Glossybox - Valentine's edition!

For those of you who have not yet heard of Glossybox, allow me to introduce you!

If you're the sort of girl (or guy - there's a male version too!) that likes to feel a little bit pampered, and gets excited by the non-billing kind of post (simple things), then you might like Glossybox.

For a £10.00 per month subscription (+ p&p) Glossybox will send you 5 beauty items. These could include full or sample size products from luxury or cult brands, whether well established or new, all beautifully presented!

I originally signed up for this in December, and enjoyed the Christmas edition. You can specify the kind of products you are interested in receiving, such as skincare, make-up or nail polish. I'm guessing there are manlier options for the guys!

I love the presentation - Christmas had a lovely red box and gold sticker, whilst Valentine's is a gorgeous shocking pink. The boxes are worth keeping too, they almost look too nice to open in the first place...

In my box this month I have received the following treats:

• Eyeko skinny eye pencil in powder pink (full sized)
• F.A.B. moisturising body wash
• Murad Hybrids skin perfecting oil-free primer
• Clarins extra firming day cream
• Clarins extra firming night cream

...and a sweetie!

I've been using the Clarins items for a couple of days and they do make my face feel very pampered! At nearly £50 each for the full sized versions, you'd expect it to.

That's what I like about the Glossybox concept - you can try out great quality stuff that will last all month without forking out loads. The sample sizes are usually quite generous, unless you get the full size! If you like to chop and change and try out new things (or are just fickle with beauty like me) then it will definitely satisfy your cravings. A liitle selection of luxury or fab treats :)

I can't wait for my next one!

Ta-ta for now!

Hello Kitty Cereal

Tom's mum got me this a few months ago when we went to visit... it tasted a bit too sweet and fruity with milk so I ended up snacking on them like tiny biscuits!!

And they're was a bookmark on the back of the box to cut out yourself! I'm such a big kid :D

Ta-ta for now!

Ahhhhhh! Look how sweet (literally!) these are! Also from Marks and Spencers. Teeny-weeny!

Kawaii Ice Cream Valentine's card!

Hello... long time no blog! Things got a tad busy at work. I stare at a computer screen all day and when my workload doubled I ended up feeling too fed up to carry on being a square eyes at home. I'm used to this and can manage it now, so hopefully I can get back to a routine again :)

I saw this adorabuhlz greeting card in - where else but Marks and Spencers! They do fab cards and I was instantly drawn to this one. It's not that original in it's design in the sense that we've seen images like this before, but I like the unique sleeve/holder with a cute message, and the sparkly bead sprinkles!

I did tell Tom that we shouldn't bother with Valentine's day this year. I bought this for me as a lovely piece of cute! I will probably stick it on my wall, or if I have time, find a nice way of displaying it in a frame. It's almost too nice to scribble in and then discard, and Tom wouldn't appreciate receiving it as much as I would enjoy staring at it!

So happy early Valentine's day to meeee!
Ta-ta for now!
