Kendra Scott Edie Silver Cuff Bracelet in Slate Cats Eye – Retail Value $55.00
I like the majority of Kendra Scott designs. They are also one of those brands that have metals that work just fine with my skin, which can be a little sensitive. You probably already know I am obsessed with cuff bracelets and I loved this one immediately! It is perfect for stacking or wearing alone. I also love that the metal is silver and the cat eye stones are also a shimmering grey shade. Loads of light get caught up in these cabochons and they have so much shimmer inside.
I am actually so into this cuff.
Ever Silver Pendant Necklace in Slate Cats Eye – Retail Value $50.00
This necklace perfectly matches the cuff from above. Again, really thrilled with the sophisticated choice of this silvery stone. It actually leans a little lavender depending on what you are wearing, which is very pretty. This necklace is minimal enough to wear with other favorites or wear alone. I am very pleased with this set.
Absolutely LOVE this with my fave Marla Aaron Bolt Necklace.
Banjees 2 Pocket Wrist Wallet – Retail Value $19.95
I have actually been on the lookout for something like this for my long walks with Tucker. It feels silly to haul a purse just to carry my phone and important cards. This is a wrist cuff style carrier with two built-in pockets. It is made out of a moisture-wicking athletic-style fabric that has lots of stretch. The black marble design is subtle enough to go with anything!
Teami Luxe Edition Tea Rose Gold Tumbler, 20 oz – Retail Value $54.99
The retail value of this tumbler seems a little out there, but I will admit that it is quite nice, especially for a tea lover like myself. The built-in filter makes it totally functional for both loose leaf teas, fruit-infused water, and more. You can use this hot or cold and it will maintain temperature for hours. I also like the built-in wrist lanyard!
Teami Chai Tea Blend, 20 bags – Retail Value $29.99
For as much as I adore tea, I really dislike chai. For that reason, I passed this on to Marne, who loves chai! Here are her thoughts:
This chai is really lovely. Spicy and warm. I let the tea bag steep in half a mug of hot water, then poured warm milk in to make it a latte. Super tasty!
This bag comes with 20 servings, so if you like chai, you and Marne can enjoy it for quite some time!
Spongelle Coconut Verbena Pedi-Buffer – Retail Value $16.00
I was shocked that this box came with FOUR Spongelle products! That’s crazy! I like this brand a lot though, and use them pretty frequently when I have them. This first sponge is actually a pedicure buffer in a delightfully fresh coconut and verbena scent. Half of the sponge is the normal Spongelle texture and the other is a coarser buffer bar. It provided a nice amount of exfoliation and was a welcome addition to my recent home pedicure.
Air Fresh Tuberose Zodiac Buffer – Retail Value $20.00
Our first body buffer is an adorable star shape from their zodiac line. Though I am a fire element Leo, I absolutely love the fresh floral scent from this little celestial sponge!
Spongelle French Lavender Multi-Use Body Buffer – Retail Value $16.00
When I get a Spongelle in a different box, it is usually this lavender scent. That suits me just fine since I like lavender very much! These flower-shaped sponges hang from a black satin ribbon, which is perfect for hanging in your shower between uses. I usually get at least 14 showers from one of these!
Spongelle Sugar Dahlia Multi-Use Body Buffer – Retail Value $16.00
Our final sponge is another flower style, but in a yummy and sweet sugar dahlia scent. My nose picks up a little ylang ylang and citrus, as well as petals.
Cacao Graham Crack, 4 oz – Retail Value $6.00
Wow. These were freaking delicious. They are graham crackers coated in delicious chocolate, toffee, and sea salt. A treat that is both sweet and salty is my ultimate weakness… these did not last long and I didn’t share with anyone!
Cacao 4-Piece Pave Box – Listed Value $12.50
This 4 piece sampler was also really tasty, and from the same confectioner as those amazing graham crackers. I enjoyed these squares because they were all semi-sweet and utterly complex in terms of taste. These were certainly the type of treat that you savor one by one, exploring all the different ingredients and flavors inside each.
The Drop It Wine Glasses, set of 2 – Retail Value $24.00
Our kitchen has a massive ceramic farmer’s sink that has cracked much of my glassware. We are clumsy, ok? It is actually so bad that we have only started to buy metal and plastic drinkware for the house! These unbreakable BPA-free goblets are a perfect addition to my shelves and despite being plastic they still have a really nice weight.
TokyoMilk Zebra Tote – Retail Value $12.00
This mini reusable tote is very cute. It also happens to be the perfect size for stashing art supplies or yarn. Because it is made of plastic, I can wipe down any paint splatter or dirt, too!
TokyoMilk Yellow Flower Hand Soap, 8 oz – Retail Value $12.00
We have a recently remodeled guest bathroom and I love stocking it with fancy hand soaps. This pretty bar certainly fits the bill, and it has a truly lovely scent that is a blend of citrus and flowers. It is also very gentle on my hands which is a plus in a time when I feel like 50% of my day is handwashing.
TokyoMilk Awaken Within Handcreme, 2.7 oz – Retail Value $22.00
What a pretty scent! This hand cream smells like jasmine, orange blossoms, and warm sunshine. It feels great on my dry hands and the packaging is beyond gorgeous, even for the already elevated standards of Margot Elena. Though this cream is perfectly giftable, I think I will be keeping this one!
TokyoMilk Song In D Minor Parfum, 1 fl oz – Retail Value $36.00
I tend to like the more odd fragrances from TokyoMilk, but I am not sure I am sold on this one. It smells a little serious compared to the majority of my scents. The biggest note here is a lovely gardenia, which I normally would be gaga for. I think the base of amber is where I get lost because it makes what should be a frilly white floral scent feel a little weighed down. I plan on trying this again in a few days to see if it grows on me.
TokyoMilk Rose Water Lip Balm, 0.22 oz – Retail Value $10.00
Our final item is a wonderful little lip balm pot, also from TokyoMilk. It has a sweet rose scent and is very moisturizing to my lips. I also (again) adore this gorgeous packaging.
Verdict: Wow. There was A LOT shoved into this Fabulous You Box. And I really quite enjoyed it! The box opened up with jewelry from a brand I really like, took me to tea land, showered me in fragrant sponges, fed me delicious sweets, and then surrounded me with beautiful scents from TokyoMilk. This box kind of felt like Christmas! Value-wise, there is definitely enough here to justify the $165 price tag if you are looking for a little more of a higher-end “treat yourself” sort of box. I think the fact that this box is quarterly might help that sort of a splurge make more sense and it is certainly worth your time if you have the budget and love these sorts of brands. The total value here lands around $412.43, which is over the promised $400 value of this $165.00 box.
