Smartass & Sass ‘Domestic as Hell’ Review by Mel – April 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…. ‘Domestic as Hell’

I am not loving the fact I have to be Domestic during this lockdown. My lovely cleaner cannot come and visit, and I have to task this challenge as well as looking after 2 Children and working full time. I am not surprised lots of us are needing Wine at the moment!

If you missed my live unboxing, you can watch it back on our Facebook Group, or by clicking play below on our YouTube Channel…

Time to talk about all of these goodies!…

Melamine Mug

Finally, something my kids can’t break! They can try I am sure. I like this as I can also use it while I am outside in the garden and not worry about dropping it. The quote on it pretty much sums up my life at the moment. No point in dressing it up, working from Home with 2 kids is far from easy.

Coaster Set

These are excellent quality. Marble and wood with rubber feet to stop them slipping. I really do like these, they are already in use on my fireplace. I still have the set in my Bedroom that I received a while back in one of my S&S boxes.

Complete Before Netflix Notepad

I got far too excited about this. I loved the last notepad I was using, and this is equally as brilliant. I make lists throughout the day for work, I usually have a lot to do and every day is merging into the next. This will even help me to remember what date it is. We all love a Netflix binge at the moment, I definitely do!

Bic Clic Pen

Another great addition to my collection of quirky pens… keep them coming!

Subversive Sponges

These are genius. Nobody likes washing dishes, but these will make the process a lot more interesting. They are scrub sponges, they are even embroidered! You prop the sponge up in the little gold frame. This is already sitting on my Kitchen windowsill next to the sink. Would definitely buy more too.

Snack Bag

This is so true. What else can we do at the moment in a lockdown?! Snacking and Netflix are 2 of my activities after work. I have hidden this in my top drawer away from the Kids. It is wipe clean too.

Dirty/Clean Magnet

This is the only item in the box I cannot use sadly so I will gift it on. It won’t stick to any of my appliances and most of my kitchen it built in.

Bath Salts from TubTonics

I have been doing my once a week walking activity, yes I know it is meant to be once a day but lets just say I am not too motivated by a daily walk, haha!… when I have done a few miles in the Forest I do have aching legs. These are going to be perfect. They smell amazingly of Peppermint which I love.

My Verdict?

My faves this month are the Sponges and the Notepad. These are the 2 items I would expect anyone who knows me to buy ,me as a gift. I love anything unusual, most of the items I receive in this box feel like they were designed especially for me. I really cannot WAIT for next months box, this is my ultimate cheer up box during the lockdown.

The May Theme is: ‘Work Hard Play Hard’. Next month is all about balance. We work hard all week so we can play all weekend 🙂 Now that it’s finally summer time in the US, we can pour some drinks and enjoy the outdoors!

The May box is sadly SOLD OUT!! You need to be fast to pre-order for June!
