Birchbox 3 Months On

Image
Subscription boxes are a weird niche, they're a nice little pick me up each month tailored to you. For me, I've always wanted to try these and for the past three months, I've been subscribed to Birchbox. Each month I've received a bunch of products and I've given my verdict on them. I thought I would review the whole service after three months of purchasing and share my loves from the boxes and the ones you could definitely miss out on. 

The boxes overall have been good, there hasn't been any in which I haven't been disappointed. The service offers boxes tailored to you, after filling out a quick questionnaire it helps to tailor the products to you. What I've found throughout the boxes is it's normally 1 or 2 products that you will receive that might be different to what other people receive. This means there isn't that much personalisation around the box and what you get. 

However, I feel like the products in there, for the most part, are tailore…

The Ikea Bits You Need To Pick Up For Summer




Ikea is that one place where I end up buying so much stuff I don't need. I can't look round without picking up stuff. I thought I would show you some of the things I picked up on my recent trip. They have some of the cutest stuff for Summer now.

The first thing I picked up was these glasses. They are so cute and the flamingo detail is great for Summer. They do full sized glasses as well but I thought these would be cute for Summer. Great for a nice Summer drink and sitting in the garden. I just loved the cute detailing on them and for just 75p you can't go wrong.






I also picked up this mug as well. This is such a cute mug and the detailing gives it a nice vintage feel. I would probably use this if I'm having a cup of tea as I don't tend to have a lot of hot drinks. I just loved how small and practical this was as it's not too heavy or fragile. For just 95p it was too cute not to get it.



I then decided to pick up some plants. Over the past couple of months I've been collecting cactus and I decided to get some more for my collection. I picked up this pack of three and honestly I love them. I didn't want to get any that were too big as I don't have a lot of space when I move out again in September so these were perfect. Each one is so distinct, I haven't managed to find many similar to these. For the pack of 3 they were just £4.50which was such a bargain.



I also picked up a succulent plant as well. When I move back out I want to change the layout of my room so I thought some new plants would help me to change the look of it. This comes in such a nice pot that would look great on my window sill when I move back in. As they are a really easy plant to look after I might be getting some more in the next couple of months. This was just £3 and they have so many different ones to choose from.



The last thing I picked up was this pack of prints. I am thinking of using more prints and posters when I move back out as I didn't feel like I really made the most out of my accommodation and all the wall space I don't really think I used well. This features a range of prints that I can't wait to put onto my walls. I might try and put some of them into frames and put them on my desk. This pack of prints was just £1 so even if I don't use all 4 of them it's still such good value for money.



For now that's all that I bought. I don't want to get as much stuff this time when I move out again as I found myself taking back a lot of the stuff I had bought when I first moved in. If you have any decor items you like comment them down below and i'll check them out.
