Birchbox + The Tig

The Tig Archives 06 / 05 / 2015

When Birchbox first launched many moons ago, I remember saying to a friend that this was unequivocally the best idea ever. I’ve always loved samples of beauty products (think: the girl who asked for mini perfumes any time she walked through a first floor of a Bloomingdales) and then (as though the beauty Gods were hearing my prayers) this idea was spawned by the geniuses at Birchbox: to actually mail these little gems to you, in addition to all things you never knew you always wanted, every single month. Personalized, just for you, and for just $10. I was undone.

So picture the look on my face when late last year, Birchbox reached out and asked us to collaborate on a Tig Birchbox for the month of June 2015. The Tig – my baby, my little engine that could- with all of my musings, dreams, and sometimes nonsensical wonderment condensed to a few pages on the world wide web. They wanted my brainchild-come-brand to be arm in arm with them, landing on the doorsteps of gorgeous gals all over the country (and in Canada too!). To say this is a dream com true would be an understatement, which is why I took extra care to ensure this box was an authentic reflection both of myself and of The Tig aesthetic. Each box contains my favorite summer time products for jetsetting, lounging at the beach, or pampering yourself at home, plus a handwritten note from me. Because we all know how I feel about putting pen to paper. I truly hope you enjoy, and that if you aren’t a subscriber to Birchbox, you rethink that pronto and sign up here using promo code THETIG. If you want to buy any of the individual full size products or check out what I tucked into this precious pocket of goodness, just see below. Cheers to the ladies of Birchbox – love you guys to the moon and back!
