My Little Box August 2016

*My Little Box  is a monthly subscription box that costs £15.95 per month and, like other subscription boxes, arrives to your door. However, unlike most of the beauty boxes My Little Box also includes some non-beauty yet beautiful bits and pieces, which is why it’s so special to me. 

20160809-_DSC0906I’m always really excited to get my hands on My Little Box boxes, as these are one of my all time favourites. When I realised that the theme was Friends my Friends TV show inner fangirl had many theories of what could be inside, none of them were true of course as this was about the ‘real world’ friends…pfft. Shame! Maybe next time? In the meantime, you can check out previous unboxings here. Looksy at how pretty this is:20160809-_DSC0924

Also, can we appreciate the awesome bags the goodies come in? I keep all of them.

THE BAD

In the territory of Give me my Cash-monies back Momos (from 1 to 5, 5 being the worst)

Nada.

THE MEH

The category where Zeus and Momo have a party and don’t really have any strong opinions about anything else.

Nope.

THE GOOD

Anything from 2 to 4 Very Curiously Supportive Zeuses

20160809-_DSC0926First thing that caught my eye was this adorable little Nail Kit (£7.5) by My Little Box. Look at it! It’s so cushioned too, it’s just perfect for travelling or keeping in your bag at all times. I’m so clueless, can someone explain me what those two metal tools are for (this is from the series ‘What you have always wondered but were too afraid to ask: young adults edition’), you know the ones on the right for both sides. They sort of look like miniature torture tools if you ask me. Definitely at least 4 Zeuses, because I do find myself in need of some filling more than I should!

20160809-_DSC0934Mini (75ml) version of Batiste Hairspray (full size is £4.49, so this is £0.84). I’m not going to say that Batiste is my favourite brand for hairspray, but they are not bad either. Hairspray is something people actually use and so this is always helpful. I would rather have lots of small different brand bottles than the one giant hairspray that you get bored of in 2 weeks but there’s no reason to replace it. Solid 3 Zeuses.

20160809-_DSC0942You’d be surprised how heavy and sturdy this, of what I can only assume is a tinted lip balm, Summer Lips from My Little Box (£12) is. It feels great on your lips, definitely moisturises and leaves just enough tint of colour too. Sadly the shade is not very flattering on me, it’s very much a strawberry red and that doesn’t look great on the face that battles redness every damn day. But I will still use it, I think this is a great product and it feels very secure option for those of us that drop our bag whenever you arrive at your destination. It would probably survive anything, it’s so well made. Plus it’s adorable, it has flamingos on it, I mean c’mon.  However due to bad luck with the shade I can only give this 3 Zeuses.

20160809-_DSC0923.jpgA little pack of Sweet & Salted ProperCorn popcorn (£1) is always a welcome addition. If you don’t like Sweet & Salted popcorn, I am sorry but you need sort your shit together and live a little. 4 Zeuses, even though this lasted like 10 minutes after this photo was taken.

20160809-_DSC0928I usually don’t like face creams in my boxes, but when it comes in a full size of 40ml and contains Yellow (what other kinds are there?) Banana & Mango butters I am not going to say not to that. This is Hydramuse from Kadalys and this size costs £15.66. There’s also a code (mylittlebox) to use on their website, but I have so many samples of moisturisers I don’t think I’ll need to buy it myself anytime soon, plus it’s half in french so I’ll pass. I will use this up though, 4 Zeuses.

THE BEST

My top pick from the box: 4 or 5 Very Curiously Supportive Zeuses

20160809-_DSC0938How exciting and well presented is this? It’s a small Fish Eye lens for your phone camera from My Little Box (£12). While completely unnecessary and a little bit useless this brought me joy and was quite fun to use, isn’t that the point then? It’s the fun things that really count. It even has it’s own little pouch to carry it about. There’s just something adorable about things in smaller sizes (that’s not what she said though haha). Here’s a few photos just so you can see what it looks like through your phone.

VERDICT

 

really enjoyed it. The fish eye lens added something different and made the box stand out from the other ones. It wasn’t an amazing box but, as the categorisation suggests, most of the items were good. The overall value is £49 which is great for what you pay, and everything is just so darn cute. I will use basically all of the items and that’s one of the main things I look for in a good box really. So yay! However I have to admit I don’t think the theme was reflected at all, if not for the box cover I would have forgotten about it whatsoever! Even so, I can’t wait till the next one.

I believe the box was:

WHY, NO, STAPH!

REALLY POOR

MEH

SETTLING ON PASSABLE

ABOVE AVERAGE 

REALLY ENJOYABLE

AWESOME

PERFECTION IN A BOX

Hey there! Welcome to my Everything Blog. You know those lovely organised people who have a niche? Well that's not me, my blog is just like my mind, jumping from one thought to another. Sorry (but not too sorry). I have a degree in Psychology and am a proud owner of two amazing kittens Zeus and Momo, although thoroughly a dog person! I love cooking, I surely love eating, reading and exploring. I have created this blog with hope that I can lighten up the mid-week Wednesday with some Saturday chill vibes. Hopefully you enjoy your Saturdays On Wednesdays as much as I enjoy mine. With Love, G xoxo

  1. I’ve always loved seeing what’s in the My Little Boxes, they are usually so good. I’d love a fish eye lens for my phone, it would bring iPhone pictures to a whole new level! Also, did you change your blog name? I like it!!

    1. I think they always deliver regarding the cuteness, you can see that they put a lot of thought into packaging and I love that. Sometimes even if the products are not that great it can trick you into thinking they are!
      I didn’t really change the name, it’s just a bit silly 😀 Basically, I needed the tagline to appear under my header, but if you want the tagline to appear there’s also a Blog tittle box. You can leave it blank, but if you do then when people follow you it says ‘so and so followed your blog ‘Untitled’, then if I did title it Saturday On Wednesday it would appear under my header that already says so. So I just named it for what it is, the everything blog haha Sorry long story, I know, but it’s just one of those things that you wish you had more control over but you don’t haha xxx
