Birchbox Meghan Markle Prize Pack!

How many times have we seen those amazing giveaways on Instagram?  How many times have we wondered who the prize winner was, and what they thought of the prize pack after they used the products?  

Well, I'm going to share my experience as an Instagram winner of a really cool prize! I was completely stunned when Birchbox notified me on Instagram that I had won their Meghan Markle Giveaway last fall!

I waited what felt like an eternity, and then, one day, my box arrived!
A lovely hand-written note was at the top of the pile of goodies.  So sweet! :-)

I'm totally loving the rest of these luxurious goodies, and I can't wait to tell you about them!

Now, one item is not pictured individually is L'Oreal's Keratase Masque Chroma Rich - Treatment.  I immediately boxed that up and sent it to my beloved stepmom.  She was totally impressed with how this treatment revived her stressed out hair! 

This Beauty Elixir by Caudalie by the "exilir of youth" used by Queen Isabelle of Hungary.  The light and rejuvenating scents of orange blossom, rose, mint and rosemary surround you with an aura of ultimate luxury.  Meanwhile your skin feels refreshed and cleansed with just a few spritzes of this amazing elixir.  I love the weight of the glass bottle and its delicate floral motif!  Seriously, this product makes me feel like royalty!

I really do love this primer by Laura Mercier.  It is light, highly moisturizing, and helps my makeup last all day!

Eve Lom's Cleanser is a thick, luxurious cream that arrives with its own matching muslin cloth.  I am truly amazed at how effective this single cleanser is at removing all of my makeup; mascara, eye shadow, foundation, everything melts away.  It makes my skin feel like a million bucks!

These fun plastic wine glasses from Govino are ready to go anywhere, anytime!  I love the little notch for my thumb!  Its such a lovely little touch!

Last, but certainly not least, The Essential by Kusmi Tea!  Oh my goodness, if you have a tea-lover, or just a tea-enjoyer, in your life, this would make such a sweet splurge-y gift!  I am totally impressed with the aromatic deep flavors, the delicate woven tea bags, and the fact that you can brew at least two cups of tea with one bag!

All of these lovely items are available at!  For more information about giving yourself the gift of 5 marvelous samples, plus a wonderful reward point system for purchasing full sized items, check out their available subscription (affiliate link)!
