Even when we can’t hop across the pond, our Birchbox counterparts in Europe keep us in the know with insider deets on the coolest goings-on. Every week, we’ll be sharing our favorite Instagrams from each of the four Birchbox teams so that you can travel the world without getting on a plane.

Birchbox France hosted a blogger party with lingerie brand Princesse tam.tam last week for the launch of their February box. It was a great success!

Fashion weeks around the world have finally come to a close and we’ve carefully taken note of all the fantastic hair trends that appeared on the runway this season. We saw many styles from complicated updos to giant curls, but one trend in particular remained consistent throughout the shows and unlike the many avant garde gowns, this look can easily be worn everyday.
While Fashion Week tends to feature looks that even the chicest among us would have to tone down, occasionally something totally wearable makes an appearance on the runway. Case in point: the ladies at last week’s Valentino’s fall 2013 runway show in Milan. We love that the fresh face and polished side braid look is easy to recreate at home—and it’s a great a daytime style that can be amped up for a night out.
