My Seventh Graze Box

Hapas Tapas
This stuff is delicious and is my favourite by far! I love love the jumbo chilli corn, it is so crunchy and flavoursome, but not too spicy. Just enough heat! A great mix of crunchy delights. 

Banoffee Pie
With some of the mixes that graze make it is always best to combine each element as they taste so much better. The fudge was really nice, small little cubes of sweetness. The banana coins were good too. 

Honeycomb Crunch
I have to say the best part by far was the honeycomb covered in milk chocolate. They worked really well with the raisins and almonds a great filling and interesting snack!

Marvellous Macaroon
This again, a lovely mix. Not too sweet but sweet enough to satisfy any need for a sweet treat. The white chocolate tasted great, paired with the flaked coconut and not forgetting the sliced almond and amaretti drops!

So overall a great box, you can use the code: EMILYA4FP to get your 1st, 5th and 10th box! Graze is great as you can cancel at any time. So if you wanted you could cancel straight after receiving your first free box!

My Website: Emilyboo27

So today's post is going to be a little plug for my website which has recently launched. I have always wanted to have my own business (my far off future plans will be to eventually have my own cafe by the seaside. I'm quite a creative person and like to sew. 

We recently bought a sewing machine from a charity shop and I think that is what started it off. I am currently making hair scrunchies of all sorts of material patterns. 

I then thought about making anklets/bracelets, it excited me on the vast expanse of choices you had in choosing charms to attach on to the bracelets. 

I have started off with dragonflies and stars using two different types of cord (by the way if you do have a request for a charm or pattern, just ask as I may just make your wish come true!) All items range from just £1.25 to £2.50, so very inexpensive!

So that has been what I have been up to recently...it is quite a exciting plan and it will be a great thing to do in the holidays! I hope you enjoy browsing!

MUA Eye Primer - £2.50

I have been wanting to get my hands on this so badly. It is forever out of stock both online and in store. I'm going to put it out there now, it wasn't worth the wait.

I may have got a dud, or I don't let it dry long enough. But it seems to make everything I use on top of it crease, which is a right bummer! I was hoping to love this great bargain of a eye primer. I swear there isn't much of a availability of eye primers like with lib scrubs, which aren't too pricey and hard on your purse...anyway. It does nothing at keeping my powder or cream eye shadow on! I am absolutely gutted! 

Have you tried this, what are your thoughts?

VO5 Refresh Me Quick Dry Shampoo

VO5 Refresh Me Quick Dry Shampoo - £3.59
I bought this when it was on a promotional offer in Superdrug, I think it was bit more than a pound (£1.70). I had heard quite a few good things about it. I had just finished my batiste (which seemed to last me an age!) I was on the look out for something new. 

This ticked the box of smelling great, quite like a variety of fruits. It really made my hair feel refreshed and back to life from being dull and without a wash for a couple of days.

However sometimes when using it, it can tend to make my hair feel clogged up, this may only be achieved by washing. It didn't leave any white marks, which is good as it means you don't have to go to the trouble of getting it out.  

It is a good all rounder, but I still feel like I haven't found 'the one'.

Say "Yes" to Carrots!

I bought this a while ago, off of Fragrance Direct (which by the way I can't find any longer on their website, but it was a steal at £1.99). 

For a while I had gone off the idea and concept of exfoliating products, just because sometimes they can be such a drag to remove and the beads get everywhere and you never seem to get them all off and end up finding the beads still stuck to your face. Definetly not a good look! I now mostly use these products within the shower as it is so much easier. It is more liquidy than solid and scrubby, which is what I prefer as it is much easier to handle.

I find that this really does a good job of removing any dry patches and just smoothing my skin in general. It smells alright, if you are worried that it smells of carrots, there is no need. A great product overall!

17 Wild Metallic Eyes Cream Eye Shadow (Wild Nude) - £3.99 

The link above is for a Europe Boots as I could find it at all on their website..it may be discontinued, but I have recently seen it still in stores. So who knows!

I love the colour of this, I wanted for a while to get the colour tattoos from Maybelline. What put me off was how dark the brown one was. This is the perfect muted brown. It doesn't have too much glitter either. 

What is disappointing it the texture of it, it is very wet, this does make it easy to blend but it creases really badly even with a primer. It is alright for a couple of hours but after that, there is no hope. 

I would love if Maybelline brought out a nude/lighter brown cream eye-shadow, because I would definitely buy it.

Organic Surge Cleansing Lotion

Organic Surge Gentle Cleansing Lotion - £5.99

I got this a while back when they had a massive flash sale and I got it for only £1.50. I am so happy as I got a great deal! I have almost used this all up, it is the most gentle cleanser I have ever used. 

It smells very herbal, which I don't mind. It removes all my make-up with ease (face and eyes). When I put it on my face it is very cooling. It has lasted me a very long time, even by using it everyday. You only need a small squirt. It is fairly watery in consistency. 

I don't' have very sensitive skin but if you do I would recommend you trying this! I won't be rushing out and buying, however as I already have a stock pile of cleansers to use, but if they have a sale of this, I will be there for sure!
