Welcome back!

So, I told myself I was going to be canceling my gift sub this month but I've been dragging my feet. Still undecided! I need a little sneak peek!

I told myself this after the goop box last year... still haven't cancelled it lol

I actually canceled one of my accounts this month I was very proud that I actually did it!  I clearly seem to get "better" boxes on one account then the other to the point I traded the whole box away this month. So I finally canceled it.

A lip color that actually works for me, eye shadow, no hair products. I'm overloaded on them. A second ruffian color. I wouldn't mind if they sent out more of those like they did with the wanderlust collection, although I don't see that happening.

I would love a hand cream so I have a small tube for my purse. I always welcome more lip products, even though i have plenty.

I'm weird but I want that cute little bottle of toner from benefit that they sent a month or so ago. It'd be perfect for travel.

Yes, I've been wanting that too!  The bottle is so cute, I know I would reuse it for something else.

OT - I'm having a great day!

 

1. I got an invite for a Birchblogger breakfast with Alison Raffaele (founder of an eco-friendly cosmetics line that will be sampled in the October Birchbox). The breakfast will be at the Birchbox office and a makeup gift will be given to us, including her Reality Base Foundation.

2. I was given a verbal job offer at a magnet hospital in NYC.

3. I had some fun mail (Nars and MAC giveaway prizes).

Thank you! I will definitely update this MUT thread. I *think* this may be the first time local-NYC Birchbloggers have been invited to the Birchbox office (I'm a new Birchblogger, so I'm not 100% sure about that). Only 12 of us were selected for the breakfast (based on twitter activity), so it'll be intimate. :)

Thank you! It'll be my first job as a nurse practitioner. I'm currently working as a nurse and I'm going to miss it!

Actually, I have Ipsy to thank for my recent influx... I got a Pixi mascara in my August bag, an Elizabeth Mott (she also makes the Lash Cards) mascara in my Sept bag, and I just hosted an Ipsy + Benefit LashBash so I now have a huge tube of They're Real!  

 

I have so many from various subs and GWP's that I'm going to be passing them out like candy at Christmas!  Uncle Bob might not like his, but you can't please everyone, right?  :roflmao:

They could always throw in a panty liner or a tampon and label it a "Birchbox find" or "Birchbox Beauty Extra".. Lol

Ditto the heavier moisturizers/hand creams & jewel toned eyeshadows! I'd love to try a berry/wine lip color too (maybe a stain?) 

 

I spent some time a couple nights ago going through both my profiles and re taking the quizzes on both, so I'm anxious to see what my October boxes will hold :)

I tweaked mine a little too!

I would loooooove a full size of They're Real! But I just have soooo many mascara samples that I can't justify spending the money on one! I even traded away the full sized Mally Mascara that I got in my Sept BB since I just didn't want to deal with it.

I just took a look at the line on BB and I would love the luminizer!  This will be my second month for Birchbox.  I loved September and can't wait to see what October has in store!

That is sooo exciting!!! Congratulations! If you don't mind sharing some gossip about Birchblogger event?  ;)

I'd like to sample a concealer. I got one (mineralogie maybe?) at the beginning of last year when I first stared subscribing but that's it! We got a new puppy a few weeks ago and I could use something to cover up the resulting circles under my eyes!

Yes all of this! But I will gladly take color liners, blush, lipstick and any other pretty makeup item they want to send.

I finally got around to trying out the Davines spray, and I tried spraying it on my hands then applying to the hair as suggested. It seemed fine and I didn't have any problems with it being particularly drying, but it's not exactly a groundbreaking product for me either.

Love the light waves! I have hair envy. My stick straight hair takes a lot of effort to be not stick straight.
