Alexa Penavega Quarterly Subscription Box Review #AVQ01
Alexa Penavega is one of Quarterly’s latest celebrity curators. Quarterly has been making some changes lately and focusing more on their most popular boxes, so I’m not sure if there will be a second box from Alexa, but I still wanted to review the first one.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Alexa Penavega for Quarterly
The Cost: $50 a box
The Products: Items selected by Alexa Penavega.
Ships to: US and Worldwide.
Each Quarterly box comes with a letter from the curator detailing the items included and why they selected them. For her first mailing Alexa wanted to include “some fun and sweet ways to cherish all your own memories.”
Fotobit Frames (3 pack) – Value $45
This Fotobit framing system is new to me, but after looking at examples of how it works, I can’t wait to try it. (It’s a modular interlocking system so you can create different kinds of wall art with your Instagram photos).
Alexa also included a signed photo.
Prinstagram 24 Free Prints – Value $12
To go with the frames, Alexa also included a code for 24 free prints from Printstagram.
Skittles – Value $4
These seemed a little random to me, but Alexa included them because they are her favorite.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $60. I’m not super impressed with the value considering this box cost $50. On the other hand, I’ll definitely use the Printstagram prints and the frames, so I did get my money’s worth. I think this subscription is probably best for Alexa super fans, since it seems like a box of her favorite things. (And I didn’t put a value on the signed picture, but I’m sure some would!)
