At Home with Nikki NStyle Subscription Box Review – March 2018

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. If you buy something, MSA may earn a commission. Read the full disclosure.

The NStyle Box is a bi-monthly home + lifestyle box from At Home with Nikki. If you are into organization, getting tips for cleaning your house, etc, this is your kind of box!

And the box ships in an outer cardboard box so you get this box looking perfectly pristine! Great for storage!

My Subscription Addiction pays for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

The Subscription Box: The NStyle Box from At Home with Nikki

The Cost: $35 (ships every other month)

The Products: Each NStyle Box contains home décor must-haves, DIY projects, cooking necessities, home organization inspiration, and lifestyle picks.

Ships to: US + Worldwide (shipping is free for US)

This box comes with a card detailing the items included:

Now, on to the items!

Turquoise Scarf – Estimated Value $15?

This scarf is light and slightly sheer – very beachy! (I’m estimating the value based on similar products on the Bazaar Anatolia site.)

Here it is on:

Cord Organizers – Estimated Value $10?

I have a few of these thanks to subscription boxes, but they are one of those items I can always find a use for.

Plus I never seem to find an organizer when I’m packing, so I’m going to put these in my suitcase now so it doesn’t happen again!

GoStak Blender Bottle – Retail Value $12.99

This bottle has three different sections so you can store vitamins, powders, supplements, snacks, etc.

And my favorite part? The materials are BPA-free and dishwasher-safe!

Stainless Steel Bottle – Estimated Value $10?

FYI – this looks like a S’well bottle design, but it is a generic design (no labels or care instructions anywhere on this bottle). It’s a stainless steel vacuum insulated bottle with a leak-proof cap. (I’m assuming it is hand-wash only.)

Capital Teas Chamomile Tea – Estimated Value $1?

This tea blend is an organic chamomile blend. At first, it seemed a little odd to me to get a single tea bag in this box, but it seems like this box has a travel organization vibe, and I can see how this fits.

Lastly, there are two glossy card extras from Nikki:

The first is a double-sided password tracker.

And the second is tips for tying a bow.

Verdict: I like a cohesive color theme in a box, and this Turquoise is bright and fun for Spring. That being said, this box wasn’t a huge hit for me, but I’ll use just about everything in the box. I wish Nikki still did her unboxing videos for her subscription boxes, it was always nice to hear a little more from her on why she picked the items.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, looks like subscriptions may be on waitlist at the moment.

Coupon? No coupons at this time.

Value Breakdown: At $35 for this box, you’re paying about $8.75 an item. (Not counting the tea bag.)

What do you think of the NStyle Box?

  1. FYI – This box is switching to a monthly candle box.

  2. Liz I love your dress!! Where is it from?

    • Thanks! It’s from Gwynnie Bee! The brand is Unique Vintage. Review coming soon-ish 🙂

  3. I was legitimately depressed when I opened my box. After all the delays in shipping trying to get this box because they were waiting for items to be received, I had hopes it would be something exciting! The directions on “how to tie a bow” really confused me. It had nothing to do with the theme. Also, I completely concur with the password card. TERRIBLE idea for security reasons. That was trashed immediately. These are usable items I guess, but I canceled my sub. This is only clutter and nothing exciting. I have these items or items similar already. I’m sad… waste of $35 when I wanted a good home box 🙁

    • Speaking of Home Boxes I have received 5 Sundae Home shipments so far and I have been very happy with the contents. The Feb.Box was themed “East Meets West” and the curation was spot on. I received a set of noodle bowls with matching spoons , chopsticks, 2 Chinese Tea Cups, small wooden tray, small tin of tea, a votive, framed print, metal tea infuser with holder and a vase. They are switching to a bi-monthly model with the March box. The cost is in the $50’s. I’ve mentioned it several time on MSA but I haven’t seen it reviewed here.

  4. Haha, who has only 9 passwords, anyway?

  5. Please, please, please for the love of everything you hold dear don’t write your personal accounts and passwords down on something like that card that’s included. That’s horribly unsecure and all around just a bad idea. Use a secure password application and password generator like LastPass, etc.

    • While I somewhat agree, I think we are seeing more and more that apps and websites have a tendency of having privacy breaches. It is probably safer to write passwords down on a piece of paper and hide the paper in a book you know no one is going to look in.

    • I disagree..I’d write them down then place them in our safe or lockbox and here is why: My mom passed away unexpectedly a few years ago and she had handled every thing…EVERY thing..for her and my dad. Dad had no idea how to make a phone call let alone retrieve a password or log in info let alone mom’s computer log on password. Luckily mom HAD written down her info and stored it in her safe..it saved me hours and hours of headaches in a time we were completely overwhelmed and grieving. By placing it in her safe no one other then someone very close to her had access.

      So my advice is—use the cards (or any other paper)..to track those important log in infomation–but store it ONLY somewhere safe such as a lockbox (buy at walmart for $20ish) or a safe so that in the event of an emergency there is a written record.

    • Couldn’t agree more. I was very dismayed to see something like that included in a sub box. It’s one thing for items in a sub box to miss the mark, it’s quite another for an item to encourage something that could have severe, negative consequences if utilized.

  6. I am a fan of Nikki’s youtube channels, so I recognize what she was going for here. In all her “what’s inside my bag” videos she color coordinates all her accessories in her purse, everything including the pens, pouches, water bottles, etc. If she had just called her box a lifestyle box without emphasizing home décor, organizing or hosting, then this would fit in better. She started her sub box to expand on her youtube success and to reach out to her viewers, who she calls her “friends” in her videos. I hope she is able to keep it up and her next box is an MSA crowd pleaser.

  7. I was so confused scrolling down this post. I was sitting here waiting for pictures of decor to appear and they just…didn’t appear. Not sure what happened this month, but the box contents don’t have much to do with the home.

  8. Exceptionally underwhelming. Glad I didn’t waste $35.

    • Sadly, I have to agree. Her first couple of boxes were superb. But it seems that since then it’s been downhill. There is nothing “special” about this box.

  9. I got this box and it made me a little sad. I had such high hopes for this box. I was hoping for more home items. I think the knockoff s’well bottle made it feel cheap to me. I’ve unsubscribed.

  10. Yeah I’m confused, the intro says if you enjoy organization, tips for cleaning your home, etc. This has nothing to do with that.

  11. I agree Yuan. I loved the December box review and signed up for a home box. This one wasn’t horrible but I expected a different box.

  12. I thought her curation tended to lean towards home decor which is what the subscription world needs more of.

  13. I just read the other nstyle review and I can’t help but feel that the curation is/was lazy. Everything can be found on Amazon for a cheaper price, and it just seems thrown in last minute. If you’re going to include a blender bottle staks, might as well throw in a blender bottle too instead of a knockoff swell one, since they were made to be compatible and minimize space.
    I like the design and what the box is about, but I had higher hopes.

    • I find that her boxes are hit and miss. I’ve seen some good boxes but will be followed by the bad boxes. At the end of the day she’s trying to make money and putting high value items in the box doesn’t give good profit. I hope she can negotiate some deals with small business owners so we don’t generic amazon items

    • Agree…a knockoff Swell bottle is not good.
