I Always Ask Myself If I’m Going to Cancel This – Allure

I literally have the worst luck with the Allure Beauty Box.

I don’t know if it is just me or what, but I never get it in a timely manner or they lose it. This month, both happened! I was tracking my package from the beginning of March and it made progress for a couple of days….then literally for weeks nothing happened again. I am not the type of person to really get mad but I emailed them a couple of days ago like ‘hey, I have no idea what happened to my box’ and they were like ‘yeah, it’s lost – let use send you a new one’……

OK…..so a few days go by and one randomly shows up in my mailbox. This box has some random person’s address on it that was blacked out with a sharpie and my address hand written on it…I don’t know if this is the replacement or my actual box, but here we are.

Let’s open it up!

I like the white bag with the gold! I also like seeing something outside of the bag because that means it is full of goodies.

The booklet is very pretty!

Why do I have the worst luck? Does anyone ever get these where the bag isn’t broken?

First Item: Au Naturale The Anywhere Créme Mulitstick in Grapefruit (Full Size) – $35

This was listed as an Editor’s Pick and has a little blurb that I don’t feel like typing out but basically says this is great when used as a cream blush on your cheeks for a subtle hint of color.

Let me swatch it for you:

The issue I have with this is that I don’t really like metallic or shimmer blushes. I also have never used a cream blush but I might give this a try if I am ever feeling confident in my makeup abilities. I actually wouldn’t mind this as a lip color personally…so that might be the route I will go if I use this. I can’t believe it is so expensive for something I can’t really see myself ever using.

Second Item: Acure Seriously Soothing Night Oil (0.3 oz) – $3.89 ($12.99 for 1oz)

I am not really sure how to add this into a skincare routine. My routine consists of cleanse, tone, serum, and then moisturizer. I don’t know if an oil should be added in at some point or takes the place of the serum. In the meantime, I am going to look that up and then let y’all know. However, if you are more educated than myself, please leave me a comment below!

This comes in a rollerball form which I actually hate. I think it’s weird that the bottle itself didn’t have any branding on it…..I started thinking ‘oh hell, I am putting some random ass stuff on my face and now I will break out’. Funny story: I did end up breaking out after using something in the box…..but since I am stupid and didn’t methodically try out new products one at a time, I have no idea what it was. Anyways, this is an oil with a rollerball. I can’t say much more than that.

Third Item: Mamonde Rose Water Toner (25ml) – $2.30 ($23 for 250 ml)

So in my last Allure box I got an oil to foam cleanser that I am OBSESSED with! This toner is no exception to my new found love for this brand. It has the most beautiful light rose scent and really cleans up the trace amount of makeup left after cleansing. I am definitely going to be purchasing the full version of this after I use up my current toner.

Fourth Item: Biossance Squalance + Vitamin C Rose Oil (4ml) – $9.60 ($72 for 30ml)

Again, I have no idea when to use an oil. This absorbed nicely enough (I didn’t use a serum). I feel so weird trying to review skincare because it really takes a while to see any benefits.

Fifth Item: Amika Velveteen Dream Smoothing Balm (60ml) – $10 per the website ($25 for 200ml per the website)…which is weird because the price shouldn’t be that high if my math is correct…

Um….I love this product…………….I also accidentally didn’t read what this was when I first used it and used it as a lotion……so don’t do that. BUT when you use it in your hair, it makes frizz go away and silky luscious hair appear. I really think I am going to buy a full size of this. I get so nervous trying out hair products because I am afraid it will weigh my hair down (my hair is pretty thin) but this one definitely did not add any extra weight. There isn’t much of a scent which is kind of a bummer but I still love this.

Sixth Item: Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb (10ml) – $7.60 ($38 for 50ml)

The packaging of this is just so adorable. When you put this on your face, it has this great silicone feeling which leaves your skin feeling ahhhh-mazing. It also has some great hydrating power and feels so light. The best thing about this is that you really can cover a large amount of your face with the tinniest amount of product. Even though this is a tiny sample, it will definitely last a while.

Seventh Item: Derma-E Microdermabrasion Scrub – $32.50 for a full size. I don’t know the size of this sample

This is a great little sample of facial scrub. It has the most delicate, fine abrasiveness to it but you know it is gently scraping off the dead skin cells from your face. I love how gentle this product is. If I ever have the desire to purchase a facial scrub, this will definitely be a top contender.

FINAL THOUGHTS

So the total of this box minus the sample of Derma-E comes to $68.39….like….this is the reason I never cancel this. If you consider the price of a regular subscription for this ($15/month) then that is an AMAZING value. I hate that I love this subscription so much but I really love it. Like it has to be true love to put up with the headache.

If you would like to join me in this, I have a referral link which advertises either 2 Sunday Riley samples or a Ouai trio sample. I believe you can even get your box for $10….and if you’re like me and complain because they can be such nightmare to deal with and threaten that you’re going to cancel because your heart can’t handle this heart break month after month……………you can get 4 months for $10/month……….so……..don’t say I didn’t help you out here!

Thanks for reading! Til next time!

I Have the Worst Luck – Glossybox March 2019

There is something about living in Alaska that makes you get everything super late. Take for instance my March 2019….I may have signed up for this super late but it just came today (April 10). I hope you guys haven’t seen too many of these, but if you have, you still might enjoy me being awkward – that’s a treat in itself if you ask me!

Let me go ahead and get into this!

First off, this box is everything. It is so nice and sturdy and I feel like I cannot throw this away. I am going to use this for anything and everything I can cram into it.

The inside is very pretty as well!

There is this random wine card in the box that I won’t be using so whoever wants to use it – go for it!

First Item: Nuria Rescue Rebalancing Cleanser – $26

Designed to relieve and rebalance acne-prone skin, this multi-tasking cleanser uses the gentle astringency of Mandarin Orange extract. Rice water, which is rich in vitamin B and C, is used to promote daily skin firmness. Its the perfect every day, acne or no acne saver that properly maintains and cleanses the skin.

This is a nice, big facial cleaner. There is nothing more exciting than full size products! The wash itself is nice enough – it has a nice bubbly effect on my skin and got rid of the excess oil and makeup. I didn’t notice much of a scent which is great since I cannot stand most scented facial products. I noticed a little bit of drying after using this but I loaded up my face with serum and moisturizer.

Second Item: Manna Kadar Beauty Bloom Volumizing Mascara – $29

A cutting-edge wand captures mascara between each individual groove of the ultra-dense fiber bristles of the Manna Kadar Bloom mascara to give you the fullest, sexiest lashes imaginable.

Holy cow, this packaging is GORGEOUS! I can’t say that I have seen anything shaped like this. The wand is also a strange shape (check out my video to see) so I am not sure how I feel about that.

I was going to add a picture in here but holy hell, my eyebrows are out of control and the dark circles under my eyes are in full force. ANYWAYS, this definitely added some length to my lashes. This didn’t really give me any real volume which is disappointing because I can spend a lot less at Target and get a lot more. The wand is weird as well – let me show you the picture from their site!

Isn’t that strange looking?! It is like a balding little mascara wand BUT it definitely gets to my lashes really well.

Third Item: DWTN PARIS Eau De Teint Highlighter – $25

This lightly powdered cream highlighter offers a texture for easy application and lustrous finish. Extracted benefits from botanicals like the white horehound plats help protect against pollution and the harmful effects of light from scenes. A highlight should always be healthy.

Here is a swatch:

It has a nice bronze shimmer. I just don’t know how I feel about liquid highlight. It definitely brings out my little hand hairs…..which makes me feel like it might bring out the peach fuzz on my face. Don’t worry, I didn’t notice that happening! But, this is not a blinding highlighter by any means. It almost blends into my skin and just barely sparkles. I prefer something much more bold.

Fourth Item: Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Strength + Moisture Leave-In Mask (Sample Size) – $14 (according to the brochure)

Female founded brand Briogeo, brought to you by Nancy Twine, introduces an ingredient conscious brand for all your hair needs. Included in its haircare line is their leave-in hair repair mask that strengthens and conditions. Safe to use for all types o treated hair, it uses a unique micro-encapsulated formula of organ oil which helps restore the hair cuticle. The end result is consistent and manageable hair made with ingredients that are vegan, clean, and cruelty-free.

I. LOVE. THIS. PRODUCT. Like seriously. The smell, the way it makes my hair feel, hell even the packaging. I want to use this in my hair every single day for the rest of forever. It has almost an herbal smell which I am obsessed with. I feel like I want to tell people to smell my hair because I want everyone to experience it. Also, it makes my hair even more silky than I ever imagined it could be. Doesn’t that sound lovely??

Fifth Item: Yensa Tone Up Primer Essential Glow (Sample size) – $15 (according to the brochure) while the full size of 30ml is $35

By infusing super powered-ingredients, this lightweight primer helps smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. It has a satin sheen finish that gives the skin a radiant look and feel. While minimizing the appearance of pores, it also evens skin texture for a flawless appearance.

This is more creamy than most of my other primers – like a lotion. It makes my skin feel smooth and I feel like I noticed some color correction in areas where my face was a little red. I didn’t notice any real change in my pores (I’m starting to give up hope) but it makes a nice enough canvas for adding on my makeup.

Final Thoughts

Here is the final lineup. It looks like there was 3 full sized products and 2 travel sized products. The total value of the box is $109.

If you compare this to BoxyCharm which is the same price and promises over $100 in value as well, then it’s a little frustrating to get some sample products. If you want a mix of skincare, haircare, makeup then this would offset that because BoxyCharm is mostly makeup. I guess it’s a little like comparing apples to oranges, but if we are strictly speaking the size of items for the price, then there should be all full size products.

That being said, I still really love this box. I signed up for a 3 month subscription so I am excited to see what the next months hold. I personally don’t 100% mind that there is a mix of full size and larger samples in this box BUT it might annoy me depending on the quality of the upcoming boxes.

As always, thanks for reading. Til next time!

TheraBox Review and an Embarrassing Moment

I ordered a new box for my blog (shocker) – TheraBox. This is a monthly subscription box that costs $34.99 and promises over $100 in value. I haven’t seen many people unbox this so I am not sure what to expect, but on the website it packs ‘wellness goodies’ to make you feel better about yourself and life in general.

Lord knows I could use that! Let’s open her up.

I love the colors of this box right off the bat! Very floral and spring-ish.

It comes with this lovely little info booklet about the products and other information that is actually really interesting! It also looks like the theme for this box is bloom – how fitting for the beginning of Spring. The first page shows an editor’s note, information on how to get a bonus gift in your next box (leaving review on Facebook, emailing company with your information), how to win a free box, and the rewards you get for referring people.

First Item: Healthy Journey’s Therabox Meditation Bundle (3 Sets) – $34.98

This is listed as “this month’s happiness boosting activity” which is a great self care item to include. It has 3 different sets within the bundle:

For this month’s theme, Bloom, we partnered with Health Journeys and assembled a Therabox Bundle with 3 sets of our favorite meditations and self-hypnosis audios, all with a focus on growth and change to help you bloom into your highest self.

I think this is so amazing that this is included and I can really see myself using this. As someone who suffers from severe anxiety, I struggle very much with how to calm myself. I have been using the Calm App (which you should check out) because there was a 2 month free trial in the Be Kind Box by Ellen which has been invaluable in my self-care journey thus far. This will be a great addition to helping me get through my day-to-day!

I only took a picture of this to show you how adorable it is that they are trying to spread the happiness with every little thing in this box!

Second Item: Avry Beauty Gel-Ohhh Lavender Jelly Spa – $5.95

Caring for our feet has never been this east and satisfying! Experience aromatherapy, heat therapy and ultimate moisturization in the most fun way possible and soak up the Lavender Gel-Ohhh from Avry Beauty! This cruelty-free and paragon-free product is the ultimate indulgence for complete relaxation when it’s time to wind down and turns your water into jelly form!

I am really excited to see a foot product. I really feel like feet are neglected in subscription boxes which is a shame because they go through so much! I guess I really never noticed how awful your feet can become until I moved to the desert and then got pregnant. Like I literally suffered from painful, dry, cracked, swollen feet for 9 months and it was miserable. After I moved to Alaska, I did a foot mask (which is disgustingly satisfying) and have vowed to take care of my feet ever since. This will definitely help me achieve that! I think I might look into buying an actual foot bath though.

Third Item: NCLA Beauty Take it Off Nail Lacquer Remover Sheets – $19

You’ll dare to go bare with this soy-based remover sheet that strengthens as it strips! NCLA’s Take It Off Nail Lacquer Remover Sheets comes with 10 soy-based nail lacquer remover sheets, enough to remove 10 manicures.

I am actually one of the only females I know who don’t paint or otherwise maintain their nails. I think it might be due to the fact I worked in the food industry for a while and wasn’t allowed to have painted nails. Prior to that, I was at the nail salon religiously. This actually makes me want to try to be a little more active in stepping up my nail game and I love that this is nail polish remover in a sheet and not just the typical bottle…..because I am SO bad about leaving the lid off and then spilling nail polish remover everywhere. Maybe this will help me not be a slob.

Fourth Item: The Happy Shoppe Kawii Foldable Note Pad – $5

Release your inner child with these adorable schedule notepads! Featuring spring colors and our favorite furry friends, this desktop swag will delight everyone it comes across.

This is listed as a scheduling notepad which aims to replace typical notepads with a more fun version. I can’t say this is really my style so I am not sure how to review it….I like cats and I like writing things down but this is just not me at all. I appreciate getting something I can throw into my purse or diaper bag but I wouldn’t choose this for myself.

Fifth Item: Taupe Coat Wasabi Nail Polish – $10.99

What’s a spa day without some new decor for your nails? Taupe Coat is a boutique nail polish brand that creates clean, non-toxic nail polish for bold women. Vegan and 10-chemical free, it does not contain the most common carcinogens traditionally found in nail polish, like formaldehyde or parabens.

I think this is really cute to include in the box. I love the color even if it isn’t something I would typically reach for. Like I said earlier in the post, I don’t really paint my nails…but now I might!

Sixth Item: The Farmer’s Touch All Natural Foot Cream – $20

Inspired by a Farmer’s quest to pamper and soother her tired and dry feet after a long farm day’s work, The Farmer’s Touch All Natural Foot Cream was born. Each bath is organic, and made fresh, by hand…even the cocoa butter!

Again, I think foot products are a great addition to the box. I haven’t used this yet because I haven’t had time and I want to use the foot bath product and then use this in order to really get the full spa experience. I am really excited to use it though!

Seventh Item: Organicare Bath and Body Unicorn Body Butter – $11.99

Featuring raw and organic ingredients, this multi-colored, whipped body butter (also smells so delicious, yum!) restores dullness to reveal skin that quite literally gleams and sparkles.

Meh. I have such mixed feelings about this product. I love the way it looks – it instantly brightened my mood! I mean look at it! It looks like the most delicious whipped icing in the world. I also love the scent is so sugary and reminds me of cake. Now, the thing I don’t like is the formula of the ‘butter’ itself. When I imagine a ‘body butter’, I imagine thick and creamy lotion. This is not that.

If you are familiar with using coconut oil type products (maybe all oil based products?) then you’ll understand when I say that this melts in your hand before you apply. This melted beautifully BUT when I went to apply it to my skin, it didn’t really have the movement that I was expecting. It kind of just stayed where it was at so I felt like I ended up using a lot. I really didn’t like that at all – I need something that feels like I’m really slathering it on myself. Throughout the day, however, it did retain moisture which is great. I’m not a fan of this personally but if you like these type products, I would definitely recommend either trying this box or checking out the Etsy shop!

Eight Item: Herbal Transdermal Cell Re-Mineralizing Mud Mask – $20

All natural made with elements of the earth, this gold-infused Cell Re-Mineralizing Mud Mask is a treat for any skin in the need of some TLC!

I got really excited when I saw the word gold-infused. Like all you need to do is throw some gold in a product and I’m down to try it. This is a decent size pot for a clay mask and I think I can get quite a few uses out of it. It does have the citrus flavonoids which they warn may make your skin red for some time after using the mask and mine was certainly red. It didn’t last very long (thankfully) but I don’t really know how I feel about this product. Usually I’m pretty polarized one way or another if I like something or not, especially when it comes to skincare, but this one was a middle ground. I think I would use it if I’ve run out of everything or I’m feeling bored with other products, but I don’t think I would purchase this again.

Ninth Item: Veise Beauty Dream Serum – $38

Free from all questionable shenanigans, this serum illuminates the skin whilst protecting against free radicals in the environment. Originally developed to improve the appearance of hyper pigmentation and scarring, Dream Serum ended up being a magic elixir that gives you the Glow of a Goddess!

I am actually working through a facial serum right now so I am not going to say one way or another if I like this or not….it has crossed my mind to use this on my postpartum stretch marks because they are a nightmare and I hate them. So. I might let y’all know how that goes.

Alright, so there is the TheraBox. I feel like I have mixed feelings about this box. I don’t think it’s for me but I don’t think it is a bad box if you’re into these type of products.

Overall, the value added up to $165.91 which is amazing if you’d purchase these products in your everyday life. They give you facial skin care, body skincare, organization, foot care, and nail care. That is everything you could hope for in a self-care box. The thing for me is that these just aren’t things I would pick out for myself or find myself being particularly drawn to. I guess I am a little too neutral or old-at-heart for this box. I am happy I got to experience though! Now I won’t have FOMO when I see the ads.

In other news, I had an awkward moment today…….let me show you why.

I literally about died. Like the first thing that popped into my mind was:

“OH SHIT, DID I CLICK THE MAN BUTTON FOR MY THREE MONTH SUBSCRIPTION”

The answer is: no. I guess they just ran out of boxes and thought it would be funny to make me hate myself.

These are just the bonus items I got for signing up! I will dive into these with the actual Birchbox Unboxing! Here’s a pic though!

As always, thanks for reading! Til next time!

Before She Knew Him

I chose this as my March 2019 Book of the Month. I’ve been trying to stay away from the classic genres I like, such as mystery and suspense, but I said screw it, we are doing the damn thing.

Enter Before She Knew Him by Peter Swanson.

I chose this book mainly because the title was interesting. I wish I had some more insightful reason for my choices, but I’m a simple person y’all.

Let me go ahead and post the inside covers for you!

As I was reading this, I was almost kicking myself in the ass for picking something so predictable. I was bored with the story probably half of the book…..then shit hit the fan!

Overall, the book was OK. It wasn’t my favorite and I’m not going to be like “OH MY GOSH GO BUY THIS NOW”, but I was an ok read. I finished the book which I wasn’t convinced I was going to be able to do. It did surprise me which is great if you’re looking for something shocking but I don’t think it’ll win any awards. It might make a good movie though.

*SPOILERS AHEAD*

*DONT READ IF YOU WANT TO READ THE BOOK YOURSELF ***

This is freaking Dexter meets Split. Like no joke, this ended up being SUCH a surprise for me. Like, I did not see a split personality element coming into play for this story.

That being said, I still wasn’t 100% in love with this story. It was a story with hints of sexual assault, domestic abuse, psychologically disturbed aspects that almost seems over played as character background stories. I know that sounds weird to say, but you can almost 100000% predict that there’s going to be a huge in- depth backstory of abuse if the writer is using the perspective of a murderer. I know that it helps understand motives to some extent, but this novel was a little too graphic and dove into the back story too much for my taste.

I appreciate the element of mental health awareness in here – how any history of mental illness pretty much blacklists a person from being a reliable source of information. I think that as a writer, Swanson poses an interesting aspect of what the implications to the story would have been if the main character had been believed the first time she raised suspicions and accusations….but then again we wouldnt have had much of a story to read!

So there we have it. I haven’t given up faith on murder mystery suspense stories, but I also won’t be rushing out to buy another.

Til next time!

CAUSEBOX Spring 2019

I have to say when I saw the spoilers for this, I was not excited. I was annoyed I purchased an annual subscription because there was nothing exciting from what I could tell. Well, I was wrong. This is actually a lot better than I thought!

Let’s open it up!

This box is very pretty! I love the focus on women and the spring colors.

Is there anything prettier than flowers? No. There’s not.

This booklet is one of my favorite little informational blurbs that comes with sub boxes – there is information about the founders behind these companies which look like mostly women. I love that they include a little background!

There are also coupon codes for any purchases of these products! Feel free to use them if anything tickles your fancy.

I love that they turned the artwork into a sticker for the box. It’s a nice touch for the box that makes it more cohesive.

On to the items!

They also include sweet postcards from the artist who designed the box for the season. This one comes from Alja Horvat.

Spring CAUSEBOX artist, Alja Horvat works out of Ljuljana, Slovenia – where she combines bright colors, textures, and patterns to create her unique and iconic maximalist style. Her work often depicts strong, poised feminine figures in vintage floral attire – and she finds her inspiration in 70s fashion, movies, museums, and most of all, nature.

I think it is amazing they include information about the artist and a little sample of her artwork in a keepsake. I want to frame them for little seasonal artwork around my house!

First Item: Glass Ladder & Co The Megan Portfolio Clutch –

An exclusively-designed and PETA-approved vegan leather portfolio clutch, stylishly designed for work and play.

When I saw this as a spoiler I WAS PISSED! I have a few vegan leather items that seem so cheap and I really don’t see how plastic leather is any better than real leather besides plants are dying instead of animals…..so naturally I thought I was going to hate this item. But y’all, this is actually so much nicer than it photographs. It is heavier than other vegan leather products I have received which makes me happy. It really feels like great quality and there is a lot of space to get organized. One day, when I get a big girl job, I will be happy to use this. In the meantime, I will think of clever ways to make this a little activity portfolio for when I go back home and have to entertain my kid on a very long ass plane ride.

I do have one disappointment with this though. It is advertised to be able to hold a 13 inch laptop but mine definitely it no where close to fitting one with a case on. I think it will fit without the case but come on – my laptop case is too beautiful to take off. I think I will fit an iPad or something in there. I’ll show you the laptop below –

See, it’s so close!

Item Two: Wyld French Pink Clay Konjac Sponge

A powerful-yet-gentle exfoliating facial sponge made from renewable plant root and French pink clay, baked to perfection like a gentle cookie.

I love that this is an exfoliating sponge for your face. I have a lot for my body but I am also running out of my facial exfoliant. I think this description is hilarious for a sponge, but holy hell now I want whatever a gentle cookie is.

Item Three: Cosmedix Glow Bamboo Brightening Mask

A combination mask and scrub made from bamboo extract, designed to achieve clinical results with natural ingredients.

I can’t say that I have any masks that have bamboo as an ingredient. That being said, I am kind of tired of this type of mask in subscription boxes. I really want like a pack of sheet masks. Throw in some Tatcha and I will die of happiness. I like that this is supposedly brightening though. My face needs brightness. Hell, my life needs brightness. Send me life brightness next please.

Item Four: Cleobella Silky Scarf

An ultra-versatile lightweight spring scarf made from vegan silk, inspired by global designs and female empowerment.

This was another thing I was not happy to see in the spoilers either. I have to admit, I saw there was going to be an actual silk scarf in the Box of Style so now I will have two. Also, I have no idea what the hell vegan silk is but I had no idea what I was going to do with this scarf…..then it got here. This is SO SO pretty! It’s not as silky as I thought it would be (vegan silk texture I guess), but the colors on this are beautiful. I wear a lot of black, grey, subtle colors and this will go beautifully with it. Also, this color looks great in my hair. There are many times where I wear headbands hiking or around the house or something and this is large enough to create a super cute look. It also will look great on my very chic diaper bag as a pop of color.

Item Five: Kálos Mist Congeniality Elixir Toning Mist

Rose Water Hydra-Mist inspired by a generational rosewater recipe and designed to provide a moment of peace and refreshment with every spritz.

Another thing that seems to be overplayed in subscription boxes is facial mists. This is nice – it has a subtle rose sent and feels refreshing BUT it’s a facial mist. It is nothing special and there is unfortunately no other way to put it.

Item Six: Altru Macrame Plant Hanger

The perfect macrame plant hanger to bring a touch of green into your house and support an effort to plant trees in parts of California that were recently ravaged by wildfires.

Now this is a creative thing to put in a subscription box. It seems very vintage but y’all, I love me a good way to display plants. This is so cute and I cannot wait to find a cute planter to put in this. Maybe I will put a bowl in there and stuff it full of cute stuffed animals and stick into my little man’s nursery. Who knows, but I dig it!

Item Seven: Marina de Buchi Luxe Gold Plated Bracelet

A gold-plated bracelet that symbolizes freedom, and supports the effort to abolish human trafficking through charity partner, A21.

This is something else that I wasn’t excited about. I think it’s almost too subtle and dainty but it’ll be nice with some chunkier bracelets. I like the background for the bracelet though so that makes up for its lack of uniqueness.

Item Eight: Ettitude Bamboo Lyocell Eye Mask

A 100% Organic Bamboo Lyocell sleep mask made from an earth-friendly fabric that also happens to be the softest material we’ve ever felt.

So, I have mentioned it a few times BUT I live in Alaska – that means coming up soon, I will have almost 24 hours of sunlight. I am not sure how the hell people around here deal with that (I’m from TN after all) but I imagine this will be great to have. It seems comfy enough to sleep in but in a few months, this will undergo the ultimate test.

So, there it is! The booklet does not provide prices for the items, but I don’t mind it. I like the collection of everything even though I thought I was going to be very disappointed. I really love the clutch the most I think. I love how classy and elegant it looks! I imagine me walking in looking like a boss bitch holding this OR I imagine me lugging my iPad along and having random small things to entertain my child. It could go either way, but the most important thing is that it gives me variety. The thing I am surprisingly disappointed by is that there are really only 2 things (clutch and hanging basket) that are out of the norm for the subs I have seen. I really need to find a subscription more unique!

Anyways, there might be a couple more bigger seasonal boxes on the way AND at the beginning of April, I get a lovely box of clothes from FabFitFun – a new program they are trying out that is similar to Stitch Fix. I am really excited about it!

Thanks for reading! Til next time!
