My Little Box - June

My best friend Kim got me an amazing birthday present this year of the My Little Box subscription for 3 months. Such a thoughtful gift as I do love my subscription boxes and it’s a surprise for both of us when it arrives. This month’s theme was a summer vibes edition and the box contained lots of items ideal for summer which I will go into further detail with below. I am really happy with this box, it comes with a monthly magazine too which isn’t something that comes with any other boxes I have had in the past and I found it really helpful. Anyway – onto what I received.

The first item was this bikini pouch which was filled with some of the other goodies I received. It took me a second or two to realise what this pouch was for and it’s not a product I’ve ever considered before but I think this pouch is genius. You can use this pouch to store your bikini in, so if you’re jetting off on holiday then this is great. I did think it was a bit small at first, especially for my swimwear as it’s probably larger than average but I needn’t have worried as it fits in there fine. Wet or dry, keep your bikini separated from your other belongings. I just wish I had a holiday planned as an excuse to use this!

The next item was this salt spray for your hair which is  perfect for creating beach waves and smells gorgeous. The scent reminds me of vanilla and is perfect for the summer. My hair is naturally wavy and using this spray gave it a more structured look and kept my hair tame but at the same time gave me beautiful beach waves. I think I will be using this a lot this summer.

I said a moment ago how pleased I was to see a little magazine in the box as other boxes I get don’t come with one and it’s nice to have a bit of a read. The magazine theme is also summer vibes and is filled with tips and tricks. There are even pages on how to use some of the products in the box and pages on this year’s hottest festivals. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this little magazine and every page had something informative on it.

We then received this little ciate mini nail varnish in the shade chinchilla which is a pale blue colour. This shade reminds me of the ocean and is the perfect pastel shade for the summer. I have had ciate nail varnishes in the past so I know they are reliable and I will be painting my nails with this for the weekend!

This little Kusmi Iced Tea package was a nice surprise as I am a great lover of teas. The monthly my little world magazine even had a little recipe inside on how to create the perfect iced tea! At £11 for 10 sachets, this is quite expensive but nice for a treat now and again.

When I saw there was an item of clothing in the box I thought “oh no, this is never going to fit me” but I was pleasantly surprised. Kim wore hers to a blogger event we attended recently and it looked great, loosely fitting and just the right length. On me, it is a bit more fitted but still nice all the same. I have enjoyed wearing this on sunnier days when sitting in the garden and I love the fun summer slogan on the front.

The final item I received was this too faced glitter glue which is something I have needed so many times! I love wearing glitter at Christmas but by the end of the night it ends up halfway down my face. I can’t wait to try this out for festive looks but seems a shame I have to wait months to use it! I read over on Kim’s review that she has been using this as a primer so I might have to give that a go in the meantime!

Thank you again Kim for this lovely gift! Have you ever received My Little Box? What do you think? I can't wait for the next one!
