January Birchbox

I received my January Birchbox several days ago, but I'm just now getting around to posting about it! I always love getting this little package in the mail. I'm a product junkie, so anything from hair & skin to nail & fragrance products is exciting to me.
This box was particularly special because I received some blue (light, bright navy) eyeliner that just might be my new favorite. 

"Is there a video tutorial in the works, Kate?" 
Well yes. Yes there is. Stay tuned.

There were some other lovely items in the box too! Here we go:

This is the eyeliner I was talking about. It's called Peacock. It goes on like a dream and doesn't budge, It's "smudgeable" and smooth. I really like it. 
I'm always up for trying new cleansers! My favorite is still Philosophy's Purity. But one of the other great things about my monthly Birchbox is the products that I receive that I may not use go directly into a basket in my guest bathroom for my guests to try! 
Some granola. . .
Extra lotion is perfect to have on hand this time of year.

And finally some Juicy Couture fragrance. Perfect to pop in your purse or a travel bag. 


The last little item in there was a Birchbox magnet!

  2. Kate, I've been following your blog for a little over a month now. I LOVE it! Thanks so much for the hair and makeup tutorials! It's been so much fun trying out new ways to do my makeup and style my hair. I've also enjoyed the pics of your family and pets. Really loving your blog! :)

    On another note.. I signed up for Birchbox through one of your links, then went out of my way to say that YOU told me about them. I sure hope you got credit! :) I can't wait to get my first box! (Should be coming next month) YAY!

  4. Kate ,
    As a 45 year old women, I LOVE your blog. I just found it this week and had to read it from start to finish. I was so pumped to start a Birchbox subscription, but when I went to their site it says they are sold out. Do you know if they will be offering Bichboxes again soon? Really sad as I am jealous I did not know amount this earlier. Keep up the blogging! Love it!

  5. This is the first time I've gotten the exact same items you got. It's funny because some of the other months, you got yours before me and I didn't want to spoil the surprise by reading your post even though it turned out my items were different! :)This month was defintely a good box!

  6. Oooh I wear Viva la Juicy every day! I love it.

  7. I love how the couple of other Birch Boxes I've seen besides my own are all different in some way! I wish I had gotten the Peacock eyeliner because the color looked so pretty online!! Instead I ended up with this gunmetal gray color... I guess it gives me a reason to experiment more with make up!!

  8. I gave both of my sisters-in-law 3-month BirchBox subscriptions as part of their Christmas gifts. They unwrapped their December boxes on Christmas and then received their January boxes a few days ago. They both love them and can't wait to get their February box.

    I need to try to hint to my hubby that a BirchBox subscription would be a nice Valentine's gift for me!

  9. I just signed up for BirchBox recently and am already obsessed! I bought gift subscriptions for my sisters too!

  11. I finally decided to try Birchbox and they are sold out....I knew I waited too long!

  12. I really love the eyeliner, and will probably buy some in other colors. Birchbox was a great gift for myself, my sister, and my good friend. Love it!

    Thanks for posting about it because I like seeing the other things that come in the box. I didn't get all of the same things. I received a really nice moisture cream that is used before my moisturizer and I really like it...

    Thanks!

  14. I bought that Juicy Couture perfume a few weeks ago, and I am OBSESSED. It smells so good. I smell myself all the time. It's only slightly weird.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I got the Sparkly Green Eyeliner and I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!! The Viva La Juicy smells amazing as well!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I got ALL different items then you got!! I'm doing a post of my Birchbox tomorrow and I have to say I LOVE it!! :)

  19. Loved my Birchbox this month!!!! I got all the same stuff except instead of the lotion I got triple milled pomegranate bar soap, and my Stilla eye liner was a dark color I could not tell if it was purple or charcoal but I rocked it non the less!!! Thanks for the post I love comparing what we got!

    ReplyDelete
  20. My birchbox is never the same as anyone elses. I got a bunch of anti aging stuff. Have you heard of GoGo Girlfriend or GlamBag? Those are the same type of things as Birchbox.

    ReplyDelete
  21. So glad I signed up for my Birchbox when I did, I love it! And I love your blog, I can't wait to check it daily!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I really want to sign up for birchbox but am on the waiting list. Hopefully it won't be long, looks like you got some great stuff this month!

    ReplyDelete
  23. So crazy that I get this box too but nothing in my box in the same. I love getting these every month.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thanks to you, I signed up and I was so excited to get my box! I got the eyeliner in purple and how did they know my current purple liner was about dead. PS, does it make me ahead of the trend? :)
    I got soap instead of that cleanser stuff but I think I'd trade if I could!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have a blog post later in the week about my Birchbox and we got totally different things- except for the fragrance.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I got the same box & I love the peacock eyeliner by Stila! Goes on very smooth & stays. I'm excited about trying the facial wash.

    ReplyDelete
  27. What do you use as a moisturizer after Purity?

    ReplyDelete
  28. I can't wait to join Birchbox. I'm using is as my reward for going to the gym 4 times a week!

  29. Birchbox is currently sold out...you can sign up for their waitlist

    ReplyDelete
  30. I've been debating signing up for a birchbox for a while now. This one looks like a good one - especially the eyeliner. Those larabars are so good!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I just got my first Birchbox this month....I ended up with totally different things than you but got some fun nail polish :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Boooo.....They are sold out of all subscriptions!

    ReplyDelete
  33. OMG you are going to love LARABARS, so good! And that's my fave flavor. They are all natural, have like 4 ingredients on average and most of them have no added sugar (the ones with chocolate chips do though) def yummy when a cookie craving comes on.

    I am dying to try that eyeliner!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I got the eyeliner in a copperish color. I to am in love with it. I want to buy one in every color!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Holy crap....Birchbox is sold out of subscriptions??!! So glad I signed up a couple of months ago!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I just realized they were all sold out of subscriptions. I am sad! I am on a waiting list--BOOOO

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm also waiting to subscribe to Birchbox! I love the Origins facewash, I use it everyday! Thanks for the post :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I got all different products in my Jan Birchbox, but I think it's because of what I checked off when I signed up (probably anti-aging). I made sure to give you credit when I signed up! :)

  40. I love Birchbox too. I can't wait to see what I get each month.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I joined Birchbox after seeing it on your blog and LOVE it!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I just started using that cleanser and I love love it! You should give it a try :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love your blog! We have very similar hairstyles and I love trying out each of your tutorials. My grade 9 students love when I show up with something new and I always get compliments (from adults too) when I switch things up! lol

    Yesterday, as I was watching your eye makeup tutorial (and besides thinking if we knew each other we would be fast friends, as we seem to love and use the same products) I was going to suggest that you try the Stila Smudgestick eyeliner, when lo and behold you got it in your Birchbox! I am SOOO sad that I can't get Birchbox here in Canada. Do you or your readers know of anything similar?

    Thanks again, and keep up the great work (as long as you enjoy it!) lol

  44. Larabars are the BEST. Hands down. My favorite flavor is Cherry Pie. I love that they are so healthy and all natural and filling too.

    ReplyDelete
  45. My box was totally different this month and not in a good way! Yours looks much better...wonder what I did wrong on my profile to get the short end of the stick...

    ReplyDelete
  46. Too funny, I thought this said, "Bitch Box" when I first read it. Must go check it out now. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  47. You have totally turned me onto this birchbox thing! I just went to purchase a subscription and they are sold out for the time being, but I'm on the waiting list! These products you're getting are expensive and for 10 dollars? I can't believe it!

    ReplyDelete
  48. oo exciting! mine hasnt come yet!!

    on another note...nothing to do with birchbox...BUT there's an organization i think you might like. im not sure if you have heard about it yet or not, but my friends and i LOVE it! its called 31Bits (www.31bits.com) that sells jewelry that is fair trade, made by women in Uganda with recycled materials, and the money goes to a profit for them as well as providing for their needs and the needs of their families and provides education on important things. its a GREAT organization and founded off of the proverbs 31 verse. and their jewelry is awesome!!! i have 2 pieces by them currently that i LOVE. i recently hosted a "house party" with them over the holidays and a lot of my friends got into it and now are 31bits lovers too! just thought you might like their jewelry :)

  49. I love hearing about new eyeliner. I have oily skin and I ALWAYS look like a raccoon by the end of the day! Thanks for letting the world know!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Thank you for getting me hooked on Birchbox! It's my newest obsession. Got my first box this month and can't wait to see what it'll bring next time!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I like your box SO MUCH more than mine. I think I need to go in and change my settings and take away "anti aging". Would have loved that Stila liner instead I got a nail polish. Totally different box. I also received two serums.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I have to change my settings, too. What settings do you use? I don't like what I have been getting - it seems like you are getting much better stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I finally remembered to go sign up and now they're sold out! Darn. Waitlist hurry up!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Im waitlisted too! I hope it isnt to long of a wait, Im dying to start getting monthly boxes!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I signed up the other day I paid for 1 month so far just to see if I will like it!! Like you I am a samples junkie I love when I get samples from Ulta, Sephora, or even Clinique. I get my first one in February I can't wait. I have heard of it before but was wish washy about trying. I am so glad I have found your blog and seen something that actually uses it and loves it. Thanks Kate I will let you know what I think :)

  56. I received the Stila eyeliner in mine this month too and I LOVE it. Got the same perfume by Juicy and it's a good scent but the Twirl by Kate Spade I got last month is heaven!

  59. I'm jealous of your Origins soap!!!! We live in the same area (I'm in a suburb of Raleigh) but my box is always different from yours. They must know I'm getting old, because I always get anti-wrinkle creams. Seriously, tell us how you like the Origins soap--I might have to pick some up.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I was so bummed when I got my Birchbox this month. The juicy perfume must have broke during shipping. When I opened it up there was broken glass everywhere :( On a plus the box itself smelled great! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  61. I just got my first birchbox this month & I am so bummed, especially after seeing yours! Instead of the facewash, there was a tiny bottle of shampoo and conditioner and no lotion. Instead of the eyeliner there was a little thing of mascara... would definitely have preferred the eyeliner since I'm kind of ocd about my mascara :)

  62. blogged about you today - and finally got my invite for a BirchBox subscription - yippeeee!!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Just a hint. Though the subscriptions were sold out, I found that I was still able to gift myself a subscription. They must not want to miss out on the chance to hook 2 people or something. Have a try and see if you too can skip the waiting list!
