{currently coveting} BIRCHBOX


WHY is this the first I have ever heard of Birchbox?  OMG, what an amazing idea!  You all have known about this for a long time now, right?  (I know, I know...I live under rock, far far away from America.) Ok, just humor me and let me tell you about this fabulous concept.  Birchbox is a monthly subscription that sends you 4-5 beauty samples in a beautifully wrapped box with a bow on top (don't quote me on the bow...).  Swoon.  And, it's $10/month.  Are you kidding me?  And these are not just any beauty samples, Birchbox features brands like Laura Mercier, Marc Jacobs, Korres, Stila.  Oh My!  Sadly (very, very sadly) they don't deliver outside of the US.  So please, if you're reading this (thanks, by the way!) and you live in America, JOIN BIRCHBOX!  Do it for me.  Do it for you.  And for those of you who already have a subscription, please tell me about it!  What products have you gotten?  Do you love them and use them all? 

Does anyone know the history of the company or the founders?  I love a good story, especially for a company or concept that I just adore.


Oh and ps, this is in no way, shape or form a paid endorsement of Birchbox. I'm just really that excited about this company (and also really that deprived of luscious beauty products...)

I got my first birchbox this month and was completely disappointed =( I'm giving it one more month because I'd heard a lot of people were disappointed in August, but that's it. The August BB wasn't anywhere NEAR as awesome as the ones pictured =(
Crossing my fingers for September, because it is an awesome concept.

thanks!! I'll definitely be posting about September once it arrives at the house. I loved ONE thing from the August box, the hair ties lol I went out and bought more. Sephora carries their own brand of them! Same thing different name, A LOT cheaper haha
