MY LITTLE BOX #1
‘Paris is always a good idea.’ – Audrey Hepburn
My Little Box was a beauty box that was exclusive in Paris for ages until news broke that it was finally shipping to the UK, and I had to be a part of it! My Little Box is a fashion, beauty and lifestyle box full of goodies centered around a different theme every month. Every box tends to include at least 2 must-have beauty product and 1 from the in house beauty range My Little Beauty, fashion and lifestyle accessories, illustrated goodies from their in house illustrator Kanako, and their little monthly magazine My Little World.
The box itself costs £11, which is only one pound more than most other beauty boxes about right now, but having tried a few out in the past, the standard was no where near My Little Box! The postage is only £3.95 and is delivered from Paris, can someone say bargain alert? If you do decide to cancel – even though I don’t know why you would – there’s no fuss; you can just cancel online as soon as you receive your box and your subscription will be cancelled.
This month features an exclusive box from Diane Von Furstenberg. When I opened the packaged it revealed the most beautifully designed box! It was so pretty; the picture honesty doesn’t do it any justice!
The first thing I see is this picture with the quote ‘be the woman you want to be’ and signed by Diane which went straight on my pin board.
Next is the magazine devoted entirely to Diane, from interviews with her and her friends, to photo shoots in her style! The magazine also featured Diane’s favourite books, which was my favourite bit!
This is probably the only thing I won’t use of the entire box, and it’s a pin. While its lovely, I’m not a very big pin person so I’m not sure what I’ll do with this yet. On the card it says, ‘a kiss from Diane: this bold lip pin effortlessly embodies the confidence and joie de vivre of Diane Von Furstenberg.’
Next was this envelope, which once opened revealed the most beautiful scarf! (I’m wearing it right now with my pajamas it’s that nice!) I am such a scarf person, so this is a beautiful addition to my collection. It definitely wasn’t what I was expecting to be included in the box. It even has 4 suggestions on how to wear it! CUTE!
The last thing in the box was the bag that held my Beauty goodies in! First I pulled out a sample sized L’Occitane hand cream in their new vanilla scent, and I immediately slathered in on and it smells absolutely divine. My favourite scent is vanilla so I will literally be wearing this everyday, and I can tell you now, I’ll be sad when its finished!
Then I pulled out a travel sized Kérastase Laque Noire hairspray. Now, I’m not typically one for hairspray but I will definitely be giving it a try, considering how windy it’s been lately; it’ll be nice to turn up to class without a birds nest on my head! Last the product from their own beauty range, which turns out to be a bottle of their Micellar Cleansing Water. I will definitely be trying it out, and seeing how good it is compared to the one I’m using right now.
All that was left in the box were some vouchers to the brands provided, which I will definitely be looking at! I guess all that’s left to say is I can’t wait for next months box!
