Taking a look at Pretty Peachy subscription box

This post contains gifted items.

The thing I love about the variety of subscription boxes that we have available to us, every order is a little bit like Christmas no matter where you are in the year.
With subscription boxes, you truly do not know what is inside until you have received the box, and your opening it up for yourself. I seem to get a rush of excitement and anticipation to find out what is inside when the latest box falls through my front door!

I am a big fan when it comes to subscription boxes and this month I have been lucky enough to partner with Pretty Peachy Co. These guys are a relatively new company who are providing us with some pretty awesome subscription boxes, “The PEACHY BOX containing 5 goodies, including skincare, haircare, makeup, jewellery and so much more!”. So I am very excited to be sharing with you guys my thoughts on the box that I received from them.

Before I start talking about how much I love the box I received from the Pretty Peachy team let me give you 5 reasons why I love subscription boxes.

The content is random, and a surprise every time.

I love receiving my subscription boxes on an unexpected day! another reason to smile!

Subscription boxes can contain items that are more expensive then the box itself! I love a good find!

Some items in the box can also be a try before you buy! as you can get hooked to new products!

They are just FUN. Plain and simple. Ok?

Talking inside the box…

Firstly I would really like to point out how pretty and eye-catching the box is. I really like the packaging, the peach and pastel-coloured box is a pretty awesome design! I love that inside they have included a selection of sparkly gems. The gems added the nicest touch to the box when opening up and seeing them glistening back at me.

This months box has been themed on ‘all about you!’ and The Pretty Peachy team have outdone themselves with this theme.


Firstly looking at the really cute pair of Cotton Grey Meow Socks, I adore these. The socks are themed on cats which are really cute. not the theme for everyone but I really do think these are cute. They are super soft to touch which is just what you want for a cosy pair of socks. I think these would be the perfect socky item for a day of self-care! The socks have been embroidered with the word ‘Meow’ with a cute white heart and paw print pattern on them. How bloody cute is this?

Next up in my box, an elegant looking ‘cosmetic storage bag’ a stunning black and marble themed pattern. I love the bag, it is really smooth and with a touch of gold for the zip! Also, I would say that its a really practical size, and something that I personally would definitely benefit from using. I’m pretty sure that anyone who is a fan of makeup would find a use for such an item. It is perfect as a makeup accessory.

The makeup included ‘Beauty Glazed Mars bright eye shadow palette‘. What an amazing little treat to have found! The Beauty Glazed palettes are awesome and actually, this one is a new favourite! The palette itself has a really sweet smell to it. Honestly, the fragrance had made the whole box smell amazing upon arrival. I love how bright the colours are inside. I tried some of the shiny looking eye shadows included in the Mars palette and they are so nice! My favourite colour is glittery pink (of course).

The makeup brush that has been included is another item that I am really impressed with. However I admit I can be so fussy when it comes to makeup brushes. I mean no one wants to feel a cactus running over their skin as they are applying their makeup right? Well, this brush is absolutely the right amount of soft! The bristles feel amazing against your skin. Having tried it now it’s perfect for applying liquid foundation, or even as a contour brush! Love it!

Finally included in the box I found a beautiful bangle bracelet decorated with hearts. I love bangles, they are the perfect finishing piece to any outfit. Pretty and girly.

The Pretty Peachy team have successfully produced a stunning subscription box that can appeal to many. I love how connected the products have been with their theme ‘All about you’. I honestly feel that it is well worth subscribing in the future for £15 a box. The pretty Peachy team will be including a massive range of product in each box. “you will never receive the same item twice no matter how long you subscribe for!”I cant wait to see what else Pretty Peachy will be bringing us.

What do you guys think? Are subscription boxes for you? what do you think about the range from Pretty Peachy?

​The Anti favourites tag

I am really pleased to have been tagged by Cassie at zombiegoddessbeauty.com to do this lovely anti favourites tag! I am quite excited, because I always seem to be talking about my favourites and what I like, that I pretty much never share my dislikes! so what a fantastic tag to be taking part in.

1. What is your least favourite lip product?

I really have a dislike for clear gloss, and I literally mean the gloss that is scentless, colourless, and does not even have a nice shine too it, It i just a sticky mess on your face, what is the point of that? If I want a coloured gloss I would buy a coloured gloss, not paint over a lipstick with clear goo.

2. What is your least favourite makeup finish?

When it comes to applying my make up, I prefer a natural look. I don’t like anything that’s going to make my face look to over the top. I swear it is a confidence thing. I prefer to use Matte products like matte mouse, as otherwise my face just looks an oily overdone mess.

3. What is your least favourite beauty product(s)? (Like highlighters, glitter, primer, Oil cleansers, hair masks, etc also be specific if you want)

It has to be liquid eyeliner. I mean I love the theory of liquid eyeliner but it really is just not for me, I can literally never get it to look good on my face, I always mess it up application every time I attempt it, I mean it normally results in massive panda eyes, or worse than that, Clown face from a creepy horror film! So I now just refuse to buy it or even try to use it.

4. What is your least favourite beauty trend? (Spider Lashes, Over Plucking Brows, Sharpie Brows, wavy lips, etc)

So there seems to have been this whole massive craze where it is really cool to have massive huge eyebrows, Like they are literally being drawn on double the size of their actual eyebrow, um… woah do you really need your eyebrows to cover the whole of your face? no this is not cool. I’m not saying that they should be plucked to fuck, but really the more natural the look the better I think.

5. What is your least favourite colour to wear on your lips?

I’m not sure that I have a least favourite colour impartially. However, I definitely prefer lighter or even brighter colours. I do not like to be too dark with my lip colour, so definitely no blacks, blues or dark purples. I wouldn’t say that I have ever been too adventurous when it comes to colour either. I own alot of nudes and alot of pinks.

6. What is your least favourite product(s) in your collection? (Like product regrets)

Ok I probably will sound really contradicting here because it truly is a love-hate relationship for me but when it comes to Primer, the only decent way of applying it is with my hands, and then they are left feeling oily, and icky, so that is why I would call Primer my least favourite product, that being said, I can not be without Primer, so really it is winning against me there.

7. What is your least favourite technique/step you skip?

Lip Liner. I guess I have never really seen the point to line my lips when doing my make up. Ironically I own tons of lip liner pencils, but mainly as whenever I have ordered Avon, they have come as a gift. I guess I don’t really see the point in the outline when you can do this with your lipstick, and your lip colour will cover the liner anyway. I am also pretty sure plenty of perfectionists will tell me I am wrong though.

8. What is your least favourite product you’ve ever tried?

I had to think real hard about this one, cause my collection is so random and broad that I do not even remember half the stuff I own.

I once Brought that crackle nail varnish. I hated that. It just made my nails look cheap and tacky, and I hated how rough it made my nails feel.

9. What is your least favourite/banned brand(s)?

I am actually feeling very defeated on this question! I don’t think I have a specific brand that I particuarly dislike for any major reason.

10. What product is at the top of your Anti-Haul (will not buy) list?

I am a strong believer that all my makeup and beauty products should be cruelty free, and not have been tested on animals, so I will not buy anything that has been tested on animals. Otherwise I’m quite optimistic and will try most things.

11. What is your least favourite TV show/TV show you are not interested in?

Medical shows! not one any particular program, but I really hate some of the medical shows shown on TV, I end up turning these off pretty quick. Like the latest ‘The toe bro’ I really can’t stomach watching peoples cheesey feet. I find it halarious that they have made these in to TV shows aswell!

12. What is your least favourite movie/movie you are not interested in?

I absolutely despise the ‘realistically recorded’ horror films. I literally can not watch the Blair witch project without cringing so badly, and needed to turn it off within 5 minues. I also really cant understand how this film was so popular, It wasnt realistic at all. It was cheesey, and not at all scary! I love horror, I just hate that style.

13. What is your least favourite book or book series/book or book series you are not interested in?

Oh crap! I really don’t think I can answer this one! Can I? ummmm, I like so many different styles of writing, I love most fiction and non-fiction! I do not think I have found a book that Ive disliked yet!

14. What is your least favourite genre of music?

Heavy Metal or Hardcore Dance music! I really couldn’t listen to anything heavy like that. I love easy listening, like acoustic stuff, as soon as I hear anything that is metal or hardcore I feel on edge! it feels more like a noisey mess, than music to listen too and it is just not for me. Enough said really.

15. What is your least favourite food?

It has to be tagatelli, I’ve never been a fan of it. My brothers favourite meal and when I lived at home with my parents I would literally dread tagatelli night.

16. What is your least favourite social media platform?

I think it has to be Facebook, I seem to just have facebook these days because I do. I don’t have a massive urge to post on facebook ever, but I like the groups and networking it can bring, so I use it, i just don’t love it. For me, it is all about Twitter and Instagram, I actually enjoy using those apps.
