I can hardly believe that Summer is FINALLY here! Although we are still dealing with some restrictions, I think a lot of us are starting to see the light …. of that big bright SUN shining down on us which feels so goooood!
The Summer 2021 Jilly Box was curated with local road trips, adventures and staycations in mind. I hope you find all the necessary essentials for those warm summer lazy days in your own backyard, local beaches or your favourite camp spots! So wake up, rinse off that overnight watermelon mask, slap on some beautiful body oil, add a light layer of mascara to your natural beachy look before you pack your bags to your favourite local overnight getaway! Let’s dive into the products of the Summer 2021 Jilly Box and tell you why they are my favourite essentials for ALL of your summer adventures!
Don’t pack your bags and take off just yet! Before I get into the Summer 2021 Jilly Box products, I have a few updates to share with you!
We are proud to share that partial proceeds of the Summer 2021 Jilly Box were donated to the Kelowna Women’s Shelter – The Central Okanagan Emergency Shelter Society. The Jilly Box was able to donate some custom Jilly Boxes, a grocery gift card and a portion of our Summer 2021Jilly Box proceeds to the COESS! The funding provided will go towards providing front-line support to the women and children in our community that have experienced domestic abuse and violence. We couldn’t have done it without the support of our amazing Jilly Box purchasers!
Okay, I can’t take it anymore!! I’m ready to share the contents of the Summer 2021 Jilly Box with all of you, what makes it special and why I am so proud to share these products and brands with you!
This is one of my all-time favourite body oils and I KNEW I had to include this product in the Summer 2021 Jilly Box. This luxury oil is light, silky and the absorption is AMAZING! Elucx handcrafts this product from precious organic and essential oils. I recommend lightly shaking the bottle before opening to disperse the oils. To use as a body or massage oil, take a small amount in the palm of your hand and massage on the skin, ideally right after a bath or shower. To use as bath oil, pour a small amount in the bath water. Enjoy!
This mascara is absolutely DREAMY! Not to mention, it is a plant-based formula with a silicone wand to comb every lash! Eyes That TOK Mascara gives your lashes volume and length while conditioning and strengthening your natural lashes to promote healthy lash growth. Using ingredients like horsetail plant to strengthen your lashes, pea protein to prevent breakage, and bayberry wax for an all-day water-resistant hold, this everyday mascara will have your lashes looking long and full. And what’s even better?! Eyes That TOK Mascara is packaged consciously using recyclable plastic and an aluminum shell, and sent with love in eco-friendly and compostable shipping materials.
Perfect to take on your travels, or keep you organized at home, this gorgeous makeup case from Samara is made with a 100% vegan leather exterior and a nylon interior. Samara is an all-female team, on a mission to source the best materials so that they can create timeless pieces, intentionally designed for you. They are a 100% cruelty-free fashion house and I am so proud to include such an inspiring company in the Summer 2021 Jilly Box!
Who doesn’t love a sweet treat on a warm summer day?! As soon as I tasted these delicious Swedish candies and saw the adorable giftable packaging, I knew they would be a perfect fit for the Summer 2021 Jilly Box! Offering up Sour Watermelon and Sour Peach Lips, this candy is free of High-Fructose Corn Syrup, contains no GMOs and has Zero Trans Fats. These gourmet treats are imported from Sweden and are custom designed and produced using Scandinavian recipes. The beautiful packaging is proudly created by local and Canadian companies. You can shop Sugarjoy proudly, knowing that you’re supporting a philanthropic company. Part of their mission as a company is to donate a portion of their sales to worthy causes, both within their community and beyond.
As many of you know, I am a huge fan of Monika Hibbs and was SO excited to include her in the Summer 2021 Jilly Box! Monika and her husband Troy are such an inspiration. They have documented their stunning custom home builds over the years and with that, Monika’s innate talent for design and home styling has captured the hearts of her following! I am obsessed with this perfect canvas getaway bag that we featured in the Summer Box! This cute tote bag will help you stock all those road trip provisions. This Road Trip Canvas Tote offers both practicality and style on those long summer drives.
This creamy, soft pink concoction is luxuriously handcrafted with skin-rejuvenating squalane oil and pure watermelon extract, which is rich in skin-brightening Vitamins A and C and amino acids. I use this decadent overnight mask to gently remove dead skin cells, improving my skin’s texture, and enhancing a youthful complexion. Neroli (my all-time FAVOURITE scent … hellooooo Hawaii!!) improves the skin’s elasticity and stimulates cell renewal. Aloe vera, chamomile and witch hazel all soothe, calm and nourish the skin, leaving it feeling supple and hydrated. It’s the perfect remedy after a long day spent in the summer sunshine!
I met Anthony Salituro a few years ago in Vancouver and immediately fell in love with everything about him. From his beaming personality to his impeccable sense of style. Anthony is the owner of Jardines Domaine which is located in the heart of Kamloops, BC. I am so honored not only to call Anthony a friend but to have had the pleasure of working alongside him to create the stunning Jilly Road Trip Dress that was included as your ‘This or That’ selection in the Summer 2021 Jilly Box!
This 100% cotton, lightweight french terry baby doll dress with flutter sleeves is perfect for an afternoon road trip! Available in Wandering White or Vineyard Green, we trust you made the right choice!
Last, but certainly not least, the Summer 2021 Jilly Box Add Ons! This season, we were so excited to offer you not one, not two, but THREE sunkissed add ons!
The first add on is from Johnny Fly Co. I have been a huge fan of this brand for some time now and was so excited to partner with them on their Figure Jilly Edition Sunglasses as an add on for the Summer 2021 Jilly Box. This frame is comprised of organic acetate front, natural wood arms, spring hinges, and polarized lenses that make them Johnny Fly. This exclusive version features a dreamy blush front accented by soft grey wood and brown polarized nylon lens. I was over the moon to see my name engraved in the wood arms on these stylish sunglasses!
You may have already read my Summer Add Ons reveal blog, but just in case you missed it, I wanted to share one of my favourite Etsy collaborations with you. When we launched the Jilly Box I knew I needed to team up with Brand & Iron AGAIN. We were so sad to learn of the passing of, Jordan, the founder of Brand & Iron, after a long struggle with an autoimmune disease. His wife, Jill and the rest of their team have been carrying out the legacy he started and it meant the world to us to include their candle as an add on in the Summer 2021 Jilly Box.
It goes without saying, this candle from Brand & Iron is not only near and dear to our hearts but it is also aesthetically pleasing and smells like a dream. Picture this: a refreshing floral scent with a woodsy base highlighted by tropical coconut mid notes with a fresh sea salt finish. This candle is sure to help you welcome summer with open arms!
Girls Rufflebum Rashguard – $75 CAD, Boys Boardies – $46 CAD
You all know how much I love sustainable fashion! So, needless to say, I was so excited to collaborate with Imagine Perry on these gorgeous add ons for the Summer 2021 Jilly Box. These stylish and comfortable suits from Imagine Perry are made from material that is non-toxic, durable, naturally anti-bacterial and odour resistant. What’s even better?! When you purchase an Imagine Perry swimsuit, approximately 5-10 post-consumer plastic bottles were diverted from the waste stream. Sustainable AND fashionable! Not to mention, matching suits are available for your little ones as well! If you didn’t manage to score these suits along with your Summer 2021 Jilly Box, we do still have some stock available!
