You Hit the Mark This Time, Birchbox!


My Birchbox arrived this week and I was smiling and giddy this month when I opened the package!

August Birchbox

August Birchbox Theme: Finishing School

Finishing School = “Zeroing in on the Details”

The Loot - August Birchbox

The Loot – August Birchbox

The Loot:

Miss Jessie’s Original Rapid Recovery Treatment & Super Sweetback Treatment – These are weekly nourishments for the hair. And they were meant for mine! For “naturally curly, kinky and wavy hair.”

Birchbox Bobby Pins – Cute and durable. Not your average black bobby pin. You can even go to Birchbox.com to find cute ways to wear them.

Juice Beauty Oil-Free Moisturizer – Do you know how LONG I’ve been asking Birchbox to send me a moisturizer sample because I’m in the market for a new one? YES!

Violet Oasis Organic Argan Oil – I already use Moroccan oil in my hair and love it. When I do, my husband says that my perfume smells nice. 😉 However, I didn’t even think about using this stuff on my skin. The Birchbox insert reads:

WHAT – Star Moroccan import that feeds skin and hair with vitamin E and essential fatty acids.

HOW – Smooth onto face, neck and body or work 1 – 2 drops through hair for shine and softness.

Party-Proof Lipstick – Dusk Till Dawn color – A shade a feel comfortable with. It feels nice, too.

Thank you, Birchbox! You really delivered this month.

What product , beauty or otherwise, do you feel like was MADE for you?

Women’s Health Birchbox


I know it’s not my usual Subscription Box Saturday, but my Birchbox arrived in the mail today and I just couldn’t wait to share because it’s been one of my favorites ever!

For April 2013, Birchbox coordinated with Women’s Health magazine to put a box together with the theme “Tiny Tweaks, Big Results.” Remember, different boxes go out to different members, so here is what came in my box this month:

April 2013 Birchbox: Ting

Kusmi Teas, Oribe Shampoo & Conditioner for Beautiful Color (2 of each, sample size), Supergoop! Advanced SPF 40 Anti-Aging Eye Cream, Mirenesse Glossy Kiss Lipstick, Skin&Co Roma Cleansing Sicilian Body Gel

I’m very excited to try all of these! But look carefully on top of the box. Birchbox members get a free one year subscription to Women’s Health Magazine! Score!

And while I’m loving this Birchbox to the max, I just have one request (okay two) of the folks over there…

Birchbox, I am in the market for a new moisturizer and a new mascara.

I don’t have one of either that I love and would appreciate sampling some to find a new favorite!

Can you please consider those in an upcoming box?

Why, thank you.

Off to put away my new items and pack that lovely tea with my lunch tomorrow!

What magazines do you subscribe to and why?
