Agavesalt Baja Shawl ($60)
Subscribers received this vibrant shawl in a one of many available colors and I was excited to see this pretty aqua/teal variation in my box. Designed & handmade by LA-based Latina entrepreneur Laura Olvera, this piece can be used as a cozy wrap, scarf, throw, or even as an eye-catching table runner. It was made using a traditional Jerga fabric sourced from Mexico, with patterns that blend modern design with Mexican influence. A great inclusion for a fall box!
This feminine fragrance from Michael Kors is described as a vacation in a bottle. It features a blend of “luxurious blossoms mingled with delectably spiced notes charts a course to far-off destinations, instantly transporting you with each ingredient”. It has a top fragrance note of almond milk, a middle note of dianthus, and a base of sandalwood. Its rollerball application makes it ideal for taking with you on the go.
Coquette’s Armoire Handmade Woven Earrings ($12)
Handcrafted by female artisans in the remote villages in the Santa Barbara mountains of Honduras, this pair of earrings is sure to make a bold fashion statement. Each piece is constructed from Junco, a natural fiber that allows the artisans to weave elaborate designs into jewelry, accessories, home decor, and more. The posts are made of 100% stainless steel and are hypoallergenic.
Don Francisco’s has been producing quality coffee for 4 generations — since 1870! This medium roast ground coffee is made from 100% Arabica beans and features a sweet floral aroma with “winey notes”. It was blended, roasted, and packaged right here in the USA.
Don Francisco’s Coffee Reusable Cup ($6)
To go along with the coffee above, we were also sent a Don Francisco’s reusable travel cup. It’s BPA-free and can hold up to 16 ounces of your favorite hot or cold beverage. It’s also microwave & dishwasher safe and can last for at least 3 years with regular use.
Papillon Marketplace Handmade Bracelet in Support of LIDÈ Haiti ($12)
According to the info card included with this bracelet, LIDÈ means both “leader” and “idea” in Haitian Kreyol. This unique bracelet was handmade by a team of 40 Haitian artisans who are still in the process of rebuilding their lives after the Haitian earthquake of 2010. The LIDÈ program allows these women to work towards creating arts & literary classes, computer training, and scholarships to over 600 Haitian girls in 13 village locations.
This ultra-light, cushiony water-gel helps the skin around your eyes replenish its own moisture for a full 96 hours of intense, crease-plumping hydration. It helps diminish the look of puffiness & dark circles, minimizes moisture loss, and tightens the skin. The formula is safe for all skin types and is free of parabens, phthalates, and fragrance.
Another product from Clinique, this refreshing gel-cream is designed to provide an instant moisture boost that can last up to 72 hours (even after washing your face!). It contains hyaluronic acid, which helps to seal in moisture and keep skin looking fresh & hydrated. Like the eye cream above, this is also safe for all skin types and is free of parabens & fragrance.
The Fall 2019 Spiritú box included a nice mix of both handmade artisan goods as well as products from well-established brands. As promised, the total retail value of this quarter’s box was just over $150! My personal favorites were the Agavesalt shawl, Don Francisco’s coffee, Clinique eye cream, and LIDÈ bracelet. 🙂 — Remember, for a limited time, you can save 25% on your first box with coupon code ROSEBUDS25!
