Happy Mail

One of my favorite things about being an adult is getting mail. Call me crazy but I love going to my mailbox and seeing what surprises lay inside. Do bills get me down? Sure! But usually a beautiful glossy catalog or a party invitation or even a letter from a friend definitely outweighs anything negative that can find its way in my box. There is even that once in a while surprise check from my insurance company that says I paid too much! I always call my hubby first and ask him if it is real or a gimmick, then I cash that sucker as fast as my car will take me to the bank! Yesterday in my mailbox I had this beauty waiting for me:

I'm new to Birchbox so those of you that have heard about this wonderful service just ignore me.  For $10 a month (and free shipping) you get a box filled with beauty product surprises. I've never been big into beauty products but since mother nature decided that it's time I started showing my age my interest has been increasing in the latest trends. I'm discovering that you could easily rack up a fortune buying product so this was a good way for me to sample products before committing to shelling out large amounts of money on a product I might only use once or twice. 

This month my box included the following:

Evologie Intensive Blemish Serum
Twistband headband
Whish Shaving Cream
Youngblood Mineral Radiance Moisture Tint
Madewell Emery Board

I also love that you could have these sent to someone as a gift...brilliant idea for the hard to buy for friend! I am now on the hunt for more monthly box clubs to join. Do you know of any good ones?


  1. Hi Wendy! I'm crazy about snail mail too! I wish I received more personal letters like when I was a teenager. It is so much fun!

    1. I agree Rosa! When I was little my BFF and I used to write each other letters over the summer when we were visiting relatives out of town. Those were great times! I remember trying to pick out the cutest stationary and matching stickers!

  2. I love mail! I've been debating between Birchbox and Ipsy. They both cost the same per month and I've heard good things about both :)
