Our Subscription Box Favorites for January!
We’ve started a new monthly post highlighting our favorite discoveries from subscription boxes! Here are our favorite items from the past month:
The Cost: On sale for $15.99! (originally $88)
From: Trendsend by Evereve
Why I love it: I like this dress so much because it’s a buttery soft fabric that feels high quality. So comfortable, so warm. And these sleeves! They’re definitely on trend with the bell shape, and the feathery fringe around the upper arms is just fun. It’s also my favorite shade of grey, which is a favorite color of mine to wear.

The Item: Exclusive Sarah Sherman Samuel x Tribe Alive Table Runner/Wall Hanging
Why I liked it: This 100% cotton table runner couldn’t be a better match for my decor style. I love the versatile, minimalist design and the neutral colors. It’s beautifully (and ethically) made, too—I have a feeling it’ll be in my linen collection for a long time!

The Item: Oatmeal Cookie Granola
The Cost: $9.50 ($18.99 for box)
Why I love it: This granola mix includes a subtly sweet cacao and cashew butter base granola, a dash of cinnamon spiciness, toasted organic coconut for some creamy flavor and crunch, and dried cranberries for that tart pop. So good with yogurt in the morning, and it tastes just like a real oatmeal cookie!

The Item: Late 1960s/Early 1970s Vintage Dress
The Cost: Undetermined, though the subscription is $35/month, which includes free shipping
From: CHC Vintage
Why I Love It: I love bold prints and bright colors, and this fits me very well, also. I actually wore this to work the day we took this photo and I got some compliments. With tights, it is seasonally-appropriate for winter in Georgia, as well.

The Item: 2018 Mini Desk Calendar
The Cost: $15.00
Why I love it: This mini calendar is the right size to fit in the corner of my desk. I love the stand’s sleek form and copper finish. It has a chic design that differs from the standard desk calendars I have had in the past. I will need to invest in 12-month calendar sheets for next year so that I can use the stand again.

The Cost: $5.75
Why I love it: First of all, I’m in love with the bright yellow color of this candle. It just glows! Its scent is also lovely. It’s a scent is a blend of sandalwood, dragon’s blood (new to me!), frankincense, and saffron essential oils, and the included info slip offers directions for how to charge your candle with positive energy. The concept is so positive, and I like the idea of adding intention into the items in my home.

The Item: Basic Outfitters Socks
The Cost: $12.00
Why I love it: These are the perfect winter socks; they’re on the thicker side which will keep my feet toasty and they pair perfectly with both dress shoes and boots – very versatile! The color combo is perfect for me, too – I love all shades of blues, especially when they’re paired together like this!

Jessica Hapak’s Favorite:
The Item: Birchbox Dry Body Brush
The Cost: $10 (currently out of stock, but click here to join the waitlist for when it comes back in stock!)
From: Birchbox The Best Bath Ever Kit (Coupon: Try any of these free gift with purchase coupons on orders of $35 or more!) And don’t forget your free mystery sample pack on orders of $35 or more!)
Why I love it: When I originally reviewed the Best Bath Ever Kit, I chose the Juara body oil as my favorite item from the box. However, the more I use this dry body brush, the more I love it. When I used it (as directed. Please take my word for it and use it as directed.), I noticed that it made my skin feel a lot smoother, and honestly, my legs felt invigorated after using it. The theory behind dry brushing is that, besides smoother skin, it helps with vascular circulation and lymphatic drainage. I am not a medical expert, but I really think that is happening when I use this brush! Plus, I had a really nasty bruise from slipping and falling on ice and using this brush really helped to break up the bruise so it went away a lot quicker compared to the usual duration of my bruises. I am currently waiting for Birchbox to bring it back in stock so I can order one for my mom!

The Item: Eiwa Marshmallow Black Sesame
The Cost: Buy 2 bags for $11.99
Why I love it: This new-to-me snack blew my mind with its delightful marshmallow texture and rich, not-too-sweet black sesame filling! It tasted so fresh, so unlike anything I’ve ever tried before, and now it’s safe to say I’m obsessed with Japanese snacks.

The Item: “New Beginnings” by Mike Ellis, 9 x 12 Offset Print
The Cost: Papirmass costs $14/month
Why I love it: I really love this image and it happens to match some artwork I had set aside for my home office, which just got a fresh paint job and is ready to re-decorate. I really look forward to this box every month and swear each one is my new favorite!

The Item: CHC Vintage Accessories Box
The Cost: $55 for five hand-picked vintage accessories
From: CHC Vintage
Why I love it: CHC truly provides a customized service with their clothing box as well, but I am an accessory fiend and this box hit every mark for me! The selections in this box were so incredibly well tailored to my style through their detailed survey that was provided to me as a new subscriber. I truly adored every single piece, especially the leopard pillbox hat and the beaded purse. I have already used both accessories a few times since receiving them. Also, you can’t beat $55 for five quality vintage pieces! That is a great deal, especially since that includes shipping. They even included an awesome ring dish for me as well, which was such a thoughtful touch!

Why I love it: This organic tea has a great flavor- a subtle hint of mint with strawberry. It is used to support a healthy pregnancy and can even shorten the duration of labor! I would drink this tea even if the benefits for pregnancy weren’t there!

The Item: Moodibars
The Cost: $6.50
From: The PMS Package
Why I love it: Ever since I had these delicious little chocolate squares, my love for chocolate has quadrupled. My favorite flavor was the “Flirty” bar because it was “strawberry champagne”. YUM!

The Item: Moby – Play Vinyl LP
From: Vinyl Me, Please
Why I love it: This is one of the first deliveries of an album that I pretty much ignored when it was released. I had a blast giving it a spin and was pleasantly surprised by how good it is!

The Item: Linhart Fluoride Toothpaste
The Cost: $10
From: New Beauty Test Tube
Why I love it: Toothpaste is such a basic item that I wouldn’t think of it as a monthly favorite typically, but this one is pretty fab! It is the perfect mint flavor, the formula designed to help strengthen enamel and prevent decay, and the best part? I love the packaging! It looks great on our bathroom counter!
