She Lives Aloha is a quarterly box of items from the 50th state! This box ships quarterly and is $54.95 a box. Maybe you are from Hawaii and want some items from your home state. Maybe you visited once and want to relive the experience (me, me!), or maybe you just love beachy types of items (me, again!). What can you expect?

When you receive a kit, we invite you to take an afternoon and relive your vacation through the sights, sounds, and fragrances of the tropics. Each kit contains 5-7 items that have been crafted with aloha. Each kit will support a Hawaiian charitable org.

The box itself was filled with all kinds of awesome words and phrases, including a couple in Hawaiian , and my name was even on the box (see the very first picture)!
My items were tucked into white tissue paper that was sealed with a sticker.
I received a postcard…
…welcoming me to the She Lives Aloha family!
My items were tucked into shredded sea foam green paper squiggles.
An 8″ x 10″ card listed ways to live aloha throughout the year. Perfect for posting somewhere so I can refer back to it frequently.
I found a brochure inside my box.
The brochure gave an idea of how I might put the items to use.
The back of the brochure listed social media accounts and described how you might be featured on the next brochure!
This is my first ever She Lives Aloha box!
Everything in the box!
Liana Hee Tiki Weekly Planner ($20) Our first item comes from an Etsy vendor who designs beautiful items. Check out the adorable hula dancer!
There is space to jot down to-dos from Sunday to Saturday. You can date the planner yourself as you use it.
There are 50 pages and this planner is big, 8″ x 10.5″.
Passion 8 Bliss Maui Sugar Mamas ($6.50) Warning; these cookies are highly addictive and I’m not 100% sure how to order more.
Ingredients include passionfruit (lilikoi), white chocolate chips, and I am assuming mass quantities of butter.
They are buttery shortbread cookies with a hint of something special, very crispy and caramelized and just little bites of heaven.
Island Memories San Francisco Plumeria Candle I could only find this vendor’s Facebook page but not a website, maybe this is only local to San Francisco. According to their page, they make “hand poured 100% soy candles scented with essential oils”. I’ve never smelled plumeria oil before, but this smells like a traditional candle, with a strong cold throw.
The candle scent is sweet and floral when cold, and I could smell it from the next room when it was burning. I’m not usually a fan of florals but I really like this one!
Kauai Roastery Mele Kalikimaka Coffee Blend ($12 based on similar blends) Did you know coffee is grown on the Hawaiian Islands?
According to the brand’s website, their blends contain at least 30% Hawaiian-grown coffee. Perhaps the rest comes from Peru, if the picture on the back of the bag is a clue. I am not a coffee drinker so I passed along this bag of ground coffee to my husband and daughter and they thought it was really good!
Matsumoto Studios Mahalo Notecard ($3 for similar) “Mahalo” translates to thank you (or gratitude, admiration, etc.) in English so you could send this card to someone who has done something nice for you, or maybe to thank someone for a gift. It comes with a light grey envelope and is 3.5″ x 5″ and blank on the inside.
A Postcard was included and you can fill in your name and stick it on your desk or put the name of a friend and send it to them to brighten their day.
A Sticker can be placed on a phone, planner, water bottle, or wherever you like. It says “Ohana tops everything” and according to Lilo (from Lilo and Stitch, my kids love that movie!), ohana means family.
I just visited Hawaii for the first time about 6 months ago so my very first She Lives Aloha box brought back amazing memories of one of the best trips of my life! I enjoyed the assortment – I received stationery, edibles, and a tropical floral candle. The quality of each item was wonderful and I actually liked every piece (well, my family liked the coffee)! Those cookies though, I think they are from heaven. Then again, I think Hawaii is paradise on Earth!
