Pink Parcel August Subscription Box.

Six months have gone by since having Willow, my body and hormones seem to have gone back to normal and unfortunately that means the ghastly and horrid return of the period! Dum! Dum! Dum! Can’t say I was particularly thrilled about that but at least it’s a sign that all is A-ok down there so I suppose I’ll forgive it. This also meant I got to re-subscribe to Pink Parcel! Yay! Receiving something like this once a month when your periods are just making you feel pooey, is just what you need to brighten your day. I highly recommend it! So, without further a do…

Look what goodies were in my Pink Parcel box this month! Other than the usual monthly “necessities”, I got: 
❣Tea pigs sachet of Matcha Green Tea (which is lovely by the way! I’m drinking a cup as we speak!)

❣Jealous Sweets – £2.50 

❣Estella Bartlett bracelet – £12.99

❣Sunkissed Shimmer Dust Brush (bronzer) – £4.99

❣So Susan Haute Light Pencil (highlighter) -£14.95

❣Cougar Beauty 24 Hour Liquid Lipstick – £15.00

❣Sass Intimate Perfect Skin Concentrate (helps to prevent ingrown hairs and reduce hair regrowth) – sample but normally £12 for 100ml

❣Emily Fruit Crisps, Crunchy Apple. These are actually quite nice. Very sweet tasting. £1.49
If you’re interested in subscribing to Pink Parcel each month (or maybe for your daughter? Which I think is a lovely idea), it’s £6.99 for the first box then £9.95 thereafter. Plus p&p.

My Pink Parcel Box has arrived!

If you remember, I’d wrote a blog post a few days ago about a subscription box called Pink Parcel. It’s a must-have for *that* time of the month. We women can get a bit down or grumpy (or both) when it’s that time and need a little cheering up. So in walk Pink Parcel to do just that!

My Pink Parcel arrived this morning – just in time!



I love how classy and sophisticated the box looks. Is it weird that it randomly reminds me of Audrey Hepburn?



Still in-keeping with the classy and sophisticated look. The two boxes that say for bedtime and for later and the pouch that says for now are all the necessities you need for your period. The pouch is a great idea! Beats having pads or tampons floating around in your bag or accidentally having the zip undone on the inside pocket of your bag and someone seeing *coughs* that’s not happened to me, honest 😉! They’ve provided me with more than enough pads to see me through my period. 😊

The For You box was, of course, the box I was most excited about. Here’s what’s inside:



And a better look:







Contents:

Bubble T’s Lemongrass & Green Tea bath bombs – Great thing about these are they are paraben, SLS & SLES free so no nasties yay!

Perfectil Triple Active skin, hair & nails capsules (1 week supply). – It’s been a while since I took supplements for my skin hair & nails so I’m super happy I got these to try out!

Tea pigs Chocolate flake tea (1 tea bag). – I am sooo gonna try this in a minute! Sounds yummy!

Bandzee – Great! Not worn these before so shall wear one tomorrow.

Paw Paw Payaya Moisturising Balm (25g/.88oz. Contains no parabens or sulphates. I *think* this is full size). – It’s weird coz a the other day a fellow blogger had mentioned one of Paw Paw’s balms in their post and I remember thinking that I’d like to try it … And now I can! Yay! I tried it and it is really moisturising to your lips. I’m loving it so far!

O.P.I Nail Lacquer in “I sing In Color” (Full size). – You might not be able to tell from the pic but this is a dark purple colour. Yay my favourite! So pleased I got this as I really like O.P.I nail varnishes! 😊

Divine’s Caramel Dark Chocolate (40g. Standard choccy bar size. Fairtrade.) – Id seen this chocolate on a fine foods website recently and was really wanting to try it! It’s like Pink Parcel can read my mind! I shall be tucking into this tomorrow as my best friend’s son gave me a Creme Egg today so that’s my chocolate fix for the day lol.

All in all, I loved all the products. I was so impressed by what I got and it really has cheered me up immensely! So thanks so much Pink Parcel for making my day! And for making that time of the month a little more bearable! 😉

What do you think? Have any of you guys got a subscription with Pink Parcel?

Pink Parcel – A girl’s best friend!

If only a guy could be as thoughtful as Pink Parcel! This is a subscription surprise box centred around *that* dreaded time of the month. Not only do they make sure you have all your necessities, but they also send you treats to cheer you up and make you smile, too! This has to be the sweetest thing ever! It would be a perfect subscription box for a teen, too. Darn them not being around when I was a teen. I probably would have cried at the thoughtfulness had someone gifted it to me (yes, I was one of *those* emotional teens …. Still am lol)! – After delving a bit further into it, there is actually a “teen parcel” option!

How it works:
Step No 1 – Select a brand (tampon/towel brand)
We supply all your favourite brands so you won’t have to change a habit of a lifetime.

Step No 2 – Tell us your dates
Let us know when your period is due. Don’t panic if you’re not sure, you can change the dates at any time.

Step No 3 – Receive your parcel
You’ll receive your products and treats 3-5 days before your period starts each month.

Step No 4 – And Relax!
Now it’s time to pamper yourself and make your time of the month a little bit lovelier.

Here’s what they say is included:

TEA
because a cup of tea solves everything!
SOMETHING SWEET
to help hit that craving spot.
TAMPONS
brands you know – plus something new.
TOWELS
all your favourite brands
BEAUTY PRODUCTS
for that all important pamper time

And pssst here’s a sneak peak at this month’s box (look away now if you don’t want to see):

The first box is £5.95 and then it’s £9.99 thereafter (p&p included!).

This is such a wonderful idea and is definitely something I’d be interested in getting. I can’t stop gushing at what a sweet, sweet thing it is!
