I always appreciate a hand-written note in a subscription box!
The back of the note talked about self-care, which is what this box is all about this month.
There was a card that stated you could receive a 30-minute complimentary coaching conversation, which is supposed to be $125 value.
The back of the card listed the four coaches and their websites. I am assuming you can contact them through their websites.
Next, there was a product information brochure.
The brochure mentioned the products and services for this month’s box, along with the retail value of each item.
The back of the brochure tells you how to reach out to Go Love Yourself.
Lots of white paper squiggles kept everything cushioned on the journey. There was a glass item inside and it was safely wrapped in bubble wrap.
Everything in my box!
Love Bomb Wine Glass ($13) is a generous 17 ounce glass and while it is dishwasher safe, Love Bomb suggests washing by hand to preserve the lettering. I know cuss words seem to be in fashion now but I’m an old-fashioned kind of gal.
Mama’s Southern Love Oatmeal Lavender Tub Tea ($8) I couldn’t find this item in the Etsy shop but there are a couple of other handmade items listed. I appreciate that the ingredients are all-natural, only lavender buds, oatmeal, and Epsom salts. Just pop this baby in the bathtub and soak your cares away, then discard after using, no muss no fuss. The smell is amazing, I stuck it in the glass and it’s a sort of natural air freshener, at least until my next tub time.
The Go Love Yourself Journal (card lists value at $7.95) is an exclusive item but you can find blank journals all over the place.
I’ve not seen journals with dots instead of blank pages before, I believe this is what is used to make a multimedia journal AKA bullet journal. You can use it as you work through the main book (shown below) or grab your pens, scissors, tape, glue, markers, stickers, etc. and make a mini scrapbook.
I love it when I get bookmarks and this one goes with the featured book of the month.
The Self Love Experiment By Shannon Kaiser (List price $17, currently selling for $12.95) is the self-help book of the month. It also comes with access to the forthcoming workbook ($59.99 value) and webinar ($150 value), however, I just couldn’t figure out how to access those two products.
Put a stop to self-sabotage and overcome your fears so that you can gain the confidence you need to reach your goals and become your own best friend.
Too many people seem to believe that they are not allowed to put themselves first or go after their own dreams out of fear of being selfish or sacrificing others’ needs. The Self-Love Experiment rectifies this problem. Whether you want to achieve weight loss, land your dream job, find your soul mate, or get out of debt, it all comes back to self-love and accepting yourself first. Shannon Kaiser learned the secrets to loving herself, finding purpose, and living a passion-filled life after recovering from eating disorders, drug addictions, corporate burnout, and depression.
Shannon walks you through her own personal experiment, a simple plan that compassionately guides you through the process of removing fear-based thoughts, so you can fall in love with life. If you want to change your outcome in life, you have to change your daily habits and perspective. Shannon takes you on this great journey into self-love and true self-acceptance.
I not-so-randomly opened to a passage about appreciating your looks, which I have always struggled with. I look forward to reading this book and seeing if it can help me change my perception about myself.
Self Love Affirmations ($19.99) “28 Ways to Love Yourself in 28 Days”, which means there’s one card a day for the shortest month of the year.
These are very cute and the idea is that you carry one around with you in your pocket and then have at it at the appropriate time. You could glue them into the journal and write all about it if you wanted to.
Body Positivity With Flair ($25.50) There was a code included so you can sign up for a body positivity e-course (worth $22) along with a bag of confetti ($3.50) that you can carry around in your pocket so you can throw some in the air at random times and shout “yay me!”, sort of like being your own cheer squad. Make sure to not be an a$$ and clean up after yourself, that stuff isn’t biodegradable (see, I can cuss when it’s called for!). I have registered for the course and can’t wait to see how it plays out.
Gourmet Glitter Rimming Sugar ($3.50) I thought this was sample of eye shadow at first, it was so tiny and in a similar container.
It turns out this is sugar that can be used for rimming your wine glass before imbibing, whether you drink wine, cola, or Kool-Aid. You place it in a dish, moisten the rim of a glass, and then give it a twist in the sugar.
Huna Bands ($14.99, on sale for $4.99) This reminds me of wearing a rubber band around the wrist and then snapping it when you think of some habit you are trying to change. I guess the rubber band has changed but the idea behind it is basically the same.
Thinking about smoking? Snap that band. Want a third serving of ice cream? No way José, snap that band. Feeling down because of your pant size, big feet, flat hair, or whatever? Snap that band, take a deep breath, and then either fix it or forget it.
I was worried it wouldn’t fit but it did. Obsessing about how you have sun spots on your hand? Snap that band and hope the redness covers up the brown stuff. Also maybe consider wearing more sunscreen.
Gold Dusted Champagne Gummies ($6.99) There was a little bag of champagne flavored gummy bears that are dusted with edible gold glitter.
Cute and sparkly. Just like the rimming sugar above, I prefer my consumables to be in their original packaging with a list of ingredients included. I have stomach issues and worry that since these should be shipped with cold packs then maybe they shouldn’t be in a sub box. I did give them a try and they were pretty strong.
I like the idea behind the Go Love Yourself Box but some of the items kind of made me wary since I prefer edibles to be in factory packaging. I also felt like some of the values were a little inflated ($3.50 for 1 1/2 teaspoons of purple sugar?). I came up with a value of $102.87 for the items in the box, including the Bo Po e-course, and not including the webinar and online workbook, since I couldn’t tell how to access those two items. Of course, if you take advantage of those offerings then the value increases by another $200+. I look forward to reading the Self Love Experiment and the affirmation cards are cute. I have also looked into starting a bullet journal and now here’s one in my hands. While I don’t appreciate the words on the wine glass I do appreciate the sentiment and the glass is rather sturdy. The bath tea is also nice and smells amazing. I think this subscription is nice for anyone who is really focused on making changes and who is prepared to put in the time to make those changes happen since it involves reading a book, journaling, watching webinars, working through e-books, and potentially calling a self-help coach. The February box had items to help you unwind and relax while working on accepting yourself for who you are. Since this time of year usually is focused on romantic love, it was a refreshing change.
