LuxePineapple Box Of Joy February 2016

LuxePineapple is a website that offers makeup and skincare items.  They also have what they call the Box Of Joy, which is not a subscription but rather a collection they put together every month.  They switch up the themes and while they do list all the items included it is still a fun box.  They do call them a Glossary Box as well, not to be confused with GlossyBox though.  Boxes range from $17-$20 and shipping to Canada is $6.00.

The box shipped in a plain bubble mailer and inside was this lovely package.  This box is the Weekend Essentials one.

20160314_163136 20160314_163145

They also included a handwritten thank you note, which is such a nice touch.

20160314_163207 20160314_163218

There is an info card included and on the front is a quote by Leonardo Da Vinci.  The back has all the items listed with prices and just a few lines about each of them.

20160314_163234

Opening the box gave me nothing!  Damn well wrapped surprises.

20160314_163303

Love Knot From Pieces To Peaces by Danielle Hale-$9.99 x 2

These are really comfortable.  They are just on the tight side but I know they will stretch with use.  They are machine washable and should give lots of use to me.  They have a nice wide band that doesn’t dig in and the knot also isn’t pushing into the top of my head.

20160314_163458

Dermadeli Lavish Lip Collagen Serum-$28.99

This serum goes on like a gloss.  It promises to make your lips feel smoother, fuller, and more firm.  It feels cool going on and is really sticky until it dries and then it’s okay but you can’t rub your lips together because they don’t slide on each other.  I’m not sure how fuller my lips will get but I’ll give it a try and hope for the best.

20160314_163334

LuxePineapple Collection Luxe Blush in Valentine-$15.00

I can’t think of the last time I received a blush in a box and I’m so happy to have got one.  This has a pearl finish and looks really natural on.  All of their cosmetics are made in the USA and seem to be good quality.  I’ll put this to use starting tomorrow.

20160314_163344

LuxePineapple Collection Luxe Eye Shadow in Enchant & Splendid-$8.00 each

These are not listed on the card so I guess they are bonus items.  The pearl coloured one is super shimmery and will make a great base shade.  The blue one is matte finish and not as dark as I thought it would be.  They also say they do not test on animals, which is excellent.

20160314_163152

Timeless Truth Bio Cellulose Hydra-Soothing Moisturising Mask-$1.20

This was also not listed.  This package is very full of serum.  It is a sheet mask, which have become one of my favourite things since getting boxes.  This one promises to improve fine lines and wrinkles by hydrating the collagen fibres in your skin to make you glow.  It was interesting to find anything out about it as the webpage was all in Chinese but thankfully Google Translate came through for me.

I enjoyed this box.  The value was $81.17, which is four times what I paid for it.  I have already ordered next months and they have sent out an email saying in April there will be a LuxePineapple Post so maybe there will be a regular subscription box offered up.  I will keep checking the site and even if they don’t do one will buy these boxes as they become available.  You can see things for yourself by clicking here.

House Box February 2016

House Box is a Canadian bi-monthly subscription box that sends you 5 or more assorted home product samples.  Plans start at $21.95 but do go down with longer plans and shipping is $9.95.  Taxes are included in the pricing.  The site says you can review your products and shape future boxes but so far I can’t figure out how to make that happen.  The items included are Canadian companies too!  After you have tried them out you can purchase the full sized version from the website or they have links direct to the companies.  Let’s see what was inside this month.

20160310_142241

The box was smaller than I was expecting.  It fit in the mailbox actually.  It is well branded and looks professional.  The blue tape you can see is actually a sticker with their name on it as well.

20160310_142259

Opening the lid revealed more good packaging.  There is a card on top and tissue paper hiding the goodies.

20160310_142312

Under all that was my stuff and the box is full and well packed.  I could see a few things and all items were in their own bag or package.

20160310_142324

The front of the info card (shown above) let you know what box you received.  The back lists the products, a little bit about each of them, and retail prices for them.  It also reminds you that you can find more of them on their site or blog.

20160310_142727

Kienna Coffee Roasters Kienna Cup-$5.00

This is a system that replaces the k-cups you would normally use in single serve coffee Machnes.  They included 2 Columbian and one French Dark to try out plus there are two different holders depending on what generation of Keurig you have.  The difference using this is that there is no plastic to toss after, just the compostable pod.  I don’t drink coffee but I thing I could totally out my tea bag in this and run it through.  We have a machine in our office and I use it daily anyways so this might make my life easier.

20160310_142421

Blue Wonder Try Me Cloth-$15.00

This cloth is supposed to replace all other cleaning tools in my house.  It uses just water and leaves no streaks.  It also dries as you clean and removes bacteria.  It is microfibre, which is a texture I dislike on my hands but I’m all for anything that helps make cleaning easier and quicker.  Maybe I can just give it to the kids and they will wipe as they go?

20160310_142333

Sugar Bears-$6.00

I have one of these and I love it!  My brown sugar never gets hard and horrible.  They are also good for keeping baked goods moist or if you dry them totally you can use them to absorb moisture from things that need to be cripsy.

20160310_142719

Live For Tomorrow’s Elbow Grease-30mL $0.29

This is a concentrated cleaner that smells like Mr.Clean.  It doesn’t have the ratio for mixing it on this bottle which is a bit odd.  It says it is a coconut & citrus based formula and works great on kitchens and bathrooms.  I feel that I should use less toxic cleaners because of the kids but I never do so this will give me a chance to try one out.

20160310_142654

Earth Elements Farm Products Soothing Lip Service-$5.00

I haven’t received a lip balm in a while and getting a natural one made in British Columbia is a great way to get another.  This one is tangerine and handmade.  It has SPF and UV protection.  It doesn’t really have a scent but it does feel great on and I like it!

20160310_142629

Earth Elements Farm Products Soy Tealight-$3.50

It doesn’t say what scent this candle is but it smells great!  It also is in a glass holder, which is a surprise.  They also included a pack of matches because as their note says candles should only ever be lit with them.

I am very happy with this box.  This months has a value of $34.79, which I think is good.  There was a mix of all sorts of items for the home and with them all being Canadian it’s a bunch of good finds.  I have been on a mission to find more Canadian boxes since the exchange rate is so crappy right now and this was the first one to arrive.  I hope that the rest of the boxes from them are as good as this one.  If you want to sign up let me know and I can send you a link!

 

The Beaver Box Winter 2016

This is my third Beaver Box.  They are a quarterly Canadian women’s box that will include something fashion, food, beauty, and home, plus always a little extra!  They source as much as they can from their local area but do have items from all across Canada.  Boxes are $55.00 per quarter or you can get a yearly subscription for $200.00.  Let’s see what we got that is just for the Canadian woman.

This month they had sent out an email saying that the boxes were going to be late because they were waiting for one of the items and promising shipping by the beginning of February.  Once this box arrived there was a letter inside saying that they felt they could wait no longer and had shipped the box missing one piece.  They included a bonus item to make up for it along with a $10 credit for your account.  I can’t figure out how to apply it but they did give an email you can reach them at if you had any problems so I’ll just drop them a line.

20160226_175200 20160226_175235

Opening the lid showed the nicely wrapped insides.  The letter was laying on top so you saw it as soon as you lifted the lid.  Under the paper was a pleasantly full box, which is great to see.

20160226_175211

The info card has a little blurb about why Canadian winters are great.  The back has a list of the items included and websites where you can purchase them if you can’t get enough.

20160226_175342

Clean Eats Cinnaberry Granola-200g $9.00

This is a grain free granola that is gluten free, vegan, paleo, and lactose free.  It is full of iron, fibre and potassium and has a great cinnamon scent to it.  The company is based out of Laval, Quebec and has a range of food items.  I have granola on yogurt at least once a week so I’m very happy to get more to try out.

20160226_175506 20160226_175533

Hattitude Jewellery Earrings-$25.00

These specific earrings are not shown on the website but the cheapest pair on there is $25.00 so that’s what I’ve used.  These are pretty and while not something I would have ever picked out myself I think I will wear them.  The only thing I’m not all that happy with is that the “gem” is just a plastic stone and if you’re looking close at them you can tell easily.

20160226_175322

Dawn Brook Lavender Sachet

As soon as you opened the box you could smell this.  I couldn’t get a price as her Etsy shop is totally empty right now.  My underwear drawer is going to smell awesome!!!!

20160226_175259

Verdant Botanicals Luxe Bath Milk

So again I can’t price this because the website has stuff on it but none of the tabs are clickable.  This milk bath is made with coconut milk powder and smells like a pina colada.  You could totally think you were floating on the ocean off a tropical island while soaking in this.  It also has some dried flowers in it and baking soda for the skin softening properties.

20160226_175438

This is the bonus item they included.  It was supposed to be a plaid scarf.  The mug is nice, it’s glass with a rubber lid.  I already have one from one of the previous boxes they sent out but I think replacing the missing item with something is a nice gesture on their part.

Box three was as slightly disappointing but that is due to the lack of one item more then what was included.  Because the scarf is missing they did not cover all the promised categories.  I like that the companies are Canadian and that all of these items are available to me, which isn’t always the case.  The box had a value of $34.00 plus the three items I couldn’t price, so I think it will be close to what I paid this time. Canadian boxes are not to common so I’m liking this one for the variety provided.  If you want to check them out click here.

 

So…..January Has Been Slow

Hello everyone!  I hope you’ve all recovered from the holidays and that you got to spend some time with people who mean something to you.  I was going to say family but then I realised that for some, family is not who we would choose to hang out with voluntarily.  We had family from both sides down for a few days and it was great!  The girls had a blast and even though we are back to regular life again Bug is still asking when we can put the Christmas tree back up.  She also asks when Winter will be over and is not to happy when I say about 100 sleeps.  Yesterday Bug had to go to the hospital for an ABR with anesthetic.  If you don’t know that is an Automatic Brain Response test.  She had been tested for her hearing since birth, as is standard now, and has always just missed passing those tests.  SInce I have hearing loss as well they decided to do this test just to rule out any serious issues.  The scary part of course is that she has to be put under for the test to be done.  We have been very lucky in that both of our girls have had no serious medical issues so this was the first big thing we’ve had to go to the hospital for.  Thankfully everything  went well and the tests were normal so Bug is back at school today and probably telling everyone that she got 2 popsicles and a ride in a bed with wheels!  I asked her if there was any part of the day that was bad, considering we were there for 8.5 hours, and she said no, it was all fun and good.  I think that says a lot about the nurses and doctors that we interacted with and even those that were just walking by but gave her a wave or a quick chat.  I know there are times when our medical system doesn’t work smoothly or the wait times can be long but I have yet to leave the hospital after something for myself and now the kids without being grateful to the staff and the system.

In box news, there has been none.  As you might have noticed from the lack of posts.  I have received three boxes so far this month and that leaves 12 to arrive.  Hopefully this week I will get LookFantastic, Little Life Box, and Topbox. I do have a couple of new boxes I signed up for to come but since I’ve never received them before I don’t know if they are a middle of the month one or closer to the end.  I’m starting to get amil withdrawal!  Having done a bunch of my Christmas shopping online, not getting something everyday in December has spoiled me for mail delivery.  I’m sure my mailman is happier without the load but I’m really hoping for something soon!

Take Care All!!

Prairie Lily

La Papierre Stationery Subscription Service December 2015

La Papierre is a stationery subscription service.  The have three different plans depending on how much paper you want/need each month.  Plan A gives you 6 notepads with 4 sheets each for $10.00.  Plan B gives you 6 designs with 8 sheets each for $20.00. Plan C gives you 6 designs with 24 sheets each for $40.00.  All plans have free shipping in Canada. This subscription is based out of Vermont, previously Quebec, and they have an Etsy shop as well where you can purchase stationery sets in addition to notepads.  You used to get a few new designs and a few best sellers.  Now you get all new ones each month.

20160105_163139

This month there was a little note included in the envelope saying that things would be a little different this month as they gear up for new items in the new year.

20160105_163205 20160105_163241 20160105_163223

I’m not too sure what they meant by changing things up but so far I like this months offerings.  The birds on a wire one is so cute!! I think I might have received the other bird one before but I like it too so that’s not an issue.  I’m not so fond of the girls playing but that is only because it is unlined and that is never my reference in writing paper.

20160105_163255 20160105_163320 20160105_163311

These last three are lined so that makes them good to start with.  The butterfly one is the one I would say is my least favourite of these three but it’s only by the slimmest of margins and I would be looking for something to dislike.  I think the Poe one might be a leftover from Halloween but it is just themed so it will still work as normal paper instead of only for the season.  As for the last one, who doesn’t love a good housewife!

I really like La Papierre.  I tend to use up most of what I get each month so it works out perfectly.  As I mentioned I just went with Plan A so there is only 4 of each style.  I like that  I only spend $10.00 here, so that leaves me room to convince myself I could buy paper elsewhere too.  If you want some paper for yourself click here to get to their website.

Kawaii Box November 2015

Kawaii Box is a monthly box of items selected from Japanese and Korean kawaii products.  Kawaii means cute so everything is based on that premise.  They ship anywhere in the world with free shipping and the box is $18.90 a month.  This has quickly become one of my favorite boxes that I receive.  It is full of things that no one really needs, but I’m always so thrilled to get.  I cannot see me getting rid of this box anytime in the near future.  I love this box and I haven’t been able to find stationary boxes that come close.

20151221_211258 20151221_211332

The card this month was sooooo cute!  Underneath things were colourful and I could see Pocky!

20151221_211746 20151221_211759

I was wondering if they would be sending me another calendar.  The one I got last year was very cute and I had been hoping for one.  This one has room on the back of the pages to write notes to yourself while still keeping my desk cute.

20151221_211817

There is a adorable little Christmas card this month.  Inside has just enough space to write a short message to whoever you send this out to.  It would work as a gift tag too.

20151221_211830

Xmas Puffy Stickers

Just in time for the last few letters out this month are some awesome puffy stickers filled with Santa and his friends.  These are some of my favorite things to get in this box.

20151221_211502

Rain Boot Pen

This pen writes well, with a black gel ink.  I have not had any issues with the pens I’ve received from them and a bunch of them have been similar to this so I’m thinking they come from the same company and are all comparable.

20151221_211717

Nora Band Highlighter Set

These are about 4″ long and all have a little cartoon character on them.  They would be super cute for school supplies but I’ll find some use for them.  I’ve got a new project coming up soon and I’m sure I’ll need to mark some papers for it.

20151221_211427 20151221_211439

Kawaii Plush Beans

Is this not one of the cutest things you’ve ever seen???  There are three little bean balls that can come out of the pod or be zipped up all cozy.  Love it!

20151221_211550

Strawberry Pocky Biscuit Sticks

I’ve never had the strawberry ones but I since I like the other flavours I’ve tried are good I have little doubt I would enjoy these too.

20151221_211616

Kawaii Fruits Hair Pin Set

Bug is going to love these.  We always nee barrettes for her hair since it’s so fine and the cuter the better.  Yay for these!

20151221_211844

Cute Bunny Canvas Pouch

This little drawstring bag will also go to the kids and be filled with whatever treasures  they can find in the first five minutes after they grab it.

20151221_211402

Squishy Emoticon Bread Charm

This looks like a bun with a chocolate face drawn on it.  I still have no idea what to use these for and they are all in a drawer.  Squishy and fun they are though.

20151221_211701

Harajuku Bag Charm

This is the oddest collection of things on a charm I have ever seen.  It has a stretchy bracelet, a clay rainbow, a plastic chain, and  a bell.  Curious little thing.

I have been thinking about cancelling this box because the exchange rate is so not in my favour that it’s getting a bit expensive.  I do like this box and all the things in it so it’ll be a hard decision.

 

 

Karepax November 2015

Karepax is a monthly box that sends out an assortment of candy and comics.  They offer a bunch of plans ranging from single months or just comics to full years worth.  Plans start at $26.00 and go up from there based on what your getting and how long you sign up for.  The site currently says only shipping to the US but I have a plan and so I’m not sure if that’s true or not.  I went for the Retro package which sends out snacks, candies, comics and a cheesy DVD  each month.  I had a bit of trouble getting my box and in fact am missing what should have been my first box but they have been very helpful and quick in responding to my email concerns.  This is the first box I received and it looked like a whole bunch of fun.

20151127_095819

I didn’t get a shot of the freshly opened box but it was crammed full.  There is no card listing your items but there is this letter and it talks about the various countries the candies are rom and let’s you know that not every box is the same.  It also talked about a  Halloween box that was available and that while they will try to send you no obvious nut items if you let them know they cannot promise there is nothing nut in each box.

20151127_095856

These are so good and I used to buy them just at my local grocery store.  The Hello Panda cookies are filled with a few flavours but these ones are chocolate.  They have cute little sports pictures on them and I want to eat them but I will let the girls have them.

20151127_095908

These are Bimbo Conchas.  They are a Mexican chocolate pastry.  They kind of look like a big bun but I guess that they are chocolate flavoured.  I’m not sure what these taste like and I’m a bit leery but they are soft and I’m sure very tasty.

20151127_095920

Glico Pocky sticks are another one of those that I had bought and eaten.  These are the chocolate flavour ones but they do make a few others and all are delicious.

20151127_095937

Next out was a Vanilla Charleston Chew.  I have eaten these but never in my life have I seen one that is so big!  Also it says to try it frozen and I can only think that would result in broken teeth.  This one is still wonderfully soft and flexible and I can only stare at it longingly.

20151127_095945

Oh Double Bubble….so great for the five minutes before your jaw locks up trying to chew it.  This is another one that I didn’t realize came in such a large size.  Normally I only see this gum around Halloween and it’s single pieces.

20151127_095959

These are Parle 20-20 Butter Cookies.  Sorry for the blurry picture.  They have a cricket player on them and say they are the “Choice Of Champions”.  My hubby loves cookies that are not sweet so I’m thinking these will be a hit for him.

20151127_100010

Sina Orange Ginger Chews are in here too and they are a bunch of individually wrapped soft chews in this box.  I gave one a try and the first taste is all orange but then the ginger kicks in and they are a little spicy.  My tongue is tingling.  Good though.

20151127_100022

These are Nik-L-Nip Mini Drinks.  I have never understood why anyone wants to eat wax.  You can just take the top off and drink them or eat the whole thing.  I don’t get it.

20151127_100030

Also from Parle we have some more cookies.  Fab! Orange Flavoured Choco Chip Sandwich Cookies.  This combo looks delicious and I think they will go over here well, like the other cookies.

20151127_100044

This is a Mangosteen Pudding cup and I’ve seen these in the stores but I’ve never tried one.  It looks a bit Jell-o like in texture.

20151127_100055

These are an American candy that I’ve never seen here but have seen recipes that call for them.  They are a pressed sugar disc and are probably not something I would normally eat anyways but that’s the fun of this type of box.

20151127_100120

This is the collection of small candies they promise to include.  A bunch of them don’t have english names but short of the ones that say coffee flavoured I’m thinking I’ll like them.

20151127_100135

Hi-Chew Green Apple Fruit Chews were also in there and while I’ve never had this flavour I have eaten these before and like them.

20151127_100143

The last candy item is Pop Rocks Pumpkin Patch Orange.  They are a mix of orange and green candy and I’m not sure if they are pumpkin flavoured but I think that would be gross.

20151127_100152

My DVD for the month is Disc 5 of Sci-Fi Classics.  This is a double sided DVD and has four episodes of Hercules.  I’m thinking the 60’s live action version.  I’m sure it’s horrible and I love it.

20151127_100223

With the Retro pack you get double the comics in each box.  The first one is a smaller comic, Plants vs. Zombies.

20151127_100231 20151127_100323 20151127_100313 20151127_100304

These four seem to be new comics.  I haven’t read a comic in years so I have no idea what’s good or not.  I’ll read anything though and I can pass these on to Hubs to take to work when I’m done or maybe save them up and give them to my brother as a gift…..

20151127_100254 20151127_100243

These last two are what I remember comics being like. Newsprint and a glossy cover.  These ones are from 1975 and 1989 respectively and look as cheesy as I could ever want them to be.

For my first box I’m happy.  I’m now waiting for the next one and hope it gets here soon.  They can’t offer me tracking because it’s to Canada but they ship out around the 27th of each month and it can take anywhere from 3-12 days to arrive.  With the crazy shipping of Xmas going on I’ll give them a bit more before wondering where it is.

 

A Few More Advent Calendars!

So in my attempt to find a better version of a beauty advent calendar I have found two more to go with the one I told you about a couple of days ago.

20151123_164513

First up is the Selfridges Beauty Advent Calendar.  This one also came all the way from the UK to get to me.  It contains in their words, “Our ultimate selection from the beauty workshop at Selfridges”.  In case you don’t know, Selfridges is a department store that carries mostly higher priced brands.  This one was 50 British Pounds plus 25 Pounds shipping.

20151123_164542

It has a very cosmic feel to it and I’m excited to see what it all contains.

20151124_115051

Next up is The Face Shop Beauty Advent Calendar.  The Face Shop is a division of Fruits & Passion and I found out about this one from a Chatelaine article.  This one says it’s full of regular sized  beauty products.  This one was $69.00 Canadian.

20151124_115131

All the doors are very festive in this one and I just love opening them up one at a time.  I’m one of those people who never rips into presents, I carefully unwrap them, so I think the waiting makes each day better.

20151124_115156

On the back is an actual list of everything inside but I’m not peeking!!!!

I think this is the last of the ones I found that I wanted.  There are plenty of others out there but I either thought them too expensive or filled with things I didn’t want.  I will try to make sure I post what I get so you can follow along and see if maybe next year you want to try out any of these for yourself.

Kawaii Box September 2015

Kawaii Box is a monthly box of items selected from Japanese and Korean kawaii products.  Kawaii means cute so everything is based on that premise.  They ship anywhere in the world with free shipping and the box is $18.90 a month.  This has quickly become one of my favorite boxes that I receive.  It is full of things that no one really needs, but I’m always so thrilled to get.  I cannot see me getting rid of this box anytime in the near future.  I love this box and I haven’t been able to find stationary boxes that come close.

20151016_131222 20151016_131238

I liked it better when there was a little handwritten note but I have to say I’m glad to not have to guess at what each thing is.

20151016_131453

Kabaya Fish Gummies

Going off the picture it looks like there are three different types of gummies in here letting you eat all the stages of fish growth.  I have yet to get bad candy from these boxes and the only thing I can say is that they are usually pure sugar.

20151016_131526

Kawaii Foods Sticker Set

I know it’s hard to tell from the picture but these are super puffy stickers. I get the best stickers out of this box!  I use them on my penpal letters and hope they are getting as much joy from them as me.

20151016_131427

Moomin Mini Pouch

I haven’t got a sniff what Moomin is, maybe a cartoon or comic strip?  This is a little change purse keychain thingy.  It’s not very big but I think it’s cute and I’ll use it for something.

20151016_131401

Fragrance Beads

This little jar is filled with little gelly beads that smell.  I can’t think of what it is they smell like but it’s fruity and pleasant.  I am not sure what to do with them though.  I don’t know if you just leave it open in a drawer or open and sniff when you want a lift?  Hmmmm.

20151016_131537

Cute Animal Greeting Card

Obviously a birthday card, blank on the inside.  This will be put to use probably for one of the birthday parties that Bug will have this year.

Neck Stretching Bunny Pen

This is a black gel pen and it writes well.  It says “let’s wry neck” on it, which doesn’t make sense but some things get lost in translation.  The rabbit is fun and as long as it writes I’m happy.  Hubs would say the last thing I need is another pen but he just doesn’t understand.

Kawaii Toast Squishy Charm

This is one of the cuter ones lately!  Pink toast just wins.

DIY Bracelet Kit

This will be a fun project for Bug and I this winter.  I am always after crafts for her to do and now that she’s a bit older I don’t have to help with stringing things as much.  There are seven different shapes of beads and the elastic thread to string them on.

Alpaca Pouch

This is actually a really big bag.  It could a makeup bag or a large pencil case.  The message must be a common one since it’s appeared on a few other products.  20151016_131319

Cute Egg Mini Plush

I’d have never come up with this being an egg.  Ever.  Beyond that it’s cute and yellow and joyful.  What else do you need?

Caplico Mini Ice Cream Candy

Two candies in one box???  Best day ever!  My sweet tooth might be on high today.  It has a strawberry on it so I’m going to take that as the flavour.  I can’t tell if there are two in there or if mine is just broken but I think I’ll eat this shortly.

As usual I like this box, just incase you couldn’t tell. The stuff is fun and cute and brings me happiness.  If you have any interest in Kawaii then you should get this box!

 

Kawaii Box July 2015

Kawaii Box is a monthly box of items selected from Japanese and Korean kawaii products.  Kawaii means cute so everything is based on that premise.  They ship anywhere in the world with free shipping and the box is $18.90 a month.  This has quickly become one of my favorite boxes that I receive.  It is full of things that no one really needs, but I’m always so thrilled to get.  I cannot see me getting rid of this box anytime in the near future.  I love this box and I haven’t been able to find stationary boxes that come close.  This is my favourite box hands down!!!!!

Once you lift the lid you find some branded wrapping paper and an info card.

The back of that card has a list of your items for this month.

Under that paper is all of the fun!  There is a mix of candy, stationery and accessories.

Kracie DIY Chain Candy

These seem to be a hard sugar candy, like a Rocket, that you can join up together to make a chain.  I have a huge sweet tooth so I’m a fan of any candy.

Squishy Doughnut Mirror

This is so cute but you could never put it on your keys or in your purse because the sprinkles will fall off.  Beyond that I think it’s great and a nice change from the plain old squishy.

Dessert Eraser

This is a piece of pie eraser.  I have a nice little stash of erasers that I keep hidden from the children so that they don’t get ruined or used.  MINE.  I may have a problem.

Kawaii Toast Coaster

This is a chunk of wood.  Shaped like toast, with a face.  We don’t have a coffee table so no real need for coasters but someday maybe I’ll need this.  I could take him to work and put him beside my giant bacon eraser.  Hmmmmmm…..

Pastel Pearl Bracelet

While I could wear this, it will go to the girls.  It is plastic and on a stretch elastic so they can play with it without me worrying about them breaking it.

Korean Glitter Glue Set

This so has to wait until the gilrs are older before they can play with it.  It has six different coloured glues and four large glitter shapes that can adorn whatever needs to be sparkled up.

Rilakkuma Notes

STICKY NOTES!!!!!!!!!! My absolute favorite thing to get in this box and they rarely disappoint.  This little booklet opens up and there are every size of pad you could want or need in your daily job to let people know how you’re feeling.

Mushroom Mini Plush

Again SO CUTE!  I love this too and it is about 4 seconds away from being my new keychain.

20150901_140525

Cute Pencil Set

This is a set of five number 2 pencils, all with different designs on them.  There’s a 50/50 chance that these might not disappear from my desk.

Flake Seal Stickers

This little box contained a small bag of glitter stickers.  There are a bunch of shapes and sizes and they seem to mostly be bears and hearts.

Alpaca Keychain

This is cute and might have to join the mushroom on my keys.  They really like alpacas it seems.

Also in the box are some cards letting you know about the various boxes they offer and the Blippo site.

As usual I like this box, just incase you couldn’t tell. The stuff is fun and cute and brings me happiness.  If you have any interest in Kawaii then you should get this box!
