Pamper Yourself, Gift Friends, Serve OthersFriday, August 14, 2015
Have you ever felt like your ability to care for yourself has been pushed aside as you care for the rest of your family? Your kids demand time and attention which takes away from the time you have for your own needs. We've all heard that we need "put the mask" on ourselves before we help others (been on an airplane recently?), but let's be honest, survival isn't the same as taking time to relax and feel special, real pampering.
What if you could treat yourself to a special little something once a month that would also help to inspire you to do a little something each day to grow in your faith? Would you give it a try?
I was given the opportunity to try out Ily Box and it was so awesome to get a specially packed gift in the mail that was for me to enjoy.
- The box had inspirational cards with quotes and scriptures on it. Surprisingly, they fit perfectly on some plaques I have on my office wall... so they have been inspiring me every time I sit at my computer.
- There was also a chocolate bar and a bath moisturizing bomb... it was like they wanted me to indulge in a soak while refilling my coco bank.
- There was a very cool waterproof notebook, which is nice because I am not overly concerned with leaving it on the table next to where the kids are learning how to use "big" kid cups... oh yeah, spills galore...
- My favorite was a stretch nylon bracelet. My wrists are pretty small, and those rubber bracelets that are popular have never fit, but this one stretches, which means it's smaller to begin with... equals a bright bracelet I can wear often.
Since this is a monthly subscription, you could get a box each month with new surprises to inspire, challenge and pamper yourself.
I'm thinking that while I wouldn't necessarily want or need a box each month, I could gift a different friend each month, or some of the months. It is hard to keep close friends in the midst of crazy kid and family schedules. I would be greatly blessed if one of my friends gifted such a box to me.
Oh I haven't even mentioned the best part... Ily box donates a box to a woman in need. You can even pick the location: women in jail, in a hospital, or in a shelter.
