To "Birch" or Not?

Oh Monday......we meet again! 

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!  My weekend was very uneventful!  I had no plans and the Mr. worked Saturday and Sunday.  Basically I vegged out all weekend.....felt so good!  I did want to share with you one outfit post since this is a fashion blog.  I went to the supermarket on Saturday night and this is what I wore.

Blazer: Forever 21
Shoes: Kohls
Handbag: Michael Kors
Shorts and Tee - old

Ok now the reason for this post!

Have you sweets heard of the latest beauty craze called "Birchbox"? 

Birchbox is a really great way to try out sample size beauty products of things that you normally might not try, or be able to afford.  When my friend told me about this I just had to check it out!

There's a fee of $10 a  month and every month you receive a box in the mail with 5 different products to try out, if you love it you'll be able to rack up reward points on their site to purchase a full size!

Has anyone tried this?  Is it worth it???  What if you don't use any of the products you get???  Should I try it???  I mean it is only $10 a month!

Also, lets not forget Father's Day!!!!  If your having a hard time finding a gift for dad they have a Men's Birchbox for $20 a month!  Would your dad or honey like this? 

I'm really debating ordering this so please leave your comments if you've tried this and either love it, or hate it!

Have a good day!

  1. Hi Melissa! I did Birchbox and LOVED it! I actually got a few products that I loved so much I bought them after my sample sizes ran out. It is so fun to get the box each month and I would look forward to trying out all the new products. I definitely recommend it!

  6. I do birchbox and just got my June box. I've been doing it for the past few months and I love it. I get so excited everytime it comes in! I never ordered a full size but I enjoy the samples each month. You might not completely love it all the time, but I've been able to use a lot of the products. Try it out! You can always cancel it.

  11. In Austria we have a similar thing, called "Glossybox". I´m always excited about the products in the new boxes- it´s a good "investment" i´d say ;)
    I have posted about the Glossybox before, feel free to check it out at

  12. I know this is a little late-- but I wanted to let you know that I get Birchbox and LOVE it. While I may not love everything in each box, there is something I fall in love with EACH month. I end up purchasing something every time! I hope you decide to try it. It is fabulous!
