Winter 2015 Box of Style: Spoilers!

Recommended Posts

I just realized I don't think I ever came here to talk about this box. I thought it was awesome. I think I'll use everything (lip crayon not as much) but it really felt like I kept opening things, which I love. I'm glad I had seen spoilers because I almost threw out the hairpin - I thought I had opened everything and then was like "wait, wasn't there something else?" I still haven't figured out how to use it other than with a bun. My hair is super fine and it won't stay in. But I love sparkly and I love hair stuff, so I'm happy to figure it out.

 

Random question, are we generally "supposed" to wear Bobby pins with the bumpy side facing our scalp? I've never done that before and I am curious as to whether that's just the particular design of this pin, or whether I've been using them all wrong!

 

Oh and related, I was looking through Instagram trying to get an idea of how people were styling the hair pin, and I came across a post from Lelet that said that BOS asked them to make 10,000 for the box. I wonder if that's their approximate subscriber base then? I am always curious about the behind the scenes sub box stuff, so I thought it was interesting!

The answer to your bobby pin question (and other life mysteries). Spoiler alert: bumpy side down! 2 links because I love this kind of thing :)

I gifted mine to my daughter-in-law for Christmas. :) She loved it. I'm happy to learn how to do this kind of stuff correctly though.

So, I have been using and enjoying everything in my box. After seeing the spoilers, I wasn't super jazzed about the box but tried to keep my doubt at bay until I got the box in my hands. I, like @@Miccarty2, have fine hair so things like hair pins and hair product like hair oil are not always the best for me. But I gave everything a go...

 

I like the Honest products. I've been using the crayon and the face wipes (which I had just run out of, tyvm). I like the smell of these products and I'm glad I got to try this brand out. I've worn the ring a couple times already and have gotten compliments. I'm sure I'll use the foot pads at some point.

 

What was totally unexpected for me was the hair oil. I love it. The oil is really light! I would consider purchasing this. I'm still on the fence about the hair masque. I think I have to use it sparingly. The first time I used it, I was a little too heavy handed and my hair did not look so great. I could not go a day without washing it.

 

I wanted to love that hair pin. It's so cute. One of my besties also got the box and was wearing it in a messy bun. I just can't pull it off and my hair is too fine to wear it the other ways I've seen. Soooo...... I snipped the bobby pin down and put that bad boy on a long chain and have worn it as a pendant. I still get to enjoy it, just in a different way :)

 

All in all, I am happy with this box and am glad I gave everything a chance. So far, I am loving the RZ box sub!

That is so cool that you made a necklace out of the pin @@jbird1175! Thanks for posting! Looks awesome! I've been using the Honest wipes as well and don't mind them. First I had to get used to the herbal smell but they do their job so it's good. The lip crayon is not my color but have worn it a few times and it seems to work well.

I just have to tell SOMEONE about this!! I just won a $1500 Sam Edelman shopping spree from The Zoe Report!! They had a bunch of giveaways in December and I entered them all. 

 

This is the first time I've ever won anything even remotely like this! DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY PAIRS OF SHOES $1500 BUYS!?

 

Anyway, just one more reason for me to love Box of Style. If I wasn't subbed I never would have gotten the initial "hey, we're having giveaways" email.

THAT IS AMAZING!!!!! I entered all of those too, and I always tend to assume no one actually wins and I am spamming myself for no reason.  Good to know that these things really do work!  YAY SAFFYRA!!!

Thanks, everyone!

 

@@lauradiniwilk I'm totally with you! It's always a toss up... Is entering this giveaway worth getting spam emails?

I just figured what the heck and entered them all. Normally I don't bother because I figure my chances of winning anything are so slim that dealing with the spam isn't worth it. 

 

I may have to rethink that...

 

:D

My favorite boots of all time are the Penny boots they are lovely riding boots and come in a few different colors.  I also have a pair of heeled little sam edelman booties that have a cute fringe on the side they are super cute and fun to wear too (sorry can't remember the name). Good luck choosing let us know what you pick (need to live vicariously thru you lol)  Congrats again thats so fun!

    • It's Sunday. I don't feel said about anything, except for worrying about by elderly father catching coronavirus, because I could not stand to see him suffer, and feeling sad when I hear about the people who passed away. I feel lucky I still have my job, and they even gave my full hours back. Hours have been cut pretty much since December. My Dad asked me to find out when senior shopping time is, and my heart went out to him. Then he came back from shopping and he was happy, because he found cleaning wipes and groceries. He got me M&Ms. Maybe I get my love of shopping from my folks, lol. All I can think of is that stimulus check we're going to get, how if my job keeps on, I can use that to pay a credit card off, oh, that would be so amazing! And trying to use up my 2017 samples. My little hopes and dreams are surviving. Last night I went to visit my friend who lives alone. She said, I'm so depressed because I'm alone in the house. I said, that's what you need to stay alive right now. It is an advantage. But she did not see how that was a good thing.  Also I was watching a Sophie Shohet video on YouTube and in the comments someone had a good tip: keep nails really short, as long nails can get germs under them that may not come off when you wash hands.
    • hello so I have the temptu sb makeup and I'm thinking because I got some of my makeup used that it's a little old which makes it really thick. Just making sure I can use the mixing medium and it will do the trick? If not where do I buy the stuff to thin? also I have the compressor and I'm wondering how u set it there is a knob but nothing is labeled at all
    • @Edith Awesome job! Samples rock.  Love to try them myself.... 
    • This weekend I will stay home and entertain myself using old beauty samples: Shamanuti Pumpkin Enzyme mask - this is one of my older samples. I got it in the October 2017 Petit Vour box. It smells great. I will give myself a facial.  Kani Moon Milk - this is also from the October 2017 Petit Vour box. It is heaven. It's a beach vacation in a bottle. It is a jasmine tuberose body oil with shimmer and can also be used on the hair ends and as a highlighter. I really love it. Petit Vour sent me generous and costly samples.  Nails - maybe I will use a nail polish. I'm not good at doing nails, but I do have a few nail polishes and I need to use them up. 
    • I want to mention a great YouTube channel that was really inspiring to me recently. It is Study with me - law. In case you have not seen the study with me genre of YouTube videos, these are people who live stream long study sessions so others can follow them in real time and stay focused on work. This is the channel of a young Italian attorney who is working for a judge and also studying for the judge exam. During the crisis in her country, she is working and studying at home all day every day. She will usually work on her job in the mornings and study in the afternoons, with a break every 90 minutes or so, and longer meal breaks. Her schedule is not too easy and yet not too difficult, and her videos really helped me to keep motivated when I had my second job working at home. Sadly that job was cut short by the current crisis. I wish I could live like this young woman - with her studious life and huge, beautiful law books.
