My Favorite Things to Get in the Mail
Getting real mail is always the best! Cards, letters, postcards. A handwritten note from a friend or family member always makes my day. I’ll admit though, that I’m not good at this myself! I want to make a genuine effort to be on the sending end more often. Fortunately I already have all of my stationary and cards organized on the back of the guest room door – so I have no excuse not to be better at sending some happy mail to others.
I didn’t get what all the fuss was about with meal prep kits… until we tried Blue Apron. For the first time, I actually enjoyed cooking. Turns out it’s the meal planning that I don’t like. Having two new recipes and all the ingredients delivered to our doorstep each week made cooking fun again. After about two years of getting Blue Apron every week, we decided to mix it up and try out another meal kit service, so we tried out Hello Fresh. After comparing the two, each has its pros and cons.
If you’ve never tried a subscription box, I highly recommend it as a special treat for yourself, even if it’s just once in a while! There are few things that brighten my day like receiving a box full of surprises in the mail – and the POPSUGAR Must Have Box is always my favorite to open!Each month, Lisa Sugar curates her and her team of editors favorite items, and this month’s POPSUGAR box is extra special because it’s celebrating the 5th birthday of POPSUGAR Must Have. This special birthday box was packed with super fun surprises, including a few items that are perfect for the “Back to School Year Eve” tradition that we are starting this year with our big kindergartner! How fun is the “Cheers” lacquered tray and Meri Meri gold colored candles?! I think we’ll let the kids enjoy the Goodie Girl Chocolate Cookies as an appetizer, and then put the candles in some cupcakes for dessert!
This months box also included lots of specials treats just for mom – including a beauty mask, a rose-colored journal, a pretty bracelet, and a Shotiques gift card!
If you’ve ever thought about treating yourself to a fun subscription box, this month is a great time to try out POPSUGAR Must Haves! Use discount code PARTY to get $10 off your first box (expires 8/31). There are also lots of weekly giveaways going on that all Must Have subscribers (current subscribers and those who sign up before the end of August) are eligible to win!
