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

At $21 USD it’s generally a great value for what you get and a fun way to try brands you may not have seen otherwise. (Glossybox draws from 400+ brands around the world.)

I received Mapleblume’s August box for review purposes. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes

“Babies don’t need a vacation, but I still see them at the beach … I’ll go over to a little baby and say ‘What are you doing here? You haven’t worked a day in your life!'” — Steven Wright •  😂😂 How are our beach days almost behind us already? Summer has flown by (not that I mind; fall’s really my jam) and here we are almost at the end of August. I have a couple of August subscription boxes to review that still haven’t arrived so you’ll probably be seeing those early next month, but I DO have August’s Mapleblume box and it’s a really good one. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s a quarterly subscription box of luxury cosmetics and skincare with at least five full-size or deluxe sample-size products in every shipment.  What’s inside August’s Mapleblume box #luxebeauty
