Birchbox November 2014 Unboxing

November 2014
BuzzFeed Life
Happy Holiday Hacks

My Birchbox is curated box by BuzzFeed Life. Its called Happy Holiday Hack Box. I could have picked this box or 1 of 4 choice items to go in my box this month. I had already got 1 of the choices in my October box so that left three choices. Of the remaining choices the one I was most interested in was the Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel for Sensitive Skin. 

I ended up picking this box since it had a few things I wanted to try. Birchbox has been really good the past few months about pre box selections. Last month my selection was not sent so I ended up with extra Birchbox points. Birchbox has excellent customer service. Well, on to this months box. 

Box insert card

Perk Up Dry Shampoo | Full-size $21
Dry shampoo gets used more and more in our house. 
So having an extra always comes in handy, also I really like the packaging. 

Dr. Jart+
Pore Minimalist Mask | Full-size $35
Face masks are my new found beauty and skin care love. 
I can't wait to try this one!

Dr. Lipp
Original Nipple Balm for Lips | Full-size $14.50
This was designed for nursing moms.
 This can be used for your lips & cuticles. 

Signature Candle in Silver Spruce | Full-size $17 
Just find your favorite candle votive and your ready to go. 
In fact even though I love the smell of scented candles. 
I have not burned them often unless there is a power outage. 
It's always nice to have extra candles!

iCurl Secret Weapon 24 hr Mascara | Full-size $35.96
I'm still on the hunt for an amazing mascara that won't flake and is good for senitive eyes. Crossing my fingers this is a good one. I doubt I would spend that much on a mascara. I find I'm willing to spend more if something truly works for me.

Birchbox BookClub 2014 Overview

Hey everyone,

It's awesome to not have a timecard to punch. I just took three months off from blogging! I didn't get fired and no one complained that I wasn't blogging. That is probably because I don't have a ton of readers, yet. I can count that as a blessing at this point and that means for me, blogging is still on my terms!

It's time to get back to blogging. School has started back (for my kids) and Halloween and Fall-break have quickly past. We are quickly coming up on the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons. I realized I haven't blogged like I used to. There is a reason I picked AlwaysDabble for my blog name. If you haven't figured it out yet, I often get distracted and don't always finish things like I should. I end up DillyDalling with lots of things.

So to get back in the blogging spirit.
I thought I would sit down and show you all the books I have from this inaugural year of the Birchboxes Book Club. In addition to subscribing to the woman's Birchbox subscription box.
