My Little Provence Box

I was so excited when this month's My Little Box arrived and I discovered it's theme was Provence. I adore France and Provence is utterly beautiful. As always the box is gorgeous...

This month's gifts included these adorable My Little Doll magnets. I had way too much fun playing with these and changing her outfits. 

Next were 4 lovely L'occitane travel size products (I'm really looking forward to using these!), a My Little Beauty eye shadow crayon and a really cool DIY bracelet. It's a lovely gold cuff that can be embroidered with any pattern of your choice, it's even beautiful without but I'm looking forward to adding my own touches.

And finally, I think my favourite thing of all is this beautiful Provence illustration and quote. I just love love love the illustrations that come with my little box, even down to the info leaflets, everything is beautiful designed and a feast for the eyes. 

As always it was such a treat opening up this month's My Little Box. I'm definitely craving some sunshine in the South of France now!

30 day French challenge

Hello lovely people!
I am back, following up my 'Try something new for 30 days' post. My 30 day French challenge got off to a great start. I've been wanting to improve my French for a long time but never seem to find the time, so I really enjoyed the purpose of trying to do a little every day. At the moment I'm using the DuoLingo app and I really like it. I managed a 19 day streak using DuoLingo every day but I have to admit it all went a little wrong after that! I definitely didn't manage 30 days straight but the challenge has really spurred me on. I've rediscovered my love for French and ordered a GCSE French revision guide, something I wouldn't have considered before I started my challenge.
For a little reminder of where it all started, here is the video that inspired me.

Now I'm off to decide on my next 30 day challenge... let me know if you do one too!
