Birchbox full of goodies…or three!

Yay!  This was my first month to receive Birchbox and was super excited about it.  To make it even more special, I bought two Birchbox limited editions as well. 🙂  So…all three arrived on the same day and you know I was incredibly excited to open them all and see what I thought!  I was immediately loving Birchbox because they knew the proper way to address me –


And then, with three boxes, I received a ton of awesome products!


Now, on to discussing the three boxes and all the products. 🙂
