Artemis & Xena February 2017

Subscription Boxes are becoming more popular amongst everyone, as no matter what your interests are, I guarantee there will be a box out there for you. As you know, I am subscribed to Infinity Crates, a crate filled with entertainment goodness. I love receiving this every month, as I never know what I’m going to receive until I open it up.

I came across a new Subscription Box, Artemis & Xena, I immediately fell in love as I love the concept of the box. Ani founded Artemis & Xena after struggling with her mental well-being as a teenager and during the first year of University. A change of thinking and lifestyle helped her to get through her difficulties, therefore she wants to help other women who may be facing difficulties too using what helped her.

By creating a well-being Subscription Box for both teenage girls and women, with an amazing aim to empower women and cheer them up every month. I can certainly agree with this statement, as I was very happy with what was included in the box. The boxes are based on a theme every month, February‘s theme Love Yourself, ties in nicely with Valentine’s Day.

It’s amazing how pretty Ani made the box, I love the addiction of the Washi Tape across the fronts, adds a simple but effective decoration. I was being soo careful when I opened this as I didn’t want to ruin it. Inside I found everything neatly wrapped in this pretty reusable pink floral tissue paper! I loved this and I’ll definitely be keeping it to use it for future blog posts.

I love the card inside, very pretty and I love that it includes the theme of the box! Just as a nice little reminder if you had forgotten. When I opened the box up, it smelt amazing! Made me want to just rip the tissue paper to find out where the smell was coming from. It completely made me excited to see what was inside, of course, I was not disappointed!

I used to love temporary tattoos when I was growing up, especially the ones with cute animals, I sometimes received them in my sweets and couldn’t wait until I was home to put them on my arms. I’m excited to receive these, as I know they’ve become popular recently, especially the gold temporary tattoos, I look forward to using them!

IMG_9290

Food… I always love receiving food and trying something new. The milk chocolate heart like amazing, I wish there were more of these because they are exactly the type of sweets I like. It was the first thing to disappear from the box, oopps. The Love Heart Sweets I won’t be eating them as I don’t like them but I do know someone who will eat them, the partner.

Recently I have been into trying herbal tea, so I’m really excited to see a herbal tea from Pukka included. I love that it’s flavour is called Love, I definitely love the taste and smell of this tea. It feels very relaxing and calming, well worth the five minutes to allow it to infuse probably. All the ingredients go really well together, a match made in heaven.

IMG_9291

When I was younger, I adored Nail Stickers, I used to love just sticking them on my nails after painting them, so I can see myself using these, especially the Cupcakes! I can picture the ring finger being a Cupcake with the other nails painted. I’m really excited to use these, hopefully they will be as easy as they look to use. Sometimes these can be a pain in the butt.

IMG_9292

These little stationery items I am in love! The Washi Tape, amazing, I can see myself sticking this on Notebooks and my Planner to add some decorations. I love Sticky Notes, I normally use these to highlight pages in books that I use for University. These though, I’ll probably use in my Planner to add a bit of colour. I’ll stick them in and then write on top of them.

The Buttons I am not sure what I’ll use these for, maybe in my Scrapbook, I suppose they can work in there! I don’t think I would use them for actual Buttons on a jacket or something. More of a crafty use with my Scrapbook or Planner. The final crafty item I received was these little confetti, adorable I love, they look rally nice in the background and I can see myself using them in future photos.

IMG_9293

I found the source of the amazing smell! It’s these amazing mini aromatherapy glitter heart-shaped bath bombs in the scent Rose, I am in LOVE! I can not wait to use these, especially as there’s no animal testing and vegan friendly, so I’m hoping this makes them okay with my sensitive skin. These are also created by the Etsy company Dreamybath, natural handmade bath & skincare products.

I love that there’s an introduction of Etsy stores here, I think this is an amazing thing to give these smaller businesses more credit. I am definitely going to take a look at her other products! The Collection Mardi Grass Lip Balm is amazing, makes my Lips feel amazing afterwards as well as smelling soo good. Good enough to eat shall I say, I think that’s bad though, oopps.

It feels like it’s getting colder as spring approaches so this is perfect to keep my Lips feeling fresh. A heart-shaped Beauty Blender umm why not! This is soo pretty but I’m not sure how well it will blend make-up, I won’t be able to test this out, as you know I’m not one for make-up. I know a couple of people who could put this to use.

I have always been a massive fan of colouring in, I used to always colour when I was younger, it was a favourite of mine whenever I traveled anywhere with the family. God knows how many different colouring books I had, I never ever seemed to finish them. I love these little colouring pages as they have meaningful messages on them. Very simple designs and I can not wait to colour these in!

The next item I was a little bit unsure over, because I didn’t know what it was! After having a look at the information leaflet I found out it was an envelope full of positive self-love affirmations which I love! These are perfect for the theme of the box, there’s a total of 31 in the envelope so you can open it each morning and pick one out for a whole month.

I love the thought that went into these, there’s some lovely phrases like ‘Today, I choose me’, ‘My struggles are opportunities to learn and grow’ and ‘I am learning each and everyday’ of course there’s so many more. They also made me smile when I read all of them, I would love to see something similar like this in the next box, as you can do so much with this idea.

IMG_9298

Another item that made the box smell AMAZING, were these heart-shaped soy waxed melts. I can not wait to try these on my Scentsy, I would love to have my room smelling like this, I can not place the exact smell, but they are in the scent Love Spell perfect for the theme of the box. Just like the mini aromatherapy glitter hear-shaped bath bombs these are handmade by DollysCandles.

I love that Artemis & Xena have included different Etsy stores, as it gets the amazing work out there that these people create all by themselves. I actually might check out both stores and see what else they produce. This little butterfly is really cool, he’s a wall sticker so you can pretty much stick it anywhere you want! This butterfly is definitely brightening up my room, pride of place on my bookcase.

IMG_9301

In another envelope was this collection of beads to make my own bracelet this is really cool and I’ve always loved creating my own bracelet. I think it’s a sense of personalisation, you can create anything you want. I love that there’s letter beads aswell, so you can try and spell out something, I’m not quite sure on what I’ll be spelling. I like that there’s a variation on the styles and colours of the beads.

IMG_9302

I also received a nice little collection of jewellery, first up a pair of love earrings, these are a little heavy so I’m not sure if I’ll be wearing them much but I do really love them! I also love what was included on the leaflet to describe these, ‘a pair of cute earrings to complement your beauty!’ how adorable is that. Next this lovely heart-shaped necklace, I absolutely adore this, I’ve been wearing it quite a lot recently.

I love that it’s silver as that’s my favourite coloured jewellery to wear. The card that it’s displayed on is really pretty, I love the quote behind it, very inspirational. The last item I received was this bracelet, I love the different charms on it, I’m not sure if it’s a bit busy for me as when you’re wearing it, you can’t see all the different charms.

For my first Artemis & Xena I am really impressed with what I received, this is only their second box so I’m really excited to see their future boxes. I really didn’t expect to get all these items and for the price, I am very impressed. You’ve still got time to pre-order your March box, with the theme of Spring Time. Like other subscription boxes, there are different styles, including monthly, 3 month prepaid or one-off boxes.

Go give some love to Artemis & Xena on their Twitter and Instagram.

Infinity Crates August 2016

It’s here! August’s Infinity Crates has been shipped and delivered.

Infinity Crates is a United Kingdom based monthly subscription box that offers a new theme every month. There are four different crates on offer, Classic Crate for £16.99 plus p&p, Premium Crate for £23.99 plus p&p, Kids Crate for £16.99 plus p&p and T-Shirt Only Crate for £7.99 plus p&p. Every box is guaranteed a POP! Vinyl figure and a T-shirt.

The exclusive theme for this month’s crate is Crew.

The exclusive Pop! Vinyl figure I received this month was Falcon. Like last month, I know this character as he is a main character from Captain America: Civil War. I’m excited with this figure as he’s got his own cute stand! He becomes even more cuter when I found out he was a bobble head! Out of the characters I could have received I am happy, well maybe apart from a character from Toy Story!

IMG_8463.JPG

Along with being guaranteed a Pop! Vinyl figure, you also receive a T-Shirt. This month I received one in the theme of the Avengers. I absolutely adore the Avengers, especially Hawkeye and Captain America. Exactly like last month’s T-Shirt, it is a bright red! So I doubt I will be wearing this tee very much. Maybe it will turn into another bed time tee. I think I will have a pretty neat collection of bed time tees soon!

IMG_8467.JPG

These are the only two big items I received in this month’s crate. I received a cute card holder from The Walking Dead, with my favourite character Daryl Dixon on the front. These always come in handy, especially when you are travelling! Carrying on from the Suicide Squad theme from last month, a small keyring is included. I adore this because after watching the film, I have been addicted to this series!

IMG_8470 (2).JPG

Along with the Suicide Squad keyring, I also received a Joker sticker! This is awesome as I am a massive Joker fan. Now just to find somewhere to put Mr. J. This sticker is the cartoon version of him which makes it even more awesome. I also received another bottle opener this month. This one though is themed around Justice League which is the DC Comics equivalent to the Avengers from Marvel Comics.

Now something that I’m not too interested in is a Dragon Ball Z lanyard. I’m not a massive fan of Dragon Ball Z so I doubt I will use this for anything. It will just add to my lanyard collection! They always seem to come in use for something. I’m not sure what exactly but I’m sure I will find something. It’s bright and vibrant exactly what the Anime television show is.

Infinity Crates July 2016

It’s here! July’s Infinity Crates has been shipped and delivered.

Infinity Crates is a United Kingdom based monthly subscription box that offers a new theme every month. There are four different crates on offer, Classic Crate for £16.99 plus p&p, Premium Crate for £23.99 plus p&p, Kids Crate for £16.99 plus p&p and T-Shirt Only Crate for £7.99 plus p&p. Every box is guaranteed a POP! Vinyl figure and a T-shirt.

I was receiving Birchbox on a monthly bases, a beauty orientation subscription box but for the price, I wasn’t gaining anything. The products I received were never something that I used. So I started looking into other subscription boxes. While browsing the web, I came across Infinity Crates, the fact that I would receive a POP! Vinyl figure and a T-Shirt every month, was a massive selling point to me.

Since May, I have been receiving Infinity Crates and I can tell you now it’s definitely worth the £19.99 price tag including delivery. As I said previously, every month is an exclusive theme, for this month it is TV & Movies!

The exclusive POP! Vinyl figure I received this month was Daredevil. After receiving a Winter Soldier from Captain America Civil War and James Gordon from Gotham, I am happy to see a character I actually know. Within each crate you receive a card explaining what you might find. Out of the different characters, I am glad I received Daredevil, Dory from Finding Nemo would have been cute though!

Daredevil Figure

Within the crates you are also guaranteed T-Shirts, this month I received one in the theme of X-Men with the character Magneto. He isn’t one of my favourite characters but it’s still a cool T-Shirt to wear around the house or evening for bed. I don’t think I shall be wearing this T-Shirt as much as the Deadpool tee I received last month. You can never have too many character tees though!

Magneto Tee

I received two cute little note pads, one The Avengers and the other Deadpool. I think these will come in hand for simple notes, neither are lined so I’m kinda screwed there. I am rubbish at keeping things straight without lines. They are both small so they will come in handy if you’re travelling or just to keep in your handbag. I can see me filling both pads up quite quickly.

Deadpool Avengers

July and August are known for their Summer blockbusters, before the Summer has even probably begun, I have my favourite blockbuster! Suicide Squad is coming out next month and I can not wait. I believe it is going to be my favourite movie of the whole year, well maybe after Deadpool. I was pleased to see some stickers for the DC Comics movie within my crate. As this shows just how up to date they are.

Suicide Squad

Along with the bigger items in the crate, they also supply small items. For this month, there were two badges, one for The Walking Dead and the other for Game of Thrones. These are cute as you can just have them hanging from a lanyard or you could put them on a jacket or bag. They are simple badges so you are able to understand where they are from, especially with showing just zombies.

Next is a Millennium Falcon bottle opener from Star Wars, this is not really my cup of tea but it’s something that is pretty cool, as you always need a bottle opener. The best bit though, it is also a keyring. So you can attach it to your keys so you’ve always got a bottle opener when your on the go. It is not an obvious bottle opener so it’s cool to have it just as a keyring to show off your geekiness when it comes to Star Wars.

Finally is something that wasn’t on the description card so I had to do some guess work. It is a fridge magnet for Ghostbusters. I have never watched the film but the no ghost symbol is pretty famous so I understand where it’s from. With the reboot released this year, this is a cool piece to add to the crate. I think I will add this magnet to the collection we have on our fridge.

Ghostbusters

That’s it for July’s Infinity Crates! If you’ve liked what you’ve seen why not subscribe, it’s a subscription box that I look forward to receiving every month so I hope you would too! You haven’t got long left to subscribe for the August crate so what are you waiting for, head over to their official site HERE for more information.
