Fair Ivy: Package #1 – October 2013

For the skinny on a Fair Ivy subscription and a discount code, jump down below, but now we move on to the review!

My first of the October packages of Fair Ivy arrived and this one featured another item from Fabled Soap Co.   They also had products included in the August Fair Ivy boxes.

Like August, October’s package also included a bar of soap but this one was the appropriately seasonal “Pumpkin Spice” and was wrapped in some seriously cute October print paper.

Pumpkin Soap

Verdict: Love!

I love pumpkin and spicy fall scents so this is wonderful, and the October paper felt extra special for me because my birthday is this month.

Fabled Soap Co. doesn’t appear to sell this bar individually on their website but they feature it in some soap sets where you get 4 bars for $20.00, making the value on this $5.00.

This was a nice little seasonal gem to receive and I can’t wait to see if the other October Fair Ivy items follow this autumn theme!

Do you love the pumpkin scents that pervade everything this time of year or are you tired of pumpkin-all-the-things?

THE BACKSTORY

Fair Ivy is a subscription box of beautifully wrapped, handmade items made by individual artisans.

There are two subscription options:

A jewelry only subscription at $25.00 a month (plus shipping) for 1 jewelry item per month.  (This option will ship in the US, Canada & the UK).

Or

An original subscription at $40.00 a month (plus shipping) of 3 handmade items (1 item will be jewelry).  (This option only ships in the US).

Because the items ship directly from the artisans, if you choose an original subscription you will receive the packages individually throughout the month.

DISCOUNT CODE:  NEWSLETTER2 will get you $2.00 off either subscription.

Once upon a time, long, long ago, Lisa attended Syracuse University where she studied singing in a giant castle surrounded by ice and snow. After she earned her music degree, she headed to the island of Manhattan, down to the West Village, to a place called the New School. There, she earned another degree in the great art of writing stories for children. She currently works on that same island, in the dungeon of an old building, making up stories while she sorts through endless stacks of papers, just dreaming of working somewhere with windows. She is currently working on several novels and hopes to write her way to that aforementioned windowed place. Her first book, “The Ice Maiden’s Tale,” a fairy tale adventure was released on May 30, 2017 and is up for sale on Amazon. In the meantime, she keeps herself occupied by obsessing over subscription boxes and home renovations.
