Today I came home to discover a surprise Birchbox!


My subscription ran out in March, so this was an extra surprise. I had received an email from Birchbox apologizing for not delivering the March box and sending a consolation, and assumed it was a wrongly addressed email.



Thank you Birchbox for the slew of goodies: amika Obliphica Hair Treatment, Isaac Mizrahi FABULOUS, COOLA Cucumber Moisturizer, and Cargo Lip Gloss.

My favorite is the extra find, a Pilot Acrobal pen.


It wrote in super smooth pink ink!
I love it!

It made me miss Lost Crates. I hope they come back.

Thank you Birchbox for this box of cheer!


I got this awesome Wild Cactus mini-nail polish from the February Birchbox and painted my nails.

Remember the last two times I said was going to cancel? That totally didn’t happen.

Instead I continued to re-subscribe every month, because I just love getting stuff in the mail.

I don’t wear makeup, so a lot of the Birchbox items don’t appeal to me. However, they’ve been good at giving me things I’d actually use, like shampoo and sunscreen.

For February, I got samples of Ghirardelli Milk & Caramel Squares (tasty), Dr. Jart+ Black Label Detox BB Beauty Balm (useless for me), Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle (smells amazing), Juicy Couture Couture La La (grooooss), and Color Club Fiesta Collection in Wild Cactus (favorite of the lot).

I very rarely paint my nails. Usually, after a couple of minutes of painted nails, I get the incessant itch to scratch off the polish because the color would look hideous to me. Thus, I was super skeptical upon receiving Wild Cactus. This lovely emerald surprised me. It made me feel awesome.

It now rests as my second favorite nail polish, with the first being my Wet n’ Wild from a super sweet friend.
