Adam Lister Godfather Print – Value $40
This print measures 6 X 6 inches, and it is printed on cardstock. Adam Lister is new to me, and I enjoyed looking at his other work – I recommend checking out the Bob Ross print!
Turbo X Quadcopter – Value $60
My husband and I decided to go outside and try out this mini drone – not the best idea on a very windy day. The good news – this little drone has a lot of power, and was up 30 feet in the air almost instantly. The bad news – I don’t think we’ll ever see it again!
So – I recommend using it indoors, or in a big field on a windless day!
Breakaway Matcha Coldbrew Original – 30 grams Value $28
I’m excited to try this! Here are the instructions for making it:
Making Coldbrew is EASY. There are two main methods:
Method 1: Take a mason jar, water bottle, or any clean 16oz. jar/bottle with a cap, and fill it halfway with really icy water (we like to put a bunch of ice in a pitcher, fill it with filtered water, and let it get REALLY cold). Add 1 level teaspoon matcha, shake vigorously, and pour into glasses. Or just drink right from the jar.
Method 2: The “Blender Bottle.” Simply fill it halfway with ice (with the blender ball/sieve thingy on the bottom), add a level teaspoon of matcha, fill with filtered water, and shake vigorously. That’s it!
Richer Poorer CoolMax Crew Sock – Value $12
I’m a little weird – I don’t currently subscription to any sock subscription boxes, but I love getting socks in non-sock subscription boxes! Richer Poorer is a great brand too. These Cool Max Crew socks are pretty thick for summer, but I’ll use them!
Redbeard Kevin Rose Citrus Hefeweizen Beer Soap – 2 oz Value $4
This soap smells so good. (I love pretty much every natural soap I’ve ever smelled). It doesn’t smell like beer to me though.
Ursa Major Face Wipes (5) Value $4.80
I love all things Ursa Major (it is a great men’s natural grooming line, and pretty much all of the products are unisex).
Verdict: This box has a value of about $150. I’m not sure exactly what to make of it, and I think that’s probably because I may not be the target demographic for this box. I was also assuming that most of the items in this box would be tech-related like his first box, so that is throwing me off a little too.
That being said, we’ll use almost everything in the box, and I’m hoping the Coldbrew Matcha becomes my new summer drink – I’ve heard good things about its health benefits!
