June—and summer—are finally here, which means your latest Birchbox will be in your mailbox very soon! We’ve found that taking a trip down memory lane is the perfect distraction while we (not so) patiently wait for our new boxes.
This month, we loved discovering all of your beauty and unboxing rituals on Twitter and Instagram, and watching you share your favorite samples on YouTube! Here are just a few of your awesome unboxing videos from last month:
If you’re lucky enough to find yourself in a job where cocktail tasting is a legitimate work activity, then you have a good job. Last week, I ventured to the Empire Hotel with editorial team members Rachel and Lorelei to test out the spot’s cheeky “Gossip Girl" cocktail menu in the lobby bar. If you’re not familiar with the connection between the two (and shame on you if that’s the case), the hotel plays a major role in the show’s plot line as the luxury establishment owned by charmingly conniving Chuck Bass. (Fun fact: many of the hotel scenes are actually shot on location.)
Production of our special “Gossip Girl” Birchboxes is underway! We took a field trip to our warehouse to see how things were going and it was crazytown to see rows upon rows of sophisticated black boxes. Usually it’s a sea of bright pink, but in honor of our collaboration, we decided to amp up the drama. Very appropriate for “Gossip Girl,” no?
Operations associate, Loren, has a thing for nails- and we can’t blame her. We love reading about new finishes and fun techniques, so we thought we’d give her a weekly slot on our blog to wax poetic about all things manicure (and pedicure!) related. Check back every week for Nailing It, Birchbox’s dedicated polish series.
