Birchbox Wishlist

A few days ago I opened my inbox to find some exciting news– after attending the Delivery Man screening courtesy of Birchbox last week I was selected to receive a Birchbox gift card! (I guess they liked my twitpic of my boyfriend and I waiting for the show to start.) I am beyond excited and thankful to Birchbox for these pennies from heaven. Since I found out the good news I’ve been trolling the Birchbox site trying to decide what to order, and because I’m not spending my own hard earned cash I figured this was the perfect opportunity to be a little extravagant and pick up some luxury items I wouldn’t normally buy for myself. Here’s what I’m eyeing so far…

Birchbox Wishlist

Have you tried any of these products? They all came as recommendations from my favorite beauty bloggers and vloggers, so I’m pretty confident I’ll enjoy them all. If you have any suggestions of things you’ve loved from your monthly Birchbox (or that can be purchased in their shop) please let me know! With the holidays coming I’ve put myself on a bit of a low-buy (not quite a no-buy, but trying to really reign it in), so this little gift from Birchbox couldn’t have come at a better time. I’m excited to try out some new products and report back on what I love and what’s really worth the hype. See you back here tomorrow for the Weekend Wrap-up. Until then…

Weekend Wrap-Up: Delivery Man & Birchbox

This week’s Weekend Wrap-Up is coming to you a day late so I could tell you about  a special event sponsored by Birchbox that I attended last night.  Birchbox’s theme this month is “More Good”– giving back, giving to others, and indulging yourself too. What could be more perfect  for Thanksgiving and the upcoming holidays? To celebrate the “More Good” theme they hosted an advance screening of the new Vince Vaughn movie Delivery Man for some of the NYC Birchbloggers and I was lucky enough to get two tickets.  We met up with the Birchbox team at the Crosby Hotel in SoHo last night for the screening and were  lavished with sodas, popcorn, and complimentary Birchboxes on our way out!


My boyfriend loved digging into his Birchbox Man box, and is even debating signing up for his own monthly subscription. (And I’m hoping I can get him to do a guest post once he gives everything in this box a good test run!) Since I know my monthly Birchbox is on the way I figured I’d stick with the “More Good” theme of the evening and pass my box along to a fellow beauty loving friend. I hope she enjoys it!

Overall the movie was fun, with lots of laughs and a few “aww” moments.  I would definitely recommend seeing it with your family when it hits theatres soon. After the screening we stopped by a local bar for a couple of drinks to continue the date night– overall a pretty fun Monday!

Have you seen any great movies lately? My sister and I love watching movies together when we’re home for the holidays, so I’m looking for some new additions to our “must watch” list. Leave a comment and share your favorites!
