Sweet Reads’ Limited Edition Tea Lover’s Box πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

It’s been an incredibly busy and stressful couple of weeks and I’ve got some tea to spill, just not quite yet. I know, I know, it’s annoying for me too. I hate to leave you hanging! But stick with me, it’s coming. In the meantime, pull up a chair and join me for a cuppa something sweet — Sweet Reads‘ limited edition Tea Lover’s Box, served up this spring.

The Gift Refinery Spring 2022 πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

Hello hello! I have a few really wonderful boxes to share with you this week, all of them Canadian πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ which is interesting because I feel like it wasn’t so long ago that pickings were slim.

Artisanal candles monthly: Vellabox April 2022

And then they post the listing. 😩😩 You can’t buy a house bigger than this box for under a mill! 😩😩 But I digress. Let’s get to this box.Β Vellabox is a candle subscription that delivers artisanal, small-batch candles made with 100% soy or coconut wax, top-quality fragrance oils and lead-free cotton wicks. You get one each month (chosen with your favourite fragrances in mind) plus a surprise gift from a natural lifestyle brand.Β I’ve been reviewing Vellabox for a few months now but this is the first one my mom’s seen IRL and she thought it was delightful! Here’s a closer look.
