Birchbox Mystery Sample Pack August 2015 Review

Birchbox Mystery Sample Packs are available free with any $35+ purchase from the Birchbox store.  Purchasers need to remember to place the item in their cart before completing their purchase.  They are also available, without a purchase, for $10.  I receive lots of these since I purchase from them often, but I thought it would be fun to do a review of one of them.  I received this sample pack with my Prestige Headliners and Mass Appeal boxes earlier this month.

Although it was free with the Prestige Headliners and Mass Appeal boxes, it shipped separately.

Serendipity by Little Lace Box August 2015 Review

Serendipity is a subscription box that is delivered through Little Lace Box.  Serendipity is being delivered to current subscribers of Little Lace Box on a bi-monthly schedule.  Serendipity arrives in the “off” months of Little Lace Box, but I believe that Little Lace Box intends to make Serendipity a smaller, less expensive subscription.  (I think I remember reading that when Serendipity was first introduced.)  Since it is not yet available without a Little Lace Box subscription, here is information about their full size subscription box:
