About a week ago I had an email from My Little Box saying that they were having trouble sending out this month’s batch of boxes – and that they should arrive straight away. Whilst initially a bit glum – I thought actually during a no spend month it will give me something to look forward to during the grey weeks at the end of the month – so I was surprised when this turned up just 3 days after their normal due date.
June 2015’s My Little Box welcomes another french theme – “My Little French Riviera” – and whilst it was quite a grey evening on discovering this had been left in my shed, as I opened it was like a ray of french sunshine made in collaboration with designer Sarah Lavoine. Co-ordinating very well with my living room decor, this box is very blue.
This month the box included the regular fold out magazine with a pretty print which matched the box. With 2 lifestyle items and a little sea of blue beauty products, this box has been very well tied in with the theme.
The Lifestyle ITEMs
2 Little Pots
These fold out thin plastic pots can be used for anything, plant holders, pen pots etc (they’re thin & flexible – think the big ikea plastic bags). I’m not too sure what I will use these for yet – but I’m thinking some kind of bathroom storage.
It’s only been this week that I’ve been eyeing up similar Rayban Erika sunglasses online, whilst I would normally opt for a more brown frame, this is an interesting frame colour that’s black/brown/purpley. I love wayfarers, but they just don’t suit my face, and I think these are a more feminine-cat eyed alternative. Really happy to have these and see how much I like wearing them, will give me a good idea as to whether it’s worth me splashing the cash on a pair of Rayban’s!
THE BEAUTY PRODUCTS
Loved by Sarah Lavoine Nail Polish in 501
This will come as a bit of a shock for people who read my blog – I don’t think I have a shade like this in my collection – in a collection of 150+ that’s quite good surprising. This is a pretty teal shade, which I’m excited to give a try out of!
Kerastase Ciment Thermique
I had a bit of a “Great! Kerastase… but what is it?” moment with this product. Its a heat activated treatment designed to smooth out split ends, help stop breakage, increase shine & smoothness. I’ve tried products like this in the past and have never been that keen on them – but have liked everything that I’ve tried from Kerastase, so I am looking forward to trying this
My Little Beauty Gommage Marin
Last but not least is this months product from box maker My Little Beauty – adorned with pretty anchors, this is a tube of body scrub – handy as I’ve just finished off my coffee scrub! It’s not the biggest size for a body product, but a quick whiff off this takes you straight to the seaside. Made with sea salt and ajonc water – this claims to be refreshing and I think it will be!
What do you think of this month’s box? I must say this is one of my favourites in a while – I love everything (or at least I’m excited to try everything)!
