On Instagram I follow @southernlillylady, a blogger who recently started her own subscription box. She dresses primarily in Lilly Pulitzer in her photos, and I thought I would fall IN LOVE with this box without ever even knowing what was in it. It is $20 per box and you need to commit to three boxes (I got so excited I only read the fine print later…) You can buy the box here.
Anyway, when the box arrived it was totally crushed and partially opened. So that was bummer #1. Then I opened it and was super bummed with the contents. There is no booklet or anything, just the products.
It came with a mason jar with a lemonade recipe, a bunch of paper straws, some tropical bath powder, pineapple earrings and a sparkly bracelet. The jewelry aside I’m not that into the other items. Its not like the drink came with a mix or was immediately useful. I can go to the store and buy a box of mason jars for nothing. I adore the concept though and am hoping next months is much better, and perhaps a little more luxurious to reflect the title of the box.
Oh…that’s a bummer 😦 Do you recommend any subscriptions that you do like, because I have been wanting to get one lately. Could you check out my blog as well, and follow it if you like it? Thank you! I also will keep checking in to see more post! Love your blog! 🙂
Thanks! 🙂 Although I wasn’t happy with this month’s box, I do like Birchbox a lot and have subscribed on and off for a while. They have a great points program. I also love the Allure Beauty Box – my review on that will go up Friday. And I always love the Popsugar boxes! I haven’t subscribed since Christmas, but I read the reviews and always want to resubscribe! I did it for around 6-8 months last year and loved it. That one is less beauty than lifestyle, but you always get fun products. I’ll make sure to follow your blog!! 🙂
