My Little Cosy Box

My Little Cosy Box has finally arrived first thing this morning which was a lovely surprise to start my day off. I have been waiting impatiently for this box to arrive for a week or so now, I was beginning to think they forgot all about me but luckily they didn't!
It is getting closer and closer to Christmas - just over a month now I believe so subscription boxes are starting to get more wintry/festive and My Little Box is no exception.

This month's box is themed 'My Little Cosy Box' which really excited me as let's face it winter is all about the excessively long bubble baths and extra 10 minutes or in my case half an hour in bed. So I was quite excited to see what goodies I received fitting in with being cosy. Once I opened my box a bit too excitedly like a kid on Christmas day I was welcomed with another one of My Little Boxes greetings card. This quote reads "My favourite pasttime is to let time go by, to have time, to take my time, to waste time, to live out of time" - Francoise Sagan, which is a lovely quote and would make a lovely little note on the back to someone who is having a bad day. These cards are always handy!

Behind the greetings card was another cute, little magazine filled with lots & lots of tips, recipes, interviews and some beautiful cosy photography shoots. Always a nice magazine to throw in your handbag for on the go!

Once I finished unravelling everything within the bow the first goodie I had came across was an incredibly cute cushion that you microwave to create a warm, cosy cushion! I actually own a eye mask with the same idea and they are incredibly snuggly for winter or if you can't get to sleep! So this will definitely be getting used a lot in winter it is such a nice idea! On the topic of warm and winter also packed in this box was the cutest, little espresso mug which reads "how is your day gonna be?" and the answer is smartly at the bottom of your cup. So in order to get your answer you finish the drink to find the word "happy" scribbled right at the bottom quirky right? or am I just easily amused. On the other side of the mug is a cute illustrated drawing of a girl drinking coffee. Not that I like coffee but I do love this cup so I will find one way to use it! Definitely fitting in with the theme 'cosy'.

My Little Boxes always save the best till last as yet again right at the bottom of my box was another cute, dainty drawstring bag full of amazing beauty treats! The first thing I pulled out was a Yves Rocher eyeshadow in the shade 'brun cafe mat' which is a beautiful chocolate brown almost black shade. This is a nice eyeshadow but it is rare I use colours this dark so I will have to experiment sometime! The next product I received was a mascara by My Little Box beauty themselves, I do love how they include little pieces of their own every month! This mascara looks amazing so I can't wait to try it. And last but not least was a black eyeliner by Arcancil Paris, I've never heard of this brand before but I will be given it a try! All of these goodies would create very dramatic, dark makeup so they are very fitting with the time of year.

Overall I am really happy with the quality and effort been put into this months box! A lot of thought went into this again and some amazing items to use such as the cushion and cute mug! All very fitting in with winter and being cosy. I definitely think this box is worth checking out because not only do you receive some amazing beauty products, you receive some life and fashion bits too!

  12. I quite liked My Little Box this month but now I'm really annoyed - I got a (mini) Essie nail varnish instead of the Yves Rocher eyeshadow which is less than half the value :(
