- winning a giveaway -

My first giveaway that I have ever entered was on Bold Brash Beautiful and to my surprise, I won!
(Thank you Melissa J!)

I actually decided to enter because it was a 3 month subrcription to Birchbox, and I got an invite to Birchbox before but was hesitant to try it cause I was curious as to whether I would like what I was given. So this was a great chance at being able to "test" out Birchbox .

So this was my little introductory box, I am happy with it because I don't really have any other box to go off of, and I thought it was pretty cute. I can't wait to get the next boxes so I can get a better feel of what Birchbox has to offer.



boscia | Green Tea Blotting Linens
Harvey Prince | Eau Flirt
tili | Bags
twistband | Hair Tie
Jouer | Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Birchbox Pink
Gloss Moderne | High-Gloss Masque 

This post is a little late, the first time around when I was trying to get it up, a certain nosy cat made the Jouer lip gloss disappear, it's so small so she thought it would be great to play with...I wasn't very happy with her after I searched for about 30 minutes for it. (4 days later I found it)

I have only had a chance to use the boscia Green Tea Blotting Linens, I would say they are probably just like any blotting paper and they resemble the blotting paper by e.l.f

On another note: I wanted to say thank you to Beatriz for being so kind and sending me an email with photos of her friend at a Military ball! The pictures helped and your friend looked lovely! Thank You!

  1. Congrats on winning the giveaway! I really want to try a monthly subscription box like this but I'm so picky and I'm not good with surprises when it comes to beauty products, haha. However, it does seem like it'd be fun!
