Prairie Pizzazz Subscription Box | Luau Edition + Video

Friday, 28 August 2015

You've probably heard me talk about Prairie Charms before (You can read my posts here and here). They have just about the cutest accessories and are always sending out the friendliest tweets.

When they approached me a few months back about getting involved with a blogger programme for a new service they were launching I just couldn't say no.
Flash forward a few months (and a lot of emails) and the blogger team were told that the new service would be a subscription box, 'Prairie Pizzazz', much like Glossybox and Birchbox - but with a twist. These boxes were to include accessories, jewellery, hair pieces and collab items. How exciting!
We were asked to help by each creating a moodboard for the new theme for the box - Luau Party- and immediately my mind went racing. You can see my moodboard here.
Time went on and I was informed that my moodboard was one of three to be selected as a winner, so not only would I receive my box, I would also receive some extra goodies, too! Woohoo!

A new Prairie Pizzazz subscription box is launched every 2-3 months and costs £35.00 with a value of £75 or over, and includes at least 5 accessory or lifestyle based pieces.
I have to admit, when I first heard the price it did shock me, but once I thought about it, it is actually very reasonable. Glossybox (and the like) will cost you £10 a month plus shipping so this works out equal to that and the best part - it is personal to you. Prairie Charms will contact you to ask what colours and textures you prefer and what your signature style is in order to choose the best items for your subscripton box, ensuring that every piece is something you enjoy and make use of.
Some boxes will also include a 'Pink Ticket' which entitles you to a special treat, too! They just keep giving!

My box arrived on Thursday 27th August and I filmed an unboxing which you can see at the bottom of this post. As you can see from my images, I received some absolutely stunning pieces which just scream Luau Party! Think tropical prints and bright colours plus lots of yummy treats! Everything was individually wrapped and was presented in some gorgeous packaging - a signature stamp for Prairie Charms!

Sweet As Honey Studio 'Make a Mess' Confetti RRP £3.95
The first thing I picked out of my box was actually the collaboration piece! Created by 'Sweet as Honey Studio' this fun, colourful confetti features flamingos and pineapple pieces for the ultimate Luau Party decoration! The little bag even included a balloon so that you can create your very own confetti balloons - how adorable?!

Caterina 'No Snag' Knot Ties RRP £7.00
I tried some of these little gems by Prairie Charms before and I got addicted. They are literally the best thing since Nutella! These tropical inspired bands work to keep the hair tied back without pulling or ripping it out. However, they're so cute that I prefer to wear them on my wrists as bracelet style accessories.
I just love the pink lace one - it looks amazing and so vibrant and I think the flamingo printed one is just adorable, I love the contrast of the bright blue and the shimmer of the gold. This is one of those pieces that can take an outfit from drab to fab!

Arcadia Tropical Punch Drink Set RRP £5.00
My, oh my. Kool Aid is seriously summer in a cup and thanks to this box I can now accessorise my Kool Aid the way it deserves ;)
The bamboo design paper straws are the perfect mix of vintage and fun and really turn your punch into something special. Add in the flamingo cocktail stirrer and you can almost hear those waves crashing onto white sand. Someone pass me a coconut cup!

Hana Bow Tie Scrunchie RRP £7.50
This is the most darling little thing! The blue and golden colour scheme matches perfectly with my flamingo knot tie and I think it looks great with my brunette hair - each one is made with custom fabric and the little bow tie makes it that little bit
The wonderful thing about this is that because of the depth of the blue it'll work from summer through to autumn and can really pull together that I-cant-be-arsed-to-do-my-hair hair!

Paloma Vintage Drop Bead Anklet RRP £12.00
Made from Japanese glass, this anklet is just gorgeous. It shimmers elegantly in the sun and the gold chain gives it just a hint of luxury. I don't usually go for gold jewelry but I am happy to make an exception for this. I love the way that the bead hangs delicately off the ankle for a feminine finish.

Eda Bespoke floral Lei RRP £50.00
The stuff Tiki dreams are made of! This custom floral Lei headband is the ultimate summer accessory and every girl needs one. It's one of a kind and so, so gorgeous! It's kind of elaborate and extravagant but I like that, and it looks amazing when you wear it. Each flower is carefully and thoughtfully placed and the underneath is even covered with purple petals to keep the flowers in place and to disguise the head band! Dreamy!

Dakota Custom Nail Glitter RRP £6.50
This nail glitter is just beautiful, with coral, glistening blues and gold flecks it takes your manicure to the next level. I always despise removing glitter from the nails but this custom glitter is worth it. I can't wait to use it and I think it'll look fabulous with block white nails.

Una Coconut s'mores Snack Pack RRP £3.50
Just when I thought this box couldn't get better. S'mores?! Need I say s'more? But, these aren't just your ordinary s'more, oh no, they are a mouthful of tropicaly goodness with the twist of coconut mallows. Delicious. It breaks my heart to have to open this adorable set but my stomach wont deny it any longer!

Faryn Hair Clips RRP £5.00
And to finish, these sweet hair clips. I have to admit, aside from bobbypins I haven't really worn hair clips in a long time, but now I'm not really sure why. These seashell hair slides are so dazzling and look so pretty holding back all my annoying post pregnancy baby hairs! The blue one will work great with my new scrunchie and I've got a feeling the silver one will come in very handy at Christmas too!

I was also super excited to have my blog name and twitter handle featured on the front of the box's card insert!

Prairie Charms have really pulled it out of the bag with this subscription box. It's just so well thought out, from the flamingo washi tape on the box right down to the feathers and glitter within. It's truly personal and just so special. The next box is set to be released in September/October with an Autumnal theme - and if your a longtime reader of my blog you'll know I cant get enough of Autumn, so I am beyond excited for that one!

You can get the full lowdown on the subscription box by tweeting to Prairie Charms (@Prairie_Charms), they are seriously the sweetest and have the friendliest customer service ever.
