My Little Box and Diane Von Furstenberg Collaberation...

Just two weeks ago I received my first My Little Box and I was so happy with it that I decided to carry on my subscription, you can see my post here. Because I subscribed to last month's box late, it meant that I received this one very quickly after, if only they did a fortnightly box!

This month's box is a collaboration with the lovely Diane Von Furstenberg! If you don't know who she is, where have you been? Just kidding, I wasn't entirely sure myself! So I decided to do a little research! Diane was once a real life Princess, married to the Prince of Furstenberg she gained her title, however following their divorce in 1972, although she lost the title, she decided to keep the family name. In 1997 Diane re-launched her fashion company and re-introduced her famous wrap dress that is so iconic today. With Diane's company now being a global luxury lifestyle brand with 85 stores worldwide, she is listed as the 68th most powerful woman in the world by Forbes. Wow what a woman, eh?!


'Be the Woman you want to be!'

I absolutely adore these printed cards that come in each box and as I said in my last post, I plan to frame these and put them in my office, I'm thinking of doing a feature wall with all of the prints, as so far they are pretty inspirational and will certainly pick me up on a rainy day!



The Lifestyle products...

My Little Box include their own magazine each month called My Little World which focuses on the theme with a few added extras. This month's focuses on Diane von Furstenberg's style and features interviews with the Belgian actress Hande Kodja, Diane's niece and Diane herself, as well as a makeup tutorial and some delicious recipes. Yep, they cover all bases!

I love a good scarf, especially a statement one, they can completely transform an outfit and you will hardly ever find me without one wrapped around my neck, so I was excited to see this one in a DVF print! There was also 'a kiss from Diane' Lip Brooch which 'effortlessly embodies the confidence and joie de vivre of Diane von Furstenberg.' I think this will jazz up a coat or bag and is a nice little touch to the box as it gives a personalised edge.


The beauty products...

Again I was happy with this months beauty products, although not as exciting as last months, I don't know if they'll ever top that one, these are all products that I do and will use! They came in the little cream bag but this time instead of the little bow logo printed all over, this bag has a DVF logo on the front, can I now claim I have a designer bag?

I adore L'occitane handcreams, so much so, that I have one in each of my most used bags! These hand creams always smell so good and this Vanilla Bouquet Hand Cream is no exception. I love how they sink into skin so effortlessly, leaving skin so soft, without any greasiness that other handcreams often leave. This one may just have to replace the one under my desk at work.

I've never tried anything from the Keratase Couture Styling range so this Hairspray really intrigued me, the mini size makes it perfect to fit in my handbag for day or a clutch at night. It promises to offer 24 hour hold anti-humidity shield with anti-frizz protection and it smells pretty good too!

I've tried a fair few micellar waters since the hype took over the bloggersphere, so I was extremely excited to see this My Little Beauty Micellar Water in this month's box. With Aloe Vera and orange extract, this leaves skin feeling so soft and smooth. I've only used it a handful of times but I'm already in love!

I can't wait to see what they have in store for next month!
