July 2015 Escape Monthly Review & Coupon

         

So I have this list, full of places I want to visit and explore, that I am determined to complete throughout my life. We make a point to try and cross off at least one destination each year (Finally checked off Disneyworld last week) and the plan for next year just so happens to be the featured city in the July Escape Monthly!



Escape Monthly, who kindly sent me this box for review, is a monthly lifestyle subscription service. Each month, subscribers will receive a 'vacation in a box' full of fabulous items curated around the featured destination. At $49.00 per month, it is a bit pricey, but it always has some phenomenal products that make it well worth the cost (for me, anyway). You can, however, lower that price tag by using coupon code MYESCAPE at signup. That knocks off 20% off your subscription for life, making your total monthly cost gown to $39.99.


Yay!!! When I saw that the July destination was New Orleans, I may have shrieked a bit. This is one of the cities at the top of my 'must visit' list and I could hardly wait to dive in and see what Escape Monthly chose to highlight this unique and vibrant city!


The included sheet gives you a detailed look at all the items included in your box.


Frommers New Orleans Guidebook --- Each month a travel book is included. This one is really fantastic and even includes a very detailed foldout map!

  
Pat O'Brians Hurricane Cocktail Mix --- the signature drink was concocted during WWII when Rum was more plentiful than grain alcohol like Whiskey. I can't wait to try this yummy cocktail!



NOLA's Mint Julep Happy Hour Lip Balm --- this tastes and feels absolutely fabulous! Cool and refreshing just like the drink. This balm is handmade from scratch without detergents, environmentally harmful ingredients, sodium laurel sulfates, or petroleum byproducts.



NOLA's Emulsified Sugar Scrub in Blue Like Jazz --- A sugar scrub is one of those things I am always happy to see in a box! This one is loaded with Vitamin E and other skin saving antioxidants like rice bran oil, avocado and coconut oils.



Red Stick Spice Co. BBQ Shrimp Seasoning --- shrimp anything is good to me. This seasoning is delicious and it won't last long in my house!



Mardi Gras Magnets --- The biggest most fabulous party of the year! This ceramic Magnet brings a little bit of the festivities to my kitchen decor.


Cafe Du Monde Beignet Mix --- This is a huge box! I love beignets but have never attempted to make them myself. My husband was successful and they were delicious.... Sadly, my efforts failed... I'm awful at frying things!


The Voodoo Doll --- What would a New Orleans box be without a Voodoo doll?! They are even handmade and blessed! And No.... They aren't creepy or evil!


Bocage Pralines --- The only thing I hate is that there was just one in the bag. Seriously, this is one of the most heavenly tasting things ever.... Completely drool worthy!


Silk Eye Pillow --- This was a special bonus item for Julyand at first, I was a bit unsure about an eye pillow. Thankfully, I now adore it and can't live without it. You can hear it or cool it but I find it particularly wonderful when it's cool and I need to ease my puffy tired eyes. It's seriously my new favorite thing!


Where do I even start?! The treats, the food, the bath products.... This was the perfect box to illustrate just why I love Escape Monthly so much! They captured the unique beauty of New Orleans in every way possible. One of their best collections ever!!
