Subscription Boxes and Self-Care

Stepmoms, how often do you spoil or indulge yourself? If your answer is not very often, then it’s time you changed that! I have my own guilty pleasure and that happens to be subscription boxes! I get Birchboxes, Sparkle Hustle Grow boxes, and FabFitFun seasonal boxes.

I love trying new things, especially things that I might never have picked out on my own.  Oddly enough, I find that all sorts of things that I use or enjoy on a regular basis originated from a subscription box.

Since I don’t take the time to go shopping very often, I look at my subscription box habit as a way to find new books or stuff without actually leaving the house. Someone else picks it out for me and it’s delivered to my door. Oh, and I get to be surprised each time I open one of the boxes! What could be better than that?!

After I open it, I spend the month or the season, in the case of FabFitFun, enjoying whatever I got. I like to think of it as self-care time, whether it’s reading a book or putting on a facial mask. Here’s a video of my Fall 2017 FabFitfun box:
