It’s time for the December edition of My Little Box
This month saw a design that made my lack of Christmas spirit disappear and the addition of a candy cane made it that little bit sweeter (no pun intended). As usual the box came with a magazine explaining all the products and additional articles festively related.
Now for the fun bit
The first little gift in the December edition was a candle by My Little Beauty called “feu de bois – un matin d’hiver” which translates to “wood fire – a winter’s morning”. Not only does it come in the cutest little box and have a wooden lid, it smells like a woodland forest. Unfortunately the smell isn’t so powerful that it smells strong when lit but it’s still very cute.
Being a tea lover, I loved getting to try Kusmi Tea in Tsarevna. This black tea is flavoured with a blend of oranges and spices and smells and tastes like December should. If you are a lover of chai tea, then this will be something you will love to drink too. RRP for 200g: £24.50
The next little gift I got was a lovely reminder of the days I’ve had watching my grandmother in the kitchen. This sweet little jar from TipTree is filled with salted caramel spread; perfect for morning (or anytime) pancakes and waffles. I just wish they had sent me a bigger jar RRP for 210g: £2.49
The AW16 season has seen an increase in the amount of bangles on the market and this gold and red bracelet from French jeweller Lou.Yetu will add a little bit of glamour to any outfit. Bangles are great for layering so add a little extra and visit her site to see some of her other styles.
Perfume is always a tricky thing to get right, mainly because no two people will ever wear it the same way. But this little sample from French brand Courrèges in the scent hyperbole is a feminine fragrance with just a hint of a masculine edge that keeps everyone guessing. RRP for 50ml: €72
Next in the December edition was the L’Occitane Shower Oil in Almond. These products are often my go to because of the ingredients they use and the scents they have so to get a little treat from in my Little Box was a very pleasant surprise. This shower oil turns into a foam at the touch of water and leaves your skin super soft and smelling amazing. RRP for 250ml: £18
Finally in my beauty box this month was this smokey eye duo shadow palette.
With the colours “Shimmering Taupe” and “Deep Chestnut” you can take your smokey-eye to a new level.
The festive season is finally upon us but I cannot wait to see what is to come with the first beauty box of the new year.
Keep your eyes peeled
