In this month’s box:
IMG_1077Better late than never right?  I got this box a few weeks ago, filmed the video for it, but never took any pics.  This meant that I really couldn’t do a blog post on it with out any pics, that just wouldn’t have been right of me!

Anyhow, I wanted to share with you all what I received in my August 2013 Birchbox.  I’d like to think that I got some real goodies.

The box as it was packaged upon receiving.  Cute hot pink tissue paper, right?
IMG_1081I’m especially excited about this lipstick.  It’s a fun coral peachy-pink color.  Perfect for the summer and even upcoming Fall.
IMG_1082Not quite sure what I’ll do with these too.  I can’t think of a reason that I would need double stick body tape any time soon or feet wipes.  I will say that they will be awesome for travel, since they are small and pocket-size. – That’s kind of the fun of Birchbox is that you can get some awesome stuff and you can get some random stuff.
IMG_1083I’m all for a good moisturizer and eye cream!  IMG_1079Check out my video below for more!


July 2013 Birchbox Unveil


Here it is, July’s Birchbox and the goodies I got in mines:


I have to admit that I haven’t even used one single product from my May and June Birchboxes.  Its not because I’ve been lazy, its been quite intentional.  I have been trying to decrease the amount of products I use while being pregnant, because I don’t want to put a lot of different things on my skin with baby in tow.  Skin absorbs anything you put on it, and thus its gets into my system and passed to the baby.  I will however have tons of products to try out once baby is here, so I’m super excited about that.

Yes, that means the reviews on my different Birchbox products won’t be out until several months from now, but rest assure I will delve into a few of them. 


In the meantime, for your viewing pleasure I have included a few pics and my Youtube video on July’s box.

First Birchbox | May 2013 Birchbox Unveil

I’m a little late to the game but I finally signed up for Birchbox.  If you haven’t heard about it, its basically a box of samples your get in the mail monthly.  The samples can range from makeup, haircare, skincare, fragrance and even lifestyle products.  For example in my Birchbox I received a Cargo Water Resistiant Blush, COOLA Classic Face SPF 30 Cucumber Moisturizer for Face, Isaac Mizrahi FABULOUS Issac Mizrahi Eau de Parfum, Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Sensitive, and Runa Guayusa Tea.  I am excited to try out all of the products, with the exception of the tea since its green tea and that’s not at the top of the list of things to ingest while pregnant.  Its only $10/monthly and I think it’s a fun surprise to get in the mail and a good way to try out different products.

Many of the products are on the higher-end, so without maybe someone giving you a sample at the makeup or fragrance counter, you wouldn’t have an opportunity to try it out without purchasing it first.  I also decided to purchase the Birchbox subscription, because I figured once baby is born I won’t have any opportunity to get out and about and shop for myself too much.  Baby’s coming in October, so the means the holidays will be right around the corner, which means no shopping for me, but mostly for family and loved ones.

As I try out each product I’ll more than likely do a post on it, if not once I try out all of them.  Also, the products your receive are based on your profile that you fill out when you sign up for the subscription, so what you get in your box is tailored to you.  If you watch reviews on Youtube or come across other’s posts on their Birchboxes, they may differ from yours.  It took me a sec to figure this out, until I went back and watched Birchbox’s actual video for the May box on Youtube.  I’ll tell you that it was reassuring, because I thought I was missing something.

Happy Bumping!
