Subscription Box Insanity: The Rockettes Fancy Box (Dec. ’14)

Rockettes Fancy Box - First one.

 Just dance! I was very excited to receive the fourth The Rockettes Fancy Box! This one felt light, like two of the last three so I felt a bit of trepidation about possibly feeling disappointed. (See my review of the September box here, the October box here, and the November box here.)

I was going to use the third box to make the decision as to whether to keep the subscription or not, but of course there was a Black Friday sale at Fancy, so I opted get this fourth box at a discount.

Speaking of Black Friday sales, I’m wondering what the after Christmas sales will look like for boxes. Typically the better sales are after Turkey Day but here’s hoping. For those who are interested in seeing if there will be deals, let me direct you to My Subscription Addiction’s site to stay tuned.

 Just dance! I was very excited to receive the third The Rockettes Fancy Box! It was much heavier than past boxes, so I was very eager to check it out. (See my review of the September box here and the October box here.)

 Just dance! When I came downstairs this morning I was very excited to find the second The Rockettes Fancy Box! I had a few errands to run before I could open it, so I stashed it inside while I did my running around. (See my review of the first box here.)

Before I left, I did take in the condition of the packing box and was a bit dismayed to see that it looked like it had been wrung through the ringer (and it felt pretty light). So I’m hoping that nothing was lost or damaged in the shipping process. Guess I’ll find out soon enough.

Subscription Box Insanity: The Rockettes Fancy Box (Sep. ’14)

Rockettes Fancy Box - First one.

So a former co-worker of mine introduced me to the joyful insanity of subscription boxes, for which I am still deciding whether to hate her for. Being a sucker for a series of any type (just wait until I start reviewing books!), I was instantly hooked! My first experience was with Bezel Box; truth-be-told I wasn’t too big a fan of what I received. But from that purchase I learned the importance of either being all in or choosing boxes that are returnable/refundable.

My next foray into subscription-land was the wonder that is Stitch Fix! I should be getting my next Fix in November, so stay tuned until then for a review.

I also purchased a few boxes from Social Bliss, Golden Tote, and Treatsie but decided I wanted to try a few other box types. Not having unlimited resources, I opted to cancel/hold on those (for now).

My current line-up of subscription box services now consists of the aforementioned Stitch Fix, Bark Box for my pampered Doberman Wednesday, the French Box, and Quarterly boxes from curators Nina Garcia, Eva Scrivo, My Subscription Addiction, and Arianna Huffington. Also, the box I’m reviewing today: The Rockettes Fancy Box!

Anyway, on to the show! This is the first box from the Rockettes line and I’m a dance fanatic. So even though this box is non-refundable/returnable, I decided to give it a try. Life is about risk, after all!
