My Little Box – April 2015

My Little Box – April 2015

I received my first My Little Box last month, and despite being a little bit disappointed with the beauty products inside I was very excited to see what April’s box would bring. It didn’t disappoint! The theme of the April box is ‘My Little Dreambox’ and they’ve fulfilled the theme so well. If you’re never heard of My Little Box it’s a quirky monthly beauty box that offers something a bit different, including their own range of make-up ‘My Little Beauty’, a proper readable mini magazine in each box, plus exciting little non-beauty extras – past examples have included stickers, stationery and T-shirts. So, what was inside My Little Dreambox in April….? One of my favourite items in the April box was this traditional style stamp and ink pad. The stamp has phrases in both French and English such as ‘Made With Love’ and ‘Avec Plaisir’ and it’s just so cute! I’ve already used it to stamp some stars onto some handmade business cards and I can see it coming...

Dream of Silver – Handcrafted Silver Jewellery

Dream of Silver – Handcrafted Silver Jewellery

When I’m not writing my Beauty Best Friend blog my other job is designing and making handcrafted silver jewellery, and running my business Dream of Silver.

Two years later I left my corporate job in financial marketing to run Dream of Silver full time. Every day is different for me – some days I’m designing new products, some days I’m making up orders and some days I’m doing paperwork or updating my Dream of Silver website. My ideas for new products often spring into my mind when I’m least expecting it, usually when I’m trying to get to sleep and then I have to spring up and make...

W7 – Lipstick in Coral Dream

W7 – Lipstick in Coral Dream

I usually stick to the same pinky and nude colours of lipstick, but I’ve been thinking about trying a coral shade for a while now. So when I saw this Coral Dream Lipstick from budget brand W7 for sale on Amazon I decided to try it. I wasn’t too sure if a coral lip shade would suit me, so I didn’t want to spend too much money on my first one. First thing’s first… while there are some great budget make-up brands out there (I’m thinking MUA, e.l.f., Rimmel, etc) I can’t really say that W7 is one of them. The packaging is of really low quality, the lid of the bullet tube is really stiff and the sticker on the bottom of the tube showing the ‘Coral Dream’ shade name looks really cheap. I don’t think that the orangey plastic tube looks very good quality either and I find that the lid is quite difficult to take off. However, what I do love about this W7 lipstick is...
