That store is just so aesthetically pleasing to be in, with it’s bleached wood, hot pink, purple, pale pink and gold color scheme and wonderfully chic graphics how can one not be tempted?
Happy Holidays to me, oh boy another excuse to whip out the plastic. But it is challenging to work in Soho and not shop. Last week I got together with fellow blogger Renata who took photos of me for this post. We met outside the building I work in, and decided to do a bit of window shopping before heading to dinner at The Dutch. Renata had never been to Birch Box so of course we had to “pop in” to “look around”, and well, needless to say I walked out with a bag on my arm. That store is just so aesthetically pleasing to be in, with it’s bleached wood, hot pink, purple, pale pink and gold color scheme and wonderfully chic graphics how can one not be tempted? I was just going to try a shadow or two, figured may as well get a bit more dolled up before heading to dinner. I have been wanting to pick up a gray shadow for a while now so when I saw this one from Cynthia Rowley I thought I would give it try for “next time”. Hmm, yes of course I bought the set. But it is not bad for $40! The gray color I tried looked great and was easy to blend—no splotches. Then when I tried the silver as a rim highlighter over my eyes, I was sold. My eyes really popped and I created a fun smoky look rather effortlessly. So if you are in need of smoky shadow or a fun eyeshadow kit that is fairly easy to tote around head on over to Birch Box and tell them Allie sent you!
