In my attempt to be more involved with girly stuff, I subscribed to Birchbox and today I received my first one. 🙂
My first reaction was it was smaller than I thought it would be but they are only sample sizes after all.
You take off the outer pink box to find this pretty cardboard box. I threw it away before I could decide to “do something with it one day” which turns out to be never and I just have a pile of them…
Everything comes wrapped in pink paper with these cards in it. The big one explains what everything is and the little one asks for feedback. 🙂
I like how it came packaged! It’s pretty and the tissue paper can be recycled or used to pack other gifts (I’ve done that before). Nothing leaked or anything, which I was happy with. It all looks packed with care.
The above swag is (from left to right) foot cream, mascara, a lash card sample, face scrub, and above that is frizz cream. I’ll review them as I use them. 🙂
I think it’ll be fun to slowly try out different things and see what I like.
But today wasn’t all fun and makeup. I was off in exchange for working this Saturday and I spent the morning knitting so I could spend the night writing. I also had a meeting with my accountant to see how Ma’s final business is coming. I’m still having to make calls and annoy people to make sure they give me Ma’s due. Ma did warn me that her union would try to be shady with her pension money so I’m keeping on them to get what we’re owed.
I think it’s times like that which make me upset. Like going to the gyno yesterday and seeing she was my emergency contact or having to explain over and over to Mr or Mrs McCorperate Person that Ma is dead and to give me my fucking money. I feel like a vulture! But Ma wanted me to have that money so I’m gonna make her proud by annoying the ever-loving crap outta them to get it. >D
In other news, I lowered my WiiFit age from 32 to 24. And lost two pounds. 🙂
I believe that’s all the excitement for the day. I will spend the rest of the night trying to finish this short story. This one is just for the lulz, not for an anthology or anything. After that, it’ll be all anthologies and vampires for the rest of the year! 😀

Your blog title caught my eye when I saw it on the NaBloPoMo blogroll for November. I popped over and looked around a bit. Then I read this simple sentence: “I spent the morning knitting so I could spend the night writing.” So, of course, I’m subscribing 🙂 Good luck with the 30 day challenge.
Thank you! 😀 Good luck to you as well!
