busy bee

{ What I wore: (old) Banana Republic dress (love this comfy day dress option) // J.Crew belt (similar) // Converse sneakers // ModCloth headband }
 Saturday was a laid-back, makeup-free, busy checking things off my to-do list kind of day. I was so happy to get my June Birchbox Saturday morning... just in time to slip on this retro headband from ModCloth before helping my new roommate move in. After moving, a photography class and unpacking a few boxes, I went back to my new Birchbox goodies and put on some Jouer tinted moisturizer, a spritz of Juicy Couture perfume and Stainiac lip stain before heading over to a friend's house for game night.


I can't wait to try out the other two new products I got this month - self-tanning towelettes, and matte finish face SPF.
Have you signed-up for Birchbox yet? What goodies did you get this month?

  1. You look so cute in your casual dress! I love how you dressed it down with the Converse and the headband! I haven't tried out any of the subscription services. I usually just read reviews when trying out a new product.

  3. be careful of the tanning towelettes! I used mine, and missed some spots...and it looks a little ridiculous (thankfully it can be covered by skirts/dresses, haha)! I thought I was really careful, too.... Also, I am jealous of that headband!

  9. I got the Jouer tinted moisturizer a few months ago in my BB and I love it. I have racked up some points and I'm ordering a full size tube of that this month. Anxious to hear how the self tanning towelettes work out.

  21. Thank you Sharon!
    I guess I am just a try-it-and-see sort of person, and at $10 a month, I don't have my expectations too high, so far it has been much better than I expected.
