Birchbox October 2014 Review: Work It!

The theme of this months Birchbox is ‘Work It!’ It includes a 14 day planner to help focus on your work/life balance and reach your end of year goals.

They have teamed up with CoppaFeel, a breast cancer awareness charity based in London. The charity focuses on promoting early detection of breast cancer by encouraging woman under 30 to regularly check their breasts. This month they are asking us to ‘coppafeel’ and share our photo with the message I COPPED A FEEL! @CoppaBirchbox @CoppaFeelPeople @BirchboxUK and they will donate £1 to CoppaFeel.

If you would like a monthly reminder to ‘CopaFeel’ then text BOOBS to 70300 for a free reminder every month! (The initial text is charged at your normal network rate, but reminders are free)

Now for a look at this months box…




In reflection of breast cancer awareness, the colouring of this months box is pink and comes with a pink bag to tuck away all of this months treats!
