For the last few months I've not been as excited receiving my monthly My Little Box as I'm sure you noticed in last months post. All of that changed when I received this month's box. I was expecting a Christmas themed box with it being December and all but when I opened it, I was pleasantly surprised.... And by pleasantly surprised I mean I freaked out at how good it was.
The first thing I saw when I opened the box is that they'd gone back to the old style magazine e which I loved! So much more content and the pages turn so it's easier to read than a fold out paper version!
Then came the mittens. Yes, I said mittens. Adorable dark coloured mittens with a hint of shimmer. These are a perfect fit and just great for those cold winter evenings and you can even fold back the finger cover so you can have a play about on your phone without having to take them off. I love them, they're so so so cute! I'll definitely get to much use out if these!
Next, I noticed the loose leaf tea. On opening the box the smell hit me like a wave of Christmas and winter. It was amazing. Owain was talking about buying a spot for loose leaf tea and this would be perfect to unwind with at the end of a cold dark day. The tin is adorable and when all the tea is gone, this will be kept as a decoration. I'm weird like that.
The beauty products were by far my favourite this month. A body lotion which meals of orange and cedar wood and makes me feel so Christmassy and happy. I've become quite obsessed with body lotion recently due to the colder weather and so I'm sure I'll go through this pretty quickly. The nail polish is super pretty and matches the mittens - a dark blue colour and a gold glitter which I have been wearing all week! When I think of Christmas nails I usually think of reds and silver but gold and blue is a very welcome change. Plus these can be used all year round without feeling too Christmassy. Finally, the Too Faced melted lip stick. The colour is the same as the packaging on the photo and boy does it last long. There's no chance of it coming off at your Christmas party so kiss all the work colleagues you want ;).
What's even better is the beauty products came in a super cute make up bag which I can't get enough of. I'm always on the lookout for a new make up bag so this is a massive bonus! I have so many of the bags they usually come in and this will be so useful when I go to my parents at Christmas!
I'm super impressed with this box and I cannot wait to see what's in January's box. To think I almost cancelled my subscription, I think I'll stick it out to see what's to come in the new year. Here's hoping it continues to impress me.
What did you think to it?
