I'm so sorry for lack of posts lately, I've been setting up my just-for-fun website www.slummymummy.co.uk which is basically about my failings as a parent, or as I like to call it, real life!
Moving swiftly on! As you may be able to tell from the pictures, I've just recieved my latest box, not a beauty box you'll note, although it does have some beauty items in it, but its also a fashion, lifestyle and accessory box according to the company
My Little Box.
When you open the gorgeous, high end box, it literally is a box of delights! You're greeted with a ribbon wrapped package, and it just oozes quality and luxury. The first thing is an A5 sized print which I'll be popping onto my "pretty board" - it could easily be framed to make a lovely print for the wall. The next thing to come out of the box is what looks like a little Paris scene, but actually contains little 3D stickers, which would look gorgeous on a scrapbook or for decorating whatever things you like to decorate really!
Underneath that, we come to a little package which, when taken out of it's brown cardboard holder turns out to be a lovely, and very high quality, laptop sleeve. It's too big for an iPad, but measures approx. 33cm x 25cm and is suitable for a 15 inch screen. I only have an iPad and a much bigger laptop which is why this gorgeous sleeve will be part of a competition which will be announced in the coming days (I'll pop a picture of the goodies on offer below!).
Then we come to the again, high quality, drawstring bag, which is so perfect for so many things I'm not quite sure what I'm going to use it for just yet. But it will be used, its design of little bows and "My Little Box" all over it is just too cute! In the bag are the beauty items. This month there was a Laura Mercier Primer, very decent sized tube I have to say! Also a jar of the well known and loved Nuxe dry oil, which is one of my basic essential items, used on my hair, skin, just about anywhere I need moisture and where I want the gorgeous scent! The last beauty item is made by the beauty brand owned by the My Little Box company, especially to put into their boxes, called My Little Beauty. This months item is a highlighting concealer, along the Touché Éclat style. It only comes in one colour so it's more a highlighter than a concealer. I haven't actually tried it yet, so I'll keep you updated on that!
The last item, and the one I love best actually, is the cutest of cutes notebook! It's a good A5 size and has a red elasticated holder around it to hold any bits and pieces in it, or to keep your page for you. The first few pages tell you a bit about the company, and even this is done in the prettiest way, and using the same style illustrations that are on everything else. The rest of the notebook is plain pages so great for artists who want to sketch, aswell as for notes. I'll be using mine for my post ideas. Again, the quality is amazing and screams luxury and high end.
The price for this little lot of loveliness is £14.95 per month including postage, and like Birchbox, you can pay monthly and just stop when you want to stop. I'm not sure yet which day of the month they start to send out the current months as I got in right at the end of September. It seems as though each month has a different theme - such as this months Paris theme. I don't know about you, but I happen to think that is a really good price for what you get, plus its so nice to see something totally different out there! I am a HUGE stationary geek aswell as beauty addict so its perfect for me and I literally can't wait for the October box! Literally cannot wait! Would I recommend it?? Oh yes, most definitely! I think it would take a really big fail for me to ever dislike this company, and I'm usually quite cynical about repeat quality, but I just know there is no way this company would send out anything inferior! Fingers crossed!
Last but not least - as I said, unfortunately for me, I don't have need of a 15inch laptop sleeve, so I'll be giving it away in a competition. I'm still working in the terms of the comp, but will pop a picture below of the lovely goodies that are going to come with your laptop sleeve. I've put some of my most favourite items in there, but will go into detail more on the competition post! Keep your eyes open on Twitter for the announcement and terms! And it will be some time this week but I think I'm just going to leave you hanging there....(just incase my life goes a bit pear shaped and I'm late again! 😉).
Take care my lovelies!
