Get A Limited Edition Snow Day Box—A $105 Value For Just $39!

There is something magical about a snow day—it’s an unexpected treat that gives you the chance to sleep in, cozy up, and actually relax. Whether you’re forced to hibernate because of the elements or you just love the idea of spending some quality time in your jammies, we have the perfect at-home amenity kit: our new limited edition Birchbox Home: Snow Day. But instead of telling you how awesome it is (spoiler: there’s a custom Scrabble set!), we thought it would be waaaay more fun to have our editorial director Mollie give you a tour of the contents. And yes, that’s her real apartment!

Color, Pattern, and Fun: Jonathan Adler Weighs in on His Favorite Colors and Staying Energized

image

If you saw the recent news that we’ve moved into a new office—complete with bright walls and loads of couches—you could probably tell we’re big fans of colorful environments. So it felt only natural that we interview one of our favorite designers and a huge proponent of color, Jonathan Adler, for an article this month about increasing your energy with the five senses.  His advice for staying energized? “Surround yourself with the stuff you love.  And when in doubt, add wallpaper. Color, pattern, fun: what’s not to love?” 

“My favorite colors are the turquoise blue of the sea and the sky, the fluffy white of the occasional cloud, and the blazing orange of the sun. If I could live in a world of turquoise and orange only, I’d be very happy.”

Whoa! We Can’t Get Over This Louis Vuitton Bathroom

This bathroom bears a striking resemblance to a handbag. (Photo: Curbed)

While I love designer handbags as much as the next girl, I think this Louis Vuitton-themed bathroom proves that sometimes there really can be too much of a good thing. This extravagant decor is part of a condo listed for sale in San Pedro, California, and you may be surprised to learn that it’s not the only time in recent history that an excessive use of designer logos have cropped up in home decorating.

Last-Minute Gift Guide: What Birchbox Staffer Bene is Getting Her Dad

Eek, it’s the final hour for gift-finding! Just in case you still haven’t found presents for your loved ones, here’s some last-minute inspiration courtesy of our staffers. Today, our Director of Editorial Operations, Bene is sharing her top 5 picks for her dad. (December 19th—today!—is the last day to order from our Shop to receive your orders by December 24. Go now!)

1. PRORASO Shaving Cream
As soon as I saw this concentrated, creamy soap highlighted in a Birchbox Man video, I knew my dad would dig it. It’s emblematic of Italian style (just like Pops!) and will look great in the ceramic shaving cup he inherited from my grandfather, who owned a barbershop.

Miss Ladyfinger Shares Her Holiday Gift Guide
Ah, the holidays—the greatest gift-giving time of the year. We know how tough it can be to come up with the perfect present for every friend, acquaintance, co-worker, and loved one in your life, which is why we’ve turned to our favorite tastemakers to tell us what they’ve got their eye on this season. Today we’re spotlighting nail art genius Taryn Multack of Miss Ladyfinger. 
1. While I love to stock up on cold weather accessories, I hate covering up the nail art that I’ve just spent so much time on. For me, hand-warmers are the answer. The added touch of embellishment on this pair from Topshop is very Gossip Girl.
2. Speaking of manis, I have at least 50 different glitter polishes in my collection, and Deborah Lippmann’s sparklers stand out the most. This Let’s Go Crazy shade is one of my favorites. It has dimension and it’s the perfect holiday hue.
3. How sweet are these little star studs? A great go-to gift for a best friend or a sister.
4. While sipping drinks bundled up in a cozy sweater, I’ll definitely be dreaming of a warm weather vacation. These Jonathan Adler coasters transport you somewhere far off (even if just temporarily) and they make the perfect hostess gift. 
5. No one wants chapped lips, especially when there’s mistletoe around. I love hydrating balms that tingle like this one from Coola, which is made with organic ingredients and tastes yummy. Did I mention that it has SPF?
6. As a New York City dweller, I love to peep other people’s iPhone cases on the subway. I saw this one once and fell in love. After hunting it down, it turned out that it’s by Free People and they have a great assortment of eye-catching cases.
7. This Corkcicle is one of Oprah’s favorite things, and now it’s one of mine. It chills your white wine while corking it to keep it fresh. Not to mention that it comes in a variety of colors. Genius!
8. There’s nothing quite like coming home to a delicious-smelling apartment during the holidays. This statement candle from Illume comes in two woodsy scents, Woodfire and Balsam and Cedar, and it’s very stylish. Anyone would love to receive this. 
9. My brother will definitely be getting one of these bill holders for the holidays. He’ll appreciate the humor, not to mention that I’m replacing his wallet for the umpteenth time.
10. My favorite part of the holidays is bundling up, which is why I love this lace-print sweatshirt. The short sleeves make it a great transition piece for spring too.

Snapshots of JONATHAN ADLER’S posh downtown store—everywhere we looked beautiful displays dazzled us. (Photo: putucos.com)

Last night, we teamed up with one of our favorite interior designers, JONATHAN ADLER, to throw an awesome event for our New York subscribers. Birchboxers had the chance to checkout the design maven’s insanely chic Soho outpost and shop Adler’s signature candles, adorable accent pillows, and quirky home décor essentials

We caught up with our always-lovely subscribers and indulged in spiked hot chocolate. Adding to the festive scene, Color Club®'s nail art experts were giving on-trend manis and Sweetery NYCs food truck (conveniently located right outside the store) served up delectable s’mores. Here are some of our favorite pics from the event.

Hooray! Meet Our New Home Shop + Snag a Limited Edition Box

When I think of my dream New York City apartment, I picture a light and airy penthouse loft with a king-size canopy bed and views of Central Park—oh, and a functional dishwasher and a shower drain that doesn’t clog. While I’m still firmly entrenched in my IKEA days, that doesn’t mean I can’t get in touch with my Elle Decor side. That’s why I’m so psyched to announce our new Home Pop-Up Shop, a curated collection of our favorite (affordable) kitchen gadgets, gourmet foods, room accessories, and more.

If you don’t have time to browse our Pop-Up Shop, the easiest way to try some of these new goodies is to pick up our very first Limited Edition: Home box, which we designed with holiday entertaining in mind. It makes a great gift for a hostess or relative—I already snagged one for my mom and dad this morning—or you can use it as a dinner party toolkit. Click through to learn more about the goodies inside!
