We were so excited to bring you a seasonal assortment of unique and custom-designed home, beauty, and wellness items, as well as other self-care treats, in our first Relax & Radiate Crate, delivered in September.
At the same time, our idea of creating a meaningful community of fabulous women through our Relax & Radiate Club on Facebook has been a massive success. Not only have we offered a special giveaway of Alice Hoffman's book Magic Lessons for crate subscribers, but we've also launched a Self-Care Contest through which crate subscribers can enter for the chance to win up to $500.
Before we get to the items inside the box, here are just a few comments we've received from those who've received the fall crate:
"I received my box today and, regardless of what is in it .... it is SO fun to receive a box of happiness. This has been a strange and tough year for all of us and I know, for me, my stress level and anxiety have skyrocketed. Just seeing the cheerful box, itself, gave me a lift. Thank you for being brave and starting up a way to help us women find some self-care!"
"I had never heard of or used a jade roller. This is a game changer for me girls! I've been a stay-at-home mom and now just transitioning back to work and the stress headaches, rushed schedule and just change have me WAY MORE tense than I realized until I rolled that magic tool over my face."
"I am so thrilled to have gotten my box. I love all the items and I will use all of them. My daughter wants all of the items as well. Four of the items I was going to purchase this weekend. I will be ordering again. Great job with the box. I am so pleased!"
"Just another big thank you! I use oils in my everyday life to combat my anxiety and depression. This small diffuser fits in my cup holder and plugs into my car which makes long car rides a better experience for me. You have helped me in more ways than you will ever know and I am grateful."
And now, for those who didn't get the Fall crate, a drum roll, please .... here's what it included.
— A satin eye mask, a pair of satin pillowcases, and a satin robe. All stylish, comfortable, and designed to help you rest well and wake up refreshed.
— A book AND a wine tumbler. So you can have your own private book club, without leaving home,.
— A jade facial roller to glide over your skin and get you glowing.
— A reusable and beautifully designed tote bag that's both light — and strong.
