My Little "Road Trip" Box Review July 2015

It's official, My Little Box is the best beauty box out there at the moment. I was trying to put my finger on the exact thing that makes me love the box so much and I think that it's the perfect mix between own brand and well known brands being in the box. Not to mention the quality of the own brand items, this stuff is liquid gold.

The theme for this box is 'road trip' which is super handy because I am jetting off on holiday soon so all of these picks have been welcomed with open arms.

The first thing that caught my eye was the Travel organiser, aka the handiest thing ever, theres a pocket for your money, passport and EHIC/credit cards whilst also having a zip- i'm in love!

I always write postcards to my grandma when i'm on holiday (I'm aware I'm too cool for school) so seeing a pack of postcards with a pen attached to it was a nice touch.

Onto the beauty items... WOW. The first thing I picked up in the pouch was the Garnier Micellar Water which I've had my eye on forever. I'm a big bioderma fan but i've head this is just as good, but a little cheaper, so I am really excited to try it out.

I love Essie Polishes, the finish is glossy and you never need many layers to make it opaque. I recieved the shade "Roarrrrange" which is a vibrant orange.

The own brand choice for this month was a body sorbet, the smell reminds me of the Miracle Moist Aussie shampoo, which isn't something I normally go for. The sorbet is cooling and so perfect for dealing with the summer weather.

Last, but definitely not least, we have some flash tattoos. I am in love with them! I'm saving the three bowed arrow for when I go on holiday but I am printing all the rest of them anywhere I physically can.

This months box was spectacular and well worth the price. Sign up for £11 + P&P here.

Bio-Oil launches new body confidence campaign

Bio-Oil are working closely with the Body Gossip charity to take a selection of Body Philosophies into schools to inspire body confidence amongst young people. As part of the campaign Bio-Oil will be funding Body Gossip to run a Body Confidence Performance Project in 20 schools nationwide. From 1st June to 31st October you can nominate a school to receive a free Body Confidence Workshop here:

I headed straight over to the site to see what everyone had been talking about, and I have to say, some of the stories got me more teary than watching "Marley and Me" *Sobs quietly*. They really inspired me and I'm so glad I stumbled upon it- bring me to why I wrote this post. Your body is beautiful. People may insult it, but most of the time it's because it's not the "normal" look. Remember when everyone used to mock big brows? Then, BAM Cara Delevigne came on the scene and people started drawing their eyebrows on like there was no tomorrow. And that's just it, body image has become a trend- this year it's killer curves, next year it could be no curves at all. Don't change your image because of what others like, be the person YOU want to be. That's exactly what Bio-Oil are trying to encourage people to do- respect yourself, your body and your skin. Every part of you is beautiful, you are not a trend!

If you're no longer in school I recommend taking a look at the My Body Philosophy site, it's truly inspiring.
