    Fab idea! Although knowing me I’d open it all at once and then be annoyed that there isn’t any chocolate.

    I’m gutted! Just saw it mentioned in Stylist Magazine. Call to buy and they have sold out :(

  12. Bili says:

    @ Lucy, Kaja, Kirsty, etc, I was also gutted to see they had run out, but then I tried one from Latest in Beauty, and it was pretty amazeballs! Got a bit of everything

    Plus it’s packaged SO nicely, i was pretty excited when I got it, so got one as a Xmas pressie for my mum.

    Try n get it before they run out too! As everyone seems to be running out of stock! lol
