June Birchbox

I really can't explain to you how happy that little pink box makes me when I find it in my mail box. Every month I say I will wait to open it so I can get a picture of it for the blog, but when the next month comes, I can't stand it waiting and it is ripped open before I make it to the front door. (Seriously, I have no control.)

Inside the pink outer carton is this super cute little box. The Mister is annoyed that I keep saving these, but I just know come Christmas time, they will be useful. (Useful or recycled...)

So let's see what June had to offer me:
Comodynes- Self Tanning Intensive: Who needs the sun when you can get a safe, buildable, and natural-looking tan with these best selling European towelettes?
I have been wanting to try a self tanner, as I really am not down with skin cancer, but I am very much for tan skin. I also am really white, so we will see how these work. All self-tanners say natural looking, so I am hoping I don't end up looking like this or this:

Stila- one step bronze: Fake an island glow with this three in one bronzer, primer and serum. It also keeps your skin's oil production in check.
Thank you Birchbox for the FULL SIZED product! I have never worn a bronzer before, and to be honest I am a little nervous, but I have been wanting to try one for the longest time.
the Balm cosmetics- Staniac in Beauty Queen: We're crazy about this two in one lip and cheek stain, the sheer gel formula delivers a subtle, long wearing flush.
I'm trying this one out right now. I always feel silly wearing color on my lips, but I like the idea of this. I do wish the color wasn't as red. I kind of think it looks like I have chapped lips.
Wonderstruck- Taylor Swift: The pop country songstress' scent is as catchy as her lyrics. We think it's worthy of a standing gig on our vanity.
I don't hate it. BUT I like Clinique Hapy Heart better.
LUNA Bar- Luna Minis: Weather we're running errands or hopping on a plane, we always have emergency snacks on hand. These just sweet enough treat are our go-to's.
At work I have a little box in my drawer with little snacks in it. Luna bars (along with Cliff, and Lara bars) are usually a feature in there. I happen to love the Chocolate Peppermint stick flavor. Because school is out, I don't have my snack drawer. So I ate this right after I took the picture. 

Dear Birchbox, Thank you for not giving me a note card this month. Also, thank you for giving this white girl a way to look golden brown. Love, Casey

we have the same thought pattern on so many things - self-tanner, coloured lips, chocolate peppermint. I'm going to see if BirchBox is available in Canada. xo
