Lady Loving: Bellabox

Have you heard of Bellabox? I came across them while reading the latest Womens Fitness magazine. I checked out there site and it is awesome. Why? Everyone loves to get a sample of new beauty products, and Bellabox has a service where you pay a subscription fee and you will receive every month a box of 5-7 sample sized goodies for you to try. 

What was in my May Bellabox delivery

For a monthly fee of $15 (or a yearly subscription of $165 - yes that's one month free) and free delivery you will get a pretty present in the mail! What girl wouldn't want more. What's even better you can review and rate the products to recieve Bella Reward Points to use against your purchases at the Bellabox online store.

It's also a great idea for a gift which I have a special Lady in mind for her upcoming Birthday. Just like a magazine subcription its the gift that keeps on giving!!

We are not talking small tiny sachets either, they are multiple use samples (not full sized but not tini tiny). Notable mention that I have tried so far is the Udderly Smooth cream. Horrible name, but a great moisturiser, especially for my vitamin D difficient winterer skin.

Also loving the Bloom - lip stain in Rhubarb. Goes on easily and is light and doesn't dry out your lips.

So don't hesitate, jump on the Bellabox website and subcribe. I love getting parcels so I have already purchased a yearly subscription.

The Palace gets a Make Over

The Palace hasn't had a mention on the Lady Fable for a while. I have finally finished making it pretty! The final touches were the kitchen. Thanks to King Fable (Dad) it would not have happened, he is the best handyman as he is a perfectionist.

The kitchen is tiny in the palace. So small I can't fit dinner plates in the cupboards normally. Annoying, but this is a good thing as I have no room for unnecessary kitchen gadgets that I would like to have......

Palace Kitchen Before
 White, white, white, blah. As you can see the back wall was boring and flat and not practical. Having plasterboard next to the stove top was a nightmare for food splatter. The kitchen is small and has little storage space.

Palace Kitchen After it's mini facelift
White is still here but with the addition of some texture of some tiles. Pretty and practical. Whats even better I got the subway style tiles from a friends reno that was left over (for a reasonalble price) Score!! The long tiles make the kitchen look bigger too!!

After: the Palace Kitchen
I got the floating shelves and ceramic barrels from the ever cool Temple & Webster. Which break up the white and also give the illusion of space.  I am so happy with the kitchen.

Now I need a new project! New house maybe?

Where Have you been lately

It feels like every time I come back to my blog another two months have past. How the hell does time fly by so quickly? Is it because I am having too much fun, or is it as I get older things just fly by in an instant. It has been a whirlwind and it's already June.  My best friend got married, I was promoted at work and I have had a work trip to the states in the past two months. So many milestones and no time to stop and enjoy the moment. For those on Instagram I have been posting on there, so you know what I have been up to. If you don't follow me don't be shy come over and say Hello!!!

My addition to anything vintage continues. I picked this beauty up from Dear Gladys in Northcote. A lolly, licorious allsort colourful number from Germany and a rarity, its cotton!! I tried it on and it was like it was made for me(maybe it is the small amount of German heritage that helped, Ha!). Ring a ding, I bought it.

Dress from Dear Gladys, Bardot Ring Samantha Wills

So to my Best Friend's Wedding...Lady Helen tied the knot and I can only sum up the happiness and love of the day by this candid image I snapped just after the ceremony.

Lady Helen looked absolutely radiant against the beautiful back drop of the winery, surrounded by her family and friends and her new hubby.

An amazing day, that makes me smile every time I think about it!

The one thing I love about a wedding is the fact you can get dressed up. I had a few options but going on theme and in line with my new "addiction" of Vintage I remembered I had a dress of my grandmothers that she gave to me years ago.
I posted on Instagram my outfit, my Aunt saw this and then sent me the above left image of my grandmother 33 years earlier wearing the same dress. I love vintage!!
