I fell in love with the My Little Box subscription over a year ago, which is full of beauty and lifestyle surprises through the post every month. I adore unknown packages and letters that do not involve bills in this case the January 2016 My Little Box. With anticipation I open it up greeted with the sticker Happy New Dreams and Happy New Year. The box theme is My Little Wish Box, fittingly suited to the New Year.
Kanako, the artist was busy designing a dandelion being blown with the words My Little Wish Box. The edge of the box is a message from the team at My Little Box for what they wish upon 2016 for all their subscribers. Well thought out!
I have my fingers crossed that they stuck to the glossy magazine rather than the fold out paper poster magazine. A smile appears – its back to original form of glossiness. Skimming through, it’s all about the reader’s wishes Instagram hashtags. An excerpt from Big Magic, Elizabeth Gilbert I found inspiring was “I wanted to meet people, and to hear their stories. Writers are told to write what they know and all I knew was that I didn’t know very much”. A printed card with the quotation from Walt Disney “All our dreams can come true, if you have the courage to pursue them”. I love these cards and have been saving them all. Not sure yet what I’ll do with them. Any ideas?
Going with the mint theme is a mint A5 diary which I will definitely use. In the drawstring bag (I have collected these as they are so handy) is 3 necessary items. Melted Fuchsia lipstick in a tube – liquefied long wear lipstick. I will let you know how many hours this last. A My Little Beauty (their own brand) of lip balm in the shape of lip stick. Ren clean skincare presents a kind to skin formula of cleansing water to cleanse, remove makeup and tone. These are all small hand size items which is always convenient for me in case I need to bring them anywhere.
The final gift was a range of message bracelets in the form of a ribbon. You can tear off the cards and give to anyone! I gave one to Louella and she loved it.
I love this box and it’ll be added to my organised boxes!
