New Limited Edition Boxes

Recommended Posts

Birchbox just posted two new LE boxes Vanity Affair and Home Sweet Homespun. I entered the contest hoping to win the Vanity Affair box. Both boxes are appealing to me,I don't know if I want to wait for the others to be revealed before placing any orders. I currently have 700 points to spend.

I love both the LE boxes that have been revealed.  Are there more Holiday LE boxes coming or is this it?  

 

I need more points for all of this!!

I'm so torn as to whether or not to buy either since they said they're releasing tons of limited edition boxes this holiday season.  The only products that jump out to me in the Vanity Affair box are the Tata Harper, Shu Uemura, Tocca and the By Terry Baume de Rose (I have been dying to try it out forever!) but the rest of the items are super giftable so it would still be a good deal.  The Home box seems pretty great too.  Does anyone else just love the boxes they come in?  I wish Birchbox would sell gift boxes in their shop similar to the ones they use for limited edition boxes.

Both boxes are adorable, but all I could think watching the 2nd video was "Wow, Katia is SO much less annoying than the staff members who usually do their videos" 

 

Anyone else feel the same? Ten time more bearable to watch in my eyes, with less high-pitched fake excitement and she actually talks and acts like a normal person.

Ack these are both so nice! Seriously making me reconsider opening my second account (where I currently have 300 points saved) to use a 100 point code...Not only do I want the boxes for myself, but I do think that they would make great gifts! Hopefully we have lots of good 20% off codes and whatnot during the season for all these boxes! I'm so excited to see the others!

I think the Love with Food box videos are 10x worse with the faux giddy than BB videos.

 

There was a moment at the beginning of Katia's video that I thought she was trying to seduce the box AND the viewers.  Odd.

Liking the home box! I already have the whole set of the Rosanna vessels and not really into those snap trays from the other box so the other box is pretty meh even though a few of the products would be nice to try.

Would it be too much to ask for someone to list the contents of these? I'm at work and can't watch the videos, but the curiosity is killing me!

I really like the home box, they should be releasing them this week. However for anyone in nyc all the boxes will be in the soho store by the 11th :) I think there may be one or two more LE boxes as well as two(I think) men's LE boxes coming.

i was SO digging the vanity affair box, up until I saw the $98 price tag. it has a lot of awesome stuff in it, but i don't want to spend that much on JUST makeup/beauty stuff (which is why i really liked last year's holiday box even though the price tag was a little high, it had a mixture of things...i just like variety).

I have the points points and I like the idea of the home one but I never seem to get myself to pull the trigger on LE boxes.

this was me last year, as soon as i was done deliberating and decided to buy it, they sold out >_>

Very, very tempted by the Home Sweet Homespun box... mostly for the cookie mix and the actual box itself though. XD

I totally just ordered 2 of the Homespun boxes using the code TAKEOFF20. One for me and one for my sister!

The Homespun one actually looks really nice, especially as a gift. I kind of wish the Vanity Fair box had a piece of jewelry in it like last years Precious Metals box, I'm still kicking myself for missing out on that one. But I will definitely be getting a Homespun box if it doesn't sell out in the next two weeks!

I ordered that Milk Bar mix a few weeks ago, they were so decadent! Warning: the instructions are for a stand mixer, not everybody has one.  I'm sure folks could figure out a translation to hand mixer, but they do work differently.  

 

Also, delicious?  YES.  Would I spend $16 on cookie mix at the grocery store?  Nope!  You can't beat free with points, though.  

 

I'd probably go for the Homespun box if I hadn't just tried these.

I totally bought the Homespun box... I really want the Vanity Affair box too but I'm not sure the price point is enough to make me pull the trigger.

    • I mostly prefer k-beauty products. I use Missha foundation, I have been using this from last 3 years. It has different shades we can choose according to our skintone. And also I have suggested this to my friends and cousins, they all are every satisfied with this products. I always prefer to shop from Althea beauty store for all k-beauty products, because it provides best discounts on products.
    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now. 
    • Men with gray hair are often flattered for their distinguished looks. Timothy Olyphant, John Slattery and other stars demonstrate the attractive face of gray hair. We hope they help you discover the cut that will best suit your gray hair. Take a look at these three guys in the photo above. The photo on the right shows Adam Lambert (born 1982), who is the youngest of the three. He probably doesn't want to praise senior citizens, but instead prefers to wear his voluminous gray hair to stand out from the crowd. Some young stars like Adam Lambert and Kelly Osbourne love to wear gray hair and enjoy playing with cliches. Of course, such characteristic appearances draw the attention of young Hollywood-obsessed youth. The white hair mixed with natural colors in the heads of young stars attracts more sure looks that lilacs, pinks or greens and go unnoticed. In the photo Timothy Olyphant (born 1968) appears in the center, as does his hairstyle. His “salt and pepper” hair near his temples and on his beard makes him look naturally distinguished and adds the appeal of the hair growth products for african american hair mature man who knows who he is and what he wants. Why change something that works so well? This can also be applied to John Slattery (born 1962), on the left of the photo. Almost all of John Slattery's hair lacks pigment and is therefore close to the transition from silver to white. His modern hairstyle and carefree demeanor show a person who knows how to step forward without getting nervous. No wonder it arouses as much admiration as desire.  Best hairstyles for men with gray hair Whatever the way that stars and celebrities wear or (pretend to) assume their gray hair, since they discover their first gray hair, most men (or women) have only one emotional response: “Oh no! Get rid of them! ” After the first shock of noticing that time passes while we don't realize it, most men at least cut their hair or shave off their beard that is starting to turn gray. This reaction is very constructive. In the photo, Matt Damon demonstrates how interesting haircuts are for men with gray hair. This is also the most popular hairstyle of all time for men with gray hair. George Clooney teaches us how to wear gray hair with style and class.     It can take a while for people to get used to the idea of having gray hair. It is best to have a strategy when the first isolated gray hairs cannot be hidden or plucked for much longer. Why not let gray hair mix freely with the rest of your mane? Adam Lambert, Timothy Olyphant and John Slattery (see photo above) demonstrate how to do it with class. Jeff Bridges, with his shoulder length gray hair and thick beard, is the image of a nature lover, like his younger colleagues, Charlie Hunnam and Jake Gyllenhaal. https://folexin.info/ https://skincellpro11.weebly.com/
    • Love the placement and subtlety of the cat eye and subtle cut crease.  It looks gorgeous. I'm trying to perfect the cut crease with white eyeliner lately.  I've only practiced it twice so I have a long way to go.
