Prairie Charms 'Luau Party' Box














Back in June/July I saw on twitter that alot of the fellow tweeters that I follow were hashtagging #PrairiePizzazz and it was then I had discovered the lovely company Prairie Charms!

Prairie Charms is a handmade accessories boutique that specialises in all things girly, whimsical, quirky and floral and the best thing? 10% of all profit proceeds are donated to the Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital Charity and the, ‘Kiss it Better Campaign,’ which provides funding to pioneering, world-class treatment for complex medical conditions including pediatric cancers. I love companies who give something back.

I knew I wanted to buy a few things but then I saw that they have created a subscription box called Prairie Pizzazz where each box would have a different theme, There were limited spaces left so I got in touch to reserve a spot for myself since I did not want to miss out! The first ever box had a festival theme so I was so excited to find out the theme since it was revealed later on that LUAU PARTY was going to be the theme! Think golden sands, blue water and all tropical related goodness. 

It sounded perfect and the lovely team at Prairie Pizzazz wanted our input towards the box so we had to create a moodboard on Pinterest and I had so much fun collecting images to create my very own board. It was later on announced that me and a few other lucky girlies had won the competition for the best moodboards! I shall keep you posted on when the prize arrives because I had honestly no idea I would be among the few who would win more goodies!
All of the items came packaged in a brown pizza-style box and opening the box really was mesmerising! From the colourful sequins to the care that had gone into packing the box, this was truly a delight to be a part of! After unraveling the pink tissue paper, There were 2 cards. One explained all of the included 'toppings' with their prices and the second card showed the curators who made this box possible as well as all of the blog links of everyone who is a part of the blogger team which is such a lovely idea, I have yet to visit all of the lovely blogs!

Eda Bespoke Floral Lei Flower Crown
This has to be the star of the box! I received one that had hues of pink and yellow and it looks so stunning on. I think I'll have to keep this for next summer now since it's time to rock autumnal clothing and accessories. This flower crown makes me feel festival ready and the colours can instantly brighten up any outfit!

Hana Bow Tie Scrunchie
The 90s are back! I now own a scrunchie after so long! The one I was sent is a lovely pastel blue colour and I cannot wait to wear this. The bow makes this such a cute hair accessory and looks great worn on the wrist too.

Catarina No Snag Knot Ties
I have ALWAYS wanted to try hair ties like these, I totally understand the hype behind them now. I was sent a lilac one with gold palm trees on and a glittery pink one both have already been worn and I love that after tying my hair, it doesn't leave any kinks you normally get with using normal ties or any of that horrible metal bits that can catch your hair, trust me! That's painful if you have long hair like me!

Acadia Tropical Punch Drink Set
I thought that this was such a cute addition to the box, perfectly matches with the theme! The set included cute bamboo print paper straws, a sachet of tropical kool aid which I have always wanted to try and a lovely flamingo drink stirrer. I have already used this and it was a drink that screamed 'sass' and 'style'

Paloma Vintage Bead Drop Anklet
One of my favourite items from the box, I received a gold one with a cute and dainty turquoise drop. I absolutely love the gold/turquoise combination and I have been wearing this as a bracelet rather than an anklet. I love dainty jewellery and this looks great as part of my arm candy.

Dakota Custom Nail Glitter
Nail glitter is something I enjoy wearing and I cannot wait to experiment with the gold glitter that I was sent. You can use this over nail polish and play around with colour combinations. I think this will look great paired with blue nail polish non?

Una Coconut S'more Snack Pack
I'm a sucker for all american confectionery so it was lovely to see these food items! I have to admit it was hard not to devour this as soon as I saw it because I had to photograph it first! Blogger problems, I tell ya! The whole idea of this kit was to create s'mores but I enjoyed eating everything separately haha! I may have to order teddy grahams in bulk soon haha!

Faryn Hair Clips
This shell clip screams warm summer days and wavy hair. this looks super cute worn with a messy side braid. The shell is mounted sturdily onto the clip and another accessory I am saving for next summer.

Sweet As Honey Studio Make A Mess Confetti
I love lil DIY kits and this is so Pinterest worthy! I have seen confetti filled balloons on Instagram and on Pinterest and I have always want to own one! This would make a good blog prop too. The confetti colours are very tropical inspired and fits in well with the theme.


One of the best things about this subscription box is the incredible value for money. I paid £22.50 (inc delivery) and received around £100 worth of contents. With some subscriptions, you may not want to pay that much as you often receive things you won’t use but Prairie Charms takes a note of your likes and dislikes, you are unlikely to receive anything you don’t like from them. Not many companies are so collaborative like Prairie Charms because not only did they ask bloggers for input but they also kept me aware of the whole process which was fantastic!
What do you think of the contents and is Prairie Pizzazz something you'd be interested in trying?
