the bachelorette-inspired boxes: introducing the final rose box

Because we’re obsessed with all the rose ceremony drama, we’re giving away FIVE Bachelorette themed gift boxes over on our Instagram page during Becca Kufrin’s Season 14.  And you’re totally gonna want to win these, trust us.

We’ll be releasing and giving away a different box each week and for the final week of The Bachelorette, this week’s box is appropriately named The Final Rose Box.  Let’s take a peek at what’s inside below.

The Final Rose Box

The final two go head-to-head to try to win Becca’s heart in the season finale that we already know ends in (SPOILER) – a proposal!  This gift box is filled with everything a newly engaged gal could need including a shirt with Becca’s famous catch phrase, “Let’s do the damn thing”, a ceramic tray handmade by female artisans in Morocco to hold all her keepsakes and engagement ring, “Mr. Incredible” leave-in conditioner by DryBar to keep that mane so silky her new fiancé can’t keep his hands from running through it, a raspberry and rose chocolate bar, “Royal Roses” gummy candies, a rosewater scented moisturizing shea butter hand soap by Formulary 55, “Sparkling Rose'” black tea with rose petals and shiny sugar crystals (fit for a queen, natch), a hydrating rose hibiscus coconut water face mist from Herbivore Botanicals, and a hand-poured soy candle scented like champagne and featuring the phrase “luckiest girl in the world” because naturally that’s what Becca is going to feel like when Garrett or Blake gets down on one knee to propose and accept her final rose.

Because we’re obsessed with all the rose ceremony drama, we curated FIVE Bachelorette themed gift boxes.

We’ll be releasing a different box each week and this week’s box is appropriately named The Home Town Box.  Let’s take a peek at what’s inside below.

The Home Town Box

Ah, the coveted home town dates where the final four suitors get to whisk Becca off to meet their parents and play house for a bit.  While Becca hails from Minnesota (dontcha know), there’s always a home town full of farms, family, and fauna.  This gift box comes with “Southern Belle” volumizing mousse from DryBar, smoky BBQ sauce for those home cooked meals at home that you’ll make as a couple, a pumpkin pie scented candle that will rival the smell of mom’s homemade dessert, pink “mama and baby piglets” gummy candies, a “Happy game day, ya’ll” tank because Texans love their football, and a Mexican serape blanket handmaid by artisans in Mexico for all those tailgate, sunset, and soul searching moments.

The Pack Your Bags Box

Where there’s international travel, there’s bound to be some tan lines, some tattling, and some tears.  The cast usually travels later into the season to some tropical locale that makes for a nice backdrop for a break up.  This season, it’s the Bahamas! With this gift box in hand, you’ll be sippin’ pretty on the beach before you’re cast off to the next season of Bachelor in Paradise to try your luck again (oh, you were so close to the “Fantasy Suite”, bro).  Featuring Bachelorette Season 10’s Andi Dorfman‘s new book Single State of Mind, you can read this on the long flight back home after being the first one cast off after arriving to the tropics the day before (we’ll miss you, Leo), a margarita carry-on cocktail kit with everything you need to mix up a mean marg at 30,000 feet (sans alcohol, but those in flight mini bottles are so cute), a hand-poured soy candle scented like “Island Nectar” and handmade luggage tag both by The Little Market, pineapple gummy candies, a dark chocolate bar with macadamia and coconut from Compartes, and a “Mai Tai Spritzer” sea salt spray from DryBar to make sure your hair looks as bouncy and beachy as Becca’s.

5 ways to warm up your suite for fall

Fall is one of our favorite times of the year.  The leaves turn colors, the weather gets crisp, and all the yummy pumpkin and butternut squash recipes come out at our favorite restaurants.  We love to bring this feeling indoors and make our apartment feel just as cozy. Here are five easy and inexpensive ways to make your home feel warm and comfortable for Fall.

start at the front door Fall entry

Create an instant feeling of warmth before your guests even step inside.  Hang a seasonal wreath on your door (we love this over-the-door wreath hook so you don’t damage the apartment door with nails). Then change out your door mat to a warm color or fun pattern that immediately says “Autumn”.  If space permits, you can also add a large uncarved pumpkin or a cluster of smaller ones by the side of your door or a pot with Fall colored blooms.

suite scents DIY-Votive-Candles-with-Leaves

There’s nothing better than walking into a room that smells of the holidays or mom and dad’s house at Thanksgiving.  We love to choose one seasonal scent and then use that throughout our entire apartment so your nose gets the same fragrance from room to room. Add a few candles, scented bead jars or potpourri to each room, a spray and reed diffuser in the bathroom, and a few scented sachets in closets.  In the bathroom, you can also try this fun product, Poopourri, that even offers holiday scents.  Try not to go too candle crazy – the goal is to have a subtle seasonal scent that makes your apartment feel warm and inviting.

For Fall, try scents like pumpkinspiced cake, or cranberry sauce.  Then switch to pinepeppermintcinnamon, or gingerbread in December.

add a warm throw blanket zambia-throw-chocolate-043284624a

Cuddle under a furry blanket in the living room or bedroom when the temp dips lower.  It will instantly warm up any space.  A favorite of ours is from Z Gallerie because it is just so soft and has a warm lining.  Drape the throw over your couch or chair or fold and place at the end of your bed. And remember that faux is always the way to go when purchasing “fur” items.

change up your pillows fall-leaf-pillow-21

Give your daily throw pillows a break and bring out some harvest inspired or Autumn colored ones to spice up your apartment’s decor.   Add one or two to the couch, a side chair, and a few on the bed to make any space more festive. We found these cute DIY pillows on fab blog Positively Splendid.

treat yourself to fresh flowers pumpkin-vase-fall-flowers-sunflower-bouquet-decoration

Fragrant blossoms instantly make any room feel brighter and Autumn offers some beautiful blooms.  In season for Fall are the rich hues of chrysanthemums, calla lilies, roses, dahlias, and gerbera daisies.  Add a small bouquet to your kitchen table, your nightstand, bathroom counter, or coffee table for a fresh and fragrant statement.

How do you cozy up your apartment for Fall?  Let us know in the comments below.
