Hi everyone. Sorry for the lack of updates. I should say that I’ve been very busy, but the truth is that I’ve been playing Wildstar with my friends and it’s taking up alot of my computer time lately. It’s like WoW meets The Sims. You can build a house, and people get ridiculously creative with the housing. You can do quests too but who wants to do that when you can decorate?! But, I digress.
Birchbox has a new coupon code today to receive a bonus pack of five samples. If you spend $50 or more in their Sample Sprint section (products from Cynthia Rowley Beauty, Number 4 Hair Care, Dr. brandt skincare, COOLA, and Atelier Cologne) you can get a sample pack with an item from each of these brands. The code is SAMPLESPRINT and the offer ends August 3rd. (Quantities are limited so if you want one, better hurry).
Last night I did some shopping on the Birchbox site myself. I picked up the Modern Mermaid box for my mom’s birthday (don’t tell her!). It costs $44 and their shipping is normally about $5.95 or so. I used a coupon code for 20% off, added $10 worth of Birchbox points, and got free shipping with my Aces program membership. My total ended up being $25. I ordered this before bed late last night and it’s already shipped out. If you aren’t doing your Birchbox reviews for points, you are MISSING OUT. My points also qualified me for another year of Aces, so I’m already qualified through the end of next year. (Aces gives you free shipping on every order!). Seriously, Birchbox is amazing. If you haven’t tried it yet, go check it out.
For the August box they sent out emails letting you have a choice in what you get. You could choose to pick one of your samples (from about four choices), you could choose to get the regular August box, or you could get the Affordable Luxuries box which had products whose full size was under $35. I selected the Affordable Luxuries box because it includes the new Benefit push up eyeliner and I’ve been wanting to try it.
That’s all for now. I’ll try to get a pic up of my July Birchbox soon and an eyeliner review posted. Thanks for reading!
