As some of you may know from a previous post, I have a monthly subscription with My Little Box, I love the service and beautiful hand-picked, hand-crafted vibe to each of the boxes;they are such a special treat to receive in the post!

Every month the box has a different theme and this month it was based on the area of Provence in France, which I thought was such a sweet idea. 

Here is what my package contained: 


A cute little DIY bracelet kit...


The monthly edition of their magazine and some dress up magnets (childhood throwback!)...


And some beautiful mini products from L'Occitane along with a gorgeous, creamy eye shadow stick from their own beauty line! 


I am SO pleased with the box this month, it was packaged so beautifully and I can't wait to try out all of the little gifts!


Let me know what you think of My Little Box?
And is there any other subscription boxes that you recommend?

So recently I made a massive Topshop order and I thought I'd share with you a few of the pieces I picked up. There are so many gorgeous clothes out this season and as a Topshop ADDICT  I just can't resist everytime I go into a store or look on the website! This time, I decided to pick up some (mainly monochrome!) staples that I thought were so pretty and that I could work into my wardrobe this Summer!

I will try my best to link all of the pieces at the end



Links

(In order:)


Some of the pieces with no link you may be able to find in store if you keep your eyes peeled :)




Let me know which staple was your favourite? And where do you like shopping at the moment?

MAYBELLINE LASH SENSATIONAL

So, I have found a new mascara that I ADORE and I thought I would share it with you all! I'm sure most of you have seen the new Lash Sensational Mascara from Maybelline, and I can confirm that in my opinion, it is one of the best drugstore mascaras out there.


I just couldn't resist picking it up in Boots a few days ago because of the gorgeous pinky-rose packaging, it's so beautiful. I had also heard lots of good things from friends and fellow bloggers to I was eager to give it a try! It was only £7.99 too, which I thought was such a great price for a drugstore mascara that I prefer so much more than some high end mascaras!


This is what Maybelline says about Lash Sensational Mascara:

"Introducing Lash Sensational: Our unique, open-fan brush and fresh-liquid formula capture and volumize lashes from root to tip. Use inner curve to reach the roots of lashes. Follow through tips of lashes with longer bristles to fan out."

I personally love the brush and wand, it is so interesting and really grips and defines your lashes to give a beautiful, fluttery look.


As you can probably tell, I am very impressed by this mascara. Let me know your thoughts if you have tried it?

Also, let me know what mascaras you have been loving recently?

What's In My Bag

What's In My Bag
Wednesday, 6 May 2015
Read post
I always love to know what other people keep in their handbags, and the 'What's In My Bag' post is still as intriguing to me now as it was when I first stumbled across them. There's something fun and mischievous about discovering what delights other people carry about with them. And I usually come away with a number of goodies added to my wish list… oops!

Recently, I have got a new bag so it only seemed right that I shared with you everything I manage to cram inside of it! Let me just say first of all, I am definitely an over-packer and I probably don't use half of the things in my bag all the time! I've tried my hardest with a smaller bag to narrow it down to 'essentials'. But...its better to be prepared eh?


I love this bag from River Island because it is such a perfect size, so it is easy to carry around as an everyday bag. Black and gold bags are just so classic and go with everything so it is a really versatile addition to my wardrobe too! I would definitely recommend River Island bags to anyone because they are so beautiful and well made, Ii can tell this bag is going to last me a long time.


In my bag:

1. Notepad and Pen- I love carrying around a notepad to jot any blogging, photo or general ideas down in when I am out and about. I got this beautiful notebook as a gift for my birthday and it is the perfect size to slip in my handbag.

2. Purse- with all of the shopping I do, my purse is definitely an essential! This purse is from New Look a couple of years ago but there are so many purses out now similar to it.

3. Keys- my keys obviously lock my house but I also love collecting silver keyrings to cluster together because it makes them easier to find in my bag. Also, each keyring carries a particular memory of when I bought it which is really special.

4. Hand Cream- my hands get really dry so its always necessary for me to carry around a good hand cream. I got this Caudalie Hand Cream in a My Little Box subscription and I love it! It is really moisturising, smells amazing, and has really good ingredients like avocados in it...mmm!

5. Lip balms- I can't stand having chapped lips, so I always make sure I have a few lip balms to hand! Currently I have been reaching for the Nivea Lip Butters (in vanilla or blueberry) and Nivea Fruity Shine (in watermelon) because they are SO moisturising and smell delicious!

6. Phone- obviously I couldn't leave the house without my phone. I have the iphone 5 and my case is from Ted Baker and I love the pattern, it is so pretty.

7. Sunglasses and case- as the weather is brightening up in England (I've probably jinxed it now...) I have began to carry around my sunglasses with so I can make the most of any sunny moment! My sunglasses and case are both from Mango and I can tell they are going to be a definite staple this summer.

And of course, less pretty other jumbled bits like tissues, tickets and sweets...the usual.


I hope you enjoyed having a nosy in to what I like to keep in my bag! Let me know what your favourite bag is at the moment and your 3 essentials that you always carry around with you?

Also, if you have a 'What's In My Bag' post feel free to link it below in the comments as I would love to check it out!
