Enclosed is an info card with the products featured in the box, a “My Monthly Memo” to-do list, and their “VIP Memo Markdown” – a spotlight on a brand that will be featured with a “Memo” markdown. This month they partnered with Enclothe Boutique and members receive 15% off their dresses. Also, there is a Gold Pineapple Pin attached to the info card to accessorize my favorite outfit. Pineapples have been the latest trend in subscription boxes and this is the second pin I have received. The last one I received was in the PopSugar Mystery Box.
Weathered Anchor Stripe Pocket Note – Value $4.95
This 3” x 4” note pad has a magnetic closure and is the appropriate size for my handbag or pocket. It has 75 blank sheets with a design of a blue anchor in the lower right- hand corner. I love receiving items that have nautical designs it reminds me of my son who’s in the Navy.
Macaroon Erasers – Value $6.00
These macaroon erasers are too cute and they look so real! There are 12 erasers in the colors, lime, yellow, pink, and aqua-blue. The erasers are about an inch in diameter, sturdy and get the job done.
Black Jeweled Pencil – Value $1.00?
This black pencil has a purple jewel at the bottom where the eraser would be. Sleek, thin, and a touch of bling to an ordinary pencil. It would have been nice to receive a pack of pencils but then again, I use pens more than pencils and I may have overlooked using them. The website I found didn’t have the price so my value is a guess.
Summer Breeze Fragrance Sachet – Value $1.99 (buy a set of 4 for $7.99)
This floral, citrusy scented sachet on a hanger is small enough to hang anywhere. I can hang in my closet, bathroom, or tuck in my dresser drawer or they suggest to keep with stationery to add a light scent to my letters. I may hang this in my bathroom near my towels.
Debossed Leatherette Journal-Watermelon – Value $14.00
I have a few journals and some I have gifted to friends so another journal is not too exciting for me but it’s appropriate for this box. I would love to see a guided journal or a passwords journal (do people still keep track of their passwords, nowadays?) in a future box. This bound leatherette covered journal is gold foil embossed on the front to look like watermelon seeds and is a nice touch. The journal has 160 lined pages with a watermelon on the top of each page as well as, along with green page edges to complete the watermelon theme. The journal measures at 5 9/16” W x 8 1/8” H.
Tropical Mango Green Tea Mints, 0.88 oz. – Value $1.66
This pocket size packet of mints has a menthol taste and left a cooling sensation in my mouth. There were hints of a fruit flavor but I couldn’t detect the mango taste. They are about 40 mints at 5 calories each and some of the ingredients consist of mango and citrus extracts, organic matcha green tea, peppermint oil and xylitol.
Verdict: This month’s curation was creative and useful. The items, as usual, are on par with what I would need at my desk: note pads, journal, breath mints, a sachet to keep my area smelling fresh and the cutest macaroon erasers to go with the pencil I received. It can get boring having the same old desk accessories and this box makes sure I get a variety of items that are never dull. Trendy Memo has a value of $29.60, which is below the cost of the box and doesn’t include the bonus pineapple pin.
