a tale of 3 boxes, the pink box

Just before Christmas did I receive my 3 boxes from Glossybox, boxes is gold, silver and pink. It was like Christmas Eve when I had them all 3 in front of me and could open them.

We, women, can react a bit silly at times. It’s a thrill to get the monthly box and before Christmas I also got the Anniversary Box (silver) and the New Year Box (gold) – who needs Christmas gifts????

Let’s start with the pink box, “Beautiful Dreamer” was the theme, but without the sleeping pills – the normal pink box that I receive ones per month.

Like always so beautiful wrapped, every little detail so tasteful … have already tried some products , a couple I given away and what left I put to the side for later use.

Haven’t tried the product yet – mostly because it’s such a pale pink shade and I normally use a much warmer and deeper shade, but I will give it ago – never know how it will come out well on the skin. If it doesn’t suit me – always a girlfriend that will like it.

“All little girls should be told they are pretty, ´
even if they aren’t.”
Marilyn Monroe

My cloud of music .. of course is “Beautiful Dreamer” – “Beautiful Dreamer” is a parlor song by Stephen Foster (1826–1864). It was published posthumously in March 1864.
The song has been on soundtracks for many movie during the years; Gone with the Wind; Duel in the Sun; Mighty Joe Young; The Death Collector; Batman; Young Frankenstein and TV series like; Little House on the Prairie; Our Gang; The Twilight Zone; Wind at MyBack; Leonardo; Bonanza and Shining Time Station.

“Beautiful dreamer, wake unto me,
Starlight and dewdrops are waiting for thee;
Sounds of the rude world, heard in the day,
Lull’d by the moonlight have all pass’d away!
Beautiful dreamer, queen of my song,
List while I woo thee with soft melody;
Gone are the cares of life’s busy throng,
Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me!
Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me!”

    Great post – love the pink box contents : BEAUTIFUL! 🙂

    Ah Viveka, joy & joy to you. Love your song choices as I read your posts. They’re great.

  2. Viveka, I love this entry 🙂 The music, the Marilyn Monroe comment and the Glossybox! Yours definitely is great!! What about the two other boxes? My silver one was pretty poor. And I haven’t received the gold one yet. Hoping that will be nicer 😉 xo

  3. Yeah! I love make ups! 🙂 I’m actually learning some tricks to enhance my features and I’m watching make up tutorials in youtube hihi greats gifts you got there! 🙂

    • Not a gift … I have to pay for boxes – but most of the time the products are very good. Tomorrow post is about the golden box .. wonderful products.
      What would we do without YouTube ????

      • Oh I see, so that’s what the prices are for 🙂

        I know! Praise for the YouTube inventor hahaha

      • I haven’t subscribed to a Glossybox yet, since I handpick all of my beauty products but hey, seems like a nice treat so I will subscribe 🙂

      • What I don’t want to use .. I have girlfriends queuing up for.
        One of the best products … I got is Garnier’s BB cream. Can’t live without it .. and with it no foundation needed.

      • hahaha see, that’s why I always handpick my products because normally with boxes such as those, you don’t need some of them.
        I also love BB creams! They always brightens your face and giving it a glow-finish look 🙂 mine is from body shop and the other one is from maybelline 🙂
