USPS Style Box of Joy and my first giveaway!

Do any of you rember when USPS promised to launch a "Style Box of Joy"? There was a lot of hype about it on twitter and in the blogosphere but when it came time to access the website to put your information in, the website went down. I refreshed it for awhile, checked other blogs and twitter, and eventually the website loaded and I was able to get my information in! That was awhile ago and I had forgotten all about it until I got a notification that my box was shipping a few days ago! I was super excited to see what was inside...


The items shipped in a USPS medium flat rate box. I've used flat rate boxes quite often when shipping things and while they're pretty expensive to ship, the service is very fast and reliable.


First look! The box felt fairly heavy so I had no idea what to expect.

They included a letter saying what all the items were, but it was mostly to inform you how to share the goodies in the small flat rate box that they also provided. I think this was a marketing promotion for flat rate boxes- and hey, that works for me!


Harper's Bazaar Fashion: Your Guide to Person Style: This is a sizable book with lots of gorgeous fashion photos in it. This is going to look great on my coffee table!

Rembrandt Stain Dissolving Strips and Whitening Toothpaste with Floride: I wasn't super excited to see toothpaste (because toothpaste) but I am excited to see the whitening strips! I will definitely be giving these a try- iced tea has not done good things to my teeth. My dentist once told me tea will stain your teeth even more than coffee!


Tracy Reese Special Offer: I've never heard of this brand before but for 20% off I'll be sure to check it out!

RoC Retinol Correxion Sensitive Night Cream and Nivea Smooth Sensation Body Lotion: These were pretty small packets but you can't get wrong having lotion on hand. These will go in the giveaway box!

Me Time Music Collection: I've heard of a few of these artists but I'm excited to load this into my iTunes and give the playlist a try. I haven't received an actual music CD in years!

Neutrogena Moisture Shine Lip Gloss: This gloss is a nice coco shade that's not totally opaque so it's not too overwhelming. It also tastes/ smells nice and isn't too sticky.

The songs on the cd.


SOHO Beauty Bag: This is a great makeup travel bag! I like how it's triangular which means that the contents of the zippered pocket won't necessarily get smashed. It also has brush holders which I love.

The giveaway goodies! I'll also be adding a few more things from my unused subscription stockpile! Enter below:
