Well, as I said in my last post about the Buddy Box, this is my last one that I was going to be getting. I’m sure that lots of people like these boxes but they are just not for me. No way. I’ve really tried to get on with them, but they are just not for me. I think I know why. I have five passions in my life: my kids, cats, stationery, Kawaii stuff and yummy snacks – in that order. I genuinely think that is why I get so much more fun out of the stationery, cat and snack themed boxes.
So, here we go. The top of the box was a picture of a bear on a bike juggling lemons I think.
Upon delving into the box, I uncovered the usual two postcards. One of which you can send to people and one of which has the box contents on the back.
The first thing of substance was a big bag of “comfort me” tea bags from the English Tea Shop. They contain chamomile, spearmint,amalki, basil, ginger, vanilla and marjoram (all organic). I’m a bit reluctant to taste this as I’m not a lover of herb teas, I much prefer fruit teas.
Then came a tin of Badger’s organic sleep balm. I was actually super happy with this as I’ve used it before and it really helps. It contains both lavender and bergamot. You just pop some on to your temples at bed time and it really works.
Next comes a sample size sachet of a skin care scrub made from coffee grounds and lemongrass. Allegedly after a sweaty session in the gym this will really pick you up. As I’m in a wheelchair I don’t tend to go to the gym too much. Maybe I’ll be able to use it after trying to put my slippers on in the morning! 😉
Then there’s a block of post it notes which all say on them “three things that are ok for today.” I think the premise here is that you write down here things that you would not normally do in a day. If it is on that post it note, it’s ok for that day. I’m thinking it’s more Netflix/pizza/chocolate type of deal than kill your boss though you know?
Then comes the book. It is an international best seller written by a French guy called Fabrice Midal. The book is called C’est La Vie: The French Art Of Letting Go.
Lastly there is the usual Blurt “zine” which has an adorable Pug picture on. I love pugs so much!
Well so long Buddy Box.
Be kind to each other.x
