Baker Days Letterbox Cake Review + Giveaway...

Baker Days are an innovative company who have developed 'a truly versatile colour and decorating process' which allows you to personalise their printed designs for your friends and family whilst making the cake 'actually taste just as if you made them yourself.' From smaller letter box cakes to larger cakes, a variety of flavours, designs and tailored to suit your dietary requirements, these are the perfect gift for your loved ones, especially for Christmas! 

I was kindly offered a letterbox cake (5 inch) in a Christmas design of my choice, I chose the Reindeer Collage Cake and chose the Gluten free option. I have to admit, I wasn't sure what a letterbox cake would be like, the obvious thoughts crossed my mind, would it be dry? would it get ruined in the packaging when posted?  how small did it have to be to fit through a letterbox? Luckily, I needn't have worried! The cake comes in a gorgeous tin so it is well protected and is a great size, although stated as 3-4 portions, I think you could get more as those 4 portions are quite big so the sizing is generous for a 'smaller' cake.

Thinking of ordering one for someone specialOrder before 2pm 19th December to guarantee delivery for Christmas!

Review | My Little Cosy Box...

My Little Box, in my opinion, is the best subscription box to have reached the UK, albeit not so long ago! This little box fills me with such happiness each and every month and when I get that text from my Mum to say my box has arrived, it makes that long day at work a little more bearable, sad, but true! I love the variety of products in this subscription box and I get just as excited about the lifestyle extras as I do about the beauty products, I can always guarantee there will be something I love and so far I've loved it all!

Once again My Little Box succeeded in creating yet another awesome themed month for November and it was certainly a 'cosy' one! Focusing on brightening up these cold, dark and rainy days, the box featured a variety of products from waterproof makeup to a microwavable beanbag, they covered all aspects to make for a very 'Cosy November.'

The prints are the first thing in the box and they always get me excited, each one is so meaningful and something you can relate to, perfect for framing, I think every MLB subscriber's office/house will be full of these prints in no time!

The lifestyle pieces were my favourite items this month, who doesn't want a miniature mug to make tea breaks more chic, especially when it says 'how is your day gunna be?' on the side and at the bottom of the mug it says 'happy' could it be any sweeter?! The microwavable bean bag has been a life saver just lately, my stomach has been giving me a lot of hassle so I love heating it up at night and using it to keep me warm in bed whilst helping to ease the pains. 

I was really impressed with this month's beauty items, which focus on a seasonally appropriate smokey eye. I don't think I have tried anything from Yves Rocher before but I have heard good things so I am excited to give this eyeshadow in 112 Brun Cafe Mate (£13.20) a whirl, a gorgeous deep brown that looks perfect for contouring the outer crease, I can see this being promoted to 'the everyday makeup bag' very quickly. The Star Liner by Arcancil Paris (£5.50) another brand that I am unfamiliar with, and I call myself a beauty blogger?! is actually pretty good, a soft kohl pencil that is highly pigmented and once applied, stays put, it already has a thumbs up from me! This month's product from MLB's own beauty brand My Little Beauty is a mascara, now it's not my favourite product from the brand but it's ok to use as a backup, just don't cry with it on, it stings like hell!
