LoveMeBeauty Box July 2014 - Menu 2

My LoveMeBeauty box arrived a few days ago so I thought I'd share with you what I received.
This is the only box I subscribe to, mainly because I like that it's not always beauty products and some lifestyle related things are usually included. I got some really cute little note books a few month ago which I love, and they have also included some tea samples in the past couple of boxes.
Onto the contents! I really like this months offerings. I chose menu 2... mainly swayed by the lip gloss and the fact I really do not need another eyeliner! I'll give you a brief overview of the contents and my first impressions of each product.

 The Tea Shed 4am Tea 20 Teabags (£3.50)
I have tried this tea once and I'm not too sure on it. It is a 'white tea' and is supposed to be really good for your skin. It says don't add milk but it looked really strange and didn't really taste of much so I added milk. I drank it but I wouldn't choose it over a normal cuppa! I will give it another go, and I do like that it's a large bag of teabags as opposed to the three we received in the previous box.
Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in 'Hollywood' (RRP £11.60)
This is so pretty and very pigmented. It is a matte consistency and it dries quickly, but it isn't drying at all. It smells so good but I can't quite put my finger on it. Caramel. Popcorn. You catch my drift... yummy! I wore it when I went out for a meal and it lasted for a good few hours, so I'm very happy with this!

Ofra Pressed Eyeshadow in 'Bliss' (RRP £8.80)
I haven't used this yet so can only give you a first impression but it looks like a gorgeous shimmery champagne colour that is perfect for summer! I'll definitely be trying this out over the weekend.

Jelly Pong Pong 2-in1 Eyeliner and Eyeshadow (RRP £10.50)
I'm not sure why I received this as it wasn't on the menu. I don't think I've seen anyone else receive this in their box. I didn't get the Weleda body lotion like some others people got (the first 450 orders received an extra product) because I had trouble ordering as I had two subscriptions running on my account but the customer service team sorted it out pretty quickly for me. It's very pretty anyway, and very blendable. It's a lovely dark bronze colour and looks like it has very subtle pink shimmer particles. When I got home after a few hours of wearing it, it had creased pretty badly but I do have oily lids and didn't put eyelid primer on, PLUS it's absolutely boiling outside. I will try it out again and if you'd like to see how I get on with it let me know.

LashEm Lash Enhancing Serum 2ml Sample (Full Size RRP £40.00)
I haven't actually tried this. I don't know if I will either. I don't have a problem with my eyelashes but I suppose it won't hurt to give it a go!

So Susan Dual Brow Powder Palette (RRP £11.95)
As I mentioned before, my eyebrows are very sparse and I have to fill them in (on days I can be bothered!). This darker shade is the perfect colour. My natural hair colour is VERY dark, almost black. However, over the past couple of years I've been dyeing it lighter and lighter and now it's a mousy browny/blondey colour with blonde highlights. It sounds very drastic, however I much prefer it lighter. This now means that my eyebrows are very dark and my hair is very light. If I put a lighter colour powder on my brows then you can just see the dark brows coming through. I want to get HD brows done but I really don't think there is much they can do. I've started using my RapidBrow again so hopefully I can grow them a bit more and finally get HD brows done so I don't have to worry about them as much and they can be dyed to a colour that goes better with my hair colour.
 The darker colour in this little duo is actually a really good match and looks natural. I really like the little brush and especially love the mirror; the last palette we got didn't have one and it was so annoying. I haven't used this enough to measure the staying power but will definitely be using it over the next few days.

So Susan Flutter Mascara (RRP £14.95)
I have long eyelashes so love a volumising mascara. This one really did nothing for my eyelashes though. I used three coats and it barely looked like I had anything on. Not one for me afraid.

 Overall I think this is a really great box. I love the liquid lipstick, can't wait to try out the eyeshadow and I'm hoping the eyebrow palette becomes a staple make up bag item.

The menu I chose is now sold out but you can still buy the other two menus online from LoveMeBeauty.

V&A Garden Birds Collection

I was recently sent a beautiful set of china plates and mugs from the V&A Garden Birds collection. As you may or may not know, I am a print designer so love a great print, especially if it involves flowers or anything to do with nature. I was so excited when I opened the box and saw these gorgeous, colourful pieces.

They are so pretty and would be perfect for serving afternoon tea! They are very fragile; so fragile that I'm actually scared to use them. I will definitely only be getting them out for special occasions but might have to have a tea party just so I can use them! If you click onto the English Table website, they have a photo of the plates fixed onto a wall which I think is a brilliant idea. I will definitely think about that when I get a kitchen of my own to decorate!

Which is you favourite colour in the set?
Do you have a special tea set?

An Update

Hello! Do you remember me? Sorry I haven't posted in a long time; I've been really busy trying to get things sorted so hopefully I can turn the thing I love into a full time job. I abandoned my blog for a while because these other things took priority, but I also have realised today that I miss it. For reasons I don't really want to go into right now, I have to keep busy over the next few months and I think blogging again will definitely help me to do this.
I have a few exciting things coming up - a review of some gorgeous homeware and hopefully soon will be doing a kickstarter video so will keep you updated with that.
For now I'll leave you with a snapshot of a new print I have been working on.
P.S. If you would like to follow my new twitter account, it's @miafelce ;) #shamelessplug

My Statement Necklace Collection

You may have noticed from my OOTD's that I am a little obsessed with statement necklaces at the moment. I have bought so many over the past few months, mostly from eBay. I wear them in the evening when I get dressed up, but also just in the day to jazz up a plain outfit.
I thought I'd share my ever growing collection with you and maybe give you some inspiration.

Homeware Haul

I've bought a few new homey things lately - I have a slight obsession with pretty homeware. I moved out at the beginning of the year and I've been buying lots of things to make my house more homely, even if I have nowhere else to put anything! I like to look online but also can't go to a supermarket without having a quick look at their homeware section - Tesco in particular! I've bought these bits over the past few months so thought I'd do a small haul. (Please excuse my non ironed bedding!)
