My Little Energy Box

My Little Energy Box
I sometimes wonder whether or not My Little Box can read my mind regarding what the theme of the box is, scary. This month's box is coincidentally called 'my little energy box' which contains a bunch of products to help get you motivated and back on your feet after the Christmas holidays. Let's face is those extra sweet mince pies and tub of Quality Streets over the Christmas unfortunately have a cost at the end. Now I may not have gained any weight over the Christmas (luckily!) but, getting myself out of that 'it is too cold to go running' phase becomes a challenge once Christmas has just passed. This box I think will help me get back on my feet and aid me away from those sweet mince pies for another 11 months, I hope.

Once I opened my box I was greeted with another one of My Little Box's greetings cards. This quote reads "Happy new year, happy new dreams, happy new days, happy new desires, happy new energy, happy 2015" which I think is such a lovely quote that fits in well with the motivational, positive vibe. As I've said numerous times before these cards would make lovely little notes to someone who is having a bit of an off day or look lovely presented in a photo frame on the wall. I like to use these cards as a bit of inspiration for when I am in need of it!

Behind the greetings card was another cute, little magazine filled with lots of inspirational, positive quotes to help keep you motivated. As well as some hairstyles, beautiful photography, lots & lots of tips, snippets of interviews and the best I've seen so far is a schedule of workout challenges to last the whole month, this I think is brilliant to cut out and pin on your wall to get into a fitness routine (definitely going to be doing this!). I always throw these magazines in my handbag because they are just full of amazing bits I enjoy to read and learn about!

Sticking with the theme of energy and motivation My Little Box included a monthly calender which is filled with illustrated images, motivational quotes and even a little bit of Sudoku to play - cute right?! I've already popped this up on my cupboard door and been jotting down things to keep me organised. I don't think I would use this to fill in what days I will be running or hitting the gym but I will be using this to keep on top of life. Lovely little calender to have on display!

 Behind the cute, little calender was a mini gym bag which reads "good energy is contagious" again another inspirational quote to keep you motivated. I definitely think I will be using this bag when I register to the gym over the next few weeks, this will be perfect to chuck in some extra clothes and whatnot.

Once I finished unravelling everything within the bow tucked right at the bottom was the beauty products hidden within another dainty drawstring bag. The first beauty product I pulled out was a Nails Inc nail varnish in the shade tarte red, £11. I am not much of a lover for nail varnish if am honest, it is rare that I will purchase them. But this colour is really festive and fits in with the time of year so maybe I will give it a try.
The next product I received was Talika's photo-hydra day cream worth £43.50 for 50ml. This I believe is a moisturizer that adds hydration and a glow too, for the price I am definitely going to give this a go. I think this could be a good skin 'pick me up' especially if you are run low or are in need of a touch up. 
The last product I received was from the My Little Box's own beauty range which is an energizing mist worth £7.50. I love receiving some of My Little Box's own range because so far everything I have received I have loved using. This energizing mist definitely fits in with the theme of the box of energy. I think this would be great to use on those mornings where you just cannot be bothered or after you have been exercising this might be a nice little touch up to keep your skin refreshed.

Overall I am really happy with the quality and the effort put into this first month's box of 2015. I think it is the perfect timing to be sending out motivational quotes and cute pieces to help keep people motivated as lets face it exercise can be a little tedious without some pretty bits. I definitely think this box is worth checking out because you always receive a bit of everything from beauty, fashion and lifestyle. Never gets boring!

Amazing.

Are you in love with this box yet??

  5. I was totally expecting a box like this, well at least hoping so I was really happy, I would have liked maybe a snack bar or tablets or just something more than a gym bag, but I still think these boxes are so cute xx

  17. Hi Katie,

    Thanks so much for responding to my tweet - i am so happy to be spreading the love around the blogging world! I absolutely adore your blog! It's so girly and adorable, and feels like reading a magazine! I love how you mix your photography (which is STUNNING) with great writing, and readable content. It's a breath of fresh air to see a good chunk of writing along with beauty posts and product reviews.

    Your blog is bright and welcoming, and you write like a big sister which is something I love about beauty blogs. Your advice is relatable and not patronising.

    Keep doing what you're doing, it's fab.

    Georgi xx
