Our Subscription Box Favorites for September!
We’ve started a new monthly post highlighting our favorite discoveries from subscription boxes! Here are our favorite items from the past month:
Anna Reilly’s Favorite:
The Item: Clement VSOP Rum
The Cost: $47.99
Why I love it: Gin? Bourbon? Sure. But until this box, I’ve never thought of myself as a rum person. This smooth, flavorful rum was a beautiful gateway for me to learn about what the drink can be beyond the world of rum and Cokes at hole-in-the-wall bars that I’m used to. The simple daiquiri recipe that was printed in the booklet for the box is officially my new favorite weekend treat. It’s an easy way to impress friends who drop by or to make Netflix night a little more fun.

The Item: Smashmallow Cinnamon Churro Smashcrispy, 1.15oz
The Cost: Buy a 6 pack here for $5
Why I love it: This snack is a very fun twist on your average rice crispy treat. Fall is here, and I’ve been craving spicy cinnamon sugar, and at 130 calories a bar, this chewy, sticky snack is the perfect, guiltless solution!

The Item: Different Dimension Sick of Your Crop Nail Polish
The Cost: this is an exclusive shade made just for The Holo Hookup, but check out other holographic polishes from Different Dimension here
From: The Holo Hookup
Why I love it: This duochrome holographic polish is truly epic- it has a full rainbow holo shift as well as a duochrome shift that goes between copper, violet, and green. This polish was exclusive only to the September Holo Hookup box, and I will be treasuring this beauty for a long while to come.

The Item: Character Toothbrush Kit
Why I love it: I travel a lot, but not usually on long trips; an overnight to my mom’s house, a quick work jaunt, going out of town for a wedding, etc. For some reason, I always forget my toothbrush! This set is so cute; I love the dark purple, Hello Kitty pattern. The toothbrush folds into itself, so I can also keep it in my purse if I want, and I like the cup, too – it will also be great for these short trips, so I don’t have to waste paper products in order to have water on my nightstand.

The Cost: $45.00
Why I love it: I love this lightweight moisturizing gel-cream face balm. I have been using it daily with the Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Cleansing Milk, and it has left my skin moisturized and refreshed. I tend to use face creams that are heavy, and this is a welcome change to have a moisturizer that’s so lightweight and effective. The energizing balm is oil-free and best for all skin types.

The Cost: $22.85
Why I love it: This was a tough month to choose a favorite since I received so many great items, but being that it’s finally October, I am getting all the Halloween feels, so these are what came to mind first! Halloween is my favorite holiday and anything that helps me celebrate it is always appreciated. I love the cute Disney twist on jack o’lanterns and that these aren’t just decorative but also useful! These salt and pepper shakers are currently looking very cute and festive on my kitchen table and I’m glad that I have them to bring out each year!

The Item: Azucena Leather Wrap Bracelet (Forest)
The Cost: Exclusive to the box!
From: My Meraki Box
Why I love it: I’m so into wrap bracelets this fall, and I love the beautiful green complimented with the sterling silver clasp. The quad wrap is a fun twist, and I love the thin leather coupled with the 4 wraps for the perfect, easy, go to the bracelet!
The Item: 2017 Restless Earth Grenache
The Cost: Retail Value $24.99 (or $19 through subscription)
Why I Love It: I’m not much of a red wine fan, so originally, I wasn’t very excited to taste test this grenache. Boy, was my attitude all wrong! It was light, smooth, and crafted with such care. The grapes were grown at 2800-3200 feet above sea level, in a high-elevation location that provides a great deal of UV intensity. A daily temperature swing between 30-40 degrees protects the grapes from the harshness of the sun. Then, they’re picked at night and fermented in a whole cluster. I’ve never had a red like this before, and I’ll make it a point to have more reds like this in the future. Did this grenache just make a red wine believer out of me? I think so.

Why I love them: The serum is made with snail slime which is just cool and the combination of it with the super thin and sun-blocking moisturizer makes my skin glow!

The Cost: $44.95
Why I love it: I have been carrying it daily and have found myself using it almost every day for minor things here and there. It’s so tiny yet super powerful.
