Now what is Peaches & Petals?
“Peaches and Petals is a member based monthly subscription service that hand-curates each box with items that exemplify the woman who’s not afraid of adventure. She’s open-minded, free-spirited, and loves relentlessly.”

Wow, it sounds like Peaches & Petals gives gifts for the heroine of romance novels. AWESOMESAUCE.

What do they include?
“Each month’s box will vary with different items all to tickle your senses. We love hand-selecting items in beauty and fashion accessories. Items could be trendy accessories and jewelry like scarves, hats, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, rings, watches, new beauty products like dry shampoos, eye makeup remover, shades of nail polish, eyeshadow and blush, pampering products like mud masks, skin restoring gels/creams, and who knows, we could be really adventurous the next month! Each box will contain 3-5 items and some months we may feel super excited and throw in an additional item!”

Everything listed sounds fun, so I don’t know about you, but I’m excited to dive into this box.

How much?
Each month costs $14.99 and there are options for gift subscriptions and prepaying 3, 6 or 12 month subs.

Enough with the facts, let’s get to the fun!

An adorable box arrives that will most likely end up recycled to hold someone’s Christmas gift.
Box
Inside we get a handy dandy info card and a spoiler for December. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate these details. Even when I’m not blogging about a box, I want to know something about the items selected. I haven’t seen too many subs include a spoiler for the next box so that’s a really great addition.
Info Card December Spoiler

Scarf
The Fringe Scarf

Description: “Your GUARANTEED spoiler for November! A beautiful fall scarf, perfect for any autumn occasion.
Verdict: Gift
This scarf is very soft and quite lovely. Thanks to my sub box addiction, I have an impressive stockpile of scarves in my closet, so this is going to make someone a lovely Christmas Gift.

Pantene
Pantene Pro-V Shampoo & Conditioner Travel Set
Description: The perfect hair pair on your next weekend getaway!.”
Verdict: Did Walmart have a sale?
A travel hair set is a great idea for the holiday season, but Pantene is available at just about every drugstore or chain store for like $2. A more interesting or unusual brand would have been a more appropriate choice.

Candle
Sweet Treat Dessert Candle

Description: ”Cute food with a double personality! Sure to make you smile!
Verdict: A trip to the dollar store?
A cupcake candle could be cute but this one is on the cheap side and the packaging is cracked. It could be a cute little stocking stuffer but I’m not feeling like this is a good item for a women’s beauty and style box.

Cards
Thank You Cards

Description: Take a moment to say a few words of gratitude to the people in your life. This simple act, can bring a smile to a friend’s face that they’ll never forget.”
Verdict: Hit!
I keep a stockpile of greeting cards, and thank you cards tend to be the most useful. I like the vintage chalk graphic on these and I’ll definitely use them. I also like that they go with the “Thanksgiving” season.

Bracelet
Infinity Forever Bracelet

Description: An understated beauty that falls effortlessly on your wrist.”
Verdict: Lovely design, cheap fabrication
I really like the infinity design on this, but I feel like with simple jewelry you really need high quality materials and it’s clear this is a cheap piece of jewelry. Perhaps excluding some of the other items and putting in a gold plated, silver plated or even a stainless steel piece might have been a better option.

Totally Adorable Tea Infusers
Description: Warm cold mornings and nights with a cup of hot tea. This item will surely be your favorite tea pal.”
Verdict: Gift
I’m not much of a tea drinker so this will end up being gifted. I’m not sure how this item really fits into the aesthetic Peaches & Petals is going for, but it’s cute and practical.

OVERALL
Peaches & Petals November 2015
Verdict:
A bit of an identity crisis, but has potential

I received this box for free for review purposes and its normal cost is $14.99. I do think the scarf itself is worth that much, but unfortunately a lot of the other items seem to be really inexpensive and don’t necessarily go with the theme or the aesthetic this sub seems going for. If I were curating, I would include the scarf, the cards and find a bracelet that uses higher end materials and just include 3 items. Or perhaps as my third item, find a more luxurious travel hair and beauty set to include. As far as beauty and style subs go, this is one of the less expensive options so despite the uneven curation, you may want to give it a shot.

Next month’s spoiler is a kimono so if you like it and want to subscribe, use PEACHTHERAPY for 50% off your first month’s box.

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 trying to help real people, while making up stories about imaginary ones. 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.
