White Willow May 2016

White Willow is a monthly lifestyle box that sends out surprise items from beauty, fashion, home, culinary, or all around lifestyle themes.  They ship out four to five items and are a Canadian company.  That makes me so happy I was okay paying slightly more than I normally would for a box.  They promise a value of $70, so let’s hope they meet that.  Subscriptions start at $35 a month but do go down a bit with longer plans.  Shipping to here is $8.50/month.

They ship in a very sturdy, well branded box.  It actually comes in a plain outer box but once you get inside that is this one.

They have great presentation.  Inside the branding continues with a ribbon and the lid of the box printed as well.  The first look at the items didn’t really give me much to go off of.

When you open up the info card, the professionalism just continues.  There are good pictures of each item and write-ups about the products, including prices in Canadian!

Dauville Bottle Coaster in Gold-$22.00

Well I have to admit I had no clue there was such a thing as a bottle coaster.  Obviously I am not high class enough for things like that.  I thought it was just a fancy trinket bowl.  It is beautiful glazed porcelain with a gold rim.  I think it will hold my jewelry perfectly.

Artisan Edibles Jelly in Raspberry Cardamom-$13.00

There were two possible flavours sent out this month, the other being Blueberry Lavender.  This is made for discerning palates, or so it says, and can be used not only on toast but also with pork, duck, game hen, cheese, or to sweeten your tea.  It tastes delicious and will be delightful on toast, since none of those other options will happen in this house.

They also included a card with the suggested cheese pairings if you needed suggestions.

Striped Infinity Scarf-$24.00

This is a really nice scarf.  It is light and soft and bunches up perfectly around my neck.  You could have received 3 colour options, pink coral, denim blue, or cafe latte as I got.  I have a few scarves and am still working out how to wear them so getting one that seems to be almost effortless in application is a great thing.

Flora Bodycare All Natural “Vanilla + Coconut” Body Scrub-$17.00

This is a vegan, natural, and chemical free body scrub.  I can pronounce and identify every ingredient in it.  I love bath products, even though being in a bathroom alone is a bit of a stretch at this point in my life.

Brookside Dark Chocolate Soft Fruit Flavoured Treat

They list this as a bonus item for the box.  I never see chocolate as a bad thing and any other Brookside items I’ve tried have been delicious so I will savour these a few at a time to make them last.

My second box leaves me just as impressed as my first box from White Willow. The value is $76.00 so they made good on their promise.  This month definitely was maybe geared to a more sophisticated person than myself but I like everything in it and will gladly try it all out.  Sometimes you find things you can no longer live without and sometimes not so much.  I am always happy to find a Canadian box and this one is a good one!
