september birchbox review

it’s the best time of the month again…
birchbox time!
a little behind? what’s birchbox?
for just $10 a month, this fabulous company sends you 4-5 high end beauty samples.

pretty cool, no?

::september petbox::

we all know that i’m head over heels in love with birchbox, a monthly beauty subscription box.
when i heard about petbox, a monthly subsciption box for pets i immediatly checked it out.
i’ve heard of barkbox, another subscription box for pets, but always felt it was too expensive.

petbox is great because the plans start as low as $10!
it’s called the snack plan and that’s the one i decided to try.
