I received my third Stitch Fix yesterday after being inspired to try it again by reading everyone’s great reviews recently. Especially since many people said their third fix was their favorite. I on the other hand liked this fix no more than the others. The idea of Stitch Fix is really fun and I want enjoy my experiences, but so far it’s just been okay. The first two fixes I kept just one item each that I really enjoyed, but would’ve kept more if the other items were in my price range. This time the prices are better but not the items. I did end up keeping one top this time to justify the $20 styling fee I had already paid upfront. It wasn’t a top I would’ve normally picked up, but I will wear it.

I will try it again but am going to wait a little while. In the meantime, I made myself this milkshake to lift my spirits. I appreciate nuts in my ice cream, but this is the first time I’ve had them mixed into a milkshake and it was just as wonderful. The drizzle of honey around the inside of the rim makes for a creative presentation.

As a side note, it’s an interesting thing that the same blender I use to make green monster smoothies nearly every morning was used to make this oh-so-not-healthy beverage. Apparently my blender needs some fat in it every now and then, just like my belly!
