Aqua Pouch Speaker – Value $20

This speaker was our favorite item in the box. The pouch is touch screen compatible so you can change songs in the shower!

The Fancy Wayfarer – Value $30

I like the matte black look of these sunglasses – I just have so many sunglasses from various Fancy subscription boxes that I may end up gifting these!

Shark Bracelet – Value $20

Game Day’s Moisturizer – Sample

When I saw these two items I was wondering why Fancy sent me men’s products. Then I looked at my Fancy account and realized my Fancy subscription box was set for Men instead of Women. (I changed it – moving forward I should get jewelry that fits!) Since this bracelet is too big for me I’ll be gifting it!

Veggiechop – Value $20

This will definitely come in handy for smaller vegetable chopping jobs that I’d rather not get the food processor out for. Also, I love that it’s BPA free and dishwasher safe. So far I’ve been very impressed with Chef’n products (we sampled a few tools in the latest Tyler Florence Fancy Box).

Chef’n Burger Machine – Value $15

This burger press is pretty slick – you can adjust it to form three different burger sizes. I’m not sure how often we’d use this, so I’ll probably pass it along to a friend who loves to grill!

Verdict: Aside from me getting the men’s bracelet and moisturizer (which is totally my fault) I was very happy with the July Fancy Box. The aqua pouch is definitely my favorite item in this month”s box – what was your favorite item?

  1. I received the aqua pouch in pink if anyone who received the green or blue wants to trade. I seem to have an allergic reaction to all things pink. (I know I’m an odd girl). Fancy won’t let me exchange even though I stated in my settings for the original box not to send me pink color options. It’s clear they don’t read those.

  2. Right – that shark’s tooth necklace with no clasp – so how do we fasten it? Do we just tie it in a knot or something? Mine’s all tangled up anyway.

    I’m re-gifting everything in my box except the sunnies. My mom will love the kitchen stuff.

    I don’t know what to think about this box anymore. I too am excited that it shipped earlier this month. The stuff is cool, but I usually end up re-gifting most of it.

    This box is like a boyfriend I need to break up with but can’t. :\

    • It’s a long necklace, so you don’t need a clasp. Just slip it over your head once you get it untangled. Mine was tangled too, but I eventually untangled it without much issue.

  3. I want those sunglasses and that bracelet.

  4. I was curious to see if they actually send different items according to the categories you choose, so I ordered 2 boxes, one with the categories “men”, “women”, “sports & outdoors” and the other with “home”, “gadgets”, and “kids”. I received basically the same items with some differentiation.

    My first box had the hamburger press, veggichop, shark necklace, shower pouch (pink), and sunglasses in tortoise.

    The second box included another hamburger press, another shower pouch (green), another pair of the sunglasses (black), a cute magnetic comic book photo frame with customizable thought bubbles, and the shave gel sample. It was supposed to have the shark bracelet but it was missing. I emailed Fancy and am awaiting a reply.

    I really likes my first box. I thought it had some great useful items and the necklace was actually pretty cute. I can only wear prescription sunglasses, so I will add them to our raffle package at our gym’s health & fitness fair. I thought they were really nice though…definitely better than the $135 glasses I received from FabFitFun!

    The second box was okay. It was pretty repetitive. I really don’t need 2 burger presses, so that will go in the raffle as well, along with the second pair of sunglasses. I really like the shower pouch so I’ll keep both. Fingers crossed that they send me something to replace my missing item.

  5. My box (which is set to men, as I am one) didn’t have the burger maker, instead I got the salad spinner and a book about mexico. The shark bracelet is huge, it falls off my wrist even when I’m making a fist and I have it as tight as I can go. I think I’m done with this box. This is the 3rd time where I see what you got vs. what I got and I keep getting screwed on the good stuff.

    Love your websight though.

  6. I love the veggiechop! I need to look into getting one for myself

  7. I really liked the box as well. The womens box got a shark tooth necklace that I really love and will definitely wear with some of my summer wardrobe. The only downside was that the chain was all kinds of knotted and there is no clasp to the chain so I spent about 30 minutes trying to unknot it! not fun.

  8. I got a woman’s necklace and I didn’t even have woman as one of my categories this month!
