Crown and Glory Glitterati; Valentines Box

This month, I was very excited for my Valentine's themed Crown & Glory Glitterati box... being a member of the Facebook group, I was appalling at leaving my box to be a surprise, and kept clicking on lots of other Glitterati members sneak peek photos. When my box finally arrived, I was very chuffed at the goodies inside!

First up, the Holographic Heart Snap Clips (rrp £5) ... These are so simple and easy to wear and style, and even though silver isn't my first choice, these suit my hair in a bun perfectly.
The Love Bobby Pin (rrp £5) is one of my favorites. Red is one of my favorite colours, and again this clip is so easy to style. I'm currently trying to perfect a subtle beehive (if that even exists) so clips and grips are my best friend in my hair styling at present.
The Glitter Heart Bandeau (rrp £15) is one I've been struggling to style, but the piece is very gorgeous. I've been stalking Instagram for ideas... I loved Sarah's styling in her post , my fringe is getting a bit longer, so I may have a go this way.
The Confetti Heart Fascinator (rrp£15) is so gorgeous ... I feel I should go to the Races wearing it. I haven't tried this yet, but I'm definitely going to give it a go, as recommended with victory rolls & pin up make up.
I've obviously saved my favourite till last... the Heart Print Bow Headband (rrp £15). In my pre box arrival peeks, I had seen this headband and had everything crossed I would get it... and I did! The dark red, burgundy colour matches all my favourite red lipsticks and polishes, and I can style this with my hair straight, wavy or on my rough days with a scraped back pony... Sophie's creations can add sparkle to any hairstyle!
I loved the Veronica Dearly cards with my box. My birthday isn't until the 24th, but I accidentally opened it not realising this box was also my birthday box (Doh!). The Valentines Card was displayed loud and proud on my mantle piece for the week, and was a good reminder to get back on board with the Terrific Project this month!
And also in my birthday box... a Silver Glitter Elbie crown!

As my 2nd Glitterati box, I absolutely love receiving my Glitterati boxes, and still think they are well worth the bargain of £20 a month to receive a box of surprises. I can't wait for the Spring months, as I'm guessing I may start seeing some more florals, and after successfully styling the Not a Lotta Rosie bobby pins from last months box the other day, I'm definitely looking forward to my next box!

What did you get in your Glitterati box this month?
