Birchbox and Blog Awards

My January Birchbox has arrived.  I seem to receive mine about 5 years after all the other bloggers on the Blogosphere (maybe it is because I am in California).  You may have already seen this no less than twenty times on other blogs, but I'll go for it anyway, mostly because I am excited about my new loot:)  This is my January box.  

Algenist: Firming and Lifting Cream
FIX Malibu:  Immaculate Complexion Smoothing Cream
Juicy Couture:  Juicy Couture Perfume
Zoya: Nail Polish in Kendal
'wichcraft:  Granola
Plus a Birchbox magnet (in case you forget)

I have been having a lot of fun with my December Birchbox.  I have discovered some fun new products that I have really enjoyed (like the Mythic Oil).  I am looking forward to playing with my new items (especially that fab nail polish color).   Are you still on the fence, or have you jumped on board the Birchbox train?


On a completely separate note, the lovely lady who writes dreaming en francais bestowed the honor of Liebster Blog upon me.  I am very humbled and grateful.  She has a pretty terrific blog herself, so I encourage you to go check it out.

Liebster in German means dearest, beloved, or favorite, and it's for bloggers with under 200 followers.

The rules are: 
1. Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog
2. Link back to the blogger who awarded you
3. Copy & paste the blog award on your blog
4. Reveal your 5 blog picks
5. Let them know you chose them by leaving a comment on their blog

I have been discovering so many new blogs lately, it is going to be hard to choose just five.  Please know I love all of you!

Erin from Raising Kane....she makes me laugh...hard!  
Jax from Raviolis and Waterworks...she really explains it ALL via lists.
Emmy from Scarberian Fashion Lover...adorable kids and unique style (and, ok, I love the word Scarberian)
Mal from the Chic Geek....she has the most original ideas for topics
Michelle from twentynine...she has a great sense of humor about the world around her (plus she is planning her wedding, and I want to see how it turns out)

Thank you everyone, for reading my blog and your lovely comments.  They continue to make my day.

Birchbox sounds like so much fun, and I've thought about signing up! Then again, I never use up all the products I already have.

Mandy@OrangeAutumn said...

Birchbox sounds amazing every time I read a post on it, but I still haven't made the plunge yet. I think I might just have to live vicariously through you all! Congrats on the award. You have a cute blog!

Lorena said...

I wish we had something similar to Birchbox here... and this month's box is totally new to-me. I had not read about its contents until now, which only make me want it more. The nail polish would have made me jump up and down.

Tina Lane said...

Congrats on the award and enjoy that Birchbox. This is the first I am hearing of it, though it does sound like fun.

B said...

awww, thank you so much!

Elisa @ Globetrotting in Heels said...

I have Birchbox envy! I'd love nothing better than a package with a few surprise goodies once a month, but being in Switzerland, I am doomed to be the last ever to enjoy this type of service :-(

Hence my need for bits of retail therapy here and there - totally justified, right? (see what I did there?)
