Sorry for the quiet time, I finally started watching Breaking Bad and it’s every bit as addictive as the rumours suggested. But I’m back – with another box!
If you saw my last review, you’ll know I loved the My Little Frenchie Box from the My Little Box subscription service. It probably won’t come as a surprise to learn that I decided to continue my subscription – and was incredibly excited to receive the latest box!
What’s in the box?
This month’s box includes:
- Superstickers – stickers for superheroes, duh!
- My Little World magazine
- Kerastase Cristal conditioner
- Caudalie hand and nail cream
- Lip and cheek pen
- A grey tee shirt
Just like last time, everything was beautifully presented and there were lovely illustrations everywhere. A* !
I’m pretty excited about using the Kerastase conditioner – I’m not the sort of person to splash out on expensive hair products (to me, Aussie is the height of luxury) so it’ll be interesting to see if it makes an actual difference to the ole barnet. I’ll keep you posted.
I don’t actually use hand cream very often, but this Caudalie stuff arrived at the right time – the change of season has left my hands feeling quite dry and icky lately (does this happen to anyone else?). Given its price tag, I’m expecting great results.
The ‘pencil bluff’ is a pretty cool idea – one product to act as both a lipstick and a blusher – I’m all about saving make-up bag space. I received a coral colour, which isn’t my favourite (quite jealous of the subscribers who got the red colour!). But it’s a great blush colour, with a hint of sparkle, and it gives quite a retro 60’s-looking lip – which, actually, is kind of cool, even if it’s not my usual colour.
I loved this month’s magazine. Empowering girl-power pieces, an interview with WishWishWish (who is my all-time favourite blogger) and plenty of brightly hued, pop-art inspired photo spreads. And check out the pull-out pages for your wall. 10/10 for sassiness.
But the big ‘life’ piece for this month’s box was the grey tee! I’ve had a nosy on Instagram and spotted three different versions: one says ‘I believe I can fly’, another ‘we can be heroes just for one day’, and also, ‘somewhere over the rainbow’. You can’t go wrong with an inspirational song lyric.
The tee shirt also fits really well – which is a first for me – and I love the rolled sleeves.
I thought I’d take a sassy snap to show it off. Die-hard fans of my blogs might remember this feather tattoo.
The lyric on my tee reminds me of this Langston Hughes poem:
Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die,
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go,
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.
Keep dreaming big, ladies. And never, ever give up. x
