Happy Monday, everybody!
Last week I was off the radar for a minute, so I have to apologize for that. Our California vacation turned out to be a little more hectic than I thought it would be, and I was just NOT prepared for work first thing when we got back. Due to some unforeseen issues, our return flight had us running through the airport like the fucking McAllisters, except instead of losing a kid, we lost a suitcase.
Thankfully, we made our flight on time (barely) and the San Diego International Airport was very helpful and expedient in finding and sending our stuff back to us. Zoe should have the rest of her wardrobe back by Thursday, which will be a relief after surviving on like 2 pairs of pants and 3 shirts for a week.
I was hoping to receive my June Birchbox before we left so I could test it while we were on vacay, since there are so many great summer items in it, but that didn’t happen, unfortunately. That’s another reason why I’m getting this post up so late.
FYI: When a retailer says they’re going to ship something by a certain date, what they actually mean is that they’re going to create the shipping label by said date. Birchbox said they would be sending my box by the 10th; they created the shipping information on the 7th, but my package didn’t actually get picked up by the carrier until the 12th 😉
Aside from the slightly delayed shipping, I really liked this box! I received a hair texturizing spray from Oribe, which was pretty exciting, as well as a glow serum, and a moisturizer from Philosophy. All products that I have been craving from other boxes, but haven’t received until now.
Alright. Let’s get started on the product reviews!
