My Little Box: From France With Love

 With the subscription box market getting increasingly crowded, it's always nice when something special comes along. That's where My Little Box comes in.
'My Little Box aims to delight and surprise you every month.'
 When I received my first box, it came in the mid-month slump where your bank balance isn't something you want to look at and you need a little pick me up. This is what awaited me:

Each monthly box is themed, with the March box a superhero theme. Unlike other subscription boxes the products are usually full size and include in house beauty and skincare products with super cute packaging. So far I've had gifts like t-shirts, bracelets, a stamp kit and even a set of dress-up doll fridge magnets! Design wise, the gifts inside are beautifully packaged, coming wrapped in printed fabric pouches, tissue paper and ribbons. The boxes have always have adorable illustrations on them and a little 'zine' inside with a description of the products, interviews and articles.
April's box was 'My Little Dream Box' with whimsical inspired gifts and May's was 'My Little Provence Box' with an array of presents from the south of France, including a travel size L'Occitane set! 
For just £14.95 a month you can have all of these lovelies delivered to your door.
I'd confidently say it's the best subscription box out there!

No.7 Spring Beauty Buys

Payday means one important thing for me, a trip to Boots to get my hands on whatever hair, face, bath and body treats I fancy. Old favourites and new, exciting product launches are what ends up in my basket usually, this time it was No.7. I decided to take advantage of the Free Pink Blossom gift box that you get free when you buy 2 or more No.7 products this Spring, I mean who wouldn't?

So here's what I treated myself to this month...

No.7 BB Lips and No.7 Pop & Glow Creme Blush

Firstly, the blush. A creme blusher in a stick that twists up for easy application. The shade I took a shine too is Mango Sorbet, as I don't currently own a coral coloured blush. Needless to say the formula is beautifully lightweight and silky, it blends easily but I would recommend applying to dewy skin for an even easier blend. 

 As pictured above, I applied a decent sized stripe up from the apples of my cheeks, along the cheekbone and smaller towards the hairline. Blend in with fingers for a more professional finish. Available in 3 colours, Pop & Glow creme blush sticks are only £9.95 each.

The next item on the menu was BB Lips, a relatively new product from No.7. Although slightly milking the BB/CC/EE cow, these nourishing glosses are perfect for spring, with added SPF15. There are 6 shades to choose from and at £9.00 each they're nothing less than the perfect handbag staple.

Shop the No.7 Beauty range at now.

Lady Gaga for Versace Spring/Summer 2014

Just what all little monsters have been waiting for, Gaga to appear in a fashion editorial! Well, it's here and it's beautiful; Lady Gaga will front the campaign for Versace next season.

The styling of these images is what I find stunning, the way she has not only captured the essence of the Versace brand she also oozes everything Donatella, and not surprisingly with one of the tracks on her latest album 'ARTPOP' taking the name of the Italian high fashion priestess.

Here's what Donatella herself had to say about the collaboration:
“I am honoured that my friend Lady Gaga is the face of our new Versace campaign. I wanted to capture her true beauty and spirit in images that are elegant and alluring. She is like family to me, the embodiment of the Versace DNA.”
