{Birch Box}

I used to love getting mail as a kid- cards from grandma, American Girl Magazine,  Christmas cards with pictures of family. However, since graduating college, getting married, and getting a job I've learned that mail isn't quite as exciting as it once was. Between bills and junk mail, checking the mailbox isn't what it once was. 

Birchbox has changed all that...

This is no ordinary box. This box has super powers...

Okay, so maybe it doesn't have super hero like powers, but it does hold all this...


You see, Birchbox is this snazzy little website that, for $10 a month, allows you to sign up for a 3, 6, or 12 month subscription. Each month you receive a Birchbox in the mail filled with all kinds of beauty samples you get to try out without having to drop the money for a full size bottle/container. This month's Birchbox was filled with goodies picked by designer Cynthia Rowley. Alright, now that I've spent about a whole paragraph sounding like an advertisement, let me get down to business and share with you a few of the goodies in this month's Birchbox...

I've seen these Kind Bars in Whole Foods before, but they never really looked...umm...appetizing. Oh. Was. I. Wrong. Yum! This apricot and almond Kind bar tasted like a coconut macaroon. After eating this one I promptly went out and bought four more. 

Philosophy face wash...I never tried this until now but it is oh-so-refreshing and cleansing. Perfect for this summer heat. 

I got pedicures with my beautiful, fun sister-in-law this weekend. But when the pedicure wears off in several weeks I'll be using this Zoya nail polish in Shay. Have I ever mentioned I am crazy for cute pink nail polish colors? It all started when I was barely 3 years old and my mum started painting my nails every weekend. Mother-daughter bonding time, naturally. 


Reason 567,823 why I married my husband? He knows how to give the best gifts and a Birchbox filled with fun samples is definitely one of them!


What do you think of Birchbox? Do you know of any other websites or companies that offer similar programs and deals?

Oh my gosh. This is amazing! Another blog I follow wrote about Birchbox & I think it's such a great idea. ...I just might have to sign up for this one. Did you write a blog post about decorating? I thought I saw a tweet about a post. I need some ideas for our new apartment :)

Yes, I think it's totally worth signing up for. Saves money to be able to just test a product before having to buy the whole thing.

Yes, I did write a blog post about decorating, I'm saving it for a little later this week though. :)It's about being creative with using what I've got to decorate. Coming very, very soon...
