  1. I too have been a subscriber since day 1 but have not heard anything about my box so I contacted them today and received the stock response "our Summer Box is shipping now from earliest members to newest and should be complete by June 15, 2016". I think what they failed to mention is that "influencers" and bloggers are top priority and they will get the rest of the subs mailed by mid to late June. Maybe this is what happens when a box doesn't sell as well as they hoped but to me it just appears to be straight up lying.
  2. I received mine today! Overall, the bag is really nice. It appears very well made and I love that it's made in the USA. Even though the bag itself doesn't have finished edges the strap does which is crucial for me...I hate it when unfinished straps shed leather bits all over. The one small gripe is that it's definitely a different color IRL than in the photos...more brown than saddle if that makes any sense. Oh, and I wish it came w/ a small dust bag.
  3. I was just thinking about which box is my fav and I think it has to be fall because of the watch. I love that watch to point that I've even bought the white version. Summer was awesome because Cambridge Satchel is an old fav of mine and the sarong is gorgeous (even though it's not yet been used). Spring was great because of the sunnies (still using them) and the cool pearly nail polish. And Winter is probably last place because of the two jewelry items and I don't love either one. Although, I do like the shimmery wine colored nail polish. I'm on the fence about next year...looking forward the Spring spoiler.
  4. I just received my box and I have some notes... Why put a festive candy on the front of the booklet if you're not going to include one in the box? The bracelet isn't that small. I do not have petite wrists and I think it fits fine...it is slightly adjustable. The headband comes nicely wrapped in tissue (inside the poly bag) so it's ready for gifting. Also, it is indeed 100% cashmere and feels super cozy. I think my mom will appreciate it. The candles and holders are nice enough but definitely not thrilling. The Lippy are pretty universally usable/neutral but not very special. I guess that's the main issue here...it's not bad but it's not special enough for a Special Edition box. Oh, and the perfume sample is not at all okay for a Special Edition box. Would it even be okay as one of the items in a monthly box?
  5. Mine has shipped and is scheduled arrive Monday Monday Monday!
  6. Sad news, Grace confirmed that there will be no more Design Sponge Quarterly Boxes... "Sadly, Quarterly changed their operation policies and we’re not continuing with the series." But what makes it even more crappy is that Quarterly is still offering subscriptions for Design Sponge when they must realize this box is no longer happening.
  7. Well, it's confirmed. This box is not for me. I was hoping for some color and bling for the holidays but these items are not delivering. I don't even know who I would gift them to.
  8. I also find it odd that this tray is not currently offered at NM - maybe it's only available in-store?? In previous years, the spoiler was the most valuable item in the box (the throw and the clutch). Really hope that's not the case here. On the mela website the material of the tray is listed as "bone" - does this mean real animal bone?
  9. Great info - thanks! Both previous year's boxes had eight items so I wonder if that means less overall value this year? Or maybe higher value items?
  10. Have items in previous NM boxes all been from that year's NM Christmas Book? I just got the catalog in the mail over the weekend and was wondering... Thanks!
  11. Tracking shows my estimated delivery is Friday...fingers crossed it makes it before the weekend.
  12. forgot the picture... I really like the bag but I've been a fan of Cambridge Satchel Co. for a while now. Love that they are all made in England. And white is a color I would never choose so it's fun to receive it in a sub box.
  13. Sorry that's just the bad lighting/my poor photography. It's actually very white..maybe with more yellow than blue tone. Here is another picture of it on top it's dustbag...
  14. Sure thing! And a fun tidbit from the booklet is that the Nippies can also be used in shoes as heel pads or insoles.
  15. Mine has been delivered to the mailroom...hope to have it in my hands by noon. Very excited!
