Sweet Reads Box December 2021 ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

Big news this weekend for our neighbours to the south as Sweet Reads Box announced it will soon start shipping to the U.S. If you’re not familiar with Sweet Reads, it’s a monthly Canadian subscription service that delivers a new novel, something to eat and drink while you read and a few bookish items cleverly tied to the story (think mugs, candles, bookmarks, cozy socks and the like). Subscriptions of varying durations are available or you can purchase by the box. They also release a number of themed limited edition boxes throughout the year like the new Valentine’s and Galentine’s boxes (the Snack Lovers and latest Cook’s Box look fantastic too ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ ). So many options! But first a look at December’s box. (Thanks to Sweet Reads for sending me this one to share with you.)

Sweet Reads Box November 2021 ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

Do you set reading goals for the year? I rarely do but this year I have two: first, to read a little in the mornings so I can start the day with some “me time” rather than saving it ’til after the kids have gone to bed when I can barely keep my eyes open.

Second, I want to read most if not all of Sweet Reads‘ monthly pick in time for my post so I can share some thoughts and hopefully hear some of yours. (Sadly that’s not the case this time around. Prepping for Christmas left me with little time and energy to read more than a few magazines.)

SPArty Girl Winter 2021: Teen Box

Self care is important at any age. I’m seeing that especially with my 14-year-old daughter as we try to help her find healthy ways to deal with the stress of navigating high school and hormones (during a pandemic, no less). We’ve been watching the new season of Queer Eye together and I can totally imagine Jonathan saying “never underestimate a good mask moment, honey.” Today I’ve got a new-to-us subscription that’s like a tool box for self care curated especially for tween and teen girls with a separate box for each age group. Canadian subscription box SPArty Girl sent us their Winter box for teens and I’d love to share it with you today. Each one includes $75 worth of treasures to inspire self-love and make girls feel their own kind of sparkle.
