When Rock and Religion emailed me last month to ask me if I'd like to be their September Blogger of the Month I was rather excited, not to mention flattered! I've been following them on Instagram for a while and one of the notable things I liked about the brand is that they have a real personality and interaction with their followers, something other brands often lack sorely. To be featured by such a customer-focused brand really excited me: they offered to send me a goodie box as a thank you for being their featured blogger, including an item from their collection to review - I couldn't wait for it to arrive!
When I first opened my goodie box, attached to the lid was this flyer describing their brand motive. Sounds pretty cool right? And the website doesn't disappoint: the moment you click onto the Rock and Religion website the first thing you see is an old-gold, sequined maxi paired with a black leather biker. I love the grunge-glam feel of it! Whilst the website is up-and-coming, you can shop for Rock and Religion at Spoiled Brat, The Light Room, or Pure London amongst other retailers. And now for the contents of my goodie box...
I loved the thoughtful inclusion of little notes explaining why the R&R girls thought each gift would be perfect for me. I was so excited to find this little nail kit in my box: I love nail art but have never tried this kind of 3D manicure. It will be particularly perfect as we head rapidly towards the party season, but I'll certainly be trying it out long before then!
I always look at these Montagne Jeunesse face masks and want to buy them as they look so appealing, but as I have sensitive skin I've always been too nervous to try them! Has anybody tried these masks, can you advise me on whether they are suitable for sensitive skin?
Woohoo! The girls over at R&R clearly have been reading my blog and know how I am a die-hard fan of Lipcote! This is a product that I buy over and over again, so I'm so pleased that they've treated me to a new one!
I'm an illustrator as well as a blogger so I can never have too many notebooks! I love the iridescent look to this, it appeals to my inner magpie!
Despite the fact that I love trying new beauty buys, if I was told I could only ever buy my beauty products from Lush I think I'd be fine with that! They are ethical, natural, cruelty-free, and these values are really important to me. Receiving a Lush bath ballistic in my parcel was the perfect final touch as I treasure my little hoard of bath bombs!
It was so exciting unboxing this gift as I had absolutely no idea what to expect in my goodie box, and everything was so thoughtful and perfectly selected. There was even a belated birthday card and badge which was so, so kind of them! As for the clothing sample? I'll be featuring that this week so keep an eye out for it: until then I've been featured over on their Tumblr so feel free to check that out!
