Smartass & Sass ‘I’m so Fancy’ Review by Mel – December 2019

A huge Thank you to Abby from Smartass & Sass for sending me this box to review! This has to be the box I get excited about the most when it arrives. I stay away from the spoilers as much as I can as I like to be all giddy when I open it.

Smartass & Sass is the box baby of Kim & Abby, who have been besties for 25 years. These fun and sassy boxes contain 5-7 unusual treats every month. They also do a Shirt only subscription, and a Big Box version which is basically the 2 boxes combined. All subscriptions ship between 16th and 18th of each month.

This months edit is…. ‘I’m so Fancy’

If there is one thing I wasn’t over the festive period it is Fancy. I wore my pyjamas for at least 5 days in a row before leaving the house (different pairs of course), and I ate food, drank Baileys and watched Netflix. It was pure bliss and I loved every minute of it. However, when I saw the contents of this box I was genuinely surprised. You will need to read on and find out!

Time to talk about all of these goodies!…

Trinket Tray

This has been made especially for S&S. It would make a perfect gift but I don’t want to share so I am keeping it. I can use it for my watch, my hair bands and jewellery when I take them off ready for the evening when I finally sit down to relax. Loving the quirky slogan as usual the standard I have come to expect from this box.

Advice from a Unicorn Daily Deskpad Calendar

My face in the unboxing video when I saw this. I was far too excitable. I will definitely be putting this on my desk at work. I will look forward to my daily advice slips, and will pass them around the Office to share the love!

Keep up the Amazingness Card

I love cards, I have mentioned my love for stationery before as I also review another box that sends greetings cards each month. This I will definitely use when I send someone a random box of happiness as I do.

Born to be Fabulous Pen

Another pen for my collection. Purple is my fave colour too! I am hopeful for more of these, I get through a lot of pens and I want more offensive ones please S&S!

I’m so Fancy solid Perfume

Solid perfumes are brilliant. I already have a couple in little tins from another brand. They are easy to pop in your handbag, no need to worry about spillages or smashed glass. They also tend to be stronger and longer lasting on the skin. This brand are Vegan and Cruelty Free, which is a massive bonus for me as I am always conscious of this. So far so good, I would be happy to see other fragrances in future boxes.

Maskeraide Crystal Mini Masks

I used one of the full size masks in a box from here in the Summer. I loved it, and the cute packaging. These are tiny little gemstone crystal mini masks, how adorable?!

Taking notes and Kickin’ Ass Notepad

This is my second favourite item this month. I get through notepads like they are going out of fashion. I have to make lists because my life is just hectic. The design of this is just me to a T. I love that I can flip the cover over, and it also has a date bit at the top to remind me which day my notes are from. 100% love this!

Classy with a Savage Side Mug

I have saved the best until last on purpose. This has to be the star of the show for me in this month’s edit. This could have been designed and made for me. I drink Coffee every single day, I am barely human without it. I use thermos flasks and mugs a lot and this is just perfect. It is heavy, and so well made. I am loving the extra large size for my morning Caffeine fix and the handle. This is exactly the kind of thing I would buy in the shops. It feels like a Christmas Present. In fact, my Manager at work knows me so well she also bought me one that I can use in the Car!

My Verdict?

This edit is without a doubt my favourite box to date. I can only really say there is one other box this year that I have liked almost as much as this. I know each month is down to individual taste, but this box feels curated to me and things that friends and family would buy for me. It arrived just after Christmas but it has cheered me up so much and feels like a late gift especially for me. I applaud Smartass & Sass for getting it so bang on this month.

The January Theme is: ‘Screw Perfection’. Next month is all about saying ”F**k perfection”. We think it’s a truly overrated concept and we are OVER IT for 2020. January’s goodies are all about celebrating where you are right now. Click below to order…
