I love beach days and ice cream cones as much as anyone, but for me summer means escaping into the delicious cool of a movie theater, settling in with an outrageously large bucket of popcorn, and giving in to the flash-bang-ridiculousness of silly action flick. It’s no surprise that my weekend plans involve seeing both Fast and the Furious 6 and Man of Steel.
Here’s what some other Birchbox staffers love about summers past and present.
"When I think summer, I think summer camp! My favorite summer pastime is swimming in cold lakes on hot days." —Hayley
"Dirty gin martinis and Cadbury Crunchie Bars." —Dana
"Dawson’s Creek on Netflix!" —Kendall
We’d be lying if we said there wasn’t a little East Coast bias at Birchbox HQ. But since Associate Editor and San Francisco native Candice started here a few months ago, we’ve opened our eyes to the wonders of the West. Like mass quantities of Red Vines and a generally more laid-back, cool approach to life. Today we snuck a shot of her product-filled desk including the amazing OCC Lip Tars she wrote about yesterday.

Our office manager, Nicole, is wonder woman. No, really. It’s the only explanation for how on top of everything she is. From human resources and employee benefits to keeping us well fed with treats at all times, she does it all. We snagged a few minutes of her time to take a peek at her desk.
