GAAAAA! I made a thing you guys! On Tuesday I received the Erin Condren Summer Seasonal Surprise Box and I was so excited that I recorded my unboxing of it! I’ve been wanting to start a YouTube channel for planning, journaling, gaming, etc. for a while now, but I’m really nervous about it. I made myself a promise earlier this year, to push myself outside of my comfort zone. So I did it. I stopped over thinking, and I had fun, and made a thing! I’m really proud of my first go, and hope to improve and get more comfortable as make more videos.
Birchbox is a beauty subscription box, very similar to Boxycharm, but with a price difference of Birchbox only costing $10 per month. This is often a more affordable option for a lot of people. I started getting Birchbox last January (I’ve been subscribed for a WHOLE Year! Wow! That went fast!) and in that time I have found that I like the perks of getting this box than actually receiving the physical box.
Perks? What perks? Well when you join Birchbox you started
acquiring points based on how much you spend. For every dollar spent you get a point, and at 100 points you get $10 to spend in the store. So basically you get 10% back. You can also save those points up and use them on one really nice something that maybe you wouldn’t get otherwise. I do this a lot. If there is something in the shop that I want to try but don’t think I would like it completely, I’ll use my points so I feel like I haven’t spent anything at all. You can also earn points by reviewing products you receive in your monthly box.
Another really cool perk to the Birchbox Subscription is they will have add ons, such as planners, card sets, jewelry, home accessories, etc. that you can add on to your box for that month, usually those products are at a discounted price.
For those who love Birchbox and earn 500+ points in one calendar year, they become an Ace. Aces get free shipping, concierge service, exclusive shop offers, anniversary gifts, and surprises. I really like their program I think it’s really great, compared to others that are out there.
On to the box!
