Good evening y’all! How you doing?
2017 is almost over!! Can you actually believe it?! I was going through photos on my phone from December last year. It felt like they were taken yesterday tbh.
Anyway, without further ado, let’s have a look at what was in the last box of the year 2017.
This month, I did not get the leaflet that normally comes with the box so I can’t give you any price for the products or extra details apart rom what I can physically see. Please bear with me.
1. Body butter supreme by BournBeautifulNaturals
Like all the products from BournBeautiful, this is handcrafted. It’s a lightweight body butter that melts into the skin very quickly.
2. 2018 Melanin planner from MyEbonyBox
Look at all this glitter! Look at the crown! That melanin too!!
I’m normally terrible at keeping up planners but 2018 I will try so much harder because the planner is peng! Plus, it is so mall (pretty much the size of my palm but a bit longer I would say) so it can fit any of my bags.
This year, I will be going around with this planner and a notebook whenever possible. maybe 2018 is the year I really get organised… who knows?
3. “My Melanin slays” socks by MyEbonyBox
I already own 3 pairs of socks from My Ebony box but these have a different message written on them.
“My Melanin slays” is nothing but the truth!!!
4. Hot chocolate on a stick by Choc-o-lait
Despite that fact that I don’t consume chocolate as I used to (if anymore), this is a brilliant idea: just stir it in hot milk! Mind-blowing!
5. “My Melanin slays… everyday” mug by MyEbonyBox
I don’t have anything to add apart that this is my second coolest mug!
6. Sleigh girl sleigh card by Cinnamon & Brown
I think I’m supposed to end those cards I get in the box but they are so cool that I keep them and collect them basically. Is that selfish?
7. Festive queen artwork by MyEbonyBox
” ‘this the season to be jolly falalalala lala lala”. The fro is too cute!
In 2018, I will be moving in alone so I want to have all my little art pieces together because they are cute and empowering. Can’t wait for that!!
8. Kwanzaa card from MyEbonyBox
If you don’t know, Kwanzaa celebrates the African-American or even the black culture. They celebrate a different principle daily for seven days. Every year when it comes on my timeline, one way or the other, I do a little bit of research on it. I’m glad I got this reminder from MEB!
9. Chocolate cutie earrings by MyEbonyBox
Maxi earrings (I really mean maxi) with the cutest message… I’m here for it!
10. “I won’t apologize for who I am” badge from Ibere Apparel
A black-owned business that I have bought from before. They do really cool pins and badges that cover my staff lanyard. So an addition to my collection. Whoop whoop!
And that is it. I hope you all had an amazing Christmas day or Christmas eve or Kwanzaa or holidays…. whichever on you celebrate!!
Get yourself ready for 2018 and pray to God it is an amazing, productive and successful one!
Be blessed and be empowered, always.
