ANNOUNCING: BIRCHBOX X SUITS

 

If you’ve been a Birchbox subscriber (or reader) for awhile, you know that we’ve had some pretty awesome partnerships: Teen Vogue, Gossip Girl, and Women’s Health, to name a few. This July, we have yet another exciting venture coming to a Birchbox near you—we’re linking up with USA’s hit show SUITS to celebrate the Season 3 premiere July 16!

Need a refresher? Get up to speed with this excellent synopsis from the snappy gents of Birchbox Man:

If you haven’t seen it yet, trust us: You’re missing out. The show’s main characters, Harvey and Mike, work at a high-powered New York law firm. Harvey has a law degree from Harvard. Mike, unbeknownst to everyone except Harvey, doesn’t have a law degree at all. The series is smart, stylish, and absolutely addictive. And the clothes? Second to none.

On a sultry summer night, what’s better than a juicy series featuring sharp-tongued, well-dressed individuals? In our opinion, not a whole lot. (OK, a pint of ice cream would make it even better.)

But the SUIT-ed fun doesn’t stop there. We’re also giving you the chance to win DVD box sets of the first two seasons, explore stylish picks from the SUITS team in your July boxes, and discover exciting content (hint: Check our Youtube channel for more very soon!).

Stay tuned for more updates!

xo,
Birchbox

Interesting... I've never seen the show, but I am going to law school. Do they have female attorneys on the show? Also, are we sure this isn't just for the men's boxes? Oh nvm, this site says the women's box will be a "partially-themed Suits box:" http://adage.com/article/media/usa-s-suits-birchbox-themed-box/242072/

U G H I'm so over Suits. Season 2 ruined everyone for me, especially when they kept trying to bus my favourite character Donna (well ruined everyone except Donna. And Jessica because Gina Torres is fabulous). >| Angry face. And I've been over Mike/Rachel since the moment they tried to push it on us (episode 1). So.

 

But one thing Suits has going on for it is that it always looks super classy because lawyers (l o l), so I'm totally up for this collab. And I mean grown-up classy and not rich high schooler classy, Gossip Girl.

 

Please please please don't disappoint me this month Birchbox. The last two boxes have been crap for me, and I have 6 months left on my yearly. I really don't want to cash out if I don't have to, so you got two more boxes to impress me again.

The managing partner of the law firm is actually a woman.  One of my favorite shows right now. 

 

But knowing birchbox, I can totally see them products for guys in there to cross-promote their BB man box.

Yes! They have Jessica Pearson, who is actually the name-partner of the firm ;D She's fabulous, HBIC (and a WoC!)

700

 

 

And also Donna, one of the main character's assistants who is a fab redhead HBIC. She's not a lawyer, but she's basically the most awesome person alive.

700

You said it, Donna.

 

And Rachel who... well a lot of people like I guess and her actress seems cool but I want to stab with a pointy spork no offense to you Rachel, sorry. :|

700

She is really pretty though, and smart and put-together, so I wouldn't be upset if she were an inspiration for the box.

 

 

I'm super over the show, but I do like all the female characters in the show much better than the male characters. Though the male characters are fine and men in suits in general is very hot. Overall, a good collab/theme to do. Looking forward to this.

The only times they've done it was during Christmas with a sharing theme and last June for Father's Day (or something like it). So I just don't see it happening. Though you can never tell with Birchbox. If they do it though, it'll most likely be something on the unisex side.

the show looks a little too male centered for my liking, but as long as the boxes are good, i won't complain.

True fact. At the end of the day that's the most important part! :)

Is Birchbox usually consistent with their shipping?? I'm new to beauty subs in general, but it seems like they all tend to ship at random times..

i'd say so, i get a tracking on or around the 10th of every month. of course, with any company that's doing a lot of business, there are going to be exceptions to the rule who fall through the cracks. but i think their CS does a good job of taking care of it.

Birchboxes also ship by the 10th (in theory). If yours doesn't, I think they give you points to make up for it. Your box contents will be revelaed by the 10th even if you haven't received it yet

Oh, Awesome! I was wondering if they posted a pic of the box with contents once shipped!! So, it's similar to Sample Society, then??

Box content pages go up on the 10th of the month. Some boxes will have arrived by the time the pages are active.

Ok, I'm highly skeptical... What, exactly, is a "partial-theme"?  I'm going to reserve judgement until I see the spoiler video for this month, but right now seems like a might-be-great-might-be-insanely-bad. 

 

(Of course, I'm hoping for awesomeness!)

    • This Advent Calendar sounds amazing!! Thanks so much for sharing!!
    • I am going on a No Buy (replacements only) in January and February. My goal is to pay off a credit card of $140 (accounting for interest, I will need to pay off around $150), and to use up my deluxe sample sized beauty items. The same resolution I have every year, but this time it's different. I'll be paying off the last in a very long series of mini debts I had in my debt snowball, after two years of paying things off. After that I'll be going into a different phase, working on larger debts. Also, I am starting with far, far fewer sample beauty products than I used to, having used so many up in the last two years.  It's exciting, getting to the end of this phase. I'm going to be going through my samples in the next two weeks and getting ready! It's a good way to start the year, with smaller goals and easier wins. 
    • Do you like card games? for example poker?
    • Advent calendar: Day 8 - Bright red nail polish - Polish was so easy to apply, and lasted well. I got several compliments on it.  Day 9 - At the Heart of Pine Trees Holiday Shower Gel - a fresh orange scent with a soft wood note.  Day 10 - Apricot body scrub.  Day 11 - Hydrating micellar water.  Day 12 - Plein Soleil Perfume - I love the perfume! It is tuberose with a hint of cardamom, to evoke travels to the East.  Day 13 - At the Heart of Pine Trees matching body lotion.  Day 14 - Mango Coriander Shower Gel.  I've been feeling the pressure of the holidays this month! I've been frustrated, because I have not been able to make progress on paying my credit card off by the end of the year. It's looking like it's not going to happen. I wanted to pay it off by the end of the year just because of perfectionism. Since it was the last in the series of smaller balance debts in my debt snowball, I thought it would be nice to have it done by New Year's Eve and start January with a larger goal. After having a relaxed day (I went to the park for a walk and saw baby deer!), I finally thought of something that made it okay to defer that goal a bit. I realized I won't be finished with my mini beauty products by the New Year either. I have far fewer than in past years, but I'll still have some to get through. I always had the concept of using my mini sample products and paying my smaller debts (the easier goals) and after that was through, I would use up full sized products while paying off larger debts. After thinking of that, I felt it would be okay to make a new plan and give myself January and February to pay my last small bill ($140) while using up the mini products. Then in March I can begin work on larger debts and larger products! I did achieve all of my 2019 New Year's Resolutions, and paid off five credit cards this year, and I'm very happy with that. I'm not going to go on a shopping spree and buy myself a lot of things with credit cards, but I do need to make it through Christmas!       
    • I think Makeup brushes are a base for makeup, especially for this set of makeup brushes, highly recommended.
