This is my first month ever receiving the new Chicky Quicky Box and I really wanna say that this is my new favorite subscription box. I really loved it … lots and lots of stuff packed into this box! It’s also different than most of the other boxes I receive so it was very new and exciting for me.
I haven’t really branched out much from beauty subscription boxes so I’ve been getting kinda bored with the other boxes I’m subscribed to, most of which I have been receiving for over a year now. I’ve also tried out a few other boxes this year (both beauty and non-beauty) and I wasn’t really that impressed with any of them so I ended up unsubscribing after a couple of months. I’m really happy that, so far, Chicky Quicky looks like a keeper.
Chicky Quicky is one of the newest subscription boxes on the block. I’m pretty sure it just debuted in December or November, but I’m not 100% sure about the month. I saw a couple of blog reviews on the box and as soon as I saw it I had to have it. It’s a beauty and fashion subscription box that sends out a mix of different products each month. Chicky Quicky was created by Patty Barba, the founder of Patty’s Closet fashion boutiques. I don’t have a Patty’s Closet in my area (New York), but I am definitely visiting the store next time I’m in Las Vegas, which is the store’s flagship location.
Now on to all the goodies inside the February 2015 Chicky Quicky box … !
Bubbly Confections Bath Bombs ($4.50 for pack of three; bubblyconfections.etsy.com): These adorable bath bombs are handcrafted in California and made with essential oils and sea salts. They come in a bunch of super cute colors and designs (cupcakes included!), plus each different color has its own pretty aroma. I love these!
‘Ili Kope Facial & Body Scrub ($15 for 4 oz.; ilikope.com): This stuff is awesome! It’s a full body coffee scrub made in Hawaii with four simple 100% organic ingredients: Kona coffee, coconut oil OR pure avocado oil, brown sugar and Hawaiian sea salt. This scrub is a natural way to treat acne, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, cellulite, dry skin and a number of other skin concerns. I love, love, love this scrub. Such an awesome subscription box find!
Sparkle by Patty’s Closet Earrings ($12? estimated; ilovepattyscloset.com): These look like earrings to me … but I’m honestly not sure how to wear them. I tried to wear them every which way and I just couldn’t figure it out. The earring on the left (in the above photo) has this little hook on the bottom but I have no idea where that hook is supposed to go. Maybe this is for a cartilage piercing? I think that’s what it might be for.
Actually now that I think about it, that’s really the only place this earring would work. I used to have my cartilage pierced but it closed up loooonggg ago. Either way, these earrings are cute, I wish I could wear them! If anyone knows if they’re supposed to be worn a different way, please let me know!
Yelete Crew Socks ($5? estimated; no website given): Chicky Quicky did send out a card with all the brands for the month on it, but it seems like these socks were left off. I can’t figure out where they’re from … but since it looks like Chicky Quicky sends out a lot of stuff from Patty’s Closet, and Patty’s Closet is a store in Las Vegas that sells tons of cute clothes and accessories, I’m thinking you might be able to find them there. Unfortunately Patty’s Closet does not have an online store, but you can definitely find similar socks somewhere on the interwebz. I can always use a new pair of socks so I thought these super cute donut socks were a great addition to this month’s box.
Bakery Charms Valentine’s Box of Chocolates Ring ($22; bakerycharms.com): This ring is so freaking cute and the idea behind the whole entire company is even cuter. Bakery Charms is a Hawaiian company that makes all different kinds of jewelry and accessories adorned with tiny little desserts and other foods. Each item is individually handmade (!) out of polymer clay and other materials.
You need to browse through the website because nothing I write here will do it any justice — you have to see these accessories for yourself! There is a range of adorable-looking jewelry with tiny little pastries, confections and other foods that include macarons, cupcakes, candy, ice cream and more. So, so, so cute.
I Adorn You by Mary Beth Heishman Jewelry ($40? estimated; iadornu.vegas): I don’t think I would have necessarily bought this necklace for myself, but now that I have it (and now that I’ve read MB Heishman’s business story), I am definitely going to wear it. It is a great statement piece, for sure. Each one of Mary Beth Heishman’s jewelry pieces are handmade and unique and there are hundreds of them to choose from in her online Etsy shop.
Sparkle by Patty’s Closet Necklace & Earrings ($30? estimated; pattysclosetstore.com): Another item I might not have necessarily picked out for myself but I am definitely loving this one. I love statement jewelry and I don’t own nearly enough pieces, so this one is a great addition to my collection. It also came with cute gold earrings. This one also had the “Patty’s Closet” tag attached to it, but it seems like you can’t buy anything from Patty’s Closet online. I guess I’m going to have to visit the boutique next time I’m in Vegas.
Sparkle by Patty’s Closet Necklace & Earrings ($30? estimated; pattysclosetstore.com): The last item was also a Patty’s Closet necklace and earrings set. This one is also cute but I’m not really big on red so I’m going to pass this one along to a friend!
Subscription Box Breakdown:
My very first Chicky Quicky box was absolutely awesome and it is definitely my new favorite subscription box. I paid $35 for this box and it was PACKED with stuff, so I would say I totally got my money’s worth and then some. I estimated the value of this box to be around $158.50 — I could be totally off but if I’m in the right ballpark then holy crap this is a great value!
There was a bunch of cute costume jewelry, plus some great handmade pieces and the bath products were awesome and handmade with natural and organic ingredients (!). I also love how Chicky Quicky chose these independent shops and featured their items. There were so many GREAT finds in this box … items I would never even know about if it wasn’t for the Chicky Quicky subscription.
I can keep going on and on and on about how much I enjoyed this box … I can’t wait to see what next month has in store!
Pricing & Availability:
Chicky Quicky is a monthly beauty and fashion subscription service with a few different price and box options. I paid $35 for the “Chicky Quicky” monthly box, but there is also a “Lil’ Miss Chicky” box for little ones that costs $25/month (recommended for ages 5-10). The third option is to combine both boxes (“Chicky Quicky” plus “Lil’ Miss Chicky”) for $50/month, or you can get a completely different box altogether, the limited edition “Exclusive Chicky” box, which comes with more products than the regular box and costs $50/month.
