December 2016 GlobeIn Subscription Box Review

GlobeIn is one of the subscription boxes that I have wanted to try for awhile now.  It’s full of handmade items from all over the world. If you love unique items and have a love for learning about other parts of the world, this box is definitely for you!

What’s Included

I just received the December 2016 Artisan GlobeIn Subscription Box and love every single item! There is a little booklet included that will tell you about where each item is made and who makes it. The theme this month is: comfort.  Here is what is included:

Ceramic Cup and Saucer (India)


This is the perfect size for tea!  I love the hand-painted design and that each piece is truly unique!  I’d like to have at least 2 so I’m hoping I can find another in the GlobeIn website shop soon!

Organic Rooibos Tea (South Africa)


I love tea but have never tried Rooibos tea before!  It is described as a naturally caffeine free tea with early, vanilla, and citrus flavors!

Hand-Painted Candles (South Africa)


I don’t think I have ever owned anything from South Africa before so I was a bit excited about these!  They are hand-painted and really unique!  I’m going to hold onto them until after we move and hopefully figure out a way to use them as decor in my oldest son’s bedroom.  His favorite color is blue!

Woven Cotton Throw (South Africa)


I love blankets and throws, especially this time of year!  I’m always cold and have them all over the house!  This one is about the size of a large bath towel so it’s perfect for wrapping around you!

Palm Leaf Basket (Mexico)


Every month the Artisan box includes a hand woven basket.  I love that GlobeIn makes recommendations on how to use them!  This month they suggested using it to store tea bags!  I love this idea!



I think this is just a little extra that GlobeIn included, but I love the quote!  So very true!

How to Buy

The GlobeIn Artisan Box is a monthly subscription box.  You can choose a month-to-month subscription or a 3, 6, or 12-month subscription.  The price ranges from $40/month to $35/month depending on the length of the subscription.  Artisan Box subscribers have the ability to customize their theme and purchase add-ons for members-only prices.  You can save $10 off of a 3-month or longer subscription by using the code WELCOME when signing up.

There is also a GlobeIn Club subscription that is only $10/month and includes one curated item a month.  You get the woven basket and the ability to add other items at members-only prices as well.

Finally, there is the ability to shop on the website!  There are so many really unique items available! I haven’t seen the items in this box sold separately yet, but I’m going to keep checking back because I really want another tea cup!

Have you ever tried a GlobeIn subscription box?  What do you think?  I’m definitely going to be ordering again!

Brentwood Home Giveaway

Venice Lounger

I had been planning to purchase my oldest son, Jaxon, some type of chair for when he plays video games in his room, but this Venice Lounger is even better than any other idea I had come up with! It looks really nice sitting out in his room, and it’s big enough for adults to use as well!

It’s filled with the same plush gel memory foam as their mattresses and is so comfortable to sit on!  It comes in three colors: Marine, Orchid, and Graphite. The cover is removable for easy washing too!

Lily Pad Pillow

brentwoodhome essentials Review – Clothing and Accessories

I received these items complimentary for review.  This post may contain affiliate links.  See our Disclosure Statement for more information.

You may not have ever heard of I only learned of the website recently myself. It’s a great budget-friendly website to shop for clothing, accessories, and some home items. I recently ordered some items so that I could share a more thorough review with you! Review

For just under $50.00 I was able to buy 3 tops, 1 handbag, 1 neck warmer, and 3 pieces of jewelry. Here are the details for each item I received, including sizing. These items did ship from China where the sizing can be very different than here in the U.S.  Each item does have an individual sizing chart for your reference, which was very helpful!

Clothing Items

Deer Print Christmas Hooded Tee Review

The cost is only $7.61 for this top!  The fit was good using the sizing chart given for this item. This is a lightweight top and I will most likely wear a cami or tank top under it.

Pocket Design Long Sleeve T-Shirt Review

This top has a $12.30 pricetag.  The fit would have been good but I didn’t order the right size – completely a mistake on my part.  I love the collar and sporty feel of the top!  Again, it’s a lightweight material and a cami or tank top would probably be needed.

Women’s Stylish Lace Spliced Keyhole Neck Short Sleeve Blouse Review

The top was on clearance for $10.07.  The fit is perfect!  I will definitely wear a cami under it because it’s sheer, but I absolutely love this top!  Unfortunately, at the time of this post, it’s currently sold out.

Accessory Items

Stylish Big Buttons Embellished Knitted Neck Warmer For Women Review

The neck warmer cost only $5.15.  This color is currently sold out, but at the time of this post, it is still available in a dark yellow color.  This is really soft and stylish.  I think I will get a lot of use out of it this winter!  There are lots of other scarf options available on the website as well!

Fashion Women’s Shoulder Bag With Stone Pattern and Metal Design Review

This bag is listed for sale at $10.54 and comes in 5 other colors.  I really love this!  The interior lining is a bit crinkly but it doesn’t bother me since no one sees that anyway.  And no, this won’t pass as real leather or anything like that, but it’s still really cute and plenty big enough to hold everything I need and then some!

Jewelry Items

Stylish Faux Suede Layered Wrap Choker Necklace For Women Review

$1.40 Chokers are back in style.  Seems to be well made considering the very low cost!

Stylish Pigeon Design Necklace For Women Review

$1.43  Again, super low price.  Cute necklace.  I’m unsure what the metal is.

Simple Solid Color Pineapple Necklace For Women Review

$1.46  Pineapples are another popular item right now.  Again, I’m not sure what type of metal this is but do want to mention it arrived in Forever 21 packaging, so it’s most likely an item they carry or did at some point.

Overall I was impressed with Sammydress.  The sizing of the clothing could be an issue, but if you refer to the individual size charts on each item you should be able to figure it out.  When in doubt, definitely size up.  Don’t let the letter on the tag bother you since items made in China do tend to run very small!  Some of the material is also on the thinner side so take into account you may want to wear a cami or tank top underneath.

Another thing to be aware of is that each item will tell you how long it will be until it ships.  Every item I chose has a 3-day dispatch but some can be up to 2 weeks.  My items took about a week to arrive after ordering which I find to be really good for international shipping!

If you’re on a budget, but still want to be stylish, or have quite a few people on your holiday gift list, then is worth a visit!  There are a lot of items available – almost too many!

I hope you find this review helpful.  If you have any further questions about the items I ordered, please feel free to comment or send me a message.  I’ll do my best to help!
