Stress. Mental Well-being. Pampering Yourself. Feeding Your Soul. How does the modern woman do this?
A few weeks back, I had three weeks of formal lectures left in my undergrad, followed by a massive term-end pitch to a high-profile client, an international trade law paper & then two cumulative final exams. So like any rational pre-millennium child, as in the early to mid-90s, I made an Instagram story.
And thus, Wonderlab Boutique appeared. After receiving such a personal message about puppies, kids, and remembering the importance of self-care, less than a week later I had my own personalized Wonderlab Boutique Box.
THE ESSENTIALS OF SOUL CARE. My body, mind & soul all needed some TLC, and the concept of a subscription box that was focused around ethically & Canadian-made products is something that I can easily get behind. This December Box has brought about an entirely new meaning to the term...
These are the items that have transformed my mind, body & soul into a very still high-strung Mattea- into someone who will enjoy her cup of coffee for other reasons that a caffeine fix, or who doesn’t worry about having to scrub her face aggressively to get her makeup off after presentations because I enjoy the products I use. Do not confuse this with me not being stressed, because I am, I just have taken some much-needed me-time to take mini-breaks from the stress.
AS PROMISED, ALL PRODUCTS ARE LINKED.
