It only seems like yesterday when I my life got a new direction. It happened nine months ago when my man proposed to me during our mini holidays and now I’m a married woman! It came round so quick, I still can’t believe it.
Weddings can be really crazy and the last week before the big day is definitely the wildest. All the stress and excitement comes together at the same time and therefore every bride needs her main crew around! My bridesmaids were two very special ladies. My sister and my friend. I wanted to surprise them before the wedding and do something very nice. I’ve searched for the very best products that would tell them how much they mean to me and how special they are to me.
So I decided to create personalised beauty boxes as a thank you for the all the hard work. I actually gave them their boxes a week before the wedding as I wanted them to enjoy themselves, relax and have the bestest time. I had to be very careful to make sure it will all fit into my suitcase
without going over the weight limit. Not easy for a girl like me! So, are you intrigued what beauty products I packed into the bridesmaid’s beauty boxes? Let’s start…
1) The Yorkshire Soap Company
I believe it was this year when they opened The Yorkshire Soap Company shop in Leeds and from that moment I’ve been lured into this shop every time I walk pass it. I also thought it might be nice touch to get them something lovely that is being produced locally. So it comes to no surprise, that their super cute soaps are featured in my bridesmaids beauty boxes. They absolutely loved it, just check out the cute packaging!
2) Yankee Candles – Ginger Dusk
Every girl loves Yankee candles. Whether it’s a quiet night in watching a movie or enjoying a bubbly bath with a candle lit in a corner, Yankee candle is a must. I was after a strong scent that can overflow the whole room but nothing too strong to give my girls headache. I hope I’ve achieved my goal with this Ginger Dusk Yankee candle (we are all lovers of ginger so I hope this explain the fragrance!).
3) Lush – Each Peach Massage Bar
Since we are talking a bath time, it was a MUST to stop at Lush. I swear I must have stayed there for hours just because I couldn’t decide what to get. I wanted something different to a bath bomb and I wanted a beauty product that would last. So I picked a Each Peach massage bar. This bar is full of uplifting citrus oils: lime, sweet wild
orange, mandarin and grapefruit and it’s meant to leave you feeling clear-headed and energised – just what I wanted for my bridesmaids!
4) The Body Shop – Honeymania hand cream
I’m a long term fan of The Body Shop. I believe in their values and support their “no animal testing” policy. I also adore their hand creams as they are revitalising with a very light refreshing scent. I’m a big fan of anything enriched with honey, so it was an easy decision. I went straight for the Honeymania hand cream and since The Body Shop also does 2 for 3 on their mini products, I managed to squeeze one for myself as well.
5) SuperDrug Face masks
Every girl’s dream is to achieve a flawless skin which wouldn’t be possible without good nutritional food. Nevertheless we have to help it sometimes, don’t we! That is why I picked this selection of beauty masks. Super drug does several types so any girl can pick their favourite one.
6) New Cid Cosmetics Lip gloss & Nails Inc Nail polish
only seemed fair to add some make-up products into the mix as well,
don’t you think? I planned on getting something that would go with my
wedding theme and I guess I was very lucky as I could get these as
freebies with July months magazine. Can you smell a bargain here?
All packed into beautiful boxes with: “Life is an Adventure” sign on the top. I don’t think I could have say it any better. They are the closest people to me, even though I live 1000 miles away. I miss them every day but life is an adventure after all and you never know where it takes you!
