I think orchids are such a beautiful flower and I basically adore any and every shade of pink, so this is a delightful card for me to see when opening this box! Points to them for cuteness!!!

I paid $45.99 after the $5 off coupon for this season’s box and received items totaling a retail price of $217.91. I’m not sure if I would pay full price for everything, but I do think I received a few really nice products here that I look forward to using. Overall, I think this box did pretty well. I might stay with this one, format least a couple more seasons. I do wish this one was a monthly subscription box.   Get $10 off your first box!
Stay beautiful on the inside & out, my lovelies!
