Bulu Box - August 2014

I'm still not expecting much from Bulu Box after the past few months. It just hasn't been paying off, even getting it for ridiculously low. Bulu Box is a monthly subscription box with two different options, typical Bulu and weight loss Bulu. My fiance subscribes to the weight loss one due t…

Graze Box - Nibblebox

Like I've mentioned before, you can get the box weekly, biweekly, or more often if you prefer, and it's always $6/box. Using my referral link, you can get your first and fifth boxes free. You can also cancel at anytime, and review items to decide if you want to get them again or never. Also…

Ipsy Glam Bag - August 2014

This month, Ipsy offered a chance to get an early look at your Glamroom by doing simple tasks, such as sharing on Facebook and subscribing to some Youtube channels. I did it, so I knew way before my bag arrived what I was getting. I wasn't disappointed by sneaking early, but part of me hates th…

Love with Food - August 2014

This month's Love with Food was a little late, must be payback for getting it so early last month. For those that don't know, Love with Food is a monthly food subscription box that has organic or all-natural snacks. 
There are two sizes, the Tasting Box and the Deluxe Box. The Tasting Box (w…

Birchbox CEW Awards Mass Appeal LE Box (August 2014)

Last week, Birchbox released two limited edition boxes based on the 20th anniversary of the Insiders' Choice Awards. These two boxes teamed up Birchbox with the Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) which highlights the best products available currently available. They did two boxes, this one with Mas…

Graze - Calorie Counter Box

It's here, my (fiance's) Calorie Counter Box from Graze! Alongside the Nibblebox, they are now offering (or perhaps they have been and I never realized it before) a Calorie Counter Box. You get the same four snacks in your box, but all snacks have between 50 and 150 calories. I have both my…

Birchbox CEW Awards Prestige Headliners LE Box (August 2014)

Last week, Birchbox released two limited edition boxes based on the 20th anniversary of the Insiders' Choice Awards. These two boxes teamed up Birchbox with the Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) which highlights the best products available currently available. They did two boxes, this one with Pre…

Boxycharm - August 2014


Boxycharm is a monthly subscription that costs $21/month. They have monthly themes and send items based on those themes. I've seen boxes average 4-5 items, but some have more items. All of the boxes in a month are usually the same (shades may vary), which is good for spoilers. You also have the entire month to sign up and still be eligible to get that month's box. Shipping does take some time, though. They post that they have 5-10 business days to send you box out. They have a referral program and getting referrals gets you a free item from their shop. This box came fairly quickly, took about a week from ship date to arrival (shipping email took a few days to come, though).

This month's theme is Beach Babe and the box includes all kinds of summery items! The only sad thing about summer boxes is that they always include bronzers, which are useless to me! (Super pale girls problems.) Here's my box!


Their boxes are always so cute. It might always be the same, but I always love seeing it.

Birchbox - August 2014

Once again, we all know I am loving Birchbox recently. It is the 'original' subscription box and I will probably keep it forever, at least for the points.
Birchbox is the original subscription box, and it's still going strong. Even when the box isn't the greatest, I'm always happ…

Birchbox/Ipsy Spoilers August 2014

I was loving that Ipsy allowed us the opportunity to see our bags early by only doing a few easy things! But I was sad because even though my Birchbox shipped quick, it took forever to update (and then re-update to the correct box!). But here they are, finally!


First things first, I'm not sure …

Allure Sample Society - August 2014

So this was my first month getting Allure's Sample Society and I was blown away! I allowed myself to be surprised, mostly because I didn't know they did spoilers! While I'm already happy with this subscription, I will give it my customary three months before deciding whether or not I wa…
