YAY! – My box came today and for me it was a winner
Spoiler alert if you want a surprise box – STOP reading
Ellen & James Round Basket Bag (75) in Plain weave with leather clasp. First the bag is adorable and comes with a muslin sleeve for storage. Both smell like a bonfire. If you look at the Ellen & James website they explain that the material Ata is a reed, making the material strong and durable. The pieces are all “smoked” over coconut husks as part of the drying process, which adds beautiful patina and leaves the bag with a slight natural scent that disappears over time
Supergoop everyday sunscreen (SPF50) one ounce $10 on Supergoop site. I use this brand
Soko Sawa Linked Drop Earrings Gold Black ($54 sold out at Nordstrom Rack for $24.97
I cannot wear heavy earrings because of stretching. These look substantial but are super light and are post back. Handmade in Kenya Approx. 2″ L x 0.6″ W. Brass and repurposed horn. http://www.shopsoko.com – ethically made modern jewelry – item ss1700037B1
Donni Charm Gigi Seersucker Skinny Scarf (Retail $57 Sold out at Nordstrom Rack for 19.97. White with beige stripe. Shows you can use it as a hair tie, in place of a necklace or tie it around the had or handbag. This is the item I am least excited about. I have short hair and don’t wear too many scarves but hey I live in FL so year round item.
Lipstick from Lipstick Queen in the shade of Frog Prince – .12 size 19.70 at Amazon and highly rated. Nina says this shade is especially fun as in the tube it’s green but once you swipe it on, it turns a beautiful Rosey pink. This is a sheer color and I like it. Ulta and QVC have the same brand but different sizes. https://www.amazon.com/Lipstick-Queen-Prince-Women-Ounce/dp/B00XQ9IRP2?th=1
So even with discounts it is a value of $150. Plus coupons for additional discounts (Soko 20%) (Lipstick Queen 15%) and (Ellen & James 15%) on future purchases.
Once my bag airs out I will be very happy
