Destination: Disappointment (Birchbox)

IMG_0446Hmm, this is not a post I ever expected to write. I heard about Birchbox last year some time but I forgot about it until about a week ago my Bloglovin’ feed BLEW UP with people raving about the February box, so I thought you know what, I love finding new products and brands so I’m gonna try it! This was Tuesday and it arrived today, so a fairly quick delivery. However, it was dropped off by a couple in a clapped out Ford and the seal was broken with a piece of Sellotape over the top.. I opened the box and it was the official box, despite initial worries! I opened up the box and I was first wowed by the classy box and the practical drawstring bag, but the actual products I couldn’t help but think *meh* I was never expecting full-sized products but seriously?! The samples were tiny.

Overall, I feel like I didn’t get my moneys worth out of it, but hey ho, it could just be February’s box that isn’t Wowing me, so who knows March’s may blow me away! One thing I do have to mention are the little cards with tips on one side and quotes on the other which I do like and two of them have taken place above Johnny Depp on my cork-board in my bedroom! I’m not giving up on it yet! On the flip side, something or someone I am LOVING at the moment is Blogilates! Yeah, Cassey Ho is my god right now, she says ‘Jump’ I say ‘How high?’ well actually, I’m more ‘No. my muscles, don’t make me do that’ but I know it will be worth it in the end when I’m on a Turkish beach in August!
