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? 🙂
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)!

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 :(.
