my little box

Please forgive me, for I have been weak and gave in to temptation...but would you just look at that? Isn't it the most gorgeous thing to come through your post on a dreary January day?
After seeing a lot of fellow French bloggers showing off their "my little box" on their sites every month, I have finially decided to give this a go, with it being my birthday month and many other excuses I can't think of right now, I subscribed and got my first box in the post last week. Yay!

Each new box carries a different theme and is filled with beauty and lifestyle goodies. This month it's a "little wish box" and the lifestyle goodies are a gorgeous planner and some ribbony bracelets, and over on the beauty side I got a Ren micellar water. I use micellar water everyday and haven't tried this one, so it's great to give this new product a go. Next was a miracle day cream by Garnier, and then a very soft and lovely lip balm from My little box's own beauty range, My little beauty.

On the whole I really like the concept, and it's the ultimate feel-good postbox treat. And on the plus side, in a way it makes me feel a bit connected with the old country (I never really admit it, but I do miss you, France!) I think overall the best thing for me has to be the packaging, neat, pretty, goodies came in a lovely string bag, oh, and I forgot the magazine, too! So far, so good, folks. Let's see what February will bring. Can't wait!

♥ Maldives ~ part 2

Well I can't believe it's been a whole month since Christmas and the holidays, can you?
January is indeed dragging on a bit now, and to help warm your hearts and forget the gloom and doom I've put together a new Maldives post. This is time, foody that I am, I'm focusing on the a-ma-zing meals we've had while in the Niyama resort. It's easy to see why they got commended for their food and drink service.
There were almost too many highlights to mention here, so I'll let the pictures do the talking. Needless to say, I gave you a rare selfie here, but there is NO WAY I could show you my waistline after a week gorging on all this spectacular food. But hey, when in Rome...

♥ Maldives ~ part 1

For what seems like the longest time, I've wanted to go to the Maldives. After a long chain of events unfolded this Autumn the opportunity has finally come up for us to just go ahead one day and book the trip of a lifetime - I won't lie, we felt a bit giddy with excitement and  like we were doing something a bit crazy when we went through with it. We knew it was going to be a good, super, fantastic trip - what we didn't know is just how much we'd love it. I guess it just came at the right time, when we find ourselves at yet another milestone in our lives, and the trip gave us the opportunity to not only relax and enjoy a "real" holiday (not had many of those since Baby came into our lives) but also the perfect background to take a bit of deeper reflection. Niyama in the Dhaalu atoll provided the idyllic setting, we just brought our heads full of expectations, and boy, were they surpassed!
So, what better way to beat the so-called "Blue Monday" than to show you my version of blue? Enjoy the ride, I know we did :)
I'll be back soon with part 2 and plenty more details. Stay tuned!
