SUBSCRIPTION BOX-BEAUTY TEST BOX MAY 2014

I was always so jealous of all the subscription boxes that bloggers abroad got. So, when I found out that we had some here as well, I had to have it! We have only three right now and I decided to take this one(Beauty Test Box) because it's more personalised. You answer some questions to create your profile so you can get products that you actually want and can use. Because, if I got a cream for wrinkles, that would be a waste of money since I don't have any yet. This box costs 10€. The philosophy behind it, is that you get a box with 5-7 surprise beauty samples(or not so samples) each month so you can try new things and then purchase them if you like them. I wanted to get another one to make a little battle between the boxes, but the other brands were sold out.
 So, yesterday I received mine! A great way to pamper myself between all the overwhelming exams. You can imagine how excited I was! It's like opening a present! It came in a beautiful red box-drawer and this is so great because you can use it to store your makeup or anything you want. All tidy and nicely wrapped, yes I judge from the cover:P It contained a welcoming letter with the descriptions and the prices of the products. So here they are! 
-I'm translating below what was in the letter-
1.REN SCINCARE Moroccan otto Bath Oil-10ml(approx 3,36€)
Bath oil, with delicate scent from the expensive oil of the Moroccan rose, known for it's anti-stress qualities and the sense of harmony it offers.
2. FARDEL Pro make up Powder 3 in 1-4gr(18,50€)
Bronzer face powder 3 in 1. With specialised formula, without Paraben, anti-allergic. With extremely soft, light texture! It can be used as eyeshadow, bronzer on the entire body, on the lips and cheeks! 
 3. ADEN COSMETICS Nail Treatment-11ml(10,50€)
Nail treatment that can be used on bare nail but also as under the nail polish as a base. Visible results after 10 days of use in damages and immediate repair of the nail surface.
 4. AVON Limited Edition Perfume-30ml(35,60€)
Spray perfumes that you close your eyes and they make you travel in other worlds, scents that you link to faces and situations. Collector's packaging.
 5. Jessica Scarlet nail polish 667-7.4ml(approx 5,46€)
Long-lasting-high quality in red. Dries quickly and it's completely friendly to the environment since it doesn't contain toluene, formaldehyde and DBP.
 Generally I was very satisfied with my box mainly because I will use all the products I got. You can tell I need that nail treatment really bad. I liked that 3/5 of the products appear to be full size(maybe the smallest version) but still, all the sizes are decent enough see if I like them. I would prefer to get another polish color like a yellow or a white, since I already have some reds, but I can't complain. I just need to use the products and see how I like them. They all seem to have great quality and all smell really good(especially the perfume!). The nail polish smells nail polish-y but the nail treatment has a great smell! I like that they are eco-friendly and anti-allergic because I wouldn't put just anything on my skin. Who would? I know I'm going to enjoy this box(May's) and I will probably get the June box too!
It really surprised me how quickly this one sold out! The lines for the orders opened at 11am last Wednesday and when I checked again around 5pm it was sold out! And I could tell it was busy at 11 when I was placing my order because I was trying to checkout again and again and it kept showing an error page. I can get why! I don't know if the box is always this good or if I got lucky, but I will try to get some of others too and I will tell you what I think!
If the prices of the letter are accurate the value of box is approx 73,42
Do you guys get any subscription boxes? Which one is your favorite? Please leave a comment to let me know what you think!

JUNE MOODBOARD♡

I love love love mood boards! It's so fun to express yourself with pictures and colors instead of words. I don't mind writing, since it's one of my favorite things to do, but I know it can get boring for the others. Plus, since a picture is worth a 1.000 words, you would need hours to read this. So, instead, I found some of my favorite photos that remind me of summer. Colors, flowers, sea, sun, cold drinks and much more. Enjoy!

SKINNY BIKINI

Skinny Bikini
Have a nice month everyone! I can't believe how fast may has gone. I can't believe it's June already. I envy those of you who are going on vacation this soon, since I need to stay here due to some obligations. But, as I've said before, there is no need to get depressed if you have to stay in the city and work. You can always find some time to do the things you want and, if you are lucky enough to have the beach close to you, then I'm sure you'll have the chance to get that tan before you hit the beach. Especially if you leave somewhere warm, or overwhelming hot during summer, you need this. If you have your own pool, then I officially don't like you-just kidding. 
Skinny Bikini vol.2
But no matter where and when you'll go swimming, there is one thing you will most certainly need. Your bikini! I am a fan of one-pieces but they are simply not for everyday if you want a proper tan. I hope you didn't misunderstand the title. I obviously don't mean that you have to be skinny to wear a bikini! Just that I like the "skinny bikinis", with the thin straps etc.
Skinny Bikini vol.3
What post would be more appropriate for the first day of June, than one about bikinis? I wanted to have variety, so I chose a bunch of different stuff. Triangle, bandeau, ruffle, monochrome, tribal, floral... I wanted to add the ones from Triangl, but since I've talked about these before I thought that there's no need to. I know I went a little crazy with the Mara Hoffman ones, but can you blame me? They are so adorable and so perfect for summer! I like all these options so much and I can't chose my favorite. I want them all and they are truly a great motivation to keep working on that body and keep eating healthy!
Do you guys like these bikinis? Which ones are your favorites? Please leave a comment to let me know what you think!
