It’d be no surprise to any of you if I told you that two of my biggest loves are beauty and fashion. Really? A girl who writes about co-ordinating lipsticks and flouncy blouses for a living loves the two? You’re a groundbreaker girl! Regardless, when the two come together in force in the name of a monthly special offering (and a box decked out in breton stripes) this little one is bound to get a little excited.
I’ve been a huge Birchbox lover for quite a time now (if you spotted my new beauty post you’ll have observed my love of the monthly box already)! When I was in New York I heard numerous things about their incredible store (a lady doing my nails practically screeched with excitement whilst mentioning it), and I’ve collected the boxes and discovered gems from their original and exciting monthly collaborations for a while; ranging from lifestyle haven Habitat, their stunning Tatler ‘best of’ Brit box (Liz Earle, anyone?) to their current British shoe sweetheart, French Sole. With the current pairing teaming up to bring a box themed around summertime and ‘stepping outside’- pretty cool (and timely), right?
On top of that, they’ve bought you some adorable ballet flats to go hand in hand with the box (there are 3 beautiful different designs with matching shoe bags), meaning as well as discovering some new beauty favourites (with the likes of Cowshed, Pixi and Ren) you can have some seriously happy feet too- I’ll cheers to that! The brand will be having a flash sale on the 16th June to ladies already subscribed, selling the exclusively designed flats at a super special price too- so keep your eyes peeled for that! If they’re good enough for a certain Ms Palermo, they’re good enough for me!
Subscription is £12.95 a month (postage included- so no cheeky surprises)- but until the 15th June, you can get £5 off your French Sole box with the code ‘JuneWOD’– so head on over (and don’t forget to share you box images on social with the hashtag #BirchboxXFrenchSole for a chance to win a pair of flats, too!)
