Makeup Box Shop Organisers: Review and Giveaway

I’ve wanted a Makeup Box Shop organiser since I saw it featured on The Belle Lumiere years ago. It’s become somewhat of a beauty blogger dressing table fixture, and being late to the party on most things- I’ve only just acquired one (thanks to the generosity of the people at The Makeup Box Shop). After using flimsy plastic organisers from Big W/officeworks/Kmart, I can appreciate why people will spend the money on a good quality, solid acrylic organiser.

The Original Makeup Box is a 5 drawer organiser with 4 smaller draws (3cm high) and a deeper draw (7cm high) at the bottom. The acrylic is thick and the unit is heavy (in a good way), sturdy, and well constructed.

I’ve organised my most frequently used makeup items in this box for easy access in the bathroom. The top drawer houses my powder eyeshadow singles, in the second drawer I have my cream eyeshadows, in the third drawer I have blushes, fourth drawer is for lipsticks and glosses, the deep bottom drawer I have put my small eyeshadow palettes. The rest of my makeup collection lives in my bedroom.

Price: $118

Availability: www.themakeupboxshop.com

Dietlicious Gourmet Delivery Service: Review

Dietlicious is an Australian company that specialises in home delivered healthy gourmet meals. I blogged about their 5 day cleanse a couple of years back, and was recently contacted by Dietlicious a few weeks ago about reviewing another one of their meal plans. It couldn’t have come at a better time- Phil was working interstate in the coming weeks and I was facing the prospect of cooking for one for an entire fortnight (realistically eating out more often than not).

I tried the 1800 calorie 7 day menu - which is designed to provide a healthy daily calorie intake for an average male (or a greedier than average female). I was delighted with how tasty and interesting the menu was- with wholesome breakfasts like Rye toast with hummus; hearty dinners like Arabian beef with sweet potato, tahini and almonds with side of herb couscous; and yummy smoothies and nibbles in between. My time-poor friend Jeff told me that he ended up ordering a 7 day meal plan after I told him about it)- he said everything was delicious and surprisingly filling.

It works well as a meal plan for busy individuals who want a balanced diet, and also works well as healthy ‘emergency’ meals to be kept in the freezer.

A couple of important things to note with these meals- you will need adequate freezer space for the 7 day meal plan. I couldn’t fit everything in my smallish freezer and ended up thawing 2 days worth of food in the fridge to begin with. Unless you have a humungous fridge don’t order a 7 day meal plan for two people. Also- don’t make my mistake of putting the veges in the freezer (I didn’t read the clearly marked instructions on the front of the packet)
