Book hang-o-ver (hang-oh-ver) noun 
1. The inability to start a new book because you are still living in the old book’s world.
2. The inability to function at work/school because you were up all night binge-reading.

Sam cannot make it to the committee meeting today as she has a book hangover.

If I’m looking rough today it’s not for nothing. I was up late last night finishing the delicious new psychological thriller from July’s Sweet Reads Box and I’ve got a book hangover in the worst way.

I’m partnering with the co this month to share some of my favourite pieces and a chance to win one of them (not one of these chairs, but something also fabulous!) so stay tuned for that. And some furniture puns. (I was going to start with one about a chair, only I was afraid it wouldn’t sit well. But you’re still here! Sofa so good. 😂) Continue reading Currently coveting

I received July’s Lip Monthly in exchange for an honest review. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.

Psst! I’ve got a dirty little secret: I’ve been thinking about going on an all-almond diet. But that’s just nuts. (Ba-dum-bum-chuh.) Okay I meant a different dirty little secret, this chic little lipstick from July’s Lip Monthly. The US subscription service delivers a variety of full-size lip products + one bonus cosmetic in a reusable pouch every month. Subscriptions start at $12.95 USD/month and each pouch is valued at $50+. I wonder what other little secrets are inside? 🤔 Continue reading Lip Monthly July 2020
