Hotly anticipated and much coveted the amazing Beauty And The Beast beauty box from Latest In Beauty is here! When I received my delivery I couldn’t wait to see what was inside as the buzz on social media had whipped us all into a frenzy. With such a perfect collaboration between Disney and the Latest In Beauty team it could only mean one thing – a duo of fantastic boxes which as they are limited edition won’t be around for long. With their collaboration two boxes were created one for the ‘Belles‘ and one for the ‘Beasts‘ and both make equally great gifts (or gift to self!) and are really great prices too at £20.00 each. When I heard of the collaboration I did expect a higher price so I was really pleasantly surprised to see both at such an affordable price. Even the boxes that all the goodies come in are gorgeous and collectable (see photo’s below) and with the launch of the epic movie released on the 17th (tomorrow in the UK) March what better way to get in the mood than to treat yourself to a ‘Belle’ box.

It’s safe to say that in my quest to find the ‘perfect’ perfume I have amassed a huge array of bottles. Some I love and use regularly but others (usually an impulse buy) sit unused for months.  Would I have bought them if I could have had a months supply instead to really test them out? Well, probably not. Secret Scent Box I feel have identified this need and for £15.00 per month you can subscribe and receive three new scents to sample and the beauty is each will last a month to really get a feel if it is right to go ahead and buy the full sized perfume. You can either subscribe to a female or male trio of scents to be delivered each month and unlike so many beauty boxes this is letterbox friendly and will fit through easily – so no waiting in for parcels!

It’s that time of year where the whole family helps me get the house ‘Christmas ready’ and this means cleaning and tidying ready for family and friends to come and celebrate with a drink or two. One machine that is going to help me this festive season is the Vax Dual power Pro Advance to clean the carpets and one of the benefits of this nifty machine is that it has an integrated feature to dry your carpets as you clean. It’s a big job to undertake and cleaning the carpets in the house takes time and effort, what I found with this machine from Vax is that it was a lot quicker than I expected and I was really glad to find the unit was much lighter that I thought too as well as easy to use.

Our youngest daughter has quite a collection of soft toys but by far her favourite and one of her very first toys is a tiny (and a little worse for wear!) stuffed cow. ‘Moo’ is small enough to take everywhere with her and is dinky enough that sometimes it ends up getting lost (usually in the living room) and we all end up searching for it as she can’t sleep without it. If your child has one of these precious toys, or a special blanket perhaps you will understand just how important it can be to make sure you have it somewhere safe every day to avoid that dreaded search just before bedtime! When we were given the opportunity to review a framed photo from My Oldest Friend  it was easy to choose which special toy to include in the ‘photo-shoot’, as ‘Moo’ really is her favourite little toy and if you take a look at the website you can see the various different sizes and types of toys that the fabulous team have captured so well.

I have been sharing some ideas for Christmas gifts this week – see my Christmas Gift Ideas here, and with the big day looming I have some more inspiration today to treat your loved ones (or yourself!) and with so many sales on at the moment it’s the perfect time to get organised.  This week my youngest has spent so much time perfecting and writing her Christmas cards for her school friends it’s spurred me on to get Christmas ready!
