Hi there loves! I am so happy that I got to receive, and review another buddhibox! I love everything in this month’s box, and feel very lucky to be able to get this amazing box every month to review. I usually do a video, and blog post comparing the two boxes, yogisurprise with buddhibox, but I don’t think that’s fair to each company, so I have now decided to do two separate blog posts, I think it just makes more sense, and feel like they deserve their own as well 🙂 Buddhibox is a yoga, natural, active lifestyle subscription box, it’s not as well known yet, and I am happy to help spread the word, because I really do enjoy everything that I have gotten so far in my boxes. I think the price is a great value, for what your getting in the box, and the variety of products, and brands that are offered each month is great as well. I love that they include products from brands I have never heard of, and wouldn’t normally get the opportunity to try if it wasn’t for buddhibox. They seem to work with smaller, less known companies, even some etsy shops that are handmade, it doesn’t get much better than that! These boxes are such fun surprises, because  you never know what you will get, or get to try out, that’s how I have discovered so many amazing brands is from subscription boxes, win win for everyone 🙂 

Buddhibox now has two different subscription options. There is a monthly subscription box that is lifestyle based, then there is a seasonly subscription box that is only jewelry, a lot like the other company I mentioned above, but I don’t want to compare the two anymore, and just focus on what’s great about each company, and box instead. Okay, I just looked on the website, and apparently they aren’t offering the jewelry box anymore, at least not this month or season for fall hasn’t come out yet, because it’s completely gone from the website, bummer, so we will just discuss the monthly box.

There are different price options, which are a bit confusing as far as pricing, and what your looking for so I will include it in this post below. I do think the box is a good deal, especially if you decide to get the best deal at purchasing a 12 month subscription. The value is definitely there, and the box value is consistently over the price you would pay monthly for the subscription, sounds great right? This box is perfect for anyone that loves a special treat (like a present) every month, and it doesn’t matter if you practice yoga in your life or not, because it’s more gift based, and contains the perfect items for anyone! My favorite item from the box this month was the necklace, I love anything with lotus flowers, and this was beautiful, it is from an etsy shop, and handmade as well, it seems like it is good quality, although I wish it was sterling silver, so it wouldn’t color, and I could wear it in the shower, etc, but that’s okay. I love it, and will definitely wear it, it’s so danty, and I love little charm necklaces like that, so it’s perfect, I also think that the incense that were in the box this month, smell freaking amazing, OMG they make my house smell so good, and it instantly relaxes, and calms me, weird that a scent can do that! This is my favorite box that I have gotten so far! I love it! I hope next month’s is just as great, if not better!

Buddhibox vs. Yogisurprise (lifestyle & jewelry boxes) July 2015

Screen Shot 2015-08-05 at 5.05.15 AM

Hi there lovies! I hope everyone is having a great start to their week, I have to admit I am definitely struggling this week, I haven’t been sleeping well, and feel like I have a never ending schedule, and to do list. Do you ever feel like that? I really need to get everything under control again, it’s not been fun that’s for sure!!! 😦

I know that I am super late on this review, and the video review, but it’s better late than never, it was a busy end of the month as always, and after this post I will be all caught up for July, yeah, feels great for now, until the end of August lol! Anyways I wanted to do another comparison for these two boxes because I feel like they are so similar, and it’s kinda fun to see what type of items are in each box, etc. This month though is definitely different than the boxes I compared in June, as one of these is the jewelry subscription box (yogi surprise) but, I still thought it was a good idea to compare. Buddhibox is actually just launching their very first jewelry subscription box as well in August, so this really is perfect timing for the review of both of these in reality, yeah for being late right?

Okay so both of these boxes are a monthly subscription service and, are pretty comparable as far as types of items, and price, along with retail values. They obviously vary a lot from month to month, but I think they are pretty equal, yet yogisurprise thus far seems to have more full size items included. I really do enjoy both of them, and honestly don’t know which one I like better! They both feature such younique, and special items, it’s difficult to choose a favorite. Let’s check out what items are in each box. 

Here is the pricing for each box~

I think both of these boxes were great this month, which one did you like the best? My favorite item from the buddhibox was the candle, it is in the scent nag champa, and it totally reminds me of back in the day when I would burn incense, I love the smell, brought me right back that’s for sure! I always love candles though! My favorite from the yogisurprise is definitely the bracelet, the rose quartz is beautiful, and lotus flowers are my favorite!!! If you would like to subscribe to either of these boxes, please go ahead and go to the site, as I don’t have a link yet, or any promo codes, but will hopefully have them in the future!

Yogi Surprise May 2015 Box Review

FullSizeRender 2FullSizeRender

Yogi Surprise 

I was really interesting in reviewing this box, my goal for the month of May was to review, and compare some different more eco-friendly subscription boxes, I think I did a great job at meeting that goal! To my surprise not only is this amazing subscription box a local to me company (literally one city over) yeah, but it was a great box!

I LOVE that it’s local, supporting my local community has become very important to me recently! Oregon is a pretty wonderful, and beautiful place to live! I was more than delighted when they wanted me to review their subscription box, at the time I didn’t know which box I would be getting, but was hoping for the lifestyle box.

I was so excited to see what was inside, it was like Christmas, because I had no idea what to expect. I wanted to get a good feel of what was offered from a variety of companies as far as subscription boxes, that are better for the environment, and promote a healthy, natural, active lifestyle.

Yogi surprise offers two different boxes per month, a lifestyle, and a jewelry box. They are both 2 different prices, which to be honest is a bit confusing, and they are offering a special right now, so I am not sure if that is a regular thing or not, but hey everyone loves a great deal! If you are interesting in subscribing, I would jump on it, or use the coupon code below! I got the lifestyle box to review, and really was delighted with everything that was in it. I will get use out of everything, and my favorite items in the box is the moon valley organics peppermint foot rub. I have every product this brand makes, and absolutely love this company, the packaging is adorable too! This foot rub feels amazing on my feet! I already knew I would love it! I really like the tibetan prayer flag as well, I have always wanted one, I will have to do more research on how it’s properly used, and displayed, but it is SO cool! Can we talk about this beautiful OM necklace? It is seriously beautiful, I love the color beads, very pretty necklace, I really like it! I hope you all like this box, I am including the video of the comparison boxes, I thought that would be a fun box since they are both yoga lifestyle related. I also took the pictures in a peace lily plant, fitting huh? 🙂
