We’re huge fans of singer Tristan Prettyman. And just when we thought we couldn’t love her anymore, the gorgeous star gave an incredible performance last week to a small group of our subscribers here in New York. This week, she kindly offered to write a guest post for us on one of our favorite topics: new products she’s discovered through Birchbox.
Tristan with our co-founders, Hayley and Katia.
I am actually writing this from Portland, Oregon where I have just returned from the greatest camping trip ever out near Mt. Hood. One of my best friends moved here nearly three years ago and I had never come to visit her. Especially since I’ve been traveling non-stop recently, it’s been nice to take a short break. I was just in NYC where I was busy running around promoting my new album, Cedar + Gold (coming out on October 2nd), and while I was in town I performed at Birchox’s Sample Stop event.
The Birchbox ladies are such gems, and the event was jam packed! I performed some new songs from my album, and also got to make a very special Birchbox from all the amazing samples they had at the event. To be honest, I just learned about Birchbox a couple months ago. While I’d been hearing all sorts of things about it, I hesitated to sign up for something monthly because I am never home. But I finally did and last week, I got my first box, The September Issue. I especially loved the the Oscar Blandi dry shampoo, which came in extra handy on this recent camping trip. It was a small, but glorious luxury item to have in the midst of camp fires, lake swimming, sun bathing and breezy nights.
This month, I was also excited for Sedu’s Anti-Frizz Polishing Treatment with Pure Moroccan Argan Oil, which is great for post-camping since the outdoors can really take a toll on your locks. But most of all, I am looking forward to using Color Club’s custom Birchbox cobalt blue polish, Insta-This.
