Lookey lookey... What do we have here?!

No lie... I squealed for a solid 30 seconds when I saw my first Birchbox in the mail. It was like Christmas had come again! After catching my breath and ripping open the package, I was able to dive in and see what all the Birchbox elves had sent me.

1. Ghirardelli chocolate - Toffee Crunch
This was a perfect treat for our road trip that we had to Savannah. Even Hunter, who's not a big chocolate/sweets person, said the snack was delish. You know the way to my heart Birchbox, darn you.

2. Sugarbomb Ultra Plush Lip Gloss by Benefit Cosmetics
Mmk, I'm usually OCD about my lip gloss. It's either too pinky, too dark, too goopy... I could go on. This stuff... was great! It was super close to the shade of my lip color, with a slight pink hue, and it felt great on my lips. Not to mention, it tasted yummy! {is that weird?!}

3. Harvey Prince sample perfume - "Hello"
I haven't had a chance to use this little spritzer yet but I can't wait to try it out!

4. Protect & Detangle by Beauty Protector
This little fella made its way into my travel case for our trip to Savannah and I actually love it! Not only did it help detangle my crazy hair-did, but it also kept many of my super fly-aways tamed while we ran around Savannah. The wind was whipping like crazy that day, so this did an awesome job holding down the fort.

Last, but certainly not least...

5. Nail polish - Ruby Wing 
Mmk. I wasn't to hot about this nail polish. It was very pretty and went on nicely. Here's the thing... The glitter particles would snag itself constantly on any form of fabric. I'm going to try putting a clear coat over the glitter polish to see if this will help better seal the deal. Otherwise, I'll be putting it on the back burner for a special, once-in-awhile, get-a-wild-hair-in-my-butt kind of day. Ya never know when those come around here.

All in all, I was very impressed with my first box and I cannot wait for the others to come!
