A stylish, fashionable figure with a gorgeous flowy print skirt in the setting of Italy is the illustration on the box. What stands out is ‘Dolce Vita’ – translated to Sweet Life. My Little Box has travelled to another realm – Italy! Mint, peach and yellow is the colour palette used which is also transferred to all the products inside the box. I have to say upon opening the box, my nose tingles with delight at the scent of something sweet.
Kanako’s artwork reappears in this box edition, with stilettos, gelato, coffee and ‘Everything sounds better in Italian.’ To me however any foreign language sounds better – even sexy.
I’m reminiscing about Rome many years ago, as ‘Rome is on my mind’ appears on a box with a peekaboo hole. It’s a turquoise, mint, yellow and pale pink turban! Looks very pretty but hope it’s a good size that fits my head. Headbands can be a bit tight for me. (Must have a big head!). At the back of the box in the magazine, there are instructions on different ways to wear the fashion accessory.
A miniscule box with ‘Ciao Bella’ which interpreted means hello beautiful, (Oh, feeling so special now) lyes a little gold ring. It’s leafy, adjustable and fits my finger! (Hurrah). Not much of a jewellery fan but can see me wearing this J
Now, the beauty products. In a vial is Courreges perfume of orange blossom. It’s fresh and spicy and will replace one of my perfume sticks as that is coming to an end. My Little Beauty presents a bronzing BB cream for the legs. I hope it does give a little of sunkiss colour rather than looking orange. I don’t use tanning products but a little won’t hurt as my legs are pastier than my face. (Not to mention I have a natural teeny tiny tan). Then there’s the green tea jasmine body oil by Baija. Oil for the body compliments my skin – again another product I can’t wait to use. None of these products would be something I initially buy, so really glad My Little Box is introducing new beauty products.
Just loving this May box!
