Birchbox Staffers’ Summer Guilty Pleasures

image

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 don’t play music at Birchbox HQ very often (with the exception of our workday workout tunes), but you can regularly find our Birchbox Man editors Martin and Kyle wearing stylish ear buds and bopping to their personal playlists. (Correction: Birchbox Men do not bop; they jam.) Now—finally—they’re sharing with the rest of us. Check out the Birchbox Man Best of 2012 Playlist with appearances by Alabama Shakes, Fun., The XX, Frank Ocean and more. These tracks were made for working out, hanging out, and chilling out.

Take a listen and tell us: What were your favorite songs of 2012?

For the times when you do want to broadcast your playlist, try Triple C Designs’ iSpeeker. Birchbox Man calls it the boombox for our era. 

A Holiday Playlist For All Your Party Needs

The Birchbox office is buzzing with extra energy today since tonight is our Holiday Party! (w00t!) Of course that means we need some stellar jams to accompany our festivities—sadly ‘N Sync’s Christmas Album just won’t do for a masquerade. Luckily, one of our favorite event designing gurus—Carlo Geraci of Carlo Says…—has created a ready-made playlist packed with seasonal tunes to rock to all night long. Enjoy!
