This month’s Birchbox sees an exciting collaboration with high-end glossy Harper’s Bazaar.
I used to read Harper’s Bazaar a few years back but stopped buying it as I found it too aspirational; although I loved reading it and dreaming about all the beautiful fashion, beauty and lifestyle products it festured and all the places I’d love to travel, most of those things were out of my budget and unattainable. I guess I realised I was never going to marry that handsome millionaire and that all the money I spent on glossy magazines each month could go towards something else. Like bills. Le sigh!
But the idea of aspiration is what I think is so amazing about this collaboration between Birchbox and Harper’s Bizarre – beauty boxes are supposed to feel luxurious and indulgent and I don’t just want to see brands I can pick up cheaply on the high street – and luxury is exactly the sort of feel I’m hoping this Harper’s Bizarre edition will have in bucket loads!
For May’s Birchbox I am expecting a carefully curated box of luxury, high-end, niche products, mixed in with perhaps a couple of brands that we know and love but which have proven to be hardworking handbag essentials and cult classics. Not expecting too much then am I?
Yes Birchbox has high expectations to live up to this month, and I guess we shall see when more details are leaked (expect a further spoiler post when I find out what brands and products may feature).
