Birch Box: The Perfect Gift for Yourself or a Friend

If you're not familiar with Birch Box, Christmas time is a great chance to get to know them. This subscription service delivers a sweet little box of the best beauty samples right to your door every month for a year! Try out those luxury brands that you always wondered about. I actually asked Santa for this little gem myself!
  I also sent a subscription to my sister. It's the perfect little gift for that someone who has everything. There's all kinds of bonuses that come along with this too. You get a video every month where you can hear testimonials about the products for the next box and you can even choose a special product for your next shipment! This is definitely one of my favorite gifts to give and receive. You still have time to order for Christmas! Order up a Birch Box for yourself and a friend. For the next few days, you'll receive a bonus box if you order 2 subscriptions! Birch Box, it's one of my favorite things! 

The Perfect Bronzer

With the cold weather and a bit of rain moving in here in Cali, I've been on the hunt for the perfect bronzer to warm up my pasty Winter complexion. Enter:Nars Laguna. This is the perfect shade of tan without any shimmer or glitter. This warm, sandy colored  blush is perfect to add that sun kissed glow  I've been missing. If you've loved Nars Orgasm for the rosy, flushed glow that it gives you, Laguna Bronzer is the perfect companion. This is a limited edition, so jump right on it!
