You and a friend will win a trip to NYC and an exclusive invitation to fashion designer Cynthia Rowley’s presentation for her fall 2014 collection. She launched her Birchbox-exclusive gorgeous makeup line just a few months ago, so we’re extra excited to see what inspiration she has up her sleeve for this next fashion collection.

1. Follow @Birchbox and @Cynthia_Rowley on Instagram!

Can’t wait to see your stylish pics!
Any beauty editor or dermatologist will tell you the same thing: Drinking lots of water is an important step to getting clear, healthy skin. H2O flushes out toxins and impurities from your system and helps bring vitamins and necessary nutrients to your skin.
This week we’ve partnered with resource Natural Spring Water to help keep our guests at Birchbox Local (our Fashion Week lounge that’s opening to the public next week) hydrated and happy. Resource Water will be there every day encouraging visitors to drink up—be sure to stop in anytime from the 12th to the 16th to shop for full-size product at our first ever retail pop-up!
And the fun doesn’t stop there: Starting 9/7 and ending 9/10, we’ll be posting a new water-related question on Instagram and Twitter each day. By answering it and tagging @ResourceWater, @Birchbox, and #BirchboxLocal, you’ll be entered for a chance to win a $300 Birchbox gift card, a year’s supply of Resource Water, a FitBitFlex Wristband, an Athletica tote and Maduka yoga mat, and more.
So, answer yesterday’s question and then watch out for today’s to enter for a chance to win! Good luck!

Yesterday we shared the results from our Beauty Pulse Survey, which reported that more than half the women surveyed had 3+ lip products in their purse at all times! Naturally, we decided to ask Birchbox staffers how many products they carried around, and we weren’t so shocked with what we found: some of our ladies had up to 22 lip products in their bags!
Next, we turned the question to our community. By tweeting @Birchbox with a photo of the inside of your purse, plus the number of lip products you carry and the tag #InMyPurse, you could win a bag of lip goodies from Birchbox!
We know that for beauty bloggers 140 characters isn’t enough, so here’s your chance to tell us more! Send us your blog posts detailing the number of products you have in your bag and why you can’t leave home without them. We’re sure you have a special reason for each and every product and we want to hear about them all! Maybe you’re carrying an awesome lip gloss or balm that we need to know about.
Email your blog posts to Birchbloggers@Birchbox.com by Sunday at midnight EST, and we’ll choose our favorite posts to feature on the Birchbox Blog next week! Plus, don’t forget to also share the post via Twitter with hashtag #InMyPurse and tag @Birchbox for a chance to win the bag of lip product goodies!
