My Little Fresh Start Box

This month’s My Little Box, or should I say bag was an interesting one to say the least. Based on having a fresh start for the new year, our goodies came in a handy linen bag rather than the usual box. I actually quite liked the bag idea as I was starting to rack up a fair few boxes and wasn’t sure what to do with them – if you have any ideas, please let me know in the comment box! The bag was packed with lots of goodies for the new year. The only disappointment for me is that they have stopped the magazine. I know a lot of people weren’t too fussed about this but I really enjoyed having the booklet and I think it was one of the factors that set this box apart from others I have tried in the past. Anyway, not much can be done about that so I better get on with the review.

I was really happy to see this Timeless Planner in the box and couldn’t wait to start writing in it. The pages are set out in weeks without dates so I could pick this up and start it regardless of whether it was the 1st January. Each week has a space to add your thoughts, feelings and dreams. Some pages have space for goals and aspirations and other pages ask questions such as "if money didn't matter, what job would you do?" I think it’s a lovely idea to prompt you to write things down and will be nice to look back on.

This is the time of year for cracked hands and elbows so the My Little Beauty Sweet Hand Cream was a welcomed addition to this box. The texture is described as being like a marshmallow, which I can agree. It does look a bit like a melted marshmallow when squeezed from the tube. The cream is smooth and does not leave a greasy residue. It leaves my hands feeling smooth and has a nice scent.

We received two My Little Beauty items this month, the other one being this Boost Yourself Energising Body Cream - perfect for that fresh start. This cream is 98.5% natural and contains Sunflower Oil and Ginger for the perfect boost. The product has a slightly fruity scent and soaks into the skin without leaving any stickiness which is what I prefer with body creams.

This Merci Handi toothpaste, retailing at €4 is the perfect travel companion. I will be taking this on holiday with me. This Holy Mint flavour is super refreshing and very minty. The ingredients are 98% natural and I love using this.

This small sample of Garnier Ultimate Blends Intense Hair Treatment in Honey Treasures was a nice little addition to this month’s box. The conditioning treatment contains Propolis, Royal Jelly and Honey. It has a sweet scent and left my hair feeling lovely and soft. It nourishes dry and damaged hair and would potentially be something I would repurchase if I wanted to treat myself.

My favourite item this month was the snood. Anyone that knows me well knows that I live and breathe in my thick woollen snood from Powder Scarves and it’s great for winter but I needed something new for the transitioning weather. This timeless wardrobe staple is comfortable and lightweight and great for all seasons. I am a big fan of the navy colour, it goes with most of my outfits and the other flecks of colour make it look a bit more interesting. Needless to say I have been wearing this for work and I think it looks smarter than my thick woollen one.

We also received some Fresh Start Notecards with 5 ideas to kick start 2017. They’re motivating and fun to read, it has certainly given me a few ideas to help to have a fantastic year.

Overall this month’s box has been a good one and I think all of the items tie in well with the general overall theme of the box. Although I am still slightly gutted about the lack of magazine I think that the contents made up for it and I look forward to seeing what next month’s box has to offer.
