April Birchbox

My April Birchbox has arrived and I am in love with everything yet again. I have discovered so many fantastic products through this company and learned a lot about hair and beauty along the way. "This month, we're bringing things back down to earth with fresh products that take inspiration from the world around us."

Since the weather has been fluctuating up and down between rain and some serious heat, my hair has been acting up lately. My roots are getting oily and my ends are drying out. I am looking forward to trying this nourishing hair mask by Amika. It's rich in omega acids and Vitamin C, and helps repair split ends.

This is the second month in a row that I've received nail polish in my Birchbox and I couldn't be happier. Spring collections in nail color have always been my favorite. I've been trying lots of new trends (the caviar manicure) lately and discovering new colors. This purple polish with a slight sheen by Zoya is something I would shy away from in the stores. I am glad I'll get to try something out of my comfort zone.

I know that every month Birchbox throws in an "extra" and this month it was a Lifestyle extra. Laundry detergent by Dropps to be exact. Not only are these little dropps convenient, but their single-use, eco-friendly detergent packs that will have clothes smelling extra clean. I'll be trying these out this weekend!

My favorite product that surprised me this month was a perfume. Not just any perfume but Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift. I am always hesitant when it comes to "celebrity" perfumes. There are so many on the market, and most of them smell horrible. I was shopping in ULTA around Christmas time and saw this huge display of Wonderstruck and there was only one bottle left. I tested it and was shocked at how good it smelled. My best friend Heather had been talking to me about it for a while telling me she loved it, so I bought it for her as a Christmas gift. I was so happy to get a sample, which I will be wearing all week. There's a good chance I'll even be purchasing the full size of this on the Birchbox website

With this beautiful Spring weather and the pretty neon green tissue paper my box was wrapped in, I decided to photograph my Birchbox on the grass. A bright and better way to show these wholesome picks!
