September 18, 2014
birchbox-september

How am I still catching up on so many blogs? Where does time go? How is it Birchbox time again! Alas, this month’s box has arrive promptly and has a “Happy Days” theme. – a box to celebrate capturing nostalgic moments and making new ones. Before I start with the contents, it’s important to note that I had help from a very special individual. Not only was I given help to open this month’s box, but I also had help…

The Vegan Kind Beauty Box

September 15, 2014
TVKBB

For those of you who are regular readers, you will know that The Vegan Kind is a monthly subscription box that delivers 100% Vegan and cruelty free snacks, lifestyle items and beauty products. You will also probably know that it’s one of my favorite monthly boxes and a huge part of this is down to the discovery of new Vegan products. When they announced they would be releasing a one off beauty box packed with cruelty free products I was…

Glossybox August 2014 Review

August 29, 2014
glossybox-august-14

I know I cancelled by subscription to Glossybox, but I’ve still ended up with two boxes thanks to my hoard of Glossydots meaning they were free of charge. Since returning from festival season I’ve managed to come back to a Vegan Kind box, Birchbox and this month’s Glossybox so I’ve definitely been spoilt rotten. We all know my track record with Glossybox has been a little rocky as of late and I’ve had a tendency to be severely disappointed with…

Stars and Stripes Glossybox July 2014

July 20, 2014
Glossybox July 2014

I have returned from hibernation! There are plenty of reasons why I took a little break from blogging and left HBFL in the very capable hands of Amie for a few weeks, but I shan’t go into them now for there are shiny treats inside this pretty stars and stripes box and playing with make-up is always more fun than waxing lyrical about mushy feelings! This is an awesome box with four full size products and a generous 15ml sample,…

Birchbox July 2014 Review

July 10, 2014
Birchbox-Jul-14

Birchbox is my only long standing beauty box to come this month so I was hoping for something spectacular after I finally decided to cancel my Glossybox (we’ll see how long that lasts!) I’d seen a few spoilers for this month, but nothing that was overly exciting – this theme for this box is Sun, Sea & Sand but I can’t say there were many products that instantly made me think of any of those. Weleda – Nourishing Shamppo – 18ml…

Glossybox June 2014 Review

June 16, 2014
glossybox-june-14

This is the last of my beauty boxes to arrive this month, and Gem and I have been waiting on tenterhooks after a few spoilers were going around, but now the wait is over and I can finally see what is in my Glossybox! The first thing I noticed, is that mine was prepared a little more shoddily than the usually impeccable presentation. My Glossybox (GB)  sticker looked as though it had already been peeled off, and everything was just…

Birchbox Review June 2014 – Global Strikers

June 15, 2014
Birchbox June 2014

With a cheerful nod towards World Cup season, the June Birchbox has a “Global Strikers” theme and a cute bag emblazoned with the Brazil flag colours. I’m a huge fan of the World Cup, and in fact delayed writing this very blog post so that I could enjoy the England V Italy match fully (IE prepare many beers!). Unfortunately it was a loss for England, but I enjoyed every moment of it none the less! Before kicking off (hur hur) the…

Love me Beauty June1

  I’ve been watching the front door like a hawk ever since I saw this months beauty boxes showing up on my Twitter and Instagram feed and the first to make an appearance was this amazing selection from Love Me Beauty! Unlike other subscription boxes where you get sent a random selection, Love Me Beauty allows you to pick the exact box you want from three menus (though individual shades can still vary!) This month I chose edition 1 and I…

Love Me Beauty Review – May 2014 – Edition 1

May 20, 2014
lib-may-14-thumb

I promised myself last month that I would cancel my Love me Beauty subscription, but the problem with knowing what you are getting, is that sometimes you want it even more. I just couldn’t resist keeping my subscription for another box when I saw the cute little notebooks in this edition. The one thing I adore about this box, is how carefully packaged it is. As you can see above, the products are placed so neatly, that it really does…

Glossybox May 2014 - Summer Beauty Edit With Superdrug

  Glossybox have been massive teases this month, dropping loads of hints about their upcoming collaboration (we all guessed it would be Superdrug though, right?) but boy was all the suspense worth it! This is hands down my best box ever with a whopping five full sized items and two samples! I’ll use absolutely everything and can honestly say there’s nothing I would change.   Max Factor Facefinity All Day Primer This alone is worth more than the cost of…
