September Birch Box

I need to get better at posting these the month I receive them!  Here is my September Birch Box:

My box contained:

– Kate Spade New York Twirl sampler

– Twistband hair tie

– Tili small bag

– WEI to Go Sleep Over Kit: Clean and Ideal Skin

– 21 drops Aromatherapy Blends in Focus

– Birchbox and Color Club Custom Collection Nailpolish in Status Update

I think my favorite part of the box was the Twistband hair tie.  I had heard about them before, but wasn’t about to spend $18 for 12, so it was nice to have one to try.  I love them!  But I still didn’t want to spend $18, so a quick pinterest search brought me to Lil Blue Boo who had a tutorial on making them!  For $6, I got 10 yards of brown fold over elastic (FOE), and made a bunch of work-appropriate colored Twistband knock-offs.  Now I think I know what I will be giving out for Christmas!

The perfume sample was ok.  Honestly, I’m tired of perfume samples – I have way too many perfumes already, and my new motto is that I can’t buy a new one until I use up one!  The Tili bag was pretty, but I found it useless because I carry my makeup around in make up bags.  I’m still on the fence about the 21 drops Aromatherapy Blend.  It smells nice, but it doesn’t last very long.  I do think it will be good for when I’m studying for the Florida Bar, because I will definitely be needing help focusing on studying for 2 1/2 months straight!

The nail polish is ok.  I’m not ready to give up my bright summer nail polish (and since I live in Florida, I don’t have to ever really give it up), but I’ll try it soon.  It’s just very dark.  I have not tried the WEI to Go Sleep Over Kit, mostly because I have an awesome Origins Checks and Balances face wash that I love.  However, I will probably bring it up to Chicago next time I visit.

I’m hoping next month is a better box.  If you want to join Birchbox, click here!
