Escape Monthly January 2015 Portland Box Review Wrap-Up
The January 2015 Escape Monthly Portland box is one of our favorite destination boxes so far. Each of the spa products were high quality, so luxurious, and simply smelled awesome. The popcorn was a fun twist on a familiar treat and we can’t wait to try the spicy berry jellies. Portland certainly has a lot to offer and we were excited to experience what Escape Monthly shared in last month’s box!
