Dottiebox Mini Subscription Box Review – October 2015

Between the deer eating my mums and the hard frost killing the summer flowers, there isn’t much left outside for pictures!


Wish Bracelet
Dream Willow Studio Karma Circle Wish Bracelet

Dream Willow Studio Karma Circle Wish Bracelet: The above picture shows the directions clearly. Make a wish. Your wish will come true once the bracelet naturally breaks.

J constantly wishes that Pokemon were alive.

The bracelet is a fun idea. I am passing this to my sister who will enjoy making the wish and wearing a bracelet. I do love my tree bracelet that I received in my regular Dottie Box. I am going to put the Lovebird Necklace on my holiday wishlist.


Dream Willow Studio Tree Bracelet from the Regular Dottie Box, Not the Mini Box

I love this bracelet from the regular Dottie Box and not from the DottieBox Mini Box.  I wore it to Tai Chai this week along with my twig necklace from the Relish Accessory Box.


Posh Organics Lip Balm
Posh Skincare Lip Balm

Posh Skincare Lip Balm Eucalyptus + Lemon: I started writing this review a few days ago. I love the lip balm picture because of the simplicity of the lip balm with the dandelion.  A few dandelions survived the hard frost. The lip balm smells strongly of Eucalyptus upon opening the tin. Then it dies down into a blend of eucalyptus and lemon. The texture is not sticky. The eucalyptus scent does carry up into your nose making it perfect to use on those stuffy nose days. Posh Skincare was recently featured in the September Kloverbox. I’ve been using my facial oil from Kloverbox every day.

Everyone needs to ooh and aah. I worked hard trying to find flowers in my yard!


Black Dahilia Laquer
Black Dahlia Lacquer Blue-Green Earth

Black Dahlia Lacquer: I love the color! Black Dahlia is a vegan, 5-free nail polish company located in Texas, USA. Black Dahlia offers a subscription box and mystery bags. I saw in the FAQ that they can create custom colors. Can you imagine having your own signature nail color? Edited to add the nail polish name to the picture.

Zelda wants a nail polish color named after her.


I can't find the nail polish remover!

J is feeling under the weather. I came up with this great idea while writing about the nail polish to do a swatch while he is sleeping. I did one finger nail thinking I could touch it up with nail polish remover. I should have taken my time because I can’t find the nail polish remover!!! What you see in the picture is one coat without a base coat or top coat.  I know it looks sloppy because I was rushing and thought I wold fix it real quick with the remover. I promise that I do know how to paint my nails properly 🙂 I love the color.

The lesson of the day is to know the location of the nail polish remover before painting your nails because someone may have moved it!


The skeleton is not a real cat!

Zelda is sniffing over the Halloween cat decoration that J picked out from Target. Puss in Boots is afraid of it.


There are a few October Mini Dottiebox without a subscription available for purchase at $11.00 plus $3.00 shipping. Remember the tree bracelet is not part of the October Dottie Mini Box.


Verdict: I always enjoy DottieboxMini Boxes. The boxes have a great variation from fun to practical. The October box is a big hit for me.


What do you think of the October Dottiebox Mini Box? Have you ever misplaced your nail polish remover? Share below and anything else on your mind!

    Ooh! Aah! Pretty pictures! Really, even without many flowers, you have the best pictures! I like the use of mulch, greenery, red leaves… and cats of course! It looks like Zelda is kissing the skeleton cat. LOL

    That lip balm sounds like something I would like and the polish is very pretty! Great review!!

      Thank you for the oohs and aahs 🙂 J moved the skeleton cat over to her. She gave it a good sniff over.

    Great box and love the cat pictures! The lip balm is calling my name, with this crazy weather of hot – cold – hot my allergies/sinuses aren’t happy! I hope your J feels better! I also tried a color on one of my nails once and discovered I had no polish remover! Luckily my husband got some for me on the way home from work! Lol!

      Thank you for the compliments! The weather is crazy here too. My husband almost bought some on the way home from work. He came home and laugh at my one blue fingernail.I would do all of them except I received a couple in my bonus Goodeboxes and want to swatch them too.

        Not as obvious as yours as my swatch was a neutral but I got 9 unmanicured nails!

    Beautiful nail color! What is the name of it?
    Thanks for all your awesome reviews!! Especially love that your cats are willing to make guest appearances 🙂

      I can’t believe I forgot the nail color name! It is Blue-Green Earth. I wrote the review over a couple of days and misplaced my Dottiebox card. I am fairly certain it is a color made for Dottiebox.

    As always you rock and the kitty skeleton pic made me giggle!
