Team Intros: Meet Rebecca and Kathleen!

Ever wonder who the great minds are behind Birchbox’s pretty photos and gorgeous graphics? Here are two parts of our secret sauce: meet Kathleen and Rebecca, the newest additions to our Creative Team!

Rebecca, our new Graphic Designer, recently moved to the Big Apple after earning a BFA in Graphic Design and Drawing, plus a minor in Business—such a smarty pants—from University of Wisconsin-Madison. Rebecca kept herself busy the last semester of college with essentially five jobs (one internship, three jobs, and freelance work), and we’re happy to keep her just as busy here at Birchbox where she creates amazing graphics spotlighted in your boxes each month. We love her happy demeanor and bright smile just as much as her creative genius. Find out more about Rebecca after the jump!

The Coolest Beauty-Artist Collabs in History

We fell hard for Natalie Alcala last fall, when the LA-based writer and blogger spent a week guest blogging for us. In fact, we loved her posts so much that we asked her to be a contributing editor. In addition to blogging for us once a week, she’ll also be writing for the Birchbox Magazine and keeping us up to speed on all things fashion, beauty, and fun.

Not many people know this, but I’m a huge art fan. I’d probably be more star-struck meeting Marina Abramović than Meryl Streep (although it would be a close call), and one of my life goals is to own an original Keith Haring painting. With that said, I always get a little giddy when a savvy beauty brand teams up with an influential artist to produce creative packaging or an inspiring campaign. Here are five of my favorites.

Team Intros: Meet Andrew!

With so much happening on every social media outlet (Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, oh my!), Birchbox community manager Rachel needed a helping hand. Luckily Andrew, previously a social media master at The Daily Voice, was ready, willing and able to jump on board as our Social Media Associate. His tweeting expertise, plus his knowledge of all things guy (takes one to know one), made him the perfect fit as a new voice for Birchbox Man. Read more about him below!

Hometown: Budd Lake, NJ 

Unofficial role: Resident Sports Nut

Fun fact: I’m a huge nerd for Doctor Who (it’s a British sci-fi TV show and it is fantastic).

Do You Have a Sunday Night Beauty Ritual?

Based in Washington D.C., Ayren Jackson-Cannady is so savvy that we wished she lived closer to NYC so that we could swap products with her. This beauty writer knows what’s up (she’s written for Fitness, Glamour, and Gloss Daily) and we’re excited to have her sharing her know-how and multi-culti beauty expertise as a contributing editor.

Am I the only one who gets all depressed on Sunday nights? After an amazing weekend full of naps on the sofa, sangria slushies, backyard barbecues, and everything in between, Sunday evening rolls around and it’s all over. But it doesn’t have to turn into a pity party.

Ever heard of the Sunday Night Beauty Ritual (SNBR)? Basically, you take the better part of Sunday evening to pamper yourself with a major at-home beauty treatment. I haven’t tried one yet, but all my beauty writer and editor buddies are on board with the practice. I have to say, their skin, hair, nails, (and sense of humor toward the work week) are seriously benefiting. Let’s get inspired together by these real life SNBRs:

“Sunday is my hair washing day. I wash and deep condition with a hair mask. Plus, I usually do any waxing and body scrubs that I don’t otherwise have time for during the week.”
—Nykia Spradley, Associate Beauty Editor at Ladies’ Home Journal

Fragrance Fit for a Power Outage

Based in Washington D.C., Ayren Jackson-Cannady is so savvy that we wished she lived closer to NYC so that we could swap products with her.

Over the weekend, severe storms pounded parts of the country from Missouri to New York to my little corner of Virginia, leaving millions (yes millions) sans electricity. Currently, I’m using a blissfully air-conditioned coffee shop as my office because my house is a sweat box with no working outlets. But, the boost in mercury and power shortage has given me the opportunity to experiment with my fragrance stash and find the perfect hot weather scents. You know how it goes: If you wear something too heavy during the summer months, you’re liable to make someone pass out from the fumes; if you wear something too light, you sweat it off after 10 minutes.

Team Intros: Meet Martin!

It’s hard to know where to begin when introducing men’s editor Martinmainly because we should have introduced you to him ages ago. Since coming on board in March, Martin has ramped up Birchbox Man's editorial from zero to 60, and continues to churn out incredibly thoughtful, brilliant copy with only one staffer handy—himself. The ladies of team content appreciate him because he has single-handedly upped our sports IQ as well as our “man speak” translation skills; and the whole office continues to be impressed by his extensive vocabulary and witty email banter. 

Name/Title: Martin Mulkeen, Editor, Birchbox Man

Hometown: San Francisco 

Unofficial role: The San Francisco Giants’ East Coast Fan Club

Fun fact: As a kid, I was an extra in Homeward Bound 2 and Nine Months. My scenes in both films were cut.

Beauty confession: It’s been about two years since I used a razor that wasn’t electric.

Currently loving: 4711. Original Eau de Cologne. It reminds me of my old man getting ready for Christmas dinner, which is the one day of the year he wears cologne. It’s a lighter and sportier scent, but transports me to a nostalgic wintertime place filled with Irish fisherman sweaters and Tanqueray and tonics. Also, Kiehl’s Ultimate Man Scrub Soap. Who knew a soap could also be a loofah?

Worth the splurge: I’ve been into this awesome Age-Less Face Cream from Lab Series for a while. It has this great warming effect and really tightens the skin on your face. 

Best grooming trick: Since I was a teenager, my eyebrows have resembled Andy Rooney’s. A couple of years ago, I discovered that sticking a comb in each one and running an Wahl Beard Trimmer across (or asking my barber to do this) really helps to tame these beasts.

Baggu’s Emily Sugihara is Inspiringly Low-Maintenance

When you think successful female CEO in New York City, a minimal beauty routine isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. But there’s nothing typical about Emily Sugihara, founder of chic reusable bag company, Baggu. The eco-entrepreneur is way more into surfing and rock climbing than makeup but she is really serious about her sunblock—a girl after our own hearts! Earlier this month, we sat down with the ever-busy businesswoman to talk about her active lifestyle and plans for total world domination. Here’s a link to our profile of Sugihara, but these are some of our favorite highlights:
