Woman Up Box September 2017
I received the mentioned subscription box from Woman Up Box in exchange for an honest review. The thoughts contained within this post are mine and may vary from the thoughts of others.
About Woman Up Box
Woman Up Box is a monthly gift that you give to yourself full of blissful products to treat your mind, body, soul and senses. Each month brings a themed box of goodies that will include handmade and small batch spa, beauty and bath items, gourmet treats, fun accessories and jewelry, and creative home and lifestyle products. What makes our box even more special is that we focus on lifting up women. We work to discover new woman run companies each month to introduce you to that are creating fabulous products that you’ll love and want to share. We promote women helping women to succeed not only by sourcing all of our products from women, we also include a monthly “Lift Up” card in each box with ideas on how to give another woman in your life a boost and we donate 10% of our proceeds to a woman-focused charity each month. We believe in the power of women supporting women. We will all be stronger if we work together.
What We Thought
Last month we received our first ever box from Woman Up Box and impressive was definitely an understatement. If you would like to read that review check it out here: Woman Up Box August 2017 and see what we had to say.
The September box arrived a few weeks ago and Oh.My.Goodness! I do not have the words to describe how each one of these products spoke to me. I was left feeling like this box was created just for me. The box title for the month is Black Magic Woman (how fitting!!) and there was a bunch of amazing stuff pictured above. Let me tell you, those popcorn balls did not last much past this picture. I couldn’t even resist them and we dug in. They were extra fresh and the perfect sweet snack for after dinner.
The popcorn balls were just a highlight though, I want to talk about what else this amazing box had to offer and give you guys more information on how to start your own subscription and better yet even win one of your own (see below).
One of my favorite parts of this box are the Lift Up Cards that are included with ideas for lifting up other special women in our lives, but also how to do things for ourselves. As a wife and mom I often forget to take time out for ME and I am learning that I need that. I need my own time, space, an energy refill, to center myself… whatever you want to call it, as women we need to be certain to take this time each week.
Now back to the insides of this amazing box–
1-Patchouli & Cloverbud Soap– AMAZING. This smells so good just sitting on my counter that I do not even want to use it. It has made our home smell great and it is such a perfect scent for the cooler days (I wish those would hurry up and get here by the way!!) You can get this soap at greendaffodil.com it retails for $4.00.
2- Caramel Popcorn Balls- We talked about those already. Simply delicious and retailing for $1 each. My Mom tells a story about a lady handing these out in her community for Halloween and how the kids had to have them. I always think about that each time I see a popcorn ball.
3- Fortune Telling Book of Dreams- What a cool guide to tell us what our dreams mean. I have been able to gain some insight into my dreams with this fun guide and I love just looking through it to just read. This book is vintage inspired and super cute! $9.95 by Andrea McCloud.
4- Halloween Pop Up Card- Our 4 1/2 year old son loudly proclaimed he was sending this to my parents for Halloween before I could ever finish my unboxing. He loves it and really can’t wait for Halloween to get a little closer so that he can send this and see what they think. This is handmade and pops out, but folds flat for mailing. Check out QueenBeeInspirations on Etsy! $6.95 for this card.
5-Tin Halloween Mug- ADORABLE little mug that says witches brew and has a witch on the opposite side. This little mug is 12 ounces and was stolen for me by the above mentioned 4 1/2 year old. He drinks his orange juice every morning from this mug and I have never gotten a chance to use it, so word of warning if you have kids, buy 2. $22.00 for this mug and it was a Woman Up Box Exclusive!
6-Raven Pendant- I can’t wait to wear this to add something special to my Halloween outfit when taking the boys trick-or-treating this year. It is sure to be an eye catcher. Made by Georgia Teaberry on Etsy it is on a 26 inch chain and is $14.50.
7-Halloween Wine Charms- I want to invite everyone I know over for a party (okay not everyone, but some fun girlfriends) and have these on the wine glasses. They are so so cute and add just the right flair to any fun Halloween themed drink (side note, check out Pinterest for all kinds of fun Halloween inspired foods and drinks. We have a Halloween album full!) These are $8.00 and made by winewifehappylife on Etsy.
8- Raven Tea Towel– Last but certainly not least, this flour sack towel looks perfect in my kitchen this season and I love that it soaks up water so well but does not leave a bunch of mess behind like other fabrics. I am no stranger to flour sack towels but this one is amazing. $13.00 from CounterCoutureDesign on Etsy.com.
So that covers the items, lets everyone know what they are worth and how awesome each thing is and I bet now you want to know how to get this box so here goes:
Subscriptions start at $49.95 and as you can see you are getting more than your money’s worth from this. I am always anxious to review subscription boxes because often I feel that some do not give you the bang for your buck or you are left feeling like “where is the rest” but with Woman Up Box this is simply not true.
