January 2015 – Boxycharm Unboxing!

Hello my lovely readers!

The Blog has been a little quiet the past few weeks, huh? We’ve been dealing with what seems like endless snow storms the last few weeks in Massachusetts. Now I know what you’re going to say – you’re from Maine, aren’t you used to it? You never get used to the snow. I never have been, and probably never will be, a winter lover. So with that being said, my last 3 work weeks have consisted of cramming work into 4 days. I’ve been a little preoccupied to say the least.

Before we get started on tonight’s post, I want to start off by saying that I know that this post is a little delayed. But! Get ready to jump for joy because I am about to incorporate another feature into the Blog – its one that will be popping up here each month.

Since we haven’t chatted in a while, I’ll give you a little back story on how this new feature came to be.

I am one of those stereotypical girls who is addicted to social media. Every time I have some down time I’m indulging in Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube. Now, when it comes to YouTube I usually look for product reviews on makeup that I’m interested in.

I recently stumbled upon KathleenLight‘s channel and have fallen in love, people! If you don’t know who Kathleen is, I highly suggest you visit and subscribe to her channel. She is gorgeous, has an infectious bubbly personality, and offers her viewers an honest review on a variety of cosmetics. Simply stated, she is adorable.

In a few of her videos she talked about a monthly subscription box that she is part of. I’ve always been a fan of the idea of signing up as a member for one of these types of things, but never really found one that I fell in love with. That is, until Kathleen spoke about BoxyCharm.boxycharmlogoWhat is BoxyCharm you ask? Well my dear readers, unlike Ipsy or Birchbox that send sample sizes…

BOXYCHARM is a monthly beauty subscription box, delivering full size, high-end and chic products right to your door.

A few quick things you should know about Boxycharm:

  1. The subscription fee is $21 a month (that includes shipping)
  2. Each month has a theme and the products you receive correspond with that theme
  3. You receive 4-5 products each month
  4. Unlike other subscription boxes where you take a quiz and the results determine what products you are sent each month, Boxycharm sends the same products to each subscriber

Needless to say, I took the plunge and signed up! I just received my January box and thought I would share with you what I got! Can you tell I’m excited!?
