My Box

May Designs Weekly Planner
Value $17
At first, I was a little bummed when I realized that this would be in our box as I just purchased on of these for my classroom last month.  Mine was customized to feature my name and inside was a 2013-2014 planner.  I thought that this one would have to go to a friend as I would have no use for two calendars.  Lucky me, this one came as a weekly planner that does not have pre printed dates.  I can hold onto this one and use it next year.  I am so excited because I have fallen in love with May Designs.  I discovered the site through Groupon and have been following them on Instagram and Pinterest ever since.  There are hundreds of personalization options.  They offer calendars, journals, blank pads, note cards, etc.  Everything can be customized from the pattern, to the colors, to the logo, you name it.  You can even see exactly what your product will look like when you design it on your computer, so there is no second guessing your order.  Your planner will even be hand sewn.  Be sure to check out their Instagram for a quick video of the process.  It's really neat!  Even better, they sent a card with a code that you can enter for a credit worh $5,$50, or $500 on their site.  I only received $5, but it will certainly be used.  I am thinking some friends will be very lucky this Christmas. ;)

Nature Box- Dried Granny Smith Apple Rings
Value $4
I am NOT a fan of dried fruit.  My boyfriend is always making me try some of his, but I just can't stand them.  I want my fruits to be juicy.  I figured this bag would be given to him, but much to my surprised, I tried these and fell in love.  They are not your typical, dried to a crisp snack.  They were soft and tasted just like a granny smith apple.  I will definitely be ordering these in the future.

Lunares Apply Bowl
Value (estimated at $45)
Of course I love this adorable little bowl.  As a teacher this is perfect for holding clips, candy, etc. on my desk.  I love it!

Dermalogica Precleanse and Special Cleansing Gel
Value $19.50 total
I love Dermalogica products.  The brand has some neat, innovated products that leave your skin feeling clean and refreshed.  I have never used a precleanse, so I am super excited about giving this a shot.

Bentgo- The All-in-One Stackable Lunch Box
Value $14.99
This little set is perfect for me as I am trying to be healther and fix my lunch for work each day.  The compartments make it easy to keep my meats seperate from my fruits and vegetables.  It comes with sturdy silverware and a handy elastic band to keep everything together.  I love the color as well!

Lulah Body Wash
Value $11.25
This body wash looks and feels luxurious and has an interesting scent that I love.  This is a large bottle and will last a long time.

Gorjana Open Circle Necklace
Value $65
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this necklace!  It is perfect and delicate.  I can dress it up or wear it down.  It is the perfect way to add a simple touch of class to any outfit.  It doesn't hang too low, so I don't have to worry about it hitting the top of a shirt, hiding under my clothes, or overlapping anything.  This is by far my favorite item this month.  This was a special anniversary gift that was included in everyone's box.  Happy anniversary PopSugar! :)

Some Previous Boxes

This one also included an adorable hat.

Le Parcel Monthly Subscription Service- For Your Favorite Monthly Visitor ;)

So you lovely ladies know that I am a bit obsessed with subscription services, so when I heard about Le Parcel, I was a bit intrigued and could not help but contact the company for a little info.  They were sweet enough to send me a box to review and share with my fabulous readers.

What It Is
Le Parcel is a monthly subscription service that caters to your "monthly visitor" needs.  Yes, it is a comfort kit for your period.  For $15 per month, you get to select 30 of your your favorite name brand products.  You can choose any combination of tampons, liners, and/or pads.  They will also send a surprise product and treat.

What I Received

Is this box and packaging not adorable?

The Necessities
My kit came with 5 pads, 5 liners, 10 regular tampons, and 10 super tampons.  When you sign up, you get to choose how many of each product you receive.  You can get all tampons, all pads, or a combination.  Le Parcel caters to your specific needs.

Yummmm!!!  Chocolate ;)
I received these delicious Ghiradelli Hazelnut Crisp Squares.

My Surprise was this AH-MAZING madrin lotus petal hand cream.
How cute is this box?

Even the inside of the box is adorable!

This hand cream was thick, creamy, luxurious, and smelled heavenly.
I love that it comes in a hand tube that you can throw in your expensive handbag and not have to worry about it leaking.  

The Verdict
All in all I am very pleased with this box and the subscription company. Not only can you customize the brands and products, but you can even decide when you would like it delivered.  What girl doesn't like a little extra pampering when Aunt Flo comes to town?  We all know she can be a cranky woman. ;)
