Japan Funbox Review

I was given the opportunity to review a new Japanese Candy & Snack Box, Japan Funbox, and I jumped at the chance! I absolutely love trying new Japanese candy and find myself perusing all the snack foods when I head to grocery stores that carry it.

Now onto the unboxing...

I received the 'Mini' box which contained:
  • Crunky Chocolate Bar
  • Whistle Candy: Grape Flavour
  • Potato Happy Butter
  • Pokemon 3D Candy
  • Umaibō: Curry, Cheese, and Octopus Dumpling flavours
  • Strange Gum 2

Pokemon 3D Candy

These candies were pretty generic - a hard candy with a bit of sour fizz in the middle. The sour fizz seems to be a common addition to a lot of Japanese candies. But with them being individually wrapped, they're great to throw in my purse and have on hand whenever I want a little bit of sweetness.

Strange Gum 2

The sticks of gum were incredibly soft and flavourful. The flavours are lemon, strawberry, and green apple. It claims that when you combine all 3 flavours it turns into grape flavour. It did, but the grape wasn't very strong in flavour. I'd prefer the gum flavours on their own.

Whistle Candy: Grape Flavour

Now these candies were super grape tasting. I really liked their chalky texture and they disappeared quickly. You can definitely make a whistle noise when you blow into the little hole, which intrigued my cats. And my little secret toy? A tiny plastic monster for my shelf.

Crunky Chocolate Bar

This chocolate bar was a mix of an Aero and Crunchy bar. It was melt in your mouth light, but it had little crisp pieces throughout. All in all, a good tasting chocolate treat.

Potato Happy Butter

The flavour of these chips had me intrigued. The 4 base flavours of these chips: butter, honey, parsley, and mascarpone cheese. Weird, right? They're actually incredibly good. A little sweet, a little buttery. I enjoyed them thoroughly.

Umaibō: Curry, Cheese, and Octopus Dumpling flavours

I liked these little savoury sticks. The texture was incredibly similar to a classic Cheetos Puff. Crispy but soft and melt in your mouth. The flavours were fun and I enjoyed all 3. 

I loved reviewing the Mini Funbox and I couldn't recommend this subscription box more. The shipping was incredibly fast, oh and did I mention shipping is free worldwide?! They offer a Mini, Original, and Family size funbox so you can decide how many snacks you'd like to try out.

Definitely check out Japan Funbox if you're thinking about trying out a Japanese Candy and Snack box subscription.

My Favourite Baby Must-Haves

Having my first child has been eye-opening. I've learnt so much and made so many mistakes. It becomes a guessing game of what your child needs at times. You want to be 'perfect' but the reality is we're all just winging it and doing the best we can. Sometimes that means spending hours on Google, texting every 'mom' friend you have, or on hold with poison control because your baby licked eczema cream off your finger when you were putting it on her cheeks (or trying to).

With Christmas around the corner, I thought I'd share the top baby items that have saved us over and over again. They would be perfect gift ideas for new parents-to-be or stocking stuffers for infants.

1. Swaddle blankets - even if your child doesn't like to be swaddled these blankets are amazing. They're extra large and made from a breathable cotton. They were perfect for the spring and summer to bring with us on walks. If there was a cool breeze, too much sun, or Emma was upset, hav…

New Mom Must-Haves

It's been just over 9 months since Emma entered this world. It's been crazy. So many ups and downs. But I wouldn't trade this experience in for anything. She's amazing. It's definitely a learning experience and I wouldn't have gotten through the last 9 months without the support I've had. My family and friends have been welcome resources to help me in this new chapter of my life.

Emma has been a great baby - she sleeps well, she eats well, she's overall content and happy. We haven't experienced many problems. But that doesn't mean every day has been easy. Some days I don't get the chance to shower between Emma, chores, and just trying to eat; other days, naps are on schedule, feedings run smooth, and I have the opportunity to not only shower, but write up a blog post or bake cookies.

Since it's the time of year when people are out buying gifts, I thought I'd share the top must-haves I've needed over the last 9 months. They would …

New Beginning

It's a new year which always feels like a new beginning to me; a fresh start. I've never been one to hold myself all that accountable for new year resolutions. I wrote down a few goals I'd like to work on this year, but honestly, the only things that matter to me this year are making memories and doing what makes me happy.

We have some fun plans this year, some set in stone and others that we need to finalize. Emma will be walking this year and she's already proved 2019 to be interesting since she's now crawling and trying to stand up. I can only imagine how many new adventures we'll encounter this year with her.

I've also found new inspiration in my creative life - artists, creators, crafts, fabric. So many things have sparked new motivation in me. I haven't felt that in a while to be honest. It's nice. It's nice to feel these things again which make me want to spend time in my craft room or sit at my laptop and write .

My first step in my newf…
