Spring in Bloom - Spread Indie Love Box & Giveaway!

*Press Sample*

Spring is one of my favorite times of the year and when it came time for the curation of the Spring Spread Indie Love Box I knew it was going to be something special. This box is full of amazing indie products, which are all exclusive to the box.  The Spring in Bloom Box has: 4 exclusive polish colors; 2 exclusive bath/body product scents, one exclusive shadow, a peel-able latex and samples galore! I can't wait to show you whats all inside - lets take a look, shall we?

Polish My Life 'Marigold Delight' is an opaque orange-yellow creme. This was perfection for me in 2 coats (shown with glossy top coat). This is my first Polish My Life and its truly unlike anything else in my collection. I adore this polish for both spring and summer! Pretty much everything on their website I want.....the torture!

Anonymous Lacquer 'Mint to Be Green' is a matte mint with a blue flash. This is also my first Anonymous Lacquer! Shown here in 2 coats and no top coat. I'm not usually much of a matte person, but I adore the color of this polish. Bonus that you can make it glossy with a topcoat too.  I've seen many other polishes on their website I'd love to have as well! More to come from this brand for sure!

Girly Bits 'Astilbe There' is loosely inspired by the beautiful Spring/Summer flower also known as False Goat’s Beard (inspiration pictured below).
It is a lovely light pink microglitter swimming with silver holo microglitter and a variety of iridescent glitter. It’s airy and light, much like the beautiful flower.

It offers full coverage in three coats (shown here) and while it is in a clear base it has so much going on that it distracts the eye from the lack of pigment in the base and lets the pure sparkle shine through. It could be worn in one thin coat over a coordinating or complimentary light base color as well. The complexity of this polish just blows my mind.

See more from Girly Bits on their website. They also recently launched a pastel stamping polish collection which I got to try one of and loved it! This Canadian brand also serves as a stockist with lots of amazing brands and products so check it out.

Love Angeline 'Field of Dreams' is a white crelly filled with Aqua, Pink and Peach round and hex glitters. This crelly was specially created to compliment the other colors in the box and I have a number of combinations I want to use it in. Shown here in three coats. I adore Love, Angeline crellies. They apply like a dream and are full of glitters. No fishing required.

Be sure to check out Love, Angeline's website for more! I also love her mani fizzies, cuticle oil and her Topped with Love Topcoat is my hands down favorite!

Shown with Mint to be Green
So Much Goodness 'Purple Nurple' is a latex based nail art product infused with SMG's own mix of natural oils to help moisturize upon removal. I have been using this as a barrier for easy clean up with nail art, but I've also been using it as a peelable base for swatching. Talk about a time (and nail) saver!

Love & Lotus: Whipped Body Butter 
Exclusive scent: Sugar Blossom
A flirtatious blend that begins with clean citrusy top notes of bergamot, grapefruit, and essential oils of lemon and lime. Floral mid-notes of white orchid, freesia, jasmine, passion fruit, and lily of the valley lead to a sweet, soft drydown of vanilla, caramel, amber and Tuscan blood orange.

I'm really excited for you to try this lotion. It's my absolute favorite! This whipped body butter is packed full of skin loving oils and butters to leave you fully hydrated and moisturized yet light and fluffy enough to let your skin breathe all year round.

Shop all the amazing products from Love & Lotus on their website. I have an upcoming review of the new skin care line that you will love as well! 

Anazoe Beauty: Nourishing Conditioner (4oz) 
Exclusive scent: Mermaid
The legendary mermaid surfaces with sparkling mandarin, juicy melon and a hint of apple. Her center is comprised of pineapple, coconut, violet and jasmine and in reaching to her depths you will discover driftwood, sprinkled sugar and white musk.

An amazing deep conditioner that can soften your hair and restore moisture. The Nourishing Conditioner is Sulfate Free , Paraben, and Silicone free.  It is an amazing detangler, provides improved wet comb, and adds moisture.  This product will not strip your hair color. Shea Butter is an excellent moisturizer and Coconut Oil helps to seal it all in. With Silk Protein, Argon oil, and a wonderful blend of Botanical Extracts, you will find this conditioner to live up to it's name.

I recommend using frequently for damaged hair (I used this a few times a week) or once every week  for normal hair. I love the scent and this rich conditioner rinses clean and doesn't weigh down my thin hair. Anazoe Beauty also makes a daily conditioner if you need something more often. Shop more amazing products from Anazoe Beauty on their website. I highly recommend her shampoo and new body wash and lotion too!

Fusion of Color: Mineral Eye Shadow 
Exclusive Color: Sand Castle
This is matte pink mineral shadow. All Fusion of Color mineral eye shadows are vegan and well pigmented. I personally love mineral shadows and this is a shade that will really compliment any skin tone.

This is a good base color to layer under other colors.  Also perfect to wear alone for the no makeup look. The color stays on trend with Pantone color for 2016.  Shop more products and colors on Fusion of Color website!

The Spread Indie Love Box is also full of amazing samples which take this box from amazing to an extraordinary value! Because all of these samples are being provided free of charge a limited number of boxes will include all these samples. So don't delay order right away!

Beautometry Nail File
Beautometry sells polish and plates from all over the world is my #1 stockist. Find brands like Femme Fatale (AUS), A England (UK), Il Etait un Vernis (France) and even MoYou London plates, Creative Shop stampers and great stamping polish. See the entire selection at

Charmed & Dangerous Nail Charm
These adorable rose bud nail charms will look great with all the polishes in this box. I'll be using these in an upcoming mani.  See all the charms on their website.

Sweet Lacquer Spring Vinyls sheet
This sheet alone is a $5.00 value.  I love the mix of playful spring images and think they will coordinate well with the polishes in the box.  I have some other Sweet Lacquer Nail Vinyls and I can tell you they are well made and very detailed.  I think you'll be excited when you get these and I'd love to see what you come up with!

Ever After Cuticle Crelly
Another favorite of mine! This is a mash-up of a cream and a jelly this is perfect for keeping cuticles and skin soft! There are tons of great scents for this crelly (which also comes in hand size). I love the sample size for on the go! Check out the variety of great polishes and bath/body products on the Ever After Website.

Handmade Natural Beauty Foaming Sugar Scrub
This sample is on its way to me so I will update this listing when I get a chance to use it. I can tell you that I love their Goats Milk Soap so I am pretty sure this will be a winner too! Save 10% on your order when you subscribe to the newsletter (see website for details!)

Sugar provides gentle natural exfoliation while the butters and oils deeply moisturize. What makes Handmade Natural Beauty's Foaming Sugar Body Scrubs different from standard body sugar scrubs, is that they are also infused with a gentle cleanser which provides a light foam and cuts down on the oily feeling most standard sugar scrubs leave you with. See more on their website!

Alter Ego Oatmeal Soap
This soap is great for sensitive skin. I've been using it on my daughter and I really like it. See more products at

Now for the kicker - what do you think this box costs? This box would easily be $90 - $100+ if you got each of these items separately. Here is the really special part, (wait for it...) The entire box is only $45.00 + shipping! (Cue the trumpets! Cue the confetti! Cue the Marching Band! Sorry there is a party in my imagination when I wrote and then read that!)

PreOrder starts Friday April 22nd (and runs thru April 30th) over on the Ever After Polish online store. Boxes will begin shipping approx a week and a half after preorder ends. Don't wait, remember all of these samples are being provided free of charge so a limited number will have them included! (I'll confirm how many and let you all know).
