Happy 2015! I hope that the New Year brings you many new adventures. I ended 2014 and started 2015 being sick AND one of my kittens is very sick. The good news is that after a lot of rest and cuddles, we are on the mend. A special thanks to Netflix and cozy blankets for getting us through this tough time lol!
As a Christmas gift, a friend gifted me a subscription to Birchbox Canada. I think this is an amazing gift and getting goodies in the mail every month makes me very happy. I got my first box in mid-December and loved it. As I said, I’ve been sick, so this post is about a whole month late, but I figured better late then never.
A little info about Birchbox: Birchbox is a monthly beauty subscription service. The box includes five personalized (you fill out a beauty profile) beauty samples that range from hair products, makeup products, and body products etc. The box costs $10 a month plus $4.95 shipping in Canada. You can purchase your box in bundles to save a little and can even gift subscriptions. You can also purchase full-sized products on their website if you enjoy the samples!
I thought that the box was super cute and I enjoyed the “Hi There!” that features Canadian landmarks and the matching pink tissue paper. I`m going to include the information on the info card that came with the box including the prices for the full sized items and I will work out and include how much the sample sized products I received are worth. Hopefully all of this info is helpful.
