Time to check out the September 2016 Serendipity by LLB box!
If you haven’t heard, Serendipity by LLB (Little Lace Box) is a lifestyle subscription box that delivers hand curated, designer products directly to your door every other month. Boxes will feature five to seven sample-sized and full-sized items ranging from beauty, to home decor, sweet treats, bath & body products, and more. There typically won’t be a theme — just a collection of items chosen for their overall awesomeness.
Subscriptions are only $12.99/box (single, non-renewing), or $59.94 annually (6 boxes). These sell out fast and are only available at limited times throughout the year (so it’s best to sign up for the annual subscription when you can). While they don’t offer a coupon for Serendipity, you can still save on the original Little Lace Box with the following codes: $10 off a single box – LLB10 , $15 off 6-month subscription – LLB15, or $20 off 12 months – LLB20.
Let’s see what’s in the September 2016 Serendipity by Little Lace Box!
As with the last couple offerings, everything was shipped in a small brown box via First Class mail.
A peek inside!
An info booklet listed all of the items in the box, along with descriptions and retail prices for each one. The September Serendipity by LLB box featured items to embrace the start of baking season.
Kilner Square Clip Top Spice Jar ($5.99) – Kilner has been making jars since 1842, so they’ve pretty much perfected the art of food storage. This handy glass spice jar holds 2 ounces of your favorite dry good and features an airtight seal to keep it fresh. I kinda have a thing for cute little containers, so I’ll definitely be putting this to use.
Karista’s Kitchen Spices ($17.97) – To get us in the mood for baking, Serendipity included three different spices from Karista’s Kitchen. — Korintji Cinnamon, Matcha Sea Salt, and Smoked Sweet Paprika. A few recipes were also included which utilized the aforementioned spices… None of them can be easily veganized, but I’m sure I can find some uses for the cinnamon and paprika. Not too sure about the matcha salt though. 😉
Boot Cuffs & Socks Ivory Slouchy Ruffle Socks ($6.99) – Boot Cuffs & Socks is a company based out of Nebraska that specializes in boot cuffs, boot socks, and legwarmers. These lightweight socks are super soft and designed to sit right above ankle or calf-high boots. Subscribers could have received these in taupe, ivory, white, or mint.
Handwrytten Card ($4.99) – Also included was a code to create and send a free card from Handwrytten, a site that offers a selection of cards that look like they were handwritten. Just let them know what message you’d like to include, then select the handwriting style of your choice, and send. (I gotta say, I’m not too stoked about this concept. It feels a little… deceiving. I’m sure it could be useful to someone though.)
For the second time in a row, I’m a little underwhelmed with my Serendipity by LLB box. I guess it just felt a little lacking. Spices aren’t the most exciting item, especially for those who don’t even bake. The jar was cute though, as were the socks (though I would have preferred thicker winter ones). The total retail value for September was about $36. Not bad, but not quite as high as past boxes. Here’s hoping November’s “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” box makes up for the last 2 mediocre ones!
While they don’t offer a coupon for Serendipity, you can still save on the original Little Lace Box with the following codes: $10 off a single box – LLB10 , $15 off 6-month subscription – LLB15, or $20 off 12 months – LLB20.
