I ordered the second My Subscription Addiction box from Quarterly over a month ago, and I finally got it yesterday! Liz & Quarterly did a good job of keeping everyone informed with shipping info and a couple spoilers, so the wait wasn’t too bad. I was so glad it got delivered before I left Davis for break.The theme for this box was winter favorites that could be used in any climate, and I think Liz did a good job with it!
Quarterly boxes ship every three months (quarterly) and the website has a huge range of curators. This particular Quarterly box cost $50 and was one of my weight loss milestone rewards 🙂
This shows my first look at the box. Each package includes a letter from the curator explaining why they chose each item, which is helpful & a cool touch! All the retail prices were also included in the letter.
The box contained: Foot Traffic slipper socks, 2 (full-size!) Au Naturale eye shadows, full-size Yes to Carrots night moisturizer, Bauble Bar Ice Circle Pendant necklace, and a lovely Faribault recycled wool blanket.
These Au Naturale cream eye shadows are organic, non-toxic, paraben-free, and vegan. I’m so excited about them! The colors are great, one is a shimmery white called “White Quartz” and the other is a sort of bronze-y gold metallic specifically made for this box and called “Addiction”. They each retail for $20, which is way more than I would ever pay for eye shadow, but I’m really looking forward to trying them out.
This Yes to Carrots Intense Hydration Night Cream will be great to use to moisturize my dry skin. I’ve liked this brand for a while, but I haven’t tried this product, so it’s nice to have something new.
The Fuzzy Slipper Socks from http://www.foottraffic.com retail for $9. I got the pink ones, as you can see, and they are so soft! Fuzzy socks are the best this time of year.
I’m wearing the slipper socks now while we decorate the house for Christmas. Those fuzzy black shapes in the background are two of my doggies!
I love the Ice Circle Pendant from Bauble Bar! It’s tiny and subtle and sparkly and small enough that I can wear it during yoga. I’ll definitely be wearing it a lot. It retails for $32.
This blanket I’m bundled up in is the Faribault Woolen Mill Co. Recycled Wool Throw in Red Whip Stitching. It’s 65% recycled wool and 35% acrylic so it’s softer than the average wool blanket. The letter says it retails for $64, which means that just this item is worth more than what I paid for the whole box! I’m really happy to have a warm lap blanket that I can cozy up under while I’m home for the holidays.
The letter also included a code for a free month of Next Issue, a tablet magazine reader app, which is of no use to me because I don’t have a tablet, but it seems like a cool idea. There are also coupons for Faribault, Bauble Bar, Au Naturale, and Yes to Carrots.
I really enjoyed opening up this box, and I’m greatly enjoying using the things that were in it! So far, the necklace and blanket are my favorites, but I think I’ll also get a lot of use out of the eye shadows! I think Liz did a good job of curating it and making everything usable for winter in many climates!
