Last month’s Lookfantastic Beauty Box was mostly a miss but (spoiler alert!) October’s is almost spot on. I love when that happens! Happy day! If this is the first you’re hearing of it, it’s a monthly subscription box from the UK that delivers six premium beauty and skin care products and a copy of ELLE UK for the low low price of £15.00 or about $22 CAD/month and free international shipping.

October’s Sweet Reads Box is a thriller! (Literally)

I’ve been down in the dumps for a bit but I feel like I’m finally starting to shake it off, so herewith a reveal I’ve been wanting to share: the latest (and quite possibly the best yet) Sweet Reads Box. The monthly subscription box promises “me time delivered” with a new novel, a sweet treat, coffee or tea and a few other treats related to the story. October’s box marked the Canadian co’s second anniversary, so an extra surprise was included as well. They have the anniversary and we get the presents! I like where this is going.  October’s Sweet Reads Box is a thriller! (Literally)
