Of course you do! I want to tell you about Coastal Contacts. I am not being paid to say this, I just think it’s a great website.

I have two pairs of glasses from Coastal, even though I mostly wear the first ones I got.

Was the only picture I could find of me in them and trust me you do not want me to take a picture of myself right now. Wearing Derek Cardigan 7004 Green Tortoiseshell.

Second pair:

Wearing Joseph Marc 4050 Black Silver. 

Now, here’s the deal. Your first pair of glasses with Coastal is FREE. You just have to pay shipping + handling, plus any other upgrades you wish to make to your glasses. For my first pair, I paid $18.85. $9.95 for shipping and $8.90 for handling and insurance.

When you think of all of the pricy glasses out there, that’s a pretty good deal, right? The world’s an amazing place when you can see it.

Day 3: A picture of your favorite store.

I will never forget the first (and only time unfortunately) that I went into Saks. Time stood still. I’m pretty sure my brother had to wipe drool from my mouth. I may have only been there once (need to go back to NYC soon) but it is a magical, lovely place that can probably cure terminal illnesses.

If you haven’t heard of Birchbox, it’s a beauty box that you can subscribe to in order to recieve “deluxe samples”.

There are three options: $110 for 12 months (one free month)

$10 per month, or a gift birchbox with 12, 6, and 3 month options.

I thought I’d give it a go after seeing some of the things people got, and you can cancel at any time.

I wasn’t exactly expecting wonderful, full-size products, but when it finally came today, I was extremely disappointed.

What I got, in detail:

-Color Club nail laquer in He Loves Me

-Harvey Prince Ageless scent

-Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint

-Orofluido Beauty Elixir

-Stila Smoky Eye Card

-‘Bonus’ Tea Forte skin-smart teas

As you noticed, they are all very small samples. Hopefully, I’ll actually be able to sample them. Take my suggestion and skip Birchbox. Save your money.

*More to come when I try the samples!
