That’s My Birch!

Hi friends:)

Gotta take a moment to rave about my newest obsessioooon *insert Oprah voice*. Its called Birch Box and I first heard of the company when my bff purchased a subscription for me for my birthday. So what is Birch Box, you ask? Well, its an online beauty company that allows you to try before you buy! Basically, for $10 a month, you can sign up to receive monthly samples of great beauty and lifestyle products. You can sign up for a three, six, or twelve month subscription. Then each month, Birch Box will ship you (standard mail) samples of some of the newest and truest products for you to take on a trial run. Birch Box carefully selects some of its most popular products to feature each month. So you don’t get to choose what products are sent to you, but that would ruin the element of surprise! But I’m always pleased with their featured selections. 

Each month, I feel like its my birthday all over again when I find that box of goodies in my mailbox. And I have since been fully converted to Erno Laszlo skin care and love Taylor Swift’s fragrance, Wonderstruck. And the sample of double-sided fashion tape has helped me to avoid a couple wardrobe malfunctions. Not to mention the samples come in travel sizes, so I feel fancy even when I’m traveling city to city for gigs. 

As you can see, I have nothing but great things to say about Birch Box:) And the best part is, once you have tried a sample of something you really like, you can purchase it on the company’s website. They even have a point system so that you can earn freebies and discounts on future purchases.

Aloe Can You Go!

Let it be known, I can go on and on about aloe vera. This plant is quite the miracle worker and if you haven’t yet bought into the hype, in the words of Tamar Braxton, “get your life.”

Aloe vera has a variety of uses. Don’t act like you haven’t ever burned your forehead with the curling iron. Aloe vera, to the rescue. Treat your cookie by slathering this stuff on after that Brazilian bikini wax;) Your skin will thank you!  You can also add it to your favorite leave-conditioners as it will prove to make your hair soft and smooth. I like to add it to a cup of water and gulp it down really fast (not a fan of the texture), as it also aids in digestion. As a singer, I also like the benefits it provides for my throat.

You can find it at your local health food store for less than $10. I found mine on sale at GNC, two for $10. The bottle should be refrigerated after opening in order to preserve it. But this is one inexpensive investment that will not break the bank and will boost your fab! Add it to your kitchen today:)
