    August Degustabox Review

    So it feels like I haven’t done a Degustabox review for ages. In fact the last one I wrote was in May! (You can read it here if you fancy a nosey). With the tiredness that came at the end of pregnancy and the craziness of having a newborn, time has just slipped away!

So without further ado, let’s get onto the August Degustabox review! (And just incase you fancy getting your hands on your very own box, I can help! That’s because…
