This month's box from Her Fashion Box has been my favourite so far which makes me extra excited to announce the special code valid for this month which allows you to get your first Her Fashion Box for only $19.95! Just use the code "May" at the checkout and enjoy the surprise box full of fashion accessories and beauty & lifestyle essentials that get delivered to your door each month.

And here is my before and after shot for the Batiste Dry Shampoo in Cherry. My hair went from greasy and flat to voluminous and fab within a few sprays. I also smell like delicious cherries which smells fresh and fruity, always a bonus. The Batiste Dry Shampoo is definitely a great quick fix on your bad hair days!

I also had the great pleasure of finally meeting the Founders of Her Fashion Box, Kath Purkis and Kerry Osborn at the Her Fashion Box Bloggers Brunch at The Grounds of Alexandria earlier this week. There was plenty of food and beautiful bloggers gathered around the HFB table which is always a surefire recipe for success. I'm so glad I got to spend time with the team and I look forward to seeing an endless blossoming journey ahead for HFB!

Today I was going to share with you pictures from Bellagio's exciting first official photoshoot. However, due to technical difficulties with my image upload function I'll have to save that for the next post. In the mean time, here are pre-uploaded photos for the 2nd Her Fashion Box for Classic girls!

My eyes twinkled this month when I saw tickets to Fashion Weekend Sydney. With the chaos of work and things at home, I haven't spent nearly enough time appreciating the art of fashion and how it brings people together so I'm excited to see what Fashion Weekend has to offer.

In the above picture I'm also wearing a silver cuff as well as Model Co's 2-in-1 lipgloss from this month's Her Fashion Box which includes gloss on one side, lipstick on the other and application mirror in the centre for easy application.

The lipstick and lipgloss combo creates a soft nude which goes perfectly with a nice tan! Only problem is, I've been as white as a ghost since I've been spending most of my time in the office. Which means my Bondi Sands tanning foam in Light/Medium couldn't have come at a better time. Below are swatches under natural light with no coat, one coat and two coats so you can see the fantastic streak-free gradual top it off, it smells of delicious coconut!

I've trialed the Model Co eyeliner this week and it works great for girls on the go. There's a sharpener on the cap and with a smudge brush you can easily use it as an eyeliner as well as eyeshadow. Below are swatches before and after the smudge brush was used on the first line test for the eyeliner.

As for the Schick Hydro Silk Razor, the only razors that I would recommend are those that come with their own moisturising cartridge. Otherwise, it can leave sensitive skin feeling dry, itchy and develop into ingrown hairs. These curved blades are also great for a closer shave and I'd definitely stick one in my next travel pack.

What I loved about this month's box is that it contained things that I've been meaning to treat myself to but I just haven't had time or I've been putting it off. It certainly served as a great reminder to have some "me time" which is the great thing about getting boxes delivered to your doorstep monthly.
