Birchbox Love

I am not very good at being a girly girl.  Terrible at it.  Yes, I wear dresses and 4” heels almost daily, but I don’t give a damn about products and potions.  They are so freaking boring and way too labor intensive.  However, I recognize that I am getting older and I should care about what I put on my face.  That is why I signed up for Birchbox.  This girl needs all the samples and tips she can get while making as little effort as possible!

Check out my first box that arrived this afternoon.  What a lovely Monday treat!

Viva la Juicy La Fleur | Juice Couture
A little too sweet for my taste and Fred sneezes as soon as he is within 3 feet of me.  Might be a good dog deterrent or even good in a smelly pinch?  Like if I forget to put on deodorant one day.

Lavender + Clary Sage Hair Powder | Lulu Organics
Haven’t used this yet, but I certainly need it.  Washing your hair M-TH is not a major priority when you work from home.

Pomegranate & Fig Lip Butter | Mox Botanicals
Wearing it now and I just made sure it was husband approved.  No stickiness or shiny residue left on my man.

Mary-Lou Manizer | theBalm cosmetics
Haven’t tried this yet, but it happens to be the perfect color for me.  That must be why Birchbox made me fill out that survey.  I will need some serious application practice and youtube consultation.

Hair Tie | twistband
Love!  I have been wanting one, but I have been too lazy to search for it.

Last but not least is the plastic bag in the photo.  I was a little confused when I first saw it; it is much too fancy for leftovers.  Then I read the card and realized it is for all my beauty products.  Of course it is!  It is way more sophisticated than the ratty Ziploc bags I use.  Someone is movin on up in the product world…one Birchbox sample at a time.
