And The Winner Is...

And the winner is....Heather at Josh's Girl! I left a comment on your blog Heather and if you could send me your mailing address at, I will put your package in the mail! Thanks to all of you who entered the give away. This has been so much fun that I plan to do some more in the future!!

And speaking of getting a surprise package in the mail, I get one every month.

I ordered Birchbox about two years ago and I have really enjoyed the monthly Birchbox that arrives in my mailbox filled with fun sample products. ( This is my own opinion...I am not receiving anything in return from Birchbox for this blog post!)

Every year the boxes have a different design. This year's boxes have blown me away with their great graphics.  And this box comes boxed inside a pink box for mailing. Birchbox really wants you to feel you are receiving a gift in the mail.  When you sign up for Birchbox you will fill out a form that pinpoints your own beauty problem areas. This company takes into account your age  which really impressed me.

Here is what was in this month's box...the goodies are nestled in a pretty yellow tissue paper.  Cartier Basier Vole is a romantic floral scent. It did smell good but I put it aside for my daughter in law, Katy, as I have a "signature" cologne that I use and I am very pleased with it's scent. The White bottle is Dr Jart Ceramidin Liquid. It is for hydrating skin. I love Dr Jart products and I have ordered several things from his line after trying the samples. The Rusk hair care, Restyling Cream, is one I set aside for Katy as well. I seldom re style my hair during the day, other than brushing lip gloss is Stila, which is another great product. It is going to Katy because it is a coral color and I prefer pink. W3LL People sent me this is all natural. I never have to purchase mascara anymore because I usually get a sample just as I am using up another sample mascara! My favorite product is the Nectar Thermique. I will be purchasing a full size product.  My friend, Sharon, and I were talking about what a time we have with our wavy hair..especially in this hot humid weather we have had down South. You put a small amount of the nectar on your damp hair and blow dry. It makes my hair feel softer and protects it from the heat of styling tools.

I enjoy being able to share things with Katy...she is a busy stay at home mom and I love to treat her with things that are not in her budget right now.  So that is another plus of being a Birchbox member. Daughter Amelia does get some things too while Nancy prefers to stick with the tried and true.

So if you have been wondering about Birchbox, maybe this post will help you decide if you want to subscribe to this service.
