Happy Birthday Glossybox!


Glossybox

One of the UK’s much-loved subscription beauty box turns 2 this month, and I was lucky enough to bag myself a free Glossybox at their event in Covent Garden on Wednesday!

For some who don’t know what Glossybox is, it’s a subscription beauty box and you receive 5 gorgeous sample products delivered straight to your door! What more could a girl want?!

I joined Glossybox last year on their rolling monthly subscription for about two months and then being unemployed and all that palava I had to cut back on things I didn’t need. But I joined again last month, and did mean to blog about their special edition Daisy Lowe box, but have been so busy and didn’t get the chance. Forgive me? ūüôā

So walking around Covent Garden with my boyfriend and we saw loads of girls with Glossybox gift bags, I was intrigued but kind of forgot about it after a while. We carried on walking around and came across a HUGE line of people and there was this MASSIVE white box in the middle. I asked a couple of the ladies what they were waiting for and they all said¬†they were waiting for their free Glossyboxes. I wasn’t going to queue up as I have a subscription but my boyfriend literally pushed me into the line! And I’m glad he did! I got myself a free Birthday Edition Glossybox (plus I’ve got one on the way in the post)!

The Birthday Edition Glossybox came in a pretty pale pink with printed tissue paper to celebrate their 2nd birthday.Glossybox May 2013

I will try to write monthly blogs on Glossybox but with the demands of work and trying to maintain some sort of social life it gets a little difficult. I did rush this a little too as it’s now past 2am and I’m really tired :(.
