My favourite time of the month is around 10 days into the month when I get an email from the man in the post room at work to let me know I have a parcel. It't not often I'm able to keep my cool when I know it's my latest My Little Box. It usually gets torn open before I even get back to my desk, never mind waiting until I get home. This month's My Little Box is themed perfectly around seashells, and all things needed for a trip to the seaside. That's my kinda box...

What's Inside the July My Little Box?

Opening up any edition of the My Little Box is always a treat, and this month is no different. After taking the adorable shell covered lid off the box, you're greeted with a frame worthy card wrapped in pretty twine that says "Let's go see the sea" - yes please. Just underneath that are two little note cards with envelops, wrapped in a ribbon that says,

"Without your smartphone, tablet, or laptop, what's left? The answer, for us: paper, pencil, and a desire to share words instead of emoji's, emotions instead of cat videos, and messages that won't arrive right away - but slowly, by post. With a real-life stamp in the corner."

I've recently started to really notice how much time I spend on my phone, laptop, screens in general. I've been making a real effort to take a break from it all and spend more time with real people in real moments making real memories, so these note cards are perfect and so well timed! (Side note - has anyone else tried the app 'Moment'? It shows you how much time you're spending on your phone each day. I actually couldn't believe how much time I'm wasting with my head in my phone instead of being present and actually in the moment!)

Now for the beauty products! The perfect editions for your summer getaway. Nestled inside an adorable shell covered pouch are; 

The My Little Beauty Sandy Shore Body Scrub, which contains white Polynesian sand, sea salt crystals, Tiare flower and seaweed oils to gently exfoliate. This smells incredible, it's not too strong and overpowering, but scented enough to leave your skin smelling sweet and fresh after use. I'd say the grains are medium sized, small enough to rub across the skin evenly. I'm obsessed with a good body scrub, and can see this one in my shower for a little while!

The Institut Karite Rose Shea Hand Cream. I'm usually terrible when it comes to hand cream. I have one on my desk at work, and one that I carry around in my bag with me, but it's not often I actually remember to use it. This tube is pretty perfectly sized for popping into your bag, and at only 30ml it's fine for your carry on luggage if you're jetting off somewhere nice this summer. It definitely has a rose scent, but again it isn't too overpowering and doesn't smell like that sort of grandma rose, so if you're not a fan of rose scents it's still maybe worth a try. It's not too greasy, which is a mega win for me, and leaves your hands feeling lovely and soft!

The L'Occitane Pivoine Flora Shower Gel. Now this is pretty floral, so if you really aren't into those scents this probably isn't for you. L'Occitane say this shower gel leaves behind a green floral scent inspired by a blooming peony, and contains a peony extract from France. Although I don't usually love super floral scents, this one is actually really nice. It's quite sweet, and reminds me of Summer time in the garden as a kid!

I'm a sucker for candles as it is, and these cute hanging candle holders have got me wanting to make a campfire and hang these off a tree under the stars with a glass of wine. Two tealights come alongside two fireproof paper bags with handles to attach, although you do need to put the candles inside glass jars before you put them inside the bags! It's items like this that make me love the My Little Box!

The final item inside the July My Little Box is a travellers pouch pillow. Who doesn't love a two in one? With a zip at the top for all of your important items, and a nozzle (what are they even called?!) to blow up the pouch so that you can kick back and relax on the beach, this waterproof pouch is the perfect little travel companion! P.S - it was kind of hard to photograph, but luckily My Little Box's sketches show you exactly how it works!

So, that's the July My Little Box in a nutshell! Do you subscribe to any beauty/lifestyle boxes? Which are your favourites?
