Subscription Box

Subscription Addiction – White Willow

This month I have decided to try out a new subscription box for review called White Willow.

White Willow caught my attention because it is a Canadian subscription box. I looked through some other reviews to see what folks had received and decided the 49.95 price tag seemed worth it.

I signed up for 2 boxes and White Willow is unique in that it is a bi monthly box instead of monthly or seasonal. Let’s see what’s inside this month.

White Willow fully embraced the romance for this month’s box. Roses, chocolates. It was pretty dreamy to be honest.

Even this full sized toner smelled like rose heaven. It was a well curated assortment.

This adorable ring dish was probably my favourite item this month. It’s definitely going to be included in my new office decor.

Lastly, was a no name quilted crossbody purse. No brand, polyester and unattractive hardware. This was the real loss of an otherwise amazing subscription box. No clue why they would choose the obviously low quality item.

I paid a total of $94.90 for two boxes, making this a cost of $47.45. I don’t honestly feel like I got my money’s worth this month but aside from the purse, liked the items and the curation with the theme.

What subscription boxes do you subscribe to? What do you want me to try next?

A few of my friends have a passion for bees and Fever Dream Boutique on Etsy had these beyond perfect patches. 10% of their sales go to benefit Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, which is near and dear to my  heart.

I simply dare you to do a Galentine’s Day Etsy search. You will be amazed at the shear level of awesomeness.
