I realized I didn’t write a recap for last last week. Whoops. I don’t know how the hell I just lost track of days like that.
Today I’m a bit tired of being an adult who has to pay bills. Even though I’ve been paying bills since I was 17. Ugh.
I can’t even really seem to remember how this week went.
According to the pictures it was actually kind of busy!
Spring is one of my favorite times of the year — besides Fall.
I’m such a sucker for all the pretty shades of pink and all the pastel’s and greens. And oh! Easter! Easter candy, Easter decor, Easter vibes… my birthday sometime’s falls on Easter and I use to hate it cause everything is closed that day so I didn’t really get to go celebrate but it hasn’t landed on Easter in a really long while (though I do worry every year lol) so it’s all good lol!
There are two times a year I look forward to Williams Sonoma seasonal candy and that’s for Easter when they come out with these delicious sour bunnies I’ve grabbed every year since 2011 (pink is grapefruit, green is key lime and yellow is lemon — tbh I only like the green ones) and Halloween when they release the sour pumpkins (which I think overall are orange flavored).
Welp, I got most of the cleaning done this week that I was aiming for. There’s still some stuff left to do but the desk, kitchen and my bookshelves are done. Granted I want to move around some more stuff around my desk but I just don’t know what or to where. So for now, it’s done.
Buuuut I gotta wait until next week to get my desktop. So, whomp.
I literally thought these were jelly beans when I picked them up… even though they’re MUCH bigger than your average jelly bean and they’re heart shaped.
The thing that got me was that they’re made with REAL Cherry Juice! Also I’m a sucker for basically anything cherry flavored.
There’s a ton of different flavors listed on the back and it’s sort of hard to tell which is which because at least 3 of them look exactly the same!
I know for a fact I’ve had Cherry Vanilla, Cherry Cola, Chocolate Cherry, and Wild Cherry. It does have the tart flavor of what real cherry juice would taste like and some of them have distinct tastes but the 3 plain reds that look alike sort of start to blend in together. Chocolate Cherry is not good at all. I don’t know how to explain it besides not good lol. Cherry Cola is probably my favorite one of the ones I’ve tried so far. Hunting down the other flavors is kind of hard because they start to all blend in together after awhile.
This was a fun thing to try and it does taste good but I’m not like in love with it or anything which I thought I would be!
Also, I sort of wish I had painted my nails prior to taking these photos lol, oh well!
What’s your favorite Valentine’s Day candy?
It’s been a really long time since I’ve had a See’s Candies near me, first of all.
There wasn’t any actually in Florida unless you count the pop up shops/kiosks that would come around but just during the holiday season. And as someone who grew up in California well it was kinda depressing. See’s has always kinda been my chocolate of choice. I mean I like Godiva but I’ve GROWN UP with See’s. So when they release their holiday truffles it was kinda sad I wasn’t able to try them, though sometimes I’d ask my mom to get me some and ship them to me.
This year they came out with 3 truffles… well 2 1/2 is more like it I guess.
I literally thought both the white and dark chocolate were strawberry filled, I guess I got too excited and misread… whoops. They also came out with the Black Forest truffle. I ended up grabbing all 3.
After realizing that the dark chocolate was indeed NOT strawberry filled I decided to just pop the whole thing in my mouth, sorry. But the chocolate was fluffy and creamy. It wasn’t overly sweet and the dark chocolate wasn’t at all bitter, it was perfect and comforting!
The strawberry white chocolate was pretty good; it was smooth and creamy and the strawberry flavor was definitely there. It paired so nicely with the white chocolate too! The only thing is I felt there was too much white chocolate, if you know what I mean. While the flavors both worked nicely together I could had used a bit more strawberry filling!
The Black Forest truffle was MY FAVORITE (I’m not sure seeing the inside really does anything but it makes for nice photos, right?)! It’s described as dark chocolate with tart cherries and that’s EXACTLY what it was! If you’re a fan of dark chocolate and cherries I would HIGHLY recommend this!
I’m so tempted to go back and get a whole box of these. They kind of remind me of those holiday cherry chocolates you know with the cream or the clear liquid in the middle BUT BETTER.
I’m obviously really excited about this truffle.
I’m also really excited to try the Easter truffles they come out with every year, there’s usually a lemon one that’s really good.
What’s your favorite chocolate shop between Godiva and See’s or is there another one you prefer?
One month down… did I accomplish all that I wanted this month? Sorta.
I’m starting to get the hang of things and getting back into the swing of things which regardless of what I did and didn’t get done is still a huge step for me, I’m starting to feel a little less overwhelmed with the idea of updating several instagrams and blogs and slowly, SLOWLY, I’m starting to feel like the old me. I also managed to read the 3 books I needed to read within the month to stay on track with my Goodreads goal. Which is great.
