t follow believe in so trust me when I say that $6 a month is a small price to pay for these incredible spices. So subscribe to RawSpiceBar today and get ready to have all the bragging rights at any holiday party this year!

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’, we are going to discuss everyone’s FAVORITE part of coming into a new season…NEW FASHION!!! Since today is officially the first day of fall (aka when you can officially start binging on pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks), I thought that this was the perfect opportunity to do a ‘fall fashions’ blog post. Now I know that weather conditions vary depending on where you live, so I’m going to try to show y’all outfits that will keep you toasty, but aren’t boiling hot (you can alter it depending on what the weather is like in your neighborhood). I also tried to make these outfits school/parent approved. Hope y’all enjoy!
While I hope y’all enjoyed the looks! Remember that if it’s colder where you live then you can always add a cardigan or jacket, and if it’s hotter, you can substitute shorts or tank tops/short sleeved shirts. Have a fun fall people of the internet!!!
Hello people of the internet!!! This fall has brought many old styles back, such as varsity jackets, leggings, and infinity scarves however; many new styles are being ushered in. so what should you have in your closet this fall? One word….Camouflage. This style is found EVERYWHERE, from leggings, shoes, pants, to Inocencia coats and jackets, and even baby clothes. With camouflage, everyone can be fashionable this fall! (Ahhh!).
One reason why I really enjoy this trend, is its’ versatility. You can wear a simple camouflage button up as a stylish way to stay toasty on those brisk fall nights (or days). You can also achieve a simple yet comfortable edgy style by wearing a camouflage pant or legging with studded combat boats(also hot this fall). This style trend is defiantly one to invest in because admit it, when style meets comfort, everyone wins. Even your favorite furry friend can strut to the dog park in style! (I’m serious, they actually have camouflage jackets for dogs!…yup this idea definitely gets four paws up). Stay trendy my friends!
