My Glossybox Subscription

When I first became a Mum, the idea of treating myself with lavish gifts didn't seem too important or quite necessary, considering the circumstances. You aren't exactly feeling your best and don't really fancy dolling yourself up to hang around the house feeding all day! 

I remember quite early on, my Husband found an article about subscription boxes, with options for every target market and that's when I first heard about Glossybox. I don't think I was too bothered at the time, but he ordered me one anyway and I’ve received one every month ever since and think they are great. So much so, I thought I would show you the latest box to give you an idea of what you get for your money.

The monthly subscription that we have is £13.25 a month and is huge value for money, especially as one full sized beauty product could cost that amount or more, depending on brand and quality. But I think if you sign up to 12 months, which we might as well be doing, you actually get it a little cheaper at £11.75. Octobers box (this one) is still available to purchase if you like the look of its contents! By using MAGIC you can get it for £11, although I am not sure how long this code is valid, so do check online first.
Glossybox Packaging
This months box is called Beauty Tales and has products worth over £50. There are two different box designs available, but all contents are the same. I received the Midnight Fantasy box and its beautiful! I keep a lot of my glossy boxes as they are just too pretty to throw away! They are good for keeping small toys in for O and for keeping crafting bits and bobs organised. 
Glossybox contents
The box consists of 5 beauty products, 3 of those being full size and the other 2 are deluxe minis:
1. AHC Essential Real Eye Cream (deluxe mini), worth £8.66 and can be found here.
2. Bubble T Cosmetics Star Dust Foaming Bath Powder (full size), worth £5.99 and can be found here.
3. Luna By Luna Pixie Lipstick (full size), worth £15 and can be found here
4. Illamasqua Hydra Veil Primer (deluxe mini), worth £10 and can be found here
5. The Beauty Crop Stargazing Blush Duo (full size), worth £18 and can be found here
In general, I find the Glossbox a bargain and great if your not one for sticking to the same products all the time. I get to try so many different products and can then replace the ones I use up and love, without having to pay full price for them first time round. 
Another blog post coming soon for Blogtober 2020 is some alternative subscription boxes available. So if this isn't your thing, hopefully it will include something better suited to you.

  1. Love the look of this, the box is beautiful! I get the Birchbox and love getting to try some different products every month x

  2. I used to get a Glossybox a few years ago. They really are worth the money when you see the prices of the individual products included.

  3. I hear so many good things about the Glossy Box but haven't taken the dive myself - I am glad you are enjoying it!

  4. I don't really wear much make up, but I do love the sound of these boxes as a way of dipping you toes in and trying out all sorts of new products. x

It's Blogtober Baby

Only I would start a blog the day before Blogtober! I've been meaning to give blogging a go for a while now and after hearing about it from some lovely blogger friends I've met online, I thought I would take the plunge, throw myself into the deep end and see if it's for me. And what better way to start than with Blogtober... For anyone who hasn't heard of or taken part in Blogtober before, its ultimately a challenge for bloggers to publish a blog post every single day during the month of October. There are no strict rules on topics to cover, its just there to encourage more writing and creativity.  Some people like to map out what each days blog post will cover before hand, others publish their topic lists on their Day One post, but I will be winging it. I have a few ideas, but haven't actually written anything in advance, giving myself an even bigger challenge, but hey, that's what makes it fun right!  Love Sophie, MMC x    

6 Must Watch Series for Mums

I have got through my fair share of series since becoming a Mum. A lot of them have been cheesy crap from the 90’s, because let’s face it, concentration spans reduce massively when you’ve got a little one to keep alive! But I have also had a chance to watch some great series, ones that I have totally been able to relate to from one time or another and that is what great TV is all about right?  So here are my top 6 must watch series for Mums: 1.   Girls|6 Series|Prime Video So, out of all the series mentioned in this post, this one doesn’t feature Mums as main characters, but is a great series, full of dark humour with raw and real story lines. It takes you on a journey of a group of friends in their 20’s, faced with the usual difficult choices adulthood brings. In my opinion it’s a modern-day indie version of Sex and The City. It made me laugh continuously, with some real shock factor moments and also brought on a few tears too. You will fall in love with Lena (the main character),

A Big Mighty Mum Welcome!

Hello, I'm Sophie and this is my first ever blog post! I am a stay at home Mum to a threenage son, a fur baby Norfolk Terrier and currently share my 'work place' with my wonderful husband who is working hard at home (somehow!), keeping us all a float during these crazy COVID-19 times. My biggest mission is to bring all Mighty Mum's together and I hope this blog will really help with that! Before having a baby, I was a Personal Assistant and loved the buzz of being constantly busy, having events to plan (and attend!) and meeting so many new people. Shortly after having my son, we moved to Watford, so I started the @mightymumclub Instagram account, sharing outings and activities in the new area I had moved too. Just over a year later and my account has grown and so have I as a parent. I have met some lovely local Mum's, found some fantastic small businesses and met some great new friends, a lot of them being incredible bloggers! I always try  and see the funny side
