    Mapleblume Subscription Box

    Subscription boxes always intrigue me but are something I haven’t tried much of in the past. I recently recieved Mapleblume‘s December 2016 box* and was really impressed with it! Mapleblume is a Canadian company that delivers luxury beauty boxes every other month. The boxes are only available to Canadian residents at this time but they are hoping to expand their reach soon, which I hope happens as the boxes are really nice!
