White Willow January 2017

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 are changing all that up starting now.  If you subscribe now you will get boxes every other month.  Anyone who was already on a plan will continue to get boxes monthly until their time is up.

I know I say it every time but the presentation of this box is amazing.  They take so much care in how they make it look and feel like a present each month.

They also include a professional looking info card that tells you what items you received, a little about each item, and the price of them.

20170110_1932182017 Weekly Planner by Lady Jane Ltd.-$18.00

This is a very pretty planner.  I know I’m a little late getting this post up but this box arrived early in January so this would have been on time.  I had already bought and begun using a planner a while before this so it’s not really useful for me personally but I think it was a great inclusion.  There was a chance for two different cover styles.

20170110_193207Fingerless Sweater Knit Winter Gloves-$10.00

I have a pair of these and I love them so I’m very happy to get another one.  The palms on these ones do not have the cable pattern so they lay flat on your hand.  They do have the thumb hole in them and they go from my knuckles to three inches past my wrists. You could have received one of six colours and I got Dark Grey.

20170110_193107Cosmetic Beauty Sponge by W.O.W. Beauty Los Angeles-$6.00

I think this is the fifth makeup sponge I’ve received and I’m still using the first one!  None of my other ones has a gold belt, though.  I do use it every day so having backup is nice.

20170110_193128Naked Skin Beauty Balm by Urban Decay-$43.00

Let me start off by saying that Urban Decay is a brand I would live in if I had unlimited funds to do so.  This BB cream is for your whole body.  It has a minty scent and a slight shimmer.  It looks like it would leave a colour on your skin but doesn’t once you rub it on.  It has all sorts of benefits and might now have to give up on lattes to buy more once it runs out.  I absolutely love this!!!!!

20170110_193153Fairtrade Organic 72% Dark Chocolate with Blueberries and Lavender by Earth’s Choice-$5

OOOOOOOH a chocolate bar!  I normally give all dark chocolate to my Hubby but I think he’d turn down one with these flavours anyways.  This bar is organic, fair trade, gluten and soy free, and made with no preservatives.  I’ve never had anything where I ingest lavender before so this will be a new experience along with a treat.

The value this time is $82.00.  This month had items I like, and will use. I think it was a good combination of things to break up your Winter and yet keep you prepared.   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!
