Birchbox Breakup: I'm with My Glam Bag now.

Last month, my friend Ashley informed me that My Glam was offering more subscriptions! I had heard about them a little bit but when I had tried to sign up, they were sold out.

 It is pretty much the same idea as Birchbox.
You go to the My Glam website and take a personality quiz.
If you wish to sign up, it is a $10 monthly subscription. 
Each month, you will be sent a bag with beauty products based on your personality.
They offer videos from Youtube gurus (Michelle Phan, Andrea, Promise, Jessica, Bethany) creating looks using the products from the monthly bag.
You can unsubscribe whenever you want. 

I am so glad that I was able to subscribe to My Glam. In my opinion it is 10X better than Birchbox. You not only get a cute makeup bag each month, but you get FULL SIZE products from brands that you actually know. (and no food items..lol) I had waited to get my first My Glam bag to decide whether or not to cancel my Birchbox membership and as soon as I recieved this, there was no doubt in my mind. 
Goodbye Birchbox :(


Overall, I am SO happy with all of the products that I received for January and I cannot wait until I get my next bag! If they make more subscriptions available I would recommend subscribing because it is a great value for only $10! (They often announce when they have more subscriptions available on their Facebook and Twitter accounts.)

I also wanted to share with you some blog awards I received from some lovely ladies. :)
Blog awards
Becca at Cosmo2011Girl  awarded me the Versatile Blog Award.
Angela from Living for the City awarded me the Most Versatile Blog Award.
I want to thank you guys so much! It really makes me happy when I receive such great feedback from followers of my blog. 

Melina at Only a Flight Away also tagged me to do this questionnaire. 

1. I don't think that I would change my name!
2. I don't read any specific blogs daily. Just whoever comes up on my blogger feed. 
3. My first date with my boy friend was at a local fair 3 years ago.
4. I have one older brother
5. I can't think of the most embarrassing.. But not too long ago, I was using the bathroom at my school and I didn't notice the door to my stall came open. The teacher of my next class walked right in front of it. Ya..
6. If I won the lottery I would first buy a house for sure. I would then plan a trip to California because I have always wanted to go there so badly. 
7. People who are mean and rude for no reason.
8. The biggest decision I have made so far in my life is what I was going  to go to college for. I chose nursing as my major. :)
9. Not at all. lol
10. Yes. I usually workout 3 or 4 days of the week when I do not have school. I <3 working out.
11. Probably washing dishes. ugh.

Thank you for reading! :)

  3. nice products, but they lost my service they treated me horribly ;-(

    1. That's dumb. :( It is always bad when a company has bad customer service. I had some problems with the shipping being pretty late.

  4. I'm really thinking about signing up for MyGlam. But I think I will wait another month to see what comes in next month's bag.

    I also love your previous post on the Maybelline Color Tattoo eyeshadows. I have 5 colors and I love them so much!

    xoxo Aisha

  5. Congratulations!!!!
    Besitos ^^

  6. I keep trying to break up with Birchbox, but My Glam is unavailable right now.. Lol. I actually just signed up today to receive notification when they're accepting more subs.. I really love that this one is ALL beauty products.. which I thought I would get more of when I signed up with Birchbox. Thanks for sharing, Dani!

  7. I love your blog! I followed! I would love it if you would check out my blog and follow me? Thanks so much! http://camigmakeup4u2c.blogspot.com


  8. I want to sign up but I wasnt sure, because I havent heard from anyone except the gurus about it....but i think you just convinced me to try it!


  9. I would try this but its like,sold out! Lame! Anyways, I just wanted to mention that I have a full bottle of Wen and it is amazing. I dont use shampoo with it, I just put it in and wow, I get amazing results. If you color treat your hair, wen brings it back to life. Totally worth the 30-so ish bucks for it :)

    1. I was actually wondering if it worked well because I had just seen the info-mercial on it! Thank you I can't wait to try it.

  10. I would love to try this out- I hope they ship to Canada.

    I was wondering if you could do a post on your haircolor? :)

    My hair is a darker blonde right now, but I would love to go lighter for Spring & summer =)

    1. I am not sure if they ship to Canada or not, but I hope they do!
      And, yes I was planning on doing a type of "How I Color my Hair" post coming up! :)

    2. Yay :) Can't wait for it.

      Thanks so much for following my blog, Dani :-)


Comments make me happy. :)
