Bon Bon Bath and Beauty Review

Bon Bon Bath and Beauty

Today I’m sharing my Bon Bon Bath and Beauty review after trying out this brand for the first time recently. I have followed this brand on Instagram for awhile now, mainly because their products just look so yummy, and was lucky to get two of their most popular products for Christmas. Something else which attracted me to the brand is that it is NZ owned and operated and completely vegan!

The plan is a post a week leading up to summer with a different focus each time. Today, I want to share with you my plans for the summer break! I’d love to know what you are all getting up to, whether you are having a big family Christmas, spending all your time off at the beach or heading to somewhere amazing for New Years. For me, my break starts in two and a bit weeks!

I am lucky to be in a position to get school holidays off, my last official day of work is the 9th of December and it is going to be all go from there!
