I did unsubscribe from LHI after nearly a year because I wanted to be able to use all the beautiful samples and products I had recevied in the mail and since then, I've been keeping track of the latest LHI boxes from my friend Made up Maiden's blog. Their August Box was an absolute cracker and I was sorry to have missed out. I have decided to sign up for the September box and I'm sure it'll be a good one! I was also intrigued to see that LHI now has four different boxes you can sign up to now; the FaB box, the Bridal Box, the Women's Box and the Eco Box.
The Eco Box probably intrigues me the most because it is something different, it's delivered quarterly, and you will receive a value of around $100 for the $29.95 the box costs. I also like that it's Eco friendly and will feature natural products, something I'm very interested in. The fact that it's a quarterly box is also excellent because then I will definitely have time to trial the beauty products before another one arrives.
Style Rocks which is an amazing company. I spoke to the lovely Pascale who founded Style Rocks and she shared her vision behind creating a tool for women and men to design customisable quality jewellery online whilst still remaining affordable.
Regular readers of the blog will know that purple is my favourite colour so it was no surprise that I was instantly drawn to the gorgeous (and huge) Emerald Cut Amethyst Ring. Since you can customise how it looks on the designer page, you can choose if you want the band to be sterling silver, plated gold, real gold and so on. As you change the metal, emerald, cut and size the price changes instantly and the website is really easy to use. Best of all, shipping is free worldwide and it takes three weeks for your customised jewellery to arrive at your doorstep.
Inika is another very interesting company that I've heard so much about but have never tried before. The Inika Story is truly inspirational and it was also very interesting to learn about Inika's community engagement too. The company is located in Wollongong, NSW and has won numerous awards over the years.
I always use Mineral Foundation so it was great to learn more about Inika. Half of their range is certified organic and the other half is 100% pure mineral makeup. Inika's products are also vegan and certified cruelty free. Their range is so beautiful, the colours are magnificent and the Kabuki brush is the softest one I've felt before. I wish I had bought it on the night because it was that good.
Mobinails and they will bring their manicure fairies to your office, party or other occasion for a very reasonable cost starting at $16.50 per person. It's convenient, they are talented manicurists and they use OPI polish which is one of my favourites. They are located in Darlinghurst, NSW and can come to any nail emergency very quickly. I didn't have my nails painted thanks to my Bio Sculpture Mani (which is still going strong), but the Mobinails station was very popular.
After we had mingled and beautified ourselves for 40 minutes, it was time for a very interesting Q&A panel which Greta, the CEO from Lust Have It hosted. It was truly inspiring learning from these amazing entrepreneurial women and it was great to see how something can start out of something small and grow into a big successful company that keeps growing. These companies are also on different timelines and it was intriguing to hear how something went from humble beginnings to international success.
Kikki K Goals Journal that night. Here I am with Yasmin who is in charge of the new monthly Lustre Magazine from LHI, and Greta who is the CEO of Lust Have It. The July launch issue of Lustre is a cracker, and I'm not saying it just because it's got the same name of my favourite NARS Blush.
From Inika I received a beautiful vegan Shadow Brush and a certified organic Creme Eye Shadow in the shade Champagne. It is beautiful!
EVO is another great brand I've liked for a long time and the therapist calming shampoo will be perfect to use before applying a hair treatment to my locks. I have to confess that I had to google what the Pink Tiger Gauze Wipes were for because I haven't used them before. They promise to be good to clean your nails before applying nail polish and also to soak and remove gel polish with. It's a clever idea and since they are lint free they are less messy than cotton pads can be.
hair treatment a few weeks ago also contained some 24K.
There was also a ModelCo Fibre LashXtend Extreme Black Lengthening Mascara which has a handy mirror on the back for application. Lucky last was the Molton Brown Patchouli & Saffron Body Wash which brought me down memory lane. About five years ago the hotel I was working at stocked Molton & Brown as their amenities and I loved having a little sample here and there. Their body lotion is amazing so I'm excited to reconnect with some MB Patchouli & Saffron.
