My Little Dream BoxSunday, April 26, 2015
The April edition of My Little Box arrived about a week ago but I've been so busy with everything else that I've left opening it up until the last minute. My Little Dream Box is waiting to be reviewed, so here it is!
April's My Little Dream Box included:
- Walt Disney Quoted Cloud
- My Little World Magazine/Poster
- Rotating Stamp - £8
- ''Bonne Etoile'' Necklace - £20
- Do All Things With Love Drawstring bag
- 3 Beauty Products
''Dreams - your head is full of them.'' So true! I feel like this time My Little Box knew exactly how I've been feeling lately. Correction - dreaming lately. I have been dreaming about everything, mostly the future of course. It is so easy to get yourself distracted from the real world. I think this Walt Disney ''If you can dream it, you can do it'' quote is a good reminder that we can dream but it is also important to make sure that we try to achieve them.
I think hiding something inside the Once Upon A Dream cloud was an amazing idea! Jewellery designer Delphine Pariente has created an exclusive gold ''Bonne Etoile'' locket for My Little Dream Box. It has a lovely pink cord and overall it looks like a good quality fashion piece.
The note on the card says that if you want to keep the necklace longer, don't let it get in contact with water. Unfortunately I am allergic to nickel which I think this might be made from - I have to cover my trouser buttons from the inside with a little plaster, some earrings make my earlobes itchy and necklaces leave a rash around my neck. Luckily the pink cord is long so I can adjust it to the desired length and wear it over the top of my clothes. It looks cute and simple - it would be a shame to not be able to wear it.
This Rotating Stamp is such an interesting thing and it brings back so many childhood memories! When I was little, I owned a couple of stamps - smiley faces and some random words. This stamp has twelve messages/phrases and can be used on envelopes, cards, in a journal or wherever I am short of things to say. It comes with black ink and is really easy to use.
My Little Box always selects great products for their beauty section. They come with a lovely little drawstring bag and are packed nicely.
Each time one product is included from their own My Little Beauty range and this time it is a Reparing Hair Mask For Dry Ends. It is a 100ml tube (£7), which is a lot of product for me, as my hair is quite short at the moment. It contains walnut oil and shea butter, which means it is very moisturising and would give a real boost to dry and damaged hair. It should be applied from the tips and left for 2 minutes, then rinsed with cold water to seal hair cuticles.
Lip Balm Loved By Lou Lesage in an exclusively designed lip balm for Loved By. Loved By is a new sweet and chic brand that invites heart-stopping personalities to design make up and skincare products just for you! Lou Lesage, French actress and singer, described her dream red-tinted lip balm to the Loved By team who rushed to the lab in order to made it a reality. The moisturising, subtle colouring and non-drying small pot is a cute essential for the handbag! £8
The most exciting product for me is the Sabe Masson Soft Perfumes Stick in Copacabana (£15). It has a 100% natural composition base with 10% added concentration of fragrance, this perfume stick is alcohol and paraben free. It can be applied on the neck, wrists and behind the ears and is hydrating, soft, calming and suits all skin types. The stick contains tiare oil which is extracted from a Tahitian flower - ideal for replenishing skin moisture. Mine is in Copacabana, which is fresh and exotic but also a very delicate and sophisticated fragrance. I adore the packaging - it is so fashionable but also arty and has a natural, earthy look.
Every month My Little Box delivers over £65 of goodies to my doorstep and I still can't believe I pay only £11 + P&P for it. This box is like a dream!
