Giveaway: Birchbox

Alright. After all that bio silliness, you know there are a bunch of things I am…and and a bunch of things I’m not.

And maaaaaaaybe at the top of the “not” list- is Beauty Junkie.

Well…wait a minute…unless we’re talking about nail polish. THAT, I know a thing or two (or a billion-ty) about.

But when it comes to makeup, and hair stuff (see…I call it stuff…clearly ignorant) I really have no clue about products. I’ve got a few staples in my medicine cabinet, and a small makeup case permanently stationed in my car for AM commute application (I know… I KNOW! Bad, Courtney!) but for the most part, I’m still rockin’ the same things I found in junior high. I just find the whole thing overwhelming. I don’t know what to try, what’s worth the money, and what will work for me.

But guess what?
It turns out I’m not the only clueless one out there.
I’m not the only one who is hesitant to make big investments into new products.
I’m not the only one who loves getting packages in the mail full of fun surprises!

And even better- there is a service for me, and all the other “not the only ones” out there (like you, maybe?!) The solutions to my beauty dilemmas (ok...a couple of them at least) is called Birchbox, and it’s rad. (That’s right, Rad. I’m still holding on to my junior high vocabulary too). Sign up for a subscription, and they'll send you cute little samples (and sometimes full sized products!) in the mail each month. And even better- the box is tailored to you! You fill out a little questionnaire about your beauty knowledge, preferences, hair type etc, and they send you things you’ll love. Beauty magic!

So when the beautiful and funny, (BIRTHDAY GIRL!) Elise asked me if I’d want to join her in a Birchbox giveaway, I was all in!

  1. Well, my birthday already passed, but... there's a lot of photography equipment I'm looking at ;)

  2. One thing I want on my next birthday is to have my attic fan fixed. I have asked for that the last 5 years we have lived in our house...I think its time to get it done! LOL

  3. Birchbox was actually on my list!
