Omgomg it’s my birthday. It’s finally here!

I think my birthday and Christmas are my favorite times of the year. Probably because I get presents on both of those days. But you know what? Today isn’t going to be just about me. Sure it’s my Birthday but I as I stated a few weeks ago, I wanted to share my birthday love with all of you guys out there!

I’ve been busy the past month, talking with my favorite companies and brands out there and they’ve donated so many wonderful things for you guys. I am so very appreciative of my loyal readers, people who leave sweet comments and of course, my lurker friends.

So, I’m giving back today. I’m giving you all a chance to win something! Not to each and every one of you because I have only a limited amount of things to give! But you know how it goes. Let’s get right into it because hello that is the most fun part of this post, right?

Look at all the goodies you can choose from!

Glymm points to spend

What would you pick if you had the option between these T3 styling tools, or would you not pick any of them? Why or why not?

I’ve been subscribed to a monthly beauty box called Glymm for nearly a year. I rarely post about the subscription boxes on my blog but I always do an unveiling of the boxes I receive monthly, on my YouTube channel. I have accumulated $205 worth of Glymm points from filling out the survey, to buying boxes for nearly a year and also from referring friends. I’ve always eyed up the T3 styling tools and wanted to gather enough points to get something of value.

//1. Single Pass Whirl clipless curling iron = $150.00
// 2. Featherweight Professional Hair dryer = $220.00
// 3. 1″ flat iron = $180.00

Is it me or are they just ridiculously all overpriced? Is T3 the new Chi? Am I wasting my points on these tools?

Here are my thoughts:

//1. I’ve always wanted a clipless curling iron.  But I’m useless when it comes to properly styling my hair.
//2. I already have a nice hair dryer.
//3. I try not to straighten my hair much anymore because it’s damaging.

Did I already answer my questions?

I’ve read all the reviews on Sephora and both have equally good and bad things said about them.I’m just stumped right now and I have been for weeks. Which is why I have decided to post this oh so heart wrenching  “dilemma” on my blog.

Or I could skip out on all of these products and just go buck wild and get a ton of little things like hand creams and shampoos. But I feel like I have enough of those from subscribing to FOUR deluxe sample boxes for the last little while. Off to research skid steer for sale. But before I go…

What would you get?

GlossyBox now available to Canadians

Yet another subscription box to come to Canada. I know, we probably have the highest amount of sampler boxes around. There’s Glymm, Loose Button, Top Box and now Glossybox which originates from the UK. They guarantee five products in each box per month and sometimes throw in a sixth product. It’s also the most priciest of the bunch going for $15/month, with free shipping.

It’s starting to get a little out of control. Later on this evening if you check out my YouTube channel I’ll be unboxing my first 2012 box, which is the TopBox I received yesterday. Originally in January I had planned on doing a Glymm vs. Loose Button vs. Top Box, but I think I’ll be waiting until February to include GlossyBox as well! I’m definitely not going to stay subscribed to all four boxes because I think it’s a little much, especially looking at the cost add up at the end of the month.

I didn’t know Glossybox was available to Canadians until my friend on YouTube from Toronto, Aleeza wrote about it on her blog.

Not sure you want to sign up? I was hesitant as well. The only reason I ended up signing up for the February box, was that I was completely sold after seeing MissHanaG’s December box, again — thanks to Aleeza for pointing me towards that great box unveiling video, and to another great YouTube channel.

I like it when these subscription boxes give you deals for referring people. Click any of the Glossybox links I’ve been linking all in this blog post and you’re linked to my referral page. When you sign up, like Glymm for every friend that subscribe, Glossybox will credit you 200 GLOSSYDots as a thank you. . So that’s kind of neat.

Aleeza made a great point stating that the sample box market is getting a little saturated, however it keeps those four companies fighting for our service and perhaps the products themselves will end up getting better.

I too am going to wait until February to give my review on my first Glossybox. Stay tuned!
