See my review of the July box here.

We get a little sneak peek here with the front side of the product card... Bon Voyage. I like the sounds of that!

The theme for August is "Travel in Style"! Yay! I love travel themes and travel related items!

First look!

Ashlin Embossed Leather Luggage Tag ($23)
This tag was designed in Toronto and created using milled cowhide. It's very soft and even has the leather smell. I'm thrilled with this maple leaf design. I'm in need of a replacement after having not one, but two Canada flag luggage tags stolen while in Costa Rica! The card lists this company as Ashley, but after doing a search it looks like it's actually called Ashlin, a leather wholesaler from Mississauga. For consumers, Ashlin products are available at Amazon.ca.

Textile Custom Linen Works Shoe Bag ($25)
This company is based in Southern Ontario and creates lovely fabric products like pillow and cushion covers, pouches, place mats, napkins, aprons, scarves, and much more! Shoe bags are great for travel as they keep your shoes from coming in contact with your clothing. They can also double as lingerie bags to keep your unmentionables in one place within your suitcase.

Eden Organyx French Pear Body Lotion (full size $15) and Eden Organyx French Pear Body Wash (full size, $12.99)
While these bottles are too big to be travel-friendly, I really appreciate that Canadian Originals sent us full size instead of the 2oz travel size version Eden Organyx offers. I have lots of GoToobs which I use when travelling. They're made with food-grade silicone, they're leak-proof, and they're easy to fill with your own products. I highly recommend if you're in the market for travel tubes.

Bodico Bath Sponge ($4.69 - similar product linked)
Bath sponges are great for use at home, but I wouldn't take one travelling. It's a nice item to include with the body wash though.

Foil Art Print by Canadian Originals (~$10 estimate)
This art print is lovely and the quote is fantastic. I love travel related quotes. It's timely too because we just booked flights for our next big trip in early 2018! I will be turning the page and discovering some new countries! I will share more when it gets closer.

The August Canadian Originals included six items, valued over $90 Canadian! The travel theme is fun, but the best part is that these products work for travellers and non-travellers alike. It's great to see so many wonderful Canadian companies and products represented!

The September box ships between the 5th and 7th of the month. Click here to see a sneak peek of the upcoming box.
