Sleep Deprived and a BirchBox Review

I hope you all are entering the awesome growth ruler giveaway! I know I am going to enter! Just kidding. Although that would be funny to announce that I was the winner.

I am trying my best to not fall asleep right now as I have not been sleeping at all the past few nights. I am talking up until 1am tossing and turning and then up every 2 hours in the night to use the restroom. I know it is to get ready for the new baby and it will only get worse but I just cannot function on zero sleep.  I was hoping in some way I would have total restful sleep before the baby but that's pretty laughable at this point.

Yesterday I was laying in bed while Claire was having her morning sippy cup and I started to fall asleep and I felt this painful smack right on my face. Claire threw her book  followed by the remote control at point blank range. That felt awesome, she then let the dogs into the room and well I knew I wasn't going to get any rest at that point.

However when I went to the front door yesterday morning in my groggy state my August BirchBox arrived! Hoorah! Or as Nik likes to call it my "bitchbox". It is something I look forward to each month. What is BirchBox you ask? It is a monthly beauty subscription where you receive new products you may have otherwise never tried. Plus for $10 a month you get one item that is retail value. So much goodness in one little box. Then if you really love a sample you can log into your account, purchase, and collect points to use towards a future item. You can find information on them here: BirchBox. For the men out there who want new products, there is a membership for them as well.

Here are some pics of my August BirchBox

Items Inclue: Schick Hydro Silk Razor, Miss Jessie's Original Quick Curls, Beauty Fixation Make Up Remover, Juicy Coture Viva la Juicy La Fleur (sample), and Pixi Beauty Lid Last Shadow Pen
