Birchbox SoHo

Last weekend it was absolutely gorgeous out so we decided to go to the city. Since I hadn't been to the actual Birchbox store yet, it was my main focus! You would've thought it was my first time going shopping in a make-up store with how excited I was. It was a little embarrassing to say the least! We got there a few minutes before they opened so I tried to play it cool when they opened the doors like "yeah I'm totally not waiting to come in or anything". I know, I'm a super dork. We had the store to ourselves for a little bit while looking around which was so nice. The staff was super friendly and the store looked impeccable! I was in awe! We looked at absolutely everything there was. I loved the store, but I don't think my husband was too impressed. The men's section was pretty small and men can't build a box for themselves unless they want to build a women's box (which I don't recommend, you'll see why in a minute).  

My husband and I both have Birchbox subscriptions and love them, so I had to build a box for myself while we were there. For the most part I loved everything I picked, however, there are a couple complaints I have. I didn't understand why it was more expensive to build you own box when you get the same amount of products. I also didn't care for the fact that you had to pick something from each section (body & nails, skincare, fragrance, hair, and makeup). I could've done without the fragrance and body & nails selections and gotten a couple other things I wanted, but oh well, it was still fun to do. They were also doing a gift with purchase so I got to pick the Green Apple Peel by Juice Beauty as my selection which was nice! Overall I did love it and look forward to going back, especially with the holidays coming up! If you have a chance to go you definitely should! 

My Picks:


  1. Hi Casey! I wished I lived in NY to be able to visit the Birchbox store but instead I shall visit it through the eyes of you and other Birchbloggers, lol. After reading what you said, I think that's a little strange too that you have to pick one item per section especially if you are paying for box and extra just to pick it yourself.

    PS: I nominated you for the Liebster Award because I really like your blog.

    Here is a link to my post and instructions on what to do:

    1. Hello Carol! Thank you so very much for the kind words, it is greatly appreciated! I do love living so close to NYC. We moved out here about 7 months ago from the midwest so it's been a big adjustment, but there are so many things to do and see that make it so amazing! Since I am still a novice at blogging, I'm not sure of the proper etiquette to handle the Liebster Award because I was nominated before and did a post. Do I do it again? No problem if I do, it was very thoughtful for you to think of me! Have a great week!
