I have been getting Birchbox for some time now and I LOVE it. The only thing is that I prefer natural products. If you are like me then you may want to check out this alternative. Go to You can read all about it and sign up.

It is $16 per month, which is a bit more than Birchbox, but good natural products are always more expensive. One thing I really like is that they also have a bi-monthly option.

I haven’t tried this box yet, but I would love to hear from those that have. I heard about it and thought that I should share.

For those of you who haven’t heard of it already Birchbox is great!

Basically, for $10 per month Birchbox sends you a box each month full of sample-sized high end beauty products. I’m always excited when I get mine!

It’s great fun to try the various products out, and I have discovered some products that I really love. They will also send you an additional surprise type product. One time I got chocolate macaroons (which I didn’t care for), another time a cute nail file, and some great hair clips most recently.

The only con is that it is not as customizable as I’d like. When you sign up they do ask you what you like, what type of products you prefer, etc. But, you cannot opt out of a particular type of product. For example, I don’t like perfume and I never wear it. Also, they will send shades of lip gloss that I would never wear. When I get those, I just set them aside unopened. I pass these products on as gifts to friends who do like those colors, scents, etc.  One thing that is nice though about this system is that at times it pushes me beyond my comfort zone and I try things that I never would have pulled off the shelf. Sometimes this leads to a new love for a specific type of product.

Nine West – Shoes

I got this great pair of Nine West wedges from a friend of mine for my birthday.

They are really cute and pretty comfortable, the only problem I noticed in wearing them today is that the bottoms were a bit slippery, but other than that they were great and I got compliments all day long!

I don’t usually like the cork and black look, but for some reason, these shoes really pull it off. I love wedges because you get the height of heels without the strain and uncomfortable/painful feeling.

Nine West – Purse

First off, I love purses and bags. I have loved them since I was 5 years old. Shoes and bags are my weakness.

This weekend I went shopping and stumbled upon this great purse at Ross. I have been wanting to get a smaller purse like this for when I go out and don’t need all of the things I normally bring. The only problem is, I think a lot of purses in this style are unattractive or boring. I think that this Nine West bag nails it!

I think the two zippers may this bag look cute instead of boring. The bag is very functional too, it has the two obvious outer pockets (which are big enough for lip gloss, cell phone, etc) and there is an inner zipper pocket as well.

I am not going to bother giving this bag a rating system, or going over the pros and cons.
