Normally when companies ask me if I want to do an unboxing or product review for free, I say no. I'm tough on myself and make sure I say thank, but no thanks to anything I don't believe will fit in my niche or will help you guys in some way. This is why I'm thrilled about this particular company...
DISCLAIMER: The Sparkle Hustle Grow box was given to me free of charge and I am an affiliate for the subscription. However, I’m giving my honest-to-goodness reactions here so you can have peace of mind that this is a genuine review. :)

The unboxing Haul
I personally love watching unboxing videos so I’m sharing mine too so you can see my honest-to-goodness genuine reaction to all the items. Pssstt...are you subscribed to my channel yet?
But you can keep reading if you'd rather just the text version of this unboxing...
1. Savvy Community Access Pass. $39 value
The first item I pulled out was a coupon code for a 30 day Access Pass to the Savvy Community.
This online community is for female entrepreneurs looking for video trainings, downloads, forums, and so on. It's for a $39.00 value so that alone pays for the Sparkle Hustle Grow box, which is $24.00/month.
2. mini selfie ring light. $8 value
The next item I pulled out was a great Mini Selfie Ring Light. I was STOKED to get this! It's my 2018 goal to be more present on Instagram so this is going to be extremely helpful when I need to take a selfie but am lacking the natural light conditions I need.
3. Woman with a vision notepad. $5 value
I got so excited when I saw this notepad because I'm all about the practical things! I constantly use notepads and I especially love it when it's a wider, more substantial size like this one. Mama's got things to write, mmmkay?
4. Maengle the Hair-Tie Bangle. $28 value
I'd heard of these hair-tie bangles before (it's a bangle that also carries your hair-tie) but I'd never owned one. I have especially long hair and a toddler that like to constantly run around the house, so you better believe I wear my hair up 80% of the time. This is another great practical product from this box!
5. 25 free square prints from Parabo Press. $8 value
I was JUST thinking about printing some of my favorite prints of James to put in my office so this couldn't come at a better time! I've never used this particular company before but the description said they come in an extra thick, matter paper so I'm excited about ordering.
However, I did notice that shipping isn't free so there is a small cost associated with this item.
6. Invia Drink Mix. $4
I don't typically use drink mixes like this so I'm not sure I'll personally end up getting any value from this iem. But they're supposed to help with concentration and energy so maybe I'll use these instead of having a third cup of coffee. Ha!
7. Art Print by HeartSigned. $9 value
I absolutely loved this art print!
Here's to raising strong women
May we know them
May we be them
May we raise them
I don't have a daughter (yet!) but that doesn't mean I'm not going to put this up in my house ASAP. It's also made with heavy duty cardboards, which is an A+ from me.
8. Girl, wash your face by rachel hollis. $22.99 value
I'm not sure if you've heard but I'm a major fan of reading and usually film in front of my little library shelf at home. And I'm just now wrapping up a book so I'm going to dive right into this one.
It's written by a blogger and she goes over each of the falsehoods that she used to believe (and we probably all believe at one point!). It's the perfect inspirational book for female entrepreneurs like you and me.
Award for Most Practical
I thought it would be fun to pass out a few awards and this first one goes to the Woman with a Vision notebook for being the Most Practical. I've already opened it and am using it!
Award for Most Likely to Use with My Business
Since this is a box geared towards female entrepreneurs, it was incredibly important to me that there were actually useful items included. It certainly delivered!
The Mini Selfie Light was a no-brainer because it seriously can't get more "blogger" than this! But I also feel like it tied with Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis since it's inspirational and written by another blogger.
Award for Allison's Personal Favorite
My favorite product for use in my personal life is definitely the 25 free prints from Parabo Press. If you saw this video, then you know that we literally just bought a new house and I'm buying decor left and right.
My overall thoughts
I gotta be honest here, I wasn't expecting to be this impressed by the Sparkle Hustle Grow box! I was kind of expecting some semi-useful products but I'll likely use most, if not all, of them.
The drink mix is literally the only thing I probably won't use but that's mainly because I try to only drink water. I have this addiction to soda that's hard to beat and I have to live a water-only life to stay away from it.
But overall, all the other products more than made up for it and I'm certainly in love with the branding and quality that Sparkle Hustle Grow has created! Are you going to join? Don't forget to use the coupon LINDSTROM to get $5 OFF your first box!
