We recently launched our Head of the Class limited edition box, a special collection curated just for all of our Birchboxers-in-training out there. Now, it’s been a few years since I’ve been in school (just how many I won’t say, but the name of this post probably gives it away), but just because my backpack has been replaced with a handbag and my notepad with an iPad, it doesn’t mean that this girl can’t appreciate style when she sees it. In short, I’m obsessed with this box, and I don’t care who knows it!

My penchant for art in junior high and high school knew no bounds (okay, it still doesn’t), so paint, glitter, Sharpie—you name it, I had it. I remember specifically in seventh grade using the brush of my nail polish to draw hearts on my nails for Valentine’s Day, which led to flowers, polka dots, and so on. I like to think I was ahead of the curve in the nail art game. And that’s where my love for this new limited edition box began: The nail polishes, and, more importantly, the Sequin Nail Art Kit from Color Club, bring me back those creative, carefree days when any surface was fair game as a canvas.

Don’t think I’m stopping at nail art (they were just my gateway products). I’m scooping up all of my must-haves for A+ style in our Birchbox Shop. Back to school? More like back to cool. (My 13-year-old self is so rolling her eyes at 30-year-old me right now.)
