I could really use a vacation! I am really excited to share my Escape Monthly box for March 2014. I saw a Groupon last month good for one Escape Monthly box for about half price, so of course I jumped. I had been wanting to try it but the price tag on this one was a little intimidating. I paid $24.99 for this box, but the regular price is $49.95 U.S. per month. I really enjoyed it though so I might just keep it going. Next month is Mexico and I could go for a beach just about any day. Every Month the company even includes a Surprise Vacation to the selected destination for one lucky subscriber. I didn't win, but you can bet your biscuits I searched that box just to make sure!
Yes, Yes I do deserve it!
This box has a lot of treats straight from Ireland. While most of the items are food items, there was also a high quality all-in-one family remedy cream, a packet of shamrock seeds, and a travel book about living abroad in Ireland.
The last item in the box is a travel guide called Living Abroad in Ireland by Christina McDonald. I'm not sure if I will ever make it to Ireland, but it will be nice to pretend.
Overall I was pleased with the box, although I do wish that most of the items weren't food items. On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd give this box a 6. It is nice to treat myself to goodies from far away, but I think if I had paid full price I might have been slightly disappointed. I do think the box was a good value in spite of that and it is nice to be treated with unexpected surprises. I also love reading travel books even if I don't plan to visit. (I'm a nerd like that, and I'm okay with it!) I will definitely still get the April Mexico box before I make any decisions about keeping this subscription.
