Empties October and November 2014

Kia Ora!

Well, this feels a bit out of date. It's been sitting in my drafts folder for quite some time, and I've just not gotten around to writing the post itself until now. So I'll make sure this is followed by the December and January Empties promptly! I promise!

T2 Raspberry Rush Loose Leaf Tea

I emptied this box so quickly. I think about a week after buying it I was halfway through. Yum!! It's a lovely black tea, with a raspberry flavour. It isn't too sweet, and the raspberry isn't overpowering. I'm rubbish at describing tea, so I'm just going to say I loved it, and can't wait to get some more of this flavour. I drank it with milk, and it was delicious!

Memebox Special #68 Hair Salon

Kia Ora!

Once more into the breach dear friends! Onwards to more Memebox discoveries! 

I know that these boxes came out yonks ago, but I'm enjoying unboxing them anyway. Their will even be the odd review included (depending on if I've been able to use the product yet or not). I'm just using a backlog of easy posts for the next wee while, as my Masters thesis is due soon, so in real life I'm quite stressed out, and don't have a lot of free time. Blogging will be sporadic for the next couple of months, but once I'm finished, I have big plans for a giveaway! Stay tuned (way) in the future.

Something new and different for us!

Kia Ora!

My cousin sent a surprise package to my SO and I yesterday. I have been very curious about what it could be, and it turned out to be far more awesome than I could have imagined! It was a box full of fresh fruit and veges, and plenty of them! My SO opened it while I was at work, and he did an unboxing of it for us. Kudos to him for the awesome photos!

It came with a cooler bag and a ginormous box inside full of the delicious goodies. It's from a company called The Fruit Guys. Cool.

Project 10 Pan - Can I do this?

Kia Ora!

New year, new resolutions. I've put myself on a no-buy for January (which is a heart-wrenching exercise in self-control), and has so far been successful. I've also decided to do a Project Pan for the next few months, as a way of working through the products I already own. 

This first post will detail the products I've chosen to attempt to finish. My end date will be the last day of April. I'm making it this long so I have a chance to actually finish the majority of the products. I've never done anything like this before, so I'm going to give myself plenty of time to try and do it properly. I've marked blue lines on the products to mark where they are currently up to, and will re-draw lines at each update. 

I'm doing a total of 13 products, of a rather wide variety. I have mostly skincare products, ones which are part of my usual routine, but a couple of random products too. Read on to find out what I'm aiming to finish!

Violet Box New Zealand - November and December 2014 + Make your own box

Kia Ora!

Today is something a wee bit different, and by different I mean not Memebox. I feel like I've been neglecting other subscriptions in favour of Memebox, and I wanted to finally start unpacking and using the products. 

I've had an excess of Memeboxes to contend with, and a growing dissatisfaction with the samples and useless products that pop up in other subscriptions. It seems (to me) that Goodiebox, Violet Box and Lust Have It have been lacking recently. As a result I've unsubscribed from all three, and will keep an eagle eye out for something to replace them (other than the Beauty Review box which is currently the most exciting box in my life). 

That being said, let's explore 3 different boxes from Violet Box and see what I got!

Memebox Speical #64 Green Food Cosmetics

Kia Ora!

I'm planning to break up the monotony of Memebox posts soon, but until then ...

It's time for yet another unboxing from the huge influx of Memeboxes recently. Today it is Green Food Cosmetics. I'm crossing my fingers for broccoli and herby things. All delicious smelling and with good results of course.

Memebox Special #59 Scrub 2

Kia Ora!

I was drooling over the products in the first Memebox Scrub box, and knew I had to have this box. I can't wait to see what's inside. Scrub products are so great to have around, and often smell delicious. It's weird but I like to slough off the dead skin and see a clean, sparkling face (or legs/other body part) afterwards. What can I say, I've always been a bit odd. 

Look at how many arrived in one day. Gosh, how will I keep up with the blog writing, and the trying out of products?
