Happy Box

Our May Box Reveal! Happy!

Well, I admit I have not been keeping up with my blog posts, and it’s definitely something I want to keep on top of. I think we sometimes get so busy, or assume everyone is on our social feeds, that we don’t need to update here much, which isn’t really ideal! I apologise, and I commit to publishing at minimum one blog a month – and to reveal what our latest box is here first – I mean, this is the best place to see it, and then you can sign up. Right there – all on the same page. Magic! Or should I say Happy!

Be Happy, Be Bright, Be You.

So May. It snuck up on me. And it’s that weird month, where the leaves start falling, and you have some really dreary days – it’s when you start to realise that winter is really on its way (which is great if you’re a skier/snowboarder), but not so much if you’re a summer water mermaid type.

I picked the theme Happy – because that’s what Little&Luxe makes me. Happy. I genuinely love surprising people. And when I made a list of things that made me Happy, it was SUPER long. In fact, I struggled to cut it back – but it gave me some great ideas for future boxes too.

This month, we had to include coffee. For me coffee is warm, it smells incredible, and it wakes you up, plus you can have it in cake (one of life’s essential products) and the team at Harpoon Cold Brew have made an amazing cold brew coffee that tastes delicious. We’ll be giving two bottles away on our social feeds later this month.

We also included Carbon White’s Peel Off Face Mask. I don’t know about you, but there’s something super satisfying about sitting back (and if you are like me, you’ll have your PJ’s on) with a face mask, glass of wine and trash TV. Definitely makes me happy.

Skye Candle and Body Care make an amazing range of candles – we had to include these as well, the Coconut Lime takes me on a tropical holiday – that’s a total Happy place for me!

One thing I really wanted to include was these super cute mini reusable handwarmers. Pop them in your pocket, crack the tab to release the heat and you’ll have toasty hands for about 30 minutes. You can reuse by heating them up again in hot water, letting them cool, then recracking the disc once you need to use them.

Our last item this month was some pretty cute notebooks. Stationery always makes me Happy. There’s something so satisfying about crossing off a To-Do list.

And that’s our May box of Happy done. Our next theme is being planned now, and it’s going to be amazing. We can’t wait to show you what’s in it.

Talk soon,

And, we’re finally live!

Hi, hello, eek.

You’re here. Finding out what Little&Luxe is! Looking over what I’ve been dreaming about for years! Thinking of signing up. Or maybe you already have (thanks! I get a little kick of excitement when I get a notification).

So what is this? Well, it’s lots of things. A gift – to yourself, or someone else. A discovery – a way to try new brands or products you might not of heard of. It’s also a way to support a bunch of small New Zealand businesses. A mystery – see we never tell what you’re going to get each month – but we do release clues about our theme. And it’s fun. Well, at least I think so (and so do our subscribers).

What do you get if you sign up?

4-6 products based on our theme for the month. I know. Seems ambiguous. That’s part of the surprise. But here’s a selection of what is coming up (or if you are reading this after our launch what’s gone out), Earrings, lipstick, tea, scarves, candles, sugar scrubs, diaries, cookies, reusable coffee cups, exfoliation masques, konjac sponges, necklaces, makeup brush cleaners, chocolate, cookies and more. It’s a bit of everything – based on a changing theme.

We like discovering things, and sharing those things with you. And we include information on where to buy and social links for the brands in each month on our motivation product cards. I mean what’s the point of introducing you to something and then not showing you where to buy more! We also sometimes send samples of things.

You can check our social feeds (we love our instagram) to see our previous boxes, and if you have any questions, suggestions or just want to say hi – feel free to drop me an email or a comment.

Talk soon,
Mel
