|My Little Box - Someone is thinking of you!|
When you were in elementary school, did you ever receive the adventure boxes that featured a different country every month? Not only were they stuffed full of tangible items like activity sheets, postcards, stickers and traditional toys, they were also overflowing with dreams. In the days when far away lands captured my imagination yet travel seemed as illusive as a unicorn in an enchanted forest, I eagerly awaited the arrival of the postman to discover where the items in my box would take me next. Spain, Malaysia or Kenya?
Fast forward to the Special-T event at the Shangri-La Hotel when I heard from one of the other guests that My Little Paris offers a monthly box full of surprises - I immediately knew that they were on to something good. As it was too late to sign up for February's "My Little Flirt Box", I've eagerly been awaiting the arrival of the postman ever since I returned from Boston. To intensify the suspense, I received an email saying that My Little Box was on its way along with a special playlist of songs about New York City ranging from Madonna's "I Love New York" to Billie Holiday's "Autumn in New York".
Feeling like a little kid, I shouted "My box is here, my box is here" when the gardienne rang our doorbell on Saturday morning. Stéphane, who didn't know that I had ordered a present for myself, was confused as to why I was so excited about the arrival of a mere package. In between explaining to him, ripping open the cardboard box and trying to remember to take photos, I marveled at all of the products that it contained.
The Little New York Box:
- "I Love N.Y." - A non-permanent tattoo designed by Kanako
- Nail polish created by the New Yorker, essie
- Package of Oreo cookies (Yummy!!!)
- "Essence", eau de toilette by Narciso Rodriguez, a New York fashion designer
- "Essence" scented body lotion by Narciso Rodriguez
- A city guide to NYC with secret addresses, illustrated by Kanako
- Redken professional shampoo
- Five large cards to frame from the book, Paris vs New York by Vahram Muratyan
- A gift from My Little Paris designed by Kanako
- My Little New York Book
Do you speak "New Yorker"? I don't - so it was kind of fun to see that "flying rats" means pigeons and "Dumbo" refers to a hip neighborhood in Brooklyn.
According to the My Little New York Book, the height of heels in New York grows with the passage of time starting at 0.5 cm for sprinting to the subway in the morning to 5.5 cm for lunching in Central Park to a staggering 12 cm for sipping a cocktail in Manhattan in the evening.
If you would like to experience the excitement of receiving a monthly box of surprises and beauty products for 15.50 Euros, visit My Little Box. I can hardly wait to see what will be in My Little Spring Box in April. They're also an excellent gift idea for friends!
