Here you'll find a collection of snaps from bellabox HQ, including the products we can't live without - meaning they live on our desks 24/7 - as well as our favourite coffee and lunch spots, what inspires us and our fave products in the bb store right now.
Goe Oil - This miracle oil had been on my radar for quite sometime, but it wasn't until Zoe Foster gave it rave reviews that I decided to nab a bottle for myself! Perfect to massage into cuticles for nourishment after hours of typing!
Savoir Faire Concealer and Finishing Powder - This little pot of concealer lives on my desk permanantly! I tend to suffer from the occasional midday blemish - you know the ones that aren't there when you are getting ready in the morning, but rear their ugly 'head' at around 2pm? The two shades means I can blend my ideal colour to cover these nasties up, but also that I can use the same concealer to hide under eye circles (great for when I've been staring long and hard at my computer screen all day!) The included powder also comes in handy to set everything in place.
Luk Beautifood Lip Nourish - Lucy is a bit of a foodie (we are always left drooling over her instagrams from dinners out with friends!) so it's not surprise she love the Luk lip nourishes. She bagged the Lime and Ginger flavour - super fresh for the spring summer season!
Carmex - So Lucy obviously loves a lip product or two! As a lipstick lover, she knows that keeping her lips hydrated is the key to the perfect base for bold colours. In comes all-round bb fave Carmex! Providing long lasting relief for dry, chapped lips this balm can be worn under or over lipstick too.
Living on Social Media and Logistics Manager, Bridget's desk:
You Me & Everybody Pucker Up Paw Paw Ointment - Bridget is also no stranger to dry lips, which is why she loves this paw paw ointment from You Me & Everybody. Also great on any dry skin, this is another handy tube to have on hand. Bridget scored her's in one of the limited edition Bespoke DOLLY bellaboxes, which also houses a heap of exciting and cute products for hair, skin and nails. We really do love a limited edition here at bb!
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Nail Dry Colour - Bridget loves the soft pink colour of this Sally Hansen polish in 150 Petal Pusher - not to mention that it dries in just 60 seconds! Fantastic for a mani on the go, we are also all sharing around the hot pink hue - 260 Sonic Bloom. Just another way we are getting involved with the pink theme at bb this month to help raise awareness for breast cancer research, alongside our Pretty in Pink Party boxes.
Downstairs is the realm of our Senior Brand Consultant Sam, where she also houses her vast collection of fragrance for The Powder Room. How pretty are all of those bottles! We all adore making excuses to go downstairs and stop by to smell her divine Miller Harris collection. Here are our top picks:
Miller Harris La Pluie Eau de Parfum- This stunning fragrance conjurs the weight of inky storm clouds, like those that role in before a balmy thunderstorm on a far away, humid island escape. Super exotic!
Miller Harris Fuilles de Tabac Eau de Parfum - One for the bella bloke, this masculine scent contains notes of rich woods, tobacco leaves and spices and was based around the woody, smoky, romantic brasseries of Saint-Germain. Oh la la!
We all love our coffee at bb (hardly surprising) and we are fiends for good coffee at that. This means we'll walk any distance to the best brew in town! We also love Cheerio's AMAZING, freshly made sandwiches (I've tried almost every flavour by now) The friendly faces of owners Charlotte and Chris also keep us coming back.
Espresso 3121's coffee is also spectacular - as is their tuna, avocado, almond and balsamic salads. Yummo! This laneway cafe is a real hit, especially with the social media crowd. For those go the go, you can even tweet them your coffee order!
The bb team's pick of the best in our online store right now:
The entire Yes To range, Wotnot Organic Facial Wipes, Perfumies, Royal Moroccan Haircare
Yes to Carrots, Yes to Cucumbers, Yes to Blueberries, Yes to Tomatoes: The Yes To range is without a doubt one of the most popular ranges we stock here at bb - and why wouldn't it be? With four product categorys to suit every skin type, there is a Yes To product for you. An all-round favourite is the Yes to Carrots Nourishing Exfoliating Cleanser, which is super natural (like the rest of the range) and cotains beta-carotene to provide nourishment whilst thoroughly cleansing the skin.
Wotnot Organic Facial Wipes: These wipes are a stand out pick amongst members - you guys can't get enough! Though, we don't blame you considering that they are made from a soft 100% natural fiber that is gentle to the most sensitive skin, whilst also being 100% biodegradable and compostable, made from certified organic, natural, ingredients.
Perfumies Solid Perfume Stick: These clever little perfume sticks are a hit amongst bb members, bb online shoppers and bb staffers alike! Picking a scent to suit your mood is a breeze, as they are priced at just $9.95 a pop. Perfect for throwing one in each of your handbags!
Royal Moroccan: This haircare brand is tops for getting the glossy locks you've seen on starlets such as Whitney, Olivia and Alexa. Try the hair mask treatment to show your locks some TLC and reap the rewards (I'm a big fan!)
Ozotic Nail Enamel, Twistband, the Pure Fiji range, Bioderma
Ozotic Nail Enamel- The team at Ozotic are a small business dedicated to making high quality enamels in a range of hyper-pigmented shades. Not only do the finished product do just this, they are also super long wearing to boot. I love the cherry red shade - 125 Crimson - sure to suit any mani or pedi on any gal, for any occassion.
Twistband - Ever since we saw these hair ties on celebs wrists all over Hollywood, we wanted to know what they were! Since stocking them, not a day has gone past were one top knot or pony tail has been worn to this office without the help of Twistbands! Available in a range of colours and sizes (headband length, regular and skinny ties) every set of locks can now be tied up easily without breakage or dents.
Pure Fiji- The scents of the Pure Fiji range alone is enough to get your heart racing. Then factor in the nourishing nut extracts, milk proteins, and lush scents, and you'll see why we are obsessed with these products! Try the Pure Fiji Body Butter in Mango - smells like a summer cocktail. Yum!
Bioderma - The French know best, and we've followed their suit! Bioderma is such an exceptional skincare range - it has been flying off our virtual shelves since we sampled it in our last box. Whilst the Bioderma Sebium AKN and Bioderma Sebium Foaming Gel are already firm favourites among bb fans, we also recommend the Bioderma Sebium H20 which removes makeup and cleanses the skin, without needing to be rinsed off. So Frenchy!
And finally, what would any bb tour be without our fave bb boy? Here is our belladog, Thompson, who keeps us entertained everyday!
