Summer is officially here in the UK and with the sunny weather (hopefully) on it's way, What better way to start the new season than a box full of goodies.I love a beauty boxes, receiving one is like a little gift to yourself every month. The limited edition boxes are without doubt my fave as you can see what your going to get and know whether it's for you or not.
