CLOSED : Reader Giveaway : Essie Nail Polish & Quick Dry


{I will contact you about sending you your new Essie Spring Polish and Good to Go!}

Thank you all for joining in on my giveaway! I plan to have many more in the future!

For all of you new and old followers, I am so very thankful! I am so humbled that this blog has grown the way it has. When I first started blogging, I was in college and it was a requirement for a class, so naturally–it wasn’t my most favorite thing. However, when I started this blog just a few short months ago, it has become sort’ve a passion for me. Something that can be my outlet to the world outside of my ‘little bubble’.
In the beginning I decided once I reached 5,000 views, I would have a giveaway. Yes, I know 5,000 is not a lot in blog land. But, hey–I’m new and I am ever so grateful for all 5,000! You must start somewhere, right?!
Since I love, love, LOVE nail polish I knew that would be the perfect giveaway.

BIRCHBOX : A New Found Love

Something that will literally change your life forever.

Yes, I said it. Forever.

Just in case you don’t know what a Birchbox is, I must let you in on the secret.

First off, who doesn’t love getting mail? Not the bills, just the fun stuff of course. Well, not only does this precious package come in the mail, but it comes wrapped in a PINK BOX. What better color, right? How could you not possibly be ECSTATIC when you go check your mail and you see a pink box awaiting your arrival.

Birchbox is a monthly subscription to deluxe-sized beauty samples. Each month you receive 4.5 random samples.

The cost is $10.00 a month. You read that right. ONLY $10.00 for GREAT samples! What a perfect way for a beauty product-adic like me, to save money. Now, I can actually try the product before I have to spend so much money and buy the whole thing to see if I even like it.

One of the best parts about the box is that they are designed just for YOU. When you sign up, you fill out a survey and according to your answers, Birchbox will send you samples based off of what best fits for you.

Another awesome thing about Birchbox is, you can accumulate reward points. For every 100 points you earn, you’ll receive a $10 credit to spend in the Birchbox store. A little breakdown for you :

  • Birchbox membership — 110 points for a yearly subscription, 10 for a monthly subscription
  • Earn 1 point for every $1 spent in the Birchbox shop
  • Earn 50 points for every friend you refer to Birchbox
  • Earn 10 points for each completed product feedback survey

I decided this would be a great Christmas gift for a few friends this year and it’s been so fun seeing what they got in their box compared to what I got in mine for the past two months.

The boxes usually arrive around the 10th of each month. Currently, I’m waiting the arrival of my February box, then of course I will show you all my goodies that I got!  (I got an email today that they are going to arrive late due to weather, so you’ll have to wait a bit to see what I got.)
