'I Believe I Can Fly' T-shirt (one size)

I've been seeing these little boxes on many blogs for a while now and finally decided to take the plunge and subscribe. I've had some mediocre experiences with beauty boxes in the past, often finding them overpriced and underwhelming. But there was something about the design element and the good reviews that just sucked me in - I'm not hard to convince!

As mentioned, I absolutely love the designs of these boxes, I really like the illustration style and I think I'll actually be keeping some of these boxes for miscellaneous storage. 

The beauty bits are pretty good, I'm not over the moon with them but I didn't really sign up for this box for the beauty, more-so the lifestyle extras. The samples included are very generous and I'm looking forward to using them The conditioner looks nice and the full-size is quite pricey so hopefully it works well, again the hand cream looks lovely and I'm always using them so it's a nice addition. I've already used the lip and cheek crayon and it's a lovely coral pink shade with subtle gold shimmer running through it, it takes quite a bit of building up on the cheeks but gives a nice glow and gives an almost-matte finish on the lips with a subtle gold sheen which actually looks really nice. I'm glad I got the crayon because I think the other option was a lip balm and I'll definitely use this more.

I really like the included lifestyle extras, they just add a bit of extra whimsy and excitement to the box. The stickers are cute and I'll definitely use them - you can never have enough stickers! I haven't read the magazine yet but it looks interesting and it's actually quite thick and pretty good quality - quite different to the cheap little leaflets these boxes usually come with.  But the real star of the show for me is the t-shirt! I was a bit worried because it's one-size-only but it fits nicely and is quite roomy and comfortable on. The material is surprisingly good quality and I like the simple design, I've already worn it and think it will become a staple basic for me.

All in all I'm really happy with this box and I'm already looking forward to next months. I'm not sure how long I'll keep the subscription going, I'm attempting (badly) to try and save money, but it's nice for now.

Have you tried My Little Box before? If not would you like to?
