I am going to try and do a Best of Boxes every month, so here are my favorites from the August subscription boxes I received:

1. Bonobos Orange and Blue Plaid Slim Fit Shirt ($78) (Trunk Club): This may be my favorite shirt of B’s.  I couldn’t believe how much The Trunk Club nailed B’s style with their picks.  We were just talking this weekend about his next trunk!
2. Zoli Straw Sippy Cup ($12): (Googaro): Next time I need more sippy cups I am buying Zoli ones.  I love the weighted straw and the design and the fact that it doesn’t leak a ton when WB throws it on the floor.  Highly recommended.
3. Bentgo – The All-in-One Stackable Lunch Box ($14.99) (PopSugar): I am all over Bento boxes and I am using the one I got in my box (it was blue) for L’s lunches. I traded for a pink one (for me) and have a green one coming (for WB), so yeah, it’s fair to say I love this.
4. Simple Revitalizing Eye Roll-On ($12.99) (Birchbox): I have professed my love for this before, but I’ll do it again. It’s probably one of my top beauty items ever.  It really works and I love how it instantly cools my eyes, which makes them feel better right away.
5. Ouchies Adhesive Bandages ($5) (Citrus Lane): If Citrus Lane sent me band-aids and ice packs every month, I’d be a happy girl.  L loves these (and I actually traded for more) and we’ve already used a bunch.  We need a band-aid for every little boo boo, so we go through a ton.
6. Lulah Body Wash ($11.25) (PopSugar): Yep, another PopSugar pick!  I loved the August PopSugar Box and like the Bentgo box, I traded for more of these too.  I actually wouldn’t mind one of each scent.  They smell amazing!
7. Rip van Wafels Caramel Filled Amsterdam Waffles ($1.25) (Love With Food): These are amazing.  I just got my order for more over the weekend and  I cannot wait to curl up on the couch this week with some hot chocolate and have one.  I gave some to my cousins when I was up-north and they agreed that they are quite yummy.  If you run into them at the store, TRY them!
8. The Hear Doggy Whale! by Quaker Pet Group ($5.89) (Barkbox): Whoever invented the non-squeeky squeeky toy is a complete genius. I can’t say enough good things about this.  Amazing!
9. FACE Stockholm Bronzer ($30) (Wantable): I was so excited to get a bronzer in a subscription box and this one from FACE Stockholm didn’t disappoint.  I usually use a MAC bronzer, but this one might be better!
10. Poppy & Elle Handmade Hair Ties ($4.20) (Dottiebox): These may have been the cutest elastic hair ties that I have ever gotten.  Grey chevron?  What could be wrong with that?

Those are my picks for my favorite August Box items!  What were your favorites from last month?  I’d love to hear!

Spread the love

    I loved the wafels too! We’re almost through the extra box I ordered already and might have to order another one. My 2 year old claimed the bento box from Pop Sugar immediately. My favorite was the apple bowl from PS. I use it to put my rings in when I take them off in the kitchen.

    Oh hard call. The ouchies are a huge hit already and I love my Bento box. I’m trying to remember what else came this month. LOL they do start to run together and it usually takes me about another month after I get something to actually get a chance to use it. I need a better trial system.

    I loved that Lulah Bathwash too!

  6. Suzanne

    zolibot is absolutely our favorite straw cup. We have since moved to just using playtex after my son chewed off the straw (only 1 kind of cup to keep track of), but it was so frustration free, just loved it!

    Some of my favorite things this month: Half pops from Blissmo Bites, The Gorjana open circle necklace from Pop Sugar, the Model Co. Party Proof Lipstick and the tomato almond crunchies from naturebox!

    I did lip my lip stain and smudging brush from Wantable in August. I am trying to decide between Accessories and Makeup from Wantable this month. I want to choose Accessories since I already have so much makeup coming. BUT…Wantable announced some of the box contents for their September Makeup Box. What to do?

    PS-My Grandma’s Dog (they both live with us now) LOVES hear doggy toys! And you know what? So do I! I ordered mine from Doggy Loot. They have them frequently. The whale is actually Molly’s favorite toy. Although her whale isn’t exactly blue anymore! 🙂

    I need to order more boxes!

    We liked the pineapple rings and blueberry almonds from Naturebox.

    The wafels from Love With Food are a treat from Holland. They are called stroopwafels. You can find them in lots of stores with specialty food sections. Here, I buy them at Trader Joe’s. I think they are called caramel bites.

    I loved that bento box too! I got pink luckily. and that Lulah body wash is awesome! I ended up going on ebay and buying a 2nd scent. So where do you do these trades?

    Oh, I love this post! I just purchased a few things from your list this morning. Again, you are a wonderful enabler 🙂 I have the waffle cookies from Love with Food last month and haven’t eaten it yet (damn diet), so now I’m looking forward to that too.

    I hope you do post one of these every month, I love your reviews.
