January 2012 Birchbox.

It feels like Christmas all over again – my Birchbox arrived yesterday! Yay! Of course I ripped it open like a mad woman, anxious to see what goodies I got this month. Much to my delight, there was a snack in there which couldn’t have come at a more appropriate time – I was starving! It was a vegan Larabar which is made of dried fruits, nuts and spices – so yummy. A healthy alternative, there are no additives like high fructose corn syrup – perfect as I am trying to eat better this year and beyond.

The theme for this months box is clarity. Exhale. Highly appropriate for my life right now. Also included (not pictured) are a few healthy tips to set the tone for the new year.

Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash

This couldn’t have come at a better time as my face has a complete mind of its own if that’s possible. I’ll find something, it’ll work beautifully for a little while – my face gets too used to it – it becomes unusable. My face is the most Diva part of my body…my belly takes a close second – although it’s less like a diva and more like an unwanted house guest that refuses to leave.

Archipelago Pomegranate Body Soap
The smell of this soap makes me feel like I’m in a hotel. I feel like I’ve used this soap in at least one places I’ve stayed at over the years. I can’t wait to test it out!
STILA Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner
Stila Cosmetics holds a dear place in my heart, as it’s the first makeup brand I’d ever spent money on. I was either 16 or 17, I was on vacation in Miami and purchase one of their lipglosses in Bloomingdales with my aunt. Yes, I remember all of that. This product isn’t joking when it says smudge proof either. I drew it on my hand right away and tried to scrub it off to no avail.
Juicy Couture – Viva La Juicy
Me and perfumes don’t really get along – most of them are too strong and make me sneeze. I’ve been wanting to test out this particular one, but I can already tell it may be a bit too much for me. We’ll see.
…and finally a little magnet…I’m gonna put it on my fridge!
Once again, I’m thoroughly satisfied with my Birchbox – can’t wait for next month!

    I've never heard of birchbox but it seems wonderful!! Oh, and I love checks and balances. I worked at Origins for 5 years and that was one of my absolute favorite products! But now I sell Avon so I am trying out their stuff.
