Ellie Pooh Small Notebook – $7.99

These are made in Sri Lanka from purified elephant dung and recycled consumer paper.  

Here’s the inside of the notebook:


I must admit that it is weird to touch something that was once elephant dung, but the concept it cool! I received the notebook with a whale tail on it, which is still available in the large notebook. The design is beautiful.


Acai and Coco Disc Bracelet

This is a beautiful bracelet. The beads are a gorgeous teal color and the disc is beautiful as well. This is a stretch bracelet so it should fit most! I tried it on, and while my wrists are on the smaller side, it still had quite a bit of room to go. This bracelet was made in Ecuador from dyed acai seeds and a polished coconut disc.


Aboriginal Earrings

These earrings are from Peru. They are made out of bamboo and have tribal designs painted on them. They are very light weight, and the detail is gorgeous! They are only painted on one side.  

Verdict: Since many of the items included in this box are handmade and not widely available online, I can’t provide an accurate value judgement for this box. You will usually receive two pieces of jewelry/accessories along with another small item. If that sounds like something you would love, I recommend that you try this box. You will likely get original, unique items that no one else around you will have (except subscribers, of course!).  

Have you tried Box of Blessings yet?

Bekki first discovered subscription boxes in 2014 and they quickly took over her life! (Not quite, but pretty close.) She started with POPSUGAR Must Have, then moved to Little Lace Box, Birchbox, Hamptons Lane…the rest was history. Her favorite product find is Beekman 1802 Fudge (so, so good) and her favorite boxes are Birchbox and Hamptons Lane…but she’s always looking for a new subscription to try!

  1. Cute box! And this was May’s box? I saw another site call this the June box so wasnt sure what to expect for this month’s box if it was this or something else 🙂

    • Hi, JoEtta! This was actually the June Box of Blessings. The May box featured Africa and July’s (your first!) will feature India. I hope you enjoy it and I always appreciate any feedback that you’d like to share –

      Blessings, Sarah
