Once in a while you come across companies that care SO much about the curation, appearance, style and display of their products that you can just feel it when you first get your hands on the product(s)!

Today I’m reviewing a product that I have wanted to get my hands on for a loooong time but always feared the cost (I am likely the most frugal person you’ll ever come across).
