Beauty Alert! Birchbox Edition


As a total beauty and fashion junkie, I love to read magazines and blogs to keep up-to-date on the latest trends. I follow quite a few beauty gurus on YouTube and subsequently read their blogs, tweets, etc. One particular guru, MissGlamorazzi, has a dailybooth account. As I was checking out her pictures, I noticed in one photo, she was holding a beautiful box and had a huge smile on her face. The girl has great taste and I knew whatever was inside was likely pretty cool. I was struck by the beautiful packaging and read the words on the box, "Birchbox".

I know that MissGlamorazzi lives near San Francisco so I assumed it was from an upscale boutique. I googled "Birchbox" and was delighted. Birchbox is a service that sends you four to five deluxe beauty samples each month for $10. It's a great way to try out new products from high-end luxury companies like NARS, Stila and Laura Mercier.

I'm not sure if I'm going to subcribe for the year but for now, I did sign-up for one month. My Birchbox is expected to arrive on or near February 10th! It will be a nice post-25th birthday gift slash early Valentine's present to myself. I'm obsessed with all things miniature or beauty-related, so this type of company is right up my alley.

I'll hopefully post a haul video next month on my YouTube channel but I will definitely blog about my first Birchbox! :)
