High five, my friends. We got through January, Valentine’s Day is around the corner and before we know it we’ll be sailing into March. Normally I go to my aunt’s place in Florida this time of year to roam around Target in my flip flops and read by the pool but that wasn’t possible so I’m here at home, writing to you from the couch with two blankets piled on top of me, a hot cup of tea by my side and a candle flickering on the widow sill (which always feels so cozy).

Naturally there was a risk you’d get something you didn’t like, but that was part of the thrill. Just like subscription boxes. Some are a bigger gamble, but Glossybox is a pretty safe bet. Every month it delivers five deluxe or full-size beauty products from around the world ranging from trendy to high-end. For $21 USD you get about $60 in value. Read More
