I feel that a lot of my ‘wishlist’ items this year are very much things that everyone in my family knows are favourites and I was thinking a bit more of what is ‘new for me’ for this list. Something that might make my family be a little surprised when they see this. Hopefully it might help with some ideas for you or to help with your shopping too.
I had been thinking about doing this a while ago, having a lookback on my previous Glossybox boxes. Now it is November and everything is heading to a more seasonal look and I’ve finally got some time to start. Isn’t that typical?
Anyway I am sure you’re all aware of Glossybox by now but it is a monthly subscription box. It costs £13.25 a month and features full size and deluxe sized beauty products (including skincare, hair, nails, makeup and more). I started to receive mine last summer and I have loved discovering new brands and products.
Obviously some of the packaging has changed over this time and some of them might not be available anymore. But here’s my reviews of the box now, did I re-purchase any of them or are any still in my collection.

I have also noted that I’m more likely to not keep up with who is No 1 any more but I’ll be the first to tell everyone when someone I have actually bought their record gets there. Ed Sheeran probably.
I use Spotify a lot and find its algorithm to be pretty good to play the stuff that I really love and it’s good at introducing me to a lot of new music too. That said, I do find a lot of the time I’m relying on an app for my music knowledge – Shazam. When I’m watching TV, mostly American TV I normally have the app loaded up on my phone because there will be at least one song that makes me say “ooh what’s this?”.
I sometimes use it in restaurants too…
At the moment there are a few songs that I feel are played in a current loop on spotify (and also in my head) and they are; Read More
Hasn’t it been hot…
Damn, I said I wouldn’t mention the heat.
So anyway, it seems like we are all (around the world) having 500 billion degree temperatures* and we are all desperately trying not to moan about it, right?!
I’ve not got a load of favourites really this month as everything has been minimal in this heat; Read More
