BOX // My Little Paris Box

I can't remember where exactly I first saw about the My Little Box subscription boxes but I think it might have been at the Queens website and I knew as soon as I saw it that I wanted in - it's in the same vein as the beauty boxes we have here such as Glossy Box or Birchbox but with a difference because it's a mix of lifestyle and beauty so for example in this box, I had a little Laura Mercier Primer, A mini Nuxe Oil and a brightening pen (which has just jogged my memory that I haven't tried this yet!) but I also got a little Paris notebook, some stickers and a laptop case. I love it, I like that there's a bit more of a surprise element, I've looked at some of the past boxes they've had in France and they include bags, sunglasses, tops, books so you never quite know what you'll get. The packaging is really lovely and the level of detail down to the sticker in the cover is really lovely.

It makes it all feel a little bit luxurious - I'm 100% won over - if you want to check it out it works out at £15/month incl Postage.                                                                                                                

BOX // Birchbox September 2014

Oh Happy Days indeed, as beauty boxes go, this is probably one of the better ones that I've received recently, I gave up my glossybox a while back after several dissapointing boxes but there's just something about getting a surprise box of products every month that I just love, even if I don't end up loving all of the products so I think I'll always have one box on the go. This month, I recognise at least 4 of the brands which is nice, I like the element of discovering new products in these boxes but it's always nice to have big brands in there as well. 

Beautyblender & Mini Cleansing Soap 

I'm quite excited to try this, I know a lot of people have had this in past boxes but I always seemed to miss out on it - I'm not a huge fan of applying make up with sponges, I alread have the Real Techniques sponge but this is supposed to be the best of the best, so I'm glad I get the chance to try it out!

Korres - Citrus Shower Gel

Korres is a favourite brand of mine, I love the lip balms, the shower gels and the skin care but I'm really not a fan of this scent, it's citrus but more on the bitter lemon side, still, it's not horrible and it's a good size so will be good for throwing in my travel bag.

Benefit It's Potent Eye Cream

I've used this several times and have a few travel sizes of this already but I'm a big fan so it's always good to have another one, this is great for dark circles and is nice and moisturising - I'm a fan of the Benefit skincare overall to be honest, considering it's a beauty brand, they do skincare pretty well.

Model Co Lip Gloss in Morocco

This was a big surprise for me, I was quite disappointed to see this colour in the box, I tend to reach for pink or peachy glosses but this is more of a neutral, pinky brown shade and I'm in love with it, I will 100% be repurchasing this. When applied to the lips, it's a my lips but better shade, it's a very moisturising formula and doesn't leave my lips super sticky.

Agave Oil

I haven't tried this one yet but again, another great one for a travel bag, I'm off home to Ireland at the end of the month so I'll be taking this with me.

WISHLIST // Weekly Wishlist #6

Weekly Wishlist #6

I am OBSESSED with anything with a dinosaur print on it at the minute and you all know my fondness for Pyjama's so I'm guessing that t-shirt will be winging it's way to me soon! I'm also into that hip flask a lot!! I've always kind of liked the idea of having a little hip flask to carry around, not that I'd use it but i think i'd feel like a bit of a 50's girl for some reason! 

Anywho, hope you all have a good week!
