With all the crazy weather on the East Coast one would think that there would be a delay on the November Birchboxes considering their headquarters are in New York. I would have been completely understanding, but like always, Birchbox is amazing, and I got my box in the mail on time! I am really happy with this box. :) If you aren't sure what Birchbox is, check out my blog post here which explains everything you'd want to know about it.
This month, the theme is "Give". Completely appropriate around Thanksgiving and the holidays if you ask me. They are teaming up with a charity called The Heart of Elysium which works with actors, artists, designers, and musicians to dedicate their time and talent to children going through different medical conditions. It didn't say on this month's card, but I am assuming some of the profits from buying full sized products would go towards this non-profit organization, but I'm not for sure. I love that Birchbox has teamed up with different organizations and that we are able to support them through Birchbox. Additionally, Birchbox included a little 'giving' box for us to fill with something special for someone and then for them to pass it along doing the same. Clever!
Here's some pictures and information on what I got:
I am rather excited about this 'lifestyle extra'. It is a little bite sized Chuao Chocolatier Chocopod bar. This is in the flavor of Firecracker which is sea salt and chipotle in dark chocolate with popping candy. Talk about an explosion! This is also free of hydrogenated fats, artificial preservatives, colors, flavors, and sweeteners. It is 100% natural and only 50 calories! If this is as good as it sounds, I might have to get some more of these!
Birchbox also included a coupon card for Chromatic Gallerie which is a shoe company. Even with the coupon, the shoes are still expensive. I don't like to spend a lot of money on shoes, so I don't think I'll be using this unfortunately.
Overall, great box! If you are interested in signing up for Birchbox, it is only $10 a month and it is WELL worth it! Here's a link if you want to join: https://www.birchbox.com?raf=gafkf
