I want to start this post by sharing something that happened to me today, which is something that I’m sure has happened to many people before, but nonetheless made me feel like such an idiot and a teeny bit embarrassed.
Work meetings are not always the most thrilling things, but this afternoon I was in a particular projecty type meeting where an update was being given on various things. As one of the updates – on an area that I have no involvement in – was being given I zoned out for just a moment and before I knew it, I’d heard “isn’t that right Sian?”………Well, I’ll be honest, I didn’t have a clue what I was being asked and just answered with an enthusiastic “yep!”. It took me a few seconds to realise that we’d moved on from the previous update and were now talking about the part that I’m involved in! Oooops.
I think I covered it up ok, but there will certainly have been the odd one or two who realised I wasn’t totally paying attention. And I’ve annoyed myself by doing that, particularly because everyone in that room was far more important than I am and it’s always good to make a good impression isn’t it? And I hate not being on the ball in work meetings. Unfortunately for me, this is probably about the third or fourth time where I’ve done or said something slightly stupid in front of a couple of people in particular, so I don’t think I’m endearing myself to them at all. In fact I’m confident that they think I’m a bit rubbish. Must get my act together!
Anyway, this post is intended to be about this months fabulous Glossybox! When last months came, it was explained that for the October box you’d either receive a Unicorn box or a Mermaid box, which is quite cool right? Well naturally, given my love of the beach and the sea and stuff I was hoping to be a Mermaid. I was however convinced that because I wanted to be a mermaid, I was going to be a unicorn. Because that’s life isn’t it.
So when my box arrived last week and I unwrapped it, I was chuffed to pieces to be a MERMAID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HURRAAAHHHHHHH! THANK YOU Glossybox for knowing me so well 😉
Putting aside the products for a minute, the actual box itself is a work of art. Love love love it. And I’m definitely keeping it for future storage of whatever needs storing.
I actually haven’t used any of the products yet so I can’t do a review of any sort at the moment on how good they are. However I can say that despite their being lots of make up in this box, it was really fabulous. I’m not a huge make up wearer as I tend to wear minimal make up for normal every day wear, so getting pretty much all make up items in the box had the potential to be a bit disappointing for me. But I have to say, I’m not disappointed in the slightest!
The eyeshadow palette is perfect for beautiful going out eyes so I’m actually looking forward to using it. And the crème to powder blush is the perfect colour for me so I’m also really pleased with that.
Funnily enough, just a couple of weeks ago I was thinking to myself that I’d quite like to try and find a new eyebrow pencil. Well the guys at Glossybox must have been reading my mind because there was one in the box this month which looks like it’s exactly what I want so again, something else I’m looking forward to trying out. Who knew I would ever say these things about make up?! That’s the power of Glossybox folks 🙂
I’m still loving receiving my monthly Glossybox! It continues to surprise and delight me which is something I never expected I’d ever say about beauty products! And I’ve now said that for the past 4 months so it must be true!
As I’m a bit later than I planned in writing this post, there’ll be another post up tomorrow and I’ll be giving all you lovely people an update on my house move. Hopefully, fingers crossed and touching lots of wood, I’ll have some exciting news on that front tomorrow!
Until tomorrow then, much love to all you mermaids, unicorns, and other non-magical creatures and humans out there.
But special big love to the mermaids. Because mermaids rock 😉 x
