Set of Two We Can Do It! Pint Glasses - Value $11.95
It's hard to think of a more iconic, inspiring woman in art than Rosie the Riveter (though if I'm inspiring myself to chill the heck out, you know Mona Lisa is my girl...). I love the idea of adding these glasses to my cabinet. What a fun thing to use for a gals' night in, or to help my morning smoothie feel even more empowering. I also really appreciate that this is a Smithsonian-approved, real glass set. The graphic might be a bit of a novelty, but the quality certainly isn't.
Batiste Instant Hair Refresh Dry Shampoo, 1.6 fl oz. - Value $4.32 (Buy a 2 pack for $8.64)
This oily-haired gal loves a good dry shampoo, and Batiste is probably the best brand I've tried. This spray can is small enough to tuck into a purse or the side pocket of a backpack, and the formula has a breezy, pretty, floral scent. It's tempting to want to douse your hair in this stuff, but a little actually goes a long way (in my experience). I spritzed a bit on my roots and gave it a quick brush through the rest of my hair. It starts out as a chalky-looking powder, but it becomes transparent as it absorbs into your 'do. Plus, the fragrance makes me feel a bit fresher. I love riding my bike but dread my helmet-smushed, slightly sweaty hair (especially right now when it's not long enough to pull back or easily pin into anything cute). So this product is so nice to have on hand.
On-the-Go Lunch/Salad Container with Separator Tray - Value $10.00?
I couldn't find any branding on this container, so I just took a stab at the value I listed. I love containers like this—this one is kind of a hybrid between a standard salad-sized plastic container and a bento box. It's the size of a big bowl and comes with a lid that snaps very securely on the sides. (It took some serious strength to unhinge 'em.) I love that there's a fork that snaps right into the lid! So convenient. Inside, there's a removable tray that you can use to hold fixins for the salad (or whatever else you might have) inside the bowl, or just other snacks. There's also a small container for dressing that also pops into place on this inner green tray. I'm not sure if this guy is dishwasher or microwave safe (I'd bet not, based on the weight of the plastic), but it sure is handy. There's no excuse not to bring a salad to the office, now!
Unibis Cashew Cookies, 5.29 oz - Value $1.43
Just this morning I got my first pumpkin spice latte of the season, and I'll tell you what—the cashew cookie I ate along with it couldn't have been a more perfect complement. These cookies are foil-wrapped for freshness, so they come out crisp, light, and crunchy. They go down like a lighter pecan cookie—there's more crispy crunch, but the toasty, nutty, vanilla-tinged taste is the same. I'm starting to get very into cashews lately (I swapped cashew butter in for my usual peanut butter recently, and I don't think I'll ever go back), and I'm happy to say that in cookie form, these do-it-all nuts don't disappoint!
Two Pairs of HEAD QWick-Dry Performance Socks - Value $10.00?
Surprisingly, I had a tough time finding these socks online. But based on the men's HEAD socks I saw, I'm guessing that the cost of this two-pack of women's wicking socks is about $10.00. These are a little cutesy, colorwise, for my taste, but boy do I love how they feel on my feet. They're super sturdy and feel like they'll last far longer than the usual bulk-bag ankle socks I wear to workout in. For how tough they feel, they're actually really soft and comfy. The arches are reinforced with some kind of more plastic-y fiber (in other words, it feels more like polyester than cotton), but not in a way that's uncomfortable at all. Fall runs, here I come!
Verdict: Peaches and Petals might just cost $20.00, but I was really happy with the almost $38.00 worth of products I received. I like that everything in the box was useful and aesthetically pretty or cute to look at, too! Of course, these might not be the items I pick out for myself at the store—I might choose a slightly high-quality salad container, I'd probably pick a more neutral color for socks, and I don't know if I would've reached for the Rosie the Riveter glasses on my own. But I'm pretty sure I'll be putting everything to use. It feels a lot like getting gifts at the holidays—I might not have had these items on my wishlist, but now that I have them, I'm pleasantly surprised!
