Our Subscription Box Favorites for July! (NSFW)
UPDATE – FYI this list includes one item that is not safe for viewing at work. We’ll make sure to identify if this happens in future posts.
We’ve started a new monthly post highlighting our favorite discoveries from subscription boxes! Here are our favorite items from the past month:
The Item: Face the Sun Dress
The Cost: $45
From: Golden Tote
Why I love it: It’s a stretch knit material so it’s very comfortable and easy to wear, and the print and colors are so pretty! I also like the modest neckline and longer short sleeves. The defined waist is flattering, too. It has an asymmetrical hemline, which isn’t always my taste but in this case, it just works.

The Item: Club Tub Bath Bomb
The Cost: Box exclusive — buy the Birthday Box for $40 + shipping
Why I love it: I love bath bombs, but I thought I had seen it all until I received my Bath Sorbet Birthday Box. Y’all, this bath bomb LIGHTS UP LIKE A REAL NIGHTCLUB! IN MY BATHTUB. I still can’t handle how amazing that experience was. The LED light show was only the cherry on top of an amazing bath art masterpiece, which is probably my favorite part of using a bath bomb! I don’t think there will be a better bath bomb that can top this, but I will spend the rest of my days searching nonetheless.

The Item: Pomelo Paradis by Atelier Cologne (9 mL)
The Cost: Estimated Value $22.50 (buy 30 mL for $75)
Why I love it: I’m not usually into fruity scents but this one is fruity without being too sweet, and the grapefruit is a bit sharper and/or more distinguishable than the lime, bergamot, and mandarin you usually find in citrus-based fragrances. I have reached for this almost every single day before work, even though I have literally dozens of perfumes to choose from. It also seems appropriate for summer.

The Item: Hot Wheels Loop Launcher Set
The Cost: Listed Value $9.99
Why I love it: It’s the summer of Hot Wheels at our house! The neighborhood kids have been coming by every couple of days to play and build elaborate track setups on our front porch, shooting cars off of our stairs and into the yard. They definitely love this loop launcher the most right now, which is a lot easier to get cars to go around than the other loop that has zero assistance. 😉 I really love how this subscription has helped us build this track collection over time, and it’s clear how much kids of all ages really love playing with it, too. Physics in action!

The Cost: $8.99
Why I love it: This USA made professional-grade stain remover is powerful and effective. I used it to get a stubborn stain off my carpet, and it worked like magic. It has no peroxide, chlorine bleach, or phosphates. The stain remover works on carpets, apparel, and furniture.

The Item: Mermaid Necklace
The Cost: Estimated Retail Value – $16 (based on similar item)
From: Willow Lane
Why I love it: When I was four, I informed my mom that I wanted to be a mermaid when I grew up – and I’m still wondering why I didn’t move forward with that as an occupation! I absolutely love the beach, and this necklace keeps that vibe so close to my heart all the time. Silver is my metal of choice for jewelry, so it fits right in with my other pieces, and the super-dainty size allows me to wear it every day; either by itself or layered with another necklace.

The Item: Daily Harvest Cinnamon Protein + Banana Activated Breakfast Cup
The Cost: $7.49 (as part of the 12 cup box, or less with larger boxes)
Why I love it: You probably know Daily Harvest makes smoothies, but did you know they do other foods, too? This “activated” breakfast is a delectable combination of oats, pea protein, chickpeas (yes, chickpeas, my new favorite breakfast food), cacao nibs, and other goodness, which, when heated up with some almond milk, basically transforms into a warm hug in a bowl. It took barely any time to make, filled me up, and made me feel like a super healthy cool girl eating her fancy superfoods.

The Item: Tin Feather Velvet Lipstick in Velour
The Cost: Retail Value $15.81 (currently on sale for $7.87!!!)
From: Motherhood Survival Box
Why I love it: This is a handmade, organic, and vegan matte lipstick. The name Velvet is fitting as it felt so soft and luxurious on my lips! This gives me just a subtle hint of color and is incredibly moisturizing. I love that it smells like shea butter and they say it’s safe enough to kiss your babies with! This has definitely become my new go-to lipstick to swipe on whenever I head out the door!

The Item: Indio Arrowhead Necklace
The Cost: Estimated Value $64.99
From: My Meraki Box
Why I love it: I haven’t taken this chic necklace off! It’s not something I’ve ever seen before or thought of wearing, and it’s the perfect little “edge” for my preppy style. It goes with everything, draws tons of compliments, and frankly, is just a welcome new addition to my [extensive] jewelry collection! It’s hard to take me totally by surprise with a piece of jewelry, but I am obsessed with this quartz and silver arrowhead!

The Cost: Buy a 12 pack for $34.95
Why I love it: This ginger cookie was such an unexpected treat for me, so soft and delicately spiced with cayenne – what’s not to love! I am usually partial to chocolate chip, but the memory of this cookie has me pinning ginger molasses cookie recipes late at night.
