The June 2016 Gentleman’s Box including the following items:

~Sock Fancy Socksย ($12) – Sean has another pair of socks from Sock Fancy and wears them often to school and church. The quality and texture is superior to just about any brand out there and the price is great. He loves the color, plus he didn’t have any green socks so that was a bonus!

~ Something Strong Striped Tie ($30) – Sean absolutely loves to wear ties whether it be to school, church, dinner or just going out with friends. As with the socks, he didn’t have a green tie, so the color and theย striped style was a nice bonus.

~ Harry’s Razor ($18) –ย This is the first the Gentleman’s Box included a razor in their boxes and wow they chose wisely with Harry’s. This is not your dollar store blade and razor, this razor has weight and a slick handle. Harry’s makes their own blades and razors as well as accessories on their website which allows for their low prices.

~ Woodchuck USA Wooden Tie Clip ($30) -Nothing looks more sharp on a nice looking tie than a fancy looking Tie Clip and Woodchuck USA has quality, real stainless steel and real wood face tie bars/clips. We have received products by Woodchuck USA before in previous months boxes and were really impressed, this month no different. He wore it yesterday and received 3 complements.

~ La Fresh Sunscreen Wipes ($1.66) – Here in North Carolina our temps already reaching the upper 90’s before the heat index. Sunscreen is a must, these wipes have SPF 30 and are guaranteed to protect you in the sun for hours. Sean used his wipes when he went to beach, he said they weren’t greasy and just as stated didn’t irritate his skin. Easy to apply.

Worldly Box Monthly Subscription

I never thought I would find myself anxiously waiting each month for a monthly subscription box that was jewelry themed, that was until I found Worldly Box on Instagram. Worldly Box allows you customize your box by filling out a short survey when subscribing, telling them what you like and prefer. They also support Fair Trade, which I am very passionate about, as well as Empowering Women Globally. I have been getting Worldly Box for months now, and sadly due to my other site crashing I lost all my other reviews/post for my previous months, but I wanted to catch you up on my June box. Here are a few previous favorite items.

I am never without one of their pieces of jewelry or items on me daily.

Here is my February box from Worldly Box

WorldyBox is $19.99 per month or for 3 months it is $50.97

Since each item I was not able to locate online and their are unique to each Country their is no finding out how much each item is, but I can tell you after months of getting WorldlyBox you are definitely more than $20’s worth each month. Each month you receive at least 5 items and Mary who curates my box lol knows my taste in jewelry better than my husband does!!! I have never been disappointed in any item or box!

This month all items came from Peru. I love the Llama keychains which are made from sustainable llama fur as well as the beautiful mix stones necklace.
