umba box number two


My second Umba box arrived! Let’s take a look at the contents, shall we?
(If you missed my first post about it, click here to read it!)

I have a soft spot for paper goods, ironically. So much of my life is technology-heavy, for convienence, but I could linger in a paper store for hours.

I love the Hunter Boots print from BrightBold&Beautiful! And her shop is filled with other beautiful prints as well. Like this one–I love it. 

The stationary from River & Bridge is adorable too. I love the font that “hello” is written in. She has a bunch of other cute options in her shop as well! 

Finally, the necklace is made by Figs & Ginger. While it’s not my personal style, I appreciate the delicate handmade nature of it. Also? They are located in Ashville which is just a few hours west of Raleigh. And if these were gold, I would buy them immediately!  

I really enjoyed this Umba box. Like I mentioned in the first post, it is a little pricey for a monthly subscription–but I completely understand why. Handmade items are special, and simply cost more to make than mass produced products.

I appreciate the detail and craftsmanship that goes into what I’ve recieved in the box. I have one more box to get as a part of my 3 month subscription, so look out for it next month!

    Kate, have you thought of partnering with Umbra box? I would subscribe if I knew that I might get a piece of your jewelry. It’s all so beautiful!

    Hi! Love your Blog! You once had a tutorial for a style called the “easier than it looks updo.” Is that tutorial still available?

    Love the concept! Thanks for posting! I love to see what you get. I’m young and can’t afford the whole box but I think I might head on over and pick up a watercolor print!

    I just ordered the Essie print and the Kate Spade print. 🙂 I have been searching for the right prints to go above my make up table and this is perfect! I messaged the owner to see if she possibly has any lipstick ones too. I guess the Umbra box concept does work. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!!

    Kate. You should really check out this site. They send out boxes for you to try then you review products in them. You would be perfect for this!! Thought about you and my daughter when I saw this. God bless!

    This would be a perfect gift for any mom! Thanks for sharing!

    Kate, you should look in to an Ipsy Bag Subscription. Its like Birch Box, but more makeup than skin care. I think you would like it! And you could blog about it!

    To date, mens glasses make the most of this kind of scantiness and make all of their method to the highest ranking regarding men’s favourite embellishment in one cerebrovascular event.
