March Birchbox

First of all, I want to apologise to you all for being MIA, I have completely neglected you guys! In the next few months I have my final exams before heading out into the big world of work and I let the stress get on top of me, last week I also pulled a muscle in my back and I spent most of it moping around feeling sorry for myself and I didn’t have any inspiration about to blog. However, after a nice meal out with Tom and a good start to this week I am back in full swing!

Secondly, the dress I ordered from ASOS was just a big No-No so again, apologies for that post not appearing!

Lastly, I would like to take it all back, all of it! Everything bad I said about Birchbox in this post I want to take it all back after receiving this months Lulu Guiness inspired box. I knew when I saw the gorgeous covering on the box this was gonna be a good one, when I opened it up and saw a Benefit product, oh my, I almost cried! All the products I got this month are ones I would consider using and they were:

Benefit’s Stay Don’t Stray Primer

‘An eye Primer you can count on! Ensure eyeshadow and concealer stays put from AM and PM.’This was ‘Lulu’s Pick’ of the box, so thank you Lula! I have only heard good things about this primer and I am looking forward to try it.

Korres Citrus Body Milk

‘This hydrating lotion not only smells delish, it does your skin good too, thanks to almond oil and shea butter’ I actually got a fairly decent sized bottle of this for a sample and I’m hoping it will last me a while as I love the smell, it’s almost masculine and I have only ever had good experiences with Korres products!

Molton Brown rhubarb & Rose Replenishing Hand Cream

A fast-absorbing, repairing and deeply nourishing lotion to leave hands delectably soft and smelling sweet You know how everyone has that one item that you can always justify buying? That item for me is Hand Cream, I have more hand creams than any other product, crazy. I know. I love everything about this from the texture to the beautiful packaging.

English Laundry No. 7 For Her

Top notes of pear and jasmine blend with gardenia, vanilla and sandalwood in this delightful scent All my perfumes actually ran out recently so this is a handy little sample which means I don’t have to spend any money yet, but overall, not the best perfume I’ve ever tried.

Dr. Brandt Pores No More Pore Refiner

A favourite of photo-ready celebs, the sheer formula minimises pores and absorbs excess oil. This could not have arrived at a more convenient time as my pores look like freaking sinkholes at the moment, so hopefully this will be the kick into shape it needs!

This week I… Made Brownies

02march14

This week I had a week off work which was great as I managed to paint my nails, you can see what I was wearing on them here, I also ordered a £50 dress of ASOS which for me was a pretty radical decision, it is due to arrive next week sometime and if I can manage to convince my wonderful boyfriend to take some pictures I will do an Outfit of the Day style video for you all 🙂

This week I have not been eating too healthily as you can see from the picture, my Mum came home from work one day via Valerie’s Patisserie with these wonderful fruit tarts which were friggin’ gorgeous and today me and Tom made brownies, but I have been doing my pilates everyday so that makes up for it, right? I’m going to post the brownie recipe within the next two days because they were chewy heaven and everyone should be able to enjoy them! (You’re welcome.)

This week my little sister came home with my Mum and Dad with two adorable creatures, Phoebe (Top right) and Rose (Bottom Left) both of whom were named by Kate (said sister)! Unfortunately, a couple months ago just before christmas my sister’s rabbit Tiger-lily had a stroke and had to be put down and it broke my sisters heart but the excitement and joy on her face when she brought these two home was a touching moment.

That’s my week summarised, what have you been up to?
