February 2018 Bakers Krate Review

February 2018 Bakers Krate Review 1

Today I have an exciting and extra-sweet post for you featuring the February Bakers Krate*.

If you are unfamiliar with Bakers Krate, it’s a subscription box that sends its members hand-crafted gourmet baked goods produced by Canadian experts. The Bakers Krate team searches for Canada’s best desserts to satisfy your sweet tooth so that you can enjoy local tastes and delicacies in the comfort of your own home. Each box contains fresh baked goods such as cake pops, pie jars, cookies, dessert squares, and more made by Canadian artisans. Each item in the box is packaged well to guarantee freshness.

Subscriptions are $19.99 per month plus $9.99 shipping across Canada. You can save a bit each month by signing up for a three month or a six month plan. You can also send Bakers Krate as a gift and include a sweet, personalized message for the receiver. I have used the gift option for special holidays, birthdays, and for friends who are living away from home. After all, there’s no better cure for missing home than a surprise box of delicious gourmet treats.

The February box is pretty in pink for Valentine’s Day! It also comes with two information cards. One card includes a Dessert Menu with a description of each product as well as an Ingredients List an an expiry date for each dessert. The other card provides interesting background information on the bakeries that created the desserts. Bakeries that contributed to this month’s box are all based in Ontario.

NOTD: Essie Turn 'N' Pose (Gel Couture)

Essie Turn  n pose Gel Couture Review

Today’s NOTD is a little different from my usual posts since the featured polish is not grey or pastel pink. I was in the mood for darker polishes this winter, and Turn ’N’ Pose from Essie’s Gel Couture line has been one of my go-to shades this season.

February 2018 Little Life Box Review

February 2018 Little Life Box Review 1

We are entering the third month of 2018, and I’m proud to say that I’m still following the healthy habits that I planned to adopt at the beginning of the year. One of my goals is to replace unhealthy, processed snacks with more natural, healthier options. This is not always easy during the busy work week when it’s hard to find time time to go to the grocery store or prepare snacks in advance, but luckily there's a subscription that can help: Little Life Box.
