Smartass & Sass ‘Screw Perfection’ Review by Mel – January 2020

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…. ‘Screw Perfection’

I am a self professed imperfection. I literally could not give a stuff about being perfect, or care what anyone else thinks. I think you get to a certain age where you know yourself very well and you are comfortable in your own skin. So I have never strived for perfection and highly recommend not caring, it is liberating!

Time to talk about all of these goodies!…

Uh-Oh Eraser

I have quite the stationery collection these days, but I love Tiramisu items for their quality and quirkiness. I won’t be gifting this!

Bitch Please Pencils

I am tempted to gift one of these each to the ladies in the Office, I think it will make them laugh for those extra stressy moments! I have had some pink ones from this brand before, and they are excellent.

Stay Weird Body Lotion

This is the only item I possibly won’t use this month, which is very unlike me! I am not really a body lotion person. I find this is a time thing, my life is crazy and I don’t have the time to dry myself after running out of the shower usually. I hope that one day I can afford a body dryer that I can walk through! I love the slogan and the packaging though, I certainly am weird, I embrace it!

Oversized Tote Bag

The quality of this is exceptional. I use my other bag daily, and this has already been put in the boot of my car ready for my next shop. Can’t wait for the glares from the little old dears disapproving of the language, and the Mum’s asking me where I got it. I always tell them about Smartass & Sass, makes for a great passing conversation.

Screw Perfection Bottle Opener

I was taking the photos of this, and the other half says to me ‘that looks good’, he then swiped it and said can I have it? This is really heavy, and well made. Not your usual cheap and cheerful item. Love the slogan again, in theme with the box this month.

Sorry I’m Late Keyring

I must be in the minority, I do love my job. When I am late I have a mass panic that I won’t be able to get all of my work done. I do love the quirkiness, I think this is more suited to my other half who never wants to leave his bed and I have to kick him out in the morning.

Fresh out of F*cks Pen

This is me this week, absolutely zero to give! I actually prefer myself like that, straight to the point with a ‘nothing to lose’ attitude. I am more productive when I am in that frame of mind and really focused and driven. Another great pen for my collection.

Perfection is overrated magnetic Bookmark

Yes, it is that! If you strive for perfection then you are doing life all wrong. Be yourself, everyone else is already taken (Oscar Wilde), I live by that quote. This will be handy at work or if I ever get time to read a book!

Hot Mess Beanie

The clothing items in this box are always exceptional quality, this is so well made. You can see that just from the photo! Great item for my freezing cold head on the winter mornings. Someone told me it is spring already the other day, I am sure that was a joke?!

My Verdict?

This edit is really perfect for this time of year. Including the huge tote for all of your much needed retail therapy goodies to pick you up in the longest month of the year, the beanie to keep my head warm, and the key chain to remind you that it is the hardest time of year to get out of bed! I can’t pick a favourite item, but If I had to say most used, then it will be the bag. Cannot wait for some Supermarket stares!

The February Theme is: ‘All the feels’. Next month is all about the feels. We’re talking the good, the bad, and the ugly. During this month dedicated to love, February’s goodies will remind you that all your feelings are valid (including the stabby ones!). Click below to order…
