    1. Me too! I almost forgot to do my December reviews, but I was able to post them today :-)

  2. i totally want that palette!

    1. I am really curious as to how they plan to sample it.

  3. Tracking says I will get mine tomorrow! Fingers crossed!

  4. I love the Glossing Shampoo and Conditioner

  5. Got my box today! Here is what I got:
    1) the Burt's Bee's lotion (same as yours.. Which I am kinda bummed about because this is labeled as a "find" and that means I am only getting 4 things plus the "find" which I have always gotten 5 things, 6 with the "finds" but oh well... I do like my box this month)
    2. My favorite... Nail Rock in navy blue velvet
    3. Second favorite... The Seasonal Pallet (I got four of the twenty colors... Two medium shimmery browns, a light gold-ish white and a matte black. It's a cute little sample. I was wondering how they were going to sample this!
    4. I got a fairly large sample of Klorane Dry Shampoo
    5. My 6th fragrance sample in a row (even though I asked for no fragrance and got a juicy sample last month ) of Juicy Couture Couture La La.

    Overall... Pretty good month. Better than last month. I am bit sure if I will continue after the Us box next month. I feel like I can get so much more bang for my buck with other subs, but it is still fun. Don't mean to be negative! I just love ipsy, blush, starlooks and glossy and feel like I get so much more for the price with them. I'm just a sucker for birchbox's packaging! Have a great night!

    1. EeP! You ,must be a nail girl like me! Did you update your survey about the fragrances? Because I seem to think I am getting a lot fewer since I did.

      I hear where you are coming from but I try not to get too swept up in the number of items they give, because I think it would just end up annoying me. I also do not make wish lists from spoilers, because I think that sets me up for disappointment. Now of course, there is sometimes an item that calls my name, but if I do not end up getting it, I just get it for myself. (That was a bit off-topic, I know ;-)

      You are not being negative, it is totally cool to share what you are thinking and feeling. Birchbox offers me different kinds of things from my other subs, and their points system makes up for a lot of their deficiencies (for me). But it really boils down to what makes you happy. :-)

      Thank you so much for sharing Kim! It was fun hearing about your box and your experience with it!

    2. You are so right... I need to not get wrapped up in all that and focus on what I do get. The points are amazing! Do you know of any other companies that do points like that? I know ipsy does, but you only get to choose from a couple things, and glossybox gives you a free box after awhile. Just curious :)
      And yes...I love nails! Anyway...I just love getting these boxes... It feels like Christmas every month!
      I am anxious to see what colors you got in your lil pallet! I wore mine today. I really loved the light whitish gold color. I've totally been into the lighter eye, darker lashes and eyeliner look lately. Have a great weekend!

    3. Hmm...other boxes have reward programs, are you thinking about just beauty boxes? I ALSO think they are like getting Christmas presents! They add a dash of excitement to each month and remind me to treat myself! I will share my palette when it gets here! I find the eyelook you describe is one of those great fail-safes that always look good :-)

  6. OOOoooo, I'm so jealous you get to try out the Revealed! Haha, I've been debating on whether or not I want to buy it, and I was hoping I'd get the sample! Can't wait to see swatches!

    1. Hey Girl! I would be happy to do some for you! I have both the Naked 1 and 2, but I am so freaking curious about this palette. You and I should touch base, I had a fun thought on something we could do. :-) It great seeing your sweet face here. I read your GB review the other day. :-) :-)

    2. Helloooooo! Yaaaay, thanks for the swatches. UGH, of course now I want it.....cause a girl can totally use a gazillion neutral shadows, right? RIGHT? Do send me an email with your ideas! I'd love to hear!

    3. Just sent you an email! And yes, I understand. It is a bit nuts, isn't it?
