Fancy Box Review – April 2013


My Fancy Box arrived and it always as surprise as to what kind of crazy items I’m going to get. Last month I got the box for my man and it was pretty good. I thought I would switch it up and get one for myself (cause I’m so box deprived). The categories I selected were Women’s, Kids, Gadgets, and Media.


My box took a beating. Usually the delivery guy hands it to me, but not this one. He just left it at the door. I guess he didn’t want to have to explain what happened or see me freak out. All I was hoping was nothing was broken.

Memo Mountain


Brighten up your work area to home with this refreshing memo board. You can mount on monitor screens, windows, doors, mirrors, and more. This is kind of cute and funny.

How To Traumatize Your Children - Book


Well the title says it all. Who doesn’t want to give their children the lifelong gifts of mental and emotional damage. Could you imagine if someone actually took this seriously?! Actually I better read it to make sure I’m NOT doing any of these things.

Paper Watch


A watch made of tear-resistant paper-style material with a built-in digital watch. You can write, draw, paint it or decorate it any way you want. Not very stylish, but I get that you can be as creative as you want with it. I’ll let 3 year old go nuts on it.

Fancy Nail Lacquer Set


It includes 2 lacquers in Fancy Red & Fancy Black and there’s a cuticle balm. I like these colours and I need a cuticle balm, so this is good.

Maps Rocks Glass


This is probably my favourite item in the box and I’m shocked it was still in one piece. With next to no packing paper, how it survived the trip is beyond me. Hand-etched, 10 oz rocks glass with custom wrap-around street maps of kick-ass cities and I got NYC! Love it!

So I think this will be my last Fancy Box for awhile. I’ve received a few and I’m still expecting the next Coco Rocha Fancy Box, but it just costs too much. $39 plus an additional $17 for shipping to Canada is crazy. I’ve used coupon codes for my boxes, so that really helps. I do enjoy Fancy Box, but I need to take a break.

Do you subscribe to any of the Fancy Boxes? There’s a lot of celeb ones and I just found out there’s a new one. It’s the Jennifer Love Hewitt Fancy Box. Not sure what to expect from this one, but I’m always curious to find out what people think of these boxes. So hit me up if you got this month’s box or tell me which celeb ones you like.
