Allergies are no fun. They make us feel tired, stuffy and overall worse. So when the warmer season comes and allergies strike, a lot of people struggle with many different symptoms. For some, it goes beyond that, if they suffer from something they are surrounded by all year round, like dust.
And besides the medical symptoms, allergies really don’t make us look that great. But, if we can’t make the allergies go away completely, there are some things we can do to make them more bearable, and definitely things we can do to cover up the symptoms.
Hi lovelies – it’s that time of the month again when I review my Birchbox! This time we’ll be looking at the July Birchbox, which I’m pretty excited for all round.
The container is pretty cute, with pastel pink colours, although I don’t think any box will be able to beat the tin we got last month. The products (except from one) I think are my favourites that I have got so far! We got 3 full sized products this month, and two sample sizes, but for sample sizes we were given a decent amount of each. Let’s have a look at them!
Hello lovelies, today I’m collaborating with Emma from Out of the Dark and Into the Beauty. We’ll be writing about our top festival beauty essentials – you can check out Emma’s blog post here. She’s such a lovely girl and I’m so excited to be collab-ing with her!
Firstly, and I think this is mostly everybody’s festival staple, is glitter. I feel like even though glitter is such a popular make-up choice anyway, for a glam night out or just when you want to spice up your look, its popularity explodes around the summer/fesitval season. Eyes, lips, cheeks, hair, temples – glitter can and will be found everywhere!
This June Birchbox is five years old, and so released a lovely box to celebrate that this month. First off, the box itself is gorgeous – Birchbox always seem to pull it out of the bag with their packaging. It’s a tin box, with floral patterns, as you can see. It’s supposed to resemble and old style English biscuit box, which ties in with their extra gift that they gave away this month. I’ll definitely be reusing this!
The free 6th gift that we got this month was a pack of 3 different teas from Whittards. It came in a cute box with similar patterns to the Birchbox tin, and I received 1 Earl Grey, 1 Lemon and Ginger, and 1 Mango and Bergamot. Unfortunately, you won’t see them in any of my pictures as I shared and drank them with my parents as soon as my delivery arrived (oops) and forgot to save the packaging!
I tried the Mango and Bergamot tea and it was delicious, and not too overpowering in flavour!
Crayola Beauty ?
Our beloved craft brand from when we were kids have now brought out a beauty range. I’m still in shock, and so excited! Crayola are collaborating with ASOS, and at first sight I thought that it couldn’t really be Crayola, but it is!
Since I bought my products, they have brought out more – I’d definitely recommend having a nosey on ASOS’s website, even if just out of curiosity. They have eyeshadow palettes, face and lip palettes, highlighters, mascara, make up brushes and face crayons. Yes, crayons! They come looking like your classic Crayola crayon, and if you buy a pack of three, they actually come in the classic Crayola packaging as well.
