The Fabulous Birchbox

About a year ago, one of my good friends told me about this thing called Birchbox. She said that every month you get a gift box in the mail with different high end samples. Well me being the girly girl I am I wanted to do it too. She said that it was only $ 10 and every month the box changed. See I love trying out new products and I will spend the extra money if they are worth it butttt it can get pretty expensive buying full size products if you aren't sure if they are right for you. So I wanted to share this month's box with you.
My face lights up every time I see this box. It's like a surprise present to myself every month.

The first thing I pulled out was Comodyness Self-Tanning Intensive. Now I am normally not a self- tanning person because I have olive skin and stay pretty tan but this is perfect for a last minute event.

Now these cuties I just love. I am always looking for a file and never seem to find one around the house. With the Tweezerman Filemate Minis I can put all around the house, that way I always have one at hand.

I am pretty excited about using the Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser. I think this year I have really started focusing on taking better care of my face. There is just no way I can be like I was in college and have nights where I sleep in my makeup and don't wash my face properly. If I did that I would probably look like an old lady at 30. And nobody wants that :)

I love when I get nail polish in my box because well I am pretty obsessed with all shades of polish. It always makes me feel girly and I enjoy nights where I can just sit back and do my nails and relax. (As you can see my nails now, I need a touch up)

Now this might be my favorite thing in the box. I have just recently started wearing lipstick and I think it is so fun to change colors to go with different outfits. This Laqa & Co Lil shade is pretty perfect for these summer evenings to come.

So there you have it, The Fabulous Birchbox. Let me know if you are interested and I will sign you up. It is so worth the 10$ a  month!!
