Hi! How are you? What are you up to?
Being its March and I am still going through some box withdrawals (no great Holiday year codes = no year of Glossybox, Birchbox, BoxyCharm), I am making an extra effort to sort out my subscription box loot. So part of this is to have a pile of pretty empty boxes and put them up in a bookshelf looking all pretty like I have an organizational thing going on but it’s really a hoarding empty boxes thing going on. I have plans to Modge Podge the Glossys and solid colored sub boxes (e.g., Targeys boxes are excellent for gifting) for any future gifts. Not sure about the Birchboxes, I do have some labeled with contents but I have too many Birchboxes. Maybe I will try to make one of those drawer systems I see on YouTube.
If shipping issues and variations did not drive me batty, I would have picked up a year of Oui Please in a second with that 40% holiday code. Those boxes themselves are perfection. Grrrr….
I still am subscribed to Sephora Play! with no code but I am scared to unsub and then not being able to sub because I previously unsubbed. There is something about Sephora Play! that I love and its usually that 1 or 2 items that make the box for me. However, I get really pissed off to receive Sephora branded items and the perfume sample we know is always a freebie to Sephora to whore (which is why Sephora must call it a “bonus” item). So I guess it’s a love/hate relationship.
At least Sephora is trying to mix it up with different style bags.
I dropped Zoe’s Box of Style as I did not think it was worth it to be an annual subscriber and I rather wait for full spoilers and a good code if I want the box. I just snapped up PopSugar LE Resort a spoiler was just posted and I am in love!!! I am stalking Nina at Quarterly/Randomly who has two spoilers out but am waiting til the summer for her to ship out so I can see all spoilers before I decide to snap up a box.
Just kidding not kidding Nina was supposed to deliver late last year and we are still waiting barely breathing from frustration.
I digress, today’s candle is…
Candlefish Candle Tin in No. 62 – I received this candle tin via Birchbox’s Limited Edition: Good as Gold Box using a code. This candle is a yummy floral scent mix of Lilac, Rose, and Blackcurrant. I find that the Lilac scent is the most dominating and it reminds me of the Lilic bushes of my weehold when I would walk to and from school with my brother.
Not sure why I am calling a floral candle as yummy but it just smells yummy. Just not yummy to eat of course 😉
