Boxed in

I am completely and utterly obsessed with fashion clubs at the moment. Besides belonging to The Gilt Group, Haute Look, Rue La La, Ideeli, Enviius, Beyond The Rack probably every other sample sale fashion website out there, I am also paying a stupid amount of money for cheap shoes on Shoe Dazzle, Shoe Fab and now Sole Society – none of whom, apparently, understand that concept of flats. Ever. Probably thanks to Kim Kardashian.

However, I recently received a club shipment that I rather fancy. It’s called Birchbox and since I’m such an aesthetically oriented gal, the packaging definitely made me happy. Yes people, spend the extra few cents on the dark pink tissue! Yes, it does make a difference! The principle is pretty simple: deluxe beauty samples sent to you every month for $10.00, and if you like them, you’re encouraged to purchase the full size from

In my first shipment I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Pangea Organics full size lip balm I received in delicious Egyptian Fennel with Grapefruit & Sweet Orange – mmmm! There was also a tiny wooden eyebrow brush, a sample tube of Marvis Classic Mint Toothpaste that yes, I will travel with, and a couple other small samples. The bigger items made up for the smaller ones, and all round, I can’t wait for my next Birchbox shipment. For $10 it kept me entirely satisfied and New Beauty’s Test Tube for triple the price is really going to have to work hard to impress me now!
