Breathe In, Breathe Out!

You may know already, if you follow this blog, or follow me on social media, that I am a huge fan of Hilary Duff. I simply adore her. She is someone I feel like I have grown up with, and all these years after Lizzie McGuire, I still think she is absolutely wonderful. She truly represents what I feel a role model should be. I know everyone will differ on that topic and I'm not trying to put pressure on people in the spotlight to be role models, though I do believe we are all role models to someone and if the world realized that more, I feel it would be full of a whole lot more respect and love, but that's a whole other blog post! :p Where was I? Oh yes, I admire all that Hilary Duff has accomplished and how she has presented herself over the years, so I was super excited when she announced a new album and when I found out that she was going to be back on our TV screens. I am currently binge watching her show 'Younger' on and loving it. :) I knew I would be purchasing the album as I had been nodding my head and dancing along to "All about you" and "Chasing the sun" and I said to my husband that to see her live is definitely on my 'To Do' list and I have a thing about going to concerts and knowing the words to the's not as much fun when you can't sing your heart out! :p

When Hilary Duff announced her Fanjoy box I have to admit I was incredibly tempted. With it being a tad expensive I went back and forth on whether or not to purchase it and ultimately getting it won! :p I couldn't resist and definitely had a fan girl giddy moment. So after an 11 hour shift on Monday, I came home to this delightful package on my door step and I smiled so big. It was just what I needed. Furthermore, the minute I opened it all up and put the album on, I was so glad I went ahead and bought it. :) Want to take a peek inside...of course you do! ;p

I love this title 'Breathe in, Breathe out' it feels like another one of those 'right quote at the right time' kind of things and fits with my life at the moment. :)

First thing to jump out of the box...a lovely little note from Hilary! :)

Look at all the pretty treats!

These are probably my favourite things, (besides the actual album) the tshirt is so cozy and soft and I love the grey/black colour. And, naturally, I adore the pictures. Hilary always looks stunning and her pictures of herself and Luca make my heart melt, he's the cutest. :) I like getting fashion tips through her pictures too, I love her style and I need all the help I can get in that department! :p

Here you have tattoos, an EOS lip balm, a bracelet, the album and bonus songs through the little card. It's such a cute parcel and it made me smile that the bracelet is 'handmade by Artisans in Uganda who are being empowered to rise above poverty.' I thought that was very cool. I'm also thrilled that the bonus songs are 'All about you' and Chasing the sun' as I was a little sad when I saw that they weren't on the album, so yay for the cute bonus card! :)

If you are a fan of Hilary Duff and purchased the box too, I hope you are enjoying it, I've been having one women dance parties since I opened it! :p For those who haven't bought the album yet...what are you waiting for??! It's awesome!! Go get it! :)

Have a wonderful day!

Love Lucy xx


  1. I had no idea bands did this sort of thing. What an amazing concept.

    1. I really love it. It was cool to get some little goodies along with the album and she is just awesome. :) xxx

  2. Wow, this is so cool. I wish other artists did this.

    1. Check out the Fanjoy website, as I'm sure that is what they do, they work with other artists and do some cool boxes! :) x

  3. OMG. I seriously love Hilary Duff too- always have. I have been watching Lizzie McGuire dvds lately and love the show even more now than I did growing up haha. I've been following Hilary's career ever since Lizzie ended and have been amazed at her ability to stay so down to earth and real. It would be so wonderful to see her perform live- I seriously need to put that on my to-do list so hopefully she'll tour again soon! :)

    I saw when she posted about this fan box on her instagram (oddly enough, she's the only celebrity I follow even though I'm such a big fan of the Spice Girls and I don't even follow them, but Hilary is just so real on hers so that's what keeps me truly interested in her posts). What a sweet idea the fan box thing is! I love the things she included- that mint EOS is my favorite and I remember she had it in the Chasing the Sun music video (by the way, why didn't All About You and Chasing the Sun make it onto the album? Those songs are super cool!). And that t-shirt is pretty! Admittedly, I have yet to listen to the entire new album but that's only because I have "My Kind" on repeat- it is my JAM! haha
