My 3 Month Verdict

So I have been subscribed to both the Glossybox and Birchbox for the past 3 months and I will have to say I have loved receiving little package sent* to me every month. Of course I love beauty products and love trying new things and therefore I see it as a treat every time. Like explained in my youtube video, (will be linked below)I feel that the Birchbox concentrates on more medium to higher end product samples. Where as the Glossybox focuses on lower to mid range prices. I must say I loovvee the Glossybox packaging. I feel like they really take their time with it and their box is zoo sturdy and I have kept all the boxes.

What I didn't like about both companies is that when you sign up to the subscription service, the want you to fill out a questionnaire which will allow them to cater your box to you. However it didn't seem like any of the companies listened. which really frustrated me. Every month so far seems to be almost identical.

I really like how Birchbox introduces me to new brands every month. Well established and up and coming.

I still thing that the price point of both boxes are really good and therefore are worth the price. But... Are they worth the hype? Probably not but hay... each one to her own.

Comfort = Not Everyday Heals

As much as I love to keep my heals high, I love to be comfortable also. To be perfectly honest with you, I am in trainers 5 days a week due to the nature of my job. So generally on the weekends I love to get completely dolled up. Yes... This includes heals.

But, there is something sexy about a women who is still able to get dolled up without the need of heals. I strive for comfort too. And since I purchased my Nike Thea's (shown in my newest haul) I have been obsessed with comfort and trying to match all my outfits to fit with the trainers. 
I know.... a bit much right?!?

I can't help it.... They are beauts :)
