Unless you’ve been living under a rock lately you’ll be aware that next Friday the 27th November will otherwise be known as “Black Friday”. Originating in the USA, the day after thanksgiving sees retailers slash prices of their wares in preparation for the Christmas gifting season. To celebrate this the folks at TNT Direct
sent out some #LittleBlackBoxes
to help set the mood.
The box housed a whole variety of familiar all-black products including some of my long-time favourites…
Black nail polish and lipstick takes me right back to my late teenage years (you know, like a decade ago) when I tried to be edgy. Although I never did manage to pull off either with much success and steer very clear these days both of these products bought back some hilarious and mostly drunken memories of being young and carefree with my friends.
100% Gold Chocolate- this is as dark as chocolate gets and I love it! Given the choice I’d take dark chocolate over milk any day and the stronger the better in my eyes. This particular bar is just to my taste and goes wonderfully with a cup of strong coffee…
Which leads me swiftly on to my next favourite, Coffee from the Little Coffee Bag Co. I’ve always taken my coffee black, I just prefer it that way. I also drink it so hot I risk burns in my mouth every time. These coffee bags are perfect for a proper cup at work where a cafetiere is too much faff, I’m looking to stock myself up asap having discovered these.
Growing up I was the odd child who loved the strongly flavoured sweets, aniseed and liquorice being particular favourites (and with family in Holland I have always been well looked after when it comes to liquorice). Black jacks and liquorice wheels are both long time favourites and the ones supplied in my Little Black Box didn’t last long at all!
Will you be shopping the Black Friday sales? I admit I am pretty much done with my Christmas shopping by this point but I’ll still be scouring the stores for any additional gifts to be giving.
