August Theme 'Heads Up' for Parents and Gift Givers

This month’s theme started out very different than it ended. As the mother of a teen I have viewed the ever-present ‘Selfie’ as a veil that my kid hides behind. I personally find the constant ‘selfie-ing’ as super annoying and simply just one more reason for my child to be constantly attached to her phone….aka the bain of my existence. My original thought process was to call this theme…”Don’t Hide Behind Your Selfie…BE Your Selfie”, with the message to young girls to be themselves as opposed to posting pics of themselves in what I construed as something akin to vanity...

BAND OF GIRLS

I recently took a week to go visit my parents in California.  It was a much-needed break from the day to day, and had been about 4 years since getting out of my working environment. I hadn't seen my parents in quite awhile, so, of course, they touted me around to friends and family to show that they did indeed have a daughter.  I did the obligatory hellos and catch-ups, but one thing kept happening over and over that simply astounded me.   As parents always do, mine had filled people in on what I was doing and my career...

DON'T JUST FLY.....SOAR

fly high girls ibbeautiful soar subscription boxes for tweens teen subscription box tween subscription box

This month's iBbeautiful box is all about teaching our girls to 'fly high', 'find their wings', and to 'soar'.  Yes, these are catch phrases that as teens and tweens may not make sense when they first hear it, yet the concept is so important to instill in them.  By 'wings' we mean their self assuredness, the belief in themselves they can do anything and to find that self confidence that bolsters and plants this belief deep into their core. We have a mission here at iBbeautiful with our monthly boxes of inspiration.  Unlike other monthly subscription boxes for teens and tweens that use...
