The Adventures of Stinky Sweet:

Sometimes stinky. Sometimes sweet. But it's our life - and it is always good.

June Birchbox!!

I arrived home yesterday from my overnight jaunt to Atlanta ( and a super fun firefly float canoe trip with the ladies of my family) to the fabulous annoucement that this little pink box came in the mail.
Oh happy day!
This month's theme was all about the "Jet Set" which was nice because I am headed to jet set to Chicago next week for  work!

This is what the box looked like when I first opened it...I knew I was in for a treat as soon as I saw the first few items!

 The first thing I pulled out was a little teaser for the new Birchbox Man box. Since Chad laughed in my face when I suggested it to him, we won't be ordering that anytime soon. Still, this John Varvatos cologne - called Star USA - smelled really good. In fact, I might even use it though it was a little strong for my lady skin...

 Next came the Eyeko Fat Eye is in a great coppery, smokey shade that I think I will really use. I really like the texture and this is another full size product score! Regular price for this one is $15 so this was pretty awesome to get!

I was pretty excited to open the bag and see this quart size, funky print zip-top bag. It will be perfect for my carry-on bottles next week and I will be the most stylish gal going through security! This is by the brand tili (lower case correct) and it looks like they make lots of fun colors. I saw this on the teaser video from Birchbox and I hoped I would get one!!
 Again, Birchbox packaging rocks...seriously like opening a birthday present every month. There were more goodies inside this little wrapped package...details count - and this is a great one!

 This is Stainiac in the color "Beauty Queen" by the company theBalm. It is a dual lip and cheek stain that I have already worn (last night!) and it really is a perfect color. Looks really red in the package but smears on to be a perfect flush. Makes lips look natural and awesome...I just covered with lip balm last night for a lasting color. Love it already!

 I am pertty excited about taking this with me to Chicago too...daily moisturizer by Likewise with SPF 50 in it! A great way to protect your skin from harmful UV rays...great under makeup.

And finally, I am pretty stinking excited about these and crossing my fingers for no streaks...these are self-tanning towelettes by Comodynes. I might give these a little go on the legs for next week since I am packing mostly easy-to-wear dresses for my 3 day conference...
So, there's the June Birchbox haul. I think it was a really great box this month - of course, anytime I get a full size product I am going to be a happy girl, but I watched the teaser video and I got a couple of items that I was really hoping I could try!

P.S. not that you are interested, but my fingernail polish is the Zoya polish that I also ordered in the limited edition set by Birchbox. The color is Kate by The Small Things Blog. which is the blog that I read that introduced me to Birchbox! It really is a perfect summery color...pinkish, watermelony color that wears for a long time!
