Fun Findings Friday #84

Free For All Special Edition Birchbox:
I really wish Birchbox offered their special edition boxes more often, they’re so great! Their newest one, the Free For All Special Edition Birchbox, is one of the best I’ve seen them come out with, and I do like that they share with you the items you’ll be receiving before you place your order. For $44, you’ll receive 11 products, all free of paragons, phthalates, sulfates, petrochemicals, and GMO. So looking forward to this arriving!

Spanx Store Opening in Tampa:
I have very exciting news for my fellow Tampa peeps this morning! Spanx, the company that helps make you look great with its extensive line of shapewear products, is opening a new retail store in town this morning at International Plaza. In honor of the store’s opening at 10 a.m. today, Spanx founder, Sara Blakely will be in attendance to cut the ribbon and do a Q&A with customers. In addition, the first 100 shoppers to arrive at the store will receive a complimentary Spanx product (valued at $26-$38), and $100 “shaping spree” gift cards will be raffled off throughout the day. I’m so bummed I won’t be able to make it today, but you better believe I’ll be stopping in this weekend!

Wish I Was Here Trailer:
Back in January, my best friend and I went to the Sundance Film Festival (read my posts here), where  Zack Braff debuted his new film, Wish I Was Here. Unfortunately for us, this was the #1 anticipated film and we weren’t able to score tickets. On the bright side, the film was picked up (not all of the films that premiere at Sundance are) and will be released this summer on July 18! The first trailer was released earlier this week, finally giving us a glimpse! There’s not much speaking in the trailer, it’s more of a visual with music, but based on what’s shown, it looks like it’ll be a pretty emotional movie. I can’t wait to see it!
