We Love Single Women
At SinglesSwag, we do not subscribe to any societal or cultural expectations on women. We believe a woman’s happiness is determined by her outlook and attitude, not by her relationship status. We love to make single women look and feel beautiful, while empowering and inspiring them. We hope that our monthly package, created with love and delivered right to your doorstep will contribute to your happiness and well being. Never settle.
The November SinglesSwag box. So many goodies, I don’t know where to start!
DEAL: Use coupon code SINGLEANDHAPPY to receive 10% off your subscription for life!
The information card contains a brief description of each item and its’ value. The November theme is “you, yourself, deserve your love and affection.” Remember, you can’t love someone else until you learn to love yourself. SinglesSwag does a great job of sending out positive affirmations to its subscribers.
Natural Life Boho Bandeau and Sticker ($13.00): First of all, the sticker was a free gift. Yay, for a bonus! I might have laughed a little when I saw this in the box because I actually sell these specific Natural Life items at work. In all the years that we’ve carried this line, I shopped it but never bought anything. I guess the universe decided I didn’t take a hint too well. Anyway, on the card for the bandeau, Natural Life has included different ways it can be styled. From personal experience, I will tell you that it only works as a bandeau top if you are EXTREMELY tiny. That is not a one-size-fits-most look. Also, if you opt to use this as a ponytail holder, it will be very thick and bulky. Personally, I like it as an infinity scarf.
Twiggy Pouch – Gem ($22.00): Who doesn’t like a compliment, especially when being compared to gems?!? Singles Swag lists this as $22, but it is currently showing at $18 on the Twiggy site. This is an 11″ x 8″ canvas pouch with a nylon liner. It is very roomy and great for holding toiletries or other small items in your purse. If you visit the site, you can also purchase the matching tote.

Dot & Lil Milk Bath – Rice Flower ($18.00): Dot & Lil is a Canadian company that prides itself on its handmade heirloom-inspired products. The company’s name is a reference to sisters Dorothy and Lillian Gish. This milk bath features whole milk powder, ground oatmeal, and baking soda. It is scented with rice flowers, which are buds of the Chinese Perfume Tree. The scent is light, and the bath feels luxurious. Singles Swag lists this at $18.00; however, it is $20 CAD on the Dot & Lil site. That converts to $14.80.
A close up of the ingredients. Yes, this did make me feel a little like Cleopatra when I was soaking.
f’lint Retractable Lint Roller ($7.00): This is actually listed at $7.99 on the f’lint website. This is the second f’lint roller I’ve received, and I couldn’t be happier. The roller is very durable and purse friendly. The retractable body means that sheets will not stick to things they shouldn’t.
Nourish Snacks – Coco’nilla Crunch and Monkey Love ($2.00 each): Created by NBC’s TODAY Show nutritionist, Joy Bauer, these snacks are meant to curb your cravings in a sensible way using natural ingredients. Granola and I have a love-hate relationship. Sometimes it’s great, and other times it’s cardboard. These bites fall into the LOVE category. The Monkey Love is my favorite of the two, combining the classic flavors of chocolate and banana. Coco’nilla Crunch was OK. I might have liked it more if I was a fan of coconut.
SinglesSwag values the November box at $80. Using the prices that I found, I get a value of $69. Regardless, both values exceed the price of a single box. I’m so glad that there as a book in this month’s box again. (Side note: one of my coworkers was reading a book that I had received a few month’s back. She and I agreed that there was a lot of valuable info in You Are a Badass.) The f’lint lint roller was my favorite thing in this month’s box. It’s the little things that make me happy. Did you have a favorite item from this month’s box? Let me know with a comment below.
