Birchbox November 2016 – Sneak Peek!

Hi My lovelies,

First off, I want to say sorry (again, I can’t help it, I’m English) for being less active lately. I’m still incredibly busy and have little to no time to blog, even though I have so many post ideas floating around my head! I work full time, and I have my final end of course project (it’s taken three years to get here, but hopefully I’m almost done) taking up what little time I normally use to write up my blog posts. That being said, it wouldn’t be the first of the month without my Birchbox preview post, would it?? I’m definitely going to try and be more present, and I’m going to attempt blogmas this year – 25 posts in the first 25 days of December – do you guys think I can do it?! Anyway, onto the box!

November’s box (November already, wow!) theme is Shake Your Tail Feather, and the box is adorably peacock designed! It’s curated this month by Tatler magazine, which if I’m honest is a little too middle class for me to read, but they have definitely put together an amazing line up for the boxes this month. Non subscribers, this may be your month to join, as I am super excited for my November box to arrive. I’m still debating on whether to cancel my boxes after Christmas, depending on finances and enjoyment factors (possibly in favour of Love Me Beauty), but I’m definitely looking forward for this one!!


For those of you who don’t know about Birchbox, it’s a beauty subscription service that sends around 5 beauty products (including makeup, skincare and haircare) to your door each month. Sometimes there is also a beauty bonus included, such as January’s #nofilter compact mirror! It costs £10 plus £2.95 postage, and in my opinion is well worth it so far as I’ve found products that I really love (Spectrum makeup brushes, anybody?)!

Birchbox also now ships to Ireland, so all you Irish lovelies can now get your hands on this little box of wonders too!

Birchbox UK January 2016! || Best.Year.Ever (Pinterest Collab)

I’m writing this after a full day of hard work studying (I’m training to be an accountant!), so my brain is a little bit frazzled! But I absolutely had to share this post with all of you guys!

My January Birchbox arrived yesterday, and I was sooooooo pleased to see it waiting for me when I got home from work. If you saw my last blog post, you’ve got a little sneak peek at what I got in this week’s box, but I’ll go into details now!
