tail-mail-may-earrings

"Seashell Earrings" by Made by Mermaids - Value $14

These are so pretty, and perfect for summer! Plus they're made from real seashell!

tail-mail-may-spray

"Beachin' Hair" Sea Salt Spray by Wildflower Beauty by Jessica - Value $6

I can't believe it's already sea salt spray season again. I still have quite a bit left from last year, so I may pass this along to my niece. It's true, it does make my hair look fantastic, but it's so drying!

tail-mail-may-crown

"Flower Crown" by Weaving Daisies - Value $15

OK, please don't judge me, but it's true confession time... I was thrilled to get a flower crown in my box! I feel like I should be too old for this kind of thing, but the fact of the matter is that I have mermaid hair. I don't have a mermaid face, or body, or swimming ability, but I definitely have mermaid hair! And I've never had a flower crown, and I've always wanted one! And now I have one, and I love it. I have no idea where I will ever wear it, but I don't care. It's awesome.

tail-mail-may-coupon

Tail Mail also included this 25% off coupon code for The Weaving Daisies.

Verdict: I wasn't so sure I would like it, but Tail Mail is great! I really liked the earrings and I LOVE the flower crown! I would enjoy the sea salt spray if I didn't already have a lot of it, but now I'm wondering if I should try it and see if it's less damaging than other brands. Anyway, I think at $15 this box is a wonderful value and would be fun for women of all ages.

What do you think of Tail Mail? You want a flower crown, too, don't you?

Starting at $14.99

1. I know someone who would looove this box, and at this pricepoint, I can actually afford to gift her this box.

2. I had no idea sea salt sprays, in general, were damaging. I had to Google it – thanx for the tip! 🙂

What a fun box! Also, you are hilarious! You should totally rock that flower crown wherever and whenever you please. I know you said you are a musician before. Your next gig (performance?) seems like the perfect opportunity to wear it to me.

OMG Yes. I want a flower crown too! I’ve hankered after one for ages but haven’t bought a flower crown because I’m a grown woman.
I kind of think I could pull off the Weaving Daisies crown as it’s fairly subtle, as crowns go. lol
Thanks for the review Anna. I’ll keep tabs on this subscription with a view to signing up once I’ve moved house.
