Double Hooray for Today I got my BirchBox in the mail this morning and Boy am I super excited!!! Basically all BirchBox is you order a B.B. for 10$ a month you can get month by month which you can cancel anytime, a yearly subscription for $110, or 3-6-9 month increments also for 10$ a month but you get 4-5 highend deluxe beauty samples to try and if you like them you can order fullsize through their website  I will include a link at the bottom if your interested 

ONTO MY BIRCH BOX PICS!!!! (Im So Excited)
It came in a pretty pink Box!!!
How Pretty I want my Water Marbling to turn out like this!!!!
It comes with a card basicall describing this months theme and on the other side what the fullsize products sell for
So this card says, Hi There
Oh, do we have a special treat for in store for you. We've enlisted one of our favorite designer, Cynthia Rowley, to guest curate this month's box.

We're longtime fans- we love how she blends the practical and the ornate without missing a single stiletto-ed step. Her collections include classic pieces that will last decades as well as flirtatious silhouettes in the most fantastical prints. Plus, she's a collaboration genius- she's put her mark on everything from wetsuits to Band-Aids. Now she's sharing some of her all-time favorite products with you, including a backstage secret that gives hair mega shine and a cult favorite cleanser that keeps skin clear and youthful.

Head online for an exclusive interview with Cynthia herself. plus tips on pairing prints and makeup 
(hint: no matching!) and a video on getting gorgeous summer hair.
Happy Summer!
xoxo, Katia Hayley and the Birchbox Team

REDKEN Shine Brilliance Hair Glistening Mist
A must for all Cynthia's runway shows, this weightless spray gives hair a brilliant sheen.
For a full size is 4.4 oz which sells for $17 so this 2.1 Deluxe Travel would sell for about $8.50
KORRES Japanese Rose Shower Gel
A deliciously foamy body wash with aloe to keep skin soft long after you've toweled off and an exotically lush fragrance. 
The Full Size $13.53 oz sells for $19.50 so this 1.60 oz is just under $2
My Extra KIND Almond and Apricot Bar
Snack right with this wholesome bar- no preservatives or hard-to-pronounce ingredients
Cynthia Rowley says " They are my favs! I always have one in my bag just in case."
Another little wrapped package inside my B.B. and the little note card says,
"I'm super low maintenance but I do have my favorites . These are products that I feel enhance beauty without masking it or changing it too much- its always better to be low-key and to rely on your natural good looks"
- Cynthia Rowley

whats inside the little wrapping paper
Philosophy Purity made simple one-step facial cleanser 
This perennial award winner is pH-balanced to gently clear away dirt, oil, and makeup without drying out skin
16 oz is $32 8 oz is $20 so this little travel size is 1 oz. about $2.50
Pur Minerals 4 in 1 Pressed Mineral Makeup
Shea butter and vitamin E give this mineral powder an extra velvety finish that looks fresh, not foundation-y
Full size is .28 oz for $26 this one is .15 oz so lets say like $14 for this Deluxe Sample
