Me and my new best friend.... TWBC
Posted on 8:53am Monday 9th Aug 2010
Dashing out the door i meet the postman, baby in one hand and brown parcel in the other i scribble a quick signature.
I teared open the brown parcel (with a little help from my little boy) to reveal an amazingly simple crisp white box with a slight gloss, a pretty black ribbon in a simple knot and a simple tag with love TWBC.
My peek inside just could stop there!! I couldn't even stop to read the letter inside...sorry TWBC....but i promise i did return to read it all later!
As i peeled back the mask of black tissue i was in every girls dream a colourful exciting extravaganza of beady products, hair accessories, jewellery....I just couldn't wait to dig in, but i had to I was running seriously late!
So as i set off to to my list of chores i just couldn't stop thinking about my little white box at home!!
I wont keep you waiting any longer, lets delve inside and experience the magic!!
First think to hit me was the amazing smell. As soon as i opened the box it leaped out at me...
I had to do a little sniffing but it didn't take me long to find Melvita's little bottle of joy; Micellar Water. I have to admit when it comes to skincare i am one of the lazy ones but when i tried this out, wow, It gives your skin an amazing feeling of hydration and makes your daily routine actually worth doing! You might just see my name cropping up on your orders soon...will make the most out of my little first though! Check them out www.melvita.com
After this i had to admit i whizzed through the others to see what was inside and went back to give everything a proper look. In the excitement I didn't really make a mental note of the order so forgive me!
Arbonne had kindly included a very generous pot of eye cream. When it comes to cream I am all smell and texture so i dig in! Although the cream doesn't offer one of those smells that makes you want to eat it, it has a strongly comforting smell which draws you in a very natural smell which brings fresh white cotton to mind. The texture is thick and glossy, very rich!
My next find was the pretty hair clip by linziclip. I'm a big lover of red so this was perfect and has found its way into my handbag and is going everywhere with me! Ideal gift...sorry i have Christmas on the mind!! Check the website they have cute little ones too www.linshell.co.uk
Catching my eye i pulled out a bright stripped bag and poured a beautiful bird into my hand along with a pretty pink hair clip with diamante detail. I have really dark hair so this pink clip was a gorgeous contrast wearing this to work got me so many comments, so hopefully www.funkyjunkjewellery.com should get some orders soon.
I then came across my Eyeko Grafitti Pen, my favorite item so far! I love this pen, its amazing, simple to use and gives the look i have always....yes always wanted but could never achieve with other pens i have used. So Eyeko you have one extra customer and lots more if i get my way....girls seriously try out this pen its amazing!! www.eyeko.com
To follow on from the pen i jut had to try out the mascara. This was lovely to apply with the soft brush, looks amazing on and was even better to take off. I think i might just be converted to this mascara too. I made my way through the leaflet only to discover there is a whole collection of amazing products, I have a feeling the leaflet may have made its way to my mums too!! Check them out ladies www.greenpeople.co.uk
Now I'm not one for lipstick but i though for the purpose of giving my white box the attention it deserves i pulled out some lush lipstick and tried The Original Lipstick Sealer. Now i have never used on of these before and i was surprised, It actually worked. I always had this suspicion that they might not do exactly what they say but Lipcote, i stand corrected.
Next on my list was the Metique sachets. I love Tea Tree Oil ever since i had my belly button pierces all those years ago. They are amazing little sachets. I confess i am yet to make my way through them all but I highly recommend the Skin Wash and the After Wax Lotion. Try them out! www.teatreeoilproducts.co.uk
Suddenly peeking back at me a beautiful hair clip by www.prettybykitty.etsy.com I might have mentioned this a few times before but i love red, so this pretty little hair clip is just so unique and eye catching. Haven't quite got round to checking out the whole shop but will be making my way over there as soon as i have finished typing!!
Last but certainly not least, a pretty little card was looking back at me. www.littleprettything.co.uk offering chocolates personalised gifts and wedding favours. All i can say is good job I'm getting married next year and will have chance to try them all out!!
A sweet finish to my TWBC experience!
