Violet Box Review : Another Beauty Box Subscription in Australia

Violet Box 2013, Violet Box June, Violet Box July, First Violet Box, Violet Box contents, what's inside Violet Box

June 2013 was a HUGE month for me…  I was still suffering from all-day sickness but working full-time and trying to conceal my pregnancy at work.  I was nervously counting the days till the CVS testing I had to undergo to confirm the viability of the pregnancy.  I was crying with emotion when I saw our bubba leap up and down on the ultrasound at week 12…moments before the CVS needle injected into my placenta to extract fluids for the DNA testing.  I was stressed off my nut waiting for the results, but also worried that the CVS could have harmed bubba (1 in 100 chance of miscarriage – DOUBLE the risk of amniocentesis).  I was crying with joy and then vomiting from crying in the staff toilet because I received the fantastic news from our genetic counsellor at work…and then I had to go back to work and act all normal and cool when I was screaming with joy inside.

In amongst the crazy month of June, I received a surprise care package in the form of the LAUNCH BOX of the FIRST EVER Violet Box, the newest beauty box subscription in Australia…and I must say it was a fantastic temporary distraction from all the stress I was undergoing…  I know I’m a month late, but let’s have a look inside to see the contents of the first Violet Box (but if you’ve already seen it on other beauty blogs, just pretend you don’t know and play along…)

My Baby Bump

my baby bump at week 15

LOOK AT THE ABOVE PHOTO CAREFULLY!!!  This is called a BABY BUMP at 15 weeks and 6 days.  NOT to be confused with a food baby.  NOT to be confused with flabby belly.

belly

And this photo is the best flabby belly / food baby I could find of myself.  Notice how the flab flops down and doesn’t stay up like a baby bump.

I am just making sure you notice the difference so that you never do what some people did to me previously…
