Peaches and Petals is a lifestyle and beauty box with a retro sort of leaning. They promise a mix of products that are both bring beauty and style to your door each month. I could probably use more of both every day to be honest. It seems to be eclectic but usually not too heavy of the beauty products which is a welcome change for many of us subscription box enthusiasts!
Cost: $19.99 a month
The Theme? Under the Boardwalk!
Swimsuit Cover Up: I am getting an excellent collection of swimsuit cover ups! This pattern is bright and perfect to throw on when I don’t want people seeing my rump as I casually saunter to where the cooler is to refill my drink. I do that a lot, so something easy and cute is key. After all, I don’t want everyone to know that I am throwing it on because I want to be modest. Nope! I want people to assume that I am put together and have nice things that I coordinate.
After a few drinks the facade does fade…
Sunglasses: I wouldn’t have bought these for myself as the style is not the best on my face but these will be perfect to throw in the car. I also can have them if someone needs to borrow sunglasses because I cannot tell you how many times people have borrowed my sunnies only to walk away with them by accident.
These are good for doing tipping down and doing one of the 80s style check outs…
Beach Beverage Companion: This is cute, and can hold a lot of drink! I laughed and laughed and laughed at the whole idea of a “Beach Beverage Companion.” Why? Because it gives the whole thing an air of sophistication my day drinking usually lacks. As if my beverage were an old lady of means who was widowed and in need of a young lady companion to come and live at her estate. Someone she could tell all her stories of yore to as she walks toward the sunset…
Wait… that’s kinda what I do when I am day drinking anyway.
Starfish Project Jewelry (Earrings): These are so simple and cute! I am digging that it is turquoise and it is perfect for summer! I LOVE that this product is from an organization with a social enterprise that cares for women who have been exploited by human trafficking! They have such pretty things for sale on their site as well. So a great place to pick up gifts for those fire signs who have a birthday coming up!
It’s like I am wearing a little piece of the sea when I wear these!
Alterna Stylist Summer Ocean Waves Hair Spray: I don’t really use beach spray a lot but am going to try this out. It is from a fancy brand and it smells good! Also, I really want to be able to rock the air dry look in the worst way… Like the WORST way. I have really have a big envy of those ladies who can just air dry their hair and it looks good. When I air dry I have weird waves in odd places about my head, and frizz… oh the frizz..
Is using ocean spray on the ocean the same as bringing sand the beach?
Beachy Surprise – Beach Tote Tags: Now that all my beach bags are from subscription boxes I can imagine all the other ladies who get the same subscriptions hitting the beach the same day as me. The chaos! How will we know who owns which bag? I will be ahead of the curve with these!
Now, they better not all go by the same name “Subscriptionista” or that would be really weird…
Verdict: Peaches & Petals did a great job with the theme this month! I am glad that I don’t have to spend too much time “Under the Boardwalk” as it is usually pretty dirty under there. I will be spending as much time as I can by the pool or on the beach because I need to distress this summer in the worst way! I can put most of these items to work right away and the sunglasses though not my style are good for a back up.
