I have loved every ounce (especially when they are ounces of anti-aging serums) of my experience of being a Birchbox #Birchblogger. I adore opening my boxes each month and reading and reviewing books before they are officially released as part of the #BirchboxBookClub.
This experience falls under the “wellness” portion of this site, as I believe that doing things to take care of yourself (whether it is getting the right sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful rays, discovering a makeup product that gives you confidence or finally finding the leave-in-conditioner to tame your frizzy hair) is so important to all of us.
I think that there is an inverse relationship, unfortunately, between this sentiment and motherhood; we, as mothers, need to try to focus more on taking care of ourselves (for so many reasons), yet we do so so much less than the rest of the population (pardon this generalization–I realize that this is not always the case, but in my life, it is).
So, as you can see from my dance at the beginning of the video, I was quite excited to receive my June #birchbox and it’s spoils. And you can check out my video below on my super huge YouTube Channel.
I hope, at the very least, that watching Lola scamper in and seeing my eyes widen with disproportionate excitement over a mango scent will give you a smile.
Peace, Love and WASH YOUR DARN FACE,
