July 2017 Birchbox Beauty Subscription Box Review

Box: Birchbox
Price: $10 monthly or $110 yearly
Category: Beauty Skincare Hair 
Cancellation Policy: If on a month to month subscription you can easily cancel via online account with a single click. If you are on a year long subscription you will need to email,call or online chat to cancel your subscription.

When I posted about the promo for Birchbox which included a $10 credit to the Birchbox shop when you sign up for a monthly subscription I decided to take advantage since I needed to order some more Benefit gimme brow anyways. ☺ Make sure to follow the blog to stay tuned for other hot promo codes like these when they are released. Birchbox sends 5 beauty, skin, or hair care samples monthly. Samples often vary for user. You also can choose one sample or a curated box too!
I love the actual boxes Birchbox comes in. This month was cute and reminding me of a southwest vibe. I got a mix of beauty,skin care and hair this month which I love the variety.
My goodies this month:
1. Marcelle 3-in-1 Micellar Gel Eye Makeup Remover- love the Marcelle brand thanks to many products tried through Birchbox. I wear mascara daily so this is a practical item for me. The gel is interesting but I like it and it is different than the usual liquid I normally use.

2.Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream- Huge Peter Thomas Roth fan and hyaluronic acid is a very hot skincare ingredient right now. It is supposed to be the best way to provide moisture to your skin and this cream did not disappoint.

3.Beautaniq Beauty Blush Serum- I love blush and is also a make up item I wear almost daily. The serum is interesting texture for blush but it stayed on my face batter than powder blush so I am pleased.

4.Fave4 Up for Air Air Dry Cream- new brand for me which is why I love Birchbox. Discovering new brands without full sized commitment is the best. During the summer m hair is frizzy often and this helps control frizz.

5.Oribe Apres Beach Wave and Shine Spray- My hair is very straight and it is impossible for me to get waves no matter how hard I try. I used this but no success on waves. Please if you have any advice on how to achieve waves with pin straight hair leave a comment!

Overall I loved my Birchbox this month and I am going to stay subscribed to get next month too! I missed my Birchbox and stopped because of product overload but going to treat myself for a couple more boxes.

Fun Email...yes there is such a thing,plus update on new must have app page.

I wanted to share a couple of fun new email subscriptions I stumbled upon recently.

Highbrow - offers different short courses you can sign up for. You sign up for a course via email and everyday they send an email with the daily lesson plan for the course. I did one on improving sleep and it was a 14 day course I believe. It was fun and informative. I looked forward to my daily email and fun little course. They offer free courses as well as premium courses for a fee.

The Skimm - a fun bite sized weekday news email. Monday-Friday they will send a email with the latest news. It is nonpartisan and takes a few minutes to read. Its a great way to catch up early in the morning and be up to date on the latest!

Blog Update:
I am working on a new page on the blog for apps that can earn you money. Keep your eyes peeled and make sure to follow the blog to receive updates. Here is a link to Must Have Apps page
Thanks for reading.

June 2017 Mindfulness Box Review

Box: Mindfulness Box
Price: $29 monthly through Crate Joy
Cancellation Policy: EASY Can cancel anytime via online account with cancellation link


      My treat to myself! I have been in (addicted) to subscription boxes for a few years now. Overtime I have kind of got to the point of having to much stuff that I don't use or just sitting around. I have since cut way back and really pick and choose if I am going to subscribe to a box. I am really trying to focus on self awareness so I love receiving my mindfulness box. It really just sets me up for reminding myself to take time and relax.
        The July box featured some amazing items as usual. Two aromatherapy items were included. The items were an organic crystal infused soy candle and a crystal infused mist. They both smell so amazing. The candle scent is so uplifting when the candle is burning. Perfect for meditation.
        The box also included brass string bells from India. These can be used as wind chimes or as a door bell. I love the sound they make. I still am working on the prefect place to enjoy them.
I am really into stones and crystals since I was an environmental science major in college. This month included a crystal window quartz(also called a seer stone). I love connecting with nature and crystals definitely help me with that.
        The last two items were a red abalone shell with a pouch of California white sage. White sage can be used for smudging which is new to me(so I am not going to give to many details and pretend I know a lot!) but it is a very empowering experience. Smudging helps remove negative energy.  The sage fits perfect in the shell and can be used together.
        Overall I love this box and as usual it made my day! This is a box that I actually enjoy and feel that it helps me focus on myself and bettering myself.
Thanks for stopping by and reading! Have an amazing day!!!
