Birchbox vs. Glossybox ~ December Edition

Hey lovelies!  As many of you, I'm a huge lover of monthly beauty product boxes.  Since I know many of you love to see what's inside them (as I do too!) and also, you (and I too!) wonder how they stack up, different price points, different products, etc.  I thought I'd start showing you how the two I subscribe to stack up; I bring you Birchbox vs. Glossybox, December Edition.  {More after the jump}

Christmas DIYs From the Past

Hey lovelies!  We were welcomed with some much needed snow here in Denver today, so I thought I would share with you all some fun, easy, and beautiful Christmas DIYs for you to do!  These are all from last year, so they're oldies but goodies!  And if you didn't catch them last year, they're new to you!  These are great for some last minute decorations, or even better as gifts!  I love hanging an ornament on the ribbon of a gift, as an extra gift.  {More after the jump}
