The Box: Original Grab Bag
My Grab Bag Love arrived in perfect condition with a lovely note that described the bag’s contents. I also received a sweet handwritten card from Grab Bag Love Founder Jamie. This themed bag promises to showcase an assortment of amazing hand-selected goods ranging from cosmetics to fashion accessories. I can’t wait to check it out!
LAQA & CO. Nail Polish in Nookie
Full size 0.3 fl oz., value: USD $11.00
The eye-catching LAQA & CO. packaging features vivid artwork created by Manchester-based artist James Roper. I adore this sweet raspberry shade which is absolutely perfect for spring (it would look totally hot paired with white or floral). I’m new to the LAQA & CO. brand, which offers a variety of lip pencils, nail polish, and nail polish pens. The nail polish formula applied smoothly and appeared full color after two coats. Love it!
Ban.do Glitterati Twist Scarf
Full size, value: USD $20.00
You may have seen this trendy Ban.do Glitterati Twist Scarf worn by celebrities like Taylor Swift. This versatile wired chiffon scarf can be tied in a bow, wrapped around your hair, or even formed into a chic rosette. The possibilities are endless! The bold pink color is so fun and the glitter accents provide a nice sparkle. This scarf is also available in Navy, Red, or Blush to match any outfit. This summer accessory is a must-have, y’all.
Aveda Rosemary Mint Conditioner
Sample size 1.7 fl oz., value: USD $2.40
I’ve frequented Aveda salons in the past and I know, first-hand, that Aveda hair care products are heavenly! This daily Rosemary Mint Conditioner adds weightless body and shine while preventing tangles and static. This stuff smells amazing, combining rosemary with cool peppermint. During this morning’s shower, I applied the conditioner and my hair felt completely smooth afterward. I only wish I had the matching Aveda shampoo!
BONUS: Barre Bar in Pirouette Cinnamon Pecan
Full size 50g, value: USD $2.50
Barre Bar was developed by two professional dancers who wanted to make a snack for real athletes using real ingredients. Pirouette Cinnamon Pecan, the original Barre flavor, pairs cinnamon and nuts to create a delicious chewy bar. The taste is amazing! Think: nutty with a hint of spicy sweetness. This healthy snack is perfect for a post-workout pick-me-up or a mid-day treat. Other Barre bar flavors include Black Swan Chocolate Berry and Ballerina Spirulina (YUM!).
