I adore subscription boxes that support small businesses. I love finding items in my boxes that come from local, Canadian companies because I know that I’m supporting someone’s family, helping to put food on someone’s table or sending a child to dance class as opposed to supporting a CEO purchasing his third yacht. This is why I love the Calla Life Box, because not only does the company only include products from local Canadian businesses, but a portion of every single box purchased goes to a deserving charity. This is my second time receiving this box and I love the concept and the variety of goodsRead More →

There are A LOT of subscription boxes on the market today-it’s nearly impossible to select one that you like because there’s always going to be another one that has something better, is cheaper, etc. There are also subscription boxes that are more popular than others, which makes the task of selecting the right one even more strenuous and difficult. When selecting subscription boxes to review, I like to try out popular ones but I also have fallen in love with supporting small businesses-especially Canadian ones- that don’t have their name out there too much yet. I came across Mapleblume after searching for beauty boxes butRead More →

Boxycharm is just one of those subscription boxes that knows exactly how to satisfy customers with their full sized products and it costs an unbelievably cheap price for the value.. only $21.00 a month! I struggled for a while deciding what make-up subscription box was for me as there are so many great options our there with Ipsy, TopBox, Beauty Box 5, etc. and I landed on Boxycharm after I compared the value of all of the boxes and realized that Boxycharm gave the most full-sized products for a relatively cheap price. Although Ipsy and Topbox ring in at around $12-14 per month including S&H,Read More →

For all of you subscription boxers (or unboxers) out there, if you haven’t heard of FabFitFun, you seriously need to do yourself a favour and go check these boxes out. I’m a huge fan of supporting subscription boxes that come from small/local businesses and are helping people to get the word out about safe, natural products. FabFitFun is a little more well-known but the products that come in the box also come from a variety of businesses and to top it off, they are REALLY good quality! I ordered this box December 1st and it came just a couple of days before Christmas. This wasRead More →

This post may be coming a little late considering I have seen many people unbox and review this box already, but I am SO glad I found Boxycharm so I couldn’t wait to talk about it on my blog. Boxycharm is a monthly subscription box that sends 5 FULL SIZED beauty products from different companies. They charge $21.00 / month not including tax or S&H, and there is free shipping on USA orders. I was searching for a while for a good make-up subscription box as many companies will ship only samples or mostly samples. There’s nothing wrong with this, but I wanted something thatRead More →

It’s my favourite time of the week- subscription box reviews! I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of this lovely box shipped from Western Canada. I usually like to look for boxes that I can purchase that either support some kind of charity or carries items that are derived from small and local businesses. Fortunately for me, this box has both features! Every time you purchase a Calla Life Box, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to a deserving charity. I know in the past, the company has worked with “I Can For Kids” to help end childhood summer hunger. Cost: The boxRead More →
