Love Me Beauty Box #3 November–Edition 2

019

023

Love Me Beauty Box – November – Edition 2 - £10 (+P&P)*

A fab box again this month, Love Me Beauty can do no wrong in my books, there are four full size products this month, with two decent samples too. The Lord & Berry lipstick is a bonus item as the mascara in last months box was a little dried out, so nice of them! I wouldn’t say this is my favourite box there has been but it’s pretty decent, I look forward to using the nail polish and face mask.

If you’re new to this beauty box, there are three boxes to choose from each month each with 4-5 products in with a mix of full size and sample size things. The box costs £10 + P&P and is available any where in the UK with a letter box! It’s really nice to pick which products you receive each month as there are no nasty surprises; you get to choose. I really like this aspect of the Love Me Beauty box as it’s what has put me off other sample boxes like this, I want to make sure I’m getting my money’s worth and not being left with a box of things I don’t like.

This month we have:

Mitchell and Peach Shower Wash – (RRP £20) 50ml sample size - £4

Model’s Own Nail Polish – Prussian Blue - £5

Art Deco Hydra Lip Booster Lip Gloss – Wood Rose - £11.50

Le Soin Purifant Absolution Mask – (RRP £24) 40ml sample size - £19.20

Jelly Pong Pong 2-in-1 Eyeliner & Shadow – Bronze - £10.50

Lord & Berry Lipstick – Brick Lip - £12

Total = £62.20

 

I think you’ll agree that £10 is a fabulous price to pay for over £60 of products! I would definitely recommend Love Me Beauty, their service is always amazing and the product are always brilliant.

The Scents of Christmas Travel Candle Set is the perfect way to try out the three Christmas scents, you will receive three candles in limited edition packaging.

Life: Keeping Organised with my Filofax

Filofax Domino Red A5
Another stationery post? Surely not… I do love stationery though. When I started my new job a few weeks ago I needed a new diary as my current academic diary was full of information about students at my old place of work. I couldn’t find a suitable mid-year diary at the time so I thought I’d invest in a Filofax. I’ve tried their organisers before but only the pocket size which were just too small for me – I like a big space to write in. A5 was the only way for a work diary, I can punch A4 sheets and fold them in half and I can print documents in A5 to slip inside. I thought I’d give you a little peek inside of my Domino, and some of the pens and other stationery I use inside it.

Custom Filofax Flyleaf cute sticky notes post it notes page markers Art Box
Custom Filofax Dividers
To keep organised, and fuel my desire for cute stationery, I decided to customise the inside of my Filofax. I made some new dividers out of some super cute scrapbooking paper that I bought from TK Maxx, I still need to laminate them but I really like how the colours work together. I customised the plastic flyleaf with some sticky notes and page markers that I bought from Art Box, mentioned in my latest haul post. In the card section on the left-hand cover I store more sticky notes and page markers, alongside some paperclips. There are two pen loops on the Domino, in these I keep my favourite pens, Papermate Flexigrip Ultra in black have been my pen of choice since I was at school! They’re quite pricey but I love the way that they write so smoothly on paper. I’ve been trying out the Papermate Ink Joy 100 pens lately too, they are also fab and I love that they’re triangular shaped so easy to grip.

I also use some of the page markers and little mini fold back clips to mark important dates and deadlines in my diary, this makes it super easy to find them. It also reminds me that I have a deadline coming up that I need to be working towards as I can see them peeking out at the top of the Filofax. I use the MUJI To Do List pads to note down my daily plans as I find it useful to keep them in between the weekly pages to keep me on task. I carry these forward to the next week if I have not completed all tasks on them too.
So far this set up is keeping me organised in my new job, I like how the Filofax is so customisable and that I can easily change my style if something isn’t working very well.

The pens mentioned in this post are available from Euroffice.

How do you keep organised?

Christmas Gift Guide: Conscious Skincare

090

Conscious Skincare – Sweet Orange and Frangipani Bath Soak & Body Butter*

Conscious Skincare are a fabulous company that create handmade organic products in Wales, they also try to be as eco-friendly as possible. Sounds amazing, right? The products are packaged beautifully too, classic bottles and tins with simple modern labels – everything looks very professional and not at all ‘homemade’.

This Christmas, Conscious Skincare are offering free gift wrapping on full size products this year, this will be a cardboard tube or box embellished with ribbon. The gift wrap looks chic and elegant and saves you a job! I love the reindeer ribbon.

080

The Sweet Orange and Frangipani scent is amazing, I’ve been trying out the bath soak and body butter for a couple of weeks now and I can’t get enough of it. The bath soak makes the bath water smell divine and it feels so luxurious to bathe in, the sweet scent transfers to your skin and lingers around for a few hours after. It’s the perfect thing to clear your head after a long day, it puts me in a good mood and ready to relax for the evening.

004

The body butter has the most amazing texture, it’s like a whipped mousse that turns to an oil when rubbed into the skin. This is truly an amazing product. You only need the tiniest amount to cover your body as it changes into a luxurious oil which hydrates the skin and makes it feel divine. I use this product in the evening as it does take a while for it to fully sink into the skin but that’s a part of the joy with this product, prolonging the experience. My skin feels so soft after using this product, and the scent really lasts.

You can buy the Sweet Orange and Frangipani Bath Soak for £15.99 and the Body Butter for £18.99

Christmas Gift Guide: Anna Lou of London Initial Necklace

Anna Lou of London

Anna Lou of London Gold Initial Necklace

Anna Lou of London – Initial Necklace in Gold - £75*

How beautiful is this little necklace? A classic. I’ve wanted an initial necklace for quite some time and this dainty gold one is perfect, I love the typeface that has been used, it’s classy but not overly mature looking.

All of the Anna Lou of London necklaces are handmade too, and they have a Sterling Silver base – this gold one is plated with 18 carat gold.

I chose to get my initials, I have a necklace which has my whole name on it but I thought my initials were a bit more subtle and grown up. I’ve been wearing this necklace every day for work, layering it with another dainty gold necklace.

An Initial Necklace is the perfect Christmas gift for a loved one, I’m sure anyone that receives one as a gift will treasure it for life.
