How much do we love a limited edition? What’s inside the second Book Lovers Box from Sweet Reads Box

Sweet Reads Box sent me their Book Lovers Box in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. Well I finally got around to booking my laser eye surgery for January 1. Can’t wait to have 2020 vision. 😂 Okay I don’t need laser eye surgery but I see it’s been a minute since I promised today’s post. Sweet Reads Box issues special one-off boxes from time to time (I’ve just ordered one of their first Kids Christmas Boxes for my guys) and IMHO their second limited edition Book Lovers Box is one of their best. Like the monthly subscription box, it’s “me time delivered” with a new novel, tea or coffee, a sweet treat and some goodies tied in to the story; in this case the book is about an aspiring novelist and the goodies all celebrate books. Here’s a closer look. 📚

A breakfast box made in Montreal: October’s OatBox

I received October’s OatBox in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes. OatBox is a monthly breakfast subscription box from Montreal that comes with two large bags of handcrafted granolas that are 100% natural and preservative-free, plus two recipes. Gluten-free boxes are available and subscriptions can be delayed or cancelled free of charge.

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

I received October’s Sweet Reads Box for review purposes. All opinions are my own.  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. 

Smoothies by subscription: Goodfood’s PB&J delivers

I received smoothies for review purposes. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.  Goodfood is a weekly subscription that delivers all of the fresh ingredients you need in pre-measured amounts to make delicious meals at home. Earlier this year the company introduced a breakfast option: a variety of smoothies packed with quality farm-frozen ingredients and ready in seconds. This month I tried a new flavour, PB&J.

A new Canadian subscription box: The Hygge Starter Kit from Hygge in a Box

I received the Hygge Starter Kit for review purposes. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.  Hygge in a Box is a new quarterly subscription box for those looking to bring more happiness and comfort into their lives. 🙋‍♀️ Today I’ve got the Hygge Starter Kit, a smaller version of the quarterly box that’s designed to provide an intro to the hygge-inspired life with some ideas and products for meaningful moments and relaxation. Inside are items that touch on some of the key elements of hygge: Warmth, Light, Nourishment, Comfort, Connection, Joy, Mindfulness and Nature. All are made with ethically sourced materials by Canadian artisans and businesses.
