Look what came in the mail. I got a mommy mailbox. I'm not big on getting random expensive boxes that you don't know what is inside, but decided to give it a try. Beverly Mitchell, from 7th Heaven, now has a wonderful blog I love following called Growing up Hollywood. She promoted the box on her blog and instragram and decided to give it a try. I was happily pleased with its content.
The first thing you see when you open the box is a a little card about the contents of this month's Mommy Mailbox. This months theme, which Beverly helped to select the items in the box, is Pamper.
Bum bum da daaaaa. (i have no idea why that picture is upside down and it won't let me flip it) Inside the box is
- a notepad by Rifle Paper Co.
- Bath salt from San Francisco Salt Co.
- Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups from Wild Ophelia
- Earrings from Wrenn Jewelry
It is such a cute notepad. I can't wait to start using it. But I personally like notepads that you have access to write all over the paper, not just in the middle. I will find something to do with it though, maybe leave special notes around the house.
I can't tell you the last time I have taken a bath. I am excited to try out these Himalayan bath salts that are supposed to give you an instant soothing experience. Now to plan some mommy time with a quiet bath. This may take a while, I'm lucky to get a shower.
OMG chocolate is my weakness, dark chocolate is my favorite. I am not normally a fan of peanut butter cups. If you are in Ohio and know what buckeyes are, I don't like those either. But I will eat peanut butter out of the jar. I'm weird I know. But I must say I did really like these sea salt peanut butter cups. I ate them all and didn't share.
I am a jewelry girl, but I normally go for white gold. The earring from Wrenn Jewelry are very pretty though. They are a rose gold and very sparkly. I have wore them once and I am surely to wear them again.
My favorite item in the box is the Santa Ana long lasting liquid lipstick. It has a retail value of $20. It is stays will stay on lips for hours. And it truly does. I love the dark reddish fall shape. I wore it to work the other day and it stay on my lips the whole 5 hours I was there. Below is a picture of me with the lipstick on.
I did enjoy getting the Mommy Mailbox. I liked everything that was in it. It isn't normal stuff that I would have bought myself, but really enjoy having news things to try. I don't see myself getting the box again at $37 a month. It was nice to have a treat though.
