Smartass & Sass ‘Work Hard Play Hard’ Review by Mel – May 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…. ‘Work Hard Play Hard

I have worked throughout this entire lockdown, this week is the first time I have had any time off work. I am exhausted, you end up working more because Home becomes your work and you don’t clock out when you leave the building. I am however still hopeful that my Summer Holiday is going ahead, so playing hard is exactly what I will be doing!

Time to talk about all of these goodies!…

Life’s a Beach Colouring Book

I haven’t coloured in years, but that is set to change. With a book full of funny and sassy quotes, it would be rude not to have a go! I often don’t find the time with my hectic life, but I am going to make an effort to do these.

Colouring Pencil Set & Tin

My little boy absolutely loves to colour and draw, he saw these and said ‘Mummy has her own pencils’, I have promised I will spend some time with him creating some Art.

Eye Mask by Hang Accessories

I do have a couple of eye masks, and I use them. This is really pretty and classy looking, not that I am classy! I do love a nap though, so I will absolutely add this to my collection.

Smartypits Lavender Rose Deodorant

I haven’t tried this yet, only as I only just opened my current one. I do use a similar style deodorant, but not this brand as it is not available in the UK. I love Lavender so that is definitely a bonus, and the mini size is very handy to carry in your handbag or beach bag.

YAY Wood Art

At first I was unsure what this is, but then I saw the hook on the back. It is very bright and quirky, I have put this on my welsh dresser on display. I love my little collection of unusual items around the house.

Stainless Steel Straw Set

I already use reusable straws. I have a set with silicon bendy bits on so we know whose is whose. I now have my own set all to myself. The rose gold colour is stunning, and the handy bag so they don’t get lost around the house.

Waterproof Phone Pouch

This is actually very handy. We were at the beach a couple of weeks ago and you do panic and worry when you are near water with your phone. My other half will also get use out of this when he goes fishing.

Salty Sticker

I am starting to get a collection of these now, not complaining! Always somewhere to stick them.

Work Hard Play Hard Tote Bag

Without a doubt my favourite item this month. I have one of these bags already and I have had so much use from it. The quality is exceptional and you can fit loads in it. It is also perfect length on the shoulder strap to carry around. I took it to Greece with us last year and used it every day down the Beach. Now I have another and trust me this is a good thing as we are a family of 4 so carry a lot with us!

My Verdict?

My faves this month are the tote bag and the straw set. I love the quality of both of these, and they are items I will use time and time again for years to come I am sure.

The June Theme is: ‘IDGAF’. June’s Subscription will celebrate our favourite acronyms and abbreviations! Get ready to LOL at these sassy surprises (we promise we won’t go overboard, OK?).
