I'm (at times) the most indecisive person on the planet so much so I often think the reason I've been vegetarian so long is because I hate picking food off of menus. In my mind I like everything equally. For months I've been scrolling through every item on Crown and Glory's site in the search of the "perfect hair piece". Something the will compliment my new favourite feature, but there was just so much choice I wanted it all. 

I honestly think Sophie had the floral mystery box idea with me in mind. For £20 I'll get a complete surprise worth £50- how could I go wrong? I didn't know exactly what I was going to get with the possibility of one off samples was something I couldn't resist but I didn't know how perfect the box would be. Honestly WOW!! 

I was expecting maybe one floral crown, a medium sized clip and something else so when 3 crowns arrived, two clips and a comb I was shocked. Plus look at how perfect they all are! 

When I first saw these poppy hair clips I thought they would he my favourite; singly the pretty big and would go perfectly as a causal clip in my hair, but (as the clip is a tough crocodile clip) they layer up beautifully (I'm planning to wear them like this soon). But they where outstripped but this floral comb. 

I've searched and searched on C&G but I can't find anything like this- this is a one off sample!! Why!? 

As soon as I slipped it into my hair (which was a mess at the tine) I fell in love. I don't know if its just the mix of flowers, or the comfort of the comb but its the exact hair piece I needed to add to the waves I've been rocking recently. (This is why I thought Sophie had the boxes with me in mind).

In the box was 3 crowns- the ivory Lotta Rosie head band, what I think is the sunset anenome crown, and another special little purple number. 3 very different pieces that creates very different looks. 

I cant wait to experiment with all my pieces. :)

If you're thinking about updating your hair for spring, want a treat or like me are super indecisive seriously consider one of the Crown and Glory mystery boxes (that cone in the Floral theme, as well as VintageGlitter and mixed).

P.S. if anyone has tips on how to store crowns that would be great, as there currently wrapped up in a box on top of my wardrobe and would love a better view. 

P.S.S. I'm currently struggling under filling out my student finance forms- if anyone has any advice what so ever please help me! I really don't want to work myself into a grave this time round so I'm trying to apply for a loan but I'm really lost at what I'm eligible for.
