July Birchbox

So, it hasn't been my intention to go missing for a few days...but that's just how it turned out! 
Life is life sometimes. :)
. . .
Thank you for all of your kind comments on the last post about the diy laundry soap! I'm excited to try some other "recipes" for my next batch so i'll definitely keep you posted! 
. . .
Do you remember how i've mentioned here  that Tobi enjoys jumping up on my counter, drinking out of the faucet, and watching my "morning routine" front and center? Well yes, he does it ALL of the time...and i couldn't resist taking these pictures. 
PU-LEASE how pitiful does he look. haha.
Apparently i was wearing him out by how long it took me to get ready. 
. . .
I got my July Birchbox a few days ago and i was pleasantly surprised with everything that i got! 
You see...i've been thinking of canceling my subscription. WHY you may ask? Well...samples just don't always do it for me. I either wont use them, i forget about them, or i don't fancy them enough to really care; and yes i just used the word 'fancy'...i know you liked it. 
I've been looking into some other sites that are similar to birchbox, but i haven't made a decision yet, i'll let you know once i figure out what i'm going to be doing. 
Until then...

The Goods
Larabar | I haven't tried mine yet, but my friend Lauren said it was uh-mazing. :) So i'll be packing this little baby in my car for when i'm about to eat my fingers from hunger. 
Earbuds | What what, a girl can never have enough of these, especially if your cat thinks it is a toy and proceeds to chew through the wires. Anyone else have that issue? 
Harvey Prince Eau Flirt-Lavendar Pumpkin | Cheese & Crackers this stuff smells amazing. 
Manna Kadar Sheer Glo Lotion | I'm a lotion FIEN. I have to be, my skin goes from oily to dry in .25 seconds so i'm always searching for a product that can help'a'sista'out. The description for this says it will give you that "healthy glow"...we shall see, my skin is already glowy from too much oil. I'm telling you, i could run cars or something. 
Color Club Nail Polish | I love nail polish as well, but only for my toes. I can't seem to keep it on my finger nails...hmmm.
Gloss Moderne Hair Gloss | I'm also a hair product junkie (didn't know i had addictions did you?! ). The claim is that this product will help reduce frizz. I'll be the judge of that, since my hair is curly-q and poofs out like a poodle during a humid NORMAL day here. 
Suki Balancing Regimen | Out of all of the products so far, i'm most excited to try this one! I'm always looking for something (as mentioned with my oily AND dry skin) to help with my face washing routine. Maybe this will be what i've been looking for?! 
. . .
You can view some of my past birchboxes here: ooo yes, we're going backwards ladies. 
. . .
Did you get your birchbox? 
Link'up so i can see what you got as well!

I see birchboxes all the time online now....I think they sound so fun! But, I am with you on your issue with the contents.

I would rather give myself a bit of cash each month (however much birchbox or w/e other surprise box charged) and buy myself random things. After a while it might be hard to find new things, but with the internet surely we could discover some?

Marr I need new headphones. Those ones actually look like they'd be good. Mine fall out all the time because I'm a sweaty beast when I run, so I need some like grippy ones or something...

UGH I need new headphones, too! I see Bircchbox stuff everywhere and I've been thinking of signing up but I can't pull the trigger just yet. You'll have to keep me updated on your decision.
