This month, we asked subscribers to take on 12 power-up challenges to amp up your summer. And you did not disappoint! We rounded up some of your awesome accomplishments thus far right here. There’s still time to take the challenge before it ends on July 31 for a chance to win a collection of July 2014 Birchbox products, plus a trip to NYC for a beauty and fitness upgrade that will be featured in an upcoming issue of Women’s Health. Just tag your photos with #PowerUpChallenge @Birchbox and #Giveaway.
Subscriber Nicole checked off the first challenge by writing down her workout (Side bends! Lying hip twists! Planks!) on cheery yellow paper.
“It feels strange but looks great!” says subscriber Ashley about switching up her part. We totally agree.
We’d like to have Jessica’s kale-and-cherry tomato omelet every morning.
Subscriber Shannon is pushing her normal shade boundaries with “a perfectly pretty summer purple lip.”
Swapping your desk chair for a stability ball like Judy? A genius (and easy) way to sit smarter while working.
We’re totally on board with Stacey’s plan to dodge her reflection —except post-lunch to check her teeth!
Judy’s strategy for a good night’s rest? A good book, chamomile tea, lavender spray, and a scented candle.
Subscriber Rebecca is sneaking more than 10 minutes into her schedule by doing some yoga al fresco.
“Decided to go a #bluestreak today with some navy eyeliner,” writes Ana. Love it.
Climbing the 8 flights of stairs to her office has subscriber Misse “forming a lil perspiration on her brow.”
Subscriber Jane looks like she already has perfect form. She’s working on her pull-ups, too. Impressive.
