Birchbox: December 2016

My December Birchbox arrived the other day, and the very pretty box is designed to look like a subtly shiny holiday gift:

Birchbox: November 2016

My November 2016 Birchbox arrived last Saturday—the same day that I received my latest Stitch Fix—so it almost felt like my birthday! I badly needed a pick-me-up after the election results, but it’s taken me a while to muster up the motivation to write about my new samples.

I absolutely love the November 2016 Birchbox design; I’m such a sucker for dainty floral and botanical patterns!

Birchbox: October 2016

My October 2016 Birchbox arrived a little earlier in the month than usual, so that was a nice surprise. I opened the shipping package to find this pretty, fall colors-inspired design inside:

Birchbox: September 2016

I was relieved that my September 2016 Birchbox arrived yesterday, because that gave me enough time to write this review of it before I leave for a two week vacation! September’s box design is comprised of cute, colorful confetti:

Birchbox: August 2016

My August 2016 Birchbox arrived a couple days ago but it’s taken me a little time to actually sit down and write about it. This month’s box design is not my favorite but it’s still pretty cute, with a sort of 80’s retro feel (so hot right now, what with Stranger Things and all!).

Birchbox: July 2016

My July Birchbox arrived last Friday afternoon, but it’s taken me a few days to get my shit together to sit down and write this post! While this month’s box design is cute, it’s not my favorite. The colors and vaguely rose petal-y shapes feel very “Valentine’s Day” to me:

Birchbox: June 2016

My June Birchbox arrived the day after my birthday, so in a way it was like an extra box of birthday goodies! Yippee! I’m in love with the June box design, though one of the corners of mine got a little squished in transit.  😦

Birchbox: May 2016

My May 2016 Birchbox arrived late last week and I was excited to crack into it and see what goodies they sent me. This month’s box design, while not my favorite, is still cute and very spring-y with a pastel modern art motif:

Birchbox: April 2016

I heard the mailman drop my April Birchbox at the front door yesterday afternoon and ran downstairs to get my hands on it. I made sure not to slice the top of my Birchbox while opening the shipping box with scissors like I did last month—I had seen Birchboxers posting photos in a Facebook group that I’m a member of, and I knew that I was going to be in love with this month’s design. Rifle Paper Co. simply outdid themselves with the design:

Birchbox: March 2016

I was already having a good day last Friday, so when my Birchbox showed up in the mail my day got even better! Unfortunately I gouged the top of my Birchbox as I was opening the shipping box a little too enthusiastically with scissors. FAIL.
