December 2016 Mommy Mailbox Review

       

Every so often, I tend to find myself completely obsessing over som thing (aside from my boxes!). It's just a weird quirk, I suppose. Right now, I am obsessed with mercury glass. Yes, I know it's nothing new but good lord is it wonderful to look at. I picked up a mercury glass mason jar lantern the other day that has led lights in it and I'm just loving the look of it. The way the light casts through it makes me happy and now I feel the need to put them everywhere. What can I say? I like to indulge the interior decorator in me from time to time. And speaking of indulgence, let's pop the lid on the December Mommy Mailbox!

 

Mommy Mailbox, who kindly sent me this box for review, is a monthly lifestyle subscription service. While this box is geared towards moms, it's actually a great box for anyone looking to indulge themselves or someone special. The cost is $33.95 per month you'll receive a carefully curated selection of uplifting and inspiring items. Expect a mix of fashion, gourmet food, fitness, art, home d├ęcor and beauty

 

Oh! I love the white and gold packaging this month. Very holiday chic!

 

This months theme is Glow and it was curated by blogger Casi Densmore-Koon of cupcakemag.com.

 

The included information card gives you all the details on the items featured in this months box. 

 

Glow For A Cause Facial Nourishing Cream --- Oh my goodness, this smells fantastic! This citrus and organic calendula face cream not only smells great, it's creamy, whipped texture feels great as well. Perfect for preventing and/or soothing that dry skin we all tend to develop in the winter!

 

Manna Kadar Blush --- Oh thank god it's a color I don't have. I love Manna Kadar cosmetics and own quiet a bit from them but this is a new shade for me. Yay! Why don't I already have this color, you ask? Because this is brand new and Mommy Mailbox subscribers are some of the first people to try it! It is such a gorgeous shade and works beautifully on my fair skin!

 

Olive + Piper Bracelet --- You know how I talk about loving simplistic designs that still manage to make a statement? This is a fantastic example of why I love that very thing. This is a simple, classic crystal bangle but the 14k rose gold plating just grabs your eye. 

 

I really just absolutely love this bracelet.  It's gorgeous, timeless, and I can wear it with pretty much everything in my closet!

 

Sweep Beauty Oval Face Brush --- Why, Mommy Mailbox, you must be psychic! I was planning on buying one of these very soon but now you've saved me the trouble! I adore these brushes and make for great highlighting and contouring along the cheekbones. I love them for all over foundation buffering as well!

 

Jo's Candies Peppermint Bark --- One of my favorite Holiday treats! This is just delicious and I wish I had more now! Handcrafted layers of dark chocolate and white bark with a crushed candy cane dusting? Yes please!

 

This is only my second month of Mommy Mailbox but it's already sinking its hooks into me. I have loved and adored everything I have received and I love, love, LOVE the variation in the items. It's so nice to see a box that mixes it up so well and makes me feel giddy when I dive into its contents! Fabulous!
