What's In My May 2013 Glossybox?

It really feels like it's only been a few days since I did my post about the April Glossybox. This month's box was to celebrate Glossybox's 2nd birthday. I wish they wouldn't mention stuff like that because I think it makes most people think they're going to receive thousands of pounds worth of products in this month's box. I've seen numerous people commenting on how 'it should be better for a birthday box'. Personally I thought this month's box was quite good. Here's what I got...

What's In My April 2013 Glossybox?

Firstly, if this post seems somewhat half-arsed, I apologise. This box is the 'I don't even care' box. Every month I'm normally really excited for my Glossybox and this month I wasn't any different. My payment went out early in the month and I thought my Glossybox would be dispatched a week or so after. Wrong. This box felt like it took forever to get to me. Normally I'm not an impatient person but the wait was made worse by seeing that the more popular bloggers had already received their's. My excitement dwindled as I was basically waiting for a box which I could guess half the contents of. I understand Glossybox sending the boxes out to popular bloggers, if it's a good box more people will be likely to buy in, it's just irritating that they send them a week or so before the others. I know the sooner they send them, the more chance they have of people buying that month's Glossybox but if they just sent them all out at a similar time early in the month they'd still have a large window where people could purchase the box and they'd receive less of the grumpy comments. It doesn't take a marketing genius to work that out. Anyway, here's what I got...

Wishlist - Confessions of a Candle Hoarder...

I've found myself wandering around shops and browsing the internet a lot lately and thinking 'I want that'. Unfortunately my money is limited and so here is a list of things I'm lusting after lately. The things that I want but I can't fully justify buying... Yet.

Date Day! A Trip to the Aquarium.

So my boyfriend and I always vowed to keep going on dates, no matter how long we'd been together. Neither of us wanted to turn into the couple that just lazes around watching TV all day, every day. To us, that's a guaranteed way of making a relationship go stale. We're in a distance relationship so we try to do at least one 'date day' when we see each other. This time we decided to go to the aquarium. My boyfriend had picked up a couple of 2 for 1 vouchers when he was in Subway of all places, they were greatly appreciated as the Sea Life Centre in Birmingham is quite expensive (£19 each!). I felt that a blog post on our date day might be interesting to some, so here's what we got up to!

What's In My March 2013 Glossybox?

It only seems like 5 minutes since I wrote the last Glossybox post! I was quite surprised when it turned up this morning as there was no dispatch email and it usually doesn't come until mid-month. This was the first time in ages that I'd actually been around when it got delivered so I was really excited, I opened it and here is what I discovered!

Bargain Hunting - Mini Haul (MAC, Philosophy, Topshop and more)

I keep forgetting to take a main picture for my haul posts, oops. Anyway this is a bunch of stuff I got a couple of weeks ago, mostly for a fraction of the RRP. I didn't actually go out with the intention of buying anything but these things caught my eye, there's not too much here but I really wanted to write about a couple of things so here we go.

What's In My February 2013 Glossybox?

So this month's Glossybox took on an obvious Valentines theme. The box itself (which I forgot to take a picture of) was extremely pretty this month with a cute pink bow on the box, rather than the normal plain Glossybox emblem. The inside was fuchsia with pink paper. When I picked it up it felt heavy, this was promising. Needless to say when I lifted the lid I was not disappointed, here's what I got...
