Happy Monday everyone! This past Friday was iPhone frenzy Friday and even though I had no initial desire to get an iPhone 4s on its first day, I fell into the vicious trap called consumerism. Woke up at around 8 AM on Friday, checked fb and noticed all the buzz about iPhones! My mind started to play with the thought of trying to beat the crowd waiting in line at Apple stores by going directly to AT&T. After no success with calling the stores, I decided once and for all that I've invested too much time (15minutes) already to not get an iPhone 4s today! Off I went, driving like a maniac to the closest AT&T store. I saw a line in front of the mall waiting for Apple but didn't spot any AT&T lines. I went straight to the store and managed to bum rush through the security guard. The man working with a clipboard told me that I needed to wait in line outside-- I pulled my best "I didn't know" face and successfully avoided waiting in line! Score! Here's a picture of my we iPhone 4s and my first Birch Box that I received in the mail!
If you haven't heard of Birch Box, it's a personalized beauty box that gets delivered to your door step each month. For $10, you're supposed to get a few deluxe sized samples that were selected for you based on an initial survey you fill out. It's a great way for any beauty lovers to try out new goodies without having to break the bank! If you decided that you do like the products, you can then go to their website and purchase them and earn points! I waited very anxiously for a month to finally receive my box and I'm super excited to share it with you!
I love the packaging of the box. It came in a mailer and once you open the mailer you'll see another cuter little box. It's a box within a box!
I was surprised to see how small the box was. But then again, these are just deluxe sized samples so it made sense that the box wouldn't be too big! Inside, I found all my goodies wrapped in purple tissue. If I had to rate the box solely on the packaging, I'd definitely give it an easy A. A little card inside welcomes you to the box system and on the back describes all the goodies in the box.
Here's what was inside the box!
Was I impressed with my personalized selection of beauty products? Not at all! I remember mainly checking off skin and make up products to try and I felt like my box didn't really reflect that. It didn't cater to my selections in the survey but with that said, it was super exciting to get the box in the mail!
By the way, just wanted to show off my new view at my new job! It's my grown up job in the financial district. Hooray for cubicle life!
I went wine tasting with the lovely gang today and took a bunch a pictures! I'm going to try to post them soon but I've been so behind with posts and comments but I really do read them all! Hope you're all having a marvelous day!
