Latest In Beauty: Dream Box 3.


I love the whole idea of the beauty boxes but I don't like the monthly subscriptions not knowing what my money is going on. I feel like I would be disappointed and don't want to waste money. Last year I discovered Latest In Beauty and their fabulous boxes. They are a bit more pricey and it varies but you get a lot more content and it isn't regular subscription - you simple pick when you want if you like.

Last year I grabbed British Beauty Blogger Dream Box, I'm not sure if it was the first or second one - read it here. But I was so overly impressed, everything was so good and I found my new favourite ever mascara the Too Faced Better Than Sex and Benefit It's Potent Eye Cream! Both which are now in my daily routine. I saw the third edition of the box was out a little while ago, and I made sure I grabbed one as they always sell out so quickly. So here is a look at what was inside:

**I apologise for the bad quality photos - I wasn't feeling very well yesterday so photos suffered from this :(**

Jane, the mastermind behind these dream boxes because of her amazing blog British Beauty Blogger. She is incredibly knowledge of all things beauty and you can tell she puts a lot of effort into choosing only products she would recommend and use herself. The box is supplied with 16 goodies, some full or sample size, some products the colours may vary for each box. The box then also comes with a leaflet explaining each product along with some offers for the companies too. It cost £21.95 altogether with free delivery. You can read more about the box here

Makeup is more my thing than skincare but I am really looking forward to test out everything especially the teal eye liner and a lip balm with moroccan oil sounds really interesting!! Will be trying out the gold temporary tattoos on my next night out, something fun and different to play around with :) 

Thank you Jane for yet another fantastic box! 

I don't get to try out new products very often as money is limited, I rather stick to what I know and like. That's why these boxes are so great as I get different brands that I would never of thought of before, all for such a great price. I actually have another review coming next week on the Latest In Beauty Party In Prep Box.

Silent Sunday #36


I don't usually write along with Silent Sunday posts but it has been exactly 3 years today since one of the most important people ever to me passed away in her sleep. It doesn't get easier with time and no matter how much I try to hold on the memories, they have begun to fade. This is the only picture I have of Corey and my nan. One I will always have with me. Excuse the bad quality picture, it was taken 3.5 years ago at Corey's Naming Day (christening)! I won't say anything more as I am turning into a blubbering mess but I would do anything for just one more hug!

Family Portrait #1


A lovely fellow blogger Nicola from Life Through My Eyes has started a great new linky called Mummy & Me :) The reasoning for this is because Nicola like myself and many others are always taking photos of our children but rarely of us with them. Another great linky very similar to this is called Me & Mine - a family portrait linky run by Lucy at Dear Beautiful. So this is a great way to treasure those special moments and a place to put monthly. I've always wanted to join in and finally starting so come back at the end of each month to see what photo is next :)

Part of the Me & Mine linky is that you share what not only I but Corey have been loving this month so not sure if I can think of much, but will give it ago.

*Mummy Loves*
Booked a girls birthday weekend away
All the beautiful morning sunshine
Finally getting better at learning to drive

*Corey Loves*
Went on first ever school trip
Being able to write his name and mine
Memorised the ipad passcode!
Learning about Easter

An absolutely massive part of this month that was both Corey and my favourite, was Corey's first ever holiday abroad to Fuerteventura. It was amazing and beyond better than I could have ever imagined. It will be one of those trips I treasure forever. I wrote all about it here if you wish to have a look :)

So here it is, finally my monthly family portrait that I am using for this month :) This picture has been used before on my blog, it was from Mother's Day earlier this month which you can read about here. Obviously another massive part of this month. This picture really captures our personality and is now one of my favourite photos of us!

Hope you enjoy this new feature on the blog, lots of new bits coming soon too :)

Love, Gemma xo
