bellabox | April 2014

I got my first Bellabox in the mail last week and although I was super excited to open it, i've refrained from trying any of the products until this week of uni was over. It has been hectic as usual! Although we only had three days of classes (because of the two long weekends), they managed to schedule two big exams for us. ew. At least it's done now and it's weekend!!

Anyway, this is more of a "what I got" post than a Bellabox review. I am no way any beauty expert, nor have I tried that many products. I signed up for this subscription because I was curious and a little excited about the prospect of getting mail every month!

The items that I received were:
Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream 8.5g (17g RRP $14.95)
Gatineau Aquamemory Moisture Replenish Cream 15ml (50ml RRP $104)
Indio Eye Rise 5ml (15ml RRP $67.20)
L'Oreal Base Magique Primer 2x5ml (15ml RRP $29.95)
Red Earth Illusion Lights Beauty Pro Eye Shadow in #41 Grey Flannel 1.5g (1.5g RRP $12.00)

I haven't decided how long i'm going to continue with the subscription because I have a feeling i'm going to end up with a basket of samples that i'm not going to use and so $15 a month will be a waste. I'll give it a couple months and see how much of the products i'll actually use.

Food Friday

I have no scheduled classes today so a couple friends and I made use of this opportunity to go for brunch. Photos have been popping up on my instagram for weeks from this little breakfast/brunch spot, Harvest Espresso. I have been dying to try it, so today was the day!

Mango and Coconut Bread with seasonal fresh fruit, ginger cream, pistachio and fruit coulis
To go with it, I had a Red Ice Tea (iced Rooibos tea with cloudy apple juice)
