I usually never have problems with shipping, but this month my tracking still hasn't updated, but I got the "Your Box Has Shipped!" email on the tenth. I know others have waited longer, but it's getting a little frustrating. Alright, I try not to be negative on these things.. Looking forward to receiving my box and hoping it comes before the weekend!

The sub I gifted myself runs out this month. Weird that they would send it to the email address I used to gift the sub, but I feel better now. Thank you!
  3. Have any other current subs gotten a "We Want You Back!" email today? I have a yearly sub, so I'm not sure what's going on - it should go until next October or November. There's also a "SUBSCRIBE TODAY yadda yadda yadda JOIN NOW" ribbon when I visit their website, yet my subscription status is ACTIVE. Has anyone else dealt with this? I will probably shoot them an email or give them a call... ETA: I got the email at 3:07 CST.
  4. From the app, looks like I'm getting: Main sub: Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Creme Ahmad Teas Nail Rock Paula's Choice RESIST Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Mascara 2nd sub: Camille Beckman Glycerine Hand Cream INIKA Mineral Eyeshadow Ahmad Teas Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser Starter Kit OmniPotent Duosity Happy I'm getting different boxes this month as last month I got dupes. My only dupe is tea, which I'm okay with seeing that I'm a tea fiend (although I got a gift certificate for loose teas for Christmas, plus have some already, so I have more than enough). Excited I'm getting at least one 100% Pure item, even if it is mascara. I think it's shaping up to be a great month!

This is what I got in my Welcome Box in November, although I'm sure they change it up fairly frequently: Bain de Terre macadamia oil NOURISHING CONDITIONER Bain de Terre macadamia oil NOURISHING SHAMPOO Evologie® Stay Clear Cream Supergoop!® City Sunscreen Serum theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac *Edited because I didn't like how the post looked... haha.
  6. Oooh, 100% Pure! I've been wanting to try some of their products for awhile now!
  7. If the discovery method is accurate, I'm getting dupes and receiving 2 of: Chuao Chocolatier Chocolate Bars (I've been wanting these! yay!) Number 4 Non-Aerosol Hairspray (eh...) Salt of the Earth Aroma Bath Salt - White Ginger Salt of the Earth Whipped Body Creme Color Club Cocktail Hour Collection Looks like Box #7. Bummer that my first month with 2 subs are dupes (not technically my first month... 2nd sub got a welcome box last month) especially since there are so many variations this month. Blah. At least I want two of the Chocolate Bars and will probably use everything but the hairspray!

The Pfister Hotel also does a tea service that's not horribly expensive. The tea was good and it made me feel all fancy! Fava has locations in Brookfield and Greenfield. I moved north of Milwaukee within the last year, but I'm still there often. I'll take a trip to Whole Foods next time I'm in town! I also had no idea the Pfister had a tea service; sounds fabulous! Thanks for the tips!

I'm going to have to check that out! I became obsessed with loose tea when my former boss recommended I go to Fava Tea (locations in Appleton and the MKE area for my WI ladies). So many yummy flavors... Their blueberry rooibos is to die for (as is their lemon meringue), but I'm a huge fan of their mint green tea. Loose teas can get expensive, but you can get a few cups from the same leaves - I find that a few ounces last me forever. Sorry, tea tangent.
  10. Oh - YES! Moisturizer! I need to find a HG moisturizer, so I'd love to get one in my box. In the warmer months I'm fine just using my BB cream, but Wisconsin winters are rough on my skin, so I need something more than that right now. I love Juice Beauty's oil-free moisturizer, but it's a little too pricey for me right now. Oh BB gods, pleeease send me some moisturizer!

I am really stoked about the Chella pencil and was hoping to get that one when I saw the sneak peek for this month's box so yay! =) Woo for being box twins! I'm mildly excited for the Chella because I haven't tried it yet, and I've liked Chella products I've received in the past. And welcome to MUT!

It's going to be a GREAT week, but I'm getting way too impatient waiting on all of these goodies.
