So this weekend I tried to be the basic blogger and off pumpkin picking we went. First of all let's just start by thanking storm Brian for choosing the one weekend to rain on my parade.....quite literally!

went with the stupid idea that it will all look as glamorous as the beautiful Instagram photos I was wrong. With the special help of Brian the ground was soggy and muddy perfect combination for pushing a wheel barrow in. We took the kids and whilst they had a whale of a time jumping in the puddles and slopping around in the mud it's safe to say the adults didn't.

This months Birchbox is an important one in my eyes.

In honour of breast cancer awareness month Birchbox have teamed up with Coppafeel to help stamp out late detection of breast cancer. To do this? Simple they're promoting the signs that we should all look out for and how to detect any changes before it gets too late.

I'm a unicorn! Well according to Glossy box I am anyway and that's good enough for me. This month was the Mermaid vs Unicorn box and they decided what magical creature you'd be. I got the Unicorn box.

I love when they send out themed boxes and I have a thing with packaging! Any of these themed boxes I use them for storage afterwards as they're far too pretty to throw away. This month was a marbled blue and pink theme and it's too adorable for words!

As we know I'm currently deciding which beauty box is my favourite and I've got admit the last couple of Glossyboxes are swinging it that way (sorry other boxes you've got some stepping up to do!)

This box contains 5 full size products and for £10 I think that's amazing!

Inside I received a unicorn sticker (of course repping team unicorn!) The first thing that caught my eye was the Makeup Revolution mermaid vs unicorn eyeshadow palette. I am obsessed with their palettes already and use their pro palettes nearly every day so I knew I'd love this one just as much. I'd be looking for a palette with bolder colours for a while so I was pleased to see this one had 12 different shades all of which were bold bright colours. I know this will get a lot of use over Halloween that's for sure! RRP £4

Next up again a brand I love and use regularly but one I'd never seen in a beauty box was Sleek. I received their Creme to powder blush in the shade carnation. The packaging is what it says on the tin - sleek! It's a matte black compact and is perfect to throw in your make up bag. The shade is perfect for me. It's an off pink shade so know I'll definitely get a lot of wear out of this. I hate it when you end up with blushes that are bright pink and end up making you look like coco the clown on a summer vacation. This one however is right up my street. RRP £5.99

A much needed brush cleansing egg caught my attention next as this is something I've needed for a very long time. As much as I wash my brushes in the simplest way of running them under the tap with baby shampoo I was needing something a little tougher to help ensure they are as clean as the day I bought them. This silicone egg will help to brush cleaning easier and more effective and everyone knows this is one task we all want to be made easier. RRP £7.99.

Up next an eyebrow product and who doesn't love another brow product? This one is the Magic Brow eye brow pencil. A pencil is the one brow product I always struggle with as I do have very dark brows and find that they never do brow products in shades dark enough. I got the shade brunette and whilst the texture of the pencil feels amazing I don't think it will be dark enough (this makes me very sad!) This pencil is marbleised with two shades making the brows look much more natural. This alone retails at £14!

And last but not least is the Bang Beauty multi purpose cream. If you've read my blog for a while now you'll know I'm a massive fan of a product that hits multiple nails on the head. This one can be used as eyeshadow, a blush, a lip tint of a highlighter. The packaging is to die for, in a glass jar with a silver lid this screams high end. I got the shade dolce pink which I think would be a great lip tint shade for all year round. This retails at £19.50 more than the whole box and the postage and now do we understand why I rave about this box so much?

Be a unicorn in a world full of horses...
