Eeek! I was actually nervous to open this box. I was a little disappointed with last month’s box, so I opened this one with some trepidation. With the Coco Rocha Fancy Box I’ve come to expect boxes nothing short of amazing! I feel spoiled! The items in the box are fun, trendy and something I could count on to have me beaming with excitement. I want that feeling every month, so that’s why I continue to subscribe.
If you’re not familiar with the Fancy Boxes, let me bring you up to speed. Fancy offers several celebrity curated Fancy Boxes, as well as their regular Fancy Boxes. The Coco Rocha Fancy Box is my personal favourite and each month you’ll receive a box filled with her latest faves - things like jewelry, nail polish, tech products and other cool things. Each Fancy Box will have more than $80 worth of stuff inside.
Cost: $39 / month + shipping ($7.95 to U.S. or $17 to Canada)

Richer Poorer Socks
Socks?! They’re cute and I can never have too many socks, so this is alright.
The Sartorialist: Original
In the beginning, Scott Schuman just wanted to take photographs of people that he met on the streets of New York who he felt looked great. The blog he started, thesartorialist.com, is now an internationally renowned site and a showcase for the wonderful and varied sartorial tastes of real people across the globe. This book is a beautiful anthology of Scott's favourite images, accompanied by his insightful commentary.
I LOVE this book!!! The photographs are just gorgeous and so inspirational. Seriously, I could turn to any page and be in awe of the style of these people! Great, great book!
A few pages from the book...
Jin Soon Nail Polish (Rhapsody)
A high gloss nail lacquer that is long lasting with a chip-proof finish and a rapid drying time. This double patented formula delivers a long-lasting manicure with a rich and lustrous color payoff in a single coat.
This is cool! I like the design and can use it to put my small earrings in.
Lavender & Thyme Jar Candle
I’m not big on candles, so I’ll pass this along to someone who’ll enjoy it more.
Honestly, my initial reaction was again underwhelming, but having the box for a few days now I have to say it’s grown on me. There wasn’t that big “wow” item, but I suppose the book is that item and some of these things will make nice gifts. At least it’s a nice variety of products. Overall a decent box. Now I think I’ll go put on my socks and flip through my new favourite book. :)
