Happy Tuesday loves!
First things first, I’m running my 1st ever guest post at the Anna Delores Blog today! Go check it out and follow Emily while you’re at it! 🙂
I thought I’d share a few thoughts about my monthly subscription to Birchbox. I’ve been subscribed since June of last year and while I love receiving such beautifully wrapped packages every month, their are a few downsides. Here are some shots of my last 3 boxes:
I was hoping to love the May Gossip Girl box since I love that show but it fell a little flat for me. Highlights of my year in Birchboxes did include a new obsession with Philosophy products, a full size Luxeffects Essie and my beloved twistbands. I’ve had some wonderful experiences with Birchbox customer service when a few items arrived damaged and they awarded me extra points which I used towards purchases. I also love collecting those adorable brown boxes they come in!
In about a year, I collected enough points to buy $80.00 worth of products. At $10 a month ($120 a year), I’ve discovered some great products I love (including a full size Essie, a Zoya I used for Mani Monday, a free Baublebar bracelet and more) so I’m undecided on canceling it (mostly in fear that the next box will be amazing). Gah, I’m also just terrified of change in general. Haha…

Anyone else have experiences with Birchbox? I’ve heard of other services like Glossybox and Julep Maven and I’ve been tempted! Can anyone vouch for your personal preferences??
