A couple weeks ago, after going on a Daddy-Daughter park date that ended in a "mail walk" as we call it, Ellie came bursting through the doors with a bright pink box outstretched.
"Mommy, LOOK what I haaaave!!!!"
She knows how excited I get for my monthly Birchbox--it's kind of become a family affair. :) She likes the anticipation as we open it up and explore its pretty packaging and colorful products inside. When she was a baby she liked knowing if something was for eyes or lips, and would walk around holding them there on her face, haha.
This month, aside from my four beauty samples, the "lifestyle extra" I got was tea (I think there were three different blends). But somehow I lost them in my mess of a house. They looked yum though! Maybe I'll find them the next time I'm looking for the Apple TV remote...
|Reparative Cream | Smoothing Night Cream | Eye Cream|
I haven't opened these little guys yet, but I love that they're 100% natural and vegan. My sis just said the other day that we might as well eat what we put on our skin, and that keeps resounding in my head anytime I put a soap or lotion on, haha.
|Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Cream|
|Inika Mineral Eyeshadow|
This INIKA eyeshadow is definitely a color I'd wear, and I really like what this product line is about. Plus I've always liked the versatility of loose eyeshadows in general (wet or dry, layerable.) [Tip: tapping the brush to dust off the extra, then "pressing" the brush into the lid tends to avoid it "spilling" under the eye.] I'll have to swatch this color for you guys and show it in another post soon.
The background cards you see are perforated little cards that go along with Birchbox's theme for January--"It's Go Time!" Check out their 20 Things to Try in 2014 "Go List."
What was your favorite thing in your January Birchbox?
P.S. Today David and I have been married for 6 1/2 yrs. :) In other words it's the day he answers the "How long have you been married?" question with "almost 7 years." To my glass half-full husband, I love you. :)
