The Glossybox for January 2018 will be my last GB post for a little while, because I’ve decided to stop all beauty boxes (apart from Latest in Beauty, for now) because I have so many samples that I need to use up and I don’t want to add to them quicker than I can use them. I have been really enjoying Glossybox, though, so I expect I’ll be re-starting it once I’ve got my collection to a more manageable level. This month’s box is a pretty impressive value (I’ll pop that in at the end) so I’ve been looking forward to showing you what I got. If you want to see what I got in December, then see my post here.

If you like the box and want to see if Glossybox continue this level of high value then you can use my referral link to sign up and get yourself 20% off and some credit for me, win win for everyone! https://www.glossybox.co.uk/referrals.list?applyCode=LAURA-R9B&li

Just a quick post, for today, sharing with you my Latest in Beauty picks for January 2018. I get the 3 product subscription, for LiB, but you can pay a little more and pick 6 or 9 products, depending on what you want. I love that you can chose what you get for this service, it makes a nice change from getting disappointing products in certain boxes, though of course you do lose the surprise element with these. You can see my December subscription post here.

That’s right, I decided to use some of my Christmas money to re-subscribe to TreatBox again because I used to really enjoy getting a random selection of lifestyle items and have had some long standing favourites from this box which I still use, and love, today. I have put my Glossybox subscription on hold, so my January post (watch this space) will be my last one for a while. I recently did a lot of beauty product sorting and I organised my samples in to boxes so that I can work my way through using them, I just don’t want to keep adding to them at the moment, especially as I got so many wonderful things in my beauty advents too. So, I digress, here’s my post for the January 2018 TreatBox.

This will, hopefully, just be a quick post to share my 2017 Book List with you as I like to do each New Year. If you’ve been a reader for a while you’ll know that I set myself a challenge each year and in 2017 that challenge was to read 75 books.

In previous years I’ve read a lot more but having Oliver, and getting more ill, made it a lot harder and, now I have also tried to find other things to fill my time so, for 2018, I’ll be challenging myself to just read 50 books (which, as it happens, is how this bool challenge started, a group of friend and I challenged ourselves to read 50 books a year for a few years, before I started increasing mine).

If you’d like to see my 2013, 2014, 2015 or 2016 lists then click on each year but if you’d like to see 2017 you can carry on reading.

I’ve been saving up some bits and bobs from boxes, special offers and various things to put in to a giveaway for a little while now and what better time to give you the chance to win a nice, big, prize than at New Year? I’ve ushered in the new year by setting up my new Bullet Journal and setting myself some, hopefully, achievable goals – If you’d like to see more than you can see my post for that here.

I’ve split the giveaway in to two parts – To beauty and lifestyle items so you can really see what’s included – There’s a lovely variety of things for you to win. As always the entry method is Rafflecopter and this giveaway is UK only.
