Because my alone time is for everyone’s safety: July’s Sweet Reads Box

I received July’s Sweet Reads Box for free in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. 

We’re only a couple of weeks into summer break and I’ve already lost my shit more times than I can count. I thought I was pacing it out okay, but then last week was hot as hell and my mom was visiting so the kids were pushing it and none of us are getting enough sleep so I ended up reaching my shit-losing quota way sooner than I thought. “I’ve got to do better at keeping it together,” I told myself. But how? Then the universe sent me a sign. Because my alone time is for everyone’s safety: July’s Sweet Reads Box

It’s a limited edition! The Book Lovers Box from Sweet Reads Box

I received the Book Lovers Box for free in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Shoana Jensen was on Cityline this week talking about subscription boxes and I was so surprised she didn’t mention Sweet Reads Box because IMHO, it’s one of the best on the market. (If it’s new to you, it’s a Canadian monthly subscription service that delivers a bestselling novel and few treats that tie in to the story, including gourmet goodies and an interesting bevvie.) Their monthly boxes sell out super quickly, and their new limited editions seem to be snapped up just as fast. Today I’ve got a look inside the first Book Lovers Box.  It’s a limited edition!

No blender, no problem: Evive Smoothie Cubes + A giveaway!

Evive Smoothie sent me the products in this post for free in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

They say the smoothie was invented when Chuck Norris interrogated a banana. But who has time to karate chop a bunch of fruits and vegetables when time is short and the need for something quick and healthy is big? Enter Evive Smoothie. The Montreal co. created frozen cubes of organic fruit, veggies and plant protein that you pop into a jar or a bottle, cover with liquid (water, almond milk, whatever you prefer) let sit for a few minutes and then shake up to make creamy, nutritious smoothies in a jiffy. No blender required! Evive Smoothie sent me their eight flavours to try. Let’s check them out. No blender, no problem: Evive Smoothie Cubes + A giveaway!

What did the right eye say to the left? “Something between us smells.” 😂 My second Mapleblume beauty box came in the mail last week and a couple of the products smell too. But really, REALLY good. 😁 If you haven’t heard of Mapleblume, it’s a quarterly (formerly bi-monthly) subscription box of luxury cosmetics and skincare with at least five full-size or deluxe sample-size products in every shipment.  What’s inside February’s Mapleblume box #luxebeauty
