I'm BACK! And June Birchbox opening!

HI! I'm back!! I had a great time in Italy... I have so many pictures to share with you guys! I'm so glad to be home and in my own bed again, even though I miss my husband! (He won't be home until the 17th.... he's spending time with his family over there. ) Tomorrow I'm going to work on a nail polish haul post for you guys to check out... I was going to do it tonight, but lookie what was waiting for me when I got home!

Yep! I couldn't let this wait til tomorrow.... I HAD to show you guys what I got in my Birchbox this month! This is my second Birchbox... You can find the post about my first box by clicking the tag over there to the right! I absolutely LOVE getting this little box every month! If you don't know what Birchbox is, basically you pay $10 every month, like a subscription. Every month around the 10th, you get a little box in the mail filled with "deluxe samples", based on things that you're interested in (you fill out a beauty profile in your account; skin and hair type, color, the things you're most concerned/interested in, etc). Many people have asked me if I think it's actually worth the money spent every month.... Well, let me just let the products do the talking. :)

I thought it was cute that this months Birchbox is travel based, considering I just got back from vacation. Ha!

Opened! I love the care that they take when packaging the box... Everything is so pretty! 

The first thing I grabbed was the Laura Geller Baked Blush & Brighten compact. This was a super great treat, because this is NOT a sample... this is a full size! This make-up alone triples the value of what I spent on my Box.... Yes, that's right! This retails for $30! It's not so much of a blush as it is a bronzer, I suppose... It's a pretty honey color with a shiny shimmer. I can't wait to try it tomorrow... It seems to give that perfect "summer glow"!

Next, there's the Amika Obliphica Oil Treatment (anti-frizz and nourishing protection for your hair... Will try this tomorrow!) and Pangea Organics Toner. I'm pretty excited to use the  toner!

I also got a few smaller packets: 2 Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pads (self-tanner wipes... I'm going to give these to a girl at work) and some Pangea Organics Balancing Oil (I don't know that I'll use this on my face (it's oily enough!!), but maybe... We'll see!)

I also got a sample bottle of Kate Spade's Twirl perfume. I love this scent! It's fresh and fruity! I actually like it enough that I -might- buy the full sized!

There you have it ladies... my second Birchbox! Over all, I'm pleased, just like I was last month! Like I said before, the blush/bronzer makes it worth it by itself, but all of the other stuff too?? Ladies, if you have been thinking about subscribing for a monthly Birchbox, DO IT! You won't regret it!! You can get your very own monthly Birchbox at!

  7. I was going to sign up for this last month, but didn't only because I didn't want to get up and get my credit card. Ha! Now that I've seen another picture of how awesome the 'samples' are, I'm getting off my butt! I can't wait!!!
