I have spoken about the Glitterati multiple times on this blog so hopefully you will know all about it by now. If not here’s a quick explanation- the Glitterati is a monthly subscription box in which you get at least £50 worth of awesome hair accessories. You also get access to an exclusive and super fun facebook page where you can chat and hang out with the other glitterati gals as well as a special gift on your birthday. So yeah, basically it’s fucking rad as balls! To find out more click here,and if you do decide to sign up quote my name (Emma Robinson) when signing up and we will each get a voucher to spend on the Crown and Glory site!

Anyway, August 2016 marks the 2 year anniversary of the Glitterati! 2 years of amazing glitter filled fun! I have been a member since September 2014 so nearly the whole time. I’ve had so much fun receiving my box each month and planning how I’m going to wear all the fabulous pieces. The facebook group has really been the cherry on top of the mega pie that is the Glitterati. So many amazing women all in one place sharing selfies, achievements, plans, worries, pet photos, the list goes on. It has become so much more than just a subscription box. I have had the pleasure of going to five different Glitterati meet ups now. Each one has been so much fun! I’ve made so many friends and taken so many selfies. Seriously, this group has been life changing and given me so much confidence so thank you so much to Sophie and Gareth for bring us all together and of course to the amazing souls who make the Glitterati what it is- a family.

On to the unboxing! I’m really getting into filming videos for youtube lately so I decided to film an unboxing video. I had so much fun filming it… not so much fun cleaning up… you will see what I mean if you watch the video below!

Happy Birthday to the Glitterati! Here’s to another year of awesomeness.

This is a little bit later than intended, oops! But it’s deadline season for us uni students so I’m sure you all understand. This is a bit of a mixed bunch and not very big as I have been trying really hard to be careful with money so I have more for the summer. I hope you enjoy!

Beauty 

First up we have Barry M Sunset daylight curing nail varnishes. I wrote a whole blog post about these rad little guys so I won’t go into too much detail here but check that post out. All I will say here is they freaking rock! Next we have the Body Shop Vitamin E Eyes Cube which I got in limited edition packaging hence why it looks different in the link. This little tube has been a life saver lately after long nights getting shit done. It’s kind of like a chunky twist up lip balm but for around and under your eyes. It’s so cooling, moisturising and refreshing and leaves you looking much more away and glowy. I would defiantly recommend it’s cooling properties as we come into the summer. Last in the beauty category we have The Comforter Perfume by Lush. This smells amazing but sadly you cannot currently buy it as it was a Lush Kitchen exclusive around Christmas time. It is perfect for this time of year; super sweet and summery. Keep your eyes on the Lush Kitchen though because you never know when it might come back.

Crown and Glory 

Yet again we have a whole section dedicated to the awesome hair accessories of Crown and Glory. I have been loving the April Glitterati Box, so gosh darn pretty. My most worn piece from this box has to be the Not a Lotta Rosie Headband in Icecream.  I already have the medium version of this but having the small version as well have been awesome! It works really well with braided bunches I find. The light blue glitter bunny ears are also cute as hell and I will be wearing them all year round, not just at Easter. If you want to join the Glitterati then you should totally put me, Emma Robinson, as your referrer and we both get a £10 voucher! How cool is that? Here’s a link if you want to check it out.

Food and Drink

Bringing in a new category, oh yeah. I bought this Baobab Fruit Powder when I was last at The Eden Project and it is great! I opted for a big jar because it works out better value but you can buy in in smaller quantities. You can add it to smoothies, juice, water, pasta sauce, anything you want really. It has a citrus taste which is nice to spruce up most things. It is considered to be the ultimate super fruit offering loads of essential nutrients. I find it gives me a similar energy boost to coffee but without the come down. So woo to Baobab! Next we have the Nature Valley Canadian Maple Syrup oat bar. I love these, they are my go to snack when I am out an peckish. They are lovely and sweet so are a great healthy alternative to a chocolate bar. You can get them pretty much anywhere in the UK in single bars or multipacks. Finally Alpro Unsweetened Almond “milk”. I’ve loved this for ages as I don’t really like cows milk so I thought I would pop it in here again this month. Again you can buy it in most supermarkets. I have tried other brands but this is by far my favourite. It is light, almondy but not overpoweringly so and tastes great on Cheerios.

Stickers!

Last but by no means least I just had to include these adorable stickers I bough from The Tiny Hobo on Etsy. Look how cute and body positive they are?! I love them so much I ordered two more packs. I mainly use them in my journal at the start of each entry and they just make it look much more awesome.

And that is that, I hope you like the things I’ve been enjoying this month.
