Last week I was invited along to a blogger dinner organised by Birchbox and Habitat. The two have just collaborated on the latest Birchbox subscription box and also Habitat have just launched beauty storage boxes and some absolutely gorgeous dressing tables, which I was excited to see. At the dinner there was a handful of beauty and also lifestyle and interior bloggers. It was a really great mix and it was so nice to meet some new faces. Can you spot me?

Birchbox x Habitat Blogger Dinner

We ate a beautiful meal in which I had, beef carpaccio, chicken and a yummy chocolate tart coupled with some wine, it was a perfect evening. I don’t have many pictures for you as I never took my camera because the battery was running low, which was because I did however film a ‘Get Ready With Me’ before the dinner, which you can watch on my YouTube channel.

We all left with a goodie bag filled with the March Birchbox and also the grey and orange storage box, so I thought I’d give you a closer look.

Birchbox March Box

The Birchbox if you are unfamiliar is a monthly subscription box that will set you back just £10 a month with £2.95. P&P. Each month there are over five personalised goodies in sample size to let you try different products out. To me this is fab, there is nothing more annoying than buying a full-size product and then you dislike it and can’t take it back! So this is the perfect way to try. This month’s box as well as teaming up with Habitat, it also lets you choose your own Benefit sample of mascara. So what was inside?

– Benefit Mascara in either BADgal Lash, Roller Lash or They’re Real! (your own choice)

– Catherine Malandrino Style de Paris perfume sample.

– Philip Kingsley Smooth Cream

– TanOrganic Self Tanning Oil

– Janjira Pomegranate & Acai Facial Scrub Cleanser

– A Perfect Heritage by Penny Vincenzi (sample chapters)

– Birchbox x Habitat Notebook

– 20% off at Habitat

Habitat Beauty Storage

So now I have more beauty samples, where to put them? Well handy that they also filled our goodie bag with the new Habitat storage box. The Maisie grey and orange round storage box is £30 and is a great size for lots of make-up bits. The top-tier has divided sections, reminds me of a Trivial Pursuit and then it lifts up to reveal an under layer.
