    At the end of November I bought some of the past boxes of L.V. Kiki and I love the boxes.

    So I got my winter Happy Rebel box after I filled out this poll; if I had gotten it prior, I would have chosen Happy Rebel at the best box of the year. They got better with each box!

    I was shopping a few days ago and saw the fur ball purse charms/key chains EVERYWHERE! Did anyone besides popsugar include those in boxes? I have a feeling we’ll see more of those (and purse charms generally) this year.

      Hey Artemis, I was noticing that too while I was Christmas shopping! They were all over AND super duper cheap. So weird that they weren’t in any other boxes [that I saw]. I don’t mind purse charms as long as they’re quiet. I like being a quiet walker [so I can startle people!].
