7 Social Good Subscription Boxes

Subscription boxes are super popular right now and you can find monthly boxes of everything from jerky to kid’s crafts. Ever since I went to the AYA Summit in DC last month, I have tried to focus on what I can do to empower women from my own home. One of those ways is to buy fair trade or support products and businesses that donate back to non-profits.

Here are seven social good subscription boxes that would be a perfect gift for yourself or a gift this Christmas season!

TRESemmé Transformation

Enjoy gorgeous, salon-smooth hair for the week or up to 3 washes. That sounds fabulous, right? I decided to take the TRESemmé Transformation by using the Tresemmé Keratin Smooth 7 day Smooth System Heat Activated Treatment since I use the hair straightener every day. This treatment is specifically designed for use with flat irons to create a style with less frizz and more manageability to achieve that look when you just come out of the salon!

Here is my before styling and after styling photo. I combed the Heat Activated Treatment through wet hair and blow dried as usual. The Thermal Technology is then activated when you use your flat iron. For my style, I simply wrapped my hair around my flat iron to create loose waves.

Poison Apple Halloween Punch

Poison Apple Halloween Punch.

Halloween is only a few days away! If you are having a Halloween party, or just want to make this day a little extra spooky for the kids, this Poison Apple Halloween Punch is super easy to make on a whim and only has four ingredients.

This is the perfect opportunity to recycle old glass jars for the potion and poison bottles. I spent very little money and I just purchased the spider webs and plastic worms and rats from the dollar store!

Want to go above-and-beyond? Dry ice creates a fun, spooky effect and is a neat experiment for the kids to see.

Check out my full article and recipe over at Living Litehouse!

Reuse glass jars for Halloween "potions." Fill them with food coloring and plastic bugs!
