Amitee Pamper Secrets Prize Box

I was fortunate enough to win this fantastic Pamper Secrets Beauty Box from Amitee for my entry in their launch competition.

To enter the competition I had to answer this question: 'What does beauty mean to you?'

I found this a huge challenge, seriously, I actually lost sleep over it.

As owner/founder of Beauty Box Swaps with a part-time job as a Benebabe I felt I really should give this some serious consideration.

I thought very deeply about the matter and then eventually settled on:

Beauty comes from the 3Ps: Personality, Prettiness & Products working together with balance & harmony xx

I actually think it's impossible for me to fully define what Beauty means to me. 

I do however love and appreciate the quote on the Pamper Secrets Invitation cards included in my box:

'Beauty is being in harmony with who you are'
Peter Nivio Zarlenga
