January Birch Box and Giveaway!

Everyone knows I love to try new things!  This year, I subscribed to Birchbox and I received my first shipment for January.  The theme for this month is "Clarity."

What was in the wrapped package pictured on the lower left corner?  A lovely fragrance sample of Juicy Couture....

 This month's contents as described by the Birchbox Team:

  • Algenist Firming & Lifting Cream: Turn back the clock with this sophisticated moisturizer, which uses a unique micro-algae compound to boost skin's elasticity.
  • FIX Malibu Immaculate Complexion Smoothing Serum: This clever serum is on our skincare honor roll.  Antioxidant-rich vitamins A, C, and E brighten skin tone and soften wrinkles.
  • Juicy Couture: Juicy's signature fragrance is a blend of sweet floral notes.  Sophisticated and feminine, it's perfect for day or night.
  • Zoya Nail Polish in Kendal: A sweet cream periwinkle, this on-trend neutral from Zoya's Feel Collection will take you from winter to spring.
  • Extra: 'wichcraft Granola: This toasty granola, from Top Chef judge Tom Colicchio's NY-based 'wichcraft chain, takes care of snack cravings without any guilt.
The BB Team also included a handy magnet and a Mini Detoxes card with tips to keep me focused on clarity.

Write back with your thoughts on these items or tips for clarity and I will enter you in a drawing to win a full-sized Zoya Nail Polish in Carey, a pretty light gray shade.  Please respond by Friday, January 27th at midnight Eastern Time to be entered in the drawing.

Good luck!!!



  1. Clarity to me is getting my thoughts organized and being focused and not letting emotions cloud my judgment.

  2. I started with birchbox last month but didn't get one of the zoya nail polishes in my box. My favorite item was the stila eyeliner, it glides on so smoothly!

    1. I was wondering if the contest ended early? If not, here is my entry.

      I would take a nice long bubble bath with relaxing music, then treat myself to a little homemade spa, journal on my prettiest stationary/notebook, and to finish it off, I would take a nice walk around the neighborhood with my dogs :)

    Clarity I don't have much of that in my muddled brain.
    However excited about the lifting and firming cream! I need lifting and firming. Interested on your thoughts on how it is.
    Love the Zoya nail polishes that can take you from winter to spring! Helps my OCD when I can reuse a colour in a different season. (Hehehehe you can tell I'm Canadian by my spelling eh?)
