Is that not the biggest tree ever?
Apologies for the lack of substantive blog posts lately. We’ve been busy! We’ve moved offices and we’re shipping our second box any day now. We have interns - two of them! We’ve gotten some media and blog love, with much more on the way, and we’ve partnered with great brands like SpaWeek for giveaways. Perhaps a status check is in order.
Birchbox, October 2010
Headcount: Six! We’ve gained two immensely talented interns (for lack of a better word), Patrick and Shaila, who are contributing their considerable web, tech, marketing, and consumer research skills.
New digs: Our brand-new office has a ten-foot tall tree and several closets filled with beauty products. Our next door neighbors, Elephant Props, are pretty awesome.
Soundtrack: Cannot stop listening to Ellie Goulding, Britain’s latest export.
Startups we heart: We recently partnered with Market Publique for an awesome retro makeup video; we have gotten great advice from the super-smart founders of Pact eco-conscious undies; and we are scheming to create custom Birchbox cookies with Baking for Good.
Milestones: We have enough customers that Hayley’s arms are sore from pushups. Mollie has dipped her toes in the world of coding (or at least copy-pasting code). Katia is a deskside expert. Thanh has metrics!
Keep on keeping on…xoxo
