It is from http://www.sp3ctrum.com/Women-Support-Women.html (this also has more info but i will sum it up!)

It is a monthly box (25$), that sends out different products from small women owned business. These products can be makeup, accessories, clothes, soap, etc. It changes monthly. Each box comes with business cards so you know who to contact if you want to buy more of a certain item. There are only 100 boxes a month so they have a personalized feel. I like knowing I'm supporting small women owned business and i think its really nice to get items you know you wont get in any other boxes. =]

There used to be a "my little pink box" wonder if there is any affiliation.

 

Looks pretty plain to me, not something I would sub to. I have gotten picky with all these darn subscriptions!

I don't think they have any affiliation with them. I'm picky too so i understand where you are coming from. Its not perfect by any means, but i do like everything its stands for, and how its not like other subscriptions I'm already subscribed to.

Oh I hope you don't think I was coming off rudely. I appreciate what it stands for as well with small businesses. We need more of that!

I LOVE THE IDEA OF THIS!!! Our business is woman owned, but we work in a predominantly male operated industry

You should get in touch with Amber Rose, she is the one who sells the box on her site, maybe you can get your product in it!

Well we actually have a printing business in San Francisco, so I don't exactly know what type of product I would advertise. Our concentration is with architects, engineers, and constructors.

Hey guys, the January Box is now on sale! (Decembers is already sold out!) So if anyone is interested in this box you can get it here

http://thebigpinkbox...e-Big-Pink-Box/

this is not a referral link, just a link to the site so you can find out more information or purchase a box.

There is only 100 every month, so sale starts early!

I already got mine!

No, this is completely new and unrelated to that previous box. =] (well not totally new, its been out for a few months now, but still not related, Spectrum cosmetics runs this box and it is small women owned business who contribute their products.)

i found reviews of october and november if y'all want to see more

 

http://thecosmeholic...d-swatches.html
http://thecosmeholic...ber-review.html

 

i can see the appeal of it but the accessories scream tacky/cheaply made with a high mark up. the stuff i thought looked the most appealing was the soaps and cosmetics.

lol those are mine. i so agree about that to a point (the jewelery), the soaps and cosmetics were some of the best parts, but i just look at is as im supporting small women owned bussiness, and while some products may not be the best others i would have never got to try if i didn't get the box.

I'm just peeved at the idea of them sending a size small shirt to customers who may or may not be able to wear a size small. No way in hell would that fit me!  Why would you send out clothing without collecting sizes?!

hahaha i was wondering if they were yours or not! i love the mission behind it, and i know i would accumulate tons of accessories i wouldn't use but that's what gifts are for, right?

 

did you happen to sign up for december too? i'm interested in seeing who else they partner with.
