Gemporia asked if they could send me one of their new birthstone candles a few months ago but, due to some postal issues, mine got lost. It’s a shame as their birthstone candles look absolutely beautiful and I’d have really loved an amethyst one (I’m a February birthday) but my disappointment was short lived when they told me they had something perfect in mind to send me instead.

When Prestige offered to send me one of their bouquets of Mother’s Day Flowers I had no hesitation to say yes. For many years I didn’t really understand the desire for cut flowers as they didn’t live long, but over the past year or so I’ve really come to love them and whenever I get the chance to buy some flowers to brighten up the living room I will. Prestige is one of those brands I’ve heard of many times before but not, yet, ordered from and I was intrigued to see what their Mother’s Day flowers range contained –

I did not think I was going to get the January 2018 Lip Monthly post done in January as it comes all the way from the US, and because my account said my bag was still in the warehouse, but it arrived a few days ago, much to my surprise! I am rather happy that I can get my post up in January, even if I am still behind the US bloggers of course haha.

Lip monthly is $12.95 plus shipping (if you’re in the UK, not sure if there’s shipping in the US) of $3.99 – When added together this comes in at around £13 which means you’re safe from customs and is about the same price as most UK subscription services. If you want to sign up you can use the code 50OFF to get your first bag for half price, and if you use my referral link I’d be incredibly grateful!

I have seen Lip Monthly featured on a few YouTube videos, and on a couple of blogs, and as a lip product lover I really wanted to give it a go.  I remember looking it up a couple of years ago but I think that the cost for postage, and potential customs, put me off but the price is, actually, not that bad now and with the cost of the bag and postage added together it comes to around £13 which is the same as boxes such as Glossybox and Birchbox and is below the customs threshold. As well as that, the first bag is only $5, so with postage it only cost me £4.99. Obviously coming from the US means that my bags won’t always be here that quickly so that’s why the December 2017 Lip Monthly is going up in January.

If you decide to sign up (I think everyone’s first bag is $5 so check it out, or if not then there’ll be another offer) then please go ahead and use my referral code as it’ll earn me some points which I can use for an extra product in a future bag –

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!
