Themed My Little Frenchie Box, the February box celebrates the strong and independent business woman Ines de la Fressange. She is a French icon who not only was a Chanel muse in the 80s, but was also an inspiration to Karl Lagerfeld. In 1991 she created her own fashion label which consists of classic pieces found in the wardrobe of all Parisian women. Today she is head of fashion house Roger Vivier where Parisian chic is key.
As with all Little Boxes, inside the packaging there is an inspirational quote. A little confidence boost, I think you’ll agree:
The box contains this month’s magazine which is packed with interviews, photos a plenty, a guide to Paris such as the best places to shop, eat and relax and of course helpful beauty tips and make-up application. The magazine has a lot of content unlike other beauty boxes.
This month’s special gifts are a smartphone mobile case designed by Ines and a jar of small notes. Each containing a different motivational or feel good quotes or handy beauty tips, Ines shares her inspirations and elegance in the buzzward. A little morning surprise and a very cute jar to keep.
