Unboxing @MyEbonyBox|| November Edition

Hi everyone,

I hope this post finds you well!

After their first birthday, My Ebony Box got a face lift and it looks smashing. MEB truly glossed up. When they emailed me the new look of the box, all I could think was “yassss! Go on queen!”

I am a pageant princess 👸🏾 

Good morning  everyone!!

How are you?! How have you been keeping?! Seriously it has been ages. Or so it feels. I have not checked but it feels like a couple of months without a post or interacting with anyone here.

I have been absent here but doing the most on Instagram (@highnessempowershigness).
Back to the topic of the post: me, a pageant princess 👸🏾 !

@MyEbonyBox review || May’s Edition

Good morning! How are you doing? Happy new month!

Just wanted to say a warm welcome to the new followers/ subscribers and thank for the love and support to everyone (old and new)

And it is here! I let June finish without the review of May’s box… sorry! I can barely believe that we’ve gone through half of 2017… just like that! I will be doing a big reflection and review of my life goals and accomplishments of the past 6 months!


Anyway, let’s see what has been used in May’s box

Unboxing @MyEbonyBox #5||June’s Edition

June’s box has been here for more than a week now…. I’m terrible!!

For my defence, I posted the pictures on my Instagram page and before that, on my InstaStory. Therefore, if you follow me there, you already saw it all. Anyway…  How are you Highness?

What’s in the box?

Okay, so I know that this is not a piece of art but I thought it was cool so I framed it and it is now standing on my desk.


One thing I liked straightaway and for no particular reason was the yellow and orange combo. It looks B-O-M-B! Maybe it’s just me….

Pretty in powder pink.

Well, hello there!

I had not actually planned on going out this past Saturday, but I felt like getting dressed and putting makeup on. So I did. Here are some of the pictures that my almost personal photographer took for me (her insta)



Baby got back! Not really but since you could see my back, I thought it would be a good line…. sorry!



When I realised I had dried concealer on the back of my hand.


Me too, I can look for things that are not lost. See for yourself!



Bodysuit and (overworn and over washed) skinny jeans: H&M

Shoes: New Look

Clutch bag: Camaieu

Patra vibes because I know I am the queen of the pack.

And I’m out! Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have an amazing day. Stay empowered, highness.

@MyEbonyBox -April’s edition Unboxing || Spring has sprung 

@MyEbonyBox -April’s edition Unboxing || Spring has sprung 

I have been gone forever. My last post was a short review of my February box from My Ebony Box. I have a very busy beginning of April then I was away for a week (post coming… keep you eyes peeled)


I have many posts coming up this second half of this month.


I came back to England yesterday (Resurrection Sunday) and I was really excited because My Ebony Box was here waiting for me. Without further ado, let’s go through what was sent this month.




1- Choc Plus – Hot chocolate marshmallow and chocolate. RRP is said to be £2.

Now, the thing is I don’t drink nor eat chocolate as much as I used to but this is nice to try. I will probably be sharing with friends.


2- Cream of nature– Açai berry and keratin strengthening hair masque- RRP £1

I normally like the products from CON. This is a new fragrance. I will only be able to use it when I remove my braids. I will keep you posted in my review of this box, next month.


+ 2 samples (shampoo and conditioner). I don’t have a whole lot of hair but I already have a feeling that will not be enough- especially the conditioner.


3- Choctone postcard by Ramses Schweizer- RRP £1.50

Indead, “my chocolate comes in all shades”. Love the message behind it! If yo are familiar with the Pantone concept, you should understand this easily. Another piece to frame!!


4- EWA Nutrilicious face mask RRP £1 on the leaflet but £1.50 on the insta page. 

It’s a mix of clay , coconut powder and some other powder. It is to be mixed with water of milk. I will try both ways and review it.



5- MEB– Handmade African bangle RRP £5

It’s MEB’s own brand. I love Ankara everything.I am VERY into that because they tend to be really unique.


6- MEB- Ebony noir candle. RRP £4

I’m not trying to be funny but this one of the nicest smells ever.  Spicy, woody and floral is EXACTLY what it smells like. I didn’t think I would like it but my mistake!! I had stopped burning candles a few months ago but I’m gonna get back to it because it is always nice. 


7- Bea skincare– vitamin infused Konjac sponge set £RRP £22

According to the leaflet in the box, it’s the part 1 of it. Next month, we should receive prat 2. I want to believe it is the Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser from the same brand but I could be wrong.

I’ve had Konjac sponges before and usually enjoyed using them. We shall see if it makes any difference that it is vitamin infused!

For a grand total of £37-worth this is April’s box. Again a variety of products that I will surely enjoy.

Final thing in the box was a discount code to use on the website AfroHairSolutions.


Support and empower for Highness surely Empowers Highness.

There is greatness in you, Highness👸🏾👑✊🏿

Short review of @MyEbonyBox || February’s edition

Short review of @MyEbonyBox || February’s edition

Hi all! Happy Monday! How was your weekend?

I mentioned in my recent unboxing of March’s box that I would  review the box from February, so here it is.

Here is a recap of the content- you can find the full article with all pictures here:

1- A mug from My Ebony Box. – RRP £10USING IT!- It is awesome! I mean it looks fabulous. I’m keeping at home as I already have a mug at work.

2- A lipgloss from Fashion Fair– RRP is £15. USING IT! and I don’t even like lip glosses like that. I normally prefer actual lipstick because I don’t like looking like I have just eating a bowl of spaghetti. Plus, my lips are 2 different colours, therefore I tend to cover it all or nothing.

3-Some dried strawberries called Strawberry Chewies from Vegan Alex– RRP £1EATEN!– If I am 100% honest with you, I had finished the pack by the time I had type the unboxing post. The were really nice! I’m making note to get some more.

4- A couple of samples from Shea & Coconut with omega 3. It is a packet of their smooth edges and their curling custard. USED! Note fore self: don’t sleep on the samples you are sent!! Then can be bomb. That w`s the case this time. I ended up buying the full size of the smooth edge. It costed 7 quid am!! SEVEN QUID! I’m glad it is doing what I want it to do cause I would not be happy.

5- A sample of avocado oil from Charlenes Hairipy. USING IT!- I have been using it whenever I remember.

6- Some art work from Caldey Muffet. USED IT!- I found a frame for it, it is currently crowning my desk.

7- A sample of herbal tea from Pukka. USED IT! As I have said before, I love tea an it was a pleasure drinking this one out of my new mug YAY!

8- An AMAZING Melanin choker from Inoir. – RRP £6 USED IT! -many times even. It travelled to France with me. I love how I had a full on convo about melanin with a melanin deficient friend because of it #EducationIsKey!

9- A calendar from Imani Academy. USING IT! Having the different celebration at the back is brilliant and useful. Need to get into the colouring though.

10-This book – Geraldine’s Pearls of Wisdom Wisdom for women by Marcia M.– RRP £2.75 READ IT and will read it again soon. You can get through it in a matter of an hour- depending on how fast of a reader you are.


VERDICT: the content was a amazing as it was varied and included food… that’s always a good thing. I can imagine how hard it is to find great brands to work with whilst trying to please so many different women.

It is way more than a beauty box or a haircare/ skincare one. For this reason, I want to say it is better than My ChocoBelle box that I used to received until they shut down.

Finally, I don’t really have to get out of my way to use the items so that I’m loving!

Do check them out if you are a woman of colour. Remember where you saw it forest lol. They ship internationally so it doesn’t really where you are- of course confirm with them before buying anything.


I pray you have an amazing, blessed and productive week ahead.

Remain empowered, always. You are Royalty 👑✊🏿👸🏾
