January 2018 Spiffster Club Box Review

January 2018 Spiffster Box Review 1

Some of my favourite accessories to collect are shoes, earrings, and scarves. For Mr. Writing Beauty, it’s ties. They add a pop of uniqueness and personality to any outfit and are an easy way to make the most of a small wardrobe.

Good quality ties can be expensive though and the selection at department stores doesn’t change frequently enough for tie enthusiasts to build a diverse collection.

Thankfully, Spiffster Club offers an affordable monthly tie subscription so that anyone can build a dapper collection of ties that fit their style. There are five different variations of tie styles and patterns to choose from including silk ties made from the finest silk fabrics, original or skinny ties made from premium microfiber, cotton, wool, and silk materials, and bow ties in self-tying or pre-tied options. Ties come in multiple patterns such as solid, striped, paisley, foulard, pin dotted, polka dotted, plaid, and knit. There is also a sock collection for those who love to keep their feet looking stylish and a Shop where ties can be purchased individually. I think the shop would be a great place to look when shopping for groomsmen ties. In terms of subscription options, they start at only $10 per month and you can save 20% for as long as you are subscribed with the code BEAUTYWRITER.

In January, Mr. Writing Beauty was lucky enough to try the January 2018 Spiffster Club Box*. Read on to see which tie he received and to read our thoughts on it.

January 2018 CatLadyBox Review

January 2018 Cat Lady Box Review 1

Happy Caturday! Today I have a special post for all the cats and cat lovers out there.

One of my most important roles is cat mom, and I have no problem admitting that I’m a crazy cat lady. If it weren’t for Mr. Writing Beauty’s allergies, I would like to think that we would have more than two cats.

I'm sure that you can imagine how excited I was when I found out that there’s a subscription box for cat lovers.

CatLadyBox sends its members a monthly selection of unique and high-quality cat-themed items such as clothing, jewellery, home decor, and cat toys that you can’t find anywhere else. There is a CatLadyBox option that includes 3 items for cat ladies and a CRAZY CatLadyBox that sends 3 items for cat ladies and 2 additional goodies for cats. Boxes start at $34.99 per month and feature exclusive designs and limited-edition items.

Other great features of this subscription include a gift option (I don’t know any cat ladies who wouldn’t be excited to receive a CatLadyBox as a gift), the opportunity to purchase individual items from past boxes in the CatLadyBox Shop (they currently have a cat makeup brush set!), and the CatLadyBox Cares program which allows you to nominate your favourite rescue organization for a donation. Each week, CatLadyBox chooses one to receive a monetary donation and a box of CatLadyBox toys for their kitties to enjoy while awaiting their forever homes. My cats are both rescues, so I really appreciate companies that give back to animals in need and organizations that work hard to save animals and provide them with food and shelter.

CatLadyBox also supports independent artists and small businesses by including items in the monthly boxes from art galleries, boutique shops, craft festivals, and independent artist sites.

My cats and I were lucky enough to try the January 2018 CRAZY CatLadyBox*. Read on for our thoughts and to see what we received.
