Birchbox and Swap

My much anticipated Birchbox arrived today in the mail. I learned about Birchbox from  Kate raved about her little pink box that arrived monthly. After pondering for a few months I decided to take the $10 monthly plunge.  After seeing the goodies inside today I am really glad I did. Each month a new box will arrive with different beauty samples.  Love.   

Inside I found Six Samples. 

Benefit Cosmetics
-The POREfessional

Harvey Prince Perfume
(love the smell!)

-Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Birchbox Pink
(love this color! Does not look as bright as color in bottle which I am thankful for!)

L'Oreal Professionnel
-Mythic Oil for our hair
(smells amazing! Used in my wet hair after my shower tonight. Feels really soft now that it has dried!)

Prep Showstoppers
-Designer Fashion Tape

Recharge EBOOST
-Orange Natural Energy Booster

Fun to get my hands on products that I would probably never try.  I highly recommend!!

I joined a Cold Hands Warm Hearts Swap that I ran across on a blog a few months ago. I was paired up with Christina in Germany.  She has an amazing blog. Her package to me arrived late last week.  I LOVE to receive fun packages in the mail.  When I pull out the mail and see a special key drop out I get excited. My kids do too. They know a big package is going to be waiting in the large lockbox.  Christina is oh so crafty and made me a cozy headband with a darling flower pin and wrist cuff.  Cozy gloves and some panda stationary were also tucked neatly inside the package.  German gummy bears were devoured by my three kids very quickly.  Their favorite (as well as mine).  A beautiful heart and some dried oranges were also included.  Thank you Christina! Love knowing these gifts came from so far away!!

p.s. The gloves are the perfect kind of snug. Thank you!
