May's BIRCHBOX: Gossip Girl Inspired!

Hey Loves!

Back in January, I mentioned in my Birthday Haul video that my best friend, Brittany, gave me a 3-month Subscription to BirchBox. For those of you who aren't familiar with BirchBox, it is a monthly subscription service that sends you luxe beauty samples every month, fun & neatly packaged in a cute box, for only $10/month. My gifted subscription to BirchBox ended in March, but I quickly signed-up to renew my subscription so I don't miss out on any boxes! Getting my BirchBox in the mail each month is like a mini Christmas! haha I love coming home to a bright pink package on my doorstep. I can't possibly wait to open it up & check out all the goodies inside that await me!

I have this month's box pictured above. This month's box was inspired by Gossip Girl. If you guys don't know already, I am OBSESSED with Gossip Girl. It is my favorite TV show! You will find my glued to my Television set every Monday Night from 8-9PM. haha I LOVED this month's box, so I knew that I had to share it with you guys. I know that there are a vast number of Beauty Guru's who do BirchBox videos each month, which is why I've never shared my BirchBox(s) with my subscribers. But I loved this box too much to not give it the attention it deserves. Instead of filming a BirchBox video, like I know tons of gurus will do, I've decided that from now on I will do a monthly Blog post dedication to the current month's BirchBox. This way, if any of you really want to check out what I got, you can just head over & read about it on my blog, rather than do the same video as everyone else will pretty much do month after month. It'll give you guys the option to see or not to see. haha

Without further ado... I'll get right to this month's box!

Each box contains a note card explaining the current month's box. I will include pictures of each item and list the product information that is listed on the back of the card. 

Arquiste - Flor y Canto
"A fresh blend of sweet blossoms, this white floral scent takes inspiration from an Aztec festival circa 1400."
Fullsize, $165

Caudalie - Hand and Nail Cream
"Nothing sets off a glossy new mani like super-soft skin, and this French brand's antioxidant cream definitely delivers."
Full-size, $19

FusionBeauty - LipFusion Balm
"This moisturizing balm has a gentle (read: no stinging) plumping formula and goes on super smooth."
Full-size, $22

Ojon - damage reverse Restorative Conditioner
"Repair stressed strands with this aromatic hair treatment-exotic ojon and monoi oils work together to smooth and hydrate hair."
Full-size, $25


"Text messages are no match for handwritten notes on fun, modern stationery."
Set of 12, $10

So needless to say, I LOVED this month's BirchBox. I know that a lot of other Beauty guru's have cancelled their BirchBox subscriptions, because they don't like what they've been getting in their boxes. But I find that the longer your subscription lasts, the more BirchBox learns about you and your Beauty preferences. My boxes just keep getting better and better!
