It’s that time of the month again when a little box of French loveliness falls through my letterbox…this month the theme was travel.
First out of the box was a lovely little print – I am getting quite a collection of these now and need to find somewhere to put them! Next out was this interesting box…
Inside it was a useful little travel wallet. A bit plastic-y, but very cute.
Continuing the travel theme, there was also a special little notebook and pen by Bic. The notebook is designed to be written in, and then posted off instead of a postcard. The pen is a new two-in-one biro and stylus – perfect for writing your postcard one minute, and using as a stylus on your phone screen the next. Great for when you have sticky sun-creamy fingers I suppose! I may pass it on to the boys to use on drawing apps on the iPad.
Seeing what’s inside the little drawstring bag is always my favourite bit!
I was particularly pleased to find some Essie nail varnish in a lovely orange shade. I’ve never had any before, so I can’t wait to try it (when I can be bothered to get the nail varnish remover out…I’m so lazy).
Also lovely was the tube of Summer Sorbet. It’s an after-sun cream which has an instant cooling effect. It’s very nice, although the smell reminds me of those weird ‘Cupcake Dolls’ I remember people having when I was a child. Which lessens the sophistication somewhat.
There was also a bottle of ‘Wonder Water’- otherwise known as Micellar cleansing water. It’s supposed to be a gentle, soothing way to remove make-up. It has reached my radar before now, but I’ve never been tempted to use it as I’m a bit fussy/anal about not deviating from my normal skincare routine. I don’t really wear much make-up in the summer, but I will try this next time I wear some mascara. James read the ingredients and says it’s basically watered-down liquid soap – but don’t let that put you off! This will probably be the one thing I give away…
Last out was a slightly random packet of gold temporary tattoos. Applying them will keep me and the boys amused for about 3 minutes of the summer holidays! Maybe we’ll get the ukulele out and have a pretend festival in the Fens.
