Degustabox September 2017


Autumn (or Fall) arrived, warmer than I felt but actually thinking about global warming and so  won’t rejoice at that. I do believe that seasons are changing for worse as a result of everyone not respecting Earth…

But to “cure my nerves” regarding that, my awesome box from Degustabox was delivered filled with home goodies to try, and others that I missed eating or drinking them.
