Rosario Dawson Quarterly Box Review #18902
The Rosario Dawson Quarterly Box was probably one of the boxes I was most excited to get my hands on this seasons – it includes 31 items for an advent calendar theme!
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

The Cost: $50 a box (ships every quarter)
The Products: Rosario’s picks: “beautiful, creative works meant to inspire).
Ships to: US, (Canada extra $20 fee, International extra $30 fee).
Studio 189 Oversized Tote – Value $250?
I couldn’t find this exact same tote on Studio 189’s site, but I linked to one that I believe is the same size. This is my favorite item in the box. I love the colors and the extra large size is so useful. Plus the straps are reinforced, so I think I could carry a lot with this! Also, the mission behind this brand is wonderful:
STUDIO ONE EIGHTY NINE is a social enterprise created by Rosario Dawson and Abrima Erwiah that consist of creatives that seeks to provide a platform to help promote and curate African and African-inspired content through an ecommerce shopping site, a supporting agency and an artisan produced fashion collection, called FASHION RISING COLLECTION, launched in support of V-Day’s One Billion Rising. We focus on creating opportunities for empowerment, education and employment of artisans and creatives.Together we represent countries all over Africa and its Diaspora. Created by Rosario Dawson and Abrima Erwiah, the mission of Studio One Eighty Nine and the idea for Fashion Rising, took shape following a trip with V-Day in February, 2011, through Kenya, Burundi and Rwanda to Bukavu in the Democratic Republic of Congo for the opening of the City of Joy.
Coach Double Zip Leather Wristlet – Value $68
You can’t go wrong sending a beautiful and classic leather Coach wristlet in a subscription box! This is one of those items that I really like but also know it would make an amazing gift, so I’m not sure if I’m keeping it yet.
Studio 189 Coasters – Value $15?
Occult Crimes TaskForce Playing Cards – Value $10?
Under Armour Hair Ties – Value $10
The coasters and playing cards are really interesting – but I can’t find them for sale online so I’m just guessing on the values. And the Under Armour hair ties will come in handy!
Top Five Photo
Studio 189 bookmark & postcard
Black and White photography magnet
I like that Rosario always includes items from her latest projects – I really want to see Top Five!
Honest Hand Soap in Lemongrass – Value $5
Honest Fruit + Veggie Wash – Value $7
I love Honest products so I’m always happy to have more. I’m pretty surprised that these items arrived in perfect condition though! Normally when I order through the Honest Company the hand soap is packaged in its own plastic bag to account for some leakage in shipping – which almost always happens!
Studio 189 Sunglasses Bag – Value $30?
Bobble Sport Bottle – Value $11
I already received a bobble sport bottle from the Bianca Jade Quarterly box (and thanks to subscription boxes I have more bottles than I will ever need), so this one will go to a friend. The sunglasses case I will use though – I like the bright blue colors!
Daredevil Mini Poster
My husband and I watch Arrow and The Flash, so we’re looking forward to NetFlix releasing this series!
I’m not much of a musical person, so this is going to my cousin who I know will absolutely love it!
Stuffed Peppers Recipe and a Wooden Spoon
(We’re getting into the stocking stuffer/advent calendar little gift and item portion of the box, so I won’t be commenting on everything).
ProBCAA Supplement, Blowfish for Hangovers, and Honest Co. Organic Healing Balm
This healing balm is great, and my mom loves it even more than I do, so this is going in her gift pile! (And maybe this hangover “cure” will come in handy on January 1st!)
More of the little toys and games included.
And I saved the treat for last – Henry Lambertz Premium Chocolates and Cookies – Value $15?
These look delicious – I will be gifting them tomorrow!
Verdict: This was a really fun box to go through. I like that there are some really great quality pieces, some practical pieces, some silly pieces, and some box exclusives. Plus the value is well over $400! And if that wasn’t good enough, the proceeds of this box go toward getting water filters for cleaner water in West Africa!
