Hello lovelies, it’s time for another parcel reveal!
Our theme for July was “Relax & Recharge” and they contained products all connected with giving you an excuse to simply pause for a moment, be mindful and, just like your phone, recharge your batteries.
Splendor Sandalwood Candle Jar –
Welcome to your July parcel and this month’s theme “Relax & Recharge”. Your first item is this lovely jar candle – when we think of relaxing, our first thought goes to lighting a candle, regardless of the time of year. The fragrance of Splendor Sandalwood is a calm refreshing scent and the perfect choice for this parcel.
Colouring Sheet & Twig Pencils –
If you’re a regular subscriber to The Smile Parcel, you’ll know that we’ve included a colouring sheet in previous parcels. Colouring for adults has become a popular hobby and is a great way of taking relaxing time out for yourself. A single colouring sheet can be great if you’re one of those who struggles to make time for me-time…there’s always something else that needs doing or someone else who needs our attention. You may initially think that colouring isn’t for you, but once you get started, it almost “forces” you to be mindful for a few moments, to take a breather and think of something else, even if it’s only for a short time. We included some super rustic twig colouring pencils to help you get started!
Bath Fizzers –
Now, you could probably smell the beautiful fragrance of these mini bath fizzers even before you spotted them inside your parcel. These have been made by Trishell at Bathing Beauties, who you can find over in her Etsy shop. The perfect excuse to run a bath, light your candle, allow yourself to unwind for a while and let the worries of the day drift away…
Bookmark & Snack Bar –
There’s no drama with this Llama and he’s keeping an eye on you …and your page! Reading can be the ultimate escapism, I find it difficult to switch my mind off enough to focus on a book, so I’m very jealous of those of you who can. If you are able to get lost in a book, this Llama has got your back! And, of course, it’s then time for the “Recharge” part of your parcel – a snack bar to help keep you refuelled, after all, all this relaxing can be exhausting!
‘Blank Canvas’ Postcard –
We love these postcards, they have a great message, a reminder that each day is a brand new shiny blank canvas, to start over. If yesterday didn’t go so well, try again today. Postcard from Katie Abey Design.
Smile Cards –
As always, there should be a couple of these little cards in your parcel, I’ve written one for you, and the blank one, is for you to write a short inspirational or positive message, and give to someone you know, or leave somewhere for a complete stranger to find – but this is of course optional, there’s absolutely no pressure to do this if you don’t want to.
