I thought I would do something a little bit different and bring a little bit of beauty into the blog for a change….
I was a very lucky girl at the end of last year when I received a belated birthday gift from my Brother-in-Law & Sister-in-Law, a 6 month subscription to BirchBox UK. I have to say, that they clearly know me very well (well, I have been married to their brother for nearly 10 years now), and they were spot on with this gift…. I flippin’ loved it! Anything fashion or beauty in orientated is always going to be a winner for me!
So, I thought I would share this month’s contents with you. The theme is “Good Enough to Eat April 2014”, and they have taken the inspiration from local food markets, the kitchen and all their favourite eateries. This month’s samples feature delicious scents and food elements.
