November 2014 Birchbox Review

The Birchbox theme for November was “Giving”, which does make sense given that Thanksgiving is the major November holiday (although I’m definitely surprised that they haven’t used this theme already in the past). One of the things I was really excited about this month was the partnership with (RED). Birchbox donated $1 for every photo of the box shared on Instagram. However, the theme wasn’t apparent in any other aspect of the box.

#LOTD: Fresh-Faced Weekend

Welcome to the first #LOTD, or Look Of The Day post! I don’t imagine that I will be doing these too frequently, maybe just once a week, because the vast majority of the time I wear very similar makeup and I feel like that would be really repetitive!

Today’s look is very fresh-faced and natural. To me, it’s perfect for a lazy Sunday when all I want to do is go to a long brunch with a friend, do some grocery shopping, and then sit on the porch talking or reading in the sunshine (yes, that is what I did today).
