GlossyBox May 2012 '1st Birthday' Edition

 During May I wasn't the only one celebrating their birthday- GlossyBox celebrated their first anniversary too! I was very happy when I opened my box and saw more goodies than usual.

 The body products I received were Noble Isle's Summer Rising Bath & Shower Gel and Neal's Yard Remedies' Rehydrating Rose Daily Moisture. Both do their jobs but I'm not fond of rose scented products and I much prefer my Body Shop products that are strawberry scented.

 I also got two perfume samples from Lolita Lempicka (Eau de Parfum & L'Eau en Blanc). Now, I haven't been overjoyed with most of the perfume samples I've had so far in my boxes but the sweetness of these perfumes is just me. I've loved Lolita Lempicka ever since I purchased the Eau de Parfum in the Paris Sephora and it also comes in a beautiful apple shaped bottle:

 The beauty products I received were Collection's Lasting Colour Gel Eyeliner in gold, which did not apply well with the brush that came in the box and is now being used as a cream eye shadow; and some fabulous False Eyelashes from Eldora which I can't wait to wear on a night out soon.

 As a bonus there was also a birthday balloon and a handy little mirror with the GlossyBox logo on it.

 I like having a box of surprise products every month but for £10 plus P&P when I am but a newly graduated student in need of a job and therefore money, I don't know how much longer I can live with this luxury. As I have a huge box full of products (made larger by the monthly GlossyBox contents) I've decided to stop subscribing as soon as I get enough points for my free box. Who knows, perhaps when I have my amazingly high-paid job that I'll completely love and will be given any day now (ha ha!) I will have used all my products up and will be able to afford the subscription again.

 What do you think I should do with my £10 each month instead of the GlossyBox subscription?

What I've been up to in May

 May has come and gone so quickly! The reason I haven't been blogging is that I was working on my final essays for university, and all the stress was worth it now that I've got my degree.

 I also celebrated my 21st birthday in May, my cake even had candles with multicoloured flames! I'll do a big haul post soon to show you what I've been buying over May, including birthday presents in case you'd like ideas on what to get for somebody (or yourself).

 Until then, here's the outfit I wore on my birthday:
