Practicing Self Care With BabbleBoxx

This post is sponsored by

I am a big proponent of taking care of yourself. With so much stress on my plate as a mom of four, as well as changing seasons filled with allergies, illnesses and injuries, I will take any help in preparing for the hard times in life. So when BabbleBoxx sent me their Tender, Love and Care box filled to the brim with amazing products, I was super excited to check them out!

Let’s begin by talking about my favorite thing – a quality book! I’m a huge reader, and my kids are growing to be big readers, as well. We love novels that can teach us something about ourselves and the world. That’s why I’m in love with Louisiana’s Way Home from Candlewick

It’s a book by Newbery Medalist Kate DiCamillo, and it’s a beautiful middle grade novel about discovering who you are and who you want to be. It’s an instant #1 New York Times bestseller, and it’s a companion title to Raymie Nightingale, a 2017 National Book Award finalist. 

I highly recommend it as a great book for young girls and boys, but even I loved it as a grown woman! Use the promotion code CANDLEWICK at checkout on for 25% off all books. Only valid to US purchases.

While you read this fabulous story, cuddle up in your favorite fuzzy blanket and enjoy a nice cup of Red Diamond Green Tea or coffee. The tea is actually SUPER delish. I love that Red Diamond has a relationship that spans four generations with one of the largest tea importers in the country, which means they can source the finest quality tea from around the world. Their blend of Orange Pekoe and Pekoe cut black teas means you get the highest quality iced tea. And the lack of stem content in Red Diamond means a better tea flavor. 

I’m also a huge fan of their Colombian Ground coffee. The coffee beans are grown only at a high altitude. They are hand picked, sun dried and roasted in small batches. The quality is apparent in every sip.

Perhaps my favorite thing in the TLC BabbleBoxx were the SMASHCRISPY Treats! They were SO yummy. I had to hide them from my kids so I could enjoy them all myself! They’re just like the crispy rice treats from childhood, only they are way better. They’re made from natural ingredients and are gluten, soy, dairy and nut free! My favorite was the Cinnamon Churro flavor! YUM!



As a huge fan of preventative care and supplementation, I was really pleased to see these awesome Pure Synergy® Rapid Rescue® & Pure Synergy® Enzyme Power™ bottles in my BabbleBoxx. 

Rapid Rescue bolsters your body’s natural protectors. Filled with echinacea elderberry extract, it’s reinforced with olive leaf, oregano, and other immunity boosters. It supports healthy immunity so you don’t have to go it alone. 

The Enzyme Power™ boosts digestion, absorption, and nutrient utilization while providing gut microbiome and immune system support. The digestive enzymes get an assist from tummy-taming herbs and spices, including ginger and fennel. It’s gentle on the tummy, and it works!

Finally, we have the tried and true product that I’ve been using since childhood! Neo-Synephrine Nasal Sprays are the perfect remedies for nasal congestion, sinus pressure and a stuffy nose. They are the only medicated nasal spray concentration approved for use in children down to age 2! We always keep them in our medicine cupboard. Find them at  Walgreens, WalMart, Amazon, and others.

You can always find a coupon for Neo-Synephrine on their website and on retailer and coupon sites nationally

All in all, this BabbleBoxx, like my last one, was a real success, filled with items that really spoke to me as a mom and a woman. I love that these products work well together to promote proper self care and caring for those you love. I can honestly recommend every single item.
