Birchbox!!


To say it's been awhile since my last blog would be an understatement. I keep saying I'm going to blog and then never make the time for it. I've become one of those girls that we all hate who spends almost all of her free time with her boyfriend. barf.

Luckily, my friend Kristy, of Little Miss Running Pants, has lit a bit of a fire under my booty. Several months back I decided to check out Birchbox. If you have never heard of it, it is a monthly box of high end beauty and lifestyle samples. It's pretty much a girls dream. At only ten dollars, it is worth it just for the sheer excitement it brings when you see a new one in your mailbox. What also makes it worth it is that you are given a chance to test out products that you may not have bought otherwise, perhaps due to price. This way you can test out the products and if you don't like them you don't have to feel guilty for spending a ton of money... BUT if you DO then you can buy the product with confidence in knowing that you've already tried and and like it. It really is a great idea and to be honest, I'm almost upset that I didn't do it sooner.

Now, back to Kristy... she was one of the first to know that I had decided to join Birchbox and when I got my first box she asked me about it. Rather than telling her everything that was inside, I told her that I was going to do a blog on it that week so that she can see what it's all about. Now, here we are, a couple of Birchboxes and a couple of MONTHS later and I still haven't done that original post. She asked me again today about it and I decided thats its! I need to get this done...I'm going to do it today!

So... I've decided to kill two birds with one stone for this post. I will finally be doing my review of my first Birchbox AND I decided to do it in a video/vlog/whateveryouwanttocallit. PLEASE don't judge me too much on this video, like I said, it's my very first one so bare with me. It's hard to know where to look and which direction is which and I found myself stumbling over my words and saying "um" "uh" and "and" a lot. Still, I feel like a video is the best way to really show the box and I'm glad I did it. So, this one's for you Kristy... enjoy! <3
{Side note: for some reason the video skips in a couple of spots. I didn't do any editing to the video so I'm not sure why it cuts out but... you'll still get the gist}
