Fall 2021 - The Jilly Box Subscription Unboxing

I'm a big fan of Jillian Harris, so when she announced last year that she was starting a subscription box, I was so excited! The box started with the Winter 2019 box and sadly, I was not one of the lucky originals who won a subscription spot, so I sign up every season and hope to get picked for a lottery spot! 

Fall 2021 - The Jilly Box Subscription Unboxing
I purchased this box - this post contains affiliate links

The Jilly Box is a quarterly seasonal subscription box - the products within the box include some of Jillian’s (and Team Jilly’s!) favourite items (and brands) from home decor, fashion, bath and beauty, health and wellness, accessories perfect for each season. Some of the items included will be custom designed exclusively for the Jilly Box. The Jilly Box really focuses on including products from small, local businesses while being ethically sourced and inclusive. They also focus on reducing plastic waste and packaging - the big boxes can be turned inside out and reused! Also, they try to include Canadian, woman owned brands, and this box also includes 3 LGBTQ+, BIPOC and Minority owned brands! 

The Jilly Box is $199 CAN quarterly + taxes and includes free shipping to Canada and the U.S. And, while this is on the pricier end for a subscription box, it will contain at least $400 worth of products each season! The box is shipped out prior to the start of each season - so the Fall box shipped in mid-August, the Winter box will ship in mid-November, the Spring box will ship in mid-February, and the Summer box will ship mid-May! 

The box always includes a little booklet that includes information about each product, recipes, interviews with makers and more! Here is a closer look at all the products in the Fall 2021 Jilly Box:

Fall 2021 - The Jilly Box Subscription Unboxing

Tav Ceramics Pink Speckled Travel Cup ~ $54.00 CAN. This blush, hand painted, travel mug is glazed in a food safe white ceramic and finished with speckles of 22k gold. Perfect for those busy mornings when you're rushing out the door! Not to mention, it comes with dishwasher safe silicone lid to prevent those spills when you're racing from one appointment to the next. 

This is such a gorgeous travel mug - I love the white, pink and gold, it's gorgeous! Because they are all handmade, every piece is a little unique! The quality is really nice and these are handmade in Vancouver. Love this! 

Blume Pumpkin Spice Blend ~ $14.00 CAN for 10 servings (full size is $25.00 CAN for 30 servings). Say hello to Fall's best friend. Finally a pumpkin spice blend with actual pumpkin! Organic pumpkin and maple combined in a warming cup of velvety goodness. Put your feet up, get comfortable and stay awhile. Tastes like grandma's pumpkin pie and works perfectly with a shot of espresso. 

I like Blume - I have their Turmeric blend and I like mixing it with oat milk and warming it up, so I'm exciting to see how this one is! They are pretty strong tasting, but I love me a pumpkin spice latte and I can't wait to try it!

One Wednesday Universal Throw Scarf ~ $65.00 CAN. This throw is the perfect design to wear as a scarf or as a lightweight Fall blanket. Whether at the office, out on the town, or relaxing at home, this neutral leopard print pattern is perfect to spice up any outfit. This throw is ethically sourced, hand-loomed, and made from Turkish cotton. 

This beige leopard print scarf is an exclusive Jillian Harris print (they have a darker grey print on the website) and it's lovely - it feels perfectly Jillian Harris to have this subtle leopard print! This is a huge scarf or throw and it feels perfect for Fall! I love this!

Fawn Designs - The Pack Back Pack ~ $139.99 US/ $185.00 CAN. The Fawn Pack is a versatile, everyday bag featuring a classic backpack silhouette and sleek, minimal design. The interior features a variety of pockets, including a bottle pocket and a padded chamber for your laptop or iPad. The Pack makes for the perfect school, work, travel, gym - basically anything backpack! 

This is such a stunning backpack - it is vegan leather, with gold finishes and it's lovely. This colour is a special Jillian Harris colour for this box (may be available at a later date on their site), but it's available in a ton of other shades. It feels super high quality and sturdy and has a ton of pockets and is lovely. This is fabulous!

This simple, beautiful an oh-so-meaningful journal was crafted with loving intention, to keep you organized, inspire your day and help you focus on the good in your life. Elevate your mindset while crossing off your to-do's. Journal your thoughts, goals and dreams.

All shades of beautiful (pink, blush and rose, with gold accents), these pens come with black ink snd they are perfect size for your pocket or tote! 

This is such a cute set of pens and journal - this feels like a really nice addition to the box. I don't journal a ton, but I love the idea of it and I'm going to start jotting things down - I love this. The pens are so nice as well and I plan and track a ton of things, so I love these!

K'Pure Naturals Keep Going Energizing Essential Oil Spray ~ $21.00 CAN. Keep Going is a refreshing blend of lemon, spearmint and other organic essential oils. Ideal  for before, during and after workouts or when the 3 pm slump hits. Organic witch hazel and coconut oil make it the perfect hydrating facial toner that can also be used as a body spray, room spray or gym bag spray. 

This is a citrusy and minty refreshing spray and it smells very uplifting and refreshing. I'm still not exactly sure how to use this, it likely won't be as a face toner but maybe as a room or body spray. 

Elate Cosmetics "Ardent" Lip Colour Pencil ~ $22.00 CAN. Express your own unique beauty with this vegan and cruelty-free Lip Colour Pencil. The smooth application and long-wearing hold allows you to effortlessly apply onto your lips as a liner or all over colour; wherever your creativity guides you. Ardent is a plum toned medium pink. 

This is a gorgeous lip pencil - it was creamy to apply and is this lovely mauvey pink shade that feels lovely for Fall. Elate Cosmetics is a Canadian brand and the products are all vegan - I also know they focus on compostable and reusable packaging. I love that this can be a liner or a full lip colour! 

Poppies & Peonies Scroll On Blue Light Glasses ~ $45.00 CAN. These blue light glasses will keep you protected from the potentially harmful light emitted by your devices. These round, oversized frames are crafted with acetate and stunning metal accents. The polka dot travel case and pink microfiber cleaning cloth will keep your frames safe and clean. Scroll on knowing your eyes are screen-safe. 

These are a really cute set of blue light glasses - I use these to look at my phone, so I'm going to bring these ones to work for computer days. These are an exclusive Jilly Box shade as well.

Overall, I'm really happy with this Jilly Box - it feels very perfect for Fall! I love the backpack, scarf, mug, all of it! While the box is pretty indulgent at $200 a quarter, but this box came with a value of $451.00 CAN. Some of the products were specifically designed with Jillian Harris for this box with exclusive colours and I always think that it adds a nice touch! I like the mix of products and will use everything in this box!
