Throwback Thursday: Birchbox Staffer Edition


Throwback Thursday or #tbt has become an internet mainstay, so of couse we’re jumping on the bandwagon. This week’s brave soul: our Community Manager, Rachel.

You wouldn’t know from the looks of my put together 29-year-old self, but there was a time when I was not the stylish lady you see before you. Let me take you back to the spring of 2007: the Spice Girls had a reunion tour, Heidi and Spencer made a music video, Shrek the Third was released, and I was living in Paris as a graduate student at the American University of Paris.

Rachel Silver, Community Manager

Hometown: Huntington Woods, Michigan

Unofficial role: Social Butterfly 

Fun fact: I was a competitive Synchronized Figure Skater from ages 7-20. If you are not from Michigan or Canada you probably have no idea what that means. Click here to be amazed.

Beauty confession: I just started using night cream this year! Obviously it’s totally improved my skin. I keep getting compliments and have to pretend I have no idea why my skin looks so nice.

Currently loving: Jouer Lip Enhancer. I got a sample in the Birchbox I received when I came in for my first interview and was immediatly hooked!

Worth the splurge: Moroccan Oil. Does that count as a splurge? I’m addicted to all of the products. I use their Hydrating Styling Cream when I blow my hair out, Curl Control Mousse in the summer (it’s so not mousse—they should call it Foamy Goodness), and Intense Curl Cream if it’s super humid.

Best beauty trick: Hammer-style blow dryers. Some people make fun of me but I’ve been using them since I was in eighth grade and it makes blowing out curly or wavy hair one million times easier. I’ve used all of the brands but currently I have an infinitiPro by Conair. Don’t laugh… just trust me :)
