Novembre: My Little Sweet Box

Call Me Katie - My Little Sweet Box November 2015 by My Little Box UK - 016

According to this month’s My Little Box: life is short, eat dessert first. So, while I was writing this post I skipped my dinner and went straight for the double chocolate chip cookies I’d made earlier! (Sorry, I forgot to snap a pic before I ate them all!)

The biggest difference this month is that the box isn’t the usual sturdy cardboard; instead it’s a nice metal tin that wouldn’t be out of place carrying biscuits or brownie squares to the office or a friend’s dinner party.

This month My Little Box teamed up with food blogger Mimi Thorisson, who lives is Médoc, France, has written a cookbook, hosted a cooking show in France and is setting up a pop-up restaurant in her family home. November’s My Little World even includes several of her kitchen secrets and, in place of the usual beauty tutorials, a full page spread of her own recipes…

The next item I noticed in my box was an envelop with a sheet of jar decals with quirky captions to help bring a bit of My Little Box personality to kitchen organisation.

I’m not sure if I love all of the phrases, but I do like having little details like this for guests to notice.

Currently the jars in our kitchen already have labels, but I’ve set these aside for the next time we do a bit of a kitchen upgrade!

This month we didn’t receive a print, but, for the first time, we’ve received a print out summing up the box and giving a bit more explanation to the theme. In my opinion it’s a really great touch! (And as much as I love the prints, I am running out of space to hang them up / places to put them…)

Perfectly on theme, this month’s lifestyle extra is a chef’s apron. I didn’t take a picture of it spread out because it was so wrinkled and the autumn sun was setting so quickly, but it’s a half-apron and will come in handy for Thanksgiving this week.

And of course, the staple of My Little Box: the three monthly beauty products. While they don’t exactly fit into the kitchen theme, they are lovely pieces for autumn.

We received a Yves Rocher eau de parfum, Dr Pierre Ricaud neckline lifting cream and a My Little Beauty hand cream.

The Sweet Hand Cream by My Little Beauty is sure to come in handy this season. It claims a sugary sweet scent and a marshmallowy texture, and while I’m looking forward to giving it a go I’m also waiting to peel back the foil seal until I’ve used up at least one of my already open hand creams. (Not fun, I know, but it is practical…)

The Dr Pierre Ricaud Neck & Décolletage Lifting Cream is formulated for the fragile skin of the décolletage and neck, and is meant to fill in lines and wrinkles for smoother skin that appears lifted.

I love the smell and it feels very lightweight without a sticky residue. While I haven’t tried it out for an extended period of time yet, considering my age I’m not expecting the most significant results. (But moisturised skin is no bad thing regardless!)

This is the second time I’ve received a Yves Rocher product (in December last year I received a Yves Rocher eyeshadow), but I won’t complain! The brand has a cult-like following and for good reason.

The Bois Sensuel L’Eau de Parfum is a very feminine scent with vanilla, patchouli and iris, but with woody notes and balmy aromas. It reminds me of something one of my elementary school teachers wore, and I feel like a Real Grownup when I’ve got it on. I think a 50ml bottle may be on the cards for me when I’ve exhausted this 5ml sample size…
