This week I FINALLY got my first Birchbox! I didn't get it until Wednesday, so I am definitely not happy with how they ship. I know that it takes time to get things across the country, but I live in Iowa. I'm not two weeks away from NJ. Also, since this is my first one, it seems I'm one of the few that got completely screwed. I didn't get the blush! I only know of one other person (so far) that didn't get it. Ouch. Oh well. I'm going to give it another couple of months (I'll pay for next month, then use my points for the third... then I'll decide!) to see if things change. PLUS I heard that Fortune Cookie Soaps is going to be put in a box soon so I want to be around for that! How exciting! Ok, I'll move on to what I got and give my first impressions. I've been complaining enough! (I wish it would end here...)

Next "haul" item!
I got this in the mail with my birchbox. I was starting to wonder when it was going to show up! It's my free Hello Kitty stamping plate from Born Pretty Store!
I have been waiting for this like my life depends on it! It's so cute! It took a little over three weeks to get here, which isn't bad considering where it's coming from! If you couldn't tell, I am SO excited to do a mani with this! Expect one this week :)
