Birchbox: December 2012 - Page 22

post #631 of 2321

I can't believe it's time for Dec boxes already!  I just found the Dec thread and see people have already gotten boxes.  Gives me hope that BB has worked out their kinks of late.

 

I think I'm hitting sub overload.  Even if my box has something new and fun, I've got so much stuff already that it just gets lost in the pile.   I might be canceling some just to get through my stash.

 

And of course I need to weigh in (GROAN...sorry, I can't resist a pun)--I lost 60+ lbs 3 1/2 yrs ago with Weight Watchers.  I've been at my goal weight (which is less than I weighed when I was 15 yrs old!) and keep it off by continuing to track my food, going to meetings, and running.  I've now run a marathon, about a dozen half-marathons, and countless races at shorter distances.  I was even featured with my husband (he lost 40 on WW) in WW magazine.  I can't speak for anyone else, but WW worked for me because it allows me to eat anything I want--just not unlimited amounts of it.  And if I want to eat more, then the trade-off is that I need to exercise more.

Nice! One I ordered is a gift but I'm still deciding whether or not the other one will be as well!

I wanna know how the fortune cookies were! I think they could make a good middle Chanukah gift (where you run out of present ideas and want to save the big ones for the last night haha!)...

I got a chocolate pack at Trader Joe's that is kind of like the Chuao chocolate sampler to give my mom for a couple nights...I guess I should feel funny giving bacon chocolate for Hannakuh, but my family stays about as Kosher as a lobster boil.

They were delicious. Gone before they could be included in the pic.
On a side note, it wasnt a great 'fortune'

Bahahahahahaha! That's awesome! Mine is the same way! I won't do pork but I don't really follow anything else- my dad wanted to have a pig roast when I graduated high school! I saw they had a chocolate passport at Trader Joes but I bought one of the fancy teas and local honey for one night and I feel like the fortune cookies fit that theme perfectly!

It has always just been a pet peeve of mine


haha omg!!!! me and my family went to a chinese buffet this weekend and my sister in laws "FORTUNE" said BLESSED ARE THE CHILDREN FOR THEY WILL INHERIT THE NATIONAL DEBT.................... WTF!!!!!!

 

my bfs said "MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL AND MEN NEED ROOTS"

omg this looks amazing.  i've never used it but i just downloaded it - this could be my savior! thank you for sharing!  

 

and as for the people considering buying more chocolate, i bought four boxes when they came back in stock.  i have to admit that only two of them are gifts...

No, no I mean switched over as in, it says "December box shipping info" but no tracking number yet. I wish it had my box contents on there!

So I watched the sneak peek video, and I am a little excited. However, after the aweful disaster that was my goop box, I have been on the verge of canceling my sub. Now I've racked up enough review points to get a free box, or I could stick it out after December for another month and get $20, buy something nice for myself and cancel the sub. Or I could keep the sub if they stop sending me cut rate department store samples as "deluxe" sizes and NEVER send me a luna bar ever again. Last month for me wasn't horrible. But unless they promise some better sample sizes for the new year, I'm about through.

It's great! I block everything except school related things for 2 or 3 hour increments and then give myself 10 min breaks! It's so helpful, especially for writing papers because you can still research but you aren't tempted by fun sites! 

 

As for the chocolate- calories don't count during finals right?! :)...and the BB points are a bonus!

oh ok. gotcha. i'm not gonna lie, but i ran over to the bb site as soon as you made that post, haha

post #643 of 2321

I just checked the Birchbox site, and no shipping for either account of mine yet and my boxes havent updated from November.  Mine seem to be always the last to update and the last to ship.  I do love them when I get them though.  I adore Birchbox!

 

There seems to be a lot of great products this month.  I'm hoping I get the clarfying shampoo that was in the sneak peek video.  I use a lot of Orofluido everyday - I put it my hair when its wet, and then again once it's dry.  I'm not really sure if there is buildup or not, but I would like to try a clarifying shampoo and that appears to be the best one I have seen.  I also wouldnt mind getting the blush they are sampling this month.  Or a skincare item.

Good for you! It's always great to hear success stories!

I totally know what you mean by sub overload. I have soooo many samples.. They just keep piling up, but I just can't cancel my 2 BBs

I first got them in my Birchbox sometime last year and I have been obsessed with Spicy Maya ever since.  It is amazing!  I also like Firecracker but that might just be because I'm also obsessed with pop rocks.  They used to have one with Coconut that I liked as well but I think they did away with it when they changed their look.

Free Birchbox man box with a $50 purchase.  Its the BB man box that has the knit tie and the duffle bag so it seems like a pretty good deal.
