Birchbox: December 2012

My boyfriends company is trying to hire a mobile developer and its so hard for smaller companies, when the large companies are snapping up any good mobile developer ASAP. All it takes is getting one good app in the app store and you will have job offers

 

Design is pretty lucrative in general. I think part of the problem is that companies don't really know whom to hire. For example, I spent a lot of time trying to get interviews for full-time webdesign portions, but a lot of the recruiters who came to my school were asking for people who majored in computer engineering or CS... and those people are NOT going to take $40k jobs where they design stuff for the web. First of all, because they can do a lot better most of the time even just graduating and second of all, because a lot of them aren't really well versed in webdevelopment. :

 

Whereas one look at my resume, it would've been thrown out because of what I (didn't) major in... even though I had the right skill sets. There's a huge gap in understanding of whom can do what between the layman and the people who actually work in the professionally IT industry.

Me too! They look so adorable! I can't find them anywhere on the website though? I've just seen them on their Instagram and the November video. Are they up on the site?

I love those rings too, but I would foresee a disaster regarding people getting the correct ring size. (They have a small(ring size 5-6) and large(7-8).

"They're so cute," they said. "You can layer them," they said. One bow ring is $38! Boe seems like a brand that would show up on Sneakpeeq someday though, so maybe it can be picked up at a discount price on there in the future. BB always has sales too.

 

Personally, I'd rather splurge on beauty items or clothes!

I have oily hair too and use it!  Although, my hair is very short - i still need to "wash" every day - but it's not as oily as it used to be i think.  I'd give it a shot!

I am thinking about getting a second BB sub.

Any tips on how to avoid duplications?

I want both boxes to link to my one account if possible.

Not sure how to do that though.

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

You can't link both boxes to the same account. And I think the best way to avoid duplications would be to do 2 completely different profiles, which I've done and I still receive duplicates. I don't think you can really count on anything but not receiving duplicates for the same profile. Other than that, it's a crapshoot.

If you're on the ipad, you should try Puffin as a browser.  Try their free version first, but I ended up buying it after the flash trial expired, because I can watch shows and such that you can't with safari.  It's a little persnickety, but I love having it and it shoooould work for doing reviews until they wise up and make an app.

Yay Christmas babies and always getting ripped off on presents! lol. I always disclaim to my friends I'm only getting them one gift but when their birthdays actually come 'round... welp... ^^;; I'm a softie at heart.

I hope there will be a glittery nail polish. Last holiday season they gave out the Zoya gems and jewels minis and some things that aren't hair oils, face wash or health bars :) 

 

speaking of nail polish, it's finals time, so of course I needed to swatch and organize all my nail polish. turns out only 3/277 are red, so how about a red, Birchbox!1000

 

Only 14 pages left to write... yet I think the laundry needs folding, desktops need cleaning and I feel like a face mask and a hair treatment... oh the pre-essay writing rituals of an English major in the last stretches to graduation....

ahhh lucky - I'm also a pre-graduation english major (with pre writing rituals...time to clean the baseboards bahah) but I have 47 pages to write, then 5 finals, then SWEET, SWEET FREEDOM!

I'd be happy to get a glittery/flakie nail polish next month! I love to wear sparkly polishes during the holiday season and wouldn't mind more to try out!

I'm hoping for the new Color Club holos.  Those are *amazeballs*.  They just pulled them from the store (they have them mislabeled on the site, and the warehouse *still* messed up my order even though I ordered one of each, so there are some issues they need to address before they put them back up on the site), but I'm hoping they go back up soon and/or show up in December boxes.  I will *always* take another bottle of a linear holo even if it's a color I already have (I'm already plotting how to get my hands on the complete collection of holos that China Glaze has on tap for the spring even though I don't think the release date is set yet, and half of them will probably look *horrible* with my skin tone, and the ones that *will* work with my skin tone are probably dupes of shades I already have).

If you're on the lookout for those, I heard Urban Outfitters released a series of these polishes as well that are nearly identical to at least three of the colours: http://goldenankh.blogspot.com/2012/11/urban-outfitters-pink-holo.html (not my blog...)

 

I'm not into holo polishes and I don't support UO for ethical reasons against their business practices, but I don't believe in shooting the messenger either. I'm not sure if these are even in stores anymore since apparently they went super fast.

I would be SO HAPPY with a nail polish! I put nail polish as my "splurge" item and still didn't get one in last month's box. :/ Maybe in December I will! :)

yikes. we have a class that we have to take that is a 15-20 page research paper, but my 14 this semester are two separate 7 pagers. Our professors aren't trying to kill the graduate student readers. but 7 really means 6, because they always grade nicer if you paper is short and succinct. I get the best grades on the papers where I short the requirement.

 

I lucked out in my third English class, our Final is a scene performance. The prof is a pretty well know playwright, so its been presentations and performances as our main assignments. Quite enjoyable.

Girlll I am with you on the UO thing. Their beliefs as a company do not coincide with mine. On top of that, their crap is overpriced thrift store clothes. It amazes me what people will pay for that stuff.

http://theweek.com/article/index/220370/racist-navajo-attire-and-7-other-urban-outfitters-controversies there's some examples, they are also known for knocking off indie designers. I know that in fashion copyrights don't really exist, but it still sucks.  Forever 21 is pretty crap at that too. http://youthoughtwewouldntnotice.com/blog3/?s=urban+outfitters some examples of that.

    • Whether you’re a college girl who will be waking up for an 8am class and going out at night, or a super mom who will be juggling work, taking her kids to school, making dinner, and soccer games, makeup that lasts all day is extremely beneficial! Who wants to worry about reapplying five times a day? If you follow these tips, you can put on your makeup in the morning and not have to worry about those annoying touch ups! Start With a Clean Face Applying makeup to a fresh face is the best way to make it last. Make sure you remove your makeup at night and then wash your face in the morning before putting on your makeup. It’s also a great idea to use a good moisturizer, such as our Citrus Stem Cell Intense Moisture Lock Creme. It helps improve skin’s complexion, elasticity, and texture, and also smooths wrinkles. Use a Primer – On Your Face and Your Lids Makeup primer makes the perfect base because it helps minimize pores, erase imperfections, and makes your makeup look better and last longer. Make sure aside from using a basic primer that you use an eye primer as well. It’s a must if you are wearing eyeshadow or liner so that it looks as clean and crisp at night as it did when you first put it on! Choose Oil-Free, Long Lasting Products The products you choose make a huge difference. Products that aren’t oil-free may not last as long because the oils will eventually make them fade. Go ahead and spend that extra $2 for the foundation that says “long lasting.” It’s worth it! Don’t Forget Pressed Powder and Setting Spray  Once your look is complete, finish your look with a pressed finishing powder and setting spray! These products are designed to keep your makeup in place and also help remove any excess oil. Keep Your Hands Away From the Finished Product Try not to touch your face throughout the day! Not only can touching your face lead to breakouts, but the oils on your skin will remove your makeup.
