Happy summer! I am super excited for this summer as it will be a combination of fun followed by school (eek!) as my course work is starting in August and not September, but before that, I am going to be out enjoying summer as much as humanly possible. Of course, what is summer without some construction? However, this year instead of just complaining about all the road construction, I am having some done at home too. There will be new highly efficient windows getting installed, but before that, comes all the cleaning, which means sorting through all my samples and that has been a trial… I am definitely a “collector” of samples and have more than I can use so my recent Topboxes have just been sitting and waiting. But, I have at least gotten my act together and finally taken some photos for y’all.
It’s Topbox review time again! Here’s a double header coming your way especially since my May box is expected to show up very shortly… I’m not going to lie – I am beyond behind schedule in all things blog related and this post is going to be a very short one since I haven’t gotten around to doing anything except opening my last two boxes *insert sheepish smile here*.
Happy February! Normally I find February to be quite dreary and it’s that time of year when I am really over winter, despite being a solid member of team winter. This year is an anomaly though, because February in Edmonton has been amazing! We have had lots of warm temperatures and no snow, so it feels a lot like spring and that has really helped to get me out of my winter slump. Of course, February also means Valentine’s Day and talking about love… which brings me to this month’s Topbox and some new loves for me!
I have been really good about trying to maintain a strict budget to start off 2016, especially as I try to get into graduate school (again) for the Fall term, so I haven’t been receiving any packages in the mail, which makes me a sad panda. I get so much joy out of having packages come to my door and the rush of packages coming over the holidays really made the slow January period feel extra depressing. Luckily my topbox arrived just in time to get me out of my funk. 🙂
Happy New Year! Is there a point when it is absolutely just unacceptable to say Happy New Year, especially when you’re trying to wrap up the previous year? I will admit that the holiday season completely wiped me out – it was one of the most social months that I can remember and it just bled into exhaustion for January. I have toned things down significantly for January but that also means lacking all motivation to turn on my computer. So as I try to get my groove back, let’s chat about the November and December Topboxes.
