I’ve had a few people tweet me recently saying “HOW DID I NOT KNOW YOU HAD A VLOG CHANNEL!?” and since I don’t usually post my vlogs on my beauty blog I thought I’d do a quick post about the channel! I don’t have a schedule that I stick to, but I try to vlog as often as I can. If you want to see what happens ‘behind the scenes’, come boppin’ around London with me and of course lots of Reggie then…

box box box box You may have seen a few posts about My Little Box floating around the Blogosphere and today I thought I’d post about the ‘Energy’ edition! My Little Box is a little different to other subscription boxes because it includes not only beauty products, but also fashion and lifestyle accessories, illustrated items, a magazine which is really cute and interesting to read!

It come beautifully packaged and I could barely wait to open everything, I stopped myself halfway through to take some photos though! Since it’s the first box of the year the focus was about kickstarting the energy levels and inspiring motivation. Inside I was pleasantly surprised with a gym bag that says ‘good energy is contagious’ which is so true! There was also a calendar with inspirational quotes and adorable designs.

When it comes to beauty products, My Little Box includes items from well known beauty brands but they also have an in-house beauty range which means they create products themselves (in very cute packaging). In this particular box I received an energising face mist which helps refresh the skin (it smells quite light and has vitamin C and green tea inside). The Nails Inc. polish in the shade Tate was included (gorgeous red shade) as well as the Talika Photo-Hydra Day Cream which sells for around £30.00.

Overall I thought this was a great beauty box! I love that they included lifestyle items as well as beauty.
What do you think of My Little Box?

It costs £11.00 per month + £3.95 P&P.

Hey all!

My name is Kristen Long, I’m 27, and I’m a freelance illustrator and Graphic Designer. I’m a native New Yorker, and I moved to NYC to pursue my art career at the School of Visual Arts in 2007. Since graduating I moved to Astoria Queens, where I now live with my fiancé Andrew.

I can’t remember a time when I didn’t draw. Many interests have come and go like fads, but drawing has always remained a very important aspect of my life. I like to draw just about anything, but I tend to focus on patterns and portraits. These days my work is mostly digital, but I also enjoy painting, and printing.

Other passions of mine include, but are not limited to: watching movies, knitting, coffee of all kinds, beauty products (hair obsessed!), trying new foods, baking goodies, travelling, and the list goes on!

Follow me & check out my work!

In case you didn’t know about my tea obsession…now you know. I get asked about what tea I drink in almost every vlog and people have been requesting a mug collection video ever since this post! I thought I’d mash them all into one tea lovin’ video for you to enjoy (I hope you’re all drinking tea while watching).

Let me know what your favourite teas are. Who else is obsessed with tea!?
