Birchbox: November 2013

I’ve been a Birchbox subscriber for almost three years now. Actually, next month will make it exactly three years. Even though I’m not always completely thrilled with the contents of my box, for $10 a month it’s such a great way to try new products. I’m also completely in love with anything miniature sized.

November’s theme is “More Good” which is an entire month dedicated to bringing more good into your life. For the entire month of November Birchbox is dedicating a portion of the proceeds form the Birchbox Shop to No Kid Hungry, an organization that works to end childhood hunger.
