I have a confession to make. I am a subscription box junkie. I LOVE that getting a little surprise of something in the mail every month! It is so exciting to get that email “Your Box Has Shipped!”
The anticipation of waiting for it to arrive is just unbearable! On delivery day I rush home to get it off the front steps and rip it open. Ahh, the thrill!

What is a Subscription Box?
I’m so glad you asked!
Subscription boxes are basically a reoccurring shipment. Generally, they have a theme — yarn, snack foods, healthy foods, entrepreneurship, boxes for women, boxes for kids, boxes designed just for dads.
You get the idea.
The fun part though is the surprise! You don’t always know what’s coming in your box, but rest assured it will be awesome!
Typically when you sign up, you are set up on a recurring payment and they will bill you either monthly, quarterly or once a year depending on what plan you choose and what company you are using. You are free to cancel anytime, but make sure you read the terms because everyone is slightly different.
The most recent subscription box I received is from a company called Sparkle Hustle Grow. Julie Ball is the founder of SHG. She began with her website design and development and started her first product based business in October 2016.
The company is AWESOME! Every month has a specific theme and the products included are designed to help you reach that monthly goal. Each monthly theme is designed to help you develop your personal and professional growth.
My first box was the April box. The theme for April was “Level Up”.
In the box:
Every month includes 30-day access to a live training. This month’s training was from Emily D. Baker, ESQ and her Be A Business Badass course. Providing legal business foundations. It’s always great to know how to set up your business properly and make sure you are doing everything by the book.
Giant Gold Paper Clips
These giant paper clips are so cute! Honestly, though, I’m not even sure what you are supposed to use them for. Holding papers together, a paperweight? Do you know?
Do you have any of these? Tell me how to use them!
A trendy wireless mouse by Winx. It’s always a good idea to have an extra mouse handy.
Mine always seems to die when I’m in the middle of something super important. It never fails!
2 Port Wall Charger
A 2 port wall charger is so useful. This allows you to charge 2 devices at once without taking up all the outlet space. I have this on my nightstand so I can charge my phone and iPad in the evenings.
Coconut Cashew Bar
Coconut Cashew Bar by Primal Kitchen and a coupon to purchase more. I’m really excited to try this and they do come in additional flavors (Chocolate Hazelnut, Dark Chocolate Almond, and Macadamia Sea Salt).
I’m so in love with this adorable notepad. The texture of the paper is so nice and thick and pens write really well on it. It’s a great size to have sitting by the keyboard to jot down notes and ideas while you’re working.
And it has the definition of ‘hustle’ always reminding me to keep on chugging along!
This month’s book was Daring & Disruptive by Lisa Messenger.
When Does the Next Box Come?
The Sparkle Hustle Grow box comes out on the 15th of each month. It’s an automatic subscription box so it will ship out every month unless you cancel your subscription.
They have 2 options for you. The full-size box allows you all the awesome goodies like the ones shown above. If you aren’t interested in all the goodie (or just have too many from past boxes) and just want the meat of the box you can sign up for the mini-mailer.
The mini mailer includes the monthly book, access to the private Facebook community (which is very active and motivating) and a access to the monthly training courses.
You can sign up for your own box HERE! Make sure you use the code ‘HEYGIRL’ to get $5 off your first month!
