Included in the box is a mini magazine with various articles, from Martin and Gina’s relationship, styles from the 90’s we’d rock now, to showcasing women entrepreneurs. This is a welcome departure from a two-sided info card.

Cast of Martin T-Shirt – Listed Retail Value $28

This lightweight cotton t-shirt is made in Nicaragua and has the character names of the cast from the 90’s TV show, “Martin”. The t-shirts say’s, Martin & Gina & Pam & Tommy & Cole. What a nice homage to the popular sitcom.

Mother Earth Leatherette with Clutch Strap – Listed Retail Price $40.00

This leatherette clutch with strap has a beautiful “mother earth” illustration on the front. There is a small zipper compartment inside the clutch and it measures at 9.4”x7.5” and is made from PU leather. I love that it came with a matching compact mirror. I can use this as a clutch or a make-up bag.

Mother Earth Leatherette Compact Mirror – Listed Retail Value $18.00

The compact mirror matches the leatherette clutch. The front and back of the compact are designed with PU leather with the “Mother Earth” design on both sides. The compact has two mirrors – 1×1 and 1×2 magnification. This may be my favorite item in the box along with the clutch.

Goddess Mini Headwrap & Hoops Set – Value $24.95

This matching headwrap and hoops set is from the Skirtsy shop. Brown Sugar Box collaborated with Skirtsy to bring their subscribers this special edition set. The ankara print is rich and vibrant and I’m always in need of a head wrap. I appreciated the styling tips they provided in the informational magazine. I’m always having trouble styling my headwraps so this is nice to have on hand.

Enclosed is a coupon for $20.00 off your first month of Skirtsy Box and 15% off storewide in their shop.

Verdict: This month’s Brown Sugar Box has a value of $120.95, which is an incredible deal for a $45.00 box ($39.95 a month + $4.95 shipping). This was a fun box and brought back memories of watching the sitcom Martin. I especially love how the items paired well and the theme flowed throughout the box. The items were curated perfectly, from the cast of Martin t-shirt and Shenehneh key chain to the 90’s flare of the matching hoop earrings and headwrap, and matching clutch and mirror. This all made for a well-coordinated box.

What do you think of this month’s Brown Sugar Box?

I liked the June box better than the July one. Seeing the June box is what convinced me to subscribe. I’m hoping the August box is better.

That keychain is hilarious and I loved Martin and still catch the repeats when I can.
I saw this box on FB and that head wrap and earrings set is so cute. As well as the clutch and matching mirror. I’m adding this one to my sub wish list.
