Birchbox 3 Months On

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…

Hidden Gems - Cow

I mentioned this lovely place a while ago in my vintage shopping post. But I didn't really do it that much justice. Cow has a special place in my heart and I am always so excited to go in there. I've managed to get more and more stuff from there recently. It's always good to go in frequently to get your hands on the new stuff and plus why wouldn't you want to go in there anywhere.

It's got a vintage feel to it, from old sweatshirts to sun dresses they have a good mix of everything. If you're a brand lover check out the top floor like a hawk it has the best bits. I managed to get a Tommy Hilfiger shirt here for £16 and it's one of my favourite shirts. It really holds everything, even a pair of cowboy boots that I am desperate to get my hands on.

Price wise it isn't the cheapest but with the amount of brands the place has i'm not surprised. It's one of the best places to just have a look round in. Whether you're on the hunt for something or not. I went in there with nothing in mind and walked out with a bag and shirt so you'll definitely find it difficult not to pick something up in here. I find the struggle harder to not buy anything so if somebody could please say they do this as well that'd be great.

The main winning point for this place is the location. It's based slap bang in the middle of the northern quarter with music shops, cafes, and other vintage shops squeezed into a couple of roads you can't really miss this place. When I first started coming into Manchester Cow was my direction point. It's easy to spot and close to everything.

Do I even need to give this place anymore brownie points. They have seamstress and steamers there as well so items that come in and need a little tlc can be sorted and tidied up. It helps especially if you aren't the best seamstress in the world aka me to have that little of help.

Overall this place is a gold mine, it has everything you'd need readily available. It was one of the first vintage shops I checked out and it's somewhere i will always crawl back to. Let me know if you've been there before and what your favourite pieces are from there.

                                Until next time, Chloe!
