Brightening the Mood

24 April 2015



ARE YOU READY FOR AMSTERDAM PART.... I'm kidding. If you want to read my posts about my trip to Amsterdam, click here: part one, part two, part three, part four otherwise keep reading


her velvet vase, mood box number 4!!


You may remember my first ever order with Her Velvet Vase where I bought a 3 month subscription: ie three boxes would be sorted and shipped to me over the course of three months. Well, I, and my college friends, all really loved the uncertainty of what my next box would bring so...  I ORDERED ANOTHER SUBSCRIPTION!

That's right! And not only that, It's a 6 month subscription this time!!

But I digress, you may be wondering what happened to my February mood box, and tbh I didnt feel like it was worth my writing a post about. I'll include some pictures at the end though so don't worry :)

These were my mood choices for the month of march:






And I also chose this gorgeous picture of the ever beautiful miss Lee Chaelin as my style icon

On the 19th of March, I got an email saying my order had been dispatched  (but it had no tracking # so I emailed them about it)
On the 20th of March, they responded saying they will send me the tracking # as soon as they get it from the post office
On the 25th of March, I received my tracking #
On the 8th of April, I received my customs letter (£25.24)
On the 9th of April, THE DAY OF DELIVERY... My parcel did not arrive. It wasn't even loaded to the delivery vehicle, I checked with the twitter customer service team who are really helpful.

The woman at Edinburgh depot apologised and asked if I'd be in the next again day, I said yes but only untl 3.30 (I had to go to work) so she told me "I'll make sure your parcel arrives by 2.30"

On the 10th of April.... Still no sign. It was 3.00. I took to twitter again. I got the helpful service and then the same woman phoned and told me it would be with me the next day (Saturday. Free saturday delivery yay!)

On the 11th of April MY PARCEL FINALLY ARRIVED.

So... Almost a month after my order was dispatched, my parcel was finally here, and I was so excited I couldn't contain it!

A few things to point out first:


Just a little bit damaged... THANK YOU, PARCELFORCE



SO ANYWAY ARE YOU READY FOR MY FOURTH MOOD BOX ORDER?!!
I'VE BEEN DYING TO SHARE THIS FOR OVER A WEEK NOW, AND I RUSHED MY AMSTERDAM POSTS (which quite frankly was taking forever anyway) JUST TO MAKE THIS MY NEXT POST FOR YOU ALL!!!



I have no idea whats going on recently with my pictures being the wrong way around. Anyway, this is how it was presented, it was so neat and I didn't want to untie the bow - I'm pretty sure it's still tied like that!

 top

shorts

necklace


extras


 bag


When I first saw the Nivea sample I thought it was normal moisturiser before I read it. I was also a bit disappointed about the gym/spa giftcards because I'd love to have used them, but unfortunately Singapore is a bit far away from Scotland :( :(

 I am researching Singapore for my Graded Unit in my HNC year of the Travel and Tourism course I'm studying though!! And I'm so, so tempted to book myself a flight and just GO. I'm starting to think I'd love to live there, but I'm going off topic..

Here are pictures of the final outfit. Again, I was using the Forever 21 changing rooms:




Also, apparently Google plus makes gifs out of my photos...


Do I love this outfit?  YES.
Will I wear it again? MOST LIKELY.
Does it show how big my thighs are? DEFINITELY.
Seriously, that was my biggest down point.
I'm pretty short, and I don't have the privilege of having SUPER SKINNY legs that I'd LOVE to have, and it's a huge thing for me, because I'd like to lose a bit of weight... Not much, just enough to maybe fit clothes better??? Idk..

But anyway, yes, despite the struggle of getting this order to me, I really adore what the team picked for me.

Now, I told you that I'd post about last months mood box!

So, last month was the first month that what I got wasn't a full outfit and it really threw me. I loved the top, but the dress wasn't the best look on me. I liked the necklace and the bag but none of it seemed... To go well with me.










And I didnt choose any mood for next month... So this will be EXCITING!

Until next time, be excellent to each other.
