March Birchbox + Melissa Learns to Crochet!

Saturday, March 17, 2012

Greetings on this gorgeous Saturday & Happy Saint Patricks Day Bees! I hope it is beautiful where you are too.

Yesterday was HIGHLY productive for me. I learned how to crochet (thanks to my 'amazing' friend Diane) and managed to dominate the production of an entire scarf in an hour and a half sitting!! Do I hear applause? I can't wait to show you what I came up with, but first let's talk Birchbox! This month was deliciously surprising as my little box was loaded with beauty goodies and even some 'inner beauty' goodies... I'll explain. 

March Birchbox:  
Let's review the contents together as usual shall we? 

Juice Beauty - Blemish Clearing Cleanser - Full Size $22
I absolutely LOVED the Juice Beauty mask I received in last month's Birchbox so I am sure I will love this cleanser as well. 

Color Club - Nail Laquer in Age of Aquarius - Full Size $8
Love, love, love this awesome spring color! It dries fast & goes on nicely. 

And again...
Green nails just in time for Saint Patty's! No pinching here. ;)

Stila - Smokey Eye Card - 3 Shadows Full Size $45
Can't wait to play with these beautiful neutrals. 

Harvey Prince - Yogini - Full Size $26-55
Delicious smelling perfume with hints of sandalwood, egyptian myrrh, and grapefruit. PERFECT for Springtime! 

Lulu Organics - Lavender + Clary Sage Hair Powder - Full Size $30 
I absolutely 'cannot' wash my hair everyday. Personally I don't believe it's healthy to be washing our hair as much as we do anyway. But for me personally, my hair would dry right out if I didn't give it a day or two to rest. That's why I am so looking forward to trying this new powder hair shampoo. 

Tea Forte - Skin-smart Teas - 16 Tea Bags $6
I am sipping on the Cherry Marzipan flavor as I type this and let me tell you- it's delish! 
A tea that is good for the skin? Awesome.

I hope that you are enjoying these reviews each month. If you have never heard of Birchbox, it works the same as if you were to receive a monthly magazine- except you score sweet deluxe beauty samples. It's $10 a month and it's just lovely. If you want to stay on top of what's 'new', this is the way to go. That's why I share it with you- to keep all of my readers up to speed with the newest 'what's - what'. ;) 

Are you ready to see my crochet creation!? This was a blast to make. I wasn't sure I would have the patience but it ended up turning out perfectly. Check it out:

Here is what I started with:

And here is the end product!:
FUN isn't it!? It's the perfect thing to dress up a boring shirt. I am rocking it with a plain black shirt and a skirt. I plan on having a tutorial sometime soon on how to create this look- it's beyond easy. I'm thinking a 'video' tutorial possibly? :) 

Thank you so much for reading. Love you all. I'll see you back here on Monday with some 
March Madness- 'Beauty Edition'.
