I was so excited this afternoon when the postman dropped off a parcel for me, and even more excited when I seen that it was my BirchBox. This month BirchBox have swapped the box for a bag, and I personally think they are awesome! They are great to take to the beach, or the park, or on holiday and I love that they are coloured see-through decent sized bags which you can hold a good amount of stuff in them, and they are just perfect for the summer weather.
I personally would have preferred the pink Ibiza bag but that's just because I love the colour pink so much, but this is what I got inside my coral "St. Tropez" bag:
