My Little Frenchie Box

My Little Frenchie Box
Oh my goodness just when I thought last month's box here was the best of all boxes I have received so far, My Little Box go and blow my mind again and completely top last month's box by a mile. If I'm honest I thought this was going to be a 'lovey dovey' box that fitted in with Valentine's Day but instead it is a My Little 'Frenchie' themed box - which I am still trying to work out where the french theme is. This box is wonderful and filled with lots of useful things that will be put to great use! I don't know how they can top this box off anymore.

Once I opened up my box I was welcomed with one of My Little Box's greetings cards. This card reads "life is never what it seems - and that's the great thing about it" I love this quote as it is so easy to relate to as my life so far has never ran the way I wanted it to go but yet it is still great and adventurous. This card has straight away been placed on my wall of inspiration. I do think these cards are wonderful to give to someone who is having an off day and may need a bit of cheering up or in my case spread across my wall to always look at.

Behind the greetings card was another cute, little magazine filled with lots of inspiration, interviews, photography, tutorials, tips and some positive quotes to keep you motivated and happy. I always find these magazines so useful for throwing in your bag to read on the go. I always like to read these on the train or any breaks I take. I always find some really helpful tips in these books and not to be biased to my degree (advertising/design) I like how these have more content less adverts.

The first surprise I was welcomed with came in this lovely red box and once I had opened the box I came across a smartphone case. This case is so handy for me because it keeps my screen clean and avoids any scratches. It is such a classy mini pouch that will come of use to me, even if I don't use it to hold my phone I would use it to store my bank cards or tickets! So useful.

As well as the smartphone case I had also came across another dainty, useful item; a pot of messages. Now I love stuff like this the whole idea of storing your thoughts or quotes onto paper and roll up into a jar really appeals to me because it the simplest of things to brighten up your day. Hiding in this little pot are special little messages to brighten up my day. This now has a privilege place on my desk area so I am able to grab one whenever I fancy.

Once I finished unraveling everything in boxes, bows and whatnot I finally came across another dainty drawstring bag filled with some lovely makeup products. The first beauty product I pulled out was from My Little Beauty which is My Little Box's makeup range. The product I received this month was a Complexion Enhancer that brightens up your skin. This can be used for all skin colours and will bring your skin back to life. The second product I had come across really got me screaming inside because it was by the high end brand By Terry. I received a Waterproof Khol Pencil from By Terry which will come in useful! I was so shocked to see this brand in my box that I started to think there may have been a mistake. 

The third product I came across was the Super Liner Brow Artist Shaper by Loreal Paris. This is a 3 in 1 product which you will know by now I love. It contains a coloured pencil to draw and intensify your brows, then discipline your arch using the soft brush tip and finally fix your brows in place with the clear wax based formula. These steps supposedly help you achieve the bushy brows like Kate Middleton. I usually receive 3 makeup products and 2/3 other bits but this time I received 4 makeup-y pieces, so the last makeup item I pulled out was in fact DHC Blotting Paper. Being oily skinned these always come in handy for on the go, they always have a permanent place in my handbag so I am able to reduce any oils that appear as the day goes on. I think the packaging for these is beautiful and definitely knocks off my Boot's own range blotting papers from my bag.

Overall I am really quite flabbergasted is the word to describe how I feel about the quality and effort put into this month's box. I think now is the perfect timing to be sending out little motivational, happy quotes to keep our moods flying high. These box's just keep getting better so I can't wait for next month's box already!

Love it.
