Polish Week

So, I don't know if I have mentioned this before, but I am part of a great group of women, Alpha Phi. Right now we are preparing for formal recruitment next week, aka polish week. We basically need to dress "snappy casual" all week and look our best. This helps us get use to waking up pretty early, and making ourselves look our absolute best, so we are in routine by the time recruitment week rolls around. Here was my outfit today! I finally remembered to take some pictures, and my little baby Dexter decided to slip in. Maybe next time Rita will make an appearance! And yes, my boyfriend and I named our cats Dexter and Rita after our love of the show Dexter. If you haven't seen it, you need to. NOW. End of story.

So, if you have not heard of BirchBox, you should have by now! BirchBox is a monthly subscription (similar to that of a magazine in a way) where you get a little box every month filled with beauty supply goodies. Well, not filled with, but it gives you like 5 samples. I know that sometimes you can read reviews on a product, think you love it, you buy the $45 product, you use it, and you hate it. $45 dollars down the drain right?! Not with this company! It allows you to try various products every month, they pick it for you (you don't get to chose so it's kinda like Christmas/Hannukah/Quanza!), and they ship it to wherever you want it delivered. It's only ten dollars a month and you have the convenience of samples being shipped to you! You can register for the year right away and it's $110 dollars ( so one month free) and you can order a year subscription as a gift for someone too! How sweet?!

I'm so excited! I can't wait for September and my first shipment to get here!
