Smartass & Sass ‘Hot Mess Express’ Review by Mel – March 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…. ‘Hot Mess Express’

I am not a Hot Mess in the way that most of us would like to be, but possibly in the hot, sweaty I am running around after 2 kids sense? Yes I need one of these badges too!…

Time to talk about all of these goodies!…

Bic Clic Pen

Another for my collection, I think I have 6 of these now. I am one of those people who can actually run out a biro, I write that much! I always love a pen!

Adulting Sticker

This is one of my sayings. I wish that sometimes we did not have to be adults! I need to find somewhere for this to go. I do not recommend adulting at all, can I get a refund please?!

Tea Towel

I genuinely have said this before a few times. I am far too old for drama, and just do not have the time for it. I am an eye roller. If people have time for that, then do something productive with all of your spare time! The colour of this is also my favourite purple, so I am very impressed. These was well too as I have the Salty grey one from a previous box.

Wooden Spoon

This is the perfect size to stir a tin of Beans in a milk pan saucer. Let’s face it, we are all on a COVID-19 diet of tinned food, well I am. As long as they have cheese on top. No more scraping the pan with a metal spoon anymore! I love my new spoon!

Chill Bitch Candle

I have had one of these in the past from this brand. I have quite a lot of candles on the go at the moment as it seems to be a popular product to be in subscription boxes. I will definitely get around to using it though. It smells like Summer which is making me dream of non isolation times ahead!

Pinch Me Dough

This is a god send. I am stressed to the max this week. I have been covering 2 jobs and balancing staying alive with 2 Children at home. I survived, yay! I love that this is play putty for adults. Whoever thought of this is a sheer genius, thank you!

I swear I have it all together Tin

This is really big, I am going to use it as my secret sweet stash tin. My kids do not read my reviews so I am safe. You could use it for lots of things really, it is bright and quirky as you would expect from S&S.

Not today Satan Socks

I love socks, and we are still not having warm enough weather for sandals so these will definitely get worn. I feel like my kids could be Satans this week, they are driving me potty. Absolutely loving these and will be wearing them around the House since I cannot go out, hah!

My Verdict?

My faves this month are the pinch me putty which is just an amazing idea, and the tea towel as it just nails my personality and is something I would grab and buy if I saw it. My partner really likes his new Bean stirrer spoon too! An excellent box yet again, this is always my ultimate cheer up box to receive. It never fails to impress me and make me smile.
