Today, is part 2 of my Luxebox, a quarterly beauty box. I received two boxes in one for Fall 2016. This part is my actual Luxebox. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to pick a theme, but the other free Luxebox balanced out with this fact. Anyway’s enjoy!
Well, that’s it until the winter box. Thanks for stopping by!
Come ride the ferry cross the Acheron, the boundary between earth and Hades; come all souls, Charon assures you may enter; your relatives paid your way, placing in your mouth a coin; once entered Hades in the gorge, you can never leave.
Come ride the ferry where the five rivers meet – Styx, Phlegethon, Acheron, Lethe, Cocytus – converging in the marsh called Styx; the river, the marsh, the goddess, all gods swear upon it when they make their oaths, to keep their promises; come ride the ferry dear ones.
Come, where they say, the goddess Styx has healing powers, bathe in her river Styx, become invulnerable; see how Achilles mother dipped him in the Styx, so no enemy could end his life, there was just the exception of his tiny heal; come lost souls take the ferry to Hades, eternity of joy or pain awaits.
*To give credit: Angie Trafforddoing TLT this week used a bit of Greek Mythology and the character of Hades in her TLT sentences. Check-out her blog in the link above. Thank you to Angie for the idea of using Greek Mythology and the afterlife; your idea allowed me to explore the concept in a different direction.
I became interested in this box subscription after I saw what my cousin received from her FabFitFun Box in winter. Even though the box is once every season (four times a year) I felt hesitant to try this box due to price. It is $50.00 plus if you’re Canadian it is an extra $10.00 for shipping. However, they had $20.00 off your first box so I ordered it to see what it is like. You can order the box or check out the concept and magazine at FabFitFun. I haven’t decide whether or not I’m going to continue with this subscription. I’m thinking probably not because $60.00 is a sizeable amount of money for items you’re not sure if you’ll like/use or not.
FabFitFun is not only a beauty box. It is a lifestyle box. So, it contains an array of items. Here’s what items were in my introductory box:
Her clawed hands ran over her face and body as she touched the textures of fur, sinew, and teeth. Sensitive hearing caught the echoes of humans hiking near by and she salivated, while razor sharp fangs and her muscled wolf body prepared to gorge on throats.
