Loves It Newfoundland Box October 2016

Loves It is a box of Newfoundland sourced, hand crafted, home made items.  They are proudly sending out boxes of items they purchase from those local suppliers so that they can show off the greatness of their artists, crafters, and businesses.  They offer both a Standard or a Premium box and monthly or quarterly subscriptions.  Boxes start at $35.00 a month but do go down with longer plans.  There will be 4-7 items per box and they say they will range in value from $40-$75.  I am always on the lookout for Canadian boxes and so while I’m not from Newfoundland nor have I ever been there I was still interested in this box.

I was shocked this month to not see the familiar warning on the box to not cut down.  I guess there won’t be a print.  The box was heavy this month though.

Haunted Shores by Dale Jarvis-$14.95

This is a book of ghost stories of Newfoundland and Labrador.  I like ghost stories so that is a lucky thing.  Most of the ones in here seem to be only a few pages long each so there must be plenty of ghosts on those little islands.

Home Sticker

I like this but as it would be a total lie for me to use it will be going to my Hubby to give to one of his coworkers who is an actual Newfie.

Indigena Smooth Lip Balm-$4.99

This balm feels so nice!  It is made with Canadian beeswax and sweet orange oil.  I seem to be getting less balms lately so I like to see new ones and Canadian ones at that.

Newfoundland Seasonings Taste Of ‘Ome-$3.85

This is a salt free blend of herbs and spices that is inspired by local flavours.  I can’t wait to use this on meat or veg, I think it’ll be great.

Lard Tunderin’ Chocolate Bar-$5.00

I have got a few items from this chocolate company and they do not disappoint.  This is a milk chocolate with caramel and sea salt bar.  The wrapper is the provincial flag and this is one of many regional sayings.  I love Newfies.

No Place Like Home Soap-$7.00

This is a partridgeberry and bakeapple soap.  I have no clue what either of those are but it smells amazing.  It is a shea butter soap and I will be putting this at the top of my to use pile.

I also got a Partridgeberry Candle from Foggy Island Candles but this blog is acting up and I’ve been having problems uploading pictures lately.  I’ve received their candles before and they are lovely.  They are worth $6.50.

This was my eigth box from Loves It and I still never have any clue what to expect to be in it besides it all being from Newfoundland.  There is a good mix of products. I just wish for a few of the thing that they would tell me what or why it was included. Value is always hard for this box as I don’t always know where things are from, but this one is at least $41.64. If you want to check them out click here to go to their site.
