The Parcel by Marie Claire: Spring Edit 

YASSS! My Spring edition of The Parcel has arrived! To be honest, as I have an annual subscription (paid for up front), I totally forgot that it was coming! What a pleasant surprise!!


I had high expectations whilst opening this box up! I had a think about what kind of items would be included in a Spring themed box and my mind gravitated towards pink lipsticks, floral scented perfume and oils – natural products. Continue reading

bellabox: June 2016 Unboxing/Review

Hai friends!

Guess what arrived!? My June bellabox! If you have me on snapchat (bymeneka) then you would have seen me unbox this baby liiive! And if you missed it – just keep reading.

With June being the first month of winter, this month’s theme was “Winter Switch”. Even before opening the box, I predicted that this box would be full of skin care because Winter dries out the skin like crazy!

I loved this month’s box! There were no coloured complexion products or any flimsy sachets that would never get used. All the brands included are of top quality and are things I will actually use!

So what’s in the box?

Marie Claire’s The Parcel: Winter 2016

Hey friends!

So, I usually film my unboxings but I refuse to get out of my monkey onesie and don’t think it’s “socially acceptable” to post a video of myself in it… so blog post it is!

I’ve spoken about The Parcel sooo many times before but as a quick summary – curated by magazine Marie Claire, quarterly & pretty deece!

I received my box this morning and without further-a-do, here’s what’s inside!

bellabox: February 2016 Unboxing/ Review

Hi there!

So, as you may have noticed, the number of subscription box services have multiplied like crazy over the past couple of years. They have a box for EVERYTHING! But of course, I like me some beauty boxes.

I was lucky enough to receive a beauty box from Australian Subscription Box service Bellabox! Bellabox was one of the first sub boxes on the market and have ties with some amazing brands.

The Parcel by Marie Claire: Winter Edition

So apparently I was one of the very first people to receive the box this time around! Too bad I wasn’t able to blog about until now – after exams. Grr! How’d the Winter edition go? I loved it. There are mixed reviews floating around but I can safely say I loved it. The Autumn edit was a bit of a bummer for me – there were complexion products and they just did not work on me as they were way too light. I loved the Winter edit so much, I signed on for another 2 years lol whoops 😛 Let’s take a look inside! Continue reading

BellaBox, October “Birthday Box” 2014 Review

Hi everyone. My name’s Meneka and I’m a beauty box subscription-oholic.
*Hi Meneka*

Look ok, I KNOW I complain about my beauty boxes every single month, and every single month I get told “If you don’t like it, then unsub” but I never do in fear of unsubscribing just as they come out with an amazing box. But this month really just pushed me over the end. As I post this, I am officially no longer subscribed to the rubbish that is BellaBox.

But let me show you what I got:


I got: Rimmel Apocolips, Nivea Stress Protect Deodorant, Pantene Shampoo and Conditioner, Kester Black Nail Polish and Model co. and Mor Samples. Continue reading

Lust Have It, August 2014 Review

Finally got my Lust Have It Birthday Box aaaaaaand I LOVE IT! I was actually going to unsubscribe last month but I’m so glad I help on to it for another moth!

Last months’ LHI box was a huuuuuge let down for me. Many of the items were pointless, cheap and down right nasty. So receiving 4 Full Size products this month was a great turn around.

This month, I received:


Eleven Australia’s Miracle Hair Treatment (Full Size) RRP: $24.95, Essenzza Fuss Free Naturals Facial Cleansing Wipes (Full Size + Sample) RRP: $6.95, BioElixia BodyShaper Stretch Mark Diminishing Cream (Full Size) RRP: $39, Marsk Eyeshadow Brush Pro-Line (Full Size) RRP: $28.95 and Bioderma Ceraline Pro (Sample Size) RRP: $29.99.

Overall Value: $104.75 (woohoo!)

BellaBox, August 2014 Review

After taking FOREVERRRR to arrive, my BellaBox finally came!! Yay! (I was too excited to even do an unboxing video!!)


So this months’ box marks the 5th month I have been subscribed to Bella box. And, each month I PRAY that I receive at least ONE of the cool things that have been featured as an item in the box. But, instead, I get things I will never use such as anti-ageing cream or foundation samples that are 50 shades too light. But I admit I was pleasantly surprised by this months box!
