Yogisurprise Subscription Boxes Jewelry/ Lifestyle Review May 2016

is-yogi-surprise-right-for-you1

Hello everyone, how has a month flew by so quickly? I have NO idea how that even happened!!! Here I am trying to be better about blogging, well it’s time to make that commitment again, I have had some great boxes for June roll in, and still wanted to share with you all. I hope you enjoy, I think the photos turned out pretty neat too! If you don’t know what yogisurprise is, it’s a monthly subscription box that has two different box options, which both are amazing boxes!! Each box is a separate subscription and price, so please check it out down below. I most definitely love both!! I can’t decide which I like best, they both are great boxes this month, let’s jump right into the review for both of them, I do receive these boxes for review each month, and they are a local to me company here in Oregon yeah, but my honest opinions are always my own. I love yogisurprise though, and they are an amazing company as well, and offer a great variety of brands, and products, and the jewelry pieces are very unique, and lovely! Yogisurprise is great for everyone, not just yoga lovers, the lifestyle box has something for everyone 🙂

I am sharing the yoga jewelry box down below. This is my favorite box I have ever received from yogisurprise. Yes, I know the box is from May, but I just had to review, and share it, because it’s that good!!! The mala sandalwood necklace is absolutely stunning, so beautiful, and very well made. I couldn’t believe how lovely it was, and how much of a high value it was! Yogisurprise nailed it with this box! I really love the bracelet as well, the delicate charm on the bottom is so cute, and perfect! The lovey chocolate fudge rolls we have received before in a previous box, which is a bummer, but they are really yummy, so I don’t mind, they are grown up versions of tootsie rolls, can’t go wrong with a classic right? I really enjoy how they include a treat every month in the box!

What do you think of the jewelry box for May? Do you think you would try it out? They both are great boxes, and I am sure it would be hard to choose which one to try, but I think anyone would love 2 pieces of beautiful crafted jewelry every month!

Buddhibox June 2015 Unboxing & Review

I am so excited that I was able to receive another buddhibox to review! I absolutely loved last month’s box, and everything that was included. I was a bit disappointed with this box though, as there was no comparable value, or big ticket items like there was last month in May, that box for me was perfect! I still really love the box, and the variety of unique items. I thought it was a bit odd to include 2 large food items in the box, I did taste one out, and it was pretty good, but just kinda doesn’t fit in with the theme of the box, I didn’t think. The tote bag has a really cute design, but it is very cheaply looking, and made, and seems to already be falling apart, and I haven’t even used it yet, I do like that it was handmade, but thought it could be a little better quality. The item I am most about in this months box is the detox face mask, but let me tell you, it made a HUGE mess all over, it’s grey, and chalky, and you would think if you are putting something like this in a subscription box, it would be well sealed, or in a plastic bag or something. I was reading another review, and the same thing happened unfortunately. The mask itself seems really cool, and different though, along with the toner tab too, can’t wait to try them out together! I guess every box can’t be amazing, as with any subscription box, I always voice my honest, and fair opinion. I was also disappointed that my box was missing two cards, I am not positive what they were, but it was factored into the value I guess, so bummed I didn’t get those. Alrighty, what do you guys think of this box this month, is it something you would want to try? I am hoping that next month will be better, I am excited to see what the future holds for this great box. I am sure that it’s difficult to get the more natural brands, and products, but I think it’s important to have the value in each box for the subscribers, and customers. I just really loved last month’s box! I will use, and eat everything in this box though, so that’s a win. I think the bracelet is super cute, and will be wearing it 🙂

UPDATE: I love the cute namaste bracelet, it’s so adorable, and great reminder to stay calm, and relaxed. The face mask is INCREDIBLE, I love it, a little goes a long way, so I will get a few more uses out of it, which is great, it made my skin incredibly soft, and my skin felt fresh, and clean afterwards!

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? 🙂
