fotorcreated

Hello! Hello! Hello!

The other day, I opened the door and to my delight, a box full of goodies arrived on my step: The Bella Box. I couldn’t be any more excited. My first ever subscription box and I couldn’t be any more satisfied with what I received. For those who have never heard of Bella Box subscription service, it is an Australian monthly box subscription service that delivers five or more beauty and lifestyle products and samples to your doorstep. You can then trial and use the products and if you find a product you really like you can buy the product from their website here.  Bella Boxes are normally $18 per box but I have a special link that can let you guys receive your first Bella box for $10. Check it out here!

When you first open the box this is what it looks like. This month’s box was brown rather than its usual blue but that is due to the size of the products. I love how unique the packaging is. The Bella Box logo is placed all around the cardboard box and the black tissue paper is a simple yet nice touch to the design of the package. I do wish I could see the blue box packaging. In addition, I was given a personalized message in the box which was such a nice personal touch. I also received card with a list and description of the products featured in the box. The card included the theme of this month’s box which was “Summer Glow”, the price of the products and where to buy the products.

the products:

Overall, I’m very happy with the products that Bella Box provided. They were all good quality and reputable products that were easy to use. The price is definitely worth it as you are given not only samples but also actual full sized products. There were some emerging brand products in the box, such as gilded cage as well as some famous products, such as Revlon. All the products in this month’s box are things that I love and would definitely use.

These were products that were in my box. A 7-day fitness guide was also in my box! My favorite products are the Gilded Cage Charisma Lipgloss, the Revlon Professional Hair Treatment and the Pure Paw Paw Ointment, I can definitely see myself using these products in the future. Overall, I am impressed by the number of products they gave me. With seventeen dollars, I could never see myself buying so many products and so it definitely is worth the price. I actually really love this box and I highly recommend it for anyone who is a fan of beauty products or is looking for a good Christmas present because this box is definitely worth the hype and price. Hopefully, I will get another one of these boxes in the future.

#shoptilyoudrop shopping life hacks

This is my first lifestyle/fashion post but as a teenager of the 21st century, I adore shopping. No, I mean I seriously have an addiction. I hope I’m not the only one. 🙂 I love shopping for clothes and books too but this post is primarily going to be about shopping for clothes because who doesn’t like to go on an all out shopping spree? As a dedicated shopping enthusiast, one of the things that make me extremely happy whilst I’m shopping is finding and buying discounted clothes, which are normally expensive. I am all about the Black Friday and Boxing Day sales because who wouldn’t want to pay heavily discounted clothing that is good quality and looks amazing. However, I know that we don’t have sales every day and sometimes we really want to buy something but it’s way too expensive. So, today I decided to give you my top two tips on how to save your money when it comes to shopping.

using unidays…

Iery283ur2f there was a literal angel for shopping, Unidays would be it. Unidays is basically an app and website in which students, from both university and school can sign up to receive amazing discounts from good brands. If you click the link in the photo, you can sign up to the platform. What’s really good about Unidays is the fact that the discounts are from well-known brands, such as, Boohoo, Apple, The Iconic and ASOS. It also doesn’t just have fashion discounts. It’s a great platform overall for students who want to find student discounts. Not only that but whenever you recommend someone to the platform you can get store credit. This post may have been prompted by the people at

Not only that but whenever you recommend someone to the platform you can get store credit. This post may have been prompted by the people at Unidays but I wouldn’t share something with you guys if I thought it was bad. I’ve been using Unidays for a while and I love it, it’s really handy to use whenever your shopping because all you have to do is whip out your phone and you’ll get the discounts. It’s definitely a handy thing to have when you are shopping online or in stores.

sales and outlets

ehr0283ue23You know that saying “Good things come to those who wait,” it definitely applies to shopping. Sometimes we see a new release dress and buy it immediately but two weeks later you discover that it goes on sale. I hate it when that happens and I know it may seem pretty obvious but sometimes if you just wait for a few more weeks, the t-shirt you wanted will often go on sale or you may even find another t-shirt that looks exactly like it from another store at a better price. Another tip that stems from this one is shopping at outlets. Outlets are heaven for shopping fashionistas. Outlets are basically a mall for famous brands in which the clothes come from the direct warehouse. Therefore, often you can find the clothes for cheaper prices or you may even be able to find clothes that they no longer sell in your everyday shop. I have so many stories about the amazing clothes I find at outlets but here is one of the. So, for a very long time I was been looking for Nike Roshes for ages and after months of searching, I could never find the right pair and they were just too expensive. One day, I decided to go shopping at an outlet and I found the perfect pair of Nikes at a discounted price. I couldn’t believe my eyes, it was pretty amazing. I got the perfect pair of Nikes at an amazing rate. Do you guys have any amazing shopping stories?

I hope you guys enjoyed this! Definitely, let me know if you guys have any shopping hacks! If you like these lifestyle posts, every once in a while let me know because I love writing these!
