Gifts in the mail!!

I know what y'all are thinking...I am a terrible blogger! And your right, I am! But I do have something to tell you guys about so here goes...

Anybody heard of Birchbox? I have several blogger friends who do it and I always love to read about it so I decided to take the plunge and try it myself. Birchbox is and I quote "the best way to discover new grooming, beauty and lifestyle products. Sample top products from high end brands, get expert advice, buy new favorites and earn points with every purchase." So what that means is for $10 a month you recieve a cute little box in the mail with samples of several different things. I have recently gotten my second box and I have to say I'm so excited to see it in the mail box! Who doesn't like to get gifts in the mail and even though its not actually a gift, it sure feels like it.

It comes in the cutest little packaging! This one's for women but they do one for men too. My only qualm in the beginning is that it was small. I had heard that already so I was prepared. I wasn't disappointed at all though after I opened it up.

This was May's box and it contained Kerastase shampoo, conditioner, and the leave in treatment! Fabulous stuff and smells fantastic!  Nail polish by Color Club in clambake coral, great summer color. Miracle Skin Body SPF20. Algenist Regenerative Anti-Aging Moisturizer. Last but not least, the cutest little card for you to use! I don't do that much and I actually thought excuse not to now!  While I wasn't necessarily thrilled with that one, I wasn't really disappointed either.

This is June's box and I was more pleased! All of it was things that I would definitely use. It contained a Tili bag, which will be great for my outing next weekend. Stainiac by The Balm, love it! Lumiere d'hiver Super Comb Prep & Protect, and boy do we need that in East Texas! BlenderCleanser to clean your makup brushes and something that I rarely think about doing! Comodynes Self-Tanning Intensive & Uniform Color Wipes. That stuff smelled fantastic and came with two of them but of course Reagen had first dibs on those babies! It also came with a sample of John Varvatos Star for men! Gave that one to my son for Father's Day and O M G...smells fantastic!

I was much more pleased with this month's but not disappointed by either of them. Not everyone gets the same things. They do have a selection of items that they send out and I would like to have had some of the others. I'm not sure how they decide what to send to who but in the end it doesn't matter because I'm not upset at all. I will be checking the mailbox everyday after the first of the month...patience is not a virtue for me! You should try it if you like to get "gifts" or try new things. I'm always looking for something new! If you do decide to try or use it now, let me know what you think??

til next time...

Isn't it Winter????

I know that this is East Texas. I know that we usually have pretty mild winters around here, but did someone forget to tell Mother Nature that its also JANUARY?!? Seriously, I'm ready for some cold weather and lets get it over with! Especially after the horrible summer we had last year! I do not want a repeat of that one! So how bout a lil snow!! Really, I want some snow...not a lot, just a day or two. Since it looks like it won't be happening this year, I thought we dream up our own!!



Isn't it amazing what God can do with white!!! Til next time...shuga!!
