Beauty And A Book Box launched in January 2019, after owner Nisha Parker and partners decided it was time for a change. Nisha is an educator and author. After attending events across the U.S. in 2017 and 2018- she realized that the desire to read and be well-read, had taken a backseat for a lot of women that she met. After seeing the hike in women learning how to do make-up and the increase in interest, even for herself – she decided to collaborate with some friends in various industries to launch a subscription box that would offer both of passions.
