Novem-brrrrr Birchbox

Happy November!
 
(I know it's already the 16th but I haven't blogged yet this month. Whoopsies!)
 
It's finally starting to feel like fall (though there are still some gorgeous California days sprinkled in).
 
November is when the holidays are in full effect, retailers are pushing Christmas onto us full force. I've seen the words "Black Friday" more times than I've seen the word "Thanksgiving" lately which, to me, is kind of sad. We should be given this chance to give thanks before the mass media shoves the latest electronics down our throats. I don't know how they manage to do it but each year it seems like Christmas comes earlier and earlier. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not some ba-humbug scrooge who hates Christmas. I love Christmas. I just wish Thanksgiving was given it's chance to be celebrated before Christmas is forced upon us.
 
That being said, I received my November Birchbox on Wednesday. The theme of this box was "Give", very fitting for the month of November. Finally, someone not skipping right over Thanksgiving! So, without further adieu... here is my review:


*Sidenote: No matter WHAT I do, the three "thumbnail choices" for my videos are always AWFUL... thats why I tried to make a little title screen... I thought that MAYBE it would let me choose that as a thumbnail but obviously... I was wrong. Haha.*

I hope you get a chance to spend the next week giving thanks and really celebrating what Thanksgiving is all about.

xoxo,
shea
