Woman Up Box’s booklet is a glossy tri-fold. I was very impressed with how well-thought out the booklet was made. This set the tone for the entire box. The theme for August is “Get the Party Started.”
Each item in the box is photographed in the booklet. There is detailed information offered about each item including the retail price and in some cases websites and information about the woman artisan who created the item.
The back of the trifold shows the Woman Up mascot named Dolly. It also shares the charity selected this summer (Dress for Success Worldwide) that will receive 10% of the Woman Up monthly profits. I think it’s wonderful that a box with a mission to lift women up and support women run companies and female artisans also donates a percentage of their proceeds to women-focused charities.
Woman Up Box includes a Lift Up card with ideas for lifting up girls, colleagues and even yourself. I enjoyed reading their suggestions.
Druzy Cuff Bracelet – Value $15.00
This stunning Druzy cuff bracelet is perfect for a party themed box. The sparkle is so festive. The bracelet is adjustable and came in a little drawstring pouch. I’m surprised this beautiful bracelet from Etsy seller Designs by Katie Leigh is only $15, I would have priced it much higher if I had to guess. I love it!
I’m So Happy It’s Happy Hour by Anne Taintor – Value $8.00 on Amazon (retail price $14.95)
I’m a huge Anne Taintor fan. I love her humorous magnets, pads, and other assorted items. I was delighted to receive this book. I didn’t know she had a cocktail recipe book with her trademark retro photos with catchy sayings. I haven’t tried the recipes yet, but I’m definitely getting a kick out of the recipe names!
Moon Valley Organics Foot Scrub (1.7 oz.) – Value $12.99
I love getting full-size items in this box! This peppermint foot scrub smells so bright and is made with organic safflower, coconut, lavender oils among others. It left my feet feeling revitalized and moisturized, just want you need after your feet have been jammed into heels at a party. To note for swaps: this tube came sealed.
Flamingo Drink Coasters – Value $14.00
These flamingo coasters are offset printed on heavyweight coaster stock. While they are reusable, they aren’t meant to last forever. The box came with 12 and I do feel $14.00 seems a bit steep, but they sure are summery and festive.
Germack Roasted and Salted Fancy Mixed Nuts (9 oz.) – Value $6.99
I love salted nuts when I’m at a cocktail party and this mix was delicious. There was a mix of whole cashews, filberts, pecans, almonds and Brazil nuts. They were perfectly salted and a nice treat on our family hike today.
Green Striped Paper Straws – Listed Value $4.50
I’ve gotten quite a few packages of paper straws due to my subscription box addiction, but they always come in handy. I like the green and white pattern and this large pack will last for some time.
Verdict: This was a fun theme and I felt they did a great job curating party items. There was a nice balance of beauty, lifestyle, edible and accessory items again. I have to say the box felt a little less packed this month and I wish they had added one more item, like maybe a fun bottled cocktail mixer or a lip gloss to wear to a party. Regardless, I enjoy this subscription because I discover new women Etsy sellers and woman-owned businesses each month. I also appreciate their mission to lift women up and give back to charities like Dress for Success. The value this month came to over $61 (using the Amazon price for the book) which is over the $49.95 monthly cost (free shipping to the US) and I’m pleased with that.
