While cathing up on season three of Orange Is The New Black and painting my nails, I decided to finally open the growler of Harpoon Vanilla Porter my boyfriend brought me back from Boston in April. Surprisingly it still had carbonation.
Appearance: dark brown, lasting off white head
Aroma: dark chocolate, vanilla bean, slightly roasty
Taste: follows smell, good amount of chocolate and vanilla, slightly sweet
Feel: slick, moderate carbonation
Overall: I really enjoyed this beer. It’s not the best vanilla porter I’ve had, but it’s definitely up there for me. I want to visit the brewery and try this fresh.
Jason was in a beer mood and opened a Best Damn Cherry Cola. He took one sip and pawned it off on me.
Appearance: drank from the bottle
Aroma: cherry Mr. Sketch scented marker
Taste: follows smell with artificial sugar and cough medicine aftertaste
Feel: light body, moderate carbonation
Overall: I really think that Best Damn Brewing Co. needs to change their name. I’ve tried two of their products now and they were both terrible.

After a slow night at work, a couple of my co-workers and I decided to hang around for a drink or two. Jason concocted this White Peach Sangria with some sort of white wine, peach schnapps, and pineapple juice. I’m not a fan of peach anything, but this was pretty tasty.
Still in the mood for something sweet, I ordered a Malibu Bay Breeze. It’s made with Malibu coconut rum, cranberry juice, and pineapple juice. I am a lover of simple fruity drinks.
I really enjoyed the May Benevolent Beauty Box. This is only the second box they’ve released and both months have had an amazing selection of products. If you’re not already subscribing to this box, you’re missing out. This month’s box is valued at $142.
Another month, another box. To be honest, I really thought I was going to be very unhappy with the products when I opened this month’s Petit Vour beauty box. I was pleasantly surprised that I was wrong, especially because this month marked the company’s third anniversary!
