I love getting fun things in the mail and I also love me a good beauty product so when I found out about Birchbox I was all game! I immediately signed up and patiently waited to get accepted (side note: what is it these day about web sites making you wait to join? not a fan.) I finally got the email saying i was 'in' about two weeks later and two weeks after that, I got my first shipment.

For those of you not in the know, Birchbox sends you a box of beauty and lifestyle samples once per month for $10, which includes the shipping fee. They wrap it up all cute like for you too! You then can buy full sizes of whatever you like through their web site for a discount. Highlights of this past month's shipment included hair oil, which I had always wanted to try and really liked and these stick on eyeliners. Haven't had an occasion to rock those yet, but I think they are going to be fierce! Although every item might not be a hit, some will make for great travel beauty supplies. I can't wait to see what next month brings!
