Summer has officially arrived here in the UK. This weekend temperatures here in London reached an almighty 32oC, which is waaaay too hot! However thankfully I spent my time relaxing by our swimming pool and sunbathing. I’m pasty white so by sunbathing, I mean turning into a lobster (: The theme of this month’s My Little Box was focused on vacations, California and my favourite city LA. As soon as I saw the very adorable illustration on the box I was very excited to start unravelling this month’s contents.
The contents are as always neatly wrapped together with the MLB ribbon however this month’s one features palm trees which is very cute. The poster magazine format makes a return folding out into a hand illustrated map of Los Angeles detailing some of the go to places recommended by Fringe & Frange, for your next vacation to the States.
There are three lifestyle items this month, all of which I am absolutely loving. The first item are these incredibly cute squidgy stickers which definitely put you in the holiday mood. I’m not going to lie, I love stationary and stickers, and I’m sure secretly we all do… am I right? These are great for customising things such as journals, notebooks, photo frames and birthday cards.
The second item is this beach ready charm bracelet. Inspired by the cotton candy colours of the Californian sunset, each of the beads represents a wish for love, health and happiness. The tasseled neon finish is so on trend right now. This definitely promotes good vibes only!
The third item is this stylish canvas tote which is screen printed with palm leaves. The perfect bag for carrying your beach towel to the pool or for use at home so that you avoid paying the carrier bag charge.
The beauty item’s came in this adorable paper bag. I really like this vibe and makes a change from the little cotton bags that we’re used to seeing. Inside there were three items. The first is from Palmer’s and it is their new coconut oil body lotion. First of all it smells like holidays which immediately puts you into a good mood. Surprisingly its a cream formula however it sinks into the skin seamlessly and immediately leaves your skin feeling silky smooth.
The second item is Burt’s Bee’s Soap Bark and Chamomile deep cleansing cream. To be honest I’m not a huge fan of cream cleansers as I prefer balm/oil based products to remove my make up. This one smells citrus fresh, took my make up off well and leaves skin feeling very soft, clean and nourished.
The third item was by My Little Beauty and is their Coco Sunrise hair and body oil. This product very easily absorbs into the skin and a little goes a long way. There is no odd oil residue feeling so you can pop your clothes on immediately after application. It has a very faint coconut and passionfruit scent. The product can be used as moisturiser or as a hair mask.
I’m absolutely loving this month’s box, in particular the box design and the lifestyle items. It certainly has put me in the mood for Summer and my upcoming vacation.
