Covet Crate May 2016 box

Covet Crate is a new women’s subscription box geared to professional women sending items that a busy and stylish woman will actually use and appreciate! Every month you will receive carefully curated items geared toward the professional woman’s lifestyle to help empower, motivate, inspire, and encourage you. There are two versions of this box – the Girl Boss box or the Lady Boss box.

Lady Boss Box ($94.95): The lady boss has experience in her industry. She is at the top of her game and is looked up to by her peers. Neutrals and bold, monochromatic colors make her feel in control of life and work.

Girl Boss ($54.95): A girl boss has a fresh perspective on her industry. She takes her career seriously without being too serious. Fun colors and cute patterns inspire her to grow and succeed in her career.

I love cute girly things but I’m totally a lady boss, and that’s what I subscribed to. This subscription is now bimonthly and you can read the details here. FYI – these prices are the new prices. The box below cost a little less with the shipping.

The box comes with a mini magazine with a feature on a woman that changed the world. I was delighted to see Malala on the front cover!

There are multiple other features and little inspirational spreads.  A full page was devoted to each item in the box.

There was also a Thrivoo Gift gift card for a 15-minute session with Deborrah Ashley included in the box to help you increase leads and sales on Instagram.

Covet Crate May 2016 review

The box itself was much smaller than previous months, so I was really super curious to peek inside – this is what I found!

Rose Gold Foil Desk Calendar ($23.99) On the one hand this is a great desk calendar – it totally protects the calendar and doesn’t flop everywhere like a lot of other stand up calendars. On the other hand, it’s June. I already have issues with calendars coming in January instead of November or December.

I like it and I love the rose gold foil, but it bugs me that the whites clash. I will put a picture of my kids in it since I would never look at the calendar anyways. FYI – this is an IKEA Tolsby frame (99¢).

The print came protected in a plastic envelope. Covet Crate May 2016 (10)

Watercolor Art Print: So pretty and so now. Everything matches! I would love to see a frame next box…

Watercolor Notepad & Sticky Notes: These are produced by Covet Crate and are pretty and useful! I wished that the quality was a little better on these – for items that are created by the box for the box, I expect the quality to really be top notch. I appreciated that everything coordinated.

Poppin Softie This & That Tray ($10)

Poppin Mint Stapler ($14)

Poppin Assorted Paper Clips ($4)

I already use Poppin desk accessories so these will all go perfectly with them! I am excited about the mint stapler – it’s super pretty and obviously useful. This is a great and useful set!

I really love the mint green color of these desk accessories and they’re sure to be heavily used.

Liz Davenport’s Order from Chaos ($12.50) Wow do I ever need this book!

Order from Chaos is the organizing book for disorganized people. In six easy steps she offers a system that will help you clean up your act. She demonstrates how to clear your desk by teaching you what’s trash and why, reveals what a calendar is really meant to be, and provides a no-fail system for prioritization. At the end of the day, your desk will be clear and your mind will be free to relax.

Rather than offering overcomplicated instructions for filing systems and time management plans, Order from Chaos focuses on ease of use. There is not one person—from office assistant to CEO—who will not benefit from this straightforward, easy-to-maintain plan.

I’m going to be reading this simple and straightforward organizing book.  It’s a lot more my style than Konmari-ing everything.

Parris Chic Home Sweet Home Pillow Cover ($10) After I am done organizing I can call my house home sweet home! I sure hope so. Covet Crate May 2016 (17) This is a cute cover and well made!

I liked that the tag told me who sewed it!

Here’s a peek at the Girl Boss box from Sarah!

The value of the box was $58 plus the calendar, print, and coordinating stationery. Since this box is increasing in price by $5, it’s just going to have to do better. The value is at around the cost of the box but has dropped so much over the past few months and the price of the calendar is clearly wildly inflated. I feel that the Girl Boss box is a much better value, but it’s hard to let go of the FOMO (can someone find me a box for that?!?). I cannot imagine paying $95 for what I received this month. I have really high hopes that the new bimonthly schedule will allow for better sourcing, because I really love the curation and vision of this subscription.

    I share your same thoughts. I do think overall that people want the box to be successful. The curator has an eye for color and sourcing brands that people desire. I hope that by going bimonthly it will allow the curator to make changes based on feedback on the blogs and forums. She does seem receptive to comments.

    I love the mint color!
