A Sweet Reads Box for the longest month: March 2020

I received the March Sweet Reads Box in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes. Anyone else feel like March was 8,000 days long? 🙋‍♀️ Oy vey! I’m doing my best to put one foot in front of the other but a lot of days I feel like I’m stuck in molasses. Hence my spotty posts. Please bear with me, dear readers. Lots of good stuff coming. (Psst: I’m supporting some of my favourite small businesses with some purchases to share with you including a Sweet Reads Box giveaway so watch for that very soon.) Today I’ve got the March box and after that, the latest limited edition. If it’s new to you or you’ve heard of it but you’re not sure what it’s all about, Sweet Reads Box is a monthly subscription box service that’s “me time delivered” with a new novel, something to eat and drink, and a few other products tied to the story or theme.

It’s the little things: Tallying up the March Glossybox #beautybox

I received the March Glossybox in exchange for an honest review. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes. Hello hello! I hope you’re all doing okay and have lots of support in these uncertain times. I’m having a hard time settling down to write but I have some fun things to share that might be a welcome distraction for us both so I’m just going to try my best, starting with the latest Glossybox. It’s a subscription box that delivers five deluxe or full-size beauty products every month. For $21 USD you get at least $60 in value.

My latest Lip Monthly is the bomb!

I received January’s Lip Monthly in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. This review also appears on A Year of Boxes. Lip Monthly is a subscription service from the US that 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+. February’s Lip Monthly hasn’t yet arrived but I do have January’s here for you.

January’s Sweet Reads Box royally delivers 👑

I received January’s Sweet Reads Box in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.  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). It also meant I was home when January’s Sweet Reads Box arrived so I’ve got that here for you today. It’s a Canadian subscription service that’s “me time delivered” with a new novel, a hot beverage and a few treasures related to the story, and it’s always SO GOOD!

Inside December’s Glossybox #beautybox

I received December’s Glossybox in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.  Sometimes as a kid when I visited my dad he’d give me money to go to the corner store across the street and pick out a treat. I often went with the sure bets — Twizzlers, Bottlecaps, maybe some sour keys or Swedish fish, and other times I’d buy one of those surprise bags that came with mixed candy and a little toy or two. 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.
