O’s Circle Of Friends: Happiness in a Box Review

Spread the love

O’s Circle Of Friends: Happiness in a Box Review

I don’t think you ever stop giving. I really don’t. I think it’s an on-going process. And it’s not just about being able to write a check. It’s being able to touch somebody’s life. Oprah Winfrey


A little under a year ago, I received an email from O Magazine inviting me to join a new subscription arrangement that was called: O’s Circle of Friends. As a long time subscriber of the magazine, I was delighted to read about Oprah’s new way of sharing goodies with her readers. It would be an opportunity to get a first hand experience with her version of the ever popular and growing monthly subscription plans that we see today.  I jumped right in and, even though it took me a while to get the hang of how it worked, I soon received my personalized Members card and a beautiful box of goodies which included the Bulgari fragrance pictured above. There were a few things that made me sign up: the surprise test gifts which show up unexpectedly, the quality of items we receive and yes, holiday and birthday cards from Oprah topped the list.

“The path to happiness is rarely a straight line, but there are so many opportunities for wisdom along the way.” Oprah Winfrey

“Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it.” Oprah Winfrey

The Subscription is a 3 tiered membership plan, and you get to choose what fits your pocket-book. Naturally, the more up the chain you go, the greater the value of items that you get. All the membership levels are annual and you can renew at any level you choose.  Another wonderful feature of this membership is that you get to test items and submit opinions and they can be added to her yearly Favorite Things List. I received the book featured above yesterday and wanted to take a moment to share with you that this is one of my favorite subscriptions that I get because of the surprise factor and the magical way items show up when I need a boost… So go ahead and join in. You will find a wonderful new surprise waiting for you by the end of the month.

I am a woman in process. I’m just trying like everybody else. I try to take every conflict, every experience, and learn from it. Life is never dull. Oprah Winfrey


As Mother’s Day is fast approaching, this is one subscription box that would put a happy smile on her face. Take a moment and check out the Membership levels, and if you like one, go ahead and join. It will add cheer to your face and make someone very happy. Happy Mother’s Day week and go for that happiness in a box moment.


Positive Motivation Tip: This Mother’s Day, honor  your Mom and yourself with a bit of happiness in a box, you’ve earned it.

    Sounds like a great subscription plan for those who follow Oprah. The items you are receiving are top notch or so it seems to me–the price of the membership isn’t too bad.

    That box is an awesome spring in your step. I was a subscriber too and I loved the A-Ha moments she shares, plus the Super Soul Sunday stuff. It is a pretty nice gift and great surprise on your doorstep…inspiration in a box … that rocks! Plus I love that card that quote is great. I wrote it down of course. 🙂

    Wow! I cancelled my subscription to the Circle a long time ago. Never thought it would be this grand! Should have stayed. LOL. Anyway, what Tier is that box that you got?
