Oh hi! If you don’t know me, I am Lauren or as the internets likes to call me @mycreativitysucks. I have been helping Dee out for the past couple of months with Decade Thirty. So what do I do? Well… some things and not others…. Just know that I do stuff. As my first blog post, I thought I would review a pretty spectack happiness box from CrateJoy.
What is a happiness box you say? Well, the lovely people at TheraBox has sent us this box full of goodies that are sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face. (Apologies to CrateJoy and TheraBox, this post was due to go up last week but my phone took a swim in the ocean safely tucked in a gumboot with all my content on it. Any questions?)
The goodies appear packed inside a gorgeous blue box, as you can see in the picture attached below (that’s if WordPress successfully comes to the party). So let’s dissect, shall we?
HAPPY PILLS AND VITAMIN HAPPY PILL PEN
www.therabox/thehappyshoppe $8.99 Free Shipping
Well, these are a bit adorable. The idea is that you open up each pill (which has a small piece of paper in it) and write a 5-10 minute self-care activity for you to complete. As you can see I wrote ‘take a walk on the beach’, this is where the gumboot incident occurred….
YOUR TEA ‘HAPPY TEA’
www.yourtea.com $25.00 +Shipping
This is bloody delicious! My fiance thought it was amazing! Did I mention I was getting married? You would know this if you followed my Instagram ;) Three months, y’all. This tea is filled with herbs to boost your emotional wellbeing and was created by a team of qualified Chinese medicine practitioners. Fancy!
WARRIOR SEMI-COLON NECKLACE
www.therabox.com/thehappyshoppe $15.00 Free Shipping
As a writer by trade, any incorporation of grammar in accessories is my jam. The necklace and semi-colon represent strength and hope and a reminder that your story isn’t over yet. It’s a wearable tribute to how far you have come and the infinite possibilities of your future. Such a gorgeous sentiment, I like to wear mine to work like a boss (I’m not the boss).
FLYING WISH PAPER
www.flyingwishpaper.com $5.00 + $6.00 shipping
This original watercolour paper design by Hether Dunn, is an opportunity to write your wishes on gorgeous paper, burn it and send it off to the universe. I love a worry doll and it is a nice idea that you can do the opposite in such a positive way and shout it out to the world.
LIVELY SOUL SHOP GREEN TEA INCENSE
www.etsy.com/shop/livelysoulshop $10.00 Free Shipping
CERAMIC INCENSE HOLDER
www.therabox.com/thehappyshoppe $8.99 Free Shipping
I would like to be upfront and say I am not an incense fan. I don’t even remember the last time I burned incense but in order to experience all parts of this box I went ahead and gave it a crack. No word of a lie, this smell is so beautiful. I left it burning in my room while I planned and organised. Combined with this cute little ceramic holder I will definitely be using it again when I need to relax. I plan to light it while I bathe next…
SCINIC HYALURONIC ESSENCE MASK AND ALL NATURAL STRAWBERRY LIP BALM
www.scinic.com or www.therabox.com $5.00 Free Shipping
Speaking of bathing and relaxing, as a soon to be married woman (yes, I mentioned it again) I have been told by the lady that is doing my make-up that I don’t take care of my skin. What. A. Shock. It wasn’t really, I am not what you would call a ‘hair and beauty girl’. Ponytail and no make-up is where it is at. I thought I was hydrating my skin by drinking lots of water. Nuh, apparently not. So now I have a spiffy new skincare routine and I will definitely be adding this mask to it. It’s so soft, like incredibly soft, I could curl up and sleep in it if it was bigger. It is made with bamboo extracts and hyaluronic acid which makes my skin moist and healthy. The 100% cotton sheet also protects sensitive skin from irritation. The cute little strawberry lip balm that I applied afterwards is just the cherry on top of an already pretty delicious cake.
