It’s that time of year again…
Whether you’re going out or staying in, celebrating with friends or with a loved one(s), this is the time of year I believe us ladies should truly take a moment for ourselves and appreciate all the things that make us who we are.
Galentine’s Day isn’t just for the single ladies; it should be for EVERY LADY looking to take some time for herself.
Thanks to the Babbleboxx family, I’ve tried out some great ‘treat yo’self’ products that I highly suggest for those looking to enjoy a night in, whether it’s alone or with the girls!
BE MINE BOUQUET
Newsflash: you don’t need a man to send you a bouquet of any sort – gift it to yourself!
Instead of flowers, how about receiving some fresh fruit & gourmet chocolate all-in-one!?
The Be Mine Bouquet is an assortment of grapes, strawberries, heart-shaped pineapples, and semi-sweet chocolate covered strawberries; along with some Belgium covered chocolate pops, too!
I’ve always wanted to receive an Edible Arrangements bouquet but never had the opportunity until now, so this was such a treat to enjoy, literally! It happened to be ordered and hand-delivered, within a set time frame, straight to my door the same day, which is such a perk especially given my busy schedule. Knowing exactly when it was going to arrive felt reassuring I wouldn’t have it waiting around, without a refrigerator.
All arrangements are made locally from the store they are ordered from, and each piece of fruit was undeniably fresh! I found myself eating half of it within a day, getting a great assortment to include with my breakfast as well as for a snacking option. Finishing this arrangement was definitely not a chore!
Who would be the perfect candidate to receive an Edible Arrangements bouquet? Definitely the person who can’t keep flowers alive (lol), but also someone who is a healthy snacker would probably love to receive something such as this bouquet of fresh fruit.
I personally loved receiving my arrangement because it was something I’ve always wanted to try out, which is probably how many other people feel as well. There’s a curiosity factor that makes it a great alternative to flowers.
CHESAPEAKE BAY CANDLE
MIND & BODY – LOVE + PASSION CANDLE
Okay, this is my second Chesapeake Bay Candle and I couldn’t be more satisfied with HOW GREAT each of them have been to successfully fill my apartment with such powerful, pleasant aromas! Not to mention each of their jars have been super stylish in design, and a great contribution to any space in the home.
The citrus-fruity scent of grapefruit mango makes this Mind & Body – Love + Passion Candle undeniably dreamy to light up. This passion scent is skillfully enriched with natural essential oils, and its soy blend wax is the secret to its clean & powerful burn.
If you’re looking to unwind & find your center, maybe looking to encourage some relaxing vibes in your work space, then this is the candle for you. I currently have it lit while writing this post and I have to say I’m feeling very zen & collected. It’s a new approach to burning oils that encourage relaxation while keeping you alert, unlike other scents like Lavender that work to make you sleepy.
KETTLECORN & DRIZZLECORN
Who doesn’t love popcorn!? Talk about the ideal snack for movie night or just to enjoy for yourself (as I’m currently indulging myself…)
Popcorn, Indiana might be my new favorite brand because of how health-conscious it is! We’re talking no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives, non-GMO project verified, and certified gluten free! The guilt factor is 0% for finishing any size bag in one sitting, I can tell you personally.
I have to say the Black & White Drizzlecorn was my favorite of the two; what’s better than combining both sweet & salty into one tasty snack! Of course, you can’t go wrong with original Kettlecorn‘s salty satisfaction either. Both these flavors are great snack suggestions for the person who’s feeling a little salty while trying to stay healthy & could really use something sweet as a healthy treat.
MODERN BEAUTY COLLECTION
There’s NOTHING more empowering than new intimate apparel, and there’s no reason you have to purchase it with a man in mind.
Personally, I love buying matching sets for myself because it makes me feel feminine & mysterious; as only I know what I’m wearing underneath on a daily basis.
The Maidenform brand is designed to complement a woman’s personal sense of style, along with provide her with a versatile assortment of undergarments that enhance her shape, while empowering her style & celebrating her confidence.
I love how comfortable this Modern Beauty Beauty Lace Unlined Demi Bra & Allover Lace Cheeky Boyshort combo (in Coral Punch) feels on my body, hugging my curves while highlighting my natural figure. Although the bra has a thin underwire, it fits more as a bralette and doesn’t feel invasive when worn. The lace material is breathable and flexible to form right to my body shape, allowing for a flattering, while comfortable fit.
THE TRAVELER BEER COMPANY
LUCKY TRAVELER BLACKBERRY SHANDY
I remember trying a shandy sample from The Traveler Beer Company last year at a Beer Fest and falling in love with its rich & delectable flavor. So needless to say I was eager to try out its latest Limited Release and see how powerful its fruit would show up in its taste.
Lucky Traveler Blackberry Shandy is an American craft wheat ale made with real blackberry – which I could definitely taste! Although it was a little sweet for my preference, I did enjoy it enough to suggest it as a great alternative for someone who isn’t a fan of lemon or grapefruit blends like most shandys are made of.
In fact, you can use the Blackberry Shandy in six cocktail recipes if drinking it straight isn’t for you. I’m definitely going to experiment with some of these ideas over the summer when my shandy consumption is in full force!
Did you know that The Traveler Beer Company actually started out with the name House of Shandy? It wasn’t until 2013 that the brand renamed itself to allow more freedom for exploration. I can’t wait to see what flavors this brand has in store for us next!
