This is my new favourite subscription box! I received my very first Inspired Book Club last month and fell in love with it immediately. I absolutely love the idea of receiving a book every month, as well as some self-care goodies. To me, this is the perfect mixture of products. I loved every single item we received in the May box and couldn’t wait to get my hands on the June box. If you love to read you NEED this subscription in your life…….period.

Here’s a look at the items we received in the June Box:
Luna Tea Co Citrus Dream Tea
A mixture of rooibos & orange peel & coconut & vanilla powder & stevia leaf.
Luna Tea Company is a conscious business; our goal is to promote mindfulness through the tea experience. Tea reminds us to be mindful by allowing us to focus on the present moment. Waiting for your pot to brew, and enjoying each cup with purpose and gratitude is a way in which you can practice mindfulness every day. Quite often in our daily lives, we barely find time for ourselves and self care falls to the bottom of our priorities. If the only time you get to yourself during your busy day are the moments waiting for your tea to steep, then we have done our job.
Tea is a must…..not only when it comes to book subscription boxes, but when it comes to life in general. I love a good cup of tea. It’s the perfect way to relax and take some time for yourself. There really isn’t anything better than cozy pj’s, a quiet house, a warm cup of tea, and a good book……..really, there isn’t.
Portland Bee Balm Oregon Mint
Our all natural ingredients will make your lips sing: local Pacific NW beeswax, organic cold pressed extra virgin coconut oil, organic California extra virgin olive oil, Oregon peppermint essential oil.
Lipbalm is a subscription box staple. I’ve received a TON of lip balm over the last few years, but the funny thing is, I never get sick of seeing it in my boxes. I love a good lip balm. I keep one in my book drawer beside my bed, so it’s actually kind of perfect that we received one in this month’s box.
Bee Local Honey Sticks
Bee Local honey sticks are filled with our American Wildflower honey. Like all of our honey it’s raw, unfiltered and is one of nature’s more delicious, nutrition-packed treats. It promotes overall wellness while also helping local honeybee populations in various regions. Bright in flavor and perfect for every age, it’s a little blast of power in your pocket. Slip out Bee Local honey sticks in your bag for adventures big and small, and enjoy a healthy boost of energy wherever your explorations take you.
I love these little honey sticks. I think it is a genius idea. I like to keep them in a mason jar on my coffee bar, and I also like to keep one or two in my purse.
Slow North Rosemary & Lemon Candle
Boost your mood. Our custom blend of rosemary and lemon essential oils – made to uplift any space – is sweet and herbal; providing a naturally-refreshing aroma.
Slow North creates the finest plant-based, soy-wax candles for any space. From our 100% essential oil fragrances to our cotton and paper wicks, our products redefine all-natural luxury. Our candles are vegan and free from artificial dyes and ingredients. You will enjoy a lighter, naturally-enticing aroma when burning a candle scented only with pure essential oils.
Yes, yes, yes! I love rosemary essential oil, it has definitely become a favourite. So just imagine how excited I am to have a rosemary scented candle. The scent makes me happy, I could burn this candle all day, every day…….I might need 10 more of these.
Zen Bath Raspberry Lemonade Bath Bomb
I could smell this as soon as I opened the box, and let me tell you, it smells lovely. Bath bombs are the perfect little self-care item. They are one of those bath & body products I love to use but rarely purchase for myself.
Find The Good by Heather Lende
Quirky and profound, individual and universal, Find the Good offers up short chapters that help us unlearn the habit–and it is a habit–of seeing only the negatives. Lende reminds us that we can choose to see any event–starting a new job or being laid off from an old one, getting married or getting divorced–as an opportunity to find the good. As she says, “We are all writing our own obituary every day by how we live. The best news is that there’s still time for additions and revisions before it goes to press.”
This book is speaking to my heart……literally. I was speaking with a box owner the other day about going through tough times (as we all have) and said to her that something good always comes out of bad situations. It’s just a matter of finding that something good and acknowledging it. I feel like this book showed up at the perfect time. I can’t wait to start reading it. I think this will be one of those books that I leave beside my bed, even after I finish reading it so I can re-read a couple of chapters from time to time.
Extras – Bookmark, Quote, Note Card
The little extras are what makes a box stand out from the rest. I love that Inspired Book Club includes a bookmark and a quote each month. I also love that they included a little note card for us in the June box…….
- From me to you……..you’ve got this!
Inspired Book Club Review June 2017 – Final Thoughts
Umm…….how can you not love this subscription box! Really! How can you not!? Inspired Book Club is definitely my new favourite subscription. I just love this box…..I love everything about it. The packaging, the curation, the subtle themes, the choice of books, the little extras, the fact that they will donate your used books……need I go on? To put it in to perspective for you, let me tell you this……I spend twice as long reviewing this box than I do with almost all of my other boxes, because it is that much fun to unbox. I go through this one slowly, and take my time with each and every product. I savour the moment, and want it to last as long as possible. I am Inspired Book Club’s biggest fan…….you NEED this subscription in your life! Just trust me on that one.
PS – Did you pick up on the subtle lemon theme? #genius
