It's been a while, huh? FYP is finally over and i feel as if i can breathe again. So many things have changed since i was last on here. Funny, hmm? how much things can change in a matter of months.
It feels strange. Strange to wake up to see sunlight peeking in, no alarm clocks blaring in the backgrounds, no scramble to get dressed for school. The past few months have been nothing but a roller coaster but i pulled through! I've made it this far, and i can't be any more thankful. Thankful for God, for my perseverance, friends who pulled me along, friends who slapped me with reality checks and the mama bear, of course. I'll definitely share more about #TheDapperJaneProject in the next post but for now, know that i'm back! i'm back and i'm not going anywhere.
This year, i'm guilty of buying belated gifts. Belated birthdays, belated christmas's...you name it, i've done it. But honestly, how does anyone have to time anymore to spend hours in a crowded mall searching for the perfect gift for your loved ones? Between FYP and spending time with my family, i have no time WHATSOEVER to buy gifts this year. um.... i guess i'll be giving out I.O.U's ya?
Recieved this box of wholesome goodies recently from InTheBox
, sitting on my doorstep with a little box-ribbon and my name on it. I ripped it open and was honestly impressed by the thought that went behind curating the package itself. (Everything inside made me feel so comfy and tingly) Packaged inside: a gorgeous scent labelled "Ocean Breeze", a crafty paper lantern from MakeRoom.co, a yummy vegan cookie, a lip balm, box of tea, shower gels, Moringa powder..... and OH YES! a complimentary yoga class. Can't leave that out. PERFECT CHRISTMAS GIFT, i thought. (Ma, if you're reading this: that's for you)
To be painfully honest?—I'm really not the type who'd make the effort to buy gifts of different types of makeup or jewelry because aha, there's a question of taste. My selection may not necessarily be most ideal for someone else. I'm tired of the usual gifts like clothes and earrings, I spend most of the days in the year (and money) buying alllllll of that and i'm sure everyone else has else well, am i right? I try my best to be eco-friendly most of the time but some products on it's own is just too costly for me to splurge on. And yes i know, we've all heard of monthly boxes like this yada yada but i think what makes this Box so special to me is that everything inside is just so.....wholesome. Definitely a nice change to all the nonsense we've been buying & putting into our bodies for the past 300 days.
Definitely gonna purchase next month's box! can't wait to see what's in store for this birthday girl
